You need to do meditation and fulfill your needs first before sitting for studies. If you just sit for your studies as a burden you will never be able to concentrate. First decide and place your motive aim then look forward for it. However you can take biochemic tablets kali phos 6x once daily for 2 weeks and revert back.

Hello lybrate-user, it seems your are doing a lot of work. Working time also is more. Seems like you don't get much time for your self. Work load seems to be more than you can handle. Coming back to anger management. People don't know what you are going through. And it's not their fault that you are working so much. You have to take care of your self and your health. Anger mostly arises from some deficiency of and not others. You have to learn to handle stuff and people. Regarding your bp you should definitely visit a doctor and get it checked. The body has the tendency to adjust to your stress. But if your stress level increase to such a level that the body cannot adjust anymore more and starts giving signals in the from of bp, diabetes, headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, stiffness etc. That the time one should understand that it's time to change our lifestyle and eventually our thoughts.

Usually memory will get affected after a traumatic head injury or any other issues in the brain or age related wear and tear only. People may feel that their memory is very bad during their stressful situations or while during the depression. There is no medicine to improve the memory.

Dear lybrate-user, thanks for the question. I went through the question and I do understand your problems. The duty of mind is to think and if you are unable to provide any creative task to your mind, it will always think. Naturally the thinking process will drift towards negative teritory. To control thinking you should always try to be creative, entertaining yourself and be busy. During work, you should be passionate and dedicated. Always try to learn something from the work which makes your mind engaged. I hope my answer is satisfatory. I am further available for clarifications. Take care.

I am not able to concentrate on studies. Due to depression. Feeling low every time. Always in a an irritated mood. Low confidence. And absent mindless, stress. Please proscribe some medicine's.

Dear , you don't need any medicines. 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.

There are always ways to solve a problem but because of our negative and pessimistic thinking we can not see the right path. Science and psychology says whenever u r in deep stress just stop and take a deep breath, keep calm and let ur wise mind take decisions, which usually in stress can not cum up to think and give u a right way of thinking.

HOW TO PRACTICE EMOTIONAL FIRST AID
You put a band aid on a cut or take antibiotics to treat an infection, right? No questions asked. In fact, questions would be asked if you didn't apply the necessary first aid.. So why isn't it true of our mental health? We are expected to just "get over" our psychological wounds- when if anyone has thought over rejection and stressed over failure, knows only too well, emotional injuries can be just as crippling as physical ones. If there was a way to bandage a broken heart, everyone would be wearing a cast then. We need to learn to practice emotional first aid. Here are 7 ways to do so:

1. Pay attention to Emotional Pain and respect it: The body has a way of telling that something is wrong and needs to be taken care. We get pain, fever, headache etc. The same is true for emotional pain. If a rejection, bad mood, failure is getting the better of you then you need to treat it. Respect and accept your emotions rather than brushing them away. For eg. loneliness can be devastatingly damaging to physical and mental health, so when you or your loved ones are feeling emotionally or socially isolated, you need to take action.

2.Redirect your gut reaction when you fail: The nature of psychological wounds makes it easy for one to lead to another. Failure can often drive you to focus on what you can’t do instead of focusing on what you can. That can then make you less likely to perform at your best, which will make you even more focused on your shortcomings, and on the cycle goes. To stop this sort of emotional spiral, learn to ignore the post-failure “gut” reaction of feeling helpless and demoralized, and make a list of factors that you can control were you to try again. For instance, think about preparation and planning, and how you might improve each of them. This kind of exercise will reduce feelings of helplessness and improve your chances of future success.

3.Monitor and protect your self-esteem: When you feel like putting yourself down, take a moment to be compassionate to yourself.
Self-esteem is like an emotional immune system that buffers you from emotional pain and strengthens your emotional resilience. As such, it is very important to monitor it and avoid putting yourself down, particularly when you are already hurting. One way to “heal” damaged self-esteem is to practice self-compassion. When you’re feeling critical of yourself, do the following exercise: imagine a dear friend is feeling bad about him or herself for similar reasons and write an email expressing compassion and support. Then read the email. Those are the messages you should be giving yourself.

4.When negative thoughts are taking over, disrupt them with positive distraction:
When you replay distressing events in your mind without seeking new insight or trying to solve a problem, you’re just brooding, and that, especially when it becomes habitual, can lead to deeper psychological pain. The best way to disrupt unhealthy rumination is to distract yourself by engaging in a task that requires concentration (for example, do a Sudoku, complete a crossword, try to recall the names of the children in your fifth class). Studies show that even two minutes of distraction will reduce the urge to focus on the negative unhealthily.

5. Find meaning in loss: Loss is a part of life, but it can scar us and keep us from moving forward if we don’t treat the emotional wounds it creates. If sufficient time has passed and you’re still struggling to move forward after a loss, you need to introduce a new way of thinking about it. Specifically, the most important thing you can do to ease your pain and recover is to find meaning in the loss and derive purpose from it. It might be hard, but think of what you might have gained from the loss (for instance, “I lost my spouse but I’ve become much closer to my kids”). Consider how you might gain or help others gain a new appreciation for life, or imagine the changes you could make that will help you live a life more aligned with your values and purpose.

6.Don’t let excessive guilt linger: Guilt can be useful. In small doses, it alerts you to take action to mend a problem in your relationship with another person. But excessive guilt is toxic, in that it wastes your emotional and intellectual energies, distracts you from other tasks, and prevents you from enjoying life. One of the best ways to resolve lingering guilt is to offer an effective apology. Yes, you might have tried apologizing previously, but apologies are more complex than we tend to realize. The crucial ingredient that every effective apology requires — and most standard apologies lack — is an “empathy statement.” In other words, your apology should focus less on explaining why you did what you did and more on how your actions (or inactions) impacted the other person. It is much easier to forgive someone when you feel they truly understand. By apologizing (even if for a second time), the other person is much more likely to convey authentic forgiveness and help your guilt dissolve.

7.Learn what treatments for emotional wounds work for you: Pay attention to yourself and learn how you, personally, deal with common emotional wounds. For instance, do you shrug them off, get really upset but recover quickly, get upset and recover slowly, supress your feelings, or …? Use this analysis to help yourself understand which emotional first aid treatments work best for you in various situations (just as you would identify which of the many pain relievers on the shelves works best for you). The same goes for building emotional resilience. Try out various techniques and figure out which are easiest for you to implement and which tend to be most effective for you. But mostly, get into the habit of taking note of your psychological health on a regular basis — and especially after a stressful, difficult, or emotionally painful situation.

Yes, practicing emotional hygiene takes a little time and effort, but it will seriously elevate your entire quality of life. I promise.

Use nicotine replacement in form of either lozenges or nicotine patch for few weeks, gradually taper it off, you can use anti craving drugs like bupropion or champix later on to reduce your desire to smoke. You should consult a psychiatrist for guidance and counselling.

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.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6 am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help.

Therapy along cognitive behavioural therapy will help. Start by recognising your thought processes just before and during a panic attack. Medication may have some benefit but unlikely to cure it on its own.

Developing a" feeling of liking" for a person due to some odd reasons is natural. You don't have to feel guilty for it. But you need to set limits for your likings. Going beyond a certain point would be disturbing for both of you and would be insulting feelings of someone you are married to. Your headaches could be due to stress and anxiety about the same. Consult a psychiatrist for counselling.
