If you sleep less for concentration, it will defeat the very purpose. You will lose concentration and you will also feel quite unhealthy. If it is only during the exams, then you could reduce sleep. Otherwise, sleep is very essential for concentration.

Tell me if I have OCD?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist
Ask Free Question
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder that affects about 2 to 3% of the population. People with OCD experience both obsessions and compulsions.

Obsessions are unwanted and disturbing thoughts, images, or impulses that suddenly pop into the mind and cause a great deal of anxiety or distress.

Compulsions are deliberate behaviours (e.g. washing, checking, ordering) or mental acts (e.g. praying, counting, repeating phrases) that are carried out to reduce the anxiety caused by the obsessions.

What do “Obsessions” Look Like?
There are many different types of obsessions, and many people with OCD will have more than one type of obsession. Some examples of common obsessions are:

Fear of contamination
This obsession involves a fear of coming into contact with germs, getting sick, or making others sick, from touching “dirty” or “contaminated” items, sticky substances, or chemicals. For example, “I will be contaminated by germs if I pick up this pen off the floor”, or “I can be poisoned by lead if I come into contact with paint.”

Thoughts of doubt

This obsession involves constant doubt about whether you’ve done something wrong or made a mistake. For example, “Did I turn off the stove?”, “I think I made a spelling error on the email I just sent.”, “I think I threw away something important”, or “I might not have answered that question clearly and precisely enough.”‘ Did i drop something”

Fear of accidentally harming self or others:

Adults with these obsessions are afraid of harming themselves or others through carelessness. For example, “If I don’t make sure that the door is locked at night, the apartment might get broken into and I might be robbed and murdered”, “If I don’t immediately change out of my work clothes and wash them with bleach, I might bring outside germs home and cause my whole family to be sick.”

Need for symmetry/exactness:

Adults with this obsession feel a need to have objects placed in a certain order or position, or tasks or events to be completed in a set way. For example, “I need to sort all my clothes by colour and have them face the same direction. Otherwise, it just does not feel right!”; “I just scratched my right arm twice and now I need to balance it out by scratching my left arm twice.” David Beckham is said to arrange his bottles in the refrigerator in order of height.

Repugnant obsessions:

Repugnant means disgusting. These kinds of obsessions include unwanted thoughts, images, or impulses of doing something horrible to a loved one (e.g., throwing your baby off a balcony, kicking your elderly grandmother; jumping off a bridge); sexual obsessions (e.g., thoughts of touching someone sexually against his/her will, images of molesting one’s baby, doubts about one’s sexuality); and obsessions that violate religious beliefs (e.g., swearing in temple/church, images of having sex with a god). Repugnant obsessions can also take the form of doubts, for example, “Did I run over someone without realizing?”, “Did I become sexually aroused while bathing my baby?”,These kinds of obsessions are particularly unwanted and people with them would never want to act on them. Having them DOES NOT mean you are crazy, dangerous, or evil deep down inside!



What do “Compulsions” Look Like?

Some examples of common compulsions are:



Washing/cleaning compulsions:

o Washing hands excessively

o Rituals and rules for cleaning the bathroom or kitchen, washing laundry, etc.
o Grooming/teeth brushing rituals (for example, brushing your teeth in a particular order)
o Showering rituals (such as washing a specific part of the body first)

Checking compulsions:

These behaviours are performed in an attempt to stop something bad from happening. However, repeated checking often makes people feel even less sure that they have successfully prevented the bad event from happening. Some examples include:
o Checking to make sure doors are locked, stoves are turned off, electrical outlets are unplugged, etc.
o Checking to make sure everyone is okay and not harmed. For example, calling family members repeatedly to “check” if they are safe.
o Checking to make sure that you haven’t made any mistakes. For example, re-reading emails over and over to “check” for spelling/grammar mistakes or visually checking the environment to make sure that you have not left anything important behind.

Ordering/arranging compulsions:

This category of compulsion involves arranging items in specific ways, such as clothes, books, shoes, etc. For example, you might line up all the clothes in the closet so that they are arranged according to colour, with all the hangers facing in the same direction. Adults with this compulsion will sometimes arrange things until it “feels right”. Some will do it to prevent bad things from happening; for example, “If I don’t arrange all the books and magazines in the house so that they face east, then someone in my family will die.”

Mental rituals:

These are compulsions that are performed in your head. For example, you might mentally repeat a prayer whenever you have thoughts about something bad happening, or you might replace a “bad” thought (e.g., mom dying) with a “good” one (e.g., mom smiling and in good health).
Need to ask or confess.
Some adults with OCD are afraid that they have done or thought something “bad”, and therefore feel a strong urge to confess all of their thoughts to friends or family (for example, telling a loved one that “I just had a thought about pushing someone into the street”). Most people who feel the need to confess will also seek repeated reassurance that everything is okay (for example, asking a loved one, “Do you still love me even though I had a bad thought?”).

Hoarding:

Some adults with OCD have a very hard time throwing away things that seem to others useless or of limited value. Hoarding can lead to excessive clutter in the home and interfere with daily life. For example, some people are not able to throw away any receipts, financial documents, or old newspapers.



How do I know if I have OCD?

Everyone has thoughts that are upsetting or do not make a lot of sense from time to time; this is normal. Just having an unpleasant thought does not mean you have obsessions. Similarly, it is not uncommon for people to repeat certain actions, such as double-checking whether the door is locked. However, these behaviours are not always compulsions.



When is it an obsession?

1. Obsessions occur frequently, even when you try very hard not to have them. People with OCD often say that their obsessions are intrusive and out of control.

2. Obsessions are time consuming. People with OCD spend at least one hour a day thinking about their obsessions.

3. Obsessions cause a lot of anxiety or distress and interfere with life.

4. Obsessions often lead to compulsions. People who have normal unwanted thoughts will not engage in compulsive or ritualistic behaviours to “fix” or “undo” the obsession.



When is it a compulsion?

1. Compulsions are related to obsessions. For example, if you have obsessions about being contaminated by germs, you will compulsively wash your hands to reduce the fear of being contaminated by touching something “dirty”.

2. Compulsions are repetitive. They are often done repeatedly and in an excessive and very specific way (e.g., washing each finger carefully, using only hot water). If the compulsions are not performed “correctly” or are interrupted, you might need to perform the entire compulsion again. Once is never enough!

3. Compulsions are also time consuming. People with OCD often spend at least one hour a day carrying out their compulsions.

4. Compulsions are deliberate. Although people with OCD describe their obsessions as being unwanted thoughts that “pop” into their heads uninvited, compulsions are carried out deliberately, because compulsions reduce anxiety in the short-term. While obsessions cause anxiety, performing a compulsion reduces that anxiety. For example, if you have an obsession about being contaminated by germs, you will probably feel anxious. However, if you then start compulsively washing your hands, your anxiety will probably diminish.

5. Compulsions cause a lot of anxiety in the long-run. Although people with OCD perform compulsions to “deal with” their obsessions, they often find that they become “slaves” to their compulsions. That is, they need to carry out the compulsions so often that they feel that they have no control over them.



In summary, you have OCD if:

A. You spend a lot of time thinking about (or avoiding) your obsessions and/or performing your compulsions.

B. You feel quite anxious or nervous most of the time.

C. Your daily life is significantly affected by it. For example, your OCD might cause you to take hours to do a small task (e.g., writing a casual email), get in the way of spending time with your family and friends, or prevent you from meeting work deadlines or even getting out of the house

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Nervous problem or nervousness is general anxiety disorder. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

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!

I am 30, Please let me know, what are the best daily ways to improve my memory and concentration.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.
