Be Happy - Make Time For Fun

Image
Be Happy - Make Time For Fun Life Coach Marie Wetmore discusses the critical yet often forgotten ingredient for a happy life: fun. When fun and enjoyment become a low priority, you'll find that a month can go by without the vital fun that helps you be a happy person. Marie suggests a simple, actionable strategy to be happy: scheduling fun into your life on a regular basis. Here's the challenge: carve out time in your schedule every day for two weeks. This is time for you to be happy by going out and doing something purely for enjoyment. Part of the challenge is simply to create happiness every day. But the other part of the exercise is to help you learn to be more efficient and effective with your other commitments so you can experience the success of getting in control of your own schedule. With good time management you maximize your effectiveness so that you can take care of your high priorities. In other words, the goal of being happy, like all other goals, depen

Depression - Recognizing The Signs And Seeking Help

Image
Depression - Recognizing The Signs And Seeking Help Many people think they know the symptoms of depression.  But it can be tricky. You can be depressed for a long time without even knowing it. The most obvious symptoms of depression may be well known.  Feeling sad all the time and unmotivated, having thoughts of suicide, and withdrawing from your friends, are the best known signs. But in reality, depression symptoms are much broader than this.  People do their best to cope with being depressed, and so sometimes you can be in the middle of a rather severe illness without even knowing it. One of the most classic symptoms of depression, for example, is depressed mental function. A lot of the time, people who are depressed go around in a mental fog all of the time. They may not even be consciously aware they are depressed, but they can't seem to get anything done. Basically, rather than facing their feelings of anxiety and depression, they go into a listless state where they

Friday Fish Recipe - Blackened Fish - Nice and Easy

Image
Friday Fish Recipe - Blackened Fish - Nice and Easy Blackened fish is quick and easy:  fish, spice, butter, skillet, and—boom—you're done. Blackening is a cooking technique used in the preparation of fish and other foods. Often associated with Cajun cuisine, this technique was popularized by chef Paul Prudhomme. The food is usually dipped in melted butter and then dredged in a mixture of herbs and spices, usually some combination of thyme, oregano, chili pepper, peppercorns, salt, garlic powder and onion powder. It is then cooked in a very hot cast-iron skillet. This recipe uses a little less butter and it is a bit more healthy. "I'm using mahi mahi with this dish, but any fish will do. A traditional blackened fish is dredged in melted butter before the spices are applied, which is yummy, but I think the fish does all right with just the spices—we'll save the butter for the pan. Any combo of spices will do. I especially like ginger powder on my fish—give

Healthy Teen Relationships

Image
Healthy Teen Relationships Relationship violence is a highly under-reported phenomenon. Teens are often reluctant to talk about violence that may be occurring in their relationship because they associate it with love. Prevalence of teen dating violence has been estimated as low as 9% and as high as 57%. The most highly reported statistic is that 1 in 3 teens will experience some form of abuse in a dating relationship. This video is public service announcement which was created for parents of teens to raise awareness about teen dating violence. Teens in dating relationships can experience issues with power and control. These may be in the form of hitting, slapping, pushing, verbal insults, or more subtle forms of intimidation like controlling behaviors such as the text messages shown in the video.

WiseWolf on the Discuss HR Blog - Career Development for the Over 60s Today a post from me appears on the UK's premier HR Blog, Discuss HR.  Here is an extract  "First I have to admit to a personal interest here; I am well over sixty. Second, I have to make a confession; I still don’t really know what I want to do when I grow up. David Willetts , the higher education minister, has spoken recently about encouraging older people take up degree courses. Quite a lot of over 60s take up degree courses already of course – in 2011/12, nearly 2,000 started a first degree. Most of them were with the Open University with “The Arts Past and Present” being the most popular course, apparently. But a history of art course is not what Mr Willets (who was known as “Two Brains” to my generation of Civil Servants) has in mind. No, what dear old David wants us to do is to “train”, so that we can cope with the pressures we will face as we work “well into our sixties”. His comments follow
