• About Koalas

    Koala, Bears, Tree, Sitting, Perched

    The Koala Bear is usually recognized by its fluffy little body and cute innocent looking face. Native to Australia it resides only in particular areas of Australia.

    The Koala Bear isn’t actually a bear, but believed to be confused as one by the European settlers in the late 1800’s.

    Interestingly there are no koala’s in Western Australia, Northern Territory or Tasmania. The Koala’s from the south are generally much larger than those from the North. The Queensland koalas tend to be smaller with less fur.

    The basic diet of the Koala is Eucalyptus leaves that may grow in the tall gum trees of Australia or low lying Eucalyptus plants. There are lots of distinct varieties of Eucalyptus of which just several will the koala feed . The leaves are hard to chew, high in fiber and low in protein. Along with a reduced metabolic rate the koala must conserve energy and does this by waking to 19 hours a day. When awake 3 of those 5 hours are spent eating.

    Koalas communicate by bellowing to each other and although appear to be a docile creature, they can be very vicious.

    They have sharp teeth and claws which aid in climbing and chewing the tough diet they require. Rarely do they drink water, although will do so if absolutely necessary.

    Breeding time is during the Australian spring/summer from around September to March. A koala can have one pup a year up until about 12 years old.

    Gestation is 35 days old, where the small pup is born blind and with no fur. It makes it way to the rear facing pouch where it feeds off the two teats for the next 6 months. Babies will make their way from the pouch around 8 months and cling onto its mother’s back. The infant is completely weaned at 12 months.

    Koalas can hang out with their mom for about 3 years or until another baby is born.

    Unfortunately the koala is in decline, mainly because of urbanization which has caused the destruction of its habitat. Although the koala is now known as’vulnerable’ by the Australian authorities, its habitat isn’t protected.

  • Anorexia in Women

    Weight Loss, Slimming, Diet, Health

    Eating disorders tend to go beyond the boundaries of having to be skinny with restricted-eating customs (most seem to get attached to their owner emotionally ). That’s to say – the emotional factor is often the instigator behind a woman believing she is fat, overly fat, or even verging on the side of being fat.

    Psychological factors often provoke an anorexia sufferer to behave absurd by restricting their eating habits; thus, causing an inadequate intake of calories, minerals, and nutrients, etc., the body so needs to stay healthy. Even starving by an anorexia sufferer isn’t such an unusual practice, together with purging (eating, followed by forced/self-inflicted vomiting after-wards). Other symptoms may include: obsessive exercise, and the use of laxatives to help themselves lose-weight.

    So why does anorexia affect more women than men?

    The”press” has much to do with anorexia, as each time one watches the t.v., or flips through a magazine – the something that becomes evident is -“the ideal look,” where skinny women are”glamorized,” and obese women are”looked-down upon” (a element that can propel a woman [or child] into believing she may be looked-down upon if she doesn’t exhibit the same perfect profile the public asks for.

    Girls are different to men with regards to beauty – remember, many women won’t leave the house in the morning without putting their makeup on first (for the fear of not being regarded as beautiful [a psychological aspect that men don’t have to live with]). Additionally, it’s fairly commonly known – a man may have two or three pairs of shoes in the cupboard to combine with their garments, whereas a woman may have a few dozen pairs of shoes in theirs (again a psychological element for women, also considered an unnecessary aspect of life for most guys ]).

    “Many” being the operable word here, as a small proportion of men do actually suffer from anorexia. However, several of that small percentage work in what are regarded as”women’s jobs” by most men – dancers, and models, etc., and where there’s a need to be fit and slim (although they do exist – fat manufacturers and versions are not commonly called for from the public eye).

    Some women are naturally thin/skinny, so no real work is needed in exercise and dieting. But for most of us (the audience ) that is not the case, and where not even with dieting and exercise would we end-up using a finely sculptured

    Body as those that can be observed on the t.v., and in the many magazines which may be seen at the local paper shop.

    As a result of this, for a small percentage of women, the only option to get the perfect body is to eat less. But a psychological factor seems to set-in on this trip where the perception of what’s perfect/slim/skinny gets distorted (at this stage, less food is consumed, in order to become even skinnier – or more perfect because it is seen).

    Also, subconsciously, an anorexia sufferer might even feel like they have accomplished something great by being able to control their eating (or at least that is what they believe they are doing). More often than not, the same person will be so preoccupied with their eating habits (weight-loss), they may even forget about other important things in life, or might simply avoid doing all of them together.

    It is thought that anorexia sufferers feel a great sense of achievement because they’re able to exercise an extreme degree of willpower on what they eat (or more so what they do not eat) and their weight (other motives for anorexia eating disorders may be heredity).

    Conclusion – The simple fact is that the press, tends to bring out the inbuilt weakness of a small fraction of girls for the need to be perfect (beautiful), which is nothing more that a psychological aspect that’s less important to men.

  • Hypothyroidism

    Image result for hypothyroidism

    Hypothyroidism. It’s a term you often hear when people are struggling to shed weight, but what is it, how do you get it and, above all, how is it treated?

    What is hypothyroidism?

    As this hormone is responsible for keeping the body’s metabolism working properly, if you don’t have the correct amount, you’re not only likely to experience weight gain, but a whole host of other symptoms too. Thyroxine is produced in the thyroid gland, a small butterfly shaped gland that’s situated in the neck just in front of the windpipe. If the thyroid doesn’t produce enough thyroxine, your body’s functions begin to slow down.

    Who’s likely to suffer from an underactive thyroidgland?

    Unfortunately women tend to suffer from hypothyroidism more than men, with 1 in 50 women expected to develop the condition in contrast to 1 in 1000 men. While it usually develops in adulthood, becoming more prevalent with increasing years, it can happen at any age and anyone can be affected, with some children being born with congenital hypothyroidism.

    What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism?

    There are a range of common symptoms that are associated with an overactive thyroid. These include feeling more tired than normal, weight gain, fluid retention, aching muscles, dry skin, lifeless hair and feeling cold, although you won’t necessarily experience all these at the same time. Additionally, there are some less common symptoms, including loss of sex drive, carpal tunnel syndrome and a hoarse voice.

    The main cause of hypothyroidism in the US is autoimmune disease, called Autoimmune Thyroiditis or Hashimoto’s disease, where the antibodies created by the immune system attach to the thyroid gland and prevent it from producing the right levels of thyroxine.

    An underactive thyroid gland can be diagnosed by means of a simple blood test which measures the levels of thyroid stimulating hormone in the blood. Higher levels than normal indicate that the thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroxine. It can also be identified by low levels of thyroxine (T4). While the condition can’t be cured it can be treated with a daily dose of the synthetic thyroid hormone, Levothyroxine, which may reverse symptoms in as little as 7 to 14 days. Once you begin this treatment, you’ll have to take it for the rest of your life and you’ll have to undergo annual checks to make certain that the dose remains suitable for your needs.

  • Children’s Health

    Little Girl, Wildflowers, Meadow, Child

If there’s a fantastic beginning, the ethical character of children can be reached in the future. Get nutritious development; Should you ignore the child’s mental health right now, then it’s more difficult or even impossible to expect the child to have a wholesome personality and health psychology after becoming an adult. Relaxed emotions allow children to carry out a variety of activities smoothly. The development of young children’s emotions is characterized by exposure to disease.
    To Allow children to have a good psychological experience, parents should:
    Set an example for children to imitate, and constantly infect their children with their positive mood.
    To establish a harmonious and tacit connection between parents so as to have a subtle effect on kids. This is the reality.
    Spiritual Investments
    The American psychologist Campbell suggested that parents must make corresponding religious investments to create children mentally healthy.
    Respect and Independence
    Study your child , make intimate contact with your child, and pay attention to your child. Respect for children, though they are young, they ought to also be considered a member of their family with a certain level of liberty, have their own emotions and needs.

  • Understanding The Restless Teenage Years

    Feet, Legs, Standing, Waiting, Crossed
    Educating the adolescents has been hardest in our educational system. It’s the time when the child is embroiled in internal conflict as to personal identity, a time that there’s such an impulse to rebel against the present adult arrangement; a period that if teachers aren’t careful may produce a make or mar situation. That’s the time that children are more likely to take to medication because of peer groups and other aspects that goes beyond the scope of this write-up. But poor comprehension of what’s happening to the teenager is bound to quicken their alienation to their surroundings, making them a victim to odd impacts.
    I’ve said in other posts that the spirit, the future owner of the body generally incarnate in the fetus at the center of pregnancy. It’s the period of the first kick of the infant in the uterus, and with the entry of the soul that the blood mechanically forms. It is therefore safe to say that the spirit forms the blood it’s likely to use in the body. This is because the soul binds itself into the body with the blood as the bridge. Actually it’s the radiation of the soul which joins with the radiation of the blood vessels to keep it jumped. Hence whenever the spirit leaves the body in death the body instantly dissolves. But that isn’t the topic for now.
    It is as if it’s intended to be connected with the world but wasn’t yet permitted to until the ideal time. That’s the reason children learn just by imitation, because obligation hasn’t yet set in. They’re more like animals, evoking the source of the body I discussed in the content Evolution vs Creation. It’s also at this age that mostly people have the ability to see the kinds of the forces of the components such as the gnomes, elves and water sprites. It’s also the time when the connection of the soul with their previous lives is strongest. Teachers must take into considerations of the fact in order not to hamper the natural evolution of the child. For a child who can see an elemental being and a teacher informs him that such beings don’t exist but is a figment of his imagination does lots of damage to the child’s mind.
    At adolescence, the bridge has become lowered for the soul to make immediate contact with the environment. Here the timing of personal responsibility sets in, and there’s this longing for everything perfect by the individual involved. However, the perfect they envisage is glaringly contrary to the fact they see in the world. This is the reason for the rebellious character of youth. And this rebellion can be taken to extremes, especially when, in the case of girls, books of love paint artificial pictures of existence.
  • Seven Tips For Stress Release

    Company, Mother, Kids, Mother, Mother
    I ask that you use wise discernment & take what resonates & functions for you & your situation & let go the rest!
    Kids ordinarily do not recall the things you purchased them when they develop. At the end of the day, the most overpowering key to your child’s success is the positive involvement of parents.
    1] Notice how you go about your day, breathe & pause & consciously release what’s not working.
    Do you hurry through most things frequently considering these things to be done or how well or not well everything previously went? If you notice yourself breathing very shallow or quickly, I ask that you slow down & pick mindful breathing. This will open space to stop racing & rather be calm.
    As children, we obviously learnt abdominal breathing. Not only will conscious breathing & being in this instant assist you, you’ll also be a terrific model for your kids on utilizing”pause and breathe” as strategies to help redirect & prevent meltdowns.
    Do consciously breathe too to release any tension, stress or tightness you might feel.
    Thought Invokers are questions to reflect on & that frequently bring insight:
    A thought invoker to think about: What can open up for you once you go worrying & trying to be & do it all flawlessly?
    2] Acknowledge everything you’re thankful for such as people, events, successes, learning, opportunities and items regularly. When you build the habit of appreciating people,events, & things more on a daily basis, you will find a heightened sense of joy! .
    Practice appreciating & observing small joys & victories even with your own children. They’ll start enjoying more rather than taking things for granted.
    Everything you love, appreciates!
    3) Identify & compose your vision and intention[s] for the year and 3-5 decades.
    Then take the time to identify 3-4 daily practices that will support you meet your vision and objectives. It can be brief & sharp OR if have more time and want to, then spend some opportunity to be more illustrative. Then allow yourself to feel the emotions you feel as if you have already obtained this vision. You’ll be motivated by the emotions of joy and gratitude on fulfilling your preferred vision. Listen for your intuition and inner wisdom advice and take modest steps daily towards your vision!
    Always use wise judgement & change based on opinions. You may decide to share with your spouse /partner, a buddy or trainer for support.
    4] Meet with other Moms with the intention to talk about, learn from each other, encourage and celebrate each other (physically or even virtually). There is important research suggesting that women feel a drop in their anxiety levels when they connect, share and learn from others like them.
    5) Take some time out for at least one clinic that will help you maintain observer mode and nurtures you physically, emotionally and spiritually. This could enable you to release old limiting patterns & get you from being in reactive mode. [which frequently occurs to Mothers / Dad / or frankly anyone who has worried!] .
    What one-two actions emotionally & /or fulfill you?
    6) Taking care of yourself isn’t just important, it is critical!
    Take at least 10 minutes [and if possible more] for to take part in something you love and that provides you pleasure and where you forget time.
    What is possible for you & your loved ones when you make the time to invest in you?
    What is an activity that makes you believe you’re in your zone?
    Bear in mind the plane example-we are reminded to put our own oxygen mask then put on the mask for many others including our kids. After all, what good can we do to others if we are not around?
    7) You do not have to do it alone!
    Empower yourself with assistance from a mentor who cares for and calls on your brilliance and natural gifts and abilities!
    Find a trainer you resonate with & proceed on your desired results today!
    Working with a Coach differs from working with a therapist, consultant or perhaps a Mentor. A mentor is also distinct from a friend who listens and hopes & wants you to listen to them and encourage them.
    Coaching is focused on improving quality of life and work and is a procedure for conversion & transformation.

  • How To Love Yourself

    Heart, Love, Romance, Valentine, Harmony
    How we treat ourselves in difficult moments says a whole lot about who we are. It’s simple to be on top of the world when things are moving and we would like to hold on to the feeling hoping it is going to last forever. Yet when it does not, it seems as though we’re bound to train paths using an oncoming train headed our way and not able to move.
    How we behave towards ourselves in our darkest moment’s lays the basis for who we become later on. Self-love is a tricky concept for many to grasp. I have had innumerable coaching sessions with individuals who find it tough to love and love themselves. They become entrenched into our mind and nervous system and, if strengthened, are difficult to give up. However, difficult doesn’t mean impossible.
    Is this something you have experienced? By way of instance, how can you treat yourself when things do not go your way? What’s your inner dialogue during those times? I have experienced pain and suffering during my entire life in the shape of losing my father to disease, a relationship break up, a health crisis and fiscal woes. There were times I found it hard to appreciate myself due to this despairing inner dialogue that convinced me it was my fault for being in this circumstance. I felt trapped, helpless and impossible to navigate my way out.
    This is why I wrote my first book since it was a subject I had been intimate with and new well. However, I recognized that being trapped in my situation wasn’t who I am. It wasn’t the narrative I wished to live, nor succumb to. I knew somewhere deep inside me there was a presence yearning to express itself but I did not know how to get in contact with it. I wanted to love and nurture myself with compassion rather than negative self-talk. Gradually, I noticed my conditions started to shift and my internal dialogue changed when I began meditating.
    The love within us expects you to come home to it. It’s your palace of refuge, a place that knows no boundaries, other than to get you in its arms and wake you to your authentic self. The self-love I talk of starts by recognising that tough moments don’t last. To love yourself through difficult times when there’s minimal growth requires you hope that what’s happening is doing this to help you give up the ruins of the past. It’s breaking down the tired and old methods of living a new base of love and strength can emerge out of your authentic self.
    The spiritual teacher and writer Matt Kahn provides us the wisdom in his book What’s Here to Help You: A Loving Guide for Your Soul’s Evolution that love is more than an emotion but a wellspring of compassion that resides within us and our job would be to bring it forth:”From a religious perspective, love is not an emotion we feel all of the time. Love is an unwavering depth of compassion and compassion that reaches inward to adopt our experiences-no matter how mixed up, closed down, unfulfilled, or overwhelmed we are inclined to be. When rooted in the vibration of love, we do not need to be totally treated to bring forth the care and kindness that resides within us.”
    There’s a source of love within you that beckons one to connect with this. Do not take my word for it since it appears on your display. Unite with this loving presence by standing before a mirror and reciting the words:”I love you” the minute you finish reading this report. Recite them as frequently as possible because you are outside conditions don’t need to dictate the way you love yourself. The love that I speak of is there waiting for you to come home to it. The more you connect with this boundless presence, the greater it’ll be known throughout your lifetime. How we treat ourselves through hard times says a whole lot about who we are because who we are is a power of love. If we make time to get in touch with this presence more frequently, we’ll realise that our problems serve a purpose; to return us to the wholeness of our authentic self.
