Question and answer
What are some psychosocial factors that contribute to eating behaviors? What are some ways to overcome these factors
Personalities. According to psychologists at the National Institute of Mental Health, most people with eating disorders share these personality characteristics: low self-esteem, perfectionism, feelings of helplessness, and anxiety. [ They have overly high expectations and have "all-or-nothing" thinking patterns. Can you see how these traits connect to overcontrol of eating? The problem is,
disordered eating patterns aren't triggered by these characteristics, but they may make it more difficult to recover. Emotional causes. Anger and other emotions that are not expressed easily can feed a disorder. In fact, therapists believe that eating disorders are more about trying to relieve uncomfortable feelings and solving life problems than they are about food. The person often is afraid to express these emotions verbally and directly, so he or she does it indirectly through disordered eating patterns. For some, a strong emotion will trigger an eating binge. Others may overeat to mask and numb-out difficult emotions. Non-eaters are able to feel something, even if it's physical pain, which may be easier to deal with than their actual emotions. ]

how can you incorporate muscular strength in your life
Weegy: Muscular endurance and muscular strength are both valuable to athletic performance, and to daily life for that matter, but they are two totally different things. Having muscular strength enables you to lift heavy objects for a short time frame. [ Having muscular endurance enables you to move light objects repetitively for an extended period of time, like stacking hay bales in your friend's barn. To build muscular endurance, leave the heavy dumbbells to the power lifters. You can read this article for details : Read more: ] (More)

what can you do to minimize errors when using commas and apostrophes in your writing?
Weegy: Commas and apostrophes are not there just because it feels good. They actually mean something. [ Just like the difference between "accept" and "except," there is a difference between the meaning of many sentences when you make the decision to put the comma in or leave it out. Apostrophes are the same. "The boys' book" means that the book belongs to several boys, while "The boy's book" has only one owner. Your question was about how to minimize the errors, and there is an answer, although it is not simple and won't be fast. First, you need to learn the differences in meaning which placement or omission of commas and apostrophes signal. You can do this with textbooks about writing skills or with style manuals. Take a look in a brick and mortar bookstore or check at a library. Once you know why "My sister, (comma) who lives in Vermont, (comma) married young" doesn't mean the same thing as "My sister who lives in Vermont married young (no commas), then you must watch what you are doing when you write. Make sure you are saying what you mean. If you mean "it is," then you use the apostrophe (as in "It's too late to go out,") but if you mean "belonging to it" then you don't (as in "The dog bit its tail.") Correct use of commas and apostrophes is a matter of knowing the meanings and developing the habit of paying attention. ] (More)
