Control the things you can

Life is full of situations that are out of your control, there is no way around that fact. Focusing on what you can control is what will reduce stress and anxiety and ultimately put you back in the driver’s seat. Making your surroundings your own at the office is a great start to promoting peace, since this is where we spend the majority of our time. Water fountains make a wonderful, soothing addition to an office space to create a tranquil environment everyone else will appreciate too. Cascading, trickling and bubbling water all hit an instinctual part of us that craves a place away from the hustle and bustle of life. Having a tabletop fountain on your desk brings the sounds and smells of a relaxing stream to your work space. Water is essential to life and to peace of mind. Take control of your work environment and add a water feature to reduce stress, add humidity and keep you refreshed so you can work efficiently and happily.

Get outside and enjoy the fresh air

As we become older and start raising a family and making a home, we unconsciously spend more time indoors cooking, cleaning, doing the laundry and dishes, decorating…all decreasing our time getting fresh air. We all know being outside is good for the body, so how can you get out more and still make a home? Grilling meals during the warmer months takes cooking out of the indoor equation and it’s healthier for you and your family. Whether you have a spacious backyard or just a modest patio, there is a grill for you to start a healthier lifestyle. Grilling food drips fats from meat, making them healthier, plus it offers a taste no other cooking method can provide. You can make almost anything on a grill from pizzas to appetizers and even desserts. Many recipes are available online but first you need the grill. Get more out of life and still make a home by grilling outdoors to create a healthier lifestyle.

Be Green

Mother Nature provides all for us, our children, our grandchildren and all future generations. You can make choices to show your appreciation to her by being an environmentally conscious consumer. One easy way to do this is by purchasing solar lights, versus the standard electric light bulb. Solar bulbs use the natural and free energy of the sun, without harmful chemicals or emissions. Many solar lights are available for different purposes, such as lighting your shed or garage, deck and patio lights and lanterns to brighten a walkway at night, among many others. Distinct and beautiful styles are available to match any décor and you can feel good knowing you have made a choice to leave a better legacy for future generations.
