Ways To Take Back Control Of Your Health

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.

Staying Safe And Healthy At Work

standard June 2, 2017 Leave a response

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 work in a busy office, so whilst you may think this is fairly risk free, there are certain pitfalls that even working in an office can bring. 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. Let’s take a look at the most essential basic steps towards looking after your wellbeing at work.

Interesting (And Arguably Easy) Ways To Make Money

Would you jump at the chance to make more money?

That’s a stupid question really. Unless you’re Richard Branson, chances are some extra money would come in super handy! With the advent of the internet, ways to make money are growing all the time and some are so easy, you’d be silly not to take them up on it. 

Most people think that to make a substantial amount of money, they need to work really hard. Harder than they are willing to work! However, this isn’t always the case, thanks to the internet and the things it can allow us to do. Here are some interesting ways you can make money, so you can work smarter, not necessarily harder.

Best Ways To Relieve Chicken Pox

standard June 1, 2017 Leave a response

Well… at least it is out of the way. We knew Chicken Pox were coming but just not quite… that soon. In a lot of ways, I’d rather Short Rib get rid of them at the age of one than when he’s five. It was a bit of a naff week, with a couple of sleepless nights but to be fair, our boy was a real trooper. Considering how itchy he must have been, there were very few whinges.

We did a lot of research from the minute we found his first spot, because whilst we knew it wasn’t dangerous, there was an overwhelming feeling of helplessness when it came to this. We couldn’t do a great deal to help, there’s no cure and we could only imagine how uncomfortable our little boy was (neither of us remember it, after all). We tried a LOT of things to try and help… here are the ones that worked best for us.
