Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

I have been smoking cigarettes since 2013. And right now I have been addicted it. As well as I smoke marijuana, cannabis a lot. Even if I try to I can't stop myself from smoking it. Google even says it is healthy to smoke marijuana. But I am getting thin and dark in skin complexion and my lips have turned dark. And I have gained dark circles around my eyes. What to do. I'm really confused.

The use of marijuana is not only harmful to the pot smoker himself. He can also become a risk to society. Many people will tell you marijuana is not dangerous. Consider who is telling you that. Are these the same people who are trying to sell you some pot? Marijuana can harm a person’s memory—and this impact can last for days or weeks after the immediate effects of the drug wear off. In one study, a group of heavy marijuana users was asked to recall words from a list. Their ability to correctly remember the words did not return to normal until as long as four weeks after they stopped smoking.

Am a smoking person. Am smoking past 10 years. Now I want to stop the smoking habits.. Pls help me.

You must have been smoking for a long time and may have tried several times to quit it too. But you must keep trying until you succeed. This is the pattern with smoking: you fail and then you try again. One day you will succeed. You may feel that it is impossible to give up at your age or for having smoked so much. But that it not true. I know of so many people who have given up and were very high level smokers (even 40 cigarettes a day!). You can follow some of these instructions to help you this time. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Too much distraction is a problem and may be induced by stress which you may not be aware of. If you meet with a counselor it will help. In the meantime do the following regularly: 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 or coconut 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 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

I am 21 and I have a boyfriend from college. We are very happy now. But something's from past gets in mind once in a while. My boyfriend has a girl best friend who is not too close to people. Last year my boyfriend went to a college tour. She got too close and cozy to him during it. He dint bother as he is always open to friends. When they returned I heard of them and got really angry with him. I thought she was emotionally close to him. But she also started to be physically close, holding hands while walking, sitting etc. And even talking of it. So after I heard of it and got angry he said it was not anything bad and he just allowed best friends as they should be. Later the month when that girl was more talking to another friend, my boyfriend got sad thinking that their friendship was fading. He got angry to her little .when she asked why, he said he didn't wanted to lose her best friendship and that he was possessive of her love and care she gave him. She convinced him that no one could take his place. He wanted her friendship back and they talked that way being emotional sent and all. When I told him to limit his friendship with her he said he wouldn't leave her friend as he is equally important to him as I am .I an his girl friend and she is his best friend. That hurted me to hear that he was too attached with his best friend . Later I got depressed and once I saw his chats with her during their friendship re union and all, I hated him .and got sad. He also got sad for making me sad. And said he didn't wanted to be selfish. His friends are friends. Nothing more. And he wanted them. Later due to my complaining he reduced his friendship. She also understood. Now we are hapy. But I thought I was mean even though I was hurt. So I told him he could be best friends again. He was happy to hear. I want to forget that memory of those days when they occur sometimes now. I want to forgive her and let her out of mind.

The past looms over us - especially the bad memories. No need to be guilty of being selfish - in all relationships, clear boundaries need to be laid down right from the beginning, so that there are no misunderstandings later on. So, what you did was absolutely right. As for the memories disturbing you, focus on where you want to take your relationship from here - it is always our choice what we want to remember from the past - if you remember the sweet memories they will grow bigger in your mind. To forgive her, all you have to do is relax, take a few deep breaths, close your eyes and while releasing your breath, say to yourself i'm free, I free you. And forgive her. The anger will only come back, if you think about that episode negatively, if you see it like any other incident, then it will not hurt you.

Dear sir, Frequently I faced many tensions &got depression in my office, what are the best remedies, tablets I can use.
Try not to think about the work life when at home, keep yourself busy with your liking and hobbies while not on duty. You need to sleep properly (~8 hr per day), so prior to bed, I'd recommend a cold shower, half an hour of meditation with soothing music, try it, you can google for training video lesson for this before hand. Make sure to sleep in a completely dark room devoid of any noise. Try not to take any tea/coffee for at least 3 hrs prior to bed (practice it, it'll be worthwhile). Stay away from any kind of smoking/alcohol (if you do). If possible, early morning/evening go out for a light jogging session, you'll be feeling much better and refreshed if maintained in daily basis.

Nothing good has happened in my life since a year I have terrible anxiety, Most of the time Too much negativity around me. So since a year I've been sitting completely alone in college and None of the girls want to talk to me Because the professors Try to like flirt with me. All the proffesors are really young. I give them hints to stop, bluntly confront them by saying sir, please don't make so much eye contact with me, the other people in the class feel bad but they never listen. The girls feel bad They keep on making eye contact with me. It looks really bad, know. I was even the CR Of the class So that added up to the problems. Class representative. I was give a lot of work. I got really frustrated with everything and I decided to leAve that post. My family knows about this and they too worry. The college professors are seeing me like for the 100th time not the first time then why do they have to act like that? 1st time they see me I can understand They will come next to my desk n teach n what not. It's annoying If I sit on the last bench also they will come and teach there. I've always respected teachers I can't live peacefully I don't give them any dirty hints. I'm suffering from a bad allergy too I have an allergy Of cold n dust I was earlier unaware of it So like previous October to cool myself I used to have a lot of cold water That's caused my allergy to become really severe So severe that I find it hard to breAthe So that also added to my anxiety I have usually had a good immunity However I had suffered once from vitamin D deficiency. That seemed to have made my immunity weakMy mother doesn't talk to me She went off to London [And after 2-3 months She completely stopped talking to me So since 4 months we have not spoken I told my family about all this My grandparents and my father stay with me My grandfather took it in a negative way He started misbehaving with me Doing a little drama. Acting weird Instead of helping n supporting me I broke down And I have around 4-5 close friends 2-3 of them ditched me in May They just completely stopped talking to me for no reason However that's not much of an issue now They suddenly started talking again also and I didn't push it further too And question them too much. I feel really anxious and low. How do I help myself?

After reading what you have asked, i would say that its not easy to tell you in few lines what to do to help yourself, I think the good idea would be to meet a counselor and discuss your concerns. There seem to be complicated things in your life and a counselor can help you learn skills to cope with these issues. It can take few sessions of intervention.
