I am loosing memory. I keep forgetting things. Study I do, last a day only. Next day I find I am blank. Pls suggest which could be effective in regaining my Memory power.

General Physician,
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.

Your mother's death must have been a very devastating experience for you. Mother's love and support is indespensible and losing your mother must have created a void in your life. Like you have mentioned, it is huge trauma for you and your father and truma has almost life long impact on the lives of the survivors. It is important to know how you reacted after her death if you have not cried or not shared/expressed you sad feelings then, it might create problems in future for you. Please allow yourself to feel all the pain and express your feelings. Trauma creates an" emotional wound" which has to be treated like a" physical wound" when someone is physically injured and has a deep wound, the doctor needs to apply medicines, and clean the wound periodically. This experience is very very painful for the patient, but if the patient does not do this, then it can create further complications. Emotional wounds are also like this. People many times prefer not to talk about it, suppress it, deny the pain. But this does not help. Like the physical wound, emotional wound needs dressing - which is understanding and talking about the pain. By expressing (by talking or crying) you will relieve your pain. Kindly do that. You can support your father and seek emotional support from him. You both need some more time to come out of it. If possible talk to a counsellor, who will help you understand death and the process of grief. Cherish the good times and memories you shared with your mother. While keeping her memories close to your heart, try to move on with life. Try to accomplish your mother's dreams for you. All the best and take care.

Dear lybrate user. You are 27. Why do you want to have sex multiple times in one go? that is unhealthy. You can have sex and ejaculation maximum twice daily and that too at least 6 hours apart. On a week, it is safe to have less than 4 sexual intercourses. This way you can improve the pleasure associated with sex. Overdoing makes you tired and therefore the pleasure will be much less. Take care.

Take non vegetarian regularly no problem. Better to keep away cigarettes. Occasional beer will not effect on you. So better to continue your attitudes. Nothing will happen. Eating on time is a good habit. You have a very good habits. Do not worry nothing will happen. You are enjoying your life as per your wish. Continue with out any hesitation. Enjoy hyderabadi biryani. Chicken kebabs happily. Do not think anything. Share your good feelings with your friends and family members. Be friendly and be sociable. Be enjoy every movement of life. Ok best of luck.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please consult a psychologist for more advice. Take care.

It seems most likely to be a Obsessive Compulsive disorder, with secondary depression, wherein recurrent intrusive thoughts come against a person s own will. It is due to altered serotonin transmission in areas of brain (mind) and can be easily treated by any psychiatrist. Consult one. All the best.

At your age some children will experience memory problems because of hormonal imbalances and its accompanying distractions. You may also be under some stress. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. 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, 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.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. 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 junk food.

What kind of pill would be best for a severe stress, anxiety level and also help with depression?
Sir, instead of using any Pill - go for a complete detox of ur body with the help of ayurveda's Panchakarma therapy. It includes Abhyangam (Massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. this wud rejuvenate ur body - improving ur work efficiency and bettering ur sleep. It will also strengthen ur nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of ur body - cleansing ur body. Also take Shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of ur body and u will feel light, fresh and full of energy.

I used to stare men and women in same way if something strange or new thing observed in them. I never apply mind or add any extra intention at staring. I just try to natural as I am. Is it natural or symptom of disorder. However I try to restrict myself to change my natural habit it give me little bit headache.

Make Sure You Will Be Available At All Times For Your Wife

Make Sure You Will Be Available At All Times For Your Wife

From a husband's point of view 'A Happy Wife Means a Happy Life'. To keep most women happy is giving them unconditional love and support. If a husband wants to love his wife unconditionally, he should always be sure that her emotional tank is full. One of the best ways to do that is to affirm her constantly, let her know by words and actions that you value her, respect her and lover her.

For ages a husband's role has been that of a provider and protector. Men earn money to support the family and women would take care of home and children.

In the present scenario, most husband and wife are equally qualified but still women are and will always be mothers too, so they can never be free from the responsibilities of taking care of home and above all taking care of their children. While carry out all these responsibilities, her own goals and dreams take a back seat.

Give her the confidence: When a wife is handling various roles, her husband's support is very important for her to succeed. A husband supporting his wife through all phases also gives a very positive message to their children it indirectly evokes extreme confidence in them throughout their life.

Support her: A husband needs to give his wife confidence that you can do it and I will help you do it. Be it in taking care of children, progressing in career, adjusting with the in-laws and small or big things men should encourage and support their wives achieve happiness.

Treat her as an equal: Husband and wife in marriage are meant to be equal partners. Both need to work as a team in order to have a successful family. Though husbands and wives have different skills and characteristics, each of them contributes to the success of a happy home.

Make her feel special: Helping her in her responsibilities or small actions to make her feel special are enough. These give her the reassurance that you are around.

Be there when times are difficult: The best is when you there to sort out her problems and to make things easier for her. Be there to support her in times of stress. It could be work, family or a personal issue, handle it together.

You are in a bad situation not doubt but there is also a medical contingency and so a lot of things have to be tolerated. But your husband's attachment to his mother's apron strings is something of concern. many times during courtship you can observe these signs however subtle they may have been if you looked carefully. Now it is too late and you are already into your marriage. You will have to learn to live with it because you will spend your whole life trying to change this man and may also encounter a lot of resistance from both him and his mother. so you are then left with the alternative of sharing your husband with your MIL, fortunately not physically. You must inform him though that the first two years of your marriage will determine the next years of your life. By the looks of it, it seems to be going all wrong. You must learn to tolerate or else move into your own home, immediately. The last idea is the best if you can convince him. If you are patient and can out the medical emergency, then it would be a prudent time to initiate all these possibilities. Look at the cost of doing it now or later. If you pushed any agenda now, you could jeopardize the relationship itself. This is not worth taking the risk.

Not at all, but do not exert yourself all of a sudden. Initially, when you start any exercise program after a long gap, you will have aches and pains because those muscles that have remained passive for some time are suddenly being strained and therefore they will feel the pain for some time. But if you persist with a lower intensity until the pain eases up, you will find it better over time. Congratulations on your decision and keep it up under any circumstances.

You may be in the early stages of an anger related depression. You must act now and promptly and with full cooperation. A good vigorous exercise program for 30 minutes every day makes the body produce natural antidepressants, but do check with your physician before venturing to attempt this. Talk therapy helps a lot to relieve the depression, but you could also have a good and reliable confidante to do the same. This is the only condition were you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on tv or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in god to alleviate your sufferings. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor and later to a psychiatrist, if the counselor advises you.
