Homes everywhere need cleaning - but few homeowners have the time and energy required to scrub surfaces day in and day out. Mom’s, in particular, are overburdened - and as a result, many are turning to semi-regular cleaning so that their place stays spotless.…

Baby Showers: The Next Big Thing

Like so many modern celebrations, Baby Showers have arrived in the UK from North America. It’s a real tradition over there and, like High School Proms, Halloween and Black Friday, one of those exciting social events that is catching on big time over here.

The idea is simple but universally appealing. Throw a party for the pregnant mother and her…

Painless Shots for Kids

This is one of the neatest things I've ever seen. It's a cute little bumblebee that relieves needle pain when your child gets a shot. Simply press it against the skin above the injection site and it interferes with pain signals to relieve injection pain. Since there are few things I dread more than taking my child to get a shot, I am very interested in seeing how well this thing works. I would imagine that the sight of the needle alone is frightening enough for a child to go nuts, but maybe the… Continue

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
