Courage

Before you can increase your value you need to have courage. Sometimes this means having the courage to change. Benjamin Mee, the acclaimed author of the book turned movie, “We Bought a Zoo”, says that sometimes, you just need “20 seconds of insane courage” to take that first step…whether it be asking for something, taking a leap (actually or figuratively!), signing up for something, etc. Take initiative and don’t be afraid to try new things that may improve your skills, or help you make connections with others. It is the first step to increasing your self-value.

Self Value

This is at the heart of what makes you unique and is at the center of what you can offer others. Be of value to others by regarding your feelings and thoughts as a barometer. Allow positive thoughts to propel you to help others. Dispel negative thoughts and feelings that may have the opposite effect. Depending on your actions, you have the power to elevate or disappoint others. Choose to empower, choose to share, choose to use your value to make a difference for others!

The start of mechanical digestion

One remarkable ability of the human body is changing food into nutrients, allowing us to survive and thrive.

When we eat food, it ends up in our digestive system that is composed of several organs. The goal is to turn the food into nutrients.

  • Mechanical digestion starts in the mouth, where food is chewed into small pieces and mixed with saliva.
  • When this mass (the bolus) lands in the stomach, it is acidified and further pressed until it becomes a liquid paste called chyme.
