Power of a book – Towards A Better Life

The power of a book lies in its ability to make you think beyond the surface and elevate you from ‘great to greater.’ The right book can open your mind to new ideas and motive you to live a better life.

A book is a medium to change lives for the better through the transmission of knowledge, wisdom, or ideas. This is the written word’s power, but many people underestimate the power of a book.

Unfortunately, I must inform you that one of the secrets of self-development is that whatever solution to a problem you seek is in a book somewhere that you have been unwilling to locate and read!A book, particularly a nonfiction book, exists to extract a single, contained collection of wisdom or ideas from the author’s head and share them with readers.

Simply described, a book is a medium for the transmission of knowledge, wisdom, or ideas.
It’s all in a book, which can fit in the palm of your hand or in your electronic library.

The power of a book enables it to open your mind to new ideas, motivate you to create something new, or cause you to become a winner in some aspect of your life, just like the author.

You can collaborate with an author to alter your life by using their keys to success through a book. The key is to understand the deep meaning behind the words in a book.

Here’s why you need self-education to survive in today’s world

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.

That’s a quote by Emmanuel James “Jim” Rohn , who was an American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker.

If you’re lucky, the formal education you receive in school can only provide you with a job that allows you to survive. However, the things you acquire on your own through self-education can help you accumulate money. Self-education can be used to supplement the formal education you received in school. Let us look at it at the individual level while the government and social organisations explore ways to address the widespread unemployment.

As unemployment rates have skyrocketed for the youth, especially after  the pandemic, there is one clear conclusion that can be drawn. The conclusion is that you need to self-educate yourself with new skills needed to get work in today’s world because formal schooling is failing to teach them.

What are your options if formal schooling fails to provide you with a living? I am confident that the only alternative choice will get you out of this situation is to look for the talents on your own. You should gain practical skills in addition to the knowledge you acquired in school. Entrepreneurship is a term for this form of self-education.

Making money is not something that is taught in school.

There isn’t a school where you can learn how to make money. Yes, if you are fortunate enough to land a job in government or a non-profit organisation, you can live comfortably for years on the monthly pay you would receive. However, it will never provide you with a wealth. It is never going to make you wealthy.

You must acquire practical knowledge, and learn to earn money, for which self-education is vital. It will help you earn enough money to survive in today’s world, even if you don’t make a fortune.

What to do when online classes affect your child’s health – Towards A Better Life

Source: What to do when online classes affect your child’s health – Towards A Better Life

 

There was a time when my wife, who loves our son too much like every mother does, wanted to open up a school at home for our child. That dream turned true after the Covid-19 pandemic hit the world. But, the pandemic has adversely affected almost every sphere of our lives, including education. Children today are being taught their curriculum online.

But, is it good for the child? The answer is no it is not

In fact, studying from home has forced every child to miss school, which is still he most crucial part of their lives, . Teachers teaching in a classroom full of kids is a thing of the past. Every child is stuck with the new reality of ‘online classes.’ However, children’s physical and mental health are suffering as their screen usage increases.

Excessive screen time, according to Dr. Sudha. B, Senior Consultant Neonatologist Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, might cause the following difficulties in your child: Dry eyes as a result of digital eye strain; Headache; Neck ache; Disruptions in sleep; A shorter attention span; Behavioral changes such as impatience, refusals, and excessive arguing; and Impaired socialisation abilities.

Kerala State Education Minister V. Sivankutty also addressed the state Assembly on Monday that online lessons are harming schoolchildren’s health.

Sivankutty stated, citing the findings of a survey conducted by the State Council of Education Research and Training, that 36% of students experience headaches and neck pain, while 28% have eye trouble. He went on to say that parents should be made aware of the dangers of using digital devices.

Dr. Sudha suggested a couple of tips for parents to help children cope up with screen time stress.

Don’t let screens disrupt your children’s sleep: When youngsters use devices close to bedtime, blue light can disrupt sleep patterns and circadian rhythms. Turn off and remove screens from bedrooms at least one hour before bedtime.

Never overlook digital eye strain: Digital eye strain symptoms include dry eyes, itching, and a burning sensation in the eyes. Severe eye strain can result in headaches as well as refractive problems such as myopia and astigmatism. When you give your eyes a break, they will improve. Allow your youngster to follow the 20-20-20 rule, which allows his or her eyes to rest intermittently:Make it a point for your child to take a 20-second break every 20 minutes and stare at something 20 feet away.

Control the changes in behaviour: Children are becoming irritable as a result of excessive screen time and less interaction with family and friends. Poor attention span, not listening when talked to, constant fighting, and throwing age-inappropriate tantrums are just a few of the signs. To avoid this, parents should engage in fascinating and beneficial interactions with their children that spark their curiosity. Encourage your child to participate in extracurricular activities such as athletics, music, and art.

Handling screen time – Don’t ever use screens as pacifiers, to avoid tantrums of the child. Begin digital disciplining for the entire family with a tiny step, such as not eating while staring at phones or televisions. Weekend noneducational screen time should be limited. Attempt to have screen-free weekends. Technology isn’t without its benefits, but every parent should learn the art of digital disciplining.

Be The Change!

Let me tell you a story today.

Once upon a time, there was a little boy who loved eating sugar.  He would chew on his sugar granules throughout the day. His mother was worried that this excessive gorging on sugar would take a toll on his  health. She tried everything from gently coaxing him out of this habit to scaring him to hiding the containers, but to no avail. Finally, she decided to take him to his idol, Mahatma Gandhi, so that the great man could talk some sense to her child.

So the next day, she started on the journey with her son. When she finally reached his Ashram, she saw that hundreds of people were waiting to meet the great man. When finally their turn came, the mother explained to  Gandhi the whole situation, and requested him to talk to her son. Gandhi smiled at her and said, “Please come back in 2 weeks time and I shall speak with your son”. She was confused, but she left without any protest.

Two weeks passed, she went back to the Ashram with her son and this time, Gandhi immediately spoke to her son. Curious, she asked Gandhi why he hadn’t spoken to her son the last time they had come. Gandhi smiled and said, “Well, two weeks ago, I too was eating too much of sugar”. He couldn’t preach what he didn’t practice.

It’s easy to complain about the world and other people, but if you cannot implement the changes in your own life, then you have no right to complain. Don’t be a hypocrite!

We do not have control over others. We cannot change others, only ourselves. If you want to see some change in the world, you must start with yourself. Every significant change that has ever happened in this world has been the result of changes which began at individual level. Revolutions have happened because one person had the courage to stand up for what they believed in  and didn’t wait for others to take action. Now, you don’t have to pick up your megaphone and yell for a revolution if that’s not something you want to do. Just be an embodiment of what you believe in and you might be able to move others with your belief too.

But in order for things to change, you have to change. Don’t just complain how this world sucks. Be the Change!

English Vocabulary Expansion!

Hello Friends 🙂 You all know importance of a good vocabulary as writers. I come from a country where English is the second language. I started learning English quite late as my courses in school were taught mostly in my mother tongue Hindi. When I realized importance of a sound vocabulary–I started learning new words. […]

English Vocabulary Expansion!

This is one of my earliest posts here which resembles an introduction to Weekly Features. It has a link to vocabulary.com . Thankfully, i am still playing on that site regularly. I entered its ‘Hall of Fame’ once in 2017 and stayed there for about an year. I was a top monthly scorer for three months in a row in 2017: an achievement i am proud of. Do you have any such sites to recommend? Please leave a comment if you do.

Space Logic!

1. I used to be very active, first on Madphilosophers.com and then on The Couch Forum. I always think about the space.

2. All or a lot of my content created with the ID @thinkerv0 was deleted. I really don’t know if more content by some other people was deleted as well.

3. After about four and half years of its existence only 38% of its space has been used. The rules regarding not posting pictures or multimedia were because we always have limited space. Yet: if we have some really interested members we can look for extension of space once we reach 100% usage: which doesn’t seem like happening for many years at current rate. Therefore: there’s no limit on number posts or images or even multimedia posting as far as I am concerned. We obviously expect honesty, integrity and harmlessness from each other in our content.

4. All of our activity combined on this forum is a fraction of web activity in the world. A tiny fraction. The logic that people need to keep up if we frequently discuss here or elsewhere is futile. On such forums: you always have at least one listener: admin. On your blogs: they might just be liking your posts without reading: well, not all of them, off course. Here, since admins act as hosts and care about what is said on forum as it has to maintain its reputation, decorum and respectability : they remain alert and vigilante; they read each and every word you write. This becomes a very positive loop for participating members and works much better for your personal blogs as well.

5. Post Script: I have made 200 posts here on Blogger’s World. Thankyou everyone. Especially: Pam, Sandeept, Oneta, Colettes, Vicki and recently active members! I also received a notification about number of likes here on a single day which was a new record being in excess of 110. It’s all very important. Thanks for your time, energy and support. It is really valuable.
