Suffering with serious concentration problem. Not able to concentrate for a second on any thing.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Obviously something is troubling you and it is causing much distraction. If you are young your hormones may cause a lot of disturbance to take you away from your focus. If your level of stress is too much it can affect your 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.

Hi, I am 56 year old man I have a problem of short temper I get angry very often. I go restless when every any person doesn't do as I say. What should I do for this. I have tried meditation but its not working. Tell me what to do.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Well, it sounds like you have control issues. Control issues normally stem from fear. In that case, you are escalating anger over the fear to enforce the control. So, ideally, you need to work with a counselor on what the fear is all about and where it originated. Once you take care of this you will not need to control and therefore you will not act angrily or with a short fuse. When you cover up the fear with anger, nobody will be aware of your fear and they will react to your anger, which is not the real feeling. So what happens to the fear? It gets buried under and will continue to haunt you later, perhaps more vehemently. I don?t know how long this has been going on but it is time to bring a check to it and reveal your fear and deal with it appropriately.

My mind is diverting, so I can't concentrate on my studies. so what I should do for concentration?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, the duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please provide me with more information, I can help you with this. Take care.

One of my family member is addicted with smoking and is unable to relax. How can he quit smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That is the way to give up smoking anyway: suddenly and immediately. The effects will be just great but depending on the amount of cigarettes he smokes, there will be a withdrawal reaction. That can be countered by some substitution methods that are useful and eases the withdrawal. His decision to want to quit is very welcome (if that is true) and you must do all you can to encourage and support him. Here are the ways to stop the smoking: First of all 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 he decides, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since he wants to do it I recommend that he seeks the help of a counselor and do it with support. He needs to identify with why he smokes: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. He may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because he has become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels 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. He may join Smokers Anonymous in his city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep him 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 he has quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. To help process all of the above and to get support, let him go for counseling and persevere with it until he is completely over it.

How to detect that one is in depression. I have heared some treatment like RTS or some kind of brain stimulating rejvenating technique . Is that right?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I don't know about RTS but there is brain rejuvenation Program but that is not for treating depression. Your question about knowing whether you are depressed will take a long answer. So briefly let me explain: you can get depressed because of sadness or anger. The symptoms are that you will feel dull, listless, low energy, melancholy, no motivation, lethargy, withdrawn, very sleepy, sleep late to bed and late out of bed, not able to attend work, eat too much or eat too little, become slow in activity, may become aggressive and rude, break relations with people, may go off sex, etc. In very severe cases suicidal thoughts may torment the person and at an impulsive moment they may act on it. The lethargy may be so extreme that even thinking will be a tedious task. Some people resort to substance abuse and become addicted. There is no quick easy way out although there are good medicines for depression. It is always recommended that you simultaneously seek professional counseling to work with the medicine.

I was ditched by a girl during my studies. It was very bad incident. I decided to concentrate on my studies and doing that one. But regular intervals my mind was going to past things which are giving pain. Tell me how must I focus to my career and to forget my past.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don; t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

We took her to religious scholar she was recovering but suddenly she is like jerking her body and starts vibrating her legs and arms. We took her to psychiatrists but of no use.

Dear lybrate user, if appears that this lady does not have any physical ailment. The psychiatric medicines have not helped much. In such situation it is very important to understand the motive behind her behaviour. It might be" attention seeking personality disorder" in which the person tries very hard to seek attention from others, at any cost. There are a number of reasons why the person needs this attention so desperately. To know more about all this, take her to a counsellor. The counsellor might be able to understand her behaviour after talking to her. I think she will need counselling along with some medicines. Take her to the counsellor, who can start her therapy. You may have to consult a psychiatrist again for medicines because a counsellor cannot prescribe medicines. The counsellor and the psychiatrist will work together to help this lady. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user! You have gone through difficulties in life, struggled hard, as you told life in Kashmir is really tough, that is the reason your heart and mind is so soft and sensitive. I will suggest you it is up to you to carry out or not, you can do some social service like providing food for the poor, food or clothing or donation to the orphans or orphanage, which will give you emotional satisfaction. You need to keep going on and on right. There are people who are good as well as bad, it is a mixture of good and evil, you can't actually stay stagnant at one point and keep thinking about this 4G life, which is Kaliyug according to Lord Vishnu, if you do so people will cheat and let you down. You are good, be good, do good, live good, but do not interfere in others affair unless otherwise you have the power to do so, it is proverb survival of the fittest, that is this 4G LIFE AND WORLD. Everything has changed. So you need to do your duty alone cannot expect the result. Soul as you know is immortal, it takes the place of another body after one body is destructed just like tearing our clothes, that is the chain. Be strong. Be good. Live good till your breath. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, please do not think about your fathers affairs. He is not doing any injustice towards. If you go his age then you think about his problem. Now you feel it is mistake. But in my opinion it is not mistake. How we know his personal problems and personal interests. So do not be depressed. Do not think about the past depressive status. Feel very good friendly with him. Please share any one close friend girls only. Do not share with boys. If it is problem leave it. Ignore the problem that is his problem not yours so do not concentrate and do not think about this problem. It is right as his age. It is not right to think about his problem. If you cross this 40 then you can understand ok do not feel about it.

I will be so calm and quite with my friends but I am always getting angry without any reason when I am in my house or with parents. Could you please help me.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Probably, you are not allowed to be yourself at home. Probably there are many things about your parents, that make you angry but you are unable to express your feelings. You have suppressed anger towards your parents. Hence you are getting angry with them all the time. Please try to find out, what are you angry about. May be you want more freedom, more love, more attention, less restrictions etc. Etc. Once you realise what is bothering you, talk to them without getting angry. Try to convey to them how you feel, when they behave in certain ways. Also please try to think from your parent's view point. They probably are still treating you like a child. Make them understand that you are growing up now, take responsibilities, which you can shoulder. Assure them of your abilities and strengths. All the best.

Its an old saying. Men offer the term 'Marriage' to have sex and women offer 'Sex' to get married. In a Practical world, all men think about is Sex - not friendship, nor soulmates, nor 3 am friends, nor acquaintences, nor brother-like person, nor wellwisher, nor family friend. I simply fail to understand, why women donot understand this basic practical rule followed by men. And then women cry wolf. Go to a Psychiatrist or a psychotherapist to get assessed and or counseling regarding practical life situations

Dear lybrate user, please understand certain things first! you are only 21 hence you need not say/think that you are single for a" very long time" 2. Even if you have achieved full sexual growth, this is your age to concentrate more on your studies and career. 3. There has to be some strong reason why you are having sexual feelings towards your mother. May be your father is absent from your life, may be your mother looked at you as her support and crossed her boundaries or she is looking at you for support and loves you a lot and also thinks that you are still a child and is treating you like that. But she may not have any sexual feelings towards you. Please understand that each relation is enjoyable and is healthy only when certain boundaries are maintained. Understand your relation with your mother and maintain your boundaries. You can masturbate to satisfy your sexual needs, but fantasizing sex with your mother will very harmful, emotionally for both of you. Please understand that if you just keep imagining things like this, one day you might do it actually, in the spurt of that moment and then you will carry huge shame, guilt for the rest of your life. Now, it is advisable for you to keep some other women to take care of your mother. You need to stay away from her. Stop sharing the same bed. Spend more time with people of your age and who have similar interests. Try to find a life partner of your age and enjoy life.

Dear Sir/Madam, I want help for my mother. She is 62 years old and suffering from some mental tension for past 7-8 years. The problem she is facing is that she never remains happy with anyone at home whether it is me or my father or my wife. She always remain angry and also she does not take proper diet as well. She hardly eats 1 meal in the day and does not takes interest in other activities as well like travelling, watching movies, going for shopping, she does not like anything. Despite of so much attention given to her she always feels and remain silent, quite and angry. Most of the time she does not even reply to us. All this was there from last 7-8 years but from last 2 years or so it got further deteriorated that was after we lost her brother (my uncle or mama). But on the contrary she does not act in the same way with the outsiders, I mean she is fine with neighbors and other relatives, her rude behavior is just for us her own people who loves her very much. Please advice what I shall do in order to help her from this situation. I have asked her to visit a doctor for this problem but she always refuses. Lastly please advice me which doctor can help me I.e a psychologist or a psychiatrist as I do not know the difference between both. Thanks and Regards

Dear lybrate-user, You can consult a psychiatrist who will treat your mother with drugs and therapy. You can also consult a clinical psychologist who will spend more time with your mother and treat with therapy. It depends on the comfort level of your mother with the therapist, the distance, fees, availability, etc. You may need to visit the therapist frequently to find improvement. Remember these mental tensions are treatable just like any other illnesses. If she is refusing, please contact the therapist yourself. You will learn how to deal with her refusal. All the best.

Using antidepressants at early age. It is not good for your health. It has side effects. You may suffer in future. Unnecessary problems may occur. Better to follow stress relief methods. And know stress relief management. Share your feelings with closed once. Take the help of elders. It is good all the time. Concentrate on your studies. Do not concentrate on medical aspects. Know what you need. Better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling has no side effects. It improves your personality. So consult psychologist. Best of luck.

For strong lungs, chew 3 to 5 peppermint leaves each day. To treat congestion, add a few drops of peppermint oil to a pot of hot water and inhale the steam. You can also drink 2 cups of peppermint tea daily. To make the tea, add 1 teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves to a cup of hot water.
