Choosing the perfect occupation that you will enjoy in your adult life

Choosing a career or choosing a lifelong occupation is a very serious matter. The choice that one makes usually determines what will become of the person. Many times the choosing of an occupation is not done with proper information and many times people do not approach the issue with the sobriety that is necessary for such an undertaking.

The choices of one’s future is usually something that people are encouraged to think about from when they are very young. Small kids are usually taught and exposed to the various occupations or careers that are available and they are asked to choose one which will best suit them. However, many people make their decision when they are joining college. This is many times because the course that one pursues in college usually determines what field one will work in.

Many times people are not able to make the right choice even at this stage. This is because, just as mentioned above, they are ill informed and maybe they are also not sure of themselves. It could also be due to being fed with poor information. Many times the society praises a few occupations while ignoring others and so people are led to thinking that these praised occupations are good not realizing that they are not suited for them.

While growing up, I had similar challenges like all the other kids when it came to the issue about what I wanted to be when I grew up. I was not sure about what I really wanted and so like many other kids, I would say that I wanted to be a doctor, an engineer, a pilot, a lawyer, a scientist, a dentist, or any other occupation that I knew would impress whoever was asking me.

I however did not fancy any of these occupations. They all looked like very boring occupations and I was resigned to believe that I would have a very boring adult life.

My passions as a kid were very few. I had very strict parents and being an only child, and a girl for that matter, made them very protective of me. My mother was so protective of me that I could not be able to freely go out and play with other kids when I was a little girl. As such, many times I was stuck with my mother in the house.

Just like any child, I however still found things to enjoy in my environment. The thing I liked most while helping my mother with the house chores was the preparation of food. I especially liked making salads and fruit puddings. I liked making them as attractive as possible. As a small girl my mother would not let me cook using the open fire and I was only allowed to cook using safe kitchen appliances such as the electric pressure cooker or the rice cooker.

I was however eventually allowed to participate in all cooking and I developed a great passion for it.

Since I did not know much about any other thing, I therefore chose cookery as the choice career for my future.

The 1+ Dietary Equation

Prenatal vitamins are crucial for a woman who is pregnant or looking to become pregnant. They keep the body healthy and strong as well as your unborn child. More often than not, women are not getting enough nutrition from their daily diet to keep themselves nourished and healthy. Continue to read to find out about the best prenatal vitamins available to expectant mothers and why they are so important.

There are many benefits that come with taking a prenatal vitamin while pregnant. What most women do not realize is that prenatal vitamins are much different than your typical vitamin. Prenatal vitamins contain folic acid which assists with any neural tube defects that may occur in your child. These are defects that impact your child’s spinal cord as well as their brain. The iron that is in a prenatal vitamin helps prevent the mother from becoming anemic which can also deeply impact the baby.

Prenatal vitamins contain folic acid, calcium, iron, vitamin C, Zinc, Copper, Vitamin B-6, and Vitamin D. These should not be used as a substitute for good nutrition. You need to make sure you are still maintaining a healthy diet. The calcium will be very helpful especially in your final trimester. Calcium helps to build your baby’s bones and keep them strong. It is crucial that you keep a lot of calcium in your diet including the prenatal vitamin. One thing prenatal vitamins do not contain are omega-3 fatty acids which you will find in fish. So make sure you keep fish in your diet if you are able to.

Iodine is something else that is typically found in prenatal vitamins. The greater amounts of iodine your body has the less hormonal you will be during your pregnancy. If you do not have the right amount of iodine intake, you run the risk of congenital hypothyroidism and even miscarriage or stillbirth. Vitamin D is also essential in expectant mothers. This also helps to keep bones healthy in the mother as well as the child. It also can prevent a painful pregnancy and childbirth.

It is important to talk to your OB-GYN before you begin taking a prenatal vitamin. They can typically prescribe you a vitamin that best suits your needs. If you are already someone who has a very healthy diet they can prescribe one that is built around that. There are some expectant mothers that will require more vitamins others, so always keep that in mind.

A prenatal vitamin can be crucial to you and your baby’s health. It can keep you at your healthiest while carrying your precious cargo, while also keeping your baby growing healthy and strong. Too much is not always a good thing so make sure you consult your doctor.

Exercising has a number of benefits not just for your physical health but your mental health as well.


Doing a crunch with a twist has the ability to work your obliques as well as your abdomen. You will lie down on the floor as if you are going to do a sit up. Put your hands behind your head and lift your right shoulder off of the ground and over to the opposite side. You will rotate sides with each crunch. This exercise works your abdomen which indirectly strengthens your spine as well as your entire back.

Planks and Push-ups

A plank is very similar to a push-up except you are placing your arms on the ground to do the pushing up and down. You are pushing yourself up and down while keeping your toes places firmly to the ground. The plank works the abs but also works the upper and lower back by strengthening the muscles. Push-ups are also good for your abs and your back, just not as intense. One of the benefits to doing push-ups is it helps to strengthen your shoulder region. It is also known to help your posture and you will start noticing a difference after doing them consistently.

Keeping yourself healthy is the key to a long and happy life. Having the right tools you need to exercise is one of the keys to success.

Hypoallergenic Dog Breeds: fact or Myth?

Hypoallergenic Dog Breeds: fact or Myth?

Today we will focus on the Basset Hound. Basset hounds can be one of the most challenging breeds to own, but they can be one of the most rewarding family members that you can ever have.  Not only are basset hounds loyal, hypoallergenic, small to medium in size, low in energy and friendly with every other pet you can find, but they are great with kids too. Basset hounds are charming, to say the least.

Unlike most breeds, basset hounds stand out like a sore thumb. You can tell them from a mile away and they have very unusual characteristics.

What does a basset hound look like?

Basset hounds have solid body mass and an extremely heavy weight in consideration to their body weight. They are low to the ground and have stumpy legs.

Basset hounds are one of the few true breeds that are recognized in France.

Benefits of a Basset Hound

Basset hounds are a great dog for hunting and they have an amazing sense of smell. They are considered hypoallergenic and they love to play. Which makes them a great pet for kids. They come in many different colors, including bicolor or tricolors, but these colors rarely occur.

Basset hounds are gentlemen and ladies of the dog world. They are extremely cordial and they are very friendly with people in general. They do not make very good guard dogs, unless they are charged with caring for children. They are easy to train and are extremely food driven animals.

Basset hounds can learn commands easily, but they do not respond well to strict punishment. Unless you are prepared for a lifetime of gently swaying a dog away from behaviors, a basset hound is not for you. If you punish a basset too harshly, they will withdraw, shut down and become permanently stubborn.

Caring for your Hypoallergenic Basset

Many dogs can be considered hypoallergenic, but it does take some work to keep them that way. They require regular washing and brushing to keep loose hairs from shedding.  You must keep around their eyes wiped continuously, since they are prone to eye infections.

Since you are looking for a hypoallergenic dog, you will understand their great strife. Basset hounds can easily develop allergies to many things. These allergies affect their ears, eyes and skin most often. It is important that you keep these areas clean, or they can begin to develop a bad odor from the bacteria.

It is important to keep around their mouth’s wiped as well, as the folds of their skin can easily build up yeast, causing an infection in this area that spreads to their mouth. This area should be wiped several times per day with a dry towel to prevent yeast build up and to prevent them from developing an infection.

The Downside to the Basset

The basset hound is a very prey driven dog. It should not be housed in an area that contains chickens or other animals that can be considered small prey. They will chase squirrel and cats that they are not familiar with.
