EFFECTIVE TIPS TO MAINTAIN A CLEAN MATTRESS

We spend roughly one third of our lives sleeping in our bed. And it's gross to think just how much dirt it builds up over time. Not only dust mites and other critters lurk in our bed, but also foul stains such as sweat, urine, blood and more. Hence, regular check and cleaning is necessary. Although this process might be time consuming and hard for some, you don't need to call for a professional cleaning service all the time.    It's always handy to have some knowledge on  how we can clean our mattresses . The basic and the simplest methods can make a huge difference. There are surprisingly very easy steps you can do on your own to maintain your mattresses clean. General Cleaning Routine Always make mattress cleaning a routine. Do it every quarter of the year, basically whenever season change. Here's a simple 5 step guide you can follow. 1.

Why Parents Need To Give Their Kids A Break

PixaBay As we get older, it's not uncommon to look back and wish we had our time again. It's kind of ironic, really, because we spend so much time as children wishing we were older, taller and had more freedom. Once we are older, with the wealth of knowledge and experience we have now, we wish we could communicate a little of that to our child self. In truth, kids have a lot of reasons to want to get older . The fact is that as children, we lack the ability to see that with age comes responsibility. If we had to run a home or find a job at that age, we'd be horrified. But as adults, we seem to forget a lot of what wasn't fun about being a child. And even with our own kids, we can be guilty of lying to them and to ourselves about our own childhood. We will tell them things like "At your age I would have been grateful to have..." or "When I was your age, I respected my elders!". And maybe sometimes this is true, but it is also a very distille

How Becoming Organic Moms can Benefit Your Kids?

Hi there, you gorgeous Organic Moms! I believe we’ve got something in common (or are about to have)! J Before I had my family, I was all business and no play; a corner-glass office, always on the wheels to here and there, fast food and an occasional salad serving followed by very little exercising (because I never made the time). After I’ve met my husband, things have started to change gradually for me. Not sure if it was love or me reaching the age when it was about time I started re-thinking my life, but a shift has happened - and for the better. I’ve started taking better care of myself and the choices I make, and suddenly – the life I had been living prior seemed very wrong and opaque. Hold the phone, okay? Before you start judging me, no – I am not one of those women who drop their careers for the sake of their husband’s; I am still working and am as successful as I was, it’s just that I’ve set my (health) priorities straight. Anyhow, we’re now blessed with thre

Why 7-minute workout is perfect for moms?

Moms lack time. They have to perform a variety of roles and duties on a regular basis. They have to prepare the breakfast, send the kids to schools and pack the lunch box of the hubby to the office. They have to do other household chores. All this leaves them with very little time to devote to fitness. So, moms can’t afford joining the gym as their schedule is punishing at most times. So, what options are they left with? They should try the much-publicized 7-minute workout which will suit their schedules and fitness needs perfectly. They needn’t spend hours in the gym now as only a seven-minute time at the home will do the trick. What is 7-minute workout? It’s basically a high-intensity circuit training (HICT) workout in which moms need to do a series of exercises on a continuous basis without no rest in between. They are not new and for years, have been helping people burn fat and boost the metabolism. In this workout, each exercise has to perform for 30 seconds, followed

Who will speak for the voiceless in times of abuse?

Social worker hopes to empower girls around the globe to find their voices While young children, girls in particular, are often warned of the dangers of strangers, sometimes it is family members or trusted individuals who harm them. When entangled in a web of abuse, having an advocate and a path forward are extremely important. Lorraine Sherman Mason, whose career has been in social work, understands the global need for young girls to be encouraged to speak up for help and educated on the steps to take when they find themselves in harmful situations, such as sexual abuse.  “Based on my experience in the field, I know it’s hard to know what to do in certain situations, which is why I want these young girls to be aware and educated,” Mason said. “A recent trip to Africa and Hong Kong further drove home the point that girls all over the world were subjected to similar abuse at the hands of many – strangers and family alike.” Mason works with foster homes, nonprofits,
