I am 43 years old. Since the last one year I have started forgetting everything. I have also problem in thinking and understanding anything. What is happening to me? what should I do?

It appears that you have difficulty in concentration which can manifest as forgetfulness. If you have other symptoms like sadness of mood, decreased interest in work, getting tired easily, sleep and appetite disturbances, than you might be having a depressive episode. You should consult a psychiatrist

There are active people and there are proactive people. Who is more liable to blood pressure? Is blood pressure related to how we feel? Is blood pressure related to suppression of your desires and hence to anger within and hence your mental health? We keep giving medicines to the physiological system and never look into the cause of problem. Doctor, please advise as to synchronize psychological and physiological processes within our body system? B.

Hi blood pressure is caused by obstruction of arteries by deposition of fat in the side walls. Because of this heart has to exert more pressure to circulate the blood. Take your medicines prescribed by your doctor for bp. Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops to keep your mind calm. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of agrimony + 3 drops of water violet + 3 drops of mimulus. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose).

It is totally normal. Vaginal discharge is normal. It's consistency and amount changes throughout the month and with age. Another factor is sexual arousal. There is no need to worry unless there is a foul smell, greenish-yellowish discharge, itching or pain.

Top 4 Ways You Can Increase Your Willpower

There are days when you wake up but you don’t want to move out of the bed. When your alarm goes off and you open your eyes feeling groggy and disoriented.Times when you accept defeat and stop moving towards what you want to achieve in life. These are just indicators of being low on motivation and lacking will power to chnage things. It’s more psychological than physical. Follow these simple tips, to come out of your cocoon and boost your willpower.

Try these four ways to up your willpower.

1) Meditate - Meditation is the key to unleashing your powers, especially willpower. Practicing mindfulness, even for few minutes a day can help in boosting your willpower.

2) Exercise - The magic pill of exercise is another best way to boost your willpower. It is recommended that you exercise for 30 minutes, at least three times a week to ensure that you feel fitter, reduce your anxiety levels and boost your overall willpower to achieve bigger and better things in life.

3) Hold yourself accountable - That’s one of the best ways to boost your willpower. If you hold yourself accountable in your own life, if you know that those reasons of not getting out of the bed are mere excuses, then you would certainly increase your willpower.

4) Set Goals - One of the reasons why people experience a faltering in their will power is the fact that they don’t set their goals. Setting definitive targets is a must.You must ensure that the goal is set with measurable quantities, is specific, attainable, relevant and timely. All of this will certainly help you in enhancing your willpower.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Please consult your doctor again and update him on your son's health. He might change the medicines or reduce the dose. You also have the option of changing your doctor. These medications usually come with many side effects. I suggest that you do your own research, read up and educate yourself and take an informed decision. The health of your son could be because of this medicine or something in his diet or the seasonal changes. Though allopathy medicines bring faster relief, they come with numerous side effects. On the other hand, ayurveda and homeopathy are gentler on the mind and body and fewer side effects and sometimes slow to show improvement. Nevertheless, you are doing a wonderful job as a parent and taking care of your son. Take care.

Many people have problems with forgetfulness, even if they otherwise have a good memory. Absentmindedness is something that affects all of us at some time or another. Absentmindedness is the natural consequence of being able to do as much as we do. By being able to perform an activity without thinking about it we are able to perform many more tasks than we would otherwise. However, sometimes things we would like to remember get overlooked in the process. It isn't possible to eliminate forgetfulness or absentmindedness, but there are techniques and strategies that can help reduce how often it happens. With practice and memory trainingyou can develop the skills necessary to reduce absentmindedness. Have more sleep. Lack of sleep is one of the most common causes of forgetfulness. Hence, get plenty of sleep. For most people, at least seven or eight hours of sleep a day is needed. If you could not get more sleep at night, try taking a nap sometime during the day. Get more oxygen to the brain. Our brain uses oxygen whenever it performs its functions; the more tasks it does, the more oxygen it needs. Hence, for us to think better and remembers things clearly, we must get more oxygen to our brain. This is only possible if we increase our flow of blood through quitting smoking and regular fitness exercises like aerobics. Regular exercise would not only be beneficial for the memory but as well as for the entire wellness of the body. Experts believe that elderly people who exercise regularly have less chance of decreasing memory ability. Eat healthy foods. Diet is important in order for our mind to function effectively. One of the best types of food is fish because it contains omega 3 fatty acid, an essential oil that helps the brain to receive and retain information. Fresh vegetables and fruits should also be included in the diet. Check your iron level. Iron is known to boost our memory, and therefore, it must be maintained in a sufficient level. Eat foods with plenty of iron or take iron supplements regularly. Simplify. Absent-mindedness is oftentimes caused by having too much to remember. Our brain also has its satiation point and whatever we put in beyond its capacity only gets spilled out and wasted. Thus, simplify your life, remove unnecessary things, and select things to remember. Prioritize. An extension to the idea of simplification is prioritizing. When there are so many things to do, better plan out which must be or can be done first and which can come last. Also, eliminate some activities so all the things in your top priorities can be realized. Write things down. This might seem an easy step but this is seldom practiced by everyone. We tend to memorize things just in our heads, but unfortunately, we lose much information in the end. The best thing to do is to keep a notebook with you all the time. Write down your list of errands, things to buy or do, important dates, names of people you meet or places you have been to, or whatever things you can scribble that which can serve you well any given day. Once you write them down, you can forget them. When you need them, you can readily open your notebook and find the information you need. For short-term needs, you might also write on sticky notes and hang them on the most conspicuous places. Develop routines. Naturally, we remember the things that we habitually do. Thus, do the same things in the same order and at the same time every day. When you do tasks in the same order every day, you develop habits and do not have to think about them anymore. Develop techniques. You can devise some ways to compensate for your forgetfulness. Say using a recorder and making a list of things. If you are the type who usually misplaces keys, train yourself to place them in a single area, like a hook near a door. If you get confused over piles of documents and papers, learn to organize and make use of folders and cabinets. These are only some ways to develop ways to remember the things you tend to forget.
