Hello. Wonderful people. Welcome to another episode of Fit and Fabulous with me, Dr. Orlena Kerek.
I hope that you are feeling fit and fabulous. We have another day today here in Spain, which is typical of 2020. I was just about to set out, dropping my kids off at school. We had our jackets on, our masks on and I was just arranging to meet up with one of the other mothers so that I could give her some uniforms that we no longer want.
And then I checked the WhatsApp group and saw that there were lots of messages. Guess what? No school today....
We all want to lead a long, healthy and active life. What we eat is a major contributor to our health and longevity.
But what exactly should we eat? What should we avoid? And why?

It's easy to say healthy living is all about habits and systems. The reality is that in order to make changes, to create different habits and systems you need to get across the "rickety bridge".
You need to do things differently. Our habits keep us wanting to do the same thing.
So what is the very first step in making those changes?

Most kids I've met love screen time. I don't know about yours, by if my kids aren't hooked up, they're asking to plug themselves in. As a mother, I can see the benefits of screen time for kids (not least, a bit of peace and quiet for me.)
But what about our kids' brains? I worry that young brains get hooked on screen time (not to mention my own, older brain!)
Plus I notice that there's often an undercurrent of stress surrounding screen time. When can we have more? Can I play longer? The screaming and crying when it's over.
We've experimented with not having screen time at all. It works remarkably well. After a few days, my kids will start playing cards together.
But I don't feel this is a long term solution. How can us parents manage screen time so that our kids can enjoy it in a healthy way?
