I'm 19 yr old nd I cant concentrate on studies. I always have pain in head. What should I do?

M. Phil Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Consult a general physical to rule out any medical cause. If you've already done that then you might want to inculcate the following: - 30 minutes of physical activity - you can also try breathing exercises for a few minutes every day. - create a structured plan for each day. It will help you feel less anxious about your study material. Make sure to not do too much initially.

My boy is aged 16yrs. He is very poor in study and very lazy and careless. When we try to understand for leaving lazyness and to be serious study he behave unlisten. He don't have dream for his future even not any hobby. Kindly suggest what I should do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Please take him for a career guidance test and an aptitude test. These will determine what he is made for in terms of his profession. He could, if necessary, switch over to something technical and do a diploma, and if he proves himself good for that he may enter engineering by skipping a couple of years because of his diploma and complete the course in a shorter duration. Ideally, he could have pursued his studies, but if he is not inclined and is more drawn towards something technical, he may respond with more vigor. At this age he is likely to be going through a spurt in the male sex hormone, testosterone. Due to this chemical he will have three behaviors not at all known to him: he will be sexually active, rebellious and aggressive, and he will have acne and pimple problems. Fortunately, this has a two-year duration only and he will stabilize after that. But if you do not work with him carefully, he could do quite some damage to his life and to that of the family: I advice you not to follow that path. Be understanding, and keep all communications channels open. You need to be firm and completely unwilling in three areas of choices: if it is criminal, if it is life-threatening, and if it is immoral. Follow a path of least resistance and work as though you are with him, always.

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.

You need to practice accepting what is happening to you. Do not overreact to this or any events of life. Be calm and take diet balanced, exercise, meditate, practice yoga of patanjali aphorisms. And breathing exercises, meditate and try what happens.

How to over come by repeated thoughts and depression and to get concentration power.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS, FECSM
Psychiatrist,
How to over come by repeated thoughts and depression and to get concentration power.
Hello lybrate-user you seems to be having problems with repeated thoughts. This needs further evaluation as it can be repetitive, negative and may interfere with your work. We need to understand how your mood is most of the times and also how distressed you are with this condition. Also, you would need to understand that this is a problem and hence be engaged in cognitive therapy to change your thoughts positively. Proper schedule, exercises and engaging in activities helps.

I usually distract whenever I do the study. I can't concentrate on study. Why? Please give solution as much as possible.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Easy distraction is due to poor attention span and poor concentration levels. You can increase that by adopting simple techniques. Divide your study topic into small related parts, study in breaks, relax after 30-45 min of study, try to recollect that you have gone through every 30 min in short and then only begin another topic. Always correlate things that you have studied. Donot study unrelated topics on same day. If you still ding difficulty in maintaining concentration and attention start medicines with my advice.

I am 12 student I want to konw how to sharp our mind in studies and how to concentrate our mind in studies, sir plzz hlp me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Implement some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too. 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. Avoid sugar and junk food.

My son is 13yrs old, and he is not taking anythings seriously and even not interested in his studies all time joking and he feels all things are easy in life please help me how to make him understand.

M. Phil Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Hyderabad
How is his performance in school? how is his behavior otherwise? at 13 your child is at a very fragile age and will need to be handled carefully. Make sure that you show keen interest in activities that he likes. If possible, participate in them. This will help you establish a rapport with him and he' s more likely to take you seriously if he sees that you' re trying to understand him.

Is it any mental disorder that I get angry quickly and start to scold shout and after some times I regret for my behaviour and started to crying lonely, I get tears after watching any kind of little emotional scene . Some people call me that I am getting mad and need counselling.Please tell.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate user, you are not getting mad and you do not have any mental disorder. But what is happening is, your suppressed grief and sad feelings are coming to surface, the moment you see someone in pain. When you cry after watching an emotional scene, you are actually not crying for the characters in the movie/serials, but you are letting your own pain an outlet, by crying. You are experiencing your suppressed pain and hence you get emotional at the smallest trigger, and start crying. Your friends are right in saying that counselling will help you. Please consult a counsellor. The counsellor will help you to get in touch with your own suppressed sad feelings and and will help you to let it out. Once you do this you will have better emotional control. Take care.

Clonazepam when used once or twice a month is ok for anxiety, but since you have dreams and feeling exhausted in day time, taking something to get your dreams regulated like melatonin analogues would help a lot. All the best.

Your alcoholism is not at all useful especially if you are frustrated and'addicted' to dreams which are unrealistic: this will only further the frustration and the alcoholism. Being divorced and having the custody of your child, you have a very important responsibility where you must act and remain sober. A failure in your career and personal life does not make a very reliable person and this is being imbibed by your daughter every day. Considering all these facts, your alcoholism will give you temporary relief and an equally vengeful reaction after the wearing out of the alcohol. During the high you will fantasize a lot and will tend to believe in those pipedreams. So, it is a vicious circle of dreaming high when you are drunk and slumping low when you are sober and discovering that it was all wild imaginations and this will make you dip into a depression. You may be scripted to ruin your life in this fashion and alcohol is a good aid to meet this tragic end. You need serious counseling or rehabilitation quickly to make straight your life and career. You may use antabuse as a preventive medication and abide with the counseling for a period of three years of abstinence. You will need to attend aa meetings simultaneously, and your daughter, depending on her age, will also need to attend al-teen meetings to resolve her issues connected to your drinking. You need to be responsible for the two of you and with proper counseling all aspects of your life can be put in order.
