Welcome To May!

The month of May is a beautiful time of year and one of my personal favorites.  Winter is behind us and the beauty of new life is blooming everywhere!

I found some interesting trivia about May I’d like to share with you:

  1. On May 1, 1931 the Empire State Building was officially opened.
  2. The United Kingdom celebrates May as National SMILE month (I like that – smiling is always good!)
  3. May’s birthstone is the emerald, which is emblematic of love and success.
  4. Despite the birthstone, May was once considered a bad luck month to get married. There is a poem that says “Marry in May and you’ll rue the day”.  I’m sure many happily married couples would disagree with that thought!
  5. In any given year, no month ever begins or ends on the same day of the week as May does.
  6. The month of May was named for Maia, the Greek goddess of fertility.

This month also has several holidays celebrated all over the world:

  1. May 1 is May Day (also Labor Day in Mexico)
  2. May 2 is the National Day of Prayer Holocaust Remembrance Day
  3. May 5 The First of Ramadan begins at sundown (also Battle of Puebla Day in Mexico)
  4. May 10th is Mother’s Day in Mexico
  5. May 12th is Mother’s Day in the US
  6. May 18th is Armed Forces Day
  7. May 20th is Victoria Day in Canada
  8. May 27th is Memorial Day

All of the holiday’s above are worthy of celebration but I have to admit that Mother’s Day is the most special to me.  Being a mother has been the single greatest achievement in my life.  Life may have dealt some hard blows from time to time, but being their mother has made every struggle, every difficult time worth it and more!  I heard a saying once that is so true and on point “Being a Mother is the hardest job you’ll ever love”!

Being a mother means unconditional love for your child. This is a bond like you will have no other human being.  You are their protector, their disciplinarian, their teacher, their friend, and their biggest supporter.  You provide them with a path in life and help guide them a long their way.  Then suddenly they are adults!  Roles sometimes reverse and you take a back seat to the new wife/husband and family your child has created.  But it is a back seat I so much enjoy!  Seeing the adults my children have become and the beautiful families they have made, brings me more joy than anything in my life and makes me very proud.  If anything can come close to the joy of being a mother, it is being a grandmother!

If you are looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift for someone important in your life, please visit DreamProducts.com for an array of Unique Items At Affordable Prices, that any mother would love!

Happy May Everyone!

In Like A Lion – Out Like A Lamb

By Linda Denninger

This proverb has long been aligned with the month of March. When March begins it is still winter (lion), but by the end of the month, spring has begun (lamb).  We’ve had quite the “lion” of a winter this year and I know, I for one, am looking so forward to the beginning of spring when new life begins to blossom everywhere!

March 10th is also the beginning of Daylight Savings time (for all the states that still do the change).  Don’t forget to change your clocks to gain another hour of sunlight!  Love those late evening sunsets!

At DreamProuducts.com we offer so many items to help you get your spring off to a beautiful start.  Take a moment to check out some of our New Arrivals like Quick Lawn .  In just 8 days, you will start to see a carpet of evergreen grass that’s so thick & dense, it actually chokes out weeds, crabgrass & dandelions!  Perfect time of year to seed for a beautiful, long lasting lawn.

Other items to help with your outdoor needs are the As Seen On TV, Pocket Hose® Silver Bullet™. Three different sizes available, and remember, when you shop on line at Dream Products, you pay NO SHIPPING & HANDLING FEES!

Fun Facts About February!

Tags

, , , ,

by Linda Denninger

So here we are!  We’ve already completed a month of 2019!  In many places it’s still SUPER cold out and weather can be such an unfriendly creature!  To all of you in the cold areas, stay safe and warm, and rest assured, Spring will be along shortly!  At DreamProducts.com we are looking forward to the beauty of the new season!

February is the shortest month of the year, with only 28 days, and offers several well-known, and some lesser known holidays, to celebrate.   Here is a list of a few of those dates.

Feb. 2: Groundhog’s Day!   A popular tradition celebrated in the United States and Canada. It derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerging from its burrow on this day sees a shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks, and if it does not see its shadow because of cloudiness, spring will arrive early. It’s a fun tradition but studies have found no correlation between the groundhog seeing its shadow and the subsequent arrival of spring-like weather.  Superstition or not, we are HOPING he sees that shadow!

Feb. 3: National Wear Red Day to raise awareness about women and heart disease.  Although heart disease may often be thought of as a problem for men, heart disease is the most common cause of death for both women and men in the United States. One challenge is that some heart disease symptoms in women may be different from those in men.

These six heart attack symptoms are common in women:

  • Chest pain or discomfort. Chest pain is the most common heart attack symptom, but some women may experience it differently than men. …
  • Pain in your arm(s), back, neck, or jaw. …
  • Stomach pain
  • Shortness of breath, nausea, or lightheadedness
  • Sweating
  • Fatigue

Feb 4:  World Cancer Day – Founded by the Union For International Cancer Control (UICC) to support goals of the World Cancer Declaration written in 2008.

Feb 14:  Valentine’s Day.  The holiday has origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, held in mid-February. … At the end of the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I replaced Lupercalia with St. Valentine’s Day. It came to be celebrated as a day of romance from about the 14th century. A perfect day to give an extra hug to ALL the people you love!

Feb. 18:  President’s Day is celebrated the third Monday in Feb, which this year is Feb. 18!

If you are born in February, your birthstone is an Amethyst (I have TWO children with Feb. birthdays).  Your flower is the Primrose and Zodiac signs are either Aquarius or Pisces.

Take some time this month to prepare for the upcoming Spring season by shopping DreamProducts.com for things to help you organize your home and life style and for all types of Unique Items At Affordable Prices!  Have a great month!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Can you believe it!  2019 already!  The beginning of a new year is a wonderful time to reflect on the prior year, figure out what we did well, and what we’d like to change for the upcoming year!

One common resolution people make is to take better care of their finances in the New Year.  One way to work on that is by shopping at DreamProducts.com where you can get Free Gifts, Free Shipping and find Unique Items At Affordable Prices every day of the year.

Another common resolution is getting organized.  Check out our Shoes Away Organizer! Simply hang it over any standard door and you can store 30 pair of shoes in the see through pockets that provide easy viewing and access!  There are many products on our site that will help you organize your life and your home!

And who doesn’t want the New Year to bring us better health and a slimmer body!  In that regard, check out our Fat Freezer .  This non-invasive system helps to sculpt your body by destroying and dissolving unwanted fat cells.

We all know that walking is one of the best exercises out there, but many conditions don’t allow us to take those daily walks.  So how about trying our Swing Master!  Developed by scientists, this comfortable, easy to use system puts no stress on joints or muscles, yet a 15 minute session is equivalent to a 90 minute brisk walk!  It also helps to relieve back issues and body tension while boosting circulation and metabolism.

Swing Master

So as you start this brand New Year, think not only of the good you can do to help yourselves, but also let’s all put some effort in to helping others in our world.  My favorite saying is from Gandhi, “Be The Change You Wish To See In The World!”

On behalf of all of us here at Dream Products, we wish you the Happiest of New Years!

Ahhh…The End of Another Year!

Every year it seems I say the same thing – “Where did this year go???”  Have you noticed that time didn’t seem to go by so quickly when we were children?  Now it flies by!

If you are rushing to complete your holiday shopping, let DreamProducts.com help you!  With so many Unique Items At Affordable Prices, we can be your “one stop shop”!  Here are some examples to get you started!

Most importantly, however, during this holiday season remember to reach out to those less fortunate.  Mend a relationship that is strained.  Be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.  Take time to take care of yourself.  As I said at the start of this – life is going by quickly.  Enjoy it!

Happy Holidays to all of you and may you close 2018 with peace and serenity, and begin 2019 with excitement and joy!

Holiday Tips

Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your holidays while still taking care of yourself:

  1. Focus on fun – not food! Spend time with people you enjoy.  If you are going to a party, offer to bring a healthy dish.  Have that sweet treat, but then cut back on carbs somewhere else. Eat some veggies first so you aren’t tempted to over indulge in the more fattening offerings.
  1. Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night. Holidays are busy and we are juggling many things at one time, but our body needs rest.
  1. A lot of people experience depression over the holidays. To help with that, make sure you reach out to others and acknowledge how you feel.  Volunteering your time to help others is a great way to help combat your personal depression and bring joy to someone else at the same time. If you need to, seek professional help.
  1. Stick to a budget. Know your limits and stay within them.
  1. Plan ahead. This will help cut back on the feeling of being overwhelmed with too much to do.  Write down what you need to accomplish and plan it out so you aren’t overdoing on any one day.
  1. Take a little time just for you. Spending 15 minutes a day doing something simple like listening to music, reading a book, or taking a walk can help relieve stress and rejuvenate you!
  1. Set aside family disagreements and take this time to bond once again with people important in your life. Someday they may no longer be able to spend the holidays with you.
  1. Be realistic. Not everything has to be perfect to be enjoyable.  Don’t put too much pressure on yourself.  Keep reminding yourself you are supposed to be enjoying this time!
  1. Don’t let the healthy habits you’ve developed through the year go by the wayside just because it’s the holidays. Use the 80/20 rule – 80% of the time, eat healthy so you can enjoy an occasional indulgence.  Make sure you are taking any prescribed medicine and resting as you need to.  Keep up your routine.  The holidays should not be excuse to stop exercising.
  1. Do a kind deed for someone else. Whether it is someone you know or a complete stranger, try to develop the habit of doing one kind deed every day, or even once a week.  Small things count – holding the door for someone who is struggling with packages, helping an older person safely cross the street, volunteering an hour to sit with a nursing home patient who doesn’t receive visitors.  There are so many ways to bring a smile to another person.  This will bring out the TRUE meaning of the holidays for both of you when you do.

Enjoy your November everyone!

Our Dream Products Family wishes you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Tags

, , ,

By Linda Denninger

Breast cancer is very close to my heart as my mother passed away from this disease when I was very young.  In today’s world, she most likely would have survived, due to the advances that have been made in the medical world.  It is my sincere hope that by the time my granddaughters are adults, this disease will be eradicated, or at the very least, easy to detect and cure.

According to Wikipedia, Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.

This yearly campaign works to educate people about the importance of early screening, testing, check-ups and more.  The campaign starts on October 1st and ends on October 31st every year.

We urge all of our friends, family and customers to be diligent in their exams, both self-exams and doctor exams, and proactive in taking charge of your own health.  This “awareness month” should serve as a reminder to all of us (men and women) to make our doctor’s appointments and take care of ourselves and our health.

Many of the bras that we sell at DreamProducts.com are sold to surgeons across the U.S. that use our bras post-operatively.  In speaking with a doctor’s office once I was told that the front hooks make it very easy for the staff to put the bra on the patient immediately following surgery, and the softness of the material, make them ideal for the sensitive skin after surgery.  Often times women must wear a bra 24 hours a day following surgery and ours are comfortable enough to be able to do that.  Take a moment to look at The Doctor’s Choice Comfort Bra and the Sleep Bra that we offer.


Doctor’s Choice Comfort Bra


Sleep Bra

These bras are great for everyone, not just those who have had surgery.  The cups stretch to conform to monthly fluctuations, pregnancy and/or weight gain or loss.  The front hooks make them easy to put on and take off, and the wide comfortable straps and full coverage backs will quickly make them a favorite of yours too!

Wishing you and your family the best of health and happiness this October!  Do your breast exam!

Let’s Make September a “Kindness” Month!

Tags

By Linda Denninger

September brings a bounty of new and exciting things to our lives.  Summer is coming to an end, kids are back in school, weather is cooling off, and most of us have the long Labor Day weekend to look forward to! Time for BBQ’s and getting together with family and friends before we head into the last quarter of this year!

What if we took just a couple minutes out of our busy schedules to think about all the good in our lives and to reach out to make a difference in the life of someone less fortunate than ourselves?   Far too often we are caught up in our day to day busy lives, our own issues and problems (‘cause everyone has them) and we don’t spend enough time reaching out to others.

I’d like to propose a thought here….let’s use the month of September to change that!  If each of us took the time to do a kind deed for another human being during this month, can you imagine the difference we could make in the world?  Just one small gesture can have such an impact on another person.

Have an elderly neighbor that lives alone?  Take them a coffee cake, but more importantly, spend an hour of your time talking to them.   Know a child in your neighborhood that could use some extra school supplies?  Forgo your “fancy coffee” for one week and use that money to buy those supplies for them and leave them in a backpack on their porch.  See a homeless person struggling to survive?  Buy them a meal.  But not every kind deed has to cost you any money.  Volunteer to sit with drug addicted babies at a hospital, visit a nursing home and seek out a patient that has no visitors, or simply spend an hour of your time with someone who needs a shoulder to lean on.  Being kind is really quite simple and yet it matters so much.

I am proud to say that I work with a lot of people at Dream Products, Inc. that do this type of thing on a regular basis.  I’m fortunate to be surrounded daily by good-hearted, genuinely kind people.   I’d like to wish a Happy September Birthday to one of those kind friends and co-workers, Scott Spooner.

So as we roll into the 9th month of 2018, let’s make a pact to positively touch the life of someone else.  The more kind deeds you do, the more you will find peace and contentment in your own heart.  I have a plaque in my office that reads “SHARE.  The real secret of happiness is not what you have or what you receive, it’s what you share.”  So share the love you have in your heart!   Happy September Everyone!

Is Your Arthritis Affected By The Summer Heat?

Tags

, , ,

By Linda Denninger

Summer weather can cause unbearable pain and discomfort for those suffering from arthritis or chronic joint pain.  Temperature and humidity can affect the sensory nerves contained in our joints.  They can also alter the level of fluid that fills your joints, causing inflammation and pain, and can affect the stiffness or laxity in your tendons, muscles and ligaments.

So what can you do to help?  Here are a few tips to help you beat the heat and keep your joint pain to a minimum:

  1. Stay in air conditioning as much as you can. This regulates both temperature and humidity.  Your anti-inflammatory medication will not be nearly as effective in high heat and humidity.
  1. Drink LOTS of water and fluids that contain electrolytes.  Caffeine, alcohol and drinks high in sugar can actually dehydrate you so stick to water and drinks like Gatorade.
  1. Help your body stay cooler by wearing loose, natural fiber clothing like cotton and linen. This allows your body to breath and helps evaporate sweat to keep your body cooler.
  1. Swim whenever you can! Not only is it a great way to cool off, but the water buoyancy also helps relieve pressure on your joints.  Swimming is low impact cardio exercise so great for people who have difficulty exercising with painful joints.
  1. Go to DreamProducts.com to find a multitude of items to both help you beat the heat (such as our Kool-Down™ Air Cooler ) and to help you deal with the nagging effects of arthritis (like our Magnetic Anti-Arthritis Therapy Gloves or our Snap Front Comfort Bra).

We hope you have found these tips helpful in managing your arthritis during this hot month.  At www.DreamProducts.com we strive to offer our customers Unique Items At Affordable Prices to help in your everyday living!  Visit our site and explore the hundreds of items available to you!
