Why Is It Harder For Some People?!

Metaphor, Falling Down, Failure, Dry
In the same way that getting older is normally part of life, experiencing loss is also part of life. And while getting older can be difficult, experiencing loss can be something which is even harder to handle.
A Different Experience
There are, obviously, different types of loss, and while one kind of loss might not be too painful, another type can be. If someone was to lose a pet they might find it difficult to function for a couple of weeks, but if they were to lose a loved one, they might be like this for a whole lot longer.
The effect that losing a pet has on one person is subsequently not necessarily going to be the same as the effect it has on another. 1 reason that could be put forward here is that one person will have had a closer connection with their pet than the other.
A Broken Connection
Losing a loved one can make it hard for someone to work for a matter of months and then they might slowly start to settle down. What took place could be in their mind after this, but what occurred will not have made it impossible for them to deal with life in general.
For somebody else, it might not matter how many months or years pass, as they just won’t have the ability to continue with their life. While the individual above will have gradually been able to go through the gears and to get themselves moving again, this won’t have been possible for them.
One Reason
What this might show is that one individual has lost someone who was at the end of their life or who had been ill for a short time. It was then not a surprise that this person has passed , and this would have allowed them to get ready for the inevitable.
Unlike this individual, another could have lost a loved one who wasn’t at the end of their life and neither was their wellbeing in a bad way. If this was true, it would make complete sense as to why these two people have undergone different responses.
Another Reason
At exactly the exact same time, what might have played a big part in how these two individuals have reacted to a reduction is how emotionally developed they are. One person could be emotionally together, which will have enabled them to manage what took place.
For the other, they might not have been in a fantastic place to begin with, meaning that they might have been emotionally troubled until they experienced loss.
Another Factor
Then again, the reason why the former was able to move forward so quickly may have been a sign that they just pushed their feelings out of their point of awareness. It may then be inaccurate to say that they have a wholesome relationship with their emotions.
The fact that the latter has not been able to readjust to their life after a few months can then be regarded as a sign that they do have a healthy relationship with their emotions.
Closer to Home
When someone loses a parent, the experience of loss may have a different impact on them. However, though this is the case, the situations above can still apply to this sort of loss.
This implies, then, is that somebody may have known that it was only a matter of time before this took place and this enabled them to emotionally prepare, making it easier for them to come to terms with the loss. Or, someone might not have expected this to happen, making it incredibly difficult for them to handle what has taken place.
The Connection
The sort of relationship they had with this parent may also play a part in the way they feel. If they had a close bond with them, it is naturally going to be harder for them to manage what has taken place.
Likewise, if this was not the case and one did not have a close relationship with them, it may make it easier for them to handle the loss. This shows it that there are several factors involved.
Early Trauma
Yet, even if someone didn’t have a close connection with their parent that has passed on, it does not automatically indicate that this will make it easier for them to deal with. The loss of one of the parents can end up triggering wounds from their childhood years.
By way of instance, as this person is no longer around, they may wind up going into survival mode. So, irrespective of whether the reduction has resulted in them feeling unsafe and/or to be excessively preoccupied with how they will support themselves, it is very likely to show that something was triggered from their early years.
One is then not only going to have heavy heart afterwards; they will have a body that’s anything but calm. Still, this does not mean that they have been dependent on this parent for anything before, however.
Nonetheless, as a result of trauma that has remained in their body from their early years, now that this parent is no longer about it’s come up to the surface. This illustrates what took occur during someone’s early years can have a large impact how they respond to life events as an adult.
Awareness
If a person has lost a parent, and they can see that there is more to how they feel than that which has lately taken place, they may need to reach out for external support. This is something that can be provided by the aid of a therapist or a healer.

Fondant Icing

Red, Cakes, Flowers, Fondant
Many folks prefer using fondant icing to pay for their cakes. This is because it comes with many benefits. Long ago, people in the cake business only covered a tall cake with fondant, but this is no longer the case. Nowadays they cover even the shorter cakes.
Benefits of using fondant icing
The icing does not melt: Fondant has a consistency that looks like dough than icing, and because of this it will not melt when you place it outside or in a hot room. This makes it an ideal choice for wedding cakes because nobody wishes to spend a lot of money on a wedding cake which becomes cluttered before the end of the day.
You can use it to decorate the cake where you can come up with interesting designs such as fancy bows and other decorations that resemble real cars. With fondant, you can present your cake nearly any look that you want-including the 3-D layouts. Your imagination is only going to limit you.
You prevent dairy sensitivity: A significant number of people are sensitive to milk products. If you’re one of these people, you are on the lucky side as fondant doesn’t have milk. Due to this, you can enjoy your cake without worrying about developing sensitivity to lactose.
Tips on how to maintain your cake entirely wrapped up
For you to achieve a perfect cake covering you want to think about some tips.
Have a perfect ganache: there’s no way that your cake will have a perfect end if it’s a crude ganache.
You should roll it 3-4 mm or even thinner if your fondant permits you. To have a simple time you must make use of rolling pins with spacers.
Cut your cake neatly: To keep the bottom edge clean you need to neatly cut your fondant. To attain ideal results, you should make use of a pizza wheel. Also, use a super sharp knife or scalpel to trim the seam at the back of the cake. This plays a significant role in making the seam neat.
Add colour : To give your cake an interesting look, it is wise to add colour to it. For optimal results, you should add one drop of food color at a time and knead the color into your fondant. It’s common for the icing to feel tacky. All you will need to do is to gently rub it on the sticky area with the palm of your hand.
Seal the cracks: When you are applying the icing, it may break. When this occurs, you shouldn’t worry as all you will need to do, is patch the cracks using little water along with your finger.

Retirement

Granny, Elder, Flower, Senior, Elderly
Yikes! Water! Water! My hair’s on fire! Oh, it’s not my hair! It’s my bank account! I have completely smoked it! I inadvertently incinerated it during these last 30+ years of career building. If it’s any consolation, you have loads of company in your current miserable dilemma.
Alana Semuels, in a February 22, 2018 The Atlantic article, That is What Life Without Retirement Savings Looks Like, states that”… the median savings in a 401(k) plan for people between the ages of 55 and 64 is currently only $15,000, according to the National Institute on Retirement Security, a nonprofit. Other employees didn’t have access to a retirement plan through their employer. They are going from being near poor to poor.”
It is a sobering reality to learn that, according to a January 13, 2017 report of The Social Security Administration, 21 percent of married couples and 43 percent of single seniors rely on Social Security for 90 percent or more of their income. According to some 2015 Gallup poll, 36 percent of near-retirees say they expect Social Security to be a significant source of income once they retire.
Why and how are too many Boomers finding themselves in this essential crossroads of many decades ahead with little if any financial resources? Did you don’t establish a sound financial retirement plan early on in life? Are you busy setting your career and accomplishing your job objectives? Did raising a family, college expenses, parental sickness, a divorce, or some natural disaster sabotage your long-term fiscal plans?
That was then; this is now. Your current reality presents a sober wakeup call as to what to do now. Take heart. Breathe. And let’s look at options.
First, turn to an expert to assess your current real assets. There are many free services provided to senior citizens designed to help seniors get control of their financial affairs. Such topics as”Get Help Choosing a Financial Advisor,””Free Tax Preparation,” and”Money Management Resources,” – are intended to assist you determine the reality of your present financial status.
Another invaluable source for Boomers and seniors would be the Federal government. A Google search,”Government Services for Seniors” yields a gold mine of websites where seniors can retrieve concrete advice, in addition to material goods and services. To a great extent, Boomers are unaware of the existence of these resources or are reluctant to take advantage of them. Ironically, it’s we, the people, who have, through taxation, generously contributed to the development and availability of what the government is now able to provide. Now’s the time to dip into this abundant trough of resources which you, in fact, helped build!
Now that you understand, Dorothy, that”you are not in Kansas anymore,” you will need to decide which path of the yellow brick road to follow to best meet your current financial needs.
How and where can you conserve by making small changes in your present lifestyle?
How and where can you place your current limited assets to operate more efficiently?
How and where can you augment your current income by work, either full or part time, either on your own or someone else, either doing what you did before, or in some brand new venture.
Through clever saving, corrected lifestyle, and innovative work strategies, you can and will survive, possibly thrive, in retirement, despite limited retirement income and savings.

Giving Your Best

Love, Couple, Two, Lavstori, Sweethearts
I like writing about’Relationships’ as it’s one of my favourite subjects. Honestly, today relationships have proven to be like the’changing of clothes’ each day. The gist of all is: ‘the changing times’. But if you aren’t able to foster or nurture 1 relationship, then you aren’t likely to nurture the other. Though, there is one exception in my view to what I just stated; it’s not to target those relationships that are abusive, where the victim female or male is physically or emotionally abused. We get to live life once, and it doesn’t mean that we succumb to any connection that is torturous in nature.
After conducting a brief research study on the topic, it’s realized that different authors have made varying observations regarding this subject. Each author expresses his/her own opinion as they perceive and define’relationship’.
Turn’on’ your Positive Psychology in Relationships
Author Carr in’Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness and Human Strengths’ said that positive psychology is related to the positive emotions and affection in your relationship. When both the spouses work through their conflicts, and sort them out by communicating respectfully and forgiving each other’s mistakes; then they tend to obtain high levels of satisfaction in their relationship. This being one aspect, the other is the endurance and perseverance to work at your relationship. If you love and care about your partner then it’s obvious that you will work towards sharing a positive connection.
Quit seeking Perfection in your partner
The understanding is important that we are human beings, and not one of us is perfect. Therefore, we can’t expect perfection in our partner. There will be certain behaviors that may irritate, or there may be some weaknesses that are too tough to accept, but the bottom-line is you have to deal with those behaviours in a positive manner without humiliating or demeaning your spouse. Rather than reacting impulsively to those behaviors, you can await the ideal time to talk with your partner about certain behaviors that seem bothersome. The confrontational talk needs to be non-judgmental, so that your partner is a excellent receiver to your concerns.
Overcome the Temptation
As we are living in a new age it is now easy to change partners or move on without giving a thought to your connection. The biggest temptation nowadays seems to be’gap-fillers’. Gap-fillers are those’so-called friends’ who create an entry on your life at just the wrong moment. When you face challenging times in your marriage or dating relationship, then it’s normal that you have a friend who acts as your spouse replacement. He/She is filled with all the great talks, assurances and might even want you to believe life is worth living, so why live with a partner you are not pleased with?
But if you think really deep, it can be examined or assessed that if you can’t live or put up with one partner, then there isn’t any guarantee that you have the ability to put up with a new spouse. The beginning days of a new and rosy relationship may seem to be the best, but you never know when the same relationship may turn to your own worst.
The best advice once your marriage or relationship isn’t working would be to wait patiently and to give yourself and spouse the opportunity to work out whether it’s truly over, and for real reasons so that you don’t get a chance to repent in life for missing out on the best.

It’s accurate and the funny thing about it is that if you follow these easy instructions and recipe you will be astounded and even shocked at how good it tastes.
First the sort of Top Ramen Noodles you purchase is important. I recommend that the Maruchan Ramen Noodles with zero transfat. I also recommend throwing away the taste pack as it has MSG in it and you know that is not good for you. [Harvard Health Study 1999].
Simply boil some water and 2 of those packages and drop them into the boiling water and wait for 3.5 minutes. Next remove the noodles into a frying pan and also soy sauce in it.
Pink Alaskan Salmon
Diced White Onions
Diced Green Bell Peppers

Cook the noodles until they are brown in colour like in the Chinese Restaurant. Be sure to keep stirring it around a lot to make sure everything gets cooked evenly and to assure all of the spices and such make it in the flavor of the noodles. Next let it cool a bit and stick it onto a plate and eat it. It will taste great.

Take the stairs

Stairs, Input, Climb, Industrial

Did you know that frequently using stairs could save your life? Studies show that climbing only eight flights of stairs a day can improve your health and decrease your risk of early death by as much as a third. So popular has this kind of exercise become that you can even find free smartphone programs to count the number of steps you climb and record how many calories are burned off. Builds bone and muscle strength
Stair climbing is basically a more strenuous form of walking. Because you have to pull against gravity, it requires greater effort, so you get more of a workout. The exercise is great for your body, increasing your bone density, strength and muscle tone – so the odds of developing osteoporosis is considerably reduced. Helps your heart
By increasing your heart rate, stair climbing helps prevent blocked arteries and high blood pressure. This boost to your cardiovascular system lowers the risk of succumbing to serious conditions like heart disease, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Aids weight loss
This astonishingly vigorous form of exercise actually burns more calories per minute than running. And the good news is the heavier you are, the more calories you will expend. Even once you go upstairs in a normal pace, you are going to use at least twice the amount of energy than if you were walking on level ground – so you may soon find your waistline shrinking if you use the stairs regularly. Relieves stress
Going up stairs will also improve your mental condition, as the physical exertion releases pain-killing endorphins – the feel-good hormones that release tension and give your spirits a lift. The regular exercise will raise your energy levels, making you generally feel much better about the world.

  1. Fits in with active lifestyles You can start with just one or two flights if you like, and increase slowly. Even if you’re a busy commuter, you may use staircases in public places like train stations, office buildings and multi-storey car parks. Needless to say, unless you live in a bungalow or ground-floor flat you will also be able to practise in the comfort of your own home.
    You do not have to be a fresh-air fiend to enjoy climbing stairs. No special skills, sporting training or ability is required – and you won’t have to talk about a sweaty changing room with strangers.
    Because stair climbing is relatively simple to build into your life, you should be able to incorporate it into your routine without too many problems. Regular exercise can make a real difference to people’s long-term health, so finding an activity that you are able to sustain over the years will be invaluable for your exercise levels. Costs nothing
    One of the best things about stair climbing is that it is completely free. No sports club fees or gym membership, no equipment or special clothing to buy… it is just you, as well as many steps as you feel able to handle.
    So, which types of stairs are best for climbing? Any long flight of stairs provides the chance for a good workout, even though some are better than others. Wooden stairs are more comfortable than concrete or metal ones as their treads provide more shock absorption, and carpeted staircases are better still. Curved stairs are just like straight ones for providing exercise. Even attic stairs and space saver staircases have their applications, provided that you hold on to the handrail and don’t try to go too fast. If you have to use an escalator, walk all the way up it. As the steps are deeper than those in an average staircase, it will still do you good.
    Aim for between three and five stair-climbing sessions every week to get the most out of your new regime. If you’re not used to exercise you should start gradually, perhaps just climbing for five or 10 minutes at first. You may work up to thirty minutes or an hour , if you’re feeling confident.
    Can anyone exercise this way?
    People with hip or knee problems aren’t advised to climb stairs as the stepping action can aggravate their condition. This is particularly true when going down, as the joints come under additional strain. Anyone concerned about their health should have a word with their doctor before going ahead.

Heat Stroke

Image result for heat stroke

Heat stroke, also known as sunstroke, is a dangerous malady that occurs when your internal body temperature rises above 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius). Caused by high temperatures, if gone untreated, could lead to damage to many of your internal organs, including your brain. Avoiding this, especially in the hot summer months, is very important. The simplest way to ensure staying healthy is by drinking a lot of water. Drinking water can be made more enjoyable by adding flavors, or by motivating yourself with a reward for drinking more than 8 cups of water each day.
Heat Stroke Symptoms
Vomiting
Headache
Muscle weakness
Not sweating in the heat
Seizures
Nausea
Fast pulse or rapid breathing
Fainting
Heat Stroke Prevention
Stay hydrated! Staying hydrated prevents you from losing too much liquid in your body by sweating.
Wear loose clothing. Just as you want to wear as little clothing as possible, wearing loose, billowy clothes is truly much better for keeping you cool because of how small it really touches your body, while also protecting you from the sun’s harmful rays. This should go without saying, but sunscreen should be applied regularly, and only contain SPF 30 or higher.
Try to avoid being outdoors. Less exposure to the sun means less risk.
Try not to drink very much coffee or alcohol. Both of these drinks are dehydrating, and being hydrated is one of your most important defenses against heat stroke.
Avoid heavy exercise
Invest in a buff. For a floor fan, try this bestselling, oscillating one.
Eating foods with heavy water concentrations, such as watermelon, cucumbers, and celery
Heat Stroke First Aid
Call 911 immediately if you suspect someone has heat stroke. The more time you wait for medical treatment, the worse the condition.
Keep them as cool as you can. Move them to an air-conditioned area, if you’re able to, or at least as far out of direct sunlight as you can find.
Put them in cold water, such as a shower or bathtub. Natural bodies of water work also, so long as they are cold and the patient has no chance of drowning.
Put them in an ice bath, BUT only if they got heat stroke . It is dangerous to place children or senior citizens in an ice bath, and particularly if it wasn’t sustained while exercising.
Place ice packs in sensitive regions near blood vessels. Ice packs are best round the neck, armpits, groin, back, and inner knees. You can buy a pack of 24 disposable ice packs, and keep them in your first aid kit in case of an emergency.
Have them drink lots of water
Assess their body temperature regularly
Make sure they are lying down, with their feet slightly propped up
Higher Risk for Heatstroke Included People with:
Diabetes
Alcoholism
High blood pressure
Physically exhausting tasks, such as gardening
Recreational drug use
Mental illnesses
Certain medicines, such as antihistamines, diuretics, SSRIs, antipsychotics, and heart medicine.
Never leave children or pets in the car on a hot day. Between the year 2000, and 2017, over 500 children have died from being left in the vehicle. Pets, especially dogs, are even more susceptible to heat. The inside of a parked car can quickly reach 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Leaving a window cracked does not do very much, and it’s been recommended that you bring your pet to the storefront, and leave it in the shade with a bowl of water, if possible. Kids have sometimes been abandoned in the back seats of cars. There are many ways to avoid this, such as leaving your wallet in the backseat next to them. If a child is left on purpose in a car, the protector can be liable to prosecution.
Swimming may be a fantastic way to keep cool, but always remember to drink water and apply sunscreen. Another way to keep cool and have fun this summer is to research some. Museums and libraries typically have air-conditioning, along with some interesting things you might not have seen before. Heat exhaustion is often a precursor to heat stroke, so in case you feel fatigued after spending some time in sunlight, get to someplace cool as soon as possible, and start rehydrating.

Don’t worry, sleep

Sleep, Bed, Woman, Bedroom, Sleeping

You need enough sleep. You need enough sleep so as to function and so as to restore and rejuvenate your mind and your body.
Tens of millions of people suffer from insomnia and other sleep problems. Stress, worry and fear can be major contributors to sleep (and non-sleep) problems. It is very common for people to toss and turn all night or sleep too few hours or not sleep in any way. This may often be due to one’s mind continuing to focus (at top speed) on problems rather than shutting down at night and resting. I had a job that required me to work in an extremely high level, continually, all day long. From 7AM to 7PM. I couldn’t go to sleep at night as my mind was still racing, reviewing the day’s work (and problems) and planning the next day’s work (and difficulties ). The lack of sleep started to interfere with my ability to work at work at the required high level. If this continued, I wouldn’t be able to do my job effectively and I would soon be tired, and fired. I had to get more sleep.
When I realized it was my head that was keeping me awake until 1AM – 2AM, I decided I had to do something about it. What did I do? How can I solve the problem? What I did was make a bargain with my brain. The deal was that when it was time to go to sleep I’d take all my troubles, worries and anxieties from my mind and put them down on the nightstand next to my bed. I promised my brain that all my troubles, worries and anxieties would still be there on the nightstand in the morning when I woke up and I’d pick all my problems off the nightstand, place them back in my mind, and my brain could begin spinning and rushing and worrying all over again. After a few nights of trying this it began to work. I fooled my mind. I trained my brain. But when it was time to go to sleep, I was able to lay down, put my troubles and worries and anxieties aside, and go to sleep. And in the morning, I was refreshed and ready to face the day. This was decades ago and ever since that time, when I get into bed, I lay down my troubles. And have no trouble going to sleep at night.
In addition, I discovered something else; a lot of the things I worried about at night disappeared or diminished when I went to pick them up off the nightstand the morning after.
When it is time to go to sleep, the day is finished. Put your worries down. When day is done and it is time for sleep, there is nothing more you can actually do right now about your present problems, worries and fears. Put them down on the nightstand, or, if you want, put an empty box next to your bed to put your problems in at night. Do not worry, all of your problems, worries and anxieties will still be there in the morning. Or not. Meanwhile, you can go to sleep.
And, if you wish, you can even write down your concerns on a piece of paper and physically put them in the box. Or not. Any color. It may help if the box has a lid and you can leave it open to easily put in your worries, problems and anxieties. No, it does not have to be a massive box. Unless you’ve got a good deal of worries.
