Have you sent a child off to college? It’s an emotional and exciting time to watch as they pursue passions, manage hard work – and they’re off on their own for the first time. This can also create healthcare challenges!
Today, I’m sharing how non-traditional access to expert doctors helped our family handle one of those situations.

Getting too little sleep, called sleep deficiency, can lead to some serious physical and mental health problems, and can also put you at higher risk for injuries, and even a higher risk of death. Sleep, just like breathing, eating, and drinking, is a basic human need. Sleep plays a very important role in your health and well-being for your entire life.
Are you a camper? Or, does your family want you to be? My idea of roughing it is a limited-service hotel. But, my husband and son have determined this is the year they’ll win me over to being in the great outdoors for longer than just a barbecue.
I’ve done some camping “research” (ok, mainly asking friends and watching shows like Running with Bear Grylls). Still, I’m sharing 4 tips to make camping more tolerable, oops…I mean more enjoyable.
Who has extra time to search for a new doctor? Whether you’ve recently moved (like me) or your insurance changed, it can be quite a task to locate new doctors that are both in-network AND accepting new patients – let alone accommodate other special preferences and needs you may have!

Do you love to travel? It’s a passion of mine to experience new cultures and meet new people. However, getting back to the normal routine when I arrive home can be a challenge – hello jet lag.
There’s actually a medical term for jet lag, it’s called desynchronosis. Airhelp.com defines it this way: It means that your circadian rhythm – your body clock – is out of sync. Your body thinks it’s still in one time zone, but it’s physically somewhere else. So it gets confused, tired and stupid.

Do you get an annual physical or regular check-ups? An op-ed piece in the New York Times suggested we skip our annual visit to the doctor. Why? Apparently after years of solid research, it was found that “annual physicals did not reduce mortality overall or for specific causes of death from cancer or heart disease.”
My son was sick and needed a couple of prescriptions. I looked
them up with the freshbenies app and found I could save over $70 on
one of the prescriptions just by driving 5 minutes away to a local grocery store.
A difference in price of $24 and $93 between two different pharmacies. I couldn’t believe it! I was so thankful I quickly used the app to research what my options were in my area. It’s so easy to use!
