Our new house was waiting for us now, finished and ready to be moved into – a week before my due date. Prior to Mia’s birth, though, I had announced that i would not be moving until after the baby was born. I was nesting and would not be going anywhere. When Mia was one week old, our new family of four moved into our new house.
This has been a great day. I’ve been in a good mood most of the day and i haven’t lost my temper (much) or my mind today. I actually played with both kids and enjoyed it. I set up an obstacle course for Kage and giggled while i climbed over boxes, under his little table, under Mia’s swing and stepped over the footstool with him. He enjoyed it. I was able to smile and revel in my baby girl’s laughter as I tickled and nuzzled her. I haven’t enjoyed her very much since her birth, so today was particularly sweet as I was able to appreciate my daughter while not getting angry at her for being a baby.
For example, the U.S. Department of health and human services recently published a report containing teen obesity statistics. The report said that 14% of teens in the united states are obese. Translation: 14% of our teens are at elevated risk for high cholesterol, heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 Diabetes.
Manage your stress any good way you can. Stress causes heart disease which is the number one killer of adults in the united states. Learning to control stress will help you feel better every day and decrease chances of health problems. Try meditation, relaxation and exercise to manage stress. Read a good book or find a hobby that you can put your back into.
I do not think this problem will go away until we as a nation stand up and say we have had enough. No more hitting, no more abusing. If you are abused and keep quiet, then you are enabling the abuser to continue mistreating you. Family disturbances are one of the most frequent calls for law enforcement officers. Often when they get to the home they are told that this is family business – we take care of our own. Taking care of someone is not the same as abusing them. We have to break the cycle of violence with our children. We must treat them with respect and kindness, even when they are disciplined. We must teach them to respect everyone and that violence will not be tolerated.
OIf you have told your boss, ask for workplace changes that will make a difference to your health, for example starting a bit later so any sedative side effects have worn off.
If you suffer from insomnia, your first line of defense is to ensure that the place you sleep is cool, dark and quiet. Use this space — usually your bedroom — for sleeping and sex only. Don’t watch television or read in bed. Avoid caffeine for several hours before bedtime. Try not to get stressed in the two hours before bedtime. While exercise overall can help you get a good night’s sleep, exercise as late as two or three hours before bedtime actually can make it difficult to fall asleep.
The most important thing you can do is eat a proper diet. Diet is the control mechanism that eliminates high blood pressure, diabetes and heart diseases. The American Heart Association recommends that you eat a variety of nutrient dense foods like whole grains and fruit and vegetables plus low-fat dairy and stay away from fats, sugars and salt. Stop drinking alcohol in a binge fashion and replace alcohol with fruit drinks, smoothies and water.
