Avoid stressful situations

Stress is the last thing your body needs right now, so avoid anything that will increase your stress levels. Getting enough sleep is one way of getting rid of stress. To ensure you get a good night sleep, you can try a cup of chamomile tea before bed. That will help you sleep like a baby.

Eat your dark chocolate

I am sure many are surprised to see this on the list, but eating dark chocolate is one way to get rid of stress. Dark chocolate has plenty of magnesium in it, so it is not only yummy but healthy. It is also in very high in iron, copper, manganese, and is filled with prebiotic fiber that feeds your healthy gut bacteria. Just another reason to stock up on dark chocolates this period.

Natural foods are good for you

The best type of foods are the natural unprocessed ones. So eat as many natural foods you can this period to keep your body and mind healthy.

Stay away from toxins

Staying away from all toxins would be great for your physical health as well as your wellbeing. So say no to drugs, alcohol, additives, coffee, excess sugars and the likes. This will help you stay in healthy and keep your body and mind strong.

This is not the time for extreme dieting or detoxing. Just make sure you eat a varied diet and then you won’t feel so guilty when you reward yourself with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. Everything in moderation is the way to go.

Get your blog ready for the new year

Season Greetings guys! How is everyone getting ready for the holidays? We are excited here. Definitely caught the Christmas bug in our house. It has been very busy here but I am finally slowing down and getting into the jolly mood. I am done with uni work for the year and I won’t be posting on Fashion and Style Police as often as I usually do for the rest of this year. I want to take some proper time off and just do nothing. The holidays is a great time to relax and bond with the family. It is also a great time to get your blog ready for the new year.

Get your blog ready for the new year

How do you get your blog ready for 2020? Here are 3 ways you could do this before this year ends –

 

Take a good look at your blog

Before you can successfully improve something, you have to know what needs improving. This rule applies to everything including blogs. To improve your blog, you need to take a good honest look at it and look for ways you could improve it. It could be the blog name, theme, blog layout/design, or domain. There is always room for improvement, so take a good look at your blog and look for ways to improve it for the new year.

 

Improve your photography game

Blogs are visual, which means your pictures have to look pretty. No one would read a great post if the pictures in the blog post are poor quality. Pictures have the power to attract more eyeballs to your blog posts so work on improving your photography skills this holiday. You could take a photography course, play around with picture editing tools like Lightroom, Photoshop and the likes, so you know how to make the most of the pictures you do take.

Blocking Buyers on eBay

I have recently resumed selling on eBay and I am finding the new system very seller friendly and easy to use. It takes me few minutes to have an item listed on my eBay account and it has encouraged to keep selling on the platform. A few years ago, the listing process was so long-winded, it could take an 1 hour to list a bundle of clothes, but thanks to the new eBay app, this is no longer the case.

If you sell on eBay regularly, you would have come across all types of buyers. I have seen it all. The ones in far away countries that insist on buying your item even though it is clearly listed for UK residents only. I have seen the buyers who never pay and the ones would buy items and then send you messages on how they are suddenly unable to pay. Or the buyers who ask you question after question. It ca get frustrating as a seller and a buyer, as I buy and sell on there, so I have seen both sides.

Blocking Buyers on eBay

If you like to protect yourself while selling on eBay, the smartest thing to do is to block the time wasters and scammers once you have had an encounter with them. This stops them bidding or attempting to buy your items again. It also prevents them from contacting you. On my eBay account, I have blocked only 4 buyers, so it is not a common occurrence for me. But I know many other sellers who have blocked hundreds of dodgy buyers over the years.

 

Here is how to go about blocking buyers on eBay –

Sign in and head to the seller’s centre. Once you are on the page, you can type in help in resolving buyer issues, and then scroll down to the bottom for instructions  on how to block buyers. eBay allows you block up to 5000 buyers, so plenty room for the buyers you don’t want.

I am grateful this feature is available. Dealing with fraudsters and time wasters can be draining. So at least with this feature, we won’t have to cross paths again.
