health & well being

Your pet seems a bit sick? Take it to the vet.

Your pet is injured? Take it to the vet.

You think something might be wrong with your pet but you’re not sure? Take it to the vet.

Your pet’s health and well being should be as prioritized as your own and you’re not going to just sit at home with a broken bone or large cut or a strange lump and “hope” it heals up fine

Let’s be crystal clear: The Senate Republican healthcare repeal bill is a savage, immoral attack on women and the health and well-being of hundreds of millions of Americans. Take action by calling your Senator: 1-866-665-4470

anonymous asked:

Could you tell your uneducated followers, such as myself, some more about Ramadan? You're allowed to eat between sunset and sunrise, just not during the day? Are there rules about working during Ramadan if you have a job? Obviously some people can't take time off, but is it preferable to stay home with family? Do some countries, that you know of, recognize it as a holiday and give time off to Muslim citizens? Do you really fast everyday for the whole month!?

Sure. :)

From sunrise and sunset we can’t eat, drink, smoke or have sex. Obviously, if you live in a country with extremely long hours of sunlight it is a little different. 

You are allowed to go about your day as normal as possible. It is advisable to spend time with family and you should be focusing on strengthening your faith. 

Fasting is for those who are abled. 

If you are sick such as having the flu, have a health condition such a diabetes, old age, mental illness, being forced to do it against your will -‘compulsion’, experiencing intense hunger and/or thirst, you are travelling or you would face prosecution or experience fear due to fasting you may be exempt. People don’t fast while they are on their period (well, for good reason since that be incredibly uncomfortable), pregnant/breastfeeding (up to their discretion) and children are not required to fast (Some children do want try it out. I remember as a child I would get in the habit of fasting until midday as practice. Obviously it was not forced on me and I wanted to do it. Of course, parents need to be very watchful of their kids.)  

You can either make up the fasting days or if you have a long-term condition donate to charity. 

It is a festive time. We like to go out for special dinners, prepare special food and do more community activities. But most importantly the month is centred around helping the less fortunate. This is the time of year where we pay our yearly zakkat to the poor. A required amount of donations from your total earnings to someone in need. 

Fasting is suppose to teach patience, steadfastness and remind you of those who go hungry and thirsty. It is about controlling your desires. We do it the whole month- 29 or 30 days depending on the moon. 

Fasting shouldn’t be a distressing experience. For most people, fasting is relatively easy or just mildly uncomfortable. Most people report to feeling better during ramadan as it is good for the digestive system and lots of people actually gain weight surprisingly enough because they tend to have feasts at dinner. We eat two meals know as Suhoor in the morning and Iftaar at night. Water and dates are ‘sunnah’- Optional but a good habit- to have at both times as that is what the Prophet Muhammad (SA) use to do. 

Islam teaches that you must have a good breakfast before sunrise and that you break your fast as soon as it is sunset- it is forbidden to delay breaking your fast. It is not required to starve yourself at all. Healthy, abled people fast without any difficulties. It shouldn’t be at the cost of your health.

You are to prioritise your health and well-being. 

I live in Australia and nothing changes for me. I am not bothered by it because for me my life goes on as normal as fasting is not a difficulty. I went to a religious school for Primary School and High School so we had shorter days during ramadan. 

I am not aware of how it is practiced in Muslim countries. 

Thanks for your ask. Have a great day anon! 

I just can’t stop thinking about Beauty Guru Cosette because it’s the absolute purest thing:

  • Cosette reclaims pastel pink as a fierce colour and makes it her brand, showing the world that softness isn’t a weakness but an act of bravery when the rest of the world tries to bring you down
  • She has this whole segment in which she reads hate comments and literally kills them with kindness, saying she’s sorry about their internalised anger and that she wishes them well, because a happy person wouldn’t leave comments like these
  • She promotes mental health and well-being, all with a cheerful and positive attitude, helping many people in the process
  • During the whole “Men can’t wear makeup” controversy, Cosette invited Courfeyrac and Montparnasse to do a video with her, and launched a #makeupisgenderneutral hashtag on twitter, which trended HARD.
  • Speaking of collabs, she often works with Musichetta and Bahorel on little fashion reviews and body positivity videos
  • Jehan records the little ukulele music that plays in the videos
  • She did a “My dad does my makeup” challenge, thinking it’d be hilarious since Valjean has seemingly no clue how makeup works. But Valjean did absolutely brilliantly? Cosette was totally blown away, but Valjean just shrugged it off: “Of course I know how to do it; I watch your videos. I keep in touch with what my daughter does and love, and I couldn’t be prouder.”
  • Cosette teared up on camera, ruining Valjean’s hard work, and hugged her dad so hard she couldn’t breathe. It remains, to this day, the most viewed video on her channel

“We live in a world where billions are spent on physical health and appearance. But yet, mental health and well-being, which are the most important factors that keep all of us moving forward and something that should be given the same level of care and attention as physical health, get ignored and pushed to the side time to time again. I know we would love to look in the mirror and love to see what we see. Sometimes I struggle on a daily basis to see that, but I know that when I look inside my mind, I know that I am happy with where I am at and that’s the most important thing. We need to remember that is so much more important to take care of our mind and our mental health rather than our physical health.”  —  Demi Lovato accepting the Artistic Award of Courage onstage during UCLA Semel Institute’s ‘Open Mind Gala’.
