Menopause Moodswings - some nutritional information on how to relieve them.
Being Assertive is
Being able to voice your opinion and stand up for yourself when need be sends off signals to manipulative people (interfering relatives, workplace bullies, pushy sales people) that you won’t be coerced into anything.
There’s a cliche that assertive people are belligerent and opinionated, yelling when angry and totally unapproachable. But that’s not what assertiveness really is. Those people are just plain rude!
If you look up the word “insomnia” in a dictionary, you’ll see it defined as the inability to sleep. In a basic sense, that’s what it is. But that’s just a small part of the story.
People with insomnia generally have problems getting to sleep and/or staying asleep. If you suffer from insomnia, chances are you regularly experience one or more of the following:
- You find it hard to get to sleep at night
- You wake up during the night
- You wake up early and can’t get back to sleep
- You feel tired after waking up
- You feel worn-out, irritable and have trouble concentrating during the day
- You find it difficult to nap in the daytime even though you are tired
Can “Emotional Baggage” Cause Physical Pain?
Sandy had chronic knee pain. Whether she was walking, sitting or resting in bed, her knee continually hurt. Three different specialists had treated her knee, but nothing helped.

As well as the obvious 'basic needs' for water, food and shelter, humans have a set of basic needs which are not so obvious, but just as essential to emotional wellbeing.
When these needs go unmet for too long, we can suffer anxiety, depression, addiction, or some other emotional problem. And because this develops over time, it can be easily overlooked, leaving us confused about why we've got this problem.
To make matters worse, many people aren't always aware they have these needs or how they affect their well being, so here's our 'troubleshooting checklist' of the 9 Primal Human Needs. Knowing them and ensuring you meet them healthily, at least most of the time, will transform your life.
What Role does the Brain Play in ED?
In a sense, erections begin in the brain. ED can also be caused by:

- feelings of shame about sex
- the circumstances of a particular encounter
- a lack of intimacy with a partner
- stressors that have nothing to do with sex at all
