Lifestyle Medicine 2016
There are several premises that establish the need for this book. First, that management of lifestyle is a necessary component for wellness and health promotion, as well as disease prevention and management. Second, that physicians and allied health professionals lack sufficient education and training in lifestyle medicine to fulfill the imperative in the first point above. Third, that existing publications, including a few detailed books on the topic, focus on theory and evidence but not practical implementation in clinical practice. It is this third point that will be specifically targeted by this book.
How will the book be organized to achieve the third target above? A clinical context will be provided first, which defines the need and nature of lifestyle medicine within a paradigm of preventive medicine. Next, the individual components of lifestyle medicine will be presented: nutrition, fitness, sleep, and behavior. Then, specific case studies - spanning wellness, cancer, metabolic disease, cardiovascular-renal-liver disease, etc. -- will be presented with relevant theory, evidence, and practical aspects of lifestyle medicine implementation. Finally, a compendium of practical resources will be provided.Each chapter will be written by a bona fide expert and the format will be highly structured and consistent throughout the book for clarity, brevity, and up-to-date content. The expectation is that concepts can be easily translated into practice by the reader.
To my knowledge, although there are a few textbooks on lifestyle medicine, which are rather comprehensive, encyclopedic, and exhaustive, none are designed specifically for practical implementation. This book therefore extends work in this burgeoning field.
Activity-based Cost And Environmental Management
It is clear that our environment is changing, and not for the better. Companies cannot ignore environmental issues anymore. Public awareness is growing, legislation is tightening, and demand for ISO 14000 compliance is rising. For many, however, the field of environmental management (including ISO 14000) is full of unfamiliar terms, high learning curves, unproductive approaches, much frustration, and often little action. If environmental management is to become widely accepted and self-motivated in industry, it must connect to the basic motivators for business: increased competitiveness and profitability.
Activity-Based Cost And Environmental Management: A Different Approach to the ISO 14000 Compliance demonstrates how environmental assessment and management can be performed based upon familiar principles: cost accounting and cost management. Specifically, this book describes how the well-established Activity-Based Costing and Management principles can be extended with non-monetary environmental dimensions. The result is a single, integrated framework called Activity-Based Cost and Environmental Management that provides the tools and abilities to do both environmental management and cost management in an integrated manner and according to modern management principles. This integration of economic and environmental dimensions based upon familiar cost accounting and management principles makes it easier for decision-makers to not only include the environment in their decision-making, but also to identify, rank and prioritize opportunities for win-win situations where competitiveness is increased and environmental impact reduced at the same time.
In this book, the basic concepts of Activity-Based Cost and Environmental Management are described, as well as how to make your own integrated Activity-Based Cost and Environmental Management implementations and how to get the most out of them using uncertainty distributions, Monte Carlo simulations, and sensitivity charts. Among others, the book includes chapters on environmental management and Activity-Based Costing, as well as several real-life case studies from companies for which the authors implemented Activity-Based Cost and Environmental Management systems.
Adopting The Minimalist Lifestyle
There's too much going on. Have you heard that before? That's exactly what the problem is. It's all around us and it's stuff that we contribute to ourselves as well. It's time for a change - a change in the opposite direction; an actual lifestyle change. "Adopting the Minimalist Lifestyle - How to Achieve A Stress Free, Simple Life" goes into detail about how to condition yourself to understand that you don't need anything beyond the basics. As long as you have the basics or simply only what you need, you're content with that and actually "freed up" to start enjoying what you do have. As a result, the stress is removed because the baggage has been removed. The information in this book will show you how to achieve this in a practical way that would astonish you. This is not a temporary thing that you do today and then next month you're back to the way you were. It is indeed a lifestyle change. Simplifying your life is the way to go so that you can live longer and function better.
