Memory is related to understanding 1. Always emphasize comprehension (understanding the topic) rather than cramming. 2. Divide task into smaller chunks - make points - ask your self the basic questions - What was there in the topic, Who did what , When, Where, Why and How? If you are able to answer these questions , you will generally remember it for long. 3. Revise the points orally before sleeping. 4. Keep yourself well hydrated- have water before sitting down to study. 5. Stop studying if you feel you can't understand- Take a short break for 10 mins, have a glass of water, stretch and get back to studying

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I had started smoking since last 8 months I use to smoke 3-4 cigarettes daily. Can give some tips which would not affect my health much?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am glad that you want to quit this bad habit. 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.

Hi, lybrate-user She is gaining weight due to hormonal and metabolic imbalance in body. Hormonal imbalance can be treated with right food and supplement. She had fat deposit on tummy or belly this indicates that she may have insulin resistance. The food which helps in balancing insulin resistance will help her in losing weight faster. All sugar based food is dangerous for this type of body. Protein diet will be suitable for her. Sample Diet Plan Breakfast – Cheese omelets with green salad. Lunch – Vegetables with salad. Dinner – Chicken/Paneer tikka with salad. Snack – Nuts with lemon soda. Suggest Supplements Microfruit tablets daily after breakfast Cytofresh tablets daily after breakfast Lipolyzer tummy tablet after lunch and dinner.

If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Sir! I don't feel interest in study. I prepare for civil services examination. I have been facing failure for 5 years consecutively. That's why I have lost my confidence. I don't want to study. Is this symptom of depression?

MD, MBBS
General Physician, Noida
Yes. You have loss of motivation because of repeated failures. You do also have despair. I.e. You have lost hope for success in your subconscious mind. Both lack of motivation & presence of despair have caused loss of interest in studies which further deteriorated your performance on day today basis resulting into a feeling of inability to clear exam even this time eroding your confidence. All these together have resulted into a feeling or state of hopelessness & helplessness which if lasted for longer time results into neurotic or endogenous depression due to permanent changes in receptors of neurotransmitters in brain. Take psychological counseling and psychotherapy for motivation enhancement and removing hopelessness with or without medication.

Without a professional diagnosis it is not correct to say that your wife has depression. First get her to see a psychiatrist and a counsellor to get a diagnosis and any treatment if needed. Mild and moderate depression can be treated a with counselling and lifestyle changes only. 1. Since you mentioned that she feels shy to talk because she doesn't know English, then grooming her English would be a good idea. Maybe someone can come home to teach her or some books will teach her the basics and then as she becomes more confident, she can go to common group classes where conversational English is taught. 2. She seems to be picking faults in others, because she's so aware of her own shortcomings. But to acknowledge and acept them openly is so difficult. Thus finding faults in others to raise your own self esteem is a common strategy that most people use. 3. As her caring husband, you could show her your loving care without any comparison or fault finding. She might be feeling lonely as she's not meeting many people. Arguing and fighting will make situation worse only. Tell her that you care for her and want her to enjoy her life. Ask her what she wants to do about her problem. Living in isolation is a short cut method meant. To relieve anxiety and will not work out in the longer ŕun. 4. Invite people who are considerate of her condition and do not make fun of her. Take her to see English movies with subtitles when she's picked up some language. Slow exposure will help her gain mastery over the language. 5. Praise her when ever she achieves something. Encourage her when ever she makes a mistake. Scolding and punishing has negative effect. 6. Try to see her point of view wrt your parents. Don't try to be the mediator by taking sides. It is best that she talks to them about her problems in an assertive manner and seeks solutions.

Sex Therapy - Best Way to Handle Sexual Problems

Over the last couple of decades, there has been a steady increase in the number of issues pertaining to sex. While there are a variety of reasons attributed to it including more exposure to sex through media forums, the changing lifestyle of people is said to be a bigger reason.

With people connected to their work all through the day and multitasking on the rise, work is never complete.  Even when retiring for the night, there are always things running about what next to do.  In cases where both couples are working, there is no match of timings either. That being the case, sex has taken a backseat, almost the last seat.

In addition, the altered Indian lifestyle also has led to greater exposure to sex leading to increased cases of abuse (family/friends circle), past unpleasant experiences, relationship failures, etc.  All these have changed the equations in relationships.

More and more couples are worried about a number of sexual issues, including:

  • Loss of desire 
  • Anxiety about sex
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Orgasmic disorder
  • Premature or delayed ejaculation
  • Conflicting sexual desires 
  • Past sexual abuse or assault
  • Loneliness
  • Image issues 
  • Promiscuity 

Sex therapy is on the rise, and 90% of the therapy consists of getting the couples to have a frank, open discussion. As much as it is a private topic, the problem can only be solved when an open discussion happens, both with the doctor and with the partner.

Whether it is past abuse or erectile dysfunction, the first step is to acknowledge the problem and discuss about it. If you are not able to confide in your partner or a good friend, it is advisable to seek a therapist.  

It is wise to pick a therapist who comes through referral. Some things to keep in mind are:

  1. Be open - Like any other counseling, sex therapy also involves a frank discussion with complete confidence in the person. The therapist will understand your concerns about anxiety or problem and help you how to communicate your desires and needs with your partner.
  2. It does not end with one discussion - Starting to work with a sex therapist is just the first step. It might take a while (a few months) to completely resolve the issue and identify the solution.
  3. Involve your partner - Though it is advisable to start talking alone with the therapist, after a couple of sessions, the partner may also be called in to see if there is something that needs to be worked upon.

Sex therapy can definitely help to resolve the above noted issues and improve sex life, which is very essential for a healthy body and relationship.

Hi lybrate-user, have guts, gather courage tell your guy to divorce and move on with you why be so scared about it when you both love each other, on the other hand if families reputation is involved and he is too weak to take a stand you are too weak then please let it go, there is no point continuing now. If he seriously feels he is destroying life of his wife he should think about separation otherwise there is no point hanging on to past.

Hello doctor. My father age 54 has a habit of taking tabacco I advised not to take and he did it also. But after 2 weeks he started again taking it when I asked my dad he said its a difficult to leave without tobacco its just hypnotising my dad. Kindly advice me what to do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Do be sympathetic to the man: it is very difficult because there are so many conditions associated to the habit. But the good news is that even if you fail many times, he must try to stop it again. It is through perseverance that success can be achieved especially in this habit. If is too difficult then he can go for counseling to get the necessary support and to help identify the emotions, the stress, and the situations that make him want to smoke. When he decides, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. He needs to identify with why he smokes: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. If the urge is too strong, then he could use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. He may join smokers anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep him 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 he has quit smoking. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction.
