Very simple. Recall the novel scene by scene, imagine as if your husband doing the hero's role in every scene. Do it as an everyday practice. See how silly your worry is.

I can give you some study tips Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Hi. My girlfriend is the from a higher caste and that's why her mother forbade her to talk with me. But we are in a relationship since 2014. A serious relationship in sense of honest amd earnest love (not to be misinterpreted with physicalities). Things changed from the time her mother became so strict about the matter. She even found an alternative for her in place of me, but she rejected the boy standing again her whole family. But as the situations lead to, she doesn't talk with me as before, marks my WhatsApp messages as seen, no reply, ignores me somewhat. I asked her out what's the matter a few days ago. She said that being the whole family and specially her mother against the relationship, whenever she texts me, or any kind of topic regarding me arises, her mother howls at her in such a disgrace, and even spitting odds and bad about me is also not restricted! Despite of all the unwelcoming circumstances, we're still in a relationship, but definitely not sire if our marriage will be possible or not. In fact the probability is leaning viciously to a big No. We both are concerned about it a lot. I'm in IIT Bombay, 1st year. But problem is I'm an SC. And that's why fear is growing upon us vein like railway tracks forever that runs parallel together but never meet! What should we do now?

As you have explained, she is in confusion to go ahead with you despite the family being so objectionable. All you can do is ask her if she can accept you against the whole world and see if you can handle it, If you are well settled in life to marry against the family. Or it is just forget he and decide between both of you.

I am being anxious to often. Is it normal for people of my age to be anxious when working in stress environment?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
I am being anxious to often. Is it normal for people of my age to be anxious when working in stress environment?
Yes it is very normal. Stressful enviroment sometimes drain us out of our resources making us feel anxious and burn out. Try to manage and organize your day to day activities, eat more fruits and green leafy vegetables. Exercise daily and do yoga/meditation. Keep a journal of stressful events- a thought diary. Find humor in situation and surround yourself with positive people. If there is any particular stress you can consult a psychologist always. All the best.

What to do to sharpen our memory.?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , brain power is almost always same for every person. The difference is how you use it. The more you use your brain, the more powerful it becomes. It is like a diamond. Shines more, the more you polish it. Memory is not just memory. Memory includes perception, storage and recollection. Exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku, nutritive food etc are also good for brain. You can practice" effective learning techniques" for learning and recollection. Take care.

escitalopram is an antidepressant. Amisulpiride on the other hand is an antipsychotic drug. So your comparison is not fair.

Hello..... Masturbation does not affect eye sight... Eye sight affects due to late night studying, nutritional deficiency, wrong sitting position during studying....... Firstly eat healthy diet including all green leafy veges and fresh fruits....... Vitamin C rich fruits are good..... Carrots are very good for eyes.. Eat them in salad or as juice....... Do exercises for increasing eye sight...... During studying sit straight and also read in full light..... These will help you to improve eye sight.... For more advice you can consult me..... Good luck...

My boyfriend is always playing games with me n it seems to me that he cheated me and I feel I am always in stress.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Try to talk to him about how his behavior is affecting you. If he does not cooperate and you are interested in salvaging the relationship, ask a common friend to intervene and mediate. If you feel you are being abused in any way in this relationship, (be it emotional, physical, sexual or mental) you need to reevaluate whether you should continue it or not. It is better to walk away from an abusive relationship than to wait around, hoping your partner will change. Staying in a toxic relationship due to any kind of dependence will be harmful to your well being in the long run.

YOu have to forget the break up and be positive in thinking that your best partner is yet to come and do meditation and yoga. If none of this helps you you need antidepressant medicines.

How to refresh our mind after hardwork?

BHMS
Alternative Medicine,
Dear, there are several ways of doing that. First of all, if you have been doing what you loved and loved what you did, you would never see your work as'hard work' rather than waiting for the end of the day, take several breaks during the day, take a few deep breath, figure out how you can generate interest in the work and how you could make your work much lesser stressful. And look forward to doing some thing that makes you happy. When you do what you like to do, your scattered consciousness returns back to your body, making you feel invigorated and energised. There are certain affirmations to change your mindset in correct way. You can practice them too.
