Follow these simple steps to ensure a good sleep every night and stay away from sleep disorders and other health problems associated with unhealthy sleep habits: 1) maintain a regular sleep routine go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help relaxed and de-stressed. Sleep well live healthy and live longer. If you have tried all these and still have problems, please consult me for prescription medication.

There are only 24 hours in a day and it' s recommended that you divide each day so that you are able to work, relax, sleep, exercise, socialise etc. If you are not doing this on a regular basis, then stress creeps into life. You need to design your life along these principals and decide what is best for you. These days, this balance is lost and is the basic reason for stress in life. Counselling helps you to bring in balance into your life by helping you to decide what is your expectations and dreams about life and if you are in line with this.

My body is too weak. I don't know y but it was too weak. My hands are shaking all the time. I use to smoke ciggrates. Does. It is reason for that.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hye, Thanks for the query. Weakness is due to poor nutrition and shaking of hands is a withdrawal symptom of smoking. It is important to know that just eating two heavy meals a day will not fulfill your nutrient needs. Most often we skip meals especially when at work or in college. We start our day on empty stomach but our work or stress or activity is never reduced. This causes weakness and lack of energy levels. Food is our source of energy and if you don't eat well as per your needs you are going to get deficient in many nutrients. So, start by eating the right foods at the right time. Eat meals at frequent intervals. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Sleep well.    Exercise at least thrice a week.

My brother is not concentrating in his studies he can't learn long answers. What he want to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He may be going through the onset of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which will cause a lot of distractions. Even so he can continue some stretching and light weight training to guide the energy to desirable directions. During this time the body will grow faster than usual. This spurt in growth will take away all the energy and make him feel exhausted. If not he may not be interested in his study course for various reasons in which case I recommend that he does an aptitude course and seek career guidance and opt for a course that is close to his heart and natural talents. Also at this age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting his ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time he could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: he will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, he will become sexually active, and he will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact his memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But he may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if he goes to a gym, let him ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else he is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that the 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. He needs to check out if he is stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if he combines the two modes, he 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 he gets bored, study by writing. If he repeats learning at least five to seven times, he 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 his left nostril and breathe, move his 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 his teacher will be able to guide him with. If the home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect his memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too.

How to quit smoke? its not easy as I thought. I tried many times but I cant? so any tips which make me quit smoke as soon as possible.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It only feels like so. But if you make up your mind and follow some strategies, you will be able to give it up for good. You have certainly made a good decision and you can go about it in the following manner. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join smokers anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here? s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

I feel tensed when things not happen in our way, particularly in night think lot about those things

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
A lot of things will not happen your way in life. This is normal. As you are getting upset about this, it could be that you have control issues. You see, we would all love to take matters into our hands and know for sure that it gets done, accordingly. But that would be too easy whereas life is difficult, actually. So it is in your best interest that all things do not happen as per your wish and that every situation must and will be a challenge, mostly. You need to learn to accept this fact of life and live with it. The way to achieve this is recommended by scott m. Peck in his book, the road less travelled: discipline. He says don? t try to change the fact of the difficulty but instead adopt discipline as a tool. He suggests four tools: cultivate the ability to delay gratification; be dedicated to the truth; accept responsibility; and develop flexibility and balance. These are very practical and effective. Why get tense when life is like this any way! instead, learn to cope with the above mentioned tools. If control is an issue for you, you are probably very scared and do not trust; therefore the need to control from fear. Deal with your fear and you will also be fine with letting things be. A counselor will certainly help you much in this pursuit.

Hi, feels like you do it under impulsion- without giving it a thought. Overspending can lead to piles of debt and zero savings. Stopping yourself from spending money can be difficult, but with the right approach, it’s possible to stop spending money and save it instead. Compulsive shopping is considered an addiction. So talking to a professional therapist or going into a support group for compulsive shoppers are both important ways you can address the issue and work to resolve it. During therapy, you may identify the underlying issues behind your compulsive spending and acknowledge the dangers of over spending. Therapy can also offer healthy alternative ways to cope with your emotional issues. You can consult with me too. All the best.

At your age some children will experience memory problems because of hormonal imbalances and its accompanying distractions. You may also be under some stress. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. 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.

There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.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. 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 junk food.

I have a problem in speech from childhood. When I speak I struck at the few words which makes my speech difficult. But when I sing I doesn't struck. How to cure this problem.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

Stammering can be made lesser only and only by Speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, I'd suggest you to visit a Psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

I am 18 year old student. I am studying in class 12th. I have poor memory. So suggests diet and exercise to keep my brain sharp.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Here are several you might try. 1. Keep learning A higher level of education is associated with better mental functioning in old age. Experts think that advanced education may help keep memory strong by getting a person into the habit of being mentally active. Challenging your brain with mental exercise is believed to activate processes that help maintain individual brain cells and stimulate communication among them. Many people have jobs that keep them mentally active, but pursuing a hobby, learning a new skill, or volunteering for a project at work that involves a skill you don?t usually use can function the same way. 2. Use all your senses The more senses you use in learning something, the more of your brain will be involved in retaining the memory. In one study, adults were shown a series of emotionally neutral images, each presented along with a smell. They were not asked to remember what they saw. Later, they were shown a set of images, this time without odors, and asked to indicate which they?d seen before. They had excellent recall for all odor-paired pictures, and especially for those associated with pleasant smells. Brain imaging indicated that the piriform cortex, the main odor-processing region of the brain, became active when people saw objects originally paired with odors, even though the smells were no longer present and the subjects hadn?t tried to remember them. So challenge all your senses as you venture into the unfamiliar. 3. Believe in yourself Myths about aging can contribute to a failing memory. Middle-aged and older learners do worse on memory tasks when they?re exposed to negative stereotypes about aging and memory, and better when the messages are positive about memory preservation into old age. People who believe that they are not in control of their memory function ? joking about ?senior moments? too often, perhaps ? are less likely to work at maintaining or improving their memory skills and therefore are more likely to experience cognitive decline. If you believe you can improve and you translate that belief into practice, you have a better chance of keeping your mind sharp. 4. Prioritize your brain use If you don?t need to use mental energy remembering where you laid your keys or the time of your granddaughter?s birthday party, you?ll be better able to concentrate on learning and remembering new and important things. Take advantage of calendars and planners, maps, shopping lists, file folders, and address books to keep routine information accessible. Designate a place at home for your glasses, purse, keys, and other items you use often. 5. Repeat what you want to know When you want to remember something you?ve just heard, read, or thought about, repeat it out loud or write it down. That way, you reinforce the memory or connection. For example, if you?ve just been told someone?s name, use it when you speak with him or her: ?So, John, where did you meet Camille?? 6. Space it out Repetition is most potent as a learning tool when it?s properly timed. It?s best not to repeat something many times in a short period, as if you were cramming for an exam. Instead, re-study the essentials after increasingly longer periods of time ? once an hour, then every few hours, then every day. Spacing out periods of study is particularly valuable when you are trying to master complicated information, such as the details of a new work assignment.
