As moms, we tend to put everyone else first and put our life on the back burner. The truth is, if we aren’t taking care of ourselves then we aren’t going to be able to effectively take care of others. Sometimes it feels like there isn’t enough time in the day to do things like get a workout in, pick out a cute outfit, or even eat! Despite our best efforts, we aren’t able to get more hours added to the day, but we have something that can help getting through it a little easier. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just snap your fingers and a box filled with a variety of items that promote a better life arrived at your door? No problem, a FabFitFun Box is just that.

Having an occupied schedule can be a bit tiresome and challenging on a daily basis, especially when you unintentionally forget everything all about your health. A lot of people apparently leave behind their healthy habits and routines due to busy schedules.

Ah, summer time. Time to be outside. Time for fun in the sun. Time where the kids are home all.the.time.
If you are a self-proclaimed #fitmom, trying to find time when you can workout is seemingly more difficult in the summer than it is during the school year. Even though you don’t have the busy-ness of the regular school year, summer time seems to be more busy instead of less busy. Swim lessons, pool time, vacations, summer activities, summer camp shuffling, and never-ending playdates can make getting your workout in difficult. So sometimes you have to improvise, and that improvisation will come in the form of “What can I do to keep the kids occupied and outside long enough to actually get my heart rate up?”
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.

Why is our memory so important?
Retaining information in our long-term memory bank is one of the greatest joys we can have in life. There are many different types of information worth keeping, but if we’re going to make the best use of that memory (and the information it holds), it has to be properly exercised. While there are numerous ways for you to improve memory, we’ve found that if we start developing those muscles when our children are young that our brains will operate much more efficiently.
With that in mind, today we’re sharing 6 secrets to improving memory for your kids.
Postpartum depression and anxiety are mood disorders that occur after a woman experiences childbirth. Anyone can experience postpartum depression or anxiety – it does not discriminate based on age or ethnicity. It is a hard disorder to pinpoint because there are several other variables in which people may think are the cause of the sudden change of mood, such as exhaustion and sleep deprivation, lifestyle change, possible issues with breastfeeding, and physical recovery.
