Important elements of a detox program

On a daily basis, the body is exposed to toxins. Toxins are harmful to the body in many ways, but fortunately, there is a quick and easy way to reduce the amount of harmful elements in the body. ClearVite is a cheap and extremely effective cleansing and detoxifying product; it offers the body the minerals, vitamins and other nutrients it needs to operate efficiently. 
The CR line of these delicious products has an incredibly tasty chocolate and raspberry flavored multivitamin that is completely enzyme based. It comes in the form of an herbal supplement and a mineral powder. The company also offers sample versions of this tasty vitamin for you to try at no charge. 

When you make the commitment to take this nutritional supplement as a meal substitute, you will be making a choice that will allow your body to essentially restart itself and remove any toxins in the process. Because we are physically unable to develop enough antibodies to combat all the toxins we encounter every day, our bodies develop health issues and will degrade slowly. If you don’t take care of your body, these toxins will build up and can cause many health issues, such as cancer, hormone imbalances, digestive issues, neurological conditions and immune system disorders. 

By taking care of your body through proper amounts of nutrition, exercise and detoxification, you can help your body get itself back on track. While it is true that you can’t always control what you are exposed to, you can take steps to handle toxins that you are exposed to.

If you are experiencing issues with your skin, depression, no appetite, obesity, headaches, constipation, bad breath, bloating, pain in the joints or chronic fatigue, you might want to consider investigating a detoxification program.

Before starting any detoxification program, it is important to make sure that the supplements you are taking are high quality. Because the majority of health products are unregulated by the federal government, many vitamins are poor in quality, as companies rely on fillers and second grade products to keep costs low. You need to make sure that the company manufacturing your health supplements is committed to the highest quality possible before you start your detoxification program. If you are pregnant, taking prescription drugs or are under 18, always remember to consult with a health care professional before starting a healthcare program.

Roadtrip 2016: Making Memories Even at Rest Stops

When you  take your family to road trips, it is important to  enjoy every mopment even the rest stops.  Even though you want to  arrive at your destinationa as quickly as possible, it is important to enjoy   every part of the journey.  
Whenever we go on a road trip, I always pack snacks and drinks because we all love to munch on something while on the road.  As a result, we stop a lot.  It drives my husband a little nuts sometimes but I always told him that he needs to rest his  body as well especially his legs and arms as he does all the driving.  
It was a couple of years ago when we  took pictures in the same place and it made me realized by looking at the photos how fast my children have grown since then.
Bringing a ball or something we can  play with after the restroom  break is a must for us.  The kids have so much energy that they get impatient in the car,  so releasing some of the energy while on the rest stop helps a lot and it's fun.
I get stares from other travelers when we take pictures even at rest stops but I don't really care.  My son gets embarass  when it's time for  picture taking but I make him  anyway lol.
My husband have been into so many  awesome places around the world when he was still in the Navy but he never took pictures so when he is telling the kids stories,  there's no picture to show  them how beautiful those places were.  That's why, I make sure to capture every moment we have,  so that  they can reminisce someday by looking at the photos.

8 Reasons to Take Your Kids Camping

Camping with kids is a lot of work. When considering taking your kids camping, it is easy to get overwhelmed by the idea and decide to do something else. Particularly with younger kids, camping can seem like the opposite of a vacation. Fortunately, not only are there health benefits of camping, but there are plenty of other rewards from taking your kids camping that make the effort well worth it. The following will introduce you to 8 reasons to take your kids camping.
Reason #1: Camping gets your Kids Away from the Screen
It seems like many kids beg for more and more time in front of the screen; whether it be the television, the computer, the tablet or your phone. It can be easier to give in at times than to battle with them. When you are camping, there is usually no internet access. And if by chance there is, you can set a no screens rule when spending time outdoors. There may be some complaints initially but it will catch on and the kids will stop asking. And they will learn to become engaged in the other activities that are available.
Reason #2: Camping Introduces your Kids to New Experiences
Camping means sleeping in a tent, cooking outside on a camping stove, building a campfire, and often roasting marshmallows. These are not experiences we would typically have at home. You may eat different foods when you camp and spend time in different surroundings. Depending on where you camp, it may include hiking or some time in a river or lake.
Reason #3: Your Kids are Active while Camping
There are significant health benefits of camping. Even for the most sedentary of people, when camping you will have to be somewhat active. There is usually a walk to everything; whether it is the bathroom or a sink to wash dishes. You will have to set up your campsite and the kids will be helping. And if you are staying at a campground they may meet other kids to play with which will keep them busy and running around.
Reason #4: You can Build Family Memories with your Children
Your kids will remember these camping trips and will bring up memories from them for years to come. You don’t have to do anything particularly special on the trip; the experience of camping will be enough. My kids never bring up the big planned adventures. It is the simple stuff and the mishaps that they remember and reminisce about later.

Reason #5: Camping helps to Foster a Love of the Outdoors
I am delighted when I hear my son say he loves the “smell of outside” or that he can’t wait to go camping. His time outdoors not only introduced him to the wonders of nature, but allowed his appreciation of it to flourish.

Reason #6: Camping helps Kids to Develop New Skills
Camping is an opportunity to teach kids how to build a campfire, or how to cook with an outdoor camp stove. The will help set up the tent and ultimately learn how to do it themselves. Obtain a camping guide and walk your kids through the different activities that go into setting up camp. Camping offers many opportunities for kids to learn something new and develop skills that they may not have had the chance to otherwise. Gaining these skills will lead to kids building their confidence.

Reason #7: Camping is great for Imagination
Spending time outdoors is great for kids’ imagination. Sticks become sorts and trees and rocks become forts. Kids’ creativity tends to come out when spending some time outdoors.

Reason #8: Enjoy One Another with Fewer Distractions
When camping, you will find there are fewer distractions than there are in life outside of the wilderness. Not only is it a time for no television or computer, often even your phone won’t work. It seems many jobs now come with an expectation that employees will work even when they are not in the office. Being outdoors makes this difficult if not impossible, giving you a real break and allowing you to focus on your children. For their part, without the option of television, movies or video games, kids will be more open to other activities and to spending time with their family.


There are plenty of reasons to take kids camping; while it may seem like a huge effort to get going, it is likely you will find it worth the effort. Please share your reasons to take your kids camping.
