By telling yourself you’re well rested, you can bypass the negative effects of poor quality sleep. This is the effect of placebo sleep, sleep that you didn’t really have but believe you did. By doing this whenever you have late nights or are unable to sleep well, you can maintain your A-game the next day by drawing energy from placebo sleep.
Mindfulness meditation involves becoming aware of your body, breath, and thoughts. It does not aim to change you or your situation, but to make you notice every detail non-judgmentally. It helps you experience life in mundane routines. Mindless meditation while walking through a busy street, taking a break at work, lighting a candle, and eating a simple meal will help you find new meaning.
Some people never have orgasms, some have them more often than they’d like to, while others have painful orgasms.

Disrupted nerve signals, abnormalities in the pelvic muscles, and imbalanced hormones play a huge part in the type, intensity, and frequency of your orgasms. Mental stress too has an impact.

About 65% of our dreams are sad or stirring. But they’re not completely random. Our lifestyle can determine the nature of our dreams.

It is a common misconception that vaginal thrush is a bacterial infection when it is actually a fungal infection. It is not sexually transmitted and is common in pregnant women.
