Forgetfulness Questions

I am studying in class 11. When I study any subject like physics chemistry or maths I read the notes properly and after 24 hrs I forget what I read. I cannot remember for long time. So what I should do now.

1Keep a daily to-do list. Keep a small notepad where you can write down tasks that need to be done. If you are in the middle of something important and get interrupted, writing down what you need to do later will help you remember. 2.Use a calendar for scheduling activities. If you're busy with school, work, or caring for your family, it can be hard to keep track of all the assignments, meetings, and events going on each day, week, or month. A calendar will help you to avoid forgetting when something is due as well as the exact time and date. 3.Try creating habits. If, for example, you always forget to pack your yoga mat for class after work, you can work on making this part of your daily routine and create a new habit. Making something a habit takes time (longer for some than for others), but it can be done. Try forming habits by using the 3 Rs: Reminder, Routine, Reward. 4.Identify distractions that lead to forgetting. With a busy and stressful lifestyle, there may be things that you or others do that distract you from getting things done. Distractions can be your own avoidance technique, or they can be external forces that inhibit focus and concentration 5.Make time to relax. Avoid filling your day with too many meetings, events, or chores such that you have no "down time." Being busy is not a competition, and your mind shouldn't feel like it's on overdrive on a regular basis. Allow yourself to have time to yourself, so that you aren't overworked and overstressed. 6.Exercise your brain. Keeping your brain active through games or hobbies that stimulate focus and help you mental strength. While exercising the whole body keeps you healthy and reduces stress, try these activities to help you keep your brain healthy 7.Be aware of your family medical history. Does your family have a history of dementia, a thyroid disorder, or a mental health condition? 8.Eat healthy. Your diet affects all aspects of your body including the brain. Boost your body and brain's ability to focus and retain memories through healthy eating habits and avoiding junk food. Make sure to drink plenty of water. Consider these brain healthy foods 9.Get a good night's rest. Getting enough sleep (generally between seven to nine hours a night) will allow your mind and body time to recuperate and relax before another busy day begins. Denying yourself adequate sleep could lead to a lack of focus, forgetfulness, and impaired ability to do daily activities. 10.Exercise. Regular exercise has proven to not only help you stay in shape and keep your heart healthy, but it also helps to get the blood flowing to the brain. Keeping active therefore not only helps the body but also the mind. Consider these ways to keep fit For medication consult online in private.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

What happens to me? (Age: 24) 1) I feel very lazy. 2) No one is very much interested in my conversation. 3) Many times when I talk to someone, I don't get the response as I expected because they don't understand me, they don't get my points, may be because I can't explain them properly. Many times I talk immaturely. Sometimes people ignore me and don't wanna talk with me. 3) IMPORTANT: Racing thoughts. Specially after fighting with someone. 4) If a dog passes by me while walking or anywhere, suddenly my heart beats increases for 3-4 seconds and if it barks at me heart beats increases until the dog stop barking. So I feel very scary with dogs. 5) If someone makes fun of mine, I feel very sad if I feel this joke (FUN) is very insulting. And rewind all these things before sleep time (at night) and its hurts me lot. But I controlled myself and manage it to forget. Also I am not looks very matured and smart, so either not very well interested in me (Specially girls). 6) I am very narrow minded. I can't be very friendly with people. So, I never stand with group of people and talk with them. 7) my some (8-10) hairs becomes white and many people says its because of tension (stress). But I never feel stress because I don't have any sort of stress (God blesses!) I DON'T HAVE ANY BAD habits. Eating habit: 2 chapatis at morning, Rice with any grains or pulses in lunch and 3 chapatis in dinner.

Hi, I have this issue like whenever I think about my old friends whose contacts I have lost or if I am wearing a piece of jewelry and it does not get off I start panicking and feel anxiety. For example if I am not able to remember something I start feeling anxious. I have to divert my mind towards something else n forget to feel relaxed and normal. Is it a serious issue?

Dear mam I can imagine it must be quite distressing for you. Feeling anxious in day to day life over small issues can be a sign of anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder can be effectively treated with medications and psychological therapy focusing on how to cope with anxiety. You can try relaxation techniques like meditation and calm breathing. Please see a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation to understand this better and for further management. Hope this helps Thanks.

Dear Arita, This kind of mood swings are normal. Only if you are constantly happy or sad for 2 weeks, you need treatment. Forgetting things easily is a god's gift, especially for negatives in life. Enjoy it.

My wife used to abuse me in a regular basis and even in front of anyone or in public places. It's not like a quiet conversation rather a bit violent that it create scene for others to enjoy our situation. Perhaps it's a love marriage after 4 years of being togetherness, but now it's unbearable for me. During abuse, it's not mandatory that every time I must have done something wrong but rather most of the time I feel not even 1% guilty to accept such offensive languages or loud voice tone. She abuse me for everything for which she is not happy, not necessarily if it's really connect with me some how or not. She abuse me because of my dark skin complexion and ugly looks (Even we have a love marriage), for my low salary (My CTC is 8.05 Lac INR per annum in Kolkata), for my education (I am bachelor engineering graduate from Heritage, Computer science), for my job (I am working in a private well known MNC since last 8 years), for not having a four wheeler car, for not having a private apartment, for not leaving my mom. Etc. Since our marriage I am only thinking about ending my life some how. Even sometimes she force me to end my life so that she can again marry someone rich and handsome. She pray for me so that I can die in an accident, pray for me so that I can lose my job and become a beggar on street, She used to give slang to my mom and my late father. I can't even save thousand rupees from my salary to savings because she wants to have utmost comfort and shopping and enjoyment. I lost my passion towards programming which could be a major impact on my career, painting, photography and even she get angry if I met with my friends. I feel like a unpaid servant and sex slave to my wife. I feel being raped on bed, because I just can't get that sexual emotions on her and even for that also she shouted in a very nasty way at midnight that I am unable to make her satisfied and she will find new partner. We have a kid (one year), and for that I have been tortured every next night to have sex with her and she never care about my health issue or office stress (Not for a single day). And now, In front of my eyes, she used to slap my little one year daughter heavily that I can't bear her loud cry. She even sometimes throw her when my daughter not ready to eat meals. I doubt my daughter might have been killed someday for such inhuman torture. There is not a single person known to me in my family or her family to whom I haven't been abused. There is not a single famous place in Kolkata where I have not been abused. I just can't hold on these situations for long time. My only medicine is one or two pack of cigarettes everyday and Facebook account to forget my real life. But how long? I am also a human, I need to be loved, need to be taken care, need to be focused. I can't continue with these like I am a software engineer and in modern days I have to be technically updated to at least retain my Job in the race of surviving in IT industry. I wonder If she is unhappy when I am having a job what will happen if I lost it. I can't take a single risk to upgrade my career or switching in different organization. I have decided to do suicide but I just wanted to confirm if I can do something to save my life.

Do you think suicide is the option in this case. I think you should get her treated through a psychiatrist, and if this thing does not work out, why not give her divorce rather than resorting to steps like suicide. I think you are concerned about your kid, but trust me killing yourself is not going to resolve your kids suffering either.
