Neurotransmitters aren’t just “emotion molecules”, they are chemicals that govern all brain and nervous system activity. Our neurons communicate using neurotransmitters. When we think, we’re changing the action potentials of neurons through ion induction, which results in the release of vessicles of neurotransmitters at the synapse, which bind…[Read more]

Yes of course, and I was beaten badly after that.
It happened in my 9th class. I have remembered that it was the last period before the lunch break. Because the teacher was on leave that day, I and my friends were enjoying and passing comment on one another.
One of us was the nephew of our Principal sir. And he was one of those guys who always…[Read more]

Yuval meditates two hours a day.
Then I imagine he reads books (he doesn’t read news, a practice I have followed since 2010) and then he writes.
He writes big, super intelligent books.
He said, “My husband takes care of the marketing. I write the book and then he tells me where to go and I just show up.”
I like that.
There’s a lot of techniq…[Read more]

What do you really want to achieve by doing this?
To seek sympathy? To use him as an outlet for your depression? To hope that in case if he too finds himself in such a situation in his marriage, you two can probably get together again? What exactly is the need to do this, I fail to understand.
If you understand your own motives better and are…[Read more]

Don’t Give Up: I understand how tough it must be for you to deal with it alone. But I can promise you one thing; the pain, suffering, misery, loneliness are all temporary. You can get out of depression and lead a normal and happy life that you have always been dreaming of. It may not be easy…But it is POSSIBLE. So don’t lose hope. Don’t give up…[Read more]

It’s imperative that you find something to do, quickly. You need to fill a bucket with soapy water and grab a few clean towels and start rinsing off your car’s wheels and undercarriage. Spend a good 5 minutes on each rim and tire. Rinse after each one. The anger you feel is driving you through this. You keep running it through your mind. Might as…[Read more]

Revenge can bring Motivation!!!
I was a topper in school but my dreams were very small and somehow, I was over-confident. In my 10th class, I performed way bad compared to the expectations. Ashamed of myself, I couldn’t face any of my friends’ parents for fear of being laughed at. I chose to be house-arrested and never went out for 2 months. But…[Read more]

Stress is a part of life, and you can’t always avoid it. But you can try to avoid situations that can cause it, and you can control how you respond to it.
Peter Goodenough replied to the topic What is basic duty of wife in a happy marriage life? in the forum Marriage Life & Relationships 4 months ago
I am not going to say things like her duty is to cook good food, her duty is to wash her husband’s clothes or her duty is to respect his parents. A man also likes to takes care of his woman like he takes care of his eyes. What I define as the duty of the wife is the duty of the husband also. At times, the wife also has to be pro active and she h…[Read more]

One of the first things I learned in medical school was that I’m not that smart. I’m smart enough to stand out when compared to the general population, but in med school, I’m nothing special. I had to work hard for average grades and scores.
During my first year, this revelation was pretty crushing. My whole ego was set up about being the clever…[Read more]

Whatever you do, you start drifting off into nothingness after a very short amount of time. And when you snap out of it, it makes you more miserable because no work gets completed.
You’re not motivated to do anything, not even reading this answer.

Review your friendships and relationships
Sometimes life takes sharp turns, and when that happens, you have to review your relationships, including family relationships. If they don’t work well in both directions, dump the old friends and relatives, and get new ones.

Whenever you get angry, the first thing you should do is close your eyes and take deep breaths for a while
Peter Goodenough replied to the topic Anger in the forum Anger can be controlled 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Focus on your breathing:It’s a simple idea we’ve been told and read many times – “just breath”. But there is strong evidence that shows our emotions and breathing patterns are closely interconnected.
Peter Goodenough replied to the topic Be calm and do not react in the forum How to deal with stress? 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Not calm and collected, but active and productive. You do what needs to be done and take care of whatever the situation is. I won’t say I’m calm, it’s hard to be calm in an emergency, but I am focused and level-headed, and take charge.
