We all know the feeling when keeping track of all the things that need to get done starts to overwhelm us and cause anxiety. Are there really enough hours in a day to get everything you need done?
Luckily, there is a simple way to release this anxiety and it involves breaking down your goals into daily to-do lists. This makes even your greatest challenges manageable by taking them in smaller, step-by- step measures.
Dealing with stress is a normal part of life. Sure, it's not the most fun thing in the world, but it's something we all have to learn to live with. No amount of self-care will stop stress from happening. The key to successfully managing stress lies in the way we choose to react and manage it.
Stress can wreak havoc on your hair, skin and nails but it's more than meets the eye. Being stressed out can slow your digestion and make it harder for your body to absorb essential vitamins and nutrients. Cortisol levels also rise when we are stressed. Both cortisol and a lack of proper nutrients can pose problems for our appearance. Combine the two and you're just asking for grey hairs!
Hydration for children is more important than you think! Many of us may not be aware that children are more susceptible to dehydration than adults.
Children have a higher requirement of water in relation to their bodies than adults. This is because they are more vulnerable to dehydration in hot weather and/or when exercising. So good hydration for children is essential to enable their body and mind to function at full capacity.
Children may not remember to drink water or fluids by themselves, so it is important for adults to provide ways to encourage a regular intake of fluid.
So how do you get your kids to drink more water?
If you’ve ever felt like there is just not enough time in the day to workout, you’re not alone.
Many of us lead a hectic lifestyle that leaves very little time to unwind, let alone exercise; yet, we’re constantly being bombarded with pressure to achieve a certain fitness level or body weight.
In fact, up until recently, it was thought that in order for exercise to “count” it had to be at least 30 minutes, and even that’s on the short end. This kind of rift between your reality and the end goal can make it challenging for anyone thinking about starting a journey toward better health.
