5 Steps We Can Take to Protect our Brain Health

brain healthI recently attended a seminar on the subject of brain health and it was a real eye-opener.  How many times have we heard “you are what you eat” and just brushed it aside?  Well, it’s true and the impact on our brains is immense.

At this time Alzheimer’s Dementia is estimated to affect 5.4 million Americans and by the year 2050, the number of people 65 and over to have Alzheimer’s may triple to 13.8 million Americans.  Shocking numbers!

I don’t want Alzheimer’s disease, no one does.  Genetics does play a role in our risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and I know we can’t change that, but what we need to realize is the role our nutrition and other lifestyle choices are influencing the disease.  Read more….

I love having our grandchildren over for play days and sleepovers and wanted to have a room for them they considered their own.  I’ve worked to create just that space for them.

The room had to be appropriate for boys and girls, so I chose two shades of green for the walls.  I purchased paint from Lowes and painted three walls a pale green and one wall bright green.

When decorating their room, I needed more space for storing toys, books, and games.  Paul, who is great at building things, removed the door Read more….

Car Seats

This is a sponsored post.

I have no memories of ever seeing a car seat when I was a child.  When my children were born, we had car seats but there wasn’t very much emphasis put on them, at least until my last child was born.  I know we used them but probably very incorrectly.

Things are very different now and with good reason.  Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13.  That’s why it is so incredibly important for us to choose the right car seat and install it correctly. Read more….

Turning an Empty Wall Into a Cozy Space

wall decorWe had an empty wall in our living room which was straight across from our couch, which meant that each time I sat on the couch I looked at the empty wall and thought “I need to do something with that”.  If you’re anything like me sometimes these projects take a long time to go from a thought to action!

One day as I was looking at the wall I thought of how an old church pew with pillows would look really good on that wall and at the same time provide some more seating.  I tried to explain my vision to my husband, Paul. Somehow I don’t think he could quite see that vision but he was willing to trust mine! Read more…

Sentence a Day Writing Challenge…. August 2017

Sentence a Day

 

This is the second month that I’ve participated in the Sentence a Day Writing Challenge.  I’ve tried my hand at journaling in the past, but have never been able to stick with it. This concept of a sentence a day seems to work for me!

So, let August begin…

Aug 1st – Is a Tuesday, so today I am working which means I am visiting my patients and hoping to make a difference in their lives!

Aug  2nd – I sent a text to my son early this evening and received this response “on my way to the ER, Jacob broke his arm”, so immediately we were off to the ER to check on him where we found a super brave 5-year-old little boy waiting to be seen by the doctor. Read more….
