"Has anyone ever had any negative feedback?"
Patrick Sometimes someone will write in saying they did not get faster. We then review how to do the exercises with them to make sure they are doing them properly. Sometimes that helps.
Usually people who have negative feedback have never really tried the program properly themselves or don't understand it.
They may have the idea that the program is to help them get stronger and they think there are better ways to get stronger - which is understandable;
O r else they may teach other methods to get faster and don't want to introduce new techniques that would change what they have been teaching all along - that is to be expected.
Or they may have had some success getting faster using other methods and it makes them feel good to think they have the answers - that can happen too.
The effect of a grateful outlook on psychological and physical well-being was examined. In Studies 1 and 2, participants were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 experimental conditions (hassles, gratitude listing, and either neutral life events or social comparison); they then kept weekly (Study 1) or daily (Study 2) records of their moods, coping behaviors, health behaviors, physical symptoms, and overall life appraisals. In a 3rd study, persons with neuromuscular disease were randomly assigned to either the gratitude condition or to a control condition. The gratitude-outlook groups exhibited heightened well-being across several, though not all, of the outcome measures across the 3 studies, relative to the comparison groups. The effect on positive affect appeared to be the most robust finding. Results suggest that a conscious focus on blessings may have emotional and interpersonal benefits.
A significant ageing of the population in the next several decades is projected for most regions of the world, starting with Europe where 34 % of the population is projected to be over 60 years old by 2050. In Latin America and the Caribbean and in Asia, the population will be transformed from having 11% to 12% of people over 60 years old today to more than 25% by 2050. Africa has the youngest age distribution of any major area, but it is also projected to age rapidly, with the population aged 60 years or over rising from 5% today to 9% by 2050.
