Spring Into Action

Spring Into Action Tagged with:

Since the spring season is in full swing, I feel so much better with my daily schedule and activities. I feel like I have been reborn to some degree because my activities throughout the week are all set in stone. I feel so driven because my activities, exercises, practices, and work are all set up on a calendar in which I am all prepared for each day. I basically have my fall season planned out for each day. This is great for me considering I just spent the summer free lancing it. I can then focus on just bringing a fun-filled attitude for when it’s time to exercise.

What is Dyslexia and its Symptoms in Adults and Children

What is Dyslexia and its Symptoms in Adults and Children Tagged with:

Dyslexia is a particular type of learning disorder, which affects the way an individual processes information. One of the most peculiar aspects of this disorder is that it manifests itself differently in each individual. This makes diagnosing Dyslexia a challenge, since there isn’t a specific test for it. Instead, in order to discern whether or not an individual may be suffering from dyslexia, you need to be watchful for a number of signs and symptoms. Depending on how frequently these occur, and how much they interfere with the individual’s life, you’ll need to schedule an appointment with a professional who specializes in learning disorders.

The Problem with “Inspirational Sport Stories”

The Problem with “Inspirational Sport Stories” Tagged with:

 

Recently I have been absolutely swamped with school, work, and basketball, which has left little time for writing extra things such as this post. That is especially true since I want what I write to be something worth reading and I really want a topic that either makes you think or, better yet, starts a discussion either in the comments below or on social media. I think I have just the ticket and it helps that I have a bunch to say about this issue and its impact on individuals with disabilities!

Staying Positive Through Your Journeys

Staying Positive Through Your Journeys Tagged with:

In previous blog posts, I’ve mentioned where I first developed my love for nutrition and people with disabilities. Typically when I blog, I write an educational piece about portion sizes, certain nutrients, and other nutrition tips; however, I think it is also neat learning about people’s journeys — the good and the bad parts along the way. Sometimes, it takes me a while to realize my own personal successes because I am the type of person who wants to praise someone else for their achievements and experiences first. Needless to say, looking back on my own journey so far has truly been a blessing to me and has landed me where I am today — working with the National Center on Health, Physical Activity, & Disability. I’ve been extremely fortunate with some incredible opportunities.

And the Grammy Goes To..

And the Grammy Goes To.. Tagged with:

I am sure we all were excited to see the Grammy awards last week. Personally, I could care less. I am actually someone that does not watch that much T.V. I did for some reason want to watch the tributes to David Bowie, BB King and Glenn Frey. I am not that big a fan of any of them but I do appreciate their work and success. Plus, like many, I was shocked by their passing away. However, as I switched back and forth to catch them I did happen to see Mr. Stevie Wonder present an award and make the statement of the year!

Another Winning Play for Alabama Sports

Another Winning Play for Alabama Sports Tagged with:

As we are in the middle of winter, a behind the scenes event has happened that needs to have some attention. No, it is not Super Bowl 50, halftime shows or any other sporting event. However, it does have something to do with sports in Alabama. Now, I know some of you have heard about the football team, but something even more important has happened.
