Obviously, this conveys to the female your line of focus, and it is really very embarrassing. You probably have a very narrow view of women and I do not know where you picked up that trait. You are objectifying women and seeing only their carnal side. At some time this obsession with their sexual endowments will drive you into an impulsive act and get you into serious trouble. My advice to you is to get a sex education from some competent counselor and understand that women are more than their sexual value. Apart from that they have so many more interesting sides to them that makes life very exciting and interesting. Sex has so many dimensions to it too: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual. These need to be understood in their true measure and it will surprise you that minus those dimensions you are looking at a telescopic view of a wonderful being made for man! when talking to anyone (and more so to girls), it is very important to make eye contact. Such a person can be trusted to be open and honest, and they will appreciate your confidence in your straight forward look. Girls will be attracted to such people and will want to trust you. With your current behavior, you will only drive them away, and this frustration may lead you to become a person who imposes himself on them reluctantly. Then the very thing that you desire so much will become near impossible to attain and elusive.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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 search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

DIET IN DEPRESSION

Neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and endorphin are responsible for regulating moods and behavior. The body is able to produce these neurotransmitters because of certain nutrients like protein, fatty acids and carbohydrates. Since these nutrients come from the food we consume, it is important to pay attention to your diet. Eating the right foods can help to prevent nutritional deficiencies and hormonal imbalances. This, in turn, helps to prevent or reduce mood changes and emotional disturbances, where dietary deficiencies may have been contributing factors. Here are some tips on what to eat to prevent depression:

The importance of eating a healthy breakfast cannot be stressed enough. It helps to maintain your blood sugar levels and thus keeps your moods stable.Oats make a good breakfast food because they help to combat stress and also keep your cholesterol levels in check.

Don’t drastically reduce fat from your diet. Some amount of fat is necessary for proper functioning. Try to ensure an intake of healthy fats such as omega-3 fatty acids which are found in foods such as nuts, fatty fish and seeds.

Add plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet as these will supply your body with a variety of essential vitamins and minerals.
Foods such as lean turkey, chicken and milk are high in tryptophan, an amino acid that stimulates the release of serotonin. Serotonin enhances mood.

Restrict your intake of caffeinated beverages and alcohol. Some studies have indicated a link between excessive coffee consumption and depression. Alcohol affects mood and can also interfere with sleep.

Avoid following restrictive or crash diets that eliminate an entire food group. These can considerably affect your normal body rhythm and may lead to hormonal imbalances.

Being non-romantic is personality and being busy in work is situational. But taking medicine for sexual performance implies that you don't feel like having sex. Is that the issue? libido is a person's sex drive. Whether you are a man or a woman, you may be interested in learning both short and long-term methods to increase and enhance the interest and pleasure you and your partner take in sex. Have a positive mental attitude and keep your stress level low. If you feel good and self confident you may feel more sexual and attractive to your partner. Prolonged stress can lead to a diminished interest in sex. For people who work stressful jobs, or those with a long commute (we all know how stressful traffic can be), a pinched sex drive is often the result. Men and women react differently to stressful situations. For men, sex is often a release of stressful energy; for women, stress makes sex anathema or beside the point. Understand the different reactions between the sexes and talk with your partner about engineering the right, non-stressful time for sex. Consider, but do not overly rely on, special foods and supplements that claim to increase your libido. Natural supplements can help increase blood flow and sometimes help fight vaginal dryness. Some natural supplements that may increase libido include: vitamin e, zinc, vitamin c, arginine, vitamin a, vitamin c, octacosanol, beta-carotene, vitamin b6, and vitamin b complex. These nutrients may help to boost sperm count, improve sperm motility, enhance prostate gland function, increase testosterone production and create a healthier nervous system. Some foods that may increase libido include: celery, raw oysters, bananas, avocado, nuts, mangoes, peaches, strawberries, eggs, liver, figs, garlic, pumpkin and chocolate. Certain foods and natural supplements such as these may add much needed nutrients and minerals to your diet, but they are unlikely to make a bigger impact on your sex drive and sexual performance as: (1) a healthy, nutritious diet with plenty of lean protein, and a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables (particularly dark green leafy vegetables such as kale or spinach); (2) possibly daily vitamin and nutrient supplements to address any dietary deficiencies; (3) regular exercise (enough to make you sweat) and resistance training; and (4) reaching and maintaining a healthy body fat %. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Consult a psychologist for same.

I am seeing porn videos everyday! Is this a good thing, will it cause any effect to the mental behaviour?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
I am seeing porn videos everyday! Is this a good thing, will it cause any effect to the mental behaviour?
Watching porn once a day is not much, and definitely isn't addiction (unless it goes for hours and hours every time). A good indicator whether it's healthy or not, it's your feelings afterwards: if you feel good, then it's likely ok; if you feel bad or sad then it might be harmful. Porn can peacefully coexist with real life (and that's what happen for most people using it); you could even have a partner and still enjoy porn" on the side" every now and then. But, if you're escaping into porn instead of living real life, that's a problem. When we use something (anything) to escape from life, we're in trouble; if that's your case, seek help: talk with some friends, your parents, a mentor, or some professionals. On the other hand, if you enjoy porn a lot and - at the same time - you have a fulfilling, active and thriving real life, then do not worry and enjoy what makes you happy. And" happy" is the key here. Notice your feelings (both emotional and bodily) after you've watched porn: if you feel good, then it's most likely okay. If you feel bad, sad or unhappy, then it's a sign porn may not be healthy for you. Lastly, keep in mind porn doesn't represent reality. Yes, it's fun and you might learn some trick from it, but a good chunk of what you see in porn will never happen in your life. That's because porn is the visual representation of (average) male sexual fantasies. And fantasy is (more often than not) different from reality.

There is no need to be alarmed to this extent but you do need to develop some control over these desires because if left unattended and if you indulge in it, you may feed into impulses where you may one day lose control. Between the ages of 16 to 18 years, for a duration of almost exactly two years, all boys and girls will have a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone. Due to this hormone there are three identified effects, all because of this chemical: you will become sexually active; you will become aggressive and rebellious; and you will all suffer acne and pimple problems. You have no choice because this is a body clock mechanism that gets activated and over the two years that it prevails, it will gradually subside and return to normal. But during this time you could (driven by the hormones) do something inadvertent that there may be no turning the clock back. So you need to exercise control and channelize this energy through games and sports and hobbies. Also, you would have developed secondary sexual characteristics and they seek to be used and seek fulfillment. Again this is not a problem but the drive can be very bad for those who do not have sufficiently well-developed value systems or a good conscience. These kids can lose control and become reckless. Most kids have a problem, like you do, around their sexual urges and may resort to acting out in the form of masturbation, pornography, and other sexual exploits. If you indulge in any of these you can get into a guilt trip or develop an addiction that may plague you for a long time. There is no threat to your mental well being. Your character will certainly be tested, and it will reflect your development in this regard. The best thing to do is to get a sex education from a counselor and ask all the questions you wish answered. Otherwise, you will want to experiment or seek information from your peers who are not adequately qualified to really do justice to your queries.

10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Dear , Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you?re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse ?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Dear Puja, i am not sure that Gaurav is suffering from clinical depression. Depression may be a part of some other neurological illness. Probably that is why Cognistar was prescribed. Find out his diagnosis clearly. Any drug has to be weighed for its benefit vs harm. There is no drug which is absolutely safe. So will be Cognistar.

Dear, you must understand the difference between nicotine addiction and abuse. Quitting is not easy. There are every possibility of relapsing. The best method is to quit the habit now and sustain with will power. You can definitely quit nicotine in one go. Just stop it and swear not to smoke again. Engage yourself in exercise, games and other engaging activities during the whole day or whenever you feel the urge. Just a week, your habit should change. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I think one or two online counseling sessions and these therapies should help you.
