Not Enjoying Life

I think there are some vital facets which can help people begin to truly take pleasure in life once again, and take advantage of the opportunities on this world. You might really feel good if you wear a lovely dress and come to be the focus of the group. In this article I intend to look at just what I think those facets are and also exactly how you could integrate them into your life.

1. Familiarize your Mortality

It’s no secret that day we are all visiting pass away. A few of you might assume we will certainly be reincarnated, some could believe we will visit heaven and also a few of you believe we are souls in human kind, which’s fine. Nonetheless, everyone understand that our current form will not last forever.Make one of the most of the chance you have; life is totally what you make from it as well as is absolutely nothing greater than an outside reflection of your inner ideas. If you begin trying to find the excellent worldwide as opposed to concentrating on the bad, I guarantee you will discover it.2.

Make Notes of the important things that Issue to You

I made use of to be the kind of person that would check out a post which asked you to do something, and also kindly skip over the ‘doing something about it’ part. A lot more lately, I actually took the time to write out a listing of belongings I’m grateful for; some of the obvious products came up:

* My family and friends

* My health

* Having the ability to consume correctly daily

* Having a roofing over my head

* Having people that care for me

And while these things are obvious, we take them for provided but miss them a lot for example when they weaken (health) or go away (wide range). Just doing this will certainly allow you to see all the excellent points in your life as opposed to all the unfavorable aspects in your current situation which could be acquiring you down.3.

Understand Every Issue Can Be Accepted or Dealt With

“But I don’t want to accept the things I could not transform” is a feedback I got from a lot of individuals when first stating this idea. “OK, so you are going to get angry, cry and also anxiety yourself out about something that … you can not do anything regarding?” – It simply does not make any sort of feeling. If you could transform something you do not like then of course function to doing that, however or else approve exactly what is and concentrate on various other belongings that matter to you.4.

Set Yourself a Lasting Target You Can Be Passionate Concerning

Possibly you would like to reduce weight; perhaps you want to discover a new language and even learn how to play a tool. Pick a long-term objective that you can give some time routinely, something that really matters to you. One of the most crucial aspect to making this operate in your favor is by opening your life as much as being able to work with the many things you delight in. After-all, this is a target you INTEND TO accomplish and also it is something you really APPRECIATE.

This is one of the best experiences of my life. I love animals so much, seeing this made me so happy To use this video in a commercial player or in a broadca. . .

A Good Diet Plan

Diet plans are basically a superabundant. Too many individuals begin by mapping all the information such as the food they consume, when and also where they’ll consume as well as exactly how it will work with their fitness program. The issues start to come when they are currently 2 or even more weeks into the program. Diet strategies should be consistent and also flexible, considering that every person is various as well as the means your body responds will also transform depending on your way of living as well as genetic makeups.

1. There’s no universal diet strategy. There are currently numerous diet regimen strategies readily available today on the net, in publications and at your regional health club. The truth is, no solitary diet will certainly function marvels for everybody. Every person is different so a particular diet regimen that helps a person slim down quite promptly could not affect you the same way. Know a lot more concerning the various physique: ectomorph, endomorph and mesomorph, to know how each diet plan will certainly help each kind. Do not promptly attempt a program just considering that it’s preferred or you’ve heard a lot of excellent impacts from other people. Find out more concerning the principles and concepts, view if it works for your schedule and also capacities, after that talk with those who have really tried the technique.2.

Make it a lifestyle. Many individuals make the error of attempting diet plan strategies with the intent to lose fatty tissue and weight in 1 to 3 months. Crash diet have come to be preferred because of these quick as well as simple promises. However, there are wellness risks connected with yo-yo diet programs and crash diet. Some individuals likewise tend to shed the weight quickly simply to gain it back as well as a lot more a few months later. Diet plans need to be integrated right into your normal regimen. You need to prepare for the long-term and make the change a way of life, as opposed to a faster way.

3. Be sensible. How much do you weigh now? Just how old are you? Are you literally current in the past? Does your job enable you to exercise and diet regimen regularly on a daily basis? For how long do you anticipate to obtain lean as well as match? These are just some of the concerns to ask on your own just before trying diet regimen strategies. Constantly be realistic when setting targets or you’ll only give up midway. If you’re obese or overweight, it will certainly take longer for the fat to come off. Also try diet strategies that include foods that you can consume as well as endure for the long term. It is not smart to all of a sudden go vegetarian if you’ve always had meat in your diet. Adjustments must be progressive and set for several years ahead.4.

Keep a journal. A diary or log publication will be an excellent method to keep track of your progress. You can write down the real meals things you eaten for the day as well as show the overall number of calories, as well as the grams of healthy protein, carbohydrates and fat. You could after that establish new goals and also view if you’ve successfully minimized the calories needed to slim down. Additionally jot down recommendations on points you want to improve on in the weeks ahead.5.

Award yourself. Although you could embark on diet plan plans for the lasting, it is similarly vital to compensate on your own from time to time. Have rip off days or rip off dishes where you can treat yourself to a preferred meals item or two like pizza, ice cream or fried poultry. It’s extremely healthy to do this every now and then to psychologically focus and keep your physical body from adapting from the lower calorie intake.

Emotional Mental Illness

I think therefore I am” Renee Descartes (1640)

It is a beautiful summers day and you are walking in the countryside. In a clearing to your right you see a cherry tree, the red fruit peeping from under the lush green foliage. You walk up to it. You touch it, feeling the rough bark under your fingertips. You can hear the breeze rustling the leaves, and smell the odour of the fruit. You take a cherry and pop it in your mouth, savouring the sweet juice as it floods over your tongue.

But does the cherry tree exist? You can see it, hear it, feel it, smell and taste it’s fruit but this is not enough. You may be hallucinating, or asleep and having a particularly vivid dream. How would you know?

You wouldn’t. All our experience of the world and reality” is governed by our five senses (I leave aside any discussion of a sixth sense”). These senses are our only connection with the world outside our selves. A blind person has no visual contact with the outside world; somebody with a severe cold has little taste or olfactory contact with the outside world. And these senses are basically biochemical machines designed to send information to our brain. For example, the eyes collect and focus reflected light onto the retina (at the back of the eye). Receptors in the retina convert this light into electrical impulses (this electricity is produced by chemicals in the receptors). These electrical impulses are then fired along a network of nerve cells to the brain. The brain, another very complex mass of interconnected nerve cells, analyses these impulses their strength, their rate, their pattern and frequency and generates an internal picture based upon them. It is this brain-generated picture that we see”. It is a similar case with the sensation of touch. Receptors in our skin are stimulated by physical contact and produce electrical impulses that are sent to the brain what we feel” is the result of the brain’s analysis of these impulses. And so on for taste, smell and hearing.

So the tree that we saw, felt, heard, smelled and tasted is not actually out there” in the world it is in our brains. More accurately, it is the brains image or impression of the tree constructed from the impulses it receives from our senses. Whenever our brain received this particular pattern of impulses from the senses, it would construct an image of a tree colour, shape, smell, taste, touch and sound whether or not a tree was actually there.

There is little controversy in stating that our brains can be deceived. We can block the path of the electrical impulses as they pass from the sense receptors to the brain this is the case with local anaesthesia, where a patient can watch as his appendix is removed without pain. Or we can interfere directly with the brains analysis of the sense impulses a drunken person is aware that he has fallen over, but it doesn’t hurt (until the next day!). And we don’t need alcohol or drugs for this deception to occur at any point, most of us have believed, albeit briefly, that we’ve seen or heard or felt something that has turned out to not be there.

It was this sort of reasoning that led Descartes to question the very existence of a world outside our selves. In light of modern science, Descartes is questioning the existence of a world outside our brains (our bodily sensations such as feeling hungry or having an aching leg are also mediated by our senses). In these terms, our own bodies are considered as part of the outside world. If all we see, hear, touch, feel and taste in the outside world is but a representation in our brains, and this representation is based on information from our senses, and these senses can be deceived, then we can never be sure that the outside world exists. Descartes talked of the possibility of us being hypnotised by a demon who is tricking us into believing we are moving around in a world with trees, houses, other people etc when in fact we’re locked in a dungeon somewhere. The film The Matrix” provides a technological alternative.

So we cannot know if the outside world exists it could all be in our brains. But in that case can we know that anything exists? Thankfully, yes. We can be sure our thoughts exist. How? Because we think them. There seems no way that we can be deceived about our thoughts existing in the very act of having a thought, that thought exists. The thoughts may be based on deceptive information from the senses, but they are still real, they still exist. It is difficult to conceive of deceiving someone into believing they have thoughts when, in fact, they don’t. You need to have thoughts to be deceived.

So we can safely say that our thoughts definitely exist! Descartes moved on from this rock of certainty” and went on to prove” the existence of the outside world. Unfortunately, this further proof” is highly suspect and relies on the notion of a beneficent and all-powerful God but then Descartes was writing on behalf of the Catholic Church! Most modern philosophers discount this extension of his theory, but they do still accept his earlier reasoning – I think therefore I am” has stood the test of time. If we are being pedantic, Descartes quote is better rendered as There are thoughts” just because I experience thoughts doesn’t mean they are mine! But this is not as memorable as the original.

So what has all this got to do with mental health? Well, if the outside world doesn’t exist as such and all we have is thoughts, then (potentially) the world is what we think it to be. I’m not saying we can change things dramatically. It would take a lot of effort to create” a thought-world where trees can talk and people fly by flapping their arms for this to be real” one would have to interact constantly and consistently with trees and people as though they could do these things. Rather, I am talking about how our thoughts and feelings can colour” our experience of the outside world (I am using the terms thoughts” and emotional feelings” interchangeably here). Depressed people (i.e. people with depressed or depressing thoughts!) experience the world differently to others. They see colours less vividly, food can seem tasteless and unpleasant, and harmless everyday situations can appear threatening. They predict bad consequences from actions and events where others see only benefit. A depressed persons world is very different to a happy person’s, but to an observer they will seem one and the same.

A person with depressive thoughts who is looking to get better” has three courses of action open to him.

Firstly, he can accept the medical model” of mental illness and depression. This model sees the brain (rightly) as a complex neurochemical structure, and postulates that depression and other psychological illnesses are due to defects or malfunctioning in this system. The brain, when examined anatomically, consists of millions of various cells, each of which is in turn composed of smaller structures. When these structures are examined in turn, they are found to consist of chemicals (as does all physical matter). The medical model thus presumes that it is a defect or malfunctioning of these chemicals that adversely affect the brains cells, leading in turn to the malfunctioning of the brain and finally a malfunctioning” of thinking depression or whatever.

On this model, the course of action is clear correct the malfunctioning of the brain. This is done using drugs that enter the brain and interfere with the cells chemical structure and functioning. This all makes perfect sense. Unfortunately, there is a vast gulf between the theory and the practise. Medical science just does not know enough about the brain at present. There are numerous different cell types, numerous different chemicals in and around these cells, and numerous different interactions and connections between each cell and the others. No test has been developed that shows which chemicals/cells/connections are malfunctioning. The best that the scientists can do is make an educated guess as to those chemicals/cells/connections seem likely to be defective, and choose drugs that act on these. The initial guesses (based on drugs that were found in the 1950’s – by accident!) are still the main focus of research today. The result is predictable a large number of different drugs that work seem to work sometimes and not at others and have side effects (because they are also affecting perfectly healthy cells). This is likely to remain the case for the foreseeable future.

A second course of action for the depressed person is to change the outside world i.e. their circumstances. This makes perfectly good sense. If you are feeling depressed because you hate your job or your relationship, then change it. If you feel depressed because you’re overweight, then diet. Of course, this is rather flippant. If it were that easy to do, people would just do it. And it must be acknowledged that depression often saps the will and motivation to change just these sorts of situations. Further, many situations cannot be changed by our own actions the loss of a loved one, poverty, ill health, war, famine etc. The outside world can be very resistant to change.

The third course of action takes a leaf out of Descartes book. We are what we think a depressed person is no more and no less than someone with depressed thoughts. If they stopped having depressed thoughts, then the depression disappears. It is possible for people to be happy, or at least content, even in the direst of circumstances. Most of us have known people face up to unpleasant and distressing events with resilience and even cheerfulness. We say they are naturally happy” or are positive people.” One can also say that they think happy thoughts” or think positive thoughts.”

Perhaps they were born like that. Or perhaps they learnt to think like that as they grew up (I believe this is more likely). Either way, though, they enjoy life a lot more than many of us. But this needn’t be the case if we can learn to think a little more like them, learn to think in a more pleasant, positive way. It seems unlikely that depressed people are born like that”, just as it is unlikely that happy people are born like that.” Even the wackiest psychiatrist will hesitate to diagnose a baby as depressed! Young babies cannot think as we do and they cannot have depressed thoughts. As they grow, their thinking abilities develop under the influence of their parents, siblings and peers. Patterns of thought are developed, ways of thinking, with each person having their own particular patterns, unique to them. By the time adulthood is reached, these patterns are likely to be ingrained” in us, to the point where we’re not even aware of them we automatically process situations, events, and interactions with others in terms of these thought patterns. The thoughts we actually think (and are aware of) are the results of this processing. Therefore, if this processing is set wrong” (e.g. if it constantly produces thoughts that are depressive), then psychological problems are likely to follow.

This is the basic theory on which are based the cognitive therapies for psychological problems. With the prompting and guidance of the therapist, an individual is taught to examine his or her thinking patterns, searching for maladaptive and detrhymental ways of thinking. This is not an easy task the patterns are usually automatic” (like a habit) and the individual is likely to be unaware of them initially. An important task for the therapist is to elucidate these faulty” patterns. These can then made explicit to the individual, and the first steps taken towards challenging these ways of thinking. The aim of the cognitive therapies is to minimise or remove entirely the identified faulty patterns, and for the individual to learn more adaptive and helpful ways of thinking in their place. A successful therapy can change a persons life forever when a person no longer automatically thinks depressive thoughts, they are insulated and protected from becoming depressed in the future.

What Is Health Policy

It was revealed that the cost of life insurance has dropped dramatically in recent years. How do you know what kind of policy is best for you?

Term policies are the cheapest and simplest type of life indemnity – you pay a premium every month for an agreed amount of indemnity cover for a fixed term i.e. the number of years that the policy will run for. When you die, it then pays out a lump sum. When the policy reaches the end of its term and you are still alive, no money is paid out.

There are several types of term insurance: “level” term where the payout is a fixed amount; “decreasing” term, which is often slightly cheaper because the sum to be paid out lessens yr on year. In most cases this type of indemnity is taken out to cover a mortgage. There is also ‘increasing’ term insurance, where the amount payable increases slightly during the course of the term; this might be a good way of protecting your cover against inflation.

Joint life cover pays is useful for couples whoever want both of their incomes to pay the mortgage because a payout is produced if either partner dies. The most economical form may be pension term assurance.

Family income benefit offers the policyholder’s beneficiaries a regular income from the date of death until the end of the policy term rather than paying out one lump sum.

How much cover you need will depend on your own individual circumstances. Most large and medium-sized companies offer a death in service benefit which normally pays out three or four times you are your annual income to your partner whenever you die though being employed. Hence if you are reasonably confident about remaining in employment, you may reach the conclusion that paying for additional life cover with a separate policy is unnecessary.

The cost of a life insurance policy depends on a number of factors, namely the length of the policy’s term, the type of policy and certain medical criteria – whether you are obese or whether you smoke, for example. Insurers are clamping down on obesity in particular.

As an indication, a fit 34-year-old man needing two hundred thousand pounds worth of cover over a 25 yr term can get it for thirteen pounds and thirty six pence a month through Norwich Union. For a 44-year-old smoker, however, the premium increases to a minimum of $55 a month for exactly the same stage of cover.

If you are paying more than this, you are of course, free to change at any time. It pays to workshop around.

There are serious advantages to switching to pension term sureness. When you already have a term insurance policy which pays out a lump sum, you can save a considerable amount on your premiums by changing to pension term.

The reason for this is since under new pension laws announced in April, most individuals qualify for tax relief on the money they pay for life insurance whenever they opt for a pension term assurance (PTA) policy. PTA is basically the same as term insurance in so far as it is still protection-only. So it pays out when you die in the term but if you survive, no payout is given.

Not everyone stands to benefit from switching to PTA, however. For instance, whenever you purchased your standard policy a long time ago, the higher premiums that you may now have to pay owing to the increase in your age could well outweigh the benefit of tax relief. Similarly, if your health has worsened since you took out your policy, you’ll tenably be more beneficial off keeping your term insurance.

Likewise, souls whoever want a family income benefit policy (which provides regular payments) wouldn’t hope to switch because PTA only provides a lump-sum payout.

The grocery store can be a pretyy hazardous place when you’re trying to stick with a healthy diet. It offers both the healthy foods you need as well as the opportunity to buy most types of unhealthy foods.

Today we’ll go over any of the basic rules for shopping for healthy foods. You probably know any of them, so think of this as a reminder to follow the rules for them to work.

Never shop on an empty stomach. This is the best way to make certain that you will buy things you do not need. It is much easier to give in to temptation if you’re hungry.

Read the labels on canned goods. As an example, you need to one should buy canned fruits that are packed in juice or lite syrup when juice is not available, not heavy syrup. You need tuna packed in water.

Look for the words hydrogenated”or partially hydrogenated”. The earlier these appear on the ingredients list, the worse it is. These fats are unhealthy, so avoid them when you can.

When choosing poultry, try to get skinless varieties. Much of the fat in poultry is in the skin. Chicken breasts have much less fat than legs and thighs.

Frozen dinners can be deceptive. Take a look at how many calories they really contain, as well as fat, sodium and cholesterol.

Aren’t getting enough calcium? If milk and cheese really aren’t to your taste, pick up any calcium fortified orange juice. The taste is great.

When buying bread and pasta, look for whole grain products. There is a difference between wheat bread and whole wheat bread.. Also give brown rice a try.

Switch your snack foods. Pretzels, any baked crackers, ginger snaps and angel food cake are relatively low in fat. If you’re watching your salt intake, of course, pretzels should be off the list.

Above all, make a list of the things you really need to buy. You do not have to rely on your memory, risking the need to go back to the grocery store more often than necessary, and you can better avoid temptation.

Health Charity

By the year 2020, India is going to become the youngest country in the world. Currently, going by the latest age demography in the country, over 28.5 per cent of the population comprises children aged below 14 years of age. And many of them fall in the lower income bracket wherein they are unable to receive quality education due to paucity of funds. This is a direct result of their parents not being able to earn enough to sustain large families.

Due to the abovementioned problems, it is important that charity organizations like JND Charitable Trust come out with a plan so that such families can be helped financially. Educating children from economically weaker sections of the society will not only result in getting them a good education, but it will also give the country a well-educated and professional workforce. After all, it is not good for a country to be just labour-oriented as machines are fast replacing manual workloads.

It is with this in mind that JND Charitable Trust is looking forward to generate charities for children from individuals, firms, companies and other philanthropic organizations.

Funds generated through the efforts of the Trust will not only help in uplifting of the poor, but will also help in health and family welfare measures. A well-educated workforce should also be healthy so that they are able to give a good output for development of the economy. Good health is directly related to what people from the lower income category consume. Charities from anyone concerned can help give such children and families a healthy diet so that they are not susceptible to health problems. If the workforce is well-educated and lacking on the health front, it will result in loss of numerous man hours and, thus, end in lower productivity.

A healthy diet is associated with also getting the right nutrients, and these can come in the form of a protein-rich diet and pills and medicines for those who are not physically strong. The right kind of food is necessary for not just health but also family welfare. The health of future generations is largely dependent on healthy parents.

The government is making efforts to make sure that the population leads a healthy lifestyle. But due to various constraints, it is not possible for officials to reach all nook and cranny of the country to cater to the masses. This is where organizations like JND Charitable Trust step in to boost the efforts undertaken by the government with the help of private funding.

So, give charities for children so that not only does health and family welfare get a boost, but the entire county prospers

Mental Health Disorders

<p>The Budding Disorders – Mental Health of Youngsters<p>
We tend to would love to assume that we have built our environments in such a method that they minimize the factors that could result to psychological and behavioral disturbances among individuals. So, optimizing our mental health. But statistics tell us that the bulk of our population’s mental health is basically subjected to negative environments.<p>
Complications brought about by negative atmosphere<p>
For many youngsters, symptoms of psychological disorders are linked to the negative stressors in the environment. Within the United States alone, one in each 5 children suffers severe physical abuse and one in every group of five lives below the poverty line. Additionally, psychosocial structures in cities where there’s poor housing expose kids to violence that would detriment their mental health. (You’ll be able to imagine how many kids in alternative countries that have so much lower economic standing and so much fewer programs for kid protection are subjected to negative stressors.)<p>
Each of the above stressors are thought of as traumatic experiences to children that might resurface as psychological disorders during adulthood.<p>
A negative or a positive atmosphere during childhood explains why there are adults who are more doubtless than to not develop psychological disorders and there are those who aren’t littered with these at all.<p>
For example, children who repeatedly experienced sexual trauma or sexual abuse are possibly to develop dissociative disorders such as multiple temperament disorder. The rate of victimization among intimate relationships solely reinforces the dissociative response. Additionally, repetitive exposure to violence or to the activities of a dysfunctional environment might also contribute to the development of severe dissociative disorders. These mental diseases root from the kid’s effort to deny the violence, abuse, or trauma they expertise as coping mechanism so as to guard his mental wellness. However, failure to completely endure these experiences would result to the impairment of his psychological wellness and even his social and emotional well-being.<p> Parental deprivations<p>
Some researchers assumed that the large distinction in variety of psychological disorders being treated these days as compared to prevalence in the past century is essentially contributed by dysfunctional family structures and parental deprivations. Indifference and neglect by familial figures, maternal-social deprivations, isolation and separation from parents are viewed as the foundation causes of psychological disorders like depressions, mental retardation, psychomotor impairments and also the manifestations of autistic-like behaviors among children.<p>
Pathogenic Parent-Kid Relationship<p>
The traumatic interpersonal relationship between a parent or a parent-figure and a child is viewed as a negative environment for the kid’s growth and development. This relationship only means that that their relationship is structured in the way that it damages a child’s psychological well-being. These provide stress to certain beliefs that are psychologically unfavorable to the child like irrational beliefs on self-blame, irrational explanations on traumatic experiences, maladaptive behaviors, unconscious guilt, shame and doubt regarding oneself. These beliefs are very powerful and might lead the child to over generalize negative incidents.<p>
Children experience all sorts of negative environments including war and violence, daily stress, economic issues and accelerating negative effects of technological changes. But among these, the most aggravated is the disabling relationship he has along with his immediate surroundings- his parents, his family and his direct interaction to his society. Above everything else, there’s a want to switch these negative environments so as to develop kids with better mental health and in the future, adults who can readily adapt to the stressors from their environments.</p>

How you think about food is another key to triumph. As opposed to rushing through your food between meetings or when your grabbing the children from school. Slow down and think about your food as something that’s needed for nourishment.

Listening to your body, eating with others in the office or commonly having a good quaint family dinner are some solutions to keep the eating in check. This is also a good way to instill excellent eating habits in your kids.

Kids Healthy Eating

You will never be healthy, eating healthy foods occasionally. You have to make healthy eating a habit if you need to obtain nutritional health.

I’ve been doing push-ups five days a week for over 25 years. My arms are pretty strong but it didn’t happen overnight. I didn’t do push-ups for a couple weeks or months and then stopped. I had to make push-ups a habit if I wanted to continuously get the results I have. Exactly the same holds true with having a healthy diet.

People jump on the “band wagon” of healthy eating when they read books or view web sites that talk about nutrition. While many of these books and web sites tell you what you should eat in-order to be healthy, they fail to teach you how to make healthy eating a habit. Thus in a short period of time when temptations come, people fall right back into their unhealthy eating habits.

What is a Habit? According to Webster’s dictionary a habit is “a behavior pattern acquired by frequent repetition or physiologic exposure that shows itself in regularity or increased facility of performance.”

Can you notice that if we simply apply this principle to healthy eating we will be on our way to vibrant health?

Bad Eating Habits:

Bad eating habits do not develop overnight. For most people these habits began forming when they were kids. Thus one reason why many adults have a hard time breaking their bad eating habits is because these habits have been a part of their lifestyle for many years.

Why Do We Eat Food?

There are two main reasons why we eat food. One is to supply fuel for our body. The other reason is for pleasure. Unfortunately any of the foods that give us pleasure are unhealthy.

Most people make their food selections based on what they see, smell or taste. Look at these three sentences: That pie sure looks good! That pie sure smells good! That pie sure taste good!

Notice that all three statements involve food and pleasure. However the food that’s producing the pleasure (in this situation the pie) may or may not be good for you from a nutritional standpoint. That is why we need to be wise in our food selections and not simply leave it up to our sense of sight, taste or smell.

Healthy Eating Can Be Enjoyable:

Some people think of a healthy diet as being boring and tasteless. I think that one reason they feel this way is because most of the commercial ads we notice promote foods high in calories, fat, or sugar and only a small percentage of food advertising is done for fruits, vegetables, grains and beans. Thus if there was more nutritional education, more and more people would find healthy eating to be pleasurable and tasty.

How Having a Healthy Diet Changed My Life:

In 1998 my wife finally talked me into going to the physician to get a check-up. I was not feeling sick but she clearly said that it was a good idea to get a yearly physical examination. Thank God I listened to her.

I’ve been athletic all my life. I run 18 miles a week. So when I went to the physician I was not expecting to hear the bad news he gave me. He told me I had borderline diabetes.

Diabetes can be very dangerous if not treated. It is one of the leading cause of death in the United States. It is a disease of the pancreas that causes the body to stop producing the insulin it needs to regulate blood sugar.

My physician told me that I didn’t need to be put on medication, however he suggested I start reading any books on healthy eating. That was the beginning of my path to a healthy diet that turned my health situation around.

Today I can honestly say that I’m in excellent health. I feel great, I sleep great, people tell me that I do not look my age, I maintain a healthy weight, I do not take any kind of medication, my blood pressure is normal, my blood sugar is normal, my cholesterol is normal, my immune system is strong, and the list goes on.

I do not believe that I’m healthy because of chance. I strongly believe that one main reason that I’m healthy is because I take personal responsibility for my health. A healthy diet is a good part of this responsibility. Our physical bodies have laws that are governed by proper nutrition. If we violate these laws by consistently eating unhealthy foods, we’re going to get sick.
