Sir I'm 20 years but I could not concentrate about my studies properly, when I start studying my mind will deviate and start thinking about the past things through which I can not concentrate on my study. What can I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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 is 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 sugar and junk food.

I used to smoke daily 2 packets of cigarettes for the last 3 years but Now I want to stop smoking. Is there any side effects if I suddenly stop smoking?

Dear there are no side effects on quitting smoking. You are just smoking for three years and therefore withdrawal symptoms are also rare. You should quit now and drink a lot of water and two to glasses of fruit juices. You can do it without any trouble. Go ahead. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, in teenage to till marriage love is very common, but every individual thinks that it is only his problem it is not, some people they express some people will not, when you love you need to build family 1. To have family life we need money 2. To earn money we need to have good job to get into this cycle, most important don't spoil your career

Sir I have a stammering problem. And I m very tired from this again and again. So please sir consult me.

Dear Upendra, Welcome to lybrate. Stammering is "speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or "say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses". Stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is Vocal cord misalignment. Second is Psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ENT Specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ENT specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, You should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

I have a problem of forgotten things. How to coup up with it? Its a big deal for me. Because it affects my study.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. There aremtwo ways. First way is to completely disregard astrologers and take up driving as a profession. But, once you do that, should not worry or think about astrology or fate. Second method is to accept the astrology is c8rrect and lead a life accordingly and accept whatever job you get. Not as being compelled, but as a passion.

if your dad is not suffering from Kidney stones or gall bladder stones, than mix 1 gram lime stone (choona) in 100 gram curd and ask him to eat. lime stone is the best medicine to heal the damage done by alcohol, secondly talk to your father about the horrors of smoking, make him emotional, this is the best way. Some natural tips: The grape diet can actually help you to get rid of alcohol cravings. It is one of the most popular home remedies for quitting alcohol. In this diet, you have to eat grapes for about 25 days. You are not allowed to eat anything else. Wines are made of grapes and if you eat them, you will not crave for alcohol at all. This diet should be followed for about a month in order to leave alcohol completely. This will surely work for you! However if you feel unwell in the middle of this diet then it is advisable that you should discontinue. Dates are one of the oldest and most popular home remedy for getting rid of alcoholism. If you are not able to quit alcohol then this will help you to get rid of it instantly. Alcoholism can be easily treated with the help of dates. You can rub some dates in water and drink the solution twice or thrice in a day. This will help you to get rid of alcohol completely. This remedy has been used by many people and it worked wonders too! You would need to drink the solution for a month in order to see visible results. Alcohol addition is something that affects your body in a negative way. So, have dates as much as you can! Bitter gourd can help you get rid of alcohol and also cure your damaged kidney. alcohol damages the kidney which can also lead to death. You can have bitter gourd juice early in the morning on a daily basis in order to quit alcohol. This remedy will surely work as it has worked for other people. The taste is bitter and not great but you can mix the juice with buttermilk for better taste. Thanks Consult me if still he drinks
