    Technology in Child Development – Good or Bad?

        Raising kids is not an easy task, and with full-time jobs, parents have their work cut out for them. But advice comes from all sides, and it’s hard to know whom to trust.

But kids have been raised without technology for thousands of years, so is that really necessary for successful parenthood? Let’s take a quick look at the pros and cons of using technology as a tool to raise our kids: Technology in education     Photo by luciano de…

    What January Blues? 6 Fabulous Ways To Beat The Winter Blues.

    Many people struggle in the new year because Christmas time is over and now there’s nothing large to look forward to (except going back to work, of course). The end of 2017 was pretty crap for me because I was jobless, and I lost a loved one to an awful battle with cancer. To be honest, 2018 was looking pretty bleak and for a long time the idea of the new year wasn’t something that appealed to me. However, over the last few days I have had some good luck come my way and I’m now feeling super optimistic. I begin a new part time job on Friday, and I’ve…

    Dealing With Doctor’s Trip Fears

    The doctor’s office: usually thought of as a white room with a clinician in, sitting in the middle, an air of authority around them, and you as the patient they don’t want to see. However, this idea is entirely wrong, and realising this is the first step in making sure your next doctor’s trip isn’t as bad as the last one. Doctors are just people like the patients they see, and they don’t hold any kind of power over life and death; they’re there to help after all! A fear of the doctor is extremely common to have, so you’re not alone in your mounting tension and anxiety when it…

    Get Fit in the Privacy of Your Own Home

    Staying fit can be a challenge for anyone, what with the demands placed on our time and energy by work, family obligations, and the need to decompress with our favourite hobbies when we finally get a moment to take a breather. For parents of young children, a whole new dimension gets added to the picture, and it can seem hard to find any free time at all, for any purpose at all. As if all that wasn’t enough, getting into fitness for the first time, or after a long lapse, can be a stressful experience in and of itself, and many people find themselves feeling self conscious when trying to…

    How To Maintain A Positive Outlook On Life

    Sometimes, without even realizing it, we can become very negative in terms of the way we think and the way we see things. It’s so easy to become cynical about the world when all we seem to see on the news is constant injustice and tragedy, all while we may be dealing with our own pain and heartache. But negativity will prevent you from being able to truly enjoy your own life, because it will just be that dark cloud that is hanging heavy above your head, and you don’t want that do you? All you need to do is make small adjustments in your life, and you can turn…
