As always, I’ve been spending a lot of times watching films in the cinema and at home. I shared a list of film rating a few months ago but I have watched rather a few films since then so I feel like I should share a second list. I might even end up making this a thing I do on my blog.
I wanted to mention quickly as well that I have created an Instagram Story Highlight for all the films that I watch at the cinema so you can check out my Instagram if you want to see that.
Productivity is not about doing more, it’s about effectiveness.
We have a limited amount of hours in a day. One they are gone, you can not get them back. The way that you spend your hours can be very important. That doesn’t mean that you need to stress out now though. It means that you should make a plan to get organised and productive so that you can spend your future hours more wisely.
You need to find a balance in life. Think of the yin and yang. You can only work so hard before you get burned out and you can only relax for too long before you feel sluggish. Finding balance in this is so important and it’s something that you will develop over time.
There’s a few different ways that you can build a productive system and you can start doing these things today. There’s no need to put things off anymore. Get started now.
I’m pretty sure everyone knows Roald Dahl at this point. You have probably even come across some of his work whether it was by reading his books or just walking past them in the book shops. I’m pretty sure he is most famous for writing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and The BFG, as well as other short stories and children’s books.
He definitely did leave us with some grate tales from his imagination that helped us fuel our own, but he also taught us some very important lessons about life through his work.
Young Carers Awareness Day is an annual event, led by Carers Trust, and is taking place today.
Everyday, thousands of young people in the UK help to look after someone in their family who is ill, disabled or in a situation where they need help.
Young Carers Awareness Day is an annual event, led by Carers Trust. It raises awareness of the challenges faced by young carers and campaigns for greater support for them.
Recent research has shown that as many as one in five secondary school children may be a young carer. A lot of these children may have became a carer at a much younger age too.
Caring for someone can be isolating and stressful and it can put a lot of pressure on young people. Having so much pressure on them can negatively impact their education, have an effect on their future chances.
This is why Carers Trust want to make sure that all young carers get the help and support that they need and deserve. That is why they have launched the Count Me In! campaign.
Politicians in all UK nations can help by:
Monitoring the implementation of legislation relating to young carers, including how many young carers are identified and supported.
Make young carers count by collecting and acting upon national attendance, attainment and wellbeing data on all young carers identified by compulsory education providers.
Ensuring local authorities receive appropriate funding so they are able to fulfil their legal duties to provide young carers and help their families with the support that they need.
