Dear lybrate user, I understand that your past keeps bothering you on and off. It appears to me that, may be you are feeling guilty/angry or ashamed about your behaviour or mistakes that you made in the past. We all make mistakes in life. What we do after realising our mistakes matters a lot. If you think you have hurt someone, talk to them and ask them to forgive you. Learn from past experience and do not let it happen again. But most importantly, if you genuinely feel sorry for what has happened in the past, then" forgive yourself" you are a human being and are likely to make mistakes. Take care that you don't repeat it again. Your past is over. Your future depends on what you do in the present, hence concentrate on the present. Have a goal and have a plan to achieve your goal. All the best.

Dear sir actually I have problem to our health I am unable to concentrate on my study due to some see object.

Dear sir actually I have problem to our health I am unable to concentrate on my study due to some see object.
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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

I am forget everything. Sometimes within a minute. what should i do to improve my memory?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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. In a calm disposition concentration is much better and you will be able to study better. You may need to make notes and reduce the quantity of material to be studied and that will make it easier. Today the syllabus is very heavy and so it is difficult but you must find ways of giving more important topics more of your time and attention and that way you will prioritize your effort. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine.

I'm preparing for my gate exam and want to study at least 10 hrs a day but I'm getting very sleepy everyone suggesting me to go for coffee but I have read somewhere that coffee reduces the thinking Capability .so is there any natural and effective way to be energetic and awake please give proper answer don't provide irrelevant ans.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Mr. lybrate-user feeling sleepy during exams usually occurs due to reasons like poor sleep, poor diet and stress. Try to schedule your studies. A target oriented schedule with daily targets to achieve can help you. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Try to take few breaks in between. Don't strain to read more than 3 hrs continuously. Use stick notes to read and highlight. Daily do mild exercises and yoga which can make you fresh and energetic for studies. Don't skip breakfast. Eat a healthy and balanced diet. Maintain a proper sleep pattern. If possible go for combined study for few hours daily to motivate yourself and study. Be relaxed and stay healthy. All the best for your exams.

Dear Gaurav, Welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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. Please search internet for "effective learning" techniques or you may consult a psychologist. Take care.

I lost my friend last year in a accident. From then I feel very depressed. Please help me
I am sorry to hear about your friend. An untimely and sudden death is extremely traumatic for the survivors. It must have been very difficult for you to bear the shock of your friend's sudden death in the accident. Give yourself more time to come out of this trauma. At the same time please understand that no one has control over" death" mostly it is seen that a person who is destined to die, dies somehow and another person may live a long life in spite of many odds. So it appears to be more of destiny or a chance whatever you may call it. You friend probably had to die. You may try to explore the meaning of death and/or what happens after death, as per your belief, you may find some solace there. Right now, try to meet other friends, and try to follow your usual routine. Your life will never be the same again but you have life ahead. Try to remember the good times you shared with your friend. Share your sorrow with his family and other close friends. Together, you all will find support in each other. Take care.

My friend is suffering from depression for 2 years. Can you please tell me that how can I help him?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
My friend is suffering from depression for 2 years. Can you please tell me that how can I help him?
The best thing you can do for him is to encourage him to seek help, and support him during the process. I suggest you consult a psychiatrist as two years is a long time for him to be like this. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely that he will be able to come out of it. Keep a close watch on him; if he begins to voice suicidal ideas or feels hopeless/worthless, take him to the psychiatrist immediately. Other than that, involve his family or friends who care about him to ensure he gets the appropriate treatment. Remain posted and aware of any changes in behavior.

General Physician,
What is panic disorder why this came, how to solve this disease? What symptoms came in human body? When this came att...
It is a psychiatric disease and Panic disorder is different from the normal fear and anxiety reactions to stressful events. Panic disorder is a serious condition that strikes without reason or warning. Symptoms of panic disorder include sudden attacks of fear and nervousness, as well as physical symptoms such as sweating and a racing heart.Underlying Causes of Panic Genetic Predisposition The first is that there is almost certainly a genetic predisposition to panic attacks. Some people are born likely to develop panic attacks under the right circumstances, and some people couldn't have a panic attack if you paid them. We're all born with a variety of innate tendencies. If you have panic attacks, this is one of yours. Anxious trends during childhood A second reason why people develop panic attacks is that as children, they may have grown up in an atmosphere which, for one reason or another, failed to teach them that the world was "their oyster", a safe place in which they could happily pursue their own enjoyment. Maybe there was an early death in the family, severe illness, or some other serious problem like alcoholism or divorce. Maybe the parents were themselves anxious and over protective, perhaps in response to their own anxiety disorder. Perhaps the child learned to spend too much time and effort taking care of others, trying too hard to please others, and feeling responsible for the happiness of others. A Response to the challenge of emerging adulthood The third reason why people develop panic attacks is that they often experienced a period of high stress and stressful changes in the year or so prior to the onset of the panic attacks. These might have been bad events, such as feeling trapped in a bad job or relationship, or experiencing the loss of family and/or friends. Or they may have had a lot of changes which weren't bad in themselves - finishing school, changing jobs, getting married, moving, buying/selling a home, having babies, etc. - but which had a cumulative stressful effect on the person to the point that he/she

I am 22 years old I am suffering from some kind of laziness every time what can I do to overcome this?
Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. When you sit and pave way for thinking, the mind does its duty and make you lethargic or lazy. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

I have forgot problem small small thing generally I forgot what should I have to do? Please advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. 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 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, 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.

My husband is 28 years old. He is taking alcohol and he is also smoker. please suggest me any medicine which have no sideeffect. please inform me side effect of tablet dizone.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Your husband may not only require medications but may require him to be in a program which involves understanding the harms and problems associated with alcohol and nicotine use. It involves dealing with the symptoms that he may experience as a result of stopping these substances and giving him enough reasons to quit and to stay quit. Dizone is disulfiram which is prevents one from drinking alcohol because it reacts with alcohol to give unpleasant feelings like increased heart beats, tremors, restlesness and giddiness and low blood pressure. It should be taken supervised.
