Hello Sir I think I'm patient of depression and stress because I get worried too early like fast heart beat, cool skin, Rapid Breathing, dry mouth and most important have headache these symptoms I feel. Can you guide me what is this ? How to lead a normal life ?

Hello Sir I think I'm patient of depression and stress because I get worried too early like fast heart beat, cool ski...
Dear lybrate user... Depression is a term now a days so liberally used by everyone around that everything causing distress to our body is called Depression. But in reality it is the condition with persistent and pervasive low mood that is low mood for almost throughout the day. Also has time criteria of at least 2 weeks and others. But from the symptoms you have explained it is clear that you have the feeling of being at the edge for most of the things throughout the day and have the physiological arousal symptoms. These are the symptoms suggestive of anxiety and if these are causing significant functional and social impairment for a long time to you, it may be called anxiety disorder. Depending upon the degree of impairment you may be benefited by bringing lifestyle changes with adequate stress management in life. If significant impairment is there you may require medications along with stress management and lifestyle changes like healthy food habits, regular 30 mins exercise and fixed sleep wake schedule. For full exploration and management get in touch.

Dear Doctor, I am facing porn addiction issue, can anyone help me to resolve the issue? Please help me.
Dear, quitting porn addiction is not child play. De-addiction therapy is an option for you. But in my suggestion, the best option would be, quit it now (today) and sustain it with your will power. Motivation therapy and mind power building therapy should help you.

I am 13 years old. When I am studying, I am not able to concentrate, and I get distracted easily. What should I do for it?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, CE (New York)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Start with a topic which you find interesting. Your sittings should be around 40 minutes as research has showed that average human concentration span is around 40-45 min. Don' t overtake coffee or tea, as they tend to make you anxious and worsen the concentration. Also regular exercising helps a lot in improving concentration.

How to improve concentration and memory speed ?

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.

Doctor my final exams are coming my concentration power is low how can I make concentration on my studies tell me solution.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

A lot of the reason may be true because of your age and a little stress perhaps. I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along 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 or coconut 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

I have fear problem of all so how to overcome it?
Dear this is called social phobia. If you do not feel confident in standing in public, difficulty in going at a place (like stage) where you are under scrutiny of others, if you are shying always and can not even converse properly in public, then it is already hampering your social life and ruining your confidence. You must take help of a psychiatrist/psychologist to get cured. I wish you all the best.

Why am I always think about anything without any important matter and what should i do to cure?

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Hi lybrate-user, Practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing.

Panic disorder fir quite along time may end up causing significant depressive symptoms due to the functional impairments it causes. It is advisable to consult a psychiatrist and start treatment. Treatment includes medications along with counselling and behaviour therapies to deal with severe episodes of anxiety. You may also try relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercises etc. For further details and queries you may consult me online.

I do over think and very depressed sometime negative thoughts comes also having lot of stress and anxiety.
Hi lybrate-user, First, you should stop over thinking. One famous proverb you should remember when you over think that is "too much of anything is good for nothing" it will damage you completely that is mind and body. Each and every individual differ from one to one, so this negative thoughts and depression is almost present among 50% of the population, there is nothing wrong, bcoz the world is like that nowadays, it depends or it all matters like how we preceive or how we take it deeply. So you should learn to ignore these thoughts and learn to divert at a second to a different activity or mind. If you need further assistance feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me. You can come in for an online consultation so that I could help you better. Take care. Do not worry. Be cool. With regards,

Hello, I am vedika 18 years. I just want to improve my concentration and sitting capacity to study. I usually study for 1 to 2 hrs. After that I get bored then I just keeps my books away so please suggest something. That increase my concentration.

Hi , Do'nt worry short term intervals are good for your studies. For improving your concentration at first you have to eliminate all the distractions from your study room. Try to take one task at a time. Our attention is limited, when you try to do several things at one time, then you necessarily have to divide your attention. Try to focus on the task at hand, if you are reading a book ask yourself how would you summarize it, and then try to recall it. Meditation is also helpful for improving your concentration. Thanks.
