I am 22 years old female, currently preparing for some competitive exam. I am having a feeling of like nothing is good and this sometimes leads me to not study for the whole day and moreover, I am lacking the feeling of complete happiness, joy, or to feel sadness completely, and also I now have stopped going to meet my old friends much. Also, these behavioral problems were observed when I was giving my premedical entrance exam five years back. Then also I used to stop studying for days and even after having the guilt of not studying could not study for long. So, I just want to know that am I having any problem or is everything fine. And am I bothering too much? Please help.

You are overworked or overstressed. Take some vacation. I can understand about exam preparation but sometimes we need some break in our life. Due to continuous exposure, we get bored and then it is difficult to concentrate on work or study. Make a schedule. Do not just keep reading. Take daily enough sleep, at least 7 to 8 hours, eat healthy good home cooked food, avoid junk foods, do daily exercise for 30 to 45 minutes, do daily meditation, eat fruits and vegetables, spend time with friends and family, spend time for your creative hobbies like writing, painting, learn some new like musical instruments or language, etc. Laugh as much as you can. Life is to live, not just spend it. Study is important but only study is not important.
