Talking to Children....
Would you like to help your children with their questions about all of the recent events? Here is some information from On Our Sleeves.
1. Take time to talk. Take time to learn about the recent events. Take time to listen, aware of their concerns. Then be empathetic, this is a way of walking beside them.
2. Let them know that you will be available to talk some more.
3. Encourage them to share their feelings. Be careful when you are feeling horrified or extremely upset. Tell them that your concerned or worried.

)Life has been pretty bumpy lately for many people.
Here is some information about the city of Tiomso, Norway. These people live 200 miles above the arctic circle. From November to January the sun does not come above the horizon.
I have a hard time in the winter with the shorter days and being inside. This can relate to a condition called SAD (seasonal affect disorder), I have never been diagnosed with the condition. But it can be caused by lower serotonin levels that are created in the winter months.
A study from the University of Tiomso found that the people that live in this area have very little problems with the lack of sun. (I need to visit these resilient people) The study found that there were only some sleep disturbances with this population.
So what is the secret? They have learned to have a mindset of seeing stressful events as challenges that create an opportunity to learn and adapt. This is the opposite of the move towards failure, embarrassment or illness.
This change in mindset is not do to a lack of facts. Yes, there are problems, but we can get under the covers with a nice cup of tea and feel good.
This type of mindset can change blood pressure and heart rate.
Look for ways to feel good. Try LENS neurofeedback, it will make you feel good.
