How to increase concentration power, as I can not concentrate more than 2 minutes.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are probably under some form of stress. The migraine headaches indicate that as well as that there could be reasons for the stress to stem from unexpressed anger. Are you aware of any such feeling pending expression in your life when you look back to even childhood? You could discuss these matters with a counselor and see if together you can both identify the reasons for the stress. Apart from that you can do some of the following to improve memory and concentration. 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. 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.

I am a fully alcoholic patient. Now I am planning to stop this habit. Can you suggest some ideas to stop this?

Psychiatrist, Kolkata
The best idea is to fix a particular date and stop taking alcohol altogether. But before that you should consult a psychiatrist for proper evaluation, investigations and some medication to get rid of withdrawal symptoms of sudden stopage of alcohol.

Hi, am 27 years old I hve an habit of smoking from past 3 years I will take 2 cig per day, but now am willing to quit smoking as soon as possible please suggest me how can I quit smoking asap.

MBBS
Sexologist, Mumbai
The way to quit smoking is by stopping it. Respect your SELF. It's the mind that gets the stick. It's the mind that chooses to say, "No" There are medicines and methods for the poorly motivated. Choose to triumph. The sense of accomplishment in quitting raises your self respect and "determination" to a higher level. This power translates into other challenges in life where determination and heroism make world of difference. 2 cigarettes a day. It's nothing. You can do it. Just do it.

What short of things I should do to stay healthy during exams time. Getting nervous every now and then.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Avoid junk, high sugar, caffeine, alcohol etc. Eat fresh healthy food like seasonal fruits and veggies, lean meats, eggs, whole grains, nuts, pulses to fill you up. Exercise regularly and sleep on time to get enough sleep. Relax in between to take your mind off the studies. Focus on what you are good at and learn it well. Time yourself and practice staying within the word limits. There are many ways to study smart rather than putting in more effort and time. Contact me privately if you are interested.

For quick and lasting relief, we need to combine medication with psychological treatment such as cbt. Cbt is a revolutionary form of treatment the effectiveness of which has been demonstrated repeatedly in scientific studies for half a century!

Dear Lybrate User, Please consult a General Practitioner at the earliest. You need to de-tox your body first, so that the effects of marijuana wear out faster. If you wish you may consult a Doctor for De-addiction medicine for your habit of smoking. Take care.

Hlo sir,

At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

My brother age 21 yrs drinks alcohol. I wanted to ask if giving dizone is safe. I am worried about its impotency side effect.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
The most common side effect of disulfiram includes drowsiness and fatigue. Many patients experience metallic or garlic-like aftertaste, but most patients develop tolerance to this effect. In addition, disulfiram is also associated with impotence. This is most common in doses of 500 mg daily. Disulfiram can also cause blurred vision, skin discoloration, inflammation of the skin, increased heart rate, and mental changes. During the first three months of therapy, patients should have their liver function evaluated. Patients need to be monitored for the signs of jaundice, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, light stools and dark urine as these may be the signs of liver damage due to disulfiram. The signs of alcohol ingestion include flushing, headache, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. If he uses will power, he can stop using. Can help him with regular advice and follow up. Ask privately

Raising your Children with High Self Esteem

Post Graduate Diploma in Pyschology
Psychologist, Noida
Raising your Children with High Self Esteem

Building your child’s confidence and self image is an important part of raising a child. Self image can be defined as a child’s view of himself and his strengths. If a child is comfortable with his self image, he will have confidence in himself. A foundation of self confidence is key to a child’s success in his adult life. In their childhood years, a parent is the main source of building a child’s self worth or self confidence. Here are a few ways you can develop your child’s self confidence.

1. Avoid negative self talk: Children learn by watching their parents. Hearing parents berate themselves will make children do the same. Talking badly about yourself can reinforce a low self esteem. Hence avoid talking negatively about yourself and stop your child from doing it as well. If your child talks negatively about himself, give him evidence to prove the opposite or give them meaningful compliments. Also avoid calling your child names to shame him as these are likely to stay ingrained in his mind.

2. Celebrate uniqueness: Don’t make your child feel like he has to live up to the standards set by siblings or peers. Further, do not pressurize them to fulfill your dreams. Recognize your child’s strengths and celebrate his unique abilities. Help them develop their talents and set their own standards for themselves.

3. Let your child make decisions: Empower your child by allowing them to make decisions about simple things like what game to play or what to eat for dinner. Make them feel that their views are valued and thus teach them to be an active member of the family.

4. Let them work things out for themselves: Spoon feeding your child makes things easier at the time, but in the long run can have a negative effect on their self confidence. Be patient and let your child try and do things for himself. As he meets and overcomes new challenges, his confidence will grow. Give your child age appropriate chores to do around the house. This helps build responsibility and a feeling of competency.

5. Be genuine about your praise: Children are highly intuitive and can tell the difference between sincere praise and something being said merely for the sake of it. For example, if your child has made a drawing, instead of simply telling your child that he is an artist in the making be more specific and praise his choice or colours or ability of colouring within the lines.

She must be having a post traumatic phase with anxiety symptoms. Sleep is usually disturbed due to such phenomena. If this is becoming frequent or has started affecting daily routines and behaviour also then consult a psychiatrist without delay. You may consult online for further queries and assistance.

Your Hb is normal in range and no worry about it. You have not discussed the reason for your depression. Fine, if you seems irritable with talking to people, lack of concentration in work or education, not interested in watching TV or studies, feeling less appetite, not having proper sleep, feeling worthless, dull looking are all the symptom of depression. In that case, spend time with your family members, do not isolate yourself, go out for walk in the morning and in the night (if possible) at least for half an hour, but walking in the morning is necessary which relieves you from stress or depression. Though not feeling hungry, take food properly in the right time a little sum. Make yourself engaged in any activities compulsorily, or listening to music (not the song) will help you feel much better. If not resolved from the above suggestions, revert back for further discussions.
