I am 30 years male, I have feel to short my memory and consideration act. So, please give me a suggestion to improve it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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, 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. 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.

Being concerned about ones health issues is not anxiety. Swimming more than your usual, means you crossed your usual physical limits, that is natural to create strain on your physical health. I think rest and relaxation should bring you relief. About your capacities, physical I assume, being less as compared to people of your age ma need some evaluation. Consult your physician for an assessment.

You can take proteins which are accpetable and not those given in gyms as they might contain small doses of steroids which will worsen your hypertension. All what is your BP, get it also treated apart from OCD.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, nice of you to be open about the issues you are facing. Your sleep time of 7 hours is adequate. This weekend spend sometime thinking about your goals in life. Keep your interests / hobbies and talents in mind and make short term and long term goals for yourself. Life is a great gift, and enjoy all the opportunities that come your way. Look at the obstacles as lessons you have to learn in life. Live your life according to the goals you have set. I wish you all the best. Do write back if you do want any further assistance.

It is not unusual in our society to not have strong marital relationship and most people do not focus on improving the same. Any relationship needs both focus and work of love to continue to be good. Marriage is no exception. There could be many reason like having a child or you also are working and busy wit house hold work. On top of this your in law issues. All these things drains you and you don't have time and energy left for your marriage. Similar thing cloud be possible for your husband. Right now you seem to be under lot of stress. If you could take few days off and go on a little holiday trip with your husband and son. Please do that. You both need to talk and understand each other and decide what is important for you. You may consult a marriage counselor who can help you work on I creasing positivity inna relationship and on an individual level. I understand that your son needs your focus attention ans love at the same time your relationship to. When I am saying you both need to talk. Inam not saying just blame each other and fight. I really want you to listen to each other deeply a d understand and make the bond of friendship stronger. My speciality is marriage and parenting. If you need any further advice or concrete guideline to be happy and content feel free to contact me. Wishing you very best.

Dear lybrate-user, memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. You have to convince him about why failing exams never is an end to the journey but it is just a beginning. There will be many exams in the future (including life related exams) and passing in every one of them is impossible. Take him for a psychological counseling. Take care.

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.

Hello. The word depression has become so common in small things also when something is not happening as they want they become depressed. So one needs to understand the depression with it symptoms. Pls if you can give more details it will b easy to help u. Proper counselling is required. Behaviour modifications can be done. Metaphor therapy can be used but before the proper history is needed. You can start with yoga for relaxing your mind.

I'm unable to remember what I read in studies, is there any stuff required to remember everything in reading like reading with subconscious mind or with complete concentration or by eating any dry foods which helps in remembering something like that. please show me the way which overcomes my problem.

You need a concentrative mind only and for it you have to make a routine of day to day plan of study. Make it as simple as you can handle. Do not eat fast food and don't drink tea, coffee and cold drinks try to eat healthy food eat sprouts, little quantity of dry fruits and simple dal chapaati and sabzi. You can do breathing and relaxation exercise to keep your self relax and fresh. You can do some brain games to improve your mind sharpness. Try to learn any musical instrument and any other language. Or you can play chess or doing drawing and colouring. It will make sharp your mind.

Modafinil is a good medication to keep you alert. But it is imperative for you to get investigated in detail if you tend to feel sleepy even after having 8-10 hours of sleep in the daytime. If the illness warrants use of Modafinil I guess any good psychiatrist would help you out.

People change, feelings change and relationships change. That's the rule of life. If the change is not good and in fact painful, then it's best to part ways while you still can. Learn from your experience about others and your self. You have a long life ahead of you to have good, stable and happy relationships. That said, try your best to work on your problems. But it needs to be done together. If both partners agree to solve their problems then the relationship can be saved. Try doing it in a peaceful and non-dramatic way.

If the lady doctor has examined her and told her about it, then there must be some relation of your mother's headache and menopause. Since your mother is a patient of depression, you can take her to a counsellor. A depression patient has many negative thoughts. Many of such negative thoughts get internalised and have negative effects on the body of the patient. This is known as psychosomatic pain/condition. Your mother might be having this. After talking to a counsellor, she will be relived of her suppressed negative thoughts and also emotional pain or trauma. This will help her in reducing her body pains. A counsellor will her help to modify her negative thought pattern. Counselling, along with medicines works very well with depression patients.

This is really wonderful that you want to help her at your age! I suppose she is younger than you and so I suspect that she is going through the last phase of her adolescence. This may last or may have already lasted two years only. After that it will subside but she should have resolved a lot of the problems of parental abuse by then. Otherwise she will carry all the negative traits into her adult life and then when it starts to degenerate, things could get bad. I therefore suggest that she talks to a counselor and see what that person can do in the circumstances. If that person wants to meet with the parents then that must happen too. You have to be patient and loving to her through all this. She should not feel rejected by you under any circumstances. In fact she may inadvertently try to make you reject her but you must not buy into that easily. After she resolves the issues she will be truly worth the wait and she will be able to love you passionately. She is right about her exercise: when she does vigorous exercise the energy of the anger will be expelled and she will feel a lot calmer. But this is a temporary solution and the more permanent one lies in sorting out the feelings she has accumulated over the years. You must be by her side and help her through all this. But I like you and may your tribe increase.
