Caring for an Older Parent: 5 Concerns That Should Be at the Forefront of Your Mind

Looking after an older parent comes with numerous considerations and concerns. As we get older, we are put in a position where we feel a variety of conflicting emotions. Here are some of the practical challenges that you should consider when you are taking on this role. 

Putting Them in a Home or Not

Some people believe this is the best place for older parents because they have a wider range of care available, but there are others who don't want their parents to go into a nursing home because of the potential for nursing home abuse, which is a very natural concern. For anybody who's experienced some form of nursing home abuse, it's important to recognize there is support out there, like legal help. There are lawyers that work for a contingency fee, where they will only get paid if you get a favorable result, but to offset any of these concerns, you have to come to a conclusion with your parents that the nursing home is the best option. 

Helping Your Parents Stay Independent

If they don't want to go into a nursing home, you've got to decide together on the best course of action to help them stay independent. Many older people resist losing their independence, which could mean they end up putting others or themselves in danger because they can't manage everyday tasks. It's critical that we have honest conversations so we can understand their feelings about the care options available. You could come to a conclusion that they have part-time care, for example, a nursing assistant coming in and doing the basic house duties. This helps them achieve a certain level of independence and it allows you to have more peace of mind. 

The Health Issues

If a parent has health issues that cause aggression or behaving unpredictably, like age-related cognitive decline, this can be difficult to deal with. It's important for us to remember that this is not who they are because their behavior is beyond their control. But there are a number of strategies to cope with difficult behavior, and it's vital that we not take it to heart because this is not who they are. 

Understanding the Financial Implications

There will be an added cost to caring for your parents in terms of the nursing home fees or if you need to adapt your own home to look after them. It's important to ensure that everybody is financially supported which can be difficult to achieve. 

Looking After Yourself

Sometimes, we can feel that we just need to push on in order to be a more effective carer, and every birthday our parent celebrates means we slowly start to think about the inevitable conclusion at the end of it all, and this can have an impact on our mental health. If we are also looking after our own children, there is a lot to consider here as we need to realistically understand if we can look after the household and ourselves. Ensuring that you have the right support and self-care regimes can help you here.

Why You Should Have a Garden Office


 With the rise of people working from home it makes sense to do everything that you can to minimize your commute and work from home yourself. If you don't have to go into an office and you are able to stay at home and work, you should consider where you are doing your business. Are you working in the dining room where the children converse over breakfast? Are you struggling to find peace in your home study because of all the noise going on in the rest of the house? If so, you're not alone. 


Plenty of people who envision working from home don't consider the fact that they have to manage all of this noise around their clients and their children. It's not an easy thing to do, but it can't be done especially if you have custom wood sheds built in your garden to create your very own backyard office. It doesn't matter whether or not you are running your own business or if you are working from home for another company, you deserve a special space for you to flourish. Just because you're working from home doesn't mean your career has to suffer, so here are some of the reasons you should invest in your very own garden office.

  • You get your time back. It doesn't matter how long your commute is, working from home gives you back your time. Anytime where you are not sitting in traffic or working your way through public transport is time well spent. When you are having your working day in your garden, all you have to do is open the backyard door and head outside. It's an easy way to get to work, and is going to help you to spend more time with your family than on the road.

  • You're going to save money. The initial outlay of an outside office in your garden is going to cost you some money we're not going to lie, but it's going to be so worth it when you realize that this amount of money you spend is going to save you hundreds if not thousands throughout the year on petrol, toll roads, parking, public transport and more. The initial investment is also going to help you to add value to your property, so really you're building something for it to pay you back later.

  • Your space is your own. This is somebody else you could dress as you wish, it's how you like, take breaks and get your drinks when you want to, and the space is your very own. Collaborative workspaces are nice and everything, but when you have to share space with somebody else in the capital it is quite uncomfortable. This way, you get to quietly unpack your space and play your music or work in any way that suits you and nobody can tell you different.

  • You will improve your productivity. Knowing that your family is simply a few steps away is going to help you to remain productive. You know that once your working day is done 2 minutes later you're going to be with the family and having fun instead of spending all of your time missing out on bedtimes and sitting in traffic. In office gives you the chance to be able to interact with your family throughout the day, too, so when you have lunch breaks you can take the kids out to the park, or you can simply just spend time with your partner.

Planning Your Dream Wedding: Things To Think About and Do


 Your engagement is cause for celebration, and you have just entered the fascinating world of wedding preparations.  Following the steps that are listed below will direct you through the most important aspects of planning the wedding, which are those things that you must do before walking down the aisle.


image


1. Choose a date for the wedding.


Because without a date you will not be able to book any venues or vendors, setting the date for your wedding is the most important part of your wedding plans. When people find out that you are engaged, the question "When is the wedding?" is by far the most common one they ask. The time of year that you decide to get married is another factor that will have an impact on your wedding budget. For instance, if you are on a tight budget, you might want to plan your wedding during the winter months. This is because there is a wider selection of wedding vendors available during this time of year because there are fewer weddings in cold-weather regions. 



2. Create a budget.


Confronting one's financial situation head-on is the primary goal of budgeting. Some couples like to establish a general budget for their wedding, and if they stay within that range, they are content with the result. Some people are more careful about how they spend their money, and they use the all-powerful spreadsheet to plan out where every single cent will go. Creating a wedding budget is an excellent opportunity for couples to gain insight into one another's spending patterns and to discuss the aspects of the wedding that are most important to them. It is possible that the groom has his heart set on purchasing those designer suits for his groomsmen, or it is possible that the bride does not give a hoot about following the latest trend when it comes to her dress. In the end, you and your partner will have a budget to which you can hold each other and you will have gained a lot of insight into the other person.


3. Create a guest list.


It is time to decide who you want to invite to your wedding now that you have chosen the date and created a financial plan for the event. To get a sense of the size of your base, you should begin with the members of each of your families. These are the guests who are most likely going to send a response card for your wedding. Consider inviting a plus one for guests who are attending alone when calculating the total number of attendees for the event. When you begin searching for potential locations, you will need to have an accurate headcount of all of your guests.  Do not beat yourself up if you are unable to invite each and every person and their mother. 


4. Select guests for the wedding party.


The maid (or matron) of honor, the best man, the bridesmaids, the groomsmen, the junior bridesmaids, the flower girl (or girls), and the ring bearer are the members of the wedding party.  Generally, these are the attendees who are close to you, be they relatives or best friends, and will be standing by your side as you exchange your vows with one another on the day of your wedding. It is customary to buy thank-you gifts for each member of the wedding party; therefore, you should ensure that you include the cost of these gifts, as well as any other costs that you might be expected to pay, such as for your hair and makeup, your attire, and so on, in your budget.


5. Pay a visit to and reserve the venue.


When it comes to planning your wedding, you have reached the point where the real work begins. The ideal location for your wedding will be decided upon by taking into account both your finances and your guest list. Additionally, this will be the first time that you will begin to get an idea of how your wedding day will play out. Do you want to have the ceremony outside and the reception inside, or do you want to do it the other way around? Do you prefer to have a spectacular event with hundreds of guests or a small ceremony in a private location? Conduct some research into the various kinds of locations that could host your special event and determine which ones best fit your vision. Once you have a short list of potential locations, you can save yourself some time by calling each one to confirm that they are available on the date of your wedding. Finally, schedule a time to visit each location so that you can inspect the facilities and get immediate responses to any questions you may have. Some venues will allow you to schedule a special appointment during which they will set up a sample of their wedding decorations for you to look at. 



6. Arrange catering


When a couple has decided on a location for their wedding, one of the first vendors they reserve is the caterer. You will want to find out what your catering options are while you are touring your preferred locations, so ask about those! Some locations demand that you make use of their staff and may even give you a sample of the food on their various menu options. If you are allowed to hire your own catering company, then you will want to make this step the next priority because some venues also have rules about outside caterers. If you are allowed to hire your own catering company, then you will want to make this step the next priority. You want to be able to serve the food that the two of you enjoy most from a caterer that is within your price range and lives up to your standards.


7. Go dress shopping


This step is more important to some brides than developing a financial plan for their wedding. It is possible that finding the dress of your dreams will require you and your girlfriends to make multiple trips to the bridal shop. To try on all of the different designer gowns, you might even have to travel outside of town, to a store that is located several hours away. If you want your bridal stylist to be able to assist you in narrowing down the selection of dresses, it is helpful to have a general idea of what you want the dress to look like. You should put your trust in their expertise and knowledge of their inventory in order to select the perfect gown for your big day. They have seen hundreds, if not thousands, of brides in all kinds of dresses, so even if you do not know why something is not working, there is a good chance they will be able to address worries you did not even know you had. 


8. Book your photographer


 When looking to hire a photographer, such as Vittore Buzzi,  it is important to first examine the photographer's body of work and then meet with them in person to get a sense of their personality in general. Does their website and/or social media feature examples of their work in a variety of weddings for potential clients to peruse? Are they friendly and do they pay attention to what you require? Because you are going to spend the entirety of your wedding day with this individual, and because a good portion of your wedding plans will revolve around what you want the photographer to capture, it is going to be a long day if you are unable to get along with them or do not like their personality.


Because the market is so saturated with everyone from amateurs to professionals, finding a wedding photographer to hire can be a challenging and difficult task. There is nothing inherently wrong with cutting costs by hiring an amateur who is just starting out, with the exception that you run the risk of missing out on important moments being captured on the wedding day. Since no one is perfect, even professionals occasionally make errors, albeit much less frequently.


9. Hire a DJ


Your guests will take away an overall impression of your wedding day based on the atmosphere that the DJ creates for your reception. Because there is a predictable flow to the events that take place at weddings, no one wants an inexperienced DJ to be in charge of the show.  When your guests are ready to start having fun, a skilled DJ will step in and take control of the reception. Make sure to set up a meeting with each of the DJs on your short list so that you can get to know their personalities and discuss the ways in which they can assist you in planning the wedding of your dreams.

How One App Changed My Life


Balancing being a working mom is something that has been difficult for me ever since my daughter was born. Having to maintain a household on top of that was extra stress and while I am fortunate enough to have someone come clean and help with laundry every other week, I still have to handle the day-to-day pieces of life, such as emptying the dishwasher, vacuuming the floor, organizing my closet, and making sure dinner is on the table. Over the last two years I have found myself overly stressed with figuring out how to get it all done.


That’s where Fly Lady came in. I first learned about her and TikTok through one of my favorite accounts, Rosa Picosa. Rosa is a mom of two who, at the time, was following the Fly Lady Method of keeping the home maintained and the amount of overwhelm mom‘s experience low. I downloaded the free app and the rest was history.


The Fly Lady method tracks small habits daily, weekly, and monthly. On a day-to-day basis there’s a morning routine, afternoon routine, and evening routine, to keep the home running smoothly. Some of the things in these routines include making sure your teeth are brushed (I can’t tell you how many times I forgot to do this as a new mom), figuring out what’s for dinner before it’s actually dinner time, and making time for yourself to exercise and do your skin care routine. The daily tasks help me from keeping any one thing from piling up and causing me stress. For example, you do one load of laundry per day. However, I don’t have a load of laundry to do every day, but I do have it most days and this prevents me from having to spend Sunday doing five or six loads. 


The weekly tasks are known as The Home Blessing. These are things that really need to be done weekly throughout your home and it’s a good strategy to keep them from being built up and causing, again, more stress. Are you sensing a theme here? This includes vacuuming, mopping the floors, washing your bedsheets and taking out the trash. There are also weekly rotating zones. These are areas that don’t need to be cleaned every week, but should be cleaned on a monthly basis. For example, the zone this week is the kitchen. I cleaned out my fridge and freezer, got them organized, scrubbed the stove, organized my junk drawer, and a couple other necessities in the kitchen.


Having these checklists really helps me to reduce the overwhelm and decision fatigue I deal with on a daily basis. I don’t have to think about what to do next in order to keep my house in order; I just open the app and figure it out. Another thing I love about Fly Lady is she doesn’t expect you to spend all day cleaning. She encourages you to set a timer for just 15 minutes and spend 15 minutes focused on tidying up and another 15 minutes focused on the zone. As far as the weekly home blessing, people do it differently based on what works for them. I try to do it all in one day, however some people will do one task per day and that works for them. I highly recommend checking out the app if you are struggling to find the right way to take care of your household and are feeling overwhelmed on a daily basis. My day-to-day stress has reduced greatly since following this method and I hope it can help you too.

4 Ways to Generate Passive Income: How to Get Paid While You're Away

Whether you're just starting your career or looking to add a new source of income to your life, passive income should be on your mind. What is passive income? It's money you make without actively working. Sounds good, right? But how can you make that happen? It might take some work, but there are plenty of ways to generate passive income streams. The trick is identifying the best one for you and your situation. There are several ways to earn passive income, with varying degrees of risk and time commitment. This article will discuss four different ways that you can generate passive income so that you can decide which one is right for you.


Invest in The Stock Market


If you're someone who likes to be hands-on with their investment strategy, this is likely the best option for you. Many young investors have found success with a long-term strategy focused on the stock market. You'll want to start by getting familiar with the market and what companies are out there. One of the best ways to do this is to subscribe to a couple of investment newsletters. This will give you a birds-eye view of the market, which companies are growing, and why they're growing. 


Rent Out a Space on Airbnb


If you're willing to put in the work to create a space that people want to visit, renting out a space on Airbnb can be a great way to earn some extra income. The platform allows people to list their house, condo, or even a room for rent. You can make money by charging the people renting from you to stay in your place. If you have a spare room or an empty condo that you aren't using, you can list it for rent on Airbnb. Airbnb hosting is a great way to earn money passively as it requires minimal work for good money.


Cryptocurrencies


There's a chance that you may have heard of cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin and Ethereum, and their insane rise in value over the past year. The concept of cryptocurrencies is relatively new, but they've gained a lot of traction. Cryptocurrencies operate on a decentralized system powered by blockchain technology. This means it's not controlled by one central authority but instead operated by a network of computers worldwide. 


To keep track of what cryptocurrencies you currently have and what possible trades you may want to make, you should look into getting a cryptocurrency exchange platform, such as Binance. This will help you be able to manage and trade cryptocurrencies with ease. Unfortunately for cryptocurrency investors that live in the US, Binance is banned from usage. However, you can find information on how to use Binance in the US with VPN and start using the platform to keep track of your cryptocurrencies.


There are a few things to be aware of before diving into the world of cryptocurrencies:


  1. They are extremely risky. There are no guarantees that any of these investments will pay off.

  2. They require a large amount of research. You'll want to ensure that the company you're investing in has a sound business model and has been in operation for a while.

  3. Remember that there are tax implications associated with investing in cryptocurrencies.


Start a Blog


If you have a knack for writing, a blog can be a great way to earn some extra income. A blog can be as simple as writing about your life and your thoughts or something more specific, like a health blog or a food blog. It all depends on what you're interested in. You can earn money by working with advertisers or collaborating with other bloggers. If you're going the network route, you'll want to ensure that your blog is focused on a specific topic and that you're bringing in a decent amount of traffic. 


Conclusion


Passive income is something many dream about on a daily basis. There are a lot of ways to make money passively, but some are riskier than others. Investing in the stock market requires a lot of research and time but can potentially see a high return. Renting out space on Airbnb requires upkeep but can be profitable for those willing to put in the work. 


Cryptocurrencies can also be a great investment opportunity for those interested in online currencies. Finally, starting a blog has become an excellent way to earn passive income, but it takes time to build a following. Whatever method you choose to pursue passive income, make sure it's something that interests you. If you don't enjoy it, chances are you won't make a lot of money doing it.

5 Easy Ways To Modernize Your Home With Little Effort


 

Image credit

Redecorating your home can be daunting, especially if you are renovating an older home needing a lot of modernization. But, with the right approach, it can be an enriching experience. But you might need a little help to get there. Here are 5 easy ways to modernize your home with less effort than you think.


Remove outdated features

While your home represents you, it’s also a blank canvas. It can be a creative space to bring out your wildest dreams and explore your passions. So you mustn’t just leave all that potential behind. You can start by eliminating outdated features from your home. Now, you might not be able to remove an entire feature, such as a staircase, but you can at least remove outdated fixtures and fittings. For example, if you’ve got a popcorn ceiling, you can hire a Popcorn Ceiling Removal company to eliminate this obsolete decor trend. Or maybe you need to update electricity or plumbing for a more energy-efficient home.


Add natural elements

Nature can be a great addition to your home, but you must be careful about incorporating it. Natural elements can be helpful in many ways, but if you don’t use them carefully, they can become outdated and tacky. Natural elements don’t have to be significant. A simple potted plant is enough. Or you can use natural products in your design, think rope, twine, wood, and hessian furnishing and decor.


Add smart technology

Smart technology has become a common feature in many homes. It can be helpful in many ways, from helping you control your home to making your life easier. You can easily integrate smart technology into your home with smart devices, such as smart lighting, smart locks, or smart speakers. Using smart home features can help you save time. For example, you can create schedules for lights or turn off your coffee machine when you’re not at home. You can also set up activity alerts to know when your home security is triggered, like when someone enters your home.


Remove carpets

Carpets are often a mainstay in homes of the past, and while they can be beneficial in many homes and a significant aspect of the decor, modern trends lean towards natural wood flooring or tiles for a more up-to-date take on home flooring. Plus, carpets can hold a lot of dirt and bacteria and, over time, will wear down and look dirty. Alternative flooring can be cleaned easier. If you miss the comfort of material under your feet, simply add a few statement rungs where required.


Add a pop of color with accents.

Accents are a great way to add a pop of color to your home without spending much money. You can simply buy a vase with flowers, or you can make your own decorations with a few pieces of fabric, paint, and twine. Accents are often used as decorative elements in your home, but you don’t need to use them as focal points. Instead, they can be used to add a pop of color while still blending in with your other decorations. You can also use accents to pull double duty. For example, you can add a colorful light fixture so that it doubles as both an accent and lighting.


Wrapping up

Modernizing your home can be a great way to add color and creativity to your home without making major renovations. You can update your home by removing outdated features, adding natural elements, adding smart technology, removing carpets, and adding a pop of color with accents.

5 Ways to Make Sure Your Business is in Good Condition


 

https://unsplash.com/photos/5fNmWej4tAA 


Every single business owner needs to know that their business is in a good place in order to really achieve things. It’s also necessary to know where you are in case you want to grow and evolve the company. Starting a business really is a case of being dropped into the deep end – you never really know what’s going on until you gather lots of experience along the way. Here are just a few ways you can ensure that your business is in a good place, however: 

 

Ensure The Workplace Is Fully Operational 

 

If you’re in a workplace that is looking good and functioning properly, then you’re going to be in a business that is in the right place to thrive. Nobody wants to work somewhere that leaves them constantly looking over their shoulder. So, get people in to make sure it’s good to go. The likes of electricians, Professional Mold Removal, cleaners, and all kinds of other fundamentals should ensure you have a good setup. 

 

Make Your Online Presence Respectable 

 

A lot of what you’ll do in business is online. So it makes sense to ensure that your online reputation is at the best it could possibly be. When people want to know more about you or are curious about something in your field, they’ll head online and do a little research. If your website, communication, and social channels are all looking good, then that’s only going to be a positive for your business.

Work With The Likes Of Lawyers And Accountants 

 

If you have experts in law and in finance helping you out, then you’re not going to have many bloopers. A lawyer can check that everything you’re doing is fine and will protect you if legal action is taken. Accountants and other finance experts can advise you on what to do with your money and make sure you’re not making a mess. While this may seem like quite a simple thing to do yourself, the chances are that you’ll make mistakes along the way. The professionals will be able to spot holes that you couldn’t foresee – leaving you to focus on where your expertise lies.

If you possess a business for long enough, then the chances are that you’re going to run into a problem or two. You might even experience a serious disaster along the way. If you do this, then you have to make sure that you have business continuity and contingency plans. Your business needs to be able to get back on its feet when things go badly, of course.
