Living in a fast-paced world
“All you teachers ever say is ‘hurry up!’” an innocent Year 1 student remarked one day, little realising that he had just summed up the plight of human beings living in the 21st century. He’s right. In our frenzy to get things done, meet deadlines and pay the bills, everything is in fast-forward mode. If there was ever a time where peace of mind was sought after, it’s now.
People are constantly bombarded with messages from every side, demanding anything and everything of them, and then wonder why they’re falling apart. Yet they never give their minds a break. Background noise has become so normal that people don’t realise how little time they spend listening to nothing at all. However, just like your body physically needs to stop, your mind needs regular breaks from all the commotion around you. Down time. Nothing time.
Noise! Noise! Noise!
“Turn it down!” “You always tell me what to do!” “I’m trying to study!” “It’s not your house!” Music plays a huge part in most teenagers’ lives, but can also be a major point of conflict between parents and their children and between siblings themselves. Everyone is trying to live their life in one space. Everyone has their needs. Tastes differ. Vastly. In the end the family compromises, but nobody is really satisfied; the teenager’s music is not loud enough for him to enjoy, but still too loud for the other family members.
Then it wouldn’t be surprising if children started being diagnosed with “LND – Loud Noise Disorder” in the future or something along those lines. Actually, they’re just kids. They talk, they laugh and yes, shouting is also quite normal for a child. Children haven’t changed. But in our fast-paced world where stress and anxiety are on the rise, many adults are finding it more and more difficult to cope with the racket their children create, no matter how normal it is.
And then there’s the baby. “He just cries every night! I don’t know what to do!” Rachel, a mother of three children under four years old, lived in a three bedroom townhouse. Every night she would put the kids to bed after a busy day of entertaining them, sorting out squabbles and managing the housework. She loved her kids, but admitted that she was very tired and that the only thing she wanted was quiet. Yet, every night she would find herself sitting down and just waiting for the crying to stop.
The benefits of insulation in the home
“Moving to a new, properly insulated house was the best decision we made!” says Rachel. “Now we put the kids to bed at one end of the house and enjoy the peace and quiet in the comfort of our living room at the other end.” She says she’s stopped thinking there’s something wrong with her baby and realises that he just needs to cry a little before he goes to sleep. She says that if you can’t hear it, it’s not there. Anyone for a cup of tea?
