Dealing with the whole

30 Nov

Trying to cure part without looking at the whole, can be compared with a chair without a leg and a lamp without a shade. They go together. Success comes when we’re looking at the whole of something in its entirety, not the half.

Half of something means we could end up with a conclusion that won’t necessarily be right. Stepping back shows us the whole, a full side that gives us the tools to incorporate everything …

A better understanding

28 Nov

We will fail to get on with others without a mutual understanding between us. We can’t have a mature conversation when the person we’re trying to reason with is generally irritable, not in the mood, or simply irritated by something we’ve said.

It doesn’t mean what we said undermined how they felt. It’ll be what they’re feeling at that time, coming into play. What we say can emotionally tip them over the edge. Life’s a bit like that, but with …

Emotional eating

27 Nov

We’re struggling to cope, everything’s wrong, nothing’s going right. We need a pickup, something that makes us feel better, something that bridges the gap, so we reach for the biscuit tin. We know it isn’t health, but it makes us feel better, right?

Emotional eating is a way to right what’s wrong and although we know it’s already bad for our health, it also means we’ll pile on the pounds. Whether we’re using emotional eating as a way of …

I deal with Auditory Perception Difficulties, which means I find it difficult to process explanations and directions. Where memory is essential for us to hold information long enough to make …

Grudges

22 Nov

It would be so easy for us to hold a grudge because of everything we deal with, but what’s the point? Unfortunately, when we hold a grudge, we unconsciously hope the pain we feel is felt by the person we have a grudge against. It’s the nature of what a grudge is.

The irony is that holding a grudge doesn’t make us feel any better about ourselves, neither does a grudge make our circumstances any better. Holding a grudge doesn’t help us change anything …

The Keele study claims to be the first direct link between Alzheimer’s disease and elevated brain aluminium following occupational exposure, with mounting evidence to suggest that chronic …
