Risk factors of dementia
Today, I am covering tips for avoiding dementia as you age.
In this podcast, I will outline the risks and risk factors of dementia.
Ageing is the most significant risk factor for dementia.
While there is no changing that we will age, there are lots of things you can do to reduce your risk.
It is entirely up to you.
Frankly, dementia scares me.
The key to adopting a healthier lifestyle is to build it into your regular daily routine.
Get your friends and family to support you, or better yet, join you.
Until we meet again, get out there each and every single day and be outstanding.
Better and Healthier Boundaries
Today, I am covering tips for better and healthier boundaries.
In this podcast, I will suggest several ways to tell if you need better boundaries and present five ways to help you set boundaries.
First off, we all have boundaries.
Maybe you don’t feel like you do, because of the many times in the past when people have overrun your boundaries.
Establishing boundaries for ourselves is a necessary part of life.
All creatures set boundaries.
The challenge is that not everyone has learned how to create boundaries or how to communicate them and enforce them well.
There are several warning signs that your boundaries need work.
Here are some of them, but this list is not meant to be exhaustive.
- You feel guilty whenever you do something for you or indulge yourself.
- You agree to things you don’t agree with to avoid ‘rocking the boat.’
- You tend to say ‘yes’ even when you want to say ‘no’ when people ask you to do things.
- When someone bullies you, and you stay silent.
- You feel like you are the one who does all the giving in your relationships.
- When someone is in your personal space, you don’t say anything, despite how uncomfortable you feel.
- You don’t speak up when the joke isn’t funny, or it’s at your expense.
- You worry all the time about what people think of you.
- You’re frequently playing the victim.
- People take you for granted.
- When someone tells you to ‘do something for yourself’ you have no idea what to do.
- You over-share when talking to others about yourself.
- You take on other people’s guilt as though that will absolve them somehow.
- You’re in a career that was chosen for you, rather than in one that you want to do. For example, you might work in a family business you had no desire to be part of.
- You wind up in relationships with controlling individuals.
- You see yourself as the ‘sacrifice.’
- You feel like people won’t like you if you don’t do things for them.
- You use actions as currency with people by doing things in hopes that they will someday do something for you in return.
- And finally, hearing this list is making you feel uncomfortable because you’ve already recognised more than one thing on it that sounds like you.
PERFECTION | MiM
To strive for perfection in our work is a trait that is admirable and appreciated when it comes to creating something out of your hands or using materials to create wondrous things for other people.
Everyone wants everybody to do a good job on their works.
Slacking off and taking the fastest mental shortcuts may not be in your favor if you happen to be the creator, the mastermind of an invention.
If we can strive for perfection in our works, we can make things become more enjoyable, more pleasurable to look at, easier to understand, easier to get through obstacles, easier to help you find and improve your work.
A simple change of perspective toward procrastination can help you get rid of it.
Most people would tell you to try these steps to stop procrastination:
- Not to think of what you have to do and just do it
- Keep track of your activities
- Plan ahead/have a time table
- Break it down into simpler sub-tasks
But most procrastinators know that none of this actually helps.
You can make as many time-tables as you want, simplify the tasks you have at hand, it only helps so much.
At the end of the day you will go: ‘Meah! I’ll do it later, I have still got time‘.
It all comes down to this.
When we procrastinate, we see it as our own decision.
A decision to postpone allwork at hand. And according to us, our decisions are always right, aren’t they?
But when we start to see that decision of postponing work as someone else’s, when we start to see it as a fight, a fight that we are losing, we start to act!
We start to fight back!
There are a lot of approaches to becoming more confident, but for me, the answer has been developing what psychologists call, “self-efficacy,” or what I like to call, “getting shi*** done.”
Self-confidence is determined by your self-esteem, a gauge of how much you like yourself.
You can build esteem in many ways – being beautiful, driving a nice car, having celebrity status, and being capable.
Some of those things are out of reach, but we can always be capable.
Self-esteem is made up of all the interpersonal relationships and experiences you’ve had in your life.
Everyone you’ve ever met has added to or taken away from how you see yourself!
How to Build Mental Toughness
Today, we are talking about how to build mental toughness. Most people live their entire lives pleasing others – not wanting to look silly because of what they love to do, afraid of failing because it will look bad, not taking chances in something they want, or not even getting assistance with their problems because they feel it looks “weak.”
Developing mental toughness asks you to be authentic – no matter what that looks like.
Be yourself – no matter what that looks like.
There is no one mentally tougher than the person who is unapologetically themselves.
Own it. Embrace it – flaws and all, and there is no way anyone can hurt you or stop you.
