Mindful self-compassion training

Thu, Jan 25, 2018

Our evolved brain is more concerned with our safety and obtaining resources than with our happiness. This can lead to a narrowing of our perception. For example, if while shopping you are received well in five shops, but the sales assistant in the sixth shop is unpleasant, what will you remember about your shopping trip later that evening, the five pleasant sales assistants or the unpleasant one?

Rick Hanson, an eminent neuropsychologist, describes how this negativity bias of the brain makes it like Velcro for bad experience and Teflon for good experience. Furthermore this negativity can often be seen in our attitudes of self-criticism, which we believe leads to our improved performance. However a harsh self-critical inner voice can undermine our self-confidence and self-esteem and lead to feelings of guilt and shame that chip away at our mental wellbeing.

January consideration for CAO applicants

Thu, Jan 18, 2018

This Saturday January 20 marks the first of the CAO deadlines this year. Applicants are offered a discounted rate of €30 to register until then. After that, the application fee increases to €45 until February 1. It is advisable to register immediately if you have not done so already.

All the CAO actually needs at this stage are personal details, including name, address, phone numbers, disability/specific learning difficulty, email address, and any other qualifications you might have. While this is the time for giving your career choice consideration, some choose to make final decisions after May. Technically there is no problem waiting, however some end up making their choices during the final terms of secondary school when they are already under exam pressure. That is why it is so important to get these decisions right as early as possible. You can still add choices and change your mind between May and June, with the exception of restricted courses.

Travel the world in 2018 with a CELTA/TEFL qualification

Thu, Jan 11, 2018

We often hear people say that life is not a rehearsal, so if you are interested in doing some travelling, changing career, taking early retirement, or learning about other cultures, now is the time. One of the best ways to see the world while at the same time earn some money is by teaching English. "As a teacher of English abroad, you can immediately immerse yourself in a culture and get to know the local people without having to speak the language of that culture," says Mary Grennan, director of International House Galway. "Of course, you will have the opportunity to learn the language too while you’re there, which is wonderful. You can also teach English here in Ireland in a language school or even in your own home — it’s a great cultural education, and great fun too."
