Don't be aggressive with your friends and family.
Some people dream of spending their summer vacations in sparkling water during the day and taking languorous walks on the beach in the evening. Others anticipate the sights and sounds of a city, with plenty of time to enjoy great restaurants and art. Whether they plan to go away or stay at home, most hope for freedom from the “daily grind” and time for pleasure and relaxation.
The following questions and tips can help you get a handle on vacation stress.
1. Are you being realistic in your planning? Confer with fellow travelers in advance about what each expects in terms of activities and rest time, then plan accordingly. Children aren’t the only ones who need to unwind between stimulating activities – adults need to do so as well.
It is Era where it is very easy to say “I love you”. There was a time when people wasted their whole life to say these three words but now a day you can hear these words in three minutes from a stranger to whom you have not met before. Well this is about the Reshma.
Ashraf and Reshma were in love. They met in college library and started to talk. Their talks soon changed in habit and then in love but the whole of event took 15 days. However most of the college love affair is short lived and so did this one. Ashraf was a good looking handsome but was not the expert in academics as he was in motor biking. Mid terms were near so Reshma approached Riaz for help to get score in exams. She was beautiful but that was not the issue for Riaz. She began to give more time to Riaz . Ashraf could not handle the tease of his friends and wanted to talk her. Reshma refused to talk. But Ashraf did not surrender. He again followed her. She told him to talk after exam. Reshma was too irritated with the happenings. Well exam passed and she scored well. Ashraf wanted to talk but she did not respond. Ashraf started to drink more and more. He started to smoke and go to clubs. She used to sit and talk more with Riaz. Soon she felt inclined towards Riaz. She presented him a gift.
A Mothers Love
We’ve all said things that people interpreted much differently than we thought they would. These seemingly benign comments lead to the awful feeling that only comes when you’ve planted your foot firmly into your mouth.
Verbal slip-ups often occur because we say things without knowledge of the subtle implications they carry. Understanding these implications requires social awareness—the ability to pick up on the emotions and experiences of other people.
TalentSmart has tested the emotional intelligence (EQ) of more than a million people and discovered that social awareness is a skill in which many of us are lacking.
We lack social awareness because we’re so focused on what we’re going to say next—and how what other people are saying affects us—that we completely lose sight of other people.
This is a problem because people are complicated. You can’t hope to understand someone until you focus all of your attention in his or her direction.
The beauty of social awareness is that a few simple adjustments to what you say can vastly improve your relationships with other people.
To that end, there are some phrases that emotionally intelligent people are careful to avoid in casual conversation. The following phrases are nine of the worst offenders. You should avoid them at all costs.
1. “You look tired.”
Tired people are incredibly unappealing—they have droopy eyes and messy hair, they have trouble concentrating, and they’re as grouchy as they come. Telling someone he looks tired implies all of the above and then some.
Instead say: “Is everything okay?” Most people ask if someone is tired because they’re intending to be helpful (they want to know if the other person is okay). Instead of assuming someone’s disposition, just ask. This way, he can open up and share. More importantly, he will see you as concerned instead of rude.
2. “Wow, you’ve lost a ton of weight!”
A Child's Perspective
Sometimes we hear a child speak and we might think 'how sweet, how innocent'. But have you also at any point thought 'how intuitive' or 'such maturity' for one so small?
A young child's mind is open, inquisitive and often intuitive if we take the time to notice. They haven't yet been molded, believing and fashioned into thinking as we older people do ........ but give them time and they mostly will. Oh of course they will navigate through the teenage rebellious stage. Often just bowing to peer pressure.
I'd like to share with you a story of a small but very wise young boy. It will touch your heart ...........
Without enough sleep I find myself struggling—moving through my day the way it feels to move through water. Everything is harder and slower and I feel stressed all day because I have to push myself to focus and be alert. Besides the headaches this gives me, I have much less energy, am less creative, and can only concentrate on one thing at a time instead of being able to handle several things at once. Moreover, when I am so low on energy, I tend to isolate myself and not interact as much with coworkers or to participate spontaneously in conversations. I'll usually resort to having coffee to try and boost my energy and alertness levels but the caffeine high only works for a short period. Afterward, I'll be even more tired because my body has been running on overdrive. It's not a good way to operate.
