Hi, you have scored really well in your 10th and intermediates. If you aren't able to study well in your b. Tech then either you are not interested in the course and doing it maybe because you have been told to do so. You need to figure out what and where does your interest lie. Is this the course that would help you in your chosen career. If yes then try to create a schedule for your study. Chunk your portions into doable sets and follow your time table. Don't leave your studies for last moment exam panics. Make study a regular habit and you will be able to achieve the percentage that you wish to get. All the best!

You and your girlfriend are liking each other and are wanting to have sex regularly. There is nothing wrong in it if you both are physically and mentally matured enough to have sex and if you both are unmarried and are having protected sex. This is not addiction. What makes you think that, you want to get rid of this? how do you look at this relationship matters a lot. Is it very casual for you both? or do you both want to take it to the next level and want to be committed to each other? kindly think about all such related issues. All the best.

Don't worry. Be confident. Believe in yourself. You can do it. Medicine will only support you. You have to increase your confidence by yourself. Practice speaking with others. Start with your mirror n then slowly with family friends n then strangers. No one can judge you. You only know what you are. So just cheer up. Life is beautiful, enjoy it when you call someone take deep breath n say to yourself I am the best n I can't do anything wrong. Take lycopodium 200 4 pills once a week for 15 days and then revert. Take care.

My daughter short type memory what can I do her mind study she learn but after some time his mind blank.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This may be a recent development and it is primarily because of her age. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting her ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time she could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: she will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, she will become sexually active, and she will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact her memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But she may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if she goes to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else she is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that her 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. She should 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. She needs to check out if she is stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if she combines the two modes, she 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 she gets bored, study by writing. If she repeats learning at least five to seven times, she 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 left nostril and breathe, move 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 she must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that her teacher will be able to guide her with. If the home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect her 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.

I have a lover who is interested in sexual videos and relations with strangers. His parent came to know about this and tried to inform me. For that reason he has beaten up them very badly and still lies to me and make me believe that they against him and trying to kill him. How can we all get him back normal? what should I do?

These type of persons are sexually manic persons, very rigid in their thoughts, implement their rules on others, doesnot listen to anyone. Thinks what they say is right nd are very manipulative by nature means their convincing power is very high. So be alert and dont indulge in any sexual activity with your lover .as I am afraid that these type of people r self centered and once they get what they want, they r out for next target. So dont be a target and avoid sexual contact and if you are seriously thinking of marriage with him, then avoid sex before marriage and once married all will be normal with your love and dedication.

I am 21 years old boy. Due to some depression I am smoking daily basis. How much it can harm me.

MD, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
I am 21 years old boy. Due to some depression I am smoking daily basis. How much it can harm me.
Hi lybrate-user, if you know that excessive smoking is due to depression then that should be dealt with first. As depression is caused due to an imbalance of a chemical in the brain, hence to restore that balance medicines would be required and simultaneously we can also deal with your smoking problem too. As per your question regarding how much smoking could harm you. Smoking might be helping you to release your tensions and that is the reason you might be smoking on a daily basis, but it is only temporary and in turn harms your body too. If it could help people in releasing tension then it would have been prescribed by doctors as a medicine but unfortunately it doesn't:) hope you find this answer useful.

I can understand what you as parents have gone through. Sometimes life's stresses precipitate an episode of depression. But its treatable and with some medications and counselling she will be able to cope with her situation in a much better way. Also it will be helpful to you as a family. Please seek help from psychiatrist as if left untreated depression can cause a lot of distress and problems.

7 Foods that Boost Your Memory!

Eating healthy is very helpful for your mental and also your physical well-being. The mind requires nutrients just like your heart, muscles and lungs do. These can be derived from the following ingredients.

  1. Berries: Berries, particularly dark ones, such as cherries, blackberries and blueberries, are a great source of anthocyanins and different flavonoids that can boost your memory. Try to consume these in small portions at least twice a day. You can enjoy a handful in the form of snacks, add them in your cereal or bake them into a dessert like muffins or pancakes. Fresh, frozen or dried berries and cherries can reap you a lot of benefits other than memory boost as well.
  2. Avocados: Avocados are green powerhouse and are stuffed with mono-saturated fats containing both vitamin K and folate. Avocados prevent blood clots in the brain, protect you against strokes and enhance the cognitive capacity of the brain, both in terms of memory as well as concentration.

  6. Pumpkin seeds: Highly rich in zinc than most seeds, pumpkin seeds supply this highly valuable mineral which is very important for improving memory and thinking abilities. These little seeds are also loaded with stress-busting magnesium, B vitamins and tryptophan that is a precursor to the good mood substance called serotonin.

I want to stop drinking alcohol and I want stop smoking also please give suggestion.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must, on a war footing, exercise restraint and stop the use of all these substances. Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of alcoholism and tobacco use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by yourself because you have become addicted to alcohol and tobacco and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you do not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely drunk, and admit you by force. This will however, require the wife and family’s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions.

Feeling anxious about certain things, especially facts, is quite normal. It is usually the severity of anxiety and its management which decides whether it is a disorder or not. If you feel anxious every now and then, or to an extent that it becomes very distressing for you, or you feel unable to avoid thinking of issues you do not want to, you might need an assessment for anxiety disorder. Consult a psychiatrist for assessment and counselig.
