How to Travel With Kids on a Budget

If you’re like many people, the words “kids” and “fun vacation” don’t always go together. As a parent, it can be a challenge to take a fun trip with small children. It requires extra preparation, more travel expenses, and at times, emotional breakdowns in airport terminals. However, traveling with your kids can still be a fun, memorable, way to build lasting bonds with your children. The following suggestions will help you plan a great trip with your kids that won’t break the bank.

1. Rent a House

Hotel rooms can be very expensive, especially when you need multiple beds. If you rent a house or apartment you can often save money, especially if you’re traveling with multiple people. Home sharing sites like Airbnb, VRBO, or FlipKey are a few great places to start to look for deals on accommodations. Plus, you can meet local people who live in the area and know the neighborhoods and destinations that you’re visiting.

2. Pack Lunches for the Day

Eating out can be a huge traveling expense, especially if you have multiple hungry mouths to feed. If you eat out every day with several people you are likely going to be spending a lot. One way to cut down costs is to go to a local grocery store and buy groceries to make sack lunches. This will be much less than paying for restaurant meals, plus you can eat on the go and save time for fun sightseeing activities.

How Long Can You Leave a Cat Alone? A Guide for Responsible Cat Parents

How long can you leave a cat alone? It is different with every cat.  Some cats are super-independent and like to be alone for most of the time, while others move from room to room wherever you go, following you like a shadow.
Also remember that it’s not the same if you’re leaving your four-pawed friend alone overnight, for a few days, or for a week or even more. You’ll need to make different arrangements and preparations dependable on how long you plan to leave your cat alone.  

Leaving a Cat Alone for the Weekend
Let’s say you wanted to go to a mini holiday and you want to leave your cat alone for couple of days. In my experience this is a better option than bringing your cat with you. Cats are actually scared of new environment, and sometimes they go crazy when they find themselves in the unknown. They may try to run, and that’s the scariest scenario for any pet owner. So what preparations should you make when leaving your cat alone for 2-3 days?

Things You Should Be Doing Every Day To Protect Yourself From Injury

It can be all too easy to suffer from injury these days; one day you’re in the gym pumping iron and the next, you’ve blacked out from using a weight too heavy with improper form. Or maybe you were running on little sleep while driving your car and got into an accident. Things can change in a matter of moments! Below are just a few things you can do to make sure you’re protecting yourself from injury every day. Take a look and start incorporating some of the tips into your life.

Getting Plenty Of Sleep
Sleep is key to our health and well being. When we’re well rested, we’re able to focus better, eat better, and enjoy life more in general. Without enough sleep, you might find that you feel hungrier, as your ghrelin levels are increased, which in turn can lead to things like obesity. Not only that, driving while suffering from a lack of sleep can be just as bad as driving while drunk. Seriously. If you’re tired, you should avoid driving at all costs or you risk a serious injury, not to mention losing your life or being responsible for another one.

Eating Enough Food
If you survive on nothing but caffeine all day long, your body is going to be full of adrenaline. This will make you more stressed, and in turn your cortisol levels will increase, which have been linked with an unhealthy amount of excess fat in the body. When you’re stressed or even shaky from not eating enough food, you might find that you struggle to make good decisions, or that you can’t pay as much attention. In turn, this can lead to injury. Make sure you eat well!

Avoiding Drugs And Alcohol
Drugs and alcohol are a huge danger to people these days. An excess of alcohol can mean losing all coordination, falling, and blacking out. Different drugs can do different things, but they all impair your ability to make rational decisions.
