Hi, Don't panic. Everyone feels the same. Keep studying with faith in yourself and complete studying portions with devotion and leave the rest to God. You will succeed. Don't worry even if you think you can't Remember. Every one feels the same. Rest assured you practise searching answers for questions. You practise. You will get over the negative feelings. Good Luck

I can not concentrate on studies. Once I studied I can remember that for 1or 2 days. Give me some tips.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

I'm not getting urge /desire to eat food correctly may be because of no sleep on timely basis. 5. I always feel to masturbate and I do it many times a day. I request you to suggest me what routine I have to follow in night shift and what do's and don't? I want to improve my physic and look good by gaining some wait.

Hi lybrate-user, first of all - you can have nutrigain its safe. Secondly, you should exercise daily in the morning- some kind of workout in gym or aerobics or brisk walk, jogging etc. Thirdly, eat every two hours- every two hours fill your stomach but with something healthy like dry fruits or a plain fruit - banana or apple. I know its tough but try to follow it. Tell me do you feel stressed or some kind of anxiety that can be related to the sweat you experience in hands and legs but do not worry that does not contribute to weight loss but for that you have to keep yourself hydrated and have enough water. You can have some syrup that increases hunger. Ask for it. Make a routine and stick to it. Sleep on time and get up on same time daily unless a routine is made it will be hard for body clock to adjust every time. You are in office for good 12 hours-7 hours you must be sleeping, in remaining hours I wonder how many times you masturbate. Masturbation is a problem unless you are feeling any difficulties. To properly channelize your energy you need to get productive, sweat it out in gym and get your lifestyle sorted. Eat more protein and if you are non veg - fish. Consult for any query. All the best.

How can we maintain a relationship with in a good manner. I face problems to do so.

M.Sc. - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Coimbatore
When comes to relationship, it does not mean that you and the holder of the relationship should share the same thoughts and values. Most people are having the relationship with opposite views and opinions, as like" opposite poles attracts each other" if having same views or opposite, just start understand them. Know their sensitive area. When you are problem with holding relationship it might be something you have tested their sensitive area. Start valuing their emotions, spend some time with them, share your views in an assertive way. Among all those things the main thing that you have to do is to address their emotions and views.

I want to quit smoking. I ve started smoking a year ago. Since new year I am trying to quit it. I can control it for a week but after a week I can't control myself and I go and smoke a cigarette. I want to quit it completely. What do I do?

General Physician, Mumbai
Smoking is toxic to your body, mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit, the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of smoking can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. In place of smoking, spend your time by doing yoga and chant the names of god who you have faith in. It has been scientifically proved that by doing yoga and chanting, the habit of smoking can be stopped. By chanting with love, soon you would be swimming in an ocean of pleasure which is million times greater than flickering pleasure of intoxicants like tobacco, nicotine etc, and automatically the attraction to the low taste of smoking would stop.

Is it possible for periods to get delayed fr as long as 15 days, if a girl is under stress or depression?

Is it possible for periods to get delayed fr as long as 15 days, if a girl is under stress or depression?
Emotional and physical stress can affect the menstrual cycle and delay the period. Stress decreases hormone signals originating in the brain. This results in the failure of the ovary to release an egg. This causes an imbalance in the ovarian hormones estrogen and progesterone. So yes, stress and depression can be one of the reasons for a missed period. Regards,

How's your concentration?

We all know what concentration means: giving your close, undivided attention to something.

But it's one thing to know what it means and another to be able to concentrate on your studies!

Many students complain that they just can?t concentrate, in other words, their minds race from one thing to another and their thoughts are all over the place - except on their studies. If you feel like this, you?re not alone. But what?s to be done?

Firstly, you should know that everyone has the ability to concentrate: think of a time when you were totally engrossed in something you really enjoyed, for example a movie, a book, a game of rugby or netball. You can concentrate: the trick is to use the right strategies to unlock your natural ability to concentrate and apply these to your studies.

Tips and strategies to improve your concentration

Choose the right place to study

Your choice of study space can influence your level of concentration. So, to promote concentration:

Choose a dedicated study space in an environment conducive to study.
Make sure you have a good chair, a table or desk, somewhere to store your books, a PC, adequate lighting, and good ventilation.
Make sure your study space is tidy, organised and a pleasant place in which to work.
Put a 'Do not disturb' sign on the door.
Leave your cell phone outside or turn it off.
If you like music in the background, that?s okay, as long as it?s not a distraction. (Research on productivity with music versus without music is inconclusive.)

Draw up a study timetable and stick to it.
Accommodate your day/night-time energy levels.
Get into a routine and make study a habit.
Divide your work into logical sections that have a beginning and an end: our brains are holistic and you?ll find it easier to work on something that forms a whole than something that's left hanging midway.
Set yourself a time limit before you start, for example: 'I?ll summarise Chapter 2 in 40 minutes'
- By doing this, you're setting yourself a goal and,
- when you set a time limit, your subconscious mind starts working on completing the task in the time available.
Study for about 30-45 minutes, review what you?ve learned, then take a 5-10 minute break. Why? Because research has shown that we
- remember best when we study for shorter periods, and then recap and consolidate what we have learnt, as opposed to longer periods when we have to struggle to stay focused and alert.
- learn better at the beginning and end of a study period. (Think of a movie: it?s often easier to remember the beginning and the end than the middle). So, take regular breaks and build lots of beginnings and ends into your study.

Before you begin studying, take a few minutes to think about what you?ll achieve.
Write down your goals for the study period, i.E. Summarise pages 40-65, complete the outline of Assignment 1.
Make sure you have everything you need: your notes, stationery, water, a healthy snack, etc.
Use active learning to keep you focused.
If you have a lot of reading to get through, try the SQ3R method.
Build in variety

Change the subject or study strategy every few hours ? this will lessen the chance of your becoming bored and stale.
Use your study break for exercise (or perhaps housework); this changes the pace and helps to get rid of extra adrenalin.
Alternate reading with more active learning exercises, for example: mindmapping or writing model answers.
Just say 'Stop'

Every time you notice your thoughts wandering, tell yourself to 'stop' and then consciously bring your thoughts back to your studies.
Repeat this each time your mind wanders, and re-focus.
Initially, you might have to do this many times each study session but with practice, you'll find that you are able to focus for longer periods at a time.
If you find it almost impossible to re-focus, it could be that you need a break:
- Take a five-minute break, have a glass of water, and try again.
- You could also try switching to another subject or topic, or using a different study strategy.
Don't waste your time and energy trying to stop yourself from thinking of something, that?s almost impossible. Instead, write your thoughts down on a piece of paper and put it aside to deal with during your ?worry time?! (See below.)
Schedule worry time

Allow yourself to worry but only at certain set times during the day.
Decide beforehand when and for how long you?re going to worry, for example: set aside ten minutes 'worry time' before Shortland Street (or whatever your favourite programme is). Then, when something distracts you while you're studying, or if you start to feel anxious about something during the day, write your thoughts down and set them aside, telling yourself you?ll deal with them during your 'worry time.
It?s important to write your 'worries' down - it?s far easier to refocus on your studies if you know you won?t forget whatever it is that?s troubling you.
Stick to your worry time(s) and use the whole time you set aside. If you don?t have enough to worry about to fill the time, make a conscious decision to reduce the length of your worry time.
Keep a list of your worries ? if something keeps coming up, deal with it! Rather spend some time sorting the issue out than allowing it to keep distracting you and preventing you from reaching your goals.
Learn actively

Last, but definitely not least, to help you concentrate and remember, learn actively. Active learners do something with what they have learnt. They

put what they have learnt into their own words.
compare what they are learning with what they already know.
link new facts to what they already know.
apply what they are learning to their own situation, and
use the new information.

Just do this small exercise: Sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall straight up, making 90 degree angle for 5 mins. Its better you do in early morning, else you can do it anytime. This will make your blood flow increased towards brain and increase your memory and physical strength too will be increased. And try to have Naturamore Male powder 1 spoon in morning and evening as it has all nutrients supplements that our body needs which will give you relief. If you having problem in getting it, just let me know, I will send you. Still if you have any queries, please ask. Take care. :)

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

My partner is over possessive. He does not like me talking to anyone. I cannot have male friends. If I miss his phone calls he starts shouting and crosses all limits of decency gets into verbal abuse. Please suggest what can be done to cure this and how.

This is not sounding like a good relationship, and your partner’s insecurity is going to be a problem, if you have not given him any cause. You must both go for relationship counseling and work out the insecurity. If he feels inferior to you for whatever reasons, then he could identify them and work on them to separate some fact from fiction too. If you on the other hand behave in a way to induce the insecurity because of your ways, perhaps you are more extroversive and jovial and free with boys etc, then these must be curtailed and sorted out for the good of the relationship. If his insecurity is unfounded then there may be a serious problem and if he does not work on it you may have to take a call. Abuse and lack of respect are not good signs of a relationship that is not yet in marriage. I shudder to think of what can transpire, later. So have a good talk to him and have him and you seek professional help before it gets worse and you are too far into the relationship to back out!

At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. The things you do are mere distractions and will have temporary effects only.
