Quitting smoking is the one major change that can help you. Which you have done. Apart from that continuing the blood thinners and leading a healthy life with a good diet and exercise should give you a near normal life. Ideally stopping the beer would help since it can lead to increased fat deposition. There is a risk of another stroke or a cardiac event occurring considering your past history but that can be reduced with a healthy lifestyle.

Hi 5 simple tricks to sharpen thinking and memory skills using these memory-enhancing techniques can help improve your ability to learn new information and retain it over time. 1. Repeat one of the golden rules of learning and memory is a repeat, repeat, repeat. The brain also responds to novelty, so repeating something in a different way or at a different time will make the most of the novelty effect and allow you to build stronger memories. Examples of using repetition include: taking notes repeating a name after you hear it for the first time repeating or paraphrasing what someone says to you 2. Organize a day planner or smart phone calendar can help you keep track of appointments and activities and can also serve as a journal in which you write anything that you would like to remember. Writing down and organizing information reinforces learning. Try jotting down conversations, thoughts, experiences. Review current and previous day's entries at breakfast and dinner. If you use a planner and not a smartphone, keep it in the same spot at home and take it with you whenever you leave. 3. Visualize learning faces and names is a particularly hard task for most people. In addition to repeating a person's name, you can also associate the name with an image. Visualization strengthens the association you are making between the face and the name. For example: link the name sandy with the image of a beach, and imagine sandy on the beach. 4. Cue when you are having difficulty recalling a particular word or fact, you can cue yourself by giving related details or'talking around' the word, name, or fact. Other practical ways to cue include: using alarms or a kitchen timer to remind you of tasks or appointments. Placing an object associated with the task you must do in a prominent place at home. For example, if you want to order tickets to a play, leave a newspaper ad for the play near your telephone or computer. 5. Group when you're trying to remember a long list of items, it can help to group the items in sets of three to five, just as you would remember a phone number. This strategy capitalizes on organization and building associations and helps to extend the capacity of our short-term memory by chunking information together instead of trying to remember each piece of information independently. For example: if you have a list of 15 things on your grocery list, you can group the items by category, such as dairy, produce, canned goods, and frozen foods. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day.

Dear lybrate-user, hello! first of all please do not opt for medication straight away. Try to release your stress by allowing yourself to'let go' of anything that is making you stress. If there is any kind of negative trigger in your life, just release the control of that trigger, and allow it to go. This will help you release the extra burden that you are carrying. If you believe in god, then close your eyes to imagine god carrying your burdens. Imagine god saying to you, to not be anxious or worried, he has your back covered. Try and surrender all your pain and stress in the hands of god. If you do not believe in god, then just think'yourself' to be your best friend. Write down your stress on the piece of paper and burn it, this should help you a little. Rest I am always there to help you more. Stay blessed. Regards.

Dear, you are suspecting yourself for having mental problems. I can understand. Usually, we have mental health screening tests. Talking to a psychologist or psychiatrist with an intention of finding mental health problems is another option. You may talk to me over telephone and answer some of my questions. I shall analyze them and provide you my assessment. Take care.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

I have Lizard phobia. Even I fear a small baby lizard too. Please help me to overcome from this.
hi, I would suggest you to read the information about house lizard. It is harmless creature but as it looks awful and as it may fall on us so we tend to get scared of it. Try systematic desensitization... slowly expose yourself to lizard..first from a distance and then reduce the distance slowly. when you go near it you will find that the poor lizard is scared of you... :)

I am in relationship. At the beginning, she was spending lot time with me though she was doing job. I also used to respond. But now she does not have feelings as were at beginning. She spends her time chatting and talking with her work and teammates. If I speak to her this thing she gets irritated and angry. I don't know how to make her understand.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think that there is a lot for you to understand than your girl. The message is rather clear: she is going or has already gone off of this relationship, for whatever reasons. Either you talk about that and see what she says or take a sabbatical from the relationship to see if there is any yearning for you in your absence. If there is no effect, she is kind of off you. Talking will help to determine what exactly is going on. In the bargain, it would be useful to introspect and examine whether you are meeting her requirements adequately or is someone else doing a better job. Then you will be able to see and accept the reality and move on or change to suit the situation. I am inclined to favor the former.

Yes, this is psychological problem. As a friend better to take him to psychologist. He can be changed his behavior with the help of psychologist. At least you should inform to his close mates. Guide them better to take to psychologist. They do not know what to do also. As a friend you help as your level best. Do not sad his condition. If possible better to make a very good friendly relations with him. Tell the condition and take him to psychologist. Be friendly with him. Do not hesitate and do not be maintain for away statuts with him. We are all humans. We have so many problems internally or externally better treat in a proper manner. Not hate to him as enemy. Treat him as very good friend. Best of luck. Best wishes.

Dear lybrate user, you have mentioned, that you are reacting to any stimulus, aggressively because you are seeing these objects as a threat to your life. By reacting like this you are trying to protect yourself. It appears to me that either you have learnt this behaviour from your father or mother or any other relative who was with you when you were growing up. So this is like a" learnt" reaction, which is faulty, now, to overcome this, you need to do the following: 1. Every morning or evening, whenever you can spare 20 minutes - sit at a quiet place. Close your eyes, take 10 deep breaths. With closed eyes try to look inside your body. Understand that this body can protect itsel. Now imagine, that there is a soothing white light, which is a source of energy, above your head. With a calm mind, start receiving that soothing light through your head. Concentrate on all your body parts starting with your head, ending with your toes. Imagine that all your body parts are receiving that soothing light. Just continue imagining this for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes take another 10 deep breaths and imagine that all your body parts have become more powerful now. Do this exercise everyday at lease for 3 months. Also understand that you are very young and full of strength. Go to gym at least thrice a week. This will make your body stronger. Once you have stronger body, you will be more confident about yourself. Everyday tell yourself that you are strong enough to protect yourself. After about 3 months, start looking at pictures of small insects, animals etc in the book/magazine, from a distance. Find information about them and learn how to tame, how to protect yourself from them etc. After a week touch these pictures. Then tell yourself that the pictures do not harm you. Later on slowly, try to be familiar with actual real insects or animals (you can take help of your friends or a counsellor). Please understand that you are huge in size if you compare yourself with these insects/animals. You do have more power and you do have more matured brain than theirs' you need to know, that, with the above exercise, you have gained more power. Every morning and at night, before going to bed, tell yourself that you are very strong and you can protect yourself. Tell yourself that you need to be calm all the time, because when you are calm, you can take better decisions. You also may take help from a cousellor, who can find out the reason for your abnormal reactions and help you to get rid of such embarrassing situations.

Dear, tobacco is the most addictive substance known to man. It is also carcinogenic and therefore it needs to be kept away from human consumption. Your problem is tobacco abuse and addiction. The best method to stop tobacco is to have will power and self belief. Tobacco chewing gums, lozenges and patches are available across medical shops to manage your tobacco craving. In any case the first step is to take a strong decision about quitting. You may consult a psychologist for substance abuse counseling. Take care.
