Healthy Family blogs

pappa carina hammock BW and soft focusMy wife Lynn and my kids think I can be fanatical about our family’s health. I would rather say that I have a focus on it :-). I am always asking: Did you get enough water? Have you taken your supplements? How many servings of fruit and veg have you had? Did you work out today?

…my kids think I can be fanatical about our family’s health

The point is I care about being active and what we put in and on our bodies. That’s why I am into essential oils and natural health. If you ask my children what Tylenol is, they may or may not know, but they can definitely say they’ve never taken it. It doesn’t mean we never go to the doctor, it just means that pharmaceuticals are not our first course of action.

Otherwise, we do our best to take care of our physical and emotional health. I’ve even got my daughter started on some self-development books. Dang, maybe I am a fanatic! Be well, Lynn & Jon
