Hi, Mamas!!

I recently partnered up with Erin McHugh and LaShawn Michalski, Fitness Exercise Specialists at Valley Health LifeStyles in Mahwah, for fun and easy workouts. Try them for yourself here!

As we continue to explore our "new normal," face masks are a key part of staying safe! I worked with Valley’s director of developmental pediatrics, Dr. Lisa Nalven, to share some information on face masks and young children!  

Our parent guide, "Children and Face Masks," offers tips for encouraging your child to wear their mask. By wearing a mask, kids don't just keep themselves healthy - they can keep their families and community safe, too ... like a true superhero!

A quick reminder that Valley’s Health & Wellness Center has FREE LifeStyles at Home fitness classes online! There are lots of great classes right at home, from cardio and strength training workouts to mind/body classes. Check them out on our LifeStyles website! 

Stay well, and stay connected!
