IT training for elderly people: It's never too late The rate at which technology is developing is so fast that most of us struggle to keep up. When we were children, some of the lucky ones may have had an old Commodore 64, which needed programming language just to access Ms Dos. It seems like it took no more than a blink of an eye for programming language to be replaced with touchscreens and the old Commodore to be replaced with an iPad or tablet. And nobody even knows what Ms Dos is anymore! Continue reading “IT training for elderly people: It’s never too late”

27 tips for better learning and well being

believe-love-faith  
  1. Memorize at least one thing everyday. This will  make your brain sharp and your memory functioning. In this manner you will have a huge library of quotes to bust out at any moment: poetry, sayings and philosophies are your best options.
  2. Try to reduce your attachment to possessions. Individuals with heavy-set to material desires will have trouble when their things are taken away from them or lost, as in the end things begin owning you, not the other way around. When you become a person of minimal needs, you will be more content.
  3. Develop an endless curiosity about things you love. Become “an explorer” and view the world as your “own planet”. Stop and observe all of the little things as completely unique events, try new things, get out of your comfort zone and experience as many different environments and sensations as possible.

Hyperactive child or else?

hyperactive-child I don not think that there is anyone in that has not taken, does not take or will not take a medication for something. Regardless whether it is high blood pressure, diabetes, prostate problems, thyroid dysfunction, ulcers, flue, cold, or depression just to name a few. Not to mention that medication is something that is needed by many, just to stay alive. Preventive medicine and post-preventive medicines are part of this group. Children have always needed medications for childhood illness and some childhood diseases, at larger or at smaller scale. Only within the last 20 years, we have seen school aged children medicated with psychotropic drugs sometimes even as early as preschool. Continue reading “Hyperactive child or else?”

How to discover your genius within?

sky-clear-perspective
How to discover your genius within?   What we know for sure in the abundance of the brain functions that are unexplored, are the facts that the right and left brain are only a small portion of the potential that comprises THE MIND. What you should know is that the mind and the brain are two very different things. Here is the brief explanation why : You can think of the brain as the hard drive of the computer and the mind as the software. Your mind is the intelligence that is in its every cell, every system and every organ of your body. It is that intangible, incredible and awe-inspiring part of you that thinks, remembers, deals with information, makes judgments, forms habits, distinguishes, communicates and makes you who you are. It is the genius within. Biology has proven that your mind takes in all information through the five senses: sight, touch, hearing, smell and taste. If you link the five senses to the keyboard on the computer, you will receive input through your senses, your “data entry” system. Upon this your brain stores, categorizes and utilizes this information. What you should know is that a genius knows how to access that information and then apply it in discovering the solutions to any problems that may arise. This is why it is essential that you discover your own individual style for gathering and communicating information, in order to achieve your optimum development. Some of us process sensory input, more effectively through visual means, whereas others through auditory stimuli, or through a kinesthetic – a touch or feel – approach. If you want to contemplate which way your genius accesses information, imagine for a moment that you are buying a new item of clothing for an important meeting. Would you be most influenced to buy primarily for: a) the color and style of the outfit; b) the benefits the salesperson tells you about the clothing; c) the texture and feel of the fabric? If you chose a) then your brain receives information primarily through visual means. If you have chosen b) you perceive information primarily through auditory means. If your selection was c) – you most likely access information through kinesthetic means. But, what you should know is that everyone learns and communicates in all three of these modes in different situations. Most people have developed a natural preference, and tend to use one method then the other – more frequently. This is why it is your goal to become aware of your preference and then strive to strike a balance between all three modes: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic, in order to reach your top potential. – Are you willing to stretch your abilities by consciously choosing to use your other senses more than the other? – Can you imagine the benefits of opening your mind to receive ALL the input from the world around you? If you have answered – yes – then this will give you an awareness of an exciting world that has been there all along, but which you may have been missing. Let’s clear up, it is natural for you to use what is comfortable, but please bear in mind that the awakened genius is willing to grow. Take the example of the turtle, you will not go far if you do not go out of your shell. What you should know is that you will be pleasantly surprised if you practice using and developing your other senses. In this way you will notice how your memory improves and how easy it becomes for you to make choices. In this direction you will discover a whole new world of communication! When you learn to create a balance in perception, you will be on your way to think “holographically” and use the full power of your genius! Let me know what are your views and whether you agree or not with the thoughts I have given above, I would really like to hear from you.

Who’s teaching the babies? New revolutionary edu resources

Who’s teaching the babies? New revolutionary edu resources   Establish and affirm a baby’s unique identity and purpose Maybe you already know that babies’ development begins in the mothers’ womb, but what you might know is that you can teach the babies while they are in the mothers’ womb. It might seem odd to you, but for Dr. Melodye Hilton it does not seem this ways, as she has developed the page “Who’s Teaching the Babies?™”, a new Christian-based resource, that is providing curriculum and educational tools for daycares, caregivers and churches. There is no better place to establish the foundational reason for being, than at the beginning—conception. Dr. Hilton says, “Through science and proven experience, we have recognized the life-empowering results of teaching babies in the most crucial and foundational window of opportunity—conception through three years.” What you are asking yourself is: How can people teach babies? Fact that we should have in mind are the following: An infant’s brain begins to form just three weeks after conception. During this time, trillions of neurons are produced, reaching a lifetime high before birth. Synapses – connections between cells in the brain – are rapidly developed, with memory beginning at only four months in utero. In this vital stage of life, it has been scientifically proven that is the foundational launching point for a human being’s entire life. The experiences, interactions, social connections, and words received during this once-in-a-lifetime developmental stage, are building the framework for the child’s future. Not only are personality and intellect shaped during this time, but also habitual thought patterns, identity, emotional health, and the ability to trust. WTTB™ is created to meet this core need in a healthy and life-giving way! Dr. Hilton has developed a series of teaching tools, that were meticulously designed with parents and grandparents in mind. Beyond in-home use, the easy-to-use format translates easily into individual and group settings, making it ideal for daycare centers and churches. With a vibrant and colourful display, friendly to use – Who’s Teaching the Babies?™ makes it appealing for babies and young children to receive not only education, but also validation as a significant and unique individual with meaningful purpose. Dr. Hilton emphasises that, “We can positively impact our future society if we are willing to invest into the babies and children of today. We can strengthen a generation to go against the odds of societal pressure and live successful and healthy lives.” Each baby is a valuable, precious, and worth the investment, as identity and destiny are established…one baby at a time!

How to seek counseling help while at university?

counseling
counseling Many students find their university years particularly challenging, in which case seeking counselling help is the best thing for them to do so they can talk through their problems and find a way to cope with their depression or anxiety. If you feel like you need help to get through the next few years, read our guide on how to find counselling services while at university.

The growing strain on counselling services

Students who are finding it difficult to cope with university life, are feeling very homesick, aren’t used to such huge life changes or used to see a counsellor at home and feel isolated without their help will find it useful to seek therapy help while pursuing their studies.Indeed, Help Me Investigate reported an increase in the number of students in counselling in 2013, with 33% more seeking help since 2008. In some universities there has been a significant rise, such as The University of Glasgow where 130% more students were in counselling in 2011/12 compared with 2008/09. This was followed by Lancaster University and The University of York, which saw 127.62% and 118.34% increases respectively. This growth may be explained by more students being aware of university’s counselling services, as opposed to an increase in young people suffering from mental health issues. A University of Glasgow spokesperson was quoted by The Guardian as saying: “[While] it is true that there has been a rise in the number of students seeking assistance, this may – at least in part – be due to increased awareness of the services and support that is now available.”

Finding counselling services at your university

The first place to look when searching for university services is online, most HE establishment websites have information regarding the counselling they offer, and this can help answer some important questions you have about the facility. If you can’t find anything online, it is worth popping into your university’s student union as it will have pamphlets that will allow you to research further. Whether you take leaflets on the counselling service or read up on it online, this will help you understand more about what your university offers and help you make a decision about whether seeking therapy is the right step for you. Universities typically offer private sessions run by professionally qualified counsellors who are trained to deal with students who have issues with anxiety, depression, bereavement, self-harming, abuse, eating problems, stress disorders and abuse. You can usually book appointments by contacting the service and get an allocated timeslot to visit; alternatively, some universities have drop-in sessions, so you can just pop in if you have an urgent problem or don’t want to book a formal appointment. Some universities also run counselling groups, so if you’d rather discuss your issues or talk through ways you can help handle your problems with other people going through similar things, this could be the best option for you. Students living in accommodation at The University of Bristol for instance can attend a number of different counselling groups, from a stress management one to a writing therapy session. Students can also typically access lots of self-help information from their counselling services if you’re dealing with issues that you feel you are capable of coping with by yourself. Leaflets on exam anxiety, time management, relaxation and helping friends with depression are usually available, and simply reading up on the topic might provide you with the ability to handle your problems more easily. Workshops are also often available, offering students tips on how they can better manage their problems such as low self-esteem or having difficulty adjusting to a different culture – something that could be particularly valuable for international students. Once you have access to your university’s counselling services, you’ll be in a better position to choose a programme of therapy that suits you the most. After you have done this, you can be on the right track to feeling better and can begin to really enjoy your university experience free from any worries or anxiety!
