Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

I am a smoker for 5 years daily a packet. Now I want to stop it. I have tried several times but failed due to its withdrawal symptoms. Give me most effective medicine to quit smoking.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all 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.

I lost somebody close and some then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time. Please help.

I lost somebody close and some then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time. Please help.
Hi. I am sorry to hear about your loss. Losing someone causes grief reaction and this takes around 3 months to go completely. The stages of grief are. Initially there is denial for the loss that it is not possible to lose them. Second is anger towards god that why did he do this to you. Third stage of it is bargaining that god can have taken anyone one else or you instead of that person which also venish with tym. Fourth stage is depression which currently I think you r going through. And last stage is acceptance which will soon come and you will be out of it. If the stage persists for more than few months than definitely you should consult to a psychiatrist. So be cool and let the tym travel. If still you feel that you need treatment you can consult me. Thanks and tc.

Post Graduate Diploma In Rehabilitation Psychology, M A Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Bhopal
Hi VIJAY Problem described by you is very common. Often we fail to register the names in the first place since introductory conversations are very brief. Next time you come across a new name 1. Make sure you have clearly heard the name, 2. Associate the name with the persons face, persona, actions 3. Repeat the name in following conversation. Ex. Ajay would you like to have coffee. Ajay it was nice meeting you. If your problem persist and you find you are missing out on other things too, you might want to consult psychologist/ psychiatrist. All the best!!

Dear lybrate user, it appears to me that you did not get enough respect and appreciation from your loved ones while growing up. Presently you are searching for gratification from masturbation. Masturbation is healthy when done to relieve intense sexual urge. But if you are doing this as a habit, then it will be harmful for you. Please contact a counsellor who will help you have higher self esteem and confidence. Once you gain that you will not have social anxiety and depression. You also will be able to better control on your mind. Good luck.

I am lacking concentration, what shall I do?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

6 Simple Ways to Bust Anxiety

DNB (PSYCHIATRY), DPM, MBBS,
Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
6 Simple Ways to Bust Anxiety

Being constantly anxious impairs work performance and creates havoc in relationships. The best way to deal with it to accept that it is only a temporary phase which everyone faces. If you keep worrying and try to fight it, you will become even more anxious and your health will become even worse.

It is therefore important that you acknowledge it, first of all and try to cope with it. Controlling anxiety isn't a gigantic task. You can feel at ease with by doing these simple things:

  1. Self-soothing techniques: There are many physiological things for you to do as well which will allow you to relieve anxiety. Diaphragmatic breathing is a very good way to achieve this. Sometimes reassuring yourself is more valuable than you think. Practice saying comforting things to yourself and the stress and anxiety will automatically reduce. Muscle relaxation is yet another method which will allow you to decrease your anxiety.
  2. Deep breathing: A 5-minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth.
  3. Meditation: Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.
  4. Get adequate sleep: Everyone feels bad when they do not sleep enough. However, did you know that lack of sleep is a major cause of anxiety. The more you sleep, the less anxious you will feel.
  5. Exercise regularly: You probably know that exercise is very important for maintaining good health. However, what you probably do not know is that exercise is perhaps more effective than even medication in relieving your anxiety. Therefore, it is imperative for you to get moving.
  6. Monitor your diet: Your diet is crucial in reducing your anxiety as caffeine and alcohol are two of the leading causes of anxiety in your body. However, abruptly stopping your intake of caffeine and alcohol also leads to withdrawal symptoms. Therefore balancing out intake of alcohol and caffeine is crucial.

M 20 years old. M in a relationship from v long time. Before my bf used to smoke weed n drink a lot. I used to cry a lot for the same. It's been 2 months he left everything. Now from 3 days he has again started smoking weed. N behaves even worse. I cry I plead in front of him. But he gets irritated. Doesn't have time for me. He says he loves m. But he has become so stubborn behaves so stubborn. Even if I beg him nothing affects him. Wot should I do.

Dear lybrate-user, I can see you are concern for your love one. But always crying and begging not gonna work for people who have addiction for any kond of drugs. I appreciate your friend's effort also that he tried to quite it. Relationship is about supporting each other. Try to know the root or the reason why he started again consuming cannabis. Cannabis or any addiction can take time to cure. Support him in every way possibe. Try to look in to the problem from his prespective also. And most of that. Stay strong. I know you will do better for both of you.

" how to naturally beat sleep disturbance" got published: one of the main reasons for not getting proper sleep is that the plans made during the day time or earlier do not succeed and mind speculates or wanders to find ways to make those plans work. These mental speculations repeat in mind at time of sleeping. So, due to plans not working as the mind likes to, the mind remains in the agitated state due to being unable to find a solution. This leads to frustration which avoids the mind to go in sleep mode. This leads to not getting proper sleep. The solution to the problem does not lie in thinking intentionally further about such plans, but in faith surrender to the supreme. Instead of thinking about the plans it is better to read a nice book, listen to nice music or talks which do not allow mind to get frustrated with mental speculations. Stress is so all-pervading in this material world that everyone is tortured by it. Stress takes many forms. We are stressed by health problems, financial problems, interpersonal problems and many more. The solution for all varieties of stress is to understand that its underlying cause is bodily consciousness, the false identification of the self with the body. As soon as one realizes that he is not his body and that his real happiness is based on harmonizing his consciousness with the supreme consciousness and he then learns the art of doing this, his stress goes flying out the window to be replaced with profoundly sweet transcendental bliss. -sda.

I am a 16 year old and I have been in depression. Which antidepressant so you recommend?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are too young to need antidepressants. Why don’t you first try other behavior modification and counseling methods and if they fail, you may go for medication. Depression is a mood disorder and the more you deal with your emotions, the better you will feel. You need to particularly look at sadness and anger. If you do 30 minutes of vigorous exercise every day, the brain will produce natural antidepressants. Also a diet high in proteins will help. Be active, socialize often. Expose yourself to sunlight for at least 30 minutes every day, talk to people, do not sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am daily, play contact games, watch entertaining sitcoms, comedies, and cheerful videos. You could listen to good music, read mind-grabbing books (though you must not use it to withdraw from people), go out even on tours, excursions, picnics etc, join a social club, and develop some interesting hobbies, and so on. When these fail to get you out of the depression, then go to a psychiatrist.

Dear lybrateuser, -Unless your mind is at peace you will not be able to concentrate & study well, one requires a peaceful, friendly & congenial atmosphere to do well in any field -your decision to change your college is justified as under mental disturbance & hostile environment you cannot do well, let people say what they want you should have faith in your decision, study hard & do well they will be happy with you & you also will come over your apprehensions about changing the college.

I recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Consuming foods such as ginger, green tea, fatty fish, soy products, blueberries, and other dark berries may protect these important cells from damage. Evidence suggests that the DHA found in omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia by reducing beta-amyloid plaques. Food sources include cold-water fish such as salmon, tuna, trout, mackerel, and sardines. You can also supplement with fish oil.

I think you are suffering from hyperarausal disorder with transvestic fetichism. The essential feature of transvestic fetishism is recurrent intense sexual urges and sexually arousing fantasies involving dressing in clothing associated with members of the opposite sex. Another term for tranvestic fetishism is cross-dressing; people who frequently engage in cross-dressing are sometimes called transvestites. A diagnosis of transvestic fetishism is made only if an individual has acted on these urges or is markedly distressed by them.

I am feeling depressed alot nowadays from last 1 year. Please suggest me some tips to come out of depression. please.
In our current life style most of us are not equipped to deal with our mental and emotional processes. Due to constant out side pressure and expectations we doubt and question our abilities. Also in a age of super fast life we lean towards instant results, which at times are not possible. This again increase our stress level. The best way to deal with this is to build our resilience and learn to manage our strees level. Once you are able to manage your stress, your self confideance and your self esteem both will increase and you will be able to make better decisions and accomplish lot in life. Try following on a regular basis and in 2 to 4 weeks you will see some positive changes in your life. Stress is a by product of our modern life style. Due to chronic stress you have a negative chain of thought repeating in your mind. The wonderful new is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. 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 relive 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 floor 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. If you are open for online consultation to work on individualized plan and strategies feel free to book an audio consultation with me. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,
