Try to figure out discussing with your pnew partner. be open. follow some the following guidelines: Solutions That Can Save a Relationship. Communication All relationship problems stem from poor communication, You can't communicate while you're checking your BlackBerry, watching TV, or flipping through the sports section" Sex Even partners who love each other can be a mismatch, sexually,lack of sexual self-awareness and education worsens these problems. But having sex is one of the last things you should give up. "Sex" "brings us closer together, releases hormones that help our bodies both physically and mentally, and keeps the chemistry of a healthy couple healthy" Problem-solving strategies: Plan, plan, plan. Money Money problems can start even before the wedding vows are exchanged. They can stem, for example, from the expenses of courtship or from the high cost of a wedding. Problem-solving strategies: Be honest about your current financial situation. If things have gone south, continuing the same lifestyle is unrealistic.Don't approach the subject in the heat of battle. Instead, set aside a time that is convenient and non-threatening for both of you.Acknowledge that one partner may be a saver and one a spender, understand there are benefits to both, and agree to learn from each other's tendencies.Don't hide income or debt. Bring financial documents, including a recent credit report, pay stubs, bank statements,policies, debts, and investments to the table.Don't blame.Construct a joint budget that includes savings.Decide which person will be responsible for paying the monthly bills.Allow each person to have independence by setting aside money to be spent at his or her discretion.Decide upon short-term and long-term goals. It's OK to have individual goals, but you should have family goals, too.Talk about caring for your parents as they age and how to appropriately plan for their financial needs if needed. Struggles Over Home Chores Most partners work outside the home and often at more than one job. So it's important to fairly divide the labor at home. Problem-solving strategies: Be organized and clear about your respective jobs in the home, "Write all the jobs down and agree on who does what" Be fair so no resentment builds.Be open to other solutions, she says If you both hate housework, maybe you can spring for a cleaning service. If one of you likes housework, the other partner can do the laundry and the yard. You can be creative and take preferences into account -- as long as it feels fair to both of you. Not Making Your Relationship a Priority If you want to keep your love life going, making your relationship a focal point should not end when you say "I do" "Relationships lose their luster. So make yours a priority. Problem-solving strategies: Do the things you used to do when you first met. Show appreciation, compliment each other, contact each other through the day, and show interest in each other. Schedule time together on the calendar, Say "thank you"appreciate" It lets your partner know that they matter. Conflict Occasional conflict is a part of life. . The same lousy situations keep repeating day after day -- it's time to break free of this toxic routine. When you make the effort, you can lessen the anger and take a calm look at underlying issues. Problem-solving strategies: You and your partner can learn to argue in a more civil, helpful manner . Make these strategies part of who you are in this relationship. Realize you are not a victim. It is your choice whether you react and how you react.Be honest with yourself. When you're in the midst of an argument, are your comments geared toward resolving the conflict, or are you looking for payback? If your comments are blaming and hurtful, it's best to take a deep breath and change your strategy.Change it up. If you continue to respond in the way that's brought you pain and unhappiness in the past, you can't expect a different result this time. Just one little shift can make a big difference. If you usually jump right in to defend yourself before your partner is finished speaking, hold off for a moments. You'll be surprised at how such a small shift in tempo can change the whole tone of an argument.Give a little; get a lot. Apologize when you're wrong. Sure it's tough, but just try it and watch something wonderful happen. "You can't control anyone else's behavior. "The only one in your charge is you" Trust Trust is a key part of a relationship. Do you see certain things that cause you not to trust your partner? Or do you have unresolved issues that prevent you from trusting others? Problem-solving strategies: Be consistent.Be on time.Do what you say yent.Be sensitive to the other's feelings. You can still disagree, but don't discount how your partner is feeling.Call when you say you will.Call to say you'll be home late.Carry your fair share of the workload.Don't overreact when things go wrong.Never say things you can't take back.Don't dig up old wounds.Respect your partner's boundaries.Don?t be jealous.Be a good listener. Even though there are always going to be problems in a relationship you both can do things to minimize marriage problems, if not avoid them altogether. First, be realistic. Thinking your mate will meet all your needs -- and will be able to figure them out without your asking -- is a Hollywood fantasy. "Ask for what you need directly" Next, use humor -- learn to let things go and enjoy one another more. Finally, be willing to work on your relationship and to truly look at what needs to be done. Don't think that things would be better with someone else. Unless you address problems, the same lack of skills that get in the way now will still be there and still cause problems no matter what relationship you're in.

Me bahut jyada smoking krta hu. Me ise chhodna chahta hu. Ye aadat nahi jati .please help me.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Please try to stop smoking at the earliest. It has many health benefits in the long run. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 – 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 – 9 to one gum every 2 – 4 hours. In week 10 – 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don'€™t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud.

I have breathing problem during night. Most of the time it feels like I am not able to breathe at all and might die due to lack of oxygen. But actually I am breathing normally and it is just what I feel strongly in my mind which is actually causing me a problem. What should I do to avoid such suffocation feeling.

Hi lybrate-user. It appears that you are having panic attacks. It is a common problem and mostly result from misinterpretation of normal bodily symptoms. One would need to understand your symptoms in more details. Like when it started, in what circumstances do you get these symptoms, any symptom in between the attack. Very effective treatment is available for these symptoms. Meet a nearby psychiatrist.

Dear, you know the answer. If you have the means and finance to pursue the mbbs, leaving bds midway, you can do it. No one stops you. You are asking this question and feel depressed because, you know, there is no other alternative. Once you know there is no alternative, why do you want to complain. Just enjoy what ever is present in present. Consult me over online counselling and I will help you overcome this conflict. Take care.

My sister gets out of control whenever she gets angry. She gets irritated whenever we talk about something serious. We don't know how to make her understand.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Hi. Homoeopathic medicines are very effective for increasing concentration and if done with yoga, will give you great results! But practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.

Exhaling keep the back straight and bend upper body and arms forward from the hips, until arms and forehead touch the floor. The buttocks remain on the heels. Breathing normally remain in this position for a while. Relax the whole body, especially the shoulders, neck and back. Inhaling keep the back straight and raise the upper body and arms. Exhaling return to the starting position. Practice the exercise 3 times in total. Remain bending forward for sometime and consciously perceive the movement of the breath on the spine. 2. Virasana: Sit in Vajrasana. Hands rest on the thighs and the body is relaxed. Bring the left foot beside the right knee with the sole of the foot flat on the floor. Place the left elbow on the left knee and rest the chin in the hand. Right hand rests on the right thigh. Tuck the toes of the right foot under. The right knee remains in contact with the floor. Transfer the weight onto the right heel. Concentrate on a fixed point in front. Breathing normally remain in this position for as long as comfortable. Return to the starting position.

Dear , your question is perfect. You can stop smoking now. Immediately your body starts repairing process in itself. You just have to assist your body providing it enough water, oxygen, exercise and good food and of course, no more smoke. Within 6 months your lungs regain its full capacity. Body removes its toxins within one year. Liver and other organs become normal after 18 months. If there are no cancerous cells in your body, there is nothing to worry about cancer. Don't worry. Stop smoking and be happy and enjoy life. Take care.

Hi, when you have true friends why feel lonely and bother about people who are bad to you, they are not even close to being your friend. Its important to count your blessings and take in positive information from enviroment rather than only focusing on negative. Make a diary- make a list of things you are thankful friend.

I'm suffering from depression. I want to consult a doctor but I'm afraid whether they will be as friendly to me as my friends and family. May be professionally they may not be able to help me. I think I need emotional support rather a professional help. What to do? Should I consult a doctor? Also, whom should I consult- psychologist, psychiatrist or a psychotherapist.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Doctors are really friendly unless s/he has been too busy and tired. I think what you will need ideally is a counselor and you should make an appointment and meet one soon. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
