Today’s vlog is not just for parents. It is actually for any of us who use a smartphone. We need to find a way to interact better with our phones. I think we would all agree we use them too much and we could all use some strategies to decrease our time on them. So this is the first video in a series talking about how we can have a better relationship with our phones. Each session will be some simple thoughts that are easy to make. Small easy changes that over time will make your relationship with your phone well… better
In the youtube description are the next 14 videos I am going to do. If you have any ideas of other videos for this series let me know.
I cannot believe that this is the 50th video I have made for parents. For this video I am doing something a little different. I want to get better at my channel and the videos I do for people. In this video, I show you the setup of how I do my videos. If you have any ideas of how to help me get uniquely better at what I do please let me know. If you have any future topics you want me to cover please just post them in the comments or send me a message.
I was at a talk the other day and a father came up to me and said “Do you want to know the most revolutionary thing about your talk today” I answered yes, yes I do. He paused and then said it was when I said that families should eat together as much as they can. He said that his family 3 teenagers NEVER eat together except on holidays. He said they put out like a Buffett style dinner. Everyone comes through grabs their food and then disperses all over the house and him and his wife watches TV while eating. So here is the most common sense video… eat dinner together as much as you can.
This has been one of my favourite books for years. I copied out one of the first few pages of the book. Basically, the premise of the book is each day you get up you look at all of these areas of your life. Make daily decisions to live these areas to the best of your abilities. When you go to bed you see how you did. Each chapter of the book is on the different areas of your life mentioned below (attitude, priorities etc). This is a very practical book for people who come from a faith background or not.
Many of us struggle to get to sleep, staying asleep, or getting good rest at night. I want to make a video to help you all get better sleep hygiene. These are just good sleep habits that help you to get a good night sleep or a better nights sleep. Basically, they are good habits to add to your night routine.
Love to hear if any of these thoughts on sleep helped you or your family. Did I miss any good sleep hygiene habits?
In Psalms 90:12 it says “Teach me to number our days, that we may get a heart of wisdom” To me, this is the heart behind the marble jar analogy. This is a concept I have heard of since I had young kids. I really like it
Love to hear your thoughts on the marbles jar analogy. What did you think of my twist on this?
