I think you are getting very anxious just before the exam that is the reason you are forgetting. You can see a counsellor who can help you with relaxation techniques so that you dont get tensed before the exam.

Dear lybrate-user, phobia is a specific type of fear. If you have fear and anxiety symptoms, it is called anxiety disorder. I sugest you to provide more details and symptoms about your problems. The more you are able to explain the psychological problems, the more we will be able to help you. Take care.

How I can increase my brain memory because I usually forget things after some time. So sir I request you suggest me solution.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
At your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 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. 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 all junk food.

This is all stress and worries of life. Issues of love life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a relationship/marriage/life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

You need to change your study habits. Choose right time, place for your study. Switch off all dis-tractors such as mobile, tv, music system etc. Practice writing what you have read and make several repetitions. Take sufficient diet and rest. Yoga and deep breathing is always helpful before you study. Always remember, refreshed mind always learn and recall better. Invest your energy in relaxing your mind before you study.

I think that this may be more than depression by the symptoms you describe. Kindly take him to a doctor and a counselor for a combination therapy that is ideal. Due to his age, these disturbances may be related to unresolved issues or trauma during childhood. It is, therefore, advisable for you to accompany him and detail the developmental years for any indicative experiences. He needs to get into a more activity-framed schedule. If his growth hormones have been activated recently, the late sleep and lethargy are explainable. Do not delay and even if he is not willing you must somehow take him to consult a doctor. Your husband must be involved in all this too. If the treatment is begun early, the prognosis can be good. So do not waste much time and begin the therapy soon.

What is the reason and cause for ulcer? Doea stress has any effect? How to cure ulcer and acidity?
Stress is one of the important factors which can lead to recurrent acidity and ulcers in the long run. There are many other causes for ulcers, which can be treated with medicine. However, underlying stress should be identified by a qualified psychiatrist, who can help you identify, explore and evade unwanted stress.

Hi! I am 26 years old and I have been smoking for past 6years. I started with 2-3 cigarettes a day then near to a packet. Now I have reduced it to 2-3 again. Is there any way that I can detoxify my body completely and quit smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, there is a way but not by reduction: ideally you should give it up immediately and completely. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

I am a 51 years male having normal health and physical fitness. I am smoking cigarettes for the past 32 years. Previously I use to smoke a lot but now I smoke round about 8-10 cigarettes a day. In the recent past I find I am coughing a lot and sometimes it aches in the stomach when I cough. I have tried quitting smoking several times but it is very difficult for me to quit smoking completely. What are the remedies? What medicines should I take?

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

You might have saved yourself of a lot of trouble. That you have quit alcohol is fantastic. Now do regular exercise, sleep well, eat well and live happily. There is nothing to worry about unless any medical problems arise, which may or may not be related to your addiction. It is worth consulting an addiction counselor for personality traits that may need attention. You should also attend AA meetings.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. To increase interest in your education, you need to have a concrete attainable goal. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. I suggest online counseling and" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

There are few medications that help to quit smoking but of all those the better one is your will. You have to stick to the rule that you will never smoke. Then only you can stop smoke.

There could be a deeper psychological meaning in your behaviour. You could benefit from talking to a counsellor and finding the root cause of this issue as its really disturbing you. Meanwhile you could try to look at the persons forehead or eyes and to stay focussed there, do look closely at their facial features leaving aside the mouth. Do this every time to meet someone and compliment yourself whenever you are successful in your attempt. When you are not successful, try to understand what was the reason for looking at the mouth and don't worry about it. Most people don't get it right immediately.

My question is how to become stress free? I feel weakness of body after studying. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
My question is how to become stress free? I feel weakness of body after studying. Please help me.
The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance, like your question seeks. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. If you feel weakness after studying it means that there is not only stress but your constitution is not fit enough.
