To conceive is to become pregnant or to come up with an idea. Both imply planting a seed for something, either a baby or a thought.
Latin roots for conceive (by way of French) point to “take into” either “the womb” or “the mind.” An idea is sometimes called “a seed” or “the seed of an idea,” and conceive means to produce something from inside the mind.
The thing we can’t have is the thing we crave the most. This aphorism is never more true than when it comes to having children. Alarming new research, showing that a woman’s fertility begins to decline at age of 27 — rather than 35 as had long been believed — has brought new urgency to the debate as to ‘right’ age to have a baby. …
Eating disorders are the number one killer of all mental illness, a shocking fact that remains unrecognised by society at large.
Environmental, social, biological, and psychological factors all contribute to eating-disorder risk. Early childhood environment and parenting may have a substantial impact. Many sufferers report dysfunctional family histories, with parents who were either emotionally absent or overly involved in their upbringing. As a result, these children may not tolerate stress well, they may have low self-esteem, and they may have difficulty in interpersonal relationships. Children who have been abused either physically, sexually, or psychologically are also highly vulnerable to eating disorders, particularly bulimia. …
The name ‘Sai Baba’ is a combination of Persian and Indian origin; Sāī (Sa’ih) is the Persian term for “holy one” or “saint”, usually attributed to Islamic ascetics, whereas Bābā is a word, meaning “father” used in Indian languages.
The appellative thus refers to SaiBaba as being a “holy father” or “saintly father”. His parentage, birth details, and life before the age of sixteen are obscure, which has led to a variety of speculations and theories attempting to explain the SaiBaba’s origins.
ABSTRACT Social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) offers the opportunity to both enact and respond to public performances of self, as well as to follow and interact with actual public figures.
The main question which have no answer, has risen— why we follow someone / like someones post’s on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Is there any psychological pattern between our brains, which sometimes might be a only reason for misunderstanding between people.
But at the same time, when we talk about Social media, websites like Facebook, Twitter… we choose these platforms to interact with others — people we know or people we don’t know or to make new…
(A woman’s hormonal system is sensitive, so any slight change in hormone levels that lasts for an extended period of time can wreak noticeable effects on the body.)
How to Get the Right Kind of Emotional Support.
Being “supportive” means different things to different people.
The topic ‘lend a helping hand’ and research has showed that one of the fastest ways to be happier and more content is to help others.
How awesome is that?
Think about the last time you were stressed, stuck and needed help, only to have someone reach out and offer it to you. How good did that feel? And I bet it felt just as wonderful for the person offering their help. In fact, I can guarantee it.
As you got to know your spouse, you began to see something inside him or her that set him apart from all others. It’s one of the reasons you fell in love and decided to get married. That special something — that spark and charm — should be enough reasons to believe that your spouse can fulfill career goals just as he or she has accomplished personal goals (like marrying you). Tell your spouse you believe in him or her but also prove it. Keep track of his or her career and applaud at the appropriate moments. When things are not going so well, you can provide encouragement for your spouse by offering a pep talk — “You are great at what you do and things will get better because you’re great at what you do and I love you no matter what happens.” You can also help your spouse get his or her mind off work on days off by doing something fun together. Now is a great time to head to a theme park, take in a movie, or go dancing. …
Childhood abuse may be the most common cause of PTSD in women, 10% of whom suffer from PTSD (compared to 5% for men) at some time in their lives, but many other types of psychological trauma can cause the disorder — car accidents, military combat, rape and assault. Symptoms of PTSD include intrusive memories, nightmares, flashbacks, increased vigilance, social impairment and problems with memory and concentration.
It’s Not Just Psychological,
While such symptoms are commonly understood to be psychological problems, some or all of them may well be related to the physical effects of extreme stress on the brain.
Recent studies have shown that victims of childhood abuse and combat veterans actually experience physical changes to the ‘hippocampus’, a part of the brain involved in learning and memory, as well as in the handling of stress. …
Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand. It can be caused by both good and bad experiences. When people feel stressed by something going on around them, their bodies react by releasing chemicals into the blood. These chemicals give people more energy and strength, which can be a good thing if their stress is caused by physical danger. But this can also be a bad thing, if their stress is in response to something emotional and there is no outlet for this extra energy and strength. …
Writing often it is the only thing between you and impossibility.
no drink, no woman’s love, no wealth can match it.
nothing can save you except writing.
it keeps the walls from failing.
the hordes from closing in. it blasts the darkness.
writing is the ultimate psychiatrist, the kindliest god of all the gods.
writing stalks death.
it knows no quit.
and writing laughs at itself, at pain.
it is the last expectation, the last explanation. that’s what it is.
