Welcome to a new category of my blog simply called ‘Healthy Tips.” Many times, when I write articles for various publications, I need to find sources for the story. Recently, I wrote an article for Yahoo Shine (click here) about keeping kids healthy. I was looking for experts and parents to chime in and give their favorite ‘tips’ to help kids (and their families) lead a healthy lifestyle.
The feedback for the story was amazing. The sources had some fantastic points of view that could not be ignored, and I thought their opinions should be viewed on the Your Health Journal web site.
So, enjoy my new series, with some ‘great’ insight from some ‘great’ people giving exceptional and educational points of view.
“I can think of tips for everything you are looking at but I find that sleep is really one of the most important things that we don’t focus enough on.”
“To help your child fall asleep at night, have a night night cd that is played only before naps and bedtime. The body will connect the cd to falling asleep. If that fails, hydrotherapy/ Magic Socks is very soothing and calming to the nervous system and helps children fall and stay asleep.”
