Hi I am student of engineering college. I am 19 years old. When I start to read I am not able to concentrate on study so I am not studying well. What should I do so that I may concentrate on study please suggest.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

This could be a symptom of obsessive compulsive disorder. It cannot be treated with sleep medicines. But the easier way to treat it is with medicines (NOT sleeping pills). There is a way of treating it without medicines, in the form of behavior therapy. But this will take more time and effort from the patient's side. Please give us some more details of the symptoms so that we can help you better with a tailor made plan. Take care!

Foods to Flush nicotine out of your body

1. Water

Nicotine dehydrates the body, so drink water to rehydrate. Keeping up a good supply helps your body remove the nicotine out of your body.

2. Nettle

This herb is loaded with iron and is a useful disinfectant and great at fighting infection.


3. Vegetables

Eat celery, along with such vegetables as zucchinis, egg-plants, beans, and even cucumbers, which affect cigarette taste. Eating a lot of these vegetables can decrease nicotine dependence. Do not eat a lot of sweet vegetable, that are high in sugar, because excessive amounts of glucose activate the areas of the brain responsible for pleasure and satisfaction. Thus, glucose can stimulate cravings.

4. Pine needle tea

This tea has been traditionally used to disinfect the mouth and throat, but can also be a helpful aid in lung health.

5. Oranges

Contains high levels of vitamin C to replace vitamin C in your body that smoking reduces. Eating oranges boosts your metabolism to clear nicotine faster and reduces stress.

6. Kiwi fruit

Kiwi helps you eliminate nicotine from the body and replenish Vitamins A, C and E that smoking reduces.

7. Carrot juice

Carrot juice has vitamins A, B, C, K that help eliminate nicotine from the body. Nicotine also damages your skin, and carrot juice is high in vitamins that are good for the skin.

8. Broccoli

Contains high levels of vitamins B5 and C. Replenish vitamin C by eating broccoli and keep your metabolism high. Broccoli contains a substance that protects lungs from toxin-related damage.

9. Spinach

Rich in vitamins and folic acid, so it’s good for your body and especially good in making tobacco taste bad.

I am 22 year old male and I am Tachophobic (fear of speed) and this fear effects my normal life, So please suggest me...
This fear is called phobia. You can control this phobia. Start the bike with minimum. That will continue automatically. If you start initially high speed later it will continue like that. Practice minimum speed always for 21 days. Later it will become your attitude. Always try to go minimum speed. When ever you are driving concentrate on driving. Maintain minimum speed. Do not cross the roads with speed. Your crossing speedly later thinking about that. Anything happened to me. Relaxed driving always best. Do not confused. Better to start early time. Start practicing minimum speed. Once you go slowly it will give much satisfaction. You do not have negative thoughts also. Change your behaviour. Do not imitate others and do not think others are what thinking about to me. Practice slow driving it is always best. Ok best of luck.

I lost somebody close and some then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time. Please help.
Hi. I am sorry to hear about your loss. Losing someone causes grief reaction and this takes around 3 months to go completely. The stages of grief are. Initially there is denial for the loss that it is not possible to lose them. Second is anger towards god that why did he do this to you. Third stage of it is bargaining that god can have taken anyone one else or you instead of that person which also venish with tym. Fourth stage is depression which currently I think you r going through. And last stage is acceptance which will soon come and you will be out of it. If the stage persists for more than few months than definitely you should consult to a psychiatrist. So be cool and let the tym travel. If still you feel that you need treatment you can consult me. Thanks and tc.

Dear lybrate-user, I can see the trouble. Usually anxiety disorder comes under disorders, not disease. Mental disorder do not need any medicines for management. Any clinical psychologist should be able to provide you with psychotherapy methods to overcome your anxiety problem provided you give us every details. There must be an underlying factor for your anxiety neurosis. Take care.

It may be due to exposure to cold or he may be suffering from lower respiratory tract infection. Needs investigation to reach final diagnosis. Check for other symptoms if any. Meanwhile you may go for medicated oil massage followed by fomentation.

Dear, many people become forgetful as they become older. This is common and is often not due to dementia. There are also other disorders such as depression and an underactive thyroid that can cause memory problems. Dementia is the most serious form of memory problem. It causes a loss of mental ability, and other symptoms. Dementia can be caused by various disorders which affect parts of the brain involved with thought processes. Most cases are caused by alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, or dementia with lewy bodies. Symptoms of dementia develop gradually and typically become worse over a number of years. The most important part of treatment for dementia is good-quality support and care for the person with dementia and for their carers. In some cases, treatment with medicines may be helpful. Please consult a physician first.

By realising that even a single puff of smoking or drink of alcohol is bad not only physically but contaminates your consciousness and mindset because the ingredients in cigarette/bidi/alcohol are basically intoxicants or poisonous Even a single puff of smoking is bad not only physically but contaminates your consciousness and mindset because the ingredients in alcohol/tobacco/cigarette/bidi are basically intoxicants or poisonous. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in alcohol/drugs/smoking/tobacco. Also, remember that smoking is harmful to your body Please remember that alcohol/drugs/smoking is toxic to your body, mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit, the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of alcohol/smoking/drugs can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in alcohol/drugs/smoking In place of alcohol, spend your time by doing transcendental meditation or Bhakti yoga and Chant the names of God Who you have faith in. It has been scientifically proved that by doing Yoga and Chanting, the habit of alcohol/smoking/drugs can be stopped. By chanting with love, soon you would be swimming in an ocean of pleasure which is million times greater than flickering pleasure of intoxicants like alcohol, and automatically the attraction to the low taste of alcohol would stop.

Actually I smoke I thought to stop smoking. Properly stop. Whenever I don't smoke the cough will come.

MD-siddha, bachelor of siddha medicine and surgery
Siddha Specialist,
Hi, this is a symptom of addiction. First of all I wish you all success in your mission to stop smoking. Yes, really it's a mission. But anybody can achieve this. You first think that you can do this. Where there is a will there is a way. You don't think to leave it suddenly. You should stop step by step. You can use nicotine chewing gums initially. Then step by step reduce it. To get rid of the nicotine poisoning take plenty of water, take sesbania leaves, ginger, lemon juice to reduce nicotine poisoning.
