How our eating habits affect our lifestyle and how to overcome them?

Being well into the summer, we can’t get enough of various ways to beat the heat. Cold soft drinks, soda and other aerated drinks, smoothies, milkshakes, ice-creams and other cold things to eat and drink is all that we can think of. We want to consume everything chilled and right off the refrigerator. Although there is enough awareness that the best food to consume during the heat wave is fruits and vegetables, we often head towards a quick solution.

techniques consciously designed and selected towards this holistic approach.

As the saying in English goes, “All work and no Play makes Jack a Dull boy”. It has been
forgotten that academic learning and sports education complement each other. They resemble the
two sides of the same coin. If sports education is carried out accompanied with the academic
curriculum, the overall personality of the student is increased to quite an extent. The qualities of
the leadership, sharing, team spirit and tolerance are learnt from sports.

Integrity-Become a Good human Being Before a Successful One

 

zeeschool-blog2

 

We live in a world where the destination is more important than the journey. In a bid to achieve success, we often forget honesty and morality. Dishonesty might help you today in a sales pitch but tomorrow if the customer /client isn’t satisfied, you will not only lose the customer but also get a bad name for your organisation. Children must be taught to value honesty and uphold ethical responsibility not only in their jobs but also in their life. Success when achieved fast, using immoral ways, will also leave you equally fast.

Simple things like owning up to one’s own mistakes, making genuine promises and not eluding people with exaggeration, being true to people and valuing their efforts, instead of taking advantage of them just to get your work done, appreciating other people’s work and not hogging the limelight for something you haven’t done. These values are very generic in nature and everyone knows their importance, but somewhere down the line power and success blinds them or they succumb to pressures and choose immoral means to succeed.

Integrity is not part of any book or curriculum, it is something children imbibe from family, school and friends.

The world will remember you not based on your success but the kind of human being you are, and values like integrity make you that human being.

Developing Right Attitudes to Prepare Children for the Corporate World

Apart from skills and education, what will get children to shine in this competitive world is the attitude. Two people with similar education but with different attitudes will approach work or life differently. And this difference makes one more successful than the other. Today, we shall look certain types of attitudes that will help children reach great heights in the corporate world.

Curiosity: As children, curiosity is abundant in them, but we must make sure to keep sustaining curiosity and stimulating higher levels of curiosity by introducing them to books, documentaries, and other educational media. Today,  technology keeps them abreast with the world happenings; adequate exposure to it will keep them aware and also push them to know more!

Value For Time & Money: Time and money are two factors which the world runs on. People who value time and money, value the world and the world will value them. A routine or discipline needs to be instilled in their everyday lives. This will make it easier for them to get accustomed to a fast-paced business world. When they learn to respect money, they will automatically learn to respect hard-work. Also, one must learn to handle personal finances,  only then one earns credibility.

Ambition: Employers are looking for ambitious people, hungry to learn and eager to achieve greater heights. Those who are passionate about their work and are willing to continuously hone their skills to fit into the market are priceless to companies. Of course, there must a balance between one’s personal ambitions and the company’s interests. The kind of value an employee attaches to the company can make him an asset or a liability, one must learn to look at the bigger picture, and not just personal success.

Solution-Driven & Open : When children are taught to be solution driven, it heightens their innovating capacity, pushes them to strive for excellence and makes them open to different perspectives and possibilities-all of which are necessary to develop leadership and team-building skills. Children with such skills and attitudes will be more resourceful to organizations, making them almost indispensable and of course successful!

Most of all, children need to be true to their work and their learning processes. They must be able to harness the learning at home and school,  to the best of their potential, to face a cutthroat yet exciting corporate life.

WHAT ARE WE DOING TO OUR CHILDREN?

zeeschool-blog3
We were waiting for our food to be served in a restaurant when I noticed a toddler refusing to eat her food in our neighbouring table. Her parents addressed the issue immediately by handing over a mobile phone to her. The rest of the meal was taken care with the child happily watching the videos.
This is the scenario in many households today. Dora, the explorer and Doremon are the companions of our children on the dining tables. This habit formed at a young age continues through teenage and later, in our busy lives, we tend to multitask while we have our food. Various studies show that we need to be mindful while eating our food. Why is this so? What are we doing to our children?

''BOOKS ARE THE WINDOWS TO THE WORLD"

zeeschool-blog2

Really? Is it true? Yes, dear friends ... it is a truth indeed!

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

Tell me, how many of us have the secret desire to travel the whole world and see how big this world is? Yes, you are right. Most of us. Then start reading a book and see how it enlarges your world. You are never alone when you're reading a book. Have you ever felt it when you are reading your favorite book? When you are relaxing… sinking down in the sofa... slowly… just like a movie fade out... that your real world is evaporating and you are alone inside the world of the story of your book... living the life of the story? Isn't that our most favorite feeling?
