My son is 14 years old studying In viii class. He is studying for the sake of doing it but has little interest in it. His counsellor has lessen his burden by reducing his syllabus. Though he has started scoring quiet good but he doesn't make the effort to study himself. Only noting down work from other books & copies is his effort. But he never tries to read newspaper, his academic text books etc. He doesn't feel the importance of academics. We have consulted psychologist & child counsellor. He is very good child. Does all the outdoor activities very enthusiastically. A good player good team organizer, very friendly. Very handsome. But very slow in academics. I am very worried. please advice.

Not every one is good in academics. Your son may have some other qualities. Please try to focus on his strengths. Once you understand this skills and passion then help him to pursue this. If he is a very good child, then first thing is he will be a good human being. That will be a huge achievement. Also he will do well in whatever field he choses. He might become a good Sports person, Good Manager, may be good Actor or may be he would be happy in Travel or Hospitalilty business etc. Finally what matters is, he should be happy for the rest of his life and he should be able to enjoy whatever work/job he takes up. After he passes 10th std exam, get his "Career Counselling" done so that you will be able to help him in choosing his career. Do not worry too much about academics. He is in 7th class now, may be after 2 yrs he will become more matured and serious. Guide him, show him various career options. Please have open communication with him. All the best.

Thanks for your suggestion. I am on Theo-asthalin tabs 1-0-1 and Aerocort inhaler, which contains both a long acting beta 2-agonist and a cartico steroid. Asthmatic attacks have disappeared. I have a question. I am on Valium 2 mg 1-0-1 for anxiety and Nitrosun 10 mg 0-1-0 for my afternoon distress. Of course, they have been prescribed by my psychiatrist. They belong to the same group viz Benzodiazepine. Kindly clarify, if they can be taken together out of fear of toxity.

Valium and nitrosun as rightly said are benzodiazepines usually prescribed for relieving anxiety and they do impart good sleep. There are few chances of toxicity at the dosage which you are taking but they need to taken cautiously when one is having history of asthama. There are more chances of being dependent on them if taken for long period of time as they have addictive potential. Ideally one needs to work on his anxiety by behavioural therapy and these medicines can be helpful in initial phase but should not be taken for more than 1-2 months.

I have 2 boy children. Now a days. I am forgetting everything. Last week I forgot even my sons name. What is the reason?

Dear lybrate-user, at your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Not at all sir, anxiety is not different from you. It is a part of you. And may be a result of" what is good" what is bad" kind of thinking. Please do not be overly concerned about the outcome of everything. Just go for it. Cheers.

Simply under stand that asking questions makes you confident and helps you to become a better person, if you ask without much thinking or hesitation then automatically your fear to ask, will go.

General Physician,
If you feel excessive sleep or tiredness/ head spinning or vertigo like feeling you have to make sure you have no anaemia or hypothyroidism by doing a blood CBC & TSH and inform me directly 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. Please do not worry. Motivation needs to be always self. If you try to get motivation from external sources, You may get it for the time being, but naturally it will taper down and vanish within two days. You have to cultivate consistent self motivation. You have to change your attitude so as to have consistent self motivation. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user. I must appreciate your concern about smoking and willingness to quit it. Regarding your throat and chest pain, you must get it checked by going to a local doctor, as it may be an infection or any other problem. Smoking certainly is very harmful in both short and long term and can lead to these type of symptoms. You must take professional help in order to quit it as you will have difficulty in initial few days which can be overcome with some medicines. Counseling also improves chances to quit smoking. Above all, you need to be very determined to quit it totally, otherwise you will keep relapsing back to smoking. Yes certainly, you can kick the butt for good! take care!

Internal frustrated thoughts may not explore in proper manner. If you do yoga or anything it will not helpful. First you should analyse and share your problems with friends or family members. Take further steps to overcome from stress. If it is not done by you. Then take the help of psychologist. He should analyse and suggest the proper methods to overcome from the status. So better feel always comfortable. Be relax yourself. Best of luck.

Hello lybrate-user, whenever there is stress, person may get confused, it happens. Ofcourse take out time for yourself, and meet a psychotherapist, but also try something at home, as in tryand writ down your thoughts, try and live in present- don't keep running in future, even in your mind. Just be 100% wherever you are. Your state shows that your just running, going wherever life takes you, just take a pause, look at yourself, give 5-10 minutesto yourself through meditation.

I married in 2012, was arrange. Before the wedding we were talking on the phone. Then I was think . She is a good girl and will be a good life partner. But after marriage it was not certain. As soon as I had thought it was the opposite. She not like to live with my family in it together . They all want something separate and individual and some of his childish antics have hatred in my heart for her. An act of her has always hated the feeling throughout. Which has resulted in the recent. Those that I was upset with the private job pressure. For this, I wanted to own a small business. Something for which lack of money was falling. For this I wanted to sell our gold jewelery . But she did not support me, and My dream was break to a small business. Am now unemployed because of its 6 months. That's one reason that I 'll hate my wife . And I do not like to be with her. Now I am so frustrated and depressed. I do not think there ever will be able to forget this. Some time ago, for not getting a job because I had decided to commit suicide. But I have avoided death . But I do not think I have much time venture to avoid death. So doctor tell me how to adjust in this situation. My big problem is m not want to live my life with wife because I so hate her.

Marriage is about love, understanding and adjustments. But expectations are the biggest hurdle in all these. Marriage is about what two people as a couple want to do, unfortunately in indian joint families it is what the family wants from the daughter in law, which seems to be the case in your marriage. From what you are describing it seems that you two have not developed a relationship of trust. In the absence of trust their cannot be any love. When a woman marries a man, it becomes his duty to uphold her respect in the family, by giving that respect to the woman in your life, you ensure that she will stand by you in all times. But in the absence of trust, and in a situation where the husband is not supportive, she will also decide not to support. The best for you would be to develop a relationship with your wife, try to know her likes and dislikes. It is not fair to ask her to adjust to other people's or your likes all the time. At times you will also have to let her do what she likes. Keeping a family together doesn't mean that everyone has to do, see or eat the same thing. Only those relationships and families can be happy where everyone has the freedom to what they like within some boundaries. If you keep hating her, then you can't be happy. And thinking of dying is a very childish thought- why do you want to run away from the situation, without trying. If you can't bear to live with her, then it would be better to separate rather than dying.
