How to memorize what I read I mean regarding subjects , i generally forget the things .

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Do the following diligently: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. 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. 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. 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you 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 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too. 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 sugar and junk food.

How to Overcome Snoring

MBBS, D.P.H
General Physician, Gurgaon
How to Overcome Snoring

1. Loose weight. Can reduce fatty tissue in the back of the throat and decrease or even stop snoring.

2. Exercise can also help to stop snoring. As well aiding weight loss, exercising your arms, legs, and abs, for example, also leads to toning the muscles in your throat, which in turn can lead to less snoring.

3. Quit smoking. Smoking irritates the membranes in the nose and throat which can block the airways and cause snoring.

4. Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, and sedatives because they relax the muscles in the throat and interfere with breathing.

5. Establish regular sleep patterns. Create a healthy bedtime ritual with your partner and stick to it.

6. Clear nasal passages. If you have a stuffy nose, rinse sinuses with saline before bed. If you have allergies, reduce dust mites and pet dander in your bedroom or use an allergy medication. Pt nasoclear nasal drop inboth nostril before sllep.

7. Keep bedroom air moist. Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat, so if swollen nasal tissues are the problem, a humidifier may help.

8. Change your sleeping position. Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing and encourage your tongue and jaw to move forward. Sleep on your side instead of your back.

 9. Try an anti-snoring mouth appliance.

10 throat exercises to prevent snoring

A. Repeat each vowel (a-e-i-o-u) out loud for three minutes a few times a day

B. Place the tip of your tongue behind your top front teeth. Slide your tongue backwards for three minutes a day.

C. Close your mouth and purse your lips. Hold for 30 seconds.

D. With mouth open, move jaw to the right and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat on left side.

E. With mouth open, contract the muscle at the back of your throat repeatedly for 30 seconds.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help.

When you have decided that itself indicates that you are motivated now; may be because you are facing some problems due to smoking or you might have been educated. In either of the circumstances please get yourself completely know the serious problems arising out of it.

Hi, I am a regular smoker I have been smoking from last 5 years I guess but yesterday something unusual happened with me as I came home after smoking. I saw blood coming out of my nose is that a serious issue or it happens with everyone?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is serious and must be investigated to know what is the damage and the likely cause. You have been smoking from the age of 15 years and so the damage for teenagers is more because your nerves were still forming and completing its formation. You have not mentioned the quantity of cigarettes consumed but it is certain to have increased over the years to be in excess. You need to stop smoking immediately and visit the doctor to check on this bleeding.

She is not feeling well due to some external reasons like breakup from her boyfriend her mind is completely thinking about that and how to get her to normal stage?

She is not feeling well due to some external reasons like breakup from her boyfriend her mind is completely thinking ...
It looks like she is pining for him after the break up. You could help her analyze why they had this fallout? If it her fault, then she needs to apologize and see if he is amenable. If not she may have done something quite unforgivable. In any relationship there must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. Now whatever went wrong and if it cannot be helped, then she has to leave all this far behind. Good friends, like you, can make a huge difference by distracting her, making her feel worthy, lovable and above all to not become too negative. If you see that she has serious problems about the break up please take her to a counselor and make sure that she follows that person’s advice. Help her remove all associations of his: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get him out of her system, not mind. Help her keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to her old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a boy friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with him. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do help her to get back with them and get into good social circles. They will help her get over him. Do not let her talk ill or malign her ex to his friends or to him, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect his reputation and treat him with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for her, do meet up with a counselor and talk about her feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and he is not the only boy in life. She will find another but teach her not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time she needs to choose wisely and behave like a true lady. You must help her do that and improve her self-belief.

World Autism Awareness Day 2015

World Autism Awareness Day aims to increase people's awareness about people, especially children, with autism. The day often features educational events for teachers, health care workers and parents, as well as exhibitions showcasing work created by children with autism.

Find social interaction difficult.
Have problems with verbal and non-verbal communication.
Demonstrate restrictive and repetitive behavior.
Have a limited set of interests and activities.

Autism affects girls and boys of all races and in all geographic regions and has a large impact on children, their families, communities and societies

Dear lybrate user. You are misunderstanding. Ayurvedic medicines also has its own side effects. More over for depression, there is no direct ayurvedic medicines. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

Alcohol and drugs are very addicting and withdrawal from these have very serious consequences. Due to strong craving and serious withdrawal effects, it is always advised to quit these substance under supervision of a doctor. You should take professional services of a psychiatrist/de-addiction center. I have treated many patients like this and they are spending drug free and alcohol free life now without any difficulty. You may also have the same life.

Hello Lybrate user. Try the following 1.Pay attention to your breathing—don't hold your breath 2. Challenge negative thinking and unrealistic expectations 3.Get moving—short bursts of movement, several times a day, can reduce anxiety 4. Use sensory input, such as relaxing and uplifting music, to calm yourself 5. Challenge your fear of others by making face-to-face contact with friendly people. 6.Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has been shown to work the best for treating social anxiety disorder. 7.Medication is helpful with counselling. Consult a psychiatrist for the same.
