Does Medical Marijuana Lead to Better Strands of Health Benefits?

Image
When it comes to the benefits that you get from medical marijuana, there is a lot of controversy over what is better for the user over some of the other strands. Never have to worry about which to go with, depending on the condition that you have. This is due to the fact that if you’re working with a medical marijuana delivery service, they can recommend the best one for you to go with depending on the prescription and condition.
Health Benefits of Medical Marijuana
Studies have shown that medical marijuana, when used as directed, can provide a lot of pain relief and other health benefits. Not only does it provide the user with less anxiety, but it can help them better relax, sleep or even gain an appetite when they do not have one. This allows a person to gain even more benefits from organic medical marijuana than if they were to take a chemically induced medicine that might suppress them and make their symptoms worse.
It has been shown that medical marijuana does provide benefits to …

The ULTIMATE Camping with Kids Checklist!

Image
It’s camping season! For years my husband and I avoided camping while our son was a baby, and unfortunately we missed out on a lot of super adventures that he could have tagged along for. Don’t miss out on an amazing camping vacation just because you feel your baby or toddler can’t hang!

Here is the ultimate camping checklist for baby’s and kids of all ages! Feel free to make additions and subtractions, and be sure to jot them down to create a unique list your own!

Shelter/Sleep

Tent Tarp Air mattress Manual or battery-powered pump Sleeping bags for the family Pillows Carpet remnant for tent entrance Lantern Flashlights & Headlamps for kids under 5 years old (as they generally have trouble with the concept of pointing the beam where they want to go, and they tend to drop flashlights and lose them) Travel crib, bassinet and/or pack n’ play (it’s just not safe for a baby to sleep on the air mattress with you) UmbrellaHammockCamp Kitchen

The Cardio Sucks Routine

Image
I hate cardio. There, I said it.

I used to absolutely love running and boasted holding the school record in high school for the 3200m, while also running the 800m and 1600m. That’s a lot of running. And at 16, I loved every mile. Now, running is just plain hard on virtually every aspect of my body. So, in addition to my morning and evening yoga routines, how do I add cardio to keep my body and heart in prime condition? The answer is super easy and best of all; requires no equipment with the exception of a stair (or small stool) and a jump rope (or your imagination). 
If you, like me are a cardio-hater, this is the routine for you:

Prior to warming up, be sure to stretch out your hamstrings, quads, calves, inner thighs for at least 2 minutes.

Warming-Up: Complete Each Warm-Up for 2 Minutes March In Place Jump Rope (either with a rope or just using your imagination) Step-Ups (alternating legs)
The Routine: Start: Cross Jacks/Jumping Jacks 2 min. Squats 1 min. Side Lunges (alternating) 20 reps…
