YoTrip Presents: June is Men’s Health Awareness Month


Men's Health Week

June is Men’s Health Awareness Month

   Silent Health Crisis
“ T here is a silent health crisis in America…it’s a fact that, on average,
American men live sicker and die younger than American women.”
Dr. David Gremillion, Men’s Health Network

This statement is a sad indictment to the disparage of health among American men. The silence in the crisis that Dr. Gremillion acknowledges speaks volumes on the state of men’s health in this country. Who among the masses does not know a man who is not honoring his temple by taking care of his health? How many also know a man who has had a health scare, he refuses to get a check-up, and walks around like he thinks he is the “man of steel”?

Let’s view some facts about men’s health:

  • Percent of men 18 years and over in fair or poor health: 12.5%
  • Percent of men 18 years and over who met the 2008 federal physical activity guidelines for aerobic activity through leisure-time aerobic activity: 52.3%
  • Percent of men 18 years and over who had 5 or more drinks in 1 day at least once in the past year: 31.2%
  • Percent of men 18 years and over who currently smoke cigarettes: 22.2% (2009-2011)
  • Percent 20 years and over who are obese: 33.9% (2007-2010)
  • Percent 20 years and over with hypertension: 31.7% (2007-2010)
  • Percent of males under 65 years without health insurance coverage: 18.9%
  • Leading causes of death
    • Heart disease
    • Cancer
    • Accidents (unintentional injuries)

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/mens_health.htm

These numbers support the statement of Dr. Gremillion, men are in trouble! What is even sadder is that these numbers are reflective of all men, when we look at African-Americans and Hispanics those numbers are alarmingly high.

As we focus on Men’s Health during June, the numbers are a wake up call and a call to action. It it is time for men to realize, recognize, and respond by declaring “my health is my wealth and I will be well”!

YoTrip Presents: Dr. Loretta Faith Harris “A Woman People Should Know”


YoTrip Presents: Dr. Loretta Faith Harris ” A Woman People Should Know”

LFHred hand fold

Below is my sixth feature blog post in honor of Women’s History Month.  It is important that we celebrate the beauty and brains of women. Please enjoy learning about these fascinating women and then make sure you support them in their passions, projects, and products

Who are you? My name is Dr. Loretta Faith Harris, but I live by Faith. I am the second of five children to the parents of Meshach and Delrene Harris. My humble beginnings are in Pahokee “Muck city” Florida where I take pride and joy. There is a lot in a name and I believe that God divinely ordained my name. Faith foreshadowed my life’s encounters and experiences, which required COMPLETE and TOTAL Faith in God.

What makes you a “Woman People Should Know”? I believe that my genuine, transparent, and honest approach to share my life experiences make me a woman people should know. Life is everything but a fairy tale! When you have survived tragedy, adversity, and even experienced death, you adopt a new perspective towards life encounters. My experiences of overcoming death-defying odds and making it to my eventual triumph are chronicled in my award-winning memoir, “The Journey Less Traveled: Choose to Turn Your Tragedy into Triumph.” So, I say to anyone reading this blog, “Take the time” to get to know the true woman.

When I rise in the morning before my feet hit the ground I whisper, “Good morning Holy Spirit” because my Father and I are one. There is a reason I face my fears and skydive, rock climb, and run tracks. My shortcomings remind me every single day that my doctorate is just a title and had it not been for the GRACE of God, I would not be here! I am confident in who I am in Christ, yet humbled in spirit. Yes, I am a woman you should get to know.

When did you find out that you had that something special that you wanted to share with the world? I remember this day as if it were yesterday. I was a preteen, attending a church service and my mother took one look at me and said, “You are going to do something great with children.” I was holding a baby at that time. I did not think that I would end up becoming an educator, but I always knew that I shared a special connection with children. I always loved the Lord and would spend lots of time in my room as a child reading, dissecting, and writing down information from the bible. I understood everything clearly, as I read and when things were not that clear, I would pray and ask God to help me understand His word. When, “I” knew for myself that I had something special was when I experienced the LOVE of the Lord!

Where can people find out more about you? People call me the, Social Media Queen” because I can be found across the internet. Here are a few outlets that will give you a good overview of who I am and what I do:

How do you make it all happen? I can do ALL things though Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13). Amen. I appreciate this HONOR.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for 3/14/13- An Inventor Beyond Her Time Bessie Blount (Vol.3,Iss.1)


“A black woman can invent something for the benefit of humankind” – Bessie Blount  

Bessie Blount, was a physical therapist who worked with soldiers injured in W.W.II. Bessie Blount’s war service inspired her to patent a device, in 1951, that allowed amputees to feed themselves.

The electrical device allowed a tube to deliver one mouthful of food at a time to a patient in a wheelchair or in a bed whenever he or she bit down on the tube. She later invented a portable receptacle support that was a simpler and smaller version of the same, designed to be worn around a patient’s neck. http://inventors.about.com/od/bstartinventors/a/Bessie_Blount.htm

Bessie Blunt could not get all of her inventions patented with ease yet she was not deterred, but lived and worked with determination. The French government saw the need and usefulness of her inventions and shared them with the world.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for December 13, 2012-A Season of Memories (Vol.12, Iss.1)

A Season of Memories

Ruth Anderson, my beloved grandmother left this world for her heavenly home when I was still a young one (just eight years old). My brief time with my grandma was filled with experiences that left lasting impressions on my life. During the fall/winter months, grandma would love to take her beloved grandchildren along for one of her favorite past-times: picking pecans.

In Augusta, Georgia as the leaves found their way off the trees, the grounds would become littered with the dusty brown colored shells with black lines holding the treasured nuts known as pecans. I can still hear the rusting sound as the marriage of the leaves, pecan shells, and shoes all coming together as we walked through the orchards that seemed larger than life. Armed with our brown bags, neatly folder under our arms, we opened the bag and watched grandma for instructions on how which pecans were ready to be picked. 

My grandma was expert in finding pecans at their prime and she would feel her brown bag quickly. The pecans we picked would soon turn into the main ingredients in Pecan pies or toasted and rolled with sugar and spice for a wonderful holiday treat. 

Do you have any childhood memories of this season? Please feel free to share. It makes my heart smile to think of days and times gone by, how about you?

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for 11/29/12-Celebrating The Caregivers (Vol.11, Iss.4)

Celebrating National Family Caregivers Month

In 1994, the National Family Caregivers Association began promoting the celebration of family caregivers during the week of Thanksgiving. President Clinton signed the first presidential proclamation in 1997 and every president since – Democrat and Republican alike – has issued an annual proclamation appreciating family caregivers. As interest grew in family caregiving issues, National Family Caregivers Week became National Family Caregivers Month.

Day in and day out, more than 65 million family caregivers in this country fulfill a vital role on the care team. No one else is in a better position to ensure continuity of care. Family caregivers are the most familiar with their care recipients’ medicine regimen; they are the most knowledgeable about the treatment regimen; and they understand best the dietary and exercise regimen.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for November 22, 2012-A Word Of Thanksgiving (Vol.11, Iss.3)


Happy Thanksgiving

A WORD OF THANKSGIVING

 

Today is the National Day of Thanksgiving here in the United States. All over the country people cooked, cleaned and connected over meals that covered tables and filled empty stomachs. Gathering of family, friends and folks took place  all in the name of Thanksgiving.

I like so many was blessed to be able to travel and join my family for all the fun, food, and fellowship associated with Thanksgiving. I visited with two different family members homes and it was great just to all be together. The food was incredible: Cornish Hens, turkey, ham, dressing, turnip greens, mac n’ cheese, fried and barbaque chicken, chitterlings, string beans, mixed peas, potato salad, corn pudding, apple cobbler, carrot cake, sweet potato pie,  and red velvet cake.

We laugh and love so much, it was a joy. We watched Football games, Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (a classic) and then 25th Anniversary for Micheal Jackson‘s BAD. What a great day for offering a word of Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful and grateful for, I just cannot tell it all. 

I would also like to take this time to offer a word of Thanksgiving for all of the people who have supported YoTrip-Words and Thoughts/Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip/Thursday Thinking by YoTrip as I seek to leave my footprints on the world.

Let us all continue in the spirit of Thanksgiving for this day and beyond!

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for November 20, 2012-National Adoption Month (Vol.11, Iss.3)


Length of stay in U.S. foster care

November is National Adoption Month and it is such a selfless act to open your heart, your home, and your head to another person. The love, support, joy and completeness that families give to children by bringing them into their families is a beautiful thing. I salute the countless numbers of people who adopted and understand the power making the difference in the life of others. 

 

History of National Adoption Month

 

National Adoption Month has been celebrated for 17 years. Explore the history of National Adoption Month in this section.

 

Early days

 

 

Efforts to use the Internet—and social media—in adoption recruitment and retention continue today.

 

Celebrating National Adoption Month

 

Every November, a Presidential Proclamation launches activities and celebrations to help build awareness of adoption throughout the nation. Thousands of community organizations arrange and host programs, events, and activities to share positive adoption stories, challenge the myths, and draw attention to the thousands of children in foster care who are waiting for permanent families. http://www.childwelfare.gov/adoption/nam/about/history.cfm

 

Keep the people impacted by Hurricane Sandy in your thoughts and prayers.

Check Your Breast…It Is Not  An Option

 

God did not think it robbery to lend those breast to you

 

Getting them checked annually is not hard to do

 

Since 1913 or so have medical actions been taken on behalf of breast

 

You must do your part to allow the doctor’s to run the test

 

The bump, the lump the discomfort or no symptoms at all

 

It is vital to get a mammogram act now do not stall

 

You can not take time for granted, it can be removed in a blink of an eye

 

Your health is your wealth, honor it or it will simply go bye-bye

 

So many have battled and fought at the hands of breast cancer

 

Awareness through education, empowerment, and encouragement are truly the answer

 

Do your part for you and others by getting your annual test and screening today

 

Make your breast health a priority, there is no other way!

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for September 27, 2012-The 100 Day SMART GOAL CHALLENGE (Vol,9. Iss.4)


The 100 Day SMART GOAL CHALLENGE   "The 100 Day SMART Goal Challenge"

 

Last week I made a stop in your track discovery. As I finished up my daily devotion from my YouVersion app on my phone, I was congratulated for completing my 265th day of study. It hit me…We had 100 days left in the year before we embarked on 2013.

Later that morning I had a conversation with a person who was turning 40 soon and was concerned that she did not know what she wanted to be when she grew up. I told her she was going to have to “represent” to join the 4.0 club! I then went into analyze mode and began to question her about what she like, loved and would do if she could and not worry about failing. The rapid line of questioning stunned her and then she became silent. Then offered that she needed help with establishing a goal. I said okay and then  she left my office . I went to Google and added Goal setting to the search box. I pulled up some information  and went looking for her in her work area. I left the papers in her chair and returned to my office.

Later that evening while out with friends, it came to me. I needed to do something significant in the 100 days to come. I then shared this with Dr. Loretta Faith Harris. I am going to establish an event to help others achieve their goal within the next 100 days. She smiled and I was ready to get home and let my fingers catch up with my mind.

I went to social media (my Facebook page) and created an event page. I decided to call the event, THE 100 DAY SMART GOAL CHALLENGE. I always thought of what I had learned in Goal Setting workshops and lessons. When you determined a GOAL you needed to make it SMART. The SMART acronym is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely. This event would gather people who all want to accomplish something by January 1, 2013.  I was hyped and hoped I could get my Facebook  friends to come aboard and join the movement.  See the information below. Come on aboard and join us! #100Day #SMARTGOAL

The 100 Day SMART Goal Challenge is an opportunity for you to establish a task (large or small) and take the steps necessary to complete it by January 1, 2013. The “100 Day SMART Goal Challenge” event is a collective place where those who join can come together collectively as Accountability Partners to encourage and empower their selves and others. http://www.facebook.com/events/444796945573132/
