4 Keys to Raising Smarter Kids

4 Keys to Raising Smarter KidsWouldn’t you love to have ‘smarter kids? I don’t mean that in a bad way because all kids are smart. My own grandkids are teaching me about texting, FB and creating videos, etc. What I’m talking about is ability to learn and retain information.

Do they have trouble with math, reading, science? The cause could be out of your control in the school setting (unless you want to become an activist). There are steps you can take at home. Ensure your family is getting the proper sleep, exercise, nutrition, as well as breathing clean air and drinking pure water.

Toxic Overload and What To Do

Toxic Overload and What To DoToxic overload is a ‘hot’ subject for many in the health industry. Though this book was written in 2005, it is still relevant. There are more chemicals available today that have not been tested for toxicity. These chemicals are in our cleaners. They are in our personal care products. And, they are even in our food supply!

Contrary to popular belief, not all sickness or disease is hereditary. Are you aware that most disease can be prevented? Education is the key to knowledge.

This book is an excellent place to start. It consists of two parts:

Steps To Create Healthy Habits That Stick

Steps To Create Healthy Habits That StickCreating healthy habits sounds easy, doesn’t it? I suppose it is if you’re taught them as a child. Many of us learned about brushing our teeth properly. Good, healthy habit, right?

Then, we grew up, got out on our own and decided to do things our way. Not saying we gave up brushing our teeth. However, it’s easy enough to get in the habit of eating at fast food places.

Health Benefits of Watermelon

Health Benefits of Watermelon - 1Watermelon weekend is here! It’s also another fruit we’ve planted in our yard. What I didn’t know was all the health benefits associated with it.

On a hot day, if refrigerated, watermelon is one of the best fruits on the planet. By nature, it’s full of water (92%) and natural sugar. Add to that, it’s low on calories and high in Vitamin C.

It’s one food most kids will eat. 🙂 Take it as a treat on your next trip to the beach or a picnic.

5+ Health Benefits of Radish

5 Health Benefits of RadishGrowing up with the ‘waste not, want not’ ideology, and because we planted some this year, I wondered about the health benefits of radish as well as how radish leaves could be used. What I learned is nothing short of amazing. Besides, being used in salads, they can also be used in smoothees and they have a distinct flavor. I definitely like it more than spinach. 🙂
