Tips On How To Help A Child Who Is A Cyber-bully

“Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.”

Mentioned below are a few tips for parents on how to deal with a child who engages in cyber-bullying:

Teach your child about the impact of cyber-bullying: Seek advice from a professional such as a business keynote speaker in that area as children mostly can’t really grasp the extent of the damage that bullying causes. It is your responsibility to educate them about the affects cyber-bullying can have on others. Try cultivating empathy in your child by giving them a glimpse of what the victims of bullying actually go through. Moreover, warn them about the legal ramifications of cyber-bullying so that they may refrain from doing it again.

Help your child find proper ways to deal with stress: Cyber-bullying can be a channel of release for some kids. Talk to a business keynote speaker as he/she can assist you with tools that can help to dispel their anxiety, stress, fears and frustrations. In order for them to stop resorting to bullying for release, you need to teach your children to cope with their emotions through decent and healthy ways. For instance, get them in the habit of regularly engaging in physical activity or help them be more social etc.

Decrease their access to technology: Establish some fixed timing in which your child is allowed to use the phone or use the computer. Plus make it known that their activities on both will be monitored and that if you end up finding out anything suspicious, they will be punished accordingly!

Good Managers Increase Productivity in the Workplace

The stretch zone of stress is the ideal zone for an employee to be in to maximize productivity in the workplace

The stretch zone of stress is the ideal zone for an employee to be in to maximize productivity in the workplace.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

If productivity in the workplace is to be maintained, employees need to operate at a certain level. Whenever we are faced with a situation that we have to cope with, whether that be at work or otherwise, we will fall into one of three stress zones; these are the comfort zone, stretch zone or panic zone. It is vitally important that your managers are able to determine which zone your employees have entered so that they can act accordingly.

Comfort Zone

If a person is within their comfort zone, they will feel very relaxed and stable. Usually, this is when the employee is doing a very routine job that they are no longer challenged by. Whilst your employees will be happiest in this state, they are less likely to be innovative or push themselves, which may stifle their productivity and, so, the development of your company.

Stretch Zone

This is the ideal zone for an employee to be in. They still feel comfortable, but are no longer completely at ease. The job that they are doing is challenging them, forcing them to come up with new ideas and solutions to problems. This is where a person will be in their most productive state and during this time, they will contribute the most productivity in the workplace. Whilst it is likely to tire your employee out if they remain in this zone for too long, you want to ensure that they are within this stress level throughout most of the day.

Panic Zone

This is where management is key. It is very easy for a person to stray from the stretch zone into the panic zone, but the consequences of doing so may be catastrophic. An employee in the panic zone is likely to be overstretched and unable to cope with the demands of work. Their confidence will decrease and their comfort zone will shrink. This can be very damaging to your business.

A good man manager will ensure that your employees spend as long as possible in the stretch zone, where they have just the right amount of stress to ensure that their level of productivity in the workplace remains high.

Convention Speakers Practice the Right Kind of Stress

Adrenaline from healthy sources can be a good kind of stress.

Adrenaline from healthy sources can be a good kind of stress.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

To many ears, the word “stress” has negative connotations. It conjures to mind images of not feeling well, being burned out and wanting a break. However, convention speakers like Andy Core know that stress can also be good.

  • Getting a rush from exhilarating activities like test-driving a race car, bungee jumping or even something as simple as ordering an exotic dish at a foreign restaurant makes those butterflies in your stomach good ones. Moreover, the knowledge that you overcame a hurdle will only add to your confidence.
  • When you carry a heavy workload, as opposed to a workload that drags you down, it is a good way of keeping yourself busy. The busier someone is, the less likely they are to make mountains out of molehills.
  • The release of hormones in your body is good in small doses. They can make you extra alert to your surroundings, enabling convention speakers to take in more information and make more informed decisions.

Not all stress has to be of the negative variety, and it takes stress in your life to make you realize the good parts. However, like all good convention speakers recommend, the key is to minimize them and use stressors for their key qualities instead of letting them overtake you.

Tips To Combat Declination Of Cognitive Functioning

By staying active you can improve your cognitive functioning.

By staying active you can improve
your cognitive functioning.

The following are a compilation of a few pointers that can help to fight off cognitive decline:

Be active: In order to boost cognitive functioning you need to engage yourself in physical activity as often as you can. Working out boosts your brain health and promotes the development of new brain cells which in turn improve cognitive functioning. Furthermore, staying active also helps to alleviate stress and depression which consequently leads to a healthier brain.

Learn to manage stress levels.  Chronic and excessive stress produces the hormone cortisol which has been shown to damage the brain and can eventually lead to memory associated conditions such as dementia and amnesia. So when you are stressed it is normal to suffer from memory lapse and have difficulty concentrating on things or learning new things.

Be mindful about what you eat. Enjoy all the healthy, nutritious foods that nature has to offer starting from fruits and vegetables. Additionally, supplement your diet with green tea as it is a rich source of antioxidants which keep your brain cells from dying. Apart from that, add in foods that are good sources of omega-3 fats for instance salmon, fish oil, tuna, trout, walnuts, and flaxseed. Though keep in mind to never overeat on any of these foods as excess calories can cause cognitive impairment and memory loss.
