Hi, I am 24 years old, I have too much tension without any reason. What should I do? please help me.

Hi, I am 24 years old, I have too much tension without any reason. What should I do? please help me.
It is hardly likely that there is no reason for your tension. If you do not have a conscious reason, then the unconscious mind will have one for sure. If there are reasons buried in your unconscious mind, it is likely that the reasons may have been precipitated from childhood experiences, or a long time ago. The reason you have not been perturbed by it this far is because these may have been suppressed for years, and at an undue moment when stressful factors may have lowered your defenses, it is bound to come up and trouble you. You need to talk to a counselor and that person will help you identify these influences from childhood, and then you could work on them. Any which way, learn about your emotions and learn how to express them appropriately.

How can I increase my memory. I forget things after some time. Please suggest me.

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.

You are distracting from your aim. It shows weakness of your mind and nothing else. Just control your mind and think about your future. Studies is the easiest way to attain success and sometimes even glory. You will realise my words after few years. Just concentrate your mind on your studies and be focused because you will be known by your own name only after you attain heights and studies is a short cut to attain new heights. So always keep this in mind and target your goals, you will never forget.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, I am sorry to hear about your problems. Negative life events such as broken engagements can at times result in a depressive episode. Your symptoms are quite suggestive of depression. The fact that you attempted suicide makes it even more serious. While it's understandable that you are ferlonh quite low at this time, but please remember that whatever you are feeling is a symptom of an illness and can be effectively treated. You will get benefitted by taking a combination of medicines and counseling sessions (therapy) and you must visit a psychiatrist for the same. Also please take help as soon as possible because delay in treatment can worsen the disorder. Good luck. Stay strong, seek help.

If you don't understand concept you tend to forget things. Instead of memorising each and everything try to grasp the concept. Second thing 30 minutes is not much time for laq. This much time is normally needed for long answer. Do not worry you r perfectly fine.

Dear lybrate user. First of don't worry or fear your examination. You were studying for the last 8 months and everything is inside your brain. You learned many things from class room lectures, discussing with friends, taking class exams and term exams etc. All these knowledge is already available in your brain. Now as the exams started, just make sure you review every topic. Get 6 hours of sleep daily for sure. Eat moderately and drink enough fluids. There is no specific diet for exam period, still you can include fruits in your diet. Take care.

I am in very depression because I lost someone very important to me please give me some advice.
Losing someone close is a big loss and your state of mind is understandable. However you need to get over this and move on. This is going to take some time though. However if you feel your depressive thoughts are more than usual and it's getting difficult for you to go through this phase you can vouch a psychiatrist for help and counseling.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

If you need any support have counseling help.

Dear, tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. Effective learning techniques should help you.For further assistance you can concern me privately and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.
