I feeling depressed and inferior by over thinking about the situation. How can be strong and overcome this situation.
Lybrate-user. Feeling depressed due to situations in life may be due to poor adaptive skills or inability to deal with stressful situation. This could be due to sveral reasons including generalised anxiety or depresion. If you feel that the anxiety is uncontrollable and you continue feeling depressed for last 15 days or more, visit me. You might need an anxiolytic and antidepressant along with counseling for few weeks. Good luck.

3 Proven Ways of Increasing Intimacy

3 Proven Ways of Increasing Intimacy

Here is a list of 3 scientifically proven ways of increasing intimacy with your partner.

1. Look them in the eye and tell them all about yourself

Self-disclosure is an important part of relationships, especially during the initial phase. However, gradually as people feel that they've known enough about each other, communication seems to come to a standstill.

But the actual reason for this is not the lack of things to talk about but resistance which arises out of a feeling of vulnerability. It mostly happens in established relationships because both the partners do not wish to break past the certainty and assurance.

Therefore, the revealing part that may lead to some changes in perception is often skipped. However, not doing so and truly communicating with your partner can help you in increasing intimacy and having a deeper connection with your partner.

2. Share the laughter

Sharing the joy and the humorous experiences is a great way of increasing intimacy with your partner. Since every person's sense of humour is different, humour is a deeply personal aspect of your personality. Therefore, when you share genuine laughter with your partner that is when your sense of humour matches with each other, it improves your understanding and builds intimacy.

3. Tell them how you feel and know how they feel

It is extremely important for you to talk with your partner about how you feel - not just about the relationship, but about other important aspects of your life as well. If conflicts are dealt with by discussing how you feel about them and not on the lines of rationality, you end up feeling more intimate with your partner. Honestly discussing and exchanging your feelings is an amazing way of increasing your intimacy with your partner.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Dear Lybrate User, It's unlikely to be a cancer. However if it continues to be there for a long time or if it grows in size then a biopsy from the tonsil can help to confirm or refute if it's a cancer.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

STRESS MANAGEMENT Introduction: What is stress? Everybody has it, everybody talks about it, yet few people have taken the trouble to find out what stress really is. Many words have become fashionable when scientific research revealed a new concept likely to influence our way of thinking about major issues of life or to affect our everybody conduct. The word stress like ‘Success’ ‘Failure’ or ‘Happiness’ means different things to different people so that defining it is extremely difficult although it has become part of our daily vocabulary. It is effect, fatigue, pain, fear the need for concentration, the humiliation of censure, the loss of blood, or even an unexpected great success which requires complete reformulation of one’s entire life. The answer is yes and no. This is what makes the definition of stress so difficult. Every can be singled out as being ‘it’ since the word applies equally to all the others. In ordinary language coping is used to mainly the outcome of managing a problem and overlooks the intermediate process of appraisal, performance, and correction that most problem solving entails. Coping is not a simple judgment about how some difficulty worked out. It is an extensive, recursive process of self-exploration, self- instruction, self- correction, self-rehearsal and guidance gathered from outside sources. Definitions:- Stress: Hans Selye – Defined stress as the sum of all the non-specific responses of an organism to noxious stimuli. A physical, chemical or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension & may be a factor in disease causation. One of bodily or mental tension resulting from factors that tend to alter existent equilibrium. Concept of stress: The term stress first applied to events or situations such as working for an examination, that may have an adverse effects on someone. Second it is applied to the adverse effects that are induced, which may be psychological or physiological changed. The first set of factors can usefully be called stressors. They include a large number of physics, psychological and social factors in the environment that can produce adverse effects. The term is sometimes extended to include events that are not experienced as adverse at the time but may still have adverse long-term effects. The effect on the person can useful is called the stress reaction to distinguish it from the provoking events. This reaction includes autonomic response (increase in B. P.). Endocrine changes (Secretion of Adr. & nor Adr) and psychological response (Such as a feeling of being keyed up). To explain the body reaction to the stress one scientist (SELYE) formulated the General adaptation syndrome. The body goes through three stage in damaging situations. Stage I Alarm reaction. Stage II Stage of resistance. Stage III Stage of exhaustion. These three stages are analogous to the three stages of man’s life. I. Childhood. II. Adulthood. III. Senility. Stress and Emotion: The relationship between stress and emotion is important, for they are concepts that overlap. Emotions tell more about what is important to people and how they view their daily lives than can any test measuring stress reaction. Both emotions and stress are better thoughts of an processes than as static states. Sources of Stress: 1. Major life events. 2. Natural and technological disaster. 3. Minor life events. 4. Social changes. 5. Occupational changes. 6. Unemployment 7. Stress produced by the individual. Coping: Definitions: Laxarus (1966) when we use the term coping we are referring to strategies for dealing with threat. Lipowski (1970) All cognitive and motor activities which a sick person employ to reserve his bodily and psychic integrity to recover reversibility impaired function and compensate to the limit for any irreversible impairment. Lazarus & Folk (1984) They define coping as constantly changing cognitive and behavioral efforts to manage specific external and or internal demands that are appraised as taxing or exceeding the resources of the person. Mechanism of coping: Coping mechanisms have two components Internal events and observable behavior. After bereavement a person’s coping mechanisms might be first, a return to former religious belief (an internal mechanism) and second joining a social club to combat loneliness (an observable behavior). Functions of Coping: Three major function of coping are: 1) To change the situation for the better life we can either by changing ones own offending action (focus on self) or by changing the damaging or threatening environment. 2) To Manage the somatic and subjective components of stress related emotions themselves, so that they do not get out of hand and do not damage or destroy morale and social functioning. 3) Alteration of (perceptually controlling) the meaning of experience so as to neutralize the problematic character. The three functions of coping are also referred to respectively by the terms A) problem – focused or instrumental coping b) appraisal focused coping c) Emotion focused or palliative coping. The latter two functions are sometimes paired and referred to as palliative functions. Problems focused forms of coping are more apt to be employed when circumstance are viewed as changeable, where as appraisal focused and emotion focused coping occur more often in the context of situation deemed un-control-able. Other terms used regarding coping are: A) Coping styles B) Coping strategies. Research on coping falls into two areas i. E. On coping style and coping strategies. Interest in the latter area has been increasing rapidly in the last decade for a number of reasons. It some studies have revealed that knowledge of the individual characteristics coping style is not always useful in predicting how he or she will respond in novel situation. Second researchers have also found that any given coping strategy or those characteristic of a person’s coping style can have both –ive and +ive as well as short term and long term consequences. Thus labeling an individual style as uniformly maladaptive or ineffectual may not be appropriate or accurate. Third it may be easier to alter characteristics of a person’s coping repertoire than to change the person’s response style. Determinants of coping. Evaluating the Efficacy of coping. There are two types of copers: a. Good copers may be regarded as individuals with a special skill or with personal traits that enable them to master many difficulties. On the other hand there are two groups of patients who are bad copers. One group adamantly denies any difficulty of any description. The second group floods the interview with details of how badly the world and its occupants have treated them. Both good and bad copes have specific traits. Coping is after all, a skill that is useful in a variety of situations, although many modifications of basic principles are called for. Confidence in being able to cope can only be enhanced through self – appraisal, self – instruction, and self-correction over and over. Coping well with illness – with any problem – does not predict invariable success, but it does provide a foundation for becoming a better coper. Stress Management: Steps involved 1) The level of the stressor can be reduced. 2) Techniques to bolster health can be provided. 3) Impact of stressors on health can be suffered. 1) Social support 2) Coping strategies (Raymond Flannery) A) Personal control B) Possess task involvement C) Good habits D) Utilize social support. 3) Short therapeutic intervention (Mardi Horowitz) Read this article then replay.

I cannot give up smoking. Please help me.?

You must have been smoking for a long time and may have tried several times to quit it too. But you must keep trying until you succeed. This is the pattern with smoking: you fail and then you try again. One day you will succeed. You may feel that it is impossible to give up at your age or for having smoked so much. But that it not true. I know of so many people who have given up and were very high level smokers (even 40 cigarettes a day!). YOur heart condition does not even give you an option. You can follow some of these instructions to help you this time. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Hello lybrate-user, I can imagine you are in a tricky position, almost sandwiched between wife and parents. It is best to defer this decision as much as possible. Do not show eagerness to come to a conclusion to your wife. Just try to pacify her everytime she raises a complain, talk to your father if you feel some thing about your mother's behavior is troubling your wife, so that he can suggest some changes to your mother indirectly and keep your wife happy by taking her out over the weekends, buying her what she likes occassionally and taking her and your kid (s) out for a holiday once in 6 months. If your wife is interested in some hobbies or if she can work somewhere encourage her to do that. Appreciate all her efforts and achievements. You will notice after some time she will not be thinking about it so strongly. Good luck.

Hi, Do kegel exercise: Locate the right muscles Insert a finger inside your anus and squeeze the surrounding muscles. You can feel the PC muscle tighten or move upward when you contract it. Then, relax your muscles and feel your pelvic floor return to the starting position. Also try to stop the flow of urine when you urinate. Don’t do this on an extremely full bladder. Practice Makes Perfect Contract your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for five seconds, and then relax for five seconds. Practice it five to six times in a row. Work up to keeping the muscles contracted for ten seconds at a time, and then relax for another ten seconds between each contraction. Focus While Exercising To have a faster result in a shorter period of time, focus your mind on tightening your pelvic floor muscles only. Do not flex the muscles in your abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Breathe normally and avoid holding your breath. Repeat 3 times a day Practice at least three sets of ten repetitions a day. After a while, you’ll be able to exercise your PC muscles seamlessly. You’ll even be able to do them while doing your daily chores! There are other lifestyle changes and diet changes you can make which will help you. Counseling will also help you. Consult me for same. All the best.

Depression is better treated by counselling, friends clubs, laughter clubs, outdoor sports, a gentle and caring hand of mother, sister or a girl friend than just medicines. So forget what you are suffering from, look around. See how nature works. Watch birds, shower in a natural spring, wander in a forest. Get closer to nature. You will discover joy of living.
