I keep forgetting things very often. When I am told to something, I forget what I was doing previously and I make a lot of silly mistakes. How can I overcome this?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts (" leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a" morning person" or" evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

I want to quit smoking but I cudnt. I am so much addicted to smoking. If I cudnt smoke I feel something missing in me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will feel like that but it is not true that you cannot. You must try and try again and again until you succeed. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Upto an extent psychologist will be able to remove a particular traumatic incident from the brain with the help of hypnotherapy. More important is to overcome those thoughts. That can be easily done than employing hypnotherapy. Take care.

The effects of long-term benzodiazepine use include drug dependence as well as the possibility of adverse effects on cognitive function, physical health, and mental health. Benzodiazepines are generally effective when used therapeutically in the short-term. Most of the problems associated with benzodiazepines result from their long-term use. There are significant physical, mental and social risks associated with the long-term use of benzodiazepines. Although anxiety can temporarily increase as a withdrawal symptom, there is evidence that a reduction or withdrawal from benzodiazepines can lead in the long run to a reduction in anxiety symptoms. Due to these increasing physical and mental symptoms from long-term use of benzodiazepines, slowly withdrawing from benzodiazepines is recommended for many long-term users. Not everyone, however, experiences problems with long-term use. Some of the symptoms that could possibly occur as a result of a withdrawal from benzodiazepines after long-term use include emotional clouding, flu-like symptoms, nausea, headaches, dizziness, irritability, lethargy, sleep problems, memory impairment, personality changes, aggression, depression, social deterioration as well as employment difficulties, while others never have any side effects from long term benzodiazepine use. One should never abruptly stop using this medicine and should wean themself down to a lower dose under doctor supervision. While benzodiazepines are highly effective in the short term, adverse effects in some people associated with long-term use including impaired cognitive abilities, memory problems, mood swings, and overdoses when combined with other drugs may make the risk-benefit ratio unfavourable, while others experience no ill effects. In addition, benzodiazepines have reinforcing properties in some individuals and thus are considered to be addictive drugs especially in individuals that have a" drug-seeking" behavior; in addition, a physical dependence can develop after a few weeks or months of use. Many of these adverse effects of long-term use of benzodiazepines begin to show improvements three to six months after withdrawal. Other concerns about the effects of long-term benzodiazepine use, in some, include dose escalation, benzodiazepine abuse, tolerance and benzodiazepine dependence and benzodiazepine withdrawal problems. Both physiological tolerance and dependence can lead to a worsening of the adverse effects of benzodiazepines. Increased risk of death has been associated with long-term use of benzodiazepines in several studies, however, other studies have not found increased mortality. Due to conflicting findings in studies regarding benzodiazepines and increased risks of death including from cancer, further research in long-term use of benzodiazepines and mortality risk has been recommended. Most of the research has been conducted in prescribed users of benzodiazepines; even less is known about the mortality risk of illicit benzodiazepine users. The long-term use of benzodiazepines is controversial and has generated significant controversy within the medical profession. Views on the nature and severity of problems with long-term use of benzodiazepines differ from expert to expert and even from country to country; some experts even question whether there is any problem with the long-term use of benzodiazepines. However, if you are using benzodiazepines according to prescription and not overusing them, i. E. Not using as needed in increasing doses to relieve your anxiety, you are at no higher risk compared to other antidepressants.

Dear, watching porn videos occassionally is not a crime or you don't have to worry about that. If you watch many porn videos in a same day, then it can be called addiction. Are you addicted in that sense? also understand, this addiction is mind based. So instead of calling it an addiction, we call it impulse reaction. Impulse reaction is a mental disorder and not a mental disease. Psychotherapy should clear your impulse reaction and please stop worrying about it. Take care,

Dear lybrate user. You don't have to get irritated or depressed. You can talk to your parents regarding this. You can talk to your brother regarding this. Your brother might be ding this because he loves you and is trying to protect you. Understanding your brother better could solve your problem. I suggest counseling for both of you. Take care.

Sir /mam I would not be able to study more than half hour. What should I do? Please suggest me?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 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.

Hi last few days I am feeling a bit more nervous and restless in the morning. As day progresses, it eases off a bit. I am constantly thinking about death. What could be reason for it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hi last few days I am feeling a bit more nervous and restless in the morning. As day progresses, it eases off a bit. ...
There are two possibilities: if you are waking up nervous and restless, then the influences of dreams and the unconscious mind’s persuasions could be the cause; and if you get up and then feel this experience, then it is possible that the fear of facing the day, even if there was nothing to worry about, could be the culprit. In both these instances survival level fear and some insecurity could be behind the experience. Death could then be an escape from facing these major fears. Sunlight is fortunately an equalizer by the effect of light itself on the human being as an amazingly stimulating power, and as you move around getting into your chores, the energy levels spike and the biorhythm (which has three areas of influence: climbing energy levels, mood levels and metabolic rate) rises up to peak at 11 am. By this time I guess the fear subsides, primarily by the influence of daylight and sunlight. If all this I say is true, even remotely, meet with a counselor and explore the survival level fear and deal with it effectively. You should be well free of this disturbance. The morning effect is to be seen as a revelation from your system to draw your attention towards something really important that needs consideration.

The more you think about it the more this thought takes root in your mind. You already have proof that there's nothing actually. So just keep reminding yourself that there's nothing there. Mind can play tricks and a person can think anything which is not even real. So please rely on your brain and senses and learn to control your mind by teaching it to think about other things that are more important in life. So focus your attention on things which actually need your attention. Counselling can help you to reduce your fears and live productively in the present rather than the past or future.

Some medication to quit smoking so that one can just dislike to smoke a cigarette and or ganja/ charts.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Children pick up violent behaviour from their environment. Does he see violence in the house, school or on TV cartoons? Try to remove this cause first. If none of these are the reasons then you can take him to a counsellor to see what is going on with him. He will need to know how to communicate without showing anger and still get his needs met.

Doctor. If we keep our mind busy n positive then we can achieve anything no. N how to get mind very concentrated.

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Belief is a pre-requisite for achievement but a strong belief alone cannot make you achieve something. When you believe you can, you put in maximum effort. That takes you closer to your dream. However, there always are factors beyond one's control that help or keep us from executing our plan. More important than staying positive is to stay realistic. Know your potential, know your limitations and respect the factors beyond your control. Dreaming is good, but making plans and carrying them out one by one will take you closer to the dream. Also remember, failure is inevitable and not necessarily negative. It teaches us a lot. There are exercises available to improve your focus and attention. Games are available on every platform. Meditation also helps. Stay relaxed as much as you can. That is the most important.

Hi lybrate-user, sorry for the loss of your near ones. Its obvious to feel down. Please try these simple tips to get out of it. 1. Acceptance of fact. Everybody has to exit, its a fact and has to be accepted. 2. Try doing the activity you love to do. Like drawing painting, games, or any thing which you love to do for hours without getting bored. 3. Meet different people. This will bring new contacts and help you to get busy. Do not remain alone. 4. Try to meditate. This will help you focus on the present situation of life. Please follow it and share the response. Take care.
