Hi Sir, Please help me how to concentrate on everything I see and how to stay calm and cool? Please advise.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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 lybrate user. I can understand. Feeling weightlessness is due to anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Are Some Fantasies Better Kept A Fantasy?

My husband wants me to have an affair and has fantasized about it for the last 5 of our 10 years together. He gets turned on at the mere thought of me having sex with someone else. And, this fantasy doesn’t go away.

We had some serious problems a couple of years ago and I was unfaithful once. I told him and he went from hurt, to jealous, to turned on and asks me to talk about it now during sex. The fantasy arouses me too, but I’m mainly aroused by his arousal. Is this type of fantasy better kept a fantasy? I would never be turned on at the thought of him with another woman. Thanks for your advice.


Oh, Sugar, Sugar.

Sounds to me like you just got the world’s best (and rarest) hall pass:
Men Who Want Their Wives to Fuck Other Men.

This is also known as cuckolding, and I’m not quite sure I’m the go-to guy on the subject. In our household, we joke that one day (maybe on my 50th birthday), I’ll get my threesome with another woman. There are no equivalent jokes about watching my wife with another man.

They’re fantasies. They don’t have to be acted out in real life if it would cause real life harm to the relationship.
But here’s the thing with fantasies…

They’re fantasies. They don’t have to be acted out in real life if it would cause real life harm to the relationship. Which is why it’s harmless for me to joke about a threesome; I would never bring someone home from Craigslist and ruin my marriage because of it. And it’s why your husband is still pressing for the idea of seeing you with another man. In fantasy form, it’s harmless. In reality, well…

…you’re kinda like me – a sexual hypocrite. It’s cool if you’re with someone else; you just don’t want to imagine him with another woman.

Thankfully, he’s not asking you to imagine that. He’s asking if you’re open to being with another man with his permission. And from what you’re saying above, it sounds like you are.

You wonder if this is okay because it’s not the other guy that excites you, it’s being aroused at his arousal. Well, who cares? Arousal is arousal. Being aroused at someone else’s reaction is why men have responded to women’s fake orgasms since the beginning of time. So, on the surface, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with him taking pleasure in you taking pleasure out of another man.

Where things may go awry is when unexpected emotions arise.

Will your husband truly be cool watching you have sex with another man? Hearing about it afterwards? Sleeping in the same bed where the deed was done? It may sound great in theory; who knows what he’ll feel like after the fact. One may be able to intellectually separate sex and love, but jealousy isn’t a rational emotion.

Being aroused at someone else’s reaction is why men have responded to women’s fake orgasms since the beginning of time.
Similarly, how will you feel about unleashing the dragon of polyamory? Maybe this is a one-time deal. Maybe your husband will want to see you with more and more men. Maybe you’ll get emotionally bonded to one of these new men. Maybe this one experience will irrevocably change the way you view sex and marriage. That’s a lot of maybes on which to risk a marriage.

Strangely, the good thing that you have going for you is a ten-year relationship that has already overcome infidelity. This means you should be able to address most of these concerns beforehand, and deal with any surprising emotional issues that come up afterwards.

So am I giving you the green-light to have sex with another man even though you’re married?

Yes, but I wouldn’t be if I didn’t think that your relationship couldn’t survive it. You have to accept your husband at his word that this will be a turn-on, and if this arrangement doesn’t work for both of you, you must return to the way things were before – with Pandora firmly back in the box.

Let us know how it goes.

I do not talk at all with people, Its been 2 years I have moved to new place and have no local contacts at all.

You claim to have been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, which can be quite a debilitating disease. You need to go for counseling and medication to get some benefits. Withdrawing to this extent will only get you more internal and dysfunctional over time. It is good you work but you must also socialize and meet other people and interact with them productively. The counseling gives you an avenue to work with your emotional issues and you will develop skills in coping with the everyday challenges that life throws at you. I hope your visits to the psychiatrist were regular and the medication has been frequently reviewed during these years. You need to be occupied, and fit into a routine of interesting activities every day. Yoga and meditation are also necessary to train your brain to be disciplined. Exercise always plays a stabilizing role and is the most holistic medicine besides. Since the paranoid mind is regularly perturbed by unreal fears, a reality check through counseling will help you discern fact from fiction. Your socializing and maintaining steady relations is the hallmark of a good recovery program. If I am to assume that there were no relapses during this period, then that is a good sign too. This means that your condition has remained stable all of these years! Now go to the next level along with therapy and you can look forward to a more functional and productive lifestyle.

Jatamansi-A brilliant herb for mental disorders

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Jatamansi-A brilliant herb for mental disorders

Famous in Ayurveda as a herb to combat the effects of day-to-day stress, Jatamansi has the property of enhancing the body's innate ability to sleep well. It is considered a divine plant in Ayurveda and has traditionally been used as an air purifier. The Charaka Samhita recommends it highly for insomnia, mental instability and to enhance memory. It is said to promote growth and maintain the color of hair. It is said to be especially useful in calming the aggressive conduct of hyperactive and otherwise disturbed children. True Spikenard, the Biblical Spikenard, a strong sedative related to Valerian, can relax mental over-stimulation, promote healthy sleep and calm the overly active mind, and its roots are a well know tranquilizer, an infusion of the root often being given in hysteria, heart palpitations, menopause, and various nervous diseases.

In terms of Jatamansi's energetics, its medicinally useful rhizome (root) and the root's oil are bitter, astringent and sweet in taste, with a cooling virya and a pungent vipaka. Its doshic signature is KPV.

Jatamansi enters into the rakta and majja dhatus and the rasavaha and raktavaha, anavaha, majjavaha, pranavaha and shukravaha srotam, and counteracts the effects of stress, having both antispasmodic and generally calmative actions.

Among its many indications it has been found useful in the treatment of digestive diseases generally, flatulence, hypercholesterolemia, heart palpitations, the effects of nervous and emotional upset, hypochondria (somatizing disorder), jaundice, kidney stones, respiratory diseases generally, skin conditions generally, typhoid, seminal debility, spasmodic hysterical states, epilepsy, convulsions, tension headache, insomnia, ADHD, febrile delirium, delirium tremens and senile dementia. Jatamansi's pharmacologic activities include those of an analgesic, both a stimulant and a sedative (a surprising combination of seemingly contradictory properties, quite like ashwagandha with which it is often found in formulation), antiarrhythmic, hypotensive, calmative, tonic, antispasmodic, diaphoretic, an alternative for syphilitic, cutaneous and rheumatic cases, a promoter of hair growth, and an antioxidant.

Its use is contraindicated in pregnancy, and daily dosage varies from 3 to 5 grams daily of the churna.

Hello, I can understand your pain at losing one very important person in life. You probably had hopes of spending long time with her and had plans for the future and now nothing is going to happen. All these thoughts might be causing you sadness, disappointment and some anxiety and anger on the other hand. While it's important to be an important part of someone else's life, yet it's also important to know when to call it off if it's not working anymore. 1. At the age when you broke up it is common for boys and girls to get attracted to each other and spent some time together. But equally common is breakups when one or both see that their needs are too different now and the other person will not fit the requirements any more. While this process is very heart breaking, but it is also important so that you can meet different people and see who is your kind of person and who will help you in the next phase of life ie. Job, marriage children. 2. By going through different relationships you will also understand yourself better and what do you want from a potential partner and discover many hidden qualities and weaknesses in yourself. It's your growing edge to work through your weaknesses and sharpen your qualities. You will also discover your passion, dreams and hobbies and interests. 3. I suggest that you look at this breakup as a learning lesson and an opportunity to improve on any thing that was your mistake and assess your life choices again. What was meant to go will go. Let it go and you carry on with your journey. You are 29 years old and some years later you might start feeling too old to get married and setle. You might feel more lonely than you are feeling already. This leaves a bitter memory of the past and chances are that you will regret staying single for so long. 4. Being flexible and independant in relationships is important. There will be times when you might not have any body's support or company. That is the time to learn to be your own friend and give yourself that love, importance and value which you want from a close friend. This is healthy self love and very important for self confidence and high self esteem. Whether you are in love or not, valuing yourself at all points is a very important aspect of high self esteem and self confidence. 5. Indulge yourself with meeting new people, going places, discovering your passion, hobbies etc. Spend time alone with yourself to nurture the person within you. If you can not do these on your own, then please see a counsellor and take their help to help you get direction back in life.

I just need to find the right girl and marry. Still I am looking for the right one but not yet to find. The girls whom I contacted and approached have their own unresolved stories .Even though I didn't expect the perfect match but still I need someone which I can even compromise with her flaws. The other thing is I feel depressed whenever people's reaptedly asked me to Marry. Of course I am 32 now which I desperately need to marry. But am still trying to get the good one. Previously I was in relation ship for about two years but failed which I strongly believe that I didn't contribute that much for the break up. So whenever I sit alone I feel bad about the previous one and get offended .but no matter what I am struggling to get some one and forget all the past. So what do you advise me? Thank you very much.

Hi lybrate-user, I can very well understand your situation. It must be a tough one and you must be feeling quite helpless over time. Firstly, forget about what's gone its good that you did not fall apart and trying to get your life back on track. Kudos to you for that. Secondly, there is no age for love or marriage. Marry when you are Ready and 100% sure about your life and the partner you are planning to marry with. Let people say its your life so do not make decisions in haste until your heart permits because its you who will have to deal with the consequences. Do not lose heart and keep looking for more alliances and I am sure someone will click sooner or late but yes do not give up and compromise with the situation when you know you deserve much. Do not stress out things take its own course. You can consult with me for counseling therapy and guidance. All the very best.

Hii Lybrate-userthanks for sharing your problem. If its possible ,share your problem with your parents and then that they can break the communication barrier between you and your husband. And when still problem continues then you must focus on yourself. There are many shades in life and ups and downs are its part but I think we should live in present and live every second of life and make some goal for future. Make any good friend and share everything it will help you lot, try for job as it will make you busy and you will interact with people there make your routine such that you don't get free time to think, I understand this is really tough time for you but you cannot run away from the situation you have to face it .just think only about yourself do whatever you want to do.

Hello All, Greetings, Here is my problem. Am over possessive on my friends. This is my character. Till my PG Studies i was in boys school and boys college. So there is no interaction with Girls. When i entered into a IT Company, The company is a small one. The Boys and Girls are taking very closely. Every girl has a close friend as boy and the girls are depending the boys. That makes me feels lonely. From that onwards i started to talking a girl. Finally she was very close to me and am also very close to her. Whatever it is she never forgot to call me. In that time her roomate loves a boy. Whenever her roommate going for outing with my friend only. I hate that and fight with her. She knows am loving her and she also loved me. In recent days my office boys 2 members talking to her. That makes more angry and argued with her daily. Finally she complaints me in the company and lost my job. Still am loving her deeply. I want her in my life. What can i do? How can i reduce my anger

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You blew up a very good relationship due to your possessiveness and jealousy. When you are in love with someone, you do not own them, or their time, or their relations, or their thoughts. These are all signs that you are very insecure. Now, no girl will want to be in such a relationship. You angered her to such an extent that she complained against you and you lost your job. That only means that you crossed boundaries of decency. I also think that you have lost her forever. Before you get into another relationship, I advise you to meet with a counselor and deal with your insecurities and then when you have sorted that out, you will know how to respect the other person?s freedom and independence. Otherwise, you will be prone to repeat your mistakes. Your insecurity is based on fear, and your anger is an escalation over that fear ?o You may not like this advice and may believe that that girl still loves you and that you can approach her again. That will be a mistaken notion that may only hurt you more and make you very disheartened. Let go. If you love somebody, you must let them go and if they are meant for you, they will return ? this is an old adage that still holds true today. Believe me.

Different Types of Mental Health Problems

Different Types of Mental Health Problems

Having a mental problem can be very frightening and distressing. Person suffering from any kind of mental disorder may have a feeling that they are losing their mind, causing fear and sense of isolation. It is important to know that having a mental issue doesn't mean that you are going mad. There are various disorders and problems, which may arise relating to mental health. These problems can change the way you think and behave. Therefore, it is important to know what kind of disorder you are suffering from and what could be the reason behind it. The disorders are of different types and have different effects and symptoms.

Here are the different types of mental health problems:

  1. Anxiety disorders: People suffering from anxiety disorders are fearful while responding to certain objects and scenarios. Physical signs of panic and anxiety are present as well, which may include rapid sweating and rapid heartbeat. Treatment is required when a person cannot control his response and when his response is inappropriate. Anxiety disorder involves a general anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and phobia.
  2. Mood disorders: These kinds of disorders are also known as affective disorders and the patients feel persistent feelings of depression and several periods of intense joy in a fluctuating manner. Depression, bipolar disorder and cyclothymic disorder are some common types of mood disorders.
  3. Psychotic disorders: In this kind of disorder, a patient experiences distorted awareness and thinking. Hallucinations or perceptions of unreal images or sounds and delusions are common symptoms of psychotic disorders. The most common psychotic disorder is schizophrenia.
  4. Eating disorders: Eating disorder incorporates extreme emotions, attitudes and abnormal behavior regarding food and weight. Common eating disorders include bulimia, anorexia nervosa and binge eating.
  5. Impulse control disorders: People with this kind of disorder usually work upon their impulse in an extreme way and cannot resist their impulse to carry out tasks, which may cause harm to them or to others. They include pyromania, kleptomania and compulsive gambling. Such people are likely to get addicted to drugs and alcohol and become deeply engrossed in these practices.
  6. Personality disorders: People affected by personality disorders possess extreme, inflexible traits in their personality, which cause distress to them and may cause problems in work, school and in social relationships. A person's thinking patterns and behavior change significantly from what is accepted by the society. Examples of personality disorders are antisocial personality disorder, paranoia and obsessive compulsive personality disorder.
  7. Obsessive compulsive disorder: People suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder or OCD suffer from constant fearful thoughts, which may affect the smooth functioning of everyday life. The patient gets obsessed with thoughts and performs some rituals, which are called compulsions.
  8. Post-traumatic stress disorder: Post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD is a condition, which develops after a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic event and cannot get over the thoughts of that event. Long lasting fearful thoughts are experienced in the event and the patient may become numb emotionally.

There are many forms of mental health problems and mental illnesses. They all have different effects on the mind and some are quite serious. Effective treatment should be taken in case of mental-health problems.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress. Exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. But first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc.

Drinking water is a very good thing, if you have been doing this for more than two months, there must have been some improvement with your glow. But, you cannot expect your skin to glow any further just by drinking water. There are certain foods that improve your skin from inside or you can simply start with tablet nutraskin (natural skin therapy) to make your skin glow. If you do not like to apply face packs, make sure you cleanse and moisturise your skin daily.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Alcohol is poison. Alcohol can cause various liver disease and psychological problems. You need to quit alcohol. The best method is to use your will power. You can also use deaddiction therapy. I suggest online deaddiction therapy. Take care.
