Dear Rachel, Welcome to lybrate. At your age, Memory problems like amnesia, dementia or Alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. You should be able to learn books in a way that you will not forget anything. "effective learning methods" will be useful to you. Consult a psychologist. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Plan ahead - write down things what you want to accomplish. Eat a good breakfast meditate- enhances certain brain functions linked to attention. Do smaller tasks - split up projects into individual tasks so they're easier to accomplish. Reward yourself take little breaks.

Dear, thanks for sharing your problem. I will try to help you. Look, in your case it appears that your mind remains pre-occupied with some thoughts and as a result you often can not pay attention to desired events, tasks. These thoughts may be worries, apprehension or mind pleasing. Such a thing can happen with any body. If you remember that you forget, it means your memory is ok, your mind seems to be elsewhere for the time. You may be stressed/ depressed and may be thinking about past/present/future excessively. If so, you need a psychiatric consultation to rule out anxiety/ stress.

Sir/Mam, I am a student and pursuing B.tech.I want to quit smoking as I wanted to make a career in bodybuilding, but the reason why I continuously fail to quit this habit after making commitment is mainly due to the following reasons:- 1.**Smoker friends say that smoking 1-2 cigrate in a weekly basis or smoking socially has negligible effect on health.** 2.**When I concentrate on bodybuilding and think smoking could effect my stamina and strength. But on the contrary I see famous personalities like ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, SYLVESTER STALLONE ,etc are smoking and still have such good physique .by all these thinking my mind gets confused and I think. It's fine to smoke as many people who smoke are yet successful in various fields.** ##SO SERIOUSLY HELP ME OUT WHAT TO DO I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT IS GOOD TO RELY ON SUCH FACTS AND DO SMOKE#. HOPING AND EAGERLY WAITING FOR YOUR REPLY.

Dear Rajeev, "Smoking is injurious to health" is the warning given on each pack of cigarettes. There is no doubt about it. Nicotine in cigarettes is a stimulant that gives instant energy and increases the performance. That is why many who started smoking could not give up. For each smoker personalities there are 100s non smoker personalities who are famous. You can not go on anecdotal examples. You have to think in statistical terms. Congratulations for deciding to quit smoking. If you can avoid your smoker friends and smoking environment for 12 weeks continuously, you will be able to stick to your commitment. It is difficult = but not impossible. In a passive smoking environment your motivation to quit smoking goes down to a very low level confusing you. Try hard to find friends who don't smoke and who go for body building. Join with them for 3-6 months not only physically even virtually. Quitting smoking has many health benefits apart from body building. It increases your breathing capacity and protects your heart with tough exercises. All the best.

I am 42 years old working woman and I am obsessed with daily horoscopes and astrology I read daily horoscope and fear all day what should I do also I have a friend on whom I have spent lakhs rupees but I feel unappreciated I take venize xr and etirest

Psychologist,
If you don' t get help with reading horoscopes and astrology, then stop reading them. You are the best judge of what to do, when to do and how to do. Successful people don' t read horoscopes to excel in life. They go out and do things that are important for them. If you sit in fear and don' t do anything, you will never achieve anything. If you have to eat, then you have to learn to cook and then eat that food. You can take a horse to the pond, but the horse has to make the effort to drink the water.

Ou have to get mind control by meditaion and yoga and control your anger and a counselling is the best for you . Ican give anger control tips ANGER: There is a saying "Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression." Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. GIVING UP: Giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. LOSS OF CONFIDENCE: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that If we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself "It is worth it!" and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. STRESS: is the "wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. DEPRESSION: Depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. OTHER REACTIONS: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions Whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Anger is among the gamut of emotions we exhibit as a reaction to a situation, and it is a 'normal' emotion too as long as it is kept under control. Some people have the propensity to explode when pushed to the extreme. They keep swallowing their emotions until they can finally do it no more, and erupt like a volcano. Others dealing with extreme anger are like a ticking time bomb. You'll never know what you unwittingly say or do can trigger an explosion. In either case, anger that cannot be controlled comes with a physical reaction. Your heart beats faster preparing you for both action and reaction. Your breathing quickens. You may clench your fist, tighten your shoulders and go into a defensive position. The problem arises out of the fact that it is almost impossible to feel anger and empathy at the same time. An angry person is seldom sensitive to the wellbeing of his victim, and hence may lash out verbally and sometimes physically. Such things done in the heat of the moment mostly leaves us with regrets.

I am 25 female. Suffering from major breakdown in every area of my life. One bad incident and whole life came crashing down. I am trying very hard to deal with it but it just seems impossible to come out of of. Death seems to be the only way to freedom from this struggle. But problem is, I am not a weak person and though I really want to anyhow just free myself from this, suicide is not my way.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Definitely yes. Suicide is not your way. You have enough experience fighting negative situations in your life. All those situations gave you a lot of positive lessons which are your greatest assets. Be proud of them. As you had see many negatives, the bright part is near. Don't surrender. Positives are round the corner. Be patient. Take care.

Hi, the best advise for you would be that you take him to a psychologist - where he can be treated for this phobia by using behavioral technique called systematic desensitization. Here is a brief summary of the steps you will go through in desensitizing yourself: step 1. Anxiety hierarchy. First, you will construct an anxiety hierarchy, which is a list of those situations involved in and leading up to your target situation ranked in order from the lease disturbing to the most disturbing. Step 2. Relaxation training. Then you will train yourself in deep muscle relaxation. Step 3. Desensitization sessions. You will then go through a series of desensitization sessions. At the beginning of a session, using what you've learned from your deep muscle relaxation training (to be explained), you will relax. You will then imagine a scene representing the weakest item on your hierarchy while maintaining your relaxed state. A given step on your anxiety hierarchy must be repeatedly imagined until you no longer exhibit anxiety at the presentation of it. You will then imagine the next higher anxiety-producing step, and so on. Thus, the anxiety cues are gradually decreased until you can present the most frightening step without feeling any anxiety whatsoever.

You need to manage your time well If you are feeling burnt out take leave from work for a few days even if that means deduction in pay. See where you are losing out time. Plan the day carefully. See how you can use free time during work hours. If still problem persists medicine can help you although it will need medical supervision. But it is easy to start and will improve how you feel, improve energy as well as efficiency.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hello everyone wants to remain young for ever but ageing can't be postponed or avoided. You can minimize its effects by healthy life style, exercising for 30-40 minutes daily, eat healthy food and keeping sex on the top of priority list. Try and understand what is most arousing for your husband and take care of your own.
