Sir, I am 18 years old and I am good at study but now-a-days I am not able to concentrate. So tell me something to concentrate my mind and overcome my laziness. As I feel tired all the time.

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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

I feel depressed on very little things and can not be able to mix up with friends face and face. During exams I am not able to answer the questions even I know. Wht should I do?

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
It seems that due to study pressure you are in continuous stress. That might make you feel low and not interested. This stress is also affecting perhaps your focus, concentration and motivation for study. This in turn comes out as an exam anxiety. When you are worried before and/or during your exams that makes you forget your answers and blank out. I would strongly advice you to try things I am suggesting below. If you try these stress management techniques on a regular basis you will see positive changes in 2 to 4 weeks time. And then you may use 3 deep breath technique during your exam to stay calm. This will help you with recalling and figuring out the correct answer during exams. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day.

i'm currently diagnosed with adhd and believe it, but feel as though I diagnosed myself and not my psychariatrist. Just want a second opinion. I'm messy, have trouble with working memory, have motivation issues, get headaches somewhat frequently, have trouble falling asleep, feel numb/upset and lonely, and more similar things. At the same time, i'm very intelligent and often'aware' of what i'm doing wrong, but there's a disconnect to being able to change it. What can I do to help myself?

M. Phil Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Adhd is one of the most loosely used terms by psychologists and psychiatrists. It can really play havoc with one's self esteem. Even if you do have adhd, it can be overcome with a little bit of behavior therapy. Please stop labeling yourself and consult a psychologist so that you can come up with a plan that suits you.

I am 30 and I think I am facing memory issues. I used to think that I have bad memory and started noticing things more consciously to remember it but now, I feel like things sometimes just get deleted from my memory. Even reminding me related to other co-related incidences does not work sometimes. Sometimes I think it is not usual. Can you suggest or advise me if it is normal; if not, pls let me know what can I do about it.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is very appreciable that you have your own business at this young age. At your age, it is likely that you might take undue risks or take impulsive decisions which might land you in financial trouble. To avoid this make a systematic plan for you daily activities related to business, have a goal for every month and try to achieve it. Most importantly have a realistic goal. Take small and firm steps towards your goal. Also have some contingency plans ready, in case there is any set back. Please remember there will be set backs in life, don't lose courage, take situations head on, try to explore more options to come out of a tricky situations. Understand your capacities and take risks or burden accordingly. If required seek advice from experienced elders at home.

I have social anxiety. I become nervous and blanked out in social situations. I start Sweating even in normal weather because of nervousness and social anxiety. What healthy tips can you provide me for dealing with social anxiety and stop over thinking about situations? How to convince me that not always someone is judging me?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good Afternoon ~ Social Anxiety Disorder is the extreme fear of being scrutinized and judged by others in social or performance situations: Social anxiety disorder can wreak havoc on the lives of those who suffer from it. This disorder is not simply shyness that has been inappropriately medicalized. Although they recognize that the fear is excessive and unreasonable, people with social anxiety disorder feel powerless against their anxiety. They are terrified they will humiliate or embarrass themselves. Symptoms may be so extreme that they disrupt daily life. People with this disorder, also called social phobia, may have few or no social or romantic relationships, making them feel powerless, alone, or even ashamed. It needs to be appropriately treated with medications and I will be able to help. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

I am 30 of a male suffering from generalized anxiety disorder facing symptoms like severe numbness in head, world seems dreamy dreamy, fear in public, foggy and distorted vision always thinking how I ll cum out of this. Please help since 2 years I am having this eating vegetables and fruits but still its not curable. Rply and tell me whether slowly slowly this scary symptoms will vanish or not. One of psychologist told me there no no medicine to cure anxiety eat healthy n sleep healthy is the only way to cure it.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
The psychologist who told there is no medicine to cure anxiety is a quack (non-medico), trying to portray he knows everything. It s easy for you to google and find there are wonderful medicines for anxiety, but should be taken with psychiatrist advise only. Anxiety occurs due to reduced Serotonin levels/ transmission in the mind (brain), when SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) are given, this is restored and the symtpoms resolve in 2-6 weeks. Kindly do not consult many quacks (non-medical, yappers) in this forum and in reality, who know nothing about medicine, but use prefix as doctors and behave like medical doctors advising innocent people like you wrongly.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

Smoking is an unhealthy alternative to alcohol. If chocolate and sugar helps you control the craving, you may have them in certain limited amounts. Visit a dietician for healthier diet options.

Dear When you read about cancer. Also read about the Lifestyle changes, food and meditation that have proved as good positive treatment for cancer patients. There are so many good things you can do to avert cancer. Even if you do not have it. It is good to stay safe and follow good habits. Also, for your own sake. Do the standard blood tests to rule out any form of cancer. This will make your mind positive that you do not have any cancer. Regards.

IMPROVE YOUR CONCENTRATION

PG Hom, London, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
IMPROVE YOUR CONCENTRATION

with the exams approaching, the pressure increasing and the anxiety reaching the pinnacle; being able to concentrate on what you study and remembering it is the most important concern of the hour.

 Here are some tips which will help you to concentrate on your studies and remember whatever you have studied:-

* keep your cell phone aside. These days, the cell phone addiction has become more difficult to cure than any other addiction. It is better to switch off your cell phone and keep it in a place far from your reach so that you can concentrate on what you are needed to concentrate on rather than what is pulling your attention.

* make a timetable and stick to it. Make a proper schedule of each day which will include what time will you wake up, when you will eat, when you will take a nap etc. Even include what subject and what chapters you will study each day. This will make your revision planned and hassle free.

* take adequate sleep. It is necessary to sleep at least 6 hours in a day even during exams as your brain needs that much time to recuperate from the stress and strain. Studies have shown that taking an adequate sleep of 6 hours in a day, increases productivity and improves your ability to remember what you have studied that day.

* take a short nap after lunch. The grasping ability reduces after eating lunch and hence it is a good habit to take a power nap of 7 to 8 minutes after lunch.

* keep your body properly fed and properly hydrated. There is no specific food that will help you improve your grasping ability. All the foods are important enough to provide the necessary nutrition to your brain and, in turn, improve its grasping and retaining ability.

* lastly, don't over exert yourself. Stress is only going to make you forget what you have read. If possible, perform meditation for 10 to 15 minutes in the day to relax your mind and refresh you for the whole day of studying.

For the last 15 years I am taking medicine for Depression i.E. Fludec 20 mg in the morning and Atarax 10 mg. In the night. Also take for stomach one spoon of Belgiri Churan in the morning. But some time I feel good and sometime bad. Can I leave Allopathic medicine now?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Before leaving it just think twice. Because suddenly leaving such medicines will cause harm.Instead start homoeopathic medicines.Which will help you to overcome your depression as well as help you to leave your medicines also.

Hey Dr. My memory become week what should do. Whatever I studied in past I have forgot. If work yesterday today become clean many thing. If am too confuse from this. Plc help me.

If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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, 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. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.
