Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in the same job for a long long time. It may be that we are good at that job so feel we owe it to ourselves and the company to stick at it. However, if you don’t love what you do it can start to affect our motivation, work ethic, and certainly our happiness and mental health. You should look forward to going to work and passionate about what you do for a living. There is more to life than just paying bills and going to work. Sometimes we may just be stuck at work out of habit, never having thought about the different opportunities out there and different avenues we can take. A lot of people also think once they get past a certain age that they are kind of stuck where they are. But this isn’t the case. If you were thinking of moving jobs but didn’t and carried on in 10 years you will be doing the same thing. If however, you move into something you enjoyed, 10 years down the line you will be thriving and progressing in a career that you are passionate about. Here are a few ideas on what you can do to change your career path. 

Make Money On Social Media

The rise of bloggers and influencers has come and people can make money on social media now. It is a very good way to make money if you are successful and some people have made millions just from promoting and growing an audience on social media. It may seem odd but it is in a way a form of marketing. If a business only has 3000 followers on social media but they can pay a fee for someone with 100,000 followers to promote their product to that many people then it works out well for the company. In some scenarios, companies have sponsored a social media influencer to promote something and then sold out within hours. That isn’t always how it goes but it is certainly one of the forms of marketing used in most businesses now. They know the influence social media stars have and what a positive impact they can have on a business. 

Look At Starting Your Own Franchise

If you have the money to invest in a franchise you can not only start a new career but you can be your own boss. You can choose your own hours and what type of thing you go into. It could be food-related, having your own restaurant or food stand. It is a great way to get family involved to help set up as well. There are so many options like car repair and even things like drug testing businesses where you can run testing labs and all different things. You can even take drug and alcohol testing courses to make sure you are successful in your new business venture. Starting up a franchise and becoming your own boss can be extremely rewarding. You won’t need to worry about not having time off for important family events, your kid’s plays and birthdays, and anything else you want to experience in life. You will be the boss so you can leave your trusted staff to do the job and enjoy life more. 

Help Out A Worthy Cause

If you are looking to change your career but also give back in a way you could look at getting a job as a fundraiser. There are all sorts of businesses like hospitals, nonprofits, and many more that need to raise money for their business to survive. They will also pay someone to come in and help them do that. Depending on the company you work for it can be quite a high-paying job. It would be your job to come up with inventive, creative, and cost-effective ways to help raise money to keep things afloat. Whether that is through a big ad campaign or something smaller like bake sales, car washes, and different things that people can do within their community. Not only will you be changing your career for the better but you will also be making a huge difference for a good cause and helping people who need it. 

These are some of the ideas of things you can do if you feel like you are at a point in your life where you need to start making changes. Changing your career can seem scary but can be so worth it.

*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.

 

Back to nature with houseplants

I played around with the idea of getting a houseplant for months so it was lovely to finally get one some days ago. My houseplant got delivered over the weekend and I am now officially a plant mum. There were loads of options available when I went shopping for my first houseplant. I have never had one before so I had to really read up about each plant and decide on the best indoor plant for us.

Back to nature with houseplants

After hours of research, I decided to go with one first to see how we get on and add get some later depending on how well I get one with the first plant. I needed an indoor plant that wouldn’t need a lot of nurturing since this is all brand new for me. I needed a houseplant that would thrive on neglect pretty much.

Snake Plant

After shopping around for a bit, I settled up the beauty right here. This Snake plant is a non-fuss tropical plant. It has thin, upright leaves with irregular banding. This houseplant is great for any room in the other including the bedroom. It filters out toxins in the air including benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and toluene.

Research has revealed the amazing benefits of having plants in the home. They are too numerous to mention here in this post, but some of the main benefits are listed below –

They look pretty and add life

Plants instantly change the look of any space for the better. I love how this plant has beautified my room. Houseplants are great for adding life to a room.

Filters out toxins

Like I mentioned above, some plants are really good for filtering out harmful toxins in the air. This houseplant is one of those amazing plants that work overtime cleaning the air, increasing humidity, and producing oxygen.

Boost your mood

Plants are great for boosting your mood. If you are looking at ways to improve your mental health, getting an indoor plant may work wonders on your overall mood, creativity, productivity, and concentration, which will in turn reduce your stress levels and improve your immunity.

Do you have a houseplant?
