Respected sir, how to concentrate more time for studies?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
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.

I lost my wife six months back. I am retired and 61 years .Both my children are now married and settled in Delhi and Banglore. I am residing at Dehradun and feel depressed.

Losing your spouse at this age in not easy. The reason for your depression could be loneliness, missing her, insecurity about your future, cold weather, disinterest in daily routine. Try to get back to a normal routine, having a social life, cultivating a hobby, meeting relations and friends etc. Go out in the sun, start exercising on a daily basis. All this may not be possible on your own as motivation levels may be very low right now. Please see a psychiatrist/psychologist/homeopath/vaidya for medical advice and emotional support.

My mind is not relax when I do coding. Always upset and feeling so depressed .why happen to me pls give or answer me.
Coding can be quite boring for a lot of people. It is the money that helps to keep them occupied in the IT industry. However, it may not be all of the reason and you should explore the possibility of depression being there for other events. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I am 19 years old I am going through a traumatic situation in my life which was completely unexpected it was about my career I have been not succeeded in a very important exam in my life not because I was not well prepared for it but because I just did a very silly mistake in the examination hall & I just lost my dream forever.

Definitely I am going to help you. Failing in one exam does not mean failing in life. Your destiny is to do something better in life, that is why you have been kept reserved for that role. Although it was your dream, but any person must have a second way. There are many other options which are awaiting for you to embrace my child. Take the support of your family members and well wishers and make your mind to move ahead in life. All the best. I also had a dream of becoming a painter, but I could not, but still wherever I am I am try to give my best to society and mankind. You also think in that way.

Dear, socially accepted sexual practices and socially unaccepted sexual practices exist in the same society. Your case socially unaccepted. That never means you are doing something wrong. There are many areas where we do not do or restrict our self from doing something which is socially unacceptable. In this case too, you have to restrict yourself. Please do not be anxious about it, but you should restrict. Take care.

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.

You can go for a hypnotherapy session. It is mighty effective. Or else do this n. L. P exercise at home imagine you are sitting alone in a theater. Watching movie of your flying on the white screen once you've got your cinema pictured, imagine your" scary short film" up on the screen take the film and see it on the screen. Picture it. But let's make it black and white. And now make it blurry, so you can still see what's going on, but make less defined. Make it smaller. You still will be able to see it, but it needs to be smaller, so it doesn't take up very much of the screen. Finally, the film itself will be silent, with some loud comedy music playing or cartoon music. Now on top of everything put a image of yourself confident, as you are in doing your kind of work feel confident and laugh over it. Repeat it for 3 times. Continue until you get over with fear.

Obviously you are very depressed to contemplate death. In fact I think that you have an anger related depression and it may have its roots somewhere in early childhood. You must talk to your parents to find out if there was anything that happened in your infancy, including the prenatal stage, which may have contributed to this depression. You may visit a counselor along with your parents and discuss the depression and follow a treatment plan, immediately. That person will certainly want you to consult a psychiatrist to introduce you to medication. I think that this is an urgent thing to do. It is very important to maintain working with the counselor for a long term, which is essential to your recovery. In the meantime, do as much as is permissible of the following: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins, nuts, fruits, and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. The counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success.

Hello sir there is no other way to quit smoking I can not go through this kind of meditation coz I dint understand this mantra meditation.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

Sir my weight is not good. please give me suggestion what I should do. I am also a smoker.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Sir my weight is not good. please give me suggestion what I should do. I am also a smoker.
Hye, Thanks for the query. Gaining weight requires you to eat more calories than you burn. Although fried or sugary foods are calorie dense, eating them exclusively won’t provide enough nutrition to keep you energetic and healthy. Eating several meals and snacks throughout the day and including nutritious, calorie-dense food will help you gain weight healthfully. Weight gain depends primarily on your genetics, age, weight and activity level. To gain weight, you need to eat more calories than you burn. If you’re not used to eating large quantities of food at one time, you may find it difficult to fit all of your calories into three meals per day. Eating nutritious, calorie-dense foods every two to three hours will help you get your calories in without making you overly full and sluggish. If you tend to forget to eat or are always on the go, bring calorie-dense snacks such as eggs, mixed nuts, fruits and dairy. Nutritious, calorie-dense foods provide essential vitamins and minerals, which promote good health and energy. Adding ghee and cream to foods adds additional calories for very little extra physical bulk. Fruit juice, masala milk provides crucial nutrients. Meal-replacement shakes and protein powder sound like good options but also remember that unless your diet is not planned sadly they won't help. Smoking will reduce chances of gaining weight. Quit smoking gradually.

How do i help my mother come out of depression ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
First of all take her to a psychiatrist. If you know what is troubling her, talk to her or take her to a counselor. She needs motivation to come from you initially, so become her lifeline for sometime only. As she develops her skills to cope she will not need that much of support. Take her out for various activities, conferences, seminars, workshops, spiritual meets, visiting friends and relatives. Keep her occupied but not busy. Wake her up early and take her for a fast walk every day. Do not let her sleep or lie down during the day. Make sure her diet is healthy and well balanced. If she is left alone, she will internalize her problems and worsen the depression. I do not know how many members are there in the family, but they could take turns to be with her. Do not overdo anything which might encourage some fragility in her or induce fear about her condition. It is serious but not impossible. She just needs a little help due to her condition and perhaps a lot of lethargy. Make her do normal chores in the house, and if you have a garden, nothing like some work there. Take her to a spiritual guide. If she is into menopause, let her discuss that with her gynecologist for some medication.
