Importance of Me Time For Parents

living water resort spa
As a parent, when you are constantly on-the-go it can make things feel hard and sometimes frustrating because of factors like lack of sleep and an endless amount of things to do. This is why it is important to take some time away to relax, replenish, recuperate to appreciate what we have. If you are lucky to have some help to take some time for yourself, set some rules to make the most of it.

When you're stuck in a rut, it can feel like there's no way out. You might feel like your life has plateaued and that you'll never experience the joy and fulfilment you once did. The good news is that everybody feels this way sometimes -- many people have spoken publicly about how they hit a low point and almost gave up on their own happiness, but found ways to turn things around. Here are four habits that may seem small, but they can make a big difference if you adopt them consistently.

This Month's Reads - Adventure books for Young Adults and Slowing Down our Lifestyle

Escape by Linwood Barclay
Escape by Linwood Barclay is a kid-friendly juvenile fiction. It is very adventurous and full of drama. It is about a boy named Jeff Conroy and with his high-tech partner “Chipper”, who is a dog running from the sinister organization, “The Institute”, which created Chipper. Jeff Conroy's parents, Edwin and Patricia Conroy had died in a plane crash while trying to reveal the Institutes secrets of creating high-tech children, just as they had done with dogs. Now both Jeff and Chipper are constantly running from the Institute. We recommend this book for all ages.

I have been paying more attention to my lifestyle especially fitness and healthy eating while taking probiotics. Probiotics are friendly beneficial bacteria that live in our gut, which is important for our digestive system. It helps our body produce vitamins, digest food, support our immune system, and controls the over growth of bad bacteria and fungi.

Oreck’s Home Cleaning Solution

oreck air response
Oreck's Air Response air purifier with DustSense technology sets it apart from other purifiers in the market. We really like that it can automatically monitor, detect and respond to dust particles and odour in a home, which helps improve air quality within the home. One of the best features we love is not needing to control the settings once we keep the air purifier in auto mode. Auto mode allows DustSense technology to monitor and detect the amount of particles in the air, which automatically senses and responds to deliver cleaner air. This takes the guesswork out.

The Role of Hydration in our Day-to-Day Activities and Fitness Routine

drinking water exercising
We have all heard how important water is for our bodies since we were little, but I am sure despite knowing the positive influence of water for our bodily functions, we don't pay as much attention as we should to how much water we in-take.  In our family, we have come to a mutual agreement that water makes us feel better, helps prevent headaches and keeps our mood positive. Since we started monitoring our hydration levels, we've found that water is the best source of hydration throughout the day, and it makes a big difference in our lives.

Healthy hydration is helping us with our food goals to watch what we eat more closely. We are also rethinking our routines through the day to ensure we include proper rest into our day.

Win a line of Kandoo products

kandoo products
Kandoo Flushable Wipes are a summer travel essential for parents. I remember travelling wasn't easy for us when we were potty training our children. Kandoo Flushable wipes do not require any rolling or ripping, which makes it easy to use and perfect for little hands. I like that it comes in travel sizes that fit into any suitcase, back pack or handbag.

I find taking care of our teeth and gums is very important for our overall health! I am sure many of you who have experienced some sort of pain related to oral health, know that the pain can be unbearable. I believe as a prevention we have to maintain a regular healthy routine, so we can prevent these incidents from happening.

I like this lightweight 5mm Kiku Premium Printed Reversible Yoga Mat because it is extra-thick. The thickness of the cushioning makes it comfortable when exercising. The length of 68" and the width of 24" gives us a stable, non-slip surface when we do yoga practices making it a perfect mat for home or studio use.
