Reasons For Lack Of Sexual Intimacy!

Reasons for Lack of Sexual Intimacy

Sexual intimacy is an integral part of a relationship and almost as imperative as trust and communication to sustain and enhance that relationship between two people. It is associated with feelings of loveromanceemotionsaffection and most importantly commitment to each other. Sex helps bond relationships further and creates a broader sense of intimacy in a loving relationship. However, lack of intimacy with a partner can be a source of frustration and anxiety in both men and women. This can create feelings of rejection in a person and can develop feelings of self-doubt in them. Further, It can increase a gap between a couple which in the long run can cause irreparable damage to their relationship. Hence, It is very important for a person to know and understand what can be the probable causes of low sexual desire in their respective partners. Listed below are a few causes: 

1. Stress

Studies indicate that stress can be a major reason for decreased sex drive in people especially, in men. Stress at home, at work or any kind of stress that may have a huge impact on a person, can leave them exhausted. This can make sleep or any other way to unwind and relax more appealing compared to sex which can feel like a chore for that person at that time.

2. Unresolved conflicts

Problems and unresolved issues in a relationship can make your partner withdraw themselves emotionally and show less affection. If one feels disrespected, unappreciated, criticized or feels let down by their partner, it may put a strain on intimacy.

3. Emotional intimacy

Lack of emotional intimacy can be a reason for a lack of sexual intimacy too. Be it a man or a woman, feeling disconnected from your partner can make it hard to connect during sex or enjoy it. Spending quality time together can help build emotional intimacy and ultimately bring back physical intimacy.

4. Depression

Depression is a serious illness that interferes with all aspects of your life, including your sex life. It is not the same as feeling sad for a short while as that is temporary and fades away with time. If your libido has been low for an extended time, and if it’s causing you stress or sadness, it might be time to talk to your doctor.

5. Self-esteem

Body image issues and low self-esteem affect both men and women. If a person doesn’t feel confident in their skin and feels unattractive it can take a toll on their relationships, particularly when it comes to physical intimacy because it leads to inhibitions. In such a case, complimenting your partner and showing patience and understanding can help your partner feel more comfortable about themselves.

6. Hormonal imbalance

Hormonal imbalance can compromise your sex life by affecting your energy, physical sensitivity and desire. The three main hormones that could be affecting sexual desire are estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone levels. The hormonal imbalances found in menopause, pre-menopause and post-menopause can result in the decline of sexual drive in women. If it persists it’s best to visit a health professional for proper guidance.

7. Rejection

Rejection by your partner in earlier times can lead to a lack of sexual intimacy. If you have ignored and turned down sexual advances from your partner in the past, it can make your partner feel unwanted and can put them off intimacy. This can make them distant and not initiate sex.

Sexual intimacy plays a major role in any relationship/marriage. When there is a lack of sexual intimacy it makes the couple less satisfied with each other. Seeking help from a professional marriage counselor or relationship expert can be beneficial in understanding your issues and guiding you to work it out together.

5 Ways To Deal With Anxiousness In Kids!

Worrying is a natural tendency among children. While some worrying helps children to excel, too much worrying can lead to anxiety related disorders. From friendship woes to homework to fear of failure, there could be a lot of factors that can lead to anxiousness in a kid. This problem is mostly witnessed in school going, children. Some of the common symptoms that are portrayed include the need to be perfectionists, seeking of constant reassurance, getting sick worrying too much, scared of participating in a group event.

How to prepare your child to overcome anxiety?

  1. Help them prepare: One major cause of anxiousness in a child is ill preparation. Be it tests or essays, if a child has not prepared well, he tends to get nervous and suffer from anxiousness. The solution is to teach them various study techniques such as flashcards and quizzes. If this is done regularly and reviewed meticulously, your child will get over the fear of failing and perform better.
  2. Teach them to focus: Losing focus is a major tendency among kids who tend to suffer from anxiety related disorders. Keeping the concentration going is a major skill that needs to be taught by parents. Kids often go blank during tests thinking others are far smarter than they are. Some good method to tech focus is to teach them reverse counting, slow breathing technique and frequent consumption of water.
  3. Pass on the anxiety: Anxiousness has to be passed in form of something. Certain activities, therefore play great strokes in addressing anxiousness. Teach your kids to distress in the form of TV or teach them to write when they are anxious. This not only takes off anxiety from the equation, it helps a kid to relax without the fear of failure.
  4. Reassurance: Kids suffering from anxiousness often need repeated reassurance about the task in hand. The task here for a parent is to make their kid understand that failure will not impact their relationship with their parents. Often the failure of letting someone down makes a kid anxious. Constant reassurance will curtail the tendency. This being said, parents should ensure that this doesn’t become a habit for the kid. The idea is to make them comfortable and not letting your child dependent on you.
  5. Relaxation techniques: A study published by the Journal of School Counseling argued that kids who practice relaxation techniques are far less likely to suffer from anxiety and stress related disorders as compared to their peers. Some of the relaxation techniques that can be easily learned and practised include breathing exercises, meditation, yoga and so on. This exercise helps children to focus and concentrate more.

घबराहट के लक्षण - Ghabrahat Ke Lakshan!

घबराहट एक ऐसी बीमारी है जिसकी वजह से कई बार खतरनाक स्थिति पैदा हो जाती है. इसको हमलोग आम बोलचाल की भाषा में तनाव, अवसाद या चिंता भी कह कर पुकार सकते हैं. देखा जाए तो घबराहट अपने आप में एक बिमारी तो है ही लेकिन साथ ही कई बीमारियों की जड़ भी है. इस बिमारी में हमें मुख्य रूप से दुःख, बुरा महसूस करना, दैनिक गतिविधियों में रुचि या खुशी ना रखना आदि लक्षण दिखाई पड़ते हैं. जाहिर है इससे हम भी इन सभी बातों से भी लगभग परिचित ही होते हैं. यदि ये लक्षण थोड़े समय तक दिखाई दें तो ज्यादा परेशान होने की बात नहीं है लेकिन जब यही सारे लक्षण हमारे जीवन में अधिक समय तक रहते हैं तब ये हमें बहुत अधिक प्रभावित करते हैं. ये स्थिति बेहद तनाव से भरी होती है. विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन के अवसाद की परिभाषा के अनुसार दुनिया भर में अवसाद सबसे सामान्य बीमारी है. आपको जानकर हैरानी होगी कि दुनिया भर में लगभग 350 मिलियन लोग घबराहट या इससे संबन्धित अन्य अन्य बीमारियों से प्रभावित हैं. घबराहट एक मानसिक स्वास्थ्य विकार है जो कि कुछ दिनों की समस्या न होकरके एक लम्बी बीमारी है. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से घबराहट के लक्षणों पर एक नजर डालें ताकि इस संबंध में जागरूकता फ़ेल सके.

Anxiety & Insomnia - How To Administer It?

Insomnia or sleeplessness is quite difficult to cope with and for people suffering from anxiety, it is even tougher. People suffering from anxiety remain in a state of mental and physical distress. On top of this, if they cannot sleep well because of insomnia, life becomes quite hard. Insomnia causes anxiety and also is caused due to anxiety.

Here are some simple tips to manage anxiety and insomnia:

  1. Maintain a schedule: Try to go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning. Experiment with several different bedtimes and wake up times to find out which one works best for you.
  2. Turn off electronic devices: Switch off all electronic devices thirty minutes before you go to bed. Electronic devices stimulate your mind and the light from the devices does not make you feel that it is time to sleep. Keep the devices away from you while going to bed.
  3. Dim lights: Practice dimming all lights in your house before bedtime. Change light bulbs and replace them with low wattage lights. This will enable you to have lights, although they are dim. Low lighting will make your body produce melatonin to make you prepare for sleep.
  4. Keep away from alcohol and smoking: Consuming alcoholic drinks before bedtime reduces your quality of sleep and you may wake up within two hours. Do not consume alcohol before bedtime. Smoking should be restricted before sleeping, as the nicotine contained in cigarettes is a stimulant, which can take away your sleep.
  5. Ignore caffeinated drinks: Caffeine is a stimulant and consuming caffeinated drinks before going to bed can result in losing sleep. Do not drink coffee before sleeping.
  6. Exercise: Exercise is a perfect solution to reduce anxiety and results in improved sleep quality. Exercise regularly during the day or three to four hours before bedtime. Yoga and meditation performed just before going to sleep are effective.
  7. Make a pre-sleep ritual: Try to find ways, which would help you calm your mind just before going to sleep and practice it every day. This can be reading a book, taking a hot shower or listening to your favorite songs. Your mind will be relaxed, and you will get better sleep.
  8. Maintain a sleep journal: Keep a sleep journal and write about the time when you go to sleep and when you wake up. Also note down the time you require to fall asleep, the number of times your sleep breaks and how your sleep was. This will enable you to observe your sleep patterns and make adjustments.

For people suffering from anxiety, added insomnia results in enhanced difficulty. One should cope with the problems properly and try to improve upon them.

Social Phobia - How To Combat it?

Social Phobia - How To Combat it?

Anxiety often leads to the development of phobias. An unreasonable fear of being in social situations is known as social anxiety or social phobia. People suffering from such a phobia may be afraid of specific social settings like public speaking or generic social events such as eating with others or using public telephones. They are afraid that they will embarrass themselves or be humiliated in front of others. Being in such a situation can often build up into a panic attack. In many cases, the person himself is aware that his fear is irrational but cannot overcome it. Hence, here are a few tips to overcome social phobia.

  1. Relax: The first thing you need to do is learn to relax. People with phobias often anticipate them and stress themselves out before the situation can present itself. Being anxious heightens sensitivity and worsens your response to a social situation. Hence, before stepping out or meeting someone, take a deep breath and relax. Instead of focusing on the stressful situation, think about something in the future like getting home to a nice cup of tea.
  2. Test yourself: Make a list of the situations that you are afraid of and anticipate the level of anxiety you think it would cause. Then test this hypothesis by putting yourself in the situation. For example, if you fear walking into a crowded room, try doing it once. You may find that you cope with the situation better then you anticipated. Keep a record of these hypothesis and test results.
  3. Practice doing what scares you: Some situations may scare you too much to dive straight into them. In such cases, practice what you would do if you were in such a situation by yourself or with someone you trust. Run the situation in your head and imagine what you would do if it were actually happening.
  4. Look around: Social awkwardness is often caused by imaging that people can read your thoughts and thus focusing on them rather than the people you are talking to or the space you are in. Train your mind to notice things around you and be aware of your situation. Focusing outwards can lower your anxiety and enhance your ability to hold a conversation with people. To make this a habit, whenever you walk into a room make a mental note of three things in the room.
  5. Ask questions: An easy way to shift focus from yourself to people around you is by asking questions. When you someone a question listen to their response and if you still aren't comfortable talking about your own views, ask another related question. This will not give your mind time to dwell on any negative thoughts and can even increase your social circle.
