No plans for a family vacation this Spring Break? Here are three tips for surviving school-free days at home while taking care of your family and yourself.
Be more flexible
Things are going to be out of the ordinary. The kids are out of school which not only affects your schedule but is strange for them as well. Normal rules may not be followed, schedules may be out of whack and tensions may be high but remember to be flexible.
Get a few new and fun things for your kids to do
Remember to have fun! Try some new games, read a few books or explore your city. Do something new and different that the entire family will love.
Schedule in some “mom” time
Recognize that a huge part of staying sane during spring break is having a few moments of peace and quiet each day. Self-care is paramount and we’re here to hook you up! Stop by hydralIVe for a treatment and leave feeling refreshed, energized and ready to take on Spring Break. Don’t worry, we have plenty of toys and TVs to keep the kids busy while you have some much needed “mom” time.
There are a few different factors that contribute to “aging on the inside”. Our physical environments, our mental well-being, our emotional well-being and the foods we consume, in concert, determine how we age on the outside, as well as on the inside.
Here’s what we know about stress.
Stress on the body, in any form, affects your “state of being”. It could be poor living conditions, pollution, abusive relationships, dissatisfaction with career or at the workplace, financial issues, and nutritional choices we make. Stress is recognized by many as the No. 1 proxy killer disease today. The American Medical Association has noted that stress is the basic cause of more than 60 percent of all human illness and disease. It ages us tremendously, being the root of adrenal fatigue, and the like. Just on the nutritional side of things, over time, our foods have become more and more processed, leaving almost no nutritional value to be had. We live in a faster paced and expensive world, making us dependent on fast foods and easy to fix meals. Whole foods are pricier and take longer to prepare. We, therefore, don’t get all the vitamins, minerals and amino acids our bodies need in order to stay young and healthy and at our optimum. We become depleted, parched, and starved for nutrients…thereby aging us, inside and out.
What you can do to help your body de-stress and gain back your youth and health.
Haven’t you ever realized that after doing a cleanse or detox, or changing your diet, adding physical exercise, going to therapy, changing your physical environment (job/home), or incorporating yoga into your routine, your body automatically responds by rewarding you in some positive way? Maybe you start sleeping better, feeling more positive about life, feeling “cleaner” or “lighter”, becoming more energetic, losing weight, or digestion improves? I’ve personally experienced this in my own life…it’s automatic. You can feel it, and others can see it.
Remedy your stress.
By superior supplementation…IV vitamin and nutritional Therapy. The body will absorb 100% of all the necessary nutrients, and begin to heal itself. There is absolutely no other way to achieve this in a more complete and readily available way. If you do one thing to reduce the stress burden on your body, this is it!
As the first IV hydration clinic in West and Central Alabama, revIVe is creating quite a buzz. We were recently featured on WVUA-23 ahead of our grand opening celebration.

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that keeps your nerves and red blood cells healthy. It is responsible for the smooth functioning of several critical body processes.
It is possible for the body to develop a vitamin B12 deficiency. This deficiency is usually reported with symptoms of fatigue.
Strict vegetarians, heavy drinkers and smokers, pregnant and breast-feeding women, and the elderly usually require vitamin B12 supplements. Sometimes our body, mainly our digestive system, is not able to absorb this vitamin well. This can happen when a person has pernicious anemia, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, bacteria growth in the small intestine, or a parasite. People suffering from these conditions may need vitamin B12 supplements as well.
The top 5 health benefits of vitamin B 12 are:
- It is needed to convert carbohydrates into glucose in the body, thus leading to energy production and a decrease in fatigue and lethargy in the body.
- It helps in healthy regulation of the nervous system, reducing depression, stress, and brain shrinkage.
- It helps maintain a healthy digestive system. Vitamin B12 also protects against heart disease by curbing and improving unhealthy cholesterol levels, protecting against stroke, and high blood pressure.
- It is essential for healthy skin, hair, and nails. It helps in cell reproduction and constant renewal of the skin.
- Vitamin B 12 helps protect against cancers including breast, colon, lung and prostrate cancer.
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Drips deliver vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly to the body for maximum absorption. This allows the nutrients to flood your body and nourish itself at the cellular level. By using this method we can safely deliver larger doses that would not otherwise be tolerated orally.
IV vitamin drips can be used both proactively to maintain optimum wellness and also to treat acute and chronic conditions.
