How To Choose The Right Career For You

Many people say when you find a job that you love, then you will never work a day in your life. Unfortunately, finding that perfect job is far from easy. From a very young age we’re asked what it is that we want to be when we grow up, and although “princess” and “dinosaur” are fair answers for a child, there comes the point when people expect a serious one. However, this isn’t a simple decision to make. After all, there are so many different careers out there for you to consider, and this is such a huge decision that could affect your entire life. To help you make yours, here are some great tips.

Know Your Strengths

Before you can look at any careers, it’s important that you consider the strengths, skills, and knowledge you already possess. After all, you can complete training and learn new things to get jobs, but it’s much easier for you and potential employers if you already know what you’re doing. If you have an accounting diploma, for example, then working as a chartered accountant might be ideal. You should make a list of all of the skills and qualifications you have and match them to jobs you like the sound of.


Find Your Passion

Everyone needs to work because everyone needs money, but you’ll find that life is so much more enjoyable if you find a job you genuinely like. Of course, it might be easier for you to become a chartered accountant, because of your diploma, but you have to understand that it’s one of the UK’s hardest jobs, so you’re going to need to be passionate too, or you won’t have the motivation required to get things done. Because of this, you should consider your interests and passions while looking at careers.

Take A Test

If you’ve done this work and still feel pretty confused, then you could take a career test. These tend to assess your skills, strengths, and passions, like what you tried to do above, but do so by asking you a set of questions that you need to answer in a set time frame. Once you’ve finished your questions, your answers are assessed, and you are generally given three or four career options that should suit you and offer fulfillment. You can find these types of tests easily on the internet, or could alternatively visit a career counselor for help.


Consider Your Options

Once you have a list of careers that match up with your strengths and interests, you need to consider all other aspects of your life to see which of these careers is most suited to you. If you’re a single parent, for example, then a job where you can work from home would be a lot more suited than one where you work long shifts and your hours change every week. Another important fact to take into consideration is driving. If you can’t drive, you’ll also have to consider how you’ll get to work every day, which might also affect your decision. If you’re struggling to make a decision, then seek help from a professional or loved one.


Choosing a career is a big decision, so take your time and find one that will make you genuinely happy.

The Benefits of Drinking Smoothies

I have recently fallen in love with drinking smoothies. And I can feel the difference already. I am not a fruit or veg lover. I struggle to get the recommended daily amounts, if any (don’t tell the kiddies). But I know I need to eat a balanced diet to be healthy. Which is why I went in search of how to get around my problem.

If you read my Father’s Day Gift Guide Post, then you would know all about this Andrew James Nutri-Fit Nutrition Extractor Blender. I have been using it for some weeks now, and I really like it. It is definitely a smart kitchen gadget to have around the house. I have made many cups of smoothies thanks to this blender.

The Benefits of Drinking Smoothies

So for those who do not know, here are some of the main benefits of drinking smoothies –


You get your daily allowance of fruits and vegetables

Like I said, I struggle to take any fruits and vegetables on most. And I am sure many others struggle to as well. It can be hard to get the recommended amounts in our daily diets. Which is why smoothies are so helpful. You can get the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables in smoothies easily. This would helps strengthen the immune system.


It is quick and easy

It is super quick and easy to make a smoothie. I get mine done within 5 minutes within any distractions, on most days. Making smoothies is easier and quicker than making even the easiest meals.


It improves digestion and helps with weight loss

Smoothies help improve digestion. This is great for anyone dealing with regular constipation and indigestion. Replacing a meal with a healthy smoothie can also help with weight loss.

I really like this banana and strawberry smoothie. It has a great taste. I have made it many times already, along with other smoothie recipes. And I am forever thinking of the next smoothie to make now. It has become a good habit. It is a healthy way to live and I am prepared to carry on making smoothies.

So far, I aim to make a smoothie a day. With the warm weather, this has been an easy target so far.

Dubai – My Favourite Travel Destination

Dubai is one of my favourite holiday destinations. We have visited Dubai 3 times now, and I am looking forward to planning our 4th trip. I think Dubai should be on every travel list. It is truly an amazing place to holiday. It is great for families with children as well as couples. We have visited the country as a couple and as family of 4, and we had lovely experiences on every trip.

Here are some of the reasons why Dubai is my favourite travel destination-


Great for shopping

The fashion lovers would love Dubai because it is a great place to shop. There is a yearly stopping festival that would suit the shopping lovers. This year it is happening from 26th December to 28th December. It is a fantastic shopping festival with loads of activities. We were lucky enough to experience the shopping festival 2 years ago. It was a great experience; one I would never forget. The amazing fireworks were beautiful to watch. And the jaw dropping bargains were great for my travel money.

A lot to see

There is so much to see in Dubai. From Jumeirah Beach, to the famous dessert, to Wild Wadi Water Parks, and the Gold Souk. There is somewhere to explore for everyone. You can’t be bored in Dubai regardless of how many times you have visited. There is always something new to see.


You get value for money

We get good value for money when we visit the Middle East. Some of the main tourist attraction can be a little pricey. But when it comes to things like taxis, food and drinks, and hotels, Dubai is reasonably cheap, unlike many other popular travel destinations.

Amazing weather

The Dubai weather is so beautiful. The best time to visit Dubai is between December and March. The weather is nice and warm then, unlike other months in the year where it could be unbearably hot. We visited Dubai last July and it was fun but dead hot. Almost too hot to do anything. I won’t be doing that again.

Have you visited Dubai before? What do you think of the travel destination? Please share your thoughts and experiences in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading. Have a lovely day.
