Bedtime Stories For Children

A common advice given to a parent by counselors is to read to your child from a keen age. Reading is synonymous with bonding. As you speak to your child in your mother tongue, make sure to read to the child in the English language. The universal language helps the child to build his knowledge and vocabulary. Fables on animals, adventures entailing ghosts, dragons and volcanoes are much exciting for a child. Narration is truly an art, but do not get dismayed if you do not possess ultra oratory skills. For a child, parents are their world. Here any story from your end is sweet sounding to them.

Creative individuals can partake in building stories about simple things in life. Making up a story about a family and what chores each individual does, registers value in the child. If you include that your helper and driver are essential peripherals than run your home, the child masters the quality of respecting people and their work. English literature has exclusive books catering to children's story. Bed time stories are special. If your child is below one year, you could go on to narrate a simple nursery rhyme. For eg Johnny Johnny – Yes Papa, although clichéd can be fabricated into a nice story about a child who ate too much sugar and spoiled his teeth. So much so, he had visit the dentist, thus inculcating the importance of food intake and also dental hygiene. Another virtual that can be ticked off here is honesty (as Johnny initially says, "No Papa") You will be surprised, that with a gentle reminder of the same story, there will be no tantrums experienced while brushing the teeth twice a day!

It is termed that boys love adventure and trekking kind of macho storylines and girls love candies and fairies. But keep the bed time story general. Before narration make sure you have no pending chores to attend or else drifting 'elsewhere' will make you child disinterested. A little preparation is a must. If not, then stick to reading stories. For children who are yet to speak, it is a good idea to show them picture stories and later encourage them to point out the characters. Please be enthusiastic about the big eyed surprises, animation and occasional squeals.

In case your child is apprehensive of the witch or the green dragon emitting fire, is scary, then do not shut the book but explain to them about 'Good and Bad' things. They like to see their hero master over the demons. Do include teaching qualities and a little about mythology for dramatic narrations. Let them understand the moral of the story and the healing power of prayer before sleep.

Health is the Key to Happiness

Do you believe in the saying health is wealth? Some would agree with this and some would not. This is an old saying, but in my own belief, health is certainly more important than wealth because health is the key to our happiness. Each of us wants to live life to the fullest and no matter how many our money is if we are not healthy then we can never enjoy our lives. Health is a condition of a person in all aspects, a level of function and efficiency of an organism. Health is also defined as being a state of complete physical, mental and social well being, with the absence of disease or infirmity.

Each one of us has its own routine to achieve a healthy body. Ensure your health by doing the following:

Eating a well balanced diet is very important and one important factor for health. Your health sincerely depends on whatever you eat. If you do not watch what you are eating, it just means you do not really care about your body. If you want to feel good on the inside, start eating healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables and minimize or better yet avoid eating oily, greasy, salty, fatty and high sugar foods as these would cause certain diseases. In this way you can improve your healthy lifestyle.

Make sure you get enough sleep. A normal average sleep of an adult is six to eight hours. Sleeping can be considered as an important factor for a healthy lifestyle, but avoid oversleeping because it can also be bad as it will make a person lazy and out of touch. Also, lack of sleep can cause sickness. Having enough sleep does not only make you feel great but it is also a good way for you to look healthy and beautiful.

Exercise also one of the most common health benefits. We all need to move because that is the basis for all things we do. The energy we need comes from the foods we eat, it falls into 3 types: protein, fats and carbohydrates, and we need these to become energetic and to function well. By performing exercise, our body starts the beneficial process of metabolism. This process uses fat stored in our body part as part of the catalyst needed. So by performing exercise, your body is burning fat.

Take supplements and vitamins- Vitamin C has always been claimed to be an essential nutrient for overall health and well being. We can not produce our own vitamins so we have to take supplement or eat foods that are rich with vitamins. Fruits and vegetables are very rich with vitamins and nutrients that our body needs, so it is necessary to add them to what we eat every day. Recent study has discovered breakthrough evidence that Vitamin C has a positive effect in preventing heart diseases and cancer. Regular taking of Vitamin C also reduces cholesterol and gallstones, lowering the risk of stroke and diabetes. …

How To Prepare For A Wisdom Tooth Extraction

The upper and lower third molars are also called your wisdom teeth. These teeth are located at the very back of your mouth. They are usually the last teeth to surface in the mouth. They usually appear between the ages of 17 and 24 years old.

Some people have their wisdom teeth for their entire life. However, most people today opt to have their wisdom teeth removed. Some people have their wisdom teeth taken out even before they break through the gums.

People who live with their wisdom teeth for their lifetime usually do not experience any complications. But for some people, their wisdom teeth never erupt. And this can lead to swelling, gum ulcers and pain. Once the wisdom tooth becomes impacted and it starts pressing up against another tooth, it can damage the tooth beside it or the jawbone. These two are the main reasons why people usually have to undergo oral surgery to have a wisdom tooth removed.

Having a wisdom tooth removed is not as easy or simple as undergoing a regular tooth extraction. It requires a surgery since the dentist will open up the gum tissue over the tooth and take out any bone that is covering the tooth. The dentist will then separate the tissue that connects the tooth to the bone. Then the dentist will remove the tooth. The tooth is usually cut into smaller pieces to make it easier to remove. Once the tooth is removed, you may need stitches. Depending on your dentist, these stitches can dissolve over time or you will have to go back to the clinic to have them removed.

If you will be having your wisdom tooth removed sometime soon, below are some tips you should follow to properly prepare for this procedure:

Inform your dentist all the medicines and natural health products you take. Some of the medicines and supplements you drink daily can increase the risk of bleeding or interact with anesthesia. If you take blood-thinners, such as warfarin, clopidogrel, or aspirin, your doctor and dentist may ask that you stop taking these for a few weeks before and after the procedure.

Schedule the procedure at the right time. Schedule your appointment on a Thursday or Friday so that you can have the weekend off to rest and recuperate.

Stock up on soft food such as gelatin, yogurt, pudding, and cottage cheese. You will be prescribed a soft diet for several days after the surgery so stock up on these food items. You can also eat some soup, but only if it is served warm, not hot. Avoid foods that are crunchy and require a lot of chewing.

Finally, make sure you bring a companion when you go to the dental clinic. Make sure you have someone to drive you home since the anesthesia and pain medicine administered or given to you will make it unsafe for you to drive.…

How Long Does Acne Last Without Using Medicine?

Some people are wondering if they can get away with acne without any form of medication. The question, probably, must have arisen following reports of chemicals in medicines causing many adverse reactions. Or maybe it is being asked out of pure interest. Regardless of the nature of the question, I would honestly say, yes, it is possible to get rid of acne even if you do not take antibiotics. The body, after all, has the power to heal itself, given the right circumstances, but the question is, how long is it going to happen?

There are not going to be midnight miracles, certainly! And it is not going to be a simple walk in the park. Putting reliance on medicine aside, the acne sufferer has to have a lot more discipline than necessary. To fight acne without any medications, you need to prep your body so that it will be able to heal on its own. You may need to make some lifestyle changes, any one of which takes a great amount of discipline.

Here's how discipline relates to some lifestyle changes that can fight acne:

Discipline and Eating Right. Discipline is required for you to eat the right kinds of foods that can prevent acne flare-ups. Raw vegetables and fruits have plenty of nutrients to fight acne (among others), but how many of us actually enjoy eating vegetables in their raw state? How many of us are tempted to gorge on street foods, deep-fried foods, and junk foods, instead? Avoiding these foods and making wise foods choices are a matter of discipline, are they not?

Discipline and Avoiding Stress . Stress can trigger acne flare-ups, and it takes a great amount of discipline to go through the entire day without rushing into things, worrying, feeling the world is coming to an end, and you have eight hands instead of two and three heads instead of one so you end up doing more work in less time.

Discipline and Exercise . Forcing yourself to exercise on a regular, if not daily, basis, requires discipline. Starting on an exercise program may not really be a problem, but staying on the program long enough to experience results can be if you do not have enough discipline.

That said, discipline does not grow overnight. It can take weeks for the body to adjust to these lifestyle changes, so in reply to the question how long does acne last without using medicine, I will honestly say that you simply ignore on your body's ability to heal (plus a few home remedies). But even though it may take this amount of time to get rid of acne, the best thing is that you may be able to solve your acne problem for good. By living a healthy lifestyle, you are increasing your body's resistance to bacterial invasions and infections such as those thought about by acne, so there can be no recurring acne anymore. …

Our Son Beat His Addiction

I know that most people have negative opinions of not only drug addicts but their families too. When a family member insists they did not know their son, their daughter, their brother, their wife, or anyone else was using drugs, a lot of people find it hard to believe. The signs had to be there, right? Well, I can tell you that is simply not true. When my son nearly overdosed, I was as shocked as anyone. I knew I had to sort through my own feelings, but first I did some research on Abbeycare rehab clinics because I knew that his needs had to come first.

I had heard of these rehab clinics, but I did not know the first thing about them because, well, why would I? Those places are for people who have problems, not for people who come from good families. My entire view of drug addiction has changed, and Abbeycare has played a huge role in that. My husband and I got our son admitted there within a day of his near overdose. We were not playing around with this, because he means the world to us. We knew he needed help with his addiction, and we knew that this was the place to do it.

Their website gave us a wealth of information, and the people we talked to during the intake process gave us even more valuable information. We were told exactly the process that our son would go through, which was distressing to hear as a mother. I knew he had to go through this though to get better, and that is exactly what happened. This changed all of our lives, and it opened up our eyes to just how problematic addiction is. Our son is now a counselor helping other people who have addiction issues, and he knows that he owes Abbeycare everything for this second chance at life. We all do!…

Site Safety Requirements – Industrial Health & Safety

Let's begin talking about site safety by mentioning the safety equipment that needs to be worn by everyone on site at the time. When thinking about these important tools, the first thing that is most likely to pop into people's minds is the safety helmet. These tough and durable pieces of equipment are cushioned on the inside for comfort and added protection and can be strapped to a person's head so as not to fall off at an inportune time. The helmets prevent injury from falling objects, low-hanging scaffolds or pipes, etc. Another piece of equipment that is important, especially to those working with machines, is safety goggles. Flying sparks are a common sight in most industrial sites, and without the proper protection over the eyes, burns and serious injury, including blindness, can occur. Among these important pieces of safety equipment are ear buds. These should be worn by everyone on an industrial site in order to prevent hearing loss or damage of the inner ear due to loud noises that are typical when working among a mass of machinery.

One of the most common injuries on site is a fall. Workers who need to be placed on scaffolding for one reason or another, or who work on walkways, are at serious risk of falling, which, needless to say, could lead to serious injuries. With a proper PPE in place, worker fall accidents can be reduced significantly. These are pieces of piping set above wait level that will keep workers safe on small platforms at tall heights. Fires are also a worry at industrial sites, and so proper safety requirements must be put into place in case of a fire. These include sprinkler systems, fire extinguishers placed throughout the site, and an escape route that workers can take in case of an emergency. Worker health risks on site are many, and there are times when a body simply can not take much more of the strenuous conditions on an industrial site. If a heart attack, stroke, or any such instance occurs, an industrial site must have a first aid station ready and CPR and First Aid certified individuals on site at all times.

As you can see, the dangers of working in an industrial site are many, which make mandatory safety requirements a must in order to ensure worker safety. While there are other dangers on the site that can be noted (slip and fall, etc.) and equipment that can be used (steel boots, etc.) what has been covered here are important safety requirements for any industrial site. When followed, workers are ensured a safer place to work, although it would be difficult to eliminate the safety hazards completely. …
