We need to Avoid food that contain artificial sweeteners, foods that contain high amounts of sugar, saturated fat or caffeine.

Processed foods like deli meat have been linked to triggering ADHD symptoms in children. Instead choose foods that contain antioxidants, choline, omega-3 fatty acids, and complex carbohydrates that boost brain health.

Fruits & nuts for snacks

Apples

Pears

Oranges

Kiwi

To add Protein to a healthy diet :

beans, almonds, walnuts, Brazil nuts, multi grain cereal. Eggs, milk, goat cheese, and Greek yogurt.

Fish for omega 3 & fatty acid

Salmon, mackerel, fresh tuna, trout, sardines, herring.

Making tuna wraps, sandwiches and pasta salads for kids lunches is a great way to add good fat to their diet.

For salads, sandwiches, and wraps use Green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale. These greens are full of folate and vitamins .

How to? for a good night sleep

what can be more energizing & rejuvenating than a good night sleep?

You open your eyes & realize you slept the entire night tucked in your bed wrapped in the warm soft comforter.

One sure way to set our bedroom for a solid sleep is to pay attention to how we have placed the furniture in the bedroom.

The art of feng shui creating positive flow.

Any room with unbalanced energy not only can affect our health, but our relationships, and finances too.

Here are some feng shui rules to follow for the bedroom;

Solid wood headboard

1- your head should be near a solid wall. Using a wood headboard or solid upholstered headboard.

 

2- Avoid these colors: reds, purples, blues, and black.

3- No mirrors, which would be difficult to do,  but mirrors make the energies of the bedroom very active, or yang. keep it to one only, and don’t hang it on the wall near the foot of your bed.

4- Try not to have a TV or any electronic devices in the bedroom.

A parent’s 1st day of school resolution

1st day of school

Parent to parent conversation:

Speaking as a parent we found ourselves telling our children start this year with power and strength.

Open mind for the new teachers new materials, new classmates. Then it downed on us, that we feel the same way as a mom and a dad, a new school year should be the start of a new attitude right along with our children.

We had an amazing, fun summer. We had the chance to hear more stories about friends at school. Who is still fun to be around and who has left the circle of friendship. At least for now!!

Do your best everyday, work on what you are best, were the words we used as we ate together and spend the last summer days Together. 

We know schedules take over our lives. Sports, music classes, field trips, and projects, but our promise to be there, but not to overwhelm, quietly listen and not to teach or judge is our promise. Have a good heart and an open mind is our resolution for the new school year.

This morning, “we love you very much” were the words we chose to leave them with for their first day of school.❤️
