The Dolphin's Secret: A Meditational Journey for Children Book Review


National Dolphin Day is April 14, 2019

  Meri, a beautiful mermaid, and her friend, Aloha, a dolphin, playfully introduce children to meditation. The story weaves in mindfulness techniques of Yoga Nidra, an ancient form of meditation, which will help children have a direct experience of peace and relaxation. Yoga Nidra is done laying down, so this is perfect for bedtime or naptime! Written for children ages 4-8 who enjoy story time. Parents and teachers who read the story and do the techniques will also experience relaxation while reading the story.
  You can buy this book, "The Dolphin's Secret", on Amazon.com
  “Take a slow, deep breath in through your nose, and pretend you are blowing bubbles under the water, just like a dolphin. Keep taking slow, deep breaths in through your nose, and blow out through your mouth very, very slowly. With each breath in, fill yourself with joy. Each time you breathe out, relax just a little more. Imagine bubbles of all sizes floating around you.”
Through listening to The Dolphin’s Secret story, following the instructions for each mindfulness activity, and being encouraged to notice how they feel, children will learn to become more aware of what peace and ease feel like—in an entertaining way. Colorful illustrations transport kids on an underwater adventure with Meri, as she teaches children to pretend to blow bubbles like dolphins, using slow, deep breaths in from their nose and out through their mouths. Once the children are in a relaxed state, Meri incorporates mantras like, “I have all that I need inside me to be peaceful and happy.” If encouraged by their parents or teacher, our little ones can begin using these on their own. Readers will also benefit and feel the positive effects on their own minds and bodies.

Arm and Hammer Fruit and Vegetable Wash Review

w
\


  My family loves fruits and vegetables! Apples, blueberries, grapes, tomatoes, cucumbers and more. I have always worried about the pesticides these food products are sprayed with before they enter the stores. Now, thankfully, Arm and Hammer has came out with a wash that removes all the wax and pesticides used on fruits and vegetables  and it works great.
 Just think about the dirt  that could be on tomatoes, squash, strawberries and other produce.  It doesn't come off by just washing them off with water. This is why I love the Arm and Hammer Fruit and Vegetable Wash---it removes all dirt, wax, pesticides and handling from strangers to your shopping cart. Plus, this product is super safe to use.
  All you need to do to remove the nasty stuff from your fruit or veggies is to #1. Spray the food.  #2 Gently rub it into your food and then #3 Wash your food product and the eat!

Flexclip Review


  Flexclip believes that the video is the best way to convey a message, propagate an idea or just to formulate one’s inner feelings. Their team is passionate about producing videos to share their thoughts and showcase the unforgettable moments. Usually, a professional marketing video helps to advertise businesses, make presentations, showcase products, and a personal video slideshow lets you share memorable moments with friends and families easily. However, creating a high-quality video is not easy, and it often requires a great deal of time, talent and money.

Atem Car Air Purifier Review

Image

   I was so happy when IQ Air asked me to try out this amazing air purifier.
  The amazing air purifier is  launched and designed to deliver purified air to families. This machine has been air tested to filter air down to the 0.0003 micron level- that is smaller than most viruses .
  When I received this machine I was so happy to get it attached to my backseat headrest and begin cleaning the air in my car.  I don't smoke, but my husband does and he smokes out the car window.  What he doesn't understand is the smoke lingers in the car causing the kids to cough and wheeze.

Cowboy Wisdom Book Review/Giveaway


 The Era of great Cowboy wisdom may seem gone, but some of its words live forever in this collection of  200+ quotes, jokes, wise words and humor of the book, "Cowboy Wisdom" by Gerd De Ley.
  Some of these words written in the book come from John Wayne, Gene Autry and Will Rodgers.  One of my favorite sayings is : "Never play cards with a man called Doc" by Nelson Algren.  Well, we all know that's true.   Will Rodgers gave the advice to "Never Kick a cow chip on a hot day." This makes great sense.
