Health Is Wealth


Okay, photo above was taken at a hotel. Review to follow. When? That remains unknown LOL. Anyway, I have succeeded in achieving the normal weight for my body built. My problem now is my blood which lacks hemoglobin. I am blaming it on my not so balanced eating habits for the past months. Guilty, yes I am. Yesterday I finally had the courage to take in a vitamin supplement with iron. Eeeehh I ended up nauseated and dizzy. To cut the story short, I am back to square one. I will try another brand on Sunday, haha. Somebody please put some sense into this crazy brain and force me to heal myself pronto! Got to work for now. No worries, I am eating health today. Swear! Aaahh no swearing tehee! :D



Hoarder Overhaul!


Let’s be honest.  We are all guilty of hoarding something.  Whether it is letters from old friends, photographs from our relatives or even a collection of cabbage patch dolls.  Our homes are filling up and, as the saying goes, an untidy home leads to an untidy mind.

Unless you have the biggest house on earth, chances are you are losing valuable space for the things you really need and use.  Perhaps you have a garage so full of boxes that you can’t get your car in their anymore.  If that doesn’t bother you because you prefer your car on the drive, then perhaps you could consider how a garage conversion could create you a rentable space which could help cover the costs of your bills or give you an extra area for when friends and family come over.  Your boxes of unused items may seem pretty harmless sitting their out of the way, but when you consider the alternative uses for the space they take up, you could find you are missing out on financial opportunity.

So, where do you start and how do you keep on top of your hoarding habits? Let’s take a look.

Do a Little Exercise

It may seem counterproductive, but doing a little exercise everyday can get your body pumping with pain-blocking chemicals that will make you feel much better. Activities that are easy to do when you’re dealing with pain include walking, swimming, yoga and dancing. You don’t have to exercise for long, just make sure you do a little every day, and you’ll start to see results.

Relax and Recharge: Home Upgrades That Will Improve Your Life

We all have our problems, life's trials and tribulations mean we can be up one minute and down the next. Bills, relationships, family drama and pressure at work can all mount up until you’re left feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Life will always happen regardless of what we do, but we can change the way we respond to things. Taking time out for yourself can put you in a much more positive mood, and give you a brighter perspective.

Finding calm when busy life has you in it’s grip is so important. Long-term stress can lead to chronic health problems so it’s something you should always take seriously. Having a home where you can fully relax and unwind can help you to achieve this. Here are a few of the upgrades you could consider.

A Spa-Like Bathroom
A hot bath eases knots, reduces blood pressure and gives you a bit of quiet alone time where you can just clear your mind. But if you’re surrounded by cluttered surfaces, peeling vinyl floors and chipped tiles it’s not the best environment to relax. You might be able to get away with giving it a minor refresh- a deep clean, a grout pen and some new fluffy towels might do the trick. If it’s worse for wear and needs updating, this is definitely money well spent. Sinking back into a luxurious roll top bath with stunning tiles and beautiful fixtures- you’ll get that spa-like feeling every time you go into the bathroom.

No Time To Cook? No Problem!

When you have a to-do list that is as long as your arm and you feel like you are going to crumble from all the pressure, even the smallest of household duties can sometimes tip you over the edge. Moms these days are expected to be able to do it all - hold down a full-time job, keep the house immaculate and ferry their kids from one after-school club to the other every single day! If that didn't sound exhausting, add on the fact that more often than not, moms also have to make sure their children are eating healthily too. It can be all too tempting just to cave and order takeout when the last thing you feel like doing is spending hours slaving away in the kitchen. Sometimes, this isn't even a bad thing - the occasional takeout never harmed anyone! But make a habit of it and you could not only jeopardize your own health, but you could instill unhealthy habits into your kids. Convenience food and fast food is even said to have addictive qualities, so the more you can stay away from it, the better for your whole family. But what do you do when you honestly don't think you have time to cook? The first thing to remember is that you don't need to be cooking a spectacular three-course meal every night for you, your partner and your children. Something simple will suffice, and simple doesn't mean you need to compromise on taste. Plus, there are plenty of ways you can save time in the kitchen - a tasty, healthy meal can even be out in 30 minutes or less providing you know what you are doing! Here are some time-saving tricks you just HAVE to use in your kitchen today.
