F-A-R For Springdale Kids With Asthma

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

F-A-R For Springdale Kids With Asthma Attention Springdale parents of children with asthma: Johns Hopkins Children’s Center recommends the FAR approach to prevent flare-ups. FAR stands for Flu shot, Avoid triggers, and Regular use of meds.1

Flu Shot: Respiratory infections are dangerous for Springdale children with asthma. The flu shot lowers the risk of catching a bug and also helps lessen complications for those who do get the flu.
Avoid triggers: Springdale parents of asthmatic kids should determine the triggers and protect their child at their home, Springdale school, and wherever their child spends time.
Regular Medication: The meds referred to are the controller or prevention medications, not the rescue meds designed for use after an attack is in progress.

The Johns Hopkins article also reminds parents to be extra careful when the seasons change–a common time for an increase in attacks.

I am Springdale children’s health advocate Patsy Hardin. I can be reached at 479 616 1933 and patz777@hotmail.com. Call me for information on a new children’s nutritional product now available in Springdale.

Homemade Heat Pack For Fayetteville Kids

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Homemade Heat Pack For Fayetteville Kids

Fayetteville parents are great at helping their children stay healthy and safe. Today on the Rogers Children’s Health Blog, we wanted to give parents another way to help their kids: homemade heat packs. These easy-to-make heat packs are great for growing pains, sore muscles, or just some extra coziness at bedtime.

To start, simply go to any fabric store in the Lowell, Springdale, or Bentonville area and choose some fabric (actually, you could even use an old t-shirt, fabric scraps, or a sock you have lying around). Cut two layers of the fabric one inch bigger than the desired size of the heat pack you would like for your child. A long rectangular shape is usually best.

Next, starting with one of the long sides, sew along the edges making sure to leave room for the seam allowance. Leave one short end open and fill the bag 2/3 full of rice. You can add a few drops of essential oil or herbs (these can be found at most Rogers natural food stores) to give the heat pack a pleasant odor for your child. Tie the bag off at the open end with some cotton string, or stitch it shut, and you’re done!

When your ready to use it, be safe by only heating it in the microwave for one minute. Check to see if it’s warm enough, then add time in short increments from there. If your kids prefer a cold pack in the summer, these bags can go in the freezer to chill for a spell.

If you want to get extra fancy, any Lowell, Springdale, or Bentonville fabric store would have interesting trimmings to add. But remember to avoid ribbons that have metal wire in them.

Healthy, happy Fayetteville kids and their parents can be comfortable all year long with these quick and easy heat packs!

Does Your Arkansas Family Have An Emergency Kit?

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Does Your Arkansas Family Have An Emergency Kit?

Smart residents prepare for emergencies, and parents of young children in the Fayetteville area should be aware of the special nature of preparing their families for emergencies.

Since the health and safety of all family members is important, everyone’s needs should be taken into account when preparing emergency provisions.

A 72-hour emergency kit should be easy to grab and contain essentials like water, food, first aid kit, flashlight, prescription medications, etc. Rogers families should consider what each child eats. Formula and bottles should be included if you have infants, and soft baby food (and a spoon!) for toddlers. Don’t forget diapers and baby wipes: you can find convenient travel sizes of these at Bentonville, Springdale, and Lowell area drugstores.

Since healthy kids grow and change so quickly, Rogers families should update these emergency kits at least twice a year.
A good reminder is daylight savings time. When Fayetteville families change their clocks, they should change the food and supplies in their kits.

I’m Patsy Hardin and the health and safety of Rogers kids is important to me. I am the owner of a home business that sells the XoBiotic Square because the phenomenal probiotic delivery ability.

Family Meal Time in Rogers

Family Meal Time in Rogers

Rogers parents want to make sure that their kids spend time doing things that will help them be healthy and successful. Because of this, juggling the family schedule and prioritizing activities are a major part of parenting in the Bentonville, Springdale, and Lowell areas.

With all this competition for your child’s time, you may be surprised to learn of the advantages Rogers kids receive when families make time to eat dinner together.

Studies have shown that kids who have frequent family dinners benefit in the following ways:

Improved grades
Eating healthier meals
Less likely to try cigarettes, alcohol, and marijuana
Increase in family communication
Less likely to become overweight or obese

If you want to help establish a more regular dinner time for your family, here are some tips for Fayetteville families. Start by setting a small goal, like sitting down for dinner twice a week, and then add days on after that. Next, involve the kids by letting them help plan and prepare the meals and set the table. Lastly, always make mealtime a technology-free zone: no TV or phones allowed!

And remember, even if you’re in a rush and have to pick up dinner at a local Bentonville, Springdale, or Lowell restaurant, take the time to sit down together to eat. Your family will still enjoy many of these benefits.

I am the owner of a Fayetteville area home business that sells the XoBiotic Square because the phenomenal probiotic delivery ability.

Can Your Lowell Home Business Customers Contact You?

Can Your Lowell Home Business Customers Contact You? Welcome Lowell entrepreneurs! If you would like to contact me, here is my information:

Registered Nurse but my passion is being your Wellness Consultant Patsy Hardin
Rogers, Arkansas 72758
479 616 1933   patz777@hotmail.com

The reason I included my contact info at the beginning of this post is because today’s article discusses the importance of accessibility.

Your contact information is probably the most important thing to include in your Arkansas small business communications. I am surprised, however, at how many Lowell home business owners don’t understand this simple fact. Neglecting the most basic things can cause major problems for anyone: Lowell home business owners as well as presidential candidates.

Those of you who are old enough to recall the 2000 US presidential election may remember how the layout of the Florida state ballots confused some voters and was a complicating factor in the recount. (Remember the hanging chads?) I doubt that the candidates worried about the design of each state ballot. However, all the campaigning in the world is wasted if the voters can’t figure out how to cast a vote for you. Likewise, all the internet marketing in the world won’t bring you sales if your internet business customers can’t contact you.

ListPipe, the corporate blogging experts point out that many Lowell home business blog visitors only enter your site to quickly copy your contact information. Make sure your Activ and now Xe Healthy Energy Drink customers can easily copy and paste your email address and/or phone number into their contact formats.

Now consider the other side of the coin: how can you easily get your customers’ information? Many Lowell internet marketers use built-in contact forms that automatically capture your customer’s information and email it to you. If you are not currently using content forms, you may want to take a look at them.

Operating a successful Lowell business depends to a large extent on paying attention to the simple things. If you would like more tips, give me a call at 479 616 1933. That’s 479 616 1933. Or email patz777@hotmail.com. That’s patz777@hotmail.com. I am Patsy Hardin.

Flu Shot Guidelines For Bentonville Kids

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Flu Shot Guidelines For Bentonville Kids

Every year as winter approaches, many Bentonville parents wonder if they should get their kids a flu shot.

Everyone gets the flu, right? Is it that big of a deal?

In most cases, the flu is an inconvenience, but not detrimental beyond missing a few days of school. However, Bentonville pediatricians caution that it is extremely important for high risk kids to get a flu shot. Ditto if your child is in regular contact with a high risk person.

What qualifies a child as high risk? Bentonville experts say that chronic medical conditions such as diabetes or asthma puts a child at greater risk because the flu can contribute to serious complications. Many Bentonville doctors also recommend flu shots for all children under five years old. Bentonville experts advise getting your child’s flu vaccination as early as possible, in August or September or as soon as it is available, to protect them through the entire season which generally lasts from October to April.

Remember that two shots are required for children under the age of eight, given four weeks apart, for full protection your first year of getting vaccinated. Just one shot per year is needed after that.

Flumist is a nasal spray vaccine that can be given to healthy children ages two and up, an option that can be more child friendly. Side effects from either method of vaccination may include runny nose, muscle aches, vomiting, or low grade fever. The new flu vaccines offer protection from both H1N1 and the seasonal flu.

Life is Better Working At Home In Rogers

Life is Better Working At Home In Rogers

If you don’t have your own home business yet, you must have a great Rogers corporate job. If that’s not the case and you need to supplement your income, why not consider an easy home business?

Think of all the pros of running a business in your Fayetteville home! You will save on gas if you don’t need to commute. (That’s a significant source of savings right there.) You can write off some of your mortgage or rent. You can set your own hours and be your own boss. Sound good?

If you have decided to launch your own Rogers home business, the next step is choosing which one. I suggest a direct selling business. Today’s MLMs are much better than the companies of the past. It has never been easier to run an MLM from your Rogers home.

Most of the current network marketing companies don’t require affiliates to purchase large inventories. You can buy product as you go and you won’t need to take out a loan to start your company.

I am a home based business owner in Fayetteville with a large Activ and now Xe Healthy Energy Drink network marketing business. If you are unsure about MLMs, give me a call and I will give you the straight story.

Should Rogers Online Sellers Respond To Negative Reviews?

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

Should Rogers Online Sellers Respond To Negative Reviews? As a mentor for new Rogers online business owners, I am mindful of how search engine dynamics affect home based business owners with online stores.

There are two schools of thought about negative reviews: To respond or not to respond.

In an article in the Direct Selling News, author Don Sorenson very effectively explains why responding to negative reviews may increase the harm to your online reputation. I believe the points that Mr. Sorenson makes regarding negative reviews are important for every Rogers online seller.

I quote from Mr. Sorenson’s article:

‘When you see a negative review about your company the instinctive reaction is to post a response to set the record straight. I understand the human need to respond, but you have to consider Google’s point of view. Here’s why: Search engines rank various websites high for a few reasons, one of which is relevant content, especially when that content is updated on a regular basis.’

‘When you post a comment on a website, you are in effect giving it new content. And if you get into a back-and-forth discussion with someone on a review website about your company, Google thinks ‘Ah, there’s a lot about this company here, so we’ll rank this website high for searches on their company name.’

‘Now when someone does a search on your company, they are even more likely to see the negative review. You want to avoid that. In fact, you want the websites with negative comments to slip further down the Google rankings so they don’t appear on the first page or two of a search.’ Don Sorenson, “Protecting Your Company’s Online Reputation,” Direct Selling News, March 2011, http://www.directsellingnews.com/index.php/site/entries_archive_display/protecting_your_companys_online_reputation April 2, 2011

Of course, Rogers home business owners should respond to complaints by actual customers with legitimate problems. However, consider carefully whether your customer service efforts should take place in an online public forum.

Other social media experts believe it helps a company in the long run to respond to negative reviews. Here is a link to an article that supports this view: http://mackcollier.com/study-responding-to-negative/

I hope this helps Rogers online business owners understand the ramifications of responding to negative online reviews. For more information about owning your own home based business in Rogers, contact me today. I have helped hundreds of Rogers entrepreneurs live their dream of business ownership.
