concentration never comes accidentally. concentration comes based on interest on our subjects. if you dont have interest on particular aspects. in that case concentration will not come. first develop interest on the subjects then automatically concentration comes. meditation and yoga helpful to develop concentration. sex thoughts comes in this stage it is common factor. dont give much priority for that. just think and leave it. do not take seriously to over about it. be make good plan on studies. slowly solve in a systematic manner. then you develop concentration. be plan on each and every aspect. be sociable and be friendly with others.be happy all the ime ok all the best.

Are you a 'What-If' person? Kill anxiety in 4 easy ways

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
Are you a 'What-If' person? Kill anxiety in 4 easy ways
Are you a 'What-If' person? Kill anxiety in 4 easy ways

Thinking about dangers and risks is a normal phenomenon, it helps us to stay alert and to become a good problem solver. It’s only when worrying gets out of a person’s control, it turns into a problem. If a person is constantly preoccupied with “what-if " and keeps imagining worst-case scenarios, worry actually turns into the cause for high pulse rate, insomnia, poor mental and physical health.

Here are 4 simple steps to cope with anxiety and worry.

1. Breathing technique: The first thing to do when you get anxious is to take deep breath. Deep breathing is a powerful anxiety-reducing technique because it activates the body’s relaxation response. Try slowly inhaling to a count of 5, filling your belly first and then your chest, gently holding your breath to a count of 5, and slowly exhaling to a count of 5 and repeat several times.

2. Accept that you’re anxious: Remember anxiety is just a feeling, like any other feeling, by reminding yourself that anxiety is simply an emotional reaction, you can start to accept it. Acceptance is critical because trying to eliminate anxiety often worsens it. But accepting your anxiety doesn’t mean liking it or resigning yourself to a miserable existence. It just means you would benefit by accepting reality as it is – and in that moment, reality means 'anxiety' you are feeling.

3. Question your worries. When people are anxious, most of the time their brains start coming up with all sorts of unrealistic ideas, which most likely will never occur. To avoid unnecessary worry, one should ask himself / herself a few questions like:
- Is there a reason to believe something is wrong?
- What evidence is there that something is wrong?
- If the worst possible outcome happens, what would be so bad about that?
- What are the options I can use to handle the situation at hand?


4. Focus on right now: When people are anxious, they are usually obsessing about something that might occur in the future. It is important that when a person becomes anxious, he/she takes a deep breath and pay attention to what’s happening right now, around them. Even if something serious is happening, focusing on the present moment will improve your ability to manage the situation.

My husband gets angry a lot. He can't control it then later he feels sorry about it. While getting angry, he bites his lips, hurts himself, shouts a lot. What to do to control his anger?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He should not control his anger: he needs to control his actions when he angry. None of the feelings are to be controlled. They are to be expressed appropriately and given total catharsis. If not, it will find an organ in the body and bring about its malfunction to total dysfunction. Take him to a counselor and let him learn about anger management and about emotions. If he is not able to explain the anger or its provocation, then there could be childhood influences that have to looked into. When he turns his anger inwards, he will tend to hurt himself. Over a period of time this could lead to worse outcomes and may also become difficult to handle.

I am not able to live without smoking. What should I do!

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
It only feels like so. But if you make up your mind and follow some strategies, you will be able to give it up for good. You have certainly made a good decision and you can go about it in the following manner. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also 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 also 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. 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. 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time. If you continue with these coronary spasms you are asking for huge trouble.

Such problems are very common in marriage. First of all, stop stressing upon the fact that nothing is working out. The more you stress on this, the more stress you will feel. Be loving and gentle, despite your circumstances. Make your wife feel that you understand her and expect the same from her. Listen to her more than giving solutions to problems. The more she feels you understand her, more she will be willing to listen to you. Talk to her about her worries and fears and tell her that you both are together in good or bad and she is not alone. Try these things. Still if you feel its not working, you can take help of marriage counsellors. Good luck.

I am 34 year old male from India. I'm married and have a 4 year old daughter. I have been under treatment for depression, social phobia, and anxiety disorder for about 6 years. I always feel tired and sleepy while my colleagues are always active. I am taking Prothiaden 75 mg once in a day for two weeks now, as my doctor suggested me. Can you tell me why I always feel tired and sleepy? Is this due to the depression? What can I do to feel energetic every day. Also i'm very less talkative. Is this any kind of mental problem? My father is also less talkative. When he talks he does not talk clearly. Only murmurs. I think he too suffers from depression as he always like to sleep and do not want to do anything. He has partial blindness also.

You should report these symptoms to your doctor. Depression does cause this feeling of sleepiness and less energy. However, it is more appropriate to call it lethargy, which is a feeling of inertia and fatigue. Depending as to when you are feeling depressed, you may consider advancing the evening dosage to an earlier time. Also, if the dosage is too strong, the doctor may revise the medication. I am also certain that you are not going for therapy in tandem with the medication. This is very important for better results. So meet with a counselor and work out some time in intense therapy. It also looks like that this is a possible genetic condition. Exercise is very good for you to help produce natural antidepressants.

You can overcome by practising meditaion and yoga .Resting at night plays an important role in regulating your daily health and your level of energy throughout a day. Also, not only the quantity but the quality of sleep is also important for a healthy lifestyle. Bedtime habits do play a vital role in shaping up your lifestyle and personality as a whole. Here are many lifestyle habits that can help you to get sound sleep. 1. Make regular and a fixed sleep pattern: Going to sleep and waking up the same time every day helps to maintain an equilibrium in the sleep-wake cycle called diurnal rhythm. If this balance is maintained, then your body will be accustomed to this pattern and as a result, you will feel less tired and fresh throughout the day 2. Maintain a definite dietary regulation: You should also maintain a proper diet plan and observe the consequences/effects of the foods that you are eating and the fluids that you are drinking on your sleep pattern. Taking a good and properly nutritious diet on a daily basis will help you to stay healthy and help your natural sleep-wake cycle. 3. Ensure that your room has mild or dim lighting or darkness if you prefer: The level of light also matters at the time of your sleep. You should definitely make sure that there is a very minimal level of light or darkness around you when you try to sleep. This should be done because the lesser is the light, the more comfortable you are while sleeping. Additionally, the sleep that you will get in a dark room will also be sound and undistorted as it helps keep all the sensory organs calm. 4). Do some relaxing activities before bedtime: Depending on your choice, you should follow simple techniques of relaxation in order to calm down the brain before sleep. Like mediation, Yoga or- deep breathing exercise, muscle relaxing activity, visualizing a peaceful setting/ scenario like a calm garden or beach or mountain area. These activities are just guidelines and you can do anything that helps you to get a relaxing mood and sleep. 5). Avoid daytime naps if you can , But Having short naps of less than one hour is absolutely okay if you are excessively tired during the day or you did not have a sound sleep the previous night. But, if you are consistently having long naps during the day then you are bound to have sleep issues during the night. So it is advisable to sleep early and wake up early for a healthy schedule. 6) Regular exercise: Exercising regularly helps to improve the overall quality of sleep by making you tired at night and sending you to bed more efficiently. Light to mild exercises also helps cure sleep disorders like insomnia.

Dear Lybrate user. You are not a psycho for sure. This is habitual. There is nothing wrong about it. This is just because you carry the "teaching" to your home. You should shrug "teaching" off at the school itself. I suggest an hour of outdoor games to shrug off "teaching" after coming back from your school. Within a week your problem will be solved. Take care.

Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise.

I have a dry cough due to smoking. Im trying to stop smoking but now helpless. My cough is from almost 15days im really worry but cant do anything and cant even tell anyone cos people can only suggest to stop smoking. *worried*

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course you need to stop smoking. Signs like these are an early warning that you are smoking too much. If you wait for a full-fledged attack of some disease, then you are like most addicts who need to 'Hit Rock Bottom', that it, to reach the worst condition for you to need to stop. Then you are on a reactive mode: heed the warning and act on it fast. Everyone who wishes you well will tell you to quit! Smoking directly attacks the respiratory apparatus. You can ill-afford to continue smoking unless you want to kill yourself early and in a most miserable way! You must seriously take a call and quit smoking now. Here’s how you can go about it: The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. Tobacco tar smears the lung surface and causes big patches over time to become dysfunctional. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also 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.

Integrated Medicine Specialist, Delhi
Hi, My sympathies for you loss, however, I do not write to just offer placating words of comfort that will make you feel good for a short time and then leave you feeling incomplete again. What you probably might not be aware of is that there is considerable evidence that some trauma is good for long term growth. The predicament you find yourself in is no doubt distressing and likely makes you feel that you are lacking in something and are not' whole' or complete. Any life event that causes distress because of a perceived loss or separation from a loved one causes primarily two things - it makes you want to recover or somehow regain what you have lost and it disrupts your sense of identity. All of us rely on others to make our lives meaningful, happy and complete. We want to feel desired and loved and cherished. But that doesn' t always happen. Remember, that right at this moment you ARE complete. You have everything that you need to lead a purposeful and meaningful life. This doesn' t mean that you will not have obstacles or disappointments in your way. What it means is that you can choose to proactively cope with and look beyond your loss or predicament. You could begin by taking the following steps: - When memories, sorrow and distressing thoughts arise, don' t judge yourself or others. Try not to analyze or get too drawn into your thoughts. Observe them without participating in them. - If necessary, find a close friend or family member to talk to. Someone you can open yourself to without fear of being judged. - Cope by asking yourself" what can I do to make the situation better" Try and come up with ways to structure your day with activities that you enjoy, stay engaged with some routine or work or study. See if you can spend some time exercising or reading. - Don' t be too harsh on yourself. If you find yourself musing and anguishing over what you have lost, gently remind yourself that you cannot undo the past, and that some distress is a normal part of life. Remember to affirm that you have the capability to overcome difficult circumstances. - Spend some time considering that there are so many millions in this world who have had devastating losses and heartbreak. Even though you are in pain, you still probably have much to be grateful for like a family perhaps, or good music to listen to, or something as basic as food and shelter! A sense of gratitude helps overcome the feeling of being a victim and pushes you to look for solutions. - Take small steps. Be proud of yourself if you accomplish something, even if it is just reading what is written here. -If you like to read, read inspirational material. Spend time taking walks if possible, and do remember to get a good nights sleep, and eat well. I wish you well and hope that in time, you will come to terms with your loss and find a sense of balance!

I would suggest you to first consult a psychologist. Regular counselling therapy will help you better manage your emotions. You will also be able to learn to respond in a more mature and positive way to situations which currently triggering anger and sadness. If your psychologist feels that you need to go on medication then she will send you to psychiatrist. Even if you need to start medicine continue your sessions with psychologist. This will help you reduce and eventually stop medicines. Hope this helps wishing you very best.
