I face difficulty in concentration while studying. I am unable to concentrate for even 10 minutes. Things of past and future start coming to my mind and I get distracted. I am very worried about myself. I can't give myself quality time in study. Please help me and take me out from this weird and annoying problem. Thank You.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

There is some stress that is causing this distraction for which I recommend you meet with a counselor and sort that out. In the meantime do 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 is 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. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week • Other vegetables: At least one a day • Nuts: Five servings a week • Berries: Two or more servings a week • Beans: At least three servings a week • Whole grains: Three or more servings a day • Fish: Once a week • Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week • Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. • Wine: One glass a day You avoid: • Red meat: Less than four servings a week • Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily • Cheese: Less than one serving a week • Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week • Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week

Hi sir I am in confusion as I like one person whole heartely and wants to be his life patner but he loved a girl but she cheated him so he talked with me so many times and gave so many suggestions about my future and encourages me a lot but suddenly he avoiding me I don't know the real reason in that time an unknown friend chatted with me and then proposed me but my heart doesn't accepted that in this situation I am not able to studying well as before I am a good and intelligent and hardworking nature girl but now my mind was totally disturbed and now I can't putting minimum interest on my studies even though I am curious about my studies and I have soo many future plannings but these consequences disturbing me a lot every sec that boy whom I loved a lot getting into my mind but I don't want to talk with him until I get a job so please help me in getting interest on my studies and to forget those memories from my mind and I want to put all my efforts on my studies and I want to put whole concentration on my studies only rather than to spoil my time so please help me in getting good co contraction and also tell me some probable suggestions to avoid that boy who proposed me.

M. S. in Psychotherapy and Counselling

Hi, first of all break all the contact with the guy who proposed u. Delete all conversation with him from your phone, mail, block him from everywhere. Secondly write down your short term and long term goals on a paper and paste it in your room so that it is visible to you every time you enter the room. And about the boy you like, if you don't want to get married or don't want to be in a relationship right now then don't interact with him much either. Keep yourself busy in your studies keeping your goals in your mind. You can attach the thought of love with your parents photo in your mind so whenever you get distracted by the thought of love your parent's photo will come in front of you. This will stop your mind to wander. Also have healthy food and have lots of water. Go for a brisk walk daily with some music in your ear. Keep thinking about your future.

Dear, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Sir I want to study more and more but I dint concentrate in studies what should I have to do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

You need help from a psychiatrist. Depression like any other illness needs supervised care and medication. If a particular medication does not suit you, you may report this to your treating psychiatrist and opt for a better medication. Once medications are started you may start feeling better. For online assistance and treatment you may contact me.

Our is a love marriage and we have a healthy relationship for past 12 years. But for the past few months there has been some problems in our relationship that is what I feel. My wife had taken a break from her work for the last 3 years and now she has again started working and is very ambitious about her career. I too am supportive for the same. Currently she is away for 3 months for a training and whenever we meet we spend good time throughout the day but have arguments or fights on any small thing. I am unable to understand that whether she is into relationship with some other person. As we have also spoken on this too as she has a friend who is overseas and he keeps on calling her and they speak to each other for hours that is what I have found out. When I have discussed with her she says that he is just a very good friend of her. I do not know how to tackle this situation or is that I am doubting on her. I do not want to lose her and also do not want our relationship to get affected. Please advice.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Dear friend, you sound stressed and very concerned. As you are happily married for 12 years now I am sure you have understood that love is not just a feeling, it's a verb - an action word. This is the time in your relationship that you really love her and show your love towards her in your actions. I am sure you have that in you and you would be able to focus on it once you are clear about what needs to be done. When we are stressed doubtful or ambiguous it shows in our tone our body language and in our energy. So first of all change the energy within you. Replace what you have with love care and understanding. She has started working after 3 years break and also she us away. This might be a stressful time for her. She might have one or other kind of fear about how will you respond if she talks with you about her struggles. That could be the reason for her to turn to a friend for guidance and support. Or there could be any such reason for her current behavior. When you two are togather next time, tell her genuinely that yiu really want to understand how she feels and what are her struggles. You want to be there for her in her time of need. And listen deeply to what she says. And when you listen deeply there is no judgement there is no right or wrong. Just understanding thing as it is. Ask her how could you support her. What she needs from you? she may want to hear that everything will be okay. Even the strong individual's needs to listen this sometimes. In nut she'll be there for her and love her. If you would like to discuss specific situation and your response to it and if yiu are open for online consultation feel free to contact me. My ph. D. Is in marriage and relationship counselling and it's my passion. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Sir my uncle age 57 years old they have useing alchohal in very big value what can we to leave this bad habbit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you think that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called? cross addictions? i. E. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend aa meetings and continue this support for a long time. His family will also need to attend some sessions and go for al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. His children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father? s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the adult children of alcoholics syndrome (acoas), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. If your uncle refuses to go for rehabilitation, then some centers have a method of picking him up when he is totally sloshed and is not able to fight back effectively. They will need the family? s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else? s support he can get and act on it fast.

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Sexologist, Mumbai
Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

As per medical studies, bipolar disorder is a personality disorder that is said to affect millions of people around the world, as per medical studies. Extreme mood swings that take a person from a state of euphoria to depression can be called bipolar disorder. While we all go through phases of the same, the patients who suffer from this disorder will usually show a persistent swing or shift between varying moods. The severe shifts will lead to difficulties when it comes to managing one's everyday affairs in a normal manner. The symptoms and signs are also characterised by the phases and mood swings that the patient may be going through. 

Read on to know more about the signs and symptoms of bipolar disorder:

  1. Mania: One of the extremes in mood swings experienced by the patient includes extreme euphoria or mania for no apparent, or life altering reason. Feeling overly happy and enthusiastic are the basic symptoms of this phase.
  2. Impulsive: The patient can end up feeling elated for a prolonged period of time, with extreme restlessness and impulsive behaviour. They may also end up getting agitated and edgy. This is usually characterised by fidgety behaviour and when the patient speaks too fast. The patient may speak too fast due to racing thoughts which overtake his or her speech and actions.
  3. Confidence: In this stage, the patient may also display extraordinary confidence, which may not necessarily be backed by reality. In reality, things may be very different in terms of opportunities, skills, people and other such factors. During this mania phase, the patient may also indulge in risky behaviour that gives an adrenaline rush like gambling and having sexual intercourse with multiple partners. This usually happens when the patient is bolstered by a sudden surge of unfounded confidence.
  4. Depression: This is the other end of the spectrum for these patients. When the mania abates, it gives to way to extreme depression and even anxiety.
  5. Withdrawal: The patient usually tends to isolate himself or herself from the rest of the family and social circle for a prolonged period, refusing to meet anyone on a normal basis. They also avoid contact with people whom they meet every day, which can have an adverse effect on their work and the rest of the aspects of their lives.
  6. Memory and Concentration: In this phase, the patient can also experience difficulty in remembering important things and concentrating on tasks. The patient may also be preoccupied with a number of things which can prevent him or her from making proper decisions. Slow speech and lack of energy may follow as a result of such preoccupation. Preoccupation with death is a common symptom of this phase. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

You can change your social surrounding and try to remove things that relate you to that person. As time passes the feeling of loss will fade away. You can go for grievance counseling.
