Dehydration Can Trigger Tantrums In Manhattan Beach

Dehydration Can Trigger Tantrums In Manhattan Beach

Most Manhattan Beach parents have experienced a tantrum or meltdown with their children. My kids usually lose it when they are hungry or need a nap. Some kids flip out if their routine is altered. My Los Angeles co-worker claims her kids get crazy when there is a full moon.

Lack of sleep and low blood sugar are the usual suspects causing irritability in my Los Angeles child, but a new study in the Journal of Nutrition points the finger at another culprit.1 Dehydration seems to lead to a low mood in healthy women. The study only included young women, but I did a little experiment on my own kids and noticed when they were mildly dehydrated they were fatigued and irritable.

Manhattan Beach kids need nutritious food and plenty of water to help maintain good physical and mental health.

Manhattan Beach Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Manhattan Beach Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Hello! Welcome to the Manhattan Beach children’s health blog. I am health advocate Patti Langell. At this site, I publish information on nutrition and health issues that affect Manhattan Beach children and families. My goal is to improve the state of children’s health in the Los Angeles area.

Despite decades of increased awareness in Los Angeles about the dangers of a distorted body image and extreme dieting, eating disorders are still a serious problem.

A recent American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) study revealed disturbing facts about eating disorders among children.1 According to the report, 0.5 percent of teenage girls in the country are estimated to have anorexia. The bulimia rate among adolescent girls is estimated at more than double that at 1 to 2 percent. Though anorexia and bulimia are usually thought of as a problem for adolescents, Manhattan Beach parents should be aware that even young Los Angeles children are at risk, as well as males, though the rates are lower.

California pediatricians can help Manhattan Beach parents with children affected by an eating disorder. The AAP recommends a combination approach for the treatment of eating disorders in children. Treatment plans usually include nutritional guidance and psychiatric counseling along with the appropriate medical care.

Los Angeles area Home Offices: Small Is Beautiful

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Los Angeles area Home Offices: Small Is Beautiful Years ago, I remember hearing about an entrepreneur who ran a multi-million dollar construction company from her studio apartment, using a small closet as an office. Of course this was only the administrative headquarters, the heavy equipment was kept elsewhere.

I was impressed by this thrifty home business owner who said she had no plans to rent space and increase her operating costs as her company grew: she loved her little closet office and made it work.

My fellow xobiotic home based business owners enjoy the benefits of operating their own business from their Los Angeles home: unlimited income potential, flexibility, and being their own boss. Some new team members recruited from the corporate world are initially skeptical about being able to run their business from a small home or apartment. Today’s article is about working in a small home office.

Think of yourself as an astronaut in a cockpit with all the controls at your fingertips. How is a cockpit organized? There are buttons and switches on every level, but all accessible.

  • Get a desk that fits your space. Corner desks can free up space not ordinarily used.
  • Office chairs with rollers let you easily access items within arm’s reach without having to stand up.
  • Shelves, shelves, shelves! Use all that prime vertical real estate on your walls.
  • Get a paper shredder and use it.

A paper shredder takes up some room but frees up space previously populated by papers you don’t need anymore. For example, invoices or sales orders that have been entered electronically. Some super-organized xobiotic team members regular schedule paper-shredding into their weekly agenda.

One drawback of home offices is the difficulty of holding meetings. It is hard to remain professional when inviting a client to your home office that doubles as a laundry room. You can solve this by holding large business meetings in rented Los Angeles conference rooms. Small meetings can be held over lunch or breakfast in business-friendly Los Angeles area restaurants. (Check for internet access before scheduling.)

Before you head out to your nearest Los Angeles area Office Max to buy a rolling chair, desk, or shelf unit, take measurements of your space. This may save you a trip to return an item that doesn’t fit.

I am health advocate Patti Langell. Working at home running my Xe energy drink online business lets me work and play everyday. If you are stuck in the 9-5 lifestyle, let’s talk. My Xe energy drink team is currently seeking serious Los Angeles area entrepreneurs. -Patti

Podcast Basics For Southern California MLM Business Bloggers

Podcast Basics For Southern California MLM Business Bloggers

Today’s Southern California direct selling article is for Southern California internet rookies who want to kick up their web marketing a notch by adding a podcast to their Southern California home business blog.

A podcast is a multimedia file that is downloaded for playback on a mobile device such as an iPod or laptop computer. It can be a digital recording of a radio program or, more often, a program produced solely for online distribution. A podcast can be a recording of a webcast: a live Southern California program that is ‘streamed’ or broadcast on the internet in real time. When this is the case, it is similar to a DVD recording of a live program that you store in the database of your playback device.

A related term is the acronym RSS which probably originally stood for Rich Site Summary feed but is sometimes used for Really Simple Syndication. You have probably seen the term RSS on websites. An RSS feed allows digital files to be downloaded in a standard format. Los Angeles podcast listeners often subscribe to favorite ongoing podcasts. When new podcasts are produced, they are automatically downloaded by RSS applications.

It is fairly simple hardware- and software-wise to product your own podcast for your Southern California online business
. Your laptop may already have recording capability. If not, you can buy any equipment you need in the Los Angeles area.

Southern California business owners operating on a shoestring will be happy to know that basic recording and editing software can be downloaded for free. If you want to get fancy, you can always buy more sophisticated software at California specialty computer stores. I recommend using a headset microphone so the mic is always in the right spot to get a clear and consistent recording.

Now the fun part: what will you podcast? The possibilities are endless for Southern California direct marketers. You can record California trade show presentations, interviews with founding distributors of your Southern California direct sales company, or create an entertaining pitch about your Los Angeles business opportunity. Let your expertise and enthusiasm shine.

Creating a podcast gives you a chance to connect with potential Southern California customers or downline members in a personal way.

I am health advocate Patti Langell, a network marketer representing Xe energy drink. I am based in Manhattan Beach, California.

Are you interested in owning a Xe energy drink online business? My team members are steadily expanding their networks and increasing their direct sales income.

Call me today to start building your own online Xe energy drink business!

Homemade Heat Pack For Los Angeles Kids

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

Homemade Heat Pack For Los Angeles Kids

Los Angeles parents are great at helping their children stay healthy and safe. Today on the Manhattan Beach Children’s Health Blog, we wanted to give parents another way to help their kids: homemade heat packs. These easy-to-make heat packs are great for growing pains, sore muscles, or just some extra coziness at bedtime.

To start, simply go to any fabric store in the Orange County, Los Angeles area, or Southern California area and choose some fabric (actually, you could even use an old t-shirt, fabric scraps, or a sock you have lying around). Cut two layers of the fabric one inch bigger than the desired size of the heat pack you would like for your child. A long rectangular shape is usually best.

Next, starting with one of the long sides, sew along the edges making sure to leave room for the seam allowance. Leave one short end open and fill the bag 2/3 full of rice. You can add a few drops of essential oil or herbs (these can be found at most Manhattan Beach natural food stores) to give the heat pack a pleasant odor for your child. Tie the bag off at the open end with some cotton string, or stitch it shut, and you’re done!

When your ready to use it, be safe by only heating it in the microwave for one minute. Check to see if it’s warm enough, then add time in short increments from there. If your kids prefer a cold pack in the summer, these bags can go in the freezer to chill for a spell.

If you want to get extra fancy, any Orange County, Los Angeles area, or Southern California fabric store would have interesting trimmings to add. But remember to avoid ribbons that have metal wire in them.

Healthy, happy Los Angeles kids and their parents can be comfortable all year long with these quick and easy heat packs!

Relaxation Techniques For Los Angeles Kids

Relaxation Techniques For Los Angeles Kids

One of the hardest things for any Manhattan Beach parent is to watch their kids struggle with life’s difficulties. It’s not always fun and games being a kid, and it is normal even for healthy children to struggle with stress and anxiety–whether from illness, pain, social situations, or academic pressures.

Here are some techniques that Los Angeles parents can teach their kids to help relieve anxiety and stress. Of course, if parents in the 90266 zip code area feel their child is abnormally stressed or anxious, they can talk about this with their child’s Orange County, Los Angeles area, or Southern California pediatrician.

One technique for stress relief is meditative breathing. Sit comfortably and then concentrate on breathing slowly and deeply, making sure the abdomen is moving, and not only the chest. Count slowly to 3 or 4 as you inhale, and then the same for the exhale. Try to focus all thoughts on breathing–the feel and the sound of it. When other thoughts enter your mind, try to let them float out again like a balloon. This technique helps to relax, and relieves stress and anxiety from the body and mind.

Another useful technique is mindfulness.

With the practice of mindfulness, Los Angeles parents and children will be able to elicit a relaxed and open response even in the most stressful situations. Mindfulness involves becoming completely aware of every aspect of any experience. Practice in non-stressful situations first–you can even do it while eating dinner. Notice every detail of your food–the feel, the color, the sound, the taste.

Such healthy mindfulness practice can translate this way in a stressful situation: say your child is at his Los Angeles school and is experiencing anxiety during a test. Practicing mindfulness, your child will notice the anxious feelings (cold and sweaty palms, shallow breathing, etc.), the feel of the paper in his hands, the students around him, etc. As your child notices and acknowledges these things, rather than fearing and avoiding them, they won’t be as frightening. Your child will learn that these things are part of life in Los Angeles and that they are okay.

Life is a challenge for Los Angeles parents and kids alike. Manhattan Beach parents can give valuable tools to their children to help them stay happy, safe, and healthy on this journey of life!

My name is Patti Langell and kids health in Southern California is a passion of mine. I am concerned with issues such as vaccinations and childhood obesity in Orange County.

Flu Shot Guidelines For Southern California Kids

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Flu Shot Guidelines For Southern California Kids

Every year as winter approaches, many Southern California parents wonder if they should get their kids a flu shot.

Everyone gets the flu, right? Is it that big of a deal?

In most cases, the flu is an inconvenience, but not detrimental beyond missing a few days of school. However, Southern California pediatricians caution that it is extremely important for high risk kids to get a flu shot. Ditto if your child is in regular contact with a high risk person.

What qualifies a child as high risk? Southern California experts say that chronic medical conditions such as diabetes or asthma puts a child at greater risk because the flu can contribute to serious complications. Many Southern California doctors also recommend flu shots for all children under five years old. Southern California experts advise getting your child’s flu vaccination as early as possible, in August or September or as soon as it is available, to protect them through the entire season which generally lasts from October to April.

Remember that two shots are required for children under the age of eight, given four weeks apart, for full protection your first year of getting vaccinated. Just one shot per year is needed after that.

Flumist is a nasal spray vaccine that can be given to healthy children ages two and up, an option that can be more child friendly. Side effects from either method of vaccination may include runny nose, muscle aches, vomiting, or low grade fever. The new flu vaccines offer protection from both H1N1 and the seasonal flu.

How Healthy Is Your Los Angeles Community?

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

How Healthy Is Your Los Angeles Community? Hello Los Angeles residents! Welcome to my children’s health blog, Los Angeles edition. I came across an interesting article in Children’s Health Magazine that got me thinking about children’s health factors in Los Angeles.

Have you considered how your California community influences your child’s health? In a recent study, independent experts compiled statistics on more than 30 factors that are important to a child’s development including: crime and safety, education, economics, housing, education, cultural attractions, and health.1

Burlington, Vermont came out on top, receiving high marks in all areas of study. Burlington has the fewest fast food restaurants per capita and experts believe this is linked to the low rate of obesity. Clearly, the rate of obesity in Southern California and Los Angeles area is partially due to the ready availability of Big Macs and Whoppers.

While moving to Burlington isn’t necessary for your Los Angeles child to thrive, ask yourself how your own California neighborhood ranks. If you think it could improve, attend Los Angeles city meetings or make changes within your own home.

You could encourage more participation in sports, start a crime-preventing Los Angeles neighborhood watch group, cook as a family, or seek out Southern California museums and Manhattan Beach cultural events. Whatever you choose, your children will reap the health benefits of your efforts.

If you want to improve your Los Angeles child’s nutrition, contact me today to learn about a nutritional supplement packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
