(Excerpt from an article on health and beauty – inside and out.)
The battle to shed unnecessary weight and the quest for a healthier, more youthful complexion isn’t’t one exclusive to women in later life. Women of all ages are on the same quest, as well they should be. It’s only natural to want to look and feel as good as possible.
Although all women face the struggle to ‘be all they can be,’ older women must also deal with the metabolic and physical changes they encounter with age. Their bodies are changing chemically. Sometimes those changes wreak havoc on their emotions and self-esteem.
For this group of women especially, regaining a healthy attitude about self and emotional well-being is every bit as important as improving physical fitness and external appearance. Here again, regardless of age, for a proper balance of health both the internal and external need to be addressed.
Below is a list of the ten attitudes for an improved, more youthful you, noted by owner and facilitator of a self-improvement school for older women and author, Dorothy Seiffert.
- Self-Awareness: According to Seiffert, self-awareness is the key for an objective view of self behavior. Self-awareness helps the person to think with intelligence before reacting. Understanding of self also helps one to better understand others. It helps you to examine your attitude and actions and develop a truer ‘this is who I really am inside.”
(Excerpt from an article on pet care; a guide to understanding your dog.)
Problems between dogs and their care givers arise from a multitude of reasons, most of which could be easily avoided. Inconsistent training, expecting too much too soon, harsh or inexperienced handling, and negligence are responsible for the majority of ongoing canine behavior problems.
Pet owners who take the time to become knowledgeable about their pet’s needs, and who build a solid foundation of love and trust with their pet, rarely experience serious behavior problems once training is complete. Pet owners who fail in these areas, however, are likely to instill fear, confusion, lack of confidence, and even depression in their pet.
Dogs are a lot like most people. They may goof now and then, but they invariably try and do their best. They truly want to please their care givers. A sensitive dog owner will realize this.
Sensitive dog owners will also realize that, like people, some dogs catch on more quickly than others; some are slower to learn. Some dogs are also more easily distracted than others. Some are naturally more aggressive, some more timid – requiring extra patience and encouragement during training.
