It's no secret that we spend more time with our devices than with our loved ones.

And although it provides a solution for family members looking to reduce their screen time, at its heart The Well-Balanced Family is about learning to take the newly-available time and channel it toward strengthening family connections, spending more quality time together and supporting each other in developing healthy, productive, and enjoyable lifestyles.


The Well-Balanced Family focuses on four areas: Connectedness, Open Communication, Fitness, and Organization. Using an evidence-based approach, author Robert Myers, PhD teaches parents how to encourage developmental play activities, develop avid readers, instill cooperation and mutual respect, improve physical fitness, build self-esteem and character, and reduce struggles over bedtime, chores, and homework. It also provides tips for helping kids safely make the most of their screen time.


If your family is more interested in their phones and tablets than in each other, The Well-Balanced Family will teach you everything you need to reclaim that sense of familial connection and love.

Add Joy to Your Bathroom with Hand Soap from the Softsoap Décor Collection

I have a long list of things I’d like to do to update my house, but time and money mean that many of those upgrades aren’t going to happen for quite some time. However, I really enjoy taking little, inexpensive steps to add joy to my home. For example, I recently bought an inexpensive patio set for my front porch and added a little duck in rain gear that makes me smile every time I arrive home!


There’s also plenty that you can do inside the home to make you smile that won’t cost a lot. Pick up some summery dish towels, add a new rug or throw pillows, or put a new coat of paint on the walls.

The bathroom is one place that we spend a lot of time in, so it’s a great idea to make it a happier place to be, too. One way to do that is to add some hand soap that’s not only functional, but looks great on the counter and smells good! The Softsoap Décor Collection is the perfect way to add some joy to your bathroom. Look how pretty they are!



And the Softsoap Décor Collection is available in five wonderful fragrances: Jasmine & Mint, Orchid & Coconut Milk, Peony & Plum, Shea & Cocoa Butter, and Wild Basil & Lime. I had a really tough time deciding which one I wanted to use first because they all smell so wonderful! I finally decided on the Orchid & Coconut Milk because it combines two of my favorite things: flowers and coconut. It adds a summery touch to my bathroom and, just like the duck on my front porch, makes me smile every time I see it.

According to a Toluna study, more than 79% of Americans wish they could bring more joy into their home, and 69% specifically wished to add joy to their bathroom! Adding hand soap from the Softsoap Décor Collection is a wonderfully inexpensive and easy way to bring a little happiness to your home (and help your family stay clean, too!).



Disclosure: I received complimentary product samples to facilitate my honest review.
