You seem to be having high expectations fro your first night and your husbnd. And you are thoroughly disappointed that this is how your sex life will be? well to ally your doubts, it looks like that your husband hasn't got any experience of having sex before (which might mean that he's not slept around. Which could be good news for you and he's saved his chastity for you). This also might mean that he was suffering from performance anxiety and ddnt know hw to please you in bed. When a man is anxious and scared, it's common that he'll perform poorly in bed and if he's not even skilled then it'll be an even worst show ever. On top of that he might be scared of you as well. I'm not sure if the first nights outcome should be used as a yardstick to measure and evaluate his sexual prowess through out his life or could you give him a second chance where you could teach him how to pleasure you. Since you seem to be having some knowledge on this subject. If you see the statistics, you will know that most first nights are failures. I also suggest that you give your marriage a second chance so that your husband is more skilled in this subject. A sex therapist or counsellor can also help him to reduce his anxiety in bed and learn the techniques. For you, I suggest that you don't judge him so harshly and be patient with him. He's not an impotent loser just because he" came" too early. He's much more than a sex machine in bed! and probably you haven't noticed that yet. Marriage is not only about sex. Please see him as a human being who is willing to share his life with you and get old with you. A deeper understanding, trust, mutual respect, open communication are the central to a successful married life. All the best.

I have short time memory power I forgot everything with in the short period of time so please suggest me how can I increase my memory power?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are probably distracted by some developments in your life right now. Stress is a memory buster and can make it very difficult to remember if it is not dealt with immediately. Please do some of the following to sort out the situation you are in now: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. 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too.

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.

Hi I am 20 year old and I have problem of Drinking. I am not live without drinking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are too young to be unable to live without drinking alcohol. If you are that addicted, you must look at whether you have a genetic factor, an oral issue, a rigid value system and also a script issue. These, either alone or in combination of two or three or all four make you an addictive personality. Of course there is the issue of dependence and tolerance that would have developed with the effect of the chemical. Since you are a teenager, there is still a lot of neurons that are still forming and establishing itself. Drinking during your teens, will permanently damage those nerves and affect decision making, taking responsibility and memory. Every time you drink heavily, you damage thousands of brain cells, never to be replaced. So the choice is very clear: quit right now through some treatment, and later when you have better controls you may choose to drink socially, other factors being normal. You have two choices in treatment: admit yourself into a hospital for detoxification over a two-week period to remove the physical craving and follow that up with counseling. The other option is to go for rehabilitation to a recovery center and stay there for 6 months and go through the 12-step process and work on the many issues that usually trouble the addict. After both these options, it is highly recommended to attend the aa meetings to get the best kind of support ever experienced for recovered alcoholics. Private counseling can continue in conjunction with the recovery and it must last for at least 3 complete years of total abstinence, if you are to truly consider yourself to be clean off of this habit.

I am not sure about what you are referring to but,,, Following expalination and tips are scientifucally proven and if done on a regualr basis will help manage your stress and thus reduce depression. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Let me. Know if you need any further help. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Write down small sentences and read it aloud when alone at home. Keep doing this at least for a month. Also read a few paragraphs from books, magazines and news paper, aloud while alone. It will give you some practice to talk consistently and your language skills will also improve. Try reciting sanskrit shlokas which will train your tongue. You may also consult a speech therapist.

I am 29 years old arranged married and mother of a 6 years old boy I believe in love and love stories. I could not find or others words I didn't find anyone to be loved. After 5 years of marriage I met someone whom I love more than anything. I feel he is my soulmate. But I could never fullfill his dreamt criteria. I feel as a failure I feel very lonely.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The grass will seem greener on the other side, always: more so because you are not happy in your current marriage. Arranged marriages have their pluses and minuses. You have to make good with what you have. You will always find better men and soul mates in life because of your dissatisfaction. I don?t know what is wrong with your present relationship but, if you work on it, maybe it will improve. There is a child too to consider. Love and romance in novels are portrayed with some drama, and cannot be taken for real. They do appeal to the fantasizing mind, and to people who are chronic and diehard romantics. But real life is different; and fiction can eulogize it beyond proportion for dramatic effect and for commercial marketability. Come down to mother earth and face the issues in your current marriage, and only if that cannot be sorted out because of the other?s unwillingness or irreconcilable differences, you can decide to call it quits. As a principle, it is always advisable never to get into another relationship while still in one. Now let me give you the bad news: a true soul mate is one with whom you find the perfect chemistry, both ways. The last couple of words are the crux: if you do not ?fulfill his dreamt criteria, you do not have the right chemistry. Even in normal relationships, it is a two-way street: you must both feel the need for each other. Any one-way relationship does not have the right ingredients to make a good match: which is often called compatibility. So then you are being very unfair to yourself to come to the conclusion that you are a failure because you cannot meet up to his expectations. He needs to accept you as you are, otherwise he can lump it, period. That does not determine your worthiness. Go back to the drawing board and work out the criteria in your marriage before looking out for another.

I am not able to remember anything for a long time. what should I do? Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
As a student poor memory can really jeopardize your academic performance. Partially, this may be true because of your age. I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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.
