You are controlling your attitude. But it is very difficult to you control long time. In this time expert advise and therapy by the expert is needed to you very much. It is better to avoid friend circle those who have smoke tendencies. Develop busy schedule on that time. Divert the thoughts towards other aspects. Eat some of the small tiffins on that time. Talk with friends in cell. Spend most of the time with your family members. Make a good career plan. Do hard work for your career aspects. Do not waste time to think unnecessary aspects. Attend yoga and meditation classes. Attend personality development classes. If not possible yourself. Better to take the help of psychologist. Psychological counselling is always best. It has no side effects. It improves your life style modification. Ok all the best.

Dear sir my problem is a memorable. Like I read something after ten minutes I forget what I read. Please make a solution.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

Hello, aap ek tarah ki anxiety se safar kar rahe hai, jisme kuch unhoni hone ka dar laga rehta hai, per pata nahi hota kya. Fear of death. Remember to take a deep breath and try to find something to do to get your mind off of you anxieties and stresses. A person could take a walk, listen to some music, read the newspaper, watch tv, play on the computer or do an activity that will give them a fresh perspective on things. This will distract you from your current worries. A lot of times, our worrying can make the problem even worse. All the worrying in the world will not change anything. All you can do is to do your best each day, hope for the best, and when something does happen, take it in stride. If you still have trouble managing your anxiety of the future, then talking to a counselor or clergyman can be of great help. There are ways to help manage your fear and all it takes is some effort to find those answers. Aap psychiatrist se consult kare.

How to confidently drive my car. I got my licence but my parents try to bring me down by demoralizing me. They tell me to drive the car but also say that I would end up in some problem if I don't drive with my dad. My dad keeps panicking me on road for no use. Me and my friend got license together. He is now able to drive about 2000 km whereas I never crossed 20 km. The problem is my mom makes me think low about myself and have self doubt. I was a good driver but after I took my parents car im all the way getting nervous to drive the car. Please help me how to gain back my self confidence. Please.

Dear Lybrate user. Confidence in driving a car comes after having experience in driving a car. Others will demoralize you. Don't worry. Nervousness is part of learning. Accept it as it is. You will become confident within a month if you drive daily. Take care.

I can't sleep because I still remember her. Even little things somewhere find associations with her. She cheated on me with her boss while I was busy making a life to be together with her. I'm broken completely mentally. I cry almost everyday. I can't get her out of my head. I have tried forgetting her but it just does not happen at all. I left my job in another country to be with her in India. And this is what she did to me. I've abused her after I found out, but even that isn't liberating enough. I'm broken down completely. Help me get out of this. I am only 26 and a huge career ahead of me. I need to take care of my parents too. I can't get her feelings get in my way. I've tried a lot. Help me forget her. Please I beg you.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Love is deeper and more emotional than any other relationship. That is why forgetting is trouble. Recent research shows trying to forget worsens your agony. Therefore don't try to forget. Keep those memories. Let those memories come. Learn to enjoy them. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

I joined MBBS on August 2010. On January 2011 my relatives bet me continuously for around 3 to 4 hours front of public that to all known fellows and for no reason they did that and later many people remembered that incident regularly by making fun of me for almost 2 years means from January 2011 to December 2012. And moreover previously few days before my relatives bet me I was been ragged by college seniors so I had went home. But my relatives bet me telling I was lying and ran home to quit medical and etc bad things about me. and later they kept on spreading negatives about me which I had not done. Infact even to my college Dean, Professors and Clerk. So everyday from Jan 2011 to June 2011 one or the other was scolding me. So I fear+sadness I didn't met anybody whom I know or anybody new. And parents were neutral. And flunked in June 2011 (1st year MBBS exam. And from that day till now I am dying in fear+sadness+anger on relatives+more anxiety+no proper sleep+not taking food properly+still not able to mingle with people. Didn't pass and trying to study or work or do something but couldn't do. Unable to forget those 6 months till today. I am sure I am not lying. So am I normal? Am I useless to live? I want to complete MBBS and even do PG. At that time my age was 18 and now almost 24 years. Is it worth if I start 1st year MBBS again.

Dear lybrate user, first of all, I want to tell you, that do not make negative comments to yourself and negative and pessimistic ruminations about self. Because you have that incident happened and because you were not aware of any reason behind why your relatives treated in an in-humanitarian manner, clearly reflects their insensitivity towards you and to humanity in general. Because a normal understanding person will not treat other person like this. Second due to this traumatic experience you were not able to concentrate and study also which is but obvious, as anyone who is in such kind of situation will definitely feels fearful, angry and anxious. Further, meeting with such people or even talking about them would make you more helpless and difficult to trust people around. I would suggest you to continue your studies which you have stopped in between and it is definitely worth full if you will study hard and put best efforts again to do mbbs and distract more in pleasurable activities which you find enjoyable and relaxing. Also, it is important for you to understand that you can not change people or their attitude, the only thing you can do is to manage yourself and adopt better coping mechanism which makes you more proactive towards any kind of challenging or difficult situation. Even if your relatives keep saying some bad words for you, do not give weight to them as they are of no use. Your aim is to achieve higher and success in life. Consult a clinical psychologist, who can deeply and better do management of psychological issues like, anger, fear and sadness and how you can socially adjust in any kind of environment. Take care.

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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Detailed assessment is needed. Like the reason behind smoking, number of cigarettes and comorbid medical condition. Next you should be assessed for withdrawal from smoking and for reducing further craving. Thre are medications to reduce nicotine craving too. If you consult a psychiatrist they will be able to help you. All the best.

My age is 23 yrs. Preparing for govt. Exams for last 2 years ,my exams are in next few weeks and this is going to be my last attempt as I already wasted two precious years of my life. Still I don't feel like studying I am tensed and stressed I know if I fail this time also my life is going to be miserable .all people around me of my age group have a job but still I am not working hard to get a job for myself. I think l lost interest in these exams. I am not a hard working person. Earlier I use to study but for few months I don't feel like doing anything just sitting thinking negative ,getting frustrated and stressing unnecessary instead of studying. I think this year also I am not going to be selected. I am getting frustrated as I know I am not working hard so I won't be able to clear this time also. Nobody in my family can understand what I am feeling and going through. I have a lot of personality issues timid ,introvert ,negative thinking ,rigid ,poor communications skills (I cannot even talk to sales or customer care people ,imagine my level )and many more bad qualities. Also have no friends for like so many years .These two years also enhanced my personality problems as I mostly stayed indoors and appearance wise also gained a lot of weight. I don't like going out. Also when I think of other alternatives (if not selected) I feel I won't be able to sustain as I am low confident and not able to make friends .i hv a negative outlook of life and I feel everything in future is going to be negative. Not moving forward in life no growth just stagnant like a tree ,all the people / friends I use to know are doing wonderful thing s in life and growing each day and I still the same as I used to be. Right now I'm feeling depressed and hopeless.

Dear Kajal, I can understand the problems you are facing and the situation you are in. I think it is best for you to consult a good mental health expert in your locality at the earliest. I can suggest a few things here, but considering that your exams are fast approaching, we need to work out a relatively quick and effective solution which may not be possible here.So please do not delay any further as the way you are feeling can be altered making your studies more effective and help you in succeeding in your exams. Take care!

Dear lybrate-user. I hope you know about bipolar disorder. According to the severity of the symptoms, it could take around 6 months to 5 years for treatment. Some bipolar patients have to continue medicines throughout their life. Work with your psychiatrist for an earlier cure. Take care.
