Problem is with your concentration only. Best solution is plan a customised diet chart with a dietitian according to your physiological needs and start with it. Which going to include all required nutrients in balanced amount. Along with other conditions your concentration will also improve. For any further help you can contact me.

I think that your high expectations on yourself and the possibility of not attaining them is causing a lot of frustration and therefore the headaches. I suggest that you implement the following seriously and you will see success: 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 sugar and junk food.

Remember yes or no, okay? Does an iq of 117 makes you bright? I'm aware the next stages are genius level.

Dear Joey. Thanks for the question. The answer is YES. An IQ score of 117 is equivalent to genius except for one or two points. You already know that a score or 120 and above is high level and 117 is near to that. It can be calculated as the person himself is a genius. YES. An IQ score of 117 is counted as almost genius. Take care

Hi, I was an occasional drinker. However off late my drinking has increased and now I drink almost everyday. Eventhough my intake is something like 2 beers at most a day, I have it almost every day. I would like to restrict this habit and be a social drinker. How can I prevent myself from being a full blown alcoholic and control this urge for alcohol.

Hello, this daily drinking habit will lead to dependency. Not sure since hoe long you are having alcohol on daily basis. Find out the triggering factor for alcohol consumption and try to solve it. Do you get craving for alcohol? if you have withdrawal symptoms I would advice you to meet nearby psychiatrist and get treated. You can have dinner before your usual time of drinking which would reduce your craving. Avoid going out with bad company. Spend quality time with family. Try to wake up early morning and practice yoga, breathing exercise, jogging, meditation etc which will keep you motivated. Start taking b complex tablets.

Getting out of Self Doubt (SD)!

MD-Psychiatry, MBBS, Certificate in Medical Neuroscience

Getting out of Self Doubt (SD)!
Step out of Denial Mode
When we never admit there is a problem, we cannot seek a solution. Acknowledge your shortcoming and problems which leaves you helpless. Also, dig into your belief system and thought patterns which help sustain SD. Discuss it with your trusted colleagues in the same settings and how do they manage it? Modify your belief system and coping strategies if required.
Maintain a SMILE Journal/ Diary
Record interesting little things that made you happy today. Write a few lines every time you glean a new lesson from your experiences. These small records will help you cheer up whenever you find yourself stuck in old helpless rut.

Locate your support system
Its important to identify your support system in advance. Individuals who are approachable and can guide you out of dense fog of SD. Someone who can help you in modifying existing coping strategies for desirable results.
Maintain Emotional Wellbeing
While trying to step out of SD its important to take care of your emotional wellbeing. Continuous struggle, chances of relapse, exhaustion may lead to frustration and thus anger outbursts, which are capable of diminishing all the progress you have made so far. Learn how to express anger in a healthy way, so that you can use it as an effective tool instead of spoiling everything.
Let go of Fear
A pinch of Fear can do more damage than all criticism summed up. Let go of all excuses & false beliefs that comes in the way of helping yourself. Since everything you tried till date didn’t worked its time to try something new. Start with breaking strings from self doubt. Parent your inner child in the process. Foster making mistakes and take the opportunity to learn something new rather than demoralizing yourself.
I hope these steps at your personal level shall boost you to step out of SD and if nothing works, seek help from a compassionate therapist to ride this rip.

I am 47 years old. I forget lot of things. I have short of memory. I am unable to take a decision immediately. Sometimes I feel very low about future security.

Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory??’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Avoid suing the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Geo Satellite Navigation may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Stop Using the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables?! It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain!

Video Game and Negative Effects on Brain

Recent study been found that people who play action games on a regular basis may undergo brain changes associated with certain kinds of neurological and psychiatric disorders. It could mean that gamers are putting their minds at risk.

I am in a relationship with a girl, but due to twisted consequences we are keeping it secret, we have a common friend, he is also in love with her, but she is afraid to tell him that she is in love with me, she fears that it will break him emotionally, she doesn't want me to tell it either, I am getting affected by this, this is getting harder and harder I don't want to break up with her, but it is killing me inside, I don't know what to do help me.

In life sometimes we have to chose between what is" not a good option" and what is" a bad option" everytime we do not have the opportunity to chose between" good" and" bad" hence, sometimes decisions become very tough. In your case, it appears that you are not ready to take the risk of declaring your relationship with the girl to your family and friends. It also appears to me that the girl is more concerned about your friend's emotions than yours. You both need to sit and discuss the issue. You need to tell her that this secrecy is affecting you badly. You both need to know that you have to accept" natural consequences" of your actions. In any case you will have to tell others about your relationship. So instead of maintaining secrecy at the cost of your feelings it is advisable to take risk of declaring it now, to avoid future consequences.

Dear lybrate-user, you have probably a grandiose delusion that you are a big businessman or big star or big rowdy. You feel irritated if your wife is talking on phone. You also have symptoms of depression like, no interest to brush, shave, dress or go to office. You have negative thoughts. You may be suffering from a bipolar disorder. You may be in mixed phase now. There are other medical, hormonal and few drugs/substances like alcohol, may be causing these symptoms. Please go to a psychiatrist and get diagnosed. It will be treated according to the diagnosis. Please do it soon before you lose your job and develop problems with your wife.
