Dealing With The Aftermath Of A Car Accident


A car accident has the power to wreak devastation in a family that lingers long after the physical wounds have healed.  Every year, as many as 4.6 million Americans are injured in car accidents according to the National Safety Council (NSC), resulting in emotional and financial distress that can result in severe anguish for the entire family. 
The trauma associated with a car accident occurs so unexpectedly that there is no way anyone can prepare for it, either financially or emotionally. 


When the unimaginable happens, it is vital that a family groups together, acknowledging what happened and supporting each other in whichever way they can.

Emotional consequences of a car accident
Everyone reacts differently to trauma and within your family, you may notice varying degrees of shock, denial, anger, irritability, and anxiety.  Children are often overlooked when emotional support is handed out despite the fact that they are often the most vulnerable when a distressing situation arises.

Where young children may become sullen and withdrawn, teenagers may react with anger, choosing to turn to their friends instead of their family. As important as what it is to be supportive of one another, you also need to know when someone might need some space.

Allow your children the opportunity to deal with what happened in their own way while reassuring them that you are always there for them if they need anyone to talk to.

What about the financial effects?
The financial effects of a car accident can be ruinous, especially if the family breadwinner is unable to return to work. Such a loss of wages combined with mounting medical bills can undoubtedly lead to lasting financial difficulties that can impact the entire family. 

Family savings, college funds and the life your family has become accustomed to can come under threat when you are no longer able to pay your bills. While your insurance may help ease your burdens, chances are that you will not be paid the compensation you and your family are entitled to which is why you may want to consider seeking out professional legal assistance.

According to a Gilbert personal injury attorney, every accident victim deserves to be represented by a legal team that will both protect your interests and fights for you and your family.

Resuming life after an accident
There are a number of methods you as a family can employ to help you deal with the aftermath of the accident as a unit.  Simple relaxation techniques such as mindful breathing can help with panic attacks while doing things together such as watching a movie or indulging in a special meal.

Talk about the experience with each other, friends, family members and, if needed, qualified counselors.  It is also recommended to alert your children’s teachers about what happened so that they can offer extra support and be understanding of any emotional consequences of the incident. 

As hard as it may be to come to terms with what happened it is important to not try and pretend that it never happened as denial can amplify any emotional distress significantly.

The last thing anyone wants to envision is a loved-one being involved in a car accident. As grave as the consequences may be it is important to support one another as a family, offering encouragement and refraining from assigning blame to anyone.

Just spend time together, love each other and be grateful for everything you have left despite your setbacks.

The History of Halloween and Costume Wearing


Halloween celebration which takes place annually on 31st October has become popular all over the world and amongst people of all believes and religions. People wearing costumes and masks usually mark this day and walk around with pumpkin made lanterns. This is a day that you should consider having fun with friends by wearing the unique Halloween costume and light up the party. The costumes are available in different designs to suit your taste. Although the Halloween started from the Celts people who used to live in the now Ireland country, it has become a holiday that is just unstoppable.

Photo not mine
Here is a short history of the Halloween celebration and costume wearing.

The Origin of Halloween
Halloween originated from the Celts who used to hold the Celtic festival of Samhain to celebrate their new year.  This was a day that marked the end of summer and the beginning of the dark and cold winter which was associated with the dead. They believed that once a year, the spirits of the dead would return to the world the living. The Celts also believed that on this day, their priests could be able to get predictions from the spirits of what to expect during the winter season. They used to commemorate the day by gathering together, and they could light up huge sacred bonfires to burn sacrifice for the spirits. They wore costumes which were made of animal heads and skins and they attempted telling each other’s fortunes, performed dances, and shared stories of the dead. After the celebration was over, they used to light the fires they had extinguished in the belief that it could protect them during the winter. They also left treats at the dinner table, doorsteps and along the way for the spirits to appease them. They lit up the roads with candles to help the spirits find their way back to the spiritual world after the visit.

Spread of Halloween
During the 400 years that the Romans ruled the Celtic Lands, The two Roman’s festivals of Feralia and the one of honoring the Roman goddess of and trees referred to as Pomona were combined with the traditional Celtic celebration of Samhain. Also in an attempt to replace the Celtic celebration of the dead, the Catholic Church moved the day of honoring the saints both known and unknown to 1st November which was later moved to 2nd November. This strengthened the Celtics celebrations of the dead even more because both Christianity and the Celtic traditions had slowly blend over time. The Irish immigrants fleeing the Irish Potato Famine also contributed in a great way to the spread of Halloween celebration in America.

Wearing of costumes
Costume wearing and having pumpkin lights are a central sign of Halloween celebration. In the traditions, people wore masks so that the spirits would confuse them as fellow spirits. Some people also started taking advantage of the costumes to steal and do wrong things while wearing them because they could not be identified. Today, Halloween celebrations costumes have been made in different designs, and the idea of celebrating Halloween has changed because it is now related to having fun and not entirely about the spirits and superstitious beliefs.

Teaching Kids the Responsibility with QUBO


A few months ago Mommy received a package from Friso. Aside from the product, another box was included in the package - a QUBO kit.
Qubo, qubo.ph, genovese basil

The kit contains a paper pouch of fertilized soil, a small pouch of stone grits, a mini glass bottle of organic fertilizer, a tiny glass bottle containing the Genovese Basil seeds, and a small pot made of coconut husk.

With this, it is not only teaching him to do the proper way of planting but also let him know the word RESPONSIBILITY.

Let Matthew teach you how to plant using QUBO kit with this short video.




Qubo, qubo.ph, genovese basil

An Overview Of Heal And Soothe


What is Heal and Soothe? 

health, Heal N Soothe, arthritis

Heal and Soothe is a supplement that is designed to help alleviate pain. It works by using systemic enzyme therapy. This form of therapy has been used for the past 50 years. The word systemic refers to the whole body. The word enzyme refers to something that speeds up something else. It is also known as a biocatalyst. 

Certain Enzymes can help protect the body from inflammation. It is important to note that this supplement is not an anti-inflammatory drug. The enzymes work by neutralizing the effects of enzymes. This helps people recover faster from sprains, strains, surgery, bruises and broken bones. Additionally, the enzymes help improve heart health and prevent cancer. 

Ingredients in Heal N Soothe 

In addition to proteolytic systemic enzymes, Heal N Soothe has several other ingredients that help alleviate pain. This supplement has the following ingredients. 

Bromelain 

Bromelain is a compound that is found in pineapples. It also has proleolytic systemic enzymes. This compound has been studied for over 60 years. It has been shown to reduce inflammation and prevent toxins from building up in the body. It can also prevent swelling in the joints. 

Turmeric Extract 

Turmeric extract comes from the dried root of a plant. It has been used for hundreds of years to treat a variety of ailments. Turmeric extract works by blocking the COX-2 and 5-Lox Enzymes. This helps reduce inflammation and pain. It also reduces free radicals. Free radicals can also trigger pain. 

Papain 

Papain has enzymes that break down proteins. There have been a number of studies done to confirm that it benefits health. It can boost the immune system. 

Boswellia Extract 

Boswellia Extract has been used in Indian medicine for thousands of years. Many studies have shown that Boswellia extract can improve blood circulation. It can also reduce inflammation. 

Rutin 

Rutin is found in many fruits and plants. This is a flavonoid that is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It also has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants can reduce the damage that free radicals have on the body. 

Mujave Yucca Root 

Mojave Yucca Root has resveratrol and yoccaols, which are antioxidants. Both of these antioxidants can reduce inflammation. It has been shown to improve digestive health as well as boost the immune system. 

Ginger Extract 

Ginger extract has been around for over 2,500 years. It helps treat nausea and vomiting. It can also decrease the number of prostaglandins in the body. This helps reduce pain. Prostaglandins are substances that trigger pain. 

Devil's Claw 

This is another natural pain reliever. It originated in Africa and has been used for thousands of years. Studies have shown that it only alleviates pain, but it also helps reduce inflammation throughout the body. 

Citrus Bioflavonoids 

Citrus bioflavonoids are filled with antioxidants. They reduce the activity of elastase and collegenase, which are enzymes that cause collagen to break down. When collagen breaks down, it can trigger joint pain. Not only does it prevent joint pain, but it can also prevent free radical damage.

Is Talkspace Changing The World Of Therapy?



Talkspace, text therapy app, mobile app, mobile, online therapy platform

Talkspace is very bold and innovative idea that promises to help people via texting method, functioning as an online therapy platform. But how successful is this project? More importantly, how effective is it? And why is the app partnered with Michael Phelps? Let's find out!

A Text Therapy App?

Talkspace app is an online therapy text-based platform founded on the idea of making therapy available for everyone, everywhere and at any time. The idea behind it is fundamentally simple: you create an app, get a lot of smart and certified/licensed therapist and connect them with people who are in need of their services.

Keep in mind that the goal of the Talkspace app is not to replace traditional, in-office treatment. No; the purpose of this app is to provide help to those who can't afford conventional methods of treatments, as well as to provide relief to those who prefer treatment in their home environment rather than in offices or dispensaries.

What's With The Michael Phelps?

What is the relationship between Michal Phelps, a professional swimmer, and an online therapy app? In 2014 Michal Phelps had everything. At that time, he was one of the worlds most successful athletes and arguably the most successful swimmer in the history of humankind. Up until then, he had won 18 gold medals; he was the embodiment of American Dream.

On the surface, Michael was the guy that had everything. In reality, Michael had locked himself in a room, depressed and anxious. He didn't sleep nor eat, and the only thing he contemplated was the idea of killing himself. After realizing that he won't be able to deal with the burden of depression on his own, he sought help; the decision to seek help ultimately saved his life.

Due to his experience with depression and anxiety, Phelps partnered with Talkspace in the hope that his shared story will encourage other people to react promptly and not to let themselves get into the position he was in. Michael also did a commercial, which you can watch here!

Recent Developments
Talkspace is an active voice and a fighter for human rights. They joined #Metoo campaign which was a collective response to all the sexual harassment scandals that have been coming out over the past couple of years.

One New Version article pointed out that the app took the fight beyond the #Metoo campaign. They put the focus on victims, advocating that it is essential to talk about these issues but that it is even more important to help victims cope with their emotions and heal from their traumatic experience.

Licensed professionals that are partnered with Talkspace app point out the severity and seriousness of such traumatic experiences, emphasizing the importance of overcoming of guilt and shame, the two most frequent emotions victims feel after having experienced such horrible things (according to one GcReport article.)

Most recently, the company announced its partnership with the New Directions Behavioral Health with the purpose of giving more people a chance to receive the help they need. Thanks to this new partnership, New Directions clients will now be able to reach a therapist via the Employee Assistance Program.

How Rocketship Education Has Changed Public Schooling



Rocketship Education has made a promising name for itself in recent years, working diligently to grow and expand their system of public charter schools for kindergarten through fifth grade. Their mission is, realistically, relatively simple - they want to provide the same high quality, top-tier education to all students, regardless of their family's ability to afford private schools - which, in California, can be exceptionally pricey. Their statistics boast that approximately 85% of their students are low income, however, they are ranked in the top 10 percent of all public schools, as far as performance goes.
Rocketship Education, education, school, non-profit network of public elementary charter schools

The ability to receive a top-quality education is, admittedly, something that many families never truly expected their children to have. Many low-income California residents have said in the past that they didn't expect their children to be able to attend schools where education was truly valued, as private education is often exceptionally expensive, difficult to get into, and religiously affiliated. This combination of attributes has made it difficult for low-income families to have the ability to see to it that their children are properly educated.

However, it's no longer limited to just California. As the Rocketship Education method has taken off, new schools are opening across the nation, with locations in Milwaukee, Nashville, and Washington D.C. New schools are opening each year, providing further opportunities for students to grow their knowledge in new, unique, and creative ways.

More than this, Rocketship Education is empowering students - their curriculum is tailored to each and every individual student, truly taking to heart the meaning of "no child left behind" - students are allowed to learn and grow at their own pace, with chances to ask questions and explore topics they find interesting, while also staying consistent with state-mandated expectations for student excellence. Students who find themselves struggling, furthermore, are given the necessary resources to ensure they are staying on track and learning at their expected, or even accelerated, pace that fits their own approach.

Another great aspect of this public charter school is their approach to working with teachers. They follow a talent pipeline method, allowing teachers who display leadership attributes, and who desire to move up within the organization and grow as educators with the charter school to follow an expected career path. They provide training for teachers, for instance, who are interested in becoming principles at a Rocketship school - they call it their principal in training program, and it allows these individuals to learn and grow and acclimate to what may become their new position, which has proven to be effective as it gives each new prospect the ability to test the water and learn from their peers before assuming the role.

And, of course, there is the aspect of parents - Rocketship schools pride themselves, as well, in being able to give parents a voice in their student's education. This aspect is one of many that drive home the choice of schooling for many parents, as they feel as though they have the ability to actively partake in their children's education - something that many public schools alienate parents from.

Each of these aspects has brought on a new, unusual, and fasicnating change to the education system. Rocket schools are slowly rearranging the way public schooling, as well as the public charter school, is seen - it's provided individuals who may have been in low performing schools the ability to learn and grow as they need, turning apathetic young students into bright young scholars. Their time, dedication, and excitement to see students succeed has been a driving factor behind the Rocketship schools, allowing them to change the face of education on a whole.

How Can You Feel Better About Your Cellular Health?


In partnership with Elysium Health

When it comes to personal health, most of us strive to be healthier. One of the best ways that you can improve your overall well-being is by working to improve your cellular health. Your cells are the very foundation of your personal health. Therefore, you need to make sure that you are keeping yourself well when it comes to the building blocks of your body. We want to exercise more and eat better to do that. Additionally, certain supplements can serve as further support for your well-being.

Elysium Health is a consumer health company that has the mission of helping people live healthier, longer. Dr. Leonard Guarente, the co-founder of the company, works as the chief scientist of Elysium Health as well as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. He has conducted significant research on the genetic and molecular causes of aging.

health, cellular health and optimization, Elysium Health, personal care, Basis,

Elysium Health works with world-class scientists and clinicians (the company’s research partners include Harvard, Oxford, and Cambridge) to hasten scientific discoveries. The goal of the company is to translate advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work.

The first product created by Elysium Health is Basis, a daily supplement meant to support cellular health. Basis is based on 25 years of aging research. When Basis is taken daily, it is proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+. NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential to many of our cellular functions, such as circadian rhythms, energy creation, DNA protection, and hundreds of others. NAD+ declines in levels as we age, and those processes stop functioning.

Basis allows you to take if you follow a strict diet or have any dietary allergies, because the supplement is vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, and free of any artificial flavors and colors.

To ensure that Basis works as intended, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial. The trial demonstrated that taking the recommended dose of Basis daily increased levels of NAD+ in humans by an average of 40 percent. The results were published in the online science journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease.

To include Basis in your own daily routine, purchase it on Elysium Health's website. The company sells Basis in a variety of monthly subscriptions, as well as in individual jars. Each jar contains 60 capsules (the recommended daily intake is two capsules). A regular month-to-month subscription costs $50 each month. The most popular plan is the six-month prepaid subscription to Basis for $270, which breaks down to $45 per month. Elysium also offers a one-year subscription for $480, or $40 per month. An individual jar costs $60.

To offer a new way to buy Basis, Elysium Health has partnered with the tech retailer b8ta to sell the supplement in stores. Pick up a jar of Basis while discovering other unique products at one of b8ta's locations now until the end of June.

For more information about Elysium Health, the company's team of scientists, and the science behind Basis, visit Elysium's website.

Finance Habits to Help Fund a Family


Running a family is expensive, with a single child costing $235,000 between birth and adulthood. When you become a parent, you will learn a whole host of new skills, but perhaps one of the greatest learning curves will be in accounting. Take control of your finances by forming healthy habits to help save for your children’s futures.

Finance, Savings, finance habits

Be Open and Transparent
Nearly half of Americans say that they don’t like talking about their personal finances. This taboo around money has been considered a leading cause of divorce and family breakups. However, if you want to really get on top of your personal finances, then you have to get past this roadblock. At minimum, this means being honest with yourself, which many people struggle with. Ideally, be open with the whole family about how funds are being spent. Then you can start making improvements.

Keep a Monthly Budget and Set Goals
Maintaining a budget is more than just tracking how much you spend. You can use it to see where costs can be cut and challenge yourself to improve over time. Once you have a family, you need to take note of money spent for every member. Yes, you’ll be spending a lot more, but that also means there’s a lot of areas where you can make savings.

Consolidate Debts and Savings
As you go through life, you’ll accrue many different streams of in-goings and out-goings. Save yourself time and money by consolidating these where possible. If you have many different debts, pay them off with a new loan and focus your energy making that one monthly repayment. If you have 401Ks from several previous employers, combine them all into one big savings account, which will gather interest more quickly.

Change How You View Gifts
Everyone wants to treat their children, but gifts can be the one area that you find yourself consistently overspending. The most valuable thing in a family is time spent together, so focus more energy coming up with fun games and days out, rather than always purchasing the latest toy.
