How to avoid child stress during the war?

In such a difficult time, it is very important for parents to choose the right approach to the child and help to survive this period. After all, children are very sensitive to various events, they experience the same as adults, and understand everything. They need support and advice, they need hugs and love.

  • Don’t forget to communicate with your child. Talk about everything and try to get the child to tell you about everything: their feelings, their thoughts and views, their experiences. Talk about what’s going on. Don’t be fooled. They must trust you!
  • Teach your teenager all the necessary things: where to look for verified information, how to save yourself and your loved ones, how to act in certain situations.
  • Demonstrate reliability and confidence. The child should feel that you will protect and not offend her. The army is strong and we will win!
  • Play a variety of games with your child and do soothing exercises to help your child cope with stress. You can sculpt from plasticine, outline a circle of security around yourself, tear paper into small pieces, imagine and dream a lot. A very cool game is called “Breathe in the cloud”, which calms the child very well. You need to imagine that you inhale a cloud and exhale with a sound, you can with a thunderstorm or lightning, stomping your feet… Also, you need to draw a lot, play board games, play words… And most importantly, in all games you need to participate parents with children. That they feel supported and resisted.

  • Do not put too much pressure on the eyeballs on both sides to relax the eyes a little
  • Rub the tip of your nose
  • Focus the child’s attention on breathing. Fold one hand like a shuttle and cover your lips with it, put the other hand on your stomach. When the child exhales, the hand should go down to the chest, and when inhaling – rise to the mouth.
  • Don’t forget to lubricate your lips and rinse your mouth

Stress is a certain reaction of the body to stimuli provoked by a certain situation. It has a negative effect on the human body, takes away all energy and deprives of inspiration and motivation for anything.

Studies show that stress has the most negative effect on children under 10 years of age. That is why parents need to notice the manifestations of stress in time and help to get rid of them as soon as possible.

Children respond differently to stress depending on self-management skills and individual qualities. Some children may immediately say that they are worried, while others will be silent like guerrillas.

There may be disorders and changes in the child’s body such as hypertension, cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, headaches and migraines, respiratory diseases, ulcers, respiratory problems.

Spend more time with your child, talk and hug. Give her support, protection and distraction.

The best solution for rehabilitation is to go to a child psychologist. Remember that a child is a very big world that is not so easy for parents to know. They are different! That is why a psychologist will choose the right keys and help restore happiness in the eyes of your children.

  • You can still use a stone that you need to hold in your hand, crush and count its angles.
  • If you are in a crowd, count, for example, how many people in green jackets you see. When you start searching with your eyes, your focus shifts and you calm down.
  • If possible, consult a psychologist who will offer you some techniques to fight.

Don’t forget about: healthy and complete sleep, balanced diet, daily physical activity and walks in the fresh air, communication with family and positive emotions. By following these basic rules, you will help your body to survive this difficult time.

The symptom of a phantom siren is a state when you hear sirens in complete silence, which in fact do not exist. You are viewing the message, looking in the window It seemed. These are the sirens of your anxiety.

War is a powerful trauma for each of us, whether you are military or civilian. When the trauma is too severe and the psyche cannot “digest” it, derealization can occur.

Discuss stress with loved ones; wash your face or hands with cold water; sit down and list the objects you see in the room; touch the body, it is important to return yourself through the body to reality.

  • Close basic needs

Try to fall asleep if possible; eat something warm and make hot tea; drink a glass of water; hug someone nearby; leave yourself time during the day without news and phone, asking your loved ones to call in advance in case of alarm.

  • Slow down

Movements; reaction; conversations when there is no real threat.

  • Affects the level of anxiety

Uncertainty of the future; lack of control over the situation.

  • Solutions
  1. Agree with neighbors and friends on how to act in an emergency
  2. Make shifts
  3. Write a step-by-step plan if the alarm is real
  4. Share responsibilities with loved ones so that everyone knows exactly who is turning off the gas, who is taking things
  5. Arrange the necessary things in places to find easily
  6. Separately prepare the clothes to be worn during the evacuation to the shelter
  • Conclusion
  • As long as stress remains chronic, we are all trapped in derealization
  • Our psyche will cope with this, if at least a little to cover the basic needs
  • Now we minimize the symptoms, or stay in shape and react to the situation

Emotional state of a child during war events. How to save it? Dialogue between parents and children should be!

Very good advice was given by the psychologist of the Kyiv maternity hospital “Leleka” Natalia Myroshnychenko:

  1. Make allegories with favorite fairy tales.

When you gather your child in a shelter, explain that it is a game. Each hero must pass certain tests for courage and the ability to endure something unpleasant. You can recall some of your child’s favorite fairy tales or stories and recall the trials that were there. This will help the little ones to start the adaptation mechanism.

  1. Invent new fantastic characters.

Be in the shelter, turn on your child’s imagination. Let her imagine something colorful, strange and positive with you. Some hero who will protect her in stressful moments and will be her friend. This way you can reduce the impact of derivation from confined space.

  1. Tell your children about the angels they protect.

When loud explosions and shots are heard, imagine with your little one that you are protected by angels with big white wings. They will never give you lunch and help our heroes protect us. This way we will help the kids feel safe.

  1. Draw pictures for our defenders.

Children also want to help. One of the ideas is a picture for a soldier with patriotic and encouraging expressions. Collect them and hand them over with food and clothing. This way the child will see and feel that she is also doing something important.

  1. Physical games, breathing exercises and training according to plan.

In this way we help to stabilize the body’s mental system after disorientation by martial law.

Don’t ignore these tips! Children feel and experience everything no less than you. Help them survive this time and stay healthy!

What should you do during the war when you have children?

  • First of all, you need to minimize the time of watching the news with the child and increase the time for hugs, chats. Communicate more with her, try to be as honest as possible and tell the truth.
  • Do not tire of telling your child that you are there, that you are protecting and caring for them. She should know that she is not alone.
  • When you go to the shelter, allow your child to take a favorite toy or important thing. This will create an extra sense of security.
  • Allow children to relieve stress in a constructive way (these can be a variety of games and techniques): you can tear or crumple the paper; playing “paper” snowballs; you can “box” a soft pillow; offer a shout without a shout: ask the child to try to shout, but without a voice (volume); “Screaming cup” or “screaming bag”: you can shout, but only by directing this cry into a bag or cup; games with water (water can be poured from tank to tank) and sand.

Remember, children trust you. After all, parents are a support for children, they are the most important and closest people. Take care of each other! Because together – we are a force !!!

Fabulous lakes of the Carpathians

Lakes of the Carpathians, Skhidnytsia

Very often, especially in the stifling summer heat, we want to escape from the noisy bustle of big cities and go to a place where it is easy to breathe, where it smells of flowering herbs, and birdsong echoes with the rustle of leaves and needles. And there is no better place than the majestic Carpathians. It is a protected area, famous for its pristine beauty, pristine mountains, emerald forests, stormy waterfalls, flowering meadows and the cleanest ponds. But, of course, you can most enjoy the freshness and coolness near the sky-blue lakes of the Carpathians, which locals affectionately call “sea eyes”. Most of them are located in the range from 1400 to 1800 meters above sea level, and the history of their creation dates back to the Ice Age.

In addition to natural reservoirs in the Carpathians, there are many beautiful rivers, artificial lakes and ponds, which are created on the territory of medical and recreational complexes and recreation centers.

These lakes provide an opportunity to swim and sunbathe in summer, as well as fishing. Thus, in the village of Opaka near Skhidnytsia there is a trout, which can be used for trout or sturgeon fishing. This fish for you can be cooked immediately on the grill, hot-smoked, fried in oil or stuffed. Everything is your choice.

The most famous lakes in the Carpathians

Of course, most tourists in the Carpathians are attracted by popular and famous lakes. Among them are the following:

  1. Crane (Dead) Lake. Located in the Skole Beskydy National Nature Park near the village of Kamyanka, Skole district, Lviv region. It is characterized by a high content of hydrogen sulfide, which is why it got its name – Dead Lake. In addition, although the water in it is clear, but because of the dark bottom it is also called Black. Rare plants grow on the lake: marsh cranberries and aspens, and on top it is covered with branches, grass and tree roots. Near the lake there is a spring of mineral water “Naftusya” and the famous Kamyanets waterfall. And the path that stretches past the lake leads to Mount Klyuch with a magnificent panoramic view.
  2. Lake Nesamovite. Located within the Nadvirna district of Ivano-Frankivsk region. This is one of the highest alpine lakes in the Carpathians (1750 meters above sea level). The lake lies in a glacial depression on the eastern slopes of Mount Turkul of the Montenegrin ridge in the Carpathian National Park. It is 88 meters long, 45 meters wide and 1.5 meters deep.
  3. Lake Maricheika. Located within the Verkhovyna district of Ivano-Frankivsk region on the territory of the Chornohora massif. In the northwest of the lake you can see one of the highest Carpathian peaks – Mount Pip Ivan, 2022 meters high. The lake itself is located at an altitude of 1510 meters above sea level and has a very small depth – 0.8 meters. It is surrounded by a forest of mountain pine and spruce, filled with groundwater and springs at the foot of the mountain slope.
  4. Lake Brebeneskul. The highest mountain lake, which is located at an altitude of 1801 meters surrounded by the peaks of the Montenegrin ridge Brebeneskul and Gutin Tomnatyk, located in the Rakhiv district of the Transcarpathian region. It stretches for 134 meters, has a depth of 3 meters and is very cold. Its temperature does not exceed 13 degrees even in summer. The water is crystal clear, slightly mineralized, and the bottom is covered with gray silt.
  5. Lake Lebedin. It is located in the tract on the southern peak of the Pokutsko-Bukovynian Carpathians (Kosiv region) of the Hutsulshchyna National Park. Located at an altitude of 650 meters above sea level, 28 meters deep and up to one hectare. Rare plants grow on the lake area: spring primrose, fern, beech fegopteris and others. In order to admire the beautiful scenery, tourists come to the tract Lebedyn even from foreign countries.

The deepest lake in the Carpathians

Nevertheless, the largest and deepest lake in the Ukrainian Carpathians is the Legendary Sea Eye – Synevyr. It is located on the rocks of the Gorgany massif in the Mizhhirya district of Transcarpathia. This majestic natural monument was created by a landslide 10,000 years ago, located at an altitude of about 1000 meters above sea level and has a depth of 24 meters. The average area of ​​the water reservoir of Lake Synevyr is 4-5 hectares.

The fauna and flora around the lake are very diverse. Protected area in which the law protects about 10 thousand plants, 43 species of mammals and 91 species of rare birds. There are many observation decks and various decorative ornaments, and in the middle of the lake, like the pupil of the eye, there is a small island. Hence the second name of Synevir – Sea Eye. On the island you can see the majestic mahogany sculpture “Blue and Faith”, which is 13 meters high and weighs about 30 tons. It is associated with many legends about the unhappy love of two lovers – Vira and Xenia (Blue).

There are many mineral water deposits on the territory of Synevyr National Park, which treat the gastrointestinal tract and musculoskeletal system. At the camp site, located on the shores of the lake, you can spend the night, taste the national Hungarian soup – bograch, listen to mountain musicians, buy souvenirs. Not far from the lake you can visit the only Museum of Forest and Rafting in Europe. The All-Ukrainian festival “Trembitas Call to Synevyr” is held annually on the lake.

Lakes in the Carpathians: where to swim?

The nature of the Carpathian Mountains comes to life in the summer months, endows us with berries and mushrooms, springs are filled with healing water, numerous lakes, rivers and waterfalls refresh and invigorate all who are not afraid of cool mountain ponds. Most natural lakes are located high in the mountains, some in hard-to-reach places, natural areas and although they have a small depth, the water in them is mostly quite cool. Even in the deep lake Synevyr water warms up only 1-2 meters.

Therefore, only real desperate people will be able to swim in them. It is better to use less extreme places for swimming and sunbathing. For example, the famous resort of Bukovel in Ivano-Frankivsk region boasts a beautiful artificial lake 750 meters long. Here on the beach equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas longer than 2 km you can comfortably relax, ride catamarans, water skis, jet skis, or book a scuba diving under the supervision of an experienced instructor. Also, in summer you can swim in the ponds near the famous waterfalls (Zhenetsky Guk waterfall in Nadvirna district), while admiring the water falling from a height of 15 meters, and relax on the banks of many Carpathian rivers (TAORKarpaty Resort & Spa ****, which near Skhidnytsia can offer you a comfortable equipped beach on the banks of the river Stryi). For those who want to recover and be treated at the same time, you should think about visiting the thermal lakes in Kosino, salt lakes in Solotvino or the healing springs of Maramorosh in Transcarpathia.

Summer vacation in the Carpathians is diverse and for all tastes. So, do not waste time – book a place, relax and gain mountain energy, strength and health.

Malanka Holiday: traditions and customs of the Generous Evening in Ukraine

On January 13, on the eve of the Old New Year, Ukraine traditionally celebrates the holiday of Malanka or Generous Evening. Its name comes from the Venerable Melania the Roman, whose day of remembrance falls on this day.

And it is called generous in honor of the main dish – Generous Kuta. In addition, there is no fasting on January 13, so on Christmas Eve the table is rich in various meat products and hearty dishes such as jellies, blood sausages, sausages, pancakes, dumplings, pies. Our ancestors believed that on this holiday a generous and rich table will provide them with prosperity and well-being for the whole year.

Customs and traditions for Christmas Eve

Traditionally, on Christmas Eve, the whole family gathers at a rich holiday table, and it is important to reconcile with neighbors and between family members to celebrate the Old New Year in peace and harmony.

The house should be cleaned and all things cleaned. In addition, on the feast of Malanka it is customary to dress up as animals and folk characters. After sunset, the girls gathered in a group and gave generously. They disguised themselves as mythical creatures – Malanka, Vasily and their friends. Malanka should wear a wreath with ribbons, a necklace, various jewelry, and Vasyl should wear boots, a dressing gown and trousers. The boys have their own traditions, they “lead Malanka”, and among the fairy-tale characters you can find a goat, a crane, gypsies and of course Malanka, in which one of the unmarried boys disguises himself. In these costumes, generous people go from house to house with Christmas carols, entertaining passers-by with dances and various jokes. Also, on this holiday it was customary for girls to divination in order to find out their destiny. While the girls were divining, the boys stole doors and gates from the house. Then the owner, in order to return the loss, had to expose the boys to Mogorich.

According to the accepted custom, the holiday of Malanka lasts until the morning. At dawn, it was customary to burn at the crossroads sheaves of straw (so-called “grandparents”), which stand in homes from Christmas Eve to the Old New Year. Then the boys and girls lit large fires and jumped over them to cleanse themselves from evil forces. In the morning, the boys went to each house to congratulate the hosts on the New Year and sowed the grain of the house with wishes of prosperity, peace and prosperity to each family. This tradition has survived in Ukraine to this day.

In Britain, it is customary to exchange greeting cards and arrange masquerades in fairy costumes. In Japan, the New Year’s bell rings 108 times, as it is believed that people are prone to the six greatest sins (greed, anger, frivolity, envy, indecision and stupidity), each of which still has 18 shades.
