At your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with.

You can change your room. Give mobile to your mom while studying. You may download few relaxing music or instrumental music to run in background while studying. This will help you in getting control on your poor attention, so that you may concentrate on your studies. All the best.

I am 37 years old. I have bad habit of tobacco chewing. But now I have to stop it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

Hey Doctor, I am Jitesh Dutta. I am going through lots of stress regarding my job as my parents wants me to do a government job and I hate to go for a government job. My current company is a start-up and is paying a less amount. My parents are in government job and earns enough. They says you are working over clock and still you don't get enough salary. I had tried to explain them a start-up takes some time to grow lots of time nearly 10 to 20 times a month. But when a family of their arrives it starts over and over again. Yesterday I got as upset that I wanted to ask that friend of their weather I should go for a suicide attempt or he would like to stop his theory for me and my career. My parents are so argumentative that they never admit their mistakes even which me or my sister or even anyone in this whole world prove that they are wrong. I know that the time once passes will never come back and parents are not wrong. And I also know that this company Will grow and very fast and will grow very soon. Company provides engineering solution to very big companies in India. In any company in India no engineer is hired as an engineer but as a manager. So if any problem comes up we are called to provide solutions. And we are very good at it. Kindly provide me with a reasonable advise to work on.

Generation gap is the difference between opinions and attitudes of individuals of different ages. Few ways to deal with the issue can be 1. Ascertain whether this is the kind of work you actually wanted to do in your life, may be the initial payoffs be little but you have the confidence of growth both professionally and financially. 2. Do not belittle parents even if their advice may not be agreeable, respect their opinion gracefully (you may not accept but at least respect). 3. Build up support for your opinion by friends and relatives who agree with your views and make a healthy conversation with parents explaining the pros and cons of continuing the current job. 4. If they still don't agree ask for some time to show your potential and growth in the aspiring career. 5. Believe in your goals your parents would eventually trust you. Seek professional guidance by speaking to a counselor if required.

How to concentrate on studies?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear ,you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Dear Sunaina. Welcome to lybrate. I understand your problem. Concentration is attention span. Attention span is at any given time is less than 10 minutes for any person. You should be able to be creative in your learning tasks. Over and above you should have interest and dedication to whatever you do to have proper attention. Search google for '' effective learning methods '' and adopt some of them. Your concentration will improve. Consult a psychologist online for counseling. Exam related anxiety is performance anxiety. Once you learn to study systematically your performance anxiety will be gone. Take care.

Hi, My sympathies for you loss, however, I do not write to just offer placating words of comfort that will make you feel good for a short time and then leave you feeling incomplete again. What you probably might not be aware of is that there is considerable evidence that some trauma is good for long term growth. The predicament you find yourself in is no doubt distressing and likely makes you feel that you are lacking in something and are not' whole' or complete. Any life event that causes distress because of a perceived loss or separation from a loved one causes primarily two things - it makes you want to recover or somehow regain what you have lost and it disrupts your sense of identity. All of us rely on others to make our lives meaningful, happy and complete. We want to feel desired and loved and cherished. But that doesn' t always happen. Remember, that right at this moment you ARE complete. You have everything that you need to lead a purposeful and meaningful life. This doesn' t mean that you will not have obstacles or disappointments in your way. What it means is that you can choose to proactively cope with and look beyond your loss or predicament. You could begin by taking the following steps: - When memories, sorrow and distressing thoughts arise, don' t judge yourself or others. Try not to analyze or get too drawn into your thoughts. Observe them without participating in them. - If necessary, find a close friend or family member to talk to. Someone you can open yourself to without fear of being judged. - Cope by asking yourself" what can I do to make the situation better" Try and come up with ways to structure your day with activities that you enjoy, stay engaged with some routine or work or study. See if you can spend some time exercising or reading. - Don' t be too harsh on yourself. If you find yourself musing and anguishing over what you have lost, gently remind yourself that you cannot undo the past, and that some distress is a normal part of life. Remember to affirm that you have the capability to overcome difficult circumstances. - Spend some time considering that there are so many millions in this world who have had devastating losses and heartbreak. Even though you are in pain, you still probably have much to be grateful for like a family perhaps, or good music to listen to, or something as basic as food and shelter! A sense of gratitude helps overcome the feeling of being a victim and pushes you to look for solutions. - Take small steps. Be proud of yourself if you accomplish something, even if it is just reading what is written here. -If you like to read, read inspirational material. Spend time taking walks if possible, and do remember to get a good nights sleep, and eat well. I wish you well and hope that in time, you will come to terms with your loss and find a sense of balance!

You can definitely come out of this situation and maintain a healthy life. Get support of your family members also to maintain a healthy routine.

Triggers are the people, places, things, and situations that trigger your urge to smoke. On your quit day, it's best to avoid them all together. Here are a few tips to help you outsmart some common smoking triggers: • Throw away your cigarettes, lighters, and ash trays if you haven't already • Avoid caffeine, which can make you feel jittery; try drinking water instead • Hang out with non-smokers; most people don't smoke, so you should have options • Go to a place where smoking isn't allowed; unless you want to break the law, you won't light up • Get plenty of rest and eat healthy; lack of sleep and too much sugar can trigger you to smoke • Consult me for homeopathic treatment. recommend me by clicking on recommend option and leave feedback.

Dear Aman, This is not the age to get Alzheimer's. Symptoms are common for many diseases. For example cough can be due to allergy or sore throat or TB. Go to a doctor with your symptoms and get diagnosed.
