Last year I started the Small Business Management Course at Te Wananga Aotearoa. Did you know this is a FREE course??
I’m now working on the third module, Marketing. For my assessment I have had to put together a survey.
If you are in the wider Wellington New Zealand region, can you please take a few minutes to fill in my short survey?? And share it around maybe as well? I really appreciate your feedback!

Hi all, hope you are making the most of this long Waitangi weekend. Here’s your Weekly Mindfulness Workout:
Feeling happy comes from having happy thoughts, and you can practice this, start with just a minute a day. This might feel a bit strange in the beginning, but every new habit feels a bit uncomfy first. Just randomly start with labeling everything that is happy, pretty or good around you. For me that goes like this right now: I love how my cat is so confident and relaxed chilling in the middle of the living room, I like the pretty flowers on my teacup, that pen writes so smooth, I enjoyed the chat with my mum on Skype today, that little wooden cat my son made is such a cheerful thing to look at, how cute look all the pink hearts together, that I have crocheted for Little sprouts, that pink colour on that card is gorgeous, and so on. You might get distracted halfway through, that is only normal! Just go back to having happy thoughts.
Decide what is a good time for you to practice. Maybe when you have your shower in the morning, or drinking your morning tea. Or every time you have to wait in traffic. You could pick the same moment every day so it is easy to remember. You can even set the timer on your phone to remind you, or write a little sign on your hand, HT for example, Happy Thoughts.
Have a good week!
Recognise this gate???
I have made some changes to my schedule. And I’m happy to let you know that I will be hosting a Coloring and Zendoodle for adults koha group every month at my local community centre in Tawa!!
It’s one of my giving back to community 2016 goals. Hope you pop in, first meeting is Sunday 21 February, 10-12 am.
Looking forward to see you there,
Morning all! First day back at school for many children today, please be careful on the roads!
Here is your Weekly Mindfulness Workout:
Being mindful of yourself includes looking after your thoughts and feelings, and also your actions. Doing things can make you tired, or it can be energizing.
Take ten minutes today, to write down a list of all the things you do, that give you energy, things that make you feel relaxed, things that give you a break, etc. Now every evening after your dinner, have a look at the list, and take note of how many things you have done to refill your battery.
Do you refill enough or are you wearing yourself down? Are you doing well or are you going to make some changes?
I make sure I take regular short breaks to recharge. My things are usually doing something creative like Zendoodle. Short breaks mean that I usually don’t finish a project though. So I have learned to accept that it’s ok not to finish. If you have children, you will have learned that already 😉
Have a good week!
