Although a traditional shower can be refreshing, a steam shower may prove to be an even better way to stay cleansed. While people have been taking steam showers for centuries, the newest steam rooms on the market are more technologically-advanced than ever. Here are some of the benefits of a steam shower.
Improved skin clarity
By taking a steam shower at least twice a week, many people have reported a dramatic improvement in their skin clarity. The steam helps to keep the pores of the skin unclogged by pushing out dirt and dead skin cells.
A steam shower promotes better circulation of the blood. This is a very important attribute for people that are experiencing muscle fatigue and soreness. The increased circulation also lessens the risk of hypertension.
A steam shower is very effective at leaving stress. The warm water vapors soothe the mind and body. This will also enable the person to get a good night’s sleep. If you desire to further enhance the mood, Shop for an illuminated steam shower.
Helps relieve respiratory infection symptoms
If a person is feeling congested due to a sinus infection or common cold, a steam shower can bring instant relief. The steam will decrease the amount of inflammation to help the individual breath a lot better.
Helps weight loss
A steam shower is able to speed up metabolism by triggering the lymphatic system, thus burning more calories.
The kids always look forward to Tuesdays because they have Physical Education at the Bangkapi Youth Center. We are so blessed to have this facility that’s really close to our place. With a one-time registration fee of 50 THB (1.50 USD), you will be given a membership card with no expiration.
Members of Bangkapi Youth Center would get to enjoy most of the facilities there for free at any day of the week. For this badminton court, we only pay 25 THB (.8 USD) for an hour. The other facilities like the fitness gym and pool would be for free.
Here are the kids playing badminton with their homeschool teacher, B. All kids are getting better every week, thanks to B’s patience and helpful tips.
Both hubby and I are not really sporty, so we are glad that the kids have grown to love playing a sport. We thought it would be a good idea to let them continue playing when we will be in the Philippines. Hopefully, they would have the chance to play with teams, too. Earlier this year, we bought Ria a pair of running shoes. Thankfully, she is allowed to use it in the court because we thought they could only use badminton/ non-marking shoes. As for Roi, he really asked for a pair. We were doubtful at first if it would be wise to buy him one because we were not really sure if he’s really interested in playing or not.
Turns out that he is really serious and is so proud that he is doing better at his moves.
According to studies, here are some benefits of sports education in children (given of course that it is good for their health):
- Team work
- Fair play
- Respect for themselves
- Adherence to the rules
Good sports coaches do not just aim to harness the players’ technical sports skills but to develop all the aspects of the individual as a whole.

I have heard of moms like me who worry about their children sleepwalking. I, too have had experiences of our kids sleepwalking, although they have seem to have outgrown it. But for the sake of those moms whose kids still do sleepwalk, I have done a little research on its causes and symptoms.
Apparently it’s a sleeping disorder that causes people to get up and walk while they are in their sleep. It is most common in children, although for some people, it could last unto adulthood. Now sleepwalking could come in many forms– some could just be quietly walking around the room, while some would seem to be on the run. Typically, the eyes of sleepwalkers would be glassy and expressionless. When asked a question, people who sleepwalk might answer, while others don’t. If a sleepwalker goes back to bed after roaming around the room, he or she does not remember anything about the incident. Some people who awake while walking around most likely would be conscious of what happened to him or her.
So what exactly are the sleepwalking causes:
Sleepwalking runs in the genes, which is why many parents are not so worried about their child’s sleepwalking because maybe they also sleepwalked as a child.
2. Environment Factors
- Sleep depravation
- Changes in schedules/ sleeping schedules
- Alcohol intoxication
I remember our girl have had so many sleepwalking incidents when we moved to Thailand. It was most probably caused by the hectic schedules we had and the many places that we have been to before we got settled in our new home. Obviously she got stressed out by the many changes that was going on for us at that time. Kids who also travel to a different time zone could sleepwalk.
3. Medical Conditions
Parents could often find their children sleepwalking when having fever or asthma attacks at night or when they are under medical treatment.
So all in all, I think that sleepwalking, although it is called a “disorder,” is nothing to be worried about. Most children outgrow them. If your child is still sleepwalking, just make sure he or she has enough hours of sleep and as much as possible, stick with a schedule and establish a more stable sleeping pattern.
