Hello sir I'm sandeep l want to know how to concentrate on study and remember capacity of my mind.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You could be under some stress and you may not be aware of it. Meet with a counselor and deal with the stress to really enjoy good memory. Memory is preceded by concentration. Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. 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. 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. 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. 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 all junk food.

Please note if any physiological illness is ruled out, suggest to meet a qualified psychologist who can assess through standardized psychological testing and interviewing if your wife is meeting criteria of depression or not. In case testing and interviewing shows depression - then psychiatric medicine for depression would help. In case no - then this problem is best solved by taking services of a clinical hypnotherapist. It is based on guided relaxation to help client master in coping with problems and can also accelerate the healing process in many physiological problems. Hypnotherapy is one of the safest, quickest and most effective forms of treatment for the majority of psychological and emotional problems.

My choice does not match with that of my partner and so we often quarrel. What should we do about it?

Solutions that can save a relationship. Communication all relationship problems stem from poor communication, you can't communicate while you're checking your blackberry, watching tv, or flipping through the sports section" sex even partners who love each other can be a mismatch, sexually, lack of sexual self-awareness and education worsens these problems. But having sex is one of the last things you should give up" sex" brings us closer together, releases hormones that help our bodies both physically and mentally, and keeps the chemistry of a healthy couple healthy" problem-solving strategies: plan, plan, plan. Money problems can start even before the wedding vows are exchanged. They can stem, for example, from the expenses of courtship or from the high cost of a wedding. Problem-solving strategies: be honest about your current financial situation. If things have gone south, continuing the same lifestyle is unrealistic. Don't approach the subject in the heat of battle. Instead, set aside a time that is convenient and non-threatening for both of you. Acknowledge that one partner may be a saver and one a spender, understand there are benefits to both, and agree to learn from each other's tendencies. Don't hide income or debt. Bring financial documents, including a recent credit report, pay stubs, bank statements, policies, debts, and investments to the table. Don't blame. Construct a joint budget that includes savings. Decide which person will be responsible for paying the monthly bills. Allow each person to have independence by setting aside money to be spent at his or her discretion. Decide upon short-term and long-term goals. It's ok to have individual goals, but you should have family goals, too. Talk about caring for your parents as they age and how to appropriately plan for their financial needs if needed. Struggles over home chores most partners work outside the home and often at more than one job. So it's important to fairly divide the labor at home. Problem-solving strategies: be organized and clear about your respective jobs in the home" write all the jobs down and agree on who does what" be fair so no resentment builds. Be open to other solutions, she says if you both hate housework, maybe you can spring for a cleaning service. If one of you likes housework, the other partner can do the laundry and the yard. You can be creative and take preferences into account -- as long as it feels fair to both of you. Not making your relationship a priority if you want to keep your love life going, making your relationship a focal point should not end when you say" I do" relationships lose their luster. So make yours a priority. Problem-solving strategies: do the things you used to do when you first met. Show appreciation, compliment each other, contact each other through the day, and show interest in each other. Schedule time together on the calendar, say" thank you" appreciate" it lets your partner know that they matter. Conflict occasional conflict is a part of life. The same lousy situations keep repeating day after day -- it's time to break free of this toxic routine. When you make the effort, you can lessen the anger and take a calm look at underlying issues. Problem-solving strategies: you and your partner can learn to argue in a more civil, helpful manner. Make these strategies part of who you are in this relationship. Realize you are not a victim. It is your choice whether you react and how you react. Be honest with yourself. When you're in the midst of an argument, are your comments geared toward resolving the conflict, or are you looking for payback? if your comments are blaming and hurtful, it's best to take a deep breath and change your strategy. Change it up. If you continue to respond in the way that's brought you pain and unhappiness in the past, you can't expect a different result this time. Just one little shift can make a big difference. If you usually jump right in to defend yourself before your partner is finished speaking, hold off for a moments. You'll be surprised at how such a small shift in tempo can change the whole tone of an argument. Give a little; get a lot. Apologize when you're wrong. Sure it's tough, but just try it and watch something wonderful happen" you can't control anyone else's behavior" the only one in your charge is you" trust trust is a key part of a relationship. Do you see certain things that cause you not to trust your partner? or do you have unresolved issues that prevent you from trusting others? problem-solving strategies: be consistent. Be on time. Do what you say yent. Be sensitive to the other's feelings. You can still disagree, but don't discount how your partner is feeling. Call when you say you will. Call to say you'll be home late. Carry your fair share of the workload. Don't overreact when things go wrong. Never say things you can't take back. Don't dig up old wounds. Respect your partner's boundaries. Don? t be jealous. Be a good listener. Even though there are always going to be problems in a relationship you both can do things to minimize marriage problems, if not avoid them altogether. First, be realistic. Thinking your mate will meet all your needs -- and will be able to figure them out without your asking -- is a hollywood fantasy" ask for what you need directly" next, use humor -- learn to let things go and enjoy one another more. Finally, be willing to work on your relationship and to truly look at what needs to be done. Don't think that things would be better with someone else. Unless you address problems, the same lack of skills that get in the way now will still be there and still cause problems no matter what relationship you're in. Good luck.

My mother's age 56 years. She suffer with she heard some voices like crying, q&a, some deid.

Dear, these voices or noises (which others can't hear) are called delusions and these disorders are called delusional disorders. In your mother's case, if this is prominent and is available for some time, this could even be schizophrenia. I request you to consult a psychiatrist. Take care.

You could be looking down the barrel of a serious problem and you must meet with a counselor and a doctor immediately. These appear like mood swings, vacillating between anger and sadness. It can be a crippling condition if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a psychiatrist and seek his/her opinion and you must then follow the prescription completely. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime, you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger and sadness may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also, you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation are good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding of this condition. Please do not delay and do not get alarmed either.

Some people are mature and adjusting. Looks like your husband is not one of them. It is best to take a break from your involvement when things are going rough. If you really want to keep your marriage, you may just have to accept his behaviour. One thing is sure, it is never safe to disclose your past to your new partner. Most men will blame you for it and it is difficult for them to accept and move on.
