Road Warriors!

In today’s world, the road warrior’s life as a business traveler is easier and more productive than a few years ago, thanks in large part to modern hotels and evolving technology, keeping travelers both connected and comfortable. Technology has become such a major and essential part in the business travelers life that when asked to select clean underwear or their smart phone, 64 percent surveyed by Harris Interactive indicated they would rather leave the underwear home and picked the phone. Scary thought but clearly indicates the dependency of the road warrior on gadgets.

A smart phone is a must have travel tool, coming in handy for more than just checking your emails or surfing the net. Rental car companies may charge up to $20 a day for a GPS device, save the money and use the navigation on your phone instead. Another use of the smart phone is that many allow you to use it as a mobile hotspot allowing internet connections for laptops and tablets, a feature that comes in handy at the airport or on taxi ride to your meeting, many hotels offer free Wi-Fi but more and more are going the path of charging guests for service.

Health - Beat Hunger!

Do you know the secret behind feeling full? It is Satiety (sa-tie-e-ee). Satiety is a feeling of fullness you feel when you finish your meal. Don’t confuse it with the uncomfortable feeling that comes in after over-eating when the stomach is too full! You may feel unsatisfied and crave to eat more and more even when you have had enough. The brain is still sending the body the message of hunger but the calorie count says you have had enough for the day. This is distracting and makes you feel deprived of food, so you end up snacking, ignoring your weight loss or calorie management goal. If you are satisfi ed with your meal, however, you won’t feel hungry afterward. The reason for this feeling could be some missing key ingredients in your diet.

Here are some tips that can help you feel full and increase the satiety without over-stuffing yourself.  Read More

Parenting - Play Dates

Gone are the days of “free play” where children four and five-years old were allowed to ride their bicycles along suburban streets or play hide and seek in a patch of woods nearby home. Since the world is a different place than it was 20 years ago, many parents today restrict childhood social interaction to play date situations.

“People who had kids prior to 1989 or 1990 still raised their kids with more free play,” says Michell Muldoon, president of Fun PlayDates.com, based in Malvern, PA. “What happened is technology and cable television came about and started providing massive amounts of programming targeted toward creating virtual play, more women went back to work after having children, and the media also made us terrified to leave our children unsupervised.” Read More
