I think you get into a panic mode during the exams and develop the jitters. It is best for you to do deep breathing for a few minutes and you will calm down immediately. There is a good exercise that helps to lower panic immediately: block your closed lips with your index finger and blow tight against your cheeks and hold that breath for some time and then release it. Your heart beat will slow down instantly and you will have a calmer demeanor to approach your exam paper. A lot of the reason may be true because of your age and a little stress perhaps. I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 or coconut 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 are 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

I'm a 20 year old male, recently having severe anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, and fear for no reason. I've been noticing new white hair on my head daily, and my eyebrows seem to be thinning quickly. I also feel great stress for no reason and breakout in nervous sweats randomly. Any help is much appreciated, curious if there is some connection between the hairloss/color change and the stress, or if its just an anxiety disorder. I should note I've always had a slight anxiety issue, but never this bad, worsened in the past several months.

Dear Soumen. Welcome to lybrate. I do understand. You are correct. There is relationship between stress and hair loss and premature greying of hair. Stress and anxiety creates havoc in your body and those results are seen in your head too. You are having panic attacks. Proper treatment using psychotherapy, relaxation therapy and life style changes are essential for a cure. Please do not delay and consult a sychologist online. Take ccare.

Physically she may lose libido (sex drive) earlier than you as she ages. This may cause problems in your sexual life. Psychologically there may erupt ego clashes in future since you are younger and if you would like to have a male-dominant family. But with good understanding and open communication from both sides, you can live a happy married life.

Hello, the very essence of a successful enterprise, is the person being strong and level headed. There are millions of examples where multiple 1st attempts did not fare well and they ultimately founded one of the biggest company in the world, like ali baba, uber, whatsapp and millions other, however common thing amongst them was one took the easy way out to alcohol. They studied the reason for failure, improved upon the mistake s ultimately to strike gold. All your symptoms are because of alcohol and lack off sleep, a visit to a psychologist is strongly suggested so he can help you before you damage your health and future prospects both. Hoping I could help.

Deat Lybrate user. Depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Which has distinct symptoms which are available atleast for 6 months. Depressed people are like any other people. They will be troubled only during the onset of depression which happens once or twice a week or less than that. Then can indulge in any activities a normal man can do. Psychiatric treatment is a must. Take care.

I am a 22 year old girl. I am having chronic adhd and it seems to get bad everyday. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You need to combine medication and therapy for something effective to emerge for you. There are three areas of focus in therapy that needs serious work: concentration, hyperactivity, and impulse control. You will need to put yourself on a strict time-structure with planned activities which have reasonable and reachable goals. These must be monitored and assessed regularly to give you an idea of progress. There are concentration exercises in yoga, and the ear and eye exercise, that will benefit you a lot. Meditation will be tremendously useful to moderate your responses and to develop focus and good self-control. Emotional therapy will play a significant role to alleviate the impulsive behavior to a large extent. If all this is done in a social context i. E. In groups or by mixing with other people, you will gain tremendously. You need to be cooperative at all times. Your diet could do with less carbohydrates and a good bit of fiber. It is best to avoid high-energy foods. Vigorous exercise of at least 30 minutes a day will expunge the high energy levels. The treatment is long term and arduous but it is worth putting in this effort for a reasonable outcome.

You must speak to other people and get out of this fear. Don’t submit to the depression. If you find the fight is too much, then go for counseling first and then for medication. The combination is ideal to combat this condition. This is the only condition were you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too, if you are not already married. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings.

Smoking can affect your appetite. Muscle gain is ideally attained with exercise and a proper diet. If you have hyperthyroidism, then you will have a problem gaining weight. Then there is the possibility that your level of metabolism is higher than normal due to many factors one of which is stress. So it is worth meeting with a counselor and talking about the stress and leading a more composed life.

Your weight gain may be related to emotional eating. If so I suggest that you go for counseling to learn to handle your emotions appropriately. Apart from that you need to increase your metabolic rate through exercise: ideally the aerobic kind and at least half an hour of vigorous levels. Reduce your intake of fried foods and high carbohydrates. Eat a lot of high fiber in the form of vegetables and fruits. Cut down on sugar and sweets. Eat a good breakfast, a smaller lunch and a very small helping for dinner. Have your dinner before 8 pm every day. Before every meal have a cucumber and drink a glass of water. Drink a lot of water during the day anyway. There is a very good health supplement which helps you reduce your weight without any side-effects and is very nutritious. You will need to contact me for that food supplement.
