Dear lybrate-user, Congratulations for your decision not to smoke. When you are only one cigarette a day, it is easier to stop it fully. Sometimes stopping cigarettes give a mild headache. It will disappear after few weeks, if you don't restart smoking. However the site of your headache indicates, it might be an ENT problem. Consult ENT doctor.

The Secret Behind Infidelity

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
The Secret Behind Infidelity
Psychologist Shivani Misri Sadhoo today finds the most common cause of couples seeking relationship counselling is Infidelity. Infidelity can create havoc in a beautiful relationship- it commonly signifies a crisis in a marital or in a pre-marital relationship, some can repair the damage done; turn an infidelity into an opportunity for growth and reconnection. And some can’t, the loss of trust being irreparable for one, the continued anger and blame becomes intolerable for the other

So what leads to affairs?

1. Emotional
Generally the most commonly cause of infidelity is a sense of emotional disconnection from a partner. The person committing the infidelity will often describe having felt unappreciated, lonely, and sad. These emotions can often lead to the secondary feelings of anger and resentment. Emotional roots can lead to affairs both emotional and physical in nature. An emotional affair may start off looking like a friendship, but over the time, the level of intimacy increases and more personal information, especially that relating to dissatisfaction and unhappiness in their primary relationship, can become an integral part of the dynamic.

2. Physical relationship
In some case, infidelity is caused by unsatisfied physical relationship. A poor sex life phase post marriage generally caused from many factors like – professional work pressure, commitments towards children, childbirth environmental factors etc.
It’s important that in such case, both the partners should communicate openly with each other, take deliberate time out for their schedule for a romantic getaways or for a warm dinner. In such a situation partner should value their relationship more than their personal desires, feeling, and physical requirements.

3. Perceive affairs as quick fix
Many a time people perceive affairs as distractions, partners go for affairs to kill boredom or to add spark forgetting that it may become a “quick fix” but will definitely bring long-term consequences no matter they agree or not.

Hi
My TSH I'd very high 9
I am taking Eltroxin 75 mg since a long time.
Recently I am getting pains in various parts ...
lybrate-user, The dose of Eltroxin may have to be increased to reduce TSH. Once TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Increased TSH or uncontrolled hypothyroidism does lead to muscle and joint pains. Pain in stomach, may be unrelated to other muscular or joint pains. Thanks.

How can I increase my memory? I forgot things after sometime. Please suggest me. If.

Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Now take you pick!
