I read. A lot. I’ve done it since I was a child, and I have continued this habit as an adult. I read all types of books including fiction, non-fiction, historical, reference, self-development, and spiritual.
Books offer an escape, a diversion, a learning tool, and a transformational vehicle. I often encounter books that change my perspective and open my eyes in unexpected ways.
The books I have included in this list have done just that. They may be classified under the self-development or self-help category, but they are not what you expect. Some offer profanity, humor, and even cynicism, and others offer spirituality, but they all provide the possibility for transformation.
Hypertension or high blood pressure (HBP) is a chronic condition in which blood pressure is elevated above its normal range of 120 mm Hg of systolic pressure or above 80 mm Hg of diastolic pressure.
HBP is often asymptomatic and requires blood pressure readings in order to be identified. However, it can cause nose bleeding, headaches, a red or flushed face, dizziness, fatigue, nervousness, insomnia, blurred vision, fluid retention, and shortness of breath (Marieb & Hoehn, 2013).
Treatment for HBP involves lifestyle changes, although other types of support, such as the use of aromatherapy, can be beneficial. Here are 3 essential oils that can aid with HBP.
I recently got an email from Emily Z, a 14-year old who is aspiring to be a mental health professional. She alerted me to an informative webpage on eating disorders.
Emily’s enthusiasm inspired me to look more into the topic, especially in how it relates to teenagers since they are more susceptible to develop them. I have however, also included some information about how eating disorders affect adults.
An eating disorder happens when a person develops an unhealthy relationship with food and can involve under eating and/or over eating. Often, eating disorders are associated with distorted body image (Maryville University, n.d.).
There is no identifiable cause for eating disorders, although there are factors that have been linked with eating disorders. I will explain these here, as well as possible treatment options. I will start by explaining the more common eating disorders.
Our bodies communicate regularly with us. They tell us when things are going well. We feel comfortable in our own skin, we move with ease, and we do things freely. We go on with our lives without much thought.
They also tell us when things are off. We feel tightness, aches, pains, illness, or discomfort. We know there is something amiss, and we rest, we take supplements and/or medication, we exercise, and we do what we feel is necessary to take corrective steps.
The same thing happens to us with our food. When we eat something, and it works well for our bodies we respond well. In fact, we don’t even think about it. But, when we eat something that is not good for us, we feel discomfort. Often, we get so used to the discomfort, either because it happens frequently or because there is too much going on in our lives, that we stop listening.
The key behind getting control of our diet is remembering to listen to our bodies. That means learning to eat intuitively. I mentioned eating intuitively in an article about how to get vitamins from our diet, and I mentioned I would dedicate a separate article on how to eat intuitively, and here it is.
