7 Tips to Keep Kids Away from Your Work Zone

7 Tips to Keep Kids Away from Your Work Zone

You have your important files on your desk at your home, and your sweet little kid just loves to make paper planes. That is surely a reason to worry.

It is not just your documents, when it comes to kids, they have a knack for making even the simplest of things unsafe for themselves and for you as well.

Here are the simplest ways in which you can try and keep the kids away from your work or place.

1. Communicating Directly With The Kids

    The first and probably the best thing that you can do is try is to talk to the child in radar directly. You don’t have to come hard at the boy, just make sure that the child knows the seriousness of your words.

    Make the child understand that you, your work or your room, needs to be left alone for a reason. If you can get your words across clearly enough to the kid, then this might turn out to be the easiest way to solve your problem. That doesn’t usually happen but if you are lucky enough, then who knows? It might go well with you.

    2. A Door Sign

      If you think that talking might not do the trick with the kid, then a door sign might help. The conversation you have with the kids might slip out of their mind, but the door sign will remind them that they are supposed to be away from this place.

      In this manner, you wouldn’t have to answer the door knock every time, and the kid will be prompted to stay away.

      3. Discard The Reasons

        If your work zone is kept separately, then the chances of something interesting enough in this area, apart from a laptop or phone, for your kid is quite less.

        In case you have other interests kept in the same area, then the PlayStation in your room, your sports gear or your guitar might be pulling the kids in your room. One easy way to get them away from your place is to hide these temptations of theirs somewhere else. When they can’t find their desired thing, then they will stop coming to your room.

        4. Give Them Your Time

          Attractive devices or games aren’t the only reason that the kids might be visiting you. The reason maybe YOU!

          If they need some time with you, then hang around with them. The chances are that, once they get some time with you, they might stop coming to your room again and again.

          5. Time to Use A Lock

            If you have tried everything but your kid just doesn’t seem to understand, it is the time to lock the place. It might be rude, but if you are saving something important from getting into the hands of your kids, then locking might be the right option.

            Locks give you the surety that there is no entry of children into your place. If you are trying to keep the kid away from the place because it has dangerous things like your safety gun or any other weapon, then a vault for weapons is a must. We suggest you go through different Gun Safety Reviews and find a vault for your gun as soon as you can.

            6. Use Door Chains

              If you want to keep your kids away from your place by locking the room but not cutting them out totally, then using door chains will not be a bad option.

              The door chains allow the door to be opened slightly, through which the kid can at least communicate with you. In this way, by not totally cutting out the child, you wouldn’t seem rude to them either.

                Keep this option last in the list. That might be fun, but can make you feel bad too. You can scare your kid away from your place by using scary masks or something they’re scared of.

                Just find the time to reassure the child that it was a prank after you are done with your task because of which you want them away. After all, they are only kids.

                Kids can be difficult at times, and we suggest that you try our ways to keep them away from your place without appearing rude with them. We hope that you and your place get some time away from kids in peace. Good Luck.

                How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

                “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

                When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

                Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

                We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

                But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

                So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

                It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

                1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

                Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

                2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

                This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

                You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

                3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

                This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

                4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

                How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

                So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

                If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

                And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
