Being Good in Bed takes much more than Knowing good Kamasutra Skills

Being Good in Bed takes much more than Knowing good Kamasutra Skills
"Focussing only on sexual intimacy is unhelpful unless you have an emotional compatibility with your partner. This is because, good relationship and good sexual intimacy are very closely linked to each other.
Here are three top tips to help improve couple compatibility.

*Make time and Talk to Each Other: Share your day with your partner. Talk about the good things that happened, the challenges you faced and anything that strengthens the mental bond.

*Stop Criticizing: this is Something that couples desperately need to work upon. You don't have to be harsh while telling your complaints given the fact you'd have to wake up right next to your partner every day. Try converting your complaints into requests for change in them.

*Help Each Other in Your work:
Just extend your helping hand to help your partner in the things that they do. Sometimes, saying ""I am here for you"" is good enough for the person."

How to increase concentration on studies and how keep in mind for a long period of time what's we study?

Master Of Science In Counseling & Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hi, you can increase your concentration by doing yoga and some meditation techniques. Similarly you need to revise and recall whatever you learn. When you understand and revise the points will remain in your long time memory which helps to recall. When there is lack of revision or understanding the facts the data which are stored in short term memory cannot be recalled easily. All the best!

5 Reasons Why People Get Addicted To Drugs

Psychiatrist, Mumbai
5 Reasons Why People Get Addicted To Drugs

Nowadays, drug abuse is a universally condemned action such that selling certain drugs are illegal. Children are not allowed to take drugs until they reach a certain age such as 21 for most states in India. Lots of problems start occurring when you are addicted to a certain drug. It is also nearly impossible to stop since the nerve cells change the way they function due to drugs.

These nerve cells overstimulate the 'reward circuit' of the brain. This means that your brain constantly needs to be 'rewarded' and this reward comes in the form of drugs. There are many reasons why people become addicts and here are some of them.

  1. People want to get high: This is perhaps the most common reason why people become drug addicts. The moment they take in one drug, they love the feeling they get so much that they keep wanting to go back to it.
  2. People want to fit in: This is also a very common reason. When all your friends and perhaps even your bosses and other superiors are taking drugs, you do not want to feel left out or ostracized by your friend group. This is why many people start taking drugs.
  3. Unintentionally taking drugs due to injuries or medical conditions: Sometimes a doctor prescribes a medicine for a certain time period but it does not work or works too well and so you keep taking the drug so that you will feel better. This happens more often than you think.
  4. People take drugs to relieve stressThis is another very common reason why people take drugs. You may easily rationalize with them thinking that taking drugs is a good way to relax from work and family pressures. However, the long term effects of taking drugs are much worse than the stress.
  5. Boredom from daily life: In young teens and adolescents especially, life can be so boring that they want to try something new and thus resort to drug abuse.

Hi to start with practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing.

I am a 22 year old female. I stay up late night to study. Because I feel it is the time I can concentrate. But sometimes when I get emotional or angry or nervous I get seizures like fits. Is it because of my sleeping schedule?

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets.. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6 am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help

I have more stress in mind .but. I don't know to come out from stress .plz help me.

Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
Stress is a reaction to a real or perceived event that acts as a stressor. In other words, how much stressed one feels depends on how much stress one perceives in a given situation. Start by making a stress diary. Identify what causes stress. Ask why it causes stress. Is it a negative presumption about the even or a reality that is bothering you. Then figure out, how you have been dealing with the stressor. If the way you handle stress doesn't help, figure out the alternatives. If you by yourself are not able to do this exercise, consult a psychotherapist.

Quit Smoking By Natural Remedies

Home Remedies to Quit Smoking

1. Oats

Oats is an age-old remedy used to quit smoking. It is one of the best home remedies to stop smoking. Take a tablespoon of ground oats and mix it in 2 cups of boiled water. Leave it for a night, and then, boil it the next morning for about 10 minutes. Drink it after every meal. Avoid taking it at night. Oats helps to flush out the harmful toxins from the body while lowering the craving for smoking. It also helps in easing the withdrawal symptoms.

2. Water

Drinking plenty of water is the ultimate remedy to treat the habit of smoking. Water will help in detoxifying the body. Whenever you feel the urge to smoke, drink a glass of water. This will not only decrease the craving but will also reduce the withdrawal symptoms.

Cayenne pepper is also one of the best natural remedies to stop smoking. Include the spice in your diet or mix a few pinches in a glass of water. Cayenne pepper helps in desensitizing the respiratory system to all the addictive things, such as tobacco and nicotine. It also helps to lessen the craving for smoking.

4. Ginger

One of the most common withdrawal symptoms of smoking is nausea, which can be easily eased up by taking ginger juice.

5. Lobelia

Lobelia is also beneficial in lessening the craving for smoking. It helps to overcome the withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, irritation, too much hunger, as well as poor concentration.

You can have orange juice to replenish the deficiency of Vitamin C in the body.

You can also try herbal cigarettes that have 0% nicotine in them. These are made with herbs, like mint, cinnamon, vanilla, licorice, lemongrass, cornsilk, or clover. They are completely nicotine free, but still give that same hand-to-mouth pattern and inhalation that smokers are used to. They come in plenty of flavor combinations for everyone to try

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
No I don't think so. Loving someone so much is not an illness. If her husband doesn't like this behaviour of hers and she loves him so much then she should try to modify her nature accordingly. They should try to understand basic difference of nature among individuals and be tolerant towards each other.

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

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
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.

I feel nerve tightness in temporal nerves, jaws and around the head I had these symptoms since 2010 when I had 2010 it got cured after taking medicines but in 2011 it again 2012 I again took antidepressants for two months then these symptoms were gone for 4 months but again started. I then after six months went to psychiatrist n took medicine like dimip/depsol 75, gabapin NT, valpipchrono500.i took them for one year but did not get much relief. I then changed the doctor n he added one medicine lamitor OD. I immediately felt better. and for one year I was ok. But then it seemed that those medicines stopped working on me. I then recently took Ayurveda medicine. I felt excellent for last 5 months. But now again these medicines stopped working. Due to this nerve tightness I become depressed and I have lot of dreams so do not have sound sleep. Please suggest.

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, recurrent depressive disorder is recurrent as the name suggests. Your history also suggests the same. It comes on its own and goes away like a passing cloud on its own. Only during the depressive phase you need antidepressants allopathic or ayurvedic. They are mainly to endure the depression and to prevent suicide. It has not much of preventive value for future episodes of depression. To prevent every year depressive episode, your psychiatrist has prescribed valip chono and later lamitor od. These preventive drugs have to be taken for many years. And also they have to be taken during your normal phase also. The dose will be adjusted according to the benefit - whether every year attack has reduced, whether the severity is less, whether you spend many months in normal mood. For all these things please maintain a mood chart daily for years. Take the mood chart to psychiatrist and discuss with him/her. Nerve tightness is one of the symptoms of depression rather than cause for depression. No sound sleep also is one of the symptoms.

Hi, I am 25 years old. I have problems with most of things. I frequently have problems with whatever my parents say. I have frequent fights with my boyfriend. All for the reasons that I think are right. I want people not to disturb me in anyway. shouting of parents, ignorance from loved ones, indifference of people, if somebody disturb my sleep. I get extremely angry and I shout at them, bang doors. Cancel functions etc. I am an HSP. I am light sleeper. I am literature student. I have family problems. I can't adjust with people. Especially I can't share room with anyone. When that happens I go hopelessly irritated. I go frequently angry, gloomy so on. I also have PMS. No other health disorders. When everything happens according to my wish and will, am cheerful and extremely joyful. What must be done? I have anxiety disorders and I get up in the mornings with pounding heart. Most days this happens.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You sound lie someone who is scared but acting angry. Scared people want everything to be under thier control, and so anyone can come along and easily disturb you if they disrupt your system. It can be so bad that you will become vulnerable to others. Because you want to control, you will believe that you are always right! If you go back into your childhood and perhaps with some help from your parents, you could probably find out what happened for you to become this disturbed with fear. That information will be very useful to a counselor to assist you in dealing with this problem. We are all social animals and need each other. If you feel the opposite of this it is not human and so you will have to cultivate friendships and you are not to control them either. If you deal with your fear a lot of your issues will get happily resolved. You should never ever escalate anger over the fear: no one will realise what is going on and everyone will instead get easily irritated with you. You need the help of a counselor not doubt.

Keep to yourself for some days. Don't try to struggle for the opposite. This too will pass. If you struggle against the" depression" it may last longer or else take a counseling session.
