3 propuestas de educación

(1) desarrollo
estoy conociendo sobre los procesos de desarrollo de los niños/as de 0 a 6 años. es sorprendente lo que te dejan saber desde que nacieron, y lo poco que los escuchamos. Touchpoints me ha enseñado mejores maneras de entender sus procesos. ahora cuando miro a los adultos puedo imaginar su temperamento cuando niños, y eso es fascinante.

(2) feliz y sano
si la escuela fuera lo que Logan LaPlante propone sería un lugar de mucha alegría y gran exploración. sobre todo ayudaría a los niños a entener las herramientas para cultivar la felicidad y mantenerse saludables; inteligencias tan importantes para este planeta.

(3) paz
comparto extractos de lo que la vida me ha enseñado, y lo que un ser valiente puso en este artículo. de estas enseñanzas necesitamos en la escuela de la vida.

21 Tips to Keep Your Shit Together When You’re Depressed.

  •  Pick up a paintbrush, a pencil, an activity you got joy from in the past and re-explore that.  Or, sign up for the thing you always wanted to try. There is a long history and link between depression and creativity. It’s a bright light of this condition, so utilize it to your best advantage.
  •  Eat nutritionally sound, regular small meals. If you’re having trouble eating, try to focus on what you’d like to eat...
  • Learn how to meditate. Start by focusing on your breathing. Not sleep, not thoughts. In through the nose, out through the mouth. Meditation is focusing on being present in your body, not careening around in your brain. It may not be as good as sleep but it will give you some rest and recharge you.
  • Face a window as often as you can – at work, at home. Look out into the world. Watch. Observe. Try to find something you find pretty or interesting to focus on. And, handily remember that one in five of those people out there feel the way you do.
  • Cry. Better out than in. Sometimes it’s not convenient or career-enhancing to cry, so find a private place as best you can and let the tears go. 
  • Let go or be dragged. This is an old Buddhist saying. It’s a very useful way to frame aspects of depression. Betrayal, anger, fear… letting go is a process – often a painful and difficult process - but it’s ultimately going to show you the path out of this terrible place. Repeating the mantra can help when you’re feeling gripped by these feelings.
  • Wear clothes that make you feel confident. It takes as much time to put on nice clothes as it does to put on sweatpants. You will want to wear the sweatpants. Fight the urge. The whole “look good/feel better” campaign isn’t limited to cancer and chemotherapy. Or women.
  • Simple exercise, if you can. It can be something as simple as taking the stairs up a flight, or walking around the block. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, it doesn’t have to involve climbing a mountain or running a marathon. Baby steps.
  • Depression will lie to you. Depression will try to tell you what others are thinking.  That you are unloved and unworthy, that others think little of you or don’t care – or even wish you harm. You are not a psychic. Keep repeating that. “I am not a psychic”.  Repeat. The only way to know what another person is thinking is to up and ask them.
  • Forgive yourself.  I’m writing out all these tips, and I can’t always muster the strength to even stick my nose outside, or walk up the stairs, or eat my vegetables. Today, I got outside for ten minutes. I will try again tomorrow. And I will try again the day after that.
