Babies are people. They are communicating all of the time and want to be seen and heard by their loved ones. Babies cannot manage their emotional experiences without the help of caregivers; they learn how to manage their emotions by feeling the feelings of the people caring for them...
Editor's Note: As caregivers, it is only natural for us to want to soothe and quieten a crying baby as quickly as possible. In this article, parenting expert, Carrie Contey, reminds us to first check in with ourselves before rushing in, so that we can better deal with the cause of baby's discomfort.

I’ve been running for as long as I can remember. As a child, I ran with our horses in their pasture. In high school, I ran to chase teenage loneliness.

As a Middle Eastern Diplomat in my thirties, I ran to protect myself in danger zones...
Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Nicole and I connected online over our shared understanding that exercise improves brain function. But we became friends over a hike in the Mojave Desert while Nicole was in Utah training to run two 50k endurance races.

Editor´s Note: Now is the time to turn back the clock with food. Healthy, leafy greens boosted with some baby grasses, quality protein and knowing the right oils to cook with prove to reverse signs of aging. Certain fruits help plump the skin and achieve that nice healthy glow, but watch those grains. Whole grains, not refined, are crucial to reduce inflammation in the body, the key to keeping beautiful skin.
