You may be having a spurt in the growth hormone and all the energy is being diverted towards your physical growth. After that stops you will feel better all over again. You may also consult a counselor to see if there are other matters to be concerned about that needs attention. One thing that I can think of is the unresolved issues from childhood may be coming up now looking for a resolution. So a counselor will certainly help in that regard. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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.

Dear lybrate-user, you are stressed due to family problems. Family stress is common for many people. You should be able to find a balance between office and home. Relationship is more important and therefore you need to settle the issue at home. You may see a psychologist for counseling. Take care.

Hello, closed room or terrace does not matter, important point is this that you should sit alone where you find the least distraction of your concentration.

Psychosomatic disorder means there is no defect in physically. It is everything related to psychological. For that reason medicine will not work properly to her. For psychosomatic disorders psychotherapy or psychological counselling helps to her very much. Better to stop the medicine. Consult psychologist. He understands total situation. Suggest some of the behavioural modification. Based on his recommendation please change her lifestyle modification. It is very difficult. But it works properly. It is permanent method. It has no side effects. Physically there is no problems. If anything is wrong the diagnosis reveal t. At. You already go for medicine. The doctor himself described that it is psychosomatic. Then why do you late. Better to consult a qualified psychologist. Better to follow his recommendations. Better to share her thoughts. Ask what are the problems in school. Better to take further steps to remove her problems. Treat her as a friend ask each and every problem. Better to friendly with her. Do not allow her loneliness. Share all the feelings. Be happy with her and be friendly. Ok all the best.

Hi there ~ Stay focused on the present. Pay attention to the way your body feels, the rhythm of your breathing, your ever-changing emotions, and the thoughts that drift across your mind. If you find yourself getting stuck on a particular thought, bring your attention back to the present moment. Using mindfulness meditation to stay focused on the present is a simple concept, but it takes practice to reap the benefits. At first, you’ll probably find that your mind keeps wandering back to your worries. Try not to get frustrated. Each time you draw your focus back to the present, you’re reinforcing a new mental habit that will help you break free of the negative worry cycle.

Since you are already on medication I suggest you talk to your treating Psychiatrist and convey your current symptoms to them. It is possible that some changes in medication dosages will help improve the symptoms. As they are familiar with your history it is always better to have a discussion with them regarding this situation.

My boyfriend is born Intersex by birth (male and female both) He has the genitals of a Intersex person. (He's not transgender) I'm a normal female and I'm his girlfriend. The problem is that he's struggling with low self esteem. He hates his life because he's a Intersex person. He also suffers from depression and anxiety because of this. He tried committing suicide many years ago and I suspect that he still must be feeling suicidal. I always do my best to keep him happy but nothing works. Please tell me what to do? How should I help him out? I hope he doesn't commit suicide.

Hi i am 18 years old and I've been smoking herbal shisha. My dad won't let me buy one. We know its not good for us but herbal is better than tobacco shisha right? And I used to smoke cigarettes and herbal shisha is better than that right? I just wanna show my dad it is bad but not the point of tobacco or cigarettes. I also never heard of someone get cancer from it. Its not ruled out but still. Please advise.

Perhaps this article will help throw some light on your mis-perceptions. the other danger is that because it is a smoking habit but without tobacco after sometime you will easily switch over to tobacco smoking too. Read this article: Just because something is marketed as herbal doesn’t make it healthy—especially when it comes to smoking shisha, which can contain toxic metals, tar and other carcinogenic compounds sometimes on par with cigarettes, warn researchers from the University of Alberta. In a new study published this month in the peer-reviewed journal Tobacco Control, an international team of researchers led by the U of A studied three popular Canadian brands of herbal shisha and found trace toxic metals such as chromium, nickel and arsenic, in addition to high levels of tar in smoke inhaled from shisha hookahs, or water pipes. Herbal shisha also contained carcinogenic compounds such as chrysene, found in coal tar, and naphthalene, used in mothballs, in levels matching or exceeding what’s found in cigarettes. None of the three brands identified ingredients or had content warnings—a level of oversight not required in Alberta. “It’s a misuse of the word herbal, which has a connotation of health,” said Barry Finegan, lead author and a professor of anesthesiology and pain medicine in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry. “Unlike a bottle of pop, which contains a list of ingredients, you can buy a package of shisha material commercially and have no idea what’s actually in it. A consumer cannot assess carefully what’s in the package and whether there’s a potential health risk; there’s no consistency to it.”
