CLOTHING SHOULD BE AGE -APPROPRIATE

'If you've grand children and you're dressing like them, there is a problem. It's OK to want to look youthful,  just make sure your outfits suit your stage of life'  Stephanie Watson.

MONEY SAVING TIPS

Saving is the part of  a persons's income that is not spent, for future or emergency use. For example, putting money aside in a bank, for un expected expenses such as sudden job loss, car repair etc. for future uses eg, save for retirement , kids education. Money saved  gives us security and safety.

 


There are so  many tips on google about money saving, but I like to share the followings;

Make a budget;  take all the monthly expenses, try to cut back or minimize the ones you can, and look  for opportunities to maximize saving. By keeping a budget  you avoid spending than you earn.

Pay yourself first ; make saving a habit, each time you get paid, deposit 10% of your income into saving account .

Make a shopping list before you go to shop, and stick to it . So that you can avoid over spending.

Try to buy things that cost less instead of things that cost more.

Don't buy into trends; keep a wardrobe of classic pieces  so that you don't need update your clothes every year.

Save your coins; empty your pockets every day and put all change in a jar,don't touch it, until a specific use.

Pause for a thought ; if you are about to buy something, which isn't a necessity, wait and think twice, before you make a purchase, give yourself a time to compare prices , or come up with a plan b, or decide not to buy.


So money can't buy  happiness but make life easier and comfortable.

SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE



Sedentary lifestyle, is a lifestyle  with no or  little physical activities. It's sometime referred as a sitting disease , because the condition, which  predates the term is charecterized by sitting or remaining inactive for most time with little or no exercise. For example sitting, reading, watching tv, playing video games, those are some of sedentary activities.



WHO report of april 2002, states that physical inactivity can have serious  problems  for peoples's health, sedentary life style is among 10 leading causes  of death and physical disability in the world, it causes  two millions deaths annually, but  not addressed as Public Health Problem.

On top of  that, it can contribute to or be a risk  factor  for, anxienty cardiovascular disease, depression, diabetes, colon cancer, obesity, kidney stones etc , also it increases tobacco use, poor diet and nutrition.

Remember that, people who doesn't  practice physical fitness, are not all lazy, others are busy with work , business etc. As a result, they  have no time for physical activities, its important for busy people to find time for exercising, and lazy people should do the same.





The following are some of the tips, you can learn and try to be active,
  • Try to exercise even while sitting at your desk or sofa, exercise arms and legs to keep your muscles active and blood flowing.
  •  Take a short walk during lunch break, find a place which is not closer to your office for your lunch, walk at least 15 to 20 minutes everyday, go and return.
  • Try to walk  during telephone conversation, if possible instead of sitting.
  • Go to the gym during week ends for physical fitness, if you too busy use indoor exercising equipment every evening while you are watching television, or listening music.
  • Once a week try to do something which is fun and more physical with your family or friends, to burn calories and give a boost to your health, for example jumping rope, play ball, jogging or swimming.
  • Help your  self, try to do domestic works e.g,  gardening, sweeping, any work which can keep you moving while cleaning your house.

Remember, active lifestyle prevents premature death and which leads to have less health problems, and spend less on your medical cost, also improves the functioning of your body.

             ACTIVE PEOPLE ARE HAPPY AND FEEL BETTER.

WOMEN ARE LIKE APPLES

"Women are like apples on trees.The  best ones are at the top of the tree.Most men don't want to reach for the good ones, because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good  but easy .The apples at the top think something is  with them , when in reality, they're amazing.They just have to wait for the right  man to come along,  the one who is brave enough to climb  all the way to the top  of a tree" Goal Auzeen.

NEW BLOG IN TOWN

         


   


     You are  all invited to my blog, to learn, to show love and support, Thanks.

CRAB MENTALITY "IF I CAN'T HAVE IT,NEITHER CAN YOU."

The above title is a message I like to share with you today. May be you have heard about it , or may be not. The main thing to be learned is how to deal with crab mentality.




Crab mentality is a popular phrase in Philippines, the concept refers to an interesting phenomenon which occurs in a bucket of  live crabs, if one crab attempts to escape the other crabs will pull it back down rather than  allowing it to get free.

The above phenomenon is synonym to people who don't want others to achieve more than what they have achieved in their lives. They will do whatever it takes to pull you down; especially when s/he sees that you have all the potentials to pursue and achieve your dreams.

Crab mentality can occur out of jealous, conspiracy or competitive feelings; do you remember in the Bible when Cain killed Abel? That was the first incident of crab mentality to  be recorded. It is human nature for some to envy, or for some to back stab someone in order to acquire others' position, or prevent them to be happy or successful.

Crab people may try to discourage you every way they can, with anger, verbal attacks, talking behind your back, spreading false information about you just to ruin your reputation  etc, so that you can loose your confidence and stop pursuing your dreams.

Now, know that crab people always want to be the best not others, to deal with people, first you have to understand that we cannot avoid this kind of people for they are everywhere .

So learn the following things;


  • Recognize the crab  around you is very important,  it's better to end the relationship with crab people , but what if that crab person is a family member , a relative or your boss. Accept the reality who they are, don't waste you time trying to change them, focus on your achievements, and not on their negativities. "When you climb to the top of the obstacle that is blocking your view, you are able to look at your situation from a different perspective" Lucy  MacDonald.



  • Don't share your plan, success stories or things like that with crab people. Try to associate with positive minded people , who work hard and support others.



  • Keep fighting; this is very important, don't let any one discourage you, don't loose your confidence and stay focused, if you want to get to the top keep fighting. "Rise above hate , conquer your fear , and be a star."John Cena
