Basically you should develop interest in yourself to improve and shine in Life. You have to be self luminous, that is genious, no exernal force is necessary for this. However guidance is necessary. Prioritize/ concentrate on important thing -studies/ play/food/ sleep/ sociaizing. Then your mental and Physical helth is maintained and will support you to remember bettter, Nothing else is required, Remeber even a rank student is not sure if he passes or fails the exams. So you be thorough. Spend time with family discuss with your teachers and parents and friends and share your knowlege to improve subjects, Write always points in a log book and read repeatedly everyday everthing say PCBMHE E K etc. Or professional course. Be thorough. Start from day one. If not also dont panic. Concentrate and jot down what your teachers teach so that you will concentrate on every sentence the teacher speaks till the end and it will have many references. You be quick. Dont think Negative.

As I am a degree student I need to study a lot but my memory power is degrading and cannot remember the things I studied previous night in examination hall clearly. As compared to my friends who studies the same amount as I do but they can remember very well. Please help me with this memory problem?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu make notes of your study materials. Keep writing them down .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.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your stress, but do not worry few lifestyle changes and exercises can help you overcome this problem. One of them is: kegel's exercise: find your pelvic floor muscles finding the pc muscle is easy. The next time you re urinating, stop or slow your pee mid-flow. The muscles used to stop urinating is your pc muscle. Dont actually tense legs, abdomen or butt cheek muscles, instead focus on lifting your entire pelvic floor upward. Most importantly, continue to breathe through the contraction of your pelvic floor. If you re able to stop or slow your urine in mid-stream, you have just successfully located and contracted your pelvic floor muscles! if you re having a hard time, its the same set of muscles you use to tighten your anus. Now you re ready to kegel. Contract your pelvic floor muscles when you re ready to do kegel exercises for men, the first thing you need to do is contract your pelvic floor muscles. Hold the kegel contraction hold that contraction for as long as you can. Most men cant hold a kegel at first for no more than a couple of seconds. Some may not be able to hold it at all. Thats ok, thats what penis exercises are for to make you stronger! make a note of how long you can hold the kegel. Release the kegel contraction and repeat release the squeeze and repeat, for ten repetitions. Gradually build up your kegels until you can hold them for 10 seconds each. C.

I have lost my someone last month. So I have prefer to depression. So what can I do doctor.
Hello Lybrate user. Time heals everything. There is no medicine available which you can consume and forget someone immediately. Keep yourself engaged in doing what you love or like. One bad chapter doesn't mean the life is over. Save only those memories which gives twinkle in your eyes and not wrinkles on your face. You meet many temporary people when you are 18-25 years old. There was a time when I was ready to sacrifice everything and thought of suicide as I couldn't take the rejection from a girl I was in love with. But eventually it was all set fine. Today when I look back I don't regret whatever happened in the past. It's life. You can not expect everything to happen as per your convenience. There has to be ups and downs in the lifeline to keep it going. It's just a matter of time. Have patience and believe in best yet to come. All the best!

You have essential fatty deficiency along with several other vitamins as a result your seretonin (neuro transmitter) and other feel good enzyme levels are low as a result your body is not capable of stress management. You must eat walnuts, flex seeds, fishes like salmon, mackerel, sardines etc. Severe deficiency is treated nutritional supplements, especially when the soils are depleted and our diet is unable to provide our body with essential nutrients.

Sleepwalking. Sleepwalking, formally known as somnambulism, is a behavior disorder that originates during deep sleep and results in walking or performing other complex behaviors while asleep. It is much more common in children than adults and is more likely to occur if a person is sleep deprived. Relaxation techniques, mental imagery, and anticipatory awakenings are the preferred treatment options for long-term treatment of people with a sleepwalking disorder. Anticipatory awakenings consist of waking the child or person approximately 15-20 minutes before the usual time of a sleepwalking episode, and then keeping him or her awake through the time during which the episodes usually occur. Relaxation and mental imagery techniques are most effective when done with the help of an experienced behavioral therapist or hypnotist.

She will get angry very soon n her anger will be more than 5 to 6 hours why it is like this.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
May be frustration and depression makes loss of temper tantrums. Keeping your temper I n check can be challenging. Use simple anger management tips — from taking a timeout to— to stay in control. Start by considering these 10 anger management tips. 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening — or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. 6. Stick with'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame — which might only increase tension — use" I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say" I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes, instead of" You never do any housework. 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humour to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse.

You are under some stress to suffer poor memory. But if you want to get super memory or become a genius you can do the following: One way to reduce stress in an emergency is to puff up your cheek with air pressure and hold it for about ten counts. The back pressure it creates presses the back of your throat where the vagus nerve is present. Because of this pressure it will immediately slow down your heart rate and calm you down since the vagus nerve is directly connected to the heart. If the stress comes back then repeat it until it gives up. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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. 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week. I am not aware of any medicines available to improve memory, in spite​ of all the claims.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This could happen due to laziness. Lazyness at the age of 19 is rather related to hormones. You hace to overcome this hormonal compulsion by recreating your life style to a more creative fashion. Make a new habit. Be hard on old habits. I suggest online counselling. Take care.

Hi, Losing a loved one can leave anyone like an emotional wreck. For some intensity of emotions fades with times while memories remain on our mind forever. There is a tranformation in life that we confront unwillingly on loss of a loved one but loss does not necessarily need to be for the worse in the long term. I understand you will never be able to forget but we shall be concerned if the grief continues for amvery long time. To help you I need to know some more information about you. What is your age? Are there any others difficulties you have been facing apart from loss of interest? How is your sleep & appetite? Some people feel its worthless to live? They get ideas of hopelessness. Is it the case with you. Plz come back with answers. ALL THE BEST!

I was addicted in tabacoo and also with alcohol which increase my interest in these addictions day by day, I want realise from this addiction so help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
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 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 Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Dear , video game addictions are latest development. Many people are addicted to such games. Many are addicted to face book or whatsup. The method is to find a more entertaining activity like games (indoor or outdoor) or some more entertaining pass time like going to movie or outing etc. Once you find your passion into these activities, automatically game addiction will wane off. Don't worry. I suggest you to have an online counseling session with me. Take care.
