Are Kids Affecting Your Relationship? Here is what You Should Do!

Are Kids Affecting Your Relationship? Here is what You Should Do!

It is said that children are a gift and watching them grow up is one of the most joyful things of life. Having said that, many couples initially feel that having a baby will not change the way things are between them and later find out they are wrong. So how do kids affect the bond between a couple and what can be done to make sure that the strain on the parents is not too much to bear?

Having a baby not only changes the equation between the couple but also, in some cases, the equation between the couple and other friends and family. Many parents do receive a lot of support at the time of the delivery and also receive some initial support on making the shift back home from the hospital. After that, in most cases, you are left to fend for yourselves and you have to iron out the details in front of you as you go. In order to do this in the best way possible, it is very crucial for both the parents of the baby to work as a team.

Questions that you need to answer in an objective and frank manner include those which pertain to who does what for the baby, how you will manage adequate rest as well as how you will divide other activities that need to be carried out around the house.

Quite a few couples who, prior to the baby, have amicable relations end up arguing a lot more after the baby is born. The level of exhaustion and responsibility, which comes as part and parcel of not only looking after oneself and providing a level of care to the partner, but also caring jointly for another human is quite a task.

For many couples, the stress shows by the way of strain. Taking a few deep breaths will help tone down anything, which may spark into an argument and will help you solve your issues in a calm manner. Spending time together while running chores for the baby will help you bond better. Taking time out for each other while the baby is asleep or away to a day care or a school is also very important for maintaining a healthy relationship.

As long as there is an effort to adjust to a new normal rather than struggle to deny change, things may be bumpy initially, but it will definitely work out for the better. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Dear lybrate-user Your main issue is your excessive thinking. I would suggest you cut down on your thinking and be in the present. Your issue is very much treatable but you need to have the will power to work on your areas of concern. However this would need a professional intervention. Please consult a Psychologist in your area and work out a plan with Her/him and diligently work on it and you will certainly see results, please start some form of exercise and have a nutritional diet. Cut down on excessive thinking and focus on positive things in life and you will be able to tide o er this issue. All the best!

Hello dear you do need medicines, yes I agree the Dr. Should have listened to you & sggsted some life style measures as well, as you have mentioned treatment without medicines, that's a long process but the benefits are life-long. You should have a healthy start in the morning relatively relaxed mornings, some light exercise, avoid bed during day time keep it only for sex & sleep, no watching t. V. No reading and go to bed only when feeling sleepy, don't go to bed and wait for sleep, whatever time you might sleep, start your morning at a fixed time, avoid intoxicants--alcohol, smoking etc; socialise, not as a patient, normally. These kind of routine initially might appear difficult but in the long run benefits are huge, wishing you all the best!

This is a very tricky age because it is the last time that you will get to resolve any issues from childhood that will come up looking for a resolution. So, in effect, this is a sign of something that is needing some attention: it could do with unexpressed anger. If you are aware of it, you may deal with it with a counselor. If not, talk to your parents and take them along to a counselor to explore this angle and resolve the depression. At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I AM NOW 51 do I have a risk of developing Alzheimer's or memory loss. Please guide.
Alzheimer's disease is a neurological disorder in which the death of brain cells causes memory loss and cognitive decline Alzheimer's is caused by brain cell death. 3 It is a neurodegenerative disease, which means there is progressive brain cell death that happens over a course of time. Risk factors for developing the condition include aging, a family history of Alzheimer's, and carrying certain genes. Symptoms are - Repetitive questions or conversations Misplacing personal belongings Forgetting events or appointments Getting lost on a familiar route. "Poor understanding of safety risks Inability to manage finances Poor decision-making ability inability to plan complex or sequential activities Inability to operate simple implements, or orient clothing to the body. "Out-of-character mood changes, including agitation; less interest, motivation or initiative; apathy; social withdrawal There is no known cure for Alzheimer's disease - the death of brain cells in the dementia cannot be halted or reversed. There is, however, much backing for therapeutic interventions to help people live with Alzheimer's disease more ably. Some options may reduce its symptoms and help improve quality of life. So if you are having any of these above symptoms do consult a neuropsychiatrist. Have a great day.

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 6am. 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

I am in depression. Due to a lier friend. What should I do now to come out from depression?
You are not really depressed; you are just angry and feel let down. The solution is really very simple: break the relationship with the liar. But the more complicated fact is that everybody lies at least four times a day! lying is quite common and so it is important to accept this fact and learn to live with it. Don? t take it too personally. You must learn to also believe some of what you hear, and know to discern the difference between lies and truth. Many times you have to leave it to the individual to learn lessons from their lies. When people lie one major fallout is that others will not trust them. If you lose the trust of people, what is left? it is important for you to be honest as much as possible. Sometimes you can tell people, and if they accept they can indeed reform but if they don? t, then you have a problem on your hands. Then it is better to quit the relationship.

Dear, That is natural. Some medicines act as suppressing agents and if you don't take those medicines, brain craves for it. You should try to manage your anxiety with psychotherapy techniques and then slowly taper the medicine down under the supervision of your psychiatrist or psychologist. Do not stop the medicine suddenly. Take care.

I do not smoke bt still hv dark and dry lips hw to prevent darkness and dryness of lips,

BAMS

I do not smoke bt still hv dark and dry lips hw to prevent darkness and dryness of lips,
Follow these best tips to get red lips:- * moisturize your lips you must keep your lips moisturized if you want them to stay healthy and therefore pink. If you are going outside, try applying a bit of petroleum jelly or lip balm and if you are inside, use some milk fat (ghee). * use pomegranate seeds and milk. Crush up the pomegranate seeds and mix it with some milk cream. If you apply this home remedy to your lips regularly, you will start to see them becoming redder and fuller. * apply cucumber juice simply slice a cucumber, rubbing it against your lips to allow the juices to soak on. If you do this for five minutes each day, you can lighten dark lips to a beautiful pink color. * mix rose petals in milk. Soak some rose petals in milk for a little bit of time. Then use the petals to make a paste, adding a few drops of both glycerin and honey. Apply the paste on your lips and wait fifteen minutes before gently rubbing it off using milk. * massage with lemon juice cut a thin slice from the lemon, sprinkling a bit of sugar on top and rub your lips with this combination each day. This works well because lemon works to naturally bleach your lips, returning them to their light, pink color while sugar works to remove dead skin cells. * mix honey, almond oil and sugar mix sugar, honey and a little bit of olive or almond oil. Apply this to your lips, massaging it in for ten minutes.

Sir/ madam I wana ask how can I control my temper. I do not have higher patience and get very soon in violence situation as my brain starts paining. please advice something quick solution.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them has to be appropriate. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands; scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. All feelings must be expressed without exception.

Hi

I have a problem of early discharge, anxiety. what should id o ?
Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your stress, but do not worry few lifestyle changes and exercises can help you overcome this problem. One of them is: kegel's exercise: find your pelvic floor muscles finding the pc muscle is easy. The next time you re urinating, stop or slow your pee mid-flow. The muscles used to stop urinating is your pc muscle. Dont actually tense legs, abdomen or butt cheek muscles, instead focus on lifting your entire pelvic floor upward. Most importantly, continue to breathe through the contraction of your pelvic floor. If you re able to stop or slow your urine in mid-stream, you have just successfully located and contracted your pelvic floor muscles! if you re having a hard time, its the same set of muscles you use to tighten your anus. Now you re ready to kegel. Contract your pelvic floor muscles when you re ready to do kegel exercises for men, the first thing you need to do is contract your pelvic floor muscles. Hold the kegel contraction hold that contraction for as long as you can. Most men cant hold a kegel at first for no more than a couple of seconds. Some may not be able to hold it at all. Thats ok, thats what penis exercises are for to make you stronger! make a note of how long you can hold the kegel. Release the kegel contraction and repeat release the squeeze and repeat, for ten repetitions. Gradually build up your kegels until you can hold them for 10 seconds each. C.

Can you suggest some easy ways to keep depression under control and get rid of it. And specially what kind of food is...
The fact is that you must always combine medication with therapy. It is so much better and you would have developed a lot of coping mechanisms by now and may have been able to conduct yourself to the point of even enjoying life to a certain extent. Even now it is not too late, although it might be a little more difficult. Nature and the way we have been made, have fortunately built-in certain structures that let us live close to normal lives, especially up to our teens. After that, if the little signs that there is some problem were not noticed and dealt with, then the issues will come up for the last time seeking a resolution in late adolescence. But for some reason it was not handled well or in time, and therefore this situation where it has now become a permanent negative trait that has to be dealt with more aggressively. Now it is time to seek counseling in tandem with the medication; and you are to keep with the counseling until there is a resolution. Be cooperative and follow all the directives and requirements and you will see a gradual but sure improvement. You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc: exactly like you described. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Now go out there and just do it: nothing is too late in life. Leave the past and don’t relate to the future too much: the present is where your solutions are and you should stay focused in the here and now, always.
