About Koalas

Koala, Australia, Koala Bear, Lazy, Rest

The Koala Bear is usually recognized by its own fluffy little body and cute innocent looking face. Native to Australia it resides only in particular areas of Australia.

The Koala Bear is not really a bear, but thought to be mistaken as one by the European settlers in the late 1800’s.

The Koala’s in the south are generally much larger than those from the North. They tend to have thicker coats of fur to keep them warm in the cool winters. The Queensland koalas have a tendency to be smaller with less fur.

The basic diet of the Koala is Eucalyptus leaves which may grow in the tall gum trees of Australia or low lying Eucalyptus plants. There are many distinct varieties of Eucalyptus of that only several will the koala feed . The leaves are hard to chew, high in fiber and low in protein. Together with a reduced metabolic rate the koala must conserve energy and does this by sleeping up to 19 hours a day. When awake 3 of those 5 hours have been spent eating.

Koalas communicate with bellowing to each other and although appear to be a docile creature, they can be quite vicious.

They have sharp teeth and claws which aid in climbing and chewing the tough diet they need. Rarely do they drink water, although will do so if absolutely necessary.

Breeding period is during the Australian spring/summer from around September to March. A koala can have one pup a year up until around 12 years of age.

Gestation is 35 days old, where the tiny pup is born blind and with no fur. It makes it way to the back facing pouch where it feeds off the two teats for another 6 months. Babies will make their way from the pouch around 8 months and cling onto its mother’s back. Sometimes a koala will have off its mother’s stomach. The infant is fully weaned at 12 months.

Koalas can hang out with their mom for about 3 years or until another baby is born.

Regrettably the koala is in decline, mainly because of urbanization which has led to the destruction of its habitat. Even though the koala is currently recognized as’vulnerable’ by the Australian government, its habitat is not protected.

Anorexia in Women

Eating disorders tend to go beyond the boundaries of having to be skinny with restricted-eating habits (most seem to be attached to their owner psychologically). That is to say – the psychological element is often the instigator behind a woman believing she’s fat, overly fat, or even verging on the side of being fat.

Even hungry by an anorexia sufferer isn’t such an unusual practice, together with purging (eating, followed by forced/self-inflicted nausea after-wards). Other symptoms might include: obsessive exercise, and using laxatives to help themselves lose-weight.

The”press” has much to do with anorexia, as each time one watches the t.v., or flips through a magazine – the something that becomes apparent is -“the perfect look,” where skinny girls are”glamorized,” and obese women are”looked-down upon” (a factor that could propel a woman [or child] into believing she may be looked-down upon whether she does not exhibit the same perfect profile that the public asks for.

Women are different to men with respect to beauty – remember, many women won’t leave the house in the morning without putting their makeup on first (because of the fear of not being regarded as beautiful [a psychological factor that men don’t have to live with]). Also, it’s fairly commonly known – a man may have two or three pairs of shoes in the closet to combine with their garments, whereas a woman may have a couple of dozen pairs of shoes in theirs (again a psychological element for women, also considered an unnecessary aspect of life for most guys ]).

However, many of that small proportion work in what are regarded as”women’s jobs” by many men – dancers, and models, etc., and where there is a need to be fit and slim (although they do exist – fat dancers and models aren’t commonly called for from the public eye).

Some women are naturally thin/skinny, so no actual work is needed in exercise and dieting. But for most of us (the crowd) that is not the case, and where not even with exercise and dieting would we end-up using a finely sculptured

Body as those which can be seen on the t.v., and in the many magazines which may be seen at the local paper shop.

As a result of this, for a small percentage of women, the only option to get the perfect body is to eat less. However, a psychological factor appears to set-in on this trip where the perception of what is perfect/slim/skinny gets twisted (at this stage, less food is eaten, in order to become even skinnier – or more ideal as it is seen).

Also, subconsciously, an anorexia sufferer may even feel like they’ve accomplished something great by being able to control their eating (or at least that’s what they believe they are doing). More often than not, the exact same person will be so preoccupied with their eating habits (weight-loss), they may even forget about other important things in life, or may simply avoid doing them all together.

It is thought that anorexia sufferers feel a wonderful sense of achievement because they’re in a position to exercise an extreme level of willpower over what they eat (or more so what they do not eat) and their weight (other reasons for anorexia eating disorders may be heredity).

Conclusion – The simple fact is that the media, tends to bring out the inbuilt weakness of a small percentage of women for the need to be perfect (beautiful), which is nothing more that a psychological aspect that is less important to men.

Hypothyroidism

Image result for hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism. It is a term you often hear when people are trying to lose weight, but what is it, how can you get it and, most importantly, how can it be treated?

What is hypothyroidism?

While this hormone is responsible for maintaining the body’s metabolism functioning properly, if you don’t have the right quantity, you’re not just likely to experience weight gain, but a whole host of other symptoms also. If the thyroid doesn’t produce enough thyroxine, your body’s functions start to slow down.

Who is likely to suffer from an underactive thyroidgland?

Unfortunately women often suffer from hypothyroidism more than men, with 1 in 50 women expected to develop the condition in contrast to 1 in 1000 men. While it usually develops in adulthood, becoming more prevalent with increasing years, it may happen at any age and anyone can be affected, with a few children being born with congenital hypothyroidism.

There are a selection of common symptoms which are associated with an overactive thyroidgland. These include feeling more tired than usual, weight gain, fluid retention, aching muscles, dry skin, lifeless hair and feeling chilly, although you won’t necessarily experience all these at the same time. There are also some less common symptoms, including loss of sexual drive, carpal tunnel syndrome and a hoarse voice.

How is it caused?

The main cause of hypothyroidism in the US is autoimmune disease, called Autoimmune Thyroiditis or Hashimoto’s disease, where the antibodies created by the immune system attach to the thyroid gland and prevent it from generating the correct levels of thyroxine.

An underactive thyroid gland can be diagnosed by means of a simple blood test that measures the degree of thyroid stimulating hormone in the blood. Higher levels than normal indicate that the thyroid isn’t producing enough thyroxine. It can also be diagnosed by low levels of thyroxine (T4). While the condition can not be cured it can be treated with a daily dose of the synthetic thyroid hormone, Levothyroxine, which can reverse symptoms in as little as 7 to 14 days. As soon as you start this treatment, you’ll need to take it for the rest of your life and you’ll need to undergo annual checks to make certain that the dosage is still suitable for your needs.

How to Keep Our Kids Healthy

Kid, Soap Bubbles, Child, Fun, Children
Psychologists have long considered that youth is the golden age of creating healthy psychology. All kinds of habits and behavioral patterns lay the foundation at this time. If there is a good beginning, the moral character of children can be reached in the future. Get healthy development; If you ignore the child’s mental health right now, then it is more difficult or even impossible to expect the child to have a healthy personality and health psychology after becoming an adult. Relaxed emotions allow children to carry out various activities smoothly. Parents should keep their children in a state of exuberance. The development of young children’s emotions is characterized by vulnerability to infection.
To Allow children to have a good psychological experience, parents should:
Set an example for children to imitate, and constantly infect their children with their optimistic mood.
To establish a harmonious and tacit relationship between parents in order to have a subtle influence on children. The child’s face is a barometer of the relationship between parents. This is the reality.
Spiritual Investments
Emotional investment in children. The American psychologist Campbell suggested that parents should make corresponding spiritual investments to create children mentally healthy.
Respect and Independence
Study your child affectionately, make intimate contact with your child, and focus on your child. Respect for children, though they are young, they should also be considered a member of their family with a certain level of independence, have their own emotions and needs.
Civilized Family
Parents should treat their children courteously and be civilized and courteous to their kids. Do not fight children. No matter what kind of great or what the kid did, parents need to express their congratulations. The right attitude of parents to children should be love but not spoiled. They are both strict and amiable. Children growing up in such a democratic, free and ample atmosphere must show warmth, openness, liveliness, cheerfulness, self-confidence, and strong activity. Fantastic quality, like working with people, social adaptability, etc..
Healthy Family
In short, to maintain and promote the mental health of children and to receive a Healthy Family, improve the overall emotional quality of children, must pay attention to the development of the physical surroundings, but also focus on the construction of the human environment; that is, we must concentrate on specialized mental health education activities, but also penetrate into life All facets; that is, to confront the whole, but also listen to a few of kids; that is, to pay great attention to the kindergarten, but also the attention and involvement of family society. Only through joint efforts of all parties can we achieve good educational results.

The Restless Teenage Years

Sad, Girl, Sadness, Broken Heart, Suffer
Educating the teens has been hardest in our educational system. It’s the time when the child is embroiled in internal conflict as to personal identity, a time that there’s such an impulse to rebel against the present adult arrangement; a period that if teachers aren’t careful may result in a make or mar situation. That’s the time that kids are more likely to take to medication because of peer groups and other factors that goes beyond the scope of this write-up. But poor comprehension of what is happening to the teenager is bound to hasten their alienation to their environment, making them a victim to unusual influences.
I’ve said in other posts that the spirit, the future owner of the body usually incarnate in the fetus at the center of pregnancy. It is the time of the first kick of the infant in the uterus, and with the entrance of the soul that the blood automatically forms. Therefore it is safe to say that the spirit forms the blood it is likely to use in the body. This is because the soul binds itself to the body with the blood as the bridge. Actually it’s the radiation of the soul that joins with the radiation of the blood to keep it jumped. Hence whenever the soul leaves the body in death the body instantly dissolves. But that is not the topic for today.
It is as if it is intended to be connected with the world but wasn’t yet permitted to until the ideal time. That is why children learn only by imitation, because obligation has not yet set in. They’re more like animals, evoking the source of the body I discussed in the content Evolution vs Creation. It is also at this age that mostly people have the ability to see the kinds of the forces of the elements like the gnomes, elves and water sprites. It is also the period when the connection of the soul with their previous lives is strongest. Teachers should take into considerations of this fact in order not to hamper the natural development of the child. For a child who can see an elemental being and a teacher informs him that such beings do not exist but is a figment of his imagination does a lot of harm to the child’s mind.
At adolescence, the bridge is now lowered for the soul to make immediate contact with the environment. Here the time of personal responsibility sets in, and there’s this longing for everything ideal by the individual involved. But the ideal they envisage is glaringly opposite to the reality they see on earth. This is the cause of the rebellious nature of youth. And this rebellion can be taken to extremes, especially when, in the case of girls, books of love paint artificial pictures of existence. The confusion among half-casts, which in real sense are racial misfits, is complicated by their dual racial ancestry.

Especially For Moms & Professionals

Mother, Child, Friendship, Family, Water
Note: You know yourself best. I invite you to use wise discernment & take what resonates & functions for you & your situation & let go the rest!
Kids typically do not recall the things you bought them when they develop. At the end of the day, the most overpowering key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents. Jane D. Hull
1] Notice how you go about your day, pause & breathe & consciously release what is not working.
Do you hurry through most things frequently considering these things to be done or how well or not well everything before went? Most parents are juggling much. If you notice yourself breathing very shallow or fast, I invite you to slow down & choose mindful breathing. This will open space to stop rushing & rather be calm.
As children, we naturally learnt abdominal breathing. Not only will conscious breathing & being in this moment assist you, you will also be a great model for your children on utilizing”pause and breathe” as ways to help redirect & prevent meltdowns.
Do consciously breathe too to release any tension, stress or tightness you might feel.
Thought Invokers are questions to reflect on & that frequently bring insight:
A thought invoker to consider: What can open up for you once you let go worrying & trying to be & do it all flawlessly?
2] Acknowledge everything you’re grateful for such as people, events, successes, learning, opportunities and items regularly. When you develop the habit of appreciating people,events, & things more on a daily basis, you will find an increased sense of joy! .
Practice appreciating & celebrating small joys & victories even with your children. They’ll begin appreciating more rather than taking things for granted.
Everything you love, appreciates!
3) Identify & compose your vision and intention[s] for the year and 3-5 decades.
Then take the time to identify 3-4 daily practices that will support you meet your vision and objectives. It can be short & crisp OR if have more time and wish to, then take some opportunity to be more descriptive. Then allow yourself to feel the emotions you feel as if you have already received this vision. You will be motivated by the emotions of joy and gratitude on fulfilling your desired vision. Listen for your intuition and inner wisdom guidance and take small steps everyday towards your vision!
Always use wise judgement & modify based on feedback. You may choose to share with your spouse /partner, a buddy or coach for support.
4] Meet with other Moms with the intention to talk about, learn from each other, support and celebrate each other (physically or even virtually). There is significant research suggesting that women feel a drop in their stress levels when they connect, share and learn from others like them.
Take time to build friendships that nurture you and vice versa!
5) Take time out for at least one clinic that will help you maintain observer mode & also nurtures you physically, emotionally and spiritually. This could enable you to release old limiting patterns & get you from being in reactive mode. [which often happens to Moms / Dad / or frankly anyone who gets stressed!] .
What one-two actions emotionally & /or spiritually fulfill you?
6) Taking care of yourself is not just important, it’s vital!
Take at least 10 minutes [and if possible more] for yourself to engage in something you love and which provides you joy and where you forget time.
Thought Invokers:
What is possible for you & your family when you take time to invest in you?
What’s an activity that makes you believe you are in your zone?
Bear in mind the plane example-we are reminded to first put our own oxygen mask then put on the mask for others including our kids. After all, what good can we do for others if we are not around?
7) You don’t have to do it alone!
Empower yourself with assistance from a mentor who cares for and calls forth your brilliance and natural gifts and abilities!
Find a coach you resonate with & move forward on your desired results now!
Working with a Coach is different from working with a therapist, consultant or perhaps a Mentor. A coach is also different from a friend who listens and also hopes & wants you to listen to them and support them.
Coaching is focused on improving quality of work and life and is a procedure for conversion & transformation.

Through The Difficult Times

Love, Valentine, Heart, In Love
The way we treat ourselves in difficult moments says a lot about who we are. It’s simple to be on top of the world when things are going right and we want to hold on to this feeling hoping it will last forever. Yet when it does not, it seems like we’re bound to train tracks with an oncoming train headed our way and not able to move.
How we behave towards ourselves in our darkest moment’s lays the basis for who we become later on. Self-love is a tricky concept for many to grasp. I’ve had countless coaching sessions with people who find it hard to love and love themselves. This primarily stems from our formative years and the messages we received from our parents or caregivers. They become entrenched into our mind and nervous system and, if reinforced, are difficult to give up. However, difficult does not mean impossible.
Is this something you’ve experienced? For instance, how can you treat yourself when things don’t go your way? If your significant other breaks up with you or your health or finances endure. What’s your inner dialogue during these times? I’ve experienced pain and suffering during my life in the shape of losing my father to disease, a relationship break up, a health crisis and fiscal woes. There were times I found it hard to appreciate myself because of the despairing inner dialogue that convinced me it was my fault for being in this situation. I felt trapped, helpless and hopeless to navigate my way out.
It is why I wrote my first book since it was a theme I had been intimate with and new well. However, I recognized that being stuck in my circumstances was not who I am. It wasn’t the narrative I wanted to live, nor succumb to. I knew somewhere deep within me there was a presence yearning to express itself but I didn’t know how to get in contact with it. I wanted to love and nurture myself with compassion instead of negative self-talk. Gradually, I noticed my conditions started to shift and my inner dialogue changed when I started meditating. I was an anxious person then, but this shifted to a calm and peaceful person over the coming years.
Breaking Down The Old And Tired Ways Of Living
The love within us awaits you to come home to it. It’s your palace of refuge, a place that knows no boundaries, other than to receive you in its arms and awaken you to your authentic self. The self-love I speak of starts by recognising that difficult moments do not last. To love yourself through difficult times when there’s minimal growth requires you hope that what’s happening is doing so to help you give up the ruins of the past. It is breaking down the tired and old methods of living a new base of love and strength can emerge from your authentic self.
The spiritual teacher and author Matt Kahn provides us the wisdom in his book Everything Is Here to Help You: A Loving Guide for Your Soul’s Evolution that love is more than an emotion but a wellspring of compassion that resides within us and our job is to bring it forth:”From a spiritual perspective, love isn’t an emotion we feel all of the time. Love is an unwavering depth of compassion and empathy that reaches inward to embrace our experiences-no matter how mixed up, closed down, unfulfilled, or overwhelmed we tend to be. When rooted in the vibration of love, we don’t have to be totally treated to bring forth the kindness and care that already dwells within us.”
There’s a source of love within you that beckons you to connect with it. Do not take my word for it because it appears on your display. Unite with this loving presence by standing in front of a mirror and reciting the words:”I love you” the minute you finish reading this report. Recite those three-letter words when you feel joy and happiness or when you are angry or depressed. Recite them as often as you can because you are outside conditions don’t have to dictate how you love yourself. The love I speak of is always there waiting for you to come home to it. The more you connect with this boundless presence, the greater it’ll be known throughout your lifetime. The way we treat ourselves through difficult times says a whole lot about who we are because who we are is an energy of love. If we make time to connect with this presence more often, we’ll realise that our difficulties serve a purpose; to return us to the wholeness of our authentic self.
