My memory power seems to be low. Can you suggest me some tips for increasing my memory power naturally.
I think I am suffering from some psycho problem. Actually since the time of school I had no frnds and those who I have. Lost them just coz I was studious and simple guy. From there only I suffered from high mental pressure. I felt so alone and keep writing stories on this topic only and always crying in my room for hours and suddenly starting talking myself. After 5 years I was out of that but in College I lost my love and was back into that past but one girl become my friend and we had physical relationship too to let myself get out of that depression. But after 1 year of physical relationship we had. I felt ignored when I read her chats with other people. I am unable to accept that she is only my best friend. I live alone in pg and also not in contact with neither of my brothers and sisters nor any College friend but only her. I am not getting myself what I want only life as I kept on hiding things from all and crying in my room after College time. I want to know why I am unable to take things normal as other people and why keep looking in my past and so emotionally weak. Here also I am unable to define my problem properly.

Stress, emotions and meditation:
Many of us got free advice from others to meditate regularly for destress and good mental health. Very few people say how exactly meditation helps.
Here is scientific answer, why we have to meditate? how it helps in reducing stress and increase in emotional intelligence.
Meditation is a science:
Scientifically meditation helps in reducing stress in 3 important ways
1) Interpretation and perception of stress due to any situation is basically projected from his past memory.
Past memory differs from person to person. This is the reason there is different response from different individuals for same stressful event.
Meditation goes directly to the root of the stress response by releasing the remembered stresses that trigger new stress.
2) With each stressful event, there is release of adrenaline and corticosteroid.
In long term meditators levels of cortisol and adrenaline are found to be lower and their coping mechanisms are stronger.
3) The amygdala, the fight or flight part of the brain which is important for anxiety, fear and stress.
That area got smaller in the group that went through the mindfulness-based meditation.
The change in the amygdala was also correlated to a reduction in stress.
It seems that scientific reasearch from west from 1970 onwards confirmed, what yogis in india and east have been teaching for ages.
How meditation helps in controlling emotions?
Researchers found an increase grey matter in the prefrontal cortex of brain, as well as the posterior cingulate, left hippocampus, temporo parietal junction and part of the brain stem called the pons.
These areas all regulate learning, cognition, memory, empathy and emotional regulation as well as self relevance.
Studies have found that a daily meditation practice can lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, decrease anxiety and depression, and reverse the biological markers of aging.
Conclusion: All stress originates from the perceptions we attach to either events from the past or thoughts of the future.
The immediate moment, this very second by its very nature has no power to generate stress.
The act of meditation is simply just a process whereby one focuses the mind in the here and now the immediate present. It is for this reason that meditation is one of the most powerful things we can do to reduce stress and its negative effects in life.
