TAGSFlorida Hospital – Apopka Previous articleWhy is April 18th the federal tax deadline this year?Next articleA History of Easter Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply After a lot of soul-searching, she realized that her work-life balance needed some work itself. “I strived so hard to get a position that I thought would make me feel fulfilled,” says Santamaria. Ultimately, that path brought her to a place where she felt more stressed and drained than accomplished. At that point, she knew she had to make a change. “I harnessed my faith and began focusing on how I could use my God-given talents for a greater sense of purpose,” she explains.Santamaria took a leap of faith into a new role as an HR specialist that focused on her God-given strengths in leadership coaching and succession planning.  While this was considered a “step down” in title, it turned out to be the biggest step up that she could have ever imagined.Santamaria shares her top five tips to bring your work and life back into balance.Find your purposeSantamaria sums it up beautifully: “If you are doing what you are meant to do it doesn’t feel like work.” Think about your strengths and what you love to do. When you focus on work that optimizes these things, it just flows naturally into something that you enjoy, not something that stresses you out.When you are harnessing your strengths, you feel energized, happy and positive. Santamaria suggests, “Pay attention to what you feel like after you complete certain tasks.” “Do you feel motivated and accomplished? Or drained and stressed?” If your work aligns with the former, chances are you strike more balance. Recognizing the later can bring you to some revelations that can put you back on track.Find time to do what makes you happyIf you’re doing what you love for work it makes you happy, but you likely enjoy other things too. Whether it’s spending time with family and friends, taking time for yourself, exercising, traveling, reading, or any number of things, whatever it is that makes you happy is something you need to prioritize in your life.For Santamaria, it was blocking out Sundays as her “family day” so that she can look forward to that designated time once per week. “It is important to set limits in your life and with your time,” she suggests. When you set limits, you become more productive and mindful. For example, if you know Sundays are your family days, you are more inclined to get your other tasks (both work and personal) completed on the other days. One way that Santamaria does this is to calendar time for everything that she wants to accomplish in a week. Her calendar prioritizes what is important to her and includes her goals.Manage your time wellBeing diligent and organized reduces stress because you are taking ownership of your time and the tasks that you need to accomplish. This is true for your work and personal life. Santamaria suggests adopting a master to-do list that combines both work and personal tasks. “It’s really hard to separate work and other tasks when it comes to your time,” she says. “If you work from one master to-do list and prioritize all tasks based on your deadlines, you will have a better grasp on where you need to spend your time on any given day.”For Santamaria, managing time is also about managing her health. “Having a chronic health condition forces me to set limits and recognize when my time needs to shift towards taking care of myself,” she adds. “Living with Lupus, I have to be diligent yet flexible- it’s definitely a delicate balance, but knowing when to slow down and take time for my health is an exercise of setting limits that are imperative for my overall health, wellbeing and work productivity,” she concludes.Set weekly goalsGoals shouldn’t just live in business plans; they can be a part of your work and personal life. If you set goals for yourself – big and small – and incorporate them into your schedule you will have a greater likelihood of achieving them and feeling accomplished. “Always have a target, and incorporate your goals into whatever tool you use to plan your time,” suggests Santamaria.Technology can assist you with this exercise. Using digital calendars and other task management and productivity tools can keep track of where you spend your time, help you manage tasks and track and adjust your weekly goals.Be gentle with yourself and othersRemember, the key word we’re talking about is balance. To have balance, you must be flexible. If you’re finding that your work-life balance is out of kilter, take a moment be gentle on yourself. Take a deep breath and focus on solutions to bring it back into harmony. Focus on making immediate goals that will help you achieve that balance. Maybe they even include implementing some of the tips above.Santamaria explains, “If I don’t meet my goal for a week, I recognize that I tried really hard, and I even celebrate that.” “I know how to adjust my goals for the following week to achieve it, and if I do, I celebrate it.” They key is to focus on what you are accomplishing, and less on what you are not.Today, busier than ever, Santamaria is an inspiration. With a lot of hard work and guidance, she has the career that she loves, she is a public speaker at the Florida Hospital Speaker’s Bureau, runs her own company, and has time for the things in life that make her happy. Implementing strategies to manage her time and life brought a beautiful balance that makes her feel blessed, happy, accomplished and fulfilled in each of her roles – both at work and personally – each day.

DeSantis signs legislation to help improve early childhood literacy and kindergarten…

first_img By Danielle J. Brown, Florida PhoenixFlorida’s early-education system will see significant changes in hopes of better preparing the state’s youngest learners, as Gov. Ron DeSantis signed two bills from the 2021 legislative session focused on improving pre-kindergarten accountability and early reading skills.DeSantis promised significant benefits for Florida’s students.“If you can make headway here, you will see a positive ripple effect continue through many, many years of these students being in our system,” he said during one of two press conferences on Tuesday.DeSantis was joined by the sponsors of the two bills — Rep. Erin Grall (R), and Rep. Vance Aloupis (R). Both of these bills, HB 419 and HB 7011, received sweeping bipartisan support.The goal of HB 419, Grall’s bill, is to provide greater accountability for Florida’s pre-kindergarten programs and give parents as much information about how their child is progressing as possible. These programs are voluntary because compulsory education begins at age six in Florida.“This policy is all about empowering parents and families and giving parents the information they need — at that critical time in a child’s life — to make the best decisions for their children,” Grall said.Almost half of Florida’s kindergarteners are not ready for that level, state data show, and existing assessments of how a Pre-K student is progressing may not give parents enough time or information to determine whether that student should progress.Under existing law, assessments to determine if a child is ready for kindergarten are taken during the first 30 days of kindergarten. This means that parents may not know that their child is not ready for kindergarten until a month after the student started the school year.And, according to an legislative staff analysis, only 53 percent of kindergarten students were deemed ready for kindergarten based on the Fall 2019 assessments. Grall previously called this data point a “failure” on the part of the Florida Legislature.The new law would have students assessed for kindergarten readiness while they are still in Pre-K, so that struggling students can be identified quicker and can receive additional instruction if needed.Rep. Aloupis argued that Grall’s bill will be “one of the most transformational pieces of policy … in the past few decades of education reform.”Aloupis sponsored the other bill DeSantis signed into law Tuesday, HB 7011.It creates a statewide monitoring program to keep track of how students progress in their academic career from pre-kindergarten through 8th grade, so that schools can identify students who are not performing on grade level for reading and mathematics.Aloupis’s bill also works to bolster reading and literacy skills among Florida’s students with initiatives to intervene with struggling readers. One of these initiatives gives high school students a volunteer opportunity to tutor struggling readers in kindergarten through third grade. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter 3rd grader reading.

The story begins in the East Lake Greenway. It is unimaginable that in Wuhan with a population of more than 10 million, there is a trail that stretches for more than 100 kilometers. It spans large mountains and lakes, through bamboo forests and cherry blossoms, crisscrossing polder fields, and rice paddies. Fortunately, the embarrassment of “Same Imagine of different Cities” finally disappeared on the site. At the intersection of lakes and rivers in Wuhan, the imagination of a landscape city is growing crazily again.Save this picture!In time, of course, East Lake Greenway also connects the site at the entrance of Hou Shanbi Village, Ma Anshan Park. Image © Yumeng ZhuSave this picture!Moving from the yard, it is East Lake. Image © Yumeng ZhuThe Canopy. We can no longer think of how we felt when we first faced the two old houses in the site, because in the winter of 2018, the morning fog of East Lake, the withered remnants of lotus root, and the lush spruce on the side of the village filled all the memories. In the following ten times of running, the sounds of birds and frogs, green bamboos and tender lotus roots, and the fishing nets by the lake in the sunset, are like pieces of puzzles, creating a complete situation for the “Step House”. Undoubtedly, for urbanites trapped in “civilization”, this situation is already attractive enough, and the stigma in our genes makes us want to “return to nature”. However, for us, design is by no means as simple as framed scenery. “The most beautiful scenery is people.” We must not only introduce the landscape but also attract people to make more activities happen here.Save this picture!Or overlook the spruce forest or the lake from the roof courtyard. Image © Yumeng ZhuSave this picture!For the library in the north building, people can watch the bonsai garden on the dining table. Image © Yumeng ZhuIt is a choice that requires courage to use more than half of the indoor area for public activities instead of clearly-priced guest rooms. However, after the completion of the building, the crowds have proved that this is a correct decision. Restricted by rural laws and regulations, the original outline of the building must be maintained for the reconstruction, but its internal space has become very rich.Save this picture!The cool industrial texture and warm wood texture achieved visual coordination.

The design was inspired by the experience of climbing the hills of Wuhan, and it was confirmed by the Song Dynasty landscape painting “A Solitary Temple amid Clearing Peaks“(晴峦萧寺图.circa 960). On the way to climb, pavilions, pavilions, pavilions, huts, and slab bridges appeared on the hills of Chinese artistic conception. Constituted the “Step” and “Terrace” that people stopped and looked around. The ancients called the rolling hills “Lu Hui”, the step house is that It is named after this.Save this picture!The steps are staggered high and low, forming a movement line of “climbing”, enriching the feeling of wandering, and amplifying the sense of space.

People from long-deprived homes have come one after another. What Step House most hopes to incorporate is the rich emotions behind Shining city. The epidemic has caused people to constantly reflect: What is happiness? It’s a simple life, a joyful reunion, it’s even the constant “modern homesickness”.Save this picture!Overlooking the southern hills and from the pond.

A… read more Me and Betty Kay would fight about anything and, if we didn’t have anything to fight about, we’d fight about that.But I didn’t fight on my first day of school because I’d had a real hard time getting there.Betty Kay was a year older and could start first grade. I wasn’t old enough to go school and I primped up and cried when Mama told me. I primped up and cried every time I thought about Betty Kay going to school and leaving me at home. The primping and crying turned into full-blown hissy fits and Mama’s switch that lived on top of the refrigerator wasn’t home much.But, one day, Mama said she had some good news. I could go to school after all. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content By The Penny Hoarder I think Mama decided that she didn’t want to stay at home with me by herself and she paid Mrs. Barney Burnett to let me go.My grandma, Mugi, came from Eufaula on the Greyhound bus to make my school dresses from biddy feed sacks that my other grandmother saved for special things.The day I started to school, Mugi tied the sash on my school dress so tight that it made my tongue stick out and made me have to go to the bathroom, too.Aunt Eleanor came to see me off to school. I saw her and Mugi peeping from behind the curtain to watch Mama and Miss Louise taking me and Betty Kay to get registered for first grade and meet our teacher.Mama whispered a lot to Mrs. Barney Burnett and I hoped she wasn’t telling her bad things about me. Miss Louise did some whispering, too. Then, Mrs. Barney Burnett came and patted me and Betty Kay on our frizzy heads and said she was so proud to have two pretty, sweet little girls in her room.If she hadn’t said that on the day I got registered for school, I would have balled up my fist and punched that ugly, snaggle-toothed, second-grade boys in the nose and knocked another one of his teeth out on my first day of school.Two days later, I wished I had not been a sweet little girl. Then, maybe, Mrs. Barney Burnett would have sent me home. I found out that I wasn’t old enough to go to school. I wanted my Mama.Note: Apologies to Mrs. Marilyn Phillips and Mrs. Eleanor McKeller for my poor grammar. I know better than “busted” and “me and Betty Kay,” I just don’t do better.
