Over thinking can cause headaches. Counselling can help you to understand yourself better and manage your thoughts so that they don't overwhelm you and you become an emotionally stable and functional person.

Sir what to do for good best peaceful mind there are too much noise in envt. How to concentrate in study and be a good person.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Yu can practise meditaion and yoga. CONCENTRATION TIPS 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 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. 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. 4) Divide Blobs. 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 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. 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. Regards.

At this age, I would wonder why you do not have the urge. It could mean that your testosterone levels have not had a spurt and therefore the sexual agenda and appetite have not been triggered. Maybe you have a delayed response to the hormone. So if you wait for some time, it is likely to get stimulated and then your sexual urges and libido will likely spurt.

You have not mentioned age of your friend. As you said if it is when working for long time, try reducing stress by taking relaxation in between by meditation and mind relaxation methods. If not controlled somemediceins can be tried. Ask privately.

Your level of fear is extreme. You may check your prenatal history to examine for any contributing factors. Then meet with a counselor and work out this fear. You need to be in charge od your fear but in your case, it seems that fear is dominating you and is taking a heavy toll on your wellbeing. Some effective emotional therapy will do great justice to your health. These could be hysterical reactions to this undealt fear. You must immediately seek help from a counselor. Your fear is creating an obsession and that will gradually lead to anxiety and compulsive behaviors. Before it gets out of control and difficult to deal with seek help earlier, especially about this fear. If the fear is of recent origin, you could perhaps identify it and deal with it. But if it is from a long past, then much work has to be done to sort that out. Sometimes this kind of nervousness could be genetic too. In the meantime, you must do certain things to build your constitution physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Anyway, what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well-being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. You could forget the location of items after keeping it somewhere. This is normal and happens with almost everyone. This forgetting happens due to preoccupation with other priorities or obsessive thinking. I suggest online counselling and cognitive behavior therapy. Take care.

My mom aged 55 yrs staying alone and does not want to visit any on of us (2 brothers 1 sister). Post marriage she underwent depression by thinking we betrayed her and no more behaving like her son's. Father expired 15 years ago. She complains abnormal heart beat, anxiety and always cries for money and expenses. She is not listening to us and very stubborn. She is diabetic patient. I want to take her for psychological counselling but she is not ready. How to tackle this type of situation? Could you please suggest?

She must have missed, and is probably missing her husband, a great deal. Then she may have relied on you children. But after marriage she thinks that your devotion to your spouses means that she is no longer important to all of you. May be a bit of old school thinking! you will need to make her feel wanted and important even if you are all married. Her illnesses are her way of getting your attention. Knowing this you must give her a lot of attention for healthy reasons and assure her of your love always. Now to practically solve this problem you must visit her on a long trip and stay with her and make a lot of fuss over her, and very smartly invite a counselor over to the house. Let that person handle the situation after you have briefed the individual about her background. While she wants your attention she may play games around it and complain because she is missing all of you and her husband. So keeping this in mind be soft, caring, and loving with her. If you are all in the same town or nearby, make it a point that one of you are always there in turns so that she will not feel lonely. Then over a period of time just take her back with you to each house so that she has a variety of experiences of your love in a variety of homes and she will gradually get better. Any way your counselor will advise you further.

Dear lybrate user. Your symptoms are suggestive of you being in depression. A person when in major depression has low neurotransmitters like serotonin in brain and thus is very difficult for him to motivate himself. He has a negative attribution style for almost everything around him which is similar to what you are having. Easy irritability or irritability on minor provocation leading to anger outbursts as in your case is a part of depression. Due to negative attribution and easy irritability social interactions get limited as is your problem. You are not anti-social as the term is justified for people who take undue advantage of others around and go beyond the legal and social norms to benefit self. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist and get started on medications as soon as possible. Gradually over time cbt and other life changes may be brought about. With medications you will start feeling better by say 10 to 15 days from the start. I hope you take the step in right directions and get better soon. Take care.

Codeine addiction is worsened by increasing tolerance levels for the drug. If you are having a serious addiction and you cannot quit its use, you will have to admit yourself to a rehabilitation center and go through their program for a complete recovery. This type of treatment is ideal because it takes you away from the influences of people and circumstances that you have gotten conditioned to and will make it easier in a different geographical location. When you come out of the center you must continue with addiction counseling for three years at least before being free of the enslavement. You will also need to attend na meetings regularly and get a lot of support from other users who are also recovering. You will need to make some lifestyle changes and work on the stress that is normally the reason most youngsters get addicted to codeine. There is also the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factors, and the script issue that has to be worked upon with the counselor. You will need to start regular vigorous exercise, sleep well, and start on a healthy diet. You must follow a tight time schedule with interesting and productive activities. The counselor will also teach you new ways of finding joy without the use of chemicals. You should socialize with people, join new groups, attend conferences, meetings, seminars etc. To be involved with other important activities in your neighborhood. You will need to go for a thorough medical checkup and determine that there was no serious damage to your body because of the abuse.

Hi, Doctor, i tend to think too much on very small problems also. I get depressed to frequently. It's fact that I'm facing challenge in every aspect of life, getting backs in MCA, rejection in interviews due to various silly reasons, not getting results as efforts I make every where, I feel like looser, feel like I'm too humble and polite and not made for this society. I have some very good friends who support me, but when we can't communicate few days I feel alone and have nobody whom to talk. Last month I despite giving my 100% not able to achieve my target in my business due to some other reasons. I just broked , and not able to sleep 3 days.

I think that you are working too hard instead of working smart. If you concentrate on the small details, then you may miss the larger picture. Sit down and work out a strategy to concentrate on the right and useful material to be able to succeed. Failure is only failure, if you do not learn from it. When you learn, it is experience. And success is the contribution of all the failure that is now nothing but experience. I think it was Bill Cosby who said, that he does not know how to succeed but he surely knows how to fail: by trying to please everybody! You need to perform to your satisfaction because you know what you have prepared for. A people-pleaser will bend backwards and get rejected eventually by everyone. Yes, to some extent it is a ?dog-eat-dog world, but to combat that, you have got to be street-smart. Perseverance is the key that has made ordinary people become great. You are still young, and the whole world is out there to conquer. In your generation you have so many options and opportunities that we feel jaded and worn out just looking at them! So, start all over again but this time around plan well, focus on the larger picture and the process. You will get there, eventually. Talk to a counselor, if you need any help and support to pursue this path. The perception of failure is the biggest problem. It can actualize failure and make you dejected. Change your thoughts and you will change who you are.

Dear lybrate user, you are stressed out and you know that you are stressed out. The problem is that stress becomes more and more difficult to manage when we start accepting that particular situations and activities will bring back the stress in us. In your case it is talking with another person. So you know that when you talk to somebody you will have shivering and high heart rate and since you have already observed this thing about yourself-this has become a recurring phenomenon in your life. First of all dissociate yourself with this fact by again in again repeating this activity and situation. Don't avoid talking with people. In fact make it a habit to talk to as many people as possible. You will have initial difficulty but as and when you continue giving yourself the same situation the difficulty in managing that situation will keep on fading and one day it will completely vanish. This is the best way that you can manage and conquer your fears. Regards

Your loss is understandable. But your mourning and sadness about your loss is taking too long for you to recover. Feeling sad, depressed and hopeless about life are signs of depression. Without any further delay I would suggest you to reach out and consult a psychiatrist with a family member with all your details so that an appropriate management can be started. Depression like any other illness is treatable and once you are out of it you will be fine. Follow few suggestions. Never stay alone always speak out if you have feelings of self harm or suicide and ask someone for help. Talk to friends and family and people who care about you.
