National No Moaning Day

I think this would be an amazing way to get sponsorship and make money for charity.

There are similar things about on the internet, like the 21 day no moaning challange –

Are you willing to take the 21 day No Moaning Challenge?

You should be able to nominate a spouse, a colleague, a gym partner or yourself and get sponsorship for charity.

This should definitely be a thing. Either that, or a 30 days of gratitude challenge. Gratitude is a life changer, try it for a week and see the difference that it makes.  I think it would be a cool idea to take pictures of everything that you are grateful for, and make a collage out of it; that is then placed in a prominent place at home or in work.

Meditation for Children?

Listening to Deepak Chopra, and other successful and apparently well-balanced people like Noah Elkrief, it would appear that they all meditated, as kids.

It makes sense, especially when these days, kids seldom have to sit and be silent and endure boredom (or just silence) for hours like we used to. Now they have tablets, iPads they can play on instead of having to watch Antiques Roadshow at Nan’s house, and even drop down TV’s in the people-carriers so that long journey are no longer tedious.

How are they expected to sit and watch a teacher chalk stuff up on the blackboard for 6 hours a day, when they’re normally used to high-level stimulation that comes from all the colours and flashing lights and intensity of computer games?

Maybe meditation is a good remedy, I’m not sure, but certainly worth looking into…
