Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am a health psychologist turned mom who loves Starbucks, running, the Kindle app on my iPhone, and good information. After having my daughter, I realized that I had about a quarter of a career left and began blogging.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Hmmm. Tough one. MaverickMom.com is a mommy blog with a flair for health. Maybe the mini skirt philosophy fits here-"long enough to cover what it should, short enough to hold your interest." :-)
I have been blogging since...

Painless Shots for Kids

Posted on May 10, 2010 at 1:09pm 0 Comments

This is one of the neatest things I've ever seen. It's a cute little bumblebee that relieves needle pain when your child gets a shot. Simply press it against the skin above the injection site and it interferes with pain signals to relieve injection pain. Since there are few things I dread more than taking my child to get a shot, I am very interested in seeing how well this thing works. I would imagine that the sight of the needle alone is frightening enough for a child to go nuts, but maybe the… Continue

Addiction Recovery With Exercise

Posted on May 10, 2010 at 1:03pm 0 Comments

Nothing but the addiction seems to satisfy that reward center, and the brain is tricked into thinking that the addiction is necessary for survival.



Quick bursts of exercise at 70-80% of one's… Continue

The Two Best IQ Boosters for Kids

Posted on May 10, 2010 at 1:01pm 0 Comments

New research is showing us fascinating information about the brain. We are now learning that we can form new brain cells at nearly any age with physical exercise, and that exercising before class can significantly boost learning capacity by spawning new brain cells. Learning new information immediately following aerobic exercise fills the new cells with information.



The new neural pathways formed during exercise are like new railroad tracks in our brains. If we don't use them, we… Continue

Do These Things To Live Longer

Posted on May 10, 2010 at 12:58pm 0 Comments

I love it when a “new study” republishes old information. This just in: four behaviors are correlated with longevity. The behaviors studied happen to be physical exercise, nutrition, alcohol use, and tobacco use.



This is old news. There’s such a stockpile of research on the topic already that we now know that 85% of our longevity is tied to our lifestyle behaviors. Your choices usually determine whether or not you’ll live to see your great grandchildren, not necessarily your genes.… Continue
