    Deciding to change your lifestyle.
    ————————————–
    Once we recognized we have a problem, the temptation is to want
    to make a change immediately. This, however, is rarely a good
    idea. The reason is that for our attempts to be successful we
    need to be absolutely sure we are willing to make the changes
    necessary.

    For example, if we discover that we have high cholesterol, we
    might want to immediately start dieting and doing more exercise.
    However, this can lead to problems. If we have not made a firm
    decision to make the necessary changes, then when we encounter
    obstacles, (which there will be many of), we will not have the
    commitment to overcome them. We then might define our inability
    to overcome the obstacles as a failure on our part. This is
    likely to lead to the belief that we cannot make the necessary
    changes, and we give up trying.

    To avoid this problem we need to focus on making a decision to
    change, rather than just reacting to bad news. One of the best
    ways to do this is to focus on the pros and cons of making
    changes.

    ———————————————-
    The Pros and Cons of Changing
    ———————————————-

    Take a piece of paper and write on the top what you want to
    change, for example: exercising more, or eating less saturated
    fat. Then make two columns on the paper and title one of them,
    pros and the other one, cons. Under pros, write down all the
    good reasons for making your change. For example under exercise
    you might say, get into better shape, or have more stamina.
    Under eating less saturated fat, you might write: lose weight.

    Under the Cons, write all the reasons for not making these
    changes. For example under exercise you might say, “I don’t
    feel I have the time”, or “I don’t like exercising”. Or for
    eating less saturated fat you might say, “I would have to
    give up my favorite foods”, or “It will require a lot of
    changes in my meal preparation”. According to Prochaska,
    Norcross and DiClemete in their book, “Changing for Good”,
    for a change to be successful the pros have to outweigh the
    cons.

    Are your pros more than your cons? If so, go ahead and start
    preparing to change. If your pros are not more than your
    cons, do not despair. This just means you need to focus your
    efforts on looking for more of the pros, and coming up with
    responses to the cons that will decrease their influence on
    you. Being aware of the cons of making a change is very
    important, as they tell you what you need to prepare for.
    Being prepared for the obstacles before you encounter them
    will improve your chances of success.

The magnetic Messaging system has been engineered by the top pickup artist, which shows you exactly how they had success in meeting some of the most beautiful women on this planet. They know that if you can raise any type of emotion with women, than it would be a lot easier for you to build attraction between you too.

The best thing is that this system will work in any setting, it being a bar, gym, office and even the grocery store.

    The system is built on the premise of the key lock sequence which operates as a 3 step system and shows you exactly what you need to do to build your attraction within the opposite sex. It also works as your personal guide providing you with examples, a lesson plan and even a damage control plan just in case things do not go as planned.

    Another great thing about this system does is change the way you view almost all situations. It shows you that attraction is not black and white and a womens opinion of you can change within seconds, minutes and even hours. This system will even work on a woman that you have not spoken to in several months or years. Its a system that has been shown to generate all types of emotions which will at least having her text you back trying to find out more about the text message that you have just sent her. Remember, its all about creating emotion and curiosity.

    As a parent, you may find it difficult when your child goes off to college. There is nothing wrong with that. Many parents find themselves in this situation. College is a big step for everyone in life and it’s great that you recognize the issue. Going off to college is a similar feeling to the first day of kindergarten or even high school. It’s just on a bigger scale.

    College is a new way of life for both sides, parents and students. It’s a big change for students and there’s a lot of emphasis placed on the student adjusting to the college lifestyle. We overlook that parents need to adjust as well. It’s not always easy for the parent to send their child off to college. How the parent responds can be a huge impact on how the student adapts to their new lifestyle.

    The biggest change is the students living on their own. They won’t have mom or dad to remind them to do their homework or clean their room or make the student’s food. All that lies within the responsibilities of the student. Now, the parent can choose to help influence the student’s lifestyle once he/she is away. You can act like a sideline coach to help push them in the right direction.

    In sports, the coach is always on the sidelines directing players to the ultimate goal: to win. The coach can’t play for them, that lies with the players. Your role as college parent will be similar to this. You need to be able to “coach” the student to adjust, just as a coach wills his players to victory. The most important thing for a parent is to trust their student. They need to believe that their student can make the commitments to adapt to college life.

    The coach’s role is not on the field but his present is essential on the sidelines. The coach acts as a guide, telling players what to do and to make any adjustments when something is wrong. They encourage when the players succeeds and teach them a lesson when they fall short.

    Coaches play a huge role in every athlete. Even the professional athletes need their coaches to help guide them along the way. Coaches don’t have a physical presence during games, but they can influence the outcome in many ways. This role of a coach is important in the student/parent relationship during college. Your student may or may not have problems adjusting to college. As long as they have their “coach” to guide them, it can go a long way.

    The family unit in the United Arab Emirates is an important social unit for an Arab. Loyalty to family or surname influences all aspects of family life and society United Arab Emirates. The Arab honor and respect for his family, particularly children. Therefore, it is very paternalistic, patriarchal and hierarchical, with elders and parents who make the decisions.

    UAE national families are large, with families citing God going from one to procreate. Therefore, the bigger the better, giving economic and spiritual benefit. Children, when growing older are expected to care for parents, especially for children that much to bear the financial burden, if necessary. Also, it is noted thatlarger families demonstrate the virility of the father.

    As far as fidelity passes, family comes first, then clan and tribe. The UAE nationals also reflect national identity and, moreover, are proud of their culture. There is also a strong loyalty to the royal families. Demonstrating this includes photos of the leaders in all walks of life. The UAE Nationals his beloved founding father, Sheikh Zayed, and there was massive show of grief over his death. The people still comment on their generosity for what he did for them and for the construction of the UAE.

    Women

    Women are respected in the UAE society, as they are the ones who bring life in the world, and raise children. This perception is lost in the west, where it is seen that they are subordinate to men, but increasingly, woman are most prominent in the workplace and in other walks of life. Some guidelines for the West are: respect for privacy and the role of women in society; stand when a woman enters the room, and I understand that there are many households in different areas of residence, so that when you visit a house, you wouldn’t socialize with women.

    Things that men should not include:
    – Do not talk publicly professionals UAE National Women, unless it is business related. You will understand that when they are allowed to cross the limit, when approached to discuss other matters
    – Do not shake hands with a UAE National female, unless prompted.
    – Suffice it to say, not flirting, touching or embracing women
    – Do not look at women or maintain eye contact
    – Do not ask an Arab man about his wife or female members of his family

    of course, it’s better to be strict in yourself first, to understand the situation, and with Western values, and an increasingly diverse society to make up, things are changing, but traditions remain and what is best to take this into account.

    Is it weird to see the two words stylish and nerd in the same phrase: stylish nerd glasses? For some one who’s under the influence of conventionality, it sure is. For as long as one could remember, nerd has been considered dork. Mention of the word brings to mind immediately images of bookish professors or IT people with untrimmed hair and dirty cloth sitting in front of computers or with a heavy and thick book. That stereotypic view, however, needs to be changed in todays’ fasting developing era. Nerds are no longer your old skinny and unpopular dudes who have no chicks and eat their computer codes for lunches. Nerds are the emerging fashion trend setter with their eccentric behaviours and iconic smart looks. As a matter of fact, they are the new sexy. >

    With the nerds rising in the fashion field, it is only natural that stylish nerd glasses emerge as well. Unconventional color, exceptionally unique shape and always exaggerating and shocking use of material make them the new found favourite for many young people and their elderly alike. That budding momentum is only accelerated when The Big Bang Theory become a household name. The hit TV show surrounding the lives of a bunch of high IQ nerds and their hot neighbour pushed the nerd trend higher and made it an official thing. Now, people around the world are copying the dressing style and of course glasses wearing style of characters from the show. For instance, Leonard, the physicist from the show who is also one of the main character, is loved for his outstanding performance in the show and his adorable stylish nerd glasses.

    In this age, nothing speaks more to people’s heart and eyes than a pair of stylish eyeglasses. Combing that with the most current and most in buzzword in the business and you get stylish nerd glasses. And need I remind you: once you set your hands on one pair of such glasses, you will truly never regret. As those who know a thing or two about glasses say, once you go nerd, you will always be nerd.

    We know that health is important. However our busy lives may have affected the way we maintain a healthy lifestyle these days. We know eating balanced meals is important but we need to give some time consider how we eat too. Do we often much quickly and stuff food into the mouth in rush? This is definitely not healthy no matter what our excuses are. By taking time to bite and chew the food will make sure the food is properly channeled to the stomach. It helps the body to digest and benefit from the food we ate. There are many people who want to save time to complete more work by eating right in front of their computer while typing away. While it raises the work productivity, it certainly not raises the rate of a healthy lifestyle. If the lunch time is one hour, make us of the time to enjoy the food. Even the food can be finished less than an hour, take some time to rest and do things that are not connected to work. Our mind needs to be free to recharged and refreshed. In fact after much rest, it helps the productivity of our work.

    Most of us know smoking is not good for health. But even if you are not smoking make sure you are not sitting in the midst of people who smoke. Inhaling secondary smoke poses danger to your lungs. Even if they are your family, colleagues or friends, you could walk away politely or tell them you love your health very much.

    Another aspect to a healthy lifestyle guide is to cut down on the stress in our lives. Some stresses are good to motivate us but if it affects our emotions badly, it is time to do something about it. Find out what are the causes for the stress. If there are things that could be totally thrown away or eliminated, do it. If there are unresolved problems with a person or people, meet up and talk out a solution. If it is work-related stress, discuss with the boss or superior about ways to handle the tasks. Above all, try the best to clear off stress by voicing it up. Confide in someone that can be trusted to listen with a rationale mind and not gossip. Ask for counsel and advises.

    The medical industry needs to do a better job of protecting the hearts of American women. One of the many health challenges women have had to deal with was the scam of Hormone Replacement Therapy. Marketed by pharmaceutical companies as a cure-all for aging, HRT also claimed to protect against heart disease. In 2002 it was revealed that not only was this claim false, but in fact HRT increased risk of heart disease. Women were tricked into using a product that caused the very thing it claimed to prevent.

    Another blow to women’s heart health came when researchers at University of California, San Francisco discovered that many heart-related medical devices have not been adequately tested on women. Although women constitute just over 50% of the population, many devices are tested overwhelmingly on men before getting FDA approval.

    After looking through 123 studies for 78 different high-risk medical devices that were approved by the FDA, researchers found significant gender bias. The devices looked at were all for cardiovascular health, including heart valves, implanted defibrillators, pacemakers and stents. Since heart disease is the number one cause of death among women in the US, it is important that these devices perform safely and effectively on women as well as men.

    28% of the studies analyzed made no mention of gender. Men constituted 67% of the participants in the other studies. Due to differences in bleeding tendencies and size, men and women may have different reactions or side effects with these devices. “We do not know if a lot of medical devices currently on the market are as safe and effective in women as they are in men,” researcher Dr. Rita Redberg said.

    The results from their analysis should be surprising given that in 1994, the FDA released a mandate that manufacturers issue a gender-bias statement with each new product application, guaranteeing that the devices were tested in appropriate proportions of men and women. However, under half of the studies reviewed included that required statement. Of those that did, 26% actually showed sex-linked differences in safety and effectiveness.

    Since the 1980s, women’s health groups have been advocating for closer analysis of medication and medical devices and their effects on women. Men have been given preference as test subjects because they lack some of the hormonal variables that make women more “challenging.” This is an unacceptable excuse for sexist practices that endanger women. They deserve the same assurance that approved medical devices and equipment will be safe and effective when used on them, and the FDA needs to crack down and make this happen.
