The Sleeping Council

anonymous asked:

I'e seen a thing where it's Anakin getting magically pregnant with no sex and Obi-Wan being the person walking around ready to murder. It's everything I want in life and more. It also had "The child was found out to be biologically Obi-Wan's and the council is giving him side-eyes" I love these type of things.

Yeah, I’ve seen a thing like that before as well, and yeah, it’s a really good idea (okay so can I blame 13 years of Christian education for a fascination of immaculate conception or nah?)

And TBH the Council is probably side-eying Obi Wan even BEFORE they find out the child is genetically his because they’re not blind if anyone is getting Anakin pregnant Obi Wan would be pretty high on the list.

Until Obi Wan finds out that apparently the child is somehow genetically his he’s so SO angry (and also slightly self-hating because he should have done a better job of guiding Anakin if it was consensual; protecting him if it wasn’t). When the news that the child is apparently his reaches him he’s just confused, because it isn’t his. He finally starts coming around to Anakin’s constant position of “don’t know how it happened but if wasn’t because I was sleeping with someone” and suddenly information starts clicking in his head and he figures out what is probably the actual reason for the pregnancy.

How to Cope with Mood Swings

1. Make sure you get enough sleep. A recent study by the U.S. Mental Health Association and the Better Sleep Council identified a relationship between positive moods and sleeping between 6 and 8 hours a night. Regular bedtimes were also important.

2. Keep your bedroom as dark as possible as this stimulates production of melatonin. (Low melatonin levels are linked with depression.)

3. Make sure you have a diet that supports brain health. For example, the following nutrients have been shown to promote more stable moods: B-complex vitamins, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, zinc and fatty acids. Also, rapid changes in blood sugar can also precipitate changes in mood, so watch your consumption of refined sugar products, and make sure you eat lots of complex carbohydrates.

4. Try some natural remedies. Chamomile, lemon balm or valerian root tea are recommended for helping with anxiety. St. John’s wort is said to soothe the mind and relieve irritability. In terms of homeopathic remedies, lycopodium is believed to help with anger, and feelings of agitation; tarentula hispanica is used for mania; and chaste berry, red raspberry, black cohosh and sarsaparilla may help with female hormonal mood swings.

5. Include some regular exercise in your daily schedules. This releases endorphins, the feel good hormones. It also helps with insomnia.

6. Try and identify coping mechanisms that can ward off or soothe fluctuations in mood. Also, keeping a journal of negative triggers can help you interrupt a pattern early on, and work on strategies for coping with these triggers.
