Yoga is fantastic it will only help you improve your overall health and well-being and mental function. I love National Yoga Month and Wedderspoon, its a perfect mixture.http://www.yogahealthfoundation.org/yoga_month

Fun game but Warning!! This app may be used to lure children into secluded places the game is already linked to injuries, bad driving and opportunistic robberies.
Okay everyone is Pokemon crazy, after walking 5 miles around NYC, I was into it. But I could not help but thinking about Safety Tips for playing this game and understanding it!
-Kids are distracted, are far more open to talk to strangers who are playing the game, so make sure that you know where they are and don’t let them play solo, before they know it they are out of their comfort zone. The Pokeman makes it fun to explore and go to new places.
-Kids are ignoring "stranger danger", and falling for fake posts that are on instagram and snap chat in there neighborhoods.
-knowing where the Pokemon is and the predators wait
-eyes rare glued to screen bumping into people, loosing track of where they are
-going out and leaving the familiar area, walking further then they realize
The game could be manipulated by break ins to system
-the game can lure kids to water for “water species Pokemon”
-Also bring a charger with you when you play, batteries on phone get used very quickly
– Commissioner of NYC Bill Bratton, hates this game, due to the accidents and robberies that have been happening around NYC http://nypost.com/2016/07/14/nypd-commissioner-bill-bratton-hates-pokemon-go/
Tips to stay healthy and have fun this summer!
Also without breaking the bank!
Encourage kids and caretakers join in to play sports such as soccer, basketball, skateboarding or surfing, boogie board Remember all summer long wear comfortable shoes likes crocs www.crocs.com so you can keep moving from the boat to the playground, beach and backyard.
The more you move the more you can build strength, coordination and mental stamina doing unplanned fun activities. Walk, local parks, to the store, church friends house, wherever your heart desires. Its calming to the mind and great for your body. Also you will find that you sleep better with the fresh air.
Set up an obstacle course packed with different challenges. This is so much fun, a egg on a spoon race, wheel barrel, water balloon challenge.
Book club and Art Club It’s a fantastic way for them to socialize and read a book. Make it fun let your kids pick the book. Even if they just read a few chapters or draw pictures to join in the conversation its good constructive fun.
Movie night is great, its fun to watch Dad’s favorite and Moms favorite comedies too. Very nostalgic and always a good conversation starter.
Meditate, in this busy world I know it’s hard to stop but just sit unplugged, for 5 minutes in with your eyes closed unplugged.
You will see how you slowly increase to 10, 15 minutes. You will feel more refreshed and productive. A healthy mind and body makes you more productive and a better problem solver.

Earth Day: Green Chic Lifestyle!
Happy Earth Day 2016! To celebrate such an important occasion, I have curated a special selection of mouth-watering items that will make your life easier and more environmentally-conscious. Who said that green couldn't be chic?
This is a genuinely ecological and simple soap that can be used for almost anything: To clean your face, your body, or even your home – it's a great ally to wash food, do the dishes, get a sparkling laundry, mop your floors, or clean your pets– with no synthetic preservatives, detergents or foaming agents. This means no Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate, a common chemical detergent to which I am extremely allergic. I personally use Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Liquid Soap to clean my kitchen and my bathroom; by mixing it with baking soda, it attacks the toughest grease stains. However, and because it is a very concentrated formula, you need to dilute it to get the best results. You can visit Dr. Bronner's blog here for suggestions on how to make the most of this wonderful product.
6. Hanging Air Plant Terrarium by Maker's Kit ($24, featured here with a black display stand from Amazon): This cute DIY green kit includes a hanging glass bubble, preserved moss and lichen, decorative rocks, a water atomizer, a Tillandsia plant, and an easy-to-follow set of instructions to take care of the lil' guy. You only need to provide a sunny spot for your new friend!
The benefits of honey are amazing, as demonstrated on Dr.Oz my favorite is Manuka Honey which promotes skin regeneration, repairs cellular damage and lessens appearance of wrinkles.
Hydrates: When applied to your skin, manuka will hold in moisture and absorb moisture from the air for a dewy, glowing complexion.
Anti-aging: Because of its moisturizing properties, manuka retains moisture without making skin oily, the first step in wrinkle-free skin.,helps slow down enzymes that destroy collagen.
My favorite is Wedderspoon brand, because I know its pure, not mixed with fillers like some other brands you can purchase at http://wedderspoon.com. On the Dr Oz show, I showed my favorite manuka honey mask, it is with cinnamon and apply it as a mask. Steam your skin, pay dry and apply a thin layer of manuka blended with a pinch of cinnamon. Leave on for 20 minutes and gently wipe off. Close pores after by rinsing with cold water. Use the same mixture as a spot treatment and leave on overnight to see blemishes disappear.
Cleanser: Add a few drops of hot water to a quarter-sized dollop of Wedderspoon Manuka and cleanse massage around your entire face for three minutes (make sure you're not wearing any makeup). Gently wipe off with a washcloth or sponge for extra exfoliation.
Dark spot treatment: To fade acne scars, brighten and resurface the skin, mix a quarter-sized dollop of Wedderspoon manuka, fresh-squeezed lemon and a teaspoon of olive oil. Massage mask into steamed skin and allow the mixture to work its magic for 20 minutes. Rinse and close pores with cool water.
Manuka honey is often graded as "12+ or "16+," which indicates its concentration of beneficial compounds and antioxidants, so the higher the number, the stronger the antibiotic effect. http://wedderspoon.com
What do facial features tell us about our REPUBLICAN presidential candidate? The FACE tells it all . http://www.newmediapatriotradio.com/conservative-blog/2016/2/5/episode-19-what-do-facial-features-tell-us-about-our-republican-presidential-candidate-the-face-tells-it-all What does each presidential candidate features say about them? I have been studying by face reading for over 20 years. Face reading is Chinese art of Face Reading over 2000 years old, is an ancient form of physiognomy and entails the use of the face and facial characteristics to evaluate key aspects of a person just how much you can learn about a person just from just their eyes, ears, mouth, nose and eyebrow, and I love reading hands too. One can tell a lot. We hear wise tails and nicknames for certain features that in many cases turn out to be true. For example stubby fingers “grabby person”, at least this is what my grandmother would say and I have found it to be true. The FBI have many files on certain characteristics, Journal of Social, Evolutionary, and Cultural Psychology, Jeffrey M. Valla, Stephen J. Ceci, and Wendy M. Williams of Cornell University show that people can tell criminals and noncriminal apart simply by looking at their still photos . This is groundbreaking proof in todays world, but the practice of face reading has existed for thousands of years not just in China. I like taking a look at the faces of our presidential candidates. I can tell you a more about he candidate’s them by their features, then what they say and who will be the best president. Favorable and unfavorable facial features. The placement, flashiness, position, I have been practicing in a non-judgmental way for years. Eye movement, looking up to right is lying, unsure, the way the eyes move. Everything on the face means something, for example big ears like president Obama has, means listener, always listening, never taking action. Now small ears tiny ears, means selective hearing and selfish. Based on my years of face reading this is my read on our REPUBLICAN presidential candidate – See more at: http://www.cheriecorso.com/?p=2076#sthash.1Qc6cOAL.dpuf
