Time Out for Renewal and Self Development – 1

In talking to friends this past weekend, it was obvious that many mothers are suffering from burn out and other stress related issues. They commonly say they wish they could be happier and not so snappy with their children and were trying to work out how to keep their children happier and entertained.

Certainly, looking after the children’s needs are important to all parents and consumes a lot of time, but looking after self needs is equally important. Time out is a period of solitude where the focus is on self development and self reflection. It can be an extremely beneficial and self affirming activity.

Do you give yourself permission to take an extended amount of time away from your children, your work or anything in your life causing you stress and burn out? If you don’t, you are not alone. Most people don’t take time out, but look at the benefits of making this a priority at least once a year. 

·         Taking extended time out gives the chance to take a step back and decide how to move forward in your life. When you are in the middle of life and all its responsibilities, it’s easy to focus on survival and not on achievement. Take time out each year to make some life goals. They can focus on your family, but  having some goals for your parenting, will help you look back on the year and realize what achievements you have achieved in the previous year and what you want to achieve in the coming year.
·         Time out is not a selfish activity, but a time to be critical and honest about yourself and your life. Its focus is to improve your relationships and to help your family and friends. Personal Time Out gives you the opportunity to look at your life and your responsibilities, evaluate what you are doing right and how you can improve those things you feel are not going as planned.

Taking a few hours or a few days out of your busy schedule is not running away from your responsibilities, it is rather an opportunity to find your energy and focus again so you can keep “running towards them” and embrace your life and its responsibilities with a new enthusiasm. Decide to make having an annual personal time out a priority in your life and gain assistance from your family  to acieve it.

The Effects of Meditation on Your Health

The health of a human being is very crucial, and billions of dollars are spent every year to ensure that the people are healthy. Healthy people are more productive, and a healthy nation is automatically a wealthy one. However, all this money does not need to be spent on health when there are so many other means that do not need even a dime to be effective. Meditation is one of those. However, I must say that people are becoming more and more aware of meditation, and it is becoming more acceptable across the world.
Meditation causes various changes in the different parts of the brain, and these changes bring positive effects on the body tissues and organs. The sphere in the brain that enables one to reason and analyze issues usually pauses and rests when it is time for meditation. This, in turn, makes less adrenaline to be released into the blood, and all the organs become relaxed and they naturally heal from the effects of too much adrenaline. Also, the right signals are sent to the or…

What Is Network Marketing?

Most people do not have the slightest idea what network marketing is, and they have all sorts of perceptions and prejudice about it. However, this article will seek to clarify what network marketing really is.
First and foremost, you need to understand how the chain of manufacturing, supply and demand goes. When the manufacturer makes a commodity, the transporters are used to distribute the goods. The transporters may be the manufacturer’s or may be the distributors. When these goods get to the distributor, they are stored, and wholesalers come for them so that they cam sell the goods to the retailers, who in turn sell the goods to the consumer. Apart from these, other middlemen are involved. The company that makes the commodity has to advertise for it, and that is why your programs are filled with commercial breaks.
