Why Your Bed Plays A Big Part In Your Overall Happiness

  This is a collaborative post. Sleeping is something that we absolutely need in order to be healthy, not only physically, but mentally too. Lack of sleep is one of the most common causes of problems through life.  Because lack of sleep causes stress, and that stress can ruin so many pleasant days until it builds up more and more, and you find yourself in a depressive state every day and aren’t sure what to do anymore. You don’t ever…

5 Things That Can Make You Feel Good

A photograph of a woman with her arms wide, smiling and enjoying the sunshine - 5 Things That Can Make You Feel Good - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post. It’s safe to say that we don’t always feel at our best. As much as we’d all love to be able to look and feel incredible at all times, that very rarely happens. In fact, you’re more likely to find that you feel down more than you do good. Because the world can be an incredibly pressurized place. It’s easier than ever to be hard on yourself, and this is when things like depression can…

I recently wrote a post about why I’m passionate about our children developing emotional intelligence. I believe it’s crucial for them to understand their emotions and know how to deal with them correctly. To help us on this journey to developing Little Mister H and Little Miss H’s emotional intelligence I will be working with Skylark Learning. And we will be using their My First Emotions Box to help Little Miss and Little Mister become emotionally intelligent. As part of…

This is the thirteenth Our Weekend Happy post that I’ve written for this blog. I missed writing last week’s post, which wasn’t great. But in the end, it worked out quite well as we’ve just had quite a rubbish weekend. Mr H spent most of the weekend ill in bed and I had a terrible migraine. The poor children must have been so bored. But they were as good as gold and happily played on their own for most of the weekend.…

As a society, we value intelligence. And once our children start school we want them to do well academically. We help them learn to read and we show them how to write their name. Evenings are spent practising spellings and times tables. Yet we rarely teach our children about emotional intelligence. From an early age, we shhh them when they cry. We tell our children to be quiet when they’re angry. And we often use negative language to describe their emotions. They’re…
