tips to improve concentration

क्या आपका बच्चा हमेशा विचलित होता है और अपने होमवर्क पर ध्यान केंद्रित नहीं कर रहा है? क्या आपके लिए अपने बच्चे को केवल २०-३० मिनट के लिए बैठाना और पढ़ाना मुश्किल है? यह समझने के लिए पढ़ें कि बच्चों में एकाग्रता की समस्याएं क्या हैं और जानें कि एकाग्रता बढ़ाने के टिप्स और खाद्य पदार्थ क्या हैं?

बच्चों का  ध्यान केंद्रित करना आसान नहीं है, और कई माता-पिता को वास्तव में कठिन संघर्ष करना पड़ता है। माता-पिता के लिए अक्सर यह एक चुनौती होती है कि वे अपने बच्चे को एक जगह बिठाएं, उन्हें सिखाएं कि कैसे अपनी पढ़ाई पर ध्यान केंद्रित करें और बिना ज्यादा विचलित हुए इसे खत्म करें। यह माता-पिता को चिंतित करता है और कुछ माता-पिता भी यह सोचने लग सकते हैं कि उनके बच्चों में कुछ गड़बड़ है। लेकिन निश्चिंत रहें, बच्चों में एकाग्रता की समस्या बहुत आम है।

न केवल स्कूल से संबंधित प्रतियोगिताएं , बल्कि विभिन्न प्रकार की अतिरिक्त प्रतियोगिताओं जैसे स्पेल बी, ओलंपियाड, क्विज़ आदि में बढ़ती प्रतिस्पर्धा के साथ, माता-पिता और बच्चों पर दबाव बढ़ रहा है और इस सब के लिए बच्चे में तेज स्मृति और एकाग्रता शक्ति की आवश्यकता होती है। बच्चों में एकाग्रता बढ़ने के टिप्स आपि मदद कर सकते हैं.

बच्चों में खराब एकाग्रता के लक्षण:

यदि आपके बच्चे को किसी चीज़ पर बहुत देर तक ध्यान केंद्रित करने में कठिनाई होती है, तो वह कम एकाग्रता या एकाग्रता की समस्या से पीड़ित हो सकता है। ध्यान की यह कमी उसकी पढ़ाई और अन्य गतिविधियों में भी देखी जा सकती है। आइए बच्चों में खराब एकाग्रता के लक्षणों को समझते हैं:

  • आसानी से भटकना
  • रुचि में कमी
  • स्थिर बैठने और सोचने में असमर्थता
  • निर्देशों का पालन करने में असमर्थता
  • चीजों को आसानी से खो देता है
  • ज्यादातर समय मूडी, चिड़चिड़े और कर्कश
  • अति सक्रिय
  • बेचैन
  • अपनी चीजों को व्यवस्थित करने में असमर्थता

बच्चों में कम एकाग्रता का क्या कारण है?

बहुत सारे विकर्षण:

बच्चे स्वाभाविक रूप से जिज्ञासु होते हैं और उनका दिमाग हमेशा भटकता रहता है। टीवी, वीडियो गेम, मोबाइल फोन आदि उनके लिए आसान ध्यान भटकाने का काम करते हैं। स्टडी टाइम, टीवी टाइम, प्ले टाइम के लिए एक शेड्यूल या टाइम टेबल बनाएं और सुनिश्चित करें कि वे इसका नियमित रूप से पालन करते हैं। धीरे-धीरे आपका बच्चा समझ जाएगा कि पढ़ाई के दौरान उसे सिर्फ पढ़ाई पर ध्यान देने की जरूरत है और बाकी काम भी उसे करने को मिल जाएंगे।

चुनौतीपूर्ण कार्य:

कभी-कभी बच्चों को उन्हें दिया गया प्रश्न या कार्य बहुत कठिन या चुनौतीपूर्ण लग सकता है। ऐसे मामलों में, वे पूरी तरह से ध्यान केंद्रित करने में सक्षम नहीं हो सकते हैं और रुचि भी खो देंगे। बड़े कार्य को छोटे और सरल कार्यों में तोड़ना जो आपके बच्चे के लिए उपयुक्त उम्र के हों और आपके बच्चे को हर एक कार्य को पूरा करने के लिए प्रेरित करें।

नींद की कमी:

अध्ययनों से पता चला है कि नियमित रूप से पर्याप्त मात्रा में नींद लेने वाले बच्चों ने एकाग्रता, ध्यान, व्यवहार, सीखने, स्मृति और सबसे महत्वपूर्ण मानसिक और शारीरिक स्वास्थ्य में सुधार किया है। बच्चे के दिमाग का ज्यादातर विकास नींद के दौरान होता है। बच्चों के मस्तिष्क के समुचित विकास के लिए हर रात कम से कम आठ से बारह घंटे की नींद बहुत जरूरी है। (मस्तिष्क के विकास के लिए सोना क्यों ज़रूरी है?) सुनिश्चित करें कि आपके बच्चे को पर्याप्त नींद मिले और यह भी कोशिश करें कि बहुत देर तक जागकर उनकी दिनचर्या में खलल न पड़े।

माता-पिता का  ध्यान आकर्षित करना :

कभी-कभी बच्चे अपने माता-पिता का ध्यान आकर्षित करने के लिए ठीक से अपना काम नहीं करते हैं और ध्यान नहीं लगाते  हैं। अपने बच्चे के साथ प्रतिदिन कुछ गुणवत्तापूर्ण समय बिताएं और उन्हें अधिक सुरक्षित और प्यार महसूस करने में मदद करें।

अल्प खुराक:

नाश्ता न करना और अनुचित पोषण आपके बच्चे की एकाग्रता शक्ति को भी प्रभावित कर सकता है। अपने बच्चे को हर दिन एक संतुलित आहार देकर उसकी मदद करें और सुनिश्चित करें कि आपका बच्चा कोई भी भोजन, विशेष रूप से नाश्ता नहीं छोड़ता है। (संतुलित आहार इतना महत्वपूर्ण क्यों है?)

भावनात्मक उपद्रव:

यदि घर में माता-पिता के झगड़े, तलाक या किसी प्रियजन की मृत्यु जैसी किसी भी तरह की अशांति है, तो बच्चा भावनात्मक रूप से परेशान हो सकता है और इससे न केवल उसकी एकाग्रता बल्कि समग्र प्रदर्शन भी प्रभावित होगा। अपने बच्चे को घर की परेशानियों से दूर रखें और इस परेशानी की घड़ी में उन्हें अधिक भावनात्मक सहारा दें।

शारीरिक गतिविधि में कमी :

कम शारीरिक गतिविधि या शारीरिक व्यायाम की कमी आपके बच्चे को आलसी और सुस्त बना सकती है जिससे उसकी एकाग्रता पर नकारात्मक प्रभाव पड़ता है। अपने बच्चे को साइकिल चलाने, दौड़ने, बाहरी गतिविधियों और खेलों के लिए बाहर ले जाएं।

प्रेरणा या रुचि की कमी:

किसी विशेष विषय या गतिविधि में रुचि या प्रेरणा की कमी भी बच्चों में खराब एकाग्रता का कारण बनती है। उन्नत बच्चे या बच्चे जिनका औसत  स्तर से अधिक IQ है, रुचि या प्रेरणा की कमी के कारण अधिक पीड़ित होते हैं। अपने बच्चे को हर छोटी उपलब्धि के लिए प्रेरित और प्रोत्साहित करें।

अव्यवस्थित कार्यक्षेत्र:

अव्यवस्थित कार्यक्षेत्र या अव्यवस्थित नोटबुक होने से जो पढ़ाया जा रहा है उस पर ध्यान केंद्रित करने के बजाय चीजों की तलाश में अधिक समय व्यतीत करना पड़ सकता है। अपने बच्चे को संगठित होना सिखाएं और उन्हें अव्यवस्था मुक्त रहने में मदद करें।

सीखने में समस्याएं:

कुछ मामलों में, एडीएचडी, डिस्लेक्सिया या एडीडी जैसी सीखने की कठिनाइयां बच्चों में कम या उचित एकाग्रता के लिए जिम्मेदार हो सकती हैं। आप ऐसे मामलों में उचित निदान और मार्गदर्शन के लिए किसी पेशेवर से परामर्श करके मदद कर सकते हैं। 

बच्चों में एकाग्रता बढ़ाने के टिप्स:

मस्तिष्क व्यायाम: बच्चों में एकाग्रता बढ़ाने के टिप्स में मस्तिष्क व्यायाम बहोत ज़रूरी है| विभिन्न प्रकार की पहेलियों को हल करना या स्मृति खेल खेलना, सुडोकू, शतरंज बच्चों में एकाग्रता में सुधार करने में मदद कर सकता है।

मेडिटेशन: मेडिटेशन और माइंडफुलनेस प्रैक्टिस बेहतर एकाग्रता में मदद कर सकते हैं। अध्ययनों से पता चलता है कि ध्यान, माइंडफुलनेस ट्रेनिंग, योग और गहरी सांस लेने से बच्चों को ध्यान, याददाश्त, फोकस और अन्य संज्ञानात्मक क्षमताओं को बढ़ाने में मदद मिल सकती है। इसलिए, यह एकाग्रता में सुधार करने के सर्वोत्तम सुझावों में से एक है।

संगीत सुनना: एकाग्रता बढ़ाने के टिप्स में संगीत सुनना बहोत ज़रूरी है | एकाग्रता में सुधार के लिए कुछ अध्ययन संगीत सुनने के लाभों का समर्थन करते हैं। काम या पढ़ाई के दौरान संगीत चालू करने से एकाग्रता में सुधार करने में मदद मिल सकती है। विशेषज्ञ आमतौर पर इस बात से सहमत होते हैं कि शास्त्रीय संगीत या प्रकृति की आवाज़ फोकस बढ़ाने में मदद करने के लिए अच्छे विकल्प हैं।

प्रकृति में समय बिताएं: बच्चों में एकाग्रता बढ़ाने के लिए एक और उपाय प्रकृति में समय बिताना है। शोध से पता चलता है कि प्राकृतिक वातावरण मस्तिष्क के विकास को लाभ पहुंचा सकता है और बच्चों में एकाग्रता शक्ति में भी सुधार कर सकता है। यहां तक ​​​​कि पार्क में 20 मिनट की पैदल दूरी शहरी सेटिंग में समान लंबाई की पैदल दूरी से अधिक बच्चों में एकाग्रता में सुधार करने में मदद कर सकती है।

बच्चों में एकाग्रता और याददाश्त बढ़ाने के लिए खाद्य पदार्थ:

ओमेगा -3 फैटी एसिड:

अनुसंधान ने बचपन में ओमेगा 3 फैटी एसिड और मस्तिष्क के विकास के बीच एक कड़ी स्थापित की है। इन स्वस्थ वसा में अद्भुत मस्तिष्क शक्ति होती है और स्मृति और ध्यान अवधि को बढ़ाने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाते हैं। मछली और अखरोट ओमेगा 3 का बहुत अच्छा स्रोत हैं और इसलिए एकाग्रता और याददाश्त में सुधार के लिए सबसे अच्छे खाद्य पदार्थों में से एक हैं। (ओमेगा 3 आपके बच्चों के लिए क्यों महत्वपूर्ण है?)

ब्लू बैरीज़:

ब्लूबेरी में एंथोसायनिन होता है, जो पौधों के यौगिकों का एक समूह है जिसमें विरोधी भड़काऊ और एंटीऑक्सिडेंट प्रभाव होते हैं। एंटीऑक्सिडेंट ऑक्सीडेटिव तनाव और सूजन दोनों के खिलाफ कार्य करते हैं और इस प्रकार मस्तिष्क की उम्र बढ़ने और न्यूरोडीजेनेरेटिव रोगों को रोकने में मदद कर सकते हैं। (एंटीऑक्सीडेंट क्यों?)

हरे पत्ते वाली सब्जियां:

हरी सब्जियां दिमाग का पसंदीदा भोजन है। पालक, पत्तागोभी, पुदीना और केले जैसी सब्जियां मस्तिष्क के स्वास्थ्य में योगदान करती हैं क्योंकि वे विटामिन बी, आयरन और एंटीऑक्सिडेंट से भरपूर होती हैं जो नई कोशिकाओं के विकास में मदद करती हैं और तेज सोच में सहायता करती हैं। चूंकि पालक में विटामिन ए, बी12, के और आयरन जैसे मस्तिष्क को बढ़ावा देने वाले पोषक तत्वों की एक विस्तृत विविधता होती है, इसलिए इसे बच्चे के मस्तिष्क के विकास के लिए सबसे अच्छा भोजन माना जाता है। (बच्चों के लिए पोषण युक्तियाँ?)

अंडे:

अंडे मस्तिष्क के स्वास्थ्य से जुड़े कई पोषक तत्वों का एक अच्छा स्रोत हैं, जिनमें विटामिन बी 6, बी 9 और बी 12 शामिल हैं। पूरे अंडे (अंडे का सफेद भाग और जर्दी) खाने से कोलीन की वजह से याददाश्त को नियंत्रित करने में मदद मिलती है। शोध बताते हैं कि अंडे के नियमित सेवन से बच्चों और वयस्कों में संज्ञानात्मक प्रदर्शन में सुधार होता है। (बच्चों को विटामिन की आवश्यकता क्यों है?)

डार्क चॉकलेट:

एक अध्ययन से पता चला है कि पांच दिनों तक कोको खाने से मस्तिष्क में रक्त का प्रवाह बेहतर होता है। डार्क चॉकलेट में पाए जाने वाले कंपाउंड्स  यौगिक स्मृति, ध्यान अवधि, प्रतिक्रिया समय और समस्या को सुलझाने के कौशल को बढ़ाते हैं। यह बच्चों का पसंदीदा है और बच्चे के मस्तिष्क के विकास के लिए भोजन के रूप में काम करता है। (बिना चीनी वाली चॉकलेट ट्विक्स बार की रेसिपी)

मेवे और बीज:

बच्चे के मस्तिष्क के विकास और संज्ञानात्मक कार्यों के लिए मूंगफली, अखरोट, पिस्ता, बादाम और काजू जैसे मेवे बहुत महत्वपूर्ण हैं। इन्हें अपने बच्चे के दैनिक आहार में शामिल करना बहुत फायदेमंद होता है। (मेवे  और बीज के अन्य लाभ)

पानी:

हाइड्रेटेड रहने से भी एकाग्रता पर सकारात्मक प्रभाव पड़ सकता है। यहां तक ​​​​कि हल्का निर्जलीकरण भी जानकारी पर ध्यान केंद्रित करना या याद रखना कठिन बना सकता है।

बच्चों में एकाग्रता बढ़ाने के लिए जड़ी-बूटियाँ:

करक्यूमिन: करक्यूमिन में मस्तिष्क-व्युत्पन्न न्यूरोट्रॉफिक कारक (बीडीएनएफ) नामक एक प्रोटीन होता है जो मस्तिष्क और रीढ़ की हड्डी में पाया जाता है जो तंत्रिका कोशिकाओं को स्वस्थ रखने के साथ-साथ तंत्रिका कोशिकाओं के बीच संचार को विनियमित करने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है|   (मस्तिष्क के समग्र विकास के लिए खाद्य पदार्थ?)

ब्राह्मी: ब्राह्मी मस्तिष्क के लिए एक सुपरफूड है और माना जाता है कि यह कोशिकाओं की रक्षा करके तथा सीखने और स्मृति से जुड़े रसायनों को बढ़ाकर मस्तिष्क को तेज करता है। इसने बच्चों में स्थानिक सीखने और शक्ति बनाए रखने में सुधार दिखाया है। पुराने समय में, बच्चों को अक्सर घी/शहद के साथ ब्राह्मी पाउडर दिया जाता था। इससे उनका ध्यान और चिंतन  बढ़ेगा, और वे शांत और व्यथित भी  रहेंगे। (आयुर्वेदिक जड़ी-बूटियाँ मस्तिष्क के विकास में कैसे मदद कर सकती हैं?)

अश्वगंधा: यह जड़ी बूटी चिंता और तनाव को कम करने के लिए जानी जाती है। और एसिटाइलकोलाइन के स्तर को बढ़ाने के लिए उपयोग किया जाता है जो बेहतर स्मृति, मानसिक ध्यान और बुद्धि का समर्थन करता है। यह जड़ी बूटी मानसिक थकान को भी कम करती है और नींद की गुणवत्ता को बढ़ाती है। यह मस्तिष्क की तंत्रिका कोशिकाओं को क्षति से बचाता है। यह बच्चों के मस्तिष्क के विकास के लिए सबसे अच्छा भोजन है। (अश्वगंधा क्यों?)

शलाकी: यह जड़ी बूटी मुख्य रूप से अपने एंटीऑक्सीडेंट गुण के कारण मस्तिष्क के कार्य में सुधार करती है। इसमें मौजूद एंटीऑक्सीडेंट मस्तिष्क की कोशिकाओं को नुकसान पहुंचाने वाले फ्री रेडिकल्स से लड़ते हैं और याददाश्त को मजबूत करते हैं और इसलिए इसका उपयोग बच्चे के मस्तिष्क के विकास के लिए भोजन के रूप में किया जाता है। (फ्री रेडिकल्स क्या हैं?)


पकाने की विधि: छिपे हुए जड़ी बूटियों और नट्स के साथ बाजरा क्रेप / पैनकेक

आइए सब्जियों, जड़ी-बूटियों और नट्स के ‘छिपे हुए’ पोषण से हर व्यंजन को स्वादिष्ट और पौष्टिक बनाते हैं।

7 Brain Boosting foods for your child

A child’s brain undergoes an amazing period of development from birth to three years as in the first few years of life. More than 1 million new neural connections are formed every second. Since brain develops rapidly from birth to age 5 in children, it affects overall growth of a child. There are four main areas of development in any child: motor (physical), language and communication, social & emotional and cognitive. Brain development is part of cognitive development. Feeding right can help them in better brain development. Moreover, brain boosting foods for children can help to sharpen memory, improve focus and help with cognitive development. As a parent, you can help your child to make healthy food choices to develop their positive relationship with food. Once this is done, kids benefit a lifetime.

Nutrients like omega3 food, B vitamins and antioxidants are good foods for brain for kids. That is why incorporating foods rich in these on a regular basis can improve the health of the brain, memory, cognition and attention.

WHICH FOOD IS GOOD FOR THE BRAIN?

Ashwagandha:

Ashwagandha is an adaptogen. It is known to reduce anxiety and stress. Moreover, it increases acetylcholine levels which support better memory, mental focus and intelligence. This herb also reduces mental fatigue and enhances sleep quality. In addition, it protects the brain nerve cells from damage. Here is a NIH study that elaborates about the positive impact of Ashwagandha on Brain development.

Brahmi:

Brahmi is a superfood for brain and is believed to sharpen the brain by protecting cells and increasing chemicals associated with learning and memory. It has shown to improve spatial learning and retaining power in kids. That is why in older times, kids were often given Brahmi powder with ghee/honey. This would increase their focus and attention, while keeping them calm and destressed. Here is a NIH study that elaborates on cognitive function benefit of Brahmi.

Shankhapushpi:

Shankhapushpi is a traditional remedy for increasing the functioning of the brain. The powerful antioxidants and flavonoids present in it improve the memory capacity, focus, concentration, calmness, alertness of an individual. Since it is a brain tonic and stimulator, people taking shankhapushpi have improved memory, reasoning, problem-solving, and other cognitive abilities.

Seeds:

Apart from nuts seeds like flex, chia, melon, sesame and pumpkins also contain powerful antioxidants like vitamin E that protect the brain from free radical damage. Sunflower seeds impacts overall mood and mental processing powers and therefore it is considered a brain boosting snack. Pumpkin seeds are high in magnesium, copper, and much higher in zinc than other seeds, which help in increasing concentration and memory. One of the easiest to feed brain boosting foods for kids.

OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS:

These healthy fats are crucial to brain and eye development, and can help stabilize mood. It is the primary fatty acid found in the brain, meaning it is a building block for the brain.

Foods to avoid

Refined sugar: Excessive sugar impairs cognitive skills as well as self control. Moreover, sugar damages the protein in our body, resulting in ageing of organs, which further compromises immunity, growth and functioning. Greatest source of sugar in the average kid’s diet are sugary snacks and beverages like cookies, cakes, candies, fruit juice, soda, and sports drinks. Everything that the child picks up to eat today has strains of added sugar in some form or the other.

Preservatives: Most of the packaged food companies are adding artificial preservatives to delay spoilage and contamination in foods.  Artificial preservatives such as nitrates, benzoates, sulfites, sorbates, parabens, formaldehyde, BHT, BHA and several others can cause serious health hazards such as hypersensitivity, allergy, asthma, hyperactivity, neurological damage.

Refined oil: The high temperature involved in the refining process removes all the natural and beneficial substances from the oil, which is not good for the digestive as well as respiratory health and ultimately affects your immunity.

3 Supplements for Brain Development of Child

herbs for brain development

With the increasing pressure of school based education, Olympiads, external competitions like spell bee and extracurricular activities, it becomes important as a parent to set your child on the right path from the very beginning. The brain development of child starts from the very first week of pregnancy and continues throughout the childhood and adult years. As such, taking care of proper brain development by eating brain development food for child , following proper sleep schedule and daily exercise can help. (How to improve concentration in kids?)

What causes Cognitive decline or aging of brain?

Imbalance between antioxidants and free radicals is the basis for free radical damage resulting in aging and cognitive decline. This cycle is natural. However, to protect the body from any damage and early decay, we must maintain a balance of free-radials and anti-oxidants. Therefore, we must eat real foods like whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables in as much variety as possible to be able to absorb complete nutrition to keep this balance. Also we must maintain a healthy number of good bacteria in our gut. This combined with anti-oxidants will protect the body from diseases and illness. (How to keep the gut healthy?)

BRAIN DEVELOPMENT FOOD FOR CHILD:

There is no magic pill to prevent cognitive decline. However, consuming a lot of nuts, fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains can protect the brain from early aging and (now common) dysfunctions. Nutrients like omega3 food, B vitamins and antioxidants support brain health. That is why brain development food for child must contain these nutrients and incorporating food rich in these on a regular basis can improve the health of the brain, memory, cognition and attention. In addition to this, Ayurvedic herbs can help with the brain development of child if given from the early years.

Ayurvedic herbal medications are increasingly researched due to their biosafety profile and usefulness in cognitive impairment. They do not yield results over-night. Herbal supplements for brain help only when they are taken for a prolonged period of time. Long-term consumption of purely crafted supplements do not make your body dependent on the herbal drug or supplement. (Do healthy kids need vitamin supplements?)

Bramhi attacks the free radical scavengers and protects cells in prefrontal cortex, hippocampus, and DNA damage. It reduces stress-induced hippocampal damage and hence is a great supplement for brain. Herbal supplements do not have harmful impact on the body.  

Brahmi is a superfood for brain and is believed to sharpen the brain by protecting cells and increasing chemicals associated with learning and memory. It has shown to improve spatial learning and retaining power in kidsIn older times, kids were often given Brahmi powder with ghee/honey. This would increase their focus and attention, while keeping them calm and destressed. (Foods that help kids keep better?)

Here are some scientific research papers which speak about the positive impact of Brahmi on overall health (read research). Here is a NIH study that elaborates on cognitive function benefit of Brahmi.

Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is an adaptogen. Adaptogens are herbal supplements that work to counteract the effects of stress in the body. Stress causes very real physical changes in the body, including harming the neurological, endocrine, and immune systems. Adaptogens have stimulant properties that help counteract those harmful effects.

The root of Ashwagandha smells like horse (“ashwa”), that is why it is called Ashwagandha (on consuming it gives the power of a horse).

Ashwagandha is commonly available as a churna, a powder that can be mixed with water, ghee (clarified butter) or honey. It enhances the function of the brain and nervous system and improves the memory. It improves the function of the reproductive system promoting a healthy reproductive balance. Being a powerful adaptogen, it enhances the body’s resilience to stress, fatigue, pain and anxiety. And improves the body’s defense against disease by improving the body cells immunity and it also possesses potent antioxidant properties that help protect against cellular damage caused by free radicals.
