Happy 4th Of July America!!

By Linda Denninger

We’ve found some interesting facts about the 4th of July as well as the month itself, we thought we would share with you!

1.  Congress made Independence Day an official unpaid holiday for federal employees in 1870. In 1938, Congress changed Independence Day to a paid federal holiday.

2.  Only John Hancock actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. All the others signed later.

3.  The first Independence Day celebration took place in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776. This was also the day that the Declaration of Independence was first read in public after people were summoned by the ringing of the Liberty Bell. Today they tap the bell 13 times to honor the first 13 colonies.

4.  President John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe all died on the Fourth. Adams and Jefferson (both signed the Declaration) died on the same day within hours of each other in 1826.

5.  In 1776, there were 2.5 million people living in the new nation. Today the population of the U.S.A. is approximately 326,766,748!  We’ve grown a bit!

6.  Fireworks are part of the tradition of celebrating this national holiday. But PLEASE remember our furry friends on this date! So many animals are frightened and run away on this holiday.  The loud noises frighten all animals, not just the domesticated pets.  Please think about them when planning your celebrations.

7.  Ruby is the birthstone for July.

8.  MY birthday is in July!!!

9.  BBQ’s are big for celebrations. Over 150 MILLION hot dogs and over 700 MILLION pounds of chicken are consumed in the U.S. on the 4th.

10.  DreamProducts.com has so many items to help you with your 4th of July BBQ, staying cool during this hot month, and all sorts of UNIQUE ITEMS AT AFFORDABLE PRICES!

We hope the first half of this year has been great for you and that the second half is even better!  Enjoy!

Don’t Let The Heat Ruin Your Summer!

The beautiful month of June is upon us!  This month brings us half way through the year and is the start of summer!  So many fun and exciting things happen in summer but, there are also a few hidden risks to be aware of.

Did you know that seasonal changes and types of pollen in the air in the summer may serve to trigger headaches and migraines among people prone to these conditions?   By taking sensible precautions against the heat, you can help to control these events.

It is believed that the summer heat can trigger migraines by causing scalp arteries to dilate.  One way to help avoid this is limit your time in the sun and be sure you are wearing a hat or sunshade.    It’s also wise to wear sunglasses with polarized lenses to cut glare and help trigger headaches brought on by bright lights. For instance, take a look at our BattleVision glasses.

If you suffer from migraines, or other headaches, check out our Therapeutic Relief Face Mask.

Ah yes, we’ve been waiting for you!   The snow is melting, the trees are starting to bud, and the first hint of flowers are starting to peek through the recently frozen earth.  My favorite time of year!

Technically, the March equinox is Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 12:15 P.M. EDT.

Astronomically speaking, the equinox falls on March 19 or 20 every year, marking spring’s beginning in the Northern Hemisphere (whereas it announces fall’s arrival in the Southern Hemisphere). The equinox happens at the same moment worldwide, even if our clock times reflect a different time zone.

Meteorologically speaking, in the Northern Hemisphere, the official spring season always begins on March 1 and continues through May 31.

All that info is interesting, but to me, the important thing is that Spring is the beginning of new life everywhere we look!  Time to start our gardening and enjoy watching the fruits of our labor start to blossom and bloom!

A perfect time to take a look at our Lawn and Garden Category at www.DreamProducts.com!  We offer a wide array of items to help make Springtime YOUR favorite time of year too!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside & My Arthritic Joints Feel It!

February, the month with the fewest days, but frequently the COLDEST days of the year!  Whether you are battling snow, rain or just cold temps, www.DreamProducts.com has what you need to make it to Spring!

In an article I recently read in “Arthritis and Osteoporosis” (see article here: https://www.arthritiswa.org.au/content/page/winter-amp-arthritis.html) I found it interesting that Professor Jamison of Harvard Medical School and Chief Psychologist at the Pain Management Center  advises “…The factor that may be responsible for increased pain is not snow, cold or rain, but actually, a change in barometric pressure”. Barometric pressure (atmospheric pressure) is the force exerted onto a surface by the weight of the atmosphere at any given point. As a storm system develops, the barometric pressure begins to drop.

Jamison explains the impact of barometric pressure on the body through a test conducted with a balloon. “When a balloon is inflated, it has the maximum inside and outside pressure. High barometric pressure that pushes against the body from the outside keeps tissues from expanding.” As the barometric pressure falls, tissues in the body may expand. As the tissues expand, they put more pressure on nerves that control pain signals.

“It doesn’t take much expansion or contraction of tissue to affect a pain trigger,” Jamison said. Therefore even individuals who live in drier climates also reported feeling more pain with weather changes.”

Whatever causes the pain is interesting, but if you are suffering from Arthritic Pain, RELIEF is what you are really seeking.  Having chronic arthritis and osteoporosis myself, I know the pain it causes and the joy I feel when I find something that actually HELPS!

At Dream Products we carry a wide variety of products in our Health & Beauty category that bring blessed relief to many arthritis sufferers.  From slippers that stretch to accommodate swollen feet and surround you in cozy warmth and comfort, to magnetic therapy items that millions of people have believed for centuries, help circulation and pain reduction, to lotions and sprays for pain relief.

Visit our website at www.DreamProducts.com to find what you need to get you and your arthritis through this cold, wet month.  Hold tight……Spring is on its way!

Seems I was just getting used to writing 2017 on things!

Holidays can bring on a lot of stress for people with all the planning, shopping, cooking and get-togethers.  But it is important to slow down and appreciate the beauty of the season as well.

No matter which holiday you celebrate, or even if you don’t celebrate them at all, this is still a wonderful month to spend with family and friends reliving your accomplishments of the ending year, and reviewing your goals for the year to come.

It’s important to take good care of yourself during these stressful times as well.  Make sure you are getting plenty of sleep, drinking lots of water and TRY to eat as healthy as possible.   Everyone indulges this time of year so just plan for it.  Going to a party on Saturday where you know the food will be plentiful?  Try to eat extra healthy for a few days BEFORE the party.   Going to have a busy week next week?  Try to set aside a few moments each day to relax and calm yourself.

Holidays are supposed to be FUN!  Don’t let stress and worry ruin that for you.  None of us are perfect – you don’t have to be either!  We place a tremendous amount of stress on ourselves to make everyone else happy.  Sometimes it’s important to look in the mirror and recognize THAT is the person you must make happy first!

At www.DreamProducts.com  you will find an array of items that are perfect for gift giving, and also items that will help YOU relax and enjoy your holiday season a little more.  A great example is our Foot Vibe Pro:


Foot Vibe Pro

Nothing feels better than a nice foot massage after a day of shopping or cooking!  And what a wonderful gift to give to someone else!

So as we close another year and start the exciting venture into the next one, take some time to really think about the good things in your life.  The people you love, the joys you have experienced, the simple pleasure of inhaling that crisp December air!  Life – like the holidays – is meant to be enjoyed
