Funeral Speech

Funeral Speech

My grandfather told me we should admire or respect someone not because they are related to us but for how they live their lives. In the same spirit, I am here to pay tribute to my grandfather not out of an obligation but out of admiration for how he lived his life. He boldly embraced every challenge life threw at him and never hesitated to enlighten others with his life lessons. But at the same time he also had the wisdom to understand that people are shaped by experiences which is why he was the most non-judgmental person I have ever known. I always felt comfortable talking to him because he could put himself in anyone’s shoes.

Physichological Impact of Nutrition and Amino Acids and Anxiety Disorders

Merriam-Webster defines anxiety as “an abnormal and overwhelming sense of apprehension and fear often marked by physiological signs” (anxiety). The physiological signs associated with anxiety include increased pulse rate, tension and sweating. In addition, anxiety is a response to a perceived danger in a person’s mind and not an actual danger. The person also has doubt about his or her ability to cope which causes undue stress. When anxiety is persistent and chronic, it is called anxiety disorder.

Equal Opportunity in the Army

The average person may think that entering the armed forces translates to leaving any hope of personal identity behind, or at least stashed away till the service ends. The United States military is an extraordinary organization, and it has gained its reputation and power through a focus unlike anything the world has ever seen before: a commitment to the common goal of safeguarding the nation, and acting as a peacekeeping presence globally.  Nothing like this can be accomplished without an equal commitment from all its members.  In the minds of these members, this usually means giving up their individuality, to better serve the common good.  People see the U.S. Army, then, as a force made up, not of a variety of individuals, but as an entity of absolute uniformity.

Why you should always eat Breakfast

Why You Should Always Eat Breakfast

Breakfast is considered to be our most important meal of the day because most of our day’s energy is obtained from it, especially if it is rich in protein and fibre. It also provides you with vitamins and minerals. It should keep away the hunger pangs until lunch time; and as a result, keep you from unhealthy snacking and overeating at lunch. It will start up your metabolism and keep you at a healthy weight.  You will also be able to better focus and concentrate and be less likely to become cranky and get headaches. Studies have shown that students who do not eat breakfast—especially a healthy one—do poorly in school.  As a result, many schools offer free healthy breakfasts.  There are actually a couple of want ads of large Fortune 500 companies who offer free nutritious breakfasts every morning (as well as gyms and showers).  They know that their employees will be much more creative and productive as a result.  They will also be healthier and save the company money by taking fewer sick days.

Many people who skip breakfast say that they do not have time in the morning to make and to eat it.   A bran muffin, an orange, and a glass of milk are healthy and much better than nothing.  Limit your intake of juice—unless you make it yourself—as most of it is heavily laden with sugar with the result that while you may receive a quick energy boost, you will also likely crash after a couple of hours.  Some people put left-overs such as potatoes, beans, and ham pieces in a pan and top it with scrambled egg.  It heats while you dress!  So eat breakfast!
