Spa Utopia VancouverGoing to the spa for some treatment is not only relaxing, but rejuvenating as well. Spa treatments invigorate the mind and body. If you’re planning on treating yourself to a day or a week in spa, it is important to choose one that would best suit your needs and wants.

Consider five important things when choosing a spa – price, destination, treatments, staff, and facilities.

nail biting fights backNail biting or onychophagia is an unwanted but very common behavior characterized by putting one’s nail into the mouth and chewing on it. Some may say that nail biting is a harmless habit, but it’s actually considered a disorder that affects almost anyone regardless of age and gender. In the United States, 23% of children 3 to 6 years old, 33% of children 7 to 10 years old, and 45% of adolescents have nail biting disorders.

Continuous nail biting can result to damaged or bleeding nails. Some cases leave the gums damaged. Severe cases involve biting the nail until lost. Some cases are so serious that even the cuticle, the nail-bed skin, or even the finger is chewed. Nail biting can also leave injuries exposed to viral and microbial infections, especially when saliva gets into the wounds. Nail biting can also result to dental problems, and when bitten-off nails are ingested, stomach problems can occur.

Free Toddler Boy Using Green Crayon to Color Creative CommonsEvery child has creativity that’s just waiting to be uncovered. Children as young as infants can already show hints of creativity in them. Their creativity is further honed up until they reach their older school-age years.

At infant stage, children already respond to sound, movement, and color. As toddlers, they begin flexing their muscles. This is the best time to give them things like crayons, drawing papers, clay, and other art materials.

When they reach their preschool years, children become these bundles of energy, saying and asking a lot. They talk, play, and run around a lot. This is when they learn how to perform, dancing and singing to gain attention. And even when they’re trying to flip through the pages of their favorite books, despite not being able to read yet, they’re just as creative.
