  • Getting Enough Sleep?

    Insufficient sleep is a big problem in today's hustle-and-bustle world, even for children.

    Here are red flags of too little sleep, courtesy of the National Sleep Foundation:

    •     Dragging oneself more than 15 minutes after waking up.
    •     Sleeping at least two hours extra on weekends and holidays than on weekdays.
    •     Falling asleep in the car or during activities where you should be staying awake.
    •     Acting grumpy, irritable or hyperactive.

  • Keep Hair Looking Healthy

    Hair treatments designed to improve your appearance may actually be damaging your coiffure.
    The American Academy of Dermatology suggests these healthy hair tips:

    •     If possible, use color that's no more than three shades different than your natural hair color.
    •     Always test at-home color before using it on all of your hair, checking for rash or irritation.
    •     Wear a hat with a wide brim to protect your hair from the sun.
    •     If you perm your hair, always follow the instructions. Set a timer to make sure you wash out the perm solution promptly.
    •     See a dermatologist if the perm solution causes severe burning or stinging.
