AstroSmart Canine Cognitive Smart Chews by Astro Biosciences

Dogs are important members of the family. We raise them, we put up with their chewing anything and everything during the puppy stage, and we treat them like one of the family. In turn, they provide us with years of loyal companionship and unconditional love.

So what can we do when our beloved furry best friends begin showing signs of aging or slowing down? This process can be heartbreaking to watch, as they lose the endless energy of their youth and begin to slowly deteriorate, both physically and cognitively. Just like we would for any other family member, we do everything in our power to help them through this stage. We feed them high-quality food, purchase joint supplements, and do anything else we think may provide some relief or help them feel like themselves again. While this helps take care of their hips, joints, and hearts – what can we do for their brains?

AstroSmart Canine Cognitive Smart Chews, the world’s first soft chew supplement with ingredients clinically shown to improve brain function, cognitive focus, and mental performance. It’s an easy to chew, great tasting product that dogs love. They are 100% safe and can give your dog back the energy, enthusiasm, and playfulness of their youth. They have been shown to curb destructive behavior, reduce anxiety and stress, and help dogs maintain a calm and relaxed disposition.

6 Things To Remember When You’re Furnishing A Bedroom

Your bedroom is the last thing you see when you go to sleep and the first thing you see when you wake up. That’s why it’s important that you decorate and furnish it nicely. If you wake up in a bedroom that you aren’t comfortable in, you’ll start the day off in a bad mood. A bad bedroom can have a serious impact on your sleep as well which causes you all sorts of problems. There are a lot of rules that you have to follow when you’re decorating a bedroom like staying away from any bold patterns or over the top colors that might be too stimulating. Furnishing a bedroom is tricky and if you get it wrong, you’ll end up wasting space and creating a cramped room that you can’t sleep properly in. But it doesn’t have to be as hard as you think to furnish your bedroom properly, you just need to consider these things.

Start With The Bed

If you buy all of your furniture at once, you might find that you can’t fit everything in or some of the pieces don’t look right in the room, at which point it’s already too late and you’ve wasted a load of money. This is especially important if you’re moving house and you’re trying to buy furniture before you’ve actually moved into the house. The bed is the most important piece of furniture in the room because it’s a focal point and it takes up the majority of the space. That means you need to build the rest of the room around the bed. When you start furnishing, buy the bed first. Then you can start to think about what other pieces of furniture will work well with it.

When you’re buying your bed, you need to consider a couple of things. Firstly, be careful with the size. It’s tempting to buy a huge king sized bed but if it only just fits in the room and you don’t have any space for other furniture, you’re going to end up with a cramped bedroom with no storage and hardly any floor space around the bed. Don’t just buy the biggest bed you can fit in there, think about how much space you’ll have around the bed once its in.

Once you’ve found a bed, you need to get a mattress for it. Mattresses can get quite expensive and you might decide to save yourself a bit of money by getting a cheap one. But cheap mattresses are cheap for a reason; you’ll end up with a bad back and you’ll never get a good night’s sleep. It’s better to spend a bit more money on a decent one so you don’t have to replace it in a couple of years.

ZITS! The New Obsession for Kids and Disgust for Moms.

“We love picking. Make no mistake about it. We love that disgusting little habit nobody likes to talk about. Yup, it is our unique obsession.” – Billy and Summer Pierce

These have become quite a hit and have been selling rapidly online.

Popping pimples is a habit for some and just silly fun for others. This bizarre, but brilliant idea is designed to mimic the unique obsession of popping pimples. With all the entertainment the pimple poppers provide, it is easy to see why it has become such a hot product.

Tips for Making Music Part of Everyday Life

Making Music a Part of Daily Life

I grew up surrounded by music – between my time learning to play the piano, my developing love of singing, and the music my tone-deaf-but-enthusiastic mother played around the house, my life was built as much note by note, as it was day by day. You may have heard that involving a child in music on a regular basis helps a child improve their mental abilities, and those musical habits can reach far beyond just a weekly lesson. Here are some ideas for using the bonus listening tracks provided by Hoffman Academy for making music a part of your daily life.

Waking Up with Upbeat and Uptempo Selections

Use an upbeat, cheerful, or rhythmic selection to help your child gear up for facing the day. Spinning Song, Yankee Doodle, and When the Saints Go Marching In are great options from the Listening Tracks. You can also find selections on YouTube or Spotify-type apps such as Sousa marches, Wagner Ride of the Valkyries, or Mars from Gustav Holst’s The Planets. These songs will get you moving, up and at ‘em, and out the door with a hopeful attitude.

Build Music Skills AND Togetherness With Sing-Alongs

Singing is one of the best ways for children to begin to train their ears and develop musical skills that will carry them through the challenges of learning an instrument. And singing TOGETHER can build some fun feelings – especially when doing other chores or household tasks. Grinding Corn, Love Somebody, Mary Had a Little Lamb, and Row Row Row Your Boat are some favorites with all ages!
