poor memory is due to lack of concentration.some people easily grasp what teacher has told and some wont this is due to not keeping their full pledge interest on what they r say.mediation which increases the concentration level.some students in class they wont listen lectures their mind will be roaming some where else.may be in the begining they may pay attention but after few minutes they lose the attention.meditation can increses these attention and concentration.

meditation is nothing but paying attention on breath

Apart from meditation give him some good health drink and protien rich food. He will improve. Sit with him for sometime when he studies to see that he is studying well and not getting distracted.

Hello! Doctor, I ve been undergoing Psychiatric treatment since 2007 for the diagnosed Acute Depreciation & Anxiety. I m being treated with Ventab DXT 25, Macorate CR200, Wacalert 50 & Zapiz 1.00 whenever I feel more anxiety or seem not able to control my thoughts. Actually, this started in 1998 from Exam Phobia & was treated for same. Since then I ve been in & out on medication from time to time till 2007 from where there s consistency in medication & follow ups. Sutre, the treatment has helped me to stabilize over the period. I ve got married, have a small daughter, completed post graduation, MBA & also did certification in SAP FI. The doctor has been of great help to me. He was of opinion that I ve lesser coping capacity. And, that s not entirely wrong. His major concern has been my changing the job & settling in it. He s slowly started reducing power of drugs with powers mentioned above. But, it seems I ve developed dependency on these medicines. And, I want to stand on my own with my thought controlling me rather than medicines. In this blog, I read in answer to one patient, reference to Meditation, Self Motivation. Meditation or Yoga is okay for me since I ve learned it scientifically. I want to know about self motivation. Is there any specific resource available? How can I access it? Will I ever be able to overcome these feelings? or they ve become a part of my personality? I wish to live a life free of medication & complete self reliance. Able to communicate with myself, Be social, & grow in my career as well as financially. Cause, then only I ll not just be able to prove to myself but others as well. Humbly request you to reply as early as possible.

Can I increase overall awareness like reacting to everything, I mean not like Spider-Man and stuff, but I was reading a book about batman how he works trains and stuff, but it said he received heavily mental training and was good enough to catch an arrow at mid flight and stuff. So is this possible? And I heard meditation works, but not the westernized meditation like we see in America.

I ve had Fibromyalgia for about 25 years now and am doing so bad it s scary. I ve changed my diet over the years and eat really well, vegetarian, no nightshades, all organics, well balanced. I meditate and do Yoga and started pool therapy but I become a wreck, even when I take it easy. My mind is going. Memory loss and confusion and balance is awful. About 4 years ago I had a fall and got Complex Regional Pain Syndrome to go with it. My chronic sinusitis has become unbearable with roaring in my ears and insane sinusitis. At 58, I m getting scared my mind days are numbered. Sincerely, R. Jane Gagner
