7 Things To Consider When Introducing Technology To Your Home

standard June 9, 2017 Leave a response

It might sound a little odd to prepare a post about technology that isn’t describing all the new tech gadgets that you need at home. It sounds even more old-fashioned to spread the thought that technology can sometimes be bad. After all, in a world where you can pay coffee from your smartphone, the idea of showing the dark side of technology feels a little ludicrous. It’s a debate however that rages constantly, especially in the parenting world where kids know their way around a tablet better than their parents by their 3rd birthday.

So let’s discuss it! Is it the devil incarnate, that kids shouldn’t touch? Or should your entire household get on the gadgetry as soon as possible? There are pros and cons of course. It’s is about the possible life-changing consequences that the use of tech could have in the short and long terms on people, their lifestyle, and their social and mental development.

So should you be living in the tech house of the future? You should consider these points…

Are you really in control of your health?

I know you’re thinking “what the hell kind of question is that?” but I bet you haven’t really considered it before. I know I haven’t! Most people coast along in life without really taking control of their health matters until they’re forced to, when something goes wrong or a certain event happens that triggers it. And even then, it’s easy to lose focus and let other people control the direction your health takes. I’ve learned recently that it’s always best for you to take driving seat and make the most of your life and your health situation.

Even if you have a problem that’s getting you down, taking action and being in control can empower you. I’m suffering with pretty severe psoriasis at the minute, that is requiring very regular blood tests (and I hate needles) as well as tablets each week and consistent monitoring. There is no better feeling than being control of your own future, and this is even more important when it affects your health and wellbeing. Even though my treatment hasn’t completely kicked in yet, it feels better knowing I’m on the right track. If you’re still not quite convinced, here are some more top reasons to take control of your health.

For most of us, the workplace is where we spend the vast majority of our waking lives. Yet, so many people fail to properly look after themselves while they are at work.

I am quite guilty of lugging heavy boxes of paper around and running through the office like a maniac when I’m trying to get stuff done. Whatever the underlying cause is, it is hugely important not to allow yourself to become too lax when it comes to your own well-being, wherever you work.

As it happens, it is incredibly important to look after yourself at work – not just for yourself, but for your family and your colleagues. There are many things you can do to keep your risk low, and we are going to look at what those might be now.

Preparing Your Body (And Mind) For Falling Pregnant

standard June 1, 2017 Leave a response

Bit of a throwback here… It’s been quite some time since I was pregnant. I had a bit of an indifferent relationship with pregnancy. It wasn’t eventful, stressful or anything. It was a means to an end and that was it… however it was a surprise. We were not trying when I fell pregnant. That took a lot of pressure off.

When you’re actively trying to get pregnant, you can often focus on it happening so much that you stress yourself out. However, stress can often be bad for both your general health levels and your body when you’re trying to conceive. So, instead of worrying about what’s happening, you should work on preparing your body for pregnancy (or at least as much as you can). Even when you do find out what you’re pregnant, these tips can help you to ensure that you not only enjoy a healthy pregnancy but have better levels of health overall.
