Dear user. I can understand. You are YOU. Whatever your behavior today, whatever your body language today are learned from your past experiences and social interactions. Whatever you have learned can be unlearned or over written. This is a continuous process happening throughout your life. I suggest cognitive behavior therapy for you. Take care.

Please try to be positive forget the past, do yoga or meditation daily morning, try to reduce the medicines you are taking, if possible change your location for some months, try to visit nearby temple every day. Take interest in whatever you like to do like painting, singing etc. You are the only one who can help you.

How to forget someone to whom we are deeply attached? I want to remove all his past memories from my mind.

The more you try to remove him, the more you will be attached. First, get into some physical activity - 50 minutes daily. This will help you gain better mental control as well. Then keep yourself busy with work and hobbies, for the next 30 days. It takes about 30 days for the emotions to heal. So it very very important that you keep yourself busy the next 30 days. A combination of the above mentioned physical ad mental activities will tire you and help you sleep better. Sleep is a natural healer of the mind. After 30 days, confide about this to a friend or a counselor. The moment you confide, all your feelings will disappear. It is better to meet a trained counselor because they can take you through the whole thing in a more professional way It is not possible to erase the memory of a person, but the memory will cease to hurt you. Now, go ahead and start your 30 days now, good luck.

Inability to org my tasks, table or files etc 6. Lack of zest and go factor 7. Lack of alertness / lost / As if overloaded CPU becomes slow 8. While having Fun with friends or talking to senior boss, I can not crack witty jokes. I tend to converse in a very "work centric" manner. I mean I'm only able to think of serious discussions concerning actionable things like profession related issues. 9. Judgemental errors in pressure situations 10. Premature ejaculation Please let me know if hypnosis can help. Also if it has to be a repetitive process (In which case I would also request for a recording)

Hi, I appreciate your honesty in writing complaints and the specificity you shown here. After readingabout your complaints I am having the opinion that you are suffering from attention deficit disorder. This adult ADHD have to be differentiated from anxiety disorder. You will definitely benefit from medications and the last complaint you have written also will be reduced by same medicine. Hypnosis is not a solution for this and may worsen your symptoms.

Forgetting Things - 7 Ways To Keep Your Memory Sharp At Any Age!

Forgetting Things - 7 Ways To Keep Your Memory Sharp At Any Age!

Memory lapses aren’t exclusive to old-age which is why it is necessary to keep your mind sharp across all ages. The cognitive skill, memory, can be affected by various factors such as lack of sleep, hypertension, substance abuse etc. Here are a few tips which will help you keep your mind sharp:

  1. Take Frequent Breaks: If you work for long hours at a stretch without taking a break, you run a risk of putting excessive strain on your brain which slows down its reflexes. Giving the brain a break once a while is a good idea and during a “brain break”, you could engage in mentally stimulating activities such as playing Sudoku or puzzles.

  2. Repeat To Learn Better: If you want to remember a crucial piece of information, it is advisable that you repeat that particular piece of information more than twice for a more comprehensive understanding. This tip would be even more effective if you read out aloud the information which needs to be remembered for uninterrupted concentration and comprehension.

  3. Learn To Play An Instrument: Learn to play a musical instrument and regularly practice it as music stimulates the cells in your brain. Studies have shown a strong connection between relaxing forms of music such as instrumental or Celtic music and the motor areas of the brain which are linked to the learning and cognitive spaces. This happens because music triggers the “feel good” neurotransmitter in your brain.

  4. Dietary Changes: Incorporate more nutritious items to your diet such as fresh fruits and vegetables as they are rich in fibre and vitamins which keep the brain and body healthy. Adding fish oil or fatty fishes such as salmon and trout is a must because they are rich in Omega-3 acids which help your brain retain information for a longer period.

Over-indulging in junk food can cause your brain to slow down while extreme crash-diets can cause lethargy in the cognitive areas of your brain. Hence, you should aim to balance your meals.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
