Cook Up Some Changes! Ideas To Help You Transform Your Kitchen

Cook Up Some Changes! Ideas To Help You Transform Your Kitchen

Make It Practical

The most important factor in any kitchen renovation or redecoration is the practicality of it. Obviously the redecoration itself will be a hellscape of dust and mess, but during the actual design process you need to figure out what exactly you want from your kitchen and how to achieve it. Maybe you want to add more flavour to your cooking – if so, make sure that your spice rack is fully displayed. If you want to get better about recycling, why not add a trash can with multiple sections to make it easier for you? Whatever you want from your kitchen, from extra storage to more surface areas, can be achieved.

Transfer Your Own Style

Before you make your final designs for your kitchen, take a walk upstairs and open up your closet. Look at what styles you love to wear, and consider how to transfer them to your kitchen. If you love bright colours then why not add an accent wall in your kitchen or crimson and blue tiles? If you’re more into neutrals, go for pale pine or granite surfaces along with white cupboards and storage. Make sure that the décor of your kitchen reflects who you are as an individual, and ensure that you add some art to make it even more beautiful. Finally, don’t forget the plants and greenery! If the rest of your house is filled with succulents and flowers – even if it isn’t! – you should make sure that you add plants to your kitchen. What about a little herb garden on the windowsill?

Look Online For Inspiration

You don’t have to think of all your ideas yourself. Make sure that you look online at décor blogs and interior designers for some ideas that you would never have thought of yourself. Not all of us know intrinsically how to revamp your kitchen – we need help from the professionals, or at the very least, someone who’s done it already and knows what to do and what to avoid.

Make It A Family Hub

One of the most important factors about your kitchen to remember is that it’s one of the most important rooms in the house and you need to decide what exactly you want it to be used for. If you have a separate dining room where you like to eat then you might just want a breakfast bar – but many families want a big dining table in the kitchen too, where your kids can do their homework while you cook dinner, and where you can all eat together while you chat and catch up on what happened to each other that day. Make sure that the table is comfortable, that it fits enough people, and that the chairs are easy to sit on for a prolonged period of time. If you have teenagers then you’ll probably know that it can be hard to coax some decent conversation out of them at the best of times, so it’s important to make the circumstances as welcoming as possible!

Make A Change For The Sake Of Your Health

Make A Change For The Sake Of Your Health

We all go through those periods where we simply don’t feel satisfied with our lives. After all, the only way that would happen is if we all lived in a perfect world and if you’ve ever five minutes of the news you’ll know that we are most definitely not living in a perfect world. So it’s only natural to have periods of time where things aren’t so great. The problem is when those periods start to outnumber the good times. Despite what some people might say, this can be an extremely dangerous position to be in. A lot of people would tell you to simply power through and wait for things to get better but doing that can cause some serious damage to your health. Your mind and your body are both intimately connected and if you’re completely miserable, exhausted and stressed all of the time then that’s going to have an impact on you. Both your mental and physical health are incredibly important, and you need to take care of them both. So instead of waiting for things to get better, it’s time to take some control of your life for the sake of your health! If you’re unhappy with the way your life is going, it’s time to make a change. Here are just a few ways that you can change your life to improve the state of your health.

Your lifestyle

food_2949278158https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Food_(2949278158).jpg

A lot of people get stuck in a rut and find that they simply can’t pull themselves out of it. The problem with that is that you almost always end up going round in circles. There are hundreds of different things that people use to deal with tough times in their life, but the problem is that many of them are incredibly unhealthy and potentially dangerous. If you’re relying on food to make you feel better, then that’s going to make you put on weight which will not only sap your energy even more but may even make you feel worse. Worse still is those who use alcohol and other substances to escape their problems. It might be a short-term escape but those problems are always going to be there the next day, and you’re just going to feel worse than ever before. The most important thing is to break out of that cycle and make some real changes to your lifestyle. Try and be more active for one thing. It will give you a reason to get out of bed every day and will help you to keep your energy levels up. The same goes for your eating habits. Cut out the junk food, and you’ll be amazed at how much better you feel.

Your job

One of the main causes of stress, anxiety, and frustration is often your job. Let’s face it, we all hate our jobs sometimes. If we didn’t, they wouldn’t call it work! Sometimes it’s just a matter of focussing on the things that your job lets you do, like seeing friends, going on vacation, and going out to dinner. A change of perspective really can work wonders. But if your job is sapping all of the life out of you, and you dread getting out of bed every morning then it might be time to do something a little more drastic. Why not think about a serious career change? If you’re stuck in a job that you don’t like then why not find something that you will find fulfilling. If you’re a creative type then why not looking into freelance writing or design. If you want a job that will help people, then you definitely want to take a look at staffnurse’s nursing vacancies. Whatever it is that you want to do, it surely has to be better than whatever it is that’s currently making you so miserable? A new job can bring fresh purpose into your life which is sometimes all you need to get out of a funk

Your friend circle

When you’re going through a tough time, having a support network in place to help you get through it is absolutely invaluable. No one should have to deal with something difficult by themselves and your friends are exactly the people that you should be going to when you need help. Unless you’re in the position that you have friends who seem to actively try to make you feel worse. Whether that’s through insensitivity or even making you feel like a burden on them because of what you’re going through. You need to talk to those people and tell them that what they are doing is hurting you. If they refuse to understand and continue to behave in this way, then it’s time to cut them out of your life. You simply don’t need toxic relationships making things worse. Cut ties with people who make you feel awful and hold onto those friendships that really matter. You’ll be amazed at what a weight off your shoulders it will be when people like that are out of your life.

Your home

Sometimes you need a really significant change. Perhaps you don’t feel as though you can grow as a person where you are, or perhaps the place that you currently live simply carries too many memories and too much baggage for you to deal with anymore. If that’s the case, then there’s nothing wrong with needing a completely fresh start. Moving somewhere new is a great way to reinvent and reinvigorate your life. You get to make new friends and new memories, without all of the baggage of where you were before. Just make sure that you’re doing it for the right reasons. Needing a fresh start is great, but you don’t want to do it if you’re just running away from something else. If you are, it doesn’t matter where you go; you’re always going to have that niggling sense of doubt. It’s important to feel a sense of closure with the place that you’re leaving, that way you can feel totally comfortable saying goodbye.

Things Need to Change…

Things Need to Change…

Your home and the space that you live in can have a massive impact on your mood. It could be that you feel sluggish and unmotivated when you walk through the door, or that you go into a total state of relaxation and don’t want to do anything for fear of being snapped out of it. There are certain jobs that you can do around the home to make you feel a bit more fresh, get you moving and have a long impact. Things that you won’t need to do again for a while, but make all the difference when they’re done.

Clean your blinds and curtains

Most people don’t realise that both curtains and blinds can get as dirty as anything else – after all, they are hung up in your home absorbing everything in the air that they possible can. Especially in kitchens, you may find that any upholstery has a greasy sheen to it, or is a bit sticky/stiff to the touch due to the fumes that are emitted when cooking. Give them a bit of love and treat them to a wash. Roller blinds can be hard to manage to get clean, but a simple wipe-over should suffice. Other blinds such as vertical blinds can be taken off and washed individually – a long and laborious task but one that will be worth the effort made when you see what a difference it makes to your room.

Change your bed, change your mattress

A lot of people know that changing your bedsheets will lift your mood and give you something to look forward to upon your return, but few people know that your mattress is recommended by professionals to be changed at least one every eight years. It’s not an everlasting investment; mattresses change over time just as your body does, and they may not be changing at the same rate or in sync with one another. What started out as the best and most comfortable home for your body to sleep on can eventually turn out to be causing damage and discomfort, as much as you may think that it’s comfortable still to sleep on. Read reviews on the best one to get for both your needs and your budget at sites such as https://www.mattress-guides.net/top-mattress-back-stomach-side-sleep-position/ – it’s best to see the pros and cons of each product before making your decision.

Go around the skirting of your home

You may not notice what places are getting especially dusty around your home until you’ve actually dusted them and noticed how the room has lifted. Go around the skirting boards and the doorframes of your home – any ledges which may be sticking out are in need of a wipe-down to get them back to how they’re meant to be. It’s strange how much it can do to lift your mood, but living and working in a clear and clean space can create this feeling.

pexels-photo-38084Picture Credit

Wipe on top of your cupboards and wipe them out

Much the same as skirting boards, cupboards are often forgotten and neglected as something that will need a good clean more than once a year. In your kitchen, just as your blinds will have done, cupboards can get grease sticking to them quite easily – but again, just like blinds, it will only need a simple wipe-down if it’s not that bad. The tops of cupboards are often forgotten, but they will need a clean too! There is so much dirt and dust that can gather on top of them, and once it’s all done you at least know that you don’t have to make such an effort for quite a long time. The sense of achievement out of doing such a mundane task is something that can be focused on for quite a while afterwards.

Go through your drawers and get out clothes

Take out all the clothes that you haven’t ever worn, have no intention of wearing again or that don’t fit you. Hold on to the stuff that you are sentimentally attached to and put to one side – everything else, put into a bag for charity, give away to friends or list for sale. Not only will it give you the space to go out and buy things that you will want and love, but it will clear out so much unnecessary stuff in your life that could be otherwise holding you back; if you clear out a space in your drawers or wardrobe, you are clearing out a space in your mind.

pexels-photo-165831via Pexels

Rearrange your wardrobe to make everything fit

After arranging all of your clothes and chucking out those pieces that don’t warrant being in there anymore, rearrange your wardrobe to fit in everything neatly and try and couple up outfits together that you know will work. Organise sections for daytime, evening and office wear; what may take you a bit of time to accomplish now will save you tons of time in the future.

Declutter your life

The last step towards shaking off that sluggish feeling! It’s one thing to declutter your wardrobe, but a whole different level to try and declutter your house. Getting rid of everything that is unnecessary and brings you no joy is a hard thing to do, as we make up theories of when something made us happy and try to cling onto it for as long as possible – it’s part of our human nature. However, there are some things that you will put to one side and throw away and you will never even notice that they have gone – you may have a faint memory of them in the future when you look back on old photos, but the impact that they are making when they are there is probably non-existent. This can include everything from books that have been read once and are shelved just for show, to ornaments that hold no worth or meaning to you. Decide what needs to go and make the change for the good of yourself and your health.

Nourish Dry Winter Hands

Nourish Dry Winter Hands

Winter comes and the skin does it’s best to protect itself, but we’ve all been there… painful, dry, cracked hands.

What can we do to nourish them in a way that’s long-lasting?

Using a hand cream can work for a matter of hours to minutes at a time. Replenishing oils is the only way to get down past the first layer of skin. Drinking plenty of water helps keep your skin hydrated. Consuming enough liquids during the day in the winter is just as important as getting your fluids in the warmer months.

If you need to apply something to the skin’s surface, using natural oils is the way to go. Most of us have them right in our kitchen. Lathering hands in coconut or olive oil can bring great benefit when left on the skin for at least ten minutes.

One oil I found to have amazing benefits is Argan Oil. (Greenesthetics.com has a great selection of sizes and prices.) It penetrates down deep, thorough several layers of skin. Here’s the bonus though, it absorbs into the skin so well, I don’t need to rinse my hands after applying.

You can use all these natural oils on the body, face and hair with fabulous results and ultimate protection from winter damage.

7 Simple Tips for You to Treat Bacterial Vaginosis Effectively

By Guest Blogger, Rose Emma

7 Simple Tips for You to Treat Bacterial Vaginosis Effectively

bacterial-vaginosis-jpg

 

Vagina has always been a sensitive and troublesome area for women because a lot of things can go wrong easily and threaten the quality of their sex life as well as the well-being of their happiness. The most common vaginal infection is bacterial vaginosis which is backed up by the fact that 75% women at the age of 15-44 has it at least once in their lifetime.

Bacterial vaginosis happens when harmful bacteria in the vagina outnumbers good ones and gets out of control. It’s a mild infection and in some cases, it disappears on its own without any touch of medicines. But if you find the symptoms, including vaginal discharge, itching, burning sensation when urinating or foul smell, high chance you might get bacterial vaginosis. It’s not hard to combat this conditions, but if you hesitate to get treatment, you will put your health at risk of getting STDs and other severe infections.

Here we provide some of the most effective home treatments for bacterial vaginosis which are all easy to perform at home in order to completely manage the condition.

  1. Yogurt

It is recommended by many gynecologists to support the treatment of bacterial vaginosis with yogurt. Lactobacillus acidophilus – a good type of bacteria in yogurt holds the power to reestablish the pH level in the vagina.  One cup of yogurt in your daily diet also gives your immune system a happy boost, which helps our body fight against bacteria more effectively.

  1. Tea Tree Oil

The powerful antifungal and antibacterial properties make tea tree oil a hero when treating with bacterial vaginosis. It is very effective in killing harmful bacteria and alleviating the symptoms. The strong exotic odor also outweighs the foul smell caused by bacterial vaginosis, making you feel less concerned with the odor of the sensitive area.

How to use:

  • Mix a few drops of tea tree oil in purified water and clean your vagina daily.
  • Another option is to soak in a tub of warm water with a few drops of tea tree oil for 30 minutes.
  1. Fenugreek

Fenugreek is long known to be able to balance the pH level in the vagina as well as the level of hormone in the body. Fenugreek also regulates the menstrual cycle which plays a big role in the natural healing of the vagina. Fenugreek should be consume orally only.

You can add a tablespoon of fenugreek powder to your cup of yogurt. The effect will be doubled.

Or follow many others people who soak the seeds in water and drink the water in the morning before having breakfast.

  1. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil again proves its irreplaceable status in home remedies. It is packed with antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties which are very beneficial in treating bacterial vaginosis if you apply it in the right way.

How to use:

  • Drop coconut oil on a tampon and insert it into your vagina for two hours, rinse well with clean water and pat dry with a towel.
  • Include coconut oil in daily cooking to improve your immune system
  1. Hydrogen Peroxide

This versatile solution can be used to treat bacterial vaginosis effectively. 3% hydrogen peroxide can disinfect and control the development of harmful bacteria. It also helps relieve itchiness and pain caused by bacterial vaginosis.

How to use:

  • Make a solution from water and 3% hydrogen peroxide in the ratio 1:1
  • Cleanse your vagina with this solution 1 or 2 times a day. Remember to gently dry the area with a clean towel.
  1. Good Vaginal Hygiene

It sounds obvious, but it would be a mistake if we rule this out from the list. A good vaginal hygiene plays an important role in control the growth of harmful bacteria. If you don’t keep the area dry and clean, you can turn this area into a favorable nest for harmful bacteria to flourish.

It is also ideal if you can avoid intercourse until the doctor says your vagina are free from bacterial vaginosis to because those activities can bring harmful bacteria deeper in the vagina or transmit to your sex partner.

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar again can amaze us by its ability to treat bacterial vaginosis. Its natural acidic compound restores the pH balance in the vagina and makes it an inhabitable environment for harmful bacteria.

How to apply:

  • Prepare a warm tub of water that is added 3 cups of apple cider vinegar; soak yourself in the tub for 15 minutes.
  • Another good option is to simply wash your vagina with a mixture of ½ cup of apple cider vinegar and water. You will see improvement in no time.

Stress Isn’t Just Annoying, It’s Actually Dangerous!

Stress Isn’t Just Annoying, It’s Actually Dangerous!

27247021692_90a8a4d76e_zhttps://www.flickr.com/photos/anieto2k/27247021692

We all get stressed from time to time, that’s just a natural part of life. Between work, family life and trying to maintain a healthy social life, there are plenty of occasions when things start to pile on, and you need to take a break from it all. For the most part, the best thing to do is just step back and relax for a little bit. Try to forget the things that are causing you stress, rest, and recharge. But what happens when you’re not able to do that? What happens when stress goes from being a minor and occasional inconvenience to being a constant and persistent part of your life? Well, it turns out that too much stress isn’t just annoying or inconvenient, it can actually be downright dangerous! Here are a few ways that too much stress can actually cause problems for you, your life, and your body.

Adrenal fatigue

Your adrenal glands are the primary stress control center in your body. They are incredibly important for maintaining correct stress levels throughout your system. When put under too much strain through external stress such as depression, anger, sleep deprivation or infection, then your adrenal glands can actually stop functioning properly. This can lead to adrenal exhaustion. There are a lot of different symptoms of adrenal exhaustion but some of them include weight gain and respiratory problems.

Weakened immune system

There is a lot less attention paid to the relationship between the mind and the body than there should be. However there have been links found between stress levels and a weakened immune system. How many us have been in the position where we get sick right at the moment where we really needed not to. Perhaps there was a big presentation coming up at work, or you were getting ready to move house. These kinds of situations can be incredibly stressful and those stress levels in your system can often leave your body vulnerable.

Heart problems

Too much stress hormone in your system increases your heart rate and constricts your blood vessels. This means that your heart is under much more pressure and is forced to work a lot harder, leading increase blood pressure levels. Studies have also shown a clear link between stress levels and a person’s risk of suffering a heart attack.

Relationship difficulties

This might not relate to your body, but it is still a risk factor when it comes to the stress levels in your life. If you’re feeling very stressed and under a lot of pressure, that can very often lead to difficulty communicating in your relationship, as well as sometimes taking that stress out on the people closest to you. Large amounts of stress also make you more likely to overreact to minor inconveniences. This is what often leads to minor disagreements turn into heated screaming matches for seemingly no reason. People with increased levels of stress often find it much harder to come back down from that place and calm down as well. It’s important not to let the stress of life get in the way of a happy, healthy relationship.

Get Beauty Sleep Not Baby Sleep!

Get Beauty Sleep Not Baby Sleep!

adult-1850223_960_720Picture Source

Ask any new mom, and I’m sure they will tell you exactly what it is like to try and get a proper good night’s sleep when there is a new-born baby in the house. And they will all say that it is pretty much impossible! One thing is for certain when you are blessed with a baby you definitely won’t be blessed with sleep. But, you will be happy to hear that having a baby doesn’t necessarily mean giving up sleep for good. Here are some brilliant tips to help you turn that baby sleep into beauty sleep!

Lie Down

Even if you don’t feel tired, it is important to rest while your baby is having a nap or while someone else is occupying your child. Even if you don’t feel particularly tired, you will find that simply lying and relaxing for an hour or so can be very rejuvenating and restorative. It doesn’t matter if you don’t even feel like closing your eyes. You will feel the benefits that come with simply lying flat and taking all the strain off your feet.

Don’t Use Coffee

When you wake up very early after little sleep, you might want to brew up a large pot of coffee to help you get through the day. However, this can be very counterproductive indeed. Sure, all the caffeine in the coffee can help you stay wide awake when you need to, but it will also make it very difficult to fall asleep and nap when you are able to. So try not to use coffee or other caffeinated drinks to keep you going. Instead, stick to a natural alternative, such as herbal teas.

Create A Comfortable Sleep Environment

If your bedroom is a great sleep environment, you will find it much easier and quicker to nod off at night. So make sure your bed is super comfy and has the ideal pillows and mattress for your needs, which can be found at Best Beds Boutique and other bedding stores. Make sure there is nothing to distract you in your bedroom either, like TV and computer screens. You will also find that blackout blinds are a great way to sleep through light nights.

Pump Breast Milk

The main reason why new moms end up getting up through the night so often is that their baby needs feeding. Unfortunately, dads don’t produce their own breast milk, so it has to be the mom who always gets up. But there is a way around this, ladies! You just need to start pumping your own breast milk and storing it in sterilized bottles. That way, your partner can see to the nightly feeds while you get some quality shuteye for once!

No one said it was going to be easy raising a baby. And no one said that you would get through it with plenty of energy! But, hopefully, all of these great tips will help you get a few extra hours of sleep each night so that you feel a little more refreshed each day.

Easy Ways To Work Spirituality Into Your Modern Life

Easy Ways To Work Spirituality Into Your Modern Life

Among the hustle and bustle of everyday life, many of us struggle to fit in anything to do with spirituality. In fact, how many of us can honestly say that we have been in touch with our spiritual side ever before? A lot of people tie it very closely with religion, when in fact, you do not necessarily need to be religious in order to be spiritual. But why would you bother being spiritual at all? Well, modern life is very hectic, and especially for women, can be full of all sorts of pressures and sources of stress. Getting back in touch with your spiritual side can help to put our worries and stresses back into perspective – thus helping you to live a much richer, more fulfilling life. The plus side is that you don’t need to change your whole lifestyle either – the kinds of changes you make can be so minor that you will notice how easily they slip into your existing routine. If you are ready to get spiritual and to improve your quality of life, here’s how you can do so.

Be in the present

You might think that you are one of those people who ‘lives in the moment’. But do you find yourself constantly worrying about the future, or spending time dwelling on the past? If you answer yes to either of these things, then you probably don’t live in the present quite as much as you thought you did. Actually living in the present can be learnt through a technique called mindfulness, which has its roots in ancient Buddhist traditions. However, it has now expanded across the world and is practiced by people of all religions/no religion too.

Carry reminders with you

We all know how children carry comforters around with them to help soothe them when they are stressed out. Now, we are not recommended that you keep a blanket or a stuffed toy in your purse to get out the minute you find yourself in a stressful situation. But having a little reminder to stay grounded on your person every day can be great if it’s all getting a bit too much for you. For example, you might choose to carry a tigers eye mala, or maybe even a smooth gemstone you can hold or rub when you feel yourself getting anxious or worried. A simple act like this can easily bring you back into the present and offer you perspective on your current situation.

 

Try yoga

If you want to combine your new found spirituality with a way to keep fit, why not give yoga a try? Yoga is an ancient practice and comes in many forms, but the general basis for it is moving through a selection of poses while being aware of the breath in the body. This can be incredibly relaxing and you may also find that you start to tone up and gain muscle from the practice too. Yoga classes are run in studios all over the country, so you’ll easily find one near you.

Keep It Sleek: Hair Tips To Get You Through The Winter

Keep It Sleek: Hair Tips To Get You Through The Winter

We’ve all experienced the dreaded hat hair at some point through winter – that unattractive plastered-to-your-skull look at the roots, followed by a strange sort of puffiness in the hair that was exposed to the cold air. Here are some tips to help you get through the winter without resorting to the terrible hat hair…

Keep Your Hair Protected

woman-945442_960_720Image source

No, we don’t necessarily mean that you should wear a hat all the time – hat hair, remember? But you should try to keep your hair protected from the elements. If that entails a hat, that’s fine – but try to steer away from scratchy wool and go for fleece lined hats instead to keep your hair smooth. You could also consider putting up your hood or wrapping a soft scarf around your head instead of going for a hat.

Prepare For The Next Day At Night

Are you a morning shower’er? Are you prepared to change that? If your answer is yes to both questions, then look no further: your winter hair solutions are here waiting for you. If you wash your hair in the morning, then you probably use a hairdryer to dry it, meaning that your hair becomes dry and frizzy over time if you aren’t careful to use heat protecting sprays. If you wash it the night before, it’ll be much easier to dry it overnight without using heated products – and sleeping on a silk pillowcase will make it sleek and glossy. In addition, it’ll stop you going out with wet hair that might freeze and snap!

Splash Out On Quality Products

pexels-photo-54566Image source

Over the winter, a lot of the time your hair can look dull and lifeless – and something that could be contributing to that is the same old shampoo and conditioner that you’ve been using for absolutely ever. If your hair’s used to your hair products then it probably doesn’t respond as well to them as it used to, meaning that it’s time for a change. Look at the best natural hair products to cut out harmful chemicals from your everyday hair routine, and make sure that you choose the products to suit your hair type.

Keep Yourself Hydrated

Drinking water during the summer seems like second nature, but you need to ensure that you keep doing it through the winter months too – this will improve your skin and hair (and, if we’re honest, it will help your entire body to work better). If you don’t love the taste of water, go for a water filter or add some fruit for flavour. You should also make sure that you deep condition your hair once a week to reduce breakage and make it glossy and well-behaved.

Get A New Look

Finally, if you’ve been thinking about getting a new look for a while, why not go for it now? It’s harder to make big statements with your fashion over the winter, so you could do it with your hair instead – and having shorter hair will mean that you’ll have to do less to look after it. Not only that, but a new look will automatically make you feel beautiful and good about yourself.
