How I can increase the concentration of my mind ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. You can follow these simple rules: Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, 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. Afternoons are a bad time to do study by reading. 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. The biggest killer of concentration is stress. If you are under any stress deal with that with a counselor and your focus will improve tremendously.

It is obvious that there is some lurking fear related basis for your discomfort i.e. you have an unresolved fear that has probably been provoked now for some reason. It is now so severe that you suspect, in a paranoid manner, that the bad will somehow turn back to harm you. This could happen if your defense mechanisms are strained for some reason or that you have not been keeping yourself fit in psychological and emotional ways that there is a vulnerability, and your mind is becoming suggestive. The ideal way to counter such imagined possibilities is to do a reality check: Is it even remotely possible and what is the evidence you have? If you have a confidante, you could crosscheck with that person to authenticate your belief. Mostly, you will find that your paranoid mind has been suggesting the possibility. There is also the likelihood of being guilty about something and that as a punishment for that crime you will suffer some retribution. You can also meet with a counselor and talk out these fears and get some realistic feedback and as well receive some training to stabilize your emotions and rejig your defenses. Regular vigorous aerobic physical exercise, good sleep, a stress-free lifestyle, some spiritual strengthening exercises, and proper sleep should take care of you rather well.

Am I an introvert? I don't like people getting to much into my life, I get irritated quickly, if my parents ask me any sorts of question I fire up, not wanting to meet new people, in short I'm happy and at my best only within my circle. I like to have my own space. I do have a bf but I'm never rude to him and I kind of see myself as a different person a better person with him.

Yes. You are an introvert. But being an introvert is not bad thing. Most people are not comfortable outside their own circle but this is not a problem for most of them. To overcome this, you can practice by having conversation with other people and face your fears. It is not easy in the beginning but it can help gradually.

Medicines and dosages will vary from person to person. Do not self-medicate too. Each person's constitution is different; their experiences are also different; the chemical imbalances, the chemical production and chemical receptacles vary sometimes in great many ways. Sometimes the cause for the depression will also vary. Also what you think is depression may be something else when seen in the context of the situation. So she must visit a doctor and let him or her determine the nature of the problem and what has to be administered and how much too.

It sounds like you are the one consuming this cough syrup! cough syrup addiction is worsened by increasing tolerance levels for the drug. If you are having a serious addiction and you cannot quit its use, you will have to admit yourself to a rehabilitation center and go through their program for a complete recovery. This type of treatment is ideal because it takes you away from the influences of people and circumstances that you have gotten conditioned to and will make it easier in a different geographical location. When you come out of the center you must continue with addiction counseling for three years at least before being free of the enslavement. You will also need to attend na meetings regularly and get a lot of support from other users who are also recovering. You will need to make some lifestyle changes and work on the stress that is normally the reason most youngsters get addicted to cough syrup. There is also the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factors, and the script issue that has to be worked upon with the counselor. You will need to start regular vigorous exercise, sleep well, and start on a healthy diet. You must follow a tight time schedule with interesting and productive activities. The counselor will also teach you new ways of finding joy without the use of chemicals. You should socialize with people, join new groups, attend conferences, meetings, seminars etc. To be involved with other important activities in your neighborhood. You will need to go for a thorough medical checkup and determine that there was no serious damage to your body because of the abuse.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. Please do not worry. Motivation needs to be always self. If you try to get motivation from external sources, You may get it for the time being, but naturally it will taper down and vanish within two days. You have to cultivate consistent self motivation. You have to change your attitude so as to have consistent self motivation. Take care.

Belief is a pre-requisite for achievement but a strong belief alone cannot make you achieve something. When you believe you can, you put in maximum effort. That takes you closer to your dream. However, there always are factors beyond one's control that help or keep us from executing our plan. More important than staying positive is to stay realistic. Know your potential, know your limitations and respect the factors beyond your control. Dreaming is good, but making plans and carrying them out one by one will take you closer to the dream. Also remember, failure is inevitable and not necessarily negative. It teaches us a lot. There are exercises available to improve your focus and attention. Games are available on every platform. Meditation also helps. Stay relaxed as much as you can. That is the most important.

9 years ago you would have been 14 years and you would have experienced only ?puppy love?. That would have been a very vulnerable time no doubt but you cannot take yourself and that relationship that seriously, surely. You are literally stuck in a time capsule! Forget your boyfriend you must and should move on emotionally. This fixation on him must die out eventually and this length of time of indulgence is just too much. You must first exorcise him out of your mind. You can either do that by talking him out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting on a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging him out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If he has ditched you, you must learn to forgive him for your own sake and live a life free of him eventually in the mind and then in the heart. He is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to him when he dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much when the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to his memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor.

Hello- kulathi is a very good stone dissolver, if you are not facing any stone than it might be possible that your stone is flushed out or it might become so small to cause obstruction hence pain. Don't stop kulthi, stop your alpha blocker and continue neeri syrup 2 tsp twice daily from now on to remove stone completely and to prevent its recurrence.

Without a professional diagnosis it is not correct to say that your wife has depression. First get her to see a psychiatrist and a counsellor to get a diagnosis and any treatment if needed. Mild and moderate depression can be treated a with counselling and lifestyle changes only. 1. Since you mentioned that she feels shy to talk because she doesn't know English, then grooming her English would be a good idea. Maybe someone can come home to teach her or some books will teach her the basics and then as she becomes more confident, she can go to common group classes where conversational English is taught. 2. She seems to be picking faults in others, because she's so aware of her own shortcomings. But to acknowledge and acept them openly is so difficult. Thus finding faults in others to raise your own self esteem is a common strategy that most people use. 3. As her caring husband, you could show her your loving care without any comparison or fault finding. She might be feeling lonely as she's not meeting many people. Arguing and fighting will make situation worse only. Tell her that you care for her and want her to enjoy her life. Ask her what she wants to do about her problem. Living in isolation is a short cut method meant. To relieve anxiety and will not work out in the longer ŕun. 4. Invite people who are considerate of her condition and do not make fun of her. Take her to see English movies with subtitles when she's picked up some language. Slow exposure will help her gain mastery over the language. 5. Praise her when ever she achieves something. Encourage her when ever she makes a mistake. Scolding and punishing has negative effect. 6. Try to see her point of view wrt your parents. Don't try to be the mediator by taking sides. It is best that she talks to them about her problems in an assertive manner and seeks solutions.
