The Graphic artist is a visual communicator whose roles is quintessential in the areas of health, politics, education and economic advancement of a society. These unique duties are clearly discussed to show how effective any artist taking up this role can perform his responsibilities in the society.

Health Roles

The health personnel and workers are identified through the dress that they wore. The various medicines that they administer are nicely kept in well-designed packages to protect them from spoilage. The hospitals and clinics where patients are cared for are a product of contemporary African architecture. The hazardous chemicals, safety tools, and equipment used by the health personnel in discharging their duties are clearly labeled by him to avoid wrong applications and injury. Comprehensive instructions on how to use the medicine given at the health centres are clearly written on the attractive labels attached to their containers designed by him.

The health education which involves sensitizing the general public on deadly diseases and how to prevent them is done through communication tools such as posters, banners, flyers, and handbills etc. The locations of these health centres are made easy through signboards and billboards.

Political Roles

The activities of the various political parties in the country are made possible through the use of works by the Graphic designer. For instance, the emblems and logos with distinguishing colour schemes that help us to distinguish one political party from the other are as a result of him. Moreover, each of the parties makes the general public know of their plans for the nation as well as their campaigns through the use of posters, banners, signboards signposts, flyers, handbills and billboards which are all works of art. What about the locations to the various party offices? Is it not as a result of products done by the Graphic artist? In addition, the various T-shirts, caps, and other paraphernalia that party activists and supporters put on during political rallies and meetings are all products of art.

The uniforms and costumes that are worn by students that bear the emblems and logos designed by him help us to identify students of the various educational institutions. The numerous colourful and illustrative teaching aids that assist greatly in teaching and learning activities. School programs and locations of schools are broadcasted and made known to the general public through products such as banners, signboards, posters, and billboards. Other products like books and other stationery materials affect the teaching and learning processes directly. Announcements, school programs, and general information are made known to students through graphic communication tools such as posters, banners, handbills etc.

Economic Roles

Graphic design products are traded to earn income. People invest in the collections of works of art. The field of Graphic design also offers various employment avenues for members of the society such as Book Illustrator, Poster designer, Package designer, Cartoonist, Graphic animator, Stage designer, Printmaker etc. More importantly is the role Graphic design plays in the success of other trades. It helps in the marketing of products and services. Locations and other relevant information of firms and companies, as well as the products they produce, are nicely depicted on signboards and billboards. Posters, handbills, and flyers assist in the promotion of sales of products.

Cottage industries that help in reducing the unemployment numbers in the country are promoted and preserved through productions in Graphic design. Setting up a cottage industry in the area does not require a lot of capital when compared to other sectors like medicine, agriculture etc. With the acquired manual skills, together with few locally manufactured tools and raw materials, the Graphic designer can produce several creative works that he can sell to make a living in his own house. This helps in reducing the unemployment rates in the country.

Seven Good Reasons to Work With a Health Coach

Posted on June 11, 2019 in Uncategorized

Health Coaching is a new model for total health and wellness in the individual. Health Coaching is not something you only do when you are sick. Health Coaching is about optimization of human potential and has a philosophy of ever expanding possibilities. Health Coaching recognizes that there is an innate intelligence within you, an inborn wisdom that governs all healing, function and repair and that the purpose of all health and wellness practices is to remove interference to this intelligence so your body can heal itself. The 7 good reasons to work with a Health Coach below will outline clearly how you can reach that state of health and wellness in your life right now.

1. You need to be held accountable.

As children there is always someone there to make sure we’re doing what we’re supposed to. As adults, we’re supposed to be able to do this for ourselves. But what if we can’t? What if we keep making other things more important than our health and well being and not moving forward? A health coach can help by checking and asking the right questions and by being a gentle reminder to keep you moving toward your health and wellness goals.

Also, in most traditional models of seeing a health practitioner, we tend to see that person as an expert – they know more about our body than we do and they can tell us exactly what we need to do to get better. This system encourages us in a sense, to place our health in someone else’s hands. We are no longer responsible, the health practitioner is. We are not really accountable, the health practitioner or the pills they told us to take are. In health coaching, you are the best and only expert on you and the only one qualified to know if something will work or not.

2. You want to get your health and well being on track once and for all

Far too many of us have joined gyms or started a diet in the past feeling initially excited only to watch our enthusiasm drain away a few weeks later. We can feel disappointed with ourselves, with the money we’ve wasted and with the lack of results we’ve achieved. Things change, our responsibilities change, time we have available changes and our health and wellness goals. What is it that’s stopping you from committing to a path of improved health? A health coach will help you figure out those answers once and for all and help you find real-life solutions that not only work for you but keep working for you in the future.

3. You know what you need to do be healthy but you just can’t seem to stick to the changes

So, it’s not a question of good health education – the majority of us understand clearly what we need to do to stay healthy – eat lots of fruit and veggies, minimize red meat, exercise regularly and don’t smoke or drink too much. Simple right? Why aren’t more of us doing it then? Before we make any changes in our life we need to agree with the changes, they need to be congruent with our values and they need to make sense in the context of our lives.

4. You struggle with being overweight, are always dieting or otherwise don’t feel good about the way you look.

Being overweight is an issue that affects many Australians. It damages our health and damages our self-esteem. Here, a health coach will help you find your way amidst the huge amount of conflicting information available and keep things as simple as possible – no “diets” just a good look at the way you see, value and use food and how that impacts the amount and types of foods you eat each day.

5. You can’t seem to find or make the time to eat well, exercise regularly or take time for yourself

What’s really going on here? What issues are holding you back from giving yourself what you need to be healthy? Most of us are crazy busy and challenged with “not enough” time but is that the real issue? A health coach will help you identify your personal priorities and find a way to work in your health and wellness goals so you can keep on doing what you want, when you want.

6. You’ve been diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, a stress related condition or some other chronic disease and you want to discover other treatment options available to you.

You’ve had the wake up call. Your body is sending you messages loud and clear that something needs to change. A health coach will help you identify options, alternatives, complimentary treatments and educate you more on conventional approaches so you are well informed and can make the best decisions possible for your health.

7. You have “an addictive personality” and make changes only to find yourself slipping back into unhealthy choices or behavior patterns

Addictive behavior patterns, food addiction and drugs and alcohol can sabotage completely our attempts to make lasting changes in our lives. Health coaching sessions will educate, inspire and support you to deal with these tough issues so you develop all the skills and knowledge you need to create and maintain a life of vibrant health and well being free from addictions of all kinds.

As those of us who’ve had a serious wake up call know, health is the most important thing in our lives – without it, nothing much matters.  Unfortunately, too many of us wait until it’s too late to make changes to our diet and lifestyle. 80% of people in Australia die of “lifestyle diseases” like heart disease, complications of diabetes and many forms of cancer. Can you afford to wait til something’s broken to fix it?

Health coaching is not something you only do when you’re sick. It will help you find your way to better health and well being. After all, you are the best (and only) expert on you. By asking the right questions, providing education and real-world experience we’ll look at alternatives and discover new ideas, possibilities and ways of looking at your health. We’ll help you find what works in your life right now without slipping back into negative eating, exercise or behavior habits. You choose the lifestyle changes, you set the pace and you discover just how good it is possible to feel!

Alternative Health Courses – Some Training Options

Posted on June 9, 2019 in Uncategorized

Programs like iridology, herbal therapy, reflexology, massage and Reiki are all popular forms of alternative health courses available today. Though each educational program varies in length and curriculum, some of these alternative health classes can be completed in as little time as a few weeks.

For instance, if you are interested in taking alternative health courses in iridology, these holistic health programs are commonly offered through weekend workshops or seminars; and can be completed over the course of three weekends. Alternative health programs in iridology focus primarily on the study of the iris; including instruction on the history of iridology, iris photography, anatomy and physiology, topographic iris mapping, and more. Students pursuing education in iridology have the potential to earn certification as a professional iridologist, and will have gained essential skills to identify specific markers on the iris which may indicate health problems. More of a diagnostic practice, many alternative health courses in iridology are often complemented with herbal medicine and supplement training.

Herbal medicine training is also one of many courses that students may take as an independent study or as part of other holistic health curriculums like iridology, naturopathy, homeopathy, and Oriental medicine. Once students have successfully completed all educational requirements of an herbal medicine program, they may be eligible for entry-level positions as herbal medicine therapists, homeopathic practitioners, natural healthcare providers, or Ayurvedic therapists. Of course there are a number of alternative health courses in plant medicine that are optionally designed for the organic home gardener and home health remedies – these classes can be completed through a holistic workshop or home study program.

Reflexology instruction is commonly offered as part of alternative health education in massage therapy, or as an independent certification program. Based on the philosophies and theories of energy healing, reflexology is a touch therapy that is applied to specific pressure points on the soles of the feet, hands, and on the ears.

If you are more committed to an in-depth healing arts education, alternative health courses in massage therapy may be right for you. Massage therapy programs typically range between 300 and 500 hours, but may well exceed these training hours in more advanced curriculums. General studies involve anatomy, physiology, pathology, kinesiology and assorted massage modalities like deep tissue massage, sports massage, and Swedish massage, among others.

If you (or someone you know) are interested in learning more about alternative health options, let professional training within fast-growing industries like massage therapy, cosmetology, acupuncture, oriental medicine, Reiki, and others get you started! Explore alternative health courses near you.
