In working life, each of us will have more or less bad habits. What is the bad habit that everyone hates most? There are many answers, but the most proportion is “procrastination”.

For example, the report to be submitted after 5 days, the time is very plentiful, but at 12 o’clock on the fourth day, you only opened ahead, until 6 o’clock in the morning of the fifth day, you stayed up late, only to complete it.

Another example is that when I was a child, I had to finish my homework for 2 months, but many of my friends dragged them to the last one or two days before they began to madly write homework. These are actually caused by delays.

Why do we have procrastination?

1 attention is too distracting

I often say that when I have to do something, my attention has shifted to other things, and I haven’t done it for a long time. Why does homework always have to work in the last one or two days? Because everyone is on holiday, they completely relax the tense spirit of going to school, and can’t do things when they go to school. They can arrange one by one during the holidays, watch TV, play games, play with friends, travel, etc., and their attention is scattered. I don’t want to face the hard work of homework.

2 hate being assigned tasks

Why is the report delayed until the last night to finish? Because this is a task assigned at work, the heart is actually not willing to complete, so it may have been escaping until it has to face it.

3 can’t perfect things, lack confidence in completing tasks

You don’t have the confidence that you have to accomplish the task. I feel that there is no clue and I don’t know how to finish it. Therefore, I would rather delay and do not want to work hard. I have been delaying until the end. The perfectionist is probably a critically ill patient with procrastination, but if everything is perfect, many things are impossible at first.

4 goals too far

The target is too big for space, and there is no practical meaning, so there is no motivation to execute immediately, and it has been delayed, which is one of the reasons for the delay.

In fact, the delay is not just a matter of time management. It is a question of how we get along with ourselves, and it is also a psychological problem. So how do we improve the problem of procrastination?

How to improve procrastination?

1 Set yourself a goal that can be completed and pragmatic, not too idealistic. For example, suppose you want to read 10 books in a period of time, one book per week, and one hour every night. This is something that can be achieved in your own ability. Then, when you arrive at the time, you will remember the goal you set, because the original goal has been broken down into small goals in several stages, so it is easier to implement.

2 Treat the time realistically, just start doing it, don’t think about the whole thing that may not be completed. I have to spend a lot of time to finish thinking about this matter. Don’t always think that I will have enough time to finish tomorrow. I will now plan what the second step of the first step is, when to start, how much time, and how much time. Is there a flexible time? We can only complete every part of the matter through the next 30 minutes, don’t think that only half an hour, I can’t do anything, then don’t do it.

3 Be mentally prepared for difficulties and setbacks. In the process of completing the task, I encountered one or two difficulties, don’t give up, it is just a problem that you need to solve, not a reflection of your ability value; whenever you don’t find an excuse for yourself since you can’t finish it. Then, give up directly, but tell yourself, take a break, think about the problem from another angle, or ask other friends and colleagues.

4 Encourage every progress you make, without perfection, focus on your own process, don’t care too much about the results. Don’t think about doing things all must be done, otherwise, I will be very uncomfortable, but I have been working hard to do this, this feeling is good, now relax, listen to some light music, and then you can do better.

Of course, we also have to accept what we are, to connect with the depths of our hearts, and to live healthy lives according to our own values.

0-1 years old is one of the fastest growing stages of babies. At this stage, the baby explores the world through the mouth, at the same time, the oral cavity is also an important body part for the baby to enjoy and meet and communicate with the outside world. At this stage, the baby’s brain develops most rapidly (already more than 50% of the adult brain weight); at this stage, the baby needs to rely entirely on the mother (caregiver) to survive.

  1. Meet the needs of the baby as soon as possible

The fetus came to the world from the womb, one of the major traumas he suffered in his life. Parents provide a safe and comfortable environment for babies due to their continued psychological needs and social “uterus”. Therefore, at this stage, the caregiver (usually the mother) needs to be sensitive to the baby (rather than sensitive to himself) and needs to meet the baby’s needs in a timely and accurate manner. Under such care, the baby can trust the mother and feel that the world he is in is safe, thereby trusting the caregiver (mother), trusting the family, trusting the society, and developing the quality of hope.

 

  1. Try not to change caregivers

0-1 years old is a crucial period for infants to form an initial sense of trust. The home environment should try to provide children with continuous, constant safety links. Therefore, before the age of 1, it is best not to replace the main caregiver (mother), do not let the baby and mother separate. Because there are large differences in the styles of different caregivers, it is difficult to provide a continuous and safe connection for the baby, making the baby easy to confuse.

  1. Support baby’s mouth to explore the world and know the world

For a 0-1-year-old baby, what she gets will be put in her mouth. Because at this stage, the mouth is an important body part for the baby to satisfy the desire (such as sucking milk) and communicate with the outside world. The baby explores and perceives (perceives) the surrounding world through the mouth, thereby promoting the development of the brain. Therefore, before the age of one, parents should not prevent the baby from biting because of hygiene problems. Parents should provide a safe and hygienic environment for babies, and support babies with their mouths to explore the world.

 

  1. Meet the needs of your baby’s food

The world of children is very simple, and the food and needs that children need are also very simple. To give your child more security, you need to understand your child’s needs first. Under normal circumstances, children want to satisfy their appetite, and they will cry out through crying. The food that your baby expects is usually breast milk or formula milk powder. When the baby is still young, Mom and Dad’s parenting experience is still very weak, so they will choose the way to feed regularly. This method is easy to ignore the child’s emotional needs and make the child lack safety.

Therefore, mothers need to learn to understand the signals that the child sends. Mom and Dad can feel it when the child is eager to drink milk. When the child’s demand for milk is met, the child gets more security. The child is satisfied in the diet and will be more emotionally stable.

  1. Communicate frequently with your child

Some parents believe that children do not have to learn to talk, they do not have to communicate with their children. In fact, this is the wrong idea. When the child is still not talking, the baby will also require emotional expression. Communication between parents and children is very necessary. Through communication, moms and dads can give children more security. When the mother is feeding the baby, she can talk to the child and look at the baby with a gentle look, at this time, my mother’s good mood will also affect the baby’s mood. Although the baby can’t talk, the child can also feel the love of mom and dad. This kind of communication can give the child more love and the child will feel safe.

  1. Physical contact

When Mom and Dad are holding their baby, the child will have more security. When the child wakes up alone in the bed, he will cry. This is the performance of the child’s lack of security. At this time, the mother picks up the baby, gives the child a kiss, or we pull the baby’s small hand, this kind of physical contact can give the baby more security. Physical contact is a more direct way to give your child a sense of security. Therefore, when the baby grows up, Mom and Dad don’t forget to hold the baby from time to time, let the child feel the sense of security given by Mom and Dad again.

  1. Harmony of a family atmosphere

The child’s sense of security is also related to the family atmosphere. In a family, the harmony of family relationships has a great impact on children. Mom and Dad can love each other and the children can feel the warmth of the whole family. The impact on children is subtle, allowing children to feel the love of a family. In order to give children more security, moms and dads still have to work harder to create a more loving family environment for their children.

 

At present, many parenting books on the market emphasize the training of infants’ behavior so as not to spoil the children. Some parenting books emphasize that children are fed at regular intervals. When the child is crying, don’t hold the child, and don’t cry when you wait. These parenting methods will make the child more obedient but may give 0-1-year-olds a very unsafe environment. Because when the baby is hungry, urinary, needs to touch and other information, due to the “fostering rules“, the baby can’t get timely and accurate satisfaction. As a result, they gradually fall into despair, suppress emotions, lose trust in their mothers (or primary caregivers), and then lose trust in their families, society, and the world.

0-1-year-old baby will not be spoiled. As a caregiver, parents should be sensitive to the baby, accurately distinguish the needs of the baby, timely and accurately meet the baby, and provide a continuous and constant safety link for the baby.

1, missing the baby’s taste sensitive period

Every food that has not been eaten is fresh and curious for the baby, and they are not born with any prejudice about some foods.

Your baby’s taste and smell are most sensitive during the 6 months to 1 year period. Therefore, this period is the best time to add supplementary foods. By tasting various foods for the baby, let him experience the adaptation process from liquid food to semi-liquid food to solid food, which can promote his taste, smell and taste. It is easy to receive a variety of foods and tastes when the baby is added to the food supplement in a timely manner. The weaning will be smooth. In the process of adding supplementary food to the baby, if the mother sees the baby unwilling to eat or feels a little discomfort, she will stop feeding immediately, or even add supplement food to him, which will make the baby miss the taste and smell. And the optimal formation and development of the taste. Not only will the baby have difficulty in weaning in the future, but it may also cause him to suffer from typical anorexia in the future. If the mother can give him a taste of the food in the baby’s taste and sense of smell, he can cultivate his good taste and sense of smell and prevent him from picking food.

2, improper handling of the baby’s “partial eclipse”

At about 8 months, the baby has shown varying degrees of likes and dislikes to the food, which is the initial “partial eclipse” phenomenon. However, this partial eclipse of the baby is very naive, not permanent. What he doesn’t like at this month’s age, it is very likely that he will become very fond of eating next month. The partial eclipse of this month’s baby is not comparable to the partial eclipse of a bigger child. If the mother does not understand this, it is very easy to worry about the baby’s lack of nutrition, but this baby’s “partial eclipse” phenomenon is very concerned, very “real”, so that a tough attitude to try to change the baby, it will be in the baby The mind left a very bad impression, which made it difficult for him to accept this food in the future and form a true partial eclipse habit.

3, too much attention and worry about the baby’s nutritional  intake

Some mothers always arrange their diet for their baby according to their knowledge of nutrition. They never allow babies to choose food according to their own desires, thinking that this is the only way to ensure that their babies are properly nourished. But in fact, as long as the baby’s taste, smell and taste for food develops normally, normal babies can choose a healthy diet combination from the various foods they love. Although your baby’s appetite may change frequently, it is natural. As long as it is not overly influenced by human prejudice, in the long running, their diet is generally balanced. Therefore, it is not necessary for the mother to limit the baby too much. If you limit your baby’s diet too much, it will bring him too many bad eating experiences, which will lead to his partial eclipse and even anorexia. In the end, the nutritional intake is not balanced, which will have adverse effects on your baby’s health.

4, adding tonics for the baby

0-3 years old is the key period for baby development. In order to make the baby grow better, some mothers like to feed white fungus, longan, pollen, ginseng royal jelly and other supplements for the baby within 3 years old. In fact, the amount of protein, fat, and minerals required by the baby in these supplements is very low. The main ingredient is only carbohydrates, not how much nutrients we can bring to the baby. What is even more worrying is that ginseng royal jelly and pollen also contain certain hormones, which can make the baby’s bone epiphysis close in advance, causing them to be short in the future. If you don’t have special needs, don’t give your baby a supplement, and don’t blindly pursue expensive “rare food” to “care” your baby. If your baby is stunted, you should see your doctor early, and don’t have to feed them by some tonic food.

5, abuse the fortified food for the baby

The baby grows rapidly and has a high demand for various nutrients, but there is no natural food that can meet all of their nutritional needs individually. In order to meet the baby’s growth and development needs, it is necessary to add certain nutrients to some foods to supplement the baby’s lack of essential nutrients. These foods with certain nutrients are called fortified foods. Nutrients often added to children’s foods include lysine, iron, zinc, VD, VA, VB2, etc., which can speed up the growth and development of the baby, or prevent a certain nutrient deficiency. Many mothers often worry about the lack of certain nutrients, and often give their baby a variety of fortified foods, thinking that the more you eat, the better. In fact, fortified foods are not much better. Therefore, it is necessary to give your baby a fortified food with reasonable .

6, giving your baby too much protein intake

High-protein foods are mostly animal foods with high levels of cholesterol and saturated fatty acids. If you eat too much, even a young baby will cause damage to the arterial wall. Moreover, overeating high protein also produces a large number of metabolites that need to be excreted from the kidneys, making the baby’s delicate kidneys overburdened and easily impairing kidney function. What is most needed in the development of your baby’s brain tissue is sugar. These sugars are mainly taken from the staple food of each meal. If you eat too much protein and ignore the staple food, it will cause energy crisis in the metabolism of brain cells, thus affecting normal development. In addition, eating only fish and eating meat does not eat green vegetables, it can cause constipation, causing the baby to have a fever due to “getting angry”. Therefore, the baby’s three meals a day must be arranged in a variety of nutrients, not just protein intake.

7. Choose an inappropriate time to drink water for your baby.

Human gastrointestinal and other digestive organs will secrete various digestive juices during the time of eating, such as oral secretion of saliva, gastric secretion of pepsin and gastric juice. These digestive juices are mixed with the minced food to promote the digestion and absorption of nutrients in the food. However, if you drink water, it will dilute and dilute the digestive juice, and the activity of pepsin will be weakened, thus affecting the digestion and absorption of food. If your baby feels thirsty before meals, drink some boiling water or hot soup first, but don’t go to eat soon. It is best to go eat later.

8, give the baby too much soup

Amino acids in proteins are essential for growing babies because they are building tissues and organs that require large amounts of protein. If guided by the wrong concept, always give the baby soup without meat, even after the teeth are 2 years old, the soup is used as the main source of baby protein, which is actually a kind of sesame throwing watermelon. Scientific approach. It not only causes the baby to be anemia, but also causes other nutrient-deficient diseases such as zinc deficiency. Since zinc is stored in meat, egg and milk in the form of protein binding, it cannot be dissolved directly in the soup. Therefore, there is not much zinc in the soup, and the baby’s body can only consume a small amount of zinc.

Anemia and zinc deficiency can make your baby’s appetite low, especially if zinc deficiency can cause your baby’s taste to diminish, which may cause some babies to have anorexia. In this way, the baby enters a vicious cycle of malnutrition, which makes the body that is already lacking in nutrition more nutritious, and then becomes thinner and thinner, and grows slower, significantly behind the normal diet baby.

  • 0-3 months baby feeding:

Because the organ function of newborn babies is not yet fully developed, the ability to digest and absorb is also weak, so parents should pay special attention to feeding newborn babies.

1.Breastfeeding

Newborns recommend breastfeeding, breast milk is rich in nutrients, it can enhance children’s resistance, and it is important for baby growth and development. Breastfeeding is fed by the need of the infant and does not require regular quantitative feeding. Breastfeeding does not require water.

2.Milk feeding

Mixed feeding and artificial feeding, choose formula milk powder, milk powder should be prepared according to the proportion, milk powder can’t be too thick or too thin. Note that the bottle should be disinfected in time. The baby is not finished once and should not be left for the next time for milk .

Feeding Tips:

  1. Newborns can’t easily change the brand of milk powder. The formula of each brand of milk powder is different.The newborns digestive system is still not perfect, and changing the milk powder will cause the baby to adapt.
  2. Make sure your newborn baby has 20 hours of sleep every day.
  3. Take vitamin D after 14 days of birth.
  4. When feeding milk, pay attention to water temperature and prevent burns.
  • 0-3 month baby’s body development

Physiological index: At three months, the baby boy weighed 4.1 to 7.7 kg, and the length was 55.8 to 66.4 cm; the baby girl was 3.9 to 7.0 cm and the length was 54.6 to 64.5 cm.

Sleep index: Sufficient sleep is one of the prerequisites for the health of newborns and infants. The younger the age, the longer the sleep time, and the baby can sleep for about 20 hours every day within a few days after birth. In addition to eating milk, crying, and defecation, it is basically in a sleep state.

Physical fitness index: In the first few months, the neck muscles became stronger. At first, the baby can only lift his head for a few seconds. The muscles increase each time when the head is raised. By 3 months of age, babies can lift their heads and support their forearms. At this stage, arm and hand movements develop rapidly. Once a clenched fist, now an open hand grabs and hits the object. Infants perceive their hands by placing them in front of their faces and putting them in the mouth. By the end of this period, most babies have reached the following milestones:

  1. Support the head and upper body, stretch the legs and kick
  2. Turn hands on and off , pull it into your mouth
  3. Grab and shake the toy and wave on the shaking object
  4. Follow the eye to move the object and turn your head to face the stimulus
  • 0-3 month brain development:

During this period, the baby’s hearing development is fully mature, he will pay close attention to human voices and will be sensitive to noise. At this age, the child not only has better hearing, but also remembers some of the sounds he hears. He turns his head to familiar voices and language.

Slowly the baby will “see” the object, starting with a short time to stare, even without a focal length, and will not move with the object, the time of blinking will gradually become longer and Will widen eyes. The eyes will become more sensitive and will move with the object.

He is also very sensitive to taste and smell. I like the sweet taste and avoid the bitter or sour smell. He can recognize mother’s milk smell on the weekend of the first week. Babies are also very sensitive to the way that others touch and wrap, prefer a soft rather than rough feeling, don’t like rude feelings. Understand your temper and feelings through your touch before he can understand what you are saying.

What parents can do?

Here are some very simple things you can do with your baby around this time to help her development:

  • Respond to crying: Sometimes babies will cry because something is making them uncomfortable. for example, their nappy is wet , or they’re hungry, or the light is too bright. When you respond to these things, you make your baby feel more comfortable and safe. Cuddle and kiss your baby. This help you baby learn to trust you and rely on you. Even when you don’t know why they are crying , it’s important to comfort your baby during this time. Get to know you baby’s cries. Picking them up , cuddle them , or talk to them in a smoothing voice. Look at your baby’s face while he or she looks at you.
  • Play together:the best toy for your baby is you. Playing with you help your newborn to feel love and secure, and feeling loved and secure helps them develop and learn. Talking and reading to your baby, singing songs like “Twinkle twinkle little star” or other songs you know or playing games are just some of the many ways you can play with your newborn . For older babies, offer a variety of toys, one at a time. Let your baby copy you, and place him in different positions on the floor. So, he can explore in different ways.
  • Smile at your baby. when your baby sees you smile, it releases chemicals in their body that make them feel good . It also helps their brain grow. Smiling plays a part in the connecting and attachment processes.It helps your baby feel secure and safe,and learn about the world .
  • Tummy time: spending some time playing on their tummy each day builds your baby’shead, neck and upper body

strength. They need this strength for lifting their head and for movements they will do later on,like crawling and

pulling up to stand.

  • Baby massage: baby massage is a great way to connect with baby. It can also be relaxing and smoothing if your newborn is cranky. Try it in a warm room after baby has had his bath .
