I am getting lazy day by day. Can you please advice me how to increase my concentration in my studies. Im an engineering student.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu have to look for anemia and hypothyroid by doing blood CBC and TSH. CONCENTRATION TIPS Here���s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can���t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don���t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in���s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren���t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn���t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren���t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don���t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I���ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I���ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can���t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

HOW TO PRACTICE EMOTIONAL FIRST AID
You put a band aid on a cut or take antibiotics to treat an infection, right? No questions asked. In fact, questions would be asked if you didn't apply the necessary first aid.. So why isn't it true of our mental health? We are expected to just "get over" our psychological wounds- when if anyone has thought over rejection and stressed over failure, knows only too well, emotional injuries can be just as crippling as physical ones. If there was a way to bandage a broken heart, everyone would be wearing a cast then. We need to learn to practice emotional first aid. Here are 7 ways to do so:

1. Pay attention to Emotional Pain and respect it: The body has a way of telling that something is wrong and needs to be taken care. We get pain, fever, headache etc. The same is true for emotional pain. If a rejection, bad mood, failure is getting the better of you then you need to treat it. Respect and accept your emotions rather than brushing them away. For eg. loneliness can be devastatingly damaging to physical and mental health, so when you or your loved ones are feeling emotionally or socially isolated, you need to take action.

2.Redirect your gut reaction when you fail: The nature of psychological wounds makes it easy for one to lead to another. Failure can often drive you to focus on what you can’t do instead of focusing on what you can. That can then make you less likely to perform at your best, which will make you even more focused on your shortcomings, and on the cycle goes. To stop this sort of emotional spiral, learn to ignore the post-failure “gut” reaction of feeling helpless and demoralized, and make a list of factors that you can control were you to try again. For instance, think about preparation and planning, and how you might improve each of them. This kind of exercise will reduce feelings of helplessness and improve your chances of future success.

3.Monitor and protect your self-esteem: When you feel like putting yourself down, take a moment to be compassionate to yourself.
Self-esteem is like an emotional immune system that buffers you from emotional pain and strengthens your emotional resilience. As such, it is very important to monitor it and avoid putting yourself down, particularly when you are already hurting. One way to “heal” damaged self-esteem is to practice self-compassion. When you’re feeling critical of yourself, do the following exercise: imagine a dear friend is feeling bad about him or herself for similar reasons and write an email expressing compassion and support. Then read the email. Those are the messages you should be giving yourself.

4.When negative thoughts are taking over, disrupt them with positive distraction:
When you replay distressing events in your mind without seeking new insight or trying to solve a problem, you’re just brooding, and that, especially when it becomes habitual, can lead to deeper psychological pain. The best way to disrupt unhealthy rumination is to distract yourself by engaging in a task that requires concentration (for example, do a Sudoku, complete a crossword, try to recall the names of the children in your fifth class). Studies show that even two minutes of distraction will reduce the urge to focus on the negative unhealthily.

5. Find meaning in loss: Loss is a part of life, but it can scar us and keep us from moving forward if we don’t treat the emotional wounds it creates. If sufficient time has passed and you’re still struggling to move forward after a loss, you need to introduce a new way of thinking about it. Specifically, the most important thing you can do to ease your pain and recover is to find meaning in the loss and derive purpose from it. It might be hard, but think of what you might have gained from the loss (for instance, “I lost my spouse but I’ve become much closer to my kids”). Consider how you might gain or help others gain a new appreciation for life, or imagine the changes you could make that will help you live a life more aligned with your values and purpose.

6.Don’t let excessive guilt linger: Guilt can be useful. In small doses, it alerts you to take action to mend a problem in your relationship with another person. But excessive guilt is toxic, in that it wastes your emotional and intellectual energies, distracts you from other tasks, and prevents you from enjoying life. One of the best ways to resolve lingering guilt is to offer an effective apology. Yes, you might have tried apologizing previously, but apologies are more complex than we tend to realize. The crucial ingredient that every effective apology requires — and most standard apologies lack — is an “empathy statement.” In other words, your apology should focus less on explaining why you did what you did and more on how your actions (or inactions) impacted the other person. It is much easier to forgive someone when you feel they truly understand. By apologizing (even if for a second time), the other person is much more likely to convey authentic forgiveness and help your guilt dissolve.

7.Learn what treatments for emotional wounds work for you: Pay attention to yourself and learn how you, personally, deal with common emotional wounds. For instance, do you shrug them off, get really upset but recover quickly, get upset and recover slowly, supress your feelings, or …? Use this analysis to help yourself understand which emotional first aid treatments work best for you in various situations (just as you would identify which of the many pain relievers on the shelves works best for you). The same goes for building emotional resilience. Try out various techniques and figure out which are easiest for you to implement and which tend to be most effective for you. But mostly, get into the habit of taking note of your psychological health on a regular basis — and especially after a stressful, difficult, or emotionally painful situation.

Yes, practicing emotional hygiene takes a little time and effort, but it will seriously elevate your entire quality of life. I promise.

Hello Doctor, I am facing some psychological issues for a long time now and I am unable to overcome it, I need some professional advice. Tall women, I like them and feel more attracted towards them. But, I feel intimidated when they around me at work, in public transport or any event and also in family and friends. It doesn't matter if I know them or not my confidence and self esteem are always low around them. I couldn't think straight when they are around and couldn't able to make eye contact while having a conversation with them. It affects my communication skills a lot as well as my productivity. I have tried not to let these things affect me but there's no improvement. Also I tend to compare myself with them and then I self-pity my self and blame god, society, my family, ultimately feel distressed. I am short you must have assessed it by now. Sometimes I feel women don't find me attractive because I am short or anyone who is short in today's generation. While Growing up we all must have heard that "Women like tall men or they find tall men attractive and they would like to settle down with a tall man" Growing up I thought and treated these sayings as a cliché but now I think this cliche has become a fact for me. Whenever I have interacted with a girl, they always put me in their friend circle or see me as their brother. I don't hit on every girl I see, I am not a pervert. Yeah I have liked few girls, but they didn't feel the same about me when I told them about my feelings and I am totally cool with it, I have no hard feelings for them. But the aftermath is, this made me feel like that I am not good enough. SO COULD YOU PLEASE OFFER SOME ADVICE ON HOW I COULD LIVE EFFICIENTLY WITHOUT LETTING THESE THINGS AFFECT ME. THANK YOU.

Many couples make strange bedfellows. In other words, not all attractions are suitable according to appearances and yours will also likely be the same. There is a 'chemistry' as they say, or there is something that clicks when you find your true mate, to some extent. Tall, dark, ahndso0me men are a hard to come by, but the personality of an individual is dependent on five areas: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual fitness. How you carry yourself is more important than your height and shape and size. Then the most important feature to find in someone is their character. By now you must have assessed that these are things that you can develop. You need to develop good and admirable character judged by your value system. Your physical fitness is primed by regular exercise and diet. You may, in addition, attend a personality development course, good conversation course, public speaking course, and a self-grooming course to really project yourself as a suitable and desirable candidate. Above all, you must be happy with yourself first. You may be falsely seeking tall girls as a projection of your need to be tall. So develop your overall personality and you will see girls flocking to be your​ friend!

You can eat raw carrots at any time for maximum benefits. These foods are also good for your brain: MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week For your sleep problem, it looks like you are under some stress and you can follow the suggestions given below: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep. Meet a counselor if these techniques do not give you the desired result.

Are you illiterate? Then you could have a problem in this highly competitive work environment. If you have been laid off for just a few months, then do not get discouraged. If you have been fired, you may have a real problem. Otherwise, do persevere and actively seek employment according to your aptitude. Sometimes you may have to take up any job for the time being and keep on the lookout for a more suitable one that meets your career aspirations. Depending on your field of work, things may be easy or difficult. Giving up is never the right course. Life is a fight always but a disciplined approach will take you far and wide. If in the interim you are able to develop some more skills or attend courses that would enhance your marketability and make your r�sum� read even better, please undertake to do them. You could always explain to prospective employers that you used your time well and productively. That sure will impress companies and provide you with suitable openings. Of course, there are a lot of self-employment opportunities that anyone can do anytime, if they are determined and have some seed money: No qualifications, no literacy, no handicaps. You will be your own master and your results will depend entirely on you.

Be positive in thinking and ou will get job when it is time for you Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session

Please consult your doctor again and update him on your son's health. He might change the medicines or reduce the dose. You also have the option of changing your doctor. These medications usually come with many side effects. I suggest that you do your own research, read up and educate yourself and take an informed decision. The health of your son could be because of this medicine or something in his diet or the seasonal changes. Though allopathy medicines bring faster relief, they come with numerous side effects. On the other hand, ayurveda and homeopathy are gentler on the mind and body and fewer side effects and sometimes slow to show improvement. Nevertheless, you are doing a wonderful job as a parent and taking care of your son. Take care.
