What will it be like at your house when final report cards arrive? Joy, celebration and rewards? Or shock, tears and disappointment? If it’s the latter, don’t dismay. Some of the best opportunities for a student’s growth come from academic failure and setbacks. Failures at school present kids with the opportunity to learn from them, set goals, and to move forward. They can perform better next time. They can build resilience.
Fix your gut health! That's the message that Ashley Koff, Registered Dietitian, celebrated author and public speaker gives to her clients. Ashley believes that in order to function well we need to fix our digestive issues first.
In our interview she discusses her assessment tool, choices that will keep you healthy, the importance of regular check-ins and easy ways to obtain better health.
