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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

How Homeopathy Can Help If Your Child Is Under Stress?

International Academy of Classical Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Pune
How Homeopathy Can Help If Your Child Is Under Stress?

Is your child irritable? Not eating well or under performing at school?

Relax! Losing your mind and temper won't help. 

There are chances that your child is under stress and needs your support during this testing time. Let's gain better understanding of the problem as a mature step towards positive parenting.

Stress, either intrinsic or extrinsic, can affect your child as easily as it may affect you. There are several causes as to why your child may also be stress-laden even at such a tender age. As pre-schoolers, the major cause for stress stems from anxiety of leaving their parents and spending long hours in an external environment. As a child grows up, further causes of stress may include:

  1. Overwhelming schedule due to large number of academic and extra-curricular activities
  2. High expectations of parents and pressure to perform
  3. Lifestyle or status associated peer-pressure
  4. Conflict between parents / domestic violence / Divorce of parents
  5. Moving to new town or city
  6. Serious illness
  7. Physiological changes during puberty
  8. Worry about getting along with friends

Warning signals that your child is under stress:

  1. Aggression: Children are prone to a high number of aggressive outbursts as they are not as much in control of their emotions as adults are. They may often react with physical aggression (biting, kicking, or hitting) or verbal aggression (screaming or abusing). This can, however, be curbed in a number of ways such as setting firm and consistent limits, and avoiding instilling in them the idea of 'toughness'.
  2. Bed wetting: Though stress and anxiety may not be essential causes that lead to the advent of bedwetting in children, it often accentuates the same. You should reassure your child that you are not angry when he/she has an accident and see the doctor to rule out any other medical causes.
  3. Hyperactive behavior: When children can't handle stress, they release negative energy. Having temper tantrums, running away, or constantly being disobedient are ways to alert adults that there is a problem. Help your child burn off energy in a positive, calming way. Deep breathing exercises, listening to soothing music, stretching, or yoga help.
  4. Withdrawal: Social withdrawal and being frequently moody or irritable can often arise from high levels of stress, social fear and anxiety in children. Offer plenty of positive attention and speak to your child's teacher if you suspect he/she is having trouble with friends at school.
  5. Eating and sleeping disorders: If your child is sleeping less or sleeping more than usual, then it might be an indication that something is not right with your child. Likewise, if there is any change in eating pattern which you find abnormal, then it indicates trouble. This may often stem from stress or anxiety-related issues and hamper the proper growth and nutrient intake in a growing child.

How you can you help your child?  

There are several things you can do to help your child work through his/her problems when it comes to combating stress and anxiety. These include: 

  1. Have friendly relation with kids so that they feel free to share their problems/ feelings. Kids generally hide things out of fear. Motivate them to express and share their worries. 
  2. Try to understand the cause of the stress. Talk about their fears and apprehensions. Make them feel they are understood. 
  3. Do not force them to sleep or eat. Encourage to eat well and sleep in time.
  4. The child should be encouraged to indulge in some physical activities like walk/ jog/sports and relaxation exercises like deep breathing/meditation 
  5. Avoid burdening them with studies and co-curricula activities. Identify their abilities and interest and respect individual limitations. Don't burden them with your expectations. 
  6. There should be sufficient breaks in between studies for rejuvenation. It motivates and enhances productivity.
  7. Avoid demeaning/insulting remarks. Avoid comparisons with other kids.
  8. Avoid negative reactions like scolding/sarcasm/shouting/beating. Teach the child appropriate ways of managing emotions like open communication, sharing state of mind with peers and parents and appropriate anger management techniques.
  9. You should also talk to teachers and peers if you suspect any problem at school and find a solution through their help.
  10. Teach the child about time management. Let them know how to prioritize work according to importance and urgency of task.

Bipolar disorder, is a life long disorder with episodes occuring at varying intervals. During times of remission too, you have to take mood stabilizers, so the next episode is delayed and reduced in severity. Consult your psychiatrist and get educated. All the best.

I suffer from mood swings a lot. I feel very depressed and lonely all the time. Like as if I am abandoned by the entire world. All people hurt me a lot even though I am sweet to them. I get hurt by small things, also I have terrible anger. I feel I am not fit for this world. People only remember me when they need me for their selfish needs and then they forget me. It's hampering my studies a lot. I have also seen a psychologist but it didn't help. I would be obliged if by observing my symptoms, you diagnose my mental disorder. Please help.

Your mood swings are definitely of concern and that must be investigated. It may be caused by a serious developmental issue called Rejection. You seem to suffer from rejection from all and sundry to find it difficult to feel one with people. The solution to this is a matter of genuine self-acceptance or self-love. I am not talking about narcissism: this is a genuine love of yourself. It is not based on your appearance alone. You must work on developing yourself in five areas: the physical fitness, emotional fitness, intellectual fitness, social fitness and spiritual fitness. I would also suggest you attend a good personality development program, a speech training course (I suggest the Toastmasters Club), a conversation and elocution course, and to do a personal grooming course too. Education is very good to boost self-confidence, and together with that if you develop socialization skills, you will make it big. Meet with a counselor and ask to be trained in handling emotions, and that will just take you places. Read a lot and meet lots of people, even if you feel too conscious: in time you will get out of this backwardness very well. Do physical fitness exercises regularly. Ultimately, if you believe in God, you will know that you are so precious to Him that no one else’s opinion or acceptance is as important as His. Your life will change phenomenally! If the mood disorder is serious you can meet a doctor and determine the course of action, medically and therapeutically.

I am the student of LLB. There is one girl in my class, I like her a lot even I shared this feelings to her but she didn't respond any good reply. Now, I am confused should I try again and again or should I focus on my study. It is getting tough for me to forget her.

Hi lybrate-user. Trying with due respect is your part. To reply it or not or in positive or negative is no her part. Obviously you should not sacrifice your study. After few years she may not matter much but your study will matter whole life. So see the priority and concentrate on that.

I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

Feeling low and change in apetite is common during depression. A detailed analysis is required to understand the causes of your depression and then therapy and medication or only therapy would be helpful in overcoming depression. You can contact a psychologist near you or online consultation for further detailed assessment.

It will gives you a peaceful mind and a healthy body you can keep your self calm by breathing exercise and give yourself positive affirmations during this exercise like (I AM ENJOYING MY LIFE, I AM A HAPPY PERSON, I AM FULLY RELAXED. Try this and if you any other help you can contact us for telephonic counseling. And for phone for some days say goodbye to your phone and keep it some where and think that you have no need of this phone and you don't want to keep it with you. You can live without this phone. Try this also.
