This has to do with health and wellness in many ways.  It can be considered positive peer pressure, a good influence, if it’s a good thing we are copying.  It can help us feel part of something bigger than ourselves.  It can help us adopt positive habits and ways, such as eating healthy.

If you have young children in school, you need to know about head lice.

Don’t panic. It has nothing to do with cleanliness and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about.

They are spread by close contact. Your children will bring them home and they will spread very quickly through the family.
We are very tactile with our children. We’re always hugging them.

When it happens, before you run to the store and pick up a head lice formula to put on your child’s head, consider:

What can you do?

Walking has so many benefits.  It’s good for physical health, but it also is good for emotional and mental health.  It can be done with very little cost and in so many different ways.  Walking with a partner is a good way to help each other keep to the routine.  Families walking together regularly will making habits that will last, and can even become a family tradition.

The CDC says,

Walking is a great way to get the physical activity needed to obtain health benefits. Walking does not require any special skills. It also does not require a gym membership or expensive equipment.

The physical benefits can include weight loss, and an increase in stamina and muscle endurance.  You can help your weight loss efforts by taking an exercise bar about 30 – 45 minutes before you walk.  I use one that jump starts my body’s fat burning process and helps me get through my 45 minute walks.

  

Build up your walking routine slowly.   If you overdo it, it can result in sore muscles or even shin splints.   Always do warm up exercises and cool down exercises, stretching your muscles slowly and  carefully.

If you do over-work your muscles, use a good muscle cream to help sooth sore muscles and for deep, soothing pain relief.  I use a good one that contains camphor, menthol, methol salicylate and melaleuca oil.

If the weather doesn’t allow you to walk outside, go to a mall.

In spring and summer, we are used to anticipating allergies but this Healthline article points out that allergies can visit us in every season. It points out which exterior causes trigger which allergies.

And did you know that not all allergens are generated from the outdoors? Many allergens are sourced to the inside our homes. Many come from the household cleaners we use and even our laundry products.

The article continues to identify which allergies occur in which seasons, how to cope or avoid them and diagnosing them. Naturally, your doctor can prescribe medications that in most cases provide relief.

 

I represent a wellness company that produces many natural alternatives as well as a full line of eco-friendly cleaning and laundry products, which can make a huge difference in your in-home environment.
