Sir I have a memory problem since I have watched. Tv since 4 years what will I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
We cannot say what influence you're watching TV in childhood has to do with this memory loss. Your levels of stress could be a problem right now and for that I think you should seek some help from a counselor. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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 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. There is 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. 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 sugar and junk food.

You are under stress because of that everything seems to be negative. You are also suffering from depressive thoughts. Because of stress depressive thoughts come to you. Better to come from stress. To know stress mangement it is very important to you. Take work as a positive note. Every work is seems to be difficult but we have no chance to come out. If is burden then leave it. Choose another job. Get refresh from time to time. Feel always relaxed. Better to maintain a very good friendly relations in office environment. Feel always comfortable. Share your work problems to your companions. Do not feel burden. Feel always it is my duty do it in a proper manner. Do not be alone. After office work spend most of the time as your own recreation time. Spend with friends. Go movies and parks and hotels. In this time you need to spend much money for yourself. Do not think about money. Spend it in a proper manner for you. Ok best of luck. My good wishes always with you. God bless you.

Till now you have been studying these concepts at a very basic level, in class xi and xii you will be requires to study more in depth. If you are able to understand the concepts then what you really need to do next is practise a lot and revise often. That's the key to remembering your course content. Be very regular and test your understanding of a topic before moving on to the next topic. To increas your memory and brain power, you will need to take good care of your diet, exercise and sleep. Avoid all kinds of junk foods, have lots of fresh fruits, salads and drink a lot of water and other natural fluids like lime juice, nariyal pani and other homemade summer preparations. Make small achieveable targets every day and work in a systematic manner. Do not pile up your work, revise everyday. Avoid the use of electronic gadgets - mobiles, tabs, computer games etc. They are time wasters and tire you instead of refreshing you. For taking a break for relaxation either take a nap or exercise, dance or indulge in some music.

Dear, stress and anxiety must have arisen out of the surgery episodes. Should take some time to normalize. Psychotherapy, change in life style, meditation etc helps in calming the mind and thereby reduce stress and anxiety. Post a private question to me. I will help you. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

This can be kind of phobia, a type of anxiety disorder. You need to consult a psychiatrist personally, online if you prefer, with complete details of your problem so that an appropriate treatment and counseling can be started.

I got 3 children. The eldest daughter is suffered with fits during her childhood and become 50% mentally retarded. Other two are above normal in intelligence. Doctors says that she is behind 10 years of actual age. My question is how her condition will be cured?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Well sir usually mental retardation (intellectual disability) is an arrested development of human brain which is more of a permanent condition. Any child with early neonatal seizures with early childhood problem has more risk. But on the positive side usually children in the borderline or mild category can have good improvement with occupational therapy and domain specific training. My advice to you is kindly try to train her as any other kid daily and she should do well. Kindly consult an occupational therapist with expertise in this field for good results. Also be in touch with your psychiatrist for follow up. All the best.

Hello lybrate-user, at your age one should eat lots of seasonal vegetables, seasonal fruits (stick to the permitted fruits list if you're diabetic), sproted lentils and moderate amount of lean protein, like eggs, paneer, tofu, soya bean and lentils. Red meat should not be consumed for more than two times a week and consumption of deep-fried, oily, very spicy and food items with high quantities of grains should be avoided. Add exercise to your daily routine and have plenty of fluids. Ruminating constantly means thinking about negative past events again and again.

My beloved boyfriend died in a tragic accident 5 months ago. We were in a relationship since a very long time. I was extremely sad when he died. But as time passed, I started to get over his death and move on with my life. I stopped thinking about him and remembering him from a long time. But very recently, I've been getting dreams of him and last night I saw his ghost in front of me. I was very very scared. I'm still very scared to go to sleep tonight. I'm also scared to switch my lights off in the dark. I'm telling the truth. I'm not joking at all. I'm serious. Please help me!

Hi lybrate-user! I can understand how much you loved him. Yes it is very difficult to forget such person who was so close and so good to us. It is just 5 months right, definitely you will get such feelings whether real or not. You love him even now right then why getting scared face such situations boldly definitely you will come to know it is not real. After death everything is over. No body no flesh no soul. It depends on the religious belief also. It would be better to get prayer from your Pastor who could definitely help you overcome this problem. Do not hesitate tell your parents take their company see a Pastor who could help you overcome this fear instead of you suffering alone it would be best to tell and get relieved. Because it is just an imagination, if you think real then talk to the ghost why has he come what he needs, it is a known person so why fear. Else if you are scared of get the blessings of Jesus to overcome this problem. No fear. With regards

Hi lybrate-user, There are no major impacts on your health. You may feel anxious or develop cold/flu Less sex may reduce your exposure to germs. Unfortunately, you’ll also skip the immune-boosting benefits of a weekly roll in the hay. Men who have sex infrequently are twice as likely to experience erectile dysfunction as men who do it once a week or more, according to a study published in the American Journal of Medicine, though it may or may not happen. Apart for all this, there can be insecurities in relation. There is more of psychological rather than physical impact. Consult a psychologist for therapy and counseling. All the best.

I am always feeling tense about everything. How to reduce my fearness and how to become strong?
Dear , feeling tensed is always due to lack of self confidence, self esteem and anxiety regarding these two. You need to change your attitude. As the preliminary steps, for first fifteen days, keep yourself engaged in any activities. Play outdoor sports, exercise, keep yourself fit, do some hobbies etc. After 15 days you will see a change in your thinking pattern. I think one or two telephone counseling sessions with me should provide you with insight to your problem and tips to overcome it. Please let me know if you are willing for online counseling session. Take care.

Mr. Lybrate-user, fantasy and imagery is good to keep one sexually active. But it is not the reality! at 44 years of age, some men would want to experiment something different to get over the boredom of daily life. Just remember, most women would want to experiment too. So how about exploring your sexuality and that of your wife too?

I want to increase my memory and concentration. What I have to do ? I really wanna increase my memory. Help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything 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.

Hello lybrate-user, you need to understand what is causing your partner worry. Why is he fighting with you. Once when you understand the reason, try to calm him down by expressing your viewpoint and by showin care and sympathy toward him. Also, encourage him to focus over his work/studies and to do well at that. Avoiding such conversations will not solve your problems, you will have to confront these problems and assure your partner. Good luck.
