Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Actually alcohol is acidic in nature and acids are gastric irritants-so not always but most of the time taking alcoholic things frequently can upset our gastric system and from here other problems starts, so be careful while eating alcoholic things.

I usually distract whenever I do the study. I can't concentrate on study. Why? Please give solution as much as possible.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Easy distraction is due to poor attention span and poor concentration levels. You can increase that by adopting simple techniques. Divide your study topic into small related parts, study in breaks, relax after 30-45 min of study, try to recollect that you have gone through every 30 min in short and then only begin another topic. Always correlate things that you have studied. Donot study unrelated topics on same day. If you still ding difficulty in maintaining concentration and attention start medicines with my advice.

Dear doctor, I am feeling alone since a long time. I have family ,husband kids everyone but still miss a friend and sometimes try to find but I don't know the qualities of a friend neither I know I myself have the qualities of a good friend or not. I want to share my feelings, my fears, my wishes and want to travel with some one but no one has time. How can I find a friend.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to make friends by going out there and meeting people and finding common grounds. Not everyone is going to be suitable but everyone can be a good companion and later turn out to be good friends. You yourself must be an open person and show interest in other people and their needs. If you are friendly and kind a lot of people will want to be associated with you. One of the qualities of an Autonomous Personality is Intimacy. Intimacy is the ability to be comfortable when you are close to people and even when you are apart from them. It involves trust, frankness, love, concern, kindness, acceptance, and openness. You can learn to cultivate these qualities and you will make a lot of good friends. You need to practice these at home first, which is the​ nursery of these developments.

I am 22 years. I have consulted doc recently regarding memory loss and said some brief history of my childhood. He said I have phobia of exams. He advised me to take etizola. 5mg tablet. Does it have side-effect because now I feel i am ok. But there is loss of memory.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The prescription is for mild anxiety and is good for you for sometime. I recommend that you go for counseling in tandem with the medication. Among the precautions to take, you do not need to worry at all, and the side effects are also of mild levels. If you notice any unusual changes, you must report back to the doctor.

I am 54 and recently I have developed flying phobia. Being a humanitarian worker I have travelled a lot in the past but now I am very scared. Pls advise what can I do?

BDS, Certification in hypnotherapy, Certification in N.L.P, Certification in Gene and behavior, Psychology at Work
Psychologist, Gurgaon
You can go for a hypnotherapy session. It is mighty effective. Or else do this n. L. P exercise at home imagine you are sitting alone in a theater. Watching movie of your flying on the white screen once you've got your cinema pictured, imagine your" scary short film" up on the screen take the film and see it on the screen. Picture it. But let's make it black and white. And now make it blurry, so you can still see what's going on, but make less defined. Make it smaller. You still will be able to see it, but it needs to be smaller, so it doesn't take up very much of the screen. Finally, the film itself will be silent, with some loud comedy music playing or cartoon music. Now on top of everything put a image of yourself confident, as you are in doing your kind of work feel confident and laugh over it. Repeat it for 3 times. Continue until you get over with fear.

Hi, Can any one suggest some information for building the nervous system and strengthening the brain.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it:) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory?’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i. E. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9 pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Avoid using the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Geo Satellite Navigation may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Stop Using the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables? It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain!

Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning 2. Find a way to leverage your memory 3’ create a mental memory tree 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories

Hellolybrate-user, first of all you need to get your eyesight checked. The symptoms you have written can be caused by dry eyes, convergence weakness, or refractive errors. You can use a tear substitute and take more of green vegetables and fruits. Spend less time on screens (mobile n computer) if possible. If you have got refractive error please go for spectacles. Take care.

For phobias cognitive behaviour therapy and desensitization techniques is helpful. I think he is suffering phobia with depressive thoughts. It is curable with the help of psychologist. Better to consult psychologist for psychological counselling. Do not use any medicine it has side effects. Psychotherapy has no side effects. But you should express complete problem and follow his recommendation strictly. Ok best of luck.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

My exams are nearly approaching, n I am tensed and nervous about it, whenever I made plans for day for study n due to other work aur sleepiness unable to do it, my tension increases more because of the incomplete task.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

If you want better results while studying, revision is the key. Repeated revision consolidates the information in the brain and helps to retain the information. Other than that, try a daily exercise of recalling your entire day in as much detail as possible before you sleep. Initially only important or superficial details are recalled, but with practice minor details can also be recalled. Be more organized; make lists. Use acronyms and mnemonic devices to help you remember. Take 45 minute slots followed by a 5-15 minute break. Eat and at proper times. Drink plenty of water. Find time for exercise or meditation. Keep time for proper revision at end of study session. Revise before you sleep.
