Dear Vab, Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

I am going through a lot of issues in my life. With each passing day my problems are increasing with no solutions and every time I decide to quit, somehow I survive. I don't know how and why? I've tried taking away my life many times but nothing works. I'm having a lot of confusion in my life. I really need a counselor to talk to me regarding this. I'm in complete stress. I'm in fear I just don't go in depression.

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.

Ways to Keep You Stress Free and Keep Your Baby Happy

Ways to Keep You Stress Free and Keep Your Baby Happy

If you are stressed and wondering if this anxiety will affect the health of your child, you can be assured that you will have an uncomplicated childbirth and a healthy baby. It is absolutely normal to be stressed to some extent regarding the changes that are taking place in your life and to your body. But that doesn’t mean you can be stressed all the time and if this is the case with you, then you should seek professional help as high anxiety levels can adversely affect the health of your baby. This is because the cortisol or stress hormone may cross the placenta and create an impact on the emotional development of the baby.

There are various ways of staying stress free during pregnancy, and they are simple enough to be incorporated in your daily routine.

  1. Take enough rest and concentrate on your baby: It is good for you and the baby if you relax. You should sing and talk to your baby and you will be happy to know that he or she can hear you from around 23rd week. This would also allow you to bond better with your child after the birth takes place.
  2. Talk about your stress with people you trust: If you have any tension or worries regarding your child’s well-being, you can always communicate it to your best friend, your mother or anyone you faith in. You should never hesitate to be honest about your thoughts and feelings, and when you are true to yourself, you are likely to receive the support you require. You should talk to your partner as well and you may be surprised to know that both of you share similar worries and that your partner has some concerns that you are unaware about.
  3. Eat well and stay healthy: Eating tasty as well as nutritious food is good for your mind and body. Take in as many minerals, vitamins and Omega-3 fatty acids as you can, as these will help in elevating your mood. It is believed that the amino acid named tryptophan can help you get rid of all the tensions and boost your mood. It also helps in raising the levels of serotonin and melatonin that allow you to sleep better and make you feel well rested.

With little exercise and pampering, you will be able to reduce the stress and feel comfortable about your pregnancy. But in case you feel that you are stressed out without any control, you must consider consulting a doctor.

You should not neglect this condition any more. Please visit a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor please do so without any hesitation. Even if you are put on any medication, do not discontinue the counseling. This condition and the symptoms you mention and the duration of this situation is not reading well at all. The condition has to be diagnosed and then a treatment plan will be put in place. You must cooperate with all the prescriptions right through the follow-up. Do not depend on medication alone but keep working with the counselor to develop some skills and techniques to cope with your condition and to deal with the daily challenges of life. The anger accompanies such disturbances and you will need to do some emotional therapy too. Handling feelings and expressing them in appropriate ways is going to be a great help for your recovery. Regular exercise, proper rest and a healthy diet must be a part of your daily life.

My son is speechless but he can hear everything nicely and his eye contact is ok. Now his age is 26 months but he can't talk. Now what to do?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Even you are considering hearing to be normal, consult an ENT specialist from first and then go for BERA if they suggest. If hearing is normal but speech is not there it can be either normal as developmental milestones may vary child to child or problem with association centre in brain or motor speech area which can be ruled out with neurological examination plus neuroimaging or it can be problem with articulation which will be ruled out by ENT specialist itself. So you first meet ENT specialist and then if needed meet neurologist. After that it child has any of problem stated above meet speech and hearing therapist. This would suffice for your child problem.

If there is no reason it only means that the issue has some early childhood foundation and your parents will be able to throw some light on it. Then meet with a counselor along with your parents and deal with this issue to resolve the anxiety attacks. Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.
