To be very frank, if you have the will there will be a way. Make up your mind and all other things will fall in place automatically. Stop making excuses and face the reality. Be honest to accept all your weaknesses and commit yourself to work sincerely. Give your best and keep improving on a daily basis. Don't under estimate yourself. Don't degrade your self esteem. Slowly and studily work upon your weak points and then you will pick up speed in no time and excel in what ever you do! have faith in your self!

Hi there ~ The stress of studies is not an uncommon one at all and it is universal. It is only the ability to tolerate stress that matters. If you are feeling stressed and are not able to study due to this there needs to be some stress management strategies that need to be followed for you to be able to study as well as retain it in your memory to be able to recall during examinations.

Please follow the below recommendation for you: Exercise. Regular exercise can be as effective at treating depression as medication. Not only does exercise boost serotonin, endorphins, and other feel-good brain chemicals, it triggers the growth of new brain cells and connections, just like antidepressants do. Best of all, you don’t have to train for a marathon in order to reap the benefits. Even a half-hour daily walk can make a big difference. For maximum results, aim for 30 to 60 minutes of aerobic activity on most days. Nutrition. Eating well is important for both your physical and mental health. Eating small, well-balanced meals throughout the day will help you keep your energy up and minimize mood swings. While you may be drawn to sugary foods for the quick boost they provide, complex carbohydrates are a better choice. They'll get you going without the all-too-soon sugar crash. For further queries get back to me.

Hypertension is defintly a cause of unhealthy heart. Usually the blood pressure is considered as 120/80 plus or minus 20. But it cannot be generalised. This normal value is taken by law of averages. Fact is the blood pressure or so called normal values ranges from persons to person and it cannot be treated by considering this law of averages. Moreover it is modified by different factors such as age, sex, timings, exertion, mental state, etc. You can listen to Dr. B m hegde the renowned cardiologist in who says gandhilji had blood pressure of 220/110 and it was normal for him and he died of gunshot not by stroke. So if the person has any symptoms associated with this pressure he needs treatment. Otherwise no. Moreover as per homoeopathy blood pressure rises not without any cause. And this cause is depending on the sensitivity of a person and this sensitivity and proneness to hypertension has to be treated for a permanent cure. Otherwise he will become a slave of antihypertensives which only suppresses the blood pressure never cures it.

Dear Lybrate User, It appears to me that you are under lot of stress. I also guess that this has something to do with your family and childhood experiences. You appear to be sad and having low self confidence. Probably you did not get love and appreciation from your near and dear ones when you were growing up. Please seek help from a Counsellor. By talking to a Counsellor you will get more self awareness and you will know what is happening to you. The Counsellor will also help you to be more confident about yourself. When you will feel better about yourself, you social interaction would improve. Your mind is empty probably because there is no purpose left in life, for you. Your poor concentration and weight gain also probably is because of stress. During the process of Counselling, you will learn to relive and manage your stress. All the best.

My mom is having a slow memory. She doesn't remember what happened back sometimes and she forgot all the time things. So what to do for this? Any herbal tip.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu have to check if you have any disease by doing a blood CBC and TSH and inform me .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.

I am not able to retain the studies for a long period. Is it due to diet? Please suggest some measures to remove this problem.

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Improving your memory is easier than it sounds. Most of think of our memory as something static and unchanging. You can improve simply by practicing a few tried and true memory building exercises. Physical exercise and engaging in novel brain-stimulating activities such as the crossword puzzle or Sudoku are two proven methods for helping keep your brain healthy. Remember, a healthy body is a healthy brain. Eating right and keeping stress at bay helps not only your mind focus on new information, but also is good for your body too. Getting a good night’s sleep every night is important as well. You need to focus on what you’re doing and the information you’re looking to encode more strongly in your brain. These tips will help you do just that: 1.Focus on it. So many people get caught up in multi-tasking, that we often fail to do the one thing that will almost always improve your memory — paying attention to the task at hand. This is important, because your brain needs time to encode the information properly. If it never makes it into your memory, you won’t be able to recall it later. If you need to memorize something, quit multitasking. 2.Smell, touch, taste, hear and see it. The more senses you involve when you need to encode memory, usually the more strong a memory it becomes. 3.Repeat it. One reason people who want to memorize something repeat it over and over again is because repetition seems to work for most people. 4.Chunk it. Divide the large amount of information into smaller chunks, and then focus on memorizing those chunks as individual pieces. 5.Organize it. Our brains like organization of information. By carefully organizing what it is you have to memorize, you’re helping your brain better encode the information in the first place. 6.Use mnemonic devices. They help us remember more complicated pieces of information through imagery, acronyms, rhyme or song. 7.Learn it the way that works for you. People often get caught up in thinking there’s a “one size fits all” learning style for memorizing new material. That’s simply not the case - different people prefer different methods for taking in new information. Use the style that works for you, even if it’s not the way most people study or try and learn new information. For instance, some people like to write things down when they’re learning something new. Others may benefit more from recording what they’re hearing, and going back to take more detailed notes later on at their own leisure. 8.Connect the dots. When we learn, we often forget to try and make associations until later on. However, research has shown that memory can be stronger when you try and make the associations when you first take in the information. For instance, think about how two things are related, and the memory for both will be enhanced. Connect new information to existing information or experiences in your mind.

General Physician,

YOu can try meditation and yoga . If needed you need antidepressants .5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session

My daughter age 24 has the following symtoms sleeps a lot, eats a lot, foul mood mostly in the evenings, trouble sleeping in the night is she suffering from schizophernia or depression?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Sounds like depression and you need to take her to a doctor immediately. In an interactive and personal contact situation, a lot can be learned to come to a more clear and accurate assessment and diagnosis. It certainly sounds like she needs some medication and therapy and any neglect may only worsen the condition that she may even refuse to come for any help. Why wait for that eventuality? passivity in such situations is literally criminal. Do something soon.

I become very loud and loose control at times due to many issues of the past or surroundings, this is hampering my personal life. I know and realize that control is the best remedy and giving other their space and time is the solution. How can I remove this odd trait of mine.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate user, I am happy to see that you are accepting that you need to change some of your reactions. Most of our behaviour we learn from our parents, grandparents, teachers or other important people in our life. Probably while growing up you have learnt these reactions. So now you need to re-learn how to react in different situations. You have mentioned about certain issues in the past, which are affecting your present life. In my opinion, you need to sort out your past issues and learn to" let go" of certain things. After doing this, you will be able to move forward in life. You have certain suppressed anger, guilt or shame, sadness etc. These suppressed emotions need healthy outlet. Once you are relieved of this pent up emotions you will be able to behave rationally. To do this, please talk to a counsellor who will help you in giving healthy outlet to your emotions and will also help you in learning some assertive techniques. Once you learn this, you will be able to express your emotions in socially acceptable way and people around you will have their own space and your rights also will be protected.
