Trying for a Baby? Do These Things First


Image source

If you’ve decided that the circumstances are now right for you to revel in the delights of parenthood and you’re poised to start trying for a baby any time now, just wait a second, take a step back and think about what you can do to increase your chances of a fast, healthy pregnancy. There are a few things that, if you do them before you start trying, will make the whole process of conceiving, carrying and giving birth to your little bundle of a joy, a whole lot easier. Check them out now:

Organize a Preconception Visit

Obviously, if you want to get pregnant, you can just start trying for a baby, but it’s never a bad idea to dot all of the I’s and cross all the T’s first so that you can start trying from the best possible position, so to speak. As such, it’s never a bad idea to schedule a preconception visit with a fertility expert like the one at marcsklar.com. By doing this, you can have yourself, and your partner’s physical health checked out, identify anything that could make getting pregnant harder and ensure that any medications or supplements you’re currently taking aren’t likely to interfere with your efforts to conceive.

Think About Genetic Screening

You might also want to think about having a genetic carrier screening carried out. This will flag up whether you or your partner are carriers for any serious illnesses like cystic fibrosis, which can be inherited so that you can make an informed decision and prepare yourself for any possible issues.

Start Taking Folic Acid

Many women start taking folic acid as soon as they find out they are pregnant because it is known to protect against birth defects like spina bifida, but it is actually a very good idea to start taking folic acid as soon as you decide you would like to try for a baby, because it will build  up and offer an increased level of protection from the second you conceive.

Give Up Your Vices

If you currently drink often, smoke regularly or take drugs, it is vital that you start kicking the habits now before you start trying for a baby. Numerous studies have shown that smoking and taking drugs can result in low birth weights, miscarriages and other birth defects, as can drinking to excess while pregnant. Although you might think that you’ll be able to give up once you find out you’re pregnant, it isn’t always so easy, especially if you’re addicted to a substance, which is why you should make serious efforts to quit now before you have a little life inside of you to worry about.

Lose Weight

If you’re overweight, and especially if you’re obese, losing weight,  you can see at webmd.com/, will make it a lot easier for you to conceive more quickly and it will also help to protect you from things like miscarriage and gestational diabetes if you do get pregnant.

You might want to jump in and start trying for a baby right this second, but it really is better to wait a while, start improving your health and then try if you want to have a healthy pregnancy. At least, do the things on this list before you start to seriously try and conceive!

Baby’s Starting School! Careers For Moms At A Loose End

It feels like you’ve blinked and opened your eyes to a very grown-up little boy or girl. And if they wear a uniform to their school, it can seem even more shocking to see your baby ready to take on the world! Starting school is such an enormous milestone – perhaps more for mom! So what are you going to do once you see them into their new classroom? Here comes the culture shock…

The house now stays tidy for six hours a day, and there is nobody home but you. You might spend the first week (or day) enjoying being a lady of leisure. Unfortunately, boredom soon sets in. Six hours is a long time not to be doing something productive. So why not consider a new career?

Most moms like the idea of taking their little ones to school and picking them up as well. That usually puts any full-time work out of the picture. Part-time work is rarely fulfilling or mentally stimulating, and the pay can be very poor. If it’s a career you’re looking for, you might find more interest in working for yourself. Many moms juggle babies and toddlers with personal projects that gradually build up the pace to become a fully fledged business. There is nothing stopping you getting started now, with the advantage of six hours of peace and quiet to help you. So what are your options?

Fitness Instructor

Having kids takes a toll on your body. If you’ve managed to take care of yours, you might be just the sort of inspiration other moms need to help them. You can achieve your prenatal fitness certification when you sign up for a course like Moms Into Fitness. This gives you a rounded education and training to help women stay fit and healthy during conception and pregnancy. You’ve done it all before, so you can help alleviate those birthing fears. You can even support moms after birth to get their pre-pregnancy shape back.

Taking on a career like this requires patience and great communication skills. You need to be the type of person that people find easy to talk to. There are obviously many embarrassing topics to cover, so sensitivity and discretion are essential. If you love taking care of people and find giving advice to be a natural path for you, then this could become the perfect career. It’s really easy to fit around school hours, and you can even do it from home with the right insurances and licenses. Perfect!

Alternative Therapies

If you’ve ever explored alternative therapies as a way to improve health and stay well, then why not explore ways to become a qualified therapist? There are so many different areas you can cover, but you might already have your preferences. Pain and mental health are the biggest problems many of us suffer from time to time. Medical assistance can be slow, and it can be costly. In the meantime, it makes sense to seek out self-help or alternative therapies that can address the cause, not just the symptoms.

 

Image credit

Medicine too often targets symptoms when a holistic approach looks at the reasons why the body is reacting the way it is. If you believe alternative therapies could benefit certain conditions, why not become a certificated therapist? You might convert your garage or dining room into a private practice. You could even rent space in a nearby clinic. Again, you’re in charge of appointment times, and you can manage the business yourself. Ideal!

Write A Book

If you’re a creative soul, then why not pen your first novel? Even if you’ve never written before, it’s not too late to put your fingers to the keys and start typing a story. Some authors just keep typing until they feel the story is over. Others meticulously outline the plot. They create entire life backstories for the characters and choose poetic language to tell the story. It doesn’t matter what kind of author you might become. And whatever ends up on the page can always be refined and edited later.

 

Image credit

If you’ve got a great story idea, or even a rehashed one, give writing a go. You can even self-publish when it’s all done thanks to services like Kindle Direct Publishing. If you fancy printing it or turning it into an audio book, there are cheap opportunities to do that for yourself too. But until you get to the keyboard, you can’t do any of these things! Follow famous authors on Twitter, read a couple of books, and see where your imagination takes you.

Private Tutor

There are plenty of ways to become a trainer or educator. Decide whether you like to tutor people in person. Then you might choose between individual tuition or group teaching. Next, pick your topic of interest or specialism. If you’re a fast learner, you might be able to become a competent teacher in several subjects or areas. Finally, decide on the course title. Now you have plenty to get you started, here is how to structure a course of education:

 

Image credit

The title will determine the overall objective of the course. It tells participants what they will learn about. To get to that point, you need to take them on a journey of learning. This starts with what you can assume they already know. Then it moves step by step from the known to the unknown. Solidify and confirm that step of learning before you move from that to the next unknown concept. Choosing an order of activities and tasks should help you determine each of the steps needed to get to the overall objective of the course.

Breaking down a scheme of work for teaching a subject is just the beginning of your teaching activity. You also need to develop tests, activities, and coursework to help participants solidify their learning. Try not to knowledge dump. Instead, take your time to impart the key facts with interesting techniques. This maintains motivation and engagement. Teaching is a practice. Try writing a Udemy course, or offering private tuition using Skype. Perfect for choosing your own hours and pay rate.

Life Coach

If you’ve dug yourself out of a few holes in the past, then chances are you’ve got self-motivation that others will look up to. And if you’re pretty good at scheduling and getting organized, then you might be the perfect person to offer their services as a life coach. Life coaches help people that feel they’re stuck in a rut or under-achieving. There are many areas in life where people can feel disappointed with their lot. They include:

Personal Fitness

Personal Health

Career

Relationships

Home

Personal Satisfaction and Happiness

Sometimes a client may come to you without being fully aware of why they feel quite so stuck. It is your job to unravel the key issues and help them find a structured and productive lifestyle that satisfies them. This could include a mixture of talk and activities with your client. You might provide a number of eBooks or handouts to help them clarify their thoughts, goals, and ambitions. This can be quite a hands-on job, but, again, you can choose your own hours.

 

Image credit

You might go jogging each morning with one client. Then in the afternoon, you might be organizing another client’s wardrobe or storage unit. The next one might need some self-confidence coaching. And another might look to you to help them develop their career. This could be one of the most varied jobs you ever did, but it can also be one of the most rewarding.

Online Business Ideas

Now you have some quiet time in the house, you might be keen to explore some of the opportunities you could pursue online. The choices are endless, but most moms like the idea of blogging. It gives you a platform to vent, create, advise, and explore different ideas about any topic you like. You should have good writing skills and be quite handy with a camera. Blogs take a while to become established and popular enough to monetize, but there is always earnings potential there.

 

Image credit

If you like the idea of owning your own store, but you don’t have a lot of capital to set up in the mall, why not have an online store? The easiest way to get set up is to use a drop shipper service. This means goods are shipped by a warehouse business on your behalf, so you don’t need stock at home. They often give you a white label website with current stock levels so you could have a ready-made store with a click of a button!

There’s no need to sit around at home waiting for the clock to go round. Many moms start their own businesses or forge careers in those few short hours their kids are at school. There are many options and many remarkable women you can follow for more advice. Which of these career options might you choose? Have you made a move back to working life?

The Three P’s Of Getting Into Fitness


Image

Getting into a healthy fitness routine can be tricky, but the payoffs are worth it. Staying healthy is something you need to do for yourself. Getting into fitness isn’t something that you can only do if you’re in your 20s, or that you can only do if you can afford a personal trainer at the gym, or have time to workout for three hours every day. It doesn’t work like that – there is no particular time in your life where you shouldn’t be working on your fitness, the earlier you start, the better your health will be, but getting into a good routine is just as important later in life too.

But being fit and healthy doesn’t happen overnight with minimal effort. One rep of sit-ups won’t give you a six-pack, here are the three Ps to getting into fitness

Patience

You need to dedicate time to get healthy. You will need to find some time in your busy life to workout, whether it’s a 20 minute home gym session or a half-hour run. Find the time and book it in like an appointment that can’t be missed. You have to wait for your body to get where you want it to be, but remember that it will get there and the journey is just as important as the goal.

You may get setbacks through illness or injury, but don’t rush into getting back to it too soon. If you need to take some time and a step back, then do so. You need to listen to your body, learn it’s limitation and work with it, not against it, to get to the new healthy you.

Perseverance

It will seem hard and impossible at times, but you can do it. The pain you feel is your body tearing to remake itself stronger. It sounds brutal, but the more you do it, the easier it gets. And the flood of endorphins exercise gives you helps to wipe out that pain.

You might find one of the hardest things is staying away from temptation with your food. Working out isn’t enough you need to eat the right things, and that does mean cutting out a lot of your favorite foods, and eating stuff, you’re not that fond of. However, you do get used to it. Feeding your body the right stuff eventually stops it craving the bad stuff. And after a while, treating yourself to a greasy burger will make you feel ill rather than satisfied.

Protein

Your biggest food-friend when getting fit is protein. You need to eat a balanced diet, but if you are geared towards building muscle, that scale does tip towards protein. This doesn’t just mean throwing a steak onto your salad – you need to mix up the meat. Red meat in large quantities isn’t great for you, so mix it up with chicken and fish. Salmon is high in Omega 3 which is one of the more vital vitamins your body needs. You can also use things like nuts for a non-meat option. Things like Sportsfuel supplements are a great way of getting that extra protein without upping your meat intake. You can get a one-a-day shake, or ones that you take before and after your workout.

Should You Eat Back Your Exercise Calories?


Pexels

When you exercise, you burn calories. That’s a pretty well known fact. If you’re trying to lose weight, then you’ll be familiar with this simple exchange: if you use more calories than you eat, then weight loss will swiftly follow. By increasing your exercise, you’re using even more calories, increasing your chances of successful weight loss. It’s fairly basic biological fact.

However, there is one question that anyone who is exercising and trying to lose weight needs to ponder: should you “eat back” your exercise calories?

“What does that mean?” you may be wondering. Well, it’s pretty simple.

If you’ve exercised, then you can input the exercise you have done into a calorie burn calculator. This will show you just how many calories your exercise has burned. Let’s say you’ve done a half hour of situps and toning work, burning around 150 calories (though the amount does vary depending on your weight).

Now, if you follow the weight loss exchange, that means you could technically eat 150 calories and still lose weight. You’re eating back the calories that you’ve burned off through the exercise. A lot of people treat exercise calories as earned calories; i.e. “I’ve jogged for an hour so now I can afford to have a creamy milkshake!”

What’s so wrong with that?

Nothing, in principle. Provided you’re still eating at a calorie deficit for the day — anything beneath 2,000 calories if a deficit for most people — then you can eat back your calories and still lose weight.

However… if you don’t eat back those calories, then you potentially stand to lose even more weight. Your exercise will be even more beneficial.

So it’s bad to eat back your calories?

It’s not as clear cut as that.

The simple fact is that if you have been exercising hard, you’re going to need to eat after exercising. You will have used energy and electrolytes to exercise; if you’ve exercised hard, then it’s important to consult a what to eat after a workout guide to find the right foods to eat to help rebalance your system. Do this in addition to your regular planned meals, using some of the “earned” calories to help replenish what has been lost by exercising. In fact, if you exercise and then don’t eat, you might find yourself feeling unwell.

However, it’s worth questioning whether or not you should eat back all of the calories that you expended. If your focus is on losing weight, then the bigger your calorie deficit, the better.

So… eat back a percentage of the earned calories?

This might be the best choice. It ensures you’re going to get enough nutrients to stave off hunger, while still allowing you to reap a weight loss benefit from the exercise that you’ve done. Allow yourself to eat back 50 percent of the calories you have used while exercising; this ensures you can have a treat, get your body nourished, but still see the benefit the next time you weigh yourself.

4 Home Remedies for Damaged Hair

Our hair can go through a lot in a lifetime. Perhaps you’ve dyed it too many times or you suffer from frizz in humidity. During the colder months, hair tends to become dry and the wind can cause damage to the ends. If you’re sick of trying to manage your damaged hair, you may be thinking about going out and buying an expensive treatment. But, can you really afford to spend that much money on something that may not work? Why not test out these home remedies instead? You may have everything you need in your kitchen cupboards!

Avocado Treatment

Avocado is a soft fruit, rich in the vitamins and nutrients needed for skin and hair repair. All you need is one avocado and one egg. Remove the outer layer of the avocado and throw away the pip. Mash up the remains and add one egg. Mix thoroughly until you’re left with a with a soft and gooey consistency. Apply to wet hair and leave in for 20 minutes. Once the time is up, wash your hair as you normally would. Your locks should feel softer and thicker after a few treatments.

Olive Oil

Most people have olive oil sitting in their cupboards, and if you do too, it could save you a fortune on expensive hair treatments. Take half a cup of olive oil and massage it through your hair, being careful to apply plenty to the roots and tips. Cover your hair in plastic and wrap a towel around your head. This is to keep the heat in and allow the oil to work through your hair. Leave on for 45 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. Shampoo and condition your hair once the oil is removed.

Apple Cider Vinegar Mask

If you suffer from common hair fall problems, like dandruff, this could be the ideal treatment for you. You’ll need one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, two tablespoons of olive oil and you’ll need to separate three egg whites. Mix together thoroughly and apply to your hair evenly. Cover your hair in plastic (use a shower cap if you have one) and wait for 30 minutes. Rinse off and shampoo. After a few treatments you should see the bounce return to your hair.

Tea Treatment

Did you know that tea can bring your hair’s shine back, as well as sooth your common cold ailments? Brew a cup of tea as you normally would, let it cool and then apply after using shampoo in the shower. However, be wary. Tea can also enhance the color of your hair, so make sure you’re using the right one for your color. For example, blondes may get a better shine from a chamomile tea, while brunettes are safer to use black tea. Do not add milk or sweeteners to tea you use on your hair.

Don’t go spending half your weekly income on a hair treatment just because a beautiful celebrity endorses it. You’ve more than likely already got everything you need for shiny, smooth locks at home.

Thoughtful Thank Yous

Need to say a big thank you to a special someone? Want to say it with more than just words? If so, then you need to use one of the following cute gift ideas.

A Box Of Chocolates

Everyone loves chocolate, so a box of chocolates is a great treat for someone who has helped you out or done you a nice favour. Why not go further and treat them to a personalised box of chocolates? As you can see on the Chocogram website, there are loads of ways you can personalise someone’s chocs. You might want to create a box of a special selection of chocolates that you know your friend would love, or you could get a special message printed on the box. Some companies will even give you the chance to get a photo printed on the chocolate!

A Meal Out

If you haven’t seen the friend you need to thank in a long while, you might want to spend some time catching up together. So, why not take them out for a meal in their favourite restaurant? This gives you the chance to thank them and also have a good chat with them. Just remember that you need to foot the whole bill at the end of the night!

Some Scented Candles

Does your friend love relaxing on the sofa every evening in front of the TV? If this is their idea of the perfect evening, then why not try and add some extra comfort to their night? You can do this by gifting them a few different scented candles. For example, Yankee Candles are really popular right now, and look very attractive. They will be a nice decorative feature in your friend’s living room, and will also smell amazing!

A Magazine Subscription

A magazine subscription is a great idea for all of your friends who love to read.You just have to pay a one-off fee, and then your friend will receive a copy of a magazine every month for a year. Not sure what kind of magazine they would like to receive? Then why not buy a subscription to a service like Stack Magazines. This is a subscription service, but your friend will get a different magazine each month.

Thank-You Socks

Lots of quirky sock companies and gift stores now give you the choice to add a personalised message to socks. That way, your friend can see how grateful you are every time they get dressed in the morning!

Your friend will definitely want to say thanks after receiving one of these thank-you gifts!

Gifts To Give To People That Are Impossible To Buy For

There are many people in this world that are so self sufficient that they already have everything they could ever need in this lifetime. Then there are those people that are difficult to buy for because they are picky over their taste in clothing, decor and much more. We all know at least one. Luckily, there are gifts out there that you can buy even for the most impossible people to buy for and this guide, is going to give you some ideas on what to get for that person.

Vouchers

Let’s get an obvious one straight out into the open. Buying vouchers for the places that you know they love to visit is a great way of giving them a gift without having to worry about getting them the wrong thing. They can simply choose the gift themselves and enjoy the freedom of being able to go into the store that they love and not have to spend much (if any) of their own money on what they want.

Another good idea when it comes to vouchers is buying them tokens to their local supermarkets. Some people like gifts that are purely convenient to them, and buying them tokens so that they can get their groceries in for a week or two will be a perfect gift.

Make It Personal

While there are a plethora of personalised gifts that you can buy for people, there are some particularly unusual ones that might mean a little bit more to them than just a funny mug with a rude slogan on it. For example, if you’re buying for a veteran of the forces, why not go for a coin personalised to their services in the forces. You can buy and design these coins from MilitaryCoins, who will help you through the whole process. All you will need to do is find out the information from them on when they were in service, any special service numbers they had and also anything else you might want to add to make the gift that little bit more special.

Make Them Laugh

Have you got a funny or embarrassing story on the person you’re trying to buy for? Or maybe something happened to you within their presence? Try and put together a gift that will remind them of the funny times and make sure that it’s obvious that the gift is meant to be funny. The world lacks laughter these days and bringing a smile to someone’s face is an amazing feeling for both parties.

The Final Word

So here we have three different ideas on what you could get for someone that is impossible to buy for. Not only could you buy something that’s useful to them, but you could go down the route of making your gifts as personalised as possible. Not only will it show them that you care, but it’s much better than receiving yet another jumper. Happy gift hunting!

Alternative Therapies: The Old Way to the New You

As more medical practitioners suggest the use of alternative therapies alongside medications, alternative therapies are becoming more popular than ever before. The majority of alternative therapies are methods that have been practiced for centuries and seen astounding results. For many people, the inclusion of an alternative therapy as part of a recovery transforms their lives for the better. So, what are the benefits of using an alternative therapy when you aren’t feeling well?

Pain

There are so many people suffering with pain on a daily basis, and many of those people find that prescribed painkillers don’t work or don’t last long. Using an alternative therapy could dramatically improve the way people manage their pain. For example, visiting a chiropractor for back pain has helped many people with their pain relief and a study showed that up to 35% of 135 patients were able to stop taking pain relief medication entirely.

Infertility

There was a time when doctors weren’t allowed to prescribe anything other than drugs to couples who were finding it difficult to conceive. However, the majority of private fertility clinics now have in-house specialists in fertility acupuncture. Acupuncture is said to help the female partner relax and increase the uterine lining thickness in preparation for IVF. For men, acupuncture has been said to increase motility in sperm. For many couples who have gone through IVF and come out successful, they say that acupuncture was a big part of their success.

Chronic Illness

Chronic illnesses can come with a range of different symptoms that are difficult to manage. From pain to nausea and insomnia, it’s difficult to find a medication that can balance them all. Visiting somewhere like, Billings Massage Therapists, can help alleviate some of those symptoms. Massage can help the whole body relax, making it easier for it to naturally heal itself. It also promotes good circulation and blood flow, making it easier to get around in pain and it promotes a good night’s rest. Any side effects from the use of medication for a chronic illness can usually be balanced out with an alternative therapy.

Cost

The cost of continually buying medications is enough to give anyone nightmares. For someone who can’t afford to buy drugs or isn’t covered for medications on insurance, alternative therapies can be a cheaper option. For example, a few sessions of acupuncture per month will cost far less than a month’s worth of pain medication. If the therapy works, you may need fewer appointments as time goes on.

Mental Health

Mental health problems can severely affect a person’s stress levels. Alternative therapies focus on healing the mind as well as the body. So, a therapy like meditation could be invaluable to someone suffering from anxiety. Similarly, acupuncture is offered to patients suffering from depression to naturally trigger the release of endorphins. Just one session per week can change the way a person feels about life, work, relationships and more.

There are so many benefits to alternative therapies, it’s surprising it’s taken this long for medical professionals to suggest them.

Winter Accessories That Warm Your Outfit

With winter firmly approaching and the days cooling off, your wardrobe is bound to shift. The floaty dresses and open toe wedges are being traded in for skinny jeans and knee-high boots, with cocktails in the sun traded for hot chocolate in the snow. Winter is indeed very much on the way and as your clothing swaps over to something more suitable for the season, so must your accessories. Coco Chanel once said that “fashion changes but style endures” and you should take that advice with you to the stores when you go shopping for your accessories. Fashion will change season to season and year to year, but if you’re stylish and choosy with your accessory choices, you won’t ever be out of fashion!

Choosing your accessories in the digital age is easy, especially with smart clothes on the rise. We’re not talking tailored suits and designer handbags, we’re talking a GPS trackable smart wallet that matches your outfit and keeps you safe. We’re talking this Samsung belt that can tell you whether you’ve gained any holiday weight. Winter accessories that warm up your outfit don’t just stay with the traditional anymore, not when there are smart clothes on offer to keep you looking fantastic. So, what warming accessories can you wear in the colder months to keep you toasty?

Smart Jeans. Okay, so regular jeans are technically not an accessory as such, but smart jeans ARE a walking accessory and when you’re putting away the dresses and maxi skirts and swapping them for jeans, wearable tech is an amazing option. These Joe’s Jeans are able to charge your iPhone 6 as you walk, making them comfortable and functional as an option this winter. Pair them with some…

Ugg Boots. Never out of fashion, comfy boots are a total must in the colder months. These authentic Uggs are waterproof and will keep you warm wherever you are, and with a pair of jeans you will be on trend!


Image Source

Oversized Scarf. The beauty with scarves is that they can be worn more than one way. They can transform an entire outfit and make it so that you look trendy and smart all at the same time. Oversized scarves aren’t just an accessory, they’re an essential for the season!


Image Source

Techy Gloves. Similarly to smart jeans, gloves that are combined with digital tech are a must. Trying to text on a smartphone when you’re out in the cold is impossible, but these amazing gloves have a fabric on the fingers that work on your phone screen so you won’t freeze while updating people on where you are!

Hats. Winter is a time for warming and hats, while beautiful all year round, are perfect in the winter. Beanies are just the perfect mix of cute and sexy while still remaining stylish, and beanies that hang off the back of your head are a stunning way to accentuate your hairstyle while keeping toasty.

Winter accessories are not boring ones, they’re a necessity to stay stylish and bright even when the world is grey and gloomy!
