..Autism..

Autism, also called autism spectrum disorder(ASD), is a complicated condition that includes problems with communication and behavior. It can involve a wide range of symptoms and skills. ASD can be a minor problem or a disability that needs full-time care in a special facility.People with autism have trouble with communication. They have trouble understanding what other people think and feel. This makes it hard for them to express themselves, either with words or through gestures, facial expressions, and touch.

People with autism might have problems with learning. Their skills might develop unevenly. For example, they could have trouble communicating but be unusually good at art, music, math, or memory. Because of this, they might do especially well on tests of analysis or problem-solving. More children are diagnosed with autism now than ever before. But the latest numbers could be higher because of changes in how it’s diagnosed, not because more children have a disorder

Autism Signs and Symptoms

Symptoms of autism usuall appear before a child turns 3. Some people show signs from birth.

Common symptoms of autism include:

  • A lack of eye contact
  • A narrow range of interests or intense interest in certain topics
  • Doing something over and over, like repeating words or phrases, rocking back and forth, or flipping a lever
  • High sensitivity to sounds, touches, smells, or sights that seem ordinary to other people
  • Not looking at or listening to other people
  • Not looking at things when another person points at them
  • Not wanting to be held or cuddled
  • Problems understanding or using speech, gestures, facial expressions, or tone of voice
  • Talking in a sing-song, flat, or robotic voice
  • Trouble adapting to changes in routine

Some children with autism may also have seizures. These might not start until adolescence

Autism Treatment

There’s no cure for autism. But early treatment can make a big difference in development for a child with autism. If you think your child shows symptoms of ASD, tell your doctor as soon as possible.

What works for one person might not work for another. Your doctor should tailor treatment for you or your child. The two main types of treatments are:

  • Behavioral and communication therapy to help with structure and organization. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is one of these treatments; it promotes positive behavior and discourages negative behavior. Occupational therapy can help with life skills like dressing, eating, and relating to people. Sensory integration therapy might help someone who has problems with being touched or with sights or sounds. Speech therapy improves communication skills.
  • Medications to help with symptoms of ASD, like attention problems, hyperactivity, or anxiety.

Origin and history of the Easter Bunny

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Easter? As a Christian, the first image might be the cross or the empty tomb. For the general public, a blitz of media images and merchandise on store shelves makes it more likely that the Easter Bunny comes to mind. So how did a rabbit distributing eggs become a part of Easter?There are several reasons for the rabbit, or hare, to be associated with Easter, all of which come through pagan celebrations or beliefs. The most obvious is the hare’s fertility.  Easter comes during spring and celebrates new life. The Christian meaning of new life through Christ and a general emphasis on new life are different, but the two gradually merged. Any animals – like the hare – that produced many offspring were easy to include

The hare is also an ancient symbol for the moon. The date of Easter depends on the moon. This may have helped the hare to be absorbed into Easter celebrations.

The hare or rabbit’s burrow helped the animal’s adoption as part of Easter celebrations. Believers saw the rabbit coming out of its underground home as a symbol for Jesus coming out of the tomb.  Perhaps this was another case of taking a pre-existing symbol and giving it a Christian meaning.

Easter hare came to America with German immigrants, and the hare’s role passed to the common American rabbit.  Originally children made nests for the rabbit in hats, bonnets, or fancy paper boxes, rather than the baskets of today. Once the children finished their nests, they put them in a secluded spot to keep from frightening the shy rabbit. The appealing nests full of colored eggs probably helped the customs to spread.Back in Southern Germany, the first pastry and candy Easter bunnies became popular at the beginning of the nineteenth century. This custom also crossed the Atlantic, and children still eat candy rabbits – particularly chocolate ones – at Easter.

Origin and history of Easter Eggs

Next to the Easter bunny, the most familiar symbol is the Easter egg.  Like others, the egg has a long pre-Christian history.  Again there’s no certainty as to why it became associated with Easter.

Early Christians looked at the connection eggs had to life and decided eggs could be a part of their celebration of Christ’s resurrection. In addition, in some areas, eggs were forbidden during Lent; therefore, they were a delicacy at Easter. Since many of the earlier customs were Eastern in origin, some speculate that early missionaries or knights of the Crusade may have been responsible for bringing the tradition to the West.

In the fourth century, people presented eggs in church to be blessed and sprinkled with holy water. By the twelfth century, the Benedictio 

Ovorumhad been introduced authorizing the special use of eggs on the holy days of Easter.  The timing of this blessing would uphold the idea that Crusaders may have brought the tradition back. Even though eggs had been used previously, the Crusaders may have made the custom more popular and widespread.

In 1290, Edward I of England recorded a purchase of 450 eggs to be colored or covered with gold leaf. He then gave the eggs to members of the royal household.

Once the custom became accepted, new traditions began to grow up around it. Eggs were dyed red for joy and in memory of Christ’s blood.  Egg rolling contests came to America from England, possibly as a reminder of the stone being rolled away. 

What about the familiar Easter Egg hunt? One source suggested that it grew out of the tradition of German children searching for hidden pretzels during the Easter season. Since children were hiding nests for the Easter Bunny to fill with eggs at the same time they were hunting pretzels, it was only a small leap to begin hiding eggs instead.

Mood Management..

Mood is a mild, usually transient, feeling tone such as euphoria or irritability. Mood affects, facilitates both positively and negatively and it can also affect performance and that is why we have mood swings.

Mood swings are periodic alternation between feelings of well being and dejection. If occasionally these changes are normal but if they are more sever they may be a neurotic reaction and they are intense and persistent they may be symptomatic of manic-depressive disorder.

Mood combines with behavior and attitude to make a personality. Behaviour is an individuals psychological actions, reactions, and interactions to external or internal stimuli. When one moods swings the persons personality also changes that’s why it’s adviced to learn how to control our moods.

FEAR

Fear has been know to be one of the strongest and oldest emotion. It is the most basic human emotion, it has been programmed in to the nervous system and works like an instinct from time we are infants to our old age until our death. We are equipped with the survival instinct necessary to respond with fear,when we sense danger or feel unsafe.

Fear is a natural, powerful qnd primitive human emotion which involves a universal biochemical response as well as a high individual emotional response. Fear alerts us to the presence of danger or threat of harm, as weather the danger is physical or psychological. Fear help protect us, makes us alert and prepare us to deal with it. Feeling afraid is very natural and helpful in some situations and bad in some.

“we must confront our fear, we must come face to face with them, how we determine where we go with the rest if our lives, to experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it”

JUDY BLUME

Some may call fear the greatest enemy of man because being to afraid of something can affect the mental state of a person which leads to emotional instability, breakdown, hiding, shock and freezing. Like all emotions fear can be mild, medium or intense depending on the situation and the person. A feeling of fear can be brief or it can last long.

” Being afraid isn’t a problem but the problem is staying afraid”

The choice is all yours.

Music is a pure magic which is a wonderful gift to humanity, being one of the most universal way of expression in human life. Music is present in the daily lives of all ages and from different cultures around the world.  There are various types of music which we can enjoy according to our need and mood.

It affects our mood in all kinds of infinite way. Listening to slow sound  music gives us relief and peace and makes us health mentally and spiritually. So I advise everyone to listen to music.
