Help Your Home Fight The Environmental Battle

Do you want to make positive changes to the environmental struggle? Well done! The environment is something we should all care about. Things aren’t looking good for the planet. For the most part, we don’t make any effort to improve the situation. If you’re fed up of ignoring the problems, there are things you can do to make positive change. Just small changes to your home can make a huge difference. Not to mention, they can save you money!


SOLAR POWER

Using solar energy is one of the best things you can do for the environment. It’s also one of the best things you can do to avoid unpleasant heating bills. Why throw money at electricity when you could harvest your power with barely any effort? Solar power installation may cost you initially, but those panels will soon pay for themselves. Environmental resources are limited and are decreasing at a rapid rate. Don’t be part of the problem. Switch to solar power now and see the difference!

BE ECONOMICAL WITH ELECTRICITY

The amount of electricity we waste in an average household is insane. You might want to stay toasty this winter, but think twice next time you turn the heating on. Can you wrap up in a blanket instead? Check to turn the lights off each time you leave a room. It’s even worth switching off any appliances you leave on standby. It may take you an extra minute, but it will make a huge difference. Again, you’ll be saving yourself money on bills too. What’s not to like?

DOUBLE GLAZING

Investing in double glazing is another fantastic improvement you can make to your home. Double glazing decreases the amount of heat you lose from your windows and keeps your house much warmer. You won’t have to compromise on putting the heat on once you’ve invested in this. Again, the outlay may seem a lot, but you’ll save that and more in heating bills!  


DON’T WASTE WATER

Electricity isn’t the only thing we waste in our homes. Water is another resource we shouldn't waste. And yet, it’s wasted by the bucket load! There are a variety of ways to cut down on any household water usage. Setting up an egg timer to ensure no one stays in the shower longer than five minutes will make a huge difference. You could also run shallow baths. You don’t have to go without, just be more mindful of the water you’re using. This is also relevant when it comes to washing machines and dishwashers. Do you do small loads of laundry rather than one big one? Do various members of the household use the machine? Putting all your laundry together to do a big load is much better. With your dishwasher, ensure nothing else can fit in before you set it to wash. If you’ve only got small amounts of washing, could you wash them by hand instead? Again, it will only take you a few minutes and is well worth the effort!

Beat the Blues This Winter With These 4 Tips


Lots of people feel down during the winter months. It often begins when the nights start drawing in and is often worse just after Christmas. It is thought that the lack of natural sunlight at this time of year has a negative impact on our mood.

You may have heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD. This is the medical term given to the feelings of depression or low mood that seem to come and go in a repetitive seasonal pattern. If your symptoms are severe or you feel you can’t cope, you should always seek medical advice. However, if you’re just feeling a little blue, follow these simple tips to lift your mood.

1. Let The Light In

If a lack of light is having a negative impact on your mood, optimise your daylight levels. Open curtains wide during the daytime and take down nets and blinds. Try to spend time outdoors as much as possible. You may also want to invest in a SAD lamp. These are artificial lamps that simulate natural daylight and can help boost your mood.

2. Look Good, Feel Good

If we’re feeling down, we don’t always feel like making an effort with our appearance. And during winter less of our skin is on display, so we don’t need to worry as much. But making an effort can have a positive effect. The simple act of taking care of ourselves and taking the time to look good, can also improve our mood.


Go through the same beauty regime you usually save for the summer months. Exfoliate and slough away all those dead skin cells. Moisturise thoroughly. There are lots of natural remedies to promote healthy skin. Your skin will appear brighter and more radiant. Defuzz and apply a little fake tan to add some colour. Just a little, though; you don’t want to look unnatural.

Invest in some quality underwear. A new bra and knickers will make you feel sexy. Brands like Tutti Rouge bras and lingerie are available in a range of sizes to suit your shape.

Cash is sometimes tight at this time of year. If you can’t afford new clothes make some subtle changes to the ones you have. Swap outfits around and mix and match. Introduce accessories to change the overall look.

3. Treat Yourself

When was the last time you treated yourself? During the festive season, we focus on others and find gifts that they would love. But treating ourselves can also be beneficial. You don’t need to have lots of money to do this. It could be as simple as a small bunch of flowers, a magazine or your favourite brand of tea. Little treats can provide you with a quick lift.


4. Eat Well And Move

During Christmas, we tend to overindulge. Food is a big part of the festivities. And if you can’t indulge at Christmas, when can you indulge? But for the rest of winter, try to keep to a healthy diet. Drink plenty of water and fill up on fruit and veg.

You may not feel like venturing out of doors on freezing cold days, but it’s important to get out and get some exercise. When we workout our body releases endorphins which provide us with a natural high. It also helps to give us feeling healthy.

Sometimes, it only takes a few small changes to have a big impact on your mood. With a little thought, you can shake off the winter blues and make the most of the season.
