Happy Memorial Day from DealDash

Happy Memorial Day everyone! DealDash would like to take a moment to thank all of our service members, present and past, and wish everyone a wonderful day.

In case you weren’t aware, Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and the Coast Guard.  Memorial Day is observed every year on the last Monday of May. Normally people think of Memorial Day as the kickoff to the summer season, though technically this year the first day of summer is June 20th.

Memorial Day is not the same as Veteran’s Day; Veteran’s Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, and Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving our country. Veteran’s Day is celebrated on November 11th. Both are very important patriotic holidays that can serve as great learning experiences for children and can encourage them into learning more about our nation’s history.

Memorial Day is celebrated in a variety of ways; typically there are parades, people visit the graves of family members or even strangers who served in the military, there are picnics, and of course everyone’s favorite – BBQs!

Spring is Jumpin’ With DealDash

If you’ve had enough of Spring already and want to jump on into Summer, how about using a trampoline from DealDash?

Sounds fun, right? Well, if you’ve never had a trampoline before, I’m here to tell you that it’s not just for children’s entertainment. Using a trampoline can actually have a great impact on your health. Here are a couple of ways that the trampoline can help you get a little bit healthier:

Improves Your Lymphatic System –

The lymphatic system helps remove wastes from the body. The lymphatic system runs vertically along the extremities, but the lymphatic system has no pump to keep lymphatic fluid and waste products moving. The lymphatic system requires muscle contractions to move waste up the system and away from the extremities. Exercise of almost any kind can help generate this movement, but the up-and-down bouncing of trampolining is extra effective because it’s simple to perform and stimulates the lymph system’s one-way valves to open and close simultaneously, increasing lymph flow substantially as it works against gravity to move up the lymphatic system.

Low Impact Cardio – When you jump on a trampoline, the flexible surface moves with you as you land, reducing the impact of landing. Unlike other forms of cardiovascular fitness such as jogging – where the impact of making contact with the ground can lead to bone and joint injuries of the ankles, knees, and hips – trampolining is less likely to generate these types of impact-based injuries. However, the jumping motion still enables you to increase your heart rate and breath rate, thereby improving your cardiovascular fitness when performed regularly.

Not only is the trampoline fun for just about any age it can improve your health. DealDash has the two types of trampoline that are most commonly found in or around a person’s home – the mini trampoline and the larger outdoor trampoline. The mini trampoline is mostly meant for fitness applications, but it can also be great fun for kids to get some energy out on a rainy day. The larger outdoor trampolines are great for kids and families, but please remember to get a safety enclosure to go with your trampoline.

If you would like to check out both the mini and the outdoor trampoline just click on over to DealDash, and you can see what is available. If you see something you like that isn’t currently up for auction, be sure to click the blue “Alert Me” button and DealDash will send you an email when the auction will be starting soon.

Trampolines can be a lot of fun, but DealDash is always my go-to fun activity in any season. Go check out the Hobbies, Outdoors, & Sports category on DealDash and see if there’s something that you and your family can use for some jumping into summer fun. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

Making Your Yard a Peaceful Place With DealDash

With all of the deadlines and hustle and bustle of life sometimes it’s nice to just come home and relax outside by your beautiful lawn. But what if your lawn isn’t so beautiful and peaceful?

As someone who is easily stressed out I crave quiet time alone just sitting outside on my deck that looks out over my lawn. However, after some poor lawn management last year my yard isn’t looking so nice. Luckily for me DealDash has plenty of things that can perk up my backyard to make it not only beautiful, but a peaceful and tranquil place that I can go and escape my worries for a few minutes.

I find the sound of running or trickling water extremely relaxing and peaceful. One of the first things that I would like to get to perk up my backyard is a fountain from DealDash.  The fountains that DealDash offers are made to last season after season, and they are constructed of stone powder and polyresin so they will be durable for outside use. If you think that a fountain would look great in your yard, garden, or patio you can check out this link here to see the fountains that DealDash is offering for auction.

Another thing that I have always admired in other people’s backyards is when there is a bench overlooking the yard, instead of just some lawn chairs. Benches lend a touch of class and they don’t break the bank, either. Benches are great if you want to share a seat with your kids or your sweetheart, and some benches even have gliding features built in for a soothing rocking effect. If you’re interested in checking out the benches up for offer on DealDash just click this link here and it will show you some different styles.

Just Keep Swimming With DealDash

Today’s article is all about swimming! Not only is swimming fun it’s also great for your health and an important life skill to have.

Okay, let’s see a show of hands – who knows how to swim? All of you?! Excellent! As I’m sure you already know, swimming is a wonderful life skill to have that is a wonderful gift that you can give to your children. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) There are approximately 3,500 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States —  that’s about ten deaths per day. An additional 347 people died each year from drowning in boating-related incidents. About one in five people who die from drowning are children age 14 and younger. As you can see from these statistics it’s extremely important that you and your children know how to swim, just in case.

In addition to swimming being a skill that everyone should master, it’s also extremely healthy and good for your body. Even elderly people who have trouble walking long distances can usually swim for their health and enjoyment because in the water you are practically weightless, so therefore there is very little stress on your bones, ligaments, and joints that can lead to pain.

Swimming is a good all-round activity because it:
  • keeps your heart rate up but takes some of the impact stress off your body.
  • builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness.
  • helps maintain a healthy weight, healthy heart and lungs.
  • tones muscles and builds strength.

If the safety and health benefits aren’t enough reasons for you to go swimming, then how about the fact that swimming is extremely fun an loved by both young and old? Every single kid I know loves going to the pool, and most of the adults enjoy taking them as well. Swimming is a great family activity because everyone can participate, even babies can get in the water as long as they are being helped by Mommy or Daddy.

Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to go somewhere to get all of the great benefits of swimming? Well, thanks so DealDash you can! DealDash occasionally has above ground pools up for auction as well as all manner of pool accessories and toys.

Everyone wants to look great for the summer, but most of us probably indulged a but too much during the holidays. DealDash is here to help.

You might wonder, though, exactly how far you are walking and what exactly you’re doing to help your body. DealDash has a solution for that.

Most of us are familiar with the old pedometers that count your steps. There is anew breed of computerized pedometers that can not only track your steps but also connect with your computer via a small WIFI dongle to upload all of your information, keep track of it, and help you meet your fitness goals.

If you’re most interested in boosting your fitness and getting a beach body by walking and keeping track of your steps a great item to pair with your pedometer would be a treadmill. A treadmills are great for letting you get a workout accomplished during any time of the night or day and in any kind of weather.

Let’s look at it this way – treadmills are the indoor motorized equivalent of walking or running in place. You simply keep up with a belt that’s moving under your feet. Your treadmill workout will burn about the same number of calories as walking or running outdoors, yet in your lovely air conditioned, TV with cable, and internet equipped house. DealDash has a selection of treadmills that come up for auction. If you would like to check them out please click on this link here. If you are interested in one of these treadmills please click on the “Alert Me” button on the auction’s home page and you will receive an email when the auction for that particular item is about to begin.

Exerpeutic 400XL Electric Treadmill

Please remember, if you are just getting started on your road to fitness and you’re someone who hasn’t had any strenuous physical activity for at least three months, it’s recommended that you begin with walking. By training consistently (initially twice a week and then three times a week), you can gradually increase the intensity of your exercise by increasing your speed and incline.

If you have been sedentary for 6 months or more it would be an extremely good idea to have a check up with your doctor to make sure that you are healthy enough to start a fitness program. Also, they might be able to give you some great tips on fitness taking into account your own personal medical history.

 

In addition to exercising eating healthily is a huge part of fitness. Please check back on the DealDash blog this Wednesday for some more tips on fitness and getting your best body for summer.
