My memory power is too weak so how I can increase my memory power please tell me.

It may not be weak but some distractions may be the reason. You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics 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 or coconut 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. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

Dear lybrate-user, motivational enhancement therapy for 12 weeks is helpful. It is a weekly therapy - can be done by anyone who has specialised in addiction treatment. Many clinical psychologist, social workers, alternate medical specialists, general practitioners, counsellors are trained by nimhans for 1 month in house training or in weekly virtual classrooms. They are given certificates. You can approach anyone with such certification. Checking on breathanalyser gives only the 1-2 hours of alcohol use. Mainly helpful for police persons to find out drunken driving. There are other blood and liver tests (ggt, sgot and sgpt ratio) which give an indication of longer use. They are for legal, diagnostic and research purposes. As a daughter, why do you do that for your dad. You are not going to police him. You are going to help him come out of his addiction. Please play that role. Start with improving his liver function so that he can eat well and digest his food.

Dear , I can understand. You are not only suffering from stress but also anxiety disorder. You need to get treatment from a psychologist. You may post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

Because of some personal reasons I have suffered from 5 years of anxiety when I was a teen (from age 15 to 19) and recovered without any medicines. After the anxiety I lived happily for 7 years but after 7 years I have again suffered from 1.5 years of anxiety because of some reasons and again recovered without any medicines. So it was total of 6.5 years of anxiety I suffered. I am not sure about the severity of the anxiety because I don't know how much is severe in case of anxiety. Now I am fine but I have heard constant anxiety causes hippocampus to shrink and now I am worried about my brain that does It has shrinked. I feel my memory and other functions are normal but I am not 100% sure about it. Because I think little bit of shrinkage will not reflect on my memory that much which can be noticed by myself. Please tell me is it possible that after nearly 6.5 years of anxiety my brain didn't shrinked if yes then why it didn't shrinked. And how much time Anxiety or other mental problems like depression takes to shrink the hippocampus. And is the shrinkage permanent or reversible. And if it reversible how can we reverse it.

It is likely that some damage to the hippocampus may have happened but is not of a large magnitude. Much of this can be reversed with treatment. Treatment can be in the form of medicines as well as therapy. Some medicines are powerful than others in reversing this shrinkage. I appreciate your deep knowledge and understanding of the subject, but the knowledge needs to be converted to actions.

Don't worry. Be happy by concentrating on other concept, Usually break up guys will think about the past. Feeling bad about the absence of past happiest state in future. But think deeply you can find a real happiness, without the past journey. Keep concentration on other parts. If you want to know more get ready for counselling.

If you truly love him, you wouldn't break up with him. You would see how much he can use the relationship as a motivation to get out of the depression. Depression is curable. If is unwilling and not cooperative, then you can take a call. In terms of helping him, there are limitations and a p[articularly concerning dynamic that can hamper and become somewhat gamey is if he puts you in a mother's role and also if he becomes passive expecting you to do all the work. Obviously, that will never work for him. So make all the rules clear about this. He4 needs to get into a good vigorous exercise program for 30 minutes every day which makes the body produce natural antidepressants, but do check with his physician before venturing to attempt this. Talk therapy helps a lot to relieve the depression, but he could also have a good and reliable confidante to do the same, like you. This is the only condition where he is required to literally do the opposite of what he feels like doing. Depression makes him want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make him too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, he will need to fight this disease. He must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. He can watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer himself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose himself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. I hope you can love him until he is through with this condition. Remember if he is not cooperative, you are wasting your time and you can quit. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in his life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If he did these three things lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate his sufferings. If he is still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor and later to a psychiatrist, if the counselor advises you. The pro0cess is tough but not impossible.

Relationships are based on trust. Talk to your husband openly and confess with him if you are at fault. Promise him that it will not repeat in future. In a marriage nothing should be confided. This will lead to misunderstanding. Make effort to show your love to him. Make him feel that your husband is very important in your life. Build confidence.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Regarding the concentration level while listening to others, or watching movies etc are fake. If the movie is interesting your concentration will never be low. Counseling and psychotherapy will help you. Take care.

Instead of assuming, go and meet a doctor and find out. If you are a doctor, I would have taken your definition. There are too many overlapping features in mental illnesses to be sure of a diagnosis even by professionals. So as a lay person, you will be making wild guesses, and gradually you will tend to adapt to some tendencies by mere suggestion and may manifest those traits to actually fool even a trained professional and yourself. Don? t speculate on such a serious condition without informed data.

Lybrate-user, I guess you are already answering your question. Definitely, yoga, exercise, good eating habit and sleeping hygiene, having a support network, family connections are the pillars of an healthy lifestyle. Keep this up and if this is not enough, visit a psychotherapist/psychologist. All the best, mz.
