I am student, so what type of food you suggest me to me to get good memory power.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. You may consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy. Take care.

My husband drinks a lot and I am not able to control this. His drinking habit is increasing day by day, he also chews masala and smoking is his another New habit. I have tried everything to convince him to quit all this but nothing worthy. He himself doesn't want to stop this, he promises he will quit but he is drunk the same day. Please help me with this. How can I make him not drink without letting him know it.

MBBS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Hi, I know this is distressing. First I wish to inform you that drinking for your husband is NOT a habit. It is an addiction and medical science classifies this as a medical disorder. Do's and don'ts for you: Please don't plead him or make him promise not to drink. It is like pleading a patient of TB to stop coughing. Your entreaties make him feel guilty and the depressed feeling is compensated by drinking again. Masala and smoking are their lame efforts at hiding from you that he is drunk. What then should I do? The best solution so far that I have found is to take help of AlAnon. This is complimentary support group of the world famous AA. AA stands for Alcoholics Anonymous. It is a support group that is spread all over the world. Every city and suburb has a group that quietly gathers on one day. Al Anon is for the spouse of person who has the medical condition of Alcohol dependence. In AlAnon you will get to meet women whose husbands had been alcoholics, but have now quit. These women guide you how you should face this problem and they guide you on how to help your husband quit drinking. The other option, which doesn't work well is to have your husband admitted in hospital under a psychiatrist who will put him under a deaddiction treatment regime. Get help from AA, AlAnon or psychiatrist. That is the way to help your husband and your family. You will require courage and perseverance. My best wishes to you for strength, wisdom and God's luck. Best

I have sleeping disorder. I have problem with my relationship from the marriage and I am getting depressed whenever I think about her. I live alone now and I don't get sleep at nights and you had started spending to work at office in late hours, and when I come home I used spend time with TV or smart phones. Which results in sleeping in the morning hours and I m always late to office now a days. I just want to bring me back as I was before marriage. Can anyone help me in resolving this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Obviously the separation from your wife is not going down well with you. If the problem in that relationship is ‘irretrievable’ (as lawyers tend to term it as such only for legal purposes), which I do not endorse that unless you have explored all possible attempts. If it ever goes into divorce without trying every possible means to seek help, then both of you will regret it later when the matter becomes too far gone, and there is no way of turning the clock back. Sometimes it may just be a problem of egos. If that is the case, I advise you at least to put aside your ego and take the initiative without losing any ground in the negotiation. If you have not been for marriage counseling, you are missing a very important intervention. Apart from that I am certain there are a lot of emotions troubling you about the separation. There may be sadness, fear, and anger and it is recommended that you seek the help of a professional to help you process those feelings. You are currently disrupting your biorhythms, which will not only add to stress unknown to you, but will also make your depression worse. Light from the TV and mobile phones will further stimulate the pineal glands and keep you awake. I suggest that you do the following besides going for therapy for marital counseling: Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible, and you could use a pillow between your knees. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep-inducement i.e. breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques at night will be tremendously useful. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Dear, these symptoms could be due to anxiety and obsession. Anxiety is fear about unknown happening or fear about future. Anxiety about things which we do not know or anxiety about things we are not experienced are common. Please tell me what makes you anxious? past? present? future? career? economic status? health matters? anything else? let me know. Take care.

General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Hmmm, it happens. But not to worry. You need of exposure therapy. You can do daily practical with your self. Go outside, stay in the lock room only for a second. Slowly increase the period of staying in the room you will show that the ratio of your anxiety will decrease day by day. But before doing the therapy you must need to meet psychiatrist & star the treatment abt acrophobia. And inform to psychiatrist abt the therapy when Dr. Tell then only implement. Best luck.

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

What is the best solution for people who smoke, so that the thar in lungs can be cleaned or what ia the precautions should be taken. Plse suggest me so it can useful.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. 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 but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. 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 gums and 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.

I lost my parents when I am 4 from then on I continued to live a life away from others and it so happens that suddenly my friend circle grew but all of a sudden they all got transferred to other place making me alone once again. Which makes me feel nervous. What do I need to do now? Ps give me good decision

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am sorry to hear about the loss of your parents at such an early age. However you did well to generate so many friends and live life in their company. Now the thing that you might have done was somehow substituted these friends for your parents and when they left you were literally left in the lurch. You need to find parent-like figures i. E. They must be elderly family people who will be steady and permanent residents in that location. You can develop what is called a symbiosis, if they are willing. A symbiosis is a dependent relationship for the wellbeing of the dependent person. Some people will be willing and some may not. One f the concerns you must consider is your lack of faith in them, which is to say you may not believe that they will remain true to you and may abandon you at some time. In that case you will inadvertently behave in a manner that you will do things to make them abandon you, without realizing that you are the cause. So if you are aware of this, you will be able to conduct yourself with confidence and promote a good relationship with them for your own good. For various reasons friends will come and go but you need not stop making new ones, regularly: some will become very close to you and may continue the friendship forever, others will be time-servers and will leave and forget you. You should not take the latter too personally and get dejected. This is life, really. Making new friends never stops at all.
