I came, I saw, I tried ZAMboost

Summer is over. Cold and flu season is on the way. Thankfully, there’s a new product to help! For those of you who have never heard of Zamboost, it is a new immune support supplement along the lines of Airborne or Emergen-C. But, ZAMboost is very different from both products because it has some ingredients the other two don’t.

Better Nutrition for Kids: End of the Rainbow Fruit Salad Book Review & Giveaway

By Melody Meiners

If it grows from the ground or is picked from a tree, my three year old is certain there is a conspiracy against her. And help us if it is green and leafy, that is the dinner time equivalent of armageddon. Since force feeding is considered a war crime, and her ability to wait me out has become epic we aren’t left with a lot of options for getting healthy foods into my daughter’s belly instead of cleverly tucked under her booster seat.

Our family isn’t alone. Eating healthy and the consequence of childhood obesity is one the top three concerns for parents today according to a poll by the University of Michigan.

Sleeping Single In A Double Bed

(By Lisa Bertrand)

It is 8 a.m. As I sit in the breakfast nook answering emails, readying a boy for school and writing this, the hubby has hit the snooze on his alarm clock at least six times. Six times, people!

He’s been doing this for years, setting the alarm at some ungodly early hour and then hitting the snooze button repeatedly. Why doesn’t he just set his alarm to a later time? Because each night as he sets the alarm, he has every intention of getting up early. But then morning comes…

The first step is trying to understand how this person might be feeling. No matter how much time has elapsed, a miscarriage is a loss that those who experience never forget.

Combat Holiday Stressors

A recent study showed that 61% of the US population is worried about having enough money to deal with the holidays, while 42% is worried about gift giving. Thirty-four percent are stressing over not having enough time to get things done, while an additional 23% are anxious about running up their credit card debt!

Let’s face it, while this is supposed to be a season of joy and socializing, not many people have the extra money to spend or time to nurture themselves.

Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween Safety Tips

Nine years ago I was badly injured on Halloween night due to a broken manhole cover, bad lighting and a lack of hazard tape. Talk about scarey! Take a few minutes to read these safety tips. They could save you or your little one a scraped knee or (in my case) a trek to the local emergency room!

Also, are cars or other objects (utility poles, newspaper racks, etc.) blocking the sidewalk? Gauge the traffic. Does the speed or amount of traffic make this location feel uncomfortable? Do you have personal safety concerns walking in this location?
