Tablets are not the solutions for behavior problems. Cognitive behavior therapy is the best option. However there are possibilities that your approaches may be the cause for sustaining the behavior and you may also have to change. Better consult a professionally trained psychologist for appropriate solutions

In my entire life most of the people friends, close associates in the beginning turn out non cordial unhappy leading to broken relationship. Why it so happens? No answer is given to me when I ask them the reason.

I can imagine how sad and frustrating it might be for you to see that most of the relationships are falling apart. It is true especially in present times. There are many reasons. But the most important reasons are lack of effective communication skills, lack of assertive behaviour techniques and rigid values, perceptions and expectations of an individual. We all come from different backgrounds and varied socio-economic status. While growing up we learn behaviours from our parents, teachers, and other close family members. Depending on our upbringing, environment at home, and our own life experiences, we develop our own biases, perceptions and values. And we all start believing that our own values and perceptions are" the" truth. Depending on these values and perceptions we have our own set of expectations from different relations. Hence when we have someone coming from a different background and different upbringing, we experience clash of values, perceptions and expectations. Since, each person believes that she/he has" correct" set of values and perceptions, it becomes difficult for them to understand the other person. Unfortunately, in our entire education system, we are never taught" how to listen to the other person" and" how to communicate our own feelings/needs effectively, without hurting the other person. When more people will be equipped with" effective communication skills" and when more people will learn" assertiveness" relationships will improve. Learning both these skills, help a person to be flexible, it gives each person more awareness about their own values/beliefs/perceptions. It also helps in understanding the other person's views and accepting the fact that the person has a right to have different opinion/set of values and expectations. You did not get the answer to your question from your relatives/friends, probably, because, they themselves are not aware about these important skills, and each person is thinking that he/she is right and the other person is wrong and needs to change. In fact, both individuals need to change their own learned styles of communication and expressions, if it is not helping the relationship. And" unlearning" the" learned" behaviour is possible. At your age, I am sure, you have lots of experience and wisdom to help such people who are suffering from dysfunctional relationships. If you are satisfied with my answer, please persuade more people to learn better communication skills and help them in being assertive. It will be a great help for the society as such. Thank you.

7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

I am facing memory loss problem. What to do?
Memory loss: it may one of commonest reason for consultation in india, with neurologist or a psychiatrist. This may be in part due our memory obsessed culture or rote learning educational method in which we grew up (including myself). Therefpre any percived short coming in memory problems will lead to early consultation. Other reason for poor memory: it may be due to nutritional deficiencies, especially as many in india are vegetarians. Nutritional deficiencies lead to anaemia (low haemoglobin) and vitamin b12 deficiency which can affect memory. Lifestyle is one big contributor especially stress, burnout, alcohol abuse, smoking, poor dietary habits and sleep disorder. Further we need to consider medical causes like hypertension, high cholesterol, heart & thyroid problems, dementia and other neurological conditions, which will depend on age on individual, their family history, lifestyle and fitness. I suggest you see a physicianmornpsychoatrist for evaluation mind and bodily causes of memory problems. They are likely to consider relevant blood test including vit b12 level and possible imaging study like ct brain or mri brain. Any treatment will depend on underlying cause.

Why i am getting tension at the age of 38. I seems its too early.
There is no age limit for tension: you can get it at any time in your life. If your constitution is not primed for tension, and if the pressure is beyond your means, you will experience stress. So you need to build your resistance and coping skills to manage the routine pressures. Apart from that you should not add to the pressures that life throws at you. Your best bet is to keep yourself physically, emotionally and spiritually fit all the time. You need to find out what is causing pressure right now in your life and what coping skills are lacking in you to manage it. Then you can meet with counselor to sort it out.

Hi many adolescents go through the same situation as you are in now. It is the effect of hormones occurring at this age. But this is the exact age to make our career also. In fact this is the time to decide and implement what your goal of life is'girl things' will happen frequently in future also. But time to make your career won't come back. This is not a disease but distraction. You seem to be intelligent boy as you understand the importance of studies and so you are asking how to focus. Your this determination to focus on studies and not to fall pray to distractions will help you. Set your goal. Any time distraction comes remind yourself of it. By disiplining the mind you will be able to concentrate better. When we are walking the stray cats come to us to ask for food if you will give them they will cling on to you. If you will ignore then they won't bother you. Remember to walk your path and ignore'catwalk' you can do it. Take care be happy!

Social phobia is a psychological problem. Medicine will not helpful for this aspect. It is better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling will helpful to come out of this problem. Because of one problem simultaneously other factors also developed. Muttering it is not related to schizophrenia in your aspect. Do not think too much about psychological disorders. Take life style modification and cognitive behaviour modification therapy. It is good to you. It is not caused for any side affects. For social phobia you need to do some work. Do not sit alone and do not think aloneness. Be share your internal feelings and problems to your close friends and family members. Be sociable all the time and be happy. Do not use continuously medicine it is not good for your mental health. It has some side effects. Better to stop the medicine. Change your behaviour you will come from your problems. It is better to consult a good qualified psychologist in lucknow. Be happy all the time. Ok all the best.

Dear friend it is very normal looking at your depression history for you to lack motivation. What needs to be worked on is slow and steady work. On creating a burning desire to have a different life. And in order to create this change you need support and step by step guidance. Someone who understands you and your stage and have knowledge to guide you through change process one step at a time and one day at a time. You need to consult a psychologist. If someone has positive psychology and life coaching back ground that would be great. Feel free to contact me for initial free consultation via my website. Wishing you very best.
