Dear lybrate user. Its a very nice question. Every person on this earth is different and we all fall on a range of peraonality traits say for example from extroversion to introversion. This range for a person is predecided by the genes he is having and getting expressed, while exatly where a person will fall is decided by his upbringing that is the environmental factors. So everyone is born with a rubberband personality traits which has a range to which it can be stetched but the exact stetch is decided by his upbringing for the initial 18 years. There is nothing wrong to be sensitive or anxious when there is a significant event like as you stated about your car getting struck by the truck. You rather accept it as these are normal human emotions. For further queries get in touch.

Why we get irritate in depression.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Why we get irritate in depression.
Irritabilty is seen in agitated depression. In depression self confidence and concentration at work reduces, that leads to poor outcome and frustration of unable to do things in a desired way. Secondly in depression sensitivity increases to minor criticism and little important changes in environment. As a result depressed person may sometimes get irritated easily.

What a guy can do to focus on his studies. If he is attracted by too many things.?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
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.

How to avoid imagination?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Imagination is actually very good because it precedes great inventions and discoveries. You need to, in fact, cultivate it for creative processes. However, as good as it is, it can also be a distraction when you want to concentrate? that involves discipline. Imagination is the faculty of the right brain, and logic and concentration is the faculty of the left brain. If you cultivate left brain functions, you can get disciplined and use imagination only when it is needed for a new idea. There are some left brain exercises for this purpose and I will list a few here for your benefit: shut your left nostril and breathe as often as you can, lie down on your left year when you sleep at night, do math work every day, do crossword puzzles, anagrams, sentence completion, picture completion etc. Let me know how you do. Also check if you are under stress: when people are under stress they resort to right brain thinking a lot.

Take sauna bath for 5 days. This is because it helps to release the nicotine along with the perspiration that happens during taking it. So the craving for smoking is reduced. Later, inform me after 2 weeks.

I am patients of schizophrenia give me some types to reduce symptoms I am feeling not good last few month.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, schizophrenia is a chronic brain disorder characterized by the presence and absence of particular symptoms. Positive symptoms present in schizophrenia include cognitive issues/disorganized thinking, and the experience of delusions or hallucinations. Negative symptoms include the apparent absence of emotional expression. A combination of medication, support services and therapy is the most effective way to minimize schizophrenia symptoms. 1. First and foremost talk to your doctor and take proper medication. 2. Eat a healthy diet. Studies suggest that people with schizophrenia tend to have more unhealthy diets than non-schizophrenic people. Lack of exercise and smoking are also common among people with schizophrenia. Research suggests that a diet low in saturated fat, high in polyunsaturated fatty acids, and low in sugar might be beneficial also in alleviating the symptoms of schizophrenia. 3. Quit smoking and try a gluten free diet 4. Seek psychotherapy either in lucknow or online.

I am an engineering student how to I increase my listening skills. And to increase my memory power. I need suggestion.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

I have a male child who is 12 years old. Since from the birth he is little hyper active and he is always a slow learner. He does not take interest in his study and he forgets faster. He is not interested in the study. He never forget anything what he has seen in the TV / movie. He has very little patience and gets irritated faster. Consulted a Psychologist earlier and advised for keeping him busy and doing some activities that was done in the center. Now he is getting angry also. Please advise what to do ?

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, quitting alcohol needs a bit of will power. In case you find it difficult to stop alcohol then you should decrease your alcohol intake on regular basis. On first 7 days try to take one peg less everyday than you drink in other days. On the next 7 days try to decrease another peg. Carry on this process. Homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 15 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water will help to decrease your craving for liquor. For your problems of being over-weight I would advise you to walk for one hour daily. You have to simply burn the extra calories. Now kindly pay attention to quit your addiction for smoking. Quitting smoking is far more difficult than quitting alcohol. You have to control yourself a lot to abstain yourself from smoking. Try to cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke daily. Don't try to stop it all at a once. Homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals in a cup of water effectively helps in quitting smoking.

Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, seame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

What kind of pill would be best for a severe stress, anxiety level and also help with depression?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
What kind of pill would be best for a severe stress, anxiety level and also help with depression?
To manage severe stress and anxiety, it is best to learn how to manage it by knowing yourself and your environment better so that you know who/ what can help/not help you. This is known as swot analysis and a counsellor would be able to help you with this. Also you can benefit from replacing unhealthy and negative thinking with positive and optimistic thoughts which are helpful to manage anxiety and depression. A combination of medicine, counselling, exercises, diet, life style changes and good sleep is needed to help you reduce your anxiety and depression (if you have been diagnosed earlier by a professional) otherwise I would suggest that you don't label your self with such terms as it'll affect your confidence levels. Just telling yourself that you are going through a tough time in life and are feeling disappointed will reduce the emotional burden.
