    5 Tips To Make Life Easier for Those With Cognitive Disabilities

    A small yet significant portion of the population lives with some sort of intellectual disability. In many cases, this inhibits their ability to learn in traditional ways and may interfere with their understanding of certain abstract concepts. However, it does not mean these individuals cannot learn and function within society. In fact, many people with cognitive disabilities can master things like reading and writing, basic household tasks and preparing simple meals. With the right level of support and care, individuals living with cognitive decline or intellectual disabilities can thrive and blossom.

    THE BIG V IS FOR ME VEGAN

    THE BIG V IS FOR ME VEGAN

    It all started two years ago, my very first bout with colitis! I did not feel good and a good thing my friend was helping me with the housework. I went to my bed with a stomach ache. I thought it would go away, but it kept on getting worse. I had to go to the bathroom and I felt like vomiting too! As I was walking to the bathroom I fainted. My toy poodle ran and got my friend and she saw me on the floor. I heard her call my name but I could not get up from the floor. My friend called my daughter and my daughter told her to call the paramedics. The paramedics came and took me to the hospital. My daughter came to the hospital and told me how my dog Smokie got her to come to me. I said he is smart, poodles are very smart and Smokie had a college degree! I asked my daughter where is Smokie she said home. I said well He needs to have a big treat!

    Preventing Health Issues From Wildfire Smoke

    The western coast of the United States is suffering some of the largest wildfires in history, reports state that in California wildfires have burned over 3.2 million acres of land. Firefighters are battling 28 wildfires in the state. In Oregon more than one million acres of land have been burned and at least 10% of the state’s population is under evacuation orders. These unprecedented wildfires have impacted wildlife, destroyed homes and property, caused serious injuries and even death and compromised the air’s quality. News outlets have published photos from the Bay Area showing a grim red sky filled with smoke from nearby wildfires. Wildfires not only destroy vegetation and property, but the smoke poses a serious health risk for the population near them.

    Black Minds Matter

    Black Minds Matter

    Growing up the black community I knew that seeking help for mental health was seen as weird and taboo. Telling someone you are in therapy was like openly admitting to being that psycho killer from all the horror movies. There are a wide variety of mental health issues that stretch a wide spectrum of intensity that affect most of the population. Why does my community think it affects all these people, but not us? We want to be strong. We want to be the perfect embodiment of strength. We want to be built so strong that no one from the outside world could ever break us down. Having a mental health issue is seen as a weakness. It is the crack in the foundation that threatens to tear the whole structure down. Just like eye color and freckles this is something that is passed down from parent to child year after year. It is one of those generational curses that people are always talking about. One that needs to be broken now across the board. One that is causing more harm by having so many people not receive the help they need from fear of they will be perceived.

Although all of these larger issues are a huge problem, the issue of pollutants has actually permeated into even the smallest parts of our daily lives, like the water we drink. This is where reverse osmosis (RO) can come into play: it can remove the harmful contaminants and ensure clean, crisp water for drinking.

    The journey of single parent getting healthy

    The journey of single parent getting healthy

    I have always been a bigger girl my whole life. I was always trying to lose weight, trying the newest fad diet. I always lost weight but then would gain it back again. When I had a baby at 31 I gained weight of course and ended up at my heaviest at 220 lbs. Then I broke my arm needing surgery making me unable to work out for a long time. I had heard people say that you need to get to a point where you are fed up, fed up of being sick and tired. I use to think that of course I want to lose weight and be healthy that is crazy. But they really are right. At some point I got fed up with always lacking energy, not being able to do things and just generally not being happy in my own skin. I had lost a lot of strength after I broke my arm and at first I just wanted to gain some of it back. So I started off on a journey to be healthy. My focus was not to lose weight specifically, it was to be healthy. Which is my first bit of advice, focus on health. I focused on my want to be able to keep up with my daughter. I would see that I wasn't checked into life and wasn't present with her unable to keep up with all her energy all the time. With health as your focus it's easier I found to see the successes. Not all successes are about losing weight. Maybe it's losing inches instead, or just having more energy. There are many other things that come with being healthy. Losing weight is sometimes just a benefit. Most people feel like the start to workout and then don't lose weight right away so they give up. Focus on the other things and believe that losing weight will come.

    Tips for Staying Active During Coronavirus Outbreak

    Tips for Staying Active During Coronavirus Outbreak

    As self-quarantines, social distancing, and stay-at-home orders continue as coronavirus safety measures, millions of people are confined to their homes every single day. Being stuck at home is a huge change in routine, which can cause extra stress and concern in one’s life. Often, when stressed or worried, exercising is an excellent way to get some energy out and focus your mind on something else. Without fitness centers and gyms, it can be very challenging to remain physical activity and keep your body moving. Sedentary behavior and low levels of physical activity can have adverse effects on the health, well-being, and quality of life for many people. Quarantine, social distancing, and stay-at-home orders can also cause additional stress and add to mental health problems. Participating in physical activity as relaxation and stress-releasing technique can help protect your health in these uncertain times.

    Yoga Creates A Balance Between The Body, Mind And Soul.

    Yoga is an ancient science that aims to create a balance between the body, mind and soul, thereby curing physical mental and spiritual disorders that are caused by this imbalance. In common language, yoga means union; its a union of the individual consciousness with the super-consciousness. To be exact, yoga aims at reminding the individual of this union that already exists and has merely been forgotten. To put it simply, yoga is experiencing and knowing what already exists, not inventing anything new.
