*Collaborative post.

Alcohol is a product that is almost everywhere around the world. That means that you will find consumers drinking alcohol everywhere you go.

Sometimes, as good as the drink can be, alcohol can be very destructive. People find it to be the best way to celebrate an event, enjoy their weekend, or deal with stress, among other reasons. However, statistics prove that alcohol could be more harmful than what meets the eye.

What makes quitting so difficult?

The terrible thing about alcohol is that it starts with a single sip. A user will then develop a habit, and before you know it, you form a pattern, which leads to severe addiction. When it gets to this part, addiction level, many people struggle to quit.

However, you can find help from various professionals. Other factors that may cause addicts to relent:

 

  •    They feel lonely
  •    It is their primary way of having fun
  •    Guilt, which leads to depression

 

If you get to a point where you require stopping this terrible habit, it is proper that revisit some of the benefits that come with a free-alcohol body. Here are some of the reasons that are causing most consumers to quit in 2019.

 

  1. They are focusing on becoming healthy

Alcohol is a drug, and therefore it contains toxins. These toxins are harmful to the body; hence, it would force the liver to overwork in eliminating the toxic substances out of your body.

Therefore, it means that your liver would deteriorate in the way it functions. Other body organs affected by alcohol addiction include the heart and the skin. If you are keen, you will notice that most people’s skin color changes after engaging in drinking.

Experts also say that most people tend to look younger once they learn how to stop drinking.

 

  1. They want to become mentally healthy

One thing that most drunkards will complain of the moment they wake up is constant headaches or a terrible hangover.

Remember, your body has been overworking itself. For that reason, your brain may not be as stable as usual. Once you quit drinking, your mind should get back in its normal state. It also assists you to focus best as well.

Understand that hangovers tend to create a craving for carbohydrates, which make it a challenge if you want to lose weight.

  1. They want to be emotionally stable

Well, many people tend to make rash decisions when they drink. Sometimes they can end up in trouble with authorities or even losing their most precious relationships.

Those who quit drugs get a second chance at improving themselves and the people around them. You could use your sobriety as an advantage of getting back your relationship with

your loved ones. Alcohol has a way of pulling you away from the people around you.

Besides, being sober comes with numerous benefits including the ability to make conscious decisions.

 

  1. The need to save money

Statistics show that people use a lot of money in binge drinking. Organizing a party alone can be expensive, mainly when you include alcohol in your budget.

Take a bold step and calculate the amount of beer that you take in a year. If you do an honest evaluation, you will notice that you waste a lot of cash. Rather than spending it, you could use it to make investments or educate yourself.

 

Conclusion

Deciding to quit takes courage. If you cannot do it, look for people who will stand by your decision. They should be people who overcame the urge or loved ones who would like if you quit this habit.

Once you do that, it is proper to get help from a qualified expert.

I am forever taking pictures thanks to my work and the kiddies. They love photos and we tend to take quite a bit. I take photos of the kids on my iPhone almost everyday. It is my way of preserving our memories and it is fun to look back to see how far we have come. Which is why I was super thrilled when the guys at Motif App  got in touch. For those who have never heard of this App, it offers people a quick way to produce personalised and professional Photo Books, Calendars and Cards.

Motif App

I got my hands on two Photo Books thanks to Motif. It was so easy to createthe Photo Books myself using the app. I downloaded the app from the App Store on my MacBook Pro. The whole creation process was pretty straightforward. I just followed the instructions on the App and selected the photos I wanted in the Photo Books from my MacBook Pro. It took me around 30 minutes from start to finish, and I got the Photo Books in the post within a week!

It is amazing how far technology has come. Back in the day, we had to go into a store to get Photo Books or even regular photographs printed professionally, but we don’t have to anymore. We can create these and more online thanks to great Apps like Motif.

How to plan a great weekend trip with kids

We love travelling and creating memories as a family. Which is why we try to explore our surroundings as much as we can, and travel internationally at least twice a year. So vacations and a weekend trip is always on the radar. We are yet to go anywhere this year for many reasons. However, travel is still on the cards. We just need to get organised and get a holiday booked (we are usually so last minute on travel related plans for many other reasons but we are getting better).

We have been on a few trips within the country this year. Our first trip was to Birmingham for 2 nights for new year. Then we visited Chelmsford Essex in February for a weekend away. And we spent the spring break in London and Essex. We were there for 2 weeks exploring the cities, and it was a lot of fun. I am kind of a mini guru when it comes to planning a weekend trip with kids. My twins are 5 years old, and we have been travelling around and outside the country since there were babies. So I kind of know what to do when it comes to comes travelling with children.

 

Here are some of my tried and tested tips –

 

Plan your trip well in advance

I am a very organised person, which is why I like planning our trips before we go. I always have a packing list so I don’t leave anything behind. There is also another list; I usually call this list the itinerary list. This itinerary list contains our plans for the actual trip. So places we plan to visit, prices for attractions, alternative attractions, travel routes, and so on. That way I know what to expect and I prepare myself and the kids for it. Planning in advance also allows me space out our activities so we are not too shattered. This preparation usually helps our trip go really smoothly.

 

Book child-friendly accommodation

When booking a hotel for our trips, we ensure we pick a child-friendly accommodation. So spacious rooms with beds for the kids is a must. A hotel with good internet connection, restaurant, room service and concierge to help with the luggage. I also like great customer service, which is why I make sure to check Trip Advisor’s website for reviews. That way we don’t get any nasty surprises.

 

Involve the kids

I make sure to get the kids involved in our trips. They know well in a advance where we are going and we plan to do there. I also get them involved in packing before the trip and activities while holidaying. I find that getting them involved gets them all excited and keeps them well behaved.

Have snacks and entertainment ready

I never leave the house for hours with the kids without snacks. Having snacks and some form of entertainment while out and about with children definitely helps. My crossbody bag comes in really handy for popping little snacks in, especially when we are on the move. They definitely make our trips go

 

Stick to the routine

We try to stick to our routine as much as possible when holidaying. Sometimes it is not possible at all to do so, but we try our best. Routines are so important with young children, and they help them behave better. Which is why we try to stick to ours when on holiday. Children thrive on a routine, so it is important to implement this even when on vacation.
