Getting Over Depression at Work – Saving 50% of Productive Time Lost to Depression

I’ve learned so much along the way and thought I should share a bit of it here.

First – Giving people false hope causes depression. It might lift their spirits for a few hours but they fall back after you leave, harder and heavier than ever.

Second – Depression is a part of nature’s arsenal of illness that are used to break the bonds between a persons delusional thinking (ego) and love for life. When people hold false hopes of the future instead of really healing the past, nature resolves it through depression.

Third – Anyone – predisposed or not to depression will become depressed if they feel they don’t have a future. Lost hope that tomorrow will bring good fortune breeds depression. Even in the worst situations on earth, a person who believes the future will be better than the present will not become depressed.

Forth – If we don’t work on something that gives us challenge, or at least feeds us money they can feed our future, we become depressed just at the acknowledgement that we exist for no real benefit. Even the Zen monk who believes it’s all an illusion hopes that by knowing that, they become enlightened.

Five – For the average person – VIP is the best solution for depression.

V = Vision. A real, no fantasy, exciting and achievable vision of the future. (requires the complete certainty that comes from Inspiration….

I = Inspiration. Inspiration is when the inner voice speaks louder than the outer voices. This means that to be inspired you have to get past responding to your emotion (outer voices) – To achieve this, we go to stillness – meditation or such where we learn to let go hope, desire and ambition and just be. This is best done in nature with activity. Simply say “I want nothing, I need nothing and therefore I have everything.”

P=Purpose. Until we connect to the divine purpose of our lives we are self serving no matter what we say or do. Even wanting world peace or doing yoga can be self serving (ego centric) if we do not have a purpose greater than self. Finding this divine reason for our lives is one of the key ingredients we need to put in place to find and live in harmony with nature. It is also an amazing anti dote for depression.

Attention Health Care Professionals – Medical Building Financing

There are reports that because of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, around 32 million more Americans will receive health insurance, and this will certainly increase the demand for new or larger medical establishments. Besides that, the demand for medical services has only grown in the recent past, and is expected to continue to grow in the time to come. Medical, dental and health care industries have always been a stable industry and if you, as a doctor, an investor, or an institution, are thinking about finding medical building financing or medical office financing, you could very well be on the right track.

The ‘Medical’ Benefit:

The medical field has largely been viewed as a relative safe sector by the lending sector (both commercial and private). And even though the recent slump has put the brakes on indiscriminate lending, you can still find willing lenders when it comes to looking for medical building loan, medical office loan, dentist office loan, etc. After all, around 60 million Sq. Ft of space was added for medical services in between 2000 to 2007.

Medical Facility Specific Checklist:

Before you decide on any one building/office, understand that these facilities generally come with distinct structural, economic, and access criteria, and this is something you must address. This makes it important that your lender feels comfortable with your choice. Factors that you need to look into in this regard include:

· Going through the dimensions; as medical office buildings generally require shallow cubicles, and opting for a building with large cubicles would result in a waste of space.

· Studying the property’s HVAC system. This is because medical facilities generally have small rooms, and since different temperature settings are required in different areas, the HVAC system could buckle under unusual demands.

· Having sufficient parking space (an average of 5-6 spaces for every thousand square feet).

· Going through the costs that you would have to bear in terms of wages, equipment, insurance, taxes, etc.

The Loan:

Once you’ve established how much you need the medical building financing or dental office loan for, you go through the loan options. The loan amount would dictate whether you look for a small balance or a large balance medical/dentist loan. In either case, you would have to put down around 10% or more of the amount as down payment, and in either case you have the option to choose between fixed rate and variable rates when it comes to the interest.

Getting Approved:

When you apply for the loan, be prepared for your credit and your tax returns and financials to be scrutinized. Expect being asked about what you have in terms of bonds, stocks, savings, etc. The property that you have chosen would also be analyzed and this analysis would include looking into the local market conditions, the income and expense of the building, the location, the age & appearance of the facility, etc. These conditions remain the same for both dental and medical loan financing.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding, both are the wonderful experience for a woman. They give the feeling of satisfaction and completeness to the woman. But breast care is important during pregnancy and lactation in order to keep it healthy. Here, in this article you will find some useful tips on breast care during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Oral Cancer?

Oral cancer is a kind of cancer that originates in and around the mouth, and can spread throughout the head and neck of those affected. Family dentists regularly inspect patients during regular visits to monitor the health of the mouth and gums. This is a vital step in recognizing the origination of cancer in the gums, lips, cheeks, tongue, and in the roots of teeth. These symptoms, which can be indicative of oral cancer beginning to form, can be indicators of other oral infections or diseases. Any person experiencing these symptoms, or symptoms which are similar in appearance or effect, contacting family dentists would be in the patient’s interest. Failure to do so may result in the need of cosmetic dentists to address some of the damage done to the gums and lips during these symptoms.

Routine check-ups and regular contact with family dentists is the best means of preventative care one can take in the event of emerging symptoms of oral cancer. other means of prevention are healthy dietary habits that limit–or outright eliminate–the use of alcohol and tobacco products, as they have been linked to oral cancer, as many other kinds of cancer and cancerous growths

Below we will discuss many of the most common symptoms linked to oral cancer, and how one can spot them in their early stages.

1. Discolored Splotches Appearing in and Around the Mouth and Lips:

Splotches, sometimes appearing in wide patches, around the mouth and/or lips are one of the first signs of early oral cancer. The discoloration usually comes in a red or white color, not unlike the reaction of inflammation to the early stages of an infection. These red and white patches, when they relate to oral cancer, however, are signs of abnormality within the cells of the mouth, pointing to a malignancy taking form. This is perhaps the best point in which to treat oral cancer before it spreads to the rest of the head and further down.

2. Blisters and Polyps Forming Inside the Mouth:

Oral blisters are a fairly common occurrence. Eating certain types of food with strong spices or hot beverages can cause blisters to form in the cheeks and gums in reaction to the heat. These usually heal in a number of days when tended to. A blister or a polyp that will not heal after weeks, however, is cause for concern, as it may be a reaction to malignant cells.

3. Difficulty Eating and Swallowing:

While any things may make it difficult to eat, chew, swallow, and irritate your gum and esophagus, it is a common symptom that comes with oral cancer. Inability to move the jaw freely, and irritation from various food types may be a sign that it is not an allergic reaction or tension in the muscles around the mouth.

4. Irritation in and Around the Ears:

Earaches can come from living a normal life. Many people commonly get them from swimming, or showering for extended periods of time. But an aggressive earache, one that reddens the skin in and around the ear, and, possibly, the neck, has been related highly to oral cancer.
