Motivation at Work

Does this sound familiar to you when you hear it? "I hate my job, I hate getting up early and
driving to work, I hate working, but I have got to pay my bills. "This is a cry for help. You lack motivation and you will continue to be unhappy until you fulfill the void in your life. explain why do you do you yourself.

Theorists such as Maslow, Hertzberg, McGregor and McClelland suggest that human beings are reacting to their natural needs in such a way to satisfy them. According to theorists, the two main views of human motivation are the need reduction and the positive driving. The need reduction is the one used to satisfy bodily hunger, thirst, and sleep. Positive chasing is the need to strengthen your relationship with society. According to Abraham Maslow, there are five need levels. He believes that people exist in a hierarchy of needs ranging from physiological, social, safety, esteem and self actualization. This is the "Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs Theory."
Based on theory, you can be motivated by your needs as well as by your spiritual beliefs. You need to know that no one can make you happy, but you. The boss can help you, if you let him, but you are responsible for your own happiness in life. If nothing else is stimulating you, then you need to motivate yourself. The following examples on needs and beliefs are two ways in which you can be motivated:

Example of Needs:

You are hungry and it is your lunch hour. The dental office is crowded and an emergency patient just walked in the door. The dentist ask you to assist with the preparation of the emergency patient. If you are starving you will eat your lunch. If you are slowly hungry, you will assist with the preparation of the emergency patient. Your priority is based on your perception of how that action will affect that need.

Example of Belief:

You have been late every day for a week. The dentist has warned you about being late because he needs you to open the office. Today, you have the choice of stopping by a fast food restaurant and treating yourself to breakfast or getting to work on time. If you believe that you could be fired for not arriving to work on time, you will probably skip breakfast at the fast food restaurant. If you believe that you will not get in trouble, then you will probably stop by the restaurant and eat breakfast before going to work.

A Few Simple Tips For Finding A Great Dentist

Finding a great dentist isn’t easy. Whether you live in Hawaii or Wichita, this can be a daunting task, especially if you haven’t been to a dentist for a while. But look no further, than this article. Finding a dentist is easier than you think if you simply apply the tips that follow.

Ask People You Know

A great way to find a dentist is to ask other people that you know and trust. Ask your family, colleagues or friends. Often they will have good recommendations. In addition to asking what dentist they recommend, ask about other qualitative factors. Find out if the dentist is friendly, has a nice waiting room and has a great staff.

What if you are new to an area?

If you are new to an area, you may not know anyone who can recommend a great dentist. So what do you do in this scenario? Ask credible people who are in a position to know who the best dentists are. Often hospitals and other health facilities employ the services of a number of dentists. So they are in a great position to know who the best dentists are. All you need to do is call them up and ask for a recommendation.

You can also ask a local dental school. Dental schools are in a great position to know who the best dentists are in the area. In addition, dental schools may even offer lower rates than a regular dentist for dental care. Sure, you will have students performing your dental care, but they will be well supervised by extremely experience dentists who know what they are doing.

Use the Internet

Now days, everything is on the web. Search for a website that lists dentists in your area along with patient reviews. Look for a dentist that is convenient for you and also look at their reviews. Make sure that their patients have a lot of good things to say about them. And if a dentist has a lot of negative reviews, look elsewhere.

Also visit the dentist’s website. You can learn a lot by checking out their website. Does the dentist offer all of the dental services required to meet their needs? You can also get a feel for the dentist’s personality by the way they have designed their site and what they talk about on their website. And if the dentist has posted a video, then you are really in luck. You can get a good sense of their personality too.

Special Dental Needs

When choosing a dentist, you should also consider your special dental needs. If you have healthy teeth, choosing a dentist is easier as all dentists are able to do the basics like cleanings and taking x-rays. But if you have crooked teeth you may want a dentist that specializes in orthodontics. Or if you want your teeth to look better you may want a dentist that specializes in cosmetic dentistry and so on.

Three Most Essential Uses of Potassium Permanganate

Are you familiar with the deep purple solution your mother applies to your skin when you had a bad case of athlete’s foot? It did a great, didn’t it?

That solution is made by dissolving potassium permanganate crystals in water. Potassium permanganate is an inorganic but water soluble compound. It is also known as Condy’s crystals and permanganate of potash.

This chemical has a strong oxidizing property that is why it is very useful in many applications. However, one of its more popular uses is in medicine, as an antiseptic and fungicide. It has also been used in water treatment by the army to render potable water. But this practice has been discontinued because it causes stains on the teeth.

Medicinal Uses

Potassium permanganate is dissolved in warm water to come up with a nice pink colored solution which is then ideal for treatment of skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, and fungal infections of the hands and feet.

Immersion in potassium permanganate has been proven to be effective for skin conditions but this is largely unpopular because of the stains and discolorations it leaves on the bathing materials such as towels and the bath tub. This can be addressed, however, with dissolving the right amount of crystals. A concentration of 1:10,000 will result to a pink color. Using too much and the water goes black and results to a rather nice but fake tan.

A weak solution of potassium permanganate has been formerly used as an antiseptic wash for vaginal thrush, vulvovaginitis as well as persistent urine infection in both children and adults. It has also been applied as a vaginal douche after childbirth way before the use of antibiotics.

Treatment of Fish Diseases

Potassium permanganate is an effective treatment for various fish diseases and parasites. It is helpful in treating bacterial gill infection and skin ulcers. It dramatically improves water quality by reducing the biological oxygen demand as a result of the oxidation of the dissolved organic matter in the water.

It is commercially used as an oxidizing agent in fish ponds to react with organic matter including bacteria, algae, particulates as well as organic sediments. It is very important to calculate the exact amount of needed chemical for the volume of water since it can cause extensive damage or even death of your fish. It can be used as a pest control for parasitic nudibranches in your aquarium.

However, frequent treatment can harm your fish so wait for a reasonable period before repeating treatment. Disperse the solution evenly throughout the pond and aerate your pond properly after treatment.

Water Treatment

Having a strong oxidizing capacity, potassium permanganate is ideal for use in water treatment. It removes from the water, iron and magnesium which give water its unpleasant color and unpalatable taste. It is added to the water for treatment especially those which come from sources deep into the ground. It also reduces rust in the pipes and other water equipment.

To prevent cholera and other water-borne diseases, …

Tooth Bonding Advantages For Your Dental Health

The tooth bonding procedure utilizes a composite resin and is used for a variety of structural as well as cosmetic purposes. One can draw a parallel between tooth bonding materials and a sculptor's clay. By using dental composite resin bonding your dentist can restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolor your smile.

"Today bonding can be used to do many types of dentistry." Bonding is the chemical preparation of hard tooth structure, both enamel and dentin, to cause micro pores that the bonding agent fills and locks into ", says Joseph Preziosi Jr., DMD.

What is Tooth Bonding?

Tooth bonding is a composite resin filling placed in the back teeth as well as the front teeth. The composites are the solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color of your teeth or the reshaping of teeth. Tooth bonding will lighten any stains you may have, close up minor gaps and can be used to correct crooked teeth.

Basically, bonding will cover any natural flaws applying a thin coating of a plastic material on the front surface of your teeth. After this, your cosmetic dentist will apply a tooth bonding material and sculpt, color and shape it to provide a pleasant result. A high-intensity light then hardens the plastic, and the surface is finely polished.

Tooth bonding, also known as composite or dental bonding, is an excellent way to fix cosmetic and structural imperfections in the teeth. Tooth bonding can repair cracked, chipped, and discolored teeth as well as replace silver amalgam fillings. Cosmetic tooth bonding can also repair misaligned teeth, providing a straighter, more uniform smile.

Tooth Bonding Technique

Composite tooth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry technique that can work wonders for your smile. Using materials that match the shade, translucency and texture of your teeth, tooth gaps can be closed, spots, chips, and discolorations can be eliminated, and your self-confidence can be enhanced through the improved appearance of your smile. It's also great for an instant repair of a broken front tooth.

The Tooth Bonding Procedure

To begin the teeth bonding procedure, the dentist selects a composite resin (dental bonding material) that matches the natural shade of your teeth. The dentist then roughens the existing tooth so the resin can adhere properly. Next, the composite resin is carefully applied to the tooth, shaped, and smoothed to achieve the desired look. It is then quickly hardened by a high intensity light. Lastly, the bonded tooth is buffed and polished so it has the same appearance as the surrounding teeth.

A very mild etching solution is applied to your teeth to create very small crevices in the tooth ''s enamel structure. These small crevices provide a slightly rough surface permitting a durable resin to bond materials to your teeth. The resin is then placed on your tooth and high-intensity light cures the resins onto your tooth's surface – with each individual layer of resin hardening in just minutes. When the last …

Spiritual Medicine, Computers & The Brain – Rebooting The Wisdom And Spirit Of The Body And Mind

“Calmness or harmony is a natural aspect of the mind.” – Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, January 2000

When I think of the term ‘spiritual’ in combination with medicine or healing, it brings forth divergent images. One is the evangelist preacher, gasping on each breath as he talks about the healing spirit of God, palming the forehead of his collapsing follower. Another is the tribal shamanic healer, adorned as an animal, chanting and gyrating around his ‘client’. Alternately, I think of the healing group meditating or praying for a beloved member or a stranger on the other side of the world, or a silent healer, eyes closed, holding her hands over the afflicted individual.

Whether we believe a particular form of spiritual medicine works or not, the term is often used to describe the evocation of a force external to the suffering person that enters them in an often mysterious fashion to create a change. It is often attributed to a subtle energy, exchanged from one person to another or from a higher power (God) to the person to be healed.

Another understanding of spiritual healing exists, however, one in which the healing force does not arise from the outside but instead is the upwelling of the wisdom or spirit of the body itself, restoring functions to areas that were dysfunctional. The body ‘knew’ how to work correctly once so is that knowledge now lost?

If there is an inner spirit, an inner wisdom, for each body part, organ, gland and the abilities or functions of those parts, how does it get lost or subverted into disease? To understand one mechanism at least, we need to look at learning.

Spirit becomes a functional life through learning

Every living organism, from a single celled organism to an insect or a human, has something in common, they all LEARN.

Even the very beating of the heart is learning, passed down genetically. All function, whether it is the secretion of a hormone or a complex act like cooking breakfast, is formatted by learning. Learning is the mechanism the wisdom of the body uses to interact with the complexity of life. Learning may be called the means life uses to express itself.

Of course, this learning isn’t from books; it is picked up automatically, on-the-fly. It is the result making uncounted numbers of tiny decisions at every moment, and organizing those decisions into an automatic behavior that is then repeated and applied to future situations, without any decision when needed.

From the simple act of cooking breakfast we can see many examples of the complexity of learning. The feeling of hunger, for instance, and its interpretation is the sum total of all the times in the past that you were hungry, what foods you like or don’t like, what you learned growing up about satisfaction of needs, what you have come to think of as good food, all of that is learning. The muscles used for cooking, postures of standing and using a spatula, when …

Private Health Insurance

Health insurance offered by different companies may vary slightly at certain levels but first it is important to make the choice as to what kind fits your requirements.

When we decide to buy a private health insurance the first few issues we have to confront are, "for what do we need health insurance", "how much health insurance will be enough" and "about how much can I afford to spend on it . " Instead of answering these questions first and then look for insurance you can even take the way round. Know what is available, see what they offer and then take decision. There are numerous options at hand to choose from.

The first choice to be made is between health insurance policy for family or separate health plan for everyone.

Individual Health Insurance

Individual health insuranceis, as the name suggests, taken for single individual. It can be bought for each family member separately. The sum insured in this case is available for the single person insured. Premium depends upon the age of the individual and sum insured. Each policy needs to be managed as a separate policy.

Cardiovascular Health

Aerobic-type exercise is great for your cardiovascular system. There is plenty of this kind of activity in rugby, as players run, sprint, tackle and throw the ball. This helps to get the heart and lungs functioning better, providing long-term health benefits and making future exercise easier. Studies have shown that those who regularly play rugby have lower pulse rates.

Diabetes

Millions of people in the UK are suffering from diabetes, many of these having Type 2 which could be impacted by lifestyle choices. Strenuous activity like rugby has shown to positively impact how the metabolism responds to insulin, making it far less likely to suffer the onset of age-related diabetes.

Weight Management

Rugby is known for its sudden bursts of energy, followed by more sedate periods. This type of sport is known as high intensity interval training. The main benefit of this type of activity is its effect on abdominal fat. When you combine HIIT with a calorie-controlled diet, evidence shows a definite tendency to reduce overall body fat.

Muscular Strength

Much of rugby training is focused on having great explosive power to make a sprint. This is a perfect activity for reducing body fat and developing lean muscle.

Inflammation Reduction

There are many health conditions where inflammation plays a part, such as arthritis for example. Many types of exercise can help improve the chances of suffering from inflammation-prone conditions, keeping us fitter and healthier for longer. Rugby is particularly good at reducing the chances of future suffering, as seen in studies where participants engaged in 40 mins of rugby every day for 7 days. The result was that scientists agreed rugby helped to regulate glucose disposal and inflammatory cytokines.

Better Mood

Sport and exercise is well-known for its mood-lifting properties. The release of endorphins gives you a buzz after exercise which help to lower stress, anxiety and depression. Sport is also said to increase creativity, critical thinking and improve concentration levels.
