As one of the 7 yr olds I know aptly puts it: "I am too busy studying and playing". Play does not need to be a structured, scheduled activity all the time. Allow your kids to be bored at times: let them explore, discover, invent- seeing the world around them with a set of eager, wondorous eyes.

Some of you might have noticed that when things do not work out, you find yourself generally getting agitated or angry; and at that time, you feel too overwhelmed to react in any other way.
What would help is coming up with and practicing rational, calming self-talk during that time. It helps to reorient you and give you space to pause:

Is there a change you’ve been wanting to make since very long?
Have you still been stuck in your situation somehow?
Do you get anxious when you think about change?
Do you altogether avoid thinking about change?

If you are in such a space, you are certainly not the only one. You only have to ask a few others before you realize that managing change is real hard work for many people, or maybe, for most people.
Considering how common a situation this is, we at Inner Space decided to get together and write about change, why it is difficult, how it feels to be stuck and how one can settle into change a little more easily.

Do read our article and let us know what your struggles with change have been like.

Change here reflects ones ambition or goal. If one does not attain his goal, it means he has not witnessed the change. He still suffers the pain of struggle and dreams are still to come true. Curse of change felt, when one peeps in the past (where the change came) and wishes not to have the change at any cost. Because, his past holds purity of all the colours.

"Sometimes, it only takes a trigger to join a herd that is on a destructive spree." - Sadia Raval 

We frequently come across news articles about crowds getting violent. Irrespective about the issue at hand, mob violence can at times reach unsteadying and riot-ike heights. 
Have you wondered why this happens?
Why people who are generally peaceful or law-abiding turn aggressive in an angry crowd?
What do we actually mean by "mob mentality"? 
Is there any way to curb this?

This article by mid-day speaks to Sadia Raval and professionals from various fields such as law, education and psychology to explore and understand these very questions. An interesting read, for sure:
To understand reason behind recent incidents of violence in Mumbai, mid-day talks to experts in the field of psychology and law enforcement to find out how an individual becomes part of a mob

It helps when people who seem to 'have it all', come into the open with their mental health concerns. Its time to care for mental health as much as physical health and not to see seeking help as a weakness but rather as a way to care for oneself.

“It is our job to prepare our children for the road
And not prepare the road for our children”
-Dr Wendy Mogel (Clinical Psychologist)
The last couple of decades has seen a big shift in parenting style, especially in the urban set-up. As people move towards better financial stability and as their goals and the time they spend with their children changes, so the way they parent changes. A new breed of parents who believe in giving children everything they possibly can is not uncommon.
However, what do children really need from their parents? And does overly indulging them actually help them to grow?
As therapists who have frequent interactions with parents and children, this concern has been an important part of our team discussions. 
So here is our entire team coming together telling you what they think. In this detailed article we cover the reasons parents tend towards overindulgence, the effects on children and new perspectives on what could be done instead!

"We'll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own", says Guy Winch. 

But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence with which we take care of our bodies.

Today's food for thought: Inclusion 
Let us think of inclusion not only for differently abled children in schools or for those with mental health issues in society, but also as inclusion of any kind of difference- social, economic, religious, developmental, psychological and so many more. Let us think of inclusion differently- of inclusion as accepting and integrating diversity in every form.

Inclusion implies many meanings;
First, to participate in any activity. Whether it would be political; through means of voting or legislative.
Second, Social works in volunteer form or collective form by helping the souls of society.
Third, Economically, by virtue of transaction or reception of money. Economics also satisfy many other meanings here i-e budgeting, calculating, accounting, depositing, investing and employing a staff in an organisation.
Fourth, Religiously and spiritually. It gathers the meanings of worship, rituals, customs, traditions all by the philosophy of religion.
Fifth, Psychologically, to activate and arouse the emotions of any one for the cause of own gains or social gains.
Inclusion is not just a word. In fact, it is a vast notion, theory, philosophy and ideology. Which covers almost all the parameters of modern day sciences; social as well as natural. This word guarantees the true betterment of our world.

“Mindfulness, also called wise attention, helps us see what we’re adding to our experiences, not only during meditation sessions but also elsewhere.” - Sharon Salzberg

We are revisiting the basics! 
We are glad to announce that we would be conducting our Basic Mindfulness Workshop on 22nd February and 1st March (both Sundays) at the beautiful Tangerine Arts Studio Through the sessions, we aim to help you gain a deeper understanding into the nature of your mind, while understanding the basics of mindfulness. 
These mindfulness sessions will be focused on helping you get centred amidst the chaos of everyday life. Being centred means being able to connect with one’s core-to that space within that is steady and is not too affected by the stressful situations we face. And the good news is that: we already have this space within us :)

Do join us and let friends and family know about it as well.

We have been talking about how it is okay to seek help, and that it doesn not mean you are weak. 
A sweet poem about reaching out for help :)
