Do You Exercise Too Much?

Do You Exercise Too Much?

Exercise is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. It has a vast range of benefits from helping you to maintain a healthy weight, to boosting your immunity and fighting off disease. Regular exercise can improve your mental health, increase your circulation, improve your social life and mood, and help you to sleep. Your skin might be brighter following exercise, your muscles will be stronger, and your overall fitness will be improved. Even better, there’s no right way of doing it. Some people enjoy running, others hate it and would prefer to do an hour in the gym. Some people struggle to make time to exercise and so focus on YouTube workouts or fitting more walking into their day to day life. But, however you choose to exercise, have you ever considered that you might be doing too much?

Many people have the opposite problem, they find it hard to make the time to exercise, and they have trouble staying motivated long term. But, not everyone. Some of us are going to the gym too often, pushing ourselves too hard. Exercising too much could damage your heart, your muscles, your mind, and even leave you with a frightening exercise addiction. Too much exercise can mean that after sustaining an injury and seeking help from a personal injury lawyer, you struggle to get back to normal and fully recover. 

Do You Exercise Every Day?

Exercising every day can seem like a great idea. You’ll burn more calories and see faster results, right? Well, maybe. It really depends on what you are doing. If you are hitting the gym and working out at an intense level, you should have a day off between workouts to give your muscles the chance to repair and strengthen. If you don’t want to take entire days off, use rest days to practice yoga or go for a long walk.

Do You Ache All of the Time?

It’s normal for your muscles to ache after a tough workout, it’s good even. But, you shouldn’t feel like this all of the time. If you constantly hurt, even following days off, then you might be pushing yourself too hard. 

Have the Results Stopped Coming?

Have you reached the point where you are in the gym everyday but seeing no results? Has your progress plateaued? When this happens, it’s tempting to push harder, and add an extra workout. But, it’s often because your body has got used to the same routine. Instead of working out for longer, try something new. Change your routine, and you might find that you get better results even if you drop a workout or two. 

Are You Tired?

We all get tired sometimes, it usually just means that you are working hard and need a good night’s sleep. The tiredness that you get from exercising too much is a little different. If you feel like you are always tired like you can’t concentrate and even walking to the car is a considerable strain on your body, it’s time to cut down and give yourself a break.

How Life Can Change When You’re With Someone Right For You

How Life Can Change When You’re With Someone Right For You

It can be hard to find ‘the right person’ for you, and it can be hard to be the right person for someone else. When this happens, we know about it. It can feel like the world has somehow conspired to ensure the two of us meet, allowing us to bathe in enjoying one another’s company. However, after being in a bad relationship for some time, it can be hard to open yourself up to this, or think what it might look like.

Of course, first we should state that rushing into any relationship before you’ve had time to gather yourself and feel comfortable on your own is a bad idea. If you can’t love yourself, being with someone else is always something that leads to frustration. However, we hope to use this post to show you just what you stand to gain should you wait for the right person, and keep your standards high. After all, you are absolutely worth it. Here are some signs that might guide you in future:

They’re Your Best Friend

Friendship is actually a purer version of love than romantic love. Romantic love expects something of the other, it expects to be connected, it’s quite intense with those sentiments. But friendship simply wishes the other to be well, and is hardly as possessive as romance. This is why it can be a great idea to befriend the person beforehand, or know that even if you weren’t romantic together, you would be friends no matter what. When friendship comes easy, that’s an excellent sign that things could possibly work out.

You Feel Less Sure, But In A Good Way

It can often feel that when we’re single, everything is certain. We might not believe we were ever going to have kids, or that we would ever like to get married. But when you find someone right for you, you might start questioning those decisions. You’ll know when the power of this relationship can help you change your mind, because it will shock the old you. You might even consider tying the knot or considering a reversal vasectomy as a matter of principle, rather than anything else. In other words, the right relationship can often make you feel less sure in what you may have believed completely before, and as long as that’s completely consensual, that could be a good thing.

You Won’t Tread On Egg-Shells

Many relationships can often feel like you’re having to tread on egg-shells around certain topics. A sense of fear of offending the other can often take over, and once you kowtow too many times to this, it can be the standard in your relationship. When you meet the right person for you, this is no longer a regular occurence. In fact, it can be a sign of worry if things ever start to feel that way. Open and honest communication, not limitation, is likely to set the standard here.

With this advice, we hope you’re much better able to ensure you find Mr or Ms/Miss Right.

Top 5 Garage Organization Tips

Top 5 Garage Organization Tips

So your wife is yelling at you that there is no space in the garage to park her car? We have all been there. The US Department of Energy says that one-fourth of homeowners in the United States who have two-car garages don’t have space to park their cars in the garage.

Once things start piling up in the garage, sorting them and making space seems like a task, especially if you have to sacrifice your weekend doing so.

We have shared below 5 top garage organization tips to help you organize your garage better and create space in it.

1. Make a plan

If we go traveling somewhere, the first thing that we do is we make a plan. If we go shopping, we generally make a shopping list. Organizing your garage should get the same treatment. Make a plan. Create a list of the items that you have in your garage and how you want to organize it. Allocate different days in the month to tackle one small step or type of item at a time. This will help you to reduce overwhelm and get the task done easily.

2. Focus on increasing storage

There are many ways to increase the storage area of your garage. We try to fill up everything in the existing floor space. A simple way to increase the space in your garage is to use the walls. You can set up shelves, hooks, and panels around your wall so that you can easily store your things on the wall rather than on the floor. You can use this DIY overhead garage storage pulley system resource to create space on the walls and store your things.

3. Make an inventory

When you make an inventory of all the things that are there in your garage, you can organize them more efficiently. You can discard the things that you don’t want or need. You can store the things that you use rarely in an overhead storage system. You can hang things that you use frequently on your wall or the door. You can even have a garage sale of the things you don’t need and make some money.

4. Designate spaces for kids toys or bikes

Sometimes, the issue is not with your things but rather with the toys or bikes of your kids. Kids generally don’t keep things in place, especially if they are late for dinner after a bike ride. Designate a parking spot for your kid’s bikes. You can either use bike hooks or activity organizers to get the bikes off the floor and on the walls.

5. Space of shoes and coats

Shoes and coats bring in dirt and mud when you drive in or walk into your garage. It makes sense to keep a designated space to remove shoes or coats when you enter the garage. This makes the garage cleaner and easier to maintain. You can also consider buying a small and compact vacuum cleaner to quickly clean up any dirt.

Modifying Your Car

Modifying Your Car

https://pixabay.com/photos/car-repair-car-workshop-repair-shop-362150/

The whole motivation for tuning your car is to extract the best possible performance from it by adding, altering or completely replacing the parts fitted as standard by the factory. So what car tuning parts are available to achieve this aim? Read on to find out a little more about this addictive hobby.

The prime area where modifications can be made through the use of specialist aftermarket performance car parts is to the vehicle’s engine and management systems. Buy and fit an appropriate engine tuning box and you can expect to see significant gains in fuel efficiency, as well as overall increases in torque and brake horsepower. This device is relatively inexpensive and can be easily installed into your engine bay, usually plugging into the engine’s existing wiring structure. Alter the engine to increase its power output, though, and you may find that it’s desirable to make some other modifications to help you and your vehicle cope with the additional, improved performance that results. Of course, you need to choose the correct auto electrician for you if this is something you do not have experience in.

One set of car tuning parts you might want to invest in, for instance, is a suspension kit. By improving your car’s suspension, you’ll have the ability to drive your car that little bit faster without compromising on safety. With a lower ride height, and therefore, lower centre of gravity, for example, some car tuning parts can reduce the chances of body roll and increase the stability of the vehicle when cornering or travelling at speed. These are just two examples, and even within this area, there is plenty of choice available depending on your type of car and your goals for improving its performance.

New Or Second Hand?

Performance parts online are widely available to give your car a bit of an added oomph. Everyone loves a bargain, so it can be tempting to shop around at online auction houses for second-hand pieces. But are you really saving money or will this cost you more in the longer term?

If you are interested in improving the performance of your car, then to a large extent, it makes a lot more sense to buy new. Only this way can you be absolutely certain that you are getting good value for money and that the performance car parts you are buying will be both durable and give the improvement in results that you expect. Other factors to consider are the convenience and the availability of the parts you need. Because it’s vital that you buy parts that are actually compatible with your vehicle, then purchasing second hand can be labour intensive and fairly hit and miss too. It may take you ages to source the right used exhaust at the right price for your model of Audi, for example, whereas most new sellers will be able to supply off the shelf solutions for many makes and models. The other thing to be aware of is that some car performance parts should never be reused for simple health and safety reasons. These include brake pads and shoes, clutch discs, and shock absorbers, for example. It is essential that you buy these new every time.

The Dos And Don’ts Of Not Living With Your Kids

The Dos And Don’ts Of Not Living With Your Kids

Picture Credit

If you are now separated from your partner, you might find that it’s difficult to adjust to your new life. You might have had to find a new place to live, which could have proven to be very stressful on its own, but you might also now be living apart from your children. Some parents will find this a very upsetting situation to come to terms with, but it doesn’t always have to be bad. You will certainly be able to still see your children, and they might even be able to stay the weekends at yours.

To help you get used to living apart from your kids, here are some very useful dos and don’ts.

Do Know Your Rights

First of all, it might be necessary for you to know what your divorced father’s rights are. If you are a divorced mother who is living away from your kids, your rights will be very similar to those mentioned in the link. Unless you have shown some serious signs of neglect or of being a poor parent, then you will be allowed to see your kids on a regular basis. If you and your ex are still on good terms, you might want to agree to the kids spending so many nights at yours throughout the week. If you aren’t on good terms and your ex tries to keep you away from your kids, you should be within your legal rights to go to court and fight for better access.

Don’t Stop Paying Maintenance

You will be legally required to pay maintenance to your ex partner if the kids live with them for most of the time. In fact, even parents who don’t see their children are still obliged to pay for their maintenance. You must make sure that you make every payment on time otherwise you could end up being taken to court. If you do care for your children, though, I’m sure that you will be more than happy to pay this money to help support them.

Do Find A Support Network

If you do find that it is hard being separated from your kids for so long, you might find it really useful finding a support group. There are lots of these groups around the country that are made up of divorced or separated parents who no longer live with their kids. You will be able to offer each other help and advice. This is also a great way to meet some new friends who are in a similar situation to yourself.

Don’t Get Too Down About The Situation

It can be easy to start to feel very negative about your new life, but dwelling on this will  only make you feel much worse. Ideally, you should try to stay positive. At least you can be very happy about still being able to see your kids on a regular basis!

You will find that you adapt to this new life situation if you follow these dos and don’ts.

6 Reasons That Motorbikes Are Better Than Cars

6 Reasons That Motorbikes Are Better Than Cars

A lot of people hate the idea of riding a motorbike. They think that they’re just loud, dangerous things that only an idiot would ride. But if you asked somebody that owns one, they’d tell you that it’s amazing and they’ll never go back to owning a car again. Obviously, motorbikes aren’t ideal as a family vehicle so you shouldn’t swap out your car just yet. But there are actually a lot of great things about owning and riding a motorbike. Don’t write off the idea of getting a motorbike just yet, these are some of the reasons that they’re better than cars.

Cheaper To Run

The running costs of a car can be quite high, but if you switched to a motorbike, you can actually save yourself a lot of money. A bike needs about half the fuel that a car does to cover the same distance, so you’re spending less on petrol and you don’t have to go and fill up as often. That means that bikes are actually more environmentally friendly. Most people assume the opposite because they’re loud and fast, but the fuel consumption is so much lower. If you want to save the planet and save yourself a bit of money at the same time, a motorbike might be the best option for you.

Easier To Fix

Car breakdowns are a complete nightmare and mechanics charge a lot of money to fix it. If you take a bike to the mechanic, you’ll still be paying a lot for repairs but most of the time, you won’t need to. You can easily source your own parts from sites like solomotoparts.com and the engine is easily accessible. A lot of things like changing spark plugs or swapping the battery out that you’d pay a mechanic to do on a car, you can just do for yourself on your motorbike. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, you can fix most issues on a bike without having to pay anybody to do it.

It’s More Fun To Drive

There’s no denying this one. Some cars are great fun to drive, especially if you’ve got a convertible with the roof down. But that’s nothing compared to the sheer thrill of taking your motorbike down some winding roads through the countryside. You can get a lot more speed up and they’re great fun to handle. They are a lot more dangerous than a car which is why some people are against them, but for a lot of people, the increased danger is the thing that they love most about riding a bike.

Easier To Park

Let’s face it, parking is a bit of a pain. Even if you’re good at it, driving around a busy car park for ages to find a space is always annoying. But with a motorbike, you don’t have that problem. Not as many people drive them so the bike spaces in car parks are always likely to be free. It’s also really easy to slip them into any small spaces that you would never get a car into. While everybody else is struggling to find a place to park their big SUV, you can pull straight into a space and carry on with your day.

They’re Quicker

The speed of a motorcycle does bring a lot of risks with it, but there are some benefits. You’d never be able to find a car that can outperform a motorbike for the same price, that means you’re always getting more speed for your money. The basic function of any vehicle is to get you where you’re going. On a motorbike, you’re always going to arrive faster because you can drive a lot quicker and it’s easier to weave in and out of traffic and avoid traffic jams.

Sense Of Community

There are communities built around cars, especially amongst people that drive classic cars. But the motorbike community is far stronger than any car community out there. In pretty much any city that you go to, there will be a local biker group, and they’re not all scary thugs like you see in the movies. For most riders, owning a motorbike isn’t just about getting from A to B, it’s a hobby and they enjoy being part of that community. You can meet some great people if you own a motorbike and take it to gatherings and events on a regular basis.

It’s true that riding a motorbike can be dangerous but there are a lot of benefits that actually make them better than cars, so don’t write them off just yet.

Understanding Value

It helps if you understand how value works with a vehicle, as if you do you are much more likely to know where you stand. When it comes to buying, selling or just valuing, you need to know what you are doing, and it is thankfully easy enough to get your head around when you need to. Most of all, you need to know that all vehicles undergo a significant diminishing of their value over their lifetime. This means that the value is always going reduce over time, no matter what. The moment you drive it away after buying it, in fact, its value reduces by around a half to a third. Thankfully, there are ways to counteract this, the best being a diminished value claim. If you are wondering: What is a diminished value claim? You are not alone, as many people don’t know about them. It’s simply a way to claim money back off the difference between the starting value and the current value, and it’s something to remember you can do.

Driving Efficiently

The better that you can drive with efficiency, the less money you will be spending on fuel, so this too is a hugely important thing which you should look into at your earliest convenience. There are a lot of ways to make sure that you are driving efficiently. First of all, you should limit your braking, acceleration and stalling. All of this uses fuel where you don’t need to. You should also make sure that you change gears at the right time – usually around two and a half thousand revs – so that you can be sure that you are not wasting any fuel there either. Finally, if you can cruise most of the time at around fifty, you will use much less fuel on the whole.

Insurance & Other Peripherals


Finally, you also need to make sure that you are thinking about the things that come with driving if you are to keep driving as cheap as possible. When it comes to insurance, you should always shop around, as you will find that you can usually find a cheaper option if you look hard enough. For tax, the only thing you can do is buy a more efficient vehicle. Do these things, and you will mater the finances of driving easily.
