My Five Newest Items For Health And Wellness

1. Bone Broth - I recently became a huge fan of bone broth while doing research on what could help my husband with managing his M.S. and increasing his over all nutrition. We've tried several and even made some ourselves. I personally haven't been the biggest fan of bone broth until I discovered these two brands. LanoLife grass fed broth and Beyond Broth! I love that they both come in handy pouches that can easily be added to hot water. Perfect for on the go or to take on a trip. Beyond Broth is an Organic Vegan broth and super delicious!

2. Cold Pressed Vitamin D Capsules - Living in the Northwest we don't get nearly the amount of sun required to maintain healthy Vitamin D levels so we must eat a balanced diet and supplement. Not all supplements are created equal. I particularly like that these vitamin E capsules are made with coconut oil, are non GMO and gluten free.

Creative Expression While Being A Parent

In our parenting book 10 Ways To Parent Consciously we touch on many aspects of parenting including creative expression.

Don't lose yourself during the parenting process.

It's important to still feed your soul along with feeding your child's soul.

Continue to express yourself through crafts, sports, reading, music or exercise.

Whatever your hobbies are, don't put them on hold for eighteen years.

Incorporate them into your parenting life. Take time to hang out with your friends.

Host a family fun game night.

This is something parents and children can do together.

We hear all the time from parents who feel that they are not artistic or creative.

Creativity comes through us in many forms.

You many be a great gardener, or your dad may be a fantastic mechanic.

Maybe grandma likes to put together flower arrangements or moms out there that may be interior decorators.

That's a creative outlet.

Creativity doesn't always mean paint brushes, scissors, glue or knitting needles, etc.

Everyone is creative in one way or another. 😉

The girl with waterfall eyes children's book review

A Fantasy Children's Book About Pure Love!

Sometimes we hit bumps in the road but the earth keeps spinning, the universe keeps changing, tomorrow comes and we find our balance again.

There is a beautiful, healthy, emotional activity at the end of the book called Kaleidoscope Eyes that Andrew Newman does so eloquently, as he has with his entire conscious stories series.
We highly recommend this activity with your child to show them how to discover how to grow connection within themselves and others.

~ Stacy Toten and Carol Lawrence 

Conscious Bedtime Stories are a collection of stories with wise and lovable characters who teach core life values to your children. Each of the 12 Conscious Bedtime Story Club books invites its readers to engage in mindfulness practices, beginning with Snuggle Breathing, which helps parents and children alike to share an experience of relaxation, presence and connection to each other and to the story. Each story ends with reflective activities and exercises to help children assimilate the lessons the stories have presented. Because the last 20 minutes of each day are precious, these books use this important time to help children and parents grow consciously together in mind, body and spirit. The entire series is available on Amazon.

More Than Just Sniffles: Is Your Home Making Your Kids Sick?

The kids are back to school, the leaves are changing color, and the temperatures are slowly dropping. That can only mean one thing: it's officially flu season. But it may not be the flu virus that's making your kids sniffle and sneeze around the house.

In fact, there are many triggers around the average home that can bring on allergies and asthma attacks. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to eliminate your child's wheezes and sneezes and ensure a healthy, comfortable environment inside your home this fall.

Have your home inspected if you're planning to move

Approximately 11% of the U.S. population moved to new homes in 2017 alone, and 70% of homeowners say a home inspection helped them avoid potential problems.

The last thing you want to deal with when you move into a new house is a mold issue that could affect your family's health. If you plan to move this fall, be sure that you're not cutting costs on home inspections prior to moving in.

Remember to deep clean more than just your flooring

Teen Sails 15 Days In Emission Free Yacht To Speak At UN Climate Conference

Would you let your 16-year-old stay out past midnight by themselves? If not, then the tale of Greta Thunberg may give you extreme parenting anxiety. Of course, instead of staying out late with friends, Greta is trying to spark global action on climate change.

Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish girl, has become both a loved and despised face at the forefront of climate change activism. Last year, she began skipping school at age 15 to protest political inaction in the face of the global climate crisis. Her protest began gaining attention across Sweden and burgeoned into a worldwide movement dubbed Fridays for Future.

Across the United States, some 60% of people have some form of life insurance. Her point is that the earth doesn't have such a luxury, there is no backup, nor global insurance policy if the planet is effectively destroyed by unbridled resource consumption. Additionally, future generations face that same fate if global complacency and denial continue.

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
