I am 26 year old my memory power is getting low, and nothing remind next days. Please tell me what I should to do?

PGDPC
Psychologist, Pune
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, you say your memory power is getting low, was it higher before? look at yourself and and your life objectively. Accept yourself and develop long term and short term goals for yourself. Your brain records all events happening around you faithfully, all you need to do is to recall objectively. To increase your concentration powers and mental faculties, solve simple puzzles, learn and read new things. Do physical exercises moderately and in your spare time relax and enjoy all that you are going through. Enjoy yourself and all that you do and participate in all activities with focus on the present moment. With regards.

Admit him to a rehabilitation immediately. He should be admitted for at least 6 months and after that, he needs to be on continuous for at least three years in that condition. He will need to attend aa meetings in his town, and the family has to attend al-anon meetings too to work their own issues in relation to the alcoholic and be prepared how to handle his return.

8 reasons why workaholics have dysfunctional relationships

8 reasons why workaholics have dysfunctional relationships

8 reasons why workaholics have dysfunctional relationships

It's good to work hard but is it ok to be a workaholic?

Relationships and career both require a lot of time, focus, and energy to be successful. But sometimes your career gets so demanding that it takes all your energy and effort and your personal life gets totally ignored and unattended

Sometimes your relationships start in a very balanced state. But as you start thriving in your profession, things start getting difficult on the personal front.

There are a lot of reasons why people who are obsessed with their work (especially business owners) because of which they fail to keep up with their personal relationships.

Here are a few of them:

1. They take everything as a project, even their personal lives. They are always on a mission and take everything as an assignment. What they don't realize is that in their personal relationships they are dealing with people, who have emotions and feelings.

2. They are so used to seeing the profit and loss graph that even in their personal life, they sometimes start measuring the returns of their time and emotional investments.

What doesn't strike them is that one can never calculate or quantify their personal life.

3. Being highly accomplished at work requires a lot of discipline and focus. They obviously have to be a master at organizing their day. And sometimes it gets difficult for their partner to catch up with it and adjust to their highly personalized schedule.
 

4. As they climb the ladder of success, their ego starts to accompany it too. Big achievers usually have big egos. They are used to seeing themselves as the top honcho. So it gets difficult for them to pay heed to the needs of the other person.

5. They are addicted to work. They prioritize work over everything else in their lives. They have an intense focus on work and they totally ignore the other spheres of their lives.

6. A lot of times they justify their disregard of the emotional needs of their partner by emphasizing that they are giving their spouse or partner a higher financial and social status (better lifestyle etc.).

7. They feel that the gifts and presents can replace and make up for the quality time they need to spend with their partner.

8. Long stretches of time spent at work leads to a disconnect with their partner. It further leads to lack of communication, leaving her lonely and frustrated.

Don't let your professional success come at the cost of your personal relationships. Though it's hard to do but you need to find a balance between your work and family life.

Don't ignore the needs and feelings of your partner as this will only lead to personal strife and will also adversely affect your productivity at work

Does sleeping less affect the mental power and make it weak or memory loss. It has any other affect also.

Dear Amit. Welcome to lybrate. Sleep is an essential part of human daily life. An average person should sleep at least 7 hours a day. Lack of sleep can cause a varied mental and physical health problems. Lack of sleep also leads to low memory and low concentration. Therefore ensure you are getting 7 hours of sleep daily. Take care.

It is absolutely wrong and not advisable to take any antidepressants without consulting a doctor, preferably a psychiatrist. This is just because it may do more harm than good. Certain antidepressants may precipitate bipolar mania, psychosis, electrolyte disturbances, or even epileptic fits if taken in conditions which are contraindicated. So it would be a humble suggestion to avoid any such feats.

Hi lybrate-user, Regular exercise is a powerful stress reliever—even though it may be the last thing you feel like doing. Aerobic exercise—activity that raises your heart rate and makes you sweat—is a hugely effective way to lift your mood, increase energy, sharpen focus, and relax both the mind and body. For best results, try to get at least 30 minutes of activity that elevates your heart rate and makes you break out into a sweat on most days. If it’s easier to fit into your schedule, break up the activity into two or three shorter segments. Low blood sugar can make you feel anxious and irritable, while eating too much can make you lethargic. Healthy eating can help you get through stressful work days. By eating small but frequent meals, you can help your body maintain an even level of blood sugar, keep your energy up, stay focused, and avoid mood swings. Do not smoke or drink alcohol. Practice deep breathing at night before sleeping. Breathe from abdomen and inhale from nose and exhale from mouth. Do not bring work stress at home. Wear loose clothes at night, have warm milk before sleeping.

Indeed you must be going through a lot of pain now. Your gf has moved on. Yes it's going to hurt for sometime, you don't have to think about forgetting her, you just have to accept that she has left and is no longer an option for you. You must be feeling angry at her for going away but it appears more as sadness in the moment. Begin with removing any object, gift or pic of her etc that reminds you of her from your possession. You can also avoid going to cafes or eateries or parks etc that both of you would have frequent, for sometime. It's important to remind yourself that your exams and career is what will be useful for your future. So collect yourself and prepare for your exams because the loss of time will hurt you more than loss of your gf after few years. Wish you all the best for your exams!

Hi I am unable to remember things in daily life. I usually forgot something which is not good. Can you please hell me for that. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You could be under some stress that you are not aware of. Meet with a counselor and sort that out for better memory. In the meantime do some of the following meticulously: 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. 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.

Well you are not much older than a teenager right now and these feelings are okay for your age. The only problem is that you, cannot or rather should not, act on them. You have to learn to moderate these impulses and the more you worry about them the more difficult it will be for you to control your libido. However you cannot walk around with a high libido and a somewhat lost control. Indulging in it is what can cause bother. You must go out and socialize and meet more people and mix around with both sexes. In time you will be able to understand and respect girls and not see them as mere sex objects. You will also respect your sexual feeling and know that it has to be used responsibly. Right now vigorous games and sports will channelize a lot of this energy and reduce the urge. Your focus must be on your studies but not at the neglect of other aspects of our personality. If you like you could attend sex education classes and get a more refined idea of relationships with the opposite sex and relish a wholesome contact with them. Your view right now seems too telescopically directed towards their bodies due to the hormonal influences. There is so much more to do with your life at this current moment that this will distract you no end: time and opportunity can be permanently lost. You can have great times later on after achieving good development in your all round personality. Stay focused on the right priorities. You may feel like you have no control but that is all in your head and a primed body.

I am raushan kumar. When I am in class concentration is not on topic. For this what can I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Each and every relationship has a little bit of give and take. When each partner say's" I will give a little bit more than the other" and work towards satisfying the need of the other a beautiful relationship is born. We turn towards trust to our creator because he only gives us. Such has to be our giving in out most intimate relationship.

Hello Doctor, I have depression. My main problem is memory loss and lack of concentration. It has affected my job greatly. My doctor gave me a series of medicines. My mood is OK now and feeling better but memory is not improving even after many tries of Medicine. I started taking medicine 3 months back. Now I have lost belief that my memory loss can be cured. Do you know anything about my condition? Can it be cured? Thanks in advance.

Many anti depressants help in recovery of mood quickly, as you said memory might not be improved, unless treated specifically for that. Get another psychiatrist opinion, your prescription might meed revision to improve memory, it is very easy though.
