Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just can’t get to sleep. The usual culprits are restless children, a cold, or maybe even too much coffee. But when it’s none of those things causing your lack of sleep it can be frustrating, especially when you know you have an early start. There are ways to stop you from looking tired, but that’s not going to help with feeling tired. Below are four key things you should bear in mind if you want to achieve a restful night.
Time You give your child a bedtime, so why not have one for yourself? Even if you’re not feeling tired, it’s important to get into bed at a decent time to help yourself unwind. Aim to be in bed between ten and eleven at night. It also helps to turn off the television and put down your phone about an hour before you get into bed. The glare of the screen can disrupt your body’s production of melatonin which helps regulate your sleep pattern.
If you’re trying to save, be it for a new home or a lavish holiday, yet you are failing to reach your goals, you are probably worrying where you are going wrong. Saving isn’t as easy as putting away the money you have spare every month. You need to have a plan. With that in mind, read on to discover the saving mistakes you are probably making.
Not having a plan – One of the biggest mistakes people make is failing to have a savings plan. If you don’t have a plan, you won’t be able to save effectively. You need to determine how much money you have coming in every month, and how much money you have going out. If you’re spending a greater amount than you earn, this is the first problem you need to address. You have to look for ways to make savings, from cancelling subscriptions to calling up your utility company. Once you have done this, you need to determine how much money is left over every month. Set aside a realistic amount for living expenses, and then you will be able to determine how much you can save every month. By having a structured plan in place, you will save more effectively. You will also find it much easier too.
It was October when my husband confirmed that he was coming for the holidays and we both agreed to keep it from the girls, but my eldest found out sooner when I asked her to message Dada using my phone. I completely forgot that our latest conversation was about his flight details and plans on how to surprise them. Since she already knew about it, I told her to keep it a secret and plan on something.
So there, that day has finally come. The plan was we will go to SM Clark for a little early Christmas shopping than the usual, and I’ll be meeting a common friend of ours who was carrying the parcel that my husband has sent for us.
I took them to Pizza Hut for snacks, had a little window shopping, headed to the airport without them, and began with the plan. See what our little girl’s reaction was.
If you are currently thinking about changing your hairstyle, you may have had a flick through a few magazines to try and find the right cut for you. There are a number of factors that need to be considered when choosing a hairstyle, and one of the most important is the shape of your face.
Highlight the good, and play down the bad Choosing the right hairstyle all comes down to highlighting your best features and playing down any bad points. For example, if you have a thin, long face, you should avoid long hair, as it’s only going to drag your face down further. If you do want to have a long hairstyle, you should make sure you go for a layered cut that this at your chin and cheekbones. Long, wavy hair also looks much better than straight hair.
Leaving your home empty this holiday season? You’re not alone. But in order to avoid a classic Christmas-movie-esque break in (which won’t be as laughable as the movie Home Alone), you should probably take some of these steps to securing your belongings before you leave for the holidays.
Lock your home. Seems obvious right? Most burglars just walk in through an unlocked door or window. A spring-latch lock is easy prey for burglars so make sure you have a deadbolt instead, which defies any such attack.
