It is with deep joy that I saw myself in the personality of La’aleh Al-Aali through her inspiring story published in the April issue of WTM. I was married when I found myself still hungry for improvement and self-fulfilment.
Due to difficulty of bearing a child at the time, I stopped studying. I lost my scholarship afterwards. Some people told me that balancing married life while pursuing education is difficult and that I no longer can finish my studies. I proved them wrong.
I was able to complete and earn my bachelor’s degree in accountancy by continuing my studies right after I gave birth to my first baby. You might be surprised to know that my grades were far better than they used to be, despite the lack of sleep every night. It also turned out that because of my high grades, I qualified for another scholarship provided by the university. My little angel became my inspiration!
Obstacles in life do exist; we just have to view it in a positive way. Life isn’t always about falling. It’s all about a rise after our feet have stumbled. Maricar, by fax.
Your article Slim Down and Live Healthy was very inspiring. Obesity is an excess proportion of total body fat. A person is considered to be obese when his or her weight is 20 per cent more than normal weight. A person may be overweight from extra muscle, bone, or water, as well as from having too much fat.
Here are the main causes:
Diet: The widespread availability of nutritional guidelines has done little to address the problems of overeating and poor dietary choice.
Sedentary lifestyle: A sedentary lifestyle plays a significant role in obesity.
Genetics: Like many other medical conditions, obesity is the result of interplay between genetic and environmental factors.
Other illnesses: Certain physical and mental illnesses and the pharmaceutical substances used to treat them can increase risk of obesity.
Social determinants: Among developed countries, levels of adult obesity and the percentage of teenage children who are overweight are correlated with income inequality. ” Euna, by email.
What’s best for the kids
Hi! Your magazine this month was truly a treat! It was filled with a lot of very nice information on fashion and trends, colours and clothes. I also did enjoy the article Just Playing and hope that more parents in Bahrain can spend more quality time with their kids, and spend more money on award-winning toys than on nannies and play schools.
Over the years, I have invested in enough quality toys to outdo most preschools and playschools! And, I’ve never sent my kids to preschool before they were three years old. Alifiya, by email.
