If you want better results while studying, revision is the key. Repeated revision consolidates the information in the brain and helps to retain the information. Other than that, try a daily exercise of recalling your entire day in as much detail as possible before you sleep. Initially only important or superficial details are recalled, but with practice minor details can also be recalled. Be more organized; make lists. Use acronyms and mnemonic devices to help you remember. Take 45 minute slots followed by a 5-15 minute break. Eat and at proper times. Drink plenty of water. Find time for exercise or meditation. Keep time for proper revision at end of study session. Revise before you sleep.

Dear lybrate user, Applying of herbal treatments such as sage, lavender, tea tree oil and chamomile. These herbs have anti-pruritic and soothing properties which can relieve severe itch. These can also make the skin smoother upon application. Salt water application. This can be done several times in a day to alleviate itchiness. The salt contained in the solution attracts the water contained in the bumps, thus relieving swelling. Herbal medicines containing camphor and menthol can also be applied to the infected area. Camphor and mint have antibiotic properties. Proper hygiene. Daily bathing and cleansing can prevent as well as treat the painful red bumps on the skin.

Good Afternoon ~ Being chronically ill and having to take medications for the same or having to depend on doctor visits or other persons in the family is quite a challenge and I am so very glad that you have brought this issue up on this forum. Depression can be caused by having long term or chronic illnesses that are treated and controlled. Treatment of the depression is essential in the recovery of whatever medical problem you have that you are worried about always and encourage you to speak with your primary care giver to be able to get a referral to a psychiatrist.

I am 23 years old how to quit smoking easily without any problems?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, quitting smoking is tricky but is very easy task. There are several methods in psychotherapy to quit smoking. Initially you need to show will power which we will impart through motivation therapy and mind power building therapy. Then slowly you learn to adjust yourself with the non-smoking regime. It will take time, but will be a success. Consult me for more online therapy and counseling. Take care.

My question is for a psychologist. My daughter is 10 years old, lot many times she becomes obstinate and doesn't listen to me, she is just close to adolescence. How to react and to make her understand what is right what is wrong in a polite manner? As being a human nature, I lose temper and scold her. Thanx.

Having defiant behaviour early in adolescence is common. However that should not deter you from making her disciplined. Try to listen to her by giving a patient hearing. Children at this age demand independence and appreciation of their thoughts. Losing your temper on her only shows your inability to cope with her needs. If you find it difficult to communicate consult a child psychiatrist/ psychologist personally with your spouse for more details.

I think you are right about the possible depression, which seems anger based. The anxiety is fear based and may cause you undue distress. Depression and anxiety often appear together and so the doctors may be right probably seeing more of anxiety. However, you must meet with a counselor too and get good assessments on the basis of your information sharing. Both the feelings of anger and fear must be dealt with for any change. You may need to learn much about emotions too, and the counselor will meet that need too. The visit to Pune may have been just the trigger and so there is nothing to attribute to the place. But in that visit by staying away from home may have caused more distress than you know to precipitate the depression. First, visit the counselor and discuss your problem at length. If necessary take your parents and your entire developmental history from prenatal days till today. Also it would help if you took your family history from your grandparents onwards. The counselor will help identify the origins and give you a series of things to do. If your depression is really severe, that person may suggest a doctor?s visit too. Now cooperate with both of the therapies for the best results, for a substantially long time. Do not discontinue the counseling, if you are on medication. You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings too. Suicide ideation is part and parcel of this condition but it is never a solution. Life is to precious and you must reach out in time to preempt the impulse. Don?t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. You are young and you can do it with some commitment.

Please suggest some medicine to flush out Nicotine from the body as I am a chain smoker and wanted to quit it. Tried to quit it for some time however unable to continue it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
No such medicines and you have to stop smoking and do breathing exercise .Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE 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. Which can be prescribed if asked personally 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, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

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.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. I can provide you more tips. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, you are in your growing period. It is common to have relationships and also have heart breaks, confusion etc. Firstly, until and unless you have some evidence there is no point doubting here and getting disturbed. If you have and she accepts it you can mend you relationship and give her another chance if you want. Thirdly, if she does not accept and you have evidence and she behaves cold and not loving, its better to leave the relationship move on. Helplessness is only perceived we always have the power to make us feel good or bad and if relationships is not helping us grow its not worth having. Long distance will create further doubt. You can also leave things as it is, take a break, and leave everything on fate. Till that time study, focus on your career, that is of utmost importance it will help you throughout your life.
