Winning the lottery. If you had a genie granting you three wishes, this one would be up there for a good portion of the population and you can see the appeal. Pretty much every time you see a news article about the latest winners and their plans for spending the money. Whether they intend to blow the lot, or go back to work the next day (yeah, right) there’s no denying that most of us would love to be in their shoes.
I’ve recently started playing the lottery properly. It was once a rite of passage for any sixteen year old to go and buy a ticket on their birthday (I was ID’d by the way) but now, you can play the lottery online rather than trotting into a shop to tick your numbers off. Over the years, lotteries have evolved all over the world and the great thing is that now you’re not just stuck with the UK Lotto and have access to lotteries all over the world thanks to the advent of playing online.
Technology is responsible for making all kinds of tasks in life easier and smoother. One area where this is especially true is the way we approach learning. E-learning has really blown up over the past few years, offering people new and streamlined ways to earn a diploma, degree, special credits, and more.
Thanks to the tools offered through e-learning, it’s truly changed the way people approach everyday tasks.
So, summer is here and the holidays are just around the corner. It’s time where a lot of us decide it’s time to get in shape and start living right!
Let me guess; you want to tackle your physical health so you’ve decided to eat healthily? You’ve also signed up to a gym and started exercising more? Okay, there is nothing wrong with any of these things. After all, a balanced diet and lots of exercise are vital to a long and healthy life. However, maintaining your body isn’t always the answer. Sometimes, you can eat as many fruit and vegetables as you like and it won’t make a difference. If your head isn’t in the right place, your body will follow suit. With that in mind, here are the tips that will exercise your brain instead of your body.
One of the most important aspects of life is preserving yourself for the later years. Usually, this means a combination of healthy eating, exercise, and avoiding injuries and illnesses. Sadly, this isn’t always possible because we don’t live in a plastic bubble. We are all exposed to the outside world and all its harmful bacteria floating around all over the place, tripping hazards, fast cars, rollercoasters… danger everywhere, hah.
Thankfully, researchers are always looking for new ways to improve our lives, and in the past decade, we’ve seen countless new innovations that have helped us bolster our health to make us live longer, healthier and happier lives. To give you three ideas on how technology has helped us, here are a few advances that we’ve seen in recent years that can have a serious impact on your wellbeing.
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…
We’re always on the hunt for new furniture in this house – in the past month, we’ve replaced our TV stand and obtained a coffee table, which Short Rib has commandeered as his artist’s table and toy storage chest. It seems to work for everyone! Wes is now after a new TV (for the new TV stand, of course). I’m putting my foot down though, turning my attention to the smaller items of home décor.
I am big into eclectic mixes and unique items. Things I’ve never seen anywhere else, and that are all different in their own little way. When we were approached by UncommonGoods to have a look at their wares, I was genuinely in my own little piece of home furnishing heaven.
