I am 19 years old boy and I have a lot of problem in my memory can't remember things. And I need some trick how can I increase my memory power.

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. 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.

Today been diagnosed with bipolar and now have to stop taking cit and start on new meds so the journey begins all over again and still off work so all in all the mountain summit is getting further away.

General Physician,
Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. There are four basic types of bipolar disorder; all of them involve clear changes in mood, energy, and activity levels. These moods range from periods of extremely “up,” elated, and energized behavior (known as manic episodes) to very sad, “down,” or hopeless periods (known as depressive episodes). Less severe manic periods are known as hypomanic episodes.

Could be but it is better for you to get yourself examined. Cessation of smoking is a must anyway and you should not wait for bad symptoms to appear before quitting. If you did that you may have developed a permanent condition and will have to resort to curative measures. If you quit now, you will be on a preventive mode and life will be a lot better.

My relationship is falling apart, it is so unhappy. I am tired of this boring, unhappy, too many problems, fights, arguments. But this girl is very important to me, I don't want to lose her ever rather I want to make everything correct and be happy. How to do this? Please consult.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Life is difficult anyway. You must learn to adapt and through discipline approach this fact without trying to change it: change yourself. Relationships are all about adjustment and if you cannot you are not made or you are not equipped as yet for intense relationships. These initial disagreements and differences are all about whether you can cope with it or not. Of course, adjustment is expected on both sides. If I am placing too much expectation on you alone then I am sorry and you could both reach out to a relationship counselor to help you both see sense. Since you love the girl and want her so badly, make the effort. But you also need to be careful that you do not play into her hands too much that she takes advantage of you all through your life together. Have a frank talk to her and if you hit a roadblock, go to a counselor for help.

I guess your father is suspicious about other people. Your father is physically and mentally tired now after working for 55 years. He might be finding it difficult to stay at home and probably does not understand how to spend his time. At this age body and mind cannot work very efficiently and effectively. Keep a check on all his physical parameters and take him to a doctor for a routine check up. If he is physically fit, then encorage him to have a fixed daily routine. Like getting up at fixed time, going for a walk, have breakfast, do pooja or read newspaper, (whatever he would like to do) or go to market to buy small items, go to bed at fixed time etc etc. Encourage him to do some exercise (whatever suits him) and yoga/pranayama etc which will keep him fit mentally as well. Encourage him to meet his friends regularly. Encorage him to take up some hobby" empty mind is devil's workshop" so, somehow he needs to be occupied creatively.

actually I am studying for competitive exam I was very much interested in that before 6 months but now all my seriousness has gone I am going to have my exam after 1 month and I am just getting attracted towards porn please say me some thing how to get focus on study and how to leave this porn films.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Its your body's mechanism to distract you from anxiety and tension. Some people may lose sleep some might hav excessive sleep so that anxiety is relieved some find interest in such things. you alone can change or distract you. you realise very well that you are addicted to porn inspite of having exams. That realisation itself is enough. All you can do is sit away from mobile computer sit in a well lit room with study table read good books when you take break. Here are some concentration tips 10 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 Study Notes 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: Flashcards Using Flashcards is 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: Organising Your Study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a study timetable gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational. ExamTime has a free Study Planner tool which makes organising your study extremely easy. 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.

His age is 21 but he still looks like a school kid. He is not all growing.

Psychologist,
His age is 21 but he still looks like a school kid. He is not all growing.
Please be more specific about what you mean by not growing at all. Physically or mentally? some aspects which are genetic cannot be changed like height, facial features etc. Some mental aspects can and may change with time as he grows and gets more experience in life. If you find that he's very much lagging behind his peers in mental development then take him for assessment to clinical psychologist. For physical growth he can participate in physical activity like sports, gym, marathon etc to develop his muscles and look more grown up. However looks are not what matters ultimately. It's their character and personality that makes a person excel in life.

Dear Doctor, I was having gastro issue earlier and went to the endoscopy it's calm down now! Some times I use to have heartpalpication when am getting vomiting and nervousness, finally consult a cardiologist from mixture hospital Hyderabad. After his consultant he said.

I was not getting sleep so doctor suggested to have TRIKA 0.5 mg, should I take this every day after food / do I take for long time! Please clear my doubts!

Dear Doctor,

Trika 0.5 mg is alprazolam, which can be taken for short duration only, maximum 2 weeks. If anxiety requires treatment for long, kindly consult a psychiatrist, who will give better and more appropriate medications. Trika when taken on a longer run cam cause early dementia, shrinking of brain, memory loss, personality changes, withdrawal seizures, irriability and depression. So kindly avoid it, mostly people are made addicted to trika by cardiologist and physician who see the cardiac parameters and sleep and are unaware of the side effects it produces to the mind/ brain. All the best.

Hi, on reading your problem it appears that the person about whom you have talked is suffering from delusion of infidelity. In this, person who is suffering from this remains involved in such activity. The best way to get help is to get help from a psychiatrist. However it is very difficult to treat this but still many cases improved significantly specially in cases in which person suffering from this used to take alcohol.

Dear Vidyasagar. Welcome to lybrate. Masturbation in limit is not unhealthy and is not going to affect your memory. Thrice or four times a week at your age is considered within limit. Stick to masturbation thrice or four times a week and there is no health issue. Take care.

Selfitis and effects

Recently concluded study says taking selfitis is the obessive disorder of clicking one's own photos as a mental disorder taking selfies is ok but a compulsive urge to click yourself and uploaded the image on social media several times a day makes a candidate for selfitis which stems from self confidence
Borderline acute and chronic are the three levels of this disorder and counselling is the way to reduce it

I take tobacco regularly. I want to leave this bad habit. What should I do. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Just the fact that you want to give up smoking though is a good starting point. 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.

I am not able to control my smoking. have tried many medicines bt couldnt get rid of it. What should I do now?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.
