Five Tips When Driving To Avoid Car Damage

Five Tips When Driving To Avoid Car Damage

Being able to drive is a luxury that many of us have, and it certainly does make living a little easier, especially if we rely on commuting to and from work or needing a car to go on holiday or to see family. However, not everyone is as safe and careful when driving when they should be. Cars are expensive to purchase and to maintain or fix, so it’s worth considering these five tips when driving to avoid car damage.

Know Your Speed Limits

When it comes to your speed, it’s good to always be aware of the speed limits that are on the road. You may be fairly confident with regular routes, but it’s worth doing a bit of road research when traveling somewhere new. Check out the route you are taking beforehand and what the specific speed limits are for that road. 

Stay A Safe Distance Behind And In Front Of Cars

A lot of accidents are often caused by being too close to other cars and so when sudden brakes or turns happen that you don’t expect, the response time can often be too late. As a rule of thumb, ensure that you can still see the license plate of the car in front of you. If someone is driving too close to you from behind, then give way to ensure that they aren’t going to cause you any damage as a result of driving too close.

Store Your Car Under Shelter

Whether it’s a used Vauxhall Adam or a brand new Land Rover, you should always try to store your car under shelter. That goes for when you’re at home, i.e. a garage or parking in a public space. Public parking may be a little more difficult, but if there are any free spots that have shelter above it, then it’s worth choosing that as a place to park, rather than somewhere that’s out in the open. From a security viewpoint, it’s also beneficial to park within eyesight of a CCTV camera.

Be Aware Of Those Around You

As mentioned above, being wary of drivers is key. Not everyone is going to be as careful as a driver as you are, and accidents do happen. It is important, therefore, to be aware of everything going on around you. Keep an eye on your wing mirror and rear-view mirror at all times to make sure that you are doing everything you can to maintain a safe distance from other drivers. Look out for pedestrians who often have a bad habit of running across without the go-ahead of the traffic lights.

Take Away Any Distractions

And lastly, distractions within the car are a big no-no. Using your phone or getting distracted in other ways like changing the music station or having passengers in the car are all worth avoiding. 

Hopefully, with these tips, you can keep the risk of accidents or car damage to a minimum. Accidents do happen, but hopefully, most can be avoided with these precautions.

5 Ways To Get Self-Care Right

5 Ways To Get Self-Care Right

Self-care is something that we all need to think about, because looking after yourself is super important. If you don’t, you could find that you burn out, and you can’t do anything at all, so it’s totally worth it to give yourself a little break now and again. But how do you actually do this, and do you really have to go to a yoga class to feel like you’re looking after your mind and body?

Luckily, self-care comes in many different shapes and sizes, so you’re likely to find something that suits you. Here are 5 ideas to get the self-care newbie started.

#1: Switch off

If you’re going to take some time to recuperate from all of the stresses that life throws at you, then you need to switch off… like really switch off. It’s not enough to just chill out on the couch with your phone in your hand; you should try not to go on it for a few hours, and just do something that you really enjoy. If you’re still getting stressed out about emails, then you’re not chilling out enough!

#2: Look after your body

Another simple way to exercise some self-care is to look after your body, by drinking more water and having a healthy, balanced diet. Sure, treating yourself to something every now and again isn’t an issue, but getting your fruit and veggie intake nailed will make you feel on top of the world, so it’s worth giving your body some lovin’. Avoid smoking and alcohol if you can, as this will also help.

#3: Do what you love

Self-care looks different for so many people because we all enjoy different things. Whether you want to look for free spins slots and get your game face on, or you’d prefer to go for a long walk through nature, the important thing is to do what you really love. If you make time for this, you’ll soon find that you’re feeling a lot more fulfilled, so don’t just follow the self-care routes that others lay out!

#4: Have a candlelit bath

Look, we’re not saying that a hot, candlelit bath can fix everything. OK, we might be. Chilling out and really letting your muscles relax is a great form of self-care, and you’ll also come out of the other side feeling clean and comfortable. If you want to add a face mask in for good measure then this is certainly an idea that we can get behind, so get those candles lit, and find the bubble bath.

#5: Reconnect with loved ones

When the world around you seems like a stressful and confusing place, sometimes self-care looks like calling up a loved one. Whether you head out for dinner together or catch up over the phone, it’s just nice to know that the people that you care about are there, and that you can put the world to rights with them. We’d say that the warm, fuzzy ‘love’ feeling was self-care enough, don’t you think?

Enjoy nailing self-care, however you do it!

These Simple Habits Can Help You Look and Feel Younger

by Guest Blogger, Dana B.

Ever feel like you’re 35 going on 65? Feeling older than you actually are is usually a strong indicator that you need to change your lifestyle habits. Aside from the emotional impacts, feeling older can mean that your physical health is being affected by your everyday habits. Still, it can be tricky knowing which advice to follow when it comes to healthy aging, The best lifestyle changes to make are ones that are backed by research, like the ones below.

Eat More Gut Healthy Foods

Listening to your gut is crucial for important decisions, but it can also be important for healthy aging. According to Gaiam, there are several links between gut health and overall health, including inflammation and lowered immunity, but these changes can be easily reversed to promote healthier aging. While supplements and treating infections are helpful, you can also turn to gut healthy foods to restore the balance in your own internal microbiome. Most people already know that yogurt contains healthy bacteria, but it’s possible to boost gut health with garlic, almond milk, pickles and even dark chocolate. These vitamin-, probiotic- and prebiotic-rich foods either contain the same gut-healthy bacteria or helpful fiber, both of which can help maintain balance in your digestive system.

Find Ways to Maintain Hydration

You’ve heard it over and over again: Hydration is important. Although you may recognize this importance, you may not fully understand the benefits of hydration for your mind and body, especially when it comes to feeling older. For example, hydration can provide an energy boost, improve the appearance of skin, and even promote weight loss. So, you will look and feel younger, no matter your real age. Drinking all that water can be a challenge for many folks, though, which is why it’s useful to have some hydration tricks to make yourself drink more often. Pack a large water bottle in your bag before you head off to work, or add some fruit to your water, to make staying hydrated less daunting and something you start to look forward to each day.

Always Wear Sunscreen When Outside

When people who look and feel younger talk about their habits, they also tend to emphasize the importance of sunscreen use. That means wearing SPF any time you’re going to be out in the sun. Damaging UV rays—which can cause changes to skin appearance and skin cancer—are present whether you can see them or not, and seeing skin damage in the mirror can definitely make you feel older. The next time you’re going to be outside in the daytime, dermatologists recommend applying sunscreen that contains SPF 15 or 30; anything higher might actually provide false skin protection against the sun’s rays.

Stop Following Every Fad Diet

Maintaining a healthy weight can help you look and feel better. If you’re turning to fad diets to achieve that trim body, however, you may actually be risking your health. For instance, one fad diet claims that you can eat bentonite clay (volcanic ash) to help you lose weight, but according to Dr. Anton Emmanuel, gastroenterologist, you’re putting your digestive system, kidneys and heart at risk of failing. So if you want to change your diet, just focus on eating whole, nutritious meals that you can easily prepare at home or obtain from a delivery service if it’s in your budget.

If you Google “healthy aging,” you’re bound to be bombarded by a lot of wellness fads and complicated information. Really, though, looking and feeling younger just takes some simple changes to your basic everyday habits. So drink more water, wear sunscreen, and eat foods that will nourish your gut, your body and your overall health. Because those little, research-backed habits really can help you age better and feel younger.

How To Save Money On Home Appliances

How To Save Money On Home Appliances

Image Source. Licensed under Creative Commons. 

A lot of us overspend on home appliances. This can include the initial purchase price, as well as running costs such as maintenance and energy bills. To help save you money, here are just a few tricks that could have you spending less on your home appliances.

Shop the sales

Many appliance stores have regular sales on. These can be great times to grab bargains on appliances. The January sales is a popular time for massive appliance discounts – because few people have much money after Christmas, retailers often have to offer much better deals to attract customers in.

Read reviews

Online consumer reviews can often tell if an appliance is reliable. Unfortunately, many of the cheapest appliances are less reliable, which can lead to frequent and expensive repair costs in the future. Save yourself money in the long run by reading reviews and only choosing an appliance that has good customer feedback.

Consider the energy rating

Most appliances come with an energy rating from A to G. Appliances that are graded A are the most efficient and are the ones that will save you huge amounts on your energy bills. It’s worth noting that fridge freezers can go all the way up to A+++ – if you’re buying this type of appliance you may not want to settle for an A.

Look out for online freebies

There are many sellers online giving away free appliances on sites like Gumtree. Whilst these appliances tend to be older (and therefore less reliable and less energy efficient), the fact that you’re paying nothing for them up front means that you’ll still likely save yourself money compared to buying a brand new appliance. A condition of these freebies is that you usually have to pick them up yourself from the seller – this means having a vehicle big enough to pick up the appliance.

Know when to repair, when to replace

When an appliance breaks, you need to weigh up whether it’s cheaper to repair or replace. Some repairs can be so costly that you may as well as buy a replacement. You should also consider the appliance’s lifespan.  It may be worth splashing out on central vacuum repair on a home vacuum system that’s only been installed 10 years ago (these systems can last 20 years), however it may not be worth getting a dishwasher repaired that’s 10 years old (these appliances usually only last 9 years).

Don’t extend your warranty

A lot of appliances will come with a year’s warranty. After this period, the seller may try to tempt you into paying for an extended warranty. These are rarely worth paying – whilst it does mean that your appliance will be repaired for free, the overall monthly warranty payments are likely to come to a much higher cost than were you to pay to get it repaired. Few warranties also cover the full amount of repairs.

Use your appliances less

You may also be able to save money on your appliances simply by using them less. Consider measures such as only washing full loads instead of half loads in your washing machine or letting frozen foods defrost before cooking them so that you use the oven for reduced periods.

The Best Ways to Obtain Unshakable Confidence

The Best Ways to Obtain Unshakable Confidence

Confidence is something that every woman wants, every woman deserves and that absolutely every woman should have. Getting hold of and especially keeping confidence nowadays can be quite a challenge. 

So, today we are going to be looking at some simple, yet effective ways to build, boost and maintain confidence.

https://www.pexels.com/photo/beach-woman-sunrise-silhouette-40192/

Take A Walk 

We will start with the most simple, yet one of the most effective of things. Simply taking a little bit of a walk. Walking not only has a certain amount of health benefits, but the psychological benefits are also many. As walking reduce, stress, anxiety, and fatigue, you know the confidence is going to take a great big boost all on its own. You can also use your walk to assert more confidence in daily life, a high chin, sway in the shoulders and a smile can make you not only feel more confident but you will seem more confident to the outside world.

Exercise Can Put You On Top Of The World

You don’t have to want to lose weight or get fit to go to the gym, just going alone, can instantly give you a huge boost in confidence. Once we start to enjoy the gym and then we see changes in our body, our whole demeanor changes, we become more confident without even knowing it. If the gym isn’t for you, pilates and yoga have been a choice of many for the boosting of confidence and wellbeing.

How Does Your Wardrobe Make You Feel?

For many of us, how we look will often determine how we feel. So my advice to you is, get out and get shopping or even get online. Dress for the person you want to be. Whether you love hats and want one for every day of the week or whether you take some inspiration from this women’s lingerie producer. Finding what you want and wearing what makes you feel confident and amazing is key.

One, Two, Three.. Open your eyes

I think you know where I am going with this final one. Yes, hypnotherapy. Some people will tell you that it did wonders for them, the new use of hypnotherapy is boosted self-confidence. The therapy works exactly as with the traditional methods. It just involves placing the patient into a trance and gradually training the mind to see something different. Hopefully, in this case, you. 

You Are What You Eat

Confidence can stem from many places and what we eat is one of those places. A good diet  promotes healthy self-esteem along with feeling more energetic and all-around happier. We are all guilty of a little junk food, followed by extreme lethargy. It’s not a call to diet, don’t worry. Even something as small as a 70% great food to 30% junk food is a step in a positive direction and you will see the results in no time.

So there we have it, a sure-fire way to help you along the way into finding your true confidence. Putting these into action is a great stepping stone to a more strong and confident you.

Three Top Tips To Help You Move House Like A Ninja

Three Top Tips To Help You Move House Like A Ninja

It’s one of the largest and most stressful undertakings many of us will have in our lives – and if you’ve decided that you can’t learn to love your current home, or improve it through building work, then moving house is the only option left to you. The process is full of challenges – from first finding a new home to love, to getting an offer accepted, dealing with conveyancing solicitors and negotiating the particulars of the sale with the vendor. And when all of that is safely out the way? You still have the upheaval of the move itself. Luckily, there are some tips and tricks which can make moving house a lot easier – some which you may not have known, especially if it’s your first time pulling off a house move.

But First, Declutter

If you’ve ever had ambitions to do a complete KonMari Method declutter on your life, then now is most definitely the time. Weeks ahead of the move, start tackling the process of getting rid of everything you no longer need, want or use in your life. Even those of us who consider themselves fairly minimalist are generally shocked at the amount of possessions they actually own when all of them have to be wrapped up and packed for a house move. The less you own, the less there is to pack – which frees up your time, money and precious headspace. It’s time to get ruthless. Approach your decluttering systematically, Rather than leaping in haphazardly or trying to do it all at once, tackle areas in sequence. Start with somewhere relatively streamlined and easy to get your momentum up, before moving on to traditional clutter hot spots such as your wardrobe or that junk cupboard under the stairs.

Make Special Arrangements For Valuables

People who have moved house a few times generally have some horror stories about priceless heirlooms or irreplaceable sentimental items getting lost or damaged in the rush. It’s much better to pull a separate box or bag together containing these items, and either give it to a friend or relative for safekeeping during the move, or ensure that it travels with you personally (rather than in a moving van) on the day. Think about other special arrangements you may need to make – are there pets that would be better off staying with someone for a weekend while you get moved in? Do you need to book a specialist mover such as CTI Logistics Interstate to get your vehicles moved to your new home? Don’t leave anything to chance – developing a plan and a schedule for moving house will combat any last minute panics that end up costing a lot of stress and extra money to sort out at short notice.

Flatpack What You Can Ahead Of Time

Dismantling things is a more time-consuming process than you may assume. You might picture yourself spending half an hour with an allen key, but the reality is that dismantling furniture takes time, so allow for it by starting early. Work out what temporary arrangements you can make work –  could you use a blow up air mattress for a week so the bedframe can be taken apart? Could your clothes be pre-packed into suitcases so you can take down a wardrobe? Doing it gradually is much less stressful that trying to pack down when you have a bunch of paid-hourly removals staff waiting around and a new occupant ready to move into your old house.

Think Your Home Is Too Messy To Clear Out? Think Again!

Think Your Home Is Too Messy To Clear Out? Think Again!

We all have a messy home, in some form or another. We have piles of clutter here and there, and we like to straighten them out day by day, but come bed time, they’ll be a complete mess all over again! We try to make changes where we can, such as the room atmosphere or finding new ways to arrange the attic for more boxes, but there always comes a time when we simply run out of room. 


And yet, if you’re someone who wants to have a clear out, but you don’t think it’s quite such a practical move at the moment, think again. There’s plenty of methods you can employ to tidy up a home that’s one mess after another, and there’s always ways to get rid of the clutter at the back of your cupboards, so you can use them as a storage solution once again! 

(Source)

Make a Schedule to Follow

First of all, make a plan. If you’ve going to be tackling the mess in your home from top to bottom, you can’t rush in without a bit of foresight. You need to sit down beforehand and work out how long it’s going to take, and what would be the easiest to start with. All in all, you need to make yourself a clear out schedule, to keep your dreams of clean living a practical reality. 

Start with the top floor, and then work your way down – this way you won’t dirty the areas you’ve already cleared out and wiped down. Usually the attic is best to start with, to make sure you’ve got plenty of room to store the clutter you want to keep, and then tackle the master bedroom before you hit the bathroom. 

When you get downstairs again, make sure you start in the kitchen! The living room can always come last, seeing as you’ll still require use of it during the day, and you’ll need all of your furniture still in place. 

Rope in Some Help

If you’ve got a big house, and an even bigger amount of mess, don’t venture in alone. Get your friends and family to help out – give them a copy of the schedule, run them through some general rules (so you don’t waste your time supervising!), and then everyone can get on with it. 

Get Yourself a Bigger Bin!

And finally, if you’ve got just too many black bags on your hands than you’re capable of moving and trashing yourself, invest in a bigger bin! And no, that doesn’t just mean you should buy a 45L bin to replace your 30L one… 

Instead, look into something like a skip bin hire. These companies will provide the skip as and when you need it, and when it’s filled to the brim with all of your waste, they’ll take it all away again. It’s quite useful when it comes to clearing out the modern home!

Don’t despair; you can clear out any home if you remember tips like these.

How To Fall In Love With Your Home All Over Again

How To Fall In Love With Your Home All Over Again

(image)

Remember the days when you loved your home? 

There was no greater feeling than walking through your front door after a long day at work, as you entered the place that was your cozy haven away from the outside world.

But as time moved on, your love for your home might have started to melt away. Stepping through your front door, your feelings might be less positive than they used to be once upon a time. Why? It could be one of any number of reasons, and if you don’t do something about them, then your frustration and dislike for your home are only going to grow stronger.

Are you relating to what we are saying? If so, here are some of the ways in which you can fall in love with your home all over again.

Give your home a facelift

Is the outside of your home looking dull and shabby? Perhaps it’s time to do landscape your garden or wash and paint your walls. Are your doors and windows in need of repair? Or perhaps they’re a little on the dated side. If so, make the necessary fixes, or contact companies such as Facelift for Homes to replace them with something new and appealing. 

Is the inside of your home a little on the ugly side? If so, you might want to consider giving it a makeover. By following some of today’s interior design trends, you might soon have a home worth spending time in again. Of course, you could always go your own way instead of following the norm, so if there are any particular colours or designs that you favour, no matter what your neighbours and friends think, then makeover your home as you see fit.

Add something new

You don’t have to spend a fortune when giving your home a makeover. Sometimes, one or two new items can make all the difference when trying to improve our mood at home. Why not treat yourself to a work of art, for example, and hang it in the room where you spend most of your time. Or how about a vase of flowers? It’s only a small addition, but being both aesthetically and fragrantly pleasing, you are bound to feel uplifted. And there are other things you could add to give your mood and home an uplift. A new rug, a throw for your chair, something to entertain you? Think about what you might enjoy and shop around accordingly.

Create more room

Are you struggling for space? A cramped environment can compromise the way we feel about our homes and can cause us to feel stressed and low. If you identify with this, there are at least two things you could do.

You might want to declutter your home. We aren’t only talking about any household mess, as you might have more furniture and knickknacks than you know what to do with. Get rid of anything that is unimportant to you, be that through donating or selling your unwanted items, as this will give you more space to play with. Where your furniture is concerned, you might want to replace particular items with something smaller, so you have more room to move around in your home. 

Alternatively, you might want to consider a home extension. With another room to spend time in, you will have the space to do something that you weren’t able to do before. You might create a social area for friends and family, for example, or you might want to create an area that is set up for your hobbies. Contact the relevant building professionals if this is something that interests you, as you might then find opportunities to enjoy your home again. 

And so…

Your home should be your haven; your sanctuary away from the strains and stresses of the outside world. But if you haven’t been ‘feeling it’ recently, then perhaps our suggestions will restore the love that you once had for your home. 

Let us know your thoughts.

Improving Your Home’s Air Quality

Improving Your Home’s Air Quality

Photo Source

Air pollution is on the rise in general. But have you considered the air quality in your home in particular? So many of us automatically associate air pollution with being outdoors in busy city centres or major cities around the world. But the air in your home isn’t necessarily much different. While you can’t control air quality in the wider world, your home is one place you have a little more control over – and you can take measures to ensure you can breathe easy in the space you where sleep, eat, and generally relax in!

Dust

We produce dust in our homes on a day to day basis. It’s essentially an accumulation of skin cells, hair, and other bits and bobs that are dropped on the floor. But while it may seem settled on surfaces, it’s also present in the air. Don’t breathe it in – instead, dust, sweep, and vacuum regularly to collect up as much of it as possible.

Tackling Mold

Mold can spread through your home for a variety of reasons – damp being one of the most common. It can be easy to ignore if it’s isolated to places where it’s out of sight. But mold is much more than an eye sore. It’s unhealthy too. Spores spread in the air and can actually make you sick when you breathe them in. So, if you have mold in your home, don’t procrastinate. Contact specialists like Environix, who will be able to tackle and remove mold from your property professionally and safely.

Investing in Houseplants

Houseplants are said to be nature’s life support system. They naturally draw impurities from the air surrounding them and photosynthesise carbon dioxide into oxygen in order to survive. They’re the inspiration for air filters – and what’s better than the original, authentic deal? If you do invest in houseplants, be sure to do your research and only invest in plants that are appropriate for your home in particular. Many plants are poisonous or toxic if consumed, so if you have kids or pets, are generally better avoided.

Try Out Salt Lamps

Chances are you’ve already heard about Himalayan Salt Lamps or seen them about. They’re attractive lamps, carved from blocks of salt with a bulb inside. But did you know they’re supposed to be great for air quality in your home as well as being aesthetically pleasing? Experts claim that when the salt in the lamp is heated by the energy emitted from the bulb, it draws in water from the air. This water contains all sorts of bacteria and dirt, meaning the lamp draws in bacteria that you would otherwise be breathing in.

These are just a few different options you might want to look into and try out if you’re planning on improving air quality within your home. They can make a drastic difference, so they’re all worth giving a try!

Crane Hire For Home Projects

Crane Hire For Home Projects

More and more companies are opting to hire a crane rather than buy one. There are many reasons why this is the case. The most obvious reason is the fact that it is a lot cheaper and businesses obviously want to keep their costs as low as possible. 

https://www.pexels.com/photo/blue-sky-construction-crane-equipment-533227/

However, it is not just businesses who require crane hire. There are a lot of homeowners and DIY enthusiasts around the country who need to hire a crane for projects that they are carrying out. After all, not all cranes are like those huge massive cranes that you see on building sites. You also have small crawler cranes and self-erecting cranes, which are designed for very small spaces and indoor use. Tools like this can make your DIY projects a lot easier and safer too, so long as you choose the right crane for the job. 

Nevertheless, in order to benefit from all of the gains associated with crane hire you need to make sure you choose the best company for the job in your area. Read on to discover what you should be looking for when seeking crane hire… 

Crane selection

The first thing you need to do is have a look at the range of cranes the company has on offer. Different cranes are suited to different tasks. If you were going to use the same piece of machinery for every task then you would be better off buying a crane. A good company will have everything from mini crawlers to tower cranes. They will be able to provide you with the best piece of machinery in order to deal with the task you are looking to complete. No demand is too big; whether you are working indoors or in an enclosed area. It is unlikely you are going to want a tower crane for a home project. However, the company is likely to serve the industrial and commercial markets as well. A website like Franna Crane Hire can give you a good idea regarding what you should expect when it comes to a crane hire company and the different options they have available. 

Experience

It is always recommended to go for a crane hire company with experience to boast. You need to be safe in the knowledge that they have provided their service successfully many times before. They have spent the years gaining their experience, they have perfected their craft and they know what makes their customers happy. If you go for a business that has only been hiring out cranes for a couple of years then you leave yourself at risk of being somewhat of a practise project. Furthermore, it is very unlikely that a new business will have a good selection of cranes. 

Health and safety 

You need to make sure the company upholds their responsibility to provide optimum levels of health and safety. They should carry out stringent tests on all of their equipment. It is the company’s responsibility – not yours – to make sure that everything is working safely and effectively at all time. A good crane hire company will highlight this on their website for all to see. 

Price quote

Last but not least, you should be given full knowledge of hire price before agreeing to hire a crane. You need to make sure you are covered and that there will be no hidden costs entailed. Nevertheless, you also need to be mindful of how much you pay too. Everyone wants a bargain, however going for the cheapest hire price you find is not recommended. This could indicate a significant lack of quality and that’s not what you want when hiring such an important piece of machinery.

If you take into account the four points mentioned in this article and you consider them carefully you will be able to find the best crane hire company for you. Remember; crane selection, price, experience and health and safety are all determining factors. Don’t be afraid to ask the company for a bit of advice too if you are feeling unsure regarding what sort of crane is going to be right for the specific home project that you are carrying out.
