Weight-Loss Gastric Band: Risky Business

See video by clicking picture below

Being overweight is a problem and can be detrimental to one’s health physically, mentally, and emotionally. It is not easy to live life overweight, and various diets are present to help lose weight and be healthier. After many failed diets, desperation leads to desperate measures, including surgeries that are very invasive. Gastric band, designed to temporarily reduce the size of the stomach, is one that few consider as a drastic surgery to help one lose the struggling weight, but these can be very dangerous and can cause an even worse problem. Fact is,  gastric bands don’t always work and they are not a long-term solution.

Doctors say better options include gastric bypass surgery, which is permanent but offers better long-term weight control. Another procedure being offered is a sleeve gastrectomy, which also surgically reduces the size of the stomach to about 15 per cent of its original size. It is also irreversible and provides a long-term weight loss solution.

Fake It Until You Become It!

Your body language shapes you and demonstrates who YOU are. It affects how others see you and perceive you.

You can shape your own life, your own image, your own perception. The way you stand, the way you place your arms, the way you stare… you shape how others see you and most importantly, how you see yourself!

In primal situations in your life, such as a job interview, it is actually important how others see you; your image and your actions will determine how others see you fit for the job.

Amy Cuddy, a social psychologist,  reveals how you can shape yourself. Fact is, not all of us are confident, not all of us can demonstrate confidence, but you can “fake it until you become it”. So how about you try to act the part, until you become the part.

Remember, body language is very transparent. If you walk into a room with your head down, it will transpire into your actions and others’ reactions. First impressions are vital and can affect how you are perceived and affect your chances in life.

Nonetheless, if you are not a confident person, there is always hope for you to become one. You can influence how others see you and how you see yourself, you just need to try something new. Amy Cuddy shares how our body language can change other people’s perceptions, and perhaps even our own body chemistry, through her secret of changing  body positions.

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Amy Cuddy argues that “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can boost feelings of confidence, and might have an impact on our chances for success.

I strongly recommend that you watch her TED Talk and learn something today that may change your life and your future opportunities:

Did You Know Sunglasses Have an Expiry Date…

You may not be aware of this, but keeping the same sunglasses for longer than 2 years can damage your eyes.

Sunglasses should be changed every two years to protect eyes from sun damage say scientists

Exposure to the sun is now believed to wear down the protective lensing of your sunglasses, causing damage to your eyes, and Designer sunglasses now have a shelf life of only two years. Scientists have undertaken studies to measure the scale of deterioration due to exposure to the sun and have confirmed that if sunglasses aren’t replaced, the wearer runs the risk of long-term degeneration of vision.

The aim is to ensure lenses have sufficient UV filters as inadequate levels could affect the cornea and internal structure of the eye. When this happens, edema or swelling to the eye can cause distorted vision. Pterygium or the growth of fleshy pink tissue on the white of the eye can also affect vision while other side effects can result in retina damage or cataracts.

This is a lesson, to not take your eyes for granted and take care of your eyes, your vision is all you have.
