‘Help, I feel lazy these days’
I am a 14-year-old boy in Class 9. I have been a very active child. Of late, I am unable to follow my daily schedule. As this is holiday time, I feel kind of lazy. Initially I did not like my parents shouting at me, but now even I feel that I sleep a lot. And if I sit to study, I keep thinking. I have lot of irrational thoughts in my mind which take me nowhere and just waste my time. As I go deep into this thought process I am also able to feel the emotions being experienced. And then suddenly I realise what I am doing. How should I stop this?

But when some thoughts which are meaningless and baseless in nature start coming to our mind too frequently they distract us. This obsession with thoughts from others like ask your parents to wake you up early in in the morning. Further, keep a stopwatch on your table and have a focused sitting of 20 minutes; then you can do whatever you like for the next 10 minutes. For these 20 minutes, you will tell yourself to focus on the task you have at hand and complete it. Do not lose hope and have confidence in your ability. If your condition does not change significantly, you may seek professional help too. I am sure you will sail through smoothly.

I feel this constant pressure always in my head and do not want to go out of the house. Now, though, I must say that my parents hardly discuss admissions till I want them to and I feel relaxed talking to them. But please guide me on how should I deal with these other people? I feel drained of all the resources to handle such people.

Next time you meet them you might tell them in a very soft but firm way that ‘I am already doing my best for my future and my parents are helping me in this process, I thank you for your concern and want to tell you that coming out of the house is a way of relaxation for me, but I do not really like talking about the same issue again and again.’
