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

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, 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. 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. 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. 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.

Hi,i get angry quite often which leads to worst action so kindly help me out as this is due to depression.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
It seems that you are not liking some people or situations to which you are reacting. Instead of expressing your anger, learn to be self aware and explain your anger. Soon you will be a much calmer person. A counsellor would be able to help you immensely in becoming self aware and expressing your anger in safer ways. You could also learn to talk assertively.

How Can You Improve Your Memory with the Help of Psychiatry

How Can You Improve Your Memory with the Help of Psychiatry

Psychiatry is not just a form of medicine to identify and treat the psychiatric illness, but it also helps in improving attention, cognition, memory and concentration. Psychiatry has its role in different fields and working in the field of memory improvement is quite interesting. Memory is basically the process through which a person stores information for days, months and years.

Human brain is a dynamic entity and has wonderful capacity to store information and recall it as and when required. However, our memory is affected by a number of reasons, such as aging, accidents, negligence and certain diseases, which involves our brain and nervous system. Further, the memory of an event will improve, based on the frequency at which it has been recalled.

Apart from the frequency of recall, psychiatry can also help a person to improve the capacity of brain and sharpen their memory to store incidents or events for a prolonged period of time.

How along with psychiatric therapy you can improve your memory

  1. Improving your concentration while doing any work will naturally improve your memory. Doing things with concentration will help us in storing information for a longer period of time.
  2. Relieving your mind from stress or anxiety is also a great way to improve your memory as stress has the ability to hamper your memory.
  3. Eating a balanced and nutritious diet is essential for a better memory. For increasing the memory power, psychiatrists insist on a diet which is anti inflammatory, rich in protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.
  4. A simple 20 minute exercise routine will not just help you to stay fit physically, but mentally as well.
  5. It also important to sleep properly, as sleep helps your mind and body to prepare for the next day. It is also advised to have a short nap in the afternoon to improve your brain functioning during the day time.
  6. Smoking and frequent consumption of caffeine also hampers your memory, thus, it is advised that one should quit smoking and reduce the consumption of caffeine. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized psychiatrist and ask a free question.

Dear lybrate-user, Right now there are no treatment, tablet or food, to cure or reverse Alzheimer memory loss. Further deterioration can be prevented by tablets and food. Since Alzheimer is a gradually downhill course, it is worth preserving what is left of brain functions. All healthy foods are good for both physical and brain health. Why don't you join local Alzheimer's disease society? It will give you ideas of various persons trying in vain various things. In order to find a cure, many things are tried. Some optimistic reports will be there. If it is not significant or not replicated in others, it will not be useful clinically.

I always feel like I'm in anger. But sometime there is no any issues. Please help me in this.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. 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. I suggest anger management therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Though your question gives limited and incomplete information about your age etc, I can tell you that you are unnecessarily worried and creating the performance anxiety. This is by and large usual happening in many people because of self assessment of their sexuality and thereby creating low confidence for sexual performance. It happens because individual's awareness in quality sexuality is pretty low and this type of mindset leads to such anxiety and panic. Just relax and be calm, first learn basics in quality sexuality from an expert sexologist either me or anyone nearby, either online or in person. Also please please stop assuming your sexual performance and potential before properly understanding from an expert. I feel you will be fine.

There is no substitute to timely intervention for mental health problems. Every state has government hospital catering to psychiatric illnesses or there is psychiatry opd in most of the government hospitals. So taking your brother to any of these would be good idea.

Why cherophobia is happened to a person? What is its origin? How it can be cured?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Why cherophobia is happened to a person? What is its origin? How it can be cured?
Dear user. Cherophobia is the fear of gaiety, happiness, joyfulness or rejoicing. The origin of the word chero is Greek (meaning to rejoice; gaiety or happiness) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear). Could be affected due to history of extreme traumatic events - sudden death of family/friend, sudden loss of financial support, sexual abuse - rape. Medicines can't cure phobias completely instead they temporary suppress the systems. However treatments are available for phobias, such as counseling, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, and Neuro-Linguistic programming. Take care.

I am an occasional smoker and want to quit the same and want to increase the stamina of body. Please suggest me the lifestyle and daily routine to detoxify my whole body and feel always energetic.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hye. Thanks for the query. Healthy eating for fitness and stamina 1. Base your meals on starchy foods: bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, noodles Choose whole grains, roti, bhakri, unpolished rice and potatoes with skin where possible which have more fibre, vitamins and minerals. Remember carbohydrate rich foods contain fewer than half the calories of fats per gram 2. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables: Choose a variety of fruit and vegetables as they contain different combinations of vitamins and minerals. Soups and fruit juices all count! Try grating vegetables like carrots and cabbage into parathas or add lots of vegetables to khichdis. 3. Eat more healthy fats - aim for at least two portions per week of nuts Include also oily fish like salmon, fresh tuna, sardines, mackerel and trout. 4. Cut down on saturated fat and sugar Although we need some fat in our diet (to provide the essential fatty acids and aid the absorption of the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K), too much fat may lead to weight gain. Replace saturated fats from butter, pastries, cream, pies and cheese with unsaturated fats found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, oily fish. Too much sugar, especially between meals can increase risk of tooth decay and will add extra calories so limit your added sugar intake! If you get a sweet craving try having fruit instead. 5. Eat less salt, adults should eat no more than 6 g per day. A high salt intake is associated with altered lipid profile, high blood pressure. Most of our salt intake comes from processed foods rather than salt added during cooking or at the table, so always check food labels for the salt content. Try using extra herbs, spices, citrus juices (lemon and lime), mustard or vinegar to flavour foods so you can use less salt in your recipes. 6. Get active and be a healthy weight! Ideally, 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes vigorous intensity physical activity and muscle strength training on at least two days per week. Moderate intensity activities include cycling or brisk walking. High or vigorous intensity activities include swimming and running. Muscle strengthening activities include weight lifting, exercises with weights or carrying heavy boxes or groceries. Physical activity can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke and help maintain a healthy weight. 7. Don’t get thirsty Aim for 8-10 glasses of fluid per day. Water is the best choice as it hydrates you without adding any extra calories to your daily intake. Most types of drink count including water, tea, coffee, soft drinks, milk, fruit juice and smoothies, but try to avoid added sugar in your drinks as this can increase risk of dental decay. Alcohol does not count because it makes you pass urine more frequently and contributes to dehydration rather than hydration. 8. Don’t skip breakfast A healthy breakfast can provide fibre, calories, vitamins and minerals important for health. Choose wholegrain cereals, porridge or wholemeal toast, roti, poha, rawa, with fruit for a healthy start to the day. 9. Avoid alcohol and smoking. 10. Get good sleep.

I am I love with a woman who is about to divorcee and has a child. She was ready for a physical relation with me but did not come for it from one month. Therefore I became serious because of her expectations. Now when I told her that I am serious for her and wants to marry her she rejected my proposal. Please suggest me what to do next should I be in touch with her or should I stop talking.

Dear lybrate user. Marital relationship is never based on physical or sexual relationship. If that woman is not interested in marrying you, there will be specific reasons which is apt for her. You must have tried all you can to pacify her. Nothing worked. In that case, I suggest you not to disturb her. I also suggest online counseling for you. Take care.

Most of us are watering the dead plants, knowing that it is sheer waste. We can do nothing about the past, because at the moment it is only a thought, and we can change our thought about the past. We are capable of choosing our thoughts at any moment. Let me give an example. You are entering a dinner hall where a number of delicious and nutritious foods on the dishes waiting for you on a large table. On the other hand, foods you never like, causing allergies to you like diarrhea, vomiting etc. Also there are dishes containing foods giving bad odours that you dislike, on an another table. Which dishes would you choose for your dinner. Undoubtedly the one that suits you. Likewise, we can choose the thoughts with a little effort that make us feel happy and positive views. Don't try to forget the past, it will be a valuable experience to be applied in our present or future to succeed. Keep yourself always busy most of the waking hours with productive activities and spend quality time with parents, friends, colleagues etc. Time is a great healer. Struggling to bring about the dead plants (past) or nourishing the alive ones (present), the choice is yours.

Are there side effects in prolonging the consumption of antidepressants? Do we become dependent on antidepressants?

Are there side effects in prolonging the consumption of antidepressants?
Do we become dependent on antidepressants?
Antidepressant drugs are inherently incapable of being addictive. However, many people misunderstand the continued need to take antidepressants for long periods as addiction. it is like antihypertensive and antidiabetic medicines. But there is scope for stoppage here. Side effects depend upon the exact medicine you are using. In general they are very safe. Side effects are usually due to improper usage.

You both may be having different ideas and fatancies about sexual relationship. It is also possible that your urge is stronger than hers. But to learn more about it talk to a counsellor or a sexologist. Sexual satisfaction is very important for a marriage to sustain. Any dissatisfaction of sexual needs will complicate the relation further. Kindly seek professional help at the earliest.
