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.

Hi there ~ there are many medications that can help treat depression and this is something that you might need to discuss with your psychiatrist. You are on medications for a very long time and right now it has not been helpful. I hope this helps in the way that you can find options to have your depression treated. Medications including but not limited to escitalopram, vilazodone, sertraline, bupropion, desvenlafaxine, duloxetine, etc may be other options however I strongly advise you to consult a psychiatrist before switching to other medications or adding another medication on to your current therapy. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

Few things related to headache so that we can plan the treatment accordingly - if pain is associated with blurred or decreased vision than check your eye sight for refractive error - if the pain is associated with cold and fever than we have to rule out sinusitis as the cause and if the pain is pulsatile in nature and with a throbbing pain usually with an aura than we have to rule out migrane as the cause - if the pain is associated with neck problems than we have to rule out cervical spondylosis as the cause - if the pain is associated with either low or high bp or due to hyperacidity than we have to treat the cause after examination.

You are first of fooling around with medications: if the doctor has prescribed it then it was for a good reason. If you have attacks in the future the doctor will certainly give you more. Panic attacks are fear based, and you will tend to exaggerate the response to the stimulus. What happened when these attacks started may have some bearing on your state. The other possibility is that your constitution may have undergone a bit of change favoring the negative side. If you have been on prolonged stress quite unaware to yourself, then it is possible that that stress may have lowered your defenses. Any which way you look at it, your response to fear is not normal and therefore the panic. Work with a counselor: medication is not enough to help you process these emotions and to deal with it so that it does not escalate in this manner. You will probably not show any signs of medical problems because the effects have not yet reached physical proportions. It will though, if this situation is not brought under control. The quicker you work on this in therapy, the easier life is going to be. Constant and persistent stress will lower your immune system that you may develop other complications. You seem keen to sort this out and that is good motivation. Now work at it with hammer and tongs and sort out the fear. For your constitution I advise a lot of exercise, meditation, eat healthily, sleep adequately, pray with faith, love people and yourself, and be positive. Combine medication with counseling and you will get best results. If you want to be free of medication then in counseling you will develop new skills and techniques to deal with life's issues and can come off of medicines for good.

Dear lybrate user. I think you are surrendering to his blackmailing tactics. You have to clearly state the intentions. You want him to study better and score good marks. For that he needs to get rid of mobile and other tv programs. You and he needs it for his future. You have to tell him this and be stubborn. I also suggest online behaviour counselling to your son. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, realize its not the end of the world. You have to move on and time will not wait for anyone. Instead of looking at past you have start building your future. Establish yourself, make meaningful relations etc. I know its hard but thats the key- surround yourself with people (positive people) do what you like, learn to prioritize things- what is important for you in the moment? make small achieve bale goals- and try to be successful in it. Take help from a psychologist. Everything will be alright.

If she is having marital problem, the best option would be marital therapy. The success of marriage depends on participation and compromises by both husband and wife. However if your daughter has developed depression, she must be treated first for that, before any counselling is started.

Best way to improve memory power and concentration ?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
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. Take care.

You are right. There is lot of confusion in the student's mind about which career to choose after 12th. Especially now a days there are whole lot of career options, hence it is all the more difficult. A student needs to understand the following things while choosing a career: 1. What subject she/he is good at, and would like to study further - 2. What kind of job she/he would like to do for the rest of his/her life. What will give her/him job satisfaction. 3. What kind of life style or money she/he wants to earn 4. What kind of jobs are available if she/he pursues the subjects of his/her interest 5. Whether such jobs will be suitable for him/her physically/mentally 6. What is your family's social and economic background and what do you want to achieve after considering the above points also consider if you want a govt. Job or a private job or if you would like to have your own business. If possible go for" career counselling" - which is a 1 and 1/2 hrs exam which will tell you about your strengths and weaknesses and will help you choosing your career. All the best.

My brother is 14 years old. Since his childhood he posses with very aggressive nature, stubborn, and very selfish. He can stand with anyone & he don't have any friend. He always think of himself that's why he fought with every one n don't listen to any one and got irritated on small things. Once we can consider this a personality trait or variety in child behavior. But he doesn't think & speak according to his age. He is 14 n talks likes a 8-10 years boy. He got irritated on very small things. Sometimes without any reason n when he is angry he gets mad, he hurt himself physically, slaps himself very tightly, eat rotten things & vegetables peels, once he dipped his slipper in tea n drink dat. He licks slipper also. He often threaten us that he will kill himself, send him to orphanage, I don't want to live long, everyone scolds me, no one can stop this at dat time, physically also he can't be control, he throw things, clothes, mobile etc. And few time he wounded himself wife fork, once threatening with knife. And he don't want to go school, he got irritated on teachers. About one - one month he didn't go to exams even sometimes skip his exams also. He got beaten very badly 4 dis thing bt nothing works, he is used to with this. Ne never cries when he was beaten, nor a single tear appears into his eyes. He'll die bt nvr go. No power on earth can change his mind. Even I got hurts wen I saw this and marks on his body bt de did not feel anything n after some time he behaves normally. Don't have any regret that is doing wrong. No stress or pain can not be seen on his face. Infact he fully enjoys whole day. And in addition he make high demands n few times he put conditions for going school. And wen his demand get full filled he happily go 2-4 day again got irregular. He is in 8th standard and I didn't think he had continuously attend d school more than a week. We have changed so many schools bt he never get comfortable in any school. Till 3rd he was comfortable but nor regular there also. He always got 94-98% till den. Bt after completed dat primary school he is transformed. He don't have adjusting & compromising nature not even for his parents or siblings. He loves his family a lot n also can't live without us. But for him HE himself comes first. On 5 JUNE OUR "MOM EXPIRED" due to Cancer. He lover her a lot n got pampered by her a lot. She was d only one who calm down her mostly & convince him to go school. He always sleep wit mom. He calls her to make him sleep. N after that she can go. BT now he never talks about her n did not said to anyone dat he misses her. 4-5 days he talks abt her. He has very easily excepted her death. Dat was surprising. It was not easy for his age. We were in hospital n was mentally prepared. He calls every hour to know abt her n we never tell d truth n said pray 4 her. He was very concern n whole time pray 4 her. Now he is 2 times more arrogant n rude, n dangerous for himself. He has quit his studies, whole day wat h TV or play games on mob. N always laying on bed whole day. Very rarely he sits when he is asked to do. In dat also he gets irritated. Now he never talks politely wid us esp wen we asked about him or his hygiene. He has become so lazy that he CNT give one glass water to anyone. That's a huge burden 4 him. His body reaction n face expressions reveal every thing. Sometimes he is talks very friendly. Wen ever I got sick he do a lot work. Make tea 4 me. Bring everything which I asked. Days d whole story & in this session he has attended classes max 10 days. He had d worst bad habit of chewing sweet flavoured supari. Since 6-8 months he is addicted to that BT now from a month he is eating 20-25 packets per day. Sometimes more dis also. His health is getting down. Whats can be d reason 4 his behaviour. Now its at peak and effected by his. Addiction also. Dat doesn't contains tobacco bt there is something in dat which makes him addicted to this level. Once I have eaten dat head started shaking 4 few sec. N rechecking dis twice, result was d same. Even I also got effected n wanted to eat that again. He is trying to leave bt his efforts fail every time. Since last 4 days he has reduced to 2-3packets n sometimes whole day he did not eat. We can't blame mom's death or eating supari as since childhood he is irritating n runs away from school. Now that had increase to max. He didn't listen to anyone nor he is afraid of anything. Sometimes listen to me bt put one desire or demand. 1. What's d permanent solution of this problem? We are now polite with him and dealing him with love n didn't force 4 anything, bt this alone can't work. 2.Did I need to refer a neuro-physician first. May be he had some hormonal disturbance/disbalance since childhood. 3.Or is this a complete psychological case?

Dear Lybrate user, Whatever you have written about your brother, and whatever I have understood till now is that he might be suffering from temperamental issues, if he would have been more than 16-18 years old, then he could have possibly be diagnosed with Cluster B type Personality Disorder (Borderline. May be. Since he is less than 18 years, he cannot be diagnosed as Personality disorder now. I think, his problematic behaviour has been continuously reinforced by his parents right from his chidhood and thus these problematic behaviours are relentlessly continuing till now. I would recommend you to please visit a psychiatrist at present and he needs a detailed temperamental evaluation at present. He also needs a detailed physical check-up also and also some blood tests. As far as using 'supari' is concerned, I think it needs a detailed evaluation with management with both medicines and psychological management. Please visit a psychiatrist soon. Thanks.

Dear , no self treatment please. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Having twins is a tough job for the mother in any circumstances. While they are a double blessing they can be a twice the workload. You must immediately find support in the form of a nanny or from family members like your mom or your MIL. This will relieve you considerably and your mood will be of a better order. You need breaks for yourself and more importantly, you need to get some of your needs met in various ways. Your husband must support your role as a mother-of-two in one shot and therefore will have greater needs than a mother with only one kid. You must speak to him and make him understand that you need his love and care too to manage your role with the twins. Also, if you find someone to talk about your feelings that will make a big difference to your composure. Please remember that you cannot be a supermom and fulfill all the demands without support.

The information you have given suggests that you have very limited friends, may be there is none with whom you maintain a frequent contact. When you started talking to this person to irritate somebody else you had a motive to continue that act and you have been doing it so regularly and consistently that has become a habit. More over over a period of time the talk would have become very personal nad you would have started sharing many things which would have given you a feeling of comfort. This habituation is making you feel that by not talking on one day you are missing something that you do regularly and this missing feeling is leading to secondary thoughts that there is some special bonding with the person. This status can happen with any regular activity you do. Start contact your other friends regularly or create a new circle of friends with whom you can interact whenever you feel like talking or sharing some details with others. This can help you to overcome your current turmoil. If you find it difficult consult a psychologist.

ou need to have mind control and do meditaion and yoga and also contact me with more details for more help. Take care of yourself Connect with others. Loneliness and isolation set the stage for anxiety. Decrease your vulnerability by reaching out to others. Make it a point to see friends, join a self-help or support group, or share your worries and concerns with a trusted loved one. Practice relaxation techniques. When practiced regularly, relaxation techniques such as mindfulness meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and deep breathing can reduce anxiety symptoms and increase feelings of relaxation and emotional well-being. Exercise regularly. Exercise is a natural stress buster and anxiety reliever. To achieve the maximum benefit, aim for at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise on most days. Get enough sleep. A lack of sleep can exacerbate anxious thoughts and feelings, so try to get seven to nine hours of quality sleep a night. If you struggle with sleep, adopting smart sleep habits can make a big difference. Be smart about caffeine and alcohol. If you struggle with anxiety, you may want to consider reducing your caffeine intake or cutting it out completely. Same with alcohol, which can make anxiety worse. Train your brain to stay calm. Worrying is a mental habit you can learn how to break. Strategies such as creating a worry period, challenging anxious thoughts, and learning to accept uncertainty can significantly reduce anxiety and fear.
