5 Things to Consider When Contemplating Dental Work

Check out this great info about dental work!


I have had my share of dental work done so this article covers a lot of important information to consider when needing dental work.

Maybe you need corrective work for a cavity or overbite. Maybe you're just thinking about bleaching your teeth for a better, whiter smile. Whatever your reasons for considering dental work, here are just five things to keep in mind as you do.


1. Insurance

What dental offices are within your network? More importantly, what procedures are covered by your policy? Some might fall under the "cosmetic" umbrella, so even if you genuinely need them, you might have to jump through some hoops to get them comped by your insurance company. Make sure that you do your research in advance to avoid any unpleasant surprises down the line.


2. Reviews and Recommendations

If you aren't sure where to get started with your search for a good dental practitioner, ask around. Your friends and family should have some names for you. You can also check out user-submitted reviews on sites like Google and Yelp; they'll tell you which offices are clean, punctual and staffed by friendly people.


3. Recovery Time

Don't be afraid to call the dental practice and ask detailed questions about procedures, side effects and recovery times. If you're a corporate manager who needs to be right back in the office after lunch, you can't afford to spend hours in the chair or under the influence of painkillers. If it will take you awhile to be yourself again after a dental procedure, you might need to schedule it for the weekend.


4. Legitimacy

When comparing and contrasting dental offices, look for signs of legitimacy as a brand. Anyone can hang a shingle and declare themselves open for business; if you're serious about finding a licensed, reputable specialist, you'll need to do a little digging. Where did they go to school? Are they members of any industry organizations or dental networks? What certificates are hanging on their walls?


5. Consultation

Last but certainly not least, always schedule a face-to-face visit with your dental practitioner before actually surrendering yourself to their hands. If you aren't completely comfortable with their personality and professionalism, it's okay to thank them for their time and find someone else. Never jump into dental work without having a consultation first.


Whether you're looking for a dentist, orthodontist or something else entirely, let these tips guide you down your chosen path. Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you, so it's important that it's a good one!

Foot Reflexology Made Easy


Amazing what a foot massage can do!


  Every night I give myself a foot massage before I fall asleep. This massage not only helps me to fall asleep, how I hate having insomnia, but it also has amazing other benefits for the body. My favorite foot massage benefit is relieving stomach problems. When you rub a certain point on your point on your foot it can help get the gas out of your body. When my boys were babies I would massage their feet when they were gassy and boy do it help them toot. Now that my boys are older, I still rub their feet when they complain of a stomach ache and they think it is so funny that my touching their feet makes them fart. Foot reflexology is nothing new, it has been around for a long time. Take a look at the picture above and find the places where it says intestines and stomach. Now with your hands rub and push on those spots. Do you feel your stomach moving? 



Sponsored Post: I received a Wollin Deep Shiatsu Foot Massager to facilitate this post.


 Now look at the rest of the feet on the picture and see all the other body parts that a foot massage can help. It is simply amazing how a foot massage can help the overall well-being of your body. The only problem with a foot massage is it can be time-consuming as to get the maximum benefits is can take thirty minutes. So how is one to get a great foot massage? Sure you could massage your feet while watching tv, the only problem is I would rather use my hands to work on the computer. All that rubbing makes my hands hurt too. That is why I rub my feet after I am in bed but I only rub them for Five minutes before I get bored.  


 I have discovered a wonderful way to massage my feet daily and no hands are needed. Meet my Deep Shiatsu Foot Massager. This wonderful deep foot massager allows me to work on the computer or watch TV and get a relaxing wonderful feeling foot massage. I just love how this feels so good product rubs all those pressure points on my feet, including the toes. Not only does this foot massager help with foot reflexology but it is also wonderful for tired achy feet. My husband is on his feet all day and when he comes home, he puts his feet into my massager and it helps his feet better while watching TV. I am glad the device has removable booties that I can throw into the wash as his feet can be stinky.

     This foot massager has lots of great features like a timer and different modes. My boys even love the deep foot massager and think the air pressure mode is the best. I like the kneading and heat modes. Most times I use this wonderful foot thingy in the morning while I write but it comes in handy after running too.

Healthy Snacks For Active Kids

My boys never slow down!


  My boys are out of school and home all day with me. My boys are bundles of energy and keep me going all day. My days are now spent playing at the park, going for bike rides, and swimming at the pool. My boys are also eating machines and seem to be hungry all the time. So I like to keep my kitchen stocked with healthy snacks that my boys can grab and go. Having grab and go snacks allow my boys to grab something to eat and my kitchen stays clean between meals. I am spoiled during the school year as they boys get free breakfast and lunch at school so my kitchen stays clean during the day.

    So take a look at some of my boy's favorite healthy snacks.


Sponsored post: I received samples of healthy products to facilitate this post.

After a long bike ride, my boys are hot and sweaty. So I like to have to stock my freezer with Hydrating Freezies that my boys can grab to cool down with. Since my boys did plenty of sweating, these frozen snacks help replenish their electrolytes with a delicious taste. Last year my boys had headaches when they did not consume enough water and I want to make sure that does not happen this year. I love that these Freezies contain real fruit juice and whole food electrolytes from coconut water and sea salt. They also have no added sugar, artificial colors or preservatives, or GMO’s. You can also rejoice that they are vegan and gluten free! My boys love the watermelon ice pops the best. My favorite flavor is the strawberry lemonade and the pineapple flavor is awesome too. 



  When we are not at the park or a bike ride, my boys are usually out front goofing around. Which is great for me so I can get some work done. That usually is short lived as one of them will say "I am hungry!" So I open the door and toss them a bag of Coconut Granola! This grain-free snack is addicting! I make sure to have several bags in the pantry as I love it more than the boys do. I love that this healthy snack is made without oil! It is simply a bag of delicious seeds, nuts, and coconut flakes that taste sweet but has very little sugar grams. Since the yummy snack is grain free, those who can't have gluten can enjoy it too. While my boys don't need the energy that this snack has, it sure does help me to keep up with them.


  Just look at those chunks of superfoods!  My favorite flavor is the Chocolate Coconola! I just love that that Grandy Oats uses Solar Panels to produce this awesome snack.


  Summer time means our bodies need more water. While my boys will drink water, it tends to get boring after a while so I like to treat my boys to flavored water. Their favorite flavored water for hot summer days is Aqua Ball. These cool shaped bottles make drinking water so fun and I don't have to worry about my boys becoming dehydrated. I love that the water is naturally flavored and my boys love all the delicious flavors like grapefruit punch, and strawberry lemonade. My boys also get some healthy vitamins from these preservative free waters. My boys love drinking the Aqua Balls after a hot day in the sun.


            Flavored water tastes so good after a water gun fight.


          My boys just love the cool characters on the bottles! 


 Other snacks that I like to keep in the house are fresh fruit like grapes and strawberries. My boys love freezing the grapes for a refreshing snack. Some other snacks that you can always find in my fridge are yogurt, cheese sticks, and peanut butter sandwiches. I find that having plenty of healthy snacks that are easy for my boys to grab keeps my kitchen clean and my boys filled with energy so they can run around and enjoy their summer.

What healthy snacks do your active kids enjoy?

MANDISA OUT OF THE DARK CD Giveaway

Check out this awesome giveaway! 


Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway.  Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation.  I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.


  I have been of fan of Mandisa for quite some time. I was first introduced to her music on the radio when I heard her song Good Morning. I just loved this upbeat song so had to purchase her Get Up CD which had a bunch of remixes that help me when I exercise. I really run faster when I have Mandisa on my iPod. So when I heard that Mandisa was releasing another album, I just had to check it out as it had another favorite Mandisa song on it Unfinished. I really loved listening to Mandisa's voice on this her new OUT OF THE DARK CD. While this CD did not get me running faster, this music was great to listen to while I was getting some work done on my computer. This CD showed me a new side of Mandisa that was mellow yet refreshing as it lifted my spirits up.

Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called 'Out Of The Dark' because that is exactly where God lifted her out of! 

Story Behind The Album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Df27myDpm1c

Get Your Kids On The Healthy Living Train


If you think it's time to get your family on board of the healthy living train - that's great. There are many ways you can encourage your family to keep fit and eat will, and most of it will be starting with yourself, and showing everyone just how simple it is.
So let's start today!


Healthy eating
If you're the one that does the cooking at home, then it'll be your job to make healthy meals that everyone will want to eat, and this is where you have to be clever.
It's no good just putting a whole bunch of veg on the plate for dinner. If you have young children, then this just isn't going to cut it. So this is where you're going to have to be creative. You will need to find ways of feeding your children fruit and veg while making it look appealing and taste good.
Try baking carrots for a sweet treat, of cut them as finely as possible and mix them in with their favorite food. If you make it look like something else, they may not even realize what they're eating. And once they admit they like it, you can tell them what it was. Consider making fruit smoothies too; these go down a treat.

Keeping fit
A lot of kids have no problem with staying fit because they are always on the go, running around and playing. But if your child isn't as active as they should be, you will want to try and change that.
On the weekend, get out of the house and take your kids to the park for a game of soccer, or go swimming. They won't be seeing it as exercise; they'll see it as going out and playing!
If you have no time to go out during the weekday, why not bring the fun to your home? Have a look at this guide for choosing the best bike exercise stand. Bikes are a great way to exercise on, as it works a lot of different muscles in your body, plus you can do it while watching tv! So lead by example and have a good session on it. When your kids start asking what that is and if they can have a go - you have succeeded.


It's not about dieting and working out- they're children, they don't need to do that. This is just a way you can encourage living a healthy lifestyle through positive influences.

The way you talk in front of your kids will have a big impact on the way they see things. So if you're very critical of your body, or someone else's, whether it's just a little comment or full on fat shaming, your child will be taking all this in, and start getting insecurities about their own body. So you should always talk in a positive way, even if you don't necessarily believe it - your child will.

So get to the grocery store and fill your shopping cart full of delicious fruit and veg. Well, what are you waiting for?

Instantly Add Lights To Your Yard With BlissLights

    I just love spending time with family in my yard and being able to enjoy the nice weather. I love lighting up my yard for entertaining. BlissLights makes adding lights to my yard so simple.


Sponsored Post: I received a sample of BlissLights to facilitate this post

  The boys and I were busy this past weekend cleaning up the yard. It amazing how one rainstorm can bring so many weeds. The wind also made a mess and tossed things all around the yard. So the boys and I worked for several hours cleaning the yard. We brought out the patio furniture from the shed and I then realized I needed some new furniture and decor. I just love decorating my yard for the summer time as it is an extension of our house. The warmer weather allows us to spend more time outdoors and I want my yard to be an inviting space not only for my family but for friends too. I just love having friends over for backyard barbecues. Long after dinner is over, we like to sit outside and catch up with our friends. So making my yard look nice at night is important to me.


  I knew that I needed to add some lights to my yard as all my solar lights needed replacing. I wanted something that was easy to set up. In the past, I tried using strings of solar lights as I did not want electrical cords around my yard for the kids to trip over. The solar lights never seemed to work that long. So when I discovered BlissLights, I knew I had to try them for my yard. BlissLights brings happiness in the form of light to everyone and is perfect to compliment any room- indoor or outdoor!These cool laser lights give my yard an incredible light show with no work. All I have to do is plug in the device and I have green twinkling lights dancing on my plants. The BlissLights look like fireflies dancing in the night. My boys have never experienced the joy of catching fireflies as we don't have any here in New Mexico. So when I plug in the BlissLights my boys get all excited about playing in the yard at nighttime.


  BlissLights also look so cool when used inside too. These lights give a twinkling starlight effect on the ceilings and walls. My boys love it when I set the lights up in their bedroom as it creates a magic show for them to watch as they drift off to sleep.


Some amazing facts about BlissLights.

Imagine an instant, moving “firefly effect”!


The Motion is an indoor/outdoor lighting fixture made out of ABS housing that is lightweight for easy portability. It produces tens of thousands of green pinpoints of light that can be controlled in intensity by an included remote control. Enjoy a fast moving “firefly effect” for more festive moments or a soft, tranquil movement for a touch of bliss on your home surfaces. It is energy efficient, weather resistant, and comes with a built-in timer that turns on for 6 hours and off for 18 for easy displays and applications year round.

Included:
MOTION with built-in timer
Remote control with 2 AAA batteries
Ground Stake
Floor Stand
Transformer

Check out some photos of the BlissLights in action in my yard. 




I still need to replace some furniture in my yard and buy some more decor. Soon my yard will be ready for our first barbecue of the season. BlissLights will make my next party so awesome.

Check out a video of the BlissLights from their website.




You need to visit BlissLights website and social media to see some amazing photos and videos of their lights in action. I just love this photo from their Facebook page of how they used the lights in a bathroom to create a romantic time in the bathtub!
