10 Top Wii Games for Your Kids

Buying video games for kids can be a tricky affair. They can't be too easy, or it'll be a waste of money. Ditto if they're too hard. They can't be too violent, or you'll end up nursing bruises as life imitates art... and they can't be too cutesy, or they'll have absolutely no cool factor and therefore no interest! Today we list 10 of the best Wii games for kids 3 and over, to help keep them occupied but not hyped, happy but not too rambunctious!

1. Animal Crossing: City Folk
If your kids haven't quite developed the response speed necessary to play many video games, they'll love Animal Crossing's gentle and leisurely style of play.

2. Active Life: Outdoor Challenge
Everyone, from about age 2, will find some games that they can play within this Wii game. The mat is included - so what you see on the price tag is what you get!

3. Go Diego Go: Great Dinosaur Rescue
This game is just like an episode of Go Diego Go... and conveniently aimed at the same age level! It is easy and intuitive enough for 3 year olds to play.

4. Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the Snow Princess
Just like the 'boy' version, Go Diego Go, Dora Saves the Snow Princess game is simple enough for kids about age 3 and up to play.

5. A Boy and His Blob
The little kid needs to help the alien blob get back to his home planet in this game, which is simple enough for primary school aged kids.

6. Super Mario Bros for the Wii
The Super Mario version for Nintendo 64 brought the game out of the primary school realms and into tween and teenagerdom. This version brings it back to the kids - 2D, sidescrolling action and plenty of nice easy levels.

7. Boom Blox Bash Party
What kid could possibly resist the thrill of knocking over stack after stack of blocks... especially when there are no older brothers or sisters to yell at them and non parents will tell them not to? Good for both younger and older kids.

8. Sim Animals: Africa
All kids are entranced by lions and tigers and bears (oh my!), and in this Wii game they get to actually interact with them. First you have to help the animal, then it will help you within the game. Good life lessons!

9. Cars Race-o-rama
Little boys especially will love the fact that they can control the Disney Pixar Cars without the frustratingly necessary fine motor skills of ordinary racing games. Good graphics compared to other Wii games, also.

10. Ni Hao, Kai Lan: Super Game Day
An amazingly cute character, playing games that are suitable for four and five year olds... and even some determined 3 year olds! These are mini-games, so the challenges are fairly easy to surmount.

Bonus: Wii Sports Resort
If you have a Wii, and you have kids, there is no excuse for not having the Wii Sports Resort game There are games to suit just about every member of the family - even parents that 'aren't into video games' will find a use for this Wii game!

Five Areas That You Need to Simplify to Improve Your Life

Life can seem so complicated. There are so many demands on your time and energy that you're not able to get everything you want to get done in your day. Look into your own life for the simplest solutions so that you un-complicate your life.

Here are five areas that you can simplify:

1. Your work environment
We spend a lot of our time in our work environment and if you have so much clutter in your work environment, designate one day per week to clear everything up and keep to that schedule. Get rid of things that are just distracting you from doing your best work. Don't have work scattered at different places throughout your home either and try to consolidate everything you need to do your best work in one spot. The key is to simplify your work and work environment so that you are not distracted and overwhelmed. Don't make work overly complicated when it doesn't have to be.

2. Your relationships
Don't make your relationships with others so complicated. If you have people in your life that are causing you a lot of drama, then stop associating with them. Tell them that you need some time to yourself and then concentrate on your own life. Some people just suck out all our energy and don't give anything back. Stop trying to solve everyone else's problems and concentrate on your own.

3. Your home environment
Is your home environment full of clutter? Go through each room and see what you can sell, give away or donate so that you are surrounded by things that you truly love. Having a simple home environment that gives you a feeling of joy and happiness can make a huge difference in your life. Don't make things so complicated - you don't need all the latest home entertainment gadgets and doodads.

4. Your thinking
Life doesn't have to be so complicated and taken so seriously. Take it easy on yourself and just do the best that you can, with what you have, and where you are. Develop the mindset that you are going to try new things in life and accept what happens. Don't complicate things needlessly as everything in life can be a learning opportunity. Accept yourself and others as they are and give up your high standards.

5. Your finances
Simplify your finances using automation. Automate everything you can - automate your savings, monthly contributions, bill payments, etc. Don't make your finances complicated by various accounts spread out over several financial institutions. Simplify and consolidate your finances. Remember the simplest financial advice of spending less money than you earn and investing the difference. Don't make your finances more complicated than that - just spend less than you earn.
Change what needs to be changed so that your life is not so complicated and enjoy the simple things in life.

3 Rules for Success in Your Life!

Becoming successful can be a difficult task, but do you have what it takes to be successful in your life (no matter in which aspect), but don't know how or where to start?
I'm going to share with you the three elements that a successful person has.
  1. Proactive. Successful people are the most proactive people found on earth. They do not wait for opportunity to drop from the sky. In fact, they are the ones who cease the opportunity once they see one. Even if they do not see one, they create. One example to give is Alvin Phang, one of Singapore's famous blogger who made it in his career. What he does is, he always gives free and quality workshop about blogging, and after which, encourage people to join his two day seminar. Without him promoting these free workshop through newspaper and internet, I'm sure the attendance of his seminar will not be as great.
  2. An Ending Result In Mind. These people know and have "seen" the outcome in whatever they do. A famous quote in the bible, "as a man thinketh, so is he", is how you can program your mind to be. If you think that you are going to fail your exam even before it started, then most likely you will see the outcome that you've expected.
  3. Perseverance. Most successful people failed in their career, their school, for at least once. You may have read different people who started their internet marketing business, for example, that they've purchased products upon products, sign up courses after courses, but haven't seen success. But they persevere, continued to try and error. They made it because of endless tries (you all know Albert Einstein's story, don't you?)
Having said that, we must also not let difficulties and challenges get in our way to give up. If you feel that you are facing some barriers and challenges, do not led yourself to self-pity and blame others. Instead, motivate yourself again by saying "I can do it", "everything is possible" many times until you are ready to move on.

Good Luck!

How to be More Positive in Life

Is your life filled with negative thoughts and ideas? Are you fed up of losing out in life? If so you need to make some changes and fast. By turning your negative thoughts into positive thoughts you can make the change. By focusing on the positives you will have more success in life and in everything that you do.
You may not even be aware of the amount of negativity that seeps into your life on a daily basis. It comes from TV, from people who interact with and from the voice inside your own head.
The first step in replacing the negatives is to actually become aware of them. Listen to what you are saying. Is it negative or positive? When you find yourself saying negative things, stop, and turn them around into something positive if you can. It is your choice how you see things in life so why not choose to see only the positives. You will be surprised at what it can do.
You should start by cutting down on the amount of news you watch and listen to. Nearly everything on the news today is negative so why are you allowing this negativity into your life? If you watch the news first thing everyday you are starting you day on a negative vibration. Why start the day off badly when you don't have to?
You can try replacing the news with uplifting music or watching something positive and uplifting on the TV. Reading books is another great way to help you absorb positive information. Look for success stories if you want to make a change in your business life. Just by reading their successes you will start to feel more empowered and positive and you will start to take action.
Another way to remove negativity from your life is to limit the amount of TV you watch. Even if you are not engrossed in the program you are watching your subconscious mind will be taking in the messages.
If there are a lot of negative people in your life this is going to be a problem. You should remove them from your life because you don't need them. This is easier said than done but try to at least limit the time you spend with these people. Find positive people to interact with so that you feel good. If your partner is generally negative your positivity will rub off so stay upbeat when you are around them and try not to let them bring you down.
The last and probably the most important place to look when it come to negativity is to yourself. Most of us, although we don't realize it, generate negative self talk all day long. The mind accepts these thoughts as truths so you need to watch what you are saying about yourself and your life. You need to start focusing on the positive aspects of you. What do you like about yourself? What are the things you are most proud of?
You can use visualization and affirmations to help with positivity. Give yourself credit for all the things you do right each day and try not to focus on any of the negative things that may have occurred. End your day by taking the time to list five positive things that happened. You will be surprised at how this affects your sleep and your mood the next morning.
By replacing the negatives in your life with positives you will not only make yourself feel better but you will make your life better too. You will start to focus on the good things and by placing your attention on these you will be drawing more good things into your life. This is how the Law of Attraction works and by being positive you can make it work for you.

How to Simply Simplify Your Life

It's kind of funny how people get when they decide that they need to simplify their life. Instead of figuring out an easy and relaxed way to do this, they freak out over it. They make all sorts of massive lists, all sorts of pie charts and Venn diagrams. They read thirty books on the subject, and eventually end up complicating their life ten fold in their attempt to simplify it. Think about it this way- doesn't it make sense that a system that will effectively help you simplify your life will be, well, simple?

The first easy step towards effectively simplifying your life is sitting down and making the smallest list possible about what you find to be most important in your life. Don't do this on your computer. A txt or word document is potentially infinite in size, and this will make it possible to make a massive list, or to use a complicated process to create your list. Instead, just take a regular piece of paper (either ruled or computer sheets) and fold it up a couple of times. Ideally, you want to only give yourself to write five things down. Figure out what the top five commitments are, the five most important factors in your life are. Think about what you value, think about what makes you most happy to spend your time on, think about what helps you grow and move forward in your life. Figuring out your priorities is the most important thing to do.

Once you know what your priorities are, subtract one from the list. Go through, figure out what's least important to you, and then remove it from the list. Chances are there's at least one item on your list that you put down there because you feel obligated to rank it as a top priority, even if it brings you neither joy nor progress in your life. Don't kid yourself, and cut the emotional hold it has on you now by removing it from your list. You will not have a mostly accurate list of what's most important in your life. Focus on these things to the exclusion of everything else. Do what you need to so that you can pay your bills and what not, but do the minimum to fulfill your obligations and the maximum to pursue your priorities.

Now that you've made an emotional and intellectual commitment to that which really matters to you in your life, you need to make it a physical reality. Go through your life and remove those things that don't contribute to your priorities and that aren't needs like earning enough money to fund your life. Clean out your desk, clean out your drawers- clean out your computer desktop your inboxes and your to-do lists. Remove all those things that are simply weighing you down and doing nothing for what really is important to you. Just purge those things in your life that will continuously be associated with unimportant aspects of your life. For those items and folders that are related to your financial and other necessary obligations, put them out of sight when you're not using them. For everything else, make sure what you see at all times has a positive association.

Now that you've decided what's important and cleared out space for it in your life, I'm going to make one last suggestion. Look over your list of priorities. If one of them is having a fulfilling social life, then great. You need to be with people to be happy in your life, you can't just be an focused goal machine at all times. If enjoyable human interaction is nowhere on the list, then remove the least important thing remaining on your list and replace it with leaving your house and enjoying your life with people you love.
