Dear, that is really nice. I would say you are blessed. You are able to continuously read for 5 hours or so. But you must also understand and be aware of surroundings. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I am having memory lose and low memory so I can't remember some thing. So in exams my memory was emty.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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.

Hello sir. I think I am suffering from phobia. Always in panic. What should I do. Please help me.
Hi lybrate-user, first of all if the anxiety symptoms are severe, seek medication from psychiatrist. If you are in a busy place, e. G. Work, school, or general public. Distance yourself, going to a quieter, more secluded place where you can refocus, out of range of surprising or load sounds or many people. Breathe in through your nose, out through your mouth. This helps to slow down your breathing whilst providing your body with the optimum amount of oxygen. It is often tempting to focus on the physical symptoms of an anxiety attack, e. G. Shaking, hot and cold flushes, short and quick breathes, feeling like you want to vomit etc. Definitely acknowledge the physical things you are feeling, but do not focus on them as this can often just make you more anxious. Slow down that breathing. In through your nose, out through your mouth. This is key. Step outside and get some fresh air, take a breather, fresh air definitely helps. Also helpful to remember the anxiety is only something you feel and experience. Anxiety is not who you are. Stay connected to the people around you. It can be tempting to isolate yourself, but friendship and support is so beneficial and everyone needs people around them to help them laugh, and keep things in perspective. Consult for any clarification.

Hi, what causes not to sleep on daily basis, check whether you take some medication without Dr. Prescription, or any depression, or any physical injuries. You have sleep in same timing like 9 to 10 pm without giving any excuse. Take your supper before 7.30 pm try warm milk before bed, read any solid boring books like history or other subjects, which you feel boring, do deep breathing very slowly for 5 mins, do count from 100 to 1 with full concentration on numbers. Wake up at 5.30 pm. Do 45 mins exercise, never sleep or nap in the afternoon, be positive that you will get sleep. Tell to yourself consciously that you are getting sleep. Do all the above for 21 days with any break. If the above suggestions are not working out, don't sleep for whole night as well as day. You will sure get the sleep on the next day night.

Well done. Don't smoke again. Nothing can physically clean. Impact of tobacco on lung function can be reduced by assessment and if needed inhalers with 3 monthly reassessment by a pulmonologist. Fresh fruit, and vegetables supply antioxidants which protect.

I am 27 years old and I think I have stress and in order to avoid it what should I do it?
Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

For constipation and digestion Foods and drinks: Eat high-fiber foods such as raisins, raw vegetables, salads, bran cereals, whole-grain bread and fresh fruit. Eat prunes or figs. Eat oatmeal, applesauce, legumes (dried beans) and barley, to soften the stool. Flax meal can be purchased already ground. Or, you can buy the seeds and grind them yourself. Flax meal is a good source of natural fiber and health-promoting Omega-3 fatty acids. It can be stirred into or sprinkled on foods. Drink plenty of liquids—at least eight glasses a day. Water and herbal tea are best. Juices are not recommended, nor are caffeinated drinks, as your body can become dependent on these in the long run. Drink several cups of warm-to-hot liquid in the morning. Herbal teas or water work well. Exercise: Do daily exercise, like a brisk half-hour walk. Visit the toilet for 15 minutes in the morning, even if you are unable to have a bowel movement. This relaxes and stimulates your digestive system. Sit quietly for 15 minutes after eating a meal to aid in digestion. Burn Fats And Calories Healthy Diet to Lose Weight Leave Carbonated Beverages Eating vegetables to lose weight Eating fruits to lose weight Stop eating sugar lose weight fast Reduce sodium lose weight Herbal Tea to lose weight Eat low calorie foods Drink plenty of water Avoid sweets Eat more vegetables U need to take a balanced diet.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The prescribed medicines should be apt for your complaints for personality style. Don't worry. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety.. Take care.

Top 4 Alternative Therapies for Stress and Anxiety

MD - Alternative Medicine
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Mumbai
Top 4 Alternative Therapies for Stress and Anxiety

Stress and anxiety are often repeated terms that people use frequently when they are faced with an overwhelming situation. Yet, these are also clinical terms that can refer to hormonal imbalances which can cause despair, panic, hopelessness, depression and other such emotionally and mentally debilitating problems. Apart from the conventional methods of drugs for symptomatic treatment and counselling or therapy, one can make use of several alternative treatment methods to bring down the stress and anxiety levels significantly. 

Here are the top four ways of treating the same:

  1. Meditation: Transcendental and other forms of guided and unguided meditation can go a long way in realigning yourself with your inner resources so as to create a more congenial environment as you go about doing your daily activities. With meditation, you can focus on your breath or a certain point or you can choose to listen to guided medication which will take you through a scene and help you relax. Soothing treatments such as these will help you in grounding yourself in a better way for a more fluid progression of your day. One can even practice mindfulness techniques for meditation to get into a frame of mind where you will basically observe rather than get affected by everyday events. You must find yourself a quiet place where you can meditate in a peaceful way.
  2. Yoga: Many people consider Yoga and its various postures and poses as the best means for the union of the mind, the body as well as the spirit. So, this is also a good way to keep stress and anxiety away. Ensure that you practice the exercises, poses and various breathing activities on a daily basis for at least half an hour to one hour in order to feel visible effects in your mood.
  3. Acupressure: There are a series of specific acupoints in everyone  's body which can be pressed and activated in order to relieve the painful and debilitating symptoms of many conditions, including stress and anxiety. Acupressure is a well known way of dealing with these conditions. This method, with its pointed devices and needles, helps in releasing endorphins and eliminating toxins with reduced muscle pressure and better blood circulation.
  4. A Better Routine: One of the best ways of removing stress and anxiety from your life is by taking care of your routine and ensuring that you eat, sleep and exercise at a set time every single day so as to create a more organised environment in your life. Limiting caffeine and removing smoking or excessive alcohol dependence can also improve the condition by leaps and bounds.

If the stress and anxiety does not go away with natural methods, then it is best to see a doctor for supplements and therapy.

Am engineering student and my memory go way from sharpness. And my long memory also short memory are so weak. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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.

Smoking (nicotine) reduces hunger. If you stop smoking, you will feel hungry and eat more. Apart from eating well, stopping smoking has more health benefits. So try to stop smoking. If you need help to stop, please come on text or audio counselling.
