Give to those who have nothing this Christmas with Solace Women’s Aid

This year has been an odd year for me. There has been a lot of ups and downs, but the downs have been a bit more than normal for some weird reason. I am glad the year is almost over. I am looking forward to the Christmas break and starting 2020 from a clean slate. It is so easy to get carried away this season with feeling Christmassy. There are presents to buy and wrap, decorations to put up and shopping to do, it can be too easy to stay focused on ourselves and what we need.

Give to those who have nothing this Christmas

This year and going forward, I am doing it differently. I am giving the little I have to those who have nothing this Christmas. It is surprising to know how many people go without day after day in one of the richest countries in the world. Homelessness is rising day after day, women and children are fleeing their homes due to domestic violence. These people have nothing this Christmas. Imagine if we all gave the little we had to a charity of our choice. That would put smiles on so many faces.

Solace Womens Aid

The charity of my choice this Christmas is Solace Womens Aid (and this is not an ad). The charity focuses on supporting women and children fleeing domestic abuse in London. I have no ties with this charity. I just think they are doing a great job and I felt like supporting the team through a donation and a blog post. Domestic violence is a major issue for the most vulnerable in the society and it breaks my heart to hear about women and children being forced to leave their home and belongings to be away from male abuse. These women and children usually leave with little or nothing, to start all over again. The fear of the unknown means many women would rather stay in abusive environments than seek refuge elsewhere. Which is why charities like Solace Womens Aid is amazing and your donations can help them do more.

Every month, I plan to donate to a new charity and share a blog post about the charity as well. I hope we all have an amazing time getting ready for the big day this month, and remember those who have nothing this season.

Thanks for reading and donating. Have a great week.

Create A Sense Of Organization Among The Small Business Chaos

*Collaborative post.

A sense of organization is something that every single business needs to feel, but how easy would you say that that is to do? Especially as a small business, it’s so easy to feel a sense of panic and despair, rather than feeling as though you’re actually comfortable with what you’re doing. Especially if you’re a new startup, organization most definitely isn’t going to be your strong suit, but we know there are a few things that you can do to pull it all together. Because although it might not feel as important to you to focus on organization whilst you are just a small business, it won’t be long until the lack of organization will catch up with you as your business grows. Plus, there’s nothing worse than feeling like the small business that you have, is all over the place in terms of organization. So, keep on reading, and we’ll show you the organization that you need, and how you can go about creating it.

Realise The Scale You’re Working With

So the first thing that you need to do, is realise the scale that you’re working with, and how quick your business is growing. We carry this label of a small business around with us for so long, but the scale you’re working with could be much more, especially in terms of data. Data is one of the biggest targets in business at the minute, with cyber thieves are always on the lookout to take anything that they could use in terms of data, even if that just be email addresses and passwords of customers that you might have stored, or indeed your own. So one of the best ways to keep your data safe, is to use managed servers so that your information is more safe and secure.

 

Make Integrating Far Easier

Being able to integrate better with your own business is so important, especially if you’re growing at a rapid rate, and are expanding and making connections with other businesses. Not only that, but if your team begins to expand, you really need to focus on making working easier. One way of doing so is looking at Dynamic Personalization, which allows you to better share documents with the relevant people, as well as better track who is using them. Document integration is one thing a lot of businesses fail with, but they all need nearly every single day.

 

Manage The Daily Chaos

Daily organization is the one that business owners probably struggle with the most, and it’s mainly due to the lack of daily planning. A simple plan to start the day gives you something to stick to, rather than just flicking from job to job. Plus, it helps to keep your mind calm and collected, and teaches you which way is the best way to manage the day. You might also benefit from taking regular breaks throughout the day to simply have a drink and something to eat, and to let your mind switch off for a few minutes. Doing that will surely help with the sense of organization. Something all business owners seem to forget to do! 

 

Abide – A Christian Way to Meditate

I fell in love with meditating sometime ago and I have not looked back since. The benefits of meditating regularly are just too numerous to mention. Being still has changed my life for the better, which is why I find the time to do just that every day. I have been listening to many guided meditations on YouTube and most of them are great. I found them useful but I wanted more. While browsing the App Store, I found the Abide App – A Christian Way to Meditate and I quickly downloaded. I was lucky enough to get a free trial for a week and that gave me time to see if I really liked it.

When it comes to Apps, I like getting them for free like many other people, so deciding to keep this Abide App and pay a monthly fee tells you how much I like the App. It is the only App on my iPhone I pay for. The picture below best describes how I feel about this Christian Meditation App.

Abide – A Christian Way to Mediate

For those who have never heard of the Abide App, it is a christian guided mediation and daily prayer App. The App comes with daily meditation, bedtime stories to hep you fall asleep soundly, various meditations for different topics and more. I am currently enjoying the guided mediations for women and it has already changed my wellbeing and whole life for the better. I wonder how I am only just finding out about this amazing App.

If you want to try out this mediation App, a quick search on your App Store should do. You should be able to get a free trial for a week like I did and that will give you time to browse the App and see if it is what you would like. The monthly fee for the basic package is only £3.99 per month as at today. So it is not too pricey.

Since I tried this App, I have not had the desire to go back to listening to the guided meditations on Youtube. This App is worth every penny and I highly recommend it to anyone in search of  christian guided meditation App. You need to try Abide. It may be all you need.
