Posted: March 06, 2019

It might seem far-off, you might even still have snow on the ground! But before you know it, Summer will be here, and with it: longer days, no school, and lots of free time for kids. It’s never too early to start planning for the inevitable joys and challenges of Summer!

Summer is a time for fun, yes, but while our kids have so much time on their hands, parents can end up overwhelmed and over-committed just trying to balance busy lives with the time demands of bored kids. And we don’t want them to just sit inside all day glued to digital devices, either, but kids today have to be much more alert than earlier generations. Watching the local news can terrify any parent, but with some simple safety strategies and carefully planned activities, we can face these challenges and feel much more confident about our children’s safety AND the quality of their Summer experience!

Making Your New Year’s Resolutions Stick: 5 Top Tips From The Experts

Posted: February 13, 2019

“New Year, New Me!” It’s a slogan that has become so familiar that it’s almost a cliche this time of year, with a torrent of jokes and memes on social media to drive the point home. Most people fail to keep their resolutions, often giving up completely by the time Summer rolls around. As many as 88% of resolutioners are said to abandon the change they sought in January, with as many as 43% lasting less than one month! 

Still, science tells us that the new year is a great time to make positive changes in our lives because we are able to dissociate ourselves from our previous habits and better envision ourselves with new patterns and new beginnings. There is a reason why the new year has been a time of goal-setting and vision-casting ever since the ancient Babylonians, thousands of years ago. And with the vast majority of New Year’s resolutions involving health and fitness, it’s never a better time than NOW to find expert tips for success!
