Splash! Water Safety Tips for You and Your Tots

October 6, 2017 1:32 am

Nothing is sweeter than bath time with your new babe; however, when the phone rings or the big brother is calling you from the next room over, it's important to keep safety front and center. Never forget that 30 seconds can change your life forever. With that in mind, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) offers safety tips to help prevent children from drowning in and around the home.

·       Never leave a baby alone, or with young siblings, in a bathtub, even for a second. Always keep baby within arm's reach. Children can drown quickly and silently.

·       Keep the toilet lid down, and keep young children out of the bathroom when unsupervised. Consider placing a latch on the bathroom door out of reach of young children.

·       Be sure all containers with liquids are emptied immediately after use. Do not leave empty containers in yards or around the house where they may accumulate water and attract young children.

·       Always secure the safety cover on your spa or hot tub.

·       Learn CPR. It can be a lifesaver.

Fresh Fall Health Tips

October 6, 2017 1:32 am

Many equate the summer or even the spring with the season for health and wellness. However, despite cooling temps and less daylight, fall is a quiet contender for a healthy, happy season. Below are a handful of tips from MultiVu for keeping healthy all fall.

Toasty tip: With the cooler weather coming in, it's the perfect time of year to enjoy hot herbal teas, which are great for fat-burning, such as green tea, which can boost metabolism. Broth-based veggie soups are also good for warmth and good nutrition, including much needed fiber.

Sweet indulgences: Who doesn't enjoy the delightful array of fall desserts? What's important is to not only to burn off some of those calories, but to take care of your teeth as well! Colgate Total Advanced Health Mouthwash has a unique shake-to-activate formula that combines two different liquids into one powerful, bacteria-removing mouthwash. The dual-phase formula mouthwash is proven to remove 24 times more bacteria for a healthier mouth. All you need to do is simply shake to activate and then rinse to clean (versus ordinary, non-antibacterial mouthwashes).

Plan a getaway: Studies continue to reveal that vacationing is an important part of leading a healthy and happy life, and good choices can help maximize its benefit to ensure you get the best value for your money and the biggest emotional return. One of the best ways to do this is by choosing a vacation rental home, especially if you're traveling with kids. You don't have to go to bed when the kids do, you don't have to eat out for every meal, saving money and calories, and there is plenty of space for working out.

Explore the outdoors: Fall is an excellent time to enjoy outdoor exercise. Consider exploring local hiking paths, setting up a circuit in a nearby park, or joining an outdoor boot camp or cycling club. It's the perfect time of year to breathe in some crisp air and burn extra holiday calories.

Team up with your family: This is a great time of year to be active and healthy, whether it's prepping and trying new healthy meals, or taking turns choosing physical activities that each member of the family enjoys. You might try something new like joining a recreational Frisbee golf team or picking up tennis for the first time. Make fitness fun this fall!
