Self-Reflection in the New Year

a special feature from Bonnie Compton, Parent Coach & Child /Adolescent Therapist*
It’s a new year and hopefully a chance for a clean slate. Does that thought excite or terrify you? Often when we think of the New Year, we think of New Year Resolutions—commitments we make to better ourselves. However, there can be heaviness associated with New Year’s resolutions. You tell yourself, “I’m going to lose 10 pounds” (while your internal dialogue says: “Why do I continue to eat mindlessly, grabbing that last piece of cake…what is wrong with me?”)— or, “I’m going to exercise 5 days per week.” (Internal dialogue says: “I said the same thing last year and that didn’t happen! This year, I’m really going to do it…I can’t let myself fail this time!”)

It’s Okay…Press the “Mute” Button

a special feature from Kay Ziplow & Leslie Zinberg, Founders

Holiday time and knowing that a new year approaches we find ourselves out of breath so to speak! Come to think of it, our daily lives are so very busy that rarely do we intentionally indulge and hit the “mute” button. If you already do this, you are one of the lucky ones who have come to realize that once in a while, this is an important personal exercise for your physical and mental being. Hitting your personal mute button doesn’t mean you are disconnected; rather it infers how truly connected you are. Because our lives are bombarded with consistent stimulus and distractions and routines that comprise the function of our day, we need to take that step back and shut it all down and retrieve a moment or two to feel ourselves and our own presence as we navigate the busy world in which we live. Here’s two simple and mindful suggestions we have for you, and yes, you are worth it.

We have looked into how this oil could be as big a problem to your health as sugar, and have broken down the most important facts for you:

Your Grandchildren’s Food Allergies: A Guide for Grandparents

If you have any experience in the food allergy world, you likely know the uphill battle that adults and children with food allergies, as well as parents of children with food allergies, face when it comes to educating those around you. From scenes in TV and film that make fun of allergic reactions to the “we never had food allergies when we were growing up” attitude (which, by the way, is somewhat true), it’s a challenge to get those around us who do not live with it to understand its severity. An allergen to your grandchild is like kryptonite to Superman. One bite (or less!) of the wrong food can lead to an anaphylactic reaction, which happens quickly and, if not treated right away, is potentially fatal. I will say it again: potentially fatal.

Finding Meaning in The Mundane

At the very moment we wake in the morning, human nature is establishing our perspective on the day ahead. It’s almost like a blinking light that goes off and sets us up for the hours moving forward. The humdrum of daily repetition can make it easy to slip into the lull of autopilot without taking control of where and what can be. But, if we are willing to give ourselves a gentle little shake, to become truly awake to the day’s possibilities, we can instead notice all the goodness hiding in plain sight.

Yes, Grandma Knows Best!

Back in her day, Grandma probably had no idea what “eating clean” was if you asked her. And even if you tried explaining it to her, she’d probably say she didn’t give a hoot. Still, her diet wasn’t all Salisbury steak and Jell-O salad. Your granny and her gang ate plenty of foods that were actually really healthy, too. The foods were simplistic and easy, and while today they might not graze the top of the ‘cool‘ list, they certainly have value and are not outdated for your nutritional needs. Here are six to consider. (Instagram them enough times, and who knows- you might start seeing what grandma knew, all that clearer!)*
