Hello Lybrate user As you have mentioned above regarding anxiety disorder, anxiety disorder could be due to low stress tolerance, high emotional sensitivity and high negative thoughts. These make an individual vulnerable to stressful situations. Try deep breathing exercises, maintain a thought diary and try to indulge in more positive thinking. Share your thoughts and feelings with someone close so as to have emotional support and guidance during such situations. For better management of the symptoms consult with a clinical psychologist in person for regular counselling sessions.

Hello Lybrate user For psychological issues such as depression and anxiety combination therapy is suitable i.e. Medecines along with psychotherapy sessions. It is a time consuming process and might take 6-8 months to bring about its effect depending on the severity of the symptoms. Try to keep continuing with the CBT sessions. Try to maintain a thought diary and write about your thoughts and feelings everyday. Also try deep breathing exercises and physical exercises to keep mind and body active and balanced. For any further guidance you can also reach out to me through the Lybrate app.

Easy Ways To Deal With Exam Stress!

Easy Ways To Deal With Exam Stress!

 

These easy steps can simply enhance the performance of a student and help students to deal with exam stress

 

1. Listen to Music

Listening to music can create a positive and productive environment by elevating your mood and encouraging you to study more effectively and for longer. 

2. Excercise 

Many students feel as if they should spend their entire time before exams with their books open and their pen poised for action. However, research has proven that exercising such as taking a walk can boost your memory and brain power.   

3. Plan your Study Routine

This may not be a big surprise but what is shocking is the number of students who discount the benefits of creating a personal study plan. 

4. Have good Sleep

For some people, this is something that’s always put on the long finger especially if you are trying to get the most out of college life. Most importantly, sleep helps your brain to assimilate new knowledge into your long-term memory so that you can recall it when it comes to the test day. 

5. Use Mobile Apps

There are tons of mobile apps designed to improve your quality of life. Whether you want to get better organised, improve your mental arithmetic or work on your English language skills, there’s an app for that.

6. Give Your Mind Space

Practising meditation is another way to maintain focus while improving both mental and physical health to reduce pre-exam stress.

7. Let it All Out

Sometimes you just need to talk to someone, other times you need to shout it from the rooftop or scream from the top of your lungs. Figure out what you’re feeling and then let it out.Speaking to a family member or friend can highlight the bigger picture for you and empower you to rise above the exam stress.

8. Break Free from Distractions 

We don’t realize the number of times one check Facebook, Instagram or whatever your vice is? When you add it all up together, it amounts to a significant waste of time. It can be hard to detach from your life outside of studying but keeping the end goal and time frame in mind will ease the process.

9. Some of the must do's for students are as follows:

  • Know your concentration span, Study with breaks.
  • Work out the best time for concentration 
  • Time Management plan must be made for all subjects. 
  • Choose a study place with minimum distractions and auto-suggest to yourself about your resolution. 
  • Try to coincide study time with the time, you would be giving an exam. 
  • Prioritize the workload. Give your best concentration time to the toughest subject. 
  • Repeat your learnt work so the recall in the exam is easy. Work not repeated or revised is easily forgotten.  
  • Relax with what you know before entering the exam hall.

 And above all, do not forget to wear confidence.

Hello Lybrate user The psychological issues mentioned above could arise due to low stress tolerance, high vulnerability, poor coping strategies, high emotional sensitivity, personal and professional stressors, poor emotional support system, personality deficits and many other related factors. Any individual might face stress in life which if not handled properly might lead to any of the mentioned disorders. One can try to think positive, evaluate situations and incidents in a more practical manner and not emotionally. Balancing the day with regular exercise, proper diet, sleep routine, socialising and sharing thoughts and feelings with someone and strong will power might help an individual to cope better in stressful situations. For better management and to learn coping strategies you can try consulting a clinical psychologist for counselling sessions. You can also reach out to me through the Lybrate app.

Tips To Increase Your Concentration Level!

Tips To Increase Your Concentration Level!

ADHD, CDD, short-term memory loss, forgetfulness, insomnia and so many more terminologies we would have come across very often. They all seem to have evolved from a common origin and that is concentration issues. Have you pondered on these questions!! Why can’t it be easy to concentrate? Why can’t it be easy to remember everything? If yes, then read on to know more.

Concentrate! Focus! Pay attention! These are not just words but one huge and complicated process in itself. Many children and as well as adults often develop this issue wherein they find extremely difficult to concentrate.

Science behind concentration issues: When an individual performs a single task; for example reading a book, the image of what he is seeing hits the retina. From the retina, the nerve fibres carry the image to the brain which stimulates the brain cells to fire an action potential. The signal from here moves to the thalamus and proceeds to the visual cortex. This signal activates locus coeruleus which is a brain stimulant. It targets the particular area of the brain becoming the deciding factor as to how one responds to a stimulus, which in this case is an image. When there is deregulation of the locus coeruleus, it is then that a person develops disorders like ADHD, anxiety, depression, insomnia and others.

Factors influencing concentration:
Concentration is a skill that requires you to prioritize your senses while doing any work. It is an ability to block out distractions.

  • Dedication to the task
  • Interest in the task
  • One’s ability to complete the task
  • Physical and emotional state
  • Conducive environment with few distractions.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and concentration deficit disorder (CDD)
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and concentration deficit disorder (CDD) are the two predominant concentration issues. The first one is more common among the children while the latter is observed in mostly the adults. Any individual with ADHD or CDD can show abnormalities in their behavior and social life.

ADHD individuals tend to be forgetful and face problems sticking to one task and may even display excessive fidgeting. CDD individuals tend to be lethargic, move slowly and have trouble in staying alert. Adults may become socially withdrawn and exhibit slow information processing.

Solutions for concentration issues:
Concentration issues require a lot of time to be overcome. You can try to figure out what causes the distractions and avoid them as much as possible by refocusing your mind only on what you are doing. You can give yourself timers which comprise of “distraction time” and “focus time”. This strategy helps if one’s mind is actively processing other things. You may also create subtasks by listing the things you need to do and then ruling out one by one once you accomplish them. Always breathe better and try for long inhalation and exhalation. This helps to bring down your anxiety levels which hinder the concentration.

Though the above-mentioned strategies are just to help you improve your concentration they are not the ultimate cure for any of the issues. Every individual is unique and sometimes accepting oneself can solve many complications as it reduces the need for unnecessary thinking. Always bear positive thoughts in your mind as it will act as a driving source.

Hello Lybrate user I can understand the concern you are going through. It is advisable that you try and practice meditation on a regular basis as it can help calm the mind and make you more relaxed during stressful situations. Try and engage yourself in activities which are enjoyable in nature. Go for regular walks and exercise to keep your mind active and healthy. Try and maintain a diary in which you mention three positive events that happen during the day. It is suggested that you seek help from a clinical psychologist for an in-depth case history and formulation of a treatment plan which will be beneficial.
