I have not played with actual dominoes yet but I have recently seen how fun and cool they can be in the movie Robots, where Mr. Bigweld played with tons and tones of dominoes. Now these rounded ones sure look more fun and more interesting to play with. It will be a perfect Christmas gift for children like me.

Health Tips to Pass on to your Children

grown up stuff, children's health, tips + tricks
one of my favorite healthy activities is playtime! 

Many people believe that children are the future. They represent the next generation, include the next batch of world leaders and are the ones who will continue to make the world go round long after we are gone.Therefore, it is our duty to pass down to them the advice and wisdom we have learned, as well as the skills and practices we strongly believe could benefit their lives and maybe even their children’s lives after that. It is also important to pass on health tips to ensure they live a long, healthy life; health is wealth after all and a lot of people often forget that nowadays.

Give Blood

When you give, you receive and giving blood is no exception. Often, people have a misconception that it’s only the one on the receiving end that benefits from blood donations. In fact, donating blood has its benefits for the donor too. It can help people who are trying to lose weight, since donating a pint of blood burns a good 650 calories plus, regular donation also lowers a person’s chances of getting afflicted with heart-related diseases. For women, donating cord blood or the blood still in a baby’s umbilical cord after birth, is exceptionally beneficial. Cord blood is rich in stem cells similar to those found in bone marrow, which can be used for patients with cancer or blood-related illnesses. Pregnant women can ask for their cord blood to be stored publicly for the use of others or privately, if ever the need arises. Either way, joining the cord blood registry could save a life. Whether that is the life of an unknown person from the other side of the country, your neighbor, your child’s or your own, each is equally important.

Eating Breakfast

Doctors and other health specialists have always encouraged people not to skip meals, especially breakfast. Breakfast gets your day off to a good start and gives you a much needed energy source to start the day. It jump-starts your metabolism, helps you wake up and focus your mind and can even helping you maintain or lose weight. By eating a healthy, balanced meal in the morning, you are more likely to feel satisfied which will prevent you from binge eating at lunch or snacking in between meals. Not everyone can face a big breakfast the moment they wake up so if this is you, try taking something to eat on your journey to work such as fruit or yogurt. Watch out for sugary bars and cereals, as these will give you a short-term energy boost before your sugar levels drop again mid-morning resulting in tiredness. Instead, try protein rich foods like eggs or a hearty bowl of porridge to keep you going longer.

Exercise Regularly

This cannot be stressed enough, especially nowadays, where we live such fast-paced lives. When people struggle to make time for a necessity like breakfast, it’s not a surprise that exercising regularly gets thrown out of the window too. When people think of exercise, they usually imagine big heavy weights and machines at the gym or endless running until your legs fall off. But that doesn’t have to be the case. If you enjoy the bulky gym equipment then by all means go ahead but the key is to simply keep your body moving. Instead of driving or getting a taxi to your destination, walk there. Take the stairs instead of the elevator or the escalator. 10-20 minutes after eating, take a slow walk around the block to help with digestion. Take your bike to work instead of the car. All simple changes that will soon become habit and may actually be an enjoyable part of your day. Not only will exercising give you more energy and help you lose weight but it may even lower your fare!

It is never really early for us tots to develop a healthier habit that we will take up to our adult years. It is also one of my mum’s goals to raise me to be not only physically fit but a healthy kid, too. I may not be donating blood anytime soon {but am sure we’ll be doing that one of these days as mum included that in her bucket list}, but a regular exercise is something we can work on now. Maybe I should join mum on the mat when she finds the time to stretch and do her yoga.

A Beautiful Front Porch Thanks To Christmas Lights

There is going to be lots of Christmas parties and reunions this year. One of these events is most likely going to occur inside your humble abode. Because of that, not only do you need to plan the party ahead of time, you should also take care to welcome your guests properly. Since the front porch is one of the places the visitors will see first, you have to focus your attention there. Here is how to do it.

Decorating the Front Porch

The Pillar Of Beauty ~ You may not be paying attention, but your front porch contains a column. Use it to your advantage. Hang the Christmas Lights you bought from www.christmaslightsetc.com/christmas-lights.htm there however you wish to. It can be parallel to the ground, or in a circular manner. You can even use different colored lights to make a statement. All of these will entrance the guests when they gaze upon it.

Colorful Poinsettia ~ Poinsettia’s are a thing of beauty. They are considered indoor plants, but you can easily put one in your front porch by using an artificial model. You can buy these on the mall which are widely sold during Christmas season. Hang the Poinsettia around the doorway and decorate it with Christmas Lights to make it more noticeable.

Hello Icicle Lights ~ Aside from the twinkly lights and cascading lights that you often use, you can also go for icicle Christmas Lights. They are white in color and simulate the feeling of having snow in your front porch. This is perfect if it does not snow on your place, but it can also be a good contrast to real snow, so you can always use it even if your whole neighborhood is coated with the stuff.

Ho Ho Ho Santa ~Who better to greet the guests than Santa? If you have a model Santa in your home, take it outside and put Christmas Lights all around it.

Be the star this Christmas by decorating your front porch with Christmas Lights. The presentation and decoration in a party is as important as the food and entertainment so do not leave this out.

Jared Quips

These sure are nifty tips on how you can decorate your porch and transform it into one thing of beauty that is sure to serve as a great welcome to your visitors and guests. We do not have a porch, but in lieu  of it, we have this welcoming Merry Christmas decor in our front door as our way to greet those who are thoughtful enough to visit, I think that will do.
