Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Almost every yoga posture are meant with concentration. But without concentration those postures are of no use. Yoga don't teach concentration. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, these are mental issues but not much difficult or serious as you think. Anger is an emotion. Emotion comes when you are frustrated. Once extremely frustrated, you outburst. You feel guilty when it goes out of hand and you realize it later. These behavior patterns are normal and there is nothing to worry about it. You need to practice anger management techniques. Consult a psychologist. Take care.

I am having a habit of chewing pan masala with tobacco. How to get rid of this habit?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Chewing pan is really harmful especially because it is known to cause oral cancer and oral sub mucous fibrosis (SMF). Since it is an oral habit there are many substitutes that can be used to replace the oral stimulation. Of course since it is a stimulant you cannot get the same effect and that is worth the loss to give up this very addictive habit. A dense fibrous tissue is deposited in the sub mucosal layer of the soft palate and cheek, causing disabling symptoms like trismus. It contains betel nuts, tobacco, lime, catechu and permitted spices and flavors. The first four substances damage the sensitive mucosa, causing constant irritation and micro trauma to the mucosa. Chemicals present act as a toxin. The phenol in the betel nut, with its caustic burning effect, destroys the mucosa, causing oral ulcers. The betel nut also contains tannins, which act as astringents, precipitating protein and damaging the mucosa. Altogether, this substance known to be physiologically addictive. You can use replacements like nicotine chewing gum (if you want the stimulant effect, especially in the beginning) or ordinary chewing gum, hard candy and any other orally satiating substance, especially when the urge is very strong. You would have got conditioned to the habit to different times of the day and different situations. You must particularly avoid those occasions and occupy yourself with something else attractive. You should get into regular exercise, eat healthily, and get a good night’s rest every day. Visit a dentist and clean up your teeth and gums to wipe out all the reminders and damages of the habit. You may also get a thorough oral check up and treatment for any damages incurred.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Concentration purely depends on interest, dedication and devotion. First you have to change your attitude so as to cultivate the above three. Nuts and fruits are good for memory. Proper sleep and rest are essential for concentration. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person or audio/video. Please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

Dear, quitting tobacco is no child's play and it takes time and courage. Best method is to completely quit today (now) and sustain with the help of your mind power. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I think one or two online counseling sessions and these therapies should help you.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Moreover these pills have numerous side effects. Counseling will help you to learn tips and techniques to manage and cope with stressful situations. It is how we perceive a situation which makes us feel stress and tension. Counselling will help you to modify your perception and look for workable solutions. Please add daily exercise, yoga, meditation and healthy food to your daily routine.

I have relationship problems. Actually my boyfriend want to separate from me. But due attachment and love I can't do this. I tried all the things to sort out this. But it doesn't work. From the very beginning my boyfriend loved me a lot till 1 year. But today he consider me a tension only. Due to this he insults me a lot. I had talked to him regarding this problem he said that I didn't know before that you are this type of girl. I said why you always insults me then he replies" you also did the same to me" If I question him again and again he start says that you always fights I don't want to talk to you. Then my self respect also get hurts. I miss my boyfriend's care and love which he had given me before. What should I do?

You should never want to be in a relationship where you are not wanted, period. Whatever the history of this relationship, if he says he wants a separation, then go for it. It may make you very uncomfortable in the beginning but you will get over it in time. I do not if there is any truth in his accusation that you fight too much and you insult him too. If it has any truth to it, you will need to look into that and work with a relationship counselor to change that. Usually, when a relationship has ben through a long duration, the real nature of the individual shows up over time. Now, that nature may not be very good too. Please do not pursue a relationship by force: why would you want to continue this friendship, if he ios not interested. This is predictably going to ruin both your lives. Just accept this reality and after the initial difficulties, you will overcome. Yes, you need to do all this to preserve your self-respect.

Feeling lonely and disinterested in surroundings and having a feeling of worthlessness are signs of depression. Depression like any another illness is treatable with medicines and counselling. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist.
