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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Uncontrollable and recurring thoughts are due to obsessive compulsive disorder, and hallucinations can be due to schizophrenia. You must consult a psychiatrist at the earliest to identify, diagnose and treat the real issue. Later you will have to be under counselling.

You are depressed due to a reason -jobless/ home and your partner issues. You need to take counselling to learn coping skills. CBT is also helpful

I have quite short tempered. I get angry over little little things. And then keep thinking about that matter. I get distracted very easily. I have a constant fear of losing my loved ones. How can I stay calm and optimistic? I want to focus in my studies as I am into BDS profession.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

At your age this is not surprising. One is that your hormones are playing havoc, and two there may be some childhood issues that were not resolved and are coming up now seeking a resolution! For the latter, you need to check with your parents about that, and for the former you will need to tide this period over because it lasts for exactly two years. If you are blessed with a good value system, you will be able to come out of this unscathed. Even so, you can reach out to a counselor and sort out both possibilities and come good. I would also like you to be honest with yourself and see if you are getting angry because you are actually scared. Anger can easily cover fear and nobody will be any the wiser. But the sad part is that the fear does not get dealt with and people and you will be focused on the wrong feeling. Look at that too in your therapy. If you exercise vigorously, a lot of your anger will be dissipated. The fear of losing people may have its roots somewhere in childhood and my be quite unfounded for today. Sort this out with a counselor too and this stress may be affecting your concentration and memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine.

Coping With Failure

MBA (HR), D.Sc, MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, M.Sc - Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Pune
Coping With Failure

Coping with failure

1. Expect mistakes and knocks as they’re a normal part of life. The chances are you’re not any worse than other people!

2. Remind yourself that, on the whole, you are good enough. You may not be perfect – but at least you’re trying. It take courage to step out, and to get up when you fall down. Just being willing to do that is a true mark of success.

3. Don’t over-react. It is better to stay calm, to maintain your composure and choose how you’ll respond. A knee jerk reaction often leads to real regret.

4. Try not to think or worry about how others see you. Don’t let other people determine your self-worth.

5. Put a positive slant on a bad experience. What can you learn from this that moves you closer to success? what can you laugh about with friends; what can you see as humorous?

6. Fix your focus on your goals, then look ahead and keep on going. Don’t let a setbacks deflect you from your purpose and your dreams.

May be there are too many things on your mind, all the time. Try the following to improve your memory: 1. Every day in the morning before you start your day, sit at one place and practice slow, deep breathing for 5 minutes. If you are feeling very anxious, inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth and imagine you are exhaling all the anxiety, in you. 2. Write down all the important jobs to be done. Decide priority and start doing these jobs. After finishing put a tick mark. Keep referring to this list of jobs if you are forgetting all the time. 3. Take interest in all the work that you do. We easily tend to forget those things which are not of our interest. 4. Understand why finishing a particular job is important for you because if you find it worthless, you are more likely to forget it. 5. Play some memory games when you are free. 6. Be aware of your own feelings. If you are under lot of stress, you are likely to forget things easily. Learn to manage your stress. 7. Have enough sleep daily. 8. At night, make list of things to be done on the next day and read this list next day in the morning. All the best.

What's the best way to quit smoking. My Friend didn't want to quit it at first place as she loves to smoke. Now I have persuaded her to quit it. Please help what should I do to make her quit smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have done a wonderful job convincing her to give up smoking so easily. But now is the tough task. Any way, she cannot stop easily, if she herself does not want to. It must ideally come from her own desire to stop. You can force her to stop by admitting her in a rehabilitation center, if they also do not allow smoking (unfortunately many centers dole out daily quota of cigarettes). If you admit her in one of the naturopathy institutes, she will have to abstain from the consumption and that will help her to quit. Do not take her out for at least one month or more. When she comes back keep her under vigil and monitor her so that neither she nor other domestic staff will pick cigarettes for her. She may experience a spurt in eating or drinking juices etc. Let her indulge in those foods for some time, only. Put her on an exercise program, and have a thorough medical check up to identify any other damage to her system. If she is unwilling to visit a counselor, get one to come home and talk to her. She can be coaxed to maintain her abstinence under the guidance of a counselor. Make her do meditation; make her stick to a regular schedule of activities, have her involved in interesting and responsible activities. Educate her about all the harmful effects of tobacco smoke and the damage it brings others in the house who smoke both the side-stream smoke and the second-hand smoke. Acupuncture is excellent treatment too.

Is Your Workplace Dragging You Down?

B.A.(H)Psychology, M.A.Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Noida
Is Your Workplace Dragging You Down?

We spend a majority of our time in office. Naturally, the atmosphere of the office affects the way we perceive things around us - our moods, passions and personality. How do you like your office atmosphere? Do you enjoy working with your colleagues? Do you feel respected? It is essential for you to have an affirmative answer to each of these questions, for your own good. But if it is not so, what can you do?

  • Shift: Staying in a negative space will pull you down and harm you. If possible, ask to be transferred to another department. Few of us have the luxury of quitting on a whim. So, update your resume and spread the word that you're looking for a change. Don't quit your current job without having a back-up plan in place. However, when looking for a new job, keep the things you don't like about your current job in mind, so that you don't find yourself in a similar situation again.
  • Find like-minded people: No matter how many colleagues you don't get along with, there must be a few you like. Watch their back and ask them to watch yours. Whenever you hear of anything that might affect the people around you, share the news with them but with discretion. Limit your interaction with people who pull you down and drain your energy.
  • Document everything: Don't let things come to a my word against your's situation. This can be very stressful and harm your health. As far as possible, ensure all your communication is recorded in the form of emails, messages etc. Do not rely on someone else to take notes at meetings, rather make your own. Keeping a work diary is a good idea.
  • Lead by example: Negative people feed off negativity around them. If you are a positive person, they will gradually begin avoiding you themselves or you might even make a positive impact on them. Respect people you work with and you will get their respect in return. Before condemning people, take a look at yourself and ensure that you aren't doing anything to attract that kind of behavior.
  • Do something about it: Complaining can get things off your chest but often do nothing to change the situation. Be a part of the solution to the negativity in your office. Be regular with your own work and stick to your deadlines. If you need something, follow up with people instead of expecting them to follow up with you. 

Lastly, don't try too hard to change the system. You can only control your own life. If you see your efforts going to waste, get back to that resume and start sending it out.

It seems the antidepressant dose is not adequate since all the symptoms have not remitted. You need to review with your psychiatrist explaining the same, he/ she will do the rest. Be patient the dose needs to be achieved and few weeks to pass before full recovery, if not get a 2nd opinion. All the best.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, Once your personal and financial matters are solved then you can sleep peacefully right. First do not worry. Stop worrying bcoz if you worry you can't concentrate on any job right. I want to help you overcome this problem completely. For now I shall give you a small suggestion, try to solve your financial matters bit by bit. Your personal problem may be due to financial reasons only I feel. I will give you one small e.g. Have you ever seen ant storing food for future without giving up working so hard, even when injured it will try to get up and walk or run. Ants will work so hard that is non-stop to achieve. Same way I wanted you to solve your financial matters first at the same time do not allow your personal problem to get worst. Save each and every bit of money to solve your financial problem (part by part). Use money for necessary purpose only. Try doing or working some job or the other I mean honest job, whichever suits you. Do not bother about society. Take care. Do not worry. If your confused or unable to follow my suggestion kindly get back to me. Relax. With regards,
