Feeling nervous and no concentration

These symptoms (feeling nervous and no concentration) are both upsurge of emotion. It indicates that the power of controlling upsurged emotion is weak, and the tendency of getting upset easily is more or less depending on the congenital factor. It is important to observe children when they are small, but even if they are restless, as far as they have something to become enthusiastic, you do not worry about them too much. 

Rather, the problems lie on introverted disposition, such as they prefer stay inwards or take time to make a move. For those who have introverted disposition, qi tends to be deviated to the head, and this tendency is strengthened as they develop their physical strength towards adolescence.

It is recommended to play sports or exercise to release excessed qi, and to take care of their daily life not to weaken their power of inner organs that can control the upsurge of emotion. 

Look back your daily life. 

(1) To release excessed qi, consider to cut your hair short, try to go out often, make a contact with nature and communicate with people.
(2) To strengthen the power of inner organs, it is important not to take cold foods and drinks as possible, not to eat too much and limit sweet foods. 
(3) In these cases, it sometimes occurs not to develop conversation with others and ends up to repeat the same thing. As a result, the conversation tends not to be deepened so much, and they are not followed by their own behaviors. 
  In the contemporary standardized society, there are a lot of people who do not fit the society and feel the pain. It is as if they try to fit their feet to the shoes, so those who understand this situation have a role to look for the environment that can fit with them. 
(4) In this kind of symptom, it is better to have a good communication with a specialist.
