To offer solutions or not?

“ix625” or “ix” noted via comment (in regards to my post about “passion” ) that I could try offering solutions. I appreciate this feedback because it helps me to determine what people reading my blogs want, or conversely, what people perceive my blogs to mean.

One of the reasons I ask the questions I do, is to encourage or stimulate dialogue – a forum for discourse about comment interests and themes specifically related to existentialist themes and/or social relations.

My reasoning here is that although I have training and education in relation to the above-noted matters I cannot conceive of myself as an expert in isolation from the commentary of others (Paulo Freire speaks of this paradox).

This is not to say that I won’t offer solutions in the near future!

Finally, I am grateful for any responses to my posts that relate to the subject matter…thanks to all who have commented so far!

Work-Life Balance

“Beassertive” commented on her positive experience in incorporating more balance into her life via maintaining connections with family, friends, good nutrition, exercise, and perhaps, as I understand it, focusing more on the NOW than on the future.

Maintaining good social support networks (family, friends, formal supports) is essential, in my view, to having a balanced lifestyle. In addition, staying healthy physically (eating well, regular exercise, and enough sleep) is crucial to well-being. Just as important, is the need for women (and men) to identify what gives them meaning and purpose in life. Without this we are robotic beings clumsily moving through our days without vision and purpose.

How then, do we keep ourselves ahead by using the above strategies for well-being when the greatest challenge may be finding  the time?

Connecting like-minds

I’m still learning to blog but curious to converse with other bloggers who want to engage in dialogue about women and health care in British Columbia. How does women’s health diverge from men’s and is our current health care system adequately attending to women’s health adequately?
