Bubble Therapy in School: A Teacher’s Perspective

Bubble Therapy in School: A Teacher’s Perspective

Paola Dyboski
We know our Bubbles are loved by children but did you know that they’re loved by teachers too?! We’ve had more and more teachers reach out to us to rejoice in the effect Dr Zigs Bubbles have had on their class, or how happy the school was at the end-of-term fun day when someone brought them in. We’ve had Science teachers come to us telling us all about how they’ve used our kits to help children understand surface tension and basic physics.
YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH DAY

YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH DAY

Paola Dyboski
Most of us now understand Mental Health, and we are tuned in to noticing days when things arent’ going so well.  Words like ‘mental health hygiene’ and ‘solution-focused therapy’ are making their way into our everyday vocabulary.   And slowly the stigma surrounding depression, anxiety, and mental illnesses dropping away, particulary amongst the younger generation.

Mental health across all ages is on the decline and the stigma surrounding it is making it more and more difficult for people to reach out for help or even admit they’re struggling. We want to help change that. It’s ok not to be ok and Mental Health Matters aren’t just trendy hashtags and sound bytes to parrot off, here at Dr Zigs we take Mental Health seriously. This isn’t just about getting Bubble sales either, our Bubbles really do make a difference to your mental well-being. Bubble Therapy is a wonderful mindfulness tool and is brilliant for every age to practice and unwind.

Celebrating life (and grief) with Bubbles

Paola Dyboski
Celebrating life with Bubbles is a way to celebrate the person we all loved. We mark the end of their life and the start of ours, with Bubbles. But most importantly, our Bubbles are often used to spread ashes, as a way for kids to send loved ones into the sky, and as a way to say goodbye. Life is always there to be celebrated, to be honoured, and to be acknowledged.  For after all it is these other lives that make our own so very rich and meaningful.

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF CHARITY BLOG POST

Paola Dyboski
The International Day of Charity is all about looking out for one another. It's about raising awareness and highlighting some of the amazing global charities that work to provide help and support for those in need.

This awareness day was officially declared by the United Nations in 2012. It's a great opportunity to look at how poverty affects international development, and how we can work together to make a difference.
WORLD COCONUT DAY AT DR ZIGS

WORLD COCONUT DAY AT DR ZIGS

Paola Dyboski
In the Bên Tre region, Southern Vietnam, local farmers have earned a living for years selling coconut by-products such as coconut oils and coconut milks. Once the shells/husks had been stripped for their favourable insides, they were previously discarded. Now these farmers are no longer burning empty coconut husks; they’re making a second income making Dr Zigs fabulously sized Bubble Buckets! Once the Shells are cleaned and prepped we have them beautifully etched with an intricate pattern and of course — No chemicals or pesticides are used to grow these coconuts, which means they’re safe to be used for food too so after you’ve cleaned our Bubble Mix out of your new Bucket , you could fill it with fruit, noodles, cereals etc.

Bubbling with Pride

Bubbling with Pride

Paola Dyboski
At Dr Zigs we believe that our Bubbles ARE the rainbow. They are full of colour, they are diverse, they are each unique and perfect. They are equality, they are gender neutral, they are accessible. They have no boundaries. They celebrate life. Pride month is a really important time in our calendar.
