Hi incorporate more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into your diet while eliminating unhealthy foods. - if you are working or studying away from home, try to pack healthy lunch and snacks for yourself to avoid eating unhealthy food daily. - don't eat straight from the packet - use a plate or bowl to control how much you eat. - don't delay or skip meals. - cut down your consumption of aerated drinks and sodas. - drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Drink water after waking up and before sleeping. Being dehydrated may make you feel like you're hungry, so it is important to stay hydrated. - have homemade fruit and vegetable juices - eat 5-6 small healthy meals every 2-3 hours, every day, instead of having a few big ones. This regulates your blood sugar level and your metabolism. - don't skip breakfast, instead, make it rich with complex carbohydrates and proteins, so it can provide you with energy to get through the day. Try to include the following as your morning breakfast, oats porridge, eggs on multigrain toast or daliya with sprouts. - avoid artificial sweeteners in processed foods. - eat slowly as it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to register if you're full or not. Eating too fast leads to overeating, so chew slowly to digest your food better and control how much you eat. - use a smaller plate to control your portion sizes and avoid overeating. - know your cravings and do not snack when you're emotional. It is said that you crave crunchy and savory food when you're stressed, frustrated or lonely. Figure out what you crave and replace them with healthier alternatives. - do not eat mindlessly; concentrate on your food instead of watching tv or playing with your phone to avoid overeating.

I am a boy of age 16. Is it right to watch lesbian videos when my mind says me to watch it.

I am a boy of age 16. Is it right to watch lesbian videos when my mind says me to watch it.
You are still at a very impressionable age and anything that is suggestible can sway your opinions and also your choices. So, it is advisable to keep off these videos. You need to wait for at least four years to be able to discern these type of issues. Your male sex hormone, testosterone, is very active right now and lesbian videos can take your sexual leanings in another direction and it will then become difficult to reverse it easily.

Hello sir, I don't remember anything more, Give me some tips or exercises for my good brain working,

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 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. 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. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Shayad aap ka concentration level lam hai aur aap zara dear tak attentive nahi rah paate. Aapko apne padhai ki techniques mei bhi ouch changes karne chahiye jisse aapko padhai yaad rahe relax, have good sleep, organise your study log, make flow charts, write to remember things, revise every day for sometime that you read earlier. If you have problems concentrating during study and have anxiety, consult me for management.

If someone does smoking one times in one month then is it effected or not for our body?

Once in a month is ok...but why to do once in a month also.. Better not to go for it... When we know that "Hot iron will burn us when we touch we, why to show our stupidity to touch it....?" Better don't go for it... Take care... :)

When someone asks a question or say when I have to speak instantly. Then I fumble and stammer and take a pause and then speak my name. So my question I feel embarrassed in stammering so I want to heal it and remove it completely .how to do it?

Hello lybrate-user, thanks for your question. Have you tried taking speech therapy. I feel you can find ways to heal your speech. However, before you take further steps, you need to work on self-confidence, so that though you stammer you still feel confident about answering or replying to the question. I would highly recommend if you could take some speech therapy sessions as well to help you with your fumbling and stammering. There are some Youtube videos as well that can guide you with speech. I don't mind helping you. But it is recommended that you have face to face sessions for the same.

For becoming a famous singer, avoid foods which are not too salty, oily, pungent or bitter. Best and safest food for singing is strict vegetarian diet and to take fruits in day time and cow's milk in night time about three hours after dinner.

General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum 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. You can ask me privately Best age to stop smoking is before 40 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, Best age to stop smoking is before 40 Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality.

Lybrate user most importantly you need to decide what is more important to you your studies or the problems which are creating disturbances at your mental level. Secondly try to hv a glass of water before just start your studies you will not get distract for good amount of time. Meanwhile if you feel needed opt for online counselling.

Hello, I am 30 years old and I am dealing with a kind of weak memory problem since some months. The main problem it seems to me is I forget the things which I read and can't keep it in the brain for a longer period, this leads to repetitive reading. I used masturbate some months before after watching videos but latter on came out of it and again focused on the studies but this problem has started then! the brain is feeling as if it's numb. Is this because of that reason. Can you suggest please some solutions for it? So that I can recover my brain activity as normal like before.

Thanks for your query. First of all we have to understand what your background education is and what you are studying. For eg if we take an occupational steno or a mathematicians who knows nash theory and ask him to study medicine books he will not only be aversive to it but also will find it difficult to grasp the knowledge ideas and concepts. A hell router programmer cannot understand cloud paradise programmimg. Not everyone can study all subjects. Only some subject s can be read by all people. Therefore choose a subject that suits your background not your routine. Thats the badic problem. Also you will continue to masturbate as per your background. That is something you can avoid even if you feel you don't know that person much really. The idea here is to rectify your background as per what you are and really want to be and act accordingly. Anythings not possible as far as individuals capabilities go. For more information contact me in private section.

Dear Lybrate user. You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Most commonly, diagnoses of acute painful spinal conditions are nonspecific, such as neck or back strain, although injuries may affect any of several pain-sensitive structures, which include the disk, facet joints, spinal musculature, and ligamentous support. The origin of chronic back pain is often assumed to be degenerative conditions of the spine; however, controlled studies have indicated that any correlation between clinical symptoms and radiological signs of degeneration is minimal or nonexistent. Inflammatory arthropathy, metabolic bone conditions, and fibromyalgia are cited in others as the cause of chronic spine-related pain conditions. Homoeopathy offers quick, safe and permanent cure for any such conditions, you have to give your detailed case history to select correct medicine for you. Also change your lifestyle to a healthy one, go for regular exercise, eat more vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water, try to relax for few minutes between work.
