Becoming fat is common thing in this current trend. If you are bothered by this, You can do certain things to change the situation. Insist your wife to go for a walk early in the morning for about half-an-hour. Tell her to talk nutrients food and on a healthy diet. To make her satisfied, you can also go with her in the morning which will help to boost your metabolism as well. If you could see that your wife is reducing weight, working on to reduce the weight, hope your hesitation will also get resolved. Weight reduction will not alone helps for satisfied sexual relationship, also helps her stay fit.

Dear, 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. Take care.

I am 20 years old and I feel depression because of my study I am in engineering and simultaneously I am in love with someone what should I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time?

Dear lybrate user. Memory and mind power depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. Your brain stores information according what you perceive and it also depends on past experience. Understanding is the key. the more better understand, the more better will be the storage and retention. Once the brain retain it properly and stores in someplace where it can be retrieved easily, the more easy for it to recollect. So the basic step in remembrance is understanding. Make sure you understand whatever you study. There are "effective learning techniques" to help you. Physical exercise, outdoor games, indoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc also play an important part in improving brain power. Include green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts etc in your daily diet. Make sure to play brain games like sudoku atleast once in a week. All the above, together, contributes to keep your brain sharp and healthy. Take care.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation. If you are feeling hopeless or suicidal consult a psychiatrist immediately.

Hello Lybrate user, chid chid Krna, kisiki na Sunna, bina sochke decision lena, ye sabhi aapke behavior ki instability ko show krta hai. Aap nishchit hi kisi particular vishay ko lekr bahot jyada disturb hai, jo aapke behavior se show ho raha hai. Pareshaan hone ki koi baat nhi hai. Every problem comes with its solution. We always need to think about the solution. You need to spend some quality time with yourself. Kuch samay shant hoke bathiye and think about your problem. Ek samay main ek hi problem ko lekr sochiye. Then you will get some solutions. Jindagi bahot hi khubsurat hai, enjoy the journey of the life. My good wishes are always with you. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. You just feel weak and sad, like going in great despair. But formal talking is ok. Are you disappointed due to some life events or academic events? otherwise, this could be just your personality type. Change your attitude according to your personality type. Take care.
