Perfect Love Tokens, To Show Your Man How Much He Means To You

When it come to buying love tokens, often men have it easy don’t they? They can just pop out, or go online and get one of the thousands of heart or love themed objects that are specially designed for women. But when us girls have to do the same for them, it often means putting in a bit more though and work. Luckily we have come up with a guide to help you solve the dilemma of what you get your boo as a token of your love. Just keep reading to find out more.

Something Personalized

A lovely way of showing how much room your other half occupies in your heart is by getting them a personalized gift. Happily, there are many shops that now specialize in things like this, so there are no longer difficult to find.

Particularly good ideas include wallets, necklaces, or rings with the coordinates of where you first met, got together, or got married on them.

Or another sweet male focused personalized gifts include cute word pictures containing all the things that they love, or the things that you love to do together.

Or if you prefer more of a scrapbook vibe then why not try a smash book? These are scrapbooks that are designed to be added to quickly and organically to make a fantastic document of a special time in your life. You can really put anything you like in there including pictures, napkins from his favorite restaurants, poems or other ephemera.

Love Letters

Ok, this might sound a bit corny, but you don’t have to start quoting Shakespeare or anything. Instead, you can just write about the qualities that you most appreciate in them. Or a particular time in which they supported you, and you want to say thank you for.

You can even get a whole pack of cards and envelopes and just put one good thing about them on eac. Then send them one by one through the post. Which is not only adorably sweet and romantic, but will also be a lovely treat for their ego as well.

Jewelry

Now, if you would prefer to let the gift do the talking rather than your own words you might want to consider getting your bae some jewelry. Jewelry is a great love token as its expensive, so it shows that you value them, and it made from precious metal which will stand the test of time. Just like your relationship.

Of course, picking of jewelry items for guys can be fraught with difficulties as it is important to get them an item that fits in with their personal style.

So ask yourself whether they wear rings, necklaces, or cufflinks before you spend all of your money on something. Another good test is to see if you can picture them wearing it? If so it’s probably a good bet.

Remember too, that chunky jewelry like the items available on Amazon is always more masculine. So is likely to be received better, and don’t forget; a little bling looks good on men and women alike.

Gift basket

If you are looking for a physical gift that says I love you, but that also doesn’t cost the Earth, then there is nothing better than a gift basket that you have put together yourself.

This works particularly well if you are in a long distance relationship as you can send it to your partner’s location and remind them of you and home.

But what thing should you include in such a basket? Well, first of all, think favorites. Pack it with their favorite candy, chips, and sodas. Then think about things that you can share together like reading a book, or a game that you can both play.

The Benefits Of Living Well

There are certain things that you can do in your life to help you get to a state of both physical and mental health which will benefit not just you, but the family that you have around you. If you have children, taking care of yourself ahead of everybody else should be the priority. While this sounds like quite a conflicting thing to think about, you need to consider yourself as their number one. Without their number one in full working order and available to cater for their wants and needs, they won’t be able to thrive as they need to.

Exercising for Physical Health

It’s hard to catch a break when you’ve got kids, especially to get out and do exercise that will count towards anything. You need to set yourself time, a routine and a goal to work towards in order to get yourself feeling as fit as you can. However, this isn’t necessarily the case all the time. There are certain things that you need to make provisions for, sure, but unless you have an amazing source of childcare and are willing to work that amount of time into your weekly lifestyle, it’s just not an option for the majority who are wanting to do it. This doesn’t mean that it’s completely unattainable. There are classes available for you to do with children in tow, no matter what age they are. Being able to keep up with them physically is something that counts for a lot when you’re a parent – not just for the fun factor, but for their safety and wellbeing in certain situations as well.

Exercising for Mental Health

Exercise doesn’t just have to be for your physical fitness – it can go a long way in helping cope with certain mental health conditions as well. There are sports and exercises that you can do that are crucial in helping you switch off from whatever exacerbates any illness you have; whether it’s stress about a situation, outside factors that contribute towards how you’re feeling or even just something that fills your mind with no idea as to why it’s doing it. A lot of people have commented on being able to “switch off” whilst running, which can be a great reason to take it up it for nothing else. This will help benefit your mood not just with yourself personally, but whatever is reflecting onto your children. The stability of your mental health is not just something that you go through on your own; those around you are all a part of it too, just as would be the case with physical health. Exercising is only one way to get yourself back on track, and should never be used as the only method if you think that it’s beyond a stage where exercise alone can help.

Eating Well – With Your Family

It’s often said that eating healthily when children are involved is impossible, but that’s not true. Children grow up with what they are accustomed to, and if you are introducing things including sugar, fat and that are easily accessible (such as drive thru food) into their diet, then of course they are going to expect it to be the norm and want it all the time. Most of the time, an aversion to fruit and vegetables is more fear of the unknown than a genuine dislike for what they’re being presented with. Getting into a good eating routine with your children doesn’t only benefit them, but will help you with your own healthy eating habits as well. There are things that you can use to help you along your fitness journey; there’s a huge buzz about ideal shake for many reasons, with fitness supplements becoming the thing to turn to when stuck in a rut with your current plan. We have gotten to the stage of development and research where these products aren’t produced just for money-making profit anymore and are showing proven benefits to being taken alongside a healthy diet and exercise.

Drinking More – Helping Your Family

Water is so abundant in our modern world that it’s being taken for granted completely. We cover up the thirst signals that our brains are sending to us and often mistake them for hunger signals instead, leading to overeating. This in turn adds on the pound that we don’t necessarily need or want. It can easily be avoided simply by drinking more. It is recommended that we drink eight ounces of water at least eight times a day, but this is dependent on the weather outside. If it’s hot or edging towards summer, aim to drink a bit more. There are certain water bottles, apps and aids that you can get to help remind you to drink and edge you on in your journey throughout the day. Although it seems like a task that should be second-nature to us, if you have gotten yourself into the habit of not drinking the required amount that you should per day, there is more chance that it will be harder for you to accomplish. This doesn’t mean that you should give up – the benefits of drinking more water go far beyond weight loss. Your brain is 80% water, and your focus and concentration has a lot to attribute to this fluid. Not only will you feel the benefits in being able to get to work mentally, but your energy levels should rise with the more water that is consumed. As it’s something that you don’t necessarily have to invest a lot of money in to try, as is the case with quite a lot of things these days, give it a go and see how you feel – what have you go to lose?

How To Shape Up Without Overstretching Your Finances

A cupboard full of exotic ingredients. Some newfangled fitness devices. A fashion-forward leisurewear collection. Healthy living can come at a cost. However, it doesn’t always have to be this way. Getting fit doesn’t always have to overstretch your finances. There are loads of ways you can adopt a healthier lifestyle without paying the price. Here are some handy hints to help you get healthy without breaking the bank.

Working out for less

Inexpensive activities

These days, you can’t go anywhere without reading articles about fitness or seeing giant images of gym-honed models. Exercise is so unbelievably good for you, but it doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s often assumed that you need to fork out a lot of money to get in shape, but that’s simply not the case. For starters, the gym is not the only place to get fit. A gym membership can set you back a considerable amount of money per year, but there are alternatives to taking out membership. You could pay as you go or you could try other activities. Jogging, for example, won’t cost you a penny. You could also try swimming at a local pool, which is likely to carry a small charge, or cycling. If you don’t have a bike, you could search for a second hand one online, and you may be able to pick up a bargain. Team sports are also an inexpensive way of exercising. If you’re keen to exercise alone, fitness DVDs are a great, cheap option. All you need is a mat and some light weights.

Setting up a home gym

One way of working out for less is to invest in some home gym equipment. Once you’ve made the initial payment, you won’t have to worry about paying a monthly membership fee or a renewal fee if you want to prolong your membership. You can exercise whenever you want, and you’ll save time on getting to and from the gym. You don’t need to kit out your garage with the latest mod cons and a suite suitable for an NFL pro. Think about which machines you like to use at the gym, and whether you actually need expensive equipment. Some people like to base their workouts on stretching, aerobic activities, and lifting weights. If this is more your cup of tea than pounding the treadmill for hours, you could save yourself even more. If you are looking for some home gym equipment, the Internet is a really useful resource. If you have a make and model of exercise bike or elliptical trainer in mind, for example, type it into the search box, and see how much you could save. It’s also worth looking in discount stores and holding out for promotions. If you’re not fussed about having a brand new bike, pay some garage sales a visit or search online for new and used auctions.

Basic lifestyle changes

Today, we tend to rely on our cars to get around. Switching to walking is a lifestyle change that will not only help you shape up. It will also help you to trim your expenditure on gas. Start walking or taking your bike to work or leave the car at home if you fancy popping to visit a friend or grabbing a coffee.

Healthy eating made more affordable

When you’re putting the effort into your workouts, you don’t want your diet to let you down. There’s a belief that healthy eating is expensive, and in some cases, this can be true. You see a lot of superfoods and fad diets hitting the headlines these days, and foods that are hard to source often carry a hefty price tag. The reality is that you don’t need to make drastic changes to your diet to make it healthier and more nutritionally valuable. If you don’t have the budget to survive on avocados and chia seeds, don’t worry.

Saving money on fruit and vegetables

Fruit and vegetables form the basis of a healthy diet, and health experts recommend a minimum of 5 portions per day. If you’re feeding a family, the cost can soon add up. If you’re keen to get your 5-a-day without spending a fortune at the store, there are ways of saving money. Buying frozen produce is a really good idea. You can also take advantage of multi-buy offers, but take care not to buy things you don’t need. If you never eat apples, don’t buy them just because they’re on offer. Look out for fruits and vegetables that you do normally eat, and see if you can find deals that will actually save you money. Making smoothies is a great way to boost your vitamin intake on the cheap. Once you’ve got a blender, all you need is the ingredients, and you’re good to go. You only need small quantities, so a little will go a long way. If you’re looking for simple, tasty smoothie recipes, have a look at Good House Keeping’s recipes. If you’re used to buying smoothies from cafes, you’ll save a huge amount by making your own at home

The cost of fresh produce varies significantly depending on which store you choose. If you prefer to shop at a store where prices are higher, do your basic shop and then go elsewhere for your fruit and vegetables. It’s also worth checking out local markets and independent stores, as they may charge less.

Lowering the cost of a weekly shop

If you’re on a health drive, your weekly shop is probably the first thing you alter. When you’re planning a trip to the store, write a list. Work out what you’re going to have for your lunch and dinner every day, and write down the ingredients you need. Stick to the list, and try not to be swayed by other items or flash sales on products you’d never normally use. If you’re not very good at keeping track of what you’ve spent or you tend to fill your cart with items you don’t need, try online shopping. This is a quick and convenient way of getting what you need, and you’ll have a running total on the screen.

If you want to buy meat, poultry or fish, it’s worth visiting the store close to closing. This way, you can get discounted items, which are going out of date. If you freeze them, you can eat healthily on a much tighter budget.

Healthy eating at work

When you’re at work, it can be really easy to rely on the easy options, which are sometimes a lot less healthy than meals you could rustle up at home. Even foods like sandwiches are wraps can contain hundreds of calories when you buy them from a shop. It can also be tempting to cave in and add some chips or a chocolate bar when they’re lying there on a display looking alluring. If you prepare lunch at home, you’ll save money, and ensure that you’ve got a nutritious meal to enjoy. You’ll save yourself precious minutes in the day, and you won’t have to test your willpower at the checkout.

Many of us want to be healthier, but sometimes, there’s a worry that health living is costly. It’s true that you can spend a lot of money on gym gear, membership, and cooking up exotic feasts. However, there are also lots of ways you get in shape and improve your health on a budget. Don’t let money hold you back when you’re putting your health first.

Helping Children Navigate The Tides Of Change

Change isn’t easy to deal with. That’s true whether you’re three, or sixty-three. There’s no denying, though, that children find change harder to deal with than most adults. That’s probably because they’ve had to deal with less of it in their short lives. Plus, everything seems a lot larger when you’re little. Especially those big scary changes! Instead of shying away from change, it’s your parental responsibility to help them process and adapt. When handled in the right way, change is essential for helping your children to grow. And no, we don’t mean out of their clothes, again! We are, of course, talking about them growing emotionally. So, how is the right way to deal with change in a child’s life?

A lot of a child’s fear of change comes from a lack of understanding. Children think in simple terms. If they were happy with how things were, they might be unable to see why anything has to change. That’s why it’s important you explain to them what’s happening and why. The way you go about this will vary depending on the change. It may be that you and your partner are divorcing. Or, maybe the change is something as simple as moving schools. Or is a relocation on the cards? One thing’s sure, you don’t want to wait until the moving company is there to explain what’s happening. Make sure you keep your child informed throughout, whatever the change is. Information is critical. Explain what’s happening at every stage. The more your child knows, the less chance of them getting an unpleasant surprise.

HAVE YOU GOT THE ANSWERS?

Children are inquisitive by nature. It’s how they learn. After you’ve explained, be ready for the questions your kids might throw at you. With change, those endless ‘why,’ queries take on a whole new meaning. Try to consider what your child will ask before they ask it. That way, you can give an appropriate response. You may be busy planning whatever has caused the change, but always be available for questioning. Never brush away a query or reply with ‘we’ll talk about it later.’ Keeping the lines of communication open is essential. Not having their questions answered will leave your kids full of doubt.

BE SUPPORTIVE

It’s also important to support your children’s emotional needs. When you become a parent, you made a commitment always to put your child first. If you’re separating, you may feel as though you have more important things to worry about. The simple answer is, you don’t. Your child’s emotions come before your own. You may feel like the injured party, but you made a conscious choice. Your kids didn’t. Even when you feel like falling apart, keep it together for them! If the change is something like a new school, support them by reassuring them. Try to focus on exciting aspects, like new friends and a new school uniform. Distracting them in this way will stop them worrying about the scary stuff.

Boosting Baby’s Brain

Babies are like little sponges. Everything you say and do with them stimulates their senses and has the ability to create new brain cells and boost their brain power now and in the future. From simply smiling and laughing with your baby to playing games, every move you make is having an effect on your baby’s brain, which means that if you pay attention and implement specific activities, you can increase the power of your actions and make your baby smarter. Here are some actives you and baby can do together that will boost his or her brain at the same time:

Make Eye Contact

Researchers have found that making eye contact with your baby when they look at you and smiling or talking with them will encourage interplay between the two of you, help to build a connection and boost the part of their brain that deals with emotions and relationships.

Reading

Reading to your baby from an early age is one of the best things you can do if you want to boost their brainpower and help them grow into a smart young child. When reading, try to make it a sensory experience by rocking your baby and showing them pictures, even if they’re too young to really notice.

Touch

Touching your baby is something you probably do instinctively and without even thinking, but it is so important to the development of your child. Not only does regular touch help your child to become more self-aware, but it also helps to build knowledge of personal boundaries as they get older.

Play

Playing with children is a great way to teach them about interacting with their surroundings. For example, one of the first games babies intuitively play is the one where they throw their food on the floor and mommy, or daddy picks it up. This teaches them about cause and effect and the world in which they live.

When playing games, babies love predictability and repetition. There are lots of toys and games aimed at babies, which can offer this and help to develop their brainpower – just browse baby toys for games and objects that have pulling strings, repeating sounds and colors, etc., to help baby make the most of their play time.

Bathing

If you can stimulate your baby’s senses, you can help to boost their brain development. The feel of warm, soothing water and the skin to skin contact between parent and child is a great way of doing this, so try to make your baby’s bathtime as fun as possible for your little one.

Talk

Just talking to your baby as you would anyone else will help to boost their vocabulary, build a strong family bond and enable them to express their wants and needs, even in a nonverbal way to start with. The more new words you introduce to your child, the better their own vocabulary will be by the time they reach the age of 3!

Aromas

Introducing your baby to new aromas is another great way to stimulate senses and give them new experiences that will boost their brain. Pick some flowers and let them play with them, take them to the park, give them a massage with lavender oil – do whatever you can to stimulate their sense of smell.

You’ve Been Exercising Wrong All This Time

Losing weight is a common challenge for many women, whether you are trying to correct the indulgence of the Christmas season or you want to fit into your pre-pregnancy clothes again. Losing weight is never easy, especially because most people do it wrong. From under-eating, which slows down your metabolism and reduces fat burn, to hormonal imbalance, there are plenty of good reasons why you are not getting slimmer despite all your efforts. While this can be very frustrating, the only solution is to understand how your body functions to work with it instead of against it. But, there is more than dieting in a weight loss process. There is an element of workout and fitness that helps your body burn fat and build muscles. Have you considered that you might be starting your weight loss journey with the wrong workout for your goal? If not, it’s time to look at new options and to understand what the right workout can help you to achieve.

The Workout Dilemma

The first question that many weight loss candidates ask is: Which workout should I pick? Indeed, the choice is vast, and there are plenty of famous names on the fitness market. For many, registering to their local gym can be a solution that will save them from picking any at home workout. This could be the easiest way to avoid any difficult decision! But not everyone enjoys going to the gym as it can be expensive, demotivating and time-demanding. Sometimes, all you want to do with to stay at home and find a way to exercise from the comfort of your home. This is where workouts come in handy. You will find that many workout plans focus on HIIT – high-intensity interval training -, Tabata protocol workout – which is a way of turning your body into a fat-burning engine in only a matter of minutes -, and afterburn – this means that your body continues to burn energy and fat long after the workout. Some workouts promise all that but fail to deliver, and some have highly positive results. The best way for you to choose an effective workout is to narrow it down by researching reviews. As a rule of the thumb, a good workout doesn’t have to be expensive: It should require payment to access the exercises, but you shouldn’t have to pay at every step of the way. Additionally, you will need to find workouts that are not only challenging but also motivating, as keeping engaged with the exercises is key to developing healthy fitness habits.

Find Out The Right Workout For You

At the core of every weight loss journey, there’s not a workout regime, not any workout but the right workout for you. This could be confusing at first. What is indeed the right workout for you? Specialists have agreed on three body types that all require a different approach to fitness. The endomorph type is a body that is characterized by a preponderance of fat, while the ectomorph is naturally skinny and lacks fat and muscle tissues. The third body type, the mesomorph tends to have a well-developed musculature, even with a little weight. Use a test to figure out your body proportions, or maybe start by defining your body shape: Pear, apple, boyish, and hourglass. Each shape is defined by your genetic material and therefore will response to a different mix of fat-melting cardio and toning moves. Tightening up your curves or defining your shape with the right workout is now just a matter of honesty about yourself and your body.

Embrace Your Workout Program

Finally, you might have chosen the appropriate workout for your shape and have made an educated choice based on real reviews, but you need to accept that it takes time to see the effects of your hard work. Remember that your workout doesn’t need to be one out of a boot camp training program, you can pick something achievable that combines cardio and strength for you to repeat during the week. What matters is to be able to stick to your fitness program and to invest time and efforts in it to develop long-term results. Most workouts come with a specific diet plan, which may not be too exciting but has been defined by specialists who know what your body need to maintain its strength while burning fat. As most programs don’t require much longer than 6 or 8 weeks, this is a small concession for permanent weight loss.

Grow With Your Child

As parents, we know that frugality is not a word that we can thoroughly engage with during the first few years of our child’s life. There is always something that will need to be purchased, no matter how hard we try and save on our money and cut back our spending. Once our children are finished with one thing, they’re straight on to another; it’s unfortunately just the way that life works.

There are things that we will just need to keep replacing until our children hit teenage years or until they outgrow the need for them. But what are these things, and how much do we need to set aside for them as they grow?

Beds

Moses baskets, cribs, cots, co-sleepers – whatever you have and whatever you are using right now, it will eventually need updating. Moses baskets typically last up to 5 or 6 months depending on how big your baby is, and they can then be transferred to a cot. Or you could cut out the moses basket/crib and go straight to the standard baby cot. It is recommended that your child sleeps in the same room with you until they are at least 6 months old to prevent the risk of SIDS, and so you may find it is easier to have a smaller sleep space for them until they go into their own bedroom. The good thing to know is that once they are in their cot they can stay in there for a couple of years, until they outgrow it and will need either a toddler bed or a single bed. Stores are cottoning on that it’s becoming tedious to keep replacing beds, so many like IKEA are offering extendable beds to solve the problem of constant replacement. This can cost anything from a couple of hundred across the years to thousands depending on how much you want to spend on a good night’s sleep.

Car Seats

The good thing to know about car seats is that eventually, your child will not need them. The other thing worth noting is that you can get car seats that are set in stages once they are out of the car seat that they have used from birth. Check to see which is the right one for you and your child by taking down details of how tall they need to be and how much they need to weigh to go into a particular seat – always assess the safety first. You can look online for baby seats reviews to see what suits your budget and your lifestyle. They come in all shapes and sizes nowadays, offering everything from ease of access to get your child out of the car to reclining seats for those kids who can’t help but doze off on a short journey.

Clothes

This is the most obvious, but at least when you get to a certain point in teenage years you won’t need to keep buying for size – only to keep up with the latest trends that are cropping up. This is one thing you can be frugal on, and asking friends and family for hand me downs should not be frowned upon; where else are the clothes going to go and what else are they going to be doing? It’s better that they’re put to good use!

Taking Flight with Super Wings now at Walmart! #SuperWings

 My kids often get hooked on tv shows and then want to buy every toy out there. In the case of Super Wings however, it was the other way around!

My three year old Jax loves Transformers! Unfortunately they are made for older kids and he’s easily frustrated by them. He loves the Super Wings toys because he can transform them from plane to bot all by himself! There is no greater sense of an accomplishment than a three year old doing something all by himself!

Once he was introduced to the toys, I showed him the show which is available on Amazon Prime, NBC, Sprout and the Super Wings YouTube channel. Even at three Jax is all about YouTube thanks to his older brother and sister so that’s where he chooses to watch on his iPad. He loves it and so do I! Of course he also loves to star in his own videos!

I like the spirit of teamwork and friendship they have while working together to solve problems. I also appreciate the emphasis about learning about different cultures that is so important in the world he is growing up in!

While we loves all the toys, the Super Wings 5″ transforming character is definitely his favorite which works out well for playing with his best friend who prefers the little Transform-a-Bots that come in a four pack!

Super Wings

The Vroom n Zoom is another fun one with the capability to zoom off on its wheels powered just by your kid. You just have to love a toy with transform feature! Just fun and imagination to guide the way with Super Wings!

The CiPU Baby Diaper Bag has Everything for Baby AND Mom! #CiPU

With three kids I have gone through my fair share of diaper bags, and then some! I could just never find one with everything I needed! I felt like the Goldilocks of diaper bags! This one’s too big, this one’s too small, this one’s ugly, this one’s cheap, this one has no style and this one has nowhere for MY stuff! Well finally I found the one that’s just right!

The CiPU diaper bag has literally everything I need for baby AND me! It was like Christmas morning opening each bag and compartment to find the hidden treasures within! I don’t know about you but I don’t like to carry a separate purse when I am lugging around a diaper bag, a baby and whatever else they need! I only have two arms!

This set includes a double pouch and hand carry pouch, either one that can be used as your purse. I have used both depending where I am going and what exactly I need.

I don’t carry a lot in my purse. It’s basically my wallet, phone and keys so even though the hand carry pouch is small, it fits everything I need!

For those that like a bigger purse, the double pouch works as a purse as it has more space. I personally like this pouch for wet/dirty clothes. it’s nicely lined and can keep those items away from the clean items in the bag! We have all experienced the dreaded blow out and need a place for those nasty clothes!

The set also includes a water proof diaper pad to take care of that messy change!

When it comes to attention to detail, this one has it all. It really is the little things that makes all the difference in the world! I love the pouches on either end of the big bag for baby AND for mommy to have a drink! What I’ve found with most bags is that its a shallow pouch where things tend to fall out. This ones tall and deep enough to hold a standard water bottle or baby bottle without dumping them!

The inside also has tons of space! Usually I shove a few things in and then can’t zip the bag shut. This one has a large capacity for everything you need! My favorite part has to be the pockets. Pockets galore to keep everything organized! It even has the zipper pocket for those things that need a little privacy!

Another neat little feature is the adjustable buckle. I am constantly digging through purses and bags in search of my keys. Somehow they always seem to slip beyond my reach. With this buckle, it stretches up to 63cm so your keys are right at your fingertips! No more lost keys!

If you are out on the go and want to hang the bag from your stroller, the included aluminum hook makes this a snap!

Everything is adjustable, comfortable and set to fit all of your baby’s needs AND yours as well! The CiPU Diaper bag really has it all!

Double or even triple glazed windows will make your home much more energy efficient. Every time you put the heating on, it’s not simply escaping. Since power companies burn fossil fuels, every time you waste heat it means these fossil fuels are damaging the environment for no good reason. It also means that you’re paying over the odds on your fuel bills too. If your windows are due for an upgrade, go with the most energy efficient versions you can find. Triple glazing is something to consider, although it’s costly to fit it will save money on energy in the long run. If you don’t have the funds available to make such a large purchase, a home equity loan could be an option. This allows you to use some of the value in your home to borrow money- and can be worth it since this is then being invested back into the property.

Eco Friendly Improvements For Your Home

Loft and Wall Insulation

As with the windows, if every time you heat your home, it’s escaping through the walls and loft it’s bad for both your wallet and the environment. There are many government schemes offering free loft insulation, do some research and see if you qualify. If not, paying a company to come out and do it is your best bet. Insulation will be added to your loft to prevent heat escaping through the roof. Cavity wall insulation involves filling the gap between the internal and external walls with an insulating material.

Solar Panels

Another way to make your home kinder to the environment, reduce your bills and use less power generated by fossil fuels is to have solar panels installed. Solar power is completely renewable meaning they’re a green option. In the last couple of years, a record-breaking number solar panels were installed each day around the world making the fastest growing electricity source. You can get on board and do your bit simply by having some panels installed on your roof, and it’s something that all homeowners can do. Again in some areas you might be entitled to free or reduced solar panels due to government incentives so find out what’s available to you. Solar panels are

Water Well

Just like gas and electricity companies, water companies burn fossil fuels which are bad for the environment. Sanitising water and making it safe to drink requires using a lot of power. You can avoid this and do your bit for the environment, as well as make you home more eco-friendly by having your own water well installed in your garden. Water from a private well is safe to drink, as it will not have been contaminated with any surface water. On the plus side, it also doesn’t contain fluoride and other chemicals that are added to mains water meaning it’s a healthier option. You’ll need to have the water quality assessed every year to check that everything is ok but aside from that it’s completely hassle free. It means you don’t have to worry about things like hosepipe bans since your water isn’t coming from the mains supply.

Eco-Friendly Renovations

If you’re thinking of renovating your home, there are a number of ways you can be kinder to the environment. First is to use recycled materials. Look online to see if anyone is getting rid of anything in your local area, not only is this more eco-friendly than buying new but it will also save you some money as well. Secondly, recycle any materials you no longer need. If you’re knocking down walls, for example, someone else might be able to make use of the bricks for hardcore or filling in a hole in their garden. Using environmentally friendly paints, those with low VOC levels is another thing you could consider. These don’t release volatile chemicals that damage the environment and ozone layer, so is another small way to do your bit. The more people choose these kinds of products; the more demand is created for them. So opting for the environmentally friendly versions of things is better long term too.
