Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. A persons weight could reduce due to anxiety and stress. This mainly happens because of lack of appetite for stressed person. Thyroid problems, anemia etc can also cause weight loss. Take care.

Staying hydrated at all times is essential for a glowing complexion. Do avoid alcoholic or aerated drinks that are full of sugar and replace them with water whenever possible. Get daily dose of vitamin c to protect against the sun and get a bright even skin tone.

Intake of leafy green vegetables dark berries oily fish and nuts is a great way to achieve a balanced skin texture. Muncing on nuts also helps heal skin faster

Breathe deeply Close your eyes keeping a palm over abdomen, inhale deeply through nose, feel as breath is coming from abdomen and reaching head, feel the reverse on exhaling 3. Be present Enjoy every moment, feel the air blowing over your face, feel the tapping of footsteps on walking 4. Reach out, increase your social network, share your feelings with your close friend 5. Tune up to your body Feel that how everyday stress affects your body Follow a healthy lifestyle with good food and drink plenty of water, go for regular exercise

Are You Happily (n)Ever After?

MA - Psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
Are You Happily (n)Ever After?

Marriage or any healthy relationship, is a bonding and not a binding. Finding the right person and living happily ever after is only true in fairy tales. In reality, once you find the right partner, maintaining and nurturing the relationship bond itself takes a lifetime and living happily solely depends on how you cultivate relationship with your partner.

Communication is one of the chief ingredients besides trust, understanding, love, care, companionship and empathy in a happy and successful marriage. And, failure to communicate is one of the foremost reasons for the failure of relationships. Do you say I love you and appreciate your partner or do you just criticize and complain about him/her all day long? Do you consider his/her ideas and feelings or always turn them down? To communicate effectively is to express yourself freely to your partner, convey your likes and dislikes, convey what turns you on and what doesn’t! Unless and until you are vocal about your thoughts and feelings, how do you expect your partner to understand you? You feel frustrated and upset because things don’t happen your way but have you tried to ‘express’ your way to your partner?

Lack of communication in relationships result in frustrations, misunderstandings, unrealistic expectations, guilt and can create personal differences. It is difficult for people who share their lives with each other to coexist for long without having regular and smooth communication for oiling the machinery of the relationship.

Couples who communicate effectively are not always devoid of arguments. Arguments happen because there is a difference of opinion between the partners; which is a very normal thing. Arguments usually end in nasty and bitter manner. However it is upto us to convert that unhealthy argument into a healthy one! Most of us indulge in these arguments to win; not to resolve the matter! What is important is the ‘progress’ in the matter at hand, not the victory.

Remember, not to engage in any serious discussion or disclosure when angry as you tend to lose balance and rational reasoning. The same holds true in a situation where your partner is not “upto it”. Receptivity is of utmost importance. A ‘No’ from a partner does not mean not now, not ever. It simply means I don’t want to do that right now! –feeling free to say no if the request is unappealing at that point in time.

Communication cues that can help improve the quality of argument:

  1. Remember, there is no blaming game! WHAT is Right is more important than WHO is right.
  2. Use I statements instead of You always statements. Example - I feel angry vs. You always humiliate me. When you use I statements, you’re taking the onus on you.
  3. Attack the issue; not each other!
  4. Refrain from the 4 C’s : Caustic (sarcasm), Compare, Condemn and Criticize.
  5. Avoid mind-reading your partner and assuming things; instead express yourself verbally.
  6. Using “I feel” statements are better over “You are…” ones. When you say I feel, you’re taking the onus for your feelings and thoughts and avoiding direct blame on your partner.
  7. Have an open mind. Minds are like parachutes; they work best when open. Be proactive and open to changes, alternatives and work effectively for resolving a conflict.
  8. Stay away from Stereotyping (generalizing - all men are like that…) & ‘Gunnysacking’ (nursing past grievances and bringing them up for review while trying to resolve a present conflict).
  9. No engaging in ‘Summarizing self-syndrome’ where both partners continue to restate his/her stance and issues without actually listening to other and without understanding other’s perspective, feeling frustrated.
  10. Cut back on ‘Catastrophizing’ i.e. dwelling on the worst possible outcomes of a problem or risk that you face, to the point that even remote, unlikely disasters preoccupy your attention. Often, objectivity becomes clouded, and you may gradually begin to feel or act as though these unlikely events are really going to happen.
  11. Get rid of ‘Stereotyping’ (generalizing - all men are like…) and ‘Gunnysacking’ (cropping up issues from the past having no relevance to current problem).
  12. No sending ‘double messages’- statements which have two conflicting meanings. Keep it as simple and assertive as possible.

A mind is like a parachute, it doesn’t work unless it’s open. So have a broad perspective, try to understand your partner’s perspective and try and arrive at a mutually agreeable decision that caters to wellbeing as a whole. Matrimony is the high sea for which no compass has yet been invented. What counts in making a happy marriage is not how much compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility. Marriage was, is and never will be perfect, Yet it is the happiest wrong we are doing on earth!

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. Please do not worry. Motivation needs to be always self. If you try to get motivation from external sources, You may get it for the time being, but naturally it will taper down and vanish within two days. You have to cultivate consistent self motivation. You have to change your attitude so as to have consistent self motivation. Take care.

I am 28 year old women. I feel highly stressed because of my relationship. I have a boy friend who I wish to marry. He is 4 years younger to me. For the last 3.5 years we were working together and everything was going fine between us but now he started working in an MNC at a very low salary. He was always looking for space away from as I am dominating. I always doubt me because whenever we go out I always catch him looking at women and then we fight. Since he started working I doubt he might find some other girl girl and will ditch me for her. I asked him not to join the job he is currently working in as I am afraid to loose him but his family wanted to do this job as his brother in law referred him on this position, his family was afraid that if he will not join then his brother in law would never help him again finding a job for him. Since he started working I haven't spoken to him because I am furious. I am unable to sleep and I don't know what to do. I think I am going to into depression. Please help.

I think that you are the problem in this relationship with regard to how it is going, which is not good by the sound of it. Perhaps you being older makes you want to dominate like a mother: this may eventually lead to smothering and he may seek to move away from you. You may also tend to do this because of your own insecurities, especially the fear of his ditching you. If he looks at other girls, that is not a crime or any indication of his infidelity. You are so dominating that you wanted him to stay on with the job with you because of your fear of losing him! You need to show more maturity and let him choose his jobs and make his decisions unless you know of good reasons that they were bad for him: not because they could bad for you. You cannot force him into this relationship, if he does not want it. So let him be, and if he does not come back to you, then you know he did not love you and you must accept that however difficult it is for you. The reasons could be many but it is not worth studying unless you want to learn something for your future. Part of the problem could be the age difference, where ideally he should have been older than you. If he is meant for you anyway, he will come back. But don’t wait for too long and before you get into another relationship, do some work on your insecurities. I don't understand why you are taking Betaloc. If it is for a heart problem, then it is of great concern that you have that at this age. Your insecurities may be rather stressful.

I want increase my memory power.how to increase it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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, 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. 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 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.

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.

What is the severity of pain? is the pain continous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders.
