Yoga 101: The Benefits of Meditation

Many people recogonize meditation largely as a spiritual practice. But if you didn’t know, it also has many health benefits. Today yoga and meditation techniques are being implemented to treat life threatening diseases, stress, obesity and a myriad of other health and fitness problems. Some benefits of meditation are: • It lowers oxygen consumption. • It decreases respiratory rate. • It increases blood flow and slows the heart rate. • Leads to a deeper level of relaxation. • Good for people with high blood pressure as it brings the B.P. to normal. • Reduces anxiety attacks by lowering the levels of blood lactate. • Decreases muscle tension (any pain due to tension) and headaches.

Start doing good by you body, it’s sure to repay the favor some day...

Toddler sports: The do’s and Don’t’s By Erinn Hartwell

Encouraging your kids to play sports is one of the best ways to help them develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime. But some parents take that support t oo far by emphasizing winning rather than

developing skills and having fun. The crazy sports parent isn’t that uncommon. Here are some tips to make sure you don’t become one of them. The line between encouraging your child and pushing him beyond his abilities can be somewhat easy to cross. Youth sports parents occasionally need to be reminded of some basic “do’s and don’ts” to help children become happy, healthy and confident young athletes. Youth Sports Parent Do’s: • Encourage your child to try and play any sport he or she enjoys. The biggest motivation for kids to play sports is having fun, and they often drop out because they are no longer finding the activity pleasurable.

•Support your child’s decision not to play a sport if he or she doesn’t want to. Pushing a child into sports may lead to conflict, poor motivation and other problems at home.

•Let your child make mistakes. Doing so is part of learning, and if kids are so afraid of messing up that they quit trying, they unknowingly stop improving.

When in doubt, be as supportive as you can be. Remeber to always make sure he/she is having fun and not taking things way too serious. Afterall toddler sports is all about the kids learning, playing, staying active and nothing more. If you hold these things true, the summer should be filled with lots

2013 Top Business Trends By Ryan K Jackson Custom Confections & Pretzel Treats

Remember when virtual reality was all the rage? What about the daily-deal explosion? We love a good story and a quick cash infusion, but when it comes down to it, we’re far bigger fans of businesses built on a solid foundation. we’ve got our eyes on what will help anchor your business, present or future, in reality. From cooking up goodies that satisfy America’s growing taste for all things spicy -- to helping workers who are locking the door on traditional office setups, these trends are built to last (at least for a while). Consider this a jumping-off point as you envision new products and services -- and as a heads-up on evolving ways to manage your current business. Now, to your future. The Rise of Big Data Cutting-edge entrepreneurs are stepping up to crunch the vast (and ever-growing) stockpile of information too large for companies to store and analyze in-house. Servers are in. Domestic Production Makes a Comeback Factors like more affordable labor, higher shipping costs, a better financial climate and a surge of homegrown innovation mean the U.S. manufacturing startup universe is experiencing a renaissance. Upper Management Managers Who Understand the Importance of Goofing Off are winning. CEOs get the message about the value of fun in the workplace and its contribution to the bottom line. Hot Sauce Goes Mainstream Move over ketchup. Hot sauce is now one of the 10 fastest-growing industries in the U.S.

Parental Mode:

What kind of parent are you? By Janetha Richard

Old school, New Age, Modern family? What kind of parent are you? In todays society, thee seems to be a politically correct definition for everything. But when it comes to parenting, what is the correct method? Some mothers use formuls form birth, some breast feed until toddler age. Some parents use spankings, some use time out, some use no disci pline at all. Who’s right and who’s wrong? Well, of course there is no poitically correct answer for tht either. How you parent is really up to you. But what we have found it there is a certain type of parent. Some are lenient and fun, some are stearn and strict. Takek this quick quiz to determine where you are in the parent spectrum.

1) When it come to bath time you_________________ your partner____________________ a.Gather everyone and get it done b. wrangler them in and let them soak until they wrinkle c. get them in, help them wash and tidy up afterwards.

2) a. b. c.

During the morning routine breakfast for you is _________________ your parner_______________ Healthy and nutrious Whatever is fast and easy Hot cooked meal, and everyone must clean the

3) a. b. c.

5) a. b. c.

When it comes to sleep overs you say______________________ your spouse says______________ Only with family and relatives It’s okay if you know the parents and the child Absolutely not!

Scores: A=1, B=2, C=3 5-8: Leanient and Cool Yep, this means that you are the really cool and laid back parent. However be sure that when it’s necessary to put your foot down you can. Or that lenient and cool stance can prove to be troublesome and lead to some pretty disrespectful behavior in the future. 9-12: Balance and in Control Okay, you can pat your self on the back. It seems that you know when to chil and when to make the crew tow the line. Everthnig is not a major event but you can get it done when you need to. 13-15: Controlling If your nembers ar here, it’s not neccessarly a bad thing, it just means that you like things arderly, safe nd in control. This does however also have a double edged blade to this scenario. Being too controlling can prov to be detrimental,when it come to social interaction and decision making in the future. Just be sure to micro manage your battles wisely.
