I want to study by reading textbooks. But I cannot focus for more than 1 hour. How to increase my focus as well as memory of wht I learnt.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

I am a chain smoker and my consumption of cigarette is increasing day by day (approx. 10). I want to quit smoking please suggest how to quit smoking.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Cigarette contains more than 4000 chemicals which can cause many physical and mental problems. Nicotine is addictive and causes addiction. Smoking can cause cancer and other physical problems. The best method to quit smoking is to use your will power and sustain it with your will power. There are other methods like deaddiction therapy. Deaddiction therapy can be a success only when you have the will power. I suggest online counseling and deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, You may be suffering from a treatable mental disorder. May be your father is also suffering from the same disorder. One of the symptoms of this disorder is, what psychiatrist call as apathy or lack of emotions. May be you also have an auditory hallucination, someone in head asking you to do wrong things. Please at the earliest consult a psychiatrist and get diagnosed. Treatment may be long, but it is worth to live a better quality of life. But it is better that you don't take your dad's drugs on your own or start alcohol. They may not be proper treatment for your age and the type of work that you do.

Hello sir I don't know why but my issue is that I forget everything even before 2 mins before passed events.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, this may be true because of your age. I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 are 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

How can we maintain a relationship with in a good manner. I face problems to do so.

M.Sc. - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Coimbatore
When comes to relationship, it does not mean that you and the holder of the relationship should share the same thoughts and values. Most people are having the relationship with opposite views and opinions, as like" opposite poles attracts each other" if having same views or opposite, just start understand them. Know their sensitive area. When you are problem with holding relationship it might be something you have tested their sensitive area. Start valuing their emotions, spend some time with them, share your views in an assertive way. Among all those things the main thing that you have to do is to address their emotions and views.

You sound like you must be working too and capable of looking after your family! If I am wrong, kindly excuse. But I agree with you that he should practice all his consciousness and yet be responsible towards his family. Is this an escape, I wonder? I know a lot of people who may find disagreement with what I am saying but spiritual pursuits must be done in a responsible manner, otherwise it is not spiritual. I have always advocated that each one of us must Be Responsible, be Respectful and be Functional, always. The most spiritual person is the one who meets his daily responsibilities and is yet spiritual. Running away to a monastery or the Himalayas is really very easy. It is to live in the world and yet be strongly spiritual is the greatest challenge. I suggest that you as a family visit the authorities at ISKCON and convey your concerns and make an appeal to them to dissuade him for at least three years, and that if he is still keen and was responsible during those three years, he could be considered for admission. If they are genuine they will accede to this request. Of course, your brother must also accept this proposal and comply; but it worth a try.

Dear user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia or dementia are not possible. Your forgetfulness could be due to anxiety or stress. The same anxiety and stress could be the reason for your lack of confidence, nervousness etc. I suggest counseling, CBT and motivation therapy. Take care.

Dear, schizophrenia is a mental disorder often characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to recognize what is real. Common symptoms include false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, auditory hallucinations, reduced social engagement and emotional expression, and lack of motivation. Diagnosis is based on observed behavior and the person's reported experiences. More than cure, you should concentrate on management of your problem. I need to talk to you in detail. Please post a private question to me. I will help you manage it. Take care.

I am a 39 year old woman with a 4 years old son. I am a single mother, working as a Director with one of the automotive groups. Normally I am a very happy and easy going but lately I have started loosing my patience on small little things and anger is always sitting on my head. Whenever things around me are not very positive and any of my work keeps pending for long, I completely lose it and feel heavily depressed. Kindly suggest some remedy for keeping my cool and accept negativity with a cheerful zeal.

First of all, let me congratulate you on all your achievements and for your courage and strength. Single mother with four year old child and director says volumes about the strength and resilience of your personality. Your current problems most likely represent an impending depressive episode. Please make sure your thyroid levels are normal. Also make sure hemoglobin is normal. In any case you will probably need safe antidepressants like escitalopram or sertraline under medical supervision. Few more details that I will need are whether you have any other medical or psychological problems, and whether you have family history of bipolar disorder? Remember, DEPRESSION IS NOT A SIGN OF WEAKNESS, IT IS A SIGN OF HAVING TRIED TO REMAIN STRONG FOR TOO LONG! Take care!
