My memeory is very weak, what should I do?

How to improve your memory: 1. Pay attention. You can? t remember something if you never learned it, and you can? t learn something? that is, encode it into your brain? if you don? t pay enough attention to it. It takes about eight seconds of intense focus to process a piece of information into your memory. If you? re easily distracted, pick a quiet place where you won? t be interrupted. 2. Involve as many senses as possible. Try to relate information to colors, textures, smells, and tastes. The physical act of rewriting information can help imprint it onto your brain. Even if you? re a visual learner, read out loud what you want to remember. If you can recite it rhythmically, even better. 3. Relate information to what you already know. Connect new data to information you already remember, whether it? s new material that builds on previous knowledge, or something as simple as an address of someone who lives on a street where you already know someone. 4. For more complex material, focus on understanding basic ideas rather than memorizing isolated details. Practice explaining the ideas to someone else in your own words. 5. Rehearse information you? ve already learned. Review what you? ve learned the same day you learn it, and at intervals thereafter. This? spaced rehearsal? is more effective than cramming, especially for retaining what you? ve learned. 6. Manage stress in your life. Don't let it weigh you down. Counselling helps to learn to effectively deal with stress and become more functional. You can find your strengths and abilities to cope and manage with stressful situations. 7. Exercise helps to oxygenate and send blood to the brain. Don't scrounge on these. 8. Sleep well for 7-8 hours everyday. Poor sleeping habits reduce the brains capacity to focus, memorise and reproduce. 9. Eat food rich in omega 3: eat fish, mackerel, flax seed etc. To help the brain to be young and fresh. 10. Challenge your brain often and do activities out of your comfort zone so that the brain is forced to think, focus, memorise and reproduce. Daily and routine activities can be boring for the brain and not be a challenge at all. So do some puzzles, sudoku, try new roads, read new kind of books and material and keep giving the brain new food to chew on. If you have any questions, please click on private chat.

I want to control a smoking my age is 23 I want to leave a smoke because I working I have a pressure so that only I am smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Deal with the pressure that you have mentioned with a counselor and it will make it easier. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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. 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 chewing gum or 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

I have problem in study. Whatever I study or read I forget half thing nd remember half of the things which I have studied. Suggest me something so that I can remember whatever I have studied.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

I am 23 years old male and I got horrible dreams since last 6 months. What should i do?
You will need to look back 6 months ago and see what might have triggered this response. Then, if you deal with that, you will probably stop these bad dreams. You may meet with a dream analyst and help you decipher the meaning and implication of these dreams to help you use it productively. Apart from that you must make sure that you diet does not include foods that increase the fermentation that cause flatulence. This may also come from a lot of stress, for whatever reason, and a counselor will help you discover that and deal with it. You could also sleep on your left ear and change these dreams to cheerful ones.

You are seeking help and this itself is a step forward. Since you are on medication for a long time, please don't stop the medicines without consulting your doctor. Yes, medicines do have some side effects, but if you don't take these prescribed medicines, the result will be worse. You need psychotherapy. Kindly get in touch with a counsellor who will explore with you, the history of these attacks, what are the triggers now and how to manage it. You said you cannot go anywhere without medicines and" mother" what do you mean by that? are you not confidant to move around without your mother? it appears to me that you are underconfident and are not used to taking responsibilities. Your excess sleep and not eating food indicate stress. Your facial shock also might be the result of overall anxiety and low self esteem. Kindly see a counsellor. Please understand that we all have the ability to acquire" life skills" undergoing therapy and learning certain skills will certainly help you. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, Sometimes post traumatic disorder comes back with any small trauma. It depends on your temperament, personality and your coping skills. It is good that you are continuing to use scooter. As time goes by, you will get used to it. You can increase your coping skills in order to face any accidents in a better way. For example accident insurance policy, mediclaim policy, ICE numbers on mobile, bkood group card, etc. If it interferes with your day today life and if you avoid using scooter, please consult a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist, who will prescribe an anxiolytic or antidepressant tablet, do exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy or a type of relaxation therapy with eye movements. Please continue riding.

Dear lybrate user, it appears that, you have had many sad, painful experiences in your life. It is possible that people around you are not able to understand your feelings and many times your expectations are not met. This is the reason why you like to be alone. It will be helpful if you share your worries with someone you trust and relieve yourself of this pain. You may consult a counsellor. Take care.

Urine urgency and severe constipation. Taking medication for depression paroxetine.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Urine urgency and severe constipation. Taking medication for depression paroxetine.
Dear Naseem, Mild constipation may occur with paroxetine because, usually it decreases appetite and you tend to eat less. My patients have not reported severe constipation so far due to paroxetine. Mld one can be treated with more liquid intake, more fiber in diet or isabgol. Urine urgency may not be due to paroxetine. i feel it is due to anxiety associated with depression. Severe constipation also may be due to depression itself. Please consult your doctor again and she/he may increase the dose of paroxetine or add another antidepressant or anxiolytic. All the best.

Hi, you just need to keep yourself busy away from porn and such triggers. Exercise daily for 30 minutes. Use laptop in public. Masturbating will not cause any harm until you are obsessed with it and no you are not suffering from any disease.

Hi, I have a question, I think a friend of mine is going through depression. The cause for the same is she takes all the things negative on herself. This she is doing for years but never reflected but now this since she is thinking that nothing is happening as she wants, this negative behavior is reflected in her talks. I think this is a kind of depression only. Kindly let me know if this is a depression or only a behavior which will get resolved when the things get in her favor.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Right now there are no signs of depression but over time she can develop it. To me she is sounding pessimistic and it may be because of the reason you mention. She should ideally examine herself and see why she is experiencing so many failures in life. How much is she the cause? Very often we precipitate negative happenings towards us by certain factors in our self. If she is suffering from a rejection issue from some events in childhood, she could be living and sending out signals to attract the same. Kindly get in touch with me for some literature on this that could help her get out of the failure mode and shift to the success mode. With so many failures I myself will be affected. But if she can prevent the failures by certain adaptations, she could turn the events in her life to great levels of achievement.

1. Practice mindfulness a depressed mind tends to mull over all that is wrong and worries unnecessarily about all the negative possibilities that may emerge in the future. This negative thought cycle reinforces misery and is not helpful in managing to overcome depression. Mindfulness involves focusing on the present moment and is a skill that needs to be practiced. More often than not, our brains are full of thoughts and focusing on the present moment seems unnatural for our minds. Practice on engaging your senses in the moment. Focus on touch, taste, sight, sound and smell. Engaging the senses leaves less time for worry. 2. Listen to upbeat music I have always thought of music as food for the soul. An upbeat tune can change an atmosphere instantly and create a more positive vibe. Listening to upbeat, happy music alters brain chemistry and can improve your mood. 3. Use touch science shows that touch therapies can help some people overcome depression, lower the stress hormone cortisol and increase the feel-good hormone oxytocin. Therapies to consider include acupuncture, acupressure, massage, reiki and reflexology. 4. Include omega 3 fatty acids in your diet research has shown that depressed people often lack a fatty acid known as epa. Participants in a 2002 study featured in the archives of general psychiatry took just a gram of fish oil each day and noticed a 50-percent decrease in symptoms such as anxiety, sleep disorders, unexplained feelings of sadness, suicidal thoughts, and decreased sex drive. Omega-3 fatty acids can also lower cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health. Get omega-3s through walnuts, flaxseed and oily fish like salmon or tuna.

Stress and diabetes don't mix. Excess stress can elevate blood sugar levels. But you can find relief by sitting quietly for 15 minutes, meditating or practicing yoga.

I can not concentrate on my study due to destruction of weird sex thinking.Is this a bad symptom of anything?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Absolutely not. Obsession about sex has been an old haunt of mankind. However, when it cripples you in anyway, then it is of concern. If it is occasional, like I imagine in your case, it may go away in the same manner it came. But if you indulged in it, it will continue and will plague you to distraction. So what to do? Just don?t indulge in it. When it comes, look at it, like it, and then let it go. Channelize your energy into some active contact games, regularly. Also meet up and socialize with heterogeneous groups and learn what it takes to relate to both sexes, comfortably. Learn that meeting with girls does not have to be only sexually oriented. There are so many things that happen between boys and girls and so much to learn about the opposite gender to help you to relate to them in a refined manner. Sex is sacred and you need to have respect for the opposite gender. Over time, you will develop a healthy attitude and good self-control around your sexual impulses and will turn out to be a thorough gentleman. I suggest you also get some sex education from a reliable source and know its nuances and impulse generation capacity. You will also learn how to deal with the sexual drive, whenever it comes on.

All above problems are mainly due to inadequate and irregular sleep. Such also observed in old age and in diabetic patients. You have not mentioned your age and complete history. In my view start simple yogasana for 20 minutes daily, do meditation at least for 10 minutes. Take simple diet with milk, dry fruits and seasonal fruits. Do scalp massage regularly with almond oil twice in a day. This will work effectively. Taking chemical medicine in long term is dangerous. Ayurveda herbal remedial measures are safe and effective.

Yes this is anxiety disorder + claustrophobia. Consult psychiatrist soon. You will get relief in 4-6 weeks and do complete the full course of medicine to avoid relapse. You may need counseling also for irrational fear and anxiety management.
