Neglected Health!

I wanted to get on here and share how I think we are neglecting our health by not sleeping long enough and eating nutrition rich meals. Prevention is by far the best medicine as opposed to having to see doctors and regular check-ups. Again, I can’t urge it enough about the important of taking good care of our bodies.

I get to wake up to my picturesque breakfast nook windows looking out into nature and watching the sunrise rise just about every morning. It’s things like that I believe we are taking for granted! Without our health, we may be able to even get out of bed and sip on our favorite morning beverage looking out into a brand new day that awaits. I think you get the point by now?!

It will always be fun and exciting to stay up late or to combine your party with loaded carbs like pizza or what not. But you will always pay the price for those decisions as well. Do not fool yourself into thinking that you know a better way in life around this simple principle of eating healthy and rest for your body. It also goes without saying it is equally in your best interest to drink plenty of fluids. Not soda, but water and occasional natural fruit juices.

On that note, you could benefit from eating only vegetables and fruits and nuts and very minimal meat. It has been advised to not eat more than the size of the palm of your hand for the entire day. Just try enforcing that rule of thumb at the next football tail gate party. I dare you. It’s that kind of stubborn mentality that is going to keep you physically ill and not able to be at your physical best peak in life. This is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself.

Investing in your physical health is paramount as you only have one body and one life here on earth. I suppose depending on your spiritual or religious beliefs it is debatable if you only get to live on earth once. That is by far another day and topic which I do not know if I will ever return to as that is straying too far off from to topics of health and the here and now. Statistically speaking, your chances of a longer, happier and healthier life are immensely greater if you follow this simple rule. If you need further assistance or have any questions, please ask away or leave a comment.



Shiny Glass Chandelier!

I was curious if any of you out there have experienced or believe that the music industry has a glass ceiling or not regarding woman and pay. For those of you that are not very familiar with what a glass ceiling is, I will explain in lamens terms. A glass ceiling is a visual expression to help you “see” how the men in the workforce are on a higher level standing on the floor which is made out of glass looking down at the women who are not allowed upstairs in to the same room and are also being paid a less wage for doing the same amount of work or even the exact same type of work. It has been researched that women can earn as much as five dollars per hour less than a man although it could be preforming the exact same job.

Now having a better understanding of what a glass ceiling is, the question still remains. Do you think there is still a glass ceiling issue within the music field of DJ, radio, etc.? Do you feel there is an obvious difference in hourly or salary pay between men and women. If the answer is yes, why do you believe this to be so. Conversely, if the answer is no, why do you believe that to be the case. Have you personally experienced this or seen this in your life?  What do you think can be done to ensure the equality of women can be implemented?

On a different note, I am wondering if certain company benefits are equally allowed to females? Take for instance drug and alcohol rehab help. Most companies have a rainy day fund set aside for such occurrences. Some even have a well organized (EAP) employee assistance program. So the question remains, do employers provide the sam opportunities (substance abuse treatment) to women as they do men. Or do they expect the women to heal through attending a local 12 step program or even more severe, do they fire them altogether?
