Children

Children don't do what we tell them to do, they do what they see us doing. That's why it's so important that we as adults, parents, teachers, grandparents, etc. are good role models for our children.

A child needs a safe environment in which to grow up, develop and be themselves in order to reach their full potential. In a family where the parents have adopted a healthy lifestyle, the children also gets a better start in life.

The child follows its leader, just like any herd animal, and healthy parents are more likely to raise their children with a healthy lifestyle.

  • The famous keyhole - A trend that lives on?!


    We sit in the kitchen and eat our breakfast as a family. Before my 8-year-old daughter starts eating, she lines up everything on the table. I ask her what she is doing and she says, as if it is a matter of course, that she puts the packages in order according to how much sugar each product contains. On the far left is the unsweetened almond milk and on the far right is Dad's orange juice...

  • Time is high up on my wish list!


    I wish for time.

    Time is like an endangered flower, an endangered species. At least if you are a parent and especially if you are the parent of a baby. Being there for a new little person all the time is absolutely wonderful, but at the same time so incredibly time-consuming and binding. In my case, I am available 24 hours a day, and should I have the occasional time to do something else, then I'll also have the energy to do those things I dream about when I'm with my baby all the time, like taking a shower in peace, going shopping, sitting down undisturbed and drinking a cup of tea or, like tonight, getting a whole 2 hours to produce something (writing and working on my website gives me energy, as long as I don't make it a must).

  • Baby massage for all ages - this is how easy, effective and cozy it is!


    When my eldest daughter was a newborn, we went to baby massage together. An 8-week course that have benefited my family enormously. I have streamlined what I learned and I basically only use the belly massage today, which works perfectly on all members of the family! It not only helps with tummy aches in little babies but also to unwind after intense days of daycare/school/work. The massage helps with both gas and constipation, it's like an extra help for the bowels. Periodically we have had a massage session as part of our bedtime procedure and then the babies always fell asleep much quicker and also slept more peacefully throughout the night. So it's minutes well invested every night. And if you want your partner to fall asleep faster, you can give him/her a round too:-)

  • 7 good habits for effective adults and happy children


    Doesn't it sound great to have a world full of efficient adults and happy children? But how would it work?

    I myself have always tried to please everyone else, tried to meet other people's expectations of me even as a small child, and then when I had children of my own, I thought that the children must be first in line for my attention, maybe I can develop my dreams and have more time when the children are older. But my thinking didn't work for very long, prioritizing yourself for someone else and constantly trying to please others is not very sustainable. I disappeared as Johanna and only parts of me remained. Imagine if I had learned as a child the reverse way of looking at things; that I am actually highly responsible for my own life and my visions and that I can go as far as I want as long as I put myself first and when I learn to take care of myself and live according to my visions and goals, I can also take care of others in a much better way. That's how I think now and I know that my children and husband are so grateful to have a strong, determined mother and wife respectively.

  • Olivia's Reflections from New Energy Mother


    The Mother & Daughter’s Retreat was a weekend of fun, creative mother & daughter time.

    We did all kinds of things, like hiking up to the maze made out of rocks, late nights in the Jacuzzi, teaching yoga to our moms (all the girls and I made a yoga class for our moms to enjoy), drawing a mandala with your mom, and a dress-up and dance surprise!

  • 9 ways to treat sore throat naturally


    A few weeks ago, our youngest child started complaining that she had a sore throat and my first thought was: "Oh, no, not now!" I really didn't feel like everyone in the family was going to get sick and in the event of a sore throat also have to take antibiotics!

    So instead of taking her to the doctor, I used my knowledge and compiled a list of what we did to boost her immune system, so that the healing process could begin.
