Addiction Recovery With Exercise

Whether you are addicted to alcohol, street drugs, prescription drugs, gambling, food, or nicotine, the neurological pattern that develops is the same. The reward center in your brain is underactive, and it takes more in life to tell that part of your brain that you're having a good time. Nothing but the addiction seems to satisfy that reward center, and the brain is tricked into thinking that the addiction is necessary for survival.



Quick bursts of exercise at 70-80% of one's… Continue

The Two Best IQ Boosters for Kids

New research is showing us fascinating information about the brain. We are now learning that we can form new brain cells at nearly any age with physical exercise, and that exercising before class can significantly boost learning capacity by spawning new brain cells. Learning new information immediately following aerobic exercise fills the new cells with information.



The new neural pathways formed during exercise are like new railroad tracks in our brains. If we don't use them, we… Continue

Do These Things To Live Longer

I love it when a “new study” republishes old information. This just in: four behaviors are correlated with longevity. The behaviors studied happen to be physical exercise, nutrition, alcohol use, and tobacco use.



This is old news. There’s such a stockpile of research on the topic already that we now know that 85% of our longevity is tied to our lifestyle behaviors. Your choices usually determine whether or not you’ll live to see your great grandchildren, not necessarily your genes.… Continue

The Real Story On Chocolate and Depression

A new study has linked chocolate with depression once again. The article merely tells us what our intuition already knew, and the fact that chocolate makes us feel better at some point in our lives isn't exactly news. But how does chocolate make us feel better? Why? What's the reason we tend to crave chocolate more during PMS? The article was so unbelievably incomplete that I felt compelled to provide additional information.







The researchers hum and haw about the… Continue

The Mother’s Day Gift to Give Yourself

Mothers can have bad days – kids misbehave, work gets on top of you, the house is a dump, your husband is being useless, etc. Mothers often tell me that when they are having a bad day, they think of me and they instantly feel better. The chaos in my life provides them with some comfort in those manic mama moments.

But I have to let you in on a little secret: it’s not that bad. In fact, it’s pretty darn good. Sure, I don’t get a lot of sleep and nights out on the town are few and far…

i just threw up in my mouth a little

I’ve been reading skinny bitch for about a week now. No, it doesn’t take me that long to read a book but I’m trying to pace myself and plus I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to do it. After all the fruit and veg I had last Monday and the accompanying stomach aches my body was in shock. So I backed off a bit. Meantime, I’ve also been doing some research, looking up various…

FAKE IT TIL YOU BAKE IT!

By: Jennifer Brown Banks







With today’s frantic pace, few divas have time to devote energy to making home baked goodies like our moms made back in the good old days.



Who can forget that sweet aroma that filled the kitchen air when we arrived home from school? It seemed that a glass of cold milk and a warm slice of pie or cake made everything right with the world.



Enter year…

Here's How You Can Learn French With Your Child This Summer!



I enrolled my daughter in French immersion when she began preschool.



She is now considered fluently bilingual.



I have read that some parents are nervous about introducing a child to another language at such a young age.



Have no fear! - research shows that at 3-4 years of age, learning a second language is as easy as learning the first!



Head on over to our blog,… Continue

Here Is How I Spent My Mothers Day!

So it has come and almost gone...the day each year that moms look forward to as the one day they don't have to lift a finger. The one day that it is ok to be completely selfish, do nothing and get praises, flowers, gifts and lots of kisses for it! How did you spend your Mothers Day? Let me tell you about mine.

About three months ago I informed my husband that all I wanted for Mothers Day was a few hours alone in the house. This being my first Mothers Day, I reminded him that I have not…

My perfectly imperfect Mothers Day

So I am sitting here arguing w/ my 5 yr old about why it is that she cannot watch the Disney channel,(because her attitude sucks, that's why). My husband is in the bedroom coughing up a lung,my 16 yr old is still asleep, and I will not even bring up the fact that it is almost 3 in the afternoon. My 9yr old is outside playing, but makes sure every time he checks in wishes me a "Happy Mothers Day Mom" and informs his younger sisters "be nice to Mom, it is her day". My 3yr old keeps sneaking… Continue

For the past seven years I have been either pregnant, nursing, running after the kiddies or all of the above, and at the same time. I turned into a very physical, sensual person, when most of my life I had been quite passive…
