How to test your internet speed

*Collaborative post.

I have been working and studying from home for many years now and I won’t have been able to do that without reliable internet connection. I have been with my internet provider for a few years now and the reliable connection has made my jobs a lot easier. We all know how annoying it can be when your internet connection keeps dropping or when you need to upload a video on YouTube for example and the internet speed is not fast enough. It can take ages to upload a video on YouTube if you have a poor internet connection. Streaming movies can also be a pain with poor WiFi connection.

It took me awhile to know that I could actually test my network connection myself without having to speak with my provider. So I know many people are struggling with poor internet connection and have no idea how to test the internet speed. Testing your internet speed tells you if you are getting what you paying for in order. If you are, then it is all good, but if you are not, then you can complain to your provider so get a better deal or you could shop around and see what type of internet speed you could get for your budget. The last thing I want is paying for a service or being tied to a contract for a service I am not getting. If in doubt, it is best to Speedcheck!

14 Benefits of Investing in Your Health and Wellness

*Collaborative post.

If you’ve got health and wellness on your mind, you aren’t alone. Each year, millions of people choose to put more time and attention to their health and wellness routine.

It’s time to start investing in your health and wellness. Wondering why? Read on for our favorite benefits.

Benefits of Improving Your Diet

When it comes to health and wellness, diet is a go-to for many. While some may have been taught healthy eating at a young age, not all are so lucky. Here are a few of the many benefits of improving your diet:

1. Feel good: Have you ever eaten an unhealthy meal and felt sluggish? That’s probably because you aren’t getting the nutrients you need. When you eat nutritious fruits, vegetables, healthy proteins, and whole grains, your body gets the nutrients it needs to function. Combine these foods with all-natural, organic CBD oil and a multivitamin for the optimal dose of nutrients.

2. Stronger immune system: Those same nutrients your body needs to help you feel good also help your immune system. Foods rich in protein, like eggs, chicken, and turkey, and antioxidants like berries, purple cabbage, and bell peppers, give your immune system a boost.

3. Better gut health: No one likes tummy troubles. It turns out that consuming foods that are rich in probiotics, like yogurt, kimchi, and miso, in tandem with plenty of fiber can help protect your gut. That means more regular and healthier bowel movements.

4. Improved memory: Studies show that foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon and avocado can protect your brain against memory loss and potentially even dementia.

5. Stronger bones: As a kid, you were probably told that milk would make your bones stronger. That’s because it’s rich in calcium, which is central to bone health. You can get calcium from plenty of other foods, like broccoli, cauliflower, legumes, and more.

Benefits of Regular Exercise

Do you exercise for at least 30 minutes each day? If not, you may want to start. Here’s what exercise can do for you:

6. Improved mood: Exercise releases endorphins, a key chemical in making you feel good. Additionally, regular exercise has been proven to increase your brain’s sensitivity to serotonin, the chemical that makes you happy.

7. Stronger muscles: It’s a no-brainer that working out makes your muscles stronger. But fewer people know why that matters. Muscle strength is extremely important as we age. It keeps us upright, retains our posture, and protects us against injuries.

8. Stronger bones: Turns out, regular exercise can make your bones stronger, too. Just like calcium, it helps improve your bone density. This can protect you from osteoporosis as you age.

9. Smoother skin: Did you know that regular exercise can also improve your skin? The main component of visible aging is oxidative stress. This occurs when your body doesn’t have enough antioxidants to repair oxidative stress on your cells from free radicals. Regular exercise improves your production of antioxidants, which help prevent excessive oxidative stress.

10. Better sleep: Couldn’t we all use better sleep? In addition to burning off extra energy, exercise can also reduce the stress and anxiety that keeps us up at night.

Benefits of Mental Health Care

Mental health is the most oft-forgotten component of overall health and wellness. Fortunately, much work has been done to destigmatize mental health care. Here’s why you should consider your mental health, too:

11. Better quality of life: In the process of taking care of your mental health, you’ll tackle problems that make your life feel harder and less worthwhile. Once you start to address these problems, you’ll find that your quality of life improves.

12. Stronger relationships: Not only can seeking help for your mental health give you the opportunity to address problems in your relationships, but it will help you make more room in your life for nurturing your relationships, too.

13. Better sleep: Mental health care is another tool that can help you sleep better. By addressing and working through the problems you face, you’ll find that you have less racing thoughts that keep you up at night.

14. Improved concentration: Without so many thoughts and issues on your mind, your concentration and focus will improve dramatically.

These 14 benefits of investing in your health show just how important it is to take care of your body to feel better, be more productive, and live a more rewarding life.
