How to Create A Healthy Household

A sudden inclination towards promoting a healthy lifestyle goes beyond going to the gym. If you think about it, most of our hours are spent at home where we can be tempted by the sweet goodies shelved away in our pantries. It is therefore important to keep a clean and healthy home. Not only for yourself but to set a positive and active message to our kids.

Here are some tips to encourage healthy living in your home:

  1. First and foremost start off by cleaning out your pantry. Scrap away that opened bag of potato chips and the leftover pizza from last night. Empty out the flat bottle of coke that your child wings for every night during dinner.

  1. Make vegetables and fruit look appetizing to encourage kids. Kids are very attracted to colorful things. Instead of ice-cream for dessert, have a fun frozen snack, such as a fruit Popsicle stick.

  1. Who said a bar fridge was only used for alcohol?  Blend a guilt-free freshly squeezed  juice. Have a selection of flavors stored in the bar fridge rather than cramming it in the main fridge.  

  1. Expand your herbal tea variety. Herbal tea is the simple remedy when it’s late at night and  you feel like sipping something warm. Unless you want to be buzzing all night from caffeine, try chamomile tea. This tea is an antioxidant, which may prevent cancer and diabetes.
  1. Meditate. Build your very own sanctuary at in a quiet room or outdoors. An area with light exposure and minimal clutter can give you the peace of mind that you deserve.
  2. Incorporate some daily exercise into your routine. Whether you prefer morning Pilates or unwind yourself from Zumba workout at home.

  1. Engage in outdoor activities with your family. Kids can’t take their eyes away from tablet devices that are very easily handed over to them if parents want to occupy them. While this may hold their attention, the amount of time spent looking at the screen is not only bad for their delicate eyesight but also their posture.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
