I am not able to concentrate on my education. When I sit for studying, I have started thinking on other matters. What should I do for better concentration?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your distracted mind is playing havoc: there is a reason for that though.I firmly suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 are 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.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Memory depends on understanding, retention and recollection. To recollect properly, you have to retain the knowledge. To retain properly you have to understand whatever you read. To understand you have to use creative reading methodologies the" creative learning methods" will help you. I suggest educational counselling. Take care.

I'm a smoking weed and I want to leave it. Cause I thing it is not batter for health so please tell me how to forget it.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

Continuing smoking in spite of knowing its harms and side effects is a sign of nicotine dependence. You need a thorough evaluation of the withdrawal symptoms that you get on decreasing or stopping smoking. According to that we can plan a deaddiction program for you.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

If people in office sledge you and all the time talk about you and mentally torture you what should you Do.

You need to find a solution if there is a torture which is a Zero tolerance, you have to assertively bring it to notice and sort it out. If this not real you have to change your attitude and correct your errors and look at the right perspective in your own interest. If it is beyond reasoning you have to take medicines.

Your loss is understandable. However you feelings of depressed have stayed too long to recover. If you have been feeling sad and depressed for so long with an apparent decrease n your over all functioning there is practically no doubt that you have a depressive disorder that needs treatment.

Hey doc, this question is regarding my 42 years old mother. Her behavior is changing rapidly. She becomes angry and emotional at small issues and starts shouting. What can we do on our side?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Easy irritability, anger outbursts and emotional lability at age of 42 years could be due to agitated depression and peri menopausal hormonal changes in women. It is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist for these problems, preferably to rule lout other causes also.

Dear sir/madam, I am 26y/male During the morning time after waking up & during the relaxed conditions & during tension I feel too much stammering/stuttering in speech. At same time when I am wid my very closed ones & normal active time I don't get any stammering. Please suggest me a cure for this problem.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

My grandmother has trouble walking, but she refuses to get a walker or cane. I worry about her. How can I convince her to get some sort of walking aid?

Dear, your grandmother knows everything. Leave it to her. If she is willing to manage herself without walking aid, so be it. Motivate her about her attitude. Motivation gives them self confidence. Take care.

My wife is 50 years old lady. He shows every time in tense and think something every time. For that she is suffering for 4-5 months. What kind of treatment she required?

50 is an age where the body really starts slowing down. Your wife might be going through lot of hormonal changes. She might be noticing that her body is aging faster now. This might be difficult for her to accept. She needs to slow down as far as her household chores are concerned. People at home need to help her. Also talk to her and encourage her to share her feelings, her worries etc. Just listening to her will make her feel better. Encourage her to go for a general routine medical check up as well.

My friend regularly has an habit of alcohol consumption. His age is 25. If he does not drinks for a day his body starts shivering. He can't wait at that moment runs to the shop and takes alcohol. Then his body comes to normal stage. Can't we change him?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course not: he needs to want to change first. He is an addict and the shivering he is experiencing is the withdrawal symptoms because his body is craving the substance. So, ideally he must want to stop this habit. Otherwise it will become a futile exercise. If this habit has become too much as we can see, then you will need to admit him into a center for rehabilitation. He will need to be there for at least 6 months and they will do detoxification and treatment for the addictive nature followed by extensive counseling. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. 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 take a 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. The 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. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.

Hello, You are lacking the focus and concentration. The best way of increasing the concentration is through exercises (sp. yoga and meditation) which increases your blood circulation, boosts up oxygen in each and every tissue of the body. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Bacopa Monierri Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Take them for 20 days. Revert me back.

Dear, I don't see the risk of amnesia in you at this age. Have you met with any accident or trauma? are you diagnosed with anxiety disorder or depression? busy and anxious people do forget many things, that does not mean they have amnesia. Therefore, usually, busy people keep everything in writing or appoint a personal assistant to help them out. Stress is also another factor behind forgetting. People also forget things which they feel unimportant. Therefore, I think, you do not have anything to worry. Still, if you insist, I can run a series of memory related tests to assess your memory. First screening test will be through mobile. Let me know if you are willing. Take care.

Tension, forgetfulness and decreased concentration can be a symptom of depression or anxiety. Consult a psychiatrist for effective treatment. Eat well, sleep on time, maintain a regular day structure, meditation, breathing exercises, focus on the task, rehearse all these will improve your memory and concentration and reduce stress.

Sir My mom is suffering from schizophrenia past 20 years she talk to herself and not talking sleep at night and very moody and frustrated.

D.P.M, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Supriya, I can understand your worries regarding your mother's illness. Schizophrenia is a chronic illness however with medication it is possible to keep the symptoms under control and lead a normal life. It is essential you bring your mother for a consultation so that appropriate medication can be started for her, or her medication adjusted if she isn't responding to the current one.
