Why do we go this way?


"I've been driving for more than 20 years. When I started to drive, it was a mixture of horror and delight. It was scary that I could not manage the administration, I would fly somewhere, I would be beaten by a car or I would knock someone. And I was delighted that I was sitting and moving at the same time, I easily manage this machine ... Then there was a dependence: I drive by car always and everywhere. It protects me from the weather, from the crowd, from the need to carry weights. I can listen to the music I love, and in general I feel good in the car ...

We drive the way we live. If on the street, in the transport we are ready to pass, attentive and attentive, we will also behave on the road. I, for example, leave a long distance in front of me, and it's easy to cut me. I try to miss others, I see people (cars) on the right and left. And in order to suddenly start to behave aggressively, I need to somehow specifically agree with myself - this happens when I'm too hasty.

During the movement, the driver and the car become a single whole, and it turns out that the car is me, and other machines are other people. And on the road between these "centaurs" - man-machines - there is constant communication. In the flow of machines obey the laws of the crowd. A very dense stream (without standing traffic jams) is a realm of stress.The "wolf" laws begin to operate there. The bigger the car, the bolder it is. Caught - you will be punished. If someone goes slower than the flow, he is an idiot, he is despised and popularly explained to him ... As in the crowd, in the stream we become vicious and aggressive. To keep the dignity and behave correctly, few - usually those who are very good leads, professionals who have learned not to identify themselves with the crowd, like surgeons who know how not to die with each patient.

It's another matter, when everything has risen - because of the repair of the road, an accident or a blockage of travel for dignitaries. Drivers in these situations become more solid, as they have a common external enemy. Machines begin to move through one, let those who must wedge into the stream, respond to requests, signals. That is, we try to behave nobly, like people who respect other people. "

Syndrome of loneliness.

"It is difficult for beginners to be left alone with the road. My husband first went with me. When he could not, I planted a dog. So it was easier for me. "

Hooligans are driving.

"There is an opinion that a woman at the wheel is a disaster.In my opinion, much more dangerous at the wheel of hooligans. I regularly see people with iPads who read or write something, talk without hands-free, dial messages, arrange races ... That's terrible, that's what you need to punish. "

Say thanks.

"It's natural for Europeans to thank and agree: they have always been compelled to do this, they have a small territory on which to live. And the Russians have never had such a thing: they did not like something - they took it and moved, there are a lot of land. This feature has been preserved in our minds as well. Although to thank, to blink with an emergency, to raise your hand - all these are wonderful signs of attention. I had an idea to make a running line on the back window, which would all soothe, like "dear fellow travelers ..."

ANNA VARGA, board member of the Society of Family Consultants and Psychotherapists.

"No" means "maybe"


I could no longer afford to live in my own home, handed it over and moved to a small room for servants, next to the kitchen, in the apartment of my friends. I had to take care of my daughter, and the work was needed as air. I have never managed to organize my own business before, and now I had no idea what to do. One time I was thinking of becoming a waitress and once, having collected all my will into a fist, I went to the nearest restaurant and asked to work. But, to my horror, they refused me. I tried my luck in neighboring institutions, and again unsuccessfully. A woman who yearns, apparently, radiates unhappiness. In addition to the closest friends, no one even had time to listen to me. It seemed that I was standing on the side of the road, and life was racing by. I knew very well that no one would rush to save me, I would have to save myself.

And now, quite by accident, from a friend of my friend, I found out about a vacancy in one of the small advertising bureaus. Obligations were to brew coffee, wash cups and answer phone calls. Only everything, but I was crazy for joy: it was Work!

take the tests

Can you turn the page and start a new life?

At the same time, I began to audition for different roles in the movies (and did not receive them). I always hid some scenarios on my knees under the desk in the office and studied them between the calls. During dinner I rushed to the auditions, so that no one, God forbid, did not notice my absence.

I sent out faxes and made copies, washed dishes and cooked coffee, learned to organize myself and others (later it was very useful to me). I knew very well that my salary was not enough to put my daughter on my feet and get out of the maid's room. It was necessary to change something. Once, when I was sewing papers in the office, I suddenly saw how much the most last-named actor who earns money in a commercial video in my agency earns. More than me! It was time to go forward, go up to the next step.

But fate gave me another unexpected "gift". The people who lived in my house turned it into ruins. The real estate agent, whom I hurriedly called, confessed that for all the years of work I had not seen a house that would have been left by tenants in a worse condition: furniture chewed by the dog, torn curtains, broken valuables.Among the junk, I suddenly discovered my favorite wooden duck, which I had bought a long time ago on a flea market. The dog nearly stripped her head.

"A book for the lazy, or How to learn not to postpone everything for later" Rita Emmett "The book for the lazy, or How to learn not to postpone everything for later" In fact, this book is not intended for all lazy people, but only for those of them who like to put everything off for a long time.

I never could boast of a practical note or the ability to do anything with my hands, and in any case I never had to repair duck heads. But there was no way out: either give up, or fight to the end. I started acting immediately. I found the address of a respectable furniture maker who gave me faith in humanity. "Do not worry like that. I think I can help, "he said with a smile. Thus, some of the problems were solved. A minor, seemingly event, was a turning point in my life. If I managed to return the life of my cherished duck, then maybe I can fix everything else? I stubbornly rebuilt my house, learned from my own mistakes, and rejoiced at every little victory.

I was full of strength and I was convinced that my optimism could give a lot to people, but I also understood that it seems to no one but me.Having decided once to get acquainted with the statistics devoted to women of my generation, I made a stunning discovery. It turned out that women from 45 to 55 years are the fastest growing group of the population. Yes this is about me! About us! But who is listening to us? Who is talking to us at all? I was categorically disagreeing with the fact that only the first half of my life was worth something.

Looking through my notebook, I began to cover the thresholds of the largest cosmetic firms and salons, trying to convince their owners that they were in fact wrong and miss many things, focusing only on the fresh faces of adolescent girls or those who only twenty past. But there are a lot of women on the planet like me and my friends! Again the door slammed in my face. But I did not give up.

For me, "no" then meant "maybe", and nothing more. I was really convinced of my rightness, and this helps to overcome any adversity. I asked: "What can you do for women after 40, who look great, but want to look even better? Why are there no portraits in the media? Why does no one talk to us? "And the more often I talked with my contemporaries, the better I understood,how unhappy they are because nobody removes them, shows them on television, how they lack advertising in newspapers and magazines. We seem to have ceased to exist. And who will like it if they do not notice you and do not appreciate you? Personally it never suited me.

About age

Despite the absence of any interest and general misunderstanding, I continued to insist on my own. Little by little the doors began to slowly open, the "cosmetics titans" began to listen to my words. It was a new and very fruitful idea: to show that between the beauty of youth and the beauty that is given to us by experience and years of tireless work on our own soul and appearance, there is no abyss. Beauty does not disappear with age and is characteristic not only of youth.

Soon, my friend and agent, Brian Bantry, set up a new agency with two "decrepit mannequins," one of which was your humble servant. Now only in the state of us 35 people! Ten years ago, we would have had to forget about our career. Now everything has changed.

Time passed. And suddenly I was suddenly lucky. The company Clairol first, crushing the age barriers, arranged a fashion show dedicated to hair dyes, and called for this purpose all the famous models from 1970-1980. I was invited as a lead.Then in Estee Lauder they remembered me and offered to present their cosmetic products, developed against the aging and withering of the skin. On the day that this contract ended, work was brought to L'Oreal. Finally, I again had the opportunity to do what I really love: to travel around the world, meeting all kinds of women with unreasonable cares and beautiful dreams. I was chosen to represent the skin care cosmetics series Plenitude, and this meant that the world is entering a long-awaited era when the woman's age ceases to matter. "

Recently, New You magazine published a cover of Carmen dell'Orefiche on the cover. This event would hardly have been a sensation, if not for the age of the model. Carmen dell'Orefiche is now 84 years old, and for the first time she appeared on the cover of Vogue in 1946.

What is the cause of the crisis of middle age?What is the cause of the crisis of middle age?

Traditionally, a middle-aged crisis was associated with a person's mature thinking about what he had achieved in life. However, researchers are now beginning to suspect that, apparently, it is of a biological nature, programmed by the life cycle of a person.

Ideal from scattered driving


Of course, now attempts are being made to solve this problem. Some cars have a head-up display system that shows all the information needed by the driver on the windshield. Thus, the driver does not need to take his eyes off the road. Other cars are produced with the function of the built-in phone, so that we can receive calls, write messages and sit on the Internet without looking up from the steering wheel. At the heart of these developments lies the erroneous belief that if our eyes are looking at the road, and the hands are on the steering wheel, then we are maximally concentrated on driving, and nothing will happen. But this is not so.

Head-up display allows the driver not to turn away from the road in search of the necessary information. However, it distracts our attention. Studies using similar functions in the aircraft, conducted back in the 1980s, showed that such displays reduce the likelihood that the pilot will notice something unexpected even in his own field of vision. When our attention is distracted, we look, but do not see.

"Well, who goes that way!"

Approximately the same story and with hand-free devices, which have only voice control.In any case, the use of the phone requires mental effort, not only during a conversation, but also after it. Psychologist Cary Stothart (Cary Stothart) is convinced that the mere fact that we received a message is already very distracting from driving, even if we do not read it.

To solve these problems, we need only one thing: to recognize that human cognitive functions are not unlimited, and intuition can crack. This would just be taken into account in the driving mode function. It would disable the most common sources of annoying driver attention: calls, messages, games and social networks. It would exclude any possibility of communication between the driver and the outside world, except for GPS, navigation and emergency calls.

Road: the space of aggression or freedom?

For several years, smartphones on the Windows 8 platform have a great version of this mode, but they make up only 3% of the total smartphone market. This mode was not built into either Apple iOS or Google Android.

However, it should be recognized that driving mode can be useful only if people use it. Hence, such a regime should be easily included. Ideally, in one movement, since it is not easy for all of us to cope with the desire to immediately respond to a message.It is driving mode that should automatically send the "I'm driving" notification in response to all calls and messages.

Perhaps the most difficult thing here is to get drivers to turn on this mode. Providers could charge small fees for using such a regime or take penalties for ignoring it. The best option so far is the automatic activation of the mode, when the phone's GPS detects the beginning of the car's movement.

Available on all phones, the airplane mode, for all time of its existence, has not saved a single life. It is almost never used, and there is not a single case when it would cause a plane crash. But auto-mode could save lives every day.

Pregnant (not) is worth eating for two


Endocrinologist, specialist on hormonal disorders Teresa Hillier (Teresa Hillier) together with colleagues for 10 years conducted a special study: they monitored the health of 13 thousand children who were born with normal weight1. Teresa Hillier also studied the behavior of mothers during pregnancy.

Between 2 and 10 years, 49% of children weighed more than the norm, and 29% diagnosed obesity. As it turned out, it directly depended on how much weight their mother had gained during pregnancy. Women who had diabetes during pregnancy were born with children with a high (29%) risk of obesity by 10 years. And if a woman during pregnancy gained more than 18 kg, the risk of obesity in her child increased to 16%.

"When a woman gains weight during pregnancy, the baby in the womb adapts to an over-saturated environment, and as a result, his metabolism changes"

"When a woman gains more weight during pregnancy, the process begins, which I call" the print of obesity, "says Teresa Hillier. "A child in the womb adapts to an over-saturated environment, and as a result, his metabolism changes."In the study, Teresa Hillier, 20% of expectant mothers received more than 18 kg during pregnancy. While doctors do not recommend women to gain more than 11-15 kg. At the same time, about 12% of women, having submitted tests for diabetes, received overestimated results, although they did not face this disease. And 5% diagnosed the so-called "diabetes mellitus pregnant."

Interestingly, the propensity to obesity is even in those children who were born with normal weight. It turns out that the expression "a pregnant woman can eat for two" is a dangerous myth. Such behavior can cause serious harm not only to the mother, but also to the child.

What to do? "In the first place - to control weight during pregnancy and try not to exceed the rate set by your doctor - recommends Teresa Hillier. - After birth, it is important to breastfeed the baby, preferably up to 6-8 months: everyone knows that breastfeeding reduces the risk of obesity and diabetes in infants. "

In addition, the diet and sports loads need to be monitored not only during pregnancy, but also before it. As for the baby's diet, it also requires your close attention.

I'm afraid to take the driver's license examination


"How to imagine myself driving: so much to remember! Steering wheel, gas, brake, a lot of rules ... I just barely breathe when I think about it, - confesses 44-year-old Alexander. - Maybe I should not take the right. Suddenly, I will be a bad driver, a threat to others on the road? "But Alexander is a man with a higher education, an experienced archivist, a mother of three, knows and knows a lot. So why does she, like many of her comrades in misfortune, feel that she can not surrender to the rights?

I avoid possible failures. Driving license does not get without an exam, even two: first you need to pass the theory (traffic rules), then driving. But the very thought of this is of concern to many, it "awakens in us the fear of failure associated with examinations," explains psychoanalyst Virginie Megglé. Anxiety of this kind is often combined with a heightened sense of responsibility, which is characteristic of those who are used to taking care of others.

I draw a catastrophic scenario. In every possible way to evade the receipt of a driver's license,whose imagination is filled with frightening thoughts: "I can not manage the management", "I risk becoming the culprit of the accident" ... "The car that we do not have yet becomes the object of our fantasies, and we can unconsciously project on him thoughts of death," - points out psychoanalyst.

It's hard for me to grow up. The inability to drive drives us into a dependent position. "It's often a sign that it's hard for us to grow up," Virgini Meggle continues. - The fear of losing all the advantages of childhood is stronger than the natural desire to gain independence. It happens that parents, not realizing this problem, insist that their child surrender to the rights, thereby reinforcing his inner protest. " And then instead of driving the car ourselves, we prefer to depend on who will give us a lift if necessary.

Galina, 34 years old, nurse

"When my mother was nervous, I was very risky, even if my brother and I were sitting in the backseat. And she often told me that I was not fit for anything. It took me many years to overcome my fear and decide to drive. I asked my husband to teach me how to drive.I was more comfortable with him than with the driving instructor. I told myself that my mother was wrong and that I would succeed. And it turned out: after six months of training, I got a driver's license on the first attempt. "

What to do Move forward in stages

Divide the receipt of the driver's license for individual segments (enroll in courses, buy a collection of tickets ...). And continue to shorten these segments until the task on each of them does not seem feasible (enroll in the courses: first find the nearest to the house, then dial the number and negotiate ...). Enjoy what you are already doing, and improve what can be improved through training. And do not consider getting rights the end of the path: after all, you will learn further.

read also "No" means "maybe" Live in the present

Constantly thinking about the failures in the future ("I'm going to get traffic rules", "I'll mix the gas with the brake" ...), we lose touch with the present. To restore it, switch to immediate experiences ("No danger threatens me during the lesson or in this stationary machine"), do not look too far into the future and do not miss the chance to rejoice in the present.

Approve your choice

To surrender to the rights is not to become like everyone else. If you reject driving as behavior involving danger or cruelty, consider that the choice of driving style depends only on you. If you wish, you can take any precautions: for example, to drive only during the day and not to exceed the speed limit.

Even the best friends sometimes find it difficult to understand each other - especially if one is a driver and another is a pedestrian. All the time it turns out that they see the world from different angles.

Natural energy: what's the use?


The most famous among them - ginseng, lemongrass, golden root (rhodiola rosea), aralia, eleutherococcus, levzeya.

Studies have shown: these plants do not just cause a surge of vivacity and increase efficiency. After their reception, the body's resistance to adverse external influences grows. Acceleration of adaptation to physical and mental overload, cold, heat, nervous stress, lack of oxygen and other extreme factors. Therefore, plants of this group are called adaptogens. Preparations from these plants restore the altered functions of the body to normal. Therefore adaptogens are most effective at mental and physical overfatigue: they increase working capacity in 1,5-2 times. And, unlike doping, do not turn off the regulatory functions of the nervous system. Their reception increases concentration, memory, improves appetite and, oddly enough, sleep (the latter, of course, if the drug is used in the morning in a moderate dosage).

Adaptogens can not be used with increased nervous excitability, hypertension, acute infectious diseases, high temperature.
