Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

By Roz Jones

Mental health is one of the greatest gifts one can get for themselves. Your mind controls just about everything that happens in your life from your beliefs about yourself to how you handle what happens around you. The worst enemy you can ever have is not the person who hates you with passion. It is a weak mind. Opportunities can come your way and enemies can do all in their power to disrupt your life but how all that turns out depends on your mental strength. In other terms, your mind has the final say in almost everything your brain processes. However, this does not mean that you do not experience emotions. Rather, you are aware of how certain things affect you and devise ways to survive them, block them, or even use them to your own advantage.

Below are some things mentally strong people don’t do

They are not controlled by other people – they know their purpose and that living it does not depend on anyone else’s power but their will and goals. As much as they understand the importance of creating and maintaining good relationships with other people, they also understand that no one can or should play the role of a god in their lives. The fact that they know their purpose and have clear goals makes them immune to peer pressure. They may err and may need advice, but oftentimes, they think through everything they want to do and they have the final say in decisions made concerning their lives. Some people may think they are stubborn, but mentally strong people have their mindset on reaching goals. They prefer to stand out rather than fit in.

They are not controlled by circumstances – mentally strong people do not change their lives based on their situations. They remain focused on their goals and handle situations to work for them or, they give way to situations and overtake them. The point is, whatever happens, a mentally strong person does not change who he or she is. 

They do not give up easily – determination defines them. They give their best in everything they do. Where they fail, they take lessons and try again until it works. Of course, this requires them to be realistic and calculative enough to know whether their plan is still as good as they perceived in the beginning. Plans fail for different reasons including that circumstances changed after strategies were formulated or that there were some loopholes.

How to Balance Your Hormone Levels part 2

By Roz Jones

There are many hormones in your body as a woman that you need to work on balancing properly. These range from estrogen and progesterone, to testosterone, and your thyroid hormones. Simple daily tasks can help improve your health overall and balance your hormone levels at the same time. I shared a few of these last week LINK, and here are a few more!

Eat More Healthy Fats

You may think the words ‘healthy’ and ‘fats’ don’t go hand-in-hand, but that isn’t at all true. While you may not want to just eat unlimited fats all day long, there are healthier fats that are great for you. These can help to balance your hormones and actually help you lose weight. You want to avoid man made and processed fats like margarine and vegetable oil, and instead go for healthier fats like grass fed butter, coconut oil, nuts and seeds, and avocados. Try to add these to your diet and you will notice all the amazing benefits. 

Improve Your Sleep

If you haven’t been getting 6-8 hours of sleep a night, it is time to rectify that. Missing out on sleep affects your body and mind, and yes, your hormone levels. If you want to balance your hormones, start focusing on getting better sleep. Try changing your sleep routines, drinking a cup of tea before bed, and not keeping your phone near you while trying to sleep.

Health Screenings for Women

By Roz Jones

As a woman, taking your health seriously is of the utmost importance. One way to do this is to get routine screenings that look at various aspects of your health, from your blood pressure and cholesterol, to your stamina and physical health. Here are some of the more important health screenings women need to get. 

Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

These are two simple screenings that everyone should get done regularly, including if you are a woman. In fact, women often have a higher risk for heart disease and other cardiovascular conditions, so you should start these tests around age 18-20. Your doctor may request to perform the test each year if you are at a high risk, or do them every few years when you go in for routine blood work. Both blood pressure and cholesterol can affect your heart health and overall health, so don’t skip this one.

Breast Screenings

As a woman, one of the most risky cancers for you is breast cancer. While men can get breast cancer, most people who get this type of cancer are women. You should get various types of breast screenings to look for signs of cancer. The first is a basic type of breast exam, where the doctor or nurse will look for signs of bumps or lumps on your breast, including examining your armpits and areolas for irregular patterns or colors. You should also get a mammogram each year starting between 40 and 50 years old, according to your doctor’s guidelines.

I’ll continue the discussion of women’s health next week!

Medicare Open Enrollment Starts This Week!

Medicare open enrollment starts October 15th, and runs until December 7th! Take a look at these tips to be ready to enroll.

Check your mail. You may get important notices from Medicare or Social Security. If you’re in a Medicare plan, you’ll get an Annual Notice of Changes (ANOC) telling you of any changes in coverage, costs, or service area. Note any 2022 changes to your health coverage or any extra help you may get to pay for prescription drugs.
You may also get brochures and other marketing materials from insurance companies that offer Medicare health and prescription drug plans. Remember — plans aren’t allowed to call or come to your home without an invitation from you.

Think about your Medicare coverage needs for 2022. Carefully review your current Medicare coverage, and note any upcoming changes to your costs or benefits. Decide if your current Medicare coverage will meet your needs for the year ahead. If you like your current coverage, and it’s still available for 2022, you don’t need to take any action to keep it.

Preview 2022 health and prescription drug plans. You can use the official medicare.gov site to compare your current Medicare plan to others, and see prices based on any help you get with drug costs.

Common Self-Love Obstacles People Face pt 2

By Roz Jones

When you are trying to practice self-love, there will be a few obstacles along the way, which can derail your progress if you aren’t prepared. Being aware of common obstacles can allow you to put preventative measures in place. So, let’s look at some more of the most common obstacles caregivers and others may face when trying to practice more self-love.

Needing to be perfect

Perfectionism is a major obstacle to self-love. While a little perfectionism can be a good thing, especially in business, it can also lead to disappointment, frustration, and unhappiness. 

When you feel like everything must be perfect, you will be devastated when you fall short. Try and let go of your need for perfection. Understand where your need for perfection comes from. Try to identify triggers so you can set up some preventative measures. Remember, nobody is perfect, not even you!

Not understanding how to love yourself

The biggest barrier to self-love is not understanding how to love yourself. Many people don’t fully understand what self-love means. They mistakenly think it is about doing things you want to do, rather than what you need.

Self-love isn’t just about treating yourself; it is about making sure you are truly fulfilling your needs. For example, if you want to lose weight, indulging in junk food isn’t going to help, even though it might be bringing temporary joy. Instead, a healthier diet and exercise routine is considered a form of self-love, as it helps you to become healthier and fulfils the body’s needs.

These are just some of the common obstacles to self-love we should all be aware of. Awareness grants you the ability to overcome them. Finding people you trust and who build you up is a big part of being able to practice self-love. However, it’s important to be your own personal cheerleader too. Don’t forget that to love and care for our loved ones, we must first love and care for ourselves!
