Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc 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.

You can control your anger by taking those suggestions as complement and work hard in the direction of decreasing your weight so that one day all those people will feel proud of you----------------to control anger for that particular time, do not let those verbal comments engulf your mind because you really have a big problem of overweight and you should think and work positively in this direction---------------

Planning is important for every work. First divide the syllabus. How many chapters. Write on one note book. Write how many questions in each chapter. Start slowly with small questions. Then note down how many questions are you covered for one day. Based on your capacity you may plan how much time it will take then you will achieved. Without planning simply sit in the in the home and imaging unnecessarily about I am very lazy etc it is useless. Try the the work. Slowly solve in a systematic manner. Then you achieved be think always in a positive manner. Do not get depressed easily you have very good capacity use it in a proper manner. Ok best of luck.

Hello lybrate-user, You are probably feeling that there is no end to your problems and suicide seems like the only way out, but please understand that suicide is not your way out. There is help available. Please reach out to a psychiatrist and get help. Life is worth living you may not feel so now coz everything thing may seem negative to you but trust me ,hold on you won't regret it. Where ever you are reach out and get help. If you are on medication and it is not helping tell your doctor they can change it. There is a solution to all problems. You are right now only concentrating only on the problem look towards a solution. Try some of the following tips along with medication and it may help Tough times are a part of our life, sometimes we are unable to handle it leading to us becoming slaves to a lot of negativity. There are a few things you can try to  help tide over it. * Firstly stop being in denial   accept the situation stop getting angry and bargaining for something better, accept and tell yourself  I want to face this  and  I will do my best to deal with this.* What next? - calm down, think through and try to figure out what to do next? Start working on a solution for the issue rather than just focusing on the issue. * Solution may not come to you immediately but at least start working towards it one step at a time.  * To find solutions we should put ourselves in a third person perspective. Finding solutions is a lot easier this way. Remember that every problem has a solution. * Get help - do not shove away family, friends or any loved ones who are trying to help you. Seeking help does not make you weak. Try and discuss the issue with them to get an outsiders perspective. Since they are not a part of the problem they will be able to have 360 view of the issue and they may be able to help you better. * Positivity is important - it may seem like a difficult task but try to focus on the positive things happening in your life. Try to surround yourself with positive people, and people who see the good in you. * Don t give up   never give way for negativity to seep into your life. Stop yourself from focusing on negative thoughts and emotions.   Drugs/ alcohol - never look at drugs, alcohol, smoking or abuse of any kind as a solution for your problem, it only gives you a perception that things are fine, but the truth is, it only increases your problem. * No blame game - do not blame yourself or others for the problem. Blaming will not solve your situation. * Stay healthy- do not neglect your health. You need to be there for yourself too. Finally remember this too shall pass.

How to Cope with Anxiety and Depression Disorder

MD - Psychiatry, Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Sexologist, Mumbai
How to Cope with Anxiety and Depression Disorder

Unlike what you may think, anxiety is a common emotional response in a situation where we are worried about an outcome. It is, in fact, beneficial to us as it keeps us alert and charged for a reaction. Anxiety disorder, however, comes when you lose control over your reaction and let it take control of your life in a way that disables you from living a normal life. 
The first thing to do as a positive step is to accept that you have a disorder. Mental health problems are as big as physical problems. Just like the body needs to be treated to cure a disease, the mind too can be treated to cure you of your problems. The next thing to do is to know what type of disorder you are suffering from to get specific treatment for it.

Connection between anxiety and depression:
Anxiety is not just incessant worrying. It is sometimes an obsessive compulsive disorder that can takeover your life or a terrifying phobia that can prevent you from doing things that are routine for others. Over a period of time, living with such a disorder can take an emotional toll leading to depression.  Chance of developing depression in addition to anxiety is quite high. In fact, almost half of all people with major depression also suffer from severe and persistent anxiety. In many cases people suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety are also victims of depression.

Symptoms of anxiety and depression disorder
Constant fear and worry
Loss of interest in normal life, hobbies and activities
Insomnia and fatigue with inability to relax
Panic attacks
Feeling of sadness and worthlessness

Coping with anxiety and depression disorder
The first and most important thing to know is that both conditions are treatable and patients who get regular care, medication and support from friends and family can come back to living a normal life. Here are some of the treatments available:

1. Medication: Taking proper medication is very important as it acts quickly and is quite safe. Most people do not take medication, such as sleeping pills, fearing they might get addicted to them, which is a myth. Also, medications prescribed by your doctor are safe and specific that is why they have been prescribed.

2. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): It is used to first figure out what the cause behind the anxiety or depression. It is then used to teach people to manage their fears, anxieties, and depressive symptoms and also learn how to take control of their emotions. Another therapy used for treating depression is Emotive Behaviour therapy.

3. Lifestyle modification: In order to overcome, anxiety and depression, certain lifestyle changes are required, such as one should exercise daily at least for 30 minutes and eat a healthy diet.

4. Counselling: Counselling helps the person to overcome the oppressive thoughts and cope up with the feeling of worthlessness.

5. Group therapy: Knowing you are not alone with your pains and fears can often come as a big relief. Not only will the patient benefit from joining a local support group, the care giver will also learn how to cope with the developments of the disorder and how they can continue to provide care and support to their loved ones.

You should eat simple foods like vegetables and cow's milk, avoid tobacco products and reduce common tea and coffee which can cause vaso-constriction leading to headache. Anxiety and fear is due to disconnection from god, so re-connect with god by chanting, reading and hearing nice stories in your free time, thus avoid unnecessary thoughts, doubts and negative feelings by replacing negative feelings with higher taste of transcendental meditation.

10 Super Food To Boost Your Memory and Concentration

10 Super Food To Boost Your Memory and Concentration

It’s not only a sign of old age and dementia that we start forgetting things. It can happen to a person of any age, background, or health condition. There are children who, at times, have difficulty concentrating. On the other hand, there are people who forget some things on a daily basis, like their keys, wallet, cell phone, appointments, and many other things. Well, we believe that everything and everyone can be helped with a good diet. Here are 10 super foods that can help boost your memory and concentration.

1. Tea

Whether you choose to have black tea, green tea, or ordinary one, research has found all of them to be good for your brain. However, out of the above, green tea can be your best mate if you are looking for some quick results along with other benefits, like lowering LDL cholesterol, reduced risk of cancer, anti-aging, etc.

2. Green Leafy Vegetables

Vegetables like spinach, watercress, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli are amongst the best foods you can consume to boost your memory. These green leafy vegetables are rich in essential nutrients and minerals, including calcium, potassium, iron, and vitamins C, E, K, and B complex.

3. Nuts

Nuts are a rich source of vitamins E and B6 along with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These are also considered great antioxidants and have high nutritive value. Nuts are heart-friendly and also help boost your memory. You can include nuts like almonds, walnuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, etc. in your diet.
 

4. Whole Grains

Whole grain foods like whole pasta, oatmeal, and brown rice can be part of your regular meals as these are rich in glucose. These foods can also ward off the risk of diseases like diabetes, cancer, stroke, etc.
 

5. Caffeine

Believe it or not, caffeine is one of the foods that helps boost your memory and improves your concentration. It is found in energy drinks, chocolates, coffee, tea, and certain medications. It makes you energetic, too! Out of the above, coffee is considered best as moderate long-term use also reduces risk of diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes.
 

6. Soy

Foods like soymilk, tofu, etc. are rich in substances like choline, isoflavones, and lecithin. These substances have been known to slow down the process of memory loss and improve cognitive function.
 

7. Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits like avocado, oranges, grapefruits, lemons, etc. fortify your body’s self-defense mechanism and boost your memory. These are also rich in vitamin C and other essential nutrients.
 

8. Fish

Fish is one of the super foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. If you do not prefer eating fish, you can also stick to fish oil capsules. Fish like herring, sardines, and salmon can boost up your memory function and concentration power. These are also considered great for patients suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s.

9. Berries

Berries are one of the richest sources of flavonoids – the antioxidant that improves memory recollection. Stick to blueberries and give your brain some great power to memorize and recall.

10. Dark Chocolate

Good news for chocolate lovers; one more reason to have an extra bar! Dark chocolates are rich in antioxidants called flavonols that can help enhance cognitive function. Dark chocolates are also capable of increasing alertness and memory function.

Include these super foods in your regular diet and see the difference in your memory and concentration!

The multivitamins are good for other reasons but will not have any impact on this condition. You could be depressed. It is very important that you get into a routine by which I mean you need to follow a disciplined lifestyle. Please visit with a counselor first and that person will check how intense your situation is and decide whether you need medication also. Whatever happens, do not discontinue your therapy with the counselor. You must also work on your emotions and learn to express them appropriately. I suspect you have some deep-rooted sadness that needs to be dealt with. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, 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. Get into a healthy routine, and do some fixed activities that are interesting, and involve people in your life every day.

My wife is having multiple personality disorder, she turns very dangerous if she don't take pills, it's hard to live with her, please guide me well.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The multiple personality can create multiple problems. It is a very complex disease and without knowing much of her background, I suppose you might be her only hope and solace. Since you are married to her and for several years perhaps too, you are the only person who has reached this level of intimacy with her. That could be the nemesis too but if you undertook to see her through her worst phase, then you could have a reasonable life with her. One thing is very clear and it seems like you have understood that too, is her strict adherence to the medical prescriptions. That is mandatory and that is important for you to personally monitor; and periodically take her for psychiatric reviews. Apart from that she needs intense psychotherapy with a dedicated professional competent in dealing with this condition. There will be a lot of follow-up from this therapy and again I see you taking an active role. If her parents or siblings are around or can come and relieve you periodically, that will give you welcome breaks that will be tremendously good to recharge yourself. The professional is sure to put her on a regimen of exercise, both physical and neurological, a tight time-schedule filled with important and interesting activities, and a socializing program. Consider this a lifetime task and you must dedicate yourself to it completely, if you want to spend a reasonable time with her for the rest of your lives.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Stress - 8 Natural Ways to Burst It!

Ayurveda, Faridabad
Stress - 8 Natural Ways to Burst It!

Stress, the new buzzword, has become an inevitable part of our lives. Take any of today’s diseases, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, cancer, sleep disorders, indigestion, infertility, depression, memory loss, migraines, etc. All of them have a common contributing factor stress.

Ayurveda believes that health is the result of balance maintained between the three elements or doshas, vata, pitta, and kapha. An imbalance between these 3 components is the main cause of ill health. Different diseases have one of these as predominant factor. Stress disrupts the balance and so contributes to various diseases. Managing stress is one of the keys to maintaining good health and thereby avoiding a lot of lifestyle related disorders.

Read on to know and understand some of the simple but effective ways of maintaining stress.

  1. Yoga Asanas: While yoga, in general, is believed to calm the mind and reduce stress, shava asana (corpse pose) sarvanga asana (Shoulder stand), hala asana (plough pose), simha asana (lion pose) and shalabhasana (locust pose) are greatly beneficial in reducing stress.
  2. Take a break: A break to break away from the mundane routine helps. Try doing nothing for a short while and see how this practice calms the nervous system and provides a clear state of mind.
  3. Mind your mind: Stress is often caused by fear of what might happen. Changing attitude to a positive one can go a long way in reducing overall stress.
  4. Analyse your stressors: If you can change it, go ahead and change it. If you cannot, change the way you react to it or simply ignore it. It is definitely not possible to have control over all things in life. Learning this helps greatly in managing stress.
  5. Meditation: Using Om, take deep breaths and focus on air moving through the lungs and the body. This can be done anywhere and leaves you with a calm mind and body. Pranayama also increases the flow of oxygen to all parts of the body and relaxes you completely.
  6. Hand it down: The ends of the finger have pressure points which act as energy channels for the body. The padding at the end of the thumb and the middle portion of the index finger are linked to the brain and can be stimulated to manage stress. Most yoga asanas use this hand posture.
  7. Warm baths: Add some ginger juice and baking soda to the bucket of hot water. This improves circulation and helps you in feeling light, with elevated mood.
  8. Herbal teas: These are, simply put, magical. Substances like chamomile, tulsi, basil, jasmine, Brahms, cardamom, etc. provide a soothing effect on the mind and body. The aroma and taste of these leave you feeling elated, with the stress disappearing with their vapours. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.
