A Day In The Life Of A Family of 11

“Are you done yet?” After a cordial hello how are you, greeting, we’re then met with that direct and curious question my family hears quite often. Who in this day and age has a family with 9 children?! Sure, you could watch the amazing families on TV who are famous for their multiple children and the lives they lead, but what about the families in your own home town?

Don’t Judge Your Motherhood

It seems like more and more moms are bombarded with perfection. The need to portray this picture perfect life – partly it’s our own fault – unfollow, unplug, delete social media – but yet we cannot. For one reason or another we love social media too much to get rid of it. It does serve a purpose – it allows us to connect to those we love, share memories, pictures, and videos across the miles. But it also can bring us down. Don’t hate the player, hate the game. Right?

7 Reasons Why Infrared Saunas Should Be Next on Your Wellness To-Do List

After a long, strenuous workout, many people head into their gym’s sauna for a period of relaxation. A sauna’s heat mimics that of moderate exercise – increasing heart rate and increasing sweat output – so it is a favorite among those who are active no matter their level of fitness. Traditional saunas are the ones you will see most often within gyms and spas. They use a heated room with a high temperature to create the desired effects. A lesser known and increasingly more common type of sauna is an infrared sauna. Although its main purposes are similar to that of a traditional sauna, it has particular health benefits that make some choose these over traditional saunas.
