Measuring and Weighing Food Can Help Keep Your Diet on Track

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.

A good way to gauge and measure your portions is with a food scale.  The Uten Digital Kitchen Scale is an ultra slim, multifunction stainless steel hook design scale, with back-lit LCD display.  It is available on Amazon


You can learn about proper nutrition and portion control from your doctor.  For smart tips regarding portion control, visit: https://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/healthy_eating/portion_size.html

5 Ways to Feel Safer at Home

We all want to feel safe in our homes and there are a number of steps we can take to help us feel more secure.

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

If you’re classed as a vulnerable person, then it’s important to be aware of the added risks you face.

Whether it’s keeping track of the weather so you can keep cool on the hottest summer days, or following guidance on how to avoid viruses, it can make a huge difference to your safety. Your home is one of the safest places to be, but there are external factors that can affect you even within your own home.

Engage with Your Community

If you’re close with your neighbors and the local community, then you’ve always got someone to check on you or someone to call when you’re in need.

Modern society is much more isolated than it used to be, but people are still eager to be…

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. However, youth charities have the same principles at their heart: the nurturing and development of young people so that they are able to achieve their full potential and lead happy and successful adult lives. If you would like to support the development of the younger generation, there are several options for you to do so. Here are three ways you can support youth charities:

1. Donate a vehicle whilst supporting a youth development scheme
You’re probably familiar with donating clothes, furniture, and other unwanted household items at your local Goodwill, but did you know that you can also donate unwanted vehicles to charities? One y…

3 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster

Selling your house is an exciting time, but it can also be a lengthy and stressful process. Everyone wants to sell their property as soon as possible and have the freedom to move into their new house or invest the capital from their sale. Luckily, there are dozens of ways to speed up the house selling process and maximize your financial return. To help you enjoy a stress-free moving experience, here are three tips to sell your home faster:

1. Hire a real estate agent
It may be beneficial to sell your home yourself if you have confidence in your ability to market your property and negotiate the best deal. However, hiring a real estate agent can help speed up the selling process and ensure that the process runs smoothly. A real estate agent has specialist knowledge of the housing market and has the skills and expertise to ensure that you reach potential buyers and get the best possible offer for your home. According to experts at zillow.com, you can find a quality real estate agent by com…

Quality Human Hair Wigs

When choosing wigs, it is important to know that there are different types.  While synthetic wigs are very nice, last a long time and are very affordable, sometimes wig wearers look for quality human hair wigs.

You may wonder what the difference is between the two.  The main difference is the type of fiber.  Synthetic wigs tend to hold styles longer, whereas human hair wigs are more like your own hair.  They need to be washed and restyled when they are washed.  Another major difference is the way the hair feels.

Lilyhair wigs has a beautiful assortment of human hair wigs to compliment any face.  Whether you are looking for toppers, wigs or extensions, there is an assortment for everyone so that you can achieve the look you want.

Remember that with any wigs, it is important to care for them as you would care for your own hair.  You can find tips for caring for your human and synthetic wigs on the Lilyhair website.
