I am preparing for medical exam. So I want to know that how can I increase my concentration level and sharpen my memory because I really work hard but I just forget everything at the right time. So please help me to come out of this situation.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
You are going to write an important public exam but let it not overwhelm you so much that you don't take time out for socialising, relaxing and exercising. Because a strong body, mind and emotional state can overcome any difficulties in life including planning for the future. If you devote all your time to studies then you are overloading your brain and body and it will certainly forget information to get rid of information overload. 1. Instead you need to study smart and save on your time and relax, have fun so that the brain gets time to rest and doesn't forget. For eg. You can use highlighter to mark out important portions, summarise the most important points and elaborate mentally, make diagrams, charts etc if you are a visual person, use all your senses to study by adding visual, kinesthetic and auditory cues, teach other students and you will brush up your portions, create and use mnemonics for faster recollection. 2. Eat light food with lean proteins, low carbohydrates, sugars and fats. Eat more of whole grains, fish, chicken, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid all junk and processed foods as they are loaded with chemicals and have a direct impact on brain functioning. 3. Take out time to exercise regularly and give your brain the oxygen boost that it needs during preps and exams. Aerobics, gym, cycling, walking, yoga. Anything that'll freshen you up. 4. You could have certain ayurvedic brain tonics which enhance memory and it's general functioning. Please see a doctor for this tip. 5. You must catch on your beauty sleep for the brain to rest adequately after a marathon session of studies. Our brain gets tired and needs to rest after a heavy activity to release all the toxins and repair damages. Dreams are a way to remove unhealthy thoughts which is important at this time. 6. Seek counselling if you re mentally and emotionally disturbed. Stress, anxiety and tensions make the brain forget much more than anything else. You willbe able to unload your stress in an unbiased space and learn tips to handle it effectively as well. These are general tips.

Im feeling lots of tension and thinking about same thing so how to get rid of that.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Im feeling lots of tension and thinking about same thing so how to get rid of that.
Meditation and yoga will help you. TRy the tension relieving methods like To be a safe and predictable person for those around you at work and at home, it is essential that you are able to maintain your composure when you feel like your 'buttons' are being pushed. This strength will help you to achieve your goals in business as well as your goals for your personal relationships. 1. Share negative emotions only in person or on the phone. E-mails, answering machine messages, and notes are too impersonal for the delicate nature of negative words. What feels like a bomb on paper may feel like a feather when delivered in person. 2. Pepper your responses with the phrase, "I understand" This phrase will support your goals when the tension is high and you need to find common ground to form compromises or agreements with the other party. 3. Take notice when you feel threatened by what someone is saying to you. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or to "shut down" the other person's communication. It will take this kind of discipline to become an open, trusting communicator. 4. Practice making requests of others when you are angry. It is often much more useful to make a request than to share your anger. For example, if the babysitter is driving you crazy by leaving dirty dishes in the sink, it is better to make a request of them than to let your anger leak out in other ways such as by becoming more distant. 5. Try repeating the exact words that someone is saying to you when they are in a lot of emotional pain or when you disagree with them completely. This mirroring technique can keep both the speaker and the listener 'can notered' in a difficult conversation, especially when the attitude of the person doing the mirroring is to gain understanding of a different point of view. 6. Take responsibility for your feelings to avoid blaming others. Notice when 'blame shifting' begins to leak into your speech. "I feel angry when you are twenty minutes late and you don't call me" is much better than, "You make me so mad by being late. 7. Learn to listen to the two sides of the conflict that you are in as if you were the mediator or the counsellor. If you can listen and respond in this way you will bring peace and solutions to the conflict more quickly. For example, in response to an employee's raise request, you might say, "On the one hand I understand that you really need the raise, and on the other hand I represent the company, whose funds are very scarce at this time. Is there a way that I can work on your compensation package that does not involve cash? Here, the mediator's point of view can look for the creative compromise that takes into account the limits and the needs of both parties. 8. Take a playful attitude towards developing the skill of emotional self-control in high conflict situations. You could view maintaining self-control in a tense, angry conversation as an athletic feat. You could also view developing this skill as similar to working out at the gym with weights - the more that you use your self-control muscle the bigger it will grow and the easier it will be to remain calm when tension is great. 9. Wait a few days to cool down emotionally when a situation makes you feel wild with intense feelings, such as rage. As time passes, you will be able to be more objective about the issues and to sort out the truth about the situation more clearly. 10. Make a decision to speak with decorum whenever you are angry or frustrated. If you give yourself permission to blow up, people will not feel safe around you. They will feel that you are not predictable and will carry 'shields' when they are near you. The fear and walls of others will not support your goals for success in relationships or at work.

Dear. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I am a patient of DM, IHD, PPM, HTN. taking regular medicines. What will be my ideal diet? My age is 72 years.
I hope every condition is under control. Ideal diet is not according to charts. You eat according to your constitution without comparing with others. No sugar or sweets, no bad fats, only good fats like a spoon of pure ghee/ butter and a katori of assorted nuts. Minimal salts and no packaged food as it contains lots of salt, being a preservative. Lemon juice with honey but cut down on other calories (just 30 cals in a spoon of honey) it helps to burn the fat and sugar. Fruits like guava, orange, apple can be had. Exercise like walking also burns sugar and fats.

I am a smoker how I reduce smoking because I want to leave it but don't do it how I can?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, you would want to leave it and not just reduce it. You have made a wonderful decision and it will affect you positively in the future for sure. But it is not easy because there is a lot of conditioning associated with it and these can be spread over the whole day and night!!! When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. You need to identify with why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all, announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. To help process all of the above and to get support, go for counseling and persevere with it until you are completely over it.

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 is 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.

Hello Doctor, I am writing you this mail on behalf of my mother who is suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Below is her brief history : My mother aged 57 has been a patient of OCD since last 25 years and was under medication of a psychiatrist. She was regularly taking Ocifril tab due to which her illness was in control. However, since last 3 years, she has stopped the medicine as she was feeling quite relaxed and the illness too was under control. But still there were some circumstances wherein we could see some signs of OCD surfacing in between wherein we advised her to start the Ocifril tab again.  Within 10-15 days of resuming the tab again, she experiences some menstrual spotting (Her periods have stopped since last 4 years) which in turn further aggravates the OCD. So she stops the pill consumption fearing spotting. Now, we have reached a stage wherein she is unable to take the Ocifril tab, neither her OCD is under control. Hence, with great hopes, i am awaiting a response from you to help me cure this. Also it would be of great help if you could suggest a medicine that can be consumed along with Ocifril that would prevent spotting. Also, she is currently undergoing treatment for thyroid as well. Please assist us.

Hello, Yes OCD is a chronic relapsing & remitting illness which tends to come back even after periods of prolonged wellness. You need to provide me with her complete medicine history (which other drugs have been tried & in Wat doses) along with list of your mother's OC symptoms so that We can devise a treatment plan for her. Waiting for information. Good Luck

Dear lybrate-user, I can understand your problem. Diseases that commonly cause shaky hands include parkinson's disease, overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), and multiple sclerosis. Shaky hands may occur after ingesting or withdrawing from certain drugs or substances, such as alcohol and caffeine. You are too young for parkinson. You need to check your thyroid. Please consult a physician. Take care.
