Take Pain Seriously!

 

Everything that we have in our body has a reason. We hate pain; however it also has a purpose. You may like it or not but pain is the language of our subconscious mind through which it convey a message to conscious mind.

Last week I had severe pain in my ear, initially I avoided it as it was not severe. As pain increased with time I decided to go to ENT specialist. After examination doctor told me that I have ear infection.

Pain may be annoying and irritating but sometimes it is due to pain that we seek treatment. Never ignore pain. Pain is not without reason. Sometimes pain is early sign or warning for some big trouble like heart attack or kidney failure. By taking pain seriously, you can avoid many serious illnesses.

Eid-Ul-Fitr :

Based on the sighting of the moon, tomorrow (15th June 2018) might be the Eid-ul-Fitr- a Muslims festival.

I would like to wish you all a Happy Eid-Ul-Fitr!

Below is some basic information about Eid.

The Festival celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. It is celebrated on the first of Shawwal (10th month of the lunar Islamic calendar). Eid is a Thanksgiving Day for the Muslims. On this day Muslims show their real joy for the health, strength and the opportunities of life, which Allah has given to them to fulfill their obligation of fasting and other good deeds during the blessed month of Ramadan.

Meaning of Word Eid-ul-Fitr : The word Eid in Arabic means: ‘a gathering of a group at any day.’ It is also related to the meaning: ‘to return’ which indicates that this day returns again every year, while Fitr means “to break the fast”.

History of Beginning of Eid-ul-Fitr :

The hadith pertaining to Eid is narrated by Hazrat Anas (RA) in the following manner:

“Holy Prophet came to Madinah, the people had two days in which they used to entertain and amuse themselves. He asked: “What are these two days?” They said: “We used to amuse ourselves and take pleasure in these two days during the Days of Ignorance (jahiliyyah). The Messenger of Allah said, “Allah has substituted for you something better than these two; the Eid of Adha  (sacrifice) and the Eid of Fitr .”  [Sunan Abi Dawood]

While celebrating, do not forget the poor and needy people. Go to orphanages and arrange some nice food for them. At least take care of poos in your neighbourhood.

 

 

5 Simple ways to save money:

100 Posts

This is my 100th post. This week was really amazing. First my blog was subscribed by 100 followers, then next day I received highest views (100+) in one day and finally today I am writing 100th post. Thanks for liking my post.

5 Simple ways to save money:

We all save some money for different reason; it is a good habit to save money especially for our old age. When you have money in your hand, you want to spend it in amusement and on some not so important activities. Later on, when you need money for important works-you do not have it. Life is unpredictable, so it is better to keep some savings. In Eastern world, there is a culture of too much saving and in western world there is a culture of minimal or no saving. However, both ways are wrong. We need a middle way to live a happy life. Neither too much luxury, nor self-denial.

Whether you are saving for paying back your loan or for your future, below are some tips which might help you to reduce your spending and save you some money:

 

  • When you go to supermarket for shopping, make a list of items you need to buy. This will save you from buying unnecessary grocery items. In supermarket items are displayed in such a way to attract consumers. Without buying list in your hand you will buy many extra items which will increase your bill.
  • Instead of throwing old stuff, try to re-sale it. Now a days there are many mobile app. And websites which helps you in selling old stuff.
  • Record your spending weekly or daily as time permits. By recording your expenses you will be able to pin point where your money is going and which item you can avoid to save money.
  • Be creative. Make your own gifts rather than buying expensive gifts for your loved once.
  • Quit your bad habits like smoking, drinking and over eating junk food.

WOW! 100 Followers : Thanks.

Disproportionate distribution of money

With the advancement in technology and increasing literate population it is becoming very difficult for illiterate people to survive in such world. Without any technical skill, no one can find the good job. Even in agriculture new machines and high-tech equipment are required and being used to increase productivity.

Gap between rich and poor is more dangerous than Global warming: For rich people it is easier to give education to their kids or even if they didn’t complete education, their rich dad can arrange source of income for them. But for poor kids, there is only darkness! They do not know how they can finish education without money and even after finishing education if their grades are little less, whether they will get good job or not! They have to suffer for under under-qualified job.

We are living in a world where rich are becoming richer and poor are becoming poorer. On top of that, robots and artificial intelligence is reducing jobs. This scenario needs to be change. This is not the future we want for our coming generation. We need to find a mechanism to distribute wealth equally. There are two things we can do. First is for those employees who lost jobs due to automation must be compensated by providing some kind of pension from the profit company is earning by using automatic machines and AI. Second thing which can be done is by limiting maximum wealth a person can leave as legacy to hairs. We all earn everything from this world and from people living on it. Why should legacy be transferred to few people? It belongs to people from whom (S)he earns it. This rule must be implemented on billionaires. All excess money above the prescribed limit must go to charity or to government for welfare of poor family. This way we can reduce disproportionate distribution of money and live in better world.

Very Important information for Parents with newly born babies:

 

For babies and kids healthy Hemoglobin (HGB) level is 12 to 16 unit. In one-year-old babies, milk alone (Whether mother’s milk or cow milk) is not sufficient to maintain this level and if you will not start giving your babies other foods besides milk, your baby can develop deficiency of Iron and other nutrient. This deficiency can cause several problems like- improper growth of child, irritation , lack of attention and tiredness etc.

When it comes to how much iron children need, it is different at every age.

  • When an infant is breastfeeding, he or she will get their iron from their mom. When they are around 4 to 6 months old they should begin consuming iron fortified cereal. If the infant is not being breastfed they should be on a formula that is iron fortified.
  • From 7 to 12 months of age, infants need 11 milligrams each day of iron.
  • Children up to 4 years of age need 7 milligrams of iron every day and kids from 4 to 8 years of age need 10 milligrams. When kids get closer to the teen years, from 9 to 13, they need around 8 milligrams every day.
  • Boys older than 13 will need to have about 11 milligrams of iron every day and girls will need 15 because of their menstrual cycle.
  • If your young teen is involved in intense sports or exercise on a regular basis, they may need more iron.

 

For non vegetarian families, meat and chicken are good source of Iron that can be absorbed easily by our body. If HGB is too low (6-7 Unit) Iron supplement with the recommendation of Doctor to be given to child.

Start giving balanced diet to your babies as old as one year to avoid any type of deficiency. Instead of giving more milk try to give your baby fruits, vegetables, meat, pulses, nuts etc. 700 ml milk is adequate for babies eating other food too.

Your child may become anemic if his or her body:

  1. Does not produce enough red blood cells. This can happen if she does not have enough iron or other nutrients in her diet (e.g. iron-deficiency anemia).

2. Destroys too many red blood cells. This type of anaemia usually happens when a child has an underlying illness or has inherited a red blood cell disorder (e.g. sickle-cell anemia).

3. Loses red blood cells through bleeding. This can either be obvious blood loss, such as heavy menstrual bleeding, or long-term low-grade blood loss, perhaps in the stool.

What are the common signs and symptoms of anemia?

Pale, gray, or “ashy” skin (also, the lining of the eyelids and the nail beds may look less pink than normal)

Irritability

Mild weakness

Tiring easily

Children experiencing red blood cell destruction may become jaundiced (yellowing of the skin or eyes)

Children with severe anemia may have additional signs and symptoms:

Shortness of breath

Rapid heart rate

Swollen hands and feet

Children with anemia caused by very low levels of iron in their blood may also eat strange things such as ice, dirt, clay, and cornstarch. This behavior is called “pica” (pronounced pie-kuh). It is not harmful unless your child eats something toxic, such as lead paint chips. Usually the pica stops after the anemia is treated and as the child grows older.

If your child shows any of these signs or symptoms, please see your pediatrician. Even a low-level of anemia can affect your child’s energy, focus, and ability to learn. Chronic iron deficiency anemia can result in long-term, permanent impairment of development. In most cases, a simple blood count can diagnose anemia.

One more important information about Iron deficiency is that don’t give more calcium as it blocks iron absorption in our body. Give citrus fruits like Oranges which helps in increasing iron absorption by our body.

So please don’t live in fool’s paradise thinking milk alone is sufficient for growing babies! No, it’s not! Develop their habit to eat with you, even if you have to force them initially.
