You are probably distracted die to some stress which you need to identify soon. Retaining information to be recalled at will is the role of memory. For which you need to do the following: 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. Good social contacts are good for memory too: so make and keep good friends. 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.

Dear madam, I have done a lot of mistakes in my life. And didn't study well. So jobless. We r two sisters. Always it is in my mind that if I won't work how I LL see my parents in future. Bt as I hav neglected so much always depressed over were to start. Moreover my in laws r pathetic. whatever ill they say that only goes in my mind very now and then. Consciously or unconsciously. To overcome it I sleep maximum tym. No regularity in life. My husband is very supportive in every case. Bt his encouragement always beaten my so called uncontrolled negative thoughts. I have become mean. Bt already I am 27. I get angry so easily. If ever I talk to someone I love I get irritated. I don't feel normal and cool. I behave very bad in anger. I am very frustrated. I know if I get a job everything will b fine. Bt for tat wer to start and wen I LL get. Moreover to give birth a kid is an additional pressure. I love baby. Bt I just don't want it coz of anyone's want or self. I want it to complete my family. Bt nt under pressure or in such frustrating mindset of mine. I qualify all qualities of depression as far as I have surfed net. Bt always think tat will power can make it better. Bt truly I have gone to frustration, lethargy, negativity all at once. I don't sleep at nights. All negative thats come. I have become scared. Many a times I become emotional and cry like anything. I am scared of consulting any doctor or medicine because my mother is a patient of depression and medicine makes person robot. C is fine now bt not like the old one. please help doctor.

I appreciate your openness and your acceptance of your perceived mistakes. I also think that it is wise to sort out your emotions before you have a baby. Now, please understand that we all make mistakes in life. We have to see that we don't repeat the mistakes and learn from past experiences. Also, you need to forgive yourself for your past mistakes. Remember -" if one door closes, another one opens" - if you think you did not study well, you may try to find an occupation which is related to your hobby e. G. If you love to paint - start something on your own which involves painting work, or if you are health conscious, learn yoga so that you yourself can become a trainer. Because by doing this you will start earning money and then your concern about how to look after your parents will get sorted out. If your mother is a depression patient, don't think that your condition will be like her. You two are different individuals and are likely to have different life problems. Technology and medicines have advanced a lot, since your mother's time. So don't think that if you go to a doctor, you will become like your mother. But if you think you need help and if you don't go to a doctor, in time, then certainly you are inviting trouble. If you seriously feel that you are sad most of the times, the please talk to a counsellor/psychologist who will help you in finding the cause of your depresssion and will also help in assessing your depression. Talking to a counsellor will help you in managing your anger and other negative thoughts. Don't rely on the internet for final diagnosis, it is good only to have basic information. You are not able to sleep at night, because probably you are sleeping a lot during day time. Your in-laws may have sensed that somehting is not ok with you or you are not happy, and hence may be worried about you and your husband and your future. Kindly seek professional help. Take care.

Dear Brinda, It is a good decision to taper off clonazepam. If you have started taking it for relief from anxiety, please practice few relaxation techniques. In that way, you can keep your anxiety to an optimum level to function properly.

Hi. I am 27 years old male single. I cannot control my anger. And whenever I get angry or falls into any kind of arguments my heart beats very fast and hand and legs starts to shiver. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The physical reactions you describe indicate that you could be really scared but acting angry to cover it up. The fear is an energy sapping feeling, whereas the anger supplies energy! that is why many people act angry when they are really sacred. If that is true for you too, look into that and talk to a counselor, if you do not understand the mechanism. Sometimes the fear may be too much to let yourself feel it. Delve into your background with the counselor to locate that and when you deal with that your problems may just disappear. If on the other hand, the anger is genuine, trace it back to whenever from your past and deal with it. Many of us accumulate unexpressed feelings from the immediate or long past and we then become very fragile and vulnerable to even minor provocations and let out huge steam unmatched to the stimulus. This will make you an easy target by those who want to get a sick pleasure out of provoking you. You will then become a spectacle and a plaything in their hands. For this too, I recommend the help of a counselor. Exercise is an excellent outlet for the energy of the anger so that you will never loose your cool.

Dear lybrate user, sex is a physical urge/need. It helps in emotional connect as well. Having good sexual relations with your partner will keep you both connected emotionally and committed to each other. But sex is not a daily chore, for which you can have a fixed time or interval. Hence there is no hard and fast rule for having or not having sex on daily basis. A couple can enjoy sex when they both feel the urge and are ready physically and emotionally. The frequency depends on their mutual need and capacity. Sex is also not just a physical activity. It is a way to connect and develop bond with your partner, way to seek and express love to each other. So do not worry about the frequency. What is more important is that both the partners need to be ready for it. And the feeling/urge needs to come from within. I think it would be very helpful if you seek pre-maital conselling for either both or at least you can talk to a counsellor. There are many aspects to married life, which you need to understand before marriage to have a successful marriage. Good luck.

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 is 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. 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.

I really like your fervent appeal for help. But do you think you have given enough information to really help you? Let me make this appeal: please give me more information to do justice to guiding you over such a serious matter. Face your problems, and take one day at a time. You sound like you could be depressed due to anger. If so, please meet with a psychiatrist immediately. Get up early every morning and do some vigorous exercise. Plan your day with interesting activities. Do not lie down prone or sleep during the day. Meet lots of people. Go to work if you are of that age, or go to school/college regularly. Remember, ?idleness is a devil?s workshop. Always keep these three things in mind: be responsible, be respectful and be functional in whatever you do. Find yourself a confidant with whom you may talk about all personal problems with ease and without restraint. Eat well too ? lots of fiber foods and a good blend of nutritious items too. Have faith in God to know and feel that you are never alone. Pray often. Every problem has a solution but you may not have found one as yet. That is exactly why you need to talk to a professional, immediately. Life is very precious, and every moment you can stretch it, you are respecting a god-given gift. You have only one chance in this life, make the most of it. We often mistakenly think that we cannot talk about our issues for fear of rejection. You may be into a depression because of that flawed thinking. Please try to talk to someone you can trust. You will be surprised how receptive people are and how well they respond to your travails. All of us need a confidant for precisely this reason, so that we can share anything we want without being judged or rejected for it.

EpressionFemale, 18 I am bds student. I have been there in relationship with a boy. I am now 18 years old. From 9th standard I was in relationship which made me feel happy. After 2 years we broke up and I have stayed in depression for 2 yrs. I have lost my weight. I am not able to make contact with people nicely. After then he again came back. We tried for 8 months but our relationship didn't work. Though now I know this is not proper age for love and relationships. I found myself so changed. I have lost confidence totally. But now I have totally lost interest in him also and with other things also. I have tried to end myself many times. I want new life. please give it to me.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

All stimulants causes nervous excitation, its virulence and finally followed by exhaustion. Drugs that are harmful always do quit it. Being healthy physically and mentally is not easy now a days. People are vexed, fed up and get lot of negative emotions makes weakness both mentally and physically. Remember - "Every (and Any) problem have its on solution in its tail end. So Please don't get upset with problems. Try to understand it. .Think wisely, Analyse and do the solution very confidently and slowly. This makes you proud and happy on You. Take Nux Vom 1m night when going to sleep for 2 days. It will do.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs 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

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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Respected Sir, I am an Engineer, having my own business related to Agriculture and Gardening. I feel depressed most of the time, as I am on my own and have nobody to support or encourage during my business and financial depressions. My wife is a spend thrift who does't care about my financial problems. I have aged parents to take care. My only consolation is, my children are outstanding in their studies. But when I think about my future, I always feel a knot in my stomach and feel unhappy. I don't even get a sound sleep and have a very disturbed sleep. Even a slight sound makes me wide awake. I don't know what to do. What is my trouble and how to come out of this?

Sleep well./eat regularly Check your health with blood tests/ Look forwards not backward/ Take courage and challenge yourself to recover.
