Be a Kid Again

There are so many things you can do to celebrate the day. You can do things you remember doing as a kid, or do things you wanted to do when you were younger, but never took the time or got the chance to do. Here are some ideas:
  • Eat ice cream for a meal. It happens to be National Ice Cream Sundae Day today as well, so it’s perfect! You might as well be like a kid and chase down an ice cream truck to get your ice cream.
  • There are many other foods to eat that can make you be like a kid again. Have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a grilled cheese sandwich, macaroni and cheese, fruits snacks, or cotton candy.
  • Take yourself to a kid’s themed restaurant such as Chuck E. Cheese’s. It was founded by the same person who founded Atari, as a way to expand video arcades to kids. You could spend the rest of your day playing video games anyway, it happens to be Video Game Day as well.
  • As much fun as it would be to jump in a big pile of leaves after raking, it’s summer so that’s probably not an option. Instead, find something to do with water outside to cool off. Run through a sprinkler, go swimming and do a cannonball, go on a Slip N Slide, or have a Super Soaker or water balloon fight.
  • Speaking of balloons, you can be like a kid by inhaling some helium and talking in a weird voice.
  • Watch movies or TV shows all day, especially ones you loved as a kid. A good one to watch may be Home Alone.
  • Color or draw.
  • Make faces at strangers.
  • Get your friends together and have foot races. Or you could get to your destinations for the day by skipping, or riding a scooter or skateboard. Don’t forget to pet every dog you see while you are on your way.
  • Sing and dance for no reason.
  • Blow bubbles or go bumper bowling.
  • Wear wacky clothing and jump rope.
  • Play truth or dare.
  • Whenever you you are given an answer, ask “Why?”
  • One of the best things to do may be to actually hang out with a kid all day and copy what they do.
If you act like Royal Tenenbaum you are probably on the right track to being like a kid.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
