Various genetic factors and your surroundings also play a huge role in determining your mood, but the way you perceive things can change your attitude towards them.

How our memory power can be increase? Or which are the reasons that cause the decrease of our memory power? I think before I had a nice memory power before. But now my memory power has been reduced. What is the reason? Please help ME.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu feel memory is reduced because you may be over worked with other thought and the memory may seem reduced when you try to recollect something. Keep mind calm. In young age as you are there is no other reason for reducing memory. I can tell some tips for remembering. 7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 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.

My friend, he has habit of smoking. He had first smoke at the age 15 Till the 22 Year old. Wat should he do to quit smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Ideally you must send a lot of time convincing him to stop the smoking. Of course he will agree sometimes and sometimes he will change his mind. Giving up is difficult but if you highlight the dangers of smoking regularly he may one day decide to quit. Never give up on him. Because of the quantity of cigarettes smoked and the length of abuse, he will find is even more hard. When quitting, he must take one day at a time. If he looks too far ahead he will get discouraged and will give up. If he sits and counts the number of days he has given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. He must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if he fails one day, he must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. His persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But his desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms him about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and he must remind himself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So he must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for him. In fact it is highly toxic too. He will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. He may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep him 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 he has quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. Everyone who can help him should be involved until he succeeds.

General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, Best age to stop smoking is before 40 Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality.

Consult a psychiatrist and discuss your concerns with him. Your psychiatrist may suggest either increasing the dose or changing the medicine or adding another medicine to overcome your depression. He may also discuss with you the option of shock treatment. Many options are available to overcome depression. Do not make any hasty decisions.

Sexual Harassment Case In Office - How Should You Deal With It?

Sexual Harassment Case In Office - How Should You Deal With It?

Every now and then we come across workplace sexual harassment cases in India, and each time a company, industry or even state comes under the spotlight. Unfortunately, sexual harassment in offices has become a concerning trend which can happen to both women as well as men. It can be in the form of unwanted physical conduct, verbal abuse or suggestive language, or suggestive text messages or videos and such.

Instances

Generally, an employee might be threatened with some form of punishment unless sexual favors are granted, embraced, proposed for an affair, sent obscene phone calls or even subjected to sex-stereotyped jokes in cases of sexual harassment. The harassment can take other forms as well.

Some official sexual harassment cases have rocked India since quite a long time. In one, a lady professional had accused her well-known boss of touching her inappropriately at a party, though the accused wasn’t jailed.

In another instance, a very capable executive was accused of sexual harassment by his secretary, and had to resign. There was yet again a case where a female employee was harassed for three years by her superior. In some instances, out of court settlements resolved the issue too.

Two men had once accused a very famous Indian citizen of sexually controlling and harassing them in the name of professionalism, while the honchos of many reputed companies continue to appear in the news for lewd behavior and even rape.

Effects on victims

Irrespective of the fact whether the victim is a man or a woman, sexual harassment in offices can lead to various psychological disorders such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, increased blood pressure, sleep related problems, suicidal tendencies and physical aches or pain. The self confidence and willpower of the victim is often shattered. Hence, it’s crucial to know how to deal with such harassment. 

Tips to help you deal with sexual harassment

  1. Clearly tell the perpetrator that his or her advances are unwelcome. Say 'NO' firmly, but politely, or send a text message or email if you are not comfortable with a direct confrontation. Save the message as proof.

  2. Make notes of where, when and how the harassment happened and who else was present there.

  3. Inform or share the incident with another colleague you trust about the harassment, or friends and family members.

  4. Save all the work you do and all official communications in case the perpetrator decides to question your performance.

  5. Take your HR department or another senior into your confidence and provide proper evidence like text messages, videos or voice recordings as evidence. The HR is actually bound to address the issue.

  6. Don’t expect all your colleagues or teammates to support or believe you. This might happen, especially if the harasser is a superior.

  7. Try your best to avoid the perpetrator, or keep a discreet recording device handy, if you are unable to avoid. At least make one co-worker your witness, if you fear harassment might occur again.

  8. Make a police report if the problem is grave, or consult a lawyer who deals with such cases.

  9. Don’t be shy; it will simply feed the harasser’s ego. Practice assertive responses, if need be. And never ignore any sexual harassment incident.

Your mental health is important

As a sexual harassment victim, it’s natural to have many questions, doubts, and fears. Don’t be afraid to consult a psychologist to process feelings like shame, confusion, rage, guilt or isolation after a traumatic experience. If you ignore these feelings, they might come back to you on a later date and affect your normal life. Finally, believe in yourself and know that you are right. If you are confident, your workplace will become a better place for you.

How I'll be increase my memory power? What have to do me? I want to memorize more knowledge.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on understanding, retention and recollection. To retain anything in your brain, you need understand properly. To understand properly, you need proper concentration, interest and dedication. You must be serious about what you are doing. Vegetables, fish, milk, egg, nuts, cereals etc help brain active. Physical exercise, games, entertainment etc also plays a big part. I suggest online educational counselling. Take care.

I am unmarried female suffering from depression coz my marriage s not getting fixed now I don't want to get married. ...
Usually in India women get married by 24 -28 years. But it is totally an individuals decision and a person should be physically, mentally, financially prepared for marriage and not for the sake of relatives. There are many famous, and not so famous, ordinary people who aren't married and live happily. Marriage is a kind of bond and commitment in which you need to work constantly to keep it alive with its pleasures and pains. So get married only if you wish and not for your relatives taunts and don't regret later. Don't be depressed for this. All the best.

Has medical science conclusively found the cause of clinical depression or paranoia? genetics? stress? why does the brain physiology of people suffering from mental illness differ from those of' normal' people? can it be said with surety that all mental illnesses are self inflicted?

MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
No medical science have not found a single cause. The reason why a person develops depression and other psychiatric illness is multifactorial. Many factors like genes, brain chemical changes, personality and stressful situations all contribute to the psychiatric illness. None of the the mental illness is self inflicted.

Failure is the stepping stone for success, you might be destined for something much bigger. Do not lose heart, keep trying various things, especially ones you love doing. You will succeed. So move on, if the depression is very severe, consult psychiatrist and take anti-depressants for few weeks, you will feel much better.

You need to consult a psychiatrist if your gender identity will pass real life test, and is not pathological. If it does you can get SRS (Sex Reassignment Surgery) from a plastic surgeon along with HRT. All the best, there are many centres in Bombay which does that. All the best.
