Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system.

Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes. While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes.

Three Ways to Incorporate Music into Your Child's Life

There are so many studies that show a connection between music and intelligence. If you're able to learn and master an instrument, this will help you with focus, coordination and discipline. These traits are amazing ones to instill in your child. If you'd like to find ways to incorporate music into your child's life, consider these three to get started. 


1. Exposure Exposure is one of the most important factors. Allow your child to enjoy a wide variety of genres. So many types of music influence one another. Find children's programming that teaches more about classical music. Find a radio station that plays a lot of kid-friendly rock music. Take your child to the musical arts museum to learn more about the musicians they listen to. Visit a dance theater and become immersed in the arts scene in your local town. As you become more intentional about exposing your child to different art forms, their musical ear will continue to desire more. 


2. Lessons Allow your child to pick out an instrument they're interested in playing. Allow them to take lessons. Many schools offer free lessons as a part of a student's curriculum. You can also decide to invest in private music lessons as well. To find the best instruments, visit a music store boston. Take your child with you so that they can take a look at all of the instruments and make a decision. 


3. Routines When it's time to wake up in the morning, set an alarm that allows a certain type of music to go off. Make sure the music doesn't startle them. However, it should be enough to gently wake them out of their slumber. The same concept applies at bedtime. Whether it's classical music or jazz, make sure your child falls asleep to music as well. You can start this practice from the womb. As they get used to the music, it'll become an integral part of their routine. As you notice their inclination toward a specific type of music, be sure to encourage them. Children always need the support of their parents as they work toward developing positive habits and goals.
