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.

Most likely your wife is having migraine headeche which is not ordinary headeche it is acute throbbing pain on one side or both side of the head. Sometimes associated with nauseas, vomiting, irritating and peculiar problem at the back side of head. Some may see flashings of lights allergic to light and sound. May be temporary loss of vision. Take pain killers and one has to change lifestyles. Or alternative medication.

I'm fed up from that when any senior personal blame me for work which I did correct and asking me the reasons why and all you did? And for same I used to give them reason for what cause I did etc so they always blame me that I'm doing arguments and they insulting me purposely in front of all other staff even after doing sincere and hard work. And they just appreciate their experience only but not listening to me and feelings me inferior complex and for every cause they blame me and in this way they ruined my image in front of of management and reporting wrong feedback to management and for same my Institute management not promoting me for higher post since 5 year. And I also worked for 3 years without pay. So for this reason only I'm depressed and not able to sleep properly and if I'm thinking for to change Institute then also I'm not getting becoz of my profession is of lecturer and behind one vacancy there are many candidates and since 5 year I couldn't get this so please help me becoz I'm worried about my livelihood and career.

Hi Lybrate-user thanks for sharing your problem .we cannot change our past start your life with new energy. Take proper sleep of 7-8 hours. Its in our hand to be happy what it requires is slightly change in your approach ,stop thinking that something wrong is happening ,people are saying something ,just ignore all this, we get life not to make others happy first important thing is to make ourself happy. We can not make everyone happy its just impossible so just focus on yourself and completely avoid other's comment. Make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get time to think on all this. And its everyone's right is to be happy we cannot change the thinking of people or situation around us but we can get the things or reasons which make us happy, what we can do is to live every second of life, what do you want to be, what do you want to eat, to do, your career, your friends, your likings etc. Develop some hobby, make some good friends, make yourself busy, as much you will think you will get frustrate and will gain nothing, live only for yourself, and this can be possible when you will involve yourself in some other things ,the main concept is that make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get free time to think on this. First start from joining any hobby class and make any good friend with whom you can share everything ,do some yoga and meditation, expand your social circle. If you further need my help you can contact me. Take care.

This is rather unfortunate. The least this girl could have done was to inform you before hand and not after four years! You could have also been smart and found out earlier: bu then perhaps you did not have marriage on your mind. Anyway, even if she loves you, she has chosen to favor her family more and that is an unpleasant choice but you will have to accept it. You could perhaps ask her whether your parents could ask for her hand in marriage. If she is reluctant, then there may be more to it and I think you are better off not getting involved any further. You should immediately get rid of all her reminders in the form of gifts, memories, letters, mails, do not frequent all the old haunts you went with her, etc. Generally you must get her out of your system completely. Go out and socialize and enjoy yourself but do not talk ill of her for any reason. You will find a suitable girl because you are still very young, and I hope you are well focused with yoru studies and career. Build that up and you will become very marketable for marital pursuits.

I am 21 year old man. I am not able to sleep at night. I am little in depression. So what should I do?

You must deal with your depression with a counselor and if that person advises you to meet with a doctor, please do so without discontinuing the counseling. For the sleep problems you may try some of the following: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. 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. 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. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety is overwhelming, consult a Psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve.

You have discussed various symptoms, to come to any conclusion one requires detailed information. However, our mood can affect the biological function and vice-versa. To overcome the mood change and sadness you can take an appointment with a psychologist and go for detailed assessment which will give a fair idea about how severe your symptoms are. If needed the medicines will be suggested by the psychiatrist. Medicine & Psychotherapy gives better results. Take a step towards wellness.
