Top 4 Ways You Can Increase Your Willpower
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.

Please first visit a psychologist and get psychological testing done to confirm if you have ocd or ocd like symptoms. If it is ocd, you will be cured by medicines but in case reports reveal you have ocd like symptoms, then psychotherapy is the cure, medicines will not help much. Psychotherapy is treatment given by talking and a psychologist is the specialist who treats psychological problems without medicines.

Many of us are not aware when we are under stress. Please explore this with a counselor and you will be surprised how much pressure we are under without our knowledge. When you address that memory will return to you happily. Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: 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 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 the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: 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 junk food.

Please do check if you are having continuous fever or not. Also check if you are sleeping under fan/ac - avoid so. Also check your hb% and calcium levels once. Take rhus tox 200 - twice daily for next 3-4 days only. Get back to me for further treatment.

Dear Lybrate user In this age of modernisation every thing is changing very rapidly specially moral values and humanity .Everyone is becoming self centred and thinking about themselves only But it does't mean there is nothing positive in this world, what it requires is slightly change in our perception ,Don't wait for condition to be good Do some efforts to make condition good, you are asking for help means you are ready to change this situation that's the positive point .think about few things whether any thing bothering you. You need to find the cause. You can take help of any counsellor regarding this. If you need my help you can contact me.in the mean time do few things ,it will make difference-- 1.make some good friends. 2.Do some new activity .As per as research on human behaviour it is found that if we get something new intresting we forget everything for few days. Think in which activity you are intrested. 3. Try to interact with people as much as you can. I know if you will go around people mentally you will not be there but its ok slowly you will feel better. 4.make some plan with friends. 5.make yourself busy. 6.make short targets and work to do for particular day 7.your brain should be in active condition and its up to you that how can you make it in active condition you can join music class or dance class, or can take tution or can do painting or can go for long drive or make some friend on any social site or can try cooking. 8.watch comedy show 9 Don't give time to yourself so that you don't get time to think 10 Last but most important do yoga ,meditation, deep breathing exercise such as inhale air forcibly and exhale air forcibly. Take care.

Hi, obesity is a serious problem in any age. The common causes are mostly sedentary life style, food habits and may be some medication related. Your father 1st has to be assessed for the reason of his obesity. Then only a proper planning for therapy can be done. But for the time being he can control his diet, has to prevent the total calorie intake as per his diet requirement. You can consult a dietician for that. You can motivate him for morning walk at least thrice in a wk for 30 mints duration. This will help him a lot. Once he starts walking he will feel good. You have to review his medication (with doctor). If wt gain is medication induced has to change or stop the offending agents. Thanks.

I love a girl very much. and going to propose her. I love her that much as I can only see her as my wife. But sometimes i'm not able to trust her. I think she is lying. So that should I do to increase my faith in her. I do not want to loose her.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have not mentioned whether she loves you too. That will make a huge difference to this issue you are facing. If she loves you too, you must learn to trust her until she proves she is trustworthy. You have not mentioned on what basis you have a lack of faith in her. If hse has proven that she cannot be trusted it would indeed be foolish to trust such a person however much you love her. Anyway, when you are in a relationship you must trust the person and if you cannot then give up the girl and find someone you can trust. Trust is integral to any relationship. Whenever you feel she is lying and you have proof, then confront her and see how she responds. It is better to deal with the lying now than later. Another thing, do not think of marriage at this juncture. it is too early and there will be many other girls who will cause your heart to flutter. That is exactly why we have an engagement: to find out whether you can make it with this girl by discovering her traits and to see if they match yours. When you have an agenda like marriage up front, you will rui9n the relationship by wanting to own the person and controlling and such things that will destroy the courtship. You may be insecure yourself and I am wondering whether you are suitable for her or not. You just have to trust her and when she really proves that she lies too much, then you can take a call even if she is your dream girl. All of us lie even you. So I do not know what moral compass you think you are following but check that out first and see if she and you are within the bounds of normal lying.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mindpower depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. You should be able to understand the passage or the information given perfectly so as to help your brain to retain the information or knowledge. Once it is retained properly, recollection happens whenever a memory relation is given. Understanding usually requires creative learning methods and repetition. Providing rest to your brain every half hour while studying continuously help improve concentration. Physical exercises, entertainment, socialization improves memory. Diet which includes fruits, vegetables, nuts also improves memory. Mind games like Sudoku too help. Please understand these facts and apply them on your daily routine. Take care.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
At your age there may be a lot of distractions going on that may be the cause of the problem. Even so there are some things to do that will alleviate the situation, if you followed them meticulously. If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. 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.

Because of family problems. You are affected with depressive thoughts. You need rest. You are frustrating internally. It is called post trauma stress. You need friendly support that may not available in home always worrying about family matters. Better to take the help of your parents and relatives. Express your internal problems with them. Do not be alone. Everyone have problems. You are repeatedly thinking alone it may cause depressiveness. Because depressive thoughts your mood also swings time to time. Please do not sit alone. Share the problems with others. Take good food. Take rest most of the time. Do not think too much about your husband. He is not understand your problems then why do you give much priority to husband words. Leave it or take it easy. Give priority for yourself. Ok best wishes always with you. Ok best of luck.
