Dear lybrate-user, procrastination is a common problem, but if not dealt with soon enough, can result in serious consequences in the future. First thing you should know is that you are not able to concentrate, not because your procrastinate, but because you procrastinate, and thus you are not able to concentrate. Procrastination, fidgeting and all sbuch distractive phenomena arise when either your brain is anxious, or your brain is unable to work out a way from a problem you are facing or just because you might not have anything to do. For instance let us say your exams just got over and you don't do any work for a long time, making the recently finished exams a reason for not working. Now what happens is your brain gets used to this routine of" no work" for a long time. And thus, when you start working again, you suddenly realise you had to do so much more. Because your brain starts picking up the fragments of works which were left undone. And this happens to a lot of people. There are multitudinous ways you can control procrastination. But by far the best solution is" meditation" and it is exactly this phenomenon which we intend to control by meditating. And meditation has many forms. You don't have to sit on the floor for hours in" dhayn mudras" meditation is the art of learning how to focus. You can start with anything you like (reading, music. Start with 15 min. Every day. And then, increase it to 30 min. And then an hour or two. You might not have observed but people don't generally procrastinate while doing something they love. Hope this will help you. With best wishes.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, quitting alcohol needs a bit of will power. In case you find it difficult to stop alcohol then you should decrease your alcohol intake on regular basis. On first 7 days try to take one peg less everyday than you drink in other days. On the next 7 days try to decrease another peg. Carry on this process. Homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 15 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water will help to decrease your craving for liquor. For your problems of being over-weight I would advise you to walk for one hour daily. You have to simply burn the extra calories. Now kindly pay attention to quit your addiction for smoking. Quitting smoking is far more difficult than quitting alcohol. You have to control yourself a lot to abstain yourself from smoking. Try to cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke daily. Don't try to stop it all at a once. Homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals in a cup of water effectively helps in quitting smoking.

This can be normal also when we are anxious or tense we do forget things as we are not able to concentrate better. So just breath in and out deeply for around 5 minutes everyday. You will feel better. And let me know after one wk. Also keep a diary of to do work.

I don't like to study, but I have to study I'm a 3rd year student. Please help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Here are six steps to smarter studying: Pay attention in class. Take good notes. Plan ahead for tests and projects. Break it down. (If you have a bunch of stuff to learn, break it into smaller chunks.) Ask for help if you get stuck. Get a good night's sleep! Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise It may be obvious that distractions aren’t helping your focus, but do you actually cut them out? I’ll admit, it can be tempting to put the e-mail alerts on, turn on the IM and answer every request sent your way. But in the end it is only preventing you from concentrating. Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Answer your e-mails at scheduled times. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. Before I write any articles, I define the main focus of the article and get a brief mental picture of the structure. Unclear objectives often result in having to redo sections of work. 4) Divide Blobs Big blobs of tasks that have no clear start or end point destroy focus. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If you are writing a program, get clear on how much commenting you need, what functions you want to use and the flexibility required. If you are writing an article, decide on the length and style. If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. I recommend using a deadline when: 1. Time is limited. If you only have a day to complete work that could easily take weeks, chunking it into specific deadlines will strip away everything that isn’t crucial. 2. It’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. If your task could easily expand to have new features or ideas, use a deadline to keep it under control. 3. To avoid procrastination. A tight deadline can save you if you are worried about procrastinating. 7) Break Down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8 ) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job.

I am smoking from last 12 years, my age is 30. I want to quit smoking for my better health. I tried quitting 2 times, once for 2 months and second time for 4 months in 2011. I definitely want to quit smoking and I want to consult a doctor before I start quit quitting. Please help me with your suggestions. I live in bangalore

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are doing well to want to quit. Having tried it already twice is what quitting smoking is all about: very rarely do people succeed in their first attempt. But persevere you must. When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it again this time I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. I guess you know all the harm cigarettes do to your system, which is why I suppose you are seeking to quit. But now you need to identify 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? like you are doing now. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction.

Hi lybrate-user, we all feel little stressed and sad when we are unable to clear interview we had hopes from, but feeling depressed due to not being able to clear one interview is something you should think about. You are young and there are ample of opportunities for you this was not your life's last interview. So be motivated and keep working towards your bright future. I have confidence you will crack the next one. Yes, if there are few things that you feel you lack while giving interview like confidence, be anxious.

You know your problem is your internet chatting - stop it - only you can decide to stop it - no one can force you to do so. If you still feel tempted , shut down your gadgets at 10 . Fix a time for checking the messages - that too stand in one place , in a room without the fan on - don't walk or sit - this will not allow you to be at it for long. Only if YOU decide to give up the temptation , then you can improve your routine. Social networking is not bad BUT too much of everything is bad. Find time to read '7 Habits of most effective people' by Steven Covey. It will help you be a determined person.

How to Deal With Acute Stress Disorder

Psychologist, Noida
How to Deal With Acute Stress Disorder

What is Acute Stress Disorder
Acute stress reaction usually happens when some stressful events occur. Acute usually indicates that the symptoms occur quickly and do not last for a long time. Symptoms, such as anxiety and stress occur when exposed to stressful events. It is believed that acute stress disorder occurs after unexpected crisis like traumatic events, serious accidents, domestic violence, sexual assaults or sudden bereavement. Acute stress reactions are commonly seen in people who have experienced major disasters or terrorist incidents.

Symptoms of Acute Stress Reaction
Symptoms of the condition develop very quickly, within minutes to hours in response to a stressful condition. Some of the symptoms are:

  1. Anxiety, mood changes, emotional trauma (ups and downs), poor concentration and sleep, irritability and the desire to be alone
  2. Unpleasant recurrent dreams
  3. Avoiding situations and people who may cause anxiety and stress
  4. Emotionally numb
  5. Nausea, palpitations, headaches, abdominal pain, difficulty in breathing and chest pain are usually caused by the stress hormones like epinephrine.

Management of Acute Stress Disorder
Generally treatment is not required as the symptoms go when the stressful episode is over. Talking to family and friends or understanding the symptoms is helpful. Some people might experience extended symptoms. The following can be done:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This is the therapy where a person can talk to an experienced therapist to understand the patterns and the triggers that charge the problem. The aim of the therapist is to change the way a person thinks and help him avoid the thoughts and be more realistic and calm. Usually when CBT is used for acute stress disorder patients then it is termed as trauma focused CBT.

Counselling: This is usually done when the symptoms are more severe or persistent. It is helpful as it helps to explore the way to deal with the stress and its symptoms. Psychiatrists help by counselling the people and also there are many online resources, which might be helpful.

Thiss is not an age for Memory loss.Actually it is not loss of memory ,but we take things for granted.Just ask yourself,Do you ever forget to take or give money to a person whom you have lent money or from whom you have taken money.Actually we are so much occupied with our daily work that our mind ignore less important things and we ourselves term it as Memory loss.It i just stress due to over load of work and nothing else.We all have pushed ourselves into lot of stress trying to do many thing in one time and here start the problems.We start feeling irritated and due to thiss irritation and frus stration of not giving 100% in work,we start skipping important things from our mind thus making the things even more worse.Certain homoeopathic medicines and an exercise will help you for your problem but I again say that just try to be focused and complete thingss in a most peacefully manner and environment and homoeopathic medicine will help you in this direction.

Dear, Welcome to Lybrate. Nicotine and alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Shampoo should be used only two times a week. Hairs should be washed with curd for removing dandruff. Spicy or fried foodstuffs should not be eaten. Excessive cream or jell should not be applied on hairs. Please also take Nux vom - once daily at night. For further queries get back to me.
