DID YOU KNOW
Women in binge drinking danger!
And the reasons are pretty obvious:
• Women tend to have a greater body fat percentage and because fat cannot absorb alcohol, it is concentrated at higher levels in the blood.
• Women have less of the stomach enzyme dehydrogenase that metabolises booze, so we absorb roughly 30% more alcohol than men of the same height and body weight.
• Women in general are smaller than men, further concentrating alcohol absorption.
• Women tend to eat less, compounding the impact of booze.
• Women experience hormonal changes during their menstrual cycle which intensifies the effects of alcohol.

INSPIRATION OF THE DAY
How to Take Responsibility for Your Life
The most important aspect of taking responsibility for your life is to acknowledge that your life is your responsibility. No one can live your life for you. You are in charge. No matter how hard you try to blame others for the events of your life, each event is the result of choices you made and are making. Listen to the little voice in your head. And, observe yourself talking with coworkers, family members, and friends. Do you hear yourself taking responsibility or placing blame?
• Listen to the voice in your head. Eliminate blame; eliminate excuses. If the blame track or the excuse track plays repeatedly in your mind, you are shifting responsibility for your decisions and life to others.
• Second, listen to yourself when you speak. In your conversation, do you hear yourself blame others for things that don’t go exactly as you want? Do you find yourself pointing fingers at your coworkers or your upbringing, your parent’s influence, the amount of money that you make, or your spouse? Are you making excuses for goals unmet or tasks that missed their deadlines? If you can hear your blaming patterns, you can stop them.
• Third, if an individual you respect supplies feedback that you make excuses and blame others for your woes, take the feedback seriously. Control your defensive reaction and explore examples and deepen your understanding with the coworker or friend. People who responsibly consider feedback attract much more feedback.
