How to Live on 24 Hours a Day

A big, big thanks to Ryan Waggoner for recommending this excellent, short book.

Here's what Ryan has to say about it:

The title would have you believe it’s about time management, and it is, partly. But it’s also about living deliberately, and about why you should manage your time in the first place. It’s a very quick read, no more than an hour or so, but the principles in the book are incredibly valuable. - http://ryanwaggoner.com/2010/09/how-to-live-on-24-hours-a-day/

I'm a fan of Ryan's work and writing on productivity and habits, so I went and checked the book out. First, yup, it's easy to read in one sitting. Second, yes, there's a lot of good insights into why you should take control over your time.

Now, I'm a person does try to live my time, so you'd think I already have plenty of reasons. And I do. But the author of How to Live 24 Hours Per Day does a really good job of getting you into thinking about things the right way. Also, the book has some really funny English humor in there.

Anxiety in Children

On AnxietyinChildren

Anxiety is a normal part of childhood, and every child goes through phases. A phase is temporary and usually harmless. But children who suffer from an anxiety disorder experience fear, nervousness, and shyness, and they start to avoid places and activities.

A child who sees a scary movie and then has distress falling asleep or has a similar temporary fear can be reassured and comforted. But that is not enough to help a child with an anxiety disorder get past his or her fear and anxiety.

If a child or young person is very anxious it can affect the whole family. Parents and siblings might be concerned about upsetting the anxious person and might have to change or cancel activities and routines to accommodate the anxiety.

Anxious young people may not want to go out in public, they can find it hard to see friends, take part in activities or meet new people. This can affect their relationships and their development.

Anxiety can prevent children and young people from doing their best at school and sometimes from attending school or college at all, which will affect their learning and their opportunities later in life.
