Folks with children are always interested in feeding their imagination and keeping them active. With most of today’s past-times being electronic such as the Game Boy, Xbox, Playstation, computers, iPads, and iPhones, it is important to get your children out and about. Did you know that there is such a thing as negative and positive ions in the atmosphere that can affect your mood? Positive ions are unhealthy for your mind and body and are associated with electronics and being indoors. Negative ions, on the other hand, calm you, lift your spirits, and make you feel good and are found outdoors, especially near water. Let your kids experience the benefits of negative ions while enjoying Heritage Park Play Island in Cerritos, CA.
