I'm 22 years old. I usually forget the things, like I keep milk and forget it. I remember after long time or else someone else will remind me. Why my memory is getting lost in young age? Please help me to over come this problem.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to 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. Take care.

Just taking medication will only correct the chemical imbalances in the brain. While you also need to learn techniques to handle situations with ease and aplomb without losing your mental and emotional equilibrium. Stress has always been a part of life ans will be. It is always better to equip yourself with such tips and techniques. Counselling is such a non judgemental space whwere ou can explore the causes of your anxiety and get to more about your unhealthy outdated beliefs and replace them with healthier and updated beliefs which will leave you feeling more confident about yourself, your relationships and situations which earlier caused you stress. 2. Learning a skill which could help you feel confident is a good way of handling stress. Eg. If you are teaching young kids and you do not know how to teach them. Then it will cause you anxiety and feelings of inadequacy. The b. Ed course will give you all those skills and info that you need for teaching children. 3. Exercise everyday to manage anxiety. A good run, swim, jog will help you to calm down and relax, feeling good about yourself. Breathing exercises will help you to calm down and relax at the time of stress. Anulom vilom and bhramri are 2 pranayams which are very good for anxiety reduction. Do these everyday for 5 mins before sleeping. 3. Avoid junk like fried, processed, refined etc as it is linked to stress and anxiety. Eat more of fresh, raw and whole foods with minimum processing.

Exercising regularly and avoiding spicy foods can lessen the frequency of nightfall. Do jogging or brisk walking for at least 30 minutes every day. To avoid drinking of any liquid for at least 2 hours before going to sleep. If you are drinking milk at night, avoid that and drink it evening time only. Start listening to soothing music which gives peace of mind and gives soothing effects like the meditation gives. To avoid constipation because an upset digestive system also sometimes causes night fall.

Make sure that you give adequate time to your hobbies. Make sure you interact with friends and relatives regularly. Make sure you sleep for 8 hours a day. Eat green leafy vegetables, fish and chocolates. Your medicine might need to be reviewed. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a specialized form of counseling with which you can keep depression at bay without medicines.

Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, seame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

Mental stress will be mostly the reason for disturbances. Earlier your life style was good, but now, your profile changed the pattren. Try to maintain 6-7 hrs sleep anyway in n8. If still you feel dull, take a nap after lunch, if possible try to follow pranyama, yoga, any breathing exercises (will b taught in art of living, isha foundation etc) will relieve your mind from stress&keep quite. But do not take any allopathic medications. For that purpose.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Physical health and mental health are inter dependent. They are related to each other. You should learn to be always happy, thereby providing an attitudinal change to even your body. Physical exercise, entertainment, games etc can boost your body immunity and thereby mind also will be happy. This also ensures your appetite and therefore you eat well. All these things together will improve your overall health. Take care.

I was a chain smoker but now started gym. How can I increase my stamina and clear my lungs.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Ajitesh, Congratulations for stopping smoking. That itself will increase your stamina. Since your lung is clogged with so many cigarettes' smoke, it takes time to clear. It will definitely clear if you do not restart smoking. So continue to motivate yourself not to smoke. Work out in gym as much stamina as you have. Slowly you will increase gym and energy level. You are young and you can do it. Since i don't know how many cigarettes you were smoking and for how long, i can not say the time of clearing lungs. Roughly i will say 3-6 months. Remember that nicotine from cigarettes reach brain and activates it within seconds. The oxygen in atmosphere goes through lungs and blood before it reaches brain. So it takes longer time.

Hello- here are 10 easy steps you can take to reduce your risk of computer eye strain and other common symptoms of computer vision syndrome (cvs): get a comprehensive eye exam. 1. Use proper lighting. 2. Minimize glare. 3. Upgrade your display. 4. Adjust your computer display settings. 5. Blink more often. 6. Exercise your eyes. 8. Take frequent breaks. 9. Modify your workstation. If you need to look back and forth between a printed page and your computer screen, this can cause eye strain. Place written pages on a copy stand adjacent to the monitor. Light the copy stand properly. You may want to use a desk lamp, but make sure it doesn't shine into your eyes or onto your computer screen. Improper posture during computer work also contributes to computer vision syndrome. Adjust your workstation and chair to the correct height. Purchase ergonomic furniture to enable you to position your computer screen 20 to 24 inches from your eyes. The center of your screen should be about 10 to 15 degrees below your eyes for comfortable positioning of your head and neck. 10. Consider computer eyewear.
