Health is a Way of Life
We live in a goal-oriented society. Most of us imagine a healthier version of ourselves and make plans to achieve it, with mixed success and satisfaction. Instead, let's look at health as a process, informed by knowledge, which we practice a little bit every day.
An Active Approach to Feeling Better: Exercises for Lower Back Pain
About 80 percent of adults experience low back pain at some point during their lifetime. When it comes to pain (whether it's your back, knees, or elsewhere) it's easy for professional guidance to sound like a broken record, but it's true -- an active approach to care by regularly performing exercises for lower back pain is vital, even if you have yet to suffer regular pain in that region.
Best Crib Safety Practices for the Winter
When you're getting your nursery ready, you may be tempted by some of the crib displays you see in stores and magazines. The cuddly toys and cozy blankets create a nice image, but they're not actually safe for your sleeping infant. Good crib safety practice means keeping the crib free of extra items. Don't worry, your child will have plenty of time to snuggle with those toys when she or he gets older.
Keep Your Child Safe With Proper Car Seat Installation
You want your child to be as safe and secure as possible at all times, especially when you're zipping to and fro in your vehicle of choice. Cars are an important part of modern life, but they do have inherent risks. According to Safe Kids Worldwide, motor-vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for children between the ages of one and 19. Experience and research have shown that proper car seat installation is the best way to protect your child in case of an accident. Unfortunately, DMV.org reports that seven out of 10 car seats are not installed properly. When installing a car seat for your little one, be sure that your child is well-protected.
