Often times good stuff gets lost in the clutter, do you agree? For those who are rather new to the Confident Mom community , I wanted to re-post this great webinar I did two years ago on tips for a great summer. If you’ve been getting organized creating your summer with the Summer Survival Calendar and also using the Action Guide, these extra tips might be just what you need.
Also, I am excited to share that beginning June 1st, I will be doing a 30 days series on all things summer! Watch for that to begin.
I had such a great time presenting some great tips with Trading Cradles on the webinar they hosted. It is always fun to talk about summer and help moms make the most of this precious time with our families. Instead of it being a stressful and overwhelming time, it can be full of great opportunity!

For over a year now, I have tried to eat a mainly gluten free diet in order to combat Lupus symptoms. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body) I have Cutaneous (skin) Lupus Erythematosus as well as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. One of the symptoms I experienced was pain in my joints due to inflammation.
There are 35 diseases that can be caused by eating gluten listed in a review in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Some of these symptoms are: arthritis, ADHD, depression, anxiety, IBS, lupus, frequent headaches, fatigue, eczema, loss of muscle coordination, osteoporosis, a weakened immune system, fungal overgrowth, organ inflammation, weight loss/weight gain, and malnutrition. Gluten sensitivity also increases your risk for type 1 diabetes, obesity, gastrointestinal cancers, brain disorders, autism and thyroid disease.
