Kid going off to college? Here’s how to shop for their bedding needs




The moment you have been preparing for – and dreading in equal measure – is finally here. Your child is flying to another city or country to join college. The moment of parting is still a few days away, and your days are taken up in a flurry of preparing your child for the move, getting their paperwork and baggage in order.

Amidst the rush of preparing your child for new experiences, you must be hard at work, reminding them to eat their meals on time, not rely too much on junk food, and keep healthy habits; chief among them being to sleep well. After all, in the rush of new friendships, assignments and newfound independence, it’s necessary to take the time to recharge. The best way to guarantee this, of course, is by arranging the right kind of bedding for them, so they can be comfortable while resting.

You’ve been meaning to buy new bedding for your child for their fresh new start. The choices are immense, but you can’t overload their trunk.      You need to ensure they have      just enough to use comfortably without running out of their stocks. There must be extras so that they don’t have to think about laundry day and get stressed about it. You also need to buy bedding that will last all the years of their college without the need to buy more. To achieve these goals, here’s      how you can shop for what they need without wasting too much time:

*What to keep in mind as you shop for bed linen.

The choices in bedding today are vast, and it’s easy to get lost in the various collections. That is why it’s important to make a note of a few things before you begin your shopping expedition. The main point is to make note of the weather conditions of where your child is headed. If it is a tropical location, where the temperatures run on the higher side, you can look at dohars, bedsheets with moisture-wicking technology and more. but if it’s a colder area, it’s better to consider comforters and quilts of a thicker consistency. It’s also a good idea to invest in temperature-regulating bedsheets and quick-drying towels.

Since kids are often impatient about making their beds, it’s also a good idea to consider fitted bedsheets, since they are very convenient to use. Additionally, you should also consult the colour theory and pick the bed linen accordingly. For example, if your child is worried about leaving home for the first time, get cheery colours like yellow or orange that will keep them feeling positive.

* Online shopping is faster and more cost-effective. At a time when the Coronavirus continues to rage around the country, it is also safer than going to an offline store. Besides, there is no time to run to the stores to buy what you need. While it feels good to feel the product before purchase, you can be assured that the products you see in the offline stores will be readily available in the SPACES online portals as well. There is even the added advantage of discovering exciting deals and offers for all your favourite bedding sets with the convenience of doorstep delivery and multiple payment options.

Start with bedsheets in single sizes, with matching pillow covers and comforters. Single comforters are best for a single bed – double comforters will be too large both for their bag and bed. Don’t insist on your child taking their kids’ comforter from home to college, unless they don’t mind doing so. About three or four bedsheets and two single comforters should suffice.

* We suggest looking at comparable brands having similar products on offer before making a choice. This is easily done online – you can open multiple tabs for different online stores and compare the products on various factors: price, size, fabric, pattern, thread count, etc. You should of course pay special attention to the quality of the bedding you’re looking to buy. Afterall, the other factors pale in comparison to getting a product that suits your needs best and lasts for a longer time. This is where the product range from SPACES shines bright. They include bed and bath linen made from organic cotton and through sustainable processes, so you can rest assured that you’re buying the finest for your child. These products also have the added advantage of becoming softer with each wash, making them a great investment for the long run.

It’s also important to check the reviews posted by other buyers, as it will give you a better idea of the actual usage of the bed linen in question. This will tell you which brand is trustworthy and has the best bedding for your needs.      You can also check    probable delivery dates from these websites, since you are already strapped for time.

* Check on delivery and payment options.

Since you have less time to shop and you still need to help your child get their belongings together and pack their trunk, you must ensure that the bed and bath linen you buy are delivered to your address well in time for their departure. Check the estimated delivery time for the product by keying in your area PIN code in the website’s designated field. The site checks the code and tells you if delivery is possible, and the estimated time for delivery. You might also check if it would be faster to pick up the purchase from the brands nearest offline store. We recommend using digital payment modes to pay instead of paying cash at your doorstep in the interest of your safety.

We hope you have a pleasant experience preparing your little one for their future ahead. With the right bedding, they’ll be on their way to a well-rested college experience, so they can fill their days exploring and learning more. Keep the above points in mind as you carry on with your shopping and visit SPACES for the finest selection of bed and bath linen, that’s easy to care for.

The Ultimate Guide to the Essential Social Skills in Business




Effective communication and strong relationships are essential for success in the workplace. One factor that can greatly influence these qualities is emotional intelligence, often abbreviated as EQ. EQ refers to the ability to identify, understand, and manage one’s own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. Research has shown that individuals with high levels of EQ are better equipped to handle stress, communicate effectively, and work collaboratively with others (Chamorro-Premuzic & Sanger, 2016).

Research has consistently shown that emotional intelligence (EQ) is an important predictor of job performance and success in the workplace. EQ is comprised of a set of skills that allow individuals to recognize, understand, and regulate their own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. In addition, individuals with high EQ are better able to communicate effectively, build relationships, and navigate complex social situations. As a result, they are often viewed as effective leaders and collaborators, and are more likely to achieve their personal and professional goals.

In fact, a number of studies have demonstrated the significant impact that EQ has on job performance and success. For example, one study of 85 upper-level managers found that those with higher EQ scores were rated as more effective leaders by their subordinates (Law, Wong, & Song, 2004). Another study of 151 employees found that those with higher EQ were more likely to be promoted within their organization over a five-year period (Carmeli, Brueller, & Dutton, 2009). These findings highlight the importance of EQ in the workplace and suggest that developing these skills can lead to significant benefits for both individuals and organizations.

According to a study conducted by TalentSmart, a leading provider of EQ assessments, EQ is responsible for 58% of success in all job types (Bradberry & Greaves, 2009). In contrast, IQ only accounts for about 4% of success in the workplace. This suggests that EQ is a crucial skill set for individuals in any professional field. Fortunately, EQ is a skill that can be developed and honed over time with practice and awareness.

There are several key components of EQ that are particularly important for success in the workplace. These include: 

Self-Regulation: This refers to your capacity to recognize and control your emotions. Sometimes treating them when they arise may be necessary. Understanding how to manage your anger is essential. However, it can also cover how to control the feelings you’ll experience.

Self-Awareness: This implies recognizing and understanding your own feelings. Do noisy places make you nervous? Do other people talking over you make you angry? Knowing these truths about yourself shows that you are working on your self-awareness. Being conscious of yourself is necessary for this phase, which can be more complex than it sounds.

Socialization: This category focuses on your capacity to manage social interactions and direct relationships. It doesn’t entail dominating others but knowing how to work with others to achieve your goals. This could entail presenting your ideas to coworkers, leading a team, or resolving a personal disagreement.

Motivation: Strong motivators include external forces like money, status, or suffering. Internal motivation, however, plays a significant role in Goleman’s concept. By doing so, you demonstrate your ability to control your cause and initiate or continue initiatives of your own volition rather than in response to external demands.

Empathy: It’s equally critical to be sensitive to others’ feelings. This may entail learning to identify different emotional states in individuals — for example, can you tell the difference between someone at ease and someone anxious? — but it also requires comprehension of how other people may react to their current situation. Empathy is one of the essential traits in business and business leadership.

A thought leader in this space, Michael Ventura has built a career advising organizations on the importance of emotional intelligence in the workplace. In his book, Applied Empathy, Ventura highlights the value of empathy in business and provides strategies for developing and applying this skill set. With two decades of experience as a leader, facilitator, and educator, Ventura’s work has made impact in with prestigious institutions such as Princeton University and the United Nations as well as corporate clients such as Google and Nike.

Through his work, Ventura advises leaders to focus on the development of EQ in order to help individuals improve their communication, collaboration, and leadership skills, ultimately leading to greater success in the workplace. Experts like Ventura continue to support the growing body of research on the value of EQ in business, and the evidence that organizations who invest in the EQ of their teams help to create a more empathetic and successful professional environment.

And it’s worth noting that EQ isn’t just important for individual success in the workplace, but also for overall organizational success. A study by the Center for Creative Leadership found that EQ was a better predictor of success than IQ or technical skills in the workplace, and that teams with higher levels of EQ tend to be more effective and productive (Boyatzis, Goleman, & Rhee, 1999). By cultivating a culture of empathy and emotional intelligence, organizations can improve their overall performance and create a more positive work environment for their employees.

In conclusion, emotional intelligence is a crucial component of success in the workplace, and individuals and organizations alike should prioritize the development of these skills. The ones that do not only develop a leading edge in their category, but also become a meaningful place to work for their teams. And in today’s rapidly changing talent landscape, the retention of highly capable, emotionally intelligent leaders is one of the greatest keys to unlocking success.
