plate-3033198_960_720

With the new year starting everyone always has a resolution on how they plan to be healthier this year. Many people do not realize that it is your mental health can impact all parts of your life from work to personal. Here are six ways in which you can improve your mental health in 2018.

  1. Stop Dieting

Evidence has proven that restricting one’s diet can lead to long-term weight gain if not done correctly. Learning to love your body no matter what size it is can help you to develop healthy body image and self-acceptance.

  1. Eat Broccoli

Consuming more fruits and vegetables can lower the risk of mental health problems while improving your quality of life.

  1. Join a Group

Keeping active and making social connections will improve mental health along with improving stress coping capabilities. Simple walks in the park, board games, and card games are all ways to social interactions.

  1. Move Your Body 

Exercising is an efficient way to reduce stress and anxiety. A Simple walk around your block can help you to maintain your daily mental health.

  1. Reduce Screen Time 

Reducing television time will not only allow you more time to exercise, but it will also let you sleep better at nights.

6. Seek help if you need it

Ultimately, you need to understand that it is okay to seek help if needed. Because the truth is that we all need help sometimes and the smart decision is to ask for it.

Positive Changes to Make for 2018

paper-3042645_960_720.jpgThe 2018 year is both exciting and worrying for most people.  We don’t know what waits for us, but the feeling of not knowing might be the reason there are mixed reviews about the new year.  While we create New Year’s Resolutions to satisfy are desire to improve, we sometimes aren’t sure what direction to take.  I have a couple of suggestions that are worth looking into for 2018

TRY EVERYTHING

The best way to solve the problem of what you want in life is to try everything.  Trying everything, will help you find that one passion in life that is worth pursuing.  I’d recommend beginning with the most common activities to see what drives others to pursue them.  It could be exercising, education, reading, or trying a new sport.

START A NEW CAREER

Why not start a new career? I hear New Year’s Resolutions about losing weight, drinking less, or partying less, but I never see anything about upgrading to a new career.  This could totally be you.  A new career means another adventure, better income, and more possibilities. Health Care and I.T programs are at the top of the most-wanted list for careers.  They are short-term, quick, and the biggest bang for your buck.  There is a low investment and high reward.

BE POSITIVE

This is one of the most important aspects to remember.  The more positive you are the better it is for you in the long run. You see quotes of optimism everywhere online, and the reason why you do is because it’s what inspires people to change for the better.  Regardless, of where you begin your journey, it’s worth noting that you can do better for yourself.  It’s never too late to change your mindset.  A bad day is not worth your time to think, but to learn from it and to improve on what you’ve learned.

The moral of the story for 2018 is to be open minded, strive for better, and more importantly make it better than 2017.

The Spirit of Giving is a Home Health Aide’s Strength

The Spirit of Giving is a Home Health Aide’s Strength

Caregivers, care attendants, personal care givers, in-home nurses, Certified Home Health Aides…these are the thousands of names these special people are given as their title.  If you were to summarize what they mean in one word, it’s “giving.”  It’s the season of giving and for Home Home Health Aides there is no such thing as a season.  Christmas will come and go, yet a Home Health Aides perseverance will continue for years to come.

Home Health Aides are Important 

Home Health Aides are important.  Caregivers are entrusted to care for our loved ones through their times of difficulty.  Having met Certified Home Health Aides during my time in the education-health care field, I realized that their work often goes unappreciated or undervalued in society.  It’s a sad truth that I decided to share to enlighten the public of their gracious deeds.  Throughout the year, these hard-working employees take care of the elderly and sickly with their utmost attention. The patients they care for are not always the easiest and at times can be almost impossible to deal with.  However, with passion for their work, they continuously fight through the daily struggles to assist family members with the best care possible.

Their Contribution and the Future to Society

Home Health Aides contribute more to society than one might believe.  You can place the statistics aside for a moment and think logically as a patient.  Would you rather receive care in a facility that you do not know or care at a place that you’ve known throughout your life?  Doctors and nurses recommend care-at-home for recovery purposes.  Patients feel more at peace when they are at home being cared for by surroundings they are familiar with.  Logically, psychology has shown vast advantages for those who choose Home Health Aides over Nursing Homes for their family members.  I’ve provided a list of advantages that are prevalent with a Home Health Aide. 

    1. Patients are less stressed
    2. Individual care is personalized for the patient
    3. Home Health Aides are trained and instructed by nurses
    4. Hospitals and medical facilities choose care giving because of its convenience
    5. Patients feel less lonely
    6. Families are less prone to feeling guilt for leaving family members at home alone

The future involved home care especially because Baby Boomers prefer the convenience.  As the generation ages, the value of Home Health Aides will continue to be immeasurable.  It’s vital, as a society, that we continue to show our appreciation towards these heroic people. 

Home Health Aides are Trained and Compassionate 

Home Health Aides compassion cannot be taught. Caregivers are skilled workers commit to their profession.  The biggest misconception I’ve heard is the lack of training Home Health Aides receive.  This is far from the truth or the reality.  I’ve seen the training first-hand.  It’s not easy.  A special type of commitment is needed to go through the classes that they do.  While every state is different, all Home Health Aides are required to endure vigorous training for their profession.  Their hands on training is crucial to the success and the overall care of the patient that they will be responsible.  Home Health Aides are trained, licensed, and skilled professionals.  It’s noted that home care agencies do a fantastic job of  screening candidates before they are allowed to visit a patient’s home. Then, candidates, are interviewed and placed with the appropriate patient to make sure they are a right fit.

It is a dedication that I see needs attention.  The attention we give will improve care for everyone including those
