And this is usually just an excuse for putting our children through something really stressful or something that they really cannot cope with. But, is there any valid point in putting our children through stressful situations? How much should we really expose our children to stress and change?
Coping With The Grieving Process
If we are to support our children, especially if there are things going on in the family that require them to process information in a certain manner, we have to expect some form of stress. But at the same time, if it's something like your parents or grandparents, having to go into a home, if they feel powerless to do anything about it, this could make them feel more stressed. As such, a better solution would be to have them be involved in the process. For something like their grandparents going into a home, they could benefit from having a part in the decision-making process. They could go on a website like so they can provide a valid contribution, rather than just sitting there feeling anxious about what's going to happen to their beloved grandparent.

Five Ways To Improve Your Health And Wellbeing

Improving your health and wellbeing is something that you should be conscious of as you get older. Our bodies tend to find everything a little bit hard once we go past our twenties, so it’s important to make sure you are feeling health both on the inside and out. Here are five ways to improve your health and wellbeing.


Drink Plenty Of Water
Water is something we’re mainly made up of, and therefore, we should be drinking plenty of it every day. The recommended intake is around 1.5 litres which may seem a lot but isn’t when you break it down into pints. Water is also good for the skin, seeing as your skin cells are made up of water, without enough of it, wrinkles and fine lines will appear and your skin overall will end up being dry.

Why Real Estate With A Few Acres Is So Desired

Stop what you’re doing for a moment and think about your perfect home. It's often called the dream home exercise where you consider what your ideal home would look like. No doubt you probably have a direct view on what the decor would be like, how many rooms you will have, the overall size of the house as well. But what about the outside? No, not the garden but the land and space around the home itself? This is where you will need to stretch your imagination as the land around the home is just as important as the home itself. Gardens are one thing but what about fields, rivers, lakes, hills, trees and even forests around the home that you own? Surely this is something you would like as part of your property, an area that is a merging of land and property. This kind of large real estate is greatly desired by many different kinds of people, all for the same reasons.

Taking a stroll where you please

The best thing about having a few acres to yourself is, having a nice long walk on your land without ever being in public or someone else’s private property. You can go walking in the morning and never run by the same tree or fence post twice, and still be on your own land. It gives you great peace of mind to know that you have so much free space, open air and a multitude of different views. You never have to leave your property to be at one with nature and wildlife, you’re constantly surrounded by fields, trees and sometimes even moving water. If you want, you can go for a picnic out in the fields during summertime and not have to worry about getting moved off the premises when the sun goes down.

Have You Tried Matcha Green Tea?

Matcha green tea powder has been enjoyed for generations in some parts of the world, and now its popularity is spreading globally, as people begin to realise the health benefits it offers. Literally meaning ‘powdered tea’, the main difference between Matcha and other green teas is that the whole leaf is consumed, making it a much more potent nutrient source than green tea that is steeped.

The Production Of Matcha Green Tea Powder
Like all types of teas, Matcha green tea comes from a woody shrub native to southern China, which is a relative of the Camellia plant. The regional location of the plant, the plant variety, and the processing method used all determine the resulting type of tea. Matcha preparation entails using a cloth to cover the tea plants before they are harvested. The shade triggers leaf growth with enhanced flavour and texture.

Types of industries that put workers at risk

Cancer Research UK identified types of industries that can put a person at risk of developing cancer. These include:
  • Agriculture-related jobs – excessive exposure to sunlight or exposure to agricultural chemicals could increase risk.
  • Construction – Jobs in construction and related fields can expose one to too much sunlight on a daily basis and to substances such as silica, asbestos, coal, paint and solvents, wood dust, or to diesel engine exhaust. 
  • Mining and manufacturing – Exposure to fossil fuels such as mineral oils, benzene, asbestos, silica, and solvents can increase the risk of cancer.

Do You Fall Into #MalnutritionTraps?

The country has been facing a rise in the number of underweight and overweight Filipinos for more than 20 years. The World Health Organization (WHO) defined this phenomenon as the “Double Burden of Malnutrition” or the “prevalence of both undernutrition and overweight in the same community, nation, or region.”

To address this problem, our government launched the Pinggang Pinoy® campaign in 2014. Pinggang Pinoy® is an easy-to-understand food guide showing proper food group portioning on a per-meal basis. This reflects the principles of MOderation, VAriety, and BAlance (MOVABA) to promote healthier eating habits.

Solving the Philippines’ Double Burden of Malnutrition should be a collaborative effort between the public and private sectors as it is not an easy feat. With this, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation partnered with government agencies to conduct education programs to raise awareness and promote the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® in malnutrition hotspots, where incidences of Double Burden Malnutrition are high. This training was given to homemakers/mothers who have malnourished (underweight, stunting, wasting, overweight and obese) school-aged children.

The pilot run resulted in improvements in the knowledge & attitudes of households related to the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® within target areas. However, behavior changes towards healthier eating habits remain to be a challenge. The program uncovered a number #MalnutritionTraps that some Pinoy households easily fall into. The following #MalnutritionTraps provide a picture of how unhealthy eating habits may lead to Double Burden of Malnutrition:

Moms Can Have Cool Cars Too! Things You Should Get For Your Car In 2019

Who says that just because you’ve got a family carrier and that because you’re a Mom that you can’t have a cool car? If you’re like many other Moms around the world, you spend a considerable amount of time in your car: taking the kids to school, dropping them at practice, doing the grocery shopping, and commuting to work. Did you know that a good 6% of your day is spent behind the wheel at least? Your car should be something you’re proud of, something that when you and the kids pile into it that you’re proud of! So, without further ado, here are some super cool additions that you should get for your car in 2019!


New alloys
It’s no secret that pretty much every car immediately looks better with matching and funky car alloys, and they’re not expensive either! Most car repair stores will stock a whole range of chrome, matte, and even glossy alloys for you to choose from. All you need to know is what size your wheels are, as many stores will even fit them for you too! Flashy alloys will certainly make you the coolest Mom around.
A dash cam

Don't Be Afraid To Get Help If You're Depressed

It can be hard to know when you need help and even after you know it, it can be hard to accept the fact and actually go and get help. So many people think that counseling is something for weak people - something that you only need when you are forced into it, but that is far from being true. Counseling is truly life changing for me and for those around me (that have done it in the past). There is no need to be afraid to talk to someone or get help because at the end of the day, you are only bettering yourself and you have absolutely nothing to lose. 

In fact, you will gain a lot from counseling. More than you will expect, probably. Here are just a few of those ways that counseling can help you and others, especially if you are depressed:

You will be held accountable

Accountability is so important. I truly think that it is the difference between success and failure. Why? Because when people do not take accountability, things start to go awry. When people do have accountability over their actions, they automatically are ready to take it on, in order to try to remedy the issue. While accountability should always start and end with the individual, it is so helpful to have someone hold you accountable, especially in the beginning and when it gets hard to keep going on. People thrive when they feel like they cannot (or should not) let someone else down. For example, you are more likely to go workout when you do not want to when you know that someone is waiting for you. That’s the basis of accountability and when you get help, you will be held accountable for continuing on your path to getting better. Accountability helps people know that they will be accountable, it gives people in your life an opportunity to support you, and it encourages you to do better.

Is It Hard To Keep Kids Interested In Sports?

Sports have always been a big part of our culture. Thousands of years of activities and games, and learning the hard ways which ones are safe to play, have left us with only the best sports to get on with, and most people like to turn on the TV to watch the football or the soccer on the weekend. Even when you’re not an active person yourself, there’s still going to be an athlete or sports team out there you root for!

So when it comes to your kids, and their curious minds learning about the world around them, they’re going to have a lot of energy to get out and explore with. And one of the main ways to exercise these spirits is via sporting activities and getting your heart rate up. But with so many alternative activities on offer, such as watching the TV or reading books or booting up a video games console, how do you keep your little ones interested in using their legs and getting all sweaty from running around?

Well, with a few of the methods below, hopefully, you’ll be able to do just that! After all, we as humans build up our muscles and strong, healthy bones from being able to walk around and tumble over and climb trees and jump up and down as many times as we liked. So to make sure that your children are the ones who love to grab a Frisbie or a baseball bat, and get outside for a game with their friends, take a look below.

Get Playing with them!

If you’re a parent, there’s going to be plenty of times where you’ve joined in on the playtime your child needs. You’ve made up a bunch of funny voices and silly plotlines for their Barbie dolls and dollhouse, or you’ve pretended to be a dragon that’s attacking their pillow fort, or you’ve made up a goalpost and tasked them to get the ball past you as many times as they can. These are fun moments, the ones we love our children to have because they keep them on their feet and laughing for another day. And these are all great moments you yourself are going to love to have with your children and will serve as good memories for years to come.

But they’re also integral for making sure your child is interested in playing sports, and that they’ll stay that way. After all, if they see you dressed up in a tennis outfit, or they ask you to help them practice their rugby tackles and you’re all for it, you’re going to be setting a very good example. Kids learn a lot more from us than we think! Sure, you won’t always have the time or energy to follow through on a method like this, but that’s when you can ask for a raincheck that’s an hour or a day later. As long as you keep to your promise!

All in all, even when you can’t help out, make sure you’re always showing your child that you’re willing to dive into the pool and help them to swim their lanes, or that you’ve got a pair of soccer boots you can slip on and dash out into the garden with. Your children don’t ever want to be alone in trying out something new, or something they think is boring but you want them to give a chance. Make sure they know you’re by their side every step of the way!

5 Benefits that Vacations Give Families

If you ask me what my favorite memory is as a child, I always say without hesitation the yearly trips I made with my family to the beach for New Years. We would stay in a cabin right across the beach with some friends and I literally lived in my swimsuit for a whole week. We would eat delicious food, build the best sandcastles, go fishing, get dunked by waves every other day, and my dad would take out his guitar and we would sing together.

I’ve always relished those memories and have always thought that my parents gave my sisters and I a valuable gift by taking us on that yearly trip. Now that I’m a mother, I’ve tried to do the same with my children, and I love hearing them reminisce about our trips. And it’s not just the memories, going on vacation as a family has so many other benefits. If you’re thinking about taking a break or need to feel closer to your family,  family travel could be a good option for the following reasons.

Following A Lasting Routine To Protect Your Long-Term Health

The hardest part of living well is making changes to your life that you can maintain on a permanent basis. If you’re tired of failing to stick to a healthy lifestyle then here are some pieces of advice that could help you on your mission of following a lasting routine to protect your long-term health.

Keep your diet and exercise regime consistent.
In order to follow a lasting routine that will protect your long-term health, you need a consistent diet and exercise regime. You can’t maintain a balanced state of wellbeing unless you follow a long-term eating and exercising schedule. Trying a short fad diet for a few weeks is pointless. If you just end up returning to your original diet then you’ll pile the weight back on, and fluctuating your weight on a constant basis is unhealthy in itself. Instead, take the long-term route to gradually improve your weight level and overall health. You’ll get lasting results. As we’ve discussed on this blog before, you need to hone your diet if you want to get into good shape. The food you eat links closely to your workout routine too. If you’re running a lot every day then you’ll need plenty of protein in your meals to keep your energy levels high. You just need to find balance in your daily routine.

Water, Water Everywhere But Not A Drop To Drink

Keeping the body hydrated is an essential part of daily life. Without water, the body struggles to lubricate the joints, maintain a healthy temperature, and remove waste. Direct knock-on effects of this happening are migraines, weight gain, and tiredness and fatigue. An H2O shortage is incredibly dangerous which is why dehydration is a constant battle everyone needs to fight.

Unfortunately, you might be losing the war. According to research, 50% of kids and teens aren’t getting the hydration they need, and adults aren’t far behind. This means you and your children might be at serious risk of health problems. And, the season doesn’t matter. Summer is an obvious sticking point, yet winter is also hazardous as people shirk their responsibilities. Whether it’s June or January, your body generally needs the same amount of H2O to function.

Because you don’t want you or your family to experience problems, it’s essential to start drinking more water. However, it’s not always easy to do as thirst is a bad indicator. Therefore, people leave too late. Thankfully, there are strategic ways to take water on board. Continue reading to find out more.

Here’s how your Lifestyle Choices could be Affecting your Mental Health

You have probably heard a thousand times, that it is so important to exercise. There is more than one reason for this.

It is fantastic at reducing muscle pain and it releases endorphins which can help with depression and even anxiety. At the end of the day, there is not a single exercise that will work for everyone. You have to choose one that works for you and go with it. Start out by doing it in the mornings, and have weekends off. As you become confident, you can then increase the intensity, and this will help the benefits to become more apparent.
