What To Do If Your Main Squeeze Puts Work Before Your Relationship

What To Do If Your Main Squeeze Puts Work Before Your Relationship

It is not about infidelity, but it is lonely when the one you love most puts work before your relationship. If you are considering what to do if your main squeeze is putting work before your relationship, take a deep breath. In this article, you will be presented with suggestive steps that you can take.

Your main squeeze could have failed to appear at family gatherings too many times because of work. At other times, she may have promised to spend more time with you and not delivered because work comes first.

But has he said, “I’ll quit tomorrow,” but tomorrow never comes? Or has she stood you up or kept you waiting because of work? If you answered yes to these questions, your partner may be suffering from work addiction.

What To Do If Your Main Squeeze Is Wedded To Work

Kate’s work obsession became like a weekend lover.

She lied to her family so she could rendezvous with work at the office: “I’d tell my family I was going shopping on a Saturday and I’d end up in my office working. Or I’d tell them I was going to my girlfriend’s house. After calling my girlfriend’s and not finding me, they’d call the office and say, ‘I thought you were going to Dottie’s.’ I felt like I’d been caught with my hand in the cookie jar.”

If you’re the mate of a workaholic, like Jena, you probably feel alone as a partner and parent, as if you’ve been left with the responsibility of holding the family together.

You feel unimportant and minimized, even innately defective, because you get so little attention from your partner. You might even harbor feelings of anger, resentment, sadness, and guilt.

Or you may live under a distinct set of unwritten and unspoken rules. Rules dictated by your mate’s work habits: Handle everything at home. Don’t expect anything from me, because I have enough on my plate at work. Put me at the center of your life and plan the household and family and social life around my work schedule. I’m depending on you to do your best, be perfect, and not let me down.

Chinese 14th National Healthy Lifestyle Day—Sept. 1

CHINESE 14TH NATIONAL HEALTHY LIFESTYLE DAY

When it comes to the ‘how to’ of healthy living, it can be ‘made’ from anywhere. Healthy living is not limited by franchise, or copyright unless it is for a particular lifestyle/healthy living product. You do not require any hacking or spying expertise to be involved. Set the day aside, join the Chinese 14th national healthy lifestyle day celebration, on September 1st, 2020 and live healthy.

The Chinese government is encouraging its residents to stop unhealthy habits and become practitioners and beneficiaries of healthy lifestyles. The government started the China Healthy Lifestyle for All (CHLA) initiative in 2007. It is celebrated annually on September 1st, and named the National Healthy Lifestyle Day.

The theme for this year is, “Increase Health Promotion, Decrease Oil Consumption”.

The world is still trying to recover from the burden of COVID-19 pandemic. The risk of communicable disease will not be a strange concept to anyone. We are encouraged to wear our face mask and maintain social distance, especially when in public spaces.

The person that is obese from wrong diet, and the employee that is using bad ergonomic systems, working from home may need a little more convincing. While individual views matter, we all need to agree that the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) is real and hard. And it continues to be a major public health challenge globally and in China.

Chinese 14th National Healthy Lifestyle Day – Local Solution For a Global Problem

Globally, physical inactivity was responsible for 9% of premature mortality. Insufficient fruits and vegetables consumption for 11.3%, and harmful alcohol consumption for another 5.3%.

Scientific evidence supports the notion that changing dietary habits and getting involved in physical activities are good habits to be nurtured. Both can positively influence several of these risk factors at the population level.

Since the initiation of CHLA in 2007, the atmosphere of “Health for all, participation for all” has been gradually formed. By the end of 2018, 2,627 counties/districts in China have carried out the action. This accounted for 88.78% of all counties/districts.

The content of CHLA was further expanded in 2016 to include promotions on the use of less salt, less oil, less sugar, oral health, healthy weight, and healthy bones.

The drive is for the Chinese nation people’s health to improve in the next decade. To achieve this, there will be continuous focus on the construction of a healthy environment, dissemination of health knowledge, and promotion of a healthy lifestyle.

Missing School Is Greater Risk To Kids Than Covid, Health Advisers

MISSING SCHOOL IS GREATER RISK TO KIDS THAN COVID, HEALTH ADVISERS

LONDON (Reuters) – The chief medical officers of the United Kingdom have said children should return to school after the summer holidays. They warn that missing out on their education, by missing school is greater risk, much bigger risks to them than catching COVID-19.

The rare joint statement came from the top health advisers to the governments of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It represents a boost for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The Prime Minister had said, getting children back to school is a national priority. He now calls on parents to send their children back to school next month.

If Missing School Is Greater Risk To Kids Than Covid. Balancing Governance (Public Safety, Economic Recovery etc) Is A Risk With People’s Confidence

Confidence in the government’s approach to schooling during the coronavirus pandemic took a hit last week. This was when education minister, Gavin Williamson was forced into an embarrassing U-turn over examination results.

“Very few, if any, children or teenagers will come to long term harm from COVID-19 due solely to attending school,” they said. “This has to be set against a certainty of long-term harm to many children and young people from not attending school,” the CMOs said in a joint statement published late on Saturday.

“Missing school is greater risk not only to kids, but also to their parents. When kids return back to school, it brings some sense of normality to working parents.”

Evidence showed that a lack of schooling increased inequalities, reduced opportunities and could exacerbate physical and mental health issues, the statement said.

By contrast there was clear evidence of a very low rate of severe disease in children, even if they caught COVID-19, and an exceptionally low risk of dying.

What Hospitalisation Statistics Indicate

“The percentage of symptomatic cases requiring hospitalisation is estimated to be 0.1% for children aged 0-9 and 0.3% among those aged 10-19; compared to a hospitalisation rate of over 4% in the UK for the general population,” the statement said.

Johnson has said reopening schools in September is a social, economic and moral imperative. Insisting, they would be able to operate safely despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vaccines To The Risk? Not So Fast

Separately, England’s Chief Medical Officer was quoted as saying, it would be foolish to count on a coronavirus vaccine being ready for use this year.

“I think if we look forward a year. I think the chances are much greater than if we look forward six months. We need to have that sort of timescale in mind,” Chris Whitty told Sky News.

Nigeria and West Africa ‘Exit’ Examinations Continues in Full Swing

In Nigeria, the National Examinations Council (NECO) examination for students in year 9, started today across the country. Across West Africa, the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) commenced on August 17. The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) had earlier released the timetable for the examination.

Missing school is greater risk not only to kids, but also to their parents. When kids return back to school, it brings some sense of normality to working parents. The pressures of staying safe in a pandemic, balancing worklife or searching for complementary home school support tech startups eases out. And so also, the risk on mental health and economic productivity.

Home School Tech Startups Supporting Endangered Working Parents
