Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

It's been quite a long time that she is on medication. Try to change her life style. Engage her in some activity that interests her. Take her for walking, spiritual discourses. Encourage her to meet people and talk to them. Even gardening can help her if you have a garden at home. Talk to her and share her feelings.

Dear Lybrate User, As far as sex is concerned body and mind are like - hardware and software. When there is a problem in your software (mind) the hardware (body) cannot function properly. Your current problem appears more like the "software" problem. You mentioned that you are on medication for anger and depression. I think, you need to deal with these issues first. Along with medicines, please seek help from a Counsellor so that you can understand what is causing your anger and depression. The Counsellor will help you to understand and manage your anger and depressive feelings. Once these emotions are taken care off, your sexual problems might reduce, because of mind-body connection. The Counsellor may refer you to a other professionals if any further investigations/assessments are required. Take care.

How to get rid of Mental tensions? Please help me.
The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance, like your question seeks. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. If you know where the tensions is coming from it is a lot easier. Then meet with a professional and get the necessary help to sort it out for good. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. At work you must learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate.

Get enough rest. To have good mental and emotional health, it's important to take care of your body. That includes getting enough sleep. Most people need seven to eight hours of sleep each night in order to function optimally.
- learn about good nutrition and practice it. The subject of nutrition is complicated and not always easy to put into practice. But the more you learn about what you eat and how it affects your energy and mood, the better you can feel

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. We have to value the opinion of parents. They always try to help you and protect you. Never disregard them. You can choose modelling anytime. First try to bd independent. Parents worry about your marriage. Modelling as a profession is considered bad within conservative culture. You can't blame anyone because there are many such incidents. My advise would be to go with your parents wish. Take care.

See. Depression is now a days growing too much faster in youngsters. It is best treated with homoeopathic medicines. Dont consult a psychiatric because its ultimately leading to more gross problems to patients. And your age is also quiet young. So better consult a homoeopath.

This could depend on whether you have ?Hit Rock Bottom? or not. This is a condition when you have reached the worst state in your addiction. If that has been reached you are a good candidate for treatment and recovery. If not, much of the counseling needs to be focused on helping you to reach a definite decision towards giving up the addiction. Please meet with a counselor and a doctor and let them assess whether you need to be admitted to a rehabilitation center or not and then you can follow their guidance. Attempting it as an out-patient candidate is near impossible to succeed. So instead of wasting time, opportunity, and getting discouraged by failure I suggest that you can straight away go for rehabilitation. You will be administered medicines there too but the center will be geared to help you over a 6 month period to address all the issues and to follow the 12-step method in your recovery. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ?cross addictions? i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend NA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon-type meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your abuse in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely stoned, and admit you by force. This will however, require the family?s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions. This must be your last and final attempt and make it a successful one.

Overcome Hangovers - 5 Best Ways

Drinking too much alcohol has its effects and these are manifested morning after, called as a hangover. Although it affects different people differently, anxiety, dizziness, headache, sensitivity, fatigue and accelerated heart beat are common symptoms.

Here are 5 easy ways to get rid of hangover-

1) Hydrate: Since alcohol causes dehydration, it becomes imperative to drink lots of water to rehydrate your body. It dilutes the toxins left in your body. You can also add electrolyte replenishing sports drinks. Avoid Tea/Coffee or other dehydrating beverages.

2) Go Lemons: Lemons help in reducing effects such as dizziness, muscle pain, sensitivity to light and sound. It also rebalances the body by controlling the blood sugar level and adjusting the pH level. Add Honey helps counter the side effects too.

3) Have Tomato Juice: Tomato Juice contains fructose, a type of sugar that supplements elimination of alcohol from the body quickly. Tomato is rich in mineral, vitamins and enzymes that help the body in recovering.

4) Eat Banana: excessive drinking makes you lose lots of potassium. Having bananas replenishes potassium quickly and also restores other electrolytes. Bananas calm the stomach and boost your energy levels.

5) Have Toast & Egg: Having few slices of toast with an egg can help in more ways than one. The carbohydrates in toast reverse the depletion. Carbon in the burnt part of the toast acts like a filter by removing impurities. Egg provides cysteine that breaks alcohol down and reduces toxins in the body.

These are all the effects of anxiety. May be you should consult your doctor to see if s/he would want to increase the dosage. Regarding the home environment, check to see, if you are part of the cause. If so, learn to do something different by meeting with a counselor. Anyway it is important to work with a counselor to develop skills and techniques to handle anxiety. Medication alone is not adequate.

Dear, psychiatrist prescribed those medicines because they felt the need for those after considering the case. If your wife is facing problems with these medicines you should revisit and appraise the psychiatrist. Take care.

I have difficulty while speaking. The words that I say becomes unclear for other. I feel more saliva comes from the glands and causes my speech difficult to understand. Does have anything to do with lack of drinking water or a lack confidence I don't go for the latter case because it happens during a casual talk.
