Let’s Go Fly a KITE! Creative Outlets for Adults

More and more adults are finding time to have fun!

Bringing back a little child’s play can lighten your mood and bring opportunities to meet new people.

I’m pleased and surprised at a small group of ‘Over 55’s’ gathering to fly their kites! Not just ordinary kites, but stunt kites!

I overheard a conversation this past weekend: “Hey! Want to meet at Vanier Park and fly our kites this afternoon?” Did you know there are instructions on a website to teach tricks for these stunt kites?

I decided to go to Vanier Park for a look: Everyone there had a smile on their face, their cheeks with a rosy glow, and having a great time!

In feng shui, and in other self-healing disciplines, we discuss the inner child as many issues resurface in adulthood and open the scars of life. Addressing our inner child can be as simple as allowing ourselves to have an ice cream cone on a hot day. Remember how much fun it was choosing a flavour?

Many business people are trying to find the balance in their lives, and any form of recreation is encouraged by all health care practitioners. Some are embracing new activities such as bike riding, ultimate Frisbee, ballroom dancing and more, rather than beat themselves up by NOT going to the gym.

Different from organized sports, play time doesn’t require a lot of physical strain or take up a large portion of the day. As the population gets older, instead of being alone, play time encourages interaction when playing scrabble, card games or Pictionary.

Sharing a hearty laugh and learning new skills can help make new friends and new experiences.

Playing games can help the brain problem-solve in less stressful situations. The task, or puzzle, presents itself in smaller challenges that are not so intense.

In your spare time, keeping the brain sharp is easy when you create a habit to work on crossword puzzles, regular puzzles, or Sudoku. (-All good feng shui for the brain.) More than one retiree I know has set up an elaborate train station running through their house!

And now, colouring books! Did you know there is a huge market for adult colouring books? Not the regular childhood books, but with content that features costumes, fantasy, animals, exotic plants and this one I just bought: Mandalas! How cool is that? I get to custom colour my own book of mandalas!

So many people are being distracted with the political climate and their own problems; chastising their own efforts to get ahead, trying to lose weight or make more money. Sadly, these issues will always be here.

Have a look at the ‘Children and Creativity Area’ of your home and office. This space can also be an eye opener for what is laying stagnant in your life. From a front entrance, it is located at the mid point -half way up on the right side.

When you can clear up this area (example: closets, bookcase, spare room) you should discover more room will open up for creative possibilities. This is what many of us need to do for our own mental health; shake off a few things and lighten up.

Next month, when my commitments are finished for the year; I’ll be at the wool shop for some colour therapy! Knitting a colourful scarf is always good therapy for me over the winter months.

Here is a new challenge: before you huddle in because of frosty weather, find a way to bring fun and playtime into your life. Enjoy yourself; anything goes…

When you lighten up, the world seems to be a brighter place.

Emily and Lee’s Kenyan Safari

I love starting trips on weekends. The traffic to escape Nairobi is clear and we don’t have to start a safari in a jam. Emily and Lee conveniently started their journey to Mombasa on a Saturday morning, and we found ourselves bright and early at Wildebeest Eco-Camp in Karen. It was a reasonably unremarkable drive, therefore, to Amboseli. The only potential for disaster arose when I inserted my foot firmly in my mouth with a cynical remark about the aid industry… only after the words were out did I remember that Lee works as a fund raiser for an NGO.

But their humour remained intact, even after the 22 kilometres of corrugated road on the last stretch to the park (it’s nothing compared to the road to the Maasai Mara, but not having that for comparison, 22 kilometres can also be tiring).

Our arrival at Kibo Camp was like a homecoming for Francis and me. First Charles, the supervisor, cracked a big smile in welcome as he saw us emerging from the van. Francis had only been there a few days before, but I was pleasantly surprised they remembered me after several months.

We checked in and Charles generously gave us a new guest tent. The tents are floored with stone and covered with cow-hide rugs. The four-poster bed in the middle of the room is surrounded with a mosquito net which is set up during the evening turn-down service while we have dinner. At the rear of the tent is the en suite with flush toilet and hot shower. The water is solar heated – part of Kibo’s eco-friendly efforts. No time to linger in our luxurious tent though; it was lunchtime.

As Francis and I entered the dining room our old friend Gona was preparing our table. When he turned and saw us, it was like meeting a long-lost pal. “Mama and Papa Overland” he cried and shook both our hands energetically. Nothing is too much trouble for Gona – as he says “my name is Gona and I’m gonna serve you.” Gona had christened us Mama and Papa Overland on my first visit to Kibo in 2013. We were quietly tickled by the name and are glad it’s stuck.

Safari in Amboseli

Emily and Lee had their first game drive that afternoon. They were lucky with an early lion sighting! Even better, it was a lion couple on their honeymoon. Of course they also saw plenty of elephants and a hippo with her baby out of the water.

Emerging from our tents at sunrise the next morning, we were greeted with a perfect view of a naked Kilimanjaro. Usually covered in cloud during the day, early morning is the best time to see the mountain and Amboseli is the best place for those views. Francis whisked Emily and Lee off to the park for an early morning game drive. Over breakfast, Lee marvelled at the incredible variety of birds they had seen during the drive, many of which they had never heard of, including the Secretary Bird. We all had a giggle at Francis’ imitation of the Secretary Bird as it hunts. Amboseli National Park comprises a large swamp in the middle of a massive arid area and thus attracts many water birds including water rail, egrets, herons, ibis, kingfishers and plovers.

After breakfast we bid our farewells to the awesome staff and started back to Mombasa Road. The highway between East Africa’s main port and the rest of the region is only single lane in each direction with some trucks hurtling along at hair-raising speeds while others barely make it up the gentlest of inclines. Side mirrors are a needless accessory it seems and rarely used. It’s not my favourite road to travel on and so I like to either turn around to talk to people behind or pretend to sleep – anything to not look at my impending death over and over! Francis is masterful though and navigates the other drivers’ craziness with cool calm.

Leopards and Elephants

Our destination was Taita Hills and Lumo Sanctuary. It took us about six hours from Kibo to Taita Hills but it was worth it as Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge came into view. A herd of elephants were wending their way through the lodge’s stilts as they made their way to the waterhole. I had tried to describe how the waterhole is at the reception area, but it’s difficult to understand that elephants can be just a few metres away as you check in, until you get there!

Once you are there it is even more difficult to tear yourself away from the incredible proximity you have with these beautiful creatures. However, after enjoying sunrise over Kilimanjaro that morning we felt it a fitting end to have a drink watching the sun set over the mountain. The only trouble was that we got distracted by a couple of lionesses feasting on a zebra on our way. By the time we got to Lion’s Bluff, the sun had all but disappeared. The thing about being so close to the equator is that sunset happens in about five minutes – not the two-hour romance we get in Melbourne! But Lion’s Bluff still has one of the best balcony bars in Africa, so we indulged in a glass of wine anyway.

There’s a rocky outcrop in Lumo Sanctuary where on one of my earliest visits another driver-guide told us he had just seen a leopard. We scoured the outcrop, fully circling it, looking for the leopard with no luck. On every subsequent visit I search that outcrop desperately for the leopard. I look among the tree branches and in the cracks and crevasses of the rocks, always suspecting the leopard will be in the most hard to see place and really wanting to be the first clever cat to find it.

So the third day of the safari saw us on an early morning game drive close to this outcrop with me desperately craning my head to find the elusive leopard. As I carefully searched the branches of a particularly large sausage tree (a leopard’s favourite), everyone started talking about something else remarkable: the large elephant that almost seemed stuck under the very same tree. Had I really missed that?! He was perched somewhat tenuously on a ledge and munching on the leaves of the sausage tree. As he backed up, his side rubbed against the rock giving an audible demonstration of how thick his skin must be. After watching him for some time and satisfying ourselves that he wasn’t really stuck, we continued our circuit of Leopard Rock.

I returned to looking in all the hidey holes when a minute later Francis suddenly hit the brakes and said “Leopard!” And there, lounging in plain view on a Pride Rock-style arrangement was indeed a leopard! What luck! And we were the only ones there to enjoy this magnificent sighting. After several minutes however another van approached, but too fast and too noisily. The leopard jumped lightly off his rock lounge and disappeared into the grass. (Note: suggest to your driver-guides they drive slowly in the parks, especially as they approach another vehicle that is obviously looking at something, so you don’t miss out on exciting sightings.)

We were happy with our sighting anyway, and headed back to the lodge for breakfast. This morning the zebras were having their turn at the waterhole, but not before having a bit of a chase around with the elephants.

Kenya’s coast

Then it was time to drive to Mombasa. To avoid driving through the city centre, we turned off at Mariakani and drove through rolling green hills. It became a rough road but the scenery was quite beautiful (aside from the large rubbish dump in one part). Finally we got to Nyali where Francis and I took our bearings from the dentist’s office he had visited in 2013. As he had been under the influence of strong painkillers at that time, I suggested he trust my directions… and eventually we got there.

We had such a great time with Emily and Lee and we can’t wait to welcome them in 8-10 years when they bring their baby daughter for safari!

For us, we found a campsite and sat down to a cold Tusker and a chat about how long we were going to enjoy our beach holiday. The silver lining of Kenya’s tourism decline is that we didn’t have to rush back to Nairobi for the next safari… lucky us??!!

After a lazy morning, we headed 11 kilometres north to Jumba la Mtwana, the ruins of an Arab trading port. It was very interesting; the guide taught us a lot. And it was so beautiful – ruins of stone and coral buildings amongst trees of so many shades of green. The port was active between 1350 and 1450 and has three mosques and many houses including a hotel of sorts for the traders who sailed in.

In the morning before leaving for Nairobi, we visited Bombolulu Workshop and Cultural Centre. Established in 1969, Bombolulu is a craft workshop employing people with disabilities. They design and produce jewellery, bags, clothes, wood carvings and many other crafts. It’s a fantastic project employing around 100 staff (that number used to be 350 before the global financial crisis). Accommodation is provided for the staff if they wish and there is a school and day-care centre for their children. It is well worth a visit if you stay on the north coast.

Tips for Staying Warm in the Bleachers

Your body is designed to burn food for energy and produces heat from within. So, don’t forget to eat! If your body is getting cold, it will sacrifice your feet and hands to save its life. Ever wonder why your feet and hands are the first to get cold?! Your body loses heat in 5 ways – radiation, convection, conduction, respiration and evaporation.

  1. Radiation: Just as a wood stove radiates heat into a room, your body radiates heat into the air. The more insulation you put around it, the loss of heat is decreased.
  2. Convection is moving air. Wind blowing through your sweater or around your jacket is heat lost through convection. Windproof outer layers will help prevent heat loss.
  3. Sitting on some cold bleachers at a football game, grabbing a ski pole, or just catching a cold zipper on your neck, are all heat loss by conduction.
  4. Evaporation is a very efficient cooling process.

  • Be prepared for all conditions. Keep an umbrella, poncho or warm jacket with you. Have an indoor, heated place to go… you don’t want to be stuck outside if the weather conditions become extreme.
  • Wear waterproof shoes or boots with a good grip. If your feet are cold and wet, it won’t matter how well the rest of your body is bundled up. You will still be miserable!
  • Wear gloves and/or mittens and long thick socks. These protect your hands and feet, which are the hardest places to keep warm blood flowing. Try wearing thinner gloves underneath heavier winter gloves for extra warmth.
  • Pack warm food. Sometimes all you need in chilly conditions is hot food or drink. Carry a thermos with hot drinks, soups, or noodles. Warm food and drink will warm you inside and keep your strength up.

Signs and Symptoms of Hypothermia: shivering, shallow breathing, confusion, exhaustion, slurred speech, loss of coordination, weak pulse, unconsciousness (in severe cases)

Treatment of Hypothermia: remove any wet clothing, protect individual against the wind, move to a warm shelter as soon as possible, rewarm the individual with extra clothing, take the person’s temperature if a thermometer is available, offer warm liquids (avoid alcohol or caffeine).

Humor May Be Hazardous To Your Illness

Many of you may be too young to recall the story of Norman Cousins. The 60-second version: When diagnosed with a degenerative disease (ankylosing spondylitis) he checked himself into a hotel across the street from his hospital, and with the support of his doctor and his friend, Allen Funt (Host of Candid Camera-are you too young to remember that, too???), he basically laughed himself into remission. He wrote a book about his experience, Anatomy of an Illness, and a new era-psychoneuroimmunology began.

Scientists began to study the healing power of humor and validate that there really is truth to the saying, “Laughter’s the best medicine.” Benefits to your cardiovascular system, your respiratory system, your musculoskeletal system, your immune system, your endocrine system, your nervous system, your digestive system-the evidence grows leaps and bounds daily! But here’s my suggestion: Don’t wait for further proof. Do a little self-experimentation. Incorporate humor into your daily routine. Make humor a habit and enjoy a healthier you!

Create a humor habit

Norman Cousins created a humor habit by watching reels and reels of Candid Camera (that was before VCRs and TiVo). Below are a few techniques to help create your humor habit:

Jokes and Anecdotes

I think everyone ought to learn at least one joke. Something short, easy to remember, and non-offensive. But better than jokes are stories. What’s most personal is most universal. Those who know and love me will understand why I so enjoyed the story sent to me by my angel, Jim Brown. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did!

“Several days ago as I left a meeting at a hotel, I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down. I was looking for my car keys. They weren’t in my pockets. A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing. Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car. Frantically, I headed for the parking lot.

My wife had scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition. My theory is that the ignition is the best place not to lose them. Her theory is that the car will be stolen. As I burst through the door, I came to a terrifying conclusion. Her theory was right! The parking lot was empty. I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, and confessed that I’d left my keys in the car and that it’d been stolen.

Then I made the most difficult call of all. “Sweetheart,” I stammered. (I always call her sweetheart, especially in times like these.) “I left my keys in the car and it’s been stolen.” There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard her voice. “Are you kiddin’ me?!” she barked, “I dropped you off at the hotel!!!”

Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, “Well, please come and get me.”

She retorted, “I will… as soon as I convince this cop I didn’t steal your car!”

Manipulate your environment

Increase your likelihood of experiencing humor by keeping things that amuse you within arm’s reach. Books, audio clips, games or pictures-what brings you a smile, or better yet a chuckle?

Create Your Humor Habit:

Jigsaw Puzzles-for your computer!

Putting together a puzzle can be relaxing, fun, and good for your brain! But perhaps you’re a bit short on time or table space. Checkout Mindjolt.com for puzzles and lots of fun games. Dr. O. Carl Simonton of the Simonton Cancer Institute determined that play is crucial to our well-being, and that we’d all be healthier if we slated 15-30 minutes of play into our day. Schedule some time for puzzles in your repertoire of recreation!

The question that we seek to answer now is the utility of application development service for social media. Can social media and applications for Facebook and its likes create value for business? If yes, then how?

To begin with social media is ahead of the conventional forms of electronic media. Social media unlike any of its predecessors has democratized content creation, distribution and editing because social media works on user generated content. Second, social media enables content in any form-textual, audio, video and photographic content to be shared across the globe in very short time. In other words seen from the economic perspective the additional cost incurred in producing an additional copy of content on social media is zero unlike its predecessors. This additional cost of producing an additional unit or copy of that content is referred to as marginal cost in the language of business and economics. It is this very feature of social media that allows viral marketing of content to take place. Third social media allows for the distribution of content to take place in geometric progression with a minimum impact of triple scaling. The reason behind this is plain and simple. Social media allows for what is called “closing the triangle” in the language of network economics.

Measuring Attitudinal and Behavioural Loyalty to Strengthen Customer Relationship Management

Does your customer love your brand? If yes, to what extent is he willing to go to show his love for the brand? In situations when he is not purchasing anything from the business does he take any initiative to show his love in an indirect way? Does he take the pains of introducing or recommending your brad to a new prospect? These questions assume a lot of significance in the context of Face Book applications and its likes.

In the first place the value of CRM practices has already been testified by the rank and file of corporate leaders and beyond doubt is one of the foundational pillars of customer retention and higher sales generation. In the revised digital landscape social applications take the game forward to the next level by allowing customers to control the relationship by allowing them to decide the intensity of the relationship they want to share with a brand or company. Social app development allows customers to gain control of what is now known as customer managed relationship. While traditional CRM practices like cold calling and email marketing allowed customers to get in touch with the company when the company approached them, social apps let customers decide the timing of conversation. Indirectly this means greater power to the customer. Conventional CRM practices were about measuring behavioural loyalty only. Social apps allow businesses to measure both behavioural and attitudinal loyalty.

To conclude then development of social apps is not just about enabling customers to make purchases. It is something beyond that, Businesses would do well to realize that the intensity and warmth of the relationship between a customer and business is lost not during purchases but during periods of abominable lull with little or no interface. In such situations both the business and the customer end up behaving like friends with benefits. Social app development not only allows businesses to keep the cement concrete mixer going but also allows them to encrypt the latent potential of building sustainable communities of people around the business.
