Why We need to be positive !

There are plenty of reasons for us to invoke the power of positive thinking in ourselves, but most of the benefits of a positive attitude can be sized into one of these more prominent "Big Three Lesses" below:

1. Less Stress 
Imagine all the times you were complaining about somebody or something - chances are those negative feelings were leaving their mark on you in the form of stress.A lot of times, an occasional complaint may seem like an instant stress reliever. But what about such an attitude in the long run?

Getting into the habit of constant grousing, particularly over trivialities or things not directly in our control (like other people's attitude, for instance), is a sure fire way to invite the negative power of stress into our being.
Since stress feeds on negativity, reducing stress is a good reason to eliminate negativity and stay positive in life. 

"Attitude is everything. Instead of thinking about what you're missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing." -Unknown

2. Less Worry 
There will not be too many who say they enjoy being in a state of worry. While worry itself has adverse affects on us, like yes, more stress again, the feeling of worry is not something most of us relish.
Thinking positively, and using positive words and phrases in our internal dialogue with ourselves and others, is known to actually reduce these feelings of worry.
And along with it, the feelings of frustration, disappointment or other negative emotions that may accompany it, are also reduced, if not eliminated to a great extent.
Of course there will be times - like health, financial or personal security situations - when it is quite natural to experience worry.
It is important to realize that the power of positive thinking is not a universal prescription to eliminate all kinds of worries from our life.
But, here is where a positive mental attitude scores:It frees up our creative mind to enable us to possibly come up with a solution to our problem - where none seemed in sight before - or at least get us to compromise with the situation, a bit quicker than otherwise, from the state of worry.
Of course, we all experience situations in our lives which - for the lack of better word - "warrant" worry.
And for those situations, time itself will have to provide solutions, or the necessary healing.
But, most of situations we do experience can do without the nagging worry tagging alongside; and the power of positive thinking helps you get there quicker.

3. Less Fear 
This is the last, but certainly not the least important of the benefits of a positive attitude. Less fear translates to more self confidence, and a positive self esteem.
This reason alone is worth the "price of admission" into the the "daily positive thoughts" mindset.Imagine what a more self confident you can do! And imagine what a positive self esteem can do to you!.Fear gnaws at our self esteem, and erodes our self confidence like nothing else; and worse, sometimes these fears escalate into anxiety attacks as well.
 Positive phrases, thoughts and mindset help you face your fears - slowly, its not an overnight fix, but surely - and do the things you fear, and that helps in improving self confidence.With the improved power of confidence, you can repeat your performance a little better next time, and that reduces your fear even further - confidence builds on itself - until the fear is completely gone; but remember, it all begins with a positive thought.
Of course keep in mind that, while it helps, the power of positive thinking alone may not be the only sufficient "medication" for dealing with certain kinds of medically recognized fears, or more accurately phobias.
A consultation with a professional may become necessary to handle the specific situation in those circumstances.
Now that we got the 'Why' out of the way, it is time to move on to the 'How' - How to avail these benefits of a positive attitude? How exactly, can we call upon this power of positive thinking to serve our needs the best? It is easier than you might think.

Appetite Loss in Toddlers, Reasons and Solutions

Appetite Loss in Toddlers
Feeding a toddler can be a challenge. Seemingly overnight, your good little eater turns into Mr. Picky. As you watch him push away foods that used to be favorites, turn up his nose at anything green and absolutely refuse to try anything new, you wonder if he can really survive on what seems like a handful of food each day. Most of the time, a decrease in appetite in toddlerhood is normal, but if your child is pale, lethargic or tired all the time, sees his doctor.
Why Appetite Drops A toddler doesn't need to eat as much or as often as he did as an infant. His appetite drops because his growth rate slows. If he kept up the growth rate of the first year, when he tripled his weight and doubled his height, he'd be around 60 pounds and 5 feet tall at age 2. Since he'll grow just 3 inches and gain 3 to 5 pounds between the ages of 1 and 2, his appetite will decrease. To achieve this gain, he needs to consume between 1,000 to 1,400 calories per day, accordi…



Hemophilia is an inherited disease in which your blood does not clot. People with hemophilia lack or have low levels of one of two blood-clotting substances, known as factor VIII and factor IX. As a result, they may bleed for a long time after an injury. They may also experience internal bleeding, especially in the joints. There are two types of hemophilia -- type A and type B. Hemophilia is the most common inherited bleeding disorder. About 17,000 people in the U.S. have the condition.

The blood of someone with hemophilia will not clot normally. Bleeding may occur spontaneously or followinginjury.Hemophiliaoccurs in 2 forms, hemophilia A and B. In both forms, a gene is defective. The defective gene interferes with the ability of the body to produce the clotting factors that allow for normal clotting. The result is a tendency for abnormal, excessive bleeding.
·  Hemophilia A occurs in 1 in 10,000 people. Hemophilia B occurs in 1 in 40,000.
·  With either disorder, …

How many calories one should eat !

The number ofcalories you should eat each day depends on several factors, including your age, size, height, sex, lifestyle, and overall general health. A physically active 6ft 2in male, aged 22 years, requires considerably more calories than a 5ft 2ins sedentary woman in her 70s. How many calories do I need per day? The Harris-Benedict equation, also known as the Harris-Benedict principle, is used to estimate what a person's BMR (basal metabolic rate) and daily requirements are. The person's BMR total is multiplied by another number which represents their level of physical activity. The resulting number is that person's recommended daily calorie intake in order to keep theirbody weightwhere it is.
This equation has limitations. It does not take into account varying levels of muscle mass to fat mass ratios - a very muscular person needs more calories, even when resting.
