Mindfulness at the workplace

Image
The weeks back at the office after CNY was nothing but stressful. Hands up those who feel the way I do right now!  I could really use some relaxing yoga session or the likes.  Of course, stress is all part and parcel of work isn't it? However, have you ever sometimes reflected on your day and realised how you handled a particular situation could be the cause of your stress? Maybe it's a case of speaking too much too soon? Maybe it is all relative to other events in happening in your life.

I constantly struggle to find that balance and it leads to what I call a world wide phenomena of the "working mothers' guilt".

Wordless Wednesday: Learning our ABCs

Image
One of the things I wanted to get done this year is to spend time crafting with J. I must admin, other than making customised jewelry, I am not your typical mummy with a flair for arts and craft.  So, I had do quite some research before involving J.  Then I decided, crafting can be a way for the child to learn, and so we started J's home-crafting with alphabets.

My thoughts on the Glenn Doman Learning Method

Image
When I was invited to attend a baby learning seminar about the Glenn Doman Learning Method , I wasn't prepared to feel what I did after that. There were fleeting thoughts in that 3 hours for me to leave my job to be at home with J. I also had my heart swell with pride despite not having been the most conscientious mum in helping my son to learn. Yet the time he spent in school has helped him reach all his developmental and learning milestones.
