How to increase concentration. And remember whatever study. Suggest some medicine which help but did not harm. And some exercise.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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.

Not to worry. If you want to cure then you have to quit the habit of smoking. Need to meet to psychiatrist to detoxification & further treatment. You can join deaddiction center also/ join narcotics anonymous meeting nearest your area. Na meetings also help you to solve your problem of smoking. The main thing is your own self control power who helps you to quit the addiction of smoking.

From the last one year I am facing a situation, I can control my dreams. In my dreams I pinch myself and get to know its a dream. When I feel no pain I start enjoying dream. I do whatever I want to do, I fly in dreams, kill people, hav sex, use magical powers, buy things, visit places so, every night is a excitement for me and as a result I like dreams more than reality. But during day I am all right. I do my daily tasks job, study and family responsibilities. Why this? I am afraid some day I might become a psycho? please explain.

Dreams is one of the automatic defense mechanism that helps in ventilating our unfulfilled desires in our unconscious mind thereby acting as a stress buster. Do not worry about its effects till you feel that you have confusion between dreams and real life.

These are anxiety attacks and the feeling can appear real if you indulge in it. This fear may have past origins and that is worth exploring. If there is unnecessary stress at home or in your life for various reasons they can also cause much anxiety. Your rational mind is not coming in with reality based data to sufficiently stave off this fear. If, for example, you are doing everything right in terms of stress-free lifestyle, good food, regular exercise, and proper sleep, I think it is safe to then say that you are causing a lot of this over-reaction. Anxiety is all in the perception: if you believe that there is a problem it will manifest so in your mind as real and therefore the reaction. So go for some counseling and discuss these matters thoroughly to relieve yourself of this problem. Stress management courses will also help. If it gets really bad I recommend that you meet with a doctor.

Hello doctors. Good Evening. Am a 31 years old private sector employee & also a father of 2 years old sweet daughter. Am facing with some unwanted back of the mind fear which i don't know about but can realize it's effecting my carrier along with daily life. Need your suggestion on this pls how to overcome from such situation.

Have you had this fear before, especially during your late adolescence? If that is the case it may have some earlier origins, due to some trauma in your life. Even so, you can do several things to combat it and live a normal life and career: talk to a counselor regularly and see what you identify as its source and its modus operandi in your life. Do regular and vigorous exercise daily. Sleep well and eat well too. Attend some emotional management course with a professional. Take some multivitamins with some calcium tablets, the combination will de-stress you. Reduce the pressure in your life both at home and at work. Life is full of difficulties. Those who are good at responding to it by discipline will overcome the challenges that life poses.

Hi I'm 26 years old male and for some reasons i'm stopped talking to others, even if I like to talk to others i'm simply ignoring to talk. Please suggest me how I can come out of this?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It seems that you are scared to talk to people. The desire is there but the fear is crippling you. You need to meet with a counselor to deal with this fear and learn how to express the feeling as well as to reach out. Are you afraid that you may not speak well, or that your ideas are not that good, or that people will judge you, or that they will find out about how poor you are intellectually, etc? these are unnecessary dialogues you have and they are not true at all. When people are in conversation, we are listening to information and how you present the same. You are very harsh on yourself and have decided, for some reason, that you are not good enough. Start talking to people at home first, particularly children, and slowly grade up to older teens and then to adults, as you build confidence. If you prepare and rehearse the conversation you are likely to have, you will do very well when you actually do it. Now there is no guarantee that whatever you prepared is going to be the exact conversation but since you are prepared most of the conversation will go according to script and the rest will be easy to handle because they will be minor deviations from the main course. You could attend the toastmasters club, and go for conversational skills courses too. Good social practice will eventually see you through. Nothing will happen, if you are passive about this. Besides it is bad manners; and additionally people will misjudge you thinking you are a snob and you have an attitude, if you don't speak to people!

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, your recovery can be fastened.

Dear , relax! I understand how you must be feeling. I understand its difficult to trust in such conditions. But your imagination will definitely will spoil things. Don't feel rejected or dejected or ditched or feeling of being fooled. Sometimes such affairs just happen. These are insignificant events of life. Take charge of your life. And stay happy try to behave normally, meet any counsellor face to face.

Dear lybrate-user, exam phobia or exam fear comes under the head of performance anxiety. This fear is a common picture among students and the feelings increase when students start studying. In extreme cases this phenomenon becomes exam phobia. The symptoms of exam phobia can be easily observed and addressed. It is an irrational and powerful fear and aversion to exams. Overwhelming anxiety can affect memory and students may forget answers even if they knew. The best method to overcome exam phobia is to" always bear in mind that we are studying only to live and not living only to study" don't force yourself to get high marks at least for the time being. Enjoy learning. You should consult a psychologist online or offline for counseling. Take care.

During the night you will tend to use your unconscious mind more, especially during deep REM sleep. It is likely that you are waking up with the old memories and emotions that are buried in the unconscious mind from childhood and they are seeking a resolution. You must study the emotions and meet with a counselor to see what needs to be done. There is nothing to be alarmed about as this helps in unearthing old issues, which with the resolution, will make you feel completely fine and well too. Expressing feelings will be very important and issues that you have chosen to bury because they may have been too traumatic to keep remembering will get its due attention.

Last month l lost my father, then I feel very depressed prefer keeping to myself all the time.
Loss of a beloved father is a great trauma. Its natural. To feel sad for the loss. This will take some time for you to recover from this loss. Just follow some humble suggestions - donot stay alone - be with your friends and family - talk your heart out. Do not keep things to yourself even if they seem less important - do not make any drastic changes in life immediately. Avoid making any concrete decisions at this moment. Get suggestions from well-wishers and family members - if you continue to feel more and more depressed and find difficult to come out of it, do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist for treatment. Depression is treatable.

Rtms is not a established mode of treatment. For some resistant cases it is tried but the results in studies so far r not very strongly favorable. It is a costly treatment. The money you r thinking of investing in this can be more suitably utilized in consulting a good psychotherapist who can give way better results den rtms.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Your problem is social anxiety disorder (sad). Sad 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. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist. Take care.

Your brother's behavior is obviously not normal. By abnormal, I mean he is interfering in someone else's life. Such kind of behavior is threatening to others. He is overindulging himself in making friends with others. This is like forcing others to become friends. This is a sort of passive aggression which is characteristic of depressed individuals. He tries to be close to others but gets irritated by their rejection. He feels unworthy and due to this he resends friend requests. Getting to know strangers may be good way of socializing but he is unnecessarily bothering others and himself. He needs to make friends in real life. Virtual friends do not add much to your social satisfaction. This way he may create legal problems for himself too. He needs professional counseling.
