The Secret Solutions To Sound Sleep

Spending yours nights tossing and turning, struggling to get a comfortable spot, and finding it impossible to drift off can be very frustrating. Getting yourself to sleep can be very hard sometimes, impacting the next day, and possibly even several days afterward. Of course, there are a lot of chemicals and medical treatments which can be used to approach this sort of issue, but you might not need any of that. Instead, with the right methods, you could solve your sleep issues by yourself. To help you out, this post will be going through some of the rules you should be following and the areas you need to consider.


Food And Drink

Food can have a huge impact on your ability to go to sleep. In most cases, eating food within an hour and a half before going to bed is bad, anyway, as it will impact your ability to digest the food well. Along with this, though, some foods will keep you awake. Sugary and fatty foods are often very good at helping you to focus for short periods of time. But, before bed, this is exactly the opposite of what you want. It’s always wise to avoid eating before you sleep, especially if you already struggle to drift off, anyway.

Southport Air Show 2017

This weekend marked the annual Southport Air Show - a staple in the calendar for many people, Mike has been trying to get me to the show for years.. 2017 was his year to succeed.
 
We set off at 6am, and made our way to Southport. We arrived at just after 7, and had to queue to get into the 'advanced car parking' section - we did want to be on the beach, but a steward directed us to a field instead. It was a little disappointing as when we did make our way onto the beach later, another entrance was available for those who wanted beach parking - but the attendants gave us no idea despite us asking.
 

Loneliness: Coping With The Pitfalls As We Age


Loneliness needn’t be a big stigma anymore.
 
It’s a fact of life that we will sometimes struggle with stresses and anxieties as we age, but any notion of depression or anxiety is something that older generations don’t feel prepared to talk about. And so, we may have a parent or relative who lost a partner and so they have lost their whole world in many respects. This is hard for anyone to deal with at any age, so what is the best thing any single one of us can do if we ever get lonely?

Three Active Winter Sports Holidays To Try

Winter is a season that can often be depressing. One of the best ways to counter the winter blues is to keep yourself active. That could mean just ensuring you get to the gym regularly, but there’s another option you might want to consider: an active winter holiday.

Combining the feeling of getting away from it all that a holiday brings along with mood-boosting exercise could be just what you need to make winter a season to be enjoyed rather than endured. If you like the idea but are stuck for inspiration on which activities you should actually try, there here are a few options to consider..

 

A Skiing Holiday

If you want to stay away from the crowds, then it’s worth considering Andorra. The small, landlocked country is a haven for skiers, but without the usual crowds you might expect from Alpine regions. Andorra ski holidays cater to beginners and experienced skiers alike, so there’s always something to experiment with.

If you’d rather stay more conventional, then France has plenty of destinations to consider in the Alpine regions.

If you want to ski during the summer months, then you can always try the southern hemisphere. There are plenty of skiing locations in Africa, for example, including amazing indoor complexes in Egypt and Algeria.

How To Be Good To The Person Delivering Your Parcels

So, as a blogger.. I get a lot of parcels. A lot. Some days I miss them, I have to take a small stack of red cards to the post office much to their amusement. Over the last few months, I've had a pretty good insight into how the world of parcel delivery works - thanks to that, I'm sharing ways you can make your deliveries go smoothly.


Some of these are pretty self explanatory, but we just don't take them into consideration as we don't do that particular line of work each and every day.

Try have a house number!

You wouldn't believe how many people simply don't. Even if a number is on your wheelie bin in the front yard, its something. Otherwise, your driver has to work out where you are from your neighbours - and the problem only concertinas into more of an issue if they too don't have numbers. Not all streets are odds on one side, even on the other.. And not all streets are a continuous block of houses. Have some compassion! You can buy door numbers for £1.30 per number from Wilko.
 
On the same note..

Become More Spiritually In Tune This Winter


The winter is quite harsh on most people, myself included. Not only does it make us groggy in the mornings, but it can lead us into a cycle of behavior which suppresses our standard progressive drives. For example, it’s much easier to overeat as a form of comfort. It’s much easier to neglect our standard hobbies instead of getting in front of the television and fire and snuggling up to our spouses or pets to relax. However, that doesn’t mean that there’s any less need to work on ourselves in the winter. When we do feel like partying and attending outdoor events in the summer, the work we do here will go a long way in keeping us active and appreciative in our daily lives. Here are some tips for doing so!
