I don't having a so much concentration in my study so what can I do for this pls tell me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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.

To begin with first just calm down and relax. Think you are the only person/mother to your child. After you calm down, have a me time, sit down and think about your life and the options available to you for making improvements in your life. Please avoid working on an impulse because you have a 4 month young child. Also begin to talk to your friends and relatives and then decide. Plenty of help is usually available, you need to explore. Once decision taken with self assessment and help of well meaning close people, make a move. If needed connect a expert relationship/marriage coach and Psychotherapist either or me or anyone nearby either online or in person, to find professional guidance and support. All the best.

Hi I am in 7 yrs relationship but now the man is changed and I am suffering from personal life carrer and from home please I have tried comitt sucide

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Suicide is no solution. Don? t ever die for another man unless you do so in an attempt to save the person. Your life is your gift to you by god: you must therefore treasure it and look after it as something very special and precious. I was not clear in your question when you say? the man is changed. Has he changed and become a bad person, or are you saying that he has left you for another? I suppose you mean the latter. I know that 7 years is a long time of knowing a person and presumably you thought that it was all sewed up and stitched. If he left because of something you did or said, you must introspect and see how serious that was, or has he chosen to make it bigger than what it is. If he was looking for a chance to get out of the relationship and found one, he is not worth the salt. Whatever the explanation, you must take it as good riddance to bad rubbish. But it is difficult and very painful, and perhaps disgraceful in front of all your friends. However, it is for this reason more so that you are saying you do not want to be in a relationship where the other person is not interested in you. You must get back to your career and get going with your life. There are three things you must do: be responsible, be respectful, and be functional, whatever happens. Get rid of all reminders of this guy and do not go to places, people and situations that you two used to frequent. And above all talk extensively about this relationship until it is exhausted from your system. But do not go around giving him bad publicity. Do talk to a confidante or counselor. At your age it must be extremely shattering but that gives you more reason to prove to yourself that you are made of better stuff than this. Love yourself enough to take this in your stride but do not go into victim mode. You will one day look back at this relationship and wonder why you were into it for so long. Believe me, it will defy all logic.

Intermittent Explosive Disorder - What You Should Know About It?

Master Of Science In Counseling & Psychotherapy

Intermittent Explosive Disorder - What You Should Know About It?

Do you or someone you know lash out in aggressive verbal and violent behavior at the slightest provocation? This could be a symptom of a behavioral disorder called Intermittent Explosive Disorder or IED. Intermittent Explosive Disorder is characterized by repeated, sudden bursts of anger which are disproportionate to the situation. These outbursts also have no discernable reason behind them. These outbursts can have a negative impact on your relationships, work and finances. If left untreated, this chronic condition can continue for years.

The exact cause for IED is unknown, but research shows that a number of environmental and biological factors play an important role in triggering such behavior. Genes may also play a role in triggering this behavior as such aggressive behavior is found to run in families. Children and teenagers are most commonly affected by this condition. Children who have been exposed to violent behavior in their early childhood years are more likely to exhibit such behavior as they grow older. There are various symptoms exhibited by the people suffering from other psychological disorders such as bipolar disorder, ADHD or antisocial personality disorder; some of the symptoms to look out for are:

  1. Bursts of anger that last 30 minutes or less
  2. Chronic irritability
  3. Racing thoughts
  4. Tightness of the chest
  5. Tremors and tingling sensation
  6. Physical aggression

People suffering from this condition often feel relief or fatigue after such an episode. However, later they are filled with feelings of guilt and embarrassment. If such episodes occur repeatedly, it is best to consult a doctor. By conducting a thorough physical and psychological examination the doctor will be able to diagnose your condition and treat you accordingly.

There is no one set course of treatment that applies to all cases of this condition. Treatment usually involves medication and psychotherapy. Medication in these cases may include antidepressants and mood stabilizers. This medication should not be stopped unless your doctor advises this. Also do not use alcohol or any mood altering drugs along with it.

When it comes to psychotherapy, the patient may benefit from individual or group therapy. It aims to identify situations that trigger such behavior and teach the patient how to manage their anger. Practicing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing and yoga can also help keep you calm. Psychotherapy also enhances the patient's ability to communicate with others and find alternate ways of getting out of a frustrating situation.

I have addicted of smoking (2-4 daily). I want to leave this? What I do for it. And also I have addicted about sex. Give suggestion please

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is a good thing that you want to get rid of smoking but it is not easy because there is a lot of conditioning associated with it and these can be spread over the whole day and night!!! When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support, if the addiction is too much. You need to identify with why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all, announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. To help process all of the above and to get support, go for counseling and persevere with it until you are completely over it. Regarding addiction to sex, you need to be more specific. Any way it is bound to have the obsession about sex a lot of the day and that will feed into the compulsion to act on it. If it is masturbation that you are addicted to it has some other ramifications and will affect your love life later. If it is addiction to sexual contact with women, then that has to be taken into consideration especially when you will need to withdraw from female company until you have resolve the issue. You will need to meet a sexologist and a counselor to work on the drive and the emotions attached to the addiction. You need to start regular exercise, eat well and sleep well. There is a need to be fruitfully occupied and when in social situations to keep your mind occupied on matters other than sex. You will need to get a sex education to understand and value and respect sex with the total five dimensions that it has: the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and even spiritual aspects. In the counseling you will need to understand women and not make them into sex objects. It is a good thing that you want to get rid of smoking but it is not easy because there is a lot of conditioning associated with it and these can be spread over the whole day and night!!! When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support, if the addiction is too much. You need to identify with why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive.

You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. To help process all of the above and to get support, go for counseling and persevere with it until you are completely over it. You will need to work on the emotions around women and see if there is any basis for childhood experiences that may be contributing to the addiction. The fixation to sex may be a substitute for love and you may be mixing the two up and replacing one for the other, and will never feel completely satiated. There could be a rigid value system, and script issue that must looked into. You will be taught the true meaning of love too.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time. Please help me.

M. sc Psychology, BHMS

I understood your problem. Loosing close inmate will defntly show impact on mind& health. I do not say that forgetting is easy, but trying or deviating from those thoughts is easy, if you practice few methods like getting engaging in your favourite hobbies, conducting or attending work shops related to your interested feilds, reading, playing, working more hrs etc. Whenever you feel like depressed, you try to deviate with the other methods, watch movie, travel, chat, work. But do not let urself alone, which will aggravate your problem & moreover in this situation, spending time lonely will show deep impact on your mental/physical status. Practice meditation, pranayama, breathing techniques which will be taught in art of living etc, spiritual lessons, will help you feeling relaxed defntly. Remember that for evry problem, time is the best healer. In homeo, try to take ignatia medicine in 1m potency weekly one dose[6-8 pills] for 1 month.

Your daughter do not love u people. I know to ask u to detach relation with her. Its no point to think about her and get illed. While she has no feeling. If u do not get enjoyment from a relation the relation does not exist. Do some benevolent work to get piece of mind. Love other people in society who requires ur help. Ur love is precious. Do not spoil it. Perhaps u failed to teach ur daughter the equation of respect and love. I blame u people. Time was out. U will get a fruit as u reap. Now come to main point. Ur relation has grown cancer. Ampute it. If diseas infiltrates into mind ( mind is a circuit of body) then this will be very difficult to cure. If ur skin get ill. Then the mind ca also be. As ur daiughter is very selfish. This is true only for sex enjoyment she has put priority. There is no other reason. So u have to wait uttill ur daughter gets trouble and the equation of love jumped out of window when proverty comes trough door. I can not teach an immatured the truth of life. Clever learns from surroundings and fool learns by getting blemishes. For ur wife. Give heper sulphur 200 1 dose just one dose(German medicine) and wait for 10 days. Then copy all these lines in private question and come to me. I promise u a cure of migrane etc permanently. Bye. Truth is always bitter.

You have to meet with a doctor who will prescribe disulfiram and if he takes even cough syrup which has a little alcohol, he can suffer some adverse reactions. So he has to be warned and he has to be sure to take the medicine.

First of all you have to understand that till now it is not a medical condition, but it can some day. You have start changing your way of thinking and behaving. 1) first you are an extremely emotionally sensitive person and most of the times, you function from the heart. If you start thinking and acting more from wisdom, you will be more peaceful. It will make you a more worldly wise person. 2) if you don't hurt people in return, that is extremely a rare quality, that means you forgive. Now since you forgive, learn to also forget. People are miserable only because either live in the past or worry about the future. Live in this moment. What is gone is gone. 3) to pursue any new relationship. It is really important, you forget the earlier or else it would spoil everything.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, your problem is not depression, but anxiety related to smoking cessation. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear, heloperidol is commonly used anti-psychotic medication. I don't know from where you got the prescription of this drug. You have to consult the psychiatrist who prescribed this medicine if you want to change it. That is healthy practice. As anti-psychotic drugs are scheduled, you may not get it with chemist unless you produce a written and signed prescription. Consult a psychiatrist. Take care.
