For many of us, it’s hard to imagine life without our mothers. Their guidance, unconditional love and support is what helped us become who we are today.
On Mother’s Day, what better way to show our mom or mother figures how much we care, then to remind her about the importance of her health, so that we can have her around for many years to come?
Mothers tend to put the rest of the family’s health ahead of their own. While being a mother always means caring for others, there are a few ways Mom can take care of herself every day to live a healthier life.
She waited anxiously for your arrival into the world, witnessed your first steps, bandaged your scraped knees, read your favorite bedtime stories, comforted you through heartaches, and supported your dreams and ambitions. It may seem odd to call being a Mother a job, but it’s most definitely work, with long hours and no sick pay. With that being said, being a Mom is also one of the most rewarding jobs there is.
Although nutrition is important for everyone, it is especially important for our children since it’s directly linked to their early growth and development.
Unfortunately, our kids’ height potential for the most part is based on genetics, which means there are no guaranteed miracle foods that will make your child a 6’5’’ NBA all-star player down the road. But you can help your little ones growth potential along the way by providing them with a balanced diet containing foods rich in nutrients.
At times we tend to convince ourselves that our “mom and dad superpowers” really do exist- the powers that allows us to shelter our kids 24/7 by keeping a close watch on their every move. When in reality, these are impossible standards to uphold.
In the first months, or in some cases, the first few years of our children’s lives, we can be home with them day and night, having the peace of mind knowing we are there to protect them.
It’s possible that tax refund checks maybe the largest single lump sum of money the average American family receives in a typical year.
In February, Channel 3 News reported from a survey that fewer Americans plan to use their tax refund to pay down debt or increase savings. Instead, results discovered that more of us will simply spend it.
When that much-anticipated refund gives your bank account a face lift in the upcoming weeks, don’t let your money be spent just anywhere.
As a parent or caregiver, one of the most important things we can do is to recognize the early signs of autism in our child. Familiarizing ourselves with the common developmental milestones that our child should be reaching during their first years can make a tremendous impact both early on and later in life for the child and the family.
On Autism Awareness Day and throughout the month of April, MedicAlert is helping to shine light on all individuals affected by autism worldwide. Each night, our building will light up blue to show our support in helping to raise awareness about the millions living with autism today.
This year marks the eighth annual World Autism Awareness Day and serves as a national effort to bring a greater understanding to the subject of autism.
