How to concentrate? because when ever I am trying to study I just go in nostalgia. Unable to focus on studies. And how to becme a determined person. Does masterbation has any effect on it ?

Dear, 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. 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.

Hello doctor, I am 24 years old currently jobless and preparing for higher education from past two yrs and I am facing mood swings from past six months which is increasing day by day. Every morning I dont feel fresh. Sometimes emotionless and sometimes restless. Even get irritated and angry very quickly. Am I suffering from depression? I dont know what to do. I' m also overweight 70kg and though tried gym yoga and medition but I cant stick to it because I dont feel motivated. Sometimes I feel like crying whole day for my current situation. Sometimes I feel happy but den few hrs later I again either become sad or emotionless. I thought of talking about this to my parents but I dont want to give them tension so was not feeling comfortable to consult them. Should I go to a phycatrist. Please help.

Dear, you don't need to consult a psychiatrist for now. You need to understand the difference between depression and disappointment. You are disappointed due to the life happenings. If you interpret, you will know, whatever happened in your life, has reasons and you are also part of it. Understanding your life and life situations help you overcome the disappointment. Then disappointment also vanishes. Don; t be overly anxious about your current situation. Everything will change for sure. Be cheerful. Change your attitude towards your life and career. Always say everything will be alright. Take care.

Hello Dr. I need to ask you that how to get rid of stress. As I take lot of stress. How do I tackle it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Hello Dr. I need to ask you that how to get rid of stress. As I take lot of stress. How do I tackle it.
First of all, the intensity of stress is in the perception. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Apart from that, all your emotions need to be dealt with by expression i.e. you need to talk about the feelings. Then you need to exercise regularly, eat fiber foods (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), sleep at least 8 hours every day, learn Yoga and meditation, learn stress management, and do a personality development course. Because you may be into studies, follow a tight schedule, with good breaks and study habits. If group study helps you, do it with the right people. If tutoring is required, arrange for the same. These should see you through successfully without the stress.

I am in depression. Always I thik about my career. I am hopeless. Points to increase.
Just like any addiction, depression is also self created. Mentally strong people comes out of addiction and depression very fast., always keep one thing in your mind always that nobody will come and feed you in this harsh but true world, not even parents, even our parents feed us to a limit but one truth is for sure that we all have to make our own way, our own destiny and the same people those neglected us once will be our well wishers when we taste success. So by going into depression will not solve your problem, but you will have to find a solution of your present condition on your own and nobody will help you or guide you, you will have to use your own brain to come out of this depression and my homoeopathic medicines will help you in this direction but I want you only to take help of these medicines for few days and once normal, leave these medicines as I do not want sartak to be medicine dependent. Most of the successful people in this world have made their own way in their own terms and conditions but you simply by saying depression seems that you are scared of this world. Do not be scared and come out of your own created web and be a man. You can do what others can do, you just need motivation and nothing else. Work hard on your goals, only then it will be yours. Sitting idle and giving the name to your scares as depression will end you nowhere but darkness. Do not just think but try to implement your thoughts and jusst think about the hardships your parents have gone through in your upbringing and do not let you parent dream shatter by even thinking of this word depression as only scared people talks about it and try to be bold and lead from the front to fulfil your parents dreams so that one dy they are proud of you one day you will surely thank me for these suggestions homoeopathic medicine alpha ts (wilmar schwabe india) drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily for 15 days. Passiflora inc q (dr reckeweg) drink 40 drops in 20 ml fresh water 15 minutes before sleep bramari pranayam daily bramari pranayam or bee breath 1. Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. 2.

First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. 4. Use your pinkies to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. 5. Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6. Repeat twenty times. Starting from 5 times drink plenty of water daily.

I want to stop drinking alcohol and I want stop smoking also please give suggestion.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must, on a war footing, exercise restraint and stop the use of all these substances. Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of alcoholism and tobacco use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by yourself because you have become addicted to alcohol and tobacco and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you do not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely drunk, and admit you by force. This will however, require the wife and family’s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions.

I am an engineering student and preparing for exam. What should I do to increase my mind and creativity.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Tobacco Cessation - How It Is Good For You?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Tobacco Cessation - How It Is Good For You?

Benefits of tobacco cessation are many. You reduce your risk for hypertension, cancer, cardio-vascular diseases and other serious chronic diseases substantially, at whatever age you quit your nicotine habit. The earlier you quit, the more you benefit. If you quit before the age of 50, you bring down your risk of dying from smoking-related diseases by 50%. But if you’ve crossed 60, suffer from heart disease and/or hyper tension, you can manage these diseases better through tobacco cessation. 

Here are a few other health benefits of stopping tobacco use: 

  1. Reduces risks of heart disease, cancer especially lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) 
  2. Cuts down risks of Impotence due to erectile dysfunction in men, and fertility problems in women 
  3. Optic neuropathy affects the optic nerve that conducts visual signals from the eyes to the brain 
  4. Cataract Macular degeneration is breakdown of the tissue at the back of the eye 
  5. Psoriasis 
  6. Gum disease
  7. Losing teeth early 
  8. Osteoporosis or spongy, thin bones 
  9. Complications in pregnancy i.e. women who smoke have more complications during pregnancy and have low-birth babies. 

Your food and drink also tastes better once you kick the tobacco habit. 

So, how can you stop smoking? Are there any medications and strategies available? The answer is a definite ‘Yes’. Tobacco cessation has been honed into an art these days. 

  1. Clinics: There are tobacco cessation clinics that help you with tobacco cessation. These are manned by psychiatrists, who can provide detailed information, encouragement, and tips to stop smoking. 
  2. Medications: You can use many medicines while you’re trying to stop smoking. This increases your chance of quitting and including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). NRT can be in the form of gums, sprays, patches, tablets, lozenges, and inhalers. NRT is even available without a prescription. Medicines called bupropion and varenicline also very useful. 
  3. Electronic cigarettes: Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are designed to look and feel like normal cigarettes. These contain a heating element that vapourises a solution and looks like smoke. Some may also contain low levels of nicotine. There is currently controversial evidence on their efficacy. 
  4. Counselling and behavioural therapy: They are both very effective too, especially if you are being guided by a cessation expert. He or she can help you with a personalised quit plan, including ways to cope with nicotine withdrawal. Apart from this, online support is also available for those who don’t have the time or money to engage in personal, face-to-face counseling. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
