The break from your academic pursuits will have a bearing when you come back to it after some time. I really like that you want to finish what you had begun some time ago. If you have taken an arts combination, it is really very easy to study. Write down short notes while you are preparing and learn those notes only. Later, you will be able to remember them well and memorize them easily. Also keep short duration study times: usually not exceeding 1.5 hours at a time. Then take a break and come back to it immediately after. Do some group-study with anyone else you know who is also doing the same course. Take some tutorials too. Whenever you feel drowsy, do written work. Study a variety of subjects to make learning interesting. Have someone test your knowledge and see how much you have retained, periodically. Eat well, sleep well and exercise well, everyday. June is a long way off actually, and much work can be done between now and then. All the best and I am glad you are finishing your course.

All your problems are suggestive of a depressive phase. If these problems have been present persistently for more than 2 weeks it is most likely dieresis on. However of you tend to have such complaints in episodes then. It could be some other mood disorder too. Consult a psychiatrist for help in counselling and treatment. If you have any further queries regarding treatments you may consult me online.

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.

7 Steps To Divorce-Proof Your Marriage

Is marriage even fun anymore? That?s what many couples who are getting divorced are trying to figure out. Time after time, we read about or know of couples getting divorced after years of marriage, but why? Once again, another Hollywood couple has recently decided to call it quits. Comedian Chris Rock and wife, Malaak Compton-Rock filed for divorce after nearly 20 years of marriage?20 years! How does this happen? Are Hollywood marriages that hard to maintain? With the onslaught of African American marriages visibly breaking down, we compiled this list of tips from successful couples on how to divorce-proof your marriage.

1. If you have to fight, walk and fight. Many arguments stem more from being cooped up together in tight quarters than from the issue at hand. Plus, getting fresh air is good for you, and it will give you more energy for No. 3. (Hey, everyone knows that makeup No. 3 is the best kind.)
2. Over-Communicate. Some, many men especially, don?t see the value in over-communicating to their spouse. While one spouse may not want to hear or share everything about themselves, the other spouse may want to know. So if one spouse needs to hear it, it?s important to the marriage. Over communication also cuts down on rumors about you and your mate?you?ll already know the truth before anyone else says something. Treat your life like a great Facebook post, SHARE IT!
Check This Out: Marriage Mistakes WOMEN Make (Yes, It?s True)
3. Have sex with each other. Seriously! Sex is proven to lighten the mood, make you feel better in a number of ways, including reducing stress. One piece of advice someone shared is to begin to undress anytime you and your mate start to argue?you will either have sex or die laughing (Ha! It?s worth a try). And if you can?t have sex with each other for some reason, let your spouse know that you are thinking about having sex with him and that you are looking forward to the next time you are both available for sex. Try sending a ?sext?. Just make sure you?re sending it to the right person!
4. Respect ?Me Time?. Sometimes your spouse needs to go to the bathroom for 45 minutes. Look, he?s not going to the bathroom the whole time; he?s trying to get away from you. And that?s OK. Maybe you?re being annoying. We can all be annoying at one time or another. That doesn?t make you a bad person or a bad marriage, it?s just time to one?s own thoughts and feelings.
5. Listen just to listen, don?t listen to respond. Many times, while our mate is talking, we are thinking of our response. That?s not truly listening. Sometimes we must forego what we want to say and listen to what he/she is saying (and not how they are saying it). Trust me, it will get you out of hot water many times.
6. Never apologize if you aren?t sorry. Some spouses want to ?keep the peace? and say they are sorry or apologize to keep their mate happy, but if you?re truly honest with your mate, you will state the truth. It may seem harsh at first, but it will get everything out in the open.

7. Date, date, and date some more. Just because you got married, doesn?t mean you have to stop dating. People say it over and over again; ?do the things you did to get me after you got me.? But we understand it?s sometimes hard to do with jobs, kids, responsibilities, etc. But you have to have unwavering when it comes to dating. Dating allows you to continue to have fun with your mate and learn more outside of marriage. Couples who dated for at least three years before their engagement were 39 percent less likely to get divorced than couples who dated less than a year before getting engaged. So even if you didn?t date long before marriage, make up for DURING the marriage. Keep dating!

Dear lybrate-user, You have 2 disorders - one is seizure and headache, due to tape worm. You have dewormed your self with noworm. You are also on eptoin to control fits occurring again. Depending on the type of worm, you should avoid eating pork or beef in future. I am not sure about tingling and numbness. Please get a MRI brain scan to see whether tape worm cysts have disappeared fully. Another is your OCD, which might be before tapeworm itself. OCD causes depression, negative thoughts, weakness, anger, fell like hurting self, etc. OCD also needs treatment. Please go to a psychiatrist and take independent treatment for OCD along with eptoin 300.

I have stress due to the nature of the work, always worried whether I will be able to complete it in time or not. Etc.

The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor i.e. the time-bound work. It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. 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. 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. 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. You must also talk to your superior that the workload is getting beyond your means and that you need more personnel to support you. Finally, learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate.

It' s probably because of his unstable environment or troubled relationships. He needs to check into a good rehabilitation center in order to be treated holistically. He should also be receiving psychotherapy.

Hello user I can tell you to deal with your bad thoughts but for another problem you have to consult any doctor r psychologist fro this. Controlling thoughts will just end up giving more importance to them. They will come back ten times stronger. Because at the level of the mind, what you resists, persists. Do not try to control thoughts without a tool. Breath is a very powerful tool. Doing Pranayam, Meditation, breathing in a specific rhythm will help in having a say over your mind and thoughts. Mostly unwanted thoughts come to you when your work load is less and idle time is more. The more we sit without any activity, the more thoughts come to us. Drink plenty of water, do yoga, gym, running, meditation, sports, listen to music, get creative, spend time with nature, develop a hobby and you will find bad thoughts will eventually subside. Watch your food habits and bowel moment, Include fresh fruits and vegetables. Spend time out in the sun. Check your Vitamin D and B12 levels. More importantly relax. Get old sleep. Stop excess use of gadgets or watching TV. Spend time out in the nature. Work/Study and do whatever that keeps you busy.

A lot of the physical problems that you have mentioned can occur due to stress. You may need some medication for the stuffy nose - for which you should consult an ENT - because a doctor can prescribe medication only after examining you. For the rest of the issues you should practice pranayama and yoga, do some relaxation exercises and consult a counsellor/ psychologist- who will be in a position to help you reduce your anxiety, build your self confidence, and help you overcome your fears.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to 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. Take care.
