Importance of Health and Media Literacy

Although research suggests that children’s eating habits are formed even before they enter the classroom – children as young as two may already have dietary preferences based on their parents’ food choices – health education can play a vital role in helping establish lifelong healthy patterns early.

Research shows that health education has a positive impact on health behaviors as well as academic achievement, and that the most effective means of improving health literacy is ensuring that health education is included in curriculum at all levels of education.

U.S. schools educate 54 million students daily, and can provide not only an outlet to promote healthy behaviors for children and adolescents, but a place for them to engage in these behaviors, including eating healthy and participating in physical activity.

The U.S. is in great need of an improvement in health literacy. In a 2007 UNICEF study, our country ranked last out of 21 industrialized countries in overall child health and safety 心臟超聲波. Approximately one in five of our high school students are smokers, 80 percent of students do not eat the recommended five servings of vegetables and fruits per day, and more than 830,000 adolescents become pregnant each year. Approximately two thirds of the American population is estimated to be overweight or obese.

Furthermore, our understandings of health and health-related behaviors are often highly influenced by the media and media images – which can lead to inaccurate assumptions and negative health behaviors and attitudes.

How important is our health? Pretty important right! Your health is actually by far the most valuable asset in your life, you can have all the material possessions in the world, an abundance of wealth and shiny object’s yet it will mean little to nothing if you’re in poor health.

In fact I can assure you there are people out there who have wealth and material possessions in abundance who are in poor health and they’d more than likely happily trade their wealth and possessions for optimal health.

Many people often over-look this important fact when applying the Law of Attraction. Just because you may be in good health doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive to maintain and improve your health. Far to many people become absorbed by the material riches that the Law of Attraction can offer and neglect both their physical and mental health.

If you’re in good health physically then you operate better on a mental level and the same rule applies in reverse. If you want the Law of Attraction to improve your quality of life then you need to focus on your health, if you’re feeling fit and well your mind will be a lot clearer and thus your manifestation efforts will improve.

So how can we improve our health through the Law of Attraction?

Firstly you need to remove yourself from the mindset of being deserving of optimal health and understand that thought manifestation alone won’t bring you the results you desire. The Law of Attraction is an aide for re-programming your subconscious not a miracle worker!

If you’re to experience the health you desire then you must commit to educating yourself on maintaining a proper diet and invoke certain lifestyle changes. The underlying principle of maintaining good health is to ensure the body gets the nutritional requirements it needs and to engage in exercise.

Apart from the obvious such as diet and exercise you can adopt certain lifestyle changes that will have a positive impact on your health and more importantly will help you develop a more positive mindset. Try to think outside the box, refrain from over-priced pills your doctor recommends, resort to spiritual practices such as meditation and yoga, these are great for improving both your mental and physical state of being.

Yoga actually integrates nicely when using the Law of Attraction and is great for improving your physical health as well as mental well-being. It involves strict disciplines which few actually master, I am constantly working on my Yoga practices, it’s an art not a science!

Practicing Yoga though can add clarity to your thoughts and help you keep the positive frame of mind required to get the desired results you long for when applying the Law of Attraction.

What if my health is poor? If you’re in poor health and focusing your thoughts towards being in poor health and not being in good health then you’re only dampening your manifestation efforts for improved health!

Let’s say for instance you get a crippling headache (I get migraines a lot), ever notice how if you concentrate on how bad the headache is it will only worsen yet if you take your mind away from it seems to get better. These are your thoughts influencing this process.
