What Is Your Favorite Way To Move?


No, I'm not talking about having someone pack your stuff and lift all the boxes to move to a new house, I'm asking you what is your favorite way to move your body?

Notice I didn't say "exercise"? That word seems to draw negative feelings from many who have a hard time exercising for various reasons. 

So my advice? Don't exercise....just move.

So what's YOUR favorite way to move?

Is it walking? Riding a bike? Is it dancing? 
Is it horseback riding? Playing basketball, soccer, etc?  

Find what you LIKE to do that involves movement and just do more of it. 

See exercising sounds like a chore, but if all you think you have to do is MOVE and move to something you enjoy, then there aren't the negative feelings of, "I have to..."

So find what "MOVES YOU" and go do it. You will have much more fun doing it and will do it more often. 

So, what is YOUR favorite way to move?

Then we attach a pretty note that says Merry Christmas (from us) with this quote, “Working with children requires lots of love & lots of energy. You supply the love, we’ll supply the energy.”

Everyone loves these gifts because teachers & coaches can always use more energy and they can only use so many coffee mugs and candy.

I hope we were able to help you out with some ideas. Don’t delay as the days are passing by quickly!

Best wishes,

Julie

Why Does There Seem To Be More Cases Of Bad Behavior In Children?




I see it everywhere I go. Children behaving badly and I mean really bad. Maybe it’s because I am getting older, but there seems to be an increase in the number of children acting out.

Now, don’t misunderstand me, I know there are countless reasons to what I see as every child acts out now and then and I agree. Mine sure does!

I also understand that there are more special needs children such as those with Autism. I think there is a correlation with the rise of those numbers as well.

I also know that some parenting experts would say it’s due to a lack of parental discipline, too much exposure to violence, too much screen time with computes, phones and TV, etc.

To all of that I say, agree, agree, agree.

But I also know there is another cause – the amounts of household toxins have risen.

From perfumy laundry detergents and fabric softeners to household cleaners, to scented fabric sprays, children are much more exposed to dangerous chemicals in the home and school than ever before.

If you don’t think this is a problem, think again.

According to a report to Congress, the Environmental Protections Agency (EPA) stated, “Indoor air pollution is one of the most important environmental health problems.”

Most homes have airborne concentrations of toxic chemicals 2-5 times higher than the air outdoors!

That is really scary as our children spend a great deal of time indoors in school and with the colder temperatures keeping them indoors.

Behaviors seem to be a symptom of this toxicity. Many studies have shown when certain cleaning chemicals are introduced, children’s behaviors change.

One study observed young children playing in a room where scientists observed via a 2 way mirror. The children were playing well with adult driven activities such as playing games, name writing, number writing and reading. Then a bottle of a popular pine smelling cleaner was brought into the room. The bottle was put up out of reach and just the lid removed so that the cleaner’s odor would slowly enter the room. Within ten minutes the scientists observed dramatic changes in the personalities of the children – crying, fighting, some children were writing their numbers backwards, others showing signs of dyslexia and others acting out.

When the bottle of pine smelling cleaner was removed and fresh air allowed into the room, the scientists observed the children slowly calming down and returning to pre-exposure behaviors. Hmmm.

Look at these photos:




Listen to this:

“Of chemicals commonly found in homes, 150 have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer, and psychological disorders.” – Consumer Product Safety Commission

“More children under four die of accidental poisonings at home than are accidently killed with guns at home.” – National Safety Council

What really gets me are quotes like these are said to high ranking government officials and committees along with detailed reports and studies provided. What really bothers me is that nothing is being done about it!

It is truly up to us as parents to protect our children from these very dangerous toxins.

Do you know a child who seems to be worse than normal when it comes to behavior? Do you think those behaviors could be linked to chemicals? Would it be worth a try to use safer products for 30 days and see if that child’s behavior would improve?

Did you ever stop to consider that you are slowly poisoning your children? Does this sound like a harsh question to you?

Think about this for a moment: You have a small toddler. You are a good parent, you keep your cleaning supplies up out of reach. Why? They’re dangerous you say.

You also only clean after your baby has gone to bed. Why? Because they’re dangerous you say.

You never would let your toddler handle bleach or any other toxic chemical. Why? They’re dangerous you say.

Then why are you spraying them around the very same floors they crawl on, the very same windows they love to “kiss”, the very same cute, cuddly clothes and blankets they snuggle in?

What you clean with and what you use to clean your clothes plays a big part in the health of your children. There is absolutely no reason to feel forced to use these chemicals.

There are better alternatives!

This is why I choose Shaklee. They are safe, they work and they are even cheaper to use than the toxic national brands!

Simply click the “Contact Us” tab up top and tell us you want your free brochure. We will mail one out to you with a free sample of Shaklee’s multi-purpose cleaner I literally use to clean just about everything!

Supplements To Avoid


Dear Shaklee Family,

When it comes to choosing the right supplement it can be “buyer beware”. The problem is there are some supplements that are actually dangerous and a few can even be fatal.

A new report has emerged that highlights a new set of dietary supplements being marketed by unscrupulous vitamin manufactures that you need to be made aware of. We wanted to tell you about these new dangerous supplements and we urge you to share this info with your friends.

This report, authored by Dr. Stephen Chaney is a real eye opener. I trust Dr. Chaney as he does such thorough research into every study, paper and journal publication to help us better understand what it all means.

You can read his article on these dangerous new supplements here: Supplements To Avoid

As the doctor states, these dangerous supplements are not easy to spot on the labels so you must educate yourselves if you are buying products other than Shaklee’s.

This is just another reason I trust Shaklee to meet all my supplement needs. They do research and extensive testing into anything new being offered and they only will release a product after years of this research and testing to make sure that it not only works, but that it is safe. That is why you will never see ingredients mentioned in this article in any of Shaklee’s products. You can trust that Shaklee puts your health and safety before profits.

This is evident when there are times where we are unable to purchase a product. Shaklee does such intense testing of its raw ingredients before, during and after manufacture, that if they detect any contaminant or a problem of any kind they will halt production till it is corrected. Even if it means running out of product making it inconvenient for the rest of us. Shaklee will not release a contaminated product.

Shaklee performs over 100,000 tests annually on their products to keep us safe and to make sure they are working as expected. This is why they work. This is why I trust them and you can, too.

So read the article about these new supplement ingredients to avoid that could potentially be fatal: Supplements To Avoid

You can learn more about Shaklee’s difference here: The Shaklee Difference

To your good health,


Julie

Recipe: Chocolate Covered Bananas


Do you have some over-ripe bananas dying a slow death on the counter?

No one will eat them because they are yucky, right?

Here’s a great way to use them and have a semi-healthy treat! You only want to use very ripe bananas so the mushy ones are perfect for this.

Peel bananas and cut off any brown areas.

Slice bananas in the size you want. I like to cut mine where they can be eaten in 2-3 bites. The chocolate will melt on little fingers if too big.

Melt some semi-sweet chocolate chips in a bowl for 1 minute in the microwave. Stir.

Take tongs and dip banana slices in chocolate. Take a spoon and cover banana slice on all sides with chocolate. With tongs transfer chocolate covered banana slices to a freezer safe plate, arrange in just one layer and not touching. Do not cover plate.

Work fast as the chocolate will cool quickly and harden. You may want to do melt small batches of chocolate at a time to prevent this.

Place open plate in freezer till frozen. They don't take long to freeze. Once frozen, wrap in small, individual pieces of wax paper, put in freezer bag and pop back into freezer.

Now you have individually wrapped, finger sized, semi-healthy treats the kids will love.

They taste like a frozen ice cream treat. Even those who say they don’t like bananas will like these since they taste more like ice cream.

Don’t worry about how they look. Mine do not look professionally dipped, but my family obviously doesn’t care as they disappear fast!

Hope you like this new way to use mushy bananas and the good banana sort of balances out the not-so-good for you chocolate, right? I like the way you think. ;)

An Easy and Safe Way To Clean Your Oven




Oven cleaning – not everyone’s favorite task.

The Holidays are coming and so are your guests. If the reason you ban everyone from the kitchen is because you don’t want them to see your dirty oven, you now have a way to get that oven clean.

Even if you have a self-cleaning oven you still have to get in there and clean it some as not all burnt on food comes off so easy. Then there’s the smell. Yuck!

So you write oven cleaner on your grocery list. But wait! There is a heavy price to pay for using oven cleaners.

Oven cleaners are some of the most dangerous and toxic products on the market. They contain highly corrosive ingredients that can instantly burn skin, mouth, throat and stomach. They can also cause permanent blindness. Ever have a nozzle on a spray can pointing the wrong way? That can be really detrimental with oven cleaners.

Fumes from these dangerous cleaners can cause severe lung damage. Studies have also shown damage can occur to the brain, kidneys and the reproductive system.

There is also no safe place to store an oven cleaner can. Little ones can easily find them and it’s easy to get busy and forget it’s laying out on the counter.

So what do you do when all you want to do is clean your oven and fast without poisoning yourself and everyone else you love?

Try Shaklee’s Scour Off. This amazing little cleaner is so powerful and yet so safe and you won’t believe me till you try it yourself.

Here’s how you can clean an oven fast and safe without the need for gloves or a gas mask. And it’s even safe enough to have your kids help you!

Remove the racks and soak them in hot, soapy water. Try Basic-H for this.

Wipe out any large particles. Fill a bowl or spray bottle of hot, soapy water. Again Basic-H works well and can be safely mixed with other Shaklee cleaners. Wet down area to clean.

Take a very wet scrubby sponge, apply a small amount of Scour Off paste to it and lightly scrub. Add more water as needed to sponge. Very little scrubbing effort is needed as the burnt on food is no match for Scour Off.

Rinse with a clean, wet cloth, then sit back and enjoy the sparkle. 

The next time you open your oven while you have guests over, they will be amazed at your very clean oven! It’s OK to let them think you worked hard on it. ;)

More info on Scour Off:

Here’s an exclusive scouring cleanser that sets a new standard.

It’s a paste, so it doesn’t form dust clouds, yet it gently removes stains other cleansers can't and is great for cleaning tubs, ovens, sinks, and tiles and it will even remove rust, and is great for cleaning these surfaces: copper, grout, cement, ceramic, and imitation marble.

Natural ingredients remove the toughest dried-on splatters and spills, burned-on grease, baked-on food, and sticky messes without hazardous chemicals or toxic fumes.

Scour Off is made from natural mineral abrasives and biodegradable cleaning agents. It does not contain chlorine, bleach, or dye.

Wide-mouth jar makes it easy to use.

Clean Credentials
  • Nontoxic
  • Natural abrasives
  • No harsh chemicals

Get Shaklee’s Scour Off today and try it risk free. If you don’t love it as much as we do, we will refund your money. That’s Shaklee’s 100% guarantee.
