I am 22 years old I have problem, my mind and body is not concentrating in one thing. So what should I do to improve concentration and reason for this symptom?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Stress could be the reason for whi9chy you could meet with a counselor. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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. 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.

My friend aged 20 could not concentrate on studies. As he is attracted towards sexual content. What must he do to control those sexual feelings?

Dear , your friend must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your friend's problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your friends problem

Hi, my daughter is 7 years old, she is having problem in pronouncing "sh" sound word like she says cash as cas or show as sow. She pronounce sh as s. Please suggest any medication or exercise to clear her voice.

Dear Lybrate user. Practice makes things perfect. Pronunciation is typical in the case of young children. Every child should not be measured with the same measurement. Let the child take her time to learn the pronunciation. You may approach any speech therapist in the meantime if it is required. Take care.

Smokers are everyone not effected to cancer. It depends person to person. Because of smoking cancer comes that is healthy advice. It not means everyone affected. So do not worry about this. Better to quit smoking. You have pathophobia means fear of diseases. When you need smoking at that time take chicklets or any other chocolates or eat anything. Refresh your mind with tea, coffee or juice or any other small item of foods. Be sociable and be friendly with others. Do not think about cancer. If you think you are in very trouble. Quit smoking. Feel always I have no bad habits. I am very healthy person. Feel and think in a positive manner. It will be always best for your health. Ok best of luck.

It sounds like there is more to this than has been identified so far. Please seek a second opinion from another psychiatrist and she must go for counseling too along with the medication. It is the combination of these two therapies that she can get the best results. She will need to take her parents along to identify any childhood influences and for genetic factors too. She will need a lot of your support and careful monitoring to really help her through this.

Smoking Kills

BDS
Dentist, Sagar
Tobacco users are likely to die 15 years earlier than their peers.

Tobacco contains nicotine, the more you use it, the more your body craves for it. Tobacco use can cause cancer of head and neck, lungs, leukemia, stomach, kidney, pancreas etc. It is a major causative agent for gum diseases.
So honour your life given by god almighty, value your life and quit tobacco use in any form.

Within hours of quitting
1) B. P. Drops
2) Oxygen levels return to normal

Within days of quitting
1) Sleep improves
2) Breathing becomes easier.

Be wise, choose life, not tobacco. It is never too late!

Anxiety is apprehension of something unpleasant to come in future. The symtoms of anxiety are many and one of them may be inability to think. But this symtom may be also found in mild depressive disorder in which the person may also feel depressed. Low. Gloomy and may have pesssimistic thoughts. It is wiser to consultant a practicing psychiatrist or clinical psychologist to determine diagnosis. A mild depression may require cognitive behaviour therapy only but if not amenable antidepressants may be required.

If you are noticing a general lack of interest in things, people, and work around you then you are likely to be going through some sort of psychological stress or a difficult situation which you may not be conscious about. Reflect upon how the environment around you is like, how you are feeling about it, is your body also showing signs of lethargy, what has changed in these 6 months, how was it like 6 months before. Etc. If you can see what's bothering you then you can also work on helping yourself. If the issue persists then consult a counsellor for one to one counselling. Take care.

Hello Doctor, My father has two elder brothers who live in a nearby town with their respective spouses. All of them are senior citizens who have mostly been unhealthy for the last two decades. They regularly consult doctors but the real problem is inactivity and depression. Now, my father has gone to their place to spend some time with them. Apart from taking them to a doctor, what else can my father do to make them happy and healthy? Also, they have frequent tiffs amongst themselves on trivial issues and they call on my father, who is the youngest of all brothers to solve their issues. My father tries to be neutral while suggesting solutions and they follow his suggestions too, but still, somehow they go back to their depressed, anxious about life, health-and-relationships state. Please suggest.

If they are not receptive or cooperative, then they are suffering and probably getting some gratification from it. Your dad has to follow a technbique of detached attachment: that is, he need not take it to heart if they do not follow his advice and clearly says that to them and functions seriously like that. In time, they will get teh message and either will stop playing games or will take him seriously enough and obey his advice. They are older and so they may be more senile if the age difference is too much. Your dad should not take anything to heart and just be there to continue giving them advice but not worried if they follow it or not.

I am 22+ F. I go through a lot of emotional breakdowns. Moods swings are too frequent. I feel unsecured and down too much even though I try too much. I know a thing is bad but still, I repeat it again. I get panic attacks after a week or month which makes me mad. I cry and start to act weird. A friend suggested me I'm going through General Personality disorder. How to really know if I am going through it? Cz I go through suicidal tendencies and tried twice but don’t have so much guts.

The symptoms you are suffering from indicate the possibility of you suffering from some psychological disturbance or some underlying psychiatric condition. You need immediate help as the symptoms are hampering your normal day to day functioning, & the suicidal thoughts may be life threatening. Get yourself evaluated by a Psychiatrist at the earliest. The doctor will assess you, do your detailed mental status evaluation & physical examination, & make the diagnosis of what condition you are actually suffering from. Then he will advice you counseling sessions or prescribe you medicines accordingly. Stay positive. Treatment will definitely help you come out of your present situation.
