Social media senario 

Hi guys 

I know it’s been a while since I last posted, as I’ve been struck down with a bug. We all need time every now and then to recharge and get well, well this was my time. 

As days progress I think about my life as a child, what I did for entertainment, how we played and what resources we had, and then it dawned on me, that we didn’t have all this social media. We had toys and imagination.  Something I find is missing in a 21st century child. I myself have had enough of social media, the endless scrolling through nothing and repeated posts, the addiction to picking up your phone or tablet, for me this has to change .

 Now I understand word press can be categorised into maybe a small proportion of social media, I feel it’s more of an outlet. Anyway my point. …

I’ve taken a break from social media

I said it out loud and I love it. 

Every day I spend time on mainly facebook, I wake up and I check to see what’s been happening through the night, the answer ……..is nothing. 

I checked to see if my friends had posted. ……..another subliminal insult.

I look and see, the constant reassurance and constant digs of ‘I’m better than you’. 

Now I get told not to let it affect me, but the reality is that it does. I have no idea why, nor do I wish to delve into the reasons for that, but I just can’t keep being held prisoner to the social media platform …..

Today I am free. 

Have a blessed evening

Good morning and what a beautiful day

Good Morning World !! 

I hope today brings you as much happiness as you desire.  

I love it when we wake and the sun is shiny,  it fills me with so much inspiring thoughts for the day. Now don’t worry, I love the rain as equally as much, it’s just a different kind of inspiration.  

The weather dictates a lot to the way that we feel, and it is a proven theory that when it’s windy, the children are are little more excitable, no one knows why this is, it’s just a theory, and I’ve worked in numerous settings to see that this theory is true  Hence why it’s said the sunshine makes you feel great, and I happen to agree.

Anyway, today’s plans for me are to resource buy,  I’ve spend so long compiling all my plans, it’s now time to take the next step ! 

It’s important to start the way you mean to go on, and that for me is to ensure everything is perfect for 3Trees. A tidy mind will help pave the way to a clearer outlook and future.

We can get so bogged down with our own thoughts and our own processes, that it’s hard to find a solution.  For me, I’ve had to learn to prioritize the element of control.  

Note down everything you feel is starting to take the strain, place them into lists – 

  • What can I control 
  • What can not be controlled 
  • What needs to be done asap
  • What can wait

This helps create a plan, which in turn helps to generate a new outlook, have a look outbreak qindow, take time to be in them moment.

Most of all breathe ! 

Calm slow breaths ! 

You can do this and you can achieve this ! 

Have a totally blessed day

Oak Tree Mindfulness 

Hi 

Just a little back ground on my programme – Oak Tree Mindfulness 

This is a wonderful program aimed at helping people utilise skills they already have, and allowing them to change their outlook on an everyday situation.  

It’s also a great skill to have, to help with anxiety,stress and many other medical issues. 

The oak tree mindfulness is primarily aimed at children of all ages. Children experience a lot more stress now than ever before, whether that stress is due to starting nursery,  sat exams,  social peer pressure or everyday strains. 

They have so much to deal with and when I think back to when I was a child I don’t remember having all this to pressure.

I am a mom, an aunt, a school buddy. I have worked with children of all ages and have had to adapt to many situations, this is why,  more than ever I want to help. 

My programme helps children to apply mindfulness in each situation. It’s about finding a coping mechanism for them,  which will in turn help them change the way they think and utilise these skills to help in situations beyond their control. They won’t be able to change a situation,  more so cope with a situation.

We are slowly becoming are 24/7 world. Family life balance is becoming a lot harder to manage due to the restrictions parents have, children are aware earlier to the every stress. 

More to come on this later on…..
