A Valentine’s message for us: start by loving yourself and your family
Valentine’s Day is a time when people around the world celebrate by showing appreciation for the people they love or adore. It falls on February 14 each year. It is usually associated with romantic love, with millions and millions of valentine gifts being exchanged each year.
But is it true, To Love Someone, Do You Really Need to Love Yourself First? Let’s discuss the topic in this article..So, hop in…..
Have you ever seen yourself in the mirror and wondered who this person actually is!! Everyone in their life goes through a certain crucial period of their time. And it depends on how we tackle the problem and come out of it happily and strong!!
“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.” Anonymous
Well, at every stage an individual will face problems and we need to put ourselves foremost strong before any kind of problem.
Don’t you think, kid’s health matters more than their grades!! I sometimes feel, thankful to god to let me through this stage of schooling and not let me face today’s never-ending challenges. Well, the challenges begin right from the kinder garden and remain till you hold a degree in your hand. Exams are not just quarterly or half-yearly now, they almost happen every week. This makes the kid go through a lot in terms of mental and physical stress.
I have observed my own nieces and nephews not able to consume much of food due to the pressure of doing well in the exams. There is so much competition outside that sometimes even getting 100% marks cannot get the kids to their desired career. Thus, this makes it clear that mental pressure is responsible for additional physical pressure and ultimately leads to poor health.
Well, as a parent or as a kid, it is our duty to make us or them understand, grades do not matter much as compared to their health. A healthy balanced diet is always the key to improving your lifestyle and let your kids love themselves.
During stressful days, do not put the burden on yourself or on your kids making them eat their not so favorite fruits or vegetables. Try adding more of their favorites food or camouflage, not so favorite ones in the roti dough or mix vegetables or in the juice and give them. For that specific period of time, you can provide your kid a well-researched multivitamin or a formula that can help improve your kid’s concentration to prepare him or her for the exams.
Love yourself when you enter TEENAGE
Once you reach your teen years, you do face a lot of problems. But, it can differ from the school days. For girls, weight and skin health will matter the most than any other thing. I am sure you all remember those fair ads and we so used to connect with it. Everyone wishes to look good and why not!! All of us got all the human rights to do so, but my suggestion would be to do so, keeping overall health in mind.
But it gets worrisome when they overdo certain things and lead to affecting their overall health. Eating disorders are very common among teenagers. Many of them consume fast food for the taste and then just throw up. This is done very often as they do keep getting good results. But, ultimately leads to anorexia and lack of nutrients making them look pale and dull.
Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by weight loss (or lack of appropriate weight gain in growing children) difficulties maintaining an appropriate body weight for height, age, and stature; and, in many individuals, distorted body image.
Losing weight is an art and should be painted well to achieve the desired weight with all the required nutrients going hand in hand. For a teen, careful counseling is necessary and a multivitamin with a proper weight loss diet plan can be a good start and will definitely help them achieve their goal. Be open to discuss with your children about their problems, in this article we have covered weight loss issues they face, but this is the crucial stage where they face a lot of pressure.
Love yourself when you become an ADULT
Adulthood comes with great responsibility. Either you got a great job or you struggling with your business, you may be married or are a parent, etc. The expectation keeps increasing day by day and this leads to immense pressure. One thing we all need to understand is to love ourselves and to set the expectations right. This will not only help us to be clear in what we wish to have and what we can achieve. Many of these expectations can put stress on your organs and specifically it can impact your kidneys and heart. Try to consume wholesome food every day, which will not only reduce your stress but also help improve your concentration and efficiency. Probiotics and Fish oil if taken together can help achieve your goals without putting a lot of strain on your precious organs.
Love yourself when you become a RETIRED
Many times, you are not aware of the changes and requirements as you move towards older age and continue to follow the same routine. This makes you suffer immeasurably. As you age, your diet also changes. Your digestive system slows down with age, and hence it is important to include high fiber vegetables and fruits. The right amount of nutritious food that suits your system is the key to a healthy life. In fact, many illnesses that befall people in their old age can be managed through a proper and regular diet. When you getting old, you face a lot of problems such as bone health, hormonal imbalance, high sodium – this happens due to different needs and declining rates of absorption of vitamins and minerals. Try taking GNC multivitamin which is designed specifically for men and women above the age of 50. There would be no need to take any other vitamin supplements, just one will do.
