Your Guide to Finding the Perfect Menstrual Cup

Tampons and pads are fine ways to absorb your menstrual flow, but they’ve been getting some bad rep recently due to the environmental waste they leave behind at landfills and oceans and the harmful chemicals they contain.

Menstrual cups, on the other hand, are a healthier and eco-friendlier alternative. However, there are several factors to consider before you go out to buy one.

It may not be the perfect science, but here are some the things you should take into account the type of menstrual cup you’re looking for:

How To Find The Perfect Menstrual Cup

Most of the menstrual cups come in two different sizes depending on your age and whether you have given birth.

What Is Your Age?<
Age affects the required menstrual cup size because as you grow older, your hips will naturally widen. When this happens, your vaginal muscles will lose some of their elasticity. Due to this, a larger menstrual cup is suggested.

Have You Given Birth?
Menstrual cup manufacturers recommend that women who are under the age of 30 and have never given birth through their vagina to use a smaller-sized cup. On the other hand, women who have given birth and are over 30 should wear a larger-sized cup.

Here’s the thing, every woman is different. There may be some women over 30, who have children but have really strong pelvic floor muscles due to her being physically active. If this is how you are, then you may be more comfortable with a smaller cup. Still, you can make a more proper decision if you know your own body and use that information along with suggestions from menstrual cup manufacturers.

Where Does Your Cervix Sit?
Depending on your menstrual cycle, the position of your cervix may rise or fall. When choosing a menstrual cup that’s appropriate for you, it’s important to know where your cervix sits during menstruation.

Cervix Positions
High Cervix: If your cervix is difficult to reach or cannot be felt at all, then its position is pretty high during ovulation. For this, a longer menstrual cup is required.

Average Cervix: If your cervix doesn’t sit low but is easy to reach, then your cervix height is average. Fortunately, though, this cervix height can fit with most menstrual cup lengths.

Low Cervix: If your cervix sits right outside of your vagina (barely an inch) then you have a low cervix and a short menstrual cup will do for you.

You can find out where your cervix sits by inserting a clean finger inside your vagina. But be careful here. Slowly move your finger to the back of your vagina, just past the pelvic bone in a zone that can be perceived as “empty space.”

When you feel something that is like a round nub with a decline in the middle, that will be your cervix. Another interesting note is that the cervix feels like the tip of your nose during menstrual bleeding. In fact, you may want to keep measuring the height of your cervix during your period as it does not sit in the same place every day.

How Heavy Is Your Flow?
Even though there are plenty of women who claim they have a heavy flow, this is just not the case. Several studies have shown that a woman’s flow is moderate on average. And by moderate, we mean 1- 4 oz of menstrual blood (or 2 – 8 tablespoons for better clarity) over the entire course of your menstrual cycle. The average menstrual cup is specifically designed to contain an average flow.

But if your flow is heavy, then you should choose a cup with a higher capacity. These kinds of cups will need to be emptied less frequently. Even if you have no idea how heavy your flow is, it is always best to overestimate. This way, you won’t be emptying your menstrual cups too often. 

Conclusion
Once you have factored in your age, the position of your cervix and the heaviness of your flow, you will have a clearer idea on how to find the perfect menstrual cup for your period.

Common Abbreviations and Jargon You Need To Know In The Real Estate Industry

Every industry has their own jargon and abbreviations that is also including the real estate industry. If you are not in the industry and as you speak with the real estate agent, you will probably be wondering what is loan to value (LTV), what is temporary occupation permit (TOP) or what is stamp duty (SD)? These are just the tip of the iceberg and here we are going to share some of the basic jargon and abbreviations.

HDB – Housing Development Board
There are many countries in the world that provides public housing to their citizens but Singapore public housing is popular and well received by their Singaporeans. About 80% Singaporeans reside in HDB flat that is distinction with the highest percentages of residents in public housing in the world. With the rising population and land scarcity in Singapore, the value of hitting $1million in the HDB market is not far away from every Singaporean dreams.

TOP – Temporary Occupation Permit
TOP refers to the time when construction is completed and the property is ready to be occupied. Then, there is another abbreviation for the certificate that is issued by the Building Authority which is the Certificate of Statutory Completion (CSC) at this time.

COV – Cash Over Valuation
Most widely used since the increase of HDB prices from year 2007 onwards, COV refers to the sum above and beyond of what the flat is value at. It is also known to reach highs of more than S$50,000 in the recent years.

LTV – Loan To Value
It refers to the maximum amount that a bank is willing to lend in financing property purchased. For a value of S$1 million property, if the LTV is at 80%, that means the bank will lend a maximum of S$800,000. Even more recently, a series of cooling measures that is introduced by local authorities to discourage speculation have included the lowering the LTV or second mortgages to 60% from 70% previously.

SSD – Standard Stamp Duty
It is imposed by the IRAS (Internal Revenue Authority Singapore) on both buyers and sellers of property. It is also calculated according to the amount of property purchase value. It is calculated according to the tier system, with 1% imposed on the first S$180,000, 2% on the next S$180,000 and 3% thereafter. With the recent cooling measures have also included new SSD rates that is ranging from 4% to 6% for residential properties that disposed of within 4 years of acquisition.

ABSD – Additional Buyer Stamp Duty
As per the name, it is the additional stamp duty apply on buyers who are existing buyers or have bought any properties before under their name. It is computed on the purchase price as stated in the dutiable document or market value of the property. Recently, the government has increased the ABSD rates by 5% for cooling measure purposes. You can click here to check out the latest ABSD rates.

VTO – View To Offer
VTO is commonly used in open listings and sometimes the owner is ‘testing the waters’ by not indicating an asking price in order to see what the property offers can attract. There are some situations where VTO listing may mean that the flat may not have had its valuation exercise completed.

Co – broke
There could be situations where both buyer and seller engaged their own agents, a co-broke refers to agreement where agents on both side agree to share exclusive listings with one another, with a 50-50 split of commission. On the contrary, the co-broke system is sometimes abused, there are cases where agents may not reveal higher offers or encourage a client to buy more expensive flat in order to earn the maximum commission amount.

OTP – Option to Purchase
It is the right offered by a seller of a property to another potential buyer of the property. It sets up an option to buy property at a certain price within a certain pre-agreed time period. Buyers has the tendency to pay a fee for the right which they have to act on the OTP within the agreed period if they still want to go ahead to buy the property.

Is Buying To Let Still Feasible?

There are many youngsters who are looking at house for rent in Seremban as buying a house is too expensive. Most people nowadays are working more than just one job to earn some extra passive income. Furthermore, property market is still considered as a popular investment. Are you thinking of buying a property for investment purpose, or to earn some passive income? However, with the recent property hike, although at a slower pace, you are still unsure if buying a property is a good way to earn some passive income as the property market is not stable yet and prices are still fluctuating.

Although our country’s currency is weak compared to the previous years, this does not stop people from investing in the property market. Before you jump onto the bandwagon of buying a property, it is essential to understand the Real Property Gains Tax (RPGT) on how it works, what it is and how it is computed. This article will elaborate on the feasibility of buying a buy to let property in Malaysia.

1. Right target market
Think about your target tenants. Finding the right target market is essential for people who are in the property market. Determine the potential target market depending on the location of your property. Young couples are more likely to rent a place instead of buying as they are not fully settled down yet. Furthermore, buying a property is still a big commitment for them. As for students, they are more likely to be interested in renting a room instead, as all they need is just a room to sleep and study. Furthermore, it is only for a short period.

2. Potential rental yield
A rental yield is the percentage you get in return based on the rental you get from your property after deducting costs incurred in maintaining your property versus total property price. As for capital gain, it is the gain or loss after you sell your property.

In order to know if your property is generating money flow from the rental that you collect is much more than comparing the rental you collect with the monthly installment that you pay, as you will also need to take other costs involved into consideration as well.

To calculate the rental yield, you may use the formula below:

Net rental yield = [(monthly rental x 12 months) – annual maintenance cost] / property price] x  100

Let’s say you are buying a RM750,000, 672 sq ft condominium unit at Verve Suites, Mont Kiara, with RM0.33 maintenance fee per sq ft. The rental rate in the market will then be RM2,800 for a furnished unit, which is equivalent to RM3,500 per annum.

Based on the calculation following the formula above, the net rental yield will then be 4.01% per year. However, the mortgage is not included yet. After taking your mortgage into consideration, your net rental yield will then be -1.16% per year based on the formula below:

Net rental yield = [annual rental – annual cost of maintenance – total instalment] / selling price x 100

Based on the calculation above, the property looks promising as a buy to let investment, and is definitely better than putting your cash in a bank under the fixed deposit scheme with a 4.15% interest rate or lower.

Miscellaneous costs

Buying a property involves other miscellaneous costs as well as you are not only paying for the property price only.

a. Property tax

Property tax is payable for all properties that include shops, lands and factories. Property tax comes in assessment tax where it is based on the annual rental value of the property; and quit rent where it is calculated on a yearly rate.

 

Assessment tax Quit rent
6%, flat rate Paid once yearly for landed property
Can be paid in two instalments RM0.035 per sqaure foot/year
Based on the annual rental value of property

b. Rental income tax

Rental income tax is only applied to those who have a total rental income of more than RM5,000. However, the cost related with your buy to let proeprty is able to get offset against the rental income. 

c. Real property gains tax (RPGT)

Real property gains tax applies to property that is sold lesser than 5 years after purchasing. RPGT charges only the profits that you get after minusing the original property price, renovation and incidental costs, such as stamp duty, legal fees, advertisement fees and etc.

 

Year Percentage (%)
1st year 30
2nd year 30
3rd year 30
4th year 20
5th year 15
6th year 0

The imposement of RPGT has its own pros and cons, with lesser impact on genuine buyers as compared to property investors. It is entirely up to you to decide whether it has more pros than cons or vice versa.

In conclusion, you will need to plan ahead and do your research before buying a property in Malaysia. Set realistic goals, build a budget and stay within your means to prevent yourself from getting into a financial debt. Know that there will be its advantages and disadvantages when it comes to investment in the property market.

 

How You Can Benefit from Physical Therapy as a Mom

Many people think that physical therapists are only there for after an accident. However, there are many benefits of physical therapy in Valrico, FL. As a mom, it can be advantageous for you to make an appointment to experience the benefits firsthand.

Eliminate Pain
A physical therapist can help you work through some of the pain that you are experiencing. You may have pain as a result of childbirth, years of carrying your child on your hip or even a recent injury. Rather than simply struggling through the pain, you can overcome it with a few sessions of physical therapy.

Improve Mobility

If you don’t feel as though you are as flexible as you used to be, this may be as a result of your muscles not being properly worked. During physical therapy sessions, you can learn about various exercises that can help you.

Avoid Surgery
The last thing you want to do is be down for the count while you recover from surgery. If you are dealing with a significant amount of back pain, you may think that spinal surgery is the only solution.

If you are a bit skeptical as to whether a physical therapist can help you or not, the best thing to do is schedule an appointment. This way, you can have a consultation and learn about the various ways that physical therapy can help you overcome the various aches and pains that you have.

 

Selecting a Way to Remove Unwanted Hair

Getting rid of unwanted hair may seem simple. All you need to do is shave it off, right? But what if it’s on your back or somewhere else you can’t reach?  Alternatively, what if you can reach it but are sick of having it grow back almost right away? Is it worth it to undergo clinical hair removal, such as laser treatment? Those are all questions you need to ask when selecting a way to remove unwanted hair. To answer them, you need to compare some of the top hair removal options and discover their benefits and drawbacks. Here are some questions and answers to help you do that.

Do You Want to Remove Hair at Home?
If your biggest concern is the ability to remove hair at home, shaving is probably your best option. It is a painless and quick hair removal method. However, it does take a lot of time, both in terms of individual shaving sessions and the need to repeat the process frequently. When you remove hair with a razor blade at home, you essentially mow the hair like grass, leaving the lower portions of each hair behind. You may not see the remaining strands, but they are there. That is why they show back up within a few days. It only takes a short time for them to pop back through your skin.

Are You Looking for Hair Removal Accuracy?
If accuracy is your biggest hair removal concern, laser treatment may be the best option for you. When you go to a clinic for treatment with hair-removal equipment, lasers are by far the most common devices you will find. Lasers target hairs individually, treating all of the hairs in the area targeted quickly and efficiently without missing any.

Laser treatment is also beneficial because, after the hairs are gone, they take a long time to return. Each whole hair is targeted. Since even the portion you cannot see falls out, it takes longer to return. Often, regrowth may take weeks or longer. However, laser treatment does not remove hairs on the spot. It takes a series of treatments before you will see significant hair loss. So, if you’re looking for immediate hair removal, it is a poor choice.

Is Pain Your Main Hair Removal Worry?
Pain is another consideration when comparing hair removal options. Ripping hair out, such as by using wax or sugar, is one of the most painful methods. Another is electrolysis. Any plucking devices, such as tweezers or epilators, can also cause some pain or discomfort. On the other hand, laser hair removal treatment is often only mildly uncomfortable. You may feel a sensation of a mild electric shock during the procedure. Your skin will also feel warm, but your clinician can help. He or she may use blasts of cool air or numbing salves to make you more comfortable.

How Much Hair do You Want to Remove?
Another important consideration is the amount of hair you want to remove. If you are trying to remove a few stray hairs, laser treatment is impractical. Electrolysis or simply plucking the hairs with tweezers may be a better option. However, large areas of unwanted hair are easier to remove with lasers, sugaring, waxing or shaving. For example, a single laser treatment usually takes an hour or less, depending on the part of your body where the hair is located and the amount of hair. Electrolysis can only remove a tiny amount of hair in a short time.

Tips On Choosing Your Dream Wedding Gown

Congratulations on getting engaged!  The next question on your mind now is looking for your dream wedding gown.  I am sure since being engaged, you’ve been asked a dizzying array of wedding dress questions – what you like, when are you going shopping, who’s going, are you wearing sleeves, sleeveless or off-shouldered, who’s your favorite designer, who’s buying, what’s your budget, where to buy, yada yada yada!  Bet you never knew that shopping for a wedding gown could be this stressful!

Are you finding a wedding dress that doesn’t feel a cookie-cutter-wedding-dress?  It can be a challenge, especially if you’re at the age where you’re attending nuptials every other weekend.  To give your Big Day getup a fighting chance at standing out from the masses, it’s imperative to find a style that feels fresh or, at least, that your guests have never  seen before.

There are tons of online bridal shops for you to browse for something that is love at first sight for. But it could take days and weeks if not months if you are the indecisive type.

Here are some tips for you on finding your dream wedding dress:

Location – knowing the place and time of your wedding will help focus your search. Will you be having a daytime ceremony on the beach? You can rule out ball gowns with long trains and dramatic embellishments. Exchanging vows in a candlelit cathedral? Avoid short slip dresses or anything that looks like it could be worn to a cocktail party. Most fabrics are suitable year-round, but some, like linen and organdy, are more appropriate for warm weather, while velvet and brocade are best left for winter.

Set a Budget – figure out how much you want to spend, and tell the salesperson before she starts bringing out gowns. That way you won’t lose your heart to a dress you can’t afford. Typically, a wedding ensemble, including veil, undergarments, and any other accessories, accounts for 10 percent to 15 percent of the total wedding cost. Factor in extras, such as alterations—which can add a few hundred or a few thousand dollars depending on how involved they are—and shipping fees. Once the dress arrives, it may require professional pressing or steaming, which can tack on a hundred dollars or more.

Start Early – begin shopping six to nine months before your wedding. It takes about four months for a manufacturer to make a dress and another two months to complete the alterations. Very elaborate gowns will take longer. Short on time? Many shops do rush orders for an additional fee, but your choices will likely be limited.

You can consider ordering your wedding dress from online bridal shops like Babyonline to get a ready-made gown, shipped to you. Whether you are looking for an ausgefallene ballkleider or an ausgefallene brautkleider, Babyonline has them all.

Do Your Research– it’s not every day you see terms such as basque waist or Watteau train or try to differentiate between an ausgefallene brautkleider and an Ausgefallene cocktailkleider.  Pore over bridal magazines, books, and websites to learn about fabrics, silhouettes, and the lexicon so you can better convey what you’re looking for. Start a folder with pictures of dresses or details that appeal to you, and take it with you when you shop

Green Long Evening Dresses Chiffon Beaded Sheath Dresses Prom Dresses Party Dresses

Make a Game Plan – decide where you want to go and call stores in advance to find out which designers they carry, the price range of their dresses, and if they sell accessories and provide alterations.

Focus on Fit, Not Size – bridal shops often run smaller than ready-to-wear; if you normally buy an 8, you may need a 12. So forget the numbers and don’t insist on a smaller size because you intend to lose weight before the wedding—order the one that fits now. A gown is easy to take in, but difficult and costly to let out.

Halloween Party Favors

What is it about Halloween that makes October 31 so popular? Perhaps it’s the mystery, or just the candy? Perhaps the excitement of a new costume? Whatever the draw, Halloween is here to stay.

The word Halloween literally means the evening before All Hallows Day or All Saint’s Day, celebrated on November 1. Halloween is also the shortened name of Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Evening and All Saint’s Eve which is celebrated on October 31. The origin and meaning of Halloween is derived from ancient Celtic harvest festivals, but more recently we think of Halloween as a night filled with candy, trick-or-treating, pumpkins, ghosts and death.

Another tradition is the  belief that during the night of November 1, demons, witches, and evil spirits freely roamed the earth with joy to greet the arrival of “their season” – the long nights and early dark of the winter months. The demons had their fun with poor mortals that night, frightening, harming, and even playing all kinds of mean tricks on them. The only way, it seemed, for scared humans to escape the persecution of the demons was to offer them things they liked, especially fancy foods and sweets. Or, in order to escape the fury of these horrible creatures, a human could disguise himself as one of them and join in their roaming. In this way they would recognize the human as a demon or witch and the human would not be bothered that night.

On Halloween, kids and adults attend costume parties, make lanterns out of big pumpkins, visit haunted locations, tell scary stories to each other, play pranks and also watch horror movies. People light bonfires to ward off all evil spirits and ghosts.

Halloween Party Favors
Other than the usual Trick-or-Treat Containers and spooky themed candies and snacks, some people hand out Voogueme Party time prescription eyeglasses for their guests to wear at their spooky party.  Besides making any fall event more festive, these fun little favors are great for photography.

 

 

These  exaggerated and novel glasses frames  for photography are definitely Insta- worthy!

There are tons of creative Halloween favor ideas that you can find on the internet that you and your ghoulish guests will love. I would fancy receiving one of those cute glasses frames for women that I can also don on during holidays with my kids 😎

Modish Women’s Outerwear and Sweaters

When the mercury starts to drop, there’s no better way to stay warm and glamorous than in a furry topper and chick women’s outerwear.  With candy-colored faux fur coats stealing the spotlight this season, there are plenty of outerwear options ready to instantly transform you into a street style star.

Let’s have a look at what some of my favourite super models and celebrities are wearing to beat the cold:

Gigi Hadid looked really cosy in a shearling coat and goggle-like sunglasses.  Do you love this level of snug?

 

While out in New York for Fashion Week, Bella Hadid wrapped up in a huge burgundy coat decorated with stars.

Gigi and Bella Hadid are sisters, whose mother was a former model.

Gigi is acing it with her style this winter. Here the model battles a snow shower wearing some trusty boyfriend jeans, a black coat and her Stuart Weitzman ‘Gigi’ boots.

Hailey Baldwin wraps up for the cold weather wearing a big jacket a beanie.

 

This has got to be my favorite, being a mini skirt lover myself –  Gigi Hadid ignores the New York snow and wears her leather mini skirt and thigh-high boots (swoon!) out at New York Fashion Wee.  Wish I could dress up like this in the snow one day 😊

 

Jessica Alba kept warm in the city as she wore an oversized khaki parka coat, and a brown cross-body satchel.

 

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked absolutely stunning in her leopard-print jacket at  GLAMOUR HQ, we’re sure you can see why! I love this style of dressing too.

imageDon’t you just love the elegant women’s outerwear worn by these super models and celebrities? I am swooning over all of them! I wish I could don on these jackets and faux fur coats too. I think it will most likely take another few more years before we embark on our next overseas winter holiday.

My two older daughters have a thing for cute sweaters and pullover hoodies. They take every opportunity to don on their sweaters and hoodies whenever we are out at air-conditioned places.  Not only are my two girls hoodie fanatics. I notice that this is a trend among their friends and my friends’ teenagers. I see teenagers and youths on the street wrapped up in a pullover hoodies on hot sweltering afternoons 🙄  But donning on pullover hoodies and sweaters in our kind of weather is mind-boggling to me. I can’t even stand wearing a sleeved top in our sizzling hot weather.  Moreover these sweaters do not come cheap. Thankfully for online stores like FashionMia, women’s outerwear and cute sweaters can be sourced at affordable prices.

Check out some of these funky sweaters from FashionMia:

 

FashionMia carries an impressive collection of funky outerwear, dresses, tops, shoes and much more. Check them out.

 

Shopping For Women’s Boots And Cheap Coats

I have never owned a pair of women’s fashion boots and I would really love to own an over-the-knee boots or a mid-calf boots. But it is crazy to put on a pair of leather boots in our country where the weather is sizzling hot almost every day. When I next go overseas during winter, I think I am going to get myself a pair of boots.  I regretted I didn’t buy a pair of boots when I visited New Zealand three years ago. We were in Auckland in summer (December) but that summer’s temperature was hovering at 15C.   I was a tad unprepared for the chilly weather with rain almost everyday. I had packed along plenty of summer dresses and a pair or two of leggings with thin sweaters. Thankfully the mil loaned me her mink cardigan which kept me warm for two weeks.

For those of you who know me well, long pants (jeans, leggings, jeggings, etc) are not my thing. I find wearing long pants pretty uncomfortable. I am always in  dresses, skirts or short pants.  Even when I go overseas during winter, I am pretty reluctant to pack along some long pants. I remember wearing short pants and a bra singlet under a thin sweater in 15C temperature in Auckland and got stares 🤭

Recently I got some ideas from a fashion website on what models wear during fall / winter.   At Fendi’s Fall/Winter 2017 show, the gorgeous Bella Hadid strutted the runway in a blazer, a shirt and a pair of red over-the-knee sock boots where pants would normally be. It’s an effortless yet surprisingly warm combo that she wears rather regularly.

 Fendi Fall/Winter 2017-2018 30

You see, you can survive the fall/winter without pants but with over-the-knee boots.  Think about how sexy it’ll look layered under a shirt dress or a skirt with a slit even though you’re showing just a sliver of skin. Think about how it’s going to keep you warm, sans pants.  So this is one of the ways on how skirt / dress lovers can ditch the pants for over-the-knee  boots during fall/winter.

Women’s  boots can be very expensive. Recently I found an online fashion retail store that carries affordable women’s fashion boots and cheap coats. For those of you who love wearing different coats and boots during fall/winter each year, you can check out BerryLook.com for affordable winter clothes, boots, shoes and more.

Spending the night in a bar
Men will tend to spend the night in a bar and grab “some” drinks. Fortunately, some of them will be faithful enough to just take their beer and go home. However, some of them are a bit naughty. After taking several bottles of beers, their judgment becomes impaired.

Infidelity
It is something that happens quite often during stag weekends. It is practiced by married men attending their friend’s weekend.

The possibility of the groom being “abused”
This is something most women worry about. Yes, the groom is usually “abused” on his stag weekend and most of the time he will not get mad over it. Even if his friends are placing him intentionally in crazy situations and maybe going a bit far with providing some love treats, just to spice up the party, there is nothing that bad in that and women need to chill out on this possibility and know that their man will come back home ok.

Everything that is done on your fiancé while out on a stag weekend is just in the name of having fun. Remember, he is out with his friends whom they have shared some memories. They will wish to bring back those memories they hold dearly.

Expect men to be cheeky

Online Shopping

These days I buy many of my stuff online ~ from witch hazel toner to laundry detergent, computer table, essential oils, personal care products, food stuff, supplements, clothes, bags and my latest purchase was a stand fan.  Online shopping really saves me a lot of time from having to brave the horrendous traffic jam to finding a place to park my car in the congested city that I live in.

Online merchants are competing against one another to offer the lowest prices, best deals, best shopping apps and some even offer cash back.  I now have over RM20 in my cash back account ever since I joined this online merchant late last year.  The more I shop, the more cash back I’ll receive in my account.

Online stores now have shopping apps that make our online shopping experience so much more easier and convenient. In addition, we get extra discount if we use the merchant’s app to shop. One such app is the Tidebuy app, a shopping app by Tidebuy, a global online retail store offering trendy clothes, shoes, bags, bedding, kids clothing, jewelry, wigs, etc.

All you have to do is hop over to the App Store and download the app.  Within minutes, you can start shopping already. New users of the Tidebuy app get $138 off coupons! Try them today!

Black Friday Coupons

Lately I have included some basic strength training in my exercise regimen before I start my early morning jog.  This includes arms, legs and body stretching, squats, frog jumps, spot jogging, jumping jacks, push ups and bicycle crunches. The most energy and stamina zapping strength training for me is frog jumps.  This exercise can maximize the calorie burn within a couple of minutes. It is intense, innovative and something that will elevate your heart rate like never before. I often go breathless after frog jumps /frog hops but  feel great as I begin to sweat. Next is my usual morning jog.

A good pair of running shoes is very important to me when I run.  Good running shoes prevent tripping and injuries to the feet.  I always stick to brands like Nike and Addidas.  The outer soles of my Adidas running shoes are starting to peel off and I almost tripped on the dangling soles while running a few mornings ago.  I keep forgetting to look for a  new pair of running shoes each time I go shopping at the mall.  Cass has been reminding me to change my running shoes as she’s worried that I may fall.  Thankfully for 2018 Adidas coupons on Black Friday and 2018 Black Friday shoes coupon deals,  I can get discounted running shoes without having to make a trip to the shopping mall!

Ask anyone what the most stressful things in life are, and you’re pretty likely to get the same few answers. Starting a new job, having a baby, getting married, and perhaps the most common of all, moving house. If you know anyone who tells you that moving house is not a stressful experience, then they are either lying or that have figured out some kind of incredible secret! No matter what you do, moving house is always going to come with its fair share of stress and difficulty. But is there nothing that you can do about it? Do you really just have to put up with the stress of it all and hope for the best? Of course not! There are plenty of things that you can do that, while they might not take all the stress out of it, can make things a great deal easier. Here are some ways to take some of the stress out of moving home.

Deal with the boring stuff first
When you’re moving home that usually means that you’re dealing with various contracts and legal complications that come with renting, buying, or selling a home. Make sure to deal with all of those things as quickly as possible. It might be tempting to put them off, but in the end, that’s just going to make your life more stressful overall. There are plenty of ways that you can make a lot of legal stuff less complicated and difficult as well. Hiding your head in the sand might be tempting, but it’s going to make things far once in the long run.

Don’t do it alone
The worst thing that anyone can do when they’re moving home is to try and do it completely by themselves. It might not seem like that much of a gargantuan task, but it is often far more difficult than you initially expect. Even just knowing where to start when it comes to packing everything up can be a challenge. But once you have everything packed away then you have to deal with the logistical difficulties of getting it to somewhere new. If you’re not in the position to drive a moving van from one place to the next, then you could be looking at multiple trips, depending on the size of your car. Hiring movers might seem like a drastic option, but it really can make all the difference in the world. Companies like Bekins Moving Solution are professionals, and they know exactly how to pack, store and transport your belongings in the most efficient and safest way possible. There are some movers who will even pack and unpack your boxes for you, allowing you to focus on getting settled into your new place. Of course, if you don’t have the budget for a crew of movers, you could always just bribe your friends with pizza and get them to help. Any number of extra hands can make the whole process much easier.
