Groove Life Watch Band Review

 

Do you own a smart watch? Do you love purchasing customized bands to add a fashionable look to go with your outfits?

Whether it is an Apple, FitBit, Samsung etc…these are all the rave. I have an Apple Watch and I love to customize my bands. I have though ordered bands online that have broke or stretched out very quickly which is disappointing. A few years back I did a review on silicone rings from a company called Groove Life. They contacted me to let me know they now offer smart watch bands. I was so excited to receive and try out these bands.

Groove Life offers high-performance silicone watch bands for men and women. Groove Watch Bands are durable and breathable, yet surprisingly comfortable. The bands are available for Apple, Samsung and Fitbit type smart watches. They come in a variety of band styles, hardware colors and band sizes.

The band prices range from $39.95-$54.95. When the bands arrive to your door they are packaged in nice metal tins to hold the bands. This is great for storage when you aren’t using your bands.

When you order you will get to choose your hardware color. I have a rose gold apple watch so I chose rose gold hardware. The color matches almost perfectly to my watch. I love that the offer the hardware color so everything matches nicely. You can also choose if you want a shorter band or a longer band. I picked the shorter band and it fits perfectly with my narrow 38mm watch face.

Installing the bands on to my watch was simple and took seconds. The fit is perfect. The bands are super comfortable to wear (they are a bit stiff at first, but after a few days I noticed that they get more flexible) and even dry great once out of the shower/pool.

 

Not to mention that they have an AMAZING warranty! If you break it, stretch it or even lose it…they will replace it. How awesome is that?!

In conclusion, I am very impressed and happy with Groove Life watch bands. They are fashionable, comfortable and made of high quality material. With the outstanding warranty they have, I definitely do not mind spending $49.95 on a Groove Life watch band.

Please check out their site to see all of the awesome watch band colors and designs. Make sure to check out the Groove Life Silicone Rings available too!!!

Boosting Your Little Ones’ Mood During the Coronavirus Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has hit all of us pretty hard. Around the world, people are dying, falling ill and really suffering with the disease in a physical manner. But even those of us who haven’t been physically impacted are generally struggling in some way or another. Whether that’s financially (in that many of us have lost work or are receiving reduced pay right now), socially (as social distancing measures are severely limiting our contact with others we don’t live with), or simply in terms of loneliness, boredom, or anything else. But while the bulk of responsibility and difficulty generally falls on adults’ shoulders, it’s important to remember that our little ones are being impacted too! Most kids aren’t at school right now, which means the routine that gives them a sense of stability and safety has gone out of the window. They’re also likely missing their friends, their extracurricular activities and other facets of day to day life they’d grown used to. But don’t worry. There are a few steadfast ways to boost your childrens’ mood during these hard times.

Request Flexibility with Your Work

If you’re working yourself from home, it may be a good idea to reach out to your employer and request some sort of flexibility that helps work better fit around your children while they’re at home. Working nine to five doesn’t gel too well with trying to educate and look after your kids during their main waking hours too. Most employers will be lenient and may allow you to complete work early in the morning or in the evenings when your kids have gone to bed.

Help With Their Studies

It’s important to remember that all kids are in the same situation right now, so your little ones aren’t necessarily falling behind with their school work more than anyone else. When they return to school, they’ll have to pick up where they left off. But it’s still a good idea to give them some studies during the day to keep their minds engaged and to keep them occupied for a while. Try to make this school work as fun as possible. What will best suit your kids will depend largely on their age. But there are a number of free resources online that can help you no matter what stage they’re at in their education.

Get Them a Treat

Of course, you want your kids to have a balanced diet. But this allows for some treats every so often. Get them a tasty treat to look forward to like delicious snacks from a soft pretzel company, their favourite chocolate bar or pack of sweets, or some crisps they particularly like. This will help to bring a smile to their faces!

Help Them to Keep in Touch With Others

We find it easy keeping in touch with people. We have smartphones, tablets, laptops… the list goes on. But kids may require some help with this. Help them to set up video calls with their friends, family members, or anyone else they may be missing right now.

Now’s a difficult time for everyone. But it’s up to you to make sure that you help your kids through this while maintaining good health, happiness and positivity!

At The Deep End: Learning To Teach Your Children Things You Know Nothing About

For much of us right now, we are definitely learning to fly by the seat of our pants. And when it comes to making sure that our children are learning everything effectively we’ve got to make sure that we structure some sort of lessons. But whether you have a college degree or not you may find that being a teacher doesn’t suit you, especially right now in this pressure cooker situation we’re all going through. In fact, you may find that learning to teach your children things that you know nothing about to be one of the most complex things you’ll ever undergo. And while they say “those that can do, those that can’t, teach” if you find that you’ve got to guide your children to learn things that you know nothing about, what are the best tactics?

 

Find A Few Resources

If you are trying to get your children to find the slope of a tangent line when you have no clue what this is, it’s time to start finding the best resources to get a wider appreciation on the subject. The big problem most of the time we try to learn something is that we only do it through one method. When it comes to learning the subject it may very well be that you’ve got to find other approaches. This could be video tutorials as well as sample exercises and even textbooks. If you use one single resource it may halt your learning.

 

Search For The Answers Together

Sometimes if we don’t know how to teach something but we want our children to learn a subject we can go through it together. This is something that many people don’t like to do because they have to admit they know nothing about it. But this encourages independent learning but also discussion. Our children need to find answers by themselves on occasion rather than just having us teach them.

 

Take Your Time Planning The Lessons

If you want to teach something you know nothing about but you feel you can’t get a handle on the subject, perhaps you need more time. You may very well feel that you haven’t got the opportunity to do enough in-depth planning. But if you really want to get a handle on a subject, this is what you need to do. Over preparing means that you will have the opportunity to appreciate the subject. And while your children can learn it alongside you, this could encourage autonomy with your children but also make sure that when you prepare the lessons you do more than is necessary.

 

Learning to teach something you know nothing about is arguably one of the most difficult things you can ever do. But when our children need to learn specific subjects, especially right now, we can use this to our advantage. Encouraging them to learn things by themselves isn’t just about throwing them into the deep end but if you can both work together it gives you both the opportunity to learn things from a different perspective. In fact, you may find that your children will learn things better because of a wide variety of approaches.
