If you apply what is on this 9 minute CD, your life will change for the better in ways you cannot even imagine.
From my chiropractor, Dr. Paige Thibodeau, DC
- If children and adults in your home share the same computer workstation, make certain that the workstation can be modified for each child’s use.
- Position the computer monitor so the top of the screen is at or below the child’s eye level. This can be accomplished by taking the computer off its base or stand, or having the child sit on firm pillows or phone books to reach the desired height.
- Make sure the chair at the workstation fits the child correctly. An ergonomic back cushion, pillow or a rolled-up towel can be placed in the small of the child’s back for added back support. There should be two inches between the front edge of the seat and the back of the knees. The chair should have arm supports so that elbows are resting within a 70- to 135-degree angle to the computer keyboard.
- Wrists should be held in a neutral position while typing – not angled up or down. The mousing surface should be close to the keyboard so your child doesn’t have to reach or hold the arm away from the body.
- The child’s knees should be positioned at an approximate 90- to 120-degree angle. To accomplish this angle, feet can be placed on a foot rest, box, stool or similar object.
- Reduce eyestrain by making sure there is adequate lighting and that there is no glare on the monitor screen. Use an antiglare screen if necessary.
- Limit your child’s time at the computer and make sure he or she takes periodic stretch breaks during computing time. Stretches can include: clenching hands into fists and moving them in 10 circles inward and 10 circles outward; placing hands in a praying position and squeezing them together for 10 seconds and then pointing them downward and squeezing them together for 10 seconds; spreading fingers apart and then closing them one by one; standing and wrapping arms around the body and turning all the way to the left and then all the way to the right.
- Your child’s muscles need adequate hydration to work properly and avoid injury. Encourage your child to drink four 8-ounce glasses of water a day. Carbonated beverages, juices and other sweet drinks are not a substitute.
- Urge your child’s school or PTA officials to provide education on correct computer ergonomics and to install ergonomically correct workstations.
When we don’t agree with something a person does, says or is, it does NOT give us the excuse to be MEAN to them! Are we instructed to love unconditionally or not?
I love people, but I don’t always agree with them. If we just can’t deal with them, politely smile (with love in your heart and eyes) and walk away. That’s easy! No need to say mean, hateful, disrespectful words and NO need to tell someone ELSE mean things about that person!
What the world needs now is LOVE…unconditional, non-judgmental LOVE! ♥
And if you disagree with me… I still love you.
“For everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does them, will become like a prudent man who built his house upon the rock; and the rain came down and the rivers came up and the winds blew and they beat upon that house but it did not fall, for it has been founded upon the rock.
And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand: and the rain came down and the rivers came up, and the winds blew and they beat upon that house, and it fell and its fall was great.”
The words of Yeshua in Matthew 7:24-27
by Mel Robbins from Success Magazine
“Each of your actions or, in this case, inactions, carries significance in someone else’s day.
You impact other people. It’s easy to forget to call or you run late or simply not show up at all. I’ve certainly been guilty at times. Right now, people are waiting on you. When you change your mind, reverse course or drag your feet on a decision, it impacts other people. Procrastinating or bailing not only creates havoc for you, but for others, too. And your silence sends a loud message: This is not important.”
This is good advice. If your plans change or something comes up…call or text the people who will be affected. It’s very easy and it says, “I care about you.”
“‘God has not given us the spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind.’
God has not given us the spirit of fear!
I’m telling you, one of the greatest tactics of the enemy is to intimidate you and to make you fearful! ’Well, I don’t know if I can do it. I don’t know if I can succeed. I don’t know how I’ll do it.’
Fear has torment. But perfect love casts out fear. One of the greatest revelations you need is, He’s my Father, I’m His child and what kind of a father would have the love that He has and put me in a position to be destroyed or not to make it?!
‘If God be for us, who can be against us? For greater is He who is in you than he that is in the world.’”
~Mark Morgan, July 1998
A young lady confidently walked around the room while explaining stress management to an audience with a raised glass of water. Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, ‘half empty or half full?’…
She fooled them all …. “How heavy is this glass of water?” she inquired with a smile.
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. To 20 oz.
She replied , “The absolute weight doesn’t matter.
It depends on how long I hold it.”
“If I hold it for a minute, that’s not a problem.”
“If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my right arm.”
“If I hold it for a day, you’ll have to call an ambulance.”
“In each case it’s the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “and that’s the way it is with stress. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won’t be able to carry on. As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we’re refreshed, we can carry on with the burden – holding stress longer and better each time practiced. So , as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night…… Pick them up tomorrow.”
