Anger Management

Anger Management

Experiencing anger is extremely dangerous to your health. It causes your adrenaline and blood pressure to rise up at above normal levels. Moreover, you could end up hurting someone or doing something that you will regret later on.

lose-weightHere’s the easiest way to lose weight… specifically, lose inches quickly from your belly, thighs, and butt. It’s the “4 PILLARS” method… and I’m not talking about meals. Follow this and you’ll lose pounds and inches effortlessly.
Easiest Way to Lose Weight
Pillar #1 : Diet
I have 2 simple tips for you in regards to your diet. Eat 1 can of black beans and 3 apples a day. That’s it.
I’m not asking you to change your diet and cut out your favorite foods. I just want you to add these in. Simple enough. Why do this? Because apples and black beans are both high in fiber. They will fill you up and FORCE YOU to cut back on other foods you’re eating.
So you can still eat your favorite foods, but you’ll be eating less of them. Don’t worry… this doesn’t require any effort or willpower. You’ll naturally have to eat less of them because these high fiber foods will make it so you’re less hungry.
Pillar #2 : Exercise
Diet (calories) and exercise are the 2 things people focus on when losing weight. And they should. They’re usually the 2 big ones for most people.
For exercise, I have 1 tip for you. Get either a mini-trampoline or a jump rope and use them for 1-2 minutes at a time during commercials. So watch all the tv you want. Just be sure to get in these “mini-workouts” during most, if not all of the commercials.
Pillar #3 : Sleep
Lack of sleep is a big reason why people who exercise and eat right still don’t lose weight.
You need a normal or above normal amount of sleep to best lose weight. Studies have proven this. There are many theories on why this is… and they seem to contradict the other studies. But one thing they’re in agreement on… get more sleep if you’re trying to lose weight but can’t.
Pillar #4 : Stress Management
Stress is another hidden factor to the weight loss problem. If you have high stress levels, you’ll produce more cortisol (the stress hormone) and will hurt your weight loss efforts. So if you’re eating right and exercising plenty… but still not losing weight, this may be the problem.
I can’t fix your stress levels, but I can help you to minimize the damage they’re doing.
For that, I suggest you do deep breathing. A good 5 minutes of deep breathing will help to relax your mind and body while increasing your oxygen intake. A quick bonus tip… fish oil pills also have a positive affect on your stress levels. So take them as well.
So there you go, those are 4 of the 6 pillars of weight loss. Follow the advice and this will be the easiest way to lose weight for you.

Insecurity?
Insecurity?

The other day I had a visit to my doctor. He diagnosed one new thing about me. He said:

“You feel too insecure.” This word “insecure” forced me towards a sea of thoughts. But there was only one sentence which came out: “Who is not insecure?”.

If I look at my self, I belong to a blessed home. Allah has always been very kind and merciful. Living with parents, having own house, no financial issues, loving and caring family. Admittance of the blessings that I have been blessed with, forces me to think of the people who don’t have these blessings; yet they also have to face the insecurities which have become part and parcel of the environment.

People who go out every day to earn their daily bread, which means the majority of our country these laborers, street vendors, fish mongers, shop keepers even beggars , are they secure in this pathetic condition of peace prevailing in our country? Naturally, it not only affects their psyche but also their earning. Poverty has always been their basic issue and now these unstable and least predictable political and socio-economic conditions over all are like an added misery to them. Just like adding fuel to the fire, blazing in their lives. Therefore, the future is more insecure than before for them.

Then I think of the promising youth, just graduated, full of hopes and enthusiasm, coming to the job market but neither getting good jobs nor dependable business because of the suffering economy. Are they not insecure of their future?

Another thought makes me think about the children who are being brought up and taught in the same insecure environment. My child hood was pretty much clean of these things. At least no suicidal bombings, no killings, no missing persons, no local war zones and no frequent kidnappings were there. Life was not jeopardized by killing inflation and the fear of the prophesized famine. If still I am insecure then what about the future of these children who are growing up in this scene and scenario of destruction and devastation. Will they grow into a psychologically healthy young generation to take all responsibilities of the country?

Then my thoughts floats towards the mothers and wives who see off their sons and husbands every morning and then finds their hearts in great anxiety and discomfort and keeps praying all the time for their safe return until either they come back or the news arrives. And they go through this practice every day. Are they not insecure too?

All these thoughts leave me in utter disappointment. For sometime I feel there is no ray of hope. Then just like a lightning something flashes on the screen of my mind.

ALLAH says:

Nahi hay insaan k liyae, magar wo jis ki os nay koshish ki

My brother often says that we are responsible for most of the things that happen to us. I often disagree with him, because miseries like diseases and major catastrophes are not our faults. But when I ponder upon what he says I partly agree with him. Allah has given most of the things in our own hands. The credit of what ever happens mostly goes to ourselves. The sole purpose of writing all this here is not to diagnose that we are all going to be psychologically insecure patients but to say that it is in our own hands. Instead of just pondering over social issues we need to break our silence. We have to take steps to secure the future of our generations and discourage every feeling of insecurity. Even little steps taken by us will make a difference somehow, as it is said, “Small gains make a heavy purse”. It’s we who are going to change the things and start by making little differences, not the masters. So better come out, express your self in one way or the other, if not for the sake of the mother land then, for the emotional stability of our future generations.

 

A Failed State?

A Failed State?

Sometimes, I really feel myself haunted by the fear of our state being called among failed states. Since I love my country despite all its poor circumstances, and I am biased for it so I never ever would like to wake up to see the sun of the day on which it would be called a failed state or it would be broken to pieces. But if just for a second I put all my bias and patriotism aside and examine the situation carefully and realistically one thing comes in my mind and that is that if I would have been asked to analyze another state whose circumstances would be the same as those of prevailing in our country, had I not evaluated it as a failed state. My mind utters a gloomy ‘yes’. Although my heart wants to resist but I know its all in vain. It is undoubtedly shameful for us that the country which got freedom in the name of Islam with so much effort and struggles is now on the verge of being called afailed state after only 62 years of its existence.

Still there is something in my mind which says that there is no point in being hopeless. After all, being hopeless is not the solution of our problems. People who have become hopeless of our country is neither doing good to themselves nor to the state. We still have time although very little. The need of the time is that we should develop Toleranceand Honesty to our selves. The moment we would develop “honesty to your own self” in us, we would be on the right track.

Undoubtedly the present circumstances and the present scene and scenario of the country somewhat gives us a strong feeling of despair for our future. Each and every field we look into gives a suffocating feeling (Health, education, food, media, politics you name a thing and u ll see ‘All Down’ there) and a spontaneous yell comes out from inside us:

Ufff! What is happening here? What are we doing to ourselves!

In this suffocating environment if we see some hope somewhere it appears like a gust of fresh air. Today I came across the same gust of fresh air and since I love to highlight positive things, I ll share it here. I went to the hospital with my mother to get her physiotherapy done for her cervical. She was in the room and I was waiting outside when a lady came and sat with me. She started the chat by saying that the staff here is very friendly. Patients quickly feel better by their zeal and enthusiasm. I admitted the fact. The lady was although elderly but she was quite friendly to me. I even don’t remember how we continued to chat for a longer time and she told me about her that she has been the principal of one of the leading school systems and now she is working as a visiting faculty at the same place. On further inquiry from my side, she told that the subject she teaches is “Value Education”. That’s where I felt myself more interested. She told further that it is about teaching values. For example, they tell the students about ‘Tolerance’ and how to tolerate each other as a member of the same society. They guide them about developing control over anger. More over she also shared with me that when she inquired from her students about how many of them can not control their anger usually, most of them raised their hands which is of course very unfortunate. (Personally I don’t blame the kids for that because they do what they see elders doing). Then they advice them, share their experiences and problems and do counseling keeping their problems in view. They also focus upon teaching the focused family related values like love and respect for elders, taking care of old people and reacting patiently at things which happen against your will.

A Ray Of Hope

A Ray Of Hope

These are the things which are quickly diminishing from the society. Somehow and somewhere this fact is also greatly responsible for the worsening condition of the society. A good public demonstration of our tolerance level is well exhibited on the roads every day giving rise to the number of road accidents, quarrels in the middle of road between drivers and so on…

When I was in school each and every teacher used to teach values besides her subject. It was a part of the process of education. Media was also playing a good and positive role in teaching moral values. But with the passage of time, when education started to get commercialized and just became a business, “values teaching” got eliminated somewhere, because of being continuously ignored. Since the present education system is more focusing upon hurriedly covering the course contents than the process of learning, teachers really are left with no time during their 40 minutes period to teach something which is other than the course and which is not going to be evaluated in the exam.

In this situation I view this step as a ray of hope. Allocating separate time to the teaching of values and sharing the views, experiences, problems and observations of the students regarding that will be beneficial to the society. No matter how little, but it will make a difference. Its an appreciable step. More over the thing that I appreciate more is that the school system has on its agenda, the special counseling sessions with the parents too, to remind them and bring to their notice how their children are getting influenced by the behaviours parents exhibit at home and outside home. Definitely I am not going to name the school here because in that case all this would be taken as a publicity stunt. Its just that the strong feeling of despair and hopelessness that I continuously feel these days was somewhat soothed by this. At least there are some people who are focusing on reminding us our lost moral values which are quickly becoming extinct due to our own ignorance as well as the mercy of the westernized and ‘Indianized’ media.

I am really upset and angry at a morning show today and I want to share my anger and grief. On the day when the nation was celebrating the freedom of judiciary, the host of the morning show on ARY showed somewhat negative attitude by asking what will happen if the chief justice is back now. One of the guests on her show that day, a young host of some radio station also showed disgust towards what is happening in politics and remarked:

Pata nahi hamari Kom Kub Seekhay Gi. What is the point in being so happy and distributing sweets? What difference is it going to make? I don’t know and don’t want to know who our chief justice is and what all the fuss is about?

Such a bold display of ignorance and irresponsible behavior, and that too from a DJ of a radio programme who is currently being seen on one of the leading channels of Pakistan on live television network! The host of the show agreed and that too was shocking. Don’t they know that media has some serious responsibilities towards the nation…? At least they should not pollute the thoughts of other youngsters through their programme. I was shocked to hear the expression of such immature ideas. If such people (which are quite a hot favourite radio channel among youth these days) are running FM then I am really feeling hopeless and pathetic for the future of Pakistan. If Youth are getting this kind of exposure, there is no future.

I just want to tell such kind of young people (whose more serious concerns are the celebration of valentine’s day and Basant than the celebration of national events or the success of political and serious matters which are going to determine the future of Pakistan) that you are the ones who are at least partly responsible for all the wrong people coming and ruling over us because these wrong people are aware of the fact that you guys don’t know and that you have no interest in the prosperity of your country. And your weakness is their main strength.

I want to tell such kind of “cool guys” that if you can not bother to play your role as well educated and responsible citizens for the prosperity and stability of your country you have no right to expect anything from your country either. You have no right to make grievances against the bad circumstances and the poor medical conditions, the dirty streets and broken roads, the painful condition of peace and increasing crime rate, least opportunities and jobless ness. If you don’t know your “duties” you deserve no “rights” because people who do not know how to “give” obviously do not deserve to “take”.

I would take a chance to make a plea to the producers and directors of such programs in all channels that please only those people should be invited as guests on the shows who really are role models for the youth or at least can teach them something, an advice or a lesson through the example of their life. People having immature or superficial thoughts should not be given projection because media has instant impact on tender young minds and at this time, we need to handle and lead things very maturely.
