How to increase thinking habit while study. How to become introvert. How to read fast.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
To read fast you need to loin a speed reading course. I think you want to be an extrovert and have mistakenly put in introvert?! With regard to developing a thinking habit while studying, you will need to let your imagination go wandering after any thought that is proposed in the material. Never accept any concepts without questioning their veracity. You must try to imagine the proposed idea in a practical situation to see if it makes any sense. Every thought has a myriad of possibilities, if you only think. Sometimes it helps to generalize and explore lateral thinking. The right brain mode is the imaginative and creative brain and if exercised well it will help spread your thinking into a wider mode.

Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Homosexuality is a result of mutation of a gene called fruuit fly. You have got to accept what you are. There is no way you can change your sexual preference, you cannot force yourself to get attracted to females. You will be inviting life-long conflict if you force anything upon yourself or try to be what you are not if you are born with this orientation, you will only be attracted physically to guys. Know that and accept it!

Hello lybrate-user, well is he suffering from hair-loss due to water, or is it a stress-related issue. Nowadays we have lot of options for hair fall. The one I know which is recommended and receives many good reviews is the neel bringadi oil (kerala manufactured) massaging hair with this oil before bed time could be a solution. However, the stress needs to released, so it can be released by either talking to someone, or logging a diary to let go of the emotional turmoil. I hope he feels better. Regards.

Dear , please understand cancer is not a disease and is not caused by any bacteria or viruses which can be killed by using some medicines or chemicals. Cancer is cell gangrene. Cell degeneration is caused because of dead cells. These dead cells affect the adjacent dead cells too. Then it spreads. Prevention is to stop smoking totally.Alternatively you may consult a psychologist near your home town. Please understand, this treatment is a must for you. Do not ignore the symptoms. Take care.

Doctor please help me out. One year earlier I was travelling in bike suddenly I felt like unconscious and I felt I will fell, anyhow I drove and reached home. I had bp problem but it was minor but that fear that I might fall some unknown place while driving my bike made me worry and slowly I stopped driving. Slowly this problem turned to fear of death and I overtime started thinking that going out, driving, might harm me. I really want to drive the bike but every time I start it the fear engulfs and that day scene comes in front of me. I just drive bike from my home to office that is 2 kms only. The moment I decide to go long drive I get tense, worried, fear increases. It feels I will die. Please help my age is 32, I want to enjoy the life again. Please doctor.

Relax. You know well that your fear is irrational. It can be overcome by graded exposure to the feared thing. I. E. I suggest you to put forth your target a little more for 10 days. I mean, drive 3 kms instead of 2 for practice. And make it 5 kms everyday for 10 more days and so on, the goal must be limited at the point where you feel fear, and you practice more and more till that point/distance. You can also take a friend with you in a separate bike, for your help until you become independent.

At the age 12, I saw a movie in which there was a clip that shown, a father was loving, cuddling his 10 years old son in a way that my brain absorbed that scene as an adult male sexually exploiting a young little boy. From that day, I feel like sexually enjoying with a young boy. However, in reality, I didn't take up any such step. But I do feel whenever I see a good innocent looking face of a young boy, my eyes stay over his face. Am I a pedo or gay ? How I can get rid of this menace? please advise.

You are neither a pedo nor a gay as far as your impulses are under control. Most of us have one or more aberrations in our thought patterns which we could not easily spit out from our mind. List out the psychological, social consequences of both the child being abused and the person who abuses him (if it is your child.). You will never even think of it again.

You could see a psychiatrist for this, there are medicines that may be able to help you. Also you can see a counselor who will be able to help you with your thoughts and feelings as I am sure the reason you arent able to quit would be impulse control.

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 the changes.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

Dear Dhritismita, Please understand, the nicotine in cigarettes is very addicting. Sudden withdrawal from it, causes headache and other withdrawal symptoms. Just making him promise will not help in stopping. But it is a good motivation for quitting. Please appreciate that he has intentions of quitting cigarettes. If he breaks the promise, do NOTt assume that that he does not love you and spoil your relationship. Understand that he needs help with withdrawal symptoms. Motivate him that he can stop it. It has to be done step by step. Usually it takes 12 weeks at least. Can not be done overnight with a promise on loved ones. Finally understand that nicotine dependence is relapsing disorder. Again you have restart to increase his motivation and appreciate his small steps one by one.

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. I can help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. The question contains the answer. To be happy, stop thinking about others. That means, in negative circumstances compare yourself with more negative incidents people suffer and in positive situations compare positives. Take care.
