If you’re a mom (and you’re here, so I’d bet that you are) you are probably stressed, pressed for time, and running in a thousand directions at once. And maybe the idea of mediating is as foreign to you as Mandarin Chinese does to me. Well, I’ve figured out the secret . . . [Read more…]
I’ve been dreading this but I’ve missed you. I may not have a big following, that is not what I am after, but I love the gals that check in on Chewy and the Bee (and of course the Bossy). I dreaded this because it’s been a long while since I’ve made contact. Halloween, to be exact.
Since October I’ve been blindsided by a dreaded moment of the “ghost dad” which left me mentally paralyzed for, what seems like, weeks. I fought many-a-nap-battle and lost tremendously proving that sleep deprived, puffy eyed, zombie moms exist 2.5 years later too. I’ve had a crash course in Alzheimers and dementia care with a surprise visit from granny who typically stays with an aunt who is much better equipped to care for her needs than I am (firstly, she has no needy, bossy toddlers) but is out of the country for the moment. Needless to say, it’s been a trying few months.
So here I am, again. It’s the holiday finale week and we are up on the eve of Channukah & Christmas. With all that warmth in mind, I wanted to reach out to you gals to wish you a warm a wonderful holiday season. May our 2017 be blessed and open to all good things that await us.
Oh, and if you’re down in the dumps (like me) this cheery time of year, don’t worry — you’re not alone. Meditate, yogatate, and vedge out when necessary. This coming year may we really stop caring what others think without losing sight of our good hearts. May our blind eye be turned to helping people in need from all walks of life and be selfless in your random acts of kindness. And with a whole lot of help (at least this rings true for me) may we work on being kinder, gentler, and much more patient as we close in on 2016.
Thank you, dear friends, for being here. Please, come back soon!
Cheers to health, joy & peace!!! See you in 2017!!!
It’s that time again. The cool breeze is settling comfortably in, leaves are preparing for their final brilliant display, and everything pumpkin is hitting our favorite coffee shops and bakeries. It’s fall season and Halloween is the star of October. With the season’s festivities highly anticipated, I decided to explore the internet to the furthest corners to find the cutest and most unique kids Halloween costumes!
Choosing Organic Food
It’s Critical for Your Families Health
When picking a healthy morning breakfast cereals there are a few things to keep in mind. It’s easy to get lost in the colorful boxes with tricky claims and mountains of sugar and artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. First and foremost, switch to organic.
Organic foods contain less pesticides. Pesticides have been linked to a wide range of human health hazards, ranging from short-term impacts such as headaches and nausea to chronic impacts like cancer, reproductive harm, and endocrine disruption.1
Non-organic foods possess a high count of preservatives to keep the foods last a “lifetime”. Breathing and behavioral issues in humans have been linked to pesticide intake from the foods that we eat. MayoClinic.com identified aspartame, sulfites, benzoates and yellow dye No. 5 as preservatives that could exacerbate breathing problems in asthmatics and others, while Medical News Today linked sulfites with shortness of breath and other breathing problems.2
Ever wonder why so many people these days are diagnosed with the ADD or ADHD disorder? According to the Archives of Disease in Children, in a 2003 double-blind study of 1,873 children the consumption of food additives and preservatives led to significant increase in hyperactive behavior.3
