If you’re trying to lose or maintain your weight, it is important to use proper tools.  Eating the right foods will not give you success if you aren’t eating proper portions.

Sometimes, when dieting,  you may find yourself hitting a plateau and scratching your head, thinking, why isn’t the scale moving?  If you’re doing everything you think is right, the  problem will usually lie in portion control, sodium intake, or lack of water intake.

Particularly for more vulnerable people, it’s important that their houses are hazard free and that they’ve got a supportive community around them. These 5 tips can help make them feel safer at home.

Be Aware of the Risks

Three ways you can support youth charities

Youth charities provide a much-needed service in supporting vulnerable children, teenagers, and young adults. Some deal with specific issues, such as providing counseling for mental health issues and trauma, rehabilitation and recovery programs to tackle addiction, and building confidence and life skills to deter vulnerable young people from a life of crime.
