Dosage is daily one capsule 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.

Many times when the sleep is disturbed it leads to many problems in the body and the mind. In today’s fast moving world sleep is disturbed by our surroundings and our activities. Here are some simple steps to improve your sleep. 1. Keep a fixed time to wake up every morning regardless of what time you go to sleep. 2. Use your bed/mattress only for sleeping. Better don’t use it for watching TV/browsing the net/chatting on phone. In case you haven’t noticed separate furniture are available for those activities.! 3. Avoid taking tea/coffee after 5 pm. No question of smoking or alcohol – these are sure fire ways to have a disturbed sleep. 4. If you don’t fall asleep within 20 minutes of going to bed, walk out of the bed to a different room. Engage in some simple activity like reading a pleasant book/listening to some melody. 5. Don’t keep staring at the watch/clock while trying to fall asleep. 6. Try to unwind with a warm bath and gentle music before going to bed. Grandma would say drink a cup of milk. Listen to her.! 7. Sleep in a place which is not noisy/bright – pretty obvious isn’t it.?! Yet we ignore it too often. 8. Consult a psychiatrist for help if above methods fail. Please don’t self-medicate. We are here to help.!! - Dr.Parthasarathy,MBBS,MD.(JIPMER), Psychiatrist OMR Chennai ( Thoraipakkam)

My son is 14 years old studying In viii class. He is studying for the sake of doing it but has little interest in it. His counsellor has lessen his burden by reducing his syllabus. Though he has started scoring quiet good but he doesn't make the effort to study himself. Only noting down work from other books & copies is his effort. But he never tries to read newspaper, his academic text books etc. He doesn't feel the importance of academics. We have consulted psychologist & child counsellor. He is very good child. Does all the outdoor activities very enthusiastically. A good player good team organizer, very friendly. Very handsome. But very slow in academics. I am very worried. please advice.

Not every one is good in academics. Your son may have some other qualities. Please try to focus on his strengths. Once you understand this skills and passion then help him to pursue this. If he is a very good child, then first thing is he will be a good human being. That will be a huge achievement. Also he will do well in whatever field he choses. He might become a good Sports person, Good Manager, may be good Actor or may be he would be happy in Travel or Hospitalilty business etc. Finally what matters is, he should be happy for the rest of his life and he should be able to enjoy whatever work/job he takes up. After he passes 10th std exam, get his "Career Counselling" done so that you will be able to help him in choosing his career. Do not worry too much about academics. He is in 7th class now, may be after 2 yrs he will become more matured and serious. Guide him, show him various career options. Please have open communication with him. All the best.

Exercise will definitely help removing your laziness and improve immunity. Have small frequent meals or eats. High protein, high calorie diet if you r not over weight. When feel lazy read subject or topic you love more. You can try walk and read, vitamin supplements.

I am a 34 yrs old housewife. Have 2 daughters - 11 yrs and 1 yr old. I am in continuous pressure for not having a son. This tension is multiplied by my mother in law who wants a grand son desperately. My husband is very much supportive but I am unable to control my thoughts and keep on thinking about it. It has led me to a depression like situation. I want to work as I am well qualified but due to small baby, cant go out. Our is a nuclear family. Sitting at home, managing 2 children and continuously thinking about these things has made my life depressing. Please suggest some solution.

This is sad, that your mil still wishes for a son in this day and age. Are you also wishing to have a son? what will you lose if you don't have one. These days there are many options like adoption, ivf, surrogacy to get over this problem. Yet this will be your responsibility to take care of another child. Your mil wouldn't be around after some years. You need to be assertive about your dreams. If your husband is with you, then what is the problem in telling your mil unless there are chances of some loss of prestige and respect in family or financial gain. You need to weigh your priorities and decide the pros and cons of each option and see which works for you in the long run with least damage. Counselling helps in taking such tough decisions of life and connect with yourself and your needs and wants and strike a balance with others expectations. Click on private chat to connect with me.

Hi Actually I got into a physical fight with my husband and its quiet often we fight. And during one of those angered moment I had scrached my husband with my nails and he even bleeded and in the past four five months I have been doing the same, but he didnt take tetanus vaccination. Do you think its a dangerous sitiation and how can we rectify it? because my husband says the vaccination should be taken within 24hours and the bad effects would come after 10 years! I am really worried as he had been wounded by my nails many times in the past few months, but we didn't gave him any vaccination and its over 2 months. Please help!

I think rather than worrying about tetanus you need to be worrying more about your fights and how to control them so that these things will not happen. Physical fights in a relationship indicate extreme frustration and intolerance. You need to take psychological help and may be couple can see a counsellor to address the problem.

You need to be investigated for your turns. Since you are able to recall that the episodes of turns happen, it is less likely to be a genuine fit. However you try to take Clonazepam 0.5mg tds sos if you get turn. Amd get an EEG done and get supportive Psychotherapy. Also write full history and you can discuss with me through Lybrate

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

The demands of caregiving can be overwhelming, especially if you feel you have little control over the situation or you’re in over your head. If the stress of caregiving is left unchecked, it can take a toll on your health, relationships, and state of mind—eventually leading to burnout.  *Tips for getting the caregiving help you need: 1. Speak up.  Don’t expect friends and family members to automatically know what you need or how you’re feeling. Be up front about what’s going on with you and the person you’re caring for. If you have concerns or thoughts about how to improve the situation, express them—even if you’re unsure how they’ll be received.  2. Spread the responsibility.  Try to get as many family members involved as possible. Even someone who lives far away can help. You may also want to divide up caregiving tasks. One person can take care of medical responsibilities, another with finances and bills, and another with groceries 3. Say “yes” when someone offers assistance. Don’t be shy about accepting help. Let them feel good about supporting you. It’s smart to have a list ready of small tasks that others could easily take care of, such as picking up groceries or driving your loved one to an appointment. *Give yourself a break: 1. Set aside a minimum of 30 minutes every day for yourself.  Do whatever you enjoy, whether it’s reading, working in the garden, tinkering in your workshop, knitting, playing with the dogs, or watching the game. 2. Find ways to pamper yourself.  Small luxuries can go a long way in relieving stress and boosting your spirits. Take a long warm bath. Buy fresh flowers for the house. Or whatever makes you feel special. 3. Make yourself laugh.  Laughter is an excellent antidote to stress—and a little goes a long way. Read a funny book, watch a comedy (avoid watching emotional serials or movies), or call a friend who makes you laugh. And whenever you can, try to find the humor in everyday situations 4. Visit with friends and share your feelings. The simple act of expressing what you’re going through can be very cathartic. If it’s difficult to leave the house, invite friends over to visit with you over coffee, tea, or dinner. It’s important that you interact with others. Sharing your feelings won’t make you a burden to others. In fact, most friends will be flattered that you trust them enough to confide in them, and it will only strengthen your bond. Mostof the people have to go through this. Have patience and faith. Nothing lasts forever. This too shall pass. Pray. Prayer gives lot of strength. Take care.
