HERBS FOR HEALTH MANAGEMENT

Herbs are a foundational root in medicine and health treatments, dating back thousands of years throughout every culture around the world. Modern Western herbalism comes from ancient Egypt. The Greeks developed a comprehensive philosophy of herbal medicine by 100 BCE and the Romans built upon it to create a variety of medical practices, some of which are still used today.

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE IMPACTS PSYCHOLOGICAL HARDINESS

Psychological hardiness is an individual’s resistance to stress, anxiety and depression. It includes the ability to withstand grief and accept the loss of loved ones.

Create an end-of-game ritual. Have both teams applaud for the winning team. Teams can also get in the habit of applauding good plays by players from both teams. Ending a game kindly makes a difference. It is a good policy to have both teams shake hands when a game finishes regardless of who wins or loses. Everyone should be equally encouraged to do their best. If someone is injured, everyone should show care and concern whether they are on the same team or they are rivals.


You can serve as a role model whether you’re playing a game with your child or watching them participate in a sport. If you lose, don’t make up excuses and if you win, don’t brag. If your child messes up, continue to encourage them and refrain from criticizing or finding fault. Do not tolerate cheating.


Teaching good sportsmanship is another way to instill life skills in your child. Emphasize the way you treat others on the field is in line with the way you treat others off the field in real-life situations. Concepts like respecting others and having self-control can be carried into other aspects of life and will help your child become a successful and thriving adult.

TEACHING GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP STARTS AT HOME

Last year, when Kansas State beat the University of Kentucky Wildcats in the NCAA regionals, the UK team skipped the post- game handshake. Kansas State’s coach and others pointed out that this showed poor sportsmanship and a lack of respect. Teaching good sportsmanship should start at home. Teachers, coaches and community leaders should also provide examples of good sportsmanship for children. The Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) requires officials to enforce sportsmanship rules for high school athletics to emphasize positive values and create a sense of teamwork and responsibility in players and fans alike. Players should be expected to behave well and treat one another respectfully. They should know there will be consequences if they do not. The golden rule often is lost as participants can easily get caught up in the competition and get carried away with the thought of winning.


The Nemours Foundation says you can teach your child to be a good sport by having a positive attitude, encouraging him to give his best effort, supporting teammates and saying things such as “good shot” or “nice try. ” Teach your child to accept officials’ calls and refrain from arguing with them. Tell them to treat the other team with respect, without teasing or bullying. They should also follow the rules of the game, help other players who may have fallen and take pride in winning without rubbing it in. They should accept a loss without whining or making excuses.
