5 Tips for Keeping Your College-Aged Child Healthy and Happy

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Brita. All opinions are 100% mine.


We moved our oldest back to college a couple of weeks ago and it's been more quiet than usual around here. It's her second year so it wasn't nearly as difficult as the first year, but we definitely still miss her around here. And although she's usually a healthy eater, I gave her some tips on starting out and staying healthy and trying to keep stress to a minimum. I'm sharing a few of those tips today in case any of you have college kids of your own. Let me know if you have any great tips for keeping them healthy.

Growing up in the 70's meant making lots of macrame crafts. We had several woven art pieces hanging on the walls around the house as did most people. And now macrame is making a comeback after being out of style for a couple of decades. Once again, everything old is new again!
