Lately, I've got anxious about my study. I learn English everyday but I feel my progress is too slow that I postponed my IELTS test. Besides, I've also got problems from work which are driving me crazy.
There are many moments I forget things. I forget passwords, keys, things to do and even my mom' birthday.It is like I'm experiencing a sharp memory decline. Do you guys have any of this experience? Is it affected by mood or something?
Hi Cheryl, yes it does i have experienced that ..it affects on my memory and i spend much more time in my studying or to learn something by heart ,even i forget names of people if i met them recently but i have noticed that all of these things happen when i am stressed particulary so i have decided to work on my stress and trying to get rid of it that’s why i do yoga exercises or do any kind of sport whenever i am stressed,and i know the stress will not totally disappear but the sport really help.
Of course our state of mind affects our ability to learn. IT has been proven many times that children who are worried, nervous or in a state of insecurity do less well in school than happier kids. And the same goes for adults. If we are nervous, worried, depressed etc we cannot learn. It's hard but we have to try to stay positive in life because mental well being affects our physical health too.
Hope you can relax and start to do better and good luck!
