Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

You are under some stress and you are not aware of it. Meet with a counselor and sort that out. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must.

Morning sex is good for the brain

Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Sexologist, Chennai
Morning sex is good for the brain

Morning sex is good for the brain

Just several minutes of morning sex can keep you looking younger and improve your mood for the rest of the day.

Sex, on its own, comes with a few benefits but did you know that having sex first thing in the morning is capable of improving your mental abilities?

Men accumulate testosterone as they as they sleep and from the time they wake up, they have a three-hour window when they are brimming with testosterone.

That early morning erection is not called 'morning wood' or 'morning glory' for nothing. Whatever it is called, having an erection on waking up is as good a reason as any to initiate a little morning sex.

Not only is it a great way to kick start your day because it'll leave you feeling lively and energised, a great love-making session will also alert your brain nerves making you mentally alert after you have spent up to eight hours asleep.

Another great perk is that morning sex is a really good way to connect with your partner before the day begins.

Studies also back this up, with a recent one saying, 'adults who start their day with sex are more likely to be happier and healthier than those who start their day with a cup of coffee and breakfast.'

So dump the coffee and hump your boo

Sir, A case of love failure. I loved a girl but she likes someone else. Depression has been mine regular thing. I feel like to commit suicide. Does consulting a psychiatrist helps me out of the situation?

Hi lybrate-user, at this age these incidences are very common. Love is a broader term; the one who is made for you will meet you at proper time but you have to wait for that golden opportunity. To commit suicide is a weird and most condemnable thing to do. One should not even think of it. Your parents and family members love you a lot and please think of all those who love you not due to your education or looks but just as you are. Be you and feel special. Always try to improve yourself as a person, and compete with yourself. Learn from your past mistakes and always focus on the good things that you have achieved in your life instead of looking on what bad things have happened with you. You have to take charge of your happiness. Is your happiness so cheap that a lady or a gentleman can ruin it completely? Rather be special and setup an example for people and pear group. Make your presence special, make your smile special, make your guesture and posture special, in short love yourself. Your present problem states that you are not in love with yourself, that's why you feel in negative way. Now answer honestly who would purchase stale bread? Obviously no one. Similarly, think who would love a guy who doesn't love himself? So I think you got your answer, be brave. Babies don't leave walking due to fear of falling, we don't leave driving due to fear of accidents then why shall we feel negative in life. It happens Nikhil, believe me life is a suspense and I am sure you need to prove yourself. I am pretty sure you would make any girl feel special but that lady is not so special to deserve your love. Please do not waste your energy and divert it into some positive aspects so that your energy may bring light in many lives. Definitely, You should consult a psychiatrist for channelising your negative energy into positive energy and make you feel special. :)

I smoke 2 to 4 times a day. By that can my health may be affected? And how to quit cigarettes? Or is one or two cigarettes are also going to be treble for me?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Even one will affect health. Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Sir/ madam my father is addicted with tabbaco and I wan to quite their this habbiy I am requesting you to help him so he can quit it easily.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Ideally you must spend a lot of time convincing him to stop the smoking. Of course he will agree sometimes and sometimes he will change his mind. Giving up is difficult but if you highlight the dangers of smoking regularly he may one day decide to quit. Never give up on him. Because of his age and quantity of cigarettes smoked and the length of abuse, he will find is even harder. When quitting, he must take one day at a time. If he looks too far ahead he will get discouraged and will give up. If he sits and counts the number of days he has given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. He must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if he fails one day, he must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. His persistence and yours will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But his 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 him about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and he must remind himself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So he must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for him. In fact it is highly toxic too. He will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He 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. He 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 him 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 he has quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. Everyone who can help him should be involved until he succeeds. If all this does not work, you can admit him into a rehabilitation center and let him stay there until he has completely quit the habit.

My exams are near by, I am not able to concentrate in studies So, please give me some tips to improve my concentration in studies.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
Your exam is knocking at your door. Start your studies with a calm, positive & optimistic mind. Focus on your preparation only. Put your maximum effort in your preparation & aim to give your best. Do not think of the outcome & its consequences now. Prepare yourself mentally for the exam. Take the following measures to improve your concentration & prepare well: •Make a study routine giving maximum time for studies. Also give adequate time for sleep, rest & relaxation. Between studies you have to relax also. This will help in sustaining your interest & concentration. Try to stick to your routine. At night look back how much you could follow the routine & reward yourself if the day was productive & to your satisfaction. In the form of reward you can give little extra time for relaxation next day, watch TV or spend some with internet, eat something you like, meet a friend etc. Encourage yourself daily. •Revise your lessons regularly. •Study relaxly with a calm mind & take small breaks during studies. •Be confident of yourself & do not compare yourself with others. •If you feel stressed while studying, talk to someone, listen to some music or do something that relax you. •Create the environment in your study room similar to your exam hall. Then you will find your exam hall comfortable & familiar. •Expect exam outcomes rationally & what is within your capability. Impractical & over expectation that is beyond one’s capability brings in fear & frustration. •Take your class time seriously by taking notes summarizing what your teacher has said. •During the days of preparation for exam eat healthy, stay hydrated & avoid substances of abuse, as a healthy body prepares a healthy mind. •Every morning relax yourself adequately before you sit for studies; go for a walk, spend some time with nature, go for a walk, do yoga, breathing exercise or relaxation techniques. •On the day prior to exam sleep adequately. •Reach the examination hall before time so that you are relaxed & mentally prepared for the exam. Do not guess the exam outcomes just target to give your best. Think positive. Start writing with a calm mind. Be aware of the anxiety symptoms, & if you feel anxiety is building up, just concentrate on breathing in & out slowly or tighten & relax your shoulders or stretch your legs. You can also take a small break & drink some water •Do not look around; just concentrate on your paper. •Revise quickly once you finish answering. All the best for your preparation & for your exam. Give your best.

Dear, tobacco is the most addictive substance known to man. It is also carcinogenic and therefore it needs to be kept away from human consumption. Your problem is tobacco abuse and addiction. The best method to stop tobacco is to have will power and self belief. Tobacco chewing gums, lozenges and patches are available across medical shops to manage your tobacco craving. In any case the first step is to take a strong decision about quitting. You may consult a psychologist for substance abuse counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Earliest and positive response - you got many times when you rushed to the hospitals, "High BP is common in anxiety and ECG is fine" But it did not bring a smile in you since you are suffering from anticipatory anxiety also apart from Panic Disorder. Instead of going to many psychiatrist, if you decide to continue at least for 6 months to the same doctor without checking BP, ECG, second opinion or third opinion, you can smile and enjoy not only jokes, even life.

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. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don’t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

They need to be told that these are trial relationships and not to take them too seriously. They become too possessive and then when it becomes too stifling for the other person who will eventually want out, the losing partner dispairs. They need to learn lessons from every relationship to take int the future. If they do not learn, they will tend to repeat the same mistakes. They must be taught how to deal with a failed relationship especially about their feelings and some left over bad experiences. If they do not do this, they will carry baggage and affect the next relationship. Sometimes, you can help them identify if they are actually favoring the parent of the opposite sex when choosing a person and see how that ties up with unresolved sexual identity and resolve the same. Then the usual about not carrying bad experiences and affecting their own lives, socializing more, not taking anything too personally, not bad-mouthing the other person after the breakup, not to jump into another relationship too soon after the breakup, etc.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Yes, it could be if you have been smoking for a long time especially during your adolescence period. It is not enough to quit smoking, which is in itself an excellent thing, but now you must do something to return your ravaged body, mind, and brain back to a healthy state. Depending on when you quit and how much you have smoked, it will take time for your health to revert to old times. To hasten it you must do some effective things immediately. You must take one day at a time when quitting. 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 gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially.

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. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

Its inappropriate to keep your feelings to yourself. If you know the girl you can talk to her about your feelings and be done. Fear of rejection should not keep you away from anything in life, be it love or anything else. If you continue to feel depressed I would advise to start some treatment and counselling.

To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relieve stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white flour in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Hope this helps.
