Quote of the Day
September 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day and National Suicide Prevention Week is September 6-12, 2020 (always has Sept. 10th in the week)
If you find that you are having suicidal thoughts, please find help! Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem that you are having, and your family and friends that you leave behind will not recover from it easily, if at all.
I understand the feelings! Twice in my own life, I have felt the hopelessness where I just wanted it to end. Both times were involving medical issues that were caused by my employer. The hopelessness of them throwing me under the bus and putting their own liability above my health and well being was hard for me to deal with. The first time was a severe toxic chemical poisoning, that has made me chemical sensitive and I could possibly still come down with cancer from it. Up to that point, I had not believed that people could be so evil, that they would not do the right thing!
What got me through it was that I had two dogs, one probably an empath, who would come and sit with me during my darkest hours and would not leave my side. I remember thinking that if I was not on the planet that my kids could either go live with their Dad or my Parents and eventually they would be okay. I thought that no one in my family would take my dogs, and that they would definitely be separated as they were both big dogs. I couldn't imagine leaving my kids or dogs! As hard as that time in my life was, I got through it. Life got better!
The second time, it was determined that my suicidal thoughts were from the Vicodin that the doctor had given me to deal with my neck, shoulder, and back pain caused by sitting in an un-ergonomic chair that was not meant to be sat in for more than two hours a day. In an effort to save money, my workplace had purchased crappy chairs for everyone not in management. Once again, my employer put money over the value and safety of their employees!
Through my persistence that the chairs were the cause of my constant pain, eventually months later, all non management employees were given much better chairs to sit in. Of course, my employer was not at all happy with me for causing the expense of it all. As soon as I was able to, I retired early and got out of the toxic work environment I was in. Life is much better now! Push through your hardships when you encounter them and change the toxic circumstances in your life!
Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
The Month of September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month!
Childhood Obesity is on the rise! There are two strong predictors for obesity, according to University of Washington Dietician, Judy Simon. They are:
You often grab fried food from fast food restaurants.
You skip breakfast.
Students are rushing off to early high school classes, and skipping breakfast. Then at lunch, they pile into cars, and head to fast food restaurants, where they can eat off of the dollar menu cheaply. Forty-eight percent of teens eat fast food daily. How many of them are eating their 5 to 7 servings of fruits and vegetables daily?
Other predictors of obesity include:
Whether or not your family eats meals together.
A high consumption of sugared drinks.
The average seventeen year old teen, drinks over 13% of their calories in the form of sports drinks, fruit flavored drinks full of sugar rather than fruit, and sodas. Two-thirds of teens drink sodas daily, and most teens eat only one or two sit down meals a day, and snack for the rest of their meals.
