September Health and Wellness

 

Screen Shot 2017-09-03 at 9.44.14 PM

Like they say, “If you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything.” It’s becoming more and more evident that a healthy lifestyle, and being a proactive participant in you and your families health needs is important to our quality of life.
For this years Health and Wellness issue of Kid’s Directory NWA, we are spotlighting Bee Well Yoga. Allisson Butler-Kublanov and her team of professionals bring healthy living habits to families in our area. I asked Allisson for some advice for how families in our area could benefit from Yoga:
Why is it important for new moms to take time for Yoga?
Allisson: “Yoga is a great way for new moms to learn to take time for themselves. The focus on breath helps new moms to relax and rest. Who doesn’t need a little more rest when they have a newborn?”
What can a mom of a newborn do to relieve body stress, and rebound from pregnancy body?
Allisson: “First remember to rest, and remember that your body didn’t change in 2 weeks or 2 months. Eat as healthy as you can, move your body, and rest (see how I put that in twice?). Take some time for yourself everyday – whether that’s yoga, a walk, sitting with a cup of coffee or simply spending some time outside. Remember, doctor appointments and going to the grocery store don’t count as time for yourself.”
What is a good age to start kids with stretching and yoga and what are the benefits?
Allisson: “Kids as early as 2 or 3 can benefit from the practice of yoga. Moving your body, learning how to express emotions, feeling how you breath when you are angry or happy, learning to sit still – those are all things that kids and adults can learn from a yoga practice.”
What do you recommend for dad?
Allisson: “Yoga with mom. Lots of couples come to our candlelight classes. Why not make it a date night? Dads can come to yoga too – the benefits of relaxation, stress reduction, flexibility and strength are not limited to women. We even have couples memberships so you can both come to yoga – together or on your own.”
Thanks for the tips, Allisson! Besides yoga, there are other considerations, that when combined, make for a wonderful start to a healthy lifestyle.
Eating and preparing good food, an active lifestyle combined with family time, and staying connected to your family with daily conversation and spending quality time together. Couple these concepts with a network of doctors and dentists, that you trust, is a great way to feel confident in the direction of your families wellbeing. Please check out our list of health providers, and rest assured, that you will be getting the best care available in NWA. Happy September to each of you.

Kid's Directory August 2017 "Back to School"

Screen Shot 2017-07-26 at 9.38.48 PM

How can it be August? Didn’t summer just start? There’s no time like the present to enjoy the last days of summer fun before the school routine kicks in again.Be sure to check out our August event calendar to find out what’s going on all over the NWA region.
It’s a busy month and there are still camp opportunities and fun outdoor activities to take advantage of.Though it is bittersweet to see the kids go back to their daily business of education, in some ways it is grounding to pick up the daily routine and see the kids getting back into the swing of things. It’s also a great time of to get the kids signed up for lessons and training to fill the gaps, and see them progress towards goals. Seeing our children grow, learn and mature through the years is such a great blessing of parenthood. These years pass by so quickly.
There are also some phenomenal events going on in the sky above us in August! In mid-August, peaking on Aug. 12, is the Persieds meteor shower that occurs every year. Catching glimpses of small and big shooting stars has become a tradition in my family…and the kids enjoy a reason to stay up late.Then, on August 21, we get an opportunity to see a total solar eclipse! A total eclipse that can be seen throughout the United States is quite an event! I’m looking forward to all of our kids having memories of this solar spectacle.
Don’t forget to take those Back-to-School photos on their first day! Let’s all hope for a good school year filled with new memories, new friends and new learning that will follow them through the years of their lives.Take care and we’ll see you next month. Sincerely, Sherry Lotufo, Publisher/Editor Kid’s Directory NWA

Sunny Skaggs Photography

Hello, I’m Sunny Skaggs, mom of three boys, wife to my super hero, a photographer with an eye for design, a perfectionist’s drive, and a love of people. I know that life is amazing and fleeting. Life is about experiences and relationships. I strive for more than a click of the shutter on a nice camera and file downloads because I know we will never walk past our hard drives and get swept away by nostalgia. Kids don’t shuffle past thumb drives in the junk drawer and feel compelled to crawl into our laps so we can tell them how life was forever changed when they entered the world. I want my clients to walk away with something to connect over, a daily reminder of how they are unique and why that is something to preserve and treasure.  Let’s creating something worth passing on, lets tell the story of you. Your life, your art. Lets start a collaboration!

CareTouch Photography

My name is Victoria Caresia and I’ am the photographer of CareTouch Photography located in NWA. My husband and I moved here almost 3 years ago with our 2 little girls who of course are my main inspiration of photography. I love shooting in natural light with families and children, as well as doing indoor newborn sessions. I love exploring the beautiful area for new locations, and using the classic and timeless spots as well. I always look forward to meeting new families and clients to form bonds that will continue to grow through the years. Each family is different in front of the camera when it’s time for their session. I strive to find the best way to bring out those genuine smiles, and make everyone feel comfortable. I have been told my patience and mellow personality puts everyone at ease. I love that photography lets me work with so many wonderful families, and still be able to come home and enjoy time with mine.There is truly no greater blessing than to do what you love and being the best you can be for your family.

Monday Mom~ Hannah Carter's Health and Wellness Journey

September’s Kid’s Directory is focused on helping families get healthy and maintain good health. Today we have a special Monday Mom’s Edition to share! We interviewed local mom, Hannah Carter, to learn how she has incorporated health and wellness into her lifestyle as a stay-at-home AND work-from-home mom of two busy little boys! We are so inspired by her journey!

12000029_10208119832173003_614456099_n-2

  • When did you first start your fitness journey?
    • I started my journey in January 2014. Baby steps in the beginning.
  • Why did you start your journey?
    • I was tired all of the time and wanted more energy to be able to keep up with our two little boys. Plus, I didn’t feel good in my own skin.
  • What is your favorite exercise?
    • I LOVE to run! I never would’ve imagined in a million years that would be me, but I love it best when I get to run with my hubs or a few friends. I also love strength training and have a favorite class at my gym that keeps me motivated to come back for more!
  • What did you do to stay motivated when you wanted to quit?
    • Well, it can be so discouraging in the beginning when weight doesn’t fall off super quickly. I remember thinking “this is just NOT working” and then I’d suddenly be down another pants size! So, fitting into new clothes and shopping in fun boutiques I’d not been able to shop in before was huge for me! Plus, getting the energy to actually outrun my two boys is super fun too! I guess the best piece of advice I’ve got is just to stay the course. Changes are being made. The longer it takes weight to come off–the less likely it is to come back because hopefully that means real changes are being made in your lifestyle.
  • What is the biggest piece of advice you can share to other parents looking to start their own health and wellness journey?
    • Find someone to support and help you through your journey. For me, I enlisted professional help to keep me accountable and guide me through what I needed to do. I still workout with my trainer (the fabulous Lynn Hancock) once a week because she keeps me sane and gives me perspective and attainable goals. I remember that’s one thing Lynn always talks about. Your goals need to be smart. They need to be real, attainable, and probably most importantly, measurable! Small changes add up to big changes over time!
  • How did you balance working out while raising two kids?
    • I’m so thankful for a gym with amazing childcare provided by my husband’s employer for a minimal cost. Plus, my husband and I work our schedules around time with kiddos.
  • I hear you got your husband to join you in the journey; how has that helped or changed your relationship?
    • It has definitely impacted our relationship for the better! We are both on the same page as far as getting healthier and generally keep each other on track. I won’t lie and say that I’ve never been jealous of how easy this seems for him and it took him no time at all to lose weight! Ha!! Probably just a guy thing though.
  • What’s your favorite new food or snack?
    • Well…this is tricky! Before, I was a “junkfoodaterian.” I mostly ate junk and was super picky. Part of my journey has been changing EVERYTHING about how I eat! I do really enjoy just simple grilled chicken with salads. It’s easy and tasty!
  • What were your original goals, what have you accomplished, and what are your new goals?
      • My original goals were pretty small. I think it was to lose 30 pounds and I wanted more energy. I’ve lost 60 pounds and have SO much more energy. It’s not easy–always a struggle! My ongoing goals are to maintain my current weight (at a minimum)–since this is more about lifestyle changes, I’ll never be “finished.” There’s always room for improvement! And, I would like to be able to do pull ups! That’s one thing I cannot do!

June 2015 Cover Kid Contest Winner

Seven years ago last month, we moved to our current house. One funny thing that sticks in my mind from our first summer here was how often I heard the buzzing sound of lawn mowers. Nearly every day–morning, noon & night. Now it doesn’t feel like summer until I hear that familiar sound & smell freshly cut grass. Every year, I seem to appreciate more all that summer brings like having my kids home, taking a break from routines, enjoying longer days. Makes life feel simpler.

We think summer is an important time for kids too. That’s why we continue to spotlight camps, programs & activities offered in this issue. It may feel overwhelming to choose but you can try one or two each year. It doesn’t all have to be done in one summer. Look for more information about these advertisers on pages 8-25.

Our June Cover Kid Contest Winner is Rodrigo Carmona! He’s the 21 month old son of Joaquín Carmona & María Peña of Fayetteville. He may be too little to play baseball now but he has a pretty mean throwing arm so pitching may be in his future! Thank you, María, for entering him in our contest. You have a beautiful family!

I close this letter with a heart-warming story of two little girls, a simple lemonade stand, an adoption story & the non-profit organization that brought them all together. Harper Hoyle (4 yrs), the daughter of our very own Cat Hoyle & her friend, Ember Crawford (3 yrs), granddaughter of Patricia Yatsko (a 20 yr volunteer at Loving Choices), decided they wanted to support Loving Choices during their Baby Bottle Campaign that runs from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day. But could two preschool children really make a difference by selling lemonade?

Then there’s Holly Hook. She serves on the board for Loving Choices & along with her husband, Todd, has experienced the joy of adoption. Jacoby became their son when the birth mom who came to Loving Choices couldn’t care for him. Holly says, “I know first hand that there are babies that can be saved and if the birth mom is not able to take care of the baby, then adoption can become an option. My husband & I have been blessed to have adopted our sweet Jacoby. Volunteering of my time to Loving Choices is a small way to give back to the organization that truly gives life.”

So how do these stories collide? At the simple lemonade stand. When Holly heard about it, she wanted to show her support & share her story with these little girls of why their efforts matter. What a perfect way for them to see they’re not too young to impact lives. In one afternoon, they got to meet real people changed by Loving Choices & raised $300 to help continue their work of serving women experiencing unplanned pregnancies! I couldn’t keep myself from sharing this story & hope it encourages you to consider ways you too can become involved.

Loving Choices serves hundreds of women each year with free & confidential services that includes help with pregnancy & other reproductive health issues including pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STD testing & abortion information. Learn more at www.lovingchoices.org.

Don’t worry dads. You are NEVER forgotten. We shared about hard-working mommas last month but there’s usually a strong man behind them supporting their dreams. We are thankful for all the dads out that see themselves as co-parents & are actively involved in their kids’ lives. We wish you the happiest of all Father’s Days!
