MY KIDS EXPERIENCE WITH COZY PHONES

Alternative to Ear Buds

*I received a free pair of Cozy Phones in exchange for an honest  & unbiased review.


Little Simplicity loves his tablet (Mine Craft anyone?) & loves to tune out his 3-year-old brother EVERY DAY after school. I am always on the hunt for safe, kid-friendly headphones for both of them. So I can get a little peace & quiet. I am not a big fan of ear buds. I just feel like kids do not know their limits & turn them up way too high. When I find headphones that go over ears & not into them I get a little excited.

We received a pair of cozy phones that my kids have tried out this week. The packaged arrived and the kids were excited. They love the design, and how soft they are. It only took my 8-year old a few seconds to adjust the ear phones to his ears. They are a like a fuzzy headband with earphones inside. The sound is clear, but not muffled or too loud. While the headband is not adjustable both boys 3 & 8 were able to use them.

These are a great alternative to ear buds. I mean we only had one set, so there were a few fights involved. I will be placing an order for the same exact pair. 

As you can see (below) he loved them. Now the only problem is getting him off of his tablet to do things like eat, drink, & do homework. 


Headphones for Kids

Pros:

  • Sturdy
  • Washable
  • Easy to Carry
  • Comfortable
  • Multiple Styles
  • Volume Limited
  • Perfect for Travel
  • Safe to sleep in 
  • Great Gift
Cons:

  • Not adjustable
  • Too hot in the summer 


I do believe in limiting screen time, but all moms know that it just comes in handy sometimes. Ok, maybe you have to resort to using it daily, but I have found that cozy phones will allow you to do some things in peace without the distracting background noise of Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, Blaze, & video games…..etc.

These would be great for adults and they do have an adult line without the little fuzzy bear face. They also make a great gift.

WHY YOU SHOULD WALK BAREFOOT IN YOUR LAWN!



What is Earthing?
Earthing/Grounding is NOT a new concept in holistic medicine. It is an age-old practice that we have gotten far away from. Our modern fast-paced lifestyles have disconnected us from this practice. We have left ourselves more vulnerable to inflammation, pain, stress, poor sleep, and illness.

Throughout history, humans mostly walked barefoot or with footwear made of animal skins. They slept on the ground or on skins. Through direct contact the ground's abundant free electrons were able to enter the body, which is electrically conductive. Now we run, run, & run some more, wear rubber soled shoes, so we are not reaping any benefits of the negatives ions being released from the Earth.  Through this mechanism, every part of the body could equilibrate with the electrical potential of the Earth, thereby stabilizing the electrical environment of all organs, tissues, and cells. Check out these Thermography case studies. 

Our bodies and cells have electrical energy, and especially with the high prevalence of electromagnetic waves, wifi and mobile phones, many of us have a high amount of positive electrons built up in our bodies.

Humans are bioelectrical beings living on an electric planet. Many diseases are directly related to inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a positively charged molecule. Therefore, by making direct contact with the earth the negatively charged ions are absorbed into the body. They in return reduce the inflammation in the body. Contact with the earth helps restore the body’s natural electrical balance. Our disconnection from the earth has not always been directly related to today’s illnesses. The Journal of Environmental & Public Health has proven this to be true.

The surface of the planet is electrically conductive (except in limited ultra dry areas such as deserts), and its negative potential is maintained (i.e., its electron supply replenished) by the global atmospheric electrical circuit.




Health Benefits of Earthing
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Decrease stress
  • Decrease Depression
  • Decrease Anxiety
  • Improve Sleep
  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Lessens menstrual and female hormone systems
  • Can eliminate jet lag


How do you ground?
It’s free!! So doesn’t that mean it is worth a try? Walk barefoot on the dirt, grass, sand or concrete. Wood, asphalt, and vinyl are not conductive. Do it every day, or as much as you can. If you live in the desert or are unable to ground there are alternatives. Earthing mats and earthing sheets are available online. I personally do not have any experience with them though.

If you want more info here is a book that you may enjoy reading. Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever? Book by Clinton Ober, Martin Zucker, and Stephen Sinatra.

Have you ever tried Earthing, let me know?




Reconnect to the earth………………Happy Earth Day!!
