Diabetes, Dad's & parenting

Being a dad when you have diabetes
Over the years at Diabetes Counselling Online we have spoken to many men with diabetes who worry about whether they will be able to children and how the complications of diabetes such as erectile dysfunction may affect their chances of this; whether they will pass diabetes on to their children and how they will look after their family when they have the pressures of working life and managing their diabetes. In a nutshell - dad's are parents too!

Deep Relaxation and Meditation

Deep Relaxation and Meditation | Diabetes Counselling Online | Scoop.it

Deep relaxation and meditation are very natural and very powerful activities.

Meditation is the method of bringing a scattered, disorganised mind into a state of peace, quiet and tranquillity. It is about focus and calmness.

The word meditation, is derived from two Latin words : meditari (to think, to dwell upon, to exercise the mind) and mederi (to heal).

You might think meditation is a worship or prayer. But it is not this.

A focus is used, such as a candle flame, a Mantra or the rhythm of the natural breath. During mediation it is normal for our mind to wander off again and again, but you learn to gently bring your mind back to the subject of concentration.  In this way, Meditation means awareness. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. "Watching your breath" is meditation; listening to the birds is meditation. As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to the mind, it is effective meditation.

When you live with diabetes and the every day stress of life, mediation can be an effective way of calming your mind and giving you focus. It can help you to feel more peaceful and more able to keep managing on a day to day basis.
