Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

I am having Good amount of anxiety or Ocd. Doctor,I wamt to ask that if I practise pranayama or anulom vinolom on a regular basis can it bring my ocd to a nominal level or should I go to a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Pranayama, Anulom vinolom, meditation, exercise are all beneficial to good physical and mental health. However, they are NOT treatments by themselves. At best they can be considered as adjuvants, they help to improve the patient's health and thus their condition. If you are indeed suffering from OCD, it is vital that you seek professional help by consulting a psychiatrist. With the right medication and counseling you will see relief in your symptoms.

Relationships are best maintained with good communication, and you have hit the nail on the head, so to say. You are well qualified and obviously know how and what to communicate. So is it possible that you may be afraid of people and then stutter and hesitate to talk to them? it usually comes from an inferiority complex and a fear of people. Would you know where this came from in your developmental years? it would help to speak to your parents and see if they remember anything that might have contributed to this development. Equipped with that information please meet with a counselor to help you sort out this fear. In the meantime you could do several other things to improve your communication. Do attend a conversations skills class, public speaking course, personality development course, elocution class and do a lot of reading, which will endow you, both with knowledge and vocabulary that will be very useful to your communication skills. You must make a conscious effort to meet with people and you can start slowly with one friend and through his help meet more of his friends and slowly you will become familiar with them and not fear them so much. There are social clubs, functions, meetings, conferences, workshops, seminars, toastmasters club etc. Which are very good avenues to meet other people who are all interested in some kind of topical concerns and they will feel less intimidating. To build good self-image, self-confidence, and self-esteem do regular exercise in a gym, practice spirituality, get proper sleep, educate yourself more, and eat a proper diet. Pay close attention to the way you dress, speak, conduct yourself in social settings, and relate to other people.

I can't sleep because I still remember her. Even little things somewhere find associations with her. She cheated on me with her boss while I was busy making a life to be together with her. I'm broken completely mentally. I cry almost everyday. I can't get her out of my head. I have tried forgetting her but it just does not happen at all. I left my job in another country to be with her in India. And this is what she did to me. I've abused her after I found out, but even that isn't liberating enough. I'm broken down completely. Help me get out of this. I am only 26 and a huge career ahead of me. I need to take care of my parents too. I can't get her feelings get in my way. I've tried a lot. Help me forget her. Please I beg you.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Love is deeper and more emotional than any other relationship. That is why forgetting is trouble. Recent research shows trying to forget worsens your agony. Therefore don't try to forget. Keep those memories. Let those memories come. Learn to enjoy them. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

Ok as you like it, please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. As regards the concentration you are sure to have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it; together with depression I can imagine your problems. 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, 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 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.

My only son (9 Yr) is now a student of Class IV in a School at semi-urban area with his mother along with one of my relatives family (4 members) separately. I am working in other place away from them and attending week end / holidays. My wife is looking after every thing. She is efficient, accommodative, and is teaching child. At home have no TV connection. Child is (i) very arrogant and is not intending to study; (ii) eating too much, health is good; (iii) talkative other than study matter; (iv) mobile, computer may be handled quickly and can practice any play without any target; (v) has ability to grasp any songs/music; (vi) during study period he can grow different reasons to away from the class. Because of him my family peace is going away from home. My wife is becoming unrest for him. School is not far away, five minutes by walk.

Seems like he is a highly intelligent child but not in the academic sense and is showing signs of emotional disturbances. He has probably entered puberty at an early age. The other thing is whether he has had any developmental problems earlier that are beginning to surface looking for a resolution. These could also have an impact on these observations of yours. Kindly meet with the school counselor, and if they do not have one, then perhaps a child counselor will suffice. A change of house around the age of 9 has also been reported to disturb some kids. Is he allowed to play organized games either at school or at home? Exercise and games will exhaust the excess energy that may help him calm down for school pursuits. I feel that a tutor may be useful to help him settle with his studies. Keep in touch with his teachers to know what their feedback is and work with them as to how to help him. No TV may be a problem for him. Have the TV but discipline him around it. Your absence, especially at his age, is probably affecting some of his rebelliousness. Sometimes too much parental strictness only invites rebelliousness at this age. Do not allow excess eating: not only is that a health hazard but it is also making him compensate by oral gratification and the obesity may become difficult for him to lead an active life. Now the brief time that you come over on the weekends cannot be all spent in reprimanding him either, but besides that, do spend quality time with him as much as you can. Your wife cannot be both father and mother, at the same time.

I'm a heavy drinker since 3-4 and I want to take a firm decision to quit it permanently. I don't have family members or friends to help me with it. I myself want to be strong enough to quit it, and don't want to get urged for drinking and do many things in life. Its only that I have had faced few circumstances in life which lead me to this habit, and I couldn't control my mind from having alcohol. I have taken a first step by this decision to quit, and need advice for further details.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Remove all reminders of alcohol from home such as empty bottles, ashtray etc. Try to avoid the place from where you used to purchase alcohol. Take a different route. Have a readymade answer if someone offers a drink. Do not fall into the trap of thinking I shall drink only 1 peg and no more. Do not try to challenge yourself or test your will power by being at a place where alcohol is being served and you try to resist. Confidence is good, over confidence is not. Do not hesitate to take medicines and therapy if you are unable to quit on your own. Let your friends know that you have quit. Announce it to others so that you now have a greater responsibility. If you do drink by mistake on a particular day, do not think all is lost and go back to old ways. Its okay and start afresh the next day. A lapse and relapse are not the same.

I smoke every day n I m addicted to it. I m smoking from the age of 16 now I m 18 what should I do I feel very bad from inside while smoking cigerate.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The discomfort you are feeling inside is very good because it can trouble you enough to help quitting. Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 7000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself 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 you have quit smoking tobacco. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Hi there ~ you are probably suffering from viral infection in which case headache and stomachache can last for 2 days to a week. If you are taking good rest, eating regular healthy diet and hydrating yourself with enough water you should probably get better soon. I hope you visit with a psychiatrist as soon as possible even if you are not doing well with the above suggestions. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day.

Memory fades clinically only due to amnesia. Amnesia, for you to be tested with the help of a neurologist. Another reason for momentary memory loss or problem in semantic memory is due to anxiety and allied problems. You need to ascertain this through some memory tests. You can post a direct private question to me on this regard. I am happy to answer your query. God bless you.
