It must be frustrating and demotivating for you to repeatedly" not clear" the exam. Please notice that I said" not clear" instead of failing, because you seem to be associating this failure with your personal failure, which is actually not true. You are much more and beyond the passing and failing in an exam. Humans have unlimited potential out of which we use only 5-7%. Rest is untapped. Clearing your exam is not the only way to achieve your success and happiness. Try to create more situations where you get to learn more and utilise your learning. It is common knowledge that, public exams like banking and ias have few seats available but applicants are in lakhs. Usually such students, create a plan b and plan c, where in they have already thought of another job or course to take up so that their learning and earning doesn't stop. Your knowledge and learning will not go waste. Find out where else it can be applied eg. Ias students learn more about current affairs, general knowledge and govt policies for establishments and organisations. Even if they don't get a govt job, they can apply in private sector or start their own business. Set up a time frame within which you try a set number of times. If you don't get through. Leave it and move on. Life doesn't stop for anyone. People who are flexible and adaptable are successful, people who don't adapt get left out. I'm sure that you would have heard of" survival of the fittest" theory by charles darwin. You must understand what are your strengths and in which fields you would do your best. Think of those moments when you were doing your best and felt the happiest and lively. Many researchers have proved that if you find out what is your" calling" then you will do your best, feel content and satisfied and experience good physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. I suggest that you take out time to understand what you excel at. Maybe not getting through this exam is a boon in disguise.

I have sometimes memorization problem I can not retain things for long duration please suggest me some tips that I can reboost my memory.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you know of any reason why you may be under any stress then meet with a counselor and sort that out. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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 are 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 junk food.

Dear Prasad, Welcome to lybrate. Stammering is "speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or "say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses". Stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is Vocal cord misalignment. Second is Psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ENT Specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ENT specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, You should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

You are being treated for Generalized anxiety disorder and this medication is the lowest dose. You should never discontinue medication without doctor's advice. The symptoms you describe are typical side effects of this medicine. Hello Doctor, my psychiatric doctor prescribed me Fortinerv, Depran -5, klonaz md 0.25 1st and 3rd is for the morning and the 2nd one is for night as I told him to reduce my medication and I want to stop having medication. By giving this prescription am I able to get rid of this medication slowly? I think that before you ask your doctor to reduce your medication, make sure you are complying with all the requirements as prescribed. Now if you are serious to want to reduce the medication, you must also work with a counselor and develop some skills and techniques to help you cope with the daily challenges of this condition. Then, as you improve in behavior and coping skills, the doctor will reduce the medication but in such a manner that it will help tease the brain to produce the same naturally. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. You may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Take care of the following: Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.

Talking to your wife about this is the only solution. No couple is perfect. There will be some qualities in your wife that you like- highlight them more - appreciate whatever you like in what she does. Most of the times problems in relationships arise due to miscommunication, over expectations and lack of trust. Spend more time with your wife and child and try to find out her likes and dislikes. Avoid discussing your problem with family members because that gives a signal to your spouse that you don't trust and love her - and this increases your problems.

Dear Ranjith , at your age we are all generally sensitive and find it difficult to take jokes. But we need to understand a couple of things - we feel bad only either we know that what our friends are saying is right - and we have been trying hard to hide our shortcomings , which our friend has pointed out- in such a case work on your shortcoming and thank your friend to be a true one. But many times our friends are trying to have a good time at our expense, question yourself - Do I real need such friends? Secondly, are they some authority in certifying others? The more you react to such jokes , the more fun they derive from teasing you, so start ignoring or begin to be part of it - once you stop reacting , their enjoyment would be over & then they will stop teasing. If the jokes are to do with your height or weight - raise your height by achieving something extraordinary - so that they look up to you, reduce your weight to look fit and agile.

Although these conditions are lifelong, with intervention some problem areas can be maintained/ improved over time. Reevaluation helps your therapist / mental health professional assess and judge the effectiveness and direction of therapy and take course accordingly. In case some medication has been prescribed, reevaluation helps monitor the dosage.

Dear Lybrate user our evaluation of any situation lead to several thoughts leading to development of feeling n actions. Try identifying the triggers that leads to such thoughts. And then make a journal of these thoughts. Also please make routine of activities which makes you happy and joyful like engaging into hobby class. Make a gratitude journal and focus on 10 daily good things happen to you and pay thanks to god. If things still bother you then consult a Clinical Psychologist. Take care.

Dear , dreams are not properly interpreted or analyzed anywhere. Still researchers are not able to explain why and how dreams take place or what does dream signifies. Many person explains differently. My suggestion is to just ignore dreams. According to the latest scientific journals, dreams are not capable create any event in our life. Your mother could be upset because the same dream is appearing again and again. That could happen if she obsesses with that dream. I suggest you to consult a psychologist with your mother for counseling. I think your mother will do better with one or two counseling sessions. If you want my service in this regard, let me know to have counseling sessions through mobile phone. I am sure it will be useful for your mother. I may charge a nominal fee for the session. Please let me know if you are willing. Take care.

How To Tackle Board Exam Results Blues?

Ph.D - Psychology, M.Phil - Psychology
Psychologist,
How To Tackle Board Exam Results Blues?

Handling the Board exam results can be stressful for many young students – Those who did well but expected far better results, those who did not do well and fear parent/peer rejection, and so on.

It is extremely important at this stage to realize that this is where the journey starts: irrespective of what a student scores, it should always be kept in mind that this is the start of a long journey towards making a Good career. A good result means that a small milestone has been achieved, but an underperformance, on the other hand, means there are ample scopes in the future to improve upon it. What matters is how one takes the results in its strides and moves on with determination and humility.

  1. Do not compare: One prime cause of board exam result blues is comparing of result with peers. While the competition is cut-throat in today’s world, it should always be remembered that the real competition is with one’s own self. What really matters at the end of the day is whether one has improved compared to his past. The board result should be an assessment of how one has performed. 
  2. Self-reminder: Self-reminding the fact that there is a maximum limit to the amount of effort that one can put on a test. Beyond a point, it is difficult to influence the outcome. Getting stressed on the outcome of a test one has already penned down month’s back does not make any sense at all. 
  3. Do not Over-think: Over-thinking about the outcome of the result can create a negative impact on the mind leading to exam result blues and depression. At some point, it is wise to not think about the result anymore. Over-thinking will not help in any ways. No matter what happens, it should always be remembered that eventually, everything is going to be just fine.
  4. Meditation: Keeping calm is, therefore, of paramount importance. Practicing meditation can go a long way in reducing the stress, relaxing the nerve and keeping things simple. It definitely helps to put more hard work and improve.
  5. Positive distraction: It is a good idea to be engaged in various activities like volunteering in social organizations, extending a helping hand to the NGO’s, learning to play a new instrument, swimming, jogging, taking up hobbies, traveling etc. These positive engagements help us feel wanted and loved by those who are not so well-off with the means that we have been blessed with. It will also help to beat the board exam result blues.

For many life gradually becomes o.k. after the results have sunk in. But, there are those few parents and children who just cannot accept the result and come to terms with it. It is they who must seek professional help from a counsellor/psychologist at the earliest. It is extremely important to keep a check if a child has suddenly become quiet, reserved, does not go out or has stopped mixing with friends and family. Such children should not be left alone. Seeking professional help can slowly bring the child out of this depressed state and help parents to have realistic expectations.

Hi Doctor, I'm 23 year old male. I'm really concerned on the below mentioned issues. Please help me. 1. I'm worried about my weight. It's only 50 and I'm very thin. 2.1 year ago I completed my degree of b. Com and now working in mnc in night shift from 1 year. 3. My shift timings is at 3: 30pm to 12: 30am. I reach home by 1: 30 am. 4. I get lots of sweats from my hand and leg palms and I think even this is making me thin. 5. I'm not getting urge /desire to eat food correctly may be because of no sleep on timely basis. 5. I always feel to masturbate and I do it many times a day. I request you to suggest me what routine I have to follow in night shift and what do's and don't? I want to improve my physic and look good by gaining some wait. (does consuming nutrigain powder help and is it safe)? I need to know what I can do so that I feel urge to eat on time to time. I think thr r many questions to answer for you in one time but I really need advise on those. I will be very thank full to you if you can give me your valuable time to look and answer for those questions. Thank you in advance for your advise!

Hi lybrate-user, first of all - you can have nutrigain its safe. Secondly, you should exercise daily in the morning- some kind of workout in gym or aerobics or brisk walk, jogging etc. Thirdly, eat every two hours- every two hours fill your stomach but with something healthy like dry fruits or a plain fruit - banana or apple. I know its tough but try to follow it. Tell me do you feel stressed or some kind of anxiety that can be related to the sweat you experience in hands and legs but do not worry that does not contribute to weight loss but for that you have to keep yourself hydrated and have enough water. You can have some syrup that increases hunger. Ask for it. Make a routine and stick to it. Sleep on time and get up on same time daily unless a routine is made it will be hard for body clock to adjust every time. You are in office for good 12 hours-7 hours you must be sleeping, in remaining hours I wonder how many times you masturbate. Masturbation is a problem unless you are feeling any difficulties. To properly channelize your energy you need to get productive, sweat it out in gym and get your lifestyle sorted. Eat more protein and if you are non veg - fish. Consult for any query. All the best.
