I HAVE LEARNT…

Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections

When I received this message on my mobile my fingers started itching to write, some people often tell me that blogging means one should write frequently but for me it’s the pleasure of writing whenever I feel like, which stimulates me and the thought can come at the weirdest of  times. Well today it came when I had to stand in a line to make my payment at the shopping mall counter. I was observing the people around me and everyone was frowning and upset with the sales man for the delay and it seemed as if everyone had the most urgent work to do.. No one was willing to understand the poor sales guy who probably was new in his job and trying to get a hang of the computer. With so many people screaming at him he was taking more time and I could see his nervous fingers punching at the keys. I was wishing that people, instead of getting so restless could give him a smile and a nice thank you but we don’t believe in thanking.

Its been days since I wrote… always getting entangled with work… of course for me work is pleasure but I miss my writings… miss reflecting on each day… life is just going on and each day is an adventure..at least that’s the way I like looking at it. continue reading »

‘How can You do it , taking your child for a movie , when there is a science exam the next day?’ This was the question asked to me by a parent during my son’s board exams ..Well, I as a mother have always felt that the children need to relax and enjoy during exams. It’s not the number of hours put in that makes a difference in the scores but the quality of hours put in. Once again the board exams are around the corner and one can see the stress atmosphere all around.

I strongly feel the most essential thing needed is to teach Stress Management.

Right from the early age, a child falls prey to the pressures and expectations by the outside world. As he grows old, the expectations amplify and the level of pressure on a growing child increases. A stage comes where the stress becomes a crucial part of life and dealing with the mounting stress becomes almost impossible. This leads to several mental, physical and emotional problems.

Examination stress has become a favourite subject of everyday conversation. It is not unusual to hear friends, family members and even children talking about the difficulties faced in managing stress. Stress plays havoc with exam productivity and has become a concern for parents. But many of us need to realize that stress is a very natural and an important part of life. Without stress there would be no life at all! continue reading »
