Parenting And Cell Phone Addiction. Tips For Taking Back Control.

Let's be honest with ourselves and each other. Technology and our phones are awesome! We can call, text, Video call, connect with loved ones, make new friends, conduct business, read/listen to a book, watch videos, write blog posts, stay social, listen to music and so much more. All on one device. Pretty cool. 

Even though they are a huge asset to our lives they are also a huge distraction. Sometimes the people we spend the most time with, the ones right in front of us are the ones who suffer. 

Sometimes they have their heads buried in their phones as well. Except your children. 

Young children need and crave one on one immediate interaction. You are their guiding light, their example, the one who assures them everything is OK with a calm word or glance. 

You are the one they look up to, the one they adore, the one they crave attention from. 

If it's not already there, cell phone addiction is sure to become the number one planet addiction. Look around you. It’s almost insanity the amount of people staring at their phones. It’s now towards the top of the list for distracted driving

How To Teach Your Kids About Plastic Waste

Countless Marine Creatures Are Tangled Up in Plastic Every Day, So How Can You Help? By Getting The Whole Family Involved In The Effort.

The world has a major pollution problem, and much of it has to do with plastic waste. Between 2004 and 2014, global production of plastics grew from 225 million tons to 311 million tons. In fact, nearly half of all plastic ever manufactured was made since the year 2000. That isn't inherently bad news on its own, but when you consider that less than one-fifth of all plastic is recycled worldwide and 18 billion pounds of plastic waste flows into our planet's oceans each year, then the predicament starts to become clear. And as recent data shows, our marine life is paying the price.

You may have seen one of the heartwrenching, and graphic, videos of a helpless sea turtle with a plastic straw stuck deep inside its nose. Or, even worse, your kids may have seen one of these videos and become distraught. But while it's clear that something needs to be done, it's not always easy to figure out what that "something" should be.

Why Thrifting And Resale Is On The Rise

When it comes to shopping, Americans tend to spend a surprisingly large amount on clothing and fashion. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that we spend $1,800 a year on clothing. That might seem excessive until you account for families with children. Unfortunately, as the parents of growing kids can confirm, much of this is spent on clothing that will quickly become damaged or unusable within that same twelve-month period. On top of that, fast fashion has thrived on quickly producing inexpensive clothing with a shorter lifespan that keeps consumers coming back for more, and more, and more.

Genes Aren't Your Destiny

We recently came across this podcast with Luke Storey and Bruce Lipton. Anyone who has followed our blog for along time knows how much we appreciate Bruce's teachings. We had the pleasure of speaking with him and his lovely wife at a Hay House conference in Seattle in 2010. He's very genuine and down to earth.

In this video Bruce and Luke talk about how much of our programming takes place within the first seven years of life, how to change your programming, quantum physics and soooo much more! Read full video description down below. Grab your favorite beverage, kick your feet up and enjoy!

Quantum Creation And Epigenetics: Genes Aren't Your Destiny w/ Bruce Lipton #200

Dr. Bruce Lipton is a stem cell biologist, bestselling author, and thought leader who is bridging the often disparate worlds of science and spirit. Dr. Lipton did pioneering research on cloned human stem cells, then later served as a Research Fellow in the Department of Pathology in Stanford University’s School of Medicine, where their research revealed the nature of the biochemical pathways by which the mind (perceptions/beliefs) controls behavior and genetic activity. His discoveries ran counter to the established scientific view that life is controlled by the genes, and that laid the foundation for today’s revolutionary new field of Epigenetics. It’s cellular biology by way of quantum physics, and it has not only changed Dr. Lipton’s professional life, but his personal life and physical health as well – so now, he is trying to share this knowledge and pass it on to others so that we can experience the benefits of understanding, too.

Study Finds That One in Three Kids Experience Back Pain

Yes, the way kids wear their backpacks really can affect their posture!

Experiencing back pain is extremely common in today's society. In fact, experts believe that 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in their lives. Whether it's from a genetic condition, poor posture, or an accident like a staircase injury, which is the second leading type of accidental injury, millions of people experience back pain regularly. And now, a new study has found that back pain among children and adolescents is significantly higher than might be expected.

According to the study, “The Epidemiology of Back Pain in Children and Adolescents: A Cross-Sectional Study of 3,669 American Youth,” one in three children between the ages of 10 and 18 reported experiencing backaches within the past year. The survey reached about 3,700 children between these ages.
