5 Ways To Get More Focus And Get More Zing! ~ #TheZenZing

#TheZenZing 5 Ways To Get More Focus And get More Zing Energising
 

Welcome back to #TheZenZing where I help you put the zing back into your life.

This time I’m going to give you 5 ways to get more focussed and get more zing!

#TheZenZing 5 Ways To Get More Focus And get More Zing Energising

 So, how do you focus on something?

Try writing things down.  Because writing things down makes things visual and helps to prevent overwhelm, which can help to give clarity.
Writing things down can also turn into a brain-storming session and result in new ideas which can give more focus and clarity.

Exercise your brain by doing puzzles or writing in a different style to normal.  Anything that makes your brain work differently can help it to focus more.

It’s often easier to get more focus by sharing ideas, by asking for support and making sure someone is there to push or nudge you along.

Have a goal.  Because remember that with no end goal, we don’t know what we’re working towards and more importantly, we can’t measure our success either.  And that makes it difficult to get more focus…

It’s all about #TheZenZing 🙂

Easter Craft ~ How to make an easter egg box

Easter Craft ~ How To Make A Decorate Easter Egg Box

Easter Craft ~ how to make an Easter egg box

We love crafts in our house and Easter always brings out our creativity!

So when our 7 year old’s school ran a competition for the best decorated Easter egg, you can imagine the making and creating that went on…

…and here’s how she made it.  (I say ‘she’ because apart from boiling the eggs, she pretty much did it all by herself!)

Easter Craft ~ How To Make A Decorate Easter Egg Box

You will need:

A standard empty box

Hard-boiled eggs (it depends how many you’d like to decorate!)

Glue ~ pritt-stick type glue is better than gloopy glue because of handling the egg while decorating it… unless you want to look like a decorated easter egg yourself!

Felt-tips and/or paint ~ depending on whether you like really messy or not!

Paper for drawing pictures to cut out and stick on the eggs

Crafty things ~ anything crafty that you’ve got knocking around

~

Get a standard egg box

Easter Craft ~ How To Make A Decorate Easter Egg Box Step 1

Then get the glue

Easter Craft ~ How To make A Decorated Easter Egg Box Step 2

And some green ‘grass’ for paper

Easter Craft ~ How To Make A Decorated Easter Egg Box Step 3

Stick the ‘grass’ anywhere on the outside of the box (the corners work well)

Easter Craft ~ How To Make A Decorated Easter Egg Box Step 5

Pour some glue inside the egg box and stick some yellow ‘nest’ paper inside

Easter Craft ~ How To Make A Decorated Easter Egg Box Result

And there’s your Easter egg box!  (our daughter won a prize for hers!)

What do you like to make for Easter crafts?  I’d love to know!  Tell me by commenting below and then tweet me @AllSortsHere.

Thanks 🙂

Depression CAN be beaten ~ my first steps

Depression Can Be Beaten - My First Steps. I Tell You How I Took The First Small steps To Overcome the Depression By Self-help

 Depression CAN be beaten…

Around 10 years ago, a sequence of events in my life resulted in me becoming anxious and it wasn’t too long before I felt unable to cope.  A relationship breakdown, 2 bereavements in quick succession and finally, work was the final straw.  My wonderful doctor listened patiently and diagnosed me with depression.

After a week off work, I was referred to an occupational counsellor.  I had a chat on the Friday and by the following Monday I had ‘jumped’ the NHS waiting list and was talking to a counsellor.  I say ‘jumped’ because the counsellor that I saw was likely the very same one that you would see from a doctor’s waiting list.

Now I’ve never been one to criticise the NHS.  Quite the opposite.  I’ve got nothing but praise for them.  They saw me through a complicated pregnancy and have given my family and friends excellent service, against the odds of low funding and low staffing.

So yes, I will defend the NHS to the hilt but the waiting lists were (and possibly still are) very long for people diagnosed with depression.  ‘Fortunately’, the depression I had was very mild.  If I’d had it more severe, I would’ve been waiting much, much longer to be seen.  And this is dangerous.

Depression Can Be Beaten - My First Steps. I Tell You How I Took The First Small steps To Overcome the Depression By Self-help

Finding the right help

Because once depression gets its claws in and takes hold, it’s hard to bring yourself out.  Very hard.

My doctor was wonderful, advised me to book double slots because he wanted to help… properly.

He told me right from the start that he’d prefer not to give me medication and I will be forever grateful for that.  I didn’t want drugs either but was in such a fog that I’d probably have taken them.

I know there’s a place for them but in my situation, they weren’t the answer.  There are other ways to dig yourself out of the ‘black hole’.

I would never claim that it’s easy to climb out, or even that it’s easy not to slip back in.

Because once you’ve experienced depression, it’s my opinion that you never fully recover.

But you can be aware of your triggers and deal with them swiftly to stop that spiral…

No-one’s immune

What’s important to remember about mental health is that anyone of any age can experience it, at any time.  Put simply – no one, but no one is immune.

And that includes children.  Emily Palmer has produced a great little book called ‘Scrambled Heads’ aimed at guiding children through mental health.  You can read the review of ‘Scrambled Heads’ here.

When I was going through it and recovering, I used a great book that for me at the time was indispensable – 50 Things You Can Do Today To Beat Depression
by Paul Vincent.   There will be a review coming soon.

My point is

My point is that there’s help out there.  Help that gives your brain a long-term chance, rather than a cheap plaster that keeps coming off.

If I may add that if you’re reading and you’re on medication for depression, and if it works for you – well that’s great for you.

However, my personal experience has taught me that a natural, self-help approach works best (or at least it did for me).  I will cover these methods in my series ‘Depression CAN be beaten…’ – subscribe so that you don’t miss it… use the opt-in form below or in the sidebar.

 

How do you deal with depression?  Or how do you help someone you know to deal with depression?  I’d love to hear from you.  Comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere

Time for a dose of happiness in #HighlightsofHappy blog linky #36 ~ because life’s for the good stuff

Time For A Dose Of Happiness In Highlights Of Happy Blog Linky 36 Amazing Assembly Performance
It's time for a dose of happiness in #HighlightsofHappy 35 blog linky because life's for the good stuff. We look back on the week with gratitude

Your weekly dose of happiness…

Let’s spread the happiness!

It’s a common phrase isn’t it?…

“Bad things come in 3’s”

or words similar to that!

So, let’s flip it because everyone deserves a little happiness … (you know how I love to spread happiness and turn a negative into a positive with positive thinking !)

Let’s spread that happiness and find 3 things to be grateful for (or even more… well, why not?!)

Time For A Dose Of Happiness In Highlights Of Happy Blog Linky 36 Amazing Assembly Performance

In my weekly feature, I look back over my gratitude journal because that’s the great thing about gratitude and using my gratitude journal – it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂  And that’s what I do here, in my weekly feature, I look back and on my #HighlightsofHappy.

I round it off with one word that sums up my happy…  why not do the same?

If you’re a blogger, why not share your happy post from the last week or so in the linky below?

If you’re on instagram, why not tag your happy snap #HighlightsofHappy and link up your pic in the linky below?

If you’re on twitter, why not tweet your happy with #HighlightsofHappy ?

If you’re all 3, why not do all 3??  The linky is below. (To link your insta happy snap, simply click on your insta pic, copy the url and paste into the linky tool!)

(If you join in with my #HighlightsofHappy community on instagram, I post up my favourite snaps every Monday on instagram.)b

…so what’s been making ME happy?

Well it’s been an amazing week, truly it has…

After a hospital appointment, I was discharged which, believe me, was an immense relief!  A dear friend is not in such a good position and that’s really made me stop and be in the moment.  I make no apologies for how corny that might sound.  Because I’ve savoured every single good feeling I’ve had and hope to remain in this ‘in the moment’ mindset. Savour the good times people 🙂

The after school cheerleading club is doing a little performance for the parents and carers.  Our daughter came out of the club this week clutching a slip of paper with details and I’m SO looking forward to it!

I went to see our girl’s class assembly and was so very proud of her doing a little solo introduction.  She had been practicing her lines but she didn’t make it clear to me that she was actually introducing the class topics at the start of the assembly.  Her voice carried very well and she remembered the words of the little intro. 🙂

We saw my grandparents, our daughter told them all about what she’s been doing at school, about her excitement for her up-coming sleepover and well everything in between!

For playing the recorder with my daughter.  Yes, it came with a silent apology to the neighbours (!) and a *slight* cringe as she didn’t quite have her fingers fully over the holes at times… but that’s all a part of the fun hey!

I had time to myself for pretty much a whole afternoon while hubby and our girl went on a little shopping adventure.  I curled up on the sofa in the sunshine like a cat and stayed there for a very long time 🙂

~

So that’s my happy and my happy word is ‘amazing’ because looking over my gratitude journal, it’s literally full on every page.  That tells me that a whole load of happy has been going on.  And my mood and mindset totally reflects that.  I make no apologies for being happy and I never will 🙂

How about you?  I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy

Go on, share your happy with me!

Thanks 🙂

Positive Thinking ~ Choose to be optimistic, it feels better…

Positive Thinking Choose To Be Optimistic For Your Wellbeing And Mental health

Positive Thinking ~ Choose to be optimistic; it feels better

Positive Thinking Choose To Be Optimistic For Your Wellbeing And Mental health

This blog is all about turning any negative into a positive.

And this linky is all about positive thinking – each month I focus on an inspirational, motivational, positive quote.

This month, remember to…

Choose to be optimistic ~ it feels better

We all benefit from a little bit of optimism… or a whole lot of optimism! There’s no limits to how much you can have.  And however much optimism you choose to have in your life, don’t let anyone take the positive outlook away from you.

You know why?

Because it does feel better!

I’d love to hear from you. Tweet me @AllSortsHere using the hashtag #PositiveThinking.

Let’s create a virtual wave of positivity!

#PositiveThinking is my monthly blog linky.

Link up any blog post with a positive and happy theme (and it’d be great if you could copy my badge below into your post).  Perhaps your positive thought could be connected to a goal you have in mind, something funny you’ve heard or something funny you’ve seen.  If it’s got a PositiveThinking theme, it works for this linky.  Old or new posts, it doesn’t matter – link up as many as you like.  

The linky door is always open.

~

Also join me on twitter.  Tweet anything positive and/or promote your positive blogpost (the one you link up!) with #PositiveThinking and include a direct tweet to me @AllSortsHere… I’ll share by retweeting.

Let’s get the positive vibrations going good and strong 🙂

And while you’re here, last month A Positive Parent linked up to PositiveThinking.  Here’s their link if you missed it…

The Cycle of Happiness #IfShesHappyImHappy

The Cycle of Happiness #IfShesHappyImHappy . It's About Making You And Your Child Happy

The Cycle of Happiness #IfShesHappyImHappy

Today, I’m introducing a regular feature #IfShesHappyImHappy.  It’s all about the cycle of happiness – you being happy, making your child happy and it coming full circle to make you happy again!

There are 2 schools of thought here, as far as I can see.

1… as a parent, you can only be happy if your child/ren is/are happy

2… as a parent, you need to be happy first before they can be happy

I fit into both of these schools, which is why I said above that it’s about the ‘cycle’ of happiness, the big jigsaw, the ‘happy circle’ (as cheesey as that sounds!)

The Cycle of Happiness #IfShesHappyImHappy . It's About Making You And Your Child Happy

It’s a 2-way street

We all know that our children (especially young children) can really feel our emotions – good or bad.  No matter how hard we try to hide our anxiety, we still show it through our feelings.

Children can be sensitive little beans and pick up on these feelings.  A classic example could be the first day or school – you drop them off into their new classroom, you’re all smiles etc and when you’re out of the school gates, the floodgates open (usually yours, not theirs).  I’ve been there myself.

To my mind, or school of thought, it’s about empowering them, giving them the confidence to be happy.  And that’s where the cycle comes in.  Because we feel our childrens’ feelings just as much as they feel ours (arguably more at times!).  So we feel each other’s happiness or otherwise.

Here’s the point

So, here I am finally getting to the point of #IfShesHappyImHappy

I make no apology for saying that my daughter’s happiness and good mental health is the most important thing to me.  I’d do anything within my power to make her happy, as any parent would.  And I know that if she’s happy, I’m happy, and if I’m happy she’s happy.   There’s that cycle again!

I will be sharing posts on things that our daughter has said, done, made, given, shared that’s made her and me – us ‘happy’!  I do this anyway but I wanted to dig a little deeper and make a little feature of it.

Because #IfShesHappyImHappy

Safety at work tips and tricks

How To Lift Your Mood With The Right Lighting For More Positive Thinking
Days Out That Are Fun And Educational For The Family Rossall School

Safety at work tips and tricks

When I was asked by SHEilds NEBOSH training providers to talk about health and safety at work, I thought it was a brilliant idea – it’s all about keeping safe and happy in all areas of life isn’t it?

The average person spends alot of time at work, after all.  Going about your daily work, rushing around, sometimes on auto-pilot can mean that we get clumsy, miss spotting trip-hazards or we think someone will see the bag that you always put down next to your desk.

Watch out for the near-miss

I’ve known of ‘near misses’ when someone has almost tripped on a bag handle that has found its way into a walkway.  That bag might always be put there day in, day out and everyone knows it’s there… until  someone new comes along or someone’s carrying something and they can’t see it.
Safety At Work Tips And Tricks For Health And Safety Wellbeing

Never assume

Never assume that someone knows an object is there just because that’s where you always put it before you flick the kettle on for your morning cuppa!

Oh and don’t you just love your morning cuppa?!  Whether it’s a nice strong coffee or a, “tea, 2 sugars please!”

Why not pop it in a travel mug, with a secure lid?  It’ll keep it hot for longer and prevent the dreaded spillage all over the keyboard and electrics!  Since doing exactly that, I’m a convert to my ‘travel cup’ with secure lid and my one with a straw for my water and juice.  A little bit of liquid goes a long way.  Trust me, I know!

An accident waiting to happen?

And those computer leads under the desk?  Yeah they’ve been like that for ages.  They’ll be okay.  I know they’re there because when I stretch my legs out, I get tangled up!  But spare a thought for the person who doesn’t know those cables are there…  Quite a hazard, getting tangled up in electrical cables.

This all applies in any workspace, including if you work from home.  There are still all of these going on in the average home workspace.  And now it’s clear to see why it’s so important to #StaySafeatWork

Have you had a near-miss or an incident in your workplace that you’d like to share?  Let me know in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere 🙂

How I turned a complicated pregnancy into a positive campaign

How I Turned A Complicated Pregnancy Into A Positive Campaign HELLP Syndrome Pre-eclampsia

How I turned a complicated pregnancy into a positive campaign

First up, let’s get something out of the way, and then let’s get onto the positive.  When I see pregnancy announcements or perfect birth stories, I often make a conscious decision not to read.  If it’s a blog post linked up in the same linky, I may have a skim read and then I often ‘just’ share the post.

It’s because I struggle to read ‘perfect’ pregnancy and perfect birth stories.  The reason being that I had a Complicated Pregnancy
which involved a low placenta and resulted in pre-eclampsia, an emergency c-section and HELLP syndrome (which saw me in intensive care for a week).

I realise that people go through far more than that in pregnancy and I’ll always be grateful for having a healthy daughter.

Everything’s relative

I understand that people can’t wait to share their news and they have every right to (just like I have every right to choose not to read something that is likely to upset and frustrate me.).

What I really struggle to understand is why women choose to have a home birth.  There, I’ve said it.

Things can go wrong very quickly during labour.  Why risk not having the top consultants and surgeons literally scrubbed up in a theatre for you and your baby?

I’m getting a little ranty, I know.

And that’s not really my style.

Yet it seems that I’m harbouring frustration towards home births.  Some may say it’s  jealousy.  Well, I say not – I never wanted a home birth.  Just a healthy baby.  And I was happy to have a section, more than happy to be ‘scheduled in’!

In an age where you have the best medical staff and equipment that a developed country can offer, why be so naive to think that everything will carry on hunky dory?

The serene dream

Yes, it’s lovely to have that serene dream of a home birth, of course it is.

but let’s get real here.

This is pregnancy.

Things can and do go very wrong.  A sad fact.

Although a *little* ranty, this post actually serves to illustrate that I’m grateful for being healthy, for being here with my little family, for having a healthy daughter… when things could have been so very different.  And undoubtedly would have been if I’d been insistent on having a home birth or at least sticking to any other birth plan.

How I Turned A Complicated Pregnancy Into A Positive Campaign HELLP Syndrome Pre-eclampsia

When things had settled into newborn life, I started to post a few updates on facebook about how we were both very lucky to be here.  And one night, a good friend said, “wow, you should turn this into a book.”

So I did.  An ebook to be precise.  An ebook that I published to ‘hellp’ raise awareness of HELLP syndrome.  Because it’s more common than you think, yet the healthcare professionals often don’t treat it with the urgency that it needs or just plain don’t recognise it for what it is in the first place.  Then I decided that as well my letter to the NHS, another way to giving something back when I got so much care, would be to give half of the proceeds to the charity Action on Pre-eclampsia (APEC).

And that’s what this post is for

 

It’s not for a rant so much as to tell you how I turned my complicated pregnancy into a positive campaign.  (I didn’t mean to rant quite so much by the way, but it did feel good…)

If I’ve caused anyone an offence on their past, present or future birth plan that may include a home birth, that wasn’t my intention.  This is my little corner of the internet and I wanted to show how I turned a trauma into a positive project.

Thanks for reading and I’ve hope I’ve raised some awareness.

Have you turned an unpleasant experience into something positive?  (pregnancy-related or otherwise.)  I’d love to hear from you!  Comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere
