Following tips will exactly help you achieve what you desire. Dear student for concentration and memory try following things on a daily basis and you will see positive results. Concentration is a mental skill that you can develop. There are two ways to improve your concentration: first, raise your brain's natural ability to concentrate. In other words, increase your attention. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier. To improve your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it can be worth it. In my personal experience with students. This can make noticeable improvement in a relatively short time. Ideas for daily concentration-boosting habits include: mindfulness meditation - many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Focusing on your breathing, known as mindfulness meditation, is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. Proper sleep -i am sorry to say it. Pulling all nighter will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be. Brain game -. The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not the score in the game! eat healthier - your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. 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. Exercise is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing focus. At-least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Optimize your mental state & environment in addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine, also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying. Create a study spot. Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed. Remove distractions. Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with talk radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration. Block background noises. If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking. Use time boxes. Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time. Stay motivated with rewards. If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing one hour of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to. Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind. Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also.

Hello Sahil Bansal first start overcoming from depression “ I feel ‘trapped’ inside the negative thoughts and have 0 motivation for anything. It’s an effort to do anything and I really fear that I will never be normal. “ This is a descriptive symptom of depression. And so is the fear that you are feeling. These things will be greatly diminished or even disappear if and when you receive treatment for what is making you sick. Normal lives are ONLY EVER led by people who recognize when they are sick and do something about it. If they break a leg, they go to the doctor to get help. If it is a bad break, then they ask for the best treatment they can get. Your life is definitely worth this much effort. You have a chemical imbalance in your brain that makes you feel really bad. You feel as though your hands are tied. BUT THEY ARE NOT. You must ignore how you feel, and do what I say to you, and that you now know is correct: Get help, recieve the best treatment and get better. It is so much easier and so much better to get help now than it was even just 10 years ago. So much more is understood. Be the smart person I believe you are. Find a doctor and tell them what you have said to me. You definitely CAN feel better by DOING this. follow these steps for overcoming from depression............. The reason you are having a lot of negative thoughts is because your mind is idle. The reason your mind is idle is because you don't have energy to do anything. The reason you don't have energy to do anything is because you are channeling the bulk of your energy into suppressing your emotions, as a result of your negative thoughts. Negative thoughts -> negative emotions -> use energy to suppress emotions -> no energy to do anything else -> mind is idle -> more negative thoughts The fear that you will not be normal is one such negative thought. It's all connected, but it can be hard to see when you're in the thick of it. It's all one big haze, one neverending cloud of darkness. The first thing to realise is that you cannot trust your own thoughts. That's scary, I know. But when you're in the midst of a depressive episode, you cannot trust your own mind. That means some of the things that your mind thinks are real, some are not, and you are unable to differentiate which is which. In such times when you can't even trust your own mind, who can you trust? your parents your spouse your best friend your therapist Pick one or two, and trust that person’s words over your own, against your better judgement because during these times, your judgement is impaired. The second thing to do is to reduce the number of thoughts that come to mind. Remember, the reason you have so many is because your mind is idle. Give your mind something to do. I highly encourage going out into the sun and doing some vigorous exercise. Sunlight and exercise and great ways to lift the cloud of darkness around you, for physiological reasons. You may feel like you don't have energy. This is a negative thought your mind feeds you with and it is lying to you. You have in you to do it. Once you give your idle mind something to do, it will produce fewer negative thoughts. This creates fewer negative emotions, and you will channel less energy towards suppressing them. This frees up more energy for you. Use this to see a therapist. Learn new skills, such as how to manage your emotions better. Third, learn what are the triggers that cause a depressive episode to occur and avoid them. Depression is a sign that the way you've been living your life thus far isn't working. Hence, you need to change some things in your life. Start with your triggers. They are the most obvious signs. To recap: ONE: Realise you can't trust your own mind. Find someone you can trust. TWO: Reduce the number of negative thoughts by giving your mind something to do. Vigorous exercise highly encouraged. THREE: Learn what triggers your depressive episodes. Remember, depression is a self-defense mechanism telling you that the way you've been living your life isn't working. To get out of depression requires a lifestyle change. Don't be under the illusion that this will be a simple change of sleeping time. Likely there are multiple factors that have contributed to your depression. You may have to change your job, your diet, your sleeping habits, your exercise routine, your religion, and/or the people you hang out with. Step by step. Bit by bit. You'll be a new person at the end of this. A better person. thank you all the best

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Hello sir/mam. I love to watch my girlfriend while sex with other. This is my fantasy want to see her sex with other one and in middle I also join. I talked to my gf regarding this. Initially she was not ready but now she turns on when we talk about two men one women intercourse fantasy. She is ready to get sex by two person she is excited too much. Should we go for this? she is my life and I am her life we love each other. We are in a relationship from last 12 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The idea is exciting and may be a huge turn on. If she is your life and you are hers, why would you want to expose it to possibilities! You will put your 12 year relationship to risk and the love of your life too. Let me explain: once this is carried out there is a grave danger that this friend of yours might be more impressive in the bed and she may love that too much to want to give up! Strange things happen when passions are whipped up: she may fall endlessly in love with him and you may be conveniently eased out. He may fall in love with her and look to eliminate you by whatever means he chooses; love being as blind as it is known to be! After this experience she has a choice to make to be with one or the other at her whim, and many things can go wrong with that. You can be in charge of your emotions but never of another. The respect you have for each other and your bodies is now subject to anyone?s carnal desires. Anyway these things do not last and the end result may not look at all what you desired. You need to respect and preserve this relationship with a lot of regard and sanctity and not objectify your girlfriend?s body or her character to such fleeting whims. The choice is yours and my opinion is that it is ill-advised. Just because an idea is fantastic and turns one on does not mean it is safe for many reasons.
