Supporting Children and Grandchildren

Supporting Children and Grandchildren with Dale Barzey-Pond

Dale Barzey-Pond is a Registered Nurse & Midwife who was born and raised on the tiny Caribbean island of Montserrat. She received her nursing and midwifery education in the UK and considers herself fortunate to have had the opportunity to practice her craft in the UK, Montserrat, and the USA.

She has worked in several specialty areas including OR, ER & ICU and of course as a Midwife. Dale is a wife, a mother of three, and a grandmother of three. She is currently the host of the YouTube channel Nurses Talking.

Gaining Perspective on Loved Ones

For Dale Barzey-Pond, it wasn’t until later in her life that she recognized the wisdom of her own grandmother. Without perspective, it can be difficult to recognize the insights our older family members can provide.

As a grandmother herself, Dale works to provide the same wisdom and insights for her grandchildren that her grandmother gave her.

Acting as a Role Model For Your Family

Leading by example is one of the best ways to be a role model for others. An instance of this Dale uses in her own life is brushing teeth. Making it an activity done together can create lasting lessons and memories.

Dietary Shifts in Montserrat

Montserrat has seen many cultural changes and shifts over the years. When Dale was growing up, the majority of the food was produced locally. Families raised their own livestock, red meat was consumed infrequently, and the majority of the diet was fresh, local produce.

Since then, the diet has shifted significantly in Montserrat, especially after the 1995 volcanic eruption. The event radically altered the landscape and culture of the island. Like many other parts of the world, imported, processed food has become much more common.

It’s Never Too Late

It’s important to remember it’s never too late to make a change. Changing your diet and lifestyle habits at any age can make a major difference to your short and long-term health and wellness.

It’s never too late to make a change and improve your overall health and wellness. Many people believe that making a change is only necessary when you are young, but this is far from the truth. Regardless of your age, making positive changes to your diet and lifestyle can have a significant impact on your health, both in the short and long term.

For instance, simple changes such as increasing your water intake, reducing your sugar and processed food consumption, or adding a regular exercise routine can lead to significant improvements in your physical and mental health. Remember, the key to making a positive change is to start small and be consistent.

Move, Move, Move!

Moving is one of the most universally important things people need to do. Staying physically active one way or another is immensely beneficial for your mind and body. So keep moving!

Moving is absolutely crucial for our overall health and wellbeing. It’s not just about staying fit and toned, but also about keeping our minds sharp and our spirits high. When we engage in physical activity, our bodies release endorphins that make us feel good and energized. It’s a natural high that we can achieve simply by moving our bodies.

Whether it’s going for a walk, dancing to our favorite music, or hitting the gym, any form of physical activity is immensely beneficial for our mental and emotional health.
