12 Awesome Benefits of a Skiing Holiday

The decision we make to embark on a skiing holiday is not one to be taken lightly, but it doesn’t have to costs a ton of money, and you don’t have to drag the family halfway across the world to visit some of the most breathtaking scenery on the planet.

The perception of half freezing to death and having to lug a mountain of equipment is shattered by the reality of lots of sunshine, wearing the right clothes and being able to rent top-class boots and skis at the resorts is you want to travel light. The sense of satisfaction and achievement that you get from a skiing holiday is second to none and provides a positive outlook on life.

For skiing enthusiasts, there’s nothing more exhilarating than a change of scenery, time away from work and the feeling of freedom from the drudgery of work-life that skiing with nature gives us. Skiing comes with so many health benefits it ticks the ‘great for you’ box in so many ways. One of the things I love about ski holidays is that it is something the whole family can do together, or I can do by myself. And for me, nothing beats a winter ski holiday as an escape away from the drab, wet, windy, dark days and nights in the UK. Summer skiing holidays are just as fun and can physically and mentally prepare me for the winter months ahead.

As someone who likes to try to keep fit, I love the hours and days spent twisting and turning down the sunny, snowy slopes. I know this works most of the major muscle groups to provide an all-over workout, helping me to build strength and stamina. It can take me all week in the gym to achieve the same work out as a day on the slopes provides me with. Not only that but as someone who hates Cardio work in the gym, skiing gets my heart working faster and provides a fun cardio session that I just wouldn’t achieve in the gym. Especially if I combine it with some cross-country skiing and get a bit of walking in.

Skiing improves fitness and stamina. Imagine a month on the slopes: boy, I’d have had muscles like Arnie! Sadly my ski holidays don’t last more than a week. But in that one week, I can become noticeably fitter, healthier and happier, skiing really does tick all of the health boxes. When it comes to working hard and having fun, skiing is one of the best sports you can do.

I have listed some of the health benefits of skiing below to help you decide whether a skiing holiday is for you:

* Boosts mood – boosts overall happiness and well-being includes physical and mental health.

* Encourages social interaction – people naturally socialize as part of the ski experience.

* Promotes deep sleep – engages your entire body leading to a good night’s sleep.

* Promotes healthy eating habits – naturally be more conscious of eating the right fuel, more protein, healthy fats, less sugar, more fruits, and vegetables.

* Skiing improves proprioception – the ability to feel the position of different body parts and their movements.

* Improves Balance and coordination – need to be conscious of slight movements and positions of your body.

* Strengthens bones and joints – strengthens knees and bones become stronger through the weight-bearing impact on the legs.

* Strengthens lower body muscles – works your inner and outer thighs, hamstrings, quads, and glutes.

* Improves flexibility – building flexibility helps to avoid muscle strains and sprains.

* Increases cardiovascular endurance – works the heart and lungs and burns calories aiding weight loss.

* Improves balance and core strength – challenges your balance and agility and helps to build that six-pack.

For me, skiing is one of those activities that anyone of any ability can do and enjoy. Whether you are looking for a new hobby to keep you fit and healthy or are considering taking up a new sport to keep you out of mischief, skiing could be for you.

Whatever your activity or experience level skiing holidays can provide entertainment and fun for everyone.

A Fail-Safe Holiday Party Strategy

The holiday season is here, bringing Entrepreneurs and Solopreneurs opportunities to become their own Santa Claus and put some new customers under the tree. Holiday parties can be the perfect time to pick up the thread with colleagues from the past, nurture relationships with prospects you’ve recently met and get an introduction to customers you’d like to add to your roster in the near future. To make all that happen, you’ll need a strategy.

Step One, go to your parties alone. Under no circumstances do you need to drag someone along with you, unless that person is needed to get you into a party where you can expect to meet prospective customers, or that person promises to introduce you to a good prospect while there.

Even that arrangement can be risky— a few years ago, I was invited to what should have been a networking bonanza, except that my friend got very drunk and worse, he reneged on bringing me into a post-party meeting with someone who could have been very helpful to me.

Sep Two, confirm the dress code. A weekend party held after 6:00 PM will imply fancier dress and could be black-tie optional. If you are the +1, ask your contact to forward you the invitation. You do not want to show up improperly dressed, even if your contact claims that it won’t matter.

Men should wear a sport coat or blazer, if a suit would be too formal for the occasion. Women should avoid too-short or too-tight clothing and revealing necklines. Jeans or leather pants are out of the question for either gender, unless your host is in the arts or high-tech.

Step Three, find out who is on the guest list and Step Four, polish your elevator pitch. If you can access the Evite, you will see who has responded. You can Google names to get professional updates on those you’d like to reconnect with or meet and you’ll also know which subjects to “spontaneously” bring up.

However, be mindful that talking business could be a turn-off at a party, unless the other person raises the subject. Focus instead on scheduling post-party follow-up with selected people who would like to know more about your products and services.

While at the party, greet and thank your host straight away, before you visit the bar or the buffet. After that relax, mix and mingle. Have handy some friendly ice-breakers that will open the door to conversation (“How do you know [the host]?”).

Eating and drinking are party highlights, but take it easy with the drinking. I recommend that you have not more than one drink and then switch to a non-alcoholic beverage. You must be sober to successfully execute your networking strategy.

Furthermore, you’ll also need to master the drink and hors d’oeuvres plate juggle. Hold your drink in your left hand, so that you can shake hands easily and not give a cold, damp greeting. Likewise, eat hors d’oeuvres with your left hand, so you don’t offer a sticky handshake.

Finally, pay attention to the ebb and flow of guests. Unless you’re in a serious conversation, when their number begins to fade, find your host, thank him/her for the invitation and take your leave. There is an optimum time to arrive at and leave a party. Arriving 15- 20 minutes after the start time usually works. The next day, send a quick email to thank your host for a lovely time. After all, a good party is a wonderful thing and you want to get invited back next year!

Nine Tips for Holiday Dating Safety

The holiday season is upon you. This can be a challenging time if you are single. Invitations to parties are flooding your mailbox. Various television channels seem to devote their entire lineup with movies depicting Santa bringing single women their true love. Jewelry stores are airing commercials showing husbands buying wives big shiny objects. Food companies are playing mind games too by showing how much fun it is to bake cookies with children and create enormous feasts for family and friends. Then there are the commercials showing you where to pick out the perfect ornament for your perfect tree. All this can send your head spinning and make you feel a bit down in the dumps if you are single. You may find yourself feeling isolated and alone. Oh and the final blow to your ego; let’s not forget your email is being flooded with discount offers from Match.com, eHarmony, Senior Singles and more.

From experience I have noticed this is the time of year that singles make dumb dating choices. I don’t want you to wake up in March with regrets. November through February are filled with events for couples. No one wants to attend holiday parties alone. No one wants to spend New Year’s Eve, the Super Bowl, or Valentine’s Day alone. This is the time of year when people settle for less than true love so they don’t have to be alone during the holidays. I want you to take an honest look at my tips below and see if you are guilty of committing any of them in the past.

Tips to Remember when Dating During the Holidays

  1. Remember: There is nothing wrong with being single during the holidays. It is better to be single than in a fake relationship.
  2. Watch out for the person that only wants a date during the holidays. Ask about past relationships. It is OK to ask the person what they want – do they just want a date for holiday parties or do they want a relationship.
  3. Don’t lower your dating standards during the holidays: Don’t let holiday party invitations cause you to act desperate and settle for less than you deserve.
  4. Don’t spend excessive amounts of money on your new date for Christmas presents. I recommend you don’t buy each other gifts.
  5. Actively listen: Pay attention to the little thing – like what he or she isn’t saying i.e. excessive drinking, selfish behavior, letting you pays for everything, complaining about child support etc… Don’t settle for the guy or gal that can’t or won’t say “I’m sorry” or that won’t communicate.
  6. Keep your eyes open: Actions speak louder than words. Watch out for the person that blames you for his bad behavior. This is the person that turns the tables and makes it your fault.
  7. It takes two people to make a relationship work. Don’t be the only one working on it. What is your walk away point? It is OK to end a relationship during the holidays.
  8. Don’t compromise your safety. Follow your intuition. Be careful of the person that immediately professes to be in love with you and then asks for money.
  9. Keep busy – whether it is staying home alone reading or writing or being with friends – no pity party allowed.

Now that you have reviewed the list and self reflected on past holiday relationships I want you to promise you will make wise choices when dating during the holidays. Singles can enjoy the holidays. When you implement my Nine Tips for Holiday Dating Safety you will have more money in your bank account, remember your self-worth, and have no regrets in March. Remember, there is nothing wrong with being single during the holidays.

Keep Your Kids Safe This Holiday

Trim the Tree Safely

The National Fire Protection Association calculates that Christmas trees cause 210 annual house fires. You could buy a fireproof artificial tree, but then your kids miss out on choosing and trimming a fresh tree. To prevent fires and other tree dangers, though, choose the fresh tree in the lot, place it away from heating sources and keep it saturated with water. Cut off low branches that could poke your kids in the eyes. Additionally, secure the tree from tipping over when you place it in a wide-based stand.

Decorate Safely

According to legend, German preacher Martin Luther added lit candles to the holiday tree in the early 1500s. Sparkling lights remain a staple in holiday decor, but exercise caution when burning candles. Place them away from the surface edges, teach your kids not to touch the flame, and remove flammable fabrics and paper from the vicinity of lit candles.

If you string lights instead of burning candles, use only Underwriters Lab-approved lights and cords. Inspect each strand for frayed or exposed wires and loose connections before plugging them in, and attach no more than three strings of lights per extension cord. Home insurance will include coverage for accidents, but keep your kids safe when you secure all cords and lights to prevent your kids from pulling or tripping on them.

You probably use other items as decorations too. Remember that small ornaments aren’t safe since they’re choking hazards. Likewise, resist decorating with marbles or anything else that looks like candy. Tinsel and ribbon could become twisted around your little ones’ fingers or toes, so don’t use those items. Place glass angels and crèches on high shelves where your children can’t reach them.

Bake Safely

Food Timeline shares that animal crackers originated in the late 1800s, while the decorative box was marketed as a Christmas tree ornament in 1902. If you and your family want to make your own animal cookies or other holiday treats, follow seven safety tips.

  1. Always supervise your kids while baking and cooking. You don’t want them pulling a mug of hot chocolate onto their laps.
  2. Store a fire extinguisher in the kitchen. The U.S. Fire Administration recommends you choose an extinguisher that’s comfortable to hold and is an ABC-type that handles ordinary combustibles, flammable liquids and electrical fires.
  3. Don’t let young children chow down on nuts, mints or popcorn. These popular holiday finger foods pose choking hazards.
  4. Store alcohol, alcoholic beverages and baking extracts with alcohol content out of a child’s reach. Kids can get sick if they ingest alcohol.
  5. Keep knives and other sharp cooking tools out of your kids’ reach. You don’t want your young children to reach for a fresh cookie and find a sharp knife instead.

Trampled By Holiday Anxiety? How to Psychologically Protect Yourself All-Year Long

The dust has finally settled.

And the holiday stampede is trailing off in the distance. It can bring love, joy, gratitude and deep connection with family… but also shock waves of stress and anxiety along with it.

Here are two common causes of anxiety and stress that run rampant for the Holidays.

(But if you read carefully, you’ll notice these two ring true all-year long)

1) Overwhelmed with commitments

For many their schedule is bursting at the seams… spend titanic amounts of time with family… having to go visit this relative… go to this event… go to this party. It’s easy to be pulled in all different directions. Sometimes we’re not able to make everything happen. Sometimes we even disappoint certain family members in the process.

Plus, unlike other times of the year, it’s harder to escape these commitments.

2) Driven to create the perfect holiday

There’s staggering pressure for making it the best experience, purchasing the best gifts, preparing the best meals – all while holding it together for loved ones. And while this care for others is admirable it leaves a trail of exhaustion, overwhelm and stress in its wake.

So what’s the holiday goer to do?

Just about everyone I’ve met who struggles with holiday anxiety gets caught up in a vicious cycle of taking care of everyone else… but themselves. And this happens year-round too, doesn’t it?

If I can hand you one shiny gift this year it’s this:

I challenge you to reignite your focus on taking care of yourself.

You deserve it.

You’ll enjoy it.

You’ll be more productive.

You’ll be happier.

You’ll be less stressed.

You’ll be stronger.

You’ll serve others better.

However, some people believe:

If they take care of themselves, it’ll take away from others.

Quite the contrary…

The more you take care of yourself, the more you can take care of others.

In fact, researchers Van Yperen, Buunk, and Schaufeli, published a study in the Journal of Applied Psychology on this connection. They found that health care professionals that were more immune to burnout were those who helped others but also sought out help and support when they needed it.

It’s like that safety lecture on a plane. In an emergency when those yellow rubber masks flop down from the ceiling, the instructions are: “Please secure your own mask before those around you

Same thing here:

If you want to help others, we have to help ourselves.

If you want others to be at their best, we have at to be at our best.

And there are lots of ways to make that happen.

Here’s a jump-start though:

What activities energize you?

What hobbies or activities allow you to be at your best?

What activities really make you happy?

What activities used to bring joy to your life?

And then get the ball rolling on those again.

Can Herpes Mar Your Holiday?

As one after another, holidays from Christmas to Valentine’s will be celebrated, a lot of planning ranging from arranging holidays to shopping takes place. A lot of stress and illness is experienced by many people during holidays. Lack of proper rest can cause stress. The more rested you are, the better you can handle your stressful situations. The less stress you have, the better controlled your herpes will be. Stress incites the outbreak in case of herpes.

Genital herpes and cold sores around month are caused by herpes simplex virus. Herpes zoster is the virus that causes shingles and chickenpox. This virus gets transmitted through direct skin-to-skin contact. Cold sores can be transmitted through kissing (which admittedly we do a lot in holidays). Directly contacting with the body fluids of infected person can also transmit the virus.

Let’s go through some of the tips to overcome symptoms of herpes outbreak during your holidays:

Eat healthy: You should make sure that you are eating nutrient-rich diet that your body needs to keep your immune system strong. The smell of the holiday buffet can tickle your taste buds, but that food might not be good for your stress level. Limit foods high in sugar and fats during holidays.

Take enough sleep: You can keep yourself away from stress by having as much sleep as your body requires. The chances of herpes outbreak reduce with less stress.

Avoid getting cold: Cold causes a lot of stress to your body and often triggers herpes outbreak. Wash your hands frequently to avoid getting cold.

Avoid excessive drinking: You can indulge in drinking as holidays are meant to celebrate. Excessive drinking makes you less restful during sleep which is bad for your body.

Treatment for herpes outbreak

Despite taking precautionary measures and tips to avoid herpes outbreak, if you get one then controlling of outbreak symptoms is the best option to get relief. An effective genital herpes treatment pushes the virus into inactive dormant stage. You should keep your infected area clean and dry so as to let the natural healing process take place. Doctors recommend taking warm showers to cleanse the infected area and keeping the area dry, free from any moisture.

Although there are no genital herpes treatments that can cure herpes, frequency and duration of outbreak can be controlled by some medications. These medications can alleviate the symptoms and fasten the healing of the sores. Prescription medications such as Valtrex and Famvir can relieve the uncomfortable situations. You can get Valtrex which is an anti-viral drug that tackles the outbreak symptoms of genital herpes within first 24 hours online. It can be also used as shingles treatment. Famvir is a suppressive treatment for genital herpes, which can be taken with first signs of an outbreak. It prevents a full outbreak to occur within 24 hours.

Camping Holidays – Advantages and Disadvantages

The advantages of camping holidays begin with adventure. A family can go wherever they want and camp there for as long as they have. From a camping base a family can go for walks out into the wild and see nature in its true habitat. They can also make their way over to huge lakes to fish or swim, and if they find an adventure park they can spend the day zip lining around the trees as fast as they can go, which is fun for everyone.

This is also where the disadvantages begin however, because some people like the routine they have and won’t want it disturbed by living in a tent for a week or two. Sometimes there are no shower facilities and people will need to use a solar shower, which isn’t a problem for most, but some people could feel self-conscious about their body when using one. Toilets are another big disadvantage if a camp site doesn’t have the facilities provided, as people will need to go and dig themselves a hole to use, or use a communal one, which many consider to be worse.

For others the freedom of being in the outdoors outweighs all disadvantages relating to homely comforts such as showering and using the toilet. They also enjoy not being able to use their mobile phones, as these are an invasion which can ruin a holiday if someone is using theirs constantly. Whilst camping, people will also be away from the thick smog of the city, something many consider to be unhealthy. The great outdoors has nothing but fresh air, and most people consider this a huge advantage of camping holidays.

To break it down to a list of the core advantages and disadvantages, this is what most people think of camping.

Advantages

1) Adventure

2) Seeing Wildlife

3) Clean Air

4) No Mobile Phones

5) No Internet

6) No Traffic

7) No Interruptions

Disadvantages

1) No Toilet

2) No Shower

3) No Food Provided For You

4) Living In A Tent

5) Bugs

6) Little Or No Electricity

7) Nothing Much To Do If You’re Not Adventurous

In conclusion, the advantages and disadvantages of camping seem to be entirely based on opinion. What people need to realise is that camping can be great fun as long as everyone is involved in enjoying themselves, because once someone isn’t having fun, the trip is ruined. If worst comes to worst, building a huge camp fire and staying up late into the night is something everyone enjoys doing.

Affordable Holiday Packages: What Are Some Must-See Places for Your Holiday Getaway?

Do you want to go to Australia on a nice holiday weekend? Or head to the casinos in Vegas for an exciting time? No matter what time of the year you plan on going, there should be some type of affordable holiday packages available.

What destinations appeal to you? Are you interested in a specific package, such as those tailored around golf, romance, or families? Make a list of what you are hoping to get out of your upcoming holiday trip and see what kind of deals you can find. Depending on the location and the circumstances, you might not find exactly what you’re looking for right away, so either have a backup destination in mind or wait patiently for the right deal to pop up.

Holiday packages at the bare minimum include hotel accommodation and free breakfast. Some may include free dining or even airfare. It’s pretty common these days for travelers to book their airfare and hotel room at the same time as it is often cheaper to do so rather than book them separately. However, this isn’t always the case. First, check and compare the prices to see which strategy would work best for you.

If you’re going to an exotic place you’ve never been before, you might want to consider a tour. Some affordable holiday packages include guided tours, usually by a local. This way, you can ensure that you are truly experiencing everything that should be experienced. When going on a self-guided tour by yourself, there is always the possibility that you will miss out on something important.

Find Affordable Holiday Packages on the Beach

Holiday deals at the beach tend to be very popular. Everybody loves to escape to a tropical beach somewhere for a few days. Destinations in the Caribbean, Hawaiian Islands, South America, California, and Southeast Asia are always worth considering.

Other types of holiday getaways people seem to really love include ski resorts, mountain retreats, spa retreats, Disney World, and cruises. You could always fly to a major city for a couple of nights of cosmopolitan fun. In the US, must-see cities include Vegas, NYC, and New Orleans. A lot of people want to experience the West Coast as well, so San Francisco, Seattle, and Los Angeles are often on the top of many people’s lists. Other cities across the globe you might want to consider include Paris, London, Tokyo, Seoul, Nassau, Hong Kong, Morocco, Sydney, and Toronto.

Keep in mind that the best affordable holiday packages often sell out quickly, so grab one while you have the chance!

If you really want to find some affordable holiday packages but don’t know how to get started, the best place to look is online. You can score a bargain and go on the holiday of your dreams. All it takes is an online coupon or two.
