Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

I have been a smoker for 40 years and now I am very serious about giving up. With such a long habit, I am unable to rid of the tobacco habit. Are there any short cuts? any substitutes like nicotine chewing gum or any other alternatives? please help me get over. Many thanks.

It is high time for you to stop it. Since it is a long standing problem you may need a direct consultation preferably with a psychologist or clinical psychologist. But before that prepare yourself. Try those methods check your motivation ti leave smoking. That is how strong is your wish to change and how effort you are willing to take. Keep a chart of situations where there is high chance for smoking and ways to avoid it include some relaxation exercise or yoga practice in your schedule.

Feeling sad and depressed always, feeling stressed due to daily family issues, inability to deal with ongoing stress, becoming socially withdrawn are all signs of depressive phase. If you are facing these symptoms persistently for more than 2 weeks, you should not hesitate in consulting a psychiatrist for help.

I feel depressed on my bed with my wife during sex so how can I increase my sex power.

I feel depressed on my bed with my wife during sex so how can I increase my sex power.
Hi, There are two different categories that show up when one have low sexual energy complain. There may be difficulty in achieving the feeling of arousal. One may get aroused for a short period and so they fail in maintaining this aroused state of mind. This is the second condition and this also creates trouble for some. Moderate exercise can help in increasing sex energy to a great extent. Simple push-ups or 30 minutes of regularly walking or jogging can work wonders in building sex power. Sex and exercise both make a person sweat, increase blood circulation, diminish stress and burn calories. They make one feel better and confident. Exercise helps in making sex more enjoyable and satisfying. The exercises of the legs, backs and chest enhance the release of testosterones in men and women. It also increases the flexibility in one’s body in order to accommodate in different positions. Men need cardio exercises in order to have a sustained erection… Oysters, almonds, cashew nuts, sesame seeds, and walnuts are best sources of zinc. Nuts and seeds are also rich sources of arginine, an amino acid which is essentially required for healthy erections and sperm production. Fruits like apples, apricots, blueberries, cherries, papayas etc. Play a vital role in keeping the body sexually healthy. Fresh and leafy green vegetables like asparagus, carrots, cucumber, and spinach are the best source for most vitamins and minerals. Dates – Eat 5 – 7 dates everyday for a week to see surprising sexual stamina. Aswagandha – It is a gift for Indians. Consume Aswagandha lehyam (paste) 10 grams for instant sexual stamina. You can find the result in few hours. You can find aswagandha in the nearest ayurvedic shop. Chocolates – There are antioxidants in chocolates. These are good for the body as it increases the excitement. The chemical called phenylethalmine is there in these foods and enhances the sexual drive of the people. Pumpkin seeds – These are rich in zinc and this is good for boosting the sperms of men. This again improves the deficiency of testosterone in some men. The seeds are full of vitamins that give energy to the libido of any human being. Fishes – The sea water fishes are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and these helps in improving the libido. This enhances the sexual stamina and the sexual urge for men and women. Eating of fish can diminish depression and give new hope and bright mood. The brain function is also improved with the omega 3 fatty acids and hence is good for all over improvement of sexual urge. Some such fishes are – trout, Tuna, Sardines, Herring, Anchovies, Mackerel and Wild Salmon. Onions – These are vegetables with aphrodisiac properties to help the libido. If you think you have low libido, you can take this by crushing them and frying them in butter. You must add honey with the golden onions and eat them in empty stomach for improving the sexual drive. Oysters – Oysters have been used since a long time as a love drug. Casanova and Cleopatra had one thing in common. They had a love for oysters. Oysters have been known to have been used by the Italian romancer to seduce women. In fact, research has proven that oysters are a good love drug. Oysters improve the levels of dopamine in the body and they are said to boost the libido levels both in men as well as in women. Oysters are rich in zinc, which is essential for the production of healthy sperms. Watermelon –Some experts have touted watermelon as the latest love drug. Since it contains citrulline amino acids, it helps relax the very blood vessels that enhance the sex drive in a person. If you want to get your partner in the mood, then prepare a watermelon sorbet and share it with him. Asparagus –Not only does asparagus have a suggestive shape, but it is also rich in a Vitamin B known as folate! This fosters the production of histamine, which is important for a healthy sex drive both in men as well as in women. If you want, you can even grow your own asparagus or buy it fresh from the Farmer’s Market. Avocados ­ – Not only are avocados known as fruits that increase the brain levels, but they are now being touted as love drugs. Celery –Eating celeries may be the last thing you would think of to boost the libido, but research goes to show that it increases the pheromone levels in the sweat of a person and makes the males more attractive to the females. Figs – Legend has it that figs were a hot favourite with Queen Cleopatra. The ancient Greeks also thought it improves the fertility levels of a person. Banana –This fruit that is rich in potassium can help boost your libido and your sexual performance. Red hot chilli peppers –Naturally hot and spicy, this food is known to boost both the libido of a person, as well as their sexual performance. Eggs –Eggs can help balance the hormone levels of a person and improve the sexual performance of a person by decreasing their stress levels. A healthy lifestyle that keeps a person active with proper food and adequate exercise help in improving one’s sex power. Diet plays a big role in one’s sex life. Healthier the person better is the sex life. Sex life reflects the lifestyle one leads. Do pranayama (in yoga) everyday for excellent sexual stamina. Consult a psychologist to help you out better.

Dear lybrate user, I understand that you are in a very difficult situation. I see that you are worried about your family life and your own habits. All human beings need love and care. Since you are staying away from your family, I guess you picked up these habits (maturbation and pan masala) because probably you were feeling lonely and needed some bodily pleasures. Please understand that pan masala can be addictive and a prolonged use may cause cancer. Masturbation is healthy when it is done to relieve your intense sexual urge. But maturbation as a habit or when done under compulsion, is harmful. If you do not control you mind, you will start maturbating more frequently but may not have the same pleasure everytime. Once you get used to the self pleasure, when you come back on leave you will not be able to enjoy sex with your wife. Hence, please try to control maturbation - initially reduce it to once a day, then may be once in 2 - 3 days and later on only when you have intense sexual urge. Watching porn is also very harmful for your marriage. What is shown in porn videos is not true in real life. If you expect similar sexual acts in your bed room, it is not possible. Sex is a physical need. And for human beings, when two partners are physically and emotionally connected, sex is pleasurable. Over exposure to violent sexual acts will make you disinterested in sex later on. It may also cause guilt and shame and aversion to sex. So to avoid both these habits try to do some activities which are healthy, like start some physical exercise, go for walk, cycling etc. If possible learn some yoga/pranayama. This will help you in relieving your physical and mental stress. If you have faith in your religion then start some rituals that you believe in. More importantly, please try to understand that this job is keeping you away from your family and you are deprived of some basic needs like love and care. You also mentioned that you live without food sometimes. In such situation, you may think about other job options in india. There are so many people who work here. Try to find out jobs suitable for your skills. May be you can just start something on your own. I understand that you are very keen to have a baby. But it is a huge responsibility. So first, make a good emotional connect with your wife, have some future plans together. Your child will need his/her father, please remember that. So think rationally. Take care.

Depression is a serious mental illness causing significant personal distress and socio-occupational dysfunction. Person suffering from depression experience sadness of mood, low self esteem, poor self confidence, bleak view of future, lack of energy, reduced pleasure in surroundings, altered sleep and appetite. They usually feel themselves helpless and hopeless. Many a time they are unable to take right decision. Few of them commit suicide and many of them suffer for many months with loss of job and earning. If you are having these symptoms, you must take a professional help. I advise you for psychiatric evaluation.

Aspen is useful in management of vague and unknown fear. The aforesaid symptom is otherwise called “free floating anxiety” in psychiatry. The fear comes of its own and after remaining for an hour or more, goes off its own. Also, aspen is useful when you have to go to any office for the first time to get job done. Hesitation with strangers, this remedy is almost specific for shyness and timidity.

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. 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or? chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.
