Mesothelioma Cancer- What to tell children

Written by Paul Curran

Telling children about any serious illness or disease is not easy. The best approach is a direct one as children, even very young ones, often sense that something is not right. Their fears need to tackled and honesty isrepparttar best policy.

The amount of information you should give them depends on their age and how grown up they are. Being honest is one thing but giving them allrepparttar 148760 information at once may be too much. Try spreading it out a bit to easerepparttar 148761 shock ofrepparttar 148762 inevitable outcome.

Questions can be answered on a 'need to know basis' initially but as more hospital vists are undertaken andrepparttar 148763 patient is unwell at times then more detail needs to be offered. Gettingrepparttar 148764 same question over and over again from young children can be difficult at times but it should be realised that this is a normal part of their development.

Teenagers may have a particularly hard time as they now have to cope with additional strong emotions and extra responsibilies, as well asrepparttar 148765 usual emotions which are part of their development into adults. They may need to turn to others outsiderepparttar 148766 family if they find it difficult to talk to family members friend, teacher or counsellor.

How Breathing Differently Can Make You Happier

Written by Adam Eason

"When you breathe, you inspire. When you do not breathe, you expire." – Quote from an 11-year-old’s science exam

John Grinder, co-creator of NLP talks aboutrepparttar link between respiration, physiology, internal state and high performance. He calls this ‘the chain of excellence’. I recently read a book by Osho,repparttar 148759 wonderfully non-PC mystic and guru. Inrepparttar 148760 book, Osho instructedrepparttar 148761 reader to pay attention to their breathing rate when they were sad, and noticerepparttar 148762 timing ofrepparttar 148763 in-breath and out-breath. He explained that next time they were happy, they could re-inducerepparttar 148764 sad state by merely repeatingrepparttar 148765 breathing pattern. Fortunately, he added, it worksrepparttar 148766 other way round too!

Follow some or all of these exercises;

Firstly; When you are experiencing a powerful, positive state, allow yourself to become aware of your breathing rate. Pay particular attention torepparttar 148767 timing and rhythm of your in-breath and out-breath.

Secondly; Next time you are in a neutral or negative state, start breathing atrepparttar 148768 rate and rhythm from exercise one, and within a minute or so,repparttar 148769 positive state should begin to return.

Many gurus advise people to do breathing exercises regularly. I know Tony Robbins does in his marvellous book “Unlimited Power” he advises that you start each day with a breathing exercise of inhaling slowly and deeply, then holding it for twice as long asrepparttar 148770 inhalation and exhaling in twicerepparttar 148771 pace. It really is invigorating and a great way to get motivated atrepparttar 148772 start ofrepparttar 148773 day, especially if you are looking to do some things with your day that require motivation.

Breathing is powerful, our life force and is a major factor influencing our state of mind (if you uncertain about this, hold your breath for two minutes & re-read this sentence) This beingrepparttar 148774 case, please use your common sense when doing any of these exercises (if you have a respiratory condition, please check with your health advisor first.) I do not want any asthmatics complaining that they did themselves harm following these exercises!!
