My Children’s School Outdoor Excursions

In my opinion, it’s often those times where children are not necessarily sitting behind their desk in the classroom where they learn most eagerly and where they can learn the most. I am talking about educational excursions the class.

Those types of excursions with the school can serve various purposes.

Let me just give you some examples. What could be better to learn a new language than actually visiting a country where this language is spoken? Nothing would beat learning a language like this.

Rather than learning  a language from a book, the children can be immersed right into a culture while they are learning the language in daily conversation.

Then there are those types of trips with the class where children can learn about history or culture. Students can visit actual historic sites such as castles or archaeological excavation sites. And of course, the can also learn a lot just by spending a day in a museum.

The problem here is that a lot of public schools today are lacking the funds to do such types of excursions and trips. This is all done because schools need to save money, they simply cannot afford such trips. As a result, the education standards are going down in state schools across the UK. Plus, students may be less motivated as well.

This is entirely different when we look at some of our independently operated private schools here. Most of our private schools don’t have those money problems, obviously. They don’t have a problem allowing their students to visit Paris as a way to improve their skills in French, for example.

I have also seen private schools where the children could spend a week skiing in the Alps.

I think that a private school is ultimately a much better choice as compared to our state schools. From my experience, the children are more motivated and their grades are also better on average. You can visit prep school Bedfordshire if you want to learn more about our quality private schools here in the United Kingdom.

Arthritis & Magnetic Jewellery: My Experience

I am for the longest looking for an alternative treatment for my mild arthritis since I am really not much into drugs. If I can I even avoid common medicines like Aspirin and Ibuprofen.

Last year I still had some decent success with acupuncture but I think the overall benefit was not worth the cost of my acupuncture sessions. This was when my other alternative health practitioner told me about magnetic bracelets and that she has several of her patients who could entirely get rid of their arthritis pains by wearing magnetic bracelets alone.

magnet-therapyAt first I was rather skeptical since I never heard about this type of magnetic jewellery before and my common sense also told me it cannot be that magnets can bring any relief there.

But Dina, my doctor gave me a sheet with more information about magnetic therapy where it was explained with the theory behind it.

I also learned that studies have been conducted which prove that magnetic bracelets do really work, not only for arthritis but for many other health problems as well.

Dina gave me a couple addresses where I could get magnetic bracelets since I didn’t find a store in town who had them. I ordered three and was rather pleased because they arrived just two days later.

What should I say? When I started wearing them (day & night, mind you!) at first I didn’t think they will work. But after a few days I definitely saw that the arthritis pain was less since I could work longer where I otherwise would already feel the first pains. And about two weeks later wearing them there is in my opinion no doubt about it that the magnetic bracelets give me significant relief so that there is almost no pain at all anymore.

So, for anyone suffering from arthritis who are looking for some good alternative to drugs I can definitely recommend magnetic jewellery. Of course I can’t say whether it will work for you too but if you don’t give it a shot you will never know!
