I want to increase my concentration power so that I can stdy better And learn easily please suggest some tips I also forget the things and its hard for me to learn the things.

M.Sc Applied Psychology, Advanced Diploma Child Guidance & Counselling
Psychologist, Delhi
Hello try to study in a place where there are minimal distractions. Organise your study table. Form a schedule for your study. Try to break your study material in smaller chunks and then try to study. Don't study for longer duration, take break in between. This will help you to concentrate and learn better. For increasing concentration you can do simple crossword puzzles. Even practicing yoga and meditation could help. Also it is important to understand the reasons for low concentration. Try to reflect about it. Sometimes when we are stressed due to difficult life circumstances we do face such issues. I hope these tips will help you.

Do you know why some people accomplish more and generally are much happier in their lives?

The field of positive psychology explains this. Research says, one of the signature strengths that such people have is" gratitude. Gratitude makes them take better care of themselves physically and mentally. It also makes people engage in more proactive and healthy way. It promotes the motivation for exercise, healthy diet and willingness to wriggle out of any negative situations in life. It helps boost your immune system. Since it makes you more optimistic and alert, you cope better with stress and feel healthier.

How to have an attitude of gratitude?

1) be mindful of what you have - being thankful for very small things actually bring a great amount of joy. Have gratitude for small things like sunlight, rain, flowers, a cup of tea, a caring spouse, a child's laughter. It gives us the resilience to cope with tougher situations.

2) keep a gratitude journal - every night before going to bed, write down" what was the best thing that happened to you that day. It fosters better sleep and a sense of well being and satisfaction.

3) reframe challenging situations - it's not the situation but our perception of the situation that makes it challenging. You can reframe your reactions and respond by saying that" I may have a very demanding boss, but I have become more organized, patient. It will help you to attend to your work and be cheerful.

4) practice saying thank you - it's very simple. When you buy a bus ticket, just smile and say'thank you. Feel the first raindrops on your face and smile in gratitude for all the life it brings.

5) focus your attention outwards - according to emmons, a us psychology professor, people who are more aware of the positives in their lives tend to focus their attention outside of themselves. They feel complete, satisfied and fulfilled in their lives and are capable of helping the less fortunate ones.

Hi, you need to analyze what happend last two month back that changed you or is it that nothing happend? monitor you thoughts whether they are negative self criticizing. How's your appetite and sleep? answer these questions to help you better. See, feeling down or blue is a natural part of life. People let us down, things go wrong, we lose people we love or the dreams we've valued. When feeling down stretches over weeks or months, is occurring frequently and interfering with your ability to interact with people and enjoy your life, it is likely that you're experiencing some form of depression. Sleep well and exercise daily. Exercise releases a natural anti-depressant chemical in your brain and gets you into doing something active. Start small with a simple walk to the local store or around the block, or to your garden gate might be the way to begin. Gradually work up to a routine that fits with your needs and enjoyment. Eat healthy. Reduce your intake of sugar, high fructose corn syrup, fast foods, and processed foods. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole foods. Drink plenty of water and do some research on foods that are said to improve your state of mind and well-being. Improving your diet can be a positive project to keep you constructively occupied and focused when you're working through your depression. Plus, many healthy foods are effective at improving mood. Improve the quality of your thought as well. All the best, do not stress you will be better.

You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were you disappointed in the near past? hair loss could also be due to stress. Have you met a skin specialist? please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

Some of the" typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper anger: there is a saying" frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression. Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. Giving up: giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. Loss of confidence: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that if we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself" it is worth it! and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. Stress: is the" wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. Depression: depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. Other reactions: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Learning to deal with frustration it is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody.

Dear doctor, my daughter 17 years old recently completed her 12th exams quite she is bright student in her class but in spite of her regular practices for her final exam she was confident for scoring 95 percentage but after completing the exams also she said she will score the expected percentage in spite of that she got only 82 percent after analyzing the papers we came to know that she has not done well she was not able to find out the reason for what happened in her exams nowadays if we say something while discussing if we call her she always often starts crying she gets irritated always in depression and mood out can I get a solution for my daughters problems and what are the rectification should be done further she should study well for her higher studies can you help me regarding this problem.

Dear doctor,
my daughter 17 years old recently completed her 12th exams quite she is bright student in her class but ...
Please talk to your daughter or show her this response. At her age she is probably going through a spurt in her male hormone, testosterone. Because of this there are three identified behaviors affected by it: she will become sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and she will have acne and pimple problems. It is not because she wants to behave like this; it is the effect of the chemical. What you need to essentially follow is this: become her friend and stop all parenting and moralizing (that time is realistically over), meet with her friends and call them over to the house, give her a lot of time, listen to her even when you don? t agree with her (you cannot tell her anything without knowing what she has to say), follow the path of least resistance, use the help of a close relative she respects, a friend, or teacher to find out about her and to even tell her to do some things you want but all this in strict confidence. During the hormonal imbalance there will be a lot of things going on in her mind and she may temporarily lose awareness. There is nothing to worry about and this state of confusion will last for exactly two years and then it will stabilize and she will feel normal and even better. Now my biggest concern is that 82% is itself phenomenal under these circumstances and must be acknowledged by all and sundry as good achievement. We push our kids for too much and then what is actually good is seen even as failure. I suspect that she is going through this misperception. You just mark my words, she is going to do extremely well if she gets out of this slump in her mood and gets back to working smart and winning ways will come her way. These disappointments are her stepping-stones to success. All great people have experienced setbacks in their path to success, and they have become great achievers because of those setbacks. She is a great kid and has to only work through this presumed failure. Later she can always show how well she did in spite of this!

Sir, it is unlikely because of medicines. It is due to your skin dryness. You can start applying Venusia Max cream twice a day for full body. Dont use soap everyday while bathing. When you want to apply soap, you can apply Zyndet bar. Please dont use scrub or loofah during bath and when you wear any wollen clothing, use a layer of cotton clothing in between

Hi doc I am 19/male. I have a problem with voice. Whenever I speak to someone over the phone or in person, people always say" can you please repeat it" I wanna know exercise/ yoga to make my voice louder and clearer.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Between me and my wife relations are too weak, she don't love me, how can I resolve this dispute.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
Expectations about love and display of the same can vary from person to person. You may consider a certain behaviour as love, your wife may act in ways that according to her could be love. If she has said she does not love you then its another matter. But if you are assuming that she does not love you, then there seems to be a communication gap between the two of you. Take some time out with only her and and explore things that she likes/dislikes. Share what you like/dislike. Talk to each other about your feelings and expectations etc. In doing so do keep respect towards each others preferences and arrive at activities you both enjoy together or do not mind doing together. Have fun and do not be too serious or judgemental. Be flexible. Increase your horizon of acceptance towards each other. Remember both of you are from different family systems with different views of everything, you can use this as a mode of self growth and in doing so both will grow as individuals and as a couple increasing your bond and understanding. If you still find difficulty in bonding then go for couple counselling and with help of the counsellor, find your life together. All the best!

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Agoraphobia treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. You are already under cbt treatment. Usually it takes 6 months to one year for a complete cure. The improvement purely depends on the efficacy of the cbt. Hope your cbt is good. Take care.
