Festivals are notorious for the wear and tear they can apply to your general belongings and specific hygiene. It’s not hard to imagine that bringing expensive items with you could be a bad idea, especially if the weather isn’t expected to hold up during your stay there. In fact, you might even be tempted to forgo the niceties completely and simply bring things that you don’t mind getting destroyed by some drunken stupor or terrible weather condition.

This would be a mistake. It’s important to look and feel good at a festival, because this is a celebration of life with your friends, and you should do all you can to make yourself feel happy while you’re there. One of the presumptions you would have made though is that style equals expense, and in many circumstances, that’s just not true.

The following festival style tips can help you look good, stay frugal and squeeze the most enjoyment out of your festival proceedings.

Tent

Your tent is an integral part of the festival going experience. If the weather is bad, you will be taking refuge here while you enjoy the time spend with your friends in the camp. If the weather is great, it can simply be used as a method of storing your belongings while you’re out and enjoying the festival. #

It’s important to choose a tent that’s functional, but it’s also great to choose a tent that’s stylish. Your tent isn’t an expression of your fashion taste, but having a distinctive and cute one will at least help you find it, and will help you feel more at home in it than some standard ubiquitous one found throughout the festival.

Fashion

Festival fashion ideally needs to be light, breathable and more importantly, wearable. This means that you need to be able to dance to your heart’s content in it, without worrying about wear and tear or general misuse of the item. Wearing light sun dresses with sleeves can help you look great due to the patterns and beautiful fabrics they possess, but also help you channel your inner hippy when you’re dancing around a field.

Wellingtons

It might seem silly to purchase beautiful wellington boots when they’re only going to be caked in mud anyway, regardless of the weather. Many people dancing in the same sports will eventually overturn even the most stable ground, so you are bound to get mud on you at some point. However, your wellingtons needn’t clash with your fashion statement.

Why not try furry pink/purple wellingtons to provide some much-needed color to your summer wardrobe? Correctly chosen, wellingtons can become a fashion statement in themselves, even if they do find themselves plastered in mud a few days into your adventure.

With all the emphasis placed on your looking good during the festival, it’s easy to forget that you’re there to have fun. Have a good time! Don’t be afraid to dance like an idiot, make friends and sing your heart out to the music you’ve gone to witness. You’ll be a better person for it.

The Truth About Milk

Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

One of the biggest myths about your health is that you should drink milk to get Calcium. Calcium is an important part of your diet because it helps maintain healthy bones among other things.But just because it is true that you need Calcium in your diet, that doesn’t mean that milk and dairy are the best places to get it.

Why Not Milk?

milk-1760353_640Source

You might be wondering why milk isn’t the best source of Calcium. People have been telling you otherwise for years, after all. The reason is that the Calcium found in milk doesn’t absorb into your body as effectively it would if you got it from other sources, that means you aren’t getting all of the benefits. The reason that this happens is that the animal proteins that you find in milk are broken down by the Calcium. That means that instead of absorbing into your body and bringing you all of those health benefits, the majority of it is being used up breaking down those animal proteins.

Another thing to think about is all of the other ingredients in milk. While it might have a good amount of Calcium, it’s also quite high in fat so drinking it all of the time is not going to be good for you. If you cause yourself other health problems by drinking too much milk, you’ll counteract a lot of the good it has done anyway. With that in mind, it’s much better to get your Calcium from better sources, but what are they?

Supplements

Taking Calcium supplements is much better than consuming large amounts of dairy because there are no negative effects. AlgaeCal plant calcium is an all natural source that doesn’t have any negative side effects. However, you should always check with the doctor before taking any kind of supplements in case they are not compatible with your diet.

You should also limit the amount of supplements that you take because your body is only capable of absorbing around 500mg of Calcium at one time. You do need more than this so you should be taking it in smaller doses throughout the day.

Foods

14517726379_77fe6e1fd1_zSource

As well as taking supplements, there are so many different foods that you can get Calcium from, most of them a lot healthier than dairy. Dark leafy greens are the probably the best source of Calcium out there because they have a lot of extra nutrients in them besides the Calcium. Things like Kale, Spinach, Collard Greens, and Broccoli are packed full of Vitamins A, C, K and B. All of them are essentials in your diet and these greens also have a tiny calorie count, especially when compared to things like milk and cheese.

Fish is another great source of Calcium but it needs to be fish with the bones in. Ordinarily, you’ll take the bones out so you lose a lot of that goodness, but if you use canned fish you can retain it all. The bones in canned fish go soft during the process so they can still be eaten. Fish also contains a good amount of Vitamin D which helps to absorb the Calcium and get the most out of it.

Finding peace of mind is essential if you want to live a happy, prosperous life day in, day out. It’s essential because — whether you know this or not — the mindset you see the world from plays a massive role in how much you get out of the world. And, simply, if your mindset is at peace then you give yourself more of an opportunity to get more out of the world. So, start attaining the peace of mind you deserve today; below you can find a few secrets on how to do so.

peace-of-mind-349815_640Image source

First of all, you should know that just because you are getting peace of mind for yourself, it doesn’t mean you can’t ask for help in getting it from external forces. There are many individuals and services out there that are willing and waiting to help provide you with the peace of mind you deserve. And the big secret here is not really so much of a secret, it is more of a tip: simply accept the help that is offered! Specifically, you should accept help from those that are specifically trained to offer you the specific help you need. Notably, lawyer firms offer this type of specific assistance. There are a host of firms out there that educated and qualified to deal with a specific sector of claims. Thus, this means that you would always be able to get the exact help needed as you fight for justice in regards to your exact situation. If your exact situation is an injustice in regards to disability, then assistance from an attorney such as Karl Osterhout, who offers focused assistance when it comes to Social Security and Long Term Disability claims, should be sought. When you seek such assistance you would be able to receive a peace of mind in knowing the fact that your situation, which could be a refusal of payments that you are rightfully owed, is being dealt with in as knowledgeable and professional way as possible.

But it’s not just about asking for help from others. No, it’s your mind and sometimes you have to find peace for it yourself. And there is a secret way to do this that not everybody is aware of. This secret way is to simply fight the little voice in the back of your head. This voice is the main contributor for any unrest you may suffer within your mind. To fight it, you have to be prepared to ignore it whilst you are busy and pander to it when you are not. You have to be able to say no to letting worries disrupt you during your working day, for instance. And you have to find yourself a calm and relaxing environment, such as your bedroom, in which you can think through your worries. Once you do so, you will find that you are able to regulate your worries far easier. Thus, this would mean your mind would be at peace and your mental health would be improved as a result.

For more advice on how to find the peace of mind that you deserve, make sure to give The Seven Secrets to Peace of Mind: Your Peace Is Your Command! a read. You can find it here.

6 Signs You Need to See a Doctor

This post may contain affiliate links.
Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

 

Our doctors and emergency rooms are so overrun that we’re often told to only seek medical care when it’s urgent. For instance, if you’re suffering from a cold but could manage with a few painkillers and some rest, going to your doctor may be a waste of time. But, how do we know what warrants a visit to our doctors and what doesn’t? Here are a few signs that you need to see your doctor.

 

Fainting

If you’ve fainted or have felt light-headed for a long period of time, it may be an indication of something more serious. It’s especially important if your symptoms have got progressively worse. For example, you’ve been suffering from a cold but now have a raised temperature and you’ve started fainting. You may want to look up amyloidosis symptoms. You should ask to see your doctor immediately or go to A&E if your doctor isn’t available.

Persistent Vomiting

When a person is sick it’s usually because bacteria has been introduced into the body and it needs to come out. Once the person has been sick, they can usually begin to re-introduce liquids, salt and sugar back into the system. However, there are times when sickness is more persistent and more severe. If you are vomiting and doesn’t seem to be stopping, you need to seek medical care straight away.

A Cough

We all get coughs from time to time, usually with Winter colds. However, coughs do tend to go away within ten days and most resolve themselves, if not with a dosage of cough medicine. If your cough is persistent and stays for longer than ten days, you may need to seek advice. This is especially important if your cough stops you from breathing properly. Here are some home remedies you can try to ease your cough.

Chest Pain

Severe chest pain can be an indication of many different things. Chest pain can be the starting symptom for more serious conditions, like a heart problem or pneumonia. If you’ve been coughing for a while, chest pain can just be a side effect, but if it persists or causes severe pain, it’s best to get it checked. Monitor the way you’re breathing while in pain. If your chest causes your breathing to become erratic, you’ll need to see someone straight away.

High Temperature

A high temperature is often part and parcel of being ill. Once the illness has passed, your temperature will usually return to normal. However, if your temperature remains high for a prolonged period of time, you’ll need to call the emergency services. Try to bring your temperature down by soaking a hand towel in cold water and placing it on your forehead.

Worsening Symptoms

Our bodies are good at self-healing. Most illnesses will pass quickly with some TLC. If your symptoms don’t pass in a short amount of time and they get worse as time passes, it’s time to get some help from a professional. You may only need some antibiotics, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Have Fun With The Family In The Great Outdoors

This post may contain affiliate links.

If you haven’t prepared anything this summer because times are tough and you can’t afford to splash out on cash this year – don’t beat yourself up about it. There are tons of different things that you can do as a family that’s fun, but doesn’t empty out your pockets.

If you’re one that likes adventures, then what’s nicer than exploring the forest with your children? Discover the outdoors and use this as a bonding experience as well as a learning one.

If you’ve never done anything like this before, then you don’t want to get too over ambitious by going any further than you need to. So do some planning beforehand and pick a nice spot that’s safe to go to, and isn’t too far out.

Wear clothes that you don’t mind you and your kids getting dirty. This is your chance to live a little on the wild side, so don’t worry about scuffing your shoes or staining your pants – it’s time to forget about things like that for a while. Let your kids have a run around and feel totally free for a moment or two.

Respect the forest

Before you leave, you should sit down with your family and have a talk about how to be respectful of the area, as well as the creatures that live there. Tell your children that the forest is home to so many other animals, and it’s important to keep it clean and safe for them so that they can live a happy life too.

Activities to do in the forest

If just going for a stroll isn’t enough for your kids (or you for that matter,) then come up with some fun activities that you can all do together as a family.

If you’re not too sure about what you can do, here are some ideas.

Make some art

Bring some sketchbooks and an array of different colored pencils. Have a sit down with everyone and pick out something you each like looking at. This could be a wild flower, an interesting looking leaf or even a pretty butterfly (if it sits still for long enough!)

You can then use the drawing as a memory of your family day out, and hang them in your kid’s bedrooms, or even use them as a card to give to someone.

Take pictures

Get your camera out and start taking photos. If you don’t want to worry about damaging your expensive goods – get some disposable cameras for the day. Because they’re so cheap, everyone could have a camera each to do with what they wish. This a very cool idea as children tend to have a completely different perspective on things, and they may just take some incredible looking photos of things that maybe you never even thought of. It’s exciting because you don’t know what you’re getting until the pictures are printed out!

A picnic

Now, who doesn’t love a good old picnic? And you don’t need much. Get a few blankets (depending on how many of you there is!) And bring some ready made sandwiches, salads and some naughty snacks of course.

After you’ve been walking for a while, find a nice looking tree to sit under, or if there’s water, like a stream or a small lake, cop a squat there and enjoy sharing food with one another under the sun.

Stop, listen and take it in

It’s a wonderful idea to take a moment to really appreciate where you are, so once in awhile, tell everyone to stop what they’re doing, stop talking and just listen. What can you all hear?

Ask your children to tell you what kind of noises there are, and what do they think is making them.

Keep your eyes open

Tell your children to be alert at all times. Examine the floor and the pretty plants, and the big tall trees. Touch them; feel the different textures and look at any wildlife that may be lurking around. See if you can spot buds that are sprouting through the ground, getting ready to blossom into something beautiful.

Another way you can encourage this is by playing a game of ‘I Spy.’

Bird watching

Some kids may not see the ‘fun’ side of this, so it’s your job to make it something a lot more exciting than it’s expected to be. Instead of using the ‘boring’ traditional bird book – print out some of your own pictures off the web and take them out with you. You can also make a checklist with the different breeds on. Then you can make your day out a bird catching quest, where you trek through the forest trying to locate the birds in your photos, crossing them off one by one as you do.

Collect the trash

A wonderful thing that you can do is come equipped with some trash bags and rubber gloves. Sure, the mess wasn’t made by you, but showing your children that you care about the environment and that you are willing to do some of the dirtier jobs in order to make it flourish again, is a very lovely message to put out there. And you could be saving lives for the furry friends that live in the forest too. You would be surprised about how many animals actually get hurt and killed because of litter lying around that they end up getting stuck in and aren’t able to escape.

Go and collect firewood

It may only be the early days of summer, but logs need time to dry out properly, so they are suitable for burning when the winter swings round. So doing this in advance is a great way to prepare for the colder months. Have a look online for the best log splitter for homeowners. You will then be able to cut the wood yourself with ease, and show your kids what it means to be sustainable and use what you have, without wasting what you don’t need.

Play games

Make sure that everyone is having fun and the kids aren’t getting bored. Children have a short attention span at times, and so you will want to keep their energy up and make it an awesome day out for them. If this means taking five minutes out to play tag, or have the best game of hide and seek ever – so be it. (Yes, parents, you can absolutely peek through your fingers when your children go off to hide – we wouldn’t expect otherwise!)

Design a scavenger hunt

Pack some things in your bag and then use them to hide around an area within the forest. Make a list of what you have hidden, and then your kids can cross them off as they go.

If you didn’t want to have to pack more than you needed though, you could use what’s already around you. Have a look for some interesting twigs and rocks, show your kids and let them inspect them for a couple of minutes, and then go and hide them! Even if you aren’t able to remember exactly what you hid, it’ll be a funny game to play.

Do some homework

If you’re feeling extra sneaky, you can even incorporate some of those dreaded maths equations and tricky words to spell along your adventure. If you packed some sweets, these could be given out if the answer is answered correctly. So don’t tell anyone what you’re doing, just shout out a word or a sum and see what happens. If someone gives you the response you were looking – give them some candy.

You could even go as far as coming up with a silly song to help them remember the correct answers.

Walking is great exercise

Not only is walking together and discovering an area a lovely thing to do as a family. But the benefits it has on your health are too good to miss out on.

Walking gets the heart pumping and the blood flowing, so you are essentially improving your circulation while keeping fit. But it isn’t just a physical thing either – getting out in the fresh air and going for a walk can clear the mind and relax any tension you may have. It also releases endorphins within your brain that make you feel good.  And it works exactly the same for your children too. They may not be aware of certain things how you would be, but their bodies will be working the same way.

Make it a family tradition

If this goes down well, and your children really enjoy the day out – make it into a regular thing – a tradition even! Things like this stay with a child forever, and one day when they are older, and they have their own family, they may just carry that tradition on. Family is such an important thing and should be cherished and nurtured, so being able to create memories like this from an early age can have some really positive impacts on your little one’s lives.

Lots of parents want to help their children at school however they can. For most, that means encouraging them to do their homework and stepping in whenever they need any help with it. Keeping in contact with the child’s teacher can also help parents to keep in touch with their child’s education and iron out any issues that may arise.

But do you want to do even more to help your child at school? Well, you will be happy to hear that there is something you could do that would not only help your own child but also help the other pupils as well as some teachers! You just need to volunteer!

Not sure how you can volunteer at your local school? Here are some opens that most schools try to get parent volunteers to fill.

pexels-photo-207691Image – Pexels

Lunchtime Supervisors

Everyone needs a break, even teachers! Because of this, most schools try to get volunteers to help supervise the children at lunch times and other break times. Then the teachers can grab some lunch and relax for an hour before they have to start afternoon lessons. It is incredibly easy to be a lunchtime supervisor, all you really need to do is watch the children while they are playing in the playground. You may also be required to organize the children before they go into the canteen for their lunch. If any child has an accident, you will need to be on hand to help them however necessary. Because of this, you may be required to take CPR classes and other first-aid training. Don’t worry about the cost of this, the school should cover all expenses. Once you are trained in health and safety, you should also be able to help out in a few other different parts of the school day, such as sports lessons.

Listen To Children Read

Many schools now have time set aside in the day for children to read to themselves. For young children, who are still learning to read, this time is often spent reading out loud to a teacher or teaching assistant. However, there are currently schools that are experiencing staff shortages. As a result, these schools need to find volunteers who will sit and listen to children read during these lessons. If your school is looking for volunteers, why not think about joining? It is very easy to carry out these types of roles as you just need to listen to children and help them with any pronunciation or reading issues.

Sports Day Supervisors

Even though sports day occurs just once a year, it can often be a struggle for schools to find suitable volunteers to help supervise children. That’s often because most parents work full-time jobs and can’t spare the time to help out. However, if you can, you will find that it is a very rewarding experience. You might be asked to help set up events before the day itself or to help run the events and activities on the actual day. If you do help out on the day, you will be expected to organize the kids and ensure that everything runs smoothly without any accidents!

pexels-photo-301943Image – Pexels

Field Trip Supervisors

Most schools also look for volunteer supervisors when they take the kids on field trips. If you are lucky, you might be able to go on international trips with the school! While you are on a field trip, you will probably be responsible for one small group of pupils. You will need to ensure that they are safe at all times and that they carry out any tasks and small assignments that they need to do during the trip. You will also need to make sure that no one goes missing, and that everyone turns up for transport on time. As the pupils on the field trip are representing the entire school in a different community, they will need to be ambassadors for the school. And that means you should ensure that they are well-behaved and polite at all times, as any poorly behaved pupils will give off a bad impression of the school. If you travel on an international school trip, then you might have to stay in accommodation with some pupils so that they are supervised at all times.

As you can see, there are a lot of different things you can help your kid’s school out with. Not only are they very rewardable, but you might also find them enjoyable as well! There will also be other ways you can volunteer at a school – you can always get in touch and ask them what types of volunteers they are currently looking for.

Choosing a High-Efficiency Toilet for Sustainability and Water Saving

This post may contain affiliate links.
Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

In 1980, Thomas Crapper’s plumbing company started producing flush toilet on a large scale. However, at that time many improvements on the toilet were made and this helps to meet the standards of sanitary waste disposal. Today toilet is one of the common uses of water in homes.

Dual Flush Toilets

In 1980 the dual flush toilet was developed in Australia by Bruce Thompson. This toilet consists of two push buttons at the top, one for half flush (liquid waste products) while the other is for full flush (solid waste products). This helps to save about 67% of water consumption in a household.

However, the half flush requires little water to operate and also lacks the siphoning power of the full flush toilet. The half flush usually uses up 0 .8 gallons of water while the full flush uses 1 .6 gallons of water. As a result of this, it is the most efficient way of minimizing water usage.

The dual system employs the pressure of water to get rid of the waste products, compared to the standard systems where the pressure of water with pneumatic air is used to get rid of waste products as shown in the diagram below. For this reason, the dual flush toilet uses little water. This method is comparatively cheaper and will cost as low as $29 to $30. Therefore, it will save the household a lot of money in the long term. For example, a household of two to five members can save about thirteen gallons of water in a day. The manufacturers of dual flush toilets claim that these kinds of toilets will last for a long period of time provided you use it properly.

dual flush toiletFig 1: Dual flush toilet

High-Efficiency Toilets

Generally, if you are operating at home or offices, installing high-efficiency toilets is necessary. This method helps to spend less water for flushing compare to the normal toilets, because it uses a little amount of water. This is the best method you need to watch out for each time you are shopping so as get a better result. As we all known, high-efficiency toilets help to uses just about 1.26 gallons for every single flush. This method saves about 20% over normal toilets.

Other Features to Consider For High-Efficiency Toilets

Super-charged edge wash: When flushing, water flows through the spaces in the edge of the toilet. The edge gets rid of the waste and cleaning action is common with the high-efficiency toilets.

An enlarged water spot: The presence of surface water helps to get rid of the solids and paper that stick to the sides of the bowl. As a result of this about 8 to 9-inch water spot is needed.

Larger trap way outlet size: The solid waste passageway must be two inches wide, usually higher efficiency toilets contain a wider opening so as to prevent blockage.

Support Pressure: Most household toilets rely on gravity; high-efficiency pressure models consist of a canister in the toilet tank which stores water and increases the pressure as water goes into the toilet. When flushing, the pressure forces water for a powerful flush action.

Bigger flush valve or flapper opening: The wider the opening of the flush valve located along the bowl and the tank the better. However, having a four-inch opening is 200% faster than the three-inch. While having a three-inch opening is 80% faster than the standard two-inch.

Shopping guide: whenever you want to buy a high-efficiency toilet, make sure you are aware of the features about modern toilet technology. You must be able to find a variety of products with the label of Water Sense that will also have some features illustrated here to meet your desires. A trained plumber can also help you choose the best variety that will work with your existing drains.

Toilet producers are manufacturing dual flush toilets and high-efficiency toilets for sale to the market. The American Standard, Kohler, Toto, Eljer and Gerber all offer the high-efficiency toilet option.

But, it is more reasonable in this unstable weather condition, financial turbulence and high costs of services like water waste disposal, to think about ways to reduce the water usage. High efficiency toilets are usually low and refund may be available in many different cases. Also, the effectiveness makes it a very bargain to install a high efficiency toilet in the bathroom.

In conclusion, if you did not want to change your toilets, you can consider changing one of your toilets in your house and observe how it will look like. You will definitely be pleased with the efficiency of the toilet.
