Morning sex is good for the brain

Morning sex is good for the brain

Morning sex is good for the brain

Just several minutes of morning sex can keep you looking younger and improve your mood for the rest of the day.

Sex, on its own, comes with a few benefits but did you know that having sex first thing in the morning is capable of improving your mental abilities?

Men accumulate testosterone as they as they sleep and from the time they wake up, they have a three-hour window when they are brimming with testosterone.

That early morning erection is not called 'morning wood' or 'morning glory' for nothing. Whatever it is called, having an erection on waking up is as good a reason as any to initiate a little morning sex.

Not only is it a great way to kick start your day because it'll leave you feeling lively and energised, a great love-making session will also alert your brain nerves making you mentally alert after you have spent up to eight hours asleep.

Another great perk is that morning sex is a really good way to connect with your partner before the day begins.

Studies also back this up, with a recent one saying, 'adults who start their day with sex are more likely to be happier and healthier than those who start their day with a cup of coffee and breakfast.'

So dump the coffee and hump your boo

Hi there ~ Exercise is something you can do right now to boost your mood. Aim to exercise for 30 minutes or more per day—or break that up into short, 10-minute bursts of activity. A 10-minute walk can improve your mood for two hours. The key to sustaining mood benefits is to exercise regularly. Choose activities you enjoy. You don’t need to train at the gym or run mile after mile. Pick an activity you enjoy, so you’re more likely to stick with it. Find exercises that are continuous and rhythmic. The most benefits for depression come from rhythmic exercise—such as walking, weight training, swimming, martial arts, or dancing—where you move both your arms and legs.

If the depression is mild, CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) can show good results. It can be given by a psychiatrist, clincal psychologist or trained person. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user. You are not abnormal at all. In this given situation, everyone will have the same behavior pattern. Very few will have the maturity to overcome such situation. In this particular aspect, maturity is, accept that as your friend and be a friend to her. This could take some time. But you have to do it. Another thing is that, you still want her to be your girl friend, which is not happening and thereby you are depressed. Forget her as your girl friend. Accept her as a friend. Take care.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

What is parkinson's disease?

Diploma in Community Medicine, MBBS Alternative Medicine, Diploma in Acupuncture
Alternative Medicine,
hello Parkinson's disease�affects the way you move. It happens when there is a problem with certain nerve cells in the�brain.Normally, these nerve cells make an important chemical called dopamine. Dopamine sends signals to the part of your�brain�that controls movement. It lets your muscles move smoothly and do what you want them to do. When you have Parkinson's, these nerve cells break down. Then you no longer have enough dopamine, and you have trouble moving the way you want to.

My Son who is 16 years old, is having severe anger management issues and bursts out very often. He has started lying very often. We are at our wits end right now. Wanted some advise on how to manage this situation, is Phycatric counseling helpful?

Yes if his aggression is too severe you need to consult a doctor- psychiatrist for medication along with a psychologist for psychotherapy. Anger usually rooted in some other problem, to eliminate that few sessions of counseling will be required. It will help him immensely.

Last 6 months I am suffering from anxiety and also I am taking prescription from neuro psychologist now I am feeling better but my question is when I will stop my tablets.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will stop taking medication when you get well and work along with a counselor to develop skills and techniques and tools to handle the daily stresses of life. Please combine the two and get the best results. Then as you improve, anywhere between 6 months to three years, with no episodes of anxiety, you can be weaned off of the medication. Anxiety is fear based, and it is an abnormal reaction to fear. These adaptations are not working for you and so the medication. In counseling you could identify the source of this fear and deal with that event in the present and gradually reduce the scare and face it with confidence. In the meantime, do aerobic exercises, yoga and meditation, have a good diet, sleep well and do not increase your stress. In other words; just be responsible, be respectful, and be functional always.

I am a 22 years old student and I can't concentrate on my studies. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are probably distracted die to some stress which you need to identify soon. Retaining information to be recalled at will is the role of memory. For which you need to do the following: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. Good social contacts are good for memory too: so make and keep good friends. 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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.

If you have good salary. She listens your words. Now you are low. She is high. You have two sides are important. Better to talk to her in a pleasing manner. Tell the importance of your parents and your responsibilities. Give excessive priority to her in all aspects. Request to stay with my parents. Express your better loving words and impress her. She must listen your words. Do not argue and do not command. Because she is earning. You have no other options. Except requesting and pleasing manners is the only solution. Better to try to impress her. You have also talk to your parents. Take the advise of them. Ask what to do. Request there is any other solution in this side. If not then requesting wife is the solution. Do not think too much about this matters. It is common in all families. Everything come close one day. Do not spoil your health. Be friendly with others. Spend most of the time with friends and be sociable. Best of luck.

You might need a psychiatric evaluation of your condition. To avoid loneliness you can start by judging people lesser and making friends with them. Keep in mind that there will be some differences of opinion because everyone thinks very differently. Have tolerance and understanding for your loved ones. You can also talk about commonly spoken topics like weather sports cars studies children food etc. These topics are safe and not controversial if you play your cards properly. Participate in community activities and clubs. Visit public parks and smile and greet people and make small talk. This will make you more popular and approachable and people may want to become your friends. Invite people to your house over meals as it helps strengthen relationships.

Study about agoraphobia and related condition called social phobia over internet. Try to practice non-pharmacological means of therapy for the same. The medicine you are already taking is appropriate. There is no need to modify that. Biofeed progressive muscle relaxation techniques and optimal breathing exercises especially during the period of nervousness are enough to control Learn systematic desensitisation that involve facing the situation that potentially anxiogenic in graded manner. Try to master and gain confidence over least fearful social situation. Than try to conquer other potentially more threatening social situation. So making a list of anxiogenic social situation that makes you anxious and nervous is essential.

Psychiatrist,
This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u.
