The Health Belief Model (HBM) will be used as a base to design nutrition education program for older adults to increase their knowledge and consumption of fluid. The Health Belief Model was developed in the 1950s. It is one of the first and well known theories that used to understand health behavior. The main idea of the HBM is people’s beliefs affect their behaviors (Contento, 2016). It is recommended to use the HBM in nutrition education because it increases the effectiveness of educational programs (Naghashpour et al., 2014). Therefore, providing older adults with information about hydration may help improve their fluid intake. To achieve that, it is suggested to increase their awareness and motivation about hydration, and decrease their
All of us like staying healthy and fit but it can be disturbing when pain checks in, more especially hip pain; this inevitably calls for attention in so many ways.
Having high blood pressure damages your heart, arteries and blood vessels. Scuppernongs are a good source of potassium. Potassium widens the arteries and helps the walls of the blood vessels to relax. This ensures smooth blood flow throughout the body. It further balances out the undesirable effects of excess sodium and supports good kidney function.
However, hip injuries are common with all age groups. A well known hip injury is groin strains/pulls. The cause of a groin pull is from over exerting the muscles in your hip or applying too much force. The best exercises to do in rehab for a groin pull would be eccentric exercises. These are exercises that lengthen the muscle in response to an external resistance ( Farlex). Another exercise would be a long adductor stretch to loosen up the inner thigh area. Physical therapist assistants use a variety of techniques including stretches to help patients recover fast. Other hip injuries like snapping hip where a patient would “ feel a snapping sensation or hear a popping sound in [the] hip when [they] walk” (AAOS). The solution to this injury would be to do side-lying leg lift to strengthen the hip. Also, hamstring stretches on a wall would loosen the hip up allowing it to be more flexible. Most stretches can be done at home without any equipment, so it is very convenient to the patient and gets them a step closer to recovering as soon as
Lani: I was helping for someone’s project for COMM 245; I was in the video lab, in the studio. I was on campus and decided to contact everyone I knew who comes to the school. I remember I sent out a snap saying guys I think there is a shooting, be careful and then I started sending out individual texts to people making sure they were okay, like hey are you good? Stay out of an area. I didn’t know how many people were getting shot. I just knew it’s not good and that we have to be careful. At first, the campus was like we are unsure, just be careful, and then it took some time till I finally got an email that said stay on campus and were held there for about two hours, I just kept recording.
Do stretching exercises as directed for your legs and especially the large muscles in the front of the thigh (quadriceps) as directed.
Friendship is an amazing thing. Having a bond that can be so close is important yet sometimes these bonds break in a second. My experience with friendship is a rocky boat, my best friend and I lost our relationship over a plastic wonder, a Fidget Spinner….. My Fidget Spinner.
Problem: When people get injured it takes a while to recover. It is common for people to strain their muscles by overworking them. This can happen from playing sports.
It was a cold November morning in the valley of Cowan, when I fired my first shot. It was a smooth and clean feeling after I pulled the trigger. I than saw the deer hunker as the slug hit its side, and it began to run away from us. Dad, knowing I had made a good shot, still decided to jump out of the blind window to end the animals suffering. Unfortunately, when his foot caught, it was all over from then. Once, I was inside the blind and the next I was in the cold crisp air. I then saw Dad on the ground cursing himself for jumping through the window.

Overworked. That’s the closest word that I could use to describe this week. I feel like this journal is going to be about me just bickering, yet there is some stuff you might want to read about. First of all, I have been sleeping three hours this week because of upcoming midterms, quizzes, and assignments due. I am sleep deprived and mentally drained and as my second year in college I have never had my life drained out of my body like a passing shadow. Yes, I know it comes in the college package, but come on – I feel like a zombie. Nonetheless, this week has been overwhelming, but at the end of the day it will be worth it. Alright, I am most definitely sure you’re wondering when I am going to start talking about what I learned this week so
I was surprised to find out the amount of technology that I use with a given 24 hour period because I could not believe I was being exposed to technology 80% of my a day. Little did I know that my phone is 65% of that 80%. I rely on my smartphone because it helps me with everything I need to do and it saves me time the bad part of it is that I become more and more lazy because I went from using a pencil and paper for taking notes to using my cell phone to take notes. I rely on my cell phone because the notes I took could come in handy when I am on the subway because I can review the notes and study them on the bus ride home rather than pull out my book and study while everybody is staring. I would consider giving up my cell phone
