Although men are commonly known to suffer from a heart attack, it doesn’t mean that women should not think about the same problem anymore. Women, like men are susceptible to any kind of disease and that includes heart problems. Keep your heart in shape by feeding on some of these helpful information.

One of the things every woman should watch out for is high blood pressure. If left unchecked, high blood pressure can lead to a fatal heart attack. Women who love to sleep a lot and eat too much salty and cholesterol-rich food are prone to high blood pressure. Lessen cholesterol in your body by eating heart-healthy foods and by exercising regularly.

Experts claim that you can determine whether you have a greater risk for heart diseases or not just by looking at your belly. Too much fat in the belly can mean that your artery walls are blocked with cholesterol and bad fat. Prevent hardening of arteries by including more antioxidant-rich foods in your diet. Fiber has also been found to prevent blood clot and inflammation of the arteries. Combine these two to ensure that your heart remains healthy.

Keeping your relationship problems to yourself can also contribute to various heart problems according to studies. Women who hold back their emotions are more prone to heart attack and stroke than those who know how to vent out their feelings. If you want a good way to keep your heart healthy, try shedding those tears. Crying has been found to help the body release hormones that get rid of stress.

Always be a step ahead of your enemy, which in this case is heart attack. You can do that by taking note of some of the signs and symptoms of heart attack for women. They may include shortness of breath, jaw pain, vomiting, sleep disturbance and anxiety. You will be able to seek help immediately at the first signs of a heart attack if you know these things.

Remember that a healthy heart is always a result of a well-balanced diet and regular physical activity. Exercise in most days of the week to keep not only your heart but your entire body fit and sound. A visit to the clinic every three months will also help you keep your heart in perfect shape.

Low Self Esteem – A deep look at why women tend to have more self-esteem issues than men.

Full Video Transcript Here:

Video Summary:
Women often suffer from low self-esteem. While their issues are perhaps more visible than men’s because of their willingness to own them, there are cultural differences that contribute to this sexual disparity.

The two components of self esteem are self-efficacy and self-respect. Self-efficacy is one’s feeling of being able to trouble-shoot and control one’s life. Self-respect refers to one’s belief in one’s own self-worth and right to happiness. If either of these factors is deficient, self-esteem will suffer.

Cultural norms play a major role in eroding female self-esteem via undermining self-efficacy. Boys are encouraged to aggressively act upon the world, to take an active role in their life. Girls are more often conditioned to be nurturing and conciliatory in anticipation of future family life. The boot camp of life tends to teach and cultivate boys’ power in the world. Girls don’t typically have such an arena to hone their life skills, so they are more easily dominated.

Biology reinforces these roles. Feminine energy throughout nature tends to be more nurturing and conciliatory, while masculine energy tends to be more aggressive and dominant. But self-actualization is equally important to women as it is to men. Women need to learn to embrace their feminine energy while remaining true to their unique direction. By maintaining self-efficacy and therefore their self-esteem, women will be less likely to fall into the trap of co-dependent relationships.

Women, Culture, and Society Course
I am basing my presentation on the prospective roles of women in “men sports”. Women playing sports, mainly “men sports” such as soccer, football, and hockey was not allowed. The smallest thought of it was unimaginable, while the presently the story is different. In modern day, sports have become more modernize, just like technologies, women are seen in various competitions and such success can be seen in the Olympics game. I chose the following 5 articles based on the topics that related to the opinions, progress, and the establishment of women in sports. The article, Challenge and Conformity on “Contested Terrain”: Images of Women in Four Women’s Sport/Fitness Magazines is a sports women magazine evaluating the progress of acceptance as well as the rejection of women in sports by evaluating the differences between both genders in terms of physical ability to play sports. In Perspectives of Women College Athletes on Sport and Gender, I will try to focus more on the behaviors that still feels inappropriate in sports in regards to females being seen as weak. The article describes the characteristics in which what is needed to be a “perfect athlete”. Teaching athletics and gender: A Pedagogical Narrative talks about the same exact issues on the gender roles in sports, having more insight on what techniques women are expected to perform, while also being burgeon by media attention, who are amazed to women playing sports criticizing as well as speculating at such phenomena. The information provided in Tomboys, Dykes, and Girly Girls: Interrogating the Subjectivities of Adolescent Female Athletes discusses how sports are seen as a men’s sport and women involvement is not approved. The article discusses the whole effect culture norms sets our mind and establishes a whole concept of what is seen as what is right and not. Women decide to take action and fight for what they believe should be their right to play sports. The article, Gender, Power, and Sports views on women’s impact in sports. From a local to a global positive impact, the article establishes the improvement on women’s sports and the modernized view we have on it, presently.

One of many mantras we hear as the perfect solution to glowing and youthful skin. Others swear by coconut oil or argan oil, a celebrity brand with unintelligible ingredients or just simple soap. Most women in general, but particularly over 60 are concerned about the onset of an ‘aging’ appearance, and want to have “younger-looking” skin to match the eternal youth brand machine they are exposed to every day. But wouldn’t it be great if instead of talking about “younger looking skin,” we could focus on having “healthy skin” at any age? Here are a few tips for how women over 60 can achieve healthier skin — and feel better!

Don’t Try to Look “Younger”
Stay Out of the Sun
Wash Your Face Before Sleep
Stop Smoking
Don’t Soak Too Long in the Tub
Use Natural Products

Video Rating: / 5 | Now that you’re over sixty, you’ve probably traveled to many wonderful places around the world, alone or with family and friends. Perhaps you chose places for the children, or followed your cultural and heart connections. Now you find yourself an older woman with a slightly different set of criteria. You want to be safe, demand good value and have a desire to explore new and unique places for the independent individual you have become. I for one don’t particularly want to see Disneyland ever again — but that’s just me! So it’s time to see the places you’ve always dreamed about! It is your time! You know what you want. The question is what country will best support your wanderlust!

There are plenty of places that older women will love. Here are just a few ideas:

Visit Mellow Vietnam
Cruise Across Canada
Explore Down Under – Australia and New Zealand
Make Friends in Ireland
Experience the Rainforest in Costa Rica
Go Biking in the Netherlands
