How can I increase my memory? I forget things after some time. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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 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 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.

My mom behaves differently. She goes anywhere and does not know how she went. Her anger is uncontrollable and when she cool down she forget how she behaved. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your mom may be suffering temporary amnesia from an emotional high, especially due to anger. You must discuss this with her doctor and see what s/he suggests. In the meantime have her talk to a counselor and continue with that for many months until he does better. She needs to learn how to handle her emotions and there are signs that her anger is too deeply pent up. This is not a good sign in the long run and she may have a severe outburst where she may not be in control of her actions and may inadvertently do something irreparable.

Dear , unable to study or learn is never the direct side effect of masturbation. Masturbation is healthy and is a stress buster if used moderately. At this age, you can have one per day. Enjoy it. Don't be anxious about it. Being anxious about it and having wrong knowledge could trigger anxiety disorder and I think your problem is anxiety disorder. Please post a private question to me. I will help you. Take care.

Hi, Exercise Researchers have suggested several ways that regular physical activity may play a role in keeping your brain healthy and your memory strong. Therefore, try to build moderate exercise into your daily routine, setting aside specific time for it. Eating Right Maintaining a healthy diet rich in nutrients may be a factor in preserving brain function and memory. Fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats from whole grains, fish, and nuts may be beneficial in protecting against diseases and maintaining brain health. If you are experiencing traumatic stress or find yourself stuck in repetitive, unhealthy behavior... ...Try exercising the muscles connected to fight-or-flight with attention. Exercises that use both your arms and legs—and are done in a focused way with mindful awareness of your physical and emotional experience—are especially good at reducing traumatic stress. Exercises like walking, running, swimming, or rock-climbing, activate your senses and make you more aware of yourself and others when they are done with focused attention.

How I easily remember all subjects . I want to know . I want to score 80 percent.

Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs". However, there are many other examples like u said about obsession to c private parts. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly.

I smoke 10-13 cigarettes a day. I dont want to quit it. But I fear of getting heart attack one day. N the best way to minimize the effect if smoking is a good diet plan. Please help me with my diet chart. I am 20 years old.

First thing, quit smoking, by throwing your cigarette pack. Get your bp, lipid profile checked. We need to know your exact weight. A good nutritious diet cannot negate the ill effects of smoking.

Sir I am suffering from anxiety and panic attack. I continuously masturbate from my 17 to till now daily 2 times a day. I am asking that masturbate will increase anxiety?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Sravan, i don't know your age now. But at the age of 17 years masturbating 2 times daily is normal. Masturbation relieves anxiety in teenagers. It can not cause anxiety by itself. But feeling guilty of masturbation and trying not to masturbate may cause anxiety and increase it.
