Sleeping, the Most Important Part of Your Day
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about 70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep problems, and they stress the importance of healthy and sufficient sleep for our overall health. Public health announcements have cropped up on highway signs warning people of the dangers of drowsy driving. Sleep problems not only lead to increased risk of injury and lost work productivity, but they appear to contribute to chronic conditions like obesity and depression as well. So, how did we get so sleep deprived? It’s an interesting question to ask, especially considering the fact that we are located less than 30 miles from NYC, a city that,...

My Must-Have Kids Items for the Beach
The little town we live in outside of NYC has a beautiful little beach, and you can find us there almost every weekend in the summer. Since it’s on the Long Island Sound, the waves are itty bitty, but they are the perfect size for my two-year-old, who loves to try and outrun them. In addition to sunscreen of course, these are my favorite must-have kids items for the beach.  Sun Hat with SPF Since Bailey’s hair is still baby-thin, I keep her head covered to protect her scalp and to keep the sun off her face and neck. I love the i.Play Sun Protection Hat with UV-protection. Bonus features: it’s breathable, ties under the neck so...
