Sexual Nutrition - How To Ensure It?

Pre-wedding time can be full of extreme emotions such as sadness, happiness, or confusion. Marriage is one of the most important phases in one’s life. Hence, it is essential to be prepared for it in every way so that you can fulfil your marital responsibilities with your partner.

One aspect of a happy married life is sexual health. Pre-wedding time is optimal to start investing in sexual health for pursuing marital responsibilities effectively. For this, you need to maintain a nutritious diet plan that helps in the proper functioning of the reproductive system in your body. This nutritious diet can be maintained with the help of Ayurveda.

In Ayurveda, the balance of the energy levels is important to maintain the healthy functioning of the organs and tissues in the body. The purification of this energy is equally essential. This energy is refined/purified to develop Ojas; representing the self-healing or restorative body capacity.

Since reproductive tissue (Shukra Dhatu) is regarded as a psychological treasure for energy, the purification of this energy assists in proper and healthy functioning of the reproductive system. Healthy Ojas means an ideal balance of mind, body, and spirit.

Medication and Herbs as Sexual Nutrition

Sexual activity is a kind of vigorous exercise. Inactive individuals tend to lose energy quickly during sexual activity. In Ayurveda, there are various herbs that focus on improving one’s energy levels and sexual health.
There are two prominent herb branches in Ayurveda: Vajikarana and Rasayana. Vajikarana herbs mainly work on a regenerative approach that stimulates potency of sexual organs and hormones. Rasayana herbs are revitalizing medicines that have regenerative functions. These herbs help in revitalizing the reproductive system.

  • Withania somnifera or Ashwagandha is a Rasayana herb that revitalizes the antioxidant enzymes in the body. It also helps in balancing the sex hormones. In men, it helps in improving sperm count and sperm motility.
  • Asparagus racemosa or Shatavari is considered as an effective Ayurveda medicine for women. The compounds present in Shatavari improve egg maturation and ovulation in young females. For older women, this herb helps in soothing menopause symptoms and maintaining proper functioning of sexual organs.
  • Tribulus terrestris or Gokhsura herb is a commonly known aphrodisiac. This herb affects the hormone levels and has the capacity to increase luteinizing hormone (a regulating hormone) and androgens such as DHEA, Dihydrotestosterone, and Testosterone. In men, Gokhsura herb improves sexual function.
  • Asphaltum punjabium or Shilajeet is regarded as an exceptional source of approximately eighty-five minerals in ionic forms. In men, this herb helps improve follicle stimulation and testosterone hormone. It also enhances sperm count and motility.

Takeaway

Sexual life is as important as any other dimension of life and one must look after her/his sexual health seriously. In Ayurveda, there are a number of herbs which help in improving the sexual health in both men and women together. Also, Ayurveda helps in maintaining a balanced diet and sleep cycle in one’s lifestyle. These herbs help rejuvenate reproductive tissues and ultimately improve the overall health of an individual.

Why Size Doesn't Matter?

Why Size Doesn't Matter?

Let's face it, for decades and decades, this question has haunted every man's mind, and that is, does she likes girth or length? In either of the two, the end result is a deeply satisfied and happy woman. But again, why and what does a woman prefer? Another question to wonder about is whether or not a woman really thinks about either of these two? Well, it is obvious that a woman will have preferences but how exactly does she prefer a certain thing is what men need to know!

After all, who would want to leave an unsatisfied beau in bed? Believe it or not, but problems in bed can destroy even the happiest of the relationships! For years on end now, men have been trying to get an answer whether they should have an above average length or above average girth. Well, it is time that you guys should come out of your misery and finally get an answer since we have now found out a legit scientific answer to this Holy Grail question. To know the truth, continue reading below and discover the ultimate preference of women in case of girth versus length!

After decades of research and studies related to the sexual psychology of women and a man's health, we have been able to conclude that girth always comes ahead of length. Every 8 women out of 10 would prefer a man with a thicker penis over a man with longer but thinner penis. And guess what? There is a scientific logic behind this answer which has to do with a woman's desire.

As we all know that the vagina of a woman is very shallow in nature, hence, a thicker penis is good for stimulating the clitoris. The vagina is merely 4 inches or lesser in girth, and hence, a penis with thicker girth gives most sexual stimulation to the partner and therefore, a good time! And it is only natural for a woman to seek a man with thicker penis since he will be able to promise her more impact and a good orgasm. This does means, for a fact, that a man might have 10 inches of a penis but if they don't have a thickness of at least, 4.5 inches you are almost invisible to a woman!

But again, the thing is that every man cannot be perfect. Let's face it, as much as having a perfect hourglass figure for a woman is difficult as much as it is difficult for a man to have a penis with perfect thickness and perfect length! The revelation of the long asked question above could either be good news for you or life ending news for others. But the truth is that we don't mean to scare you by this answer especially now when we are living in the age of manipulation and medical advancements!

I am guessing that most of you men must be thinking of pushing hard on your lenses to make it thicker but we all know it, it is just not possible! The best and most successful way is to use organic ayurvedic medicine. Believe it or not, but Ayurvedic medicine is the only way to ensure that you get a thicker penis.

Issues That Can Arise In A Relationship!

Issues That Can Arise In A Relationship!

A close relationship enhances the happiness in our lives. One may feel at some point of time that things are not working well as one would like them to, but with minor tweaks here and there things get back on the regular track. By identifying problems early enough in a relationship, allows us to overcome challenges before the problems take on overwhelming proportions.

  1. Taking one’s partner for granted: With the maturity of relationships, a tendency creeps up to assume that it’s fine to let the normal details of life slip and slide. It becomes very easy to dismiss the people one is closest to because one expects them to be there in all circumstances. One must reflect on what life would be like without one’s partner to avoid this situation.
  2. Constant worry whether partner cares for you: If a person constantly worries about whether partner really cares about him or her, it is counterproductive. It is important to give space to both individuals else the excessive need for affection and reassurance will drive the partner away. After a person and the partner establish commitment to each other, it should not be necessary for one to keep questioning and wondering whether one’s partner honestly cares.
  3. Slippage of boundaries slip around relationship: There are bound to be secrets within a close relationship and letting others into one’s private world erodes partner’s feelings of trust in a relationship. If the partner finds out, he or she will feel betrayed or humiliated.
  4. Complaining about your partner to everyone except him: Sharing one’s unhappiness with anyone who will listen except the partner is counter-productive
  5. Turning on the passive-aggressive switch: One may think it’s safer not to out rightly object to a request or disagree with something one’s partner says but by not letting partner know how one really feels, one is closing a door of communication
  6. Constantly questioning your relationship: Questioning one’s relationship means that one has a doubt that the relationship will last, and therefore may be less likely to feel comfortable about commitments one makes about the future.
  7. Giving up on one’s partner: Everyone goes through challenges of losing a job, health problems, or dealing with an addiction. It’s at those difficult times one’s partner needs a good cheer and support, but those times also make one stressed. One’s confidence and support will help ease a partner’s pain, but maybe just what’s needed to help the partner summon up the resources to overcome the challenge.

Communication Tips To Enhance Your Relationship!

Communication Tips To Enhance Your Relationship!

Marriage or any healthy relationship is a bonding, and not binding. Finding the right person and living happily ever after is only true in fairy tales. In reality, once you find the right partner, maintaining and nurturing the relationship bond itself takes a lifetime and living happily solely depends on HOW you cultivate a relationship with your partner.

Communication is one of the chief ingredients besides trust, understanding, love, care, companionship and empathy in a happy and successful marriage. And failure to communicate is one of the foremost reasons for the failure of relationships. Do you say I love you and appreciate your partner or do you just criticize and complain about him/her all day long? Do you consider his/her ideas and feelings or always turn them down? To communicate effectively is to express yourself freely to your partner, convey your likes and dislikes, convey what turns you on and what doesn’t! Unless and until you are vocal about your thoughts and feelings, how do you expect your partner to understand you? You feel frustrated and upset because things don’t happen your way but have you tried to ‘express’ your way to your partner?

Lack of communication in relationships result in frustrations, misunderstandings, unrealistic expectations, guilt and can create personal differences. It is difficult for people who share their lives with each other to coexist for long without having regular and smooth communication for oiling the machinery of the relationship.

Couples who communicate effectively are not always devoid of arguments. Arguments happen because there is a difference of opinion between the partners; which is a very normal thing. Arguments usually end in a nasty and bitter manner. However, it is up to us to convert that unhealthy argument into a healthy one! Most of us indulge in these arguments to win; not to resolve the matter! What is important is the ‘progress’ in the matter at hand, not the victory.

Remember, not to engage in any serious discussion or disclosure when angry as you tend to lose balance and rational reasoning. The same holds true in a situation where your partner is not “up to it”. Receptivity is of utmost importance. A ‘No’ from a partner does not mean not now, not ever. It simply means I don’t want to do that right now! –feeling free to say no if the request is unappealing at that point in time.

Communication cues that can help improve the quality of the argument:

  1. Remember, there is no blaming game! WHAT is Right is more important than WHO is right.
  2. Use I statements instead of You always statements. Example - I feel angry vs. You always humiliate me. When you use I statements, you’re taking the onus on you.
  3. Attack the issue; not each other!
  4. Refrain from the 4 C’s: Caustic (sarcasm), Compare, Condemn and Criticize.
  5. Avoid mind-reading your partner and assuming things; instead, express yourself verbally.
  6. Using “I feel” statements are better over “You are…” ones. When you say I feel, you’re taking the onus for your feelings and thoughts and avoiding direct blame on your partner.
  7. Have an open mind. Be proactive and open to changes, alternatives and work effectively for resolving a conflict.
  8. Stay away from Stereotyping (generalizing - all men are like that…) & ‘Gunnysacking’ (nursing past grievances and bringing them up for review while trying to resolve a present conflict).
  9. No engaging in ‘Summarizing self-syndrome’ where both partners continue to restate his/her stance and issues without actually listening to others and without understanding other’s perspective, feeling frustrated.
  10. Cut back on ‘Catastrophizing’ i.e. dwelling on the worst possible outcomes of a problem or risk that you face, to the point that even remote, unlikely disasters preoccupy your attention. Often, objectivity becomes clouded, and you may gradually begin to feel or act as though these unlikely events are really going to happen.
  11. Do not send ‘double messages’- statements that have two conflicting meanings. Keep it as simple and assertive as possible.

A mind is like a parachute, it doesn’t work unless it’s open. So have a broad perspective, try to understand your partner’s perspective and try and arrive at a mutually agreeable decision that caters to wellbeing as a whole. Matrimony is the high sea for which no compass has yet been invented. What counts in making a happy marriage is not how much compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility. Marriage was, is and never will be perfect, Yet it is the happiest wrong we are doing on earth!

Happiness - Know More!

Happiness is the opposite of inappropriate, miserable, incomplete and absolutely helpless.
If you are not happy, examine yourself, where are you inappropriate, miserable, incomplete and absolutely helpless.
If not any of these, then you are already happy and you don't know it.
More importantly, you don't want to be happy at all. You just want something else.

Does Living Alone Increase Mental Health Risk?

Does Living Alone Increase Mental Health Risk?

 

People had always known that there is a direct link between psychological ailments and living alone. The loneliness caused by having to live by yourself can trigger a myriad different psychological issue. Now, several studies worldwide have established the link. People of all genders and across the age spectrum were studied over a long period. The results made it clear that it does not matter how young or elderly you are and people of any age can be affected by loneliness. Your sex too is not a factor. Common Mental Disorders are twice as much likely to affect you if you live alone than if you live with others.

These Studies widened their Scope

All along studies to find the link between loneliness and mental ailment were carried out only on senior citizens. Then scientists realized that the results were not conclusive. Several factors made them widen their net – changing patterns in lifestyle, job requirements and rising rates of diagnosis of psychological ailments among people of all age groups made them reconsider their range and scope of their tests.

Now studies were carried out on people irrespective of their sex or gender. Another conclusion scientists drew from their studies were young and unmarried people were again more likely to contract mental ailments than their counterparts who are either married or live with their partners. Similarly, people in the middle age group, who live alone, fare much worse than their counterparts who live with families. Men and women were equally vulnerable to loneliness induced psychological problems.

Mental Illnesses that Living Alone could Trigger

The studies found that people who live on their own are likely to contract these ailments –

Depression

A World Health Organization study discovered that 300 million people around the world suffer depression in various degrees. Women living alone have greater chances of coming down with it than men.

Some of its symptoms are –

• Malaise

• Loss of interest in everything that is happening around

• Finding no purpose in living

• Disrupted sleep patterns

Loss of appetite

Depression can be lethal. If you are living alone or if your loved ones do, then watch out for these symptoms and seek therapy immediately.

• Social Anxiety

People who live alone usually exhibit signs of some sort of anxiety or another. They are averse to mingling with others. The constant sense of dread, a fear of uncertainty and an overwhelming feeling of being out-of-tune with life around them make them lose faith in themselves. This may interfere with their daily activities. It could also prompt a panic attack, social anxiety disorders or certain phobias.

• Substance Abuse

These studies also discovered that if you have people around you whose love and positivity uplift you, or if there is stability in your life, you are unlikely to turn to alcoholism or drugs. Living alone makes people unhappy. Drugs initiate the dopamine secretion, a hormone that induces a feeling of happiness. When dopamine flows through your system, it vanquishes feelings of loneliness and pain. But this is a temporary release and the feeling of bliss abates as soon as the drugs are flushed out of our bodies. That is why they will take the drugs repeatedly and eventually this becomes an addiction.

• Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder OCD is not very common but it is the fallout of living alone. This actually goes on in circles. Loneliness triggers OCD and those with this condition are given a wide berth by people which magnifies their loneliness and makes their psychological condition even worse.

Living alone is a terrible psychological health hazard. Most often, it can have a disastrous impact on anyone’s psyche. So think it through before you make your decision of being on your own.

Loneliness - How To Avert It?

Loneliness - How To Avert It?

There are many reasons as to why a person may feel lonely. Loneliness is different from being alone as one can feel lonely even when surrounded by people. This is a complex emotional and mental phenomenon that everyone experiences at some point of time in their lives.

 Here are a few tips to help you cope with loneliness.

  1. Recognize that it is only a feeling: Loneliness is not a fact that you are isolated or have no one on your side. This is only a feeling and will pass like every other feeling. Accepting this can keep you from overreacting and blowing the issue out of proportion.
  2. Reach out: Feeling lonely can make a person withdraw into himself or herself. This does not help. Instead, you must reach out to someone. Remember, no one can read your mind and unless you speak up, nobody will be able to help you.
  3. Join a group: Group activities are great when you are feeling lonely. This can make you feel involved with other people without putting you in the spotlight. Group activities could take the form of a gym class, art class, meditation etc.
  4. Focus on the needs of others: Thinking about other people will give you less mental space to dwell on your own loneliness. Smiling at other people and wishing them well can help lessen your own mental burden.
  5. Find good friends: People who feel lonely find it hard to open up to people but it is essential to find people who you share something in common with. Be honest and frank with your friends.
  6. Be persistent: It can take time to find people you get along with. It is important not to give up during this process and to persevere in finding people and groups where you can fit in.
  7. Keep yourself busy: The less time you have to think about your loneliness, the less you will feel lonely. Find a new hobby that keeps you busy. This could be something you do by yourself like gardening or a group activity such as choir singing or yoga.
  8. Exercise: Exercise is good not only for your physical health but also for your mental health. Start your morning with a run or yoga to feel energized. Exercising can also be a way of meeting new people.
  9. Get a pet: Pets are great ways to combat loneliness. A pet dog or a cat will give you unconditional love without expecting anything in return as long as you care for him or her.
  10. Eat right: Unhealthy food habits could also contribute to loneliness. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to boost your immune system and amp up the production of happy hormones.

Tend To Your Happiness!

Tend To Your Happiness!

Many of us wish for more happiness.

We want to lead happier, more fulfilling, lives, but the sad truth is that so many of us that wish for more happiness spend much more time tending the happiness of others than we do for ourselves. Happiness needs tender loving care and positive self-talk. It starts with you. Do not depend on external factors for your happiness. Look within and try to be happy just be yourself. 

Happiness does not simply happen. A person does not suddenly stumble across happiness. Happiness is the result of careful tending and a person who wishes to be happy must tend to their own happiness. 

Tending to your happiness does not need to be difficult, complex, or time-consuming. It can be as simple as this four-step formula:

1. Trash your unhappy thoughts and trends. 
2. Envision yourself happy.
3. Needs fulfilled.
4. Desires fulfilled.

Making yourself a happier person really can be that simple.

Step one is an important one because unhappiness is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Many people are unhappy because they don't believe they deserve to be happy and they lock themselves into patterns of behavior that make them unhappy. You must trash your unhappy thoughts and trends (Eg. put your negative thoughts on pieces of paper and crumble or burn them). You may also replace negative thoughts with more positive ones with practice.

Look inside yourself and find out what (and when) you think about things that make you unhappy. Is there a specific time of day that you tend to be more unhappy? Is there a specific task or routine that seems to feed your unhappiness? Is there something that you do or think that contributes to your own unhappiness?

Once you identify the areas of your life that cause you unhappiness you can find ways to confront it and combat it. Sometimes you can make a change to avoid the trouble spot altogether, but when that's not possible find ways to make it less difficult on yourself.

Adjust your schedule or your expectations if that will make things better. Recruit help when you can. Just easing off one task or freeing up a few hours can make a huge difference in your attitude. When all else fails and you can't change or share something unpleasant than don't hesitate to give yourself a reward for accomplishing it. Knowing you will be rewarded can sometimes make difficult tasks more palatable.

Step two is key. Some people have been unhappy for so long they have forgotten what happiness looks like and feels like. Envisioning yourself happy can help create happiness habit. Thinking about your own happiness will also help counterbalance times when you are unhappy or working through unpleasant tasks. Think about difficult times as simply stepping stones to happy times. Visualizing smiling creates a Facial Feedback which will eventually reflect on your mood.

Step three cannot be overlooked. If your basic needs for food and sleep are not met then you will not be able to focus on happiness. Obviously, it is not impossible for hungry, sleep-deprived people to be happy, but most humans are a lot less likely to be happy in that state. Food and sleep provide fuel for both body and mind and the healthier your body and mind then the better chance you have to achieve happiness.

Step four is the final step to achieving happiness. What do you desire? What do you wish for? What do you dream about? Allow yourself to dream big but don't overlook small wishes and desires. While a two-week cruise might be great just having a weekend at a local resort might really give the rest, relaxation and escape you might need.

Or perhaps you'd really like to lose 30 or 50 pounds. By finding a way to work in some exercise a few times a week might give you more immediate gratification while eventually accomplishing your long-term goal.

Make a list of your desires, wishes, and dreams -- big and small -- and keep that list someplace handy. What can you do this week to achieve a small goal?

What can you do this month to take a step toward a big goal? Sometimes you don't even need to accomplish your goals to achieve happiness. Sometimes it is simple enough to know that you are working toward your dreams.

Often happiness is found on the path to our dreams. Often happiness is created while we strive to make our wishes come true.

You can make yourself a happier person but you must tend to your happiness.

So often we spend more time tending to our outer possessions than we do tending to our inner ones. You can make a few changes to your life to find a better balance and that will help create more personal happiness for you.
