6 Ways to Stay Healthy when Traveling for Business Trips

 Disclosure: This is a collaborative post. Please welcome today's contributor.

Business trips can be a great experience, you’re getting to go on a small journey for work in possibly an unfamiliar area. The job usually pays for everything such as the accommodation, transportation, and even the food. It can be very tempting to indulge in junk food, especially if you’re on business trips often. Traveling gives us this relaxed mindset, even if we are traveling for work. This relaxed mindset tends to make us gain weight from indulging in unhealthy food, plus there may be little to no time to work out either.

I Made 4 New Purchases this Week. One is Going Back.


The second thing I got was this recycled laptop backpack from Fenrici. I like the Purple Terrazzo print, but what is most important to me is that it is going to protect the things I bring home from work!!! It's rainy season here in Florida, and most days when I'm getting off of work, the rain is coming down in buckets right now. I'm not complaining, it's always nice to have rain, but it surely does wreak havoc on my shoes AND on my work laptop that I take back and forth some nights. I tried to just use my own computer, but it doesn't have the same programs my work computer does, so it's just easier to bring that one home. It's not safe to do so in the rain though. Everyone knows a drop of water can fry a laptop faster than heat can fry an egg and that is no bueno for me. That front pocket is big enough for the charger, but there's also a lot of room inside, even after my laptop is tucked inside.

A Healthy Body Comes From A Healthy Mind

 Disclosure: This is a collaborative post. Please welcome today's contributor.

Mental health corresponds to a state of well-being and balance between your thoughts, your emotions and your behavior. What is good mental health? It is simply the satisfaction of the mind and the psychological state. Mental health is often associated with a negative aspect and it is high time to take the restrictions off of the subject. It's true, you don't have to be in burnout or depression to start taking care of your mental health. We all go through this: low morale, period of demotivation, or stress due to work or studies. There are solutions to find a better mood and take care of yourself. Meditation, sport or nutrition, we give you all our tips to preserve your mental health and boost it! Simple things such as joining a gym, going on more day trips, or treating yourself to a favorite meal. What comes to mind for me is going to the Local Steakhouse; since they have huge salads for me and hearty steaks for the rest of my crew.

With back to school in full swing, for better or for worse, parents are spending a lot of money to get their children ready. That means a rather large number of parents are looking for ways to cut corners and/or find ways to make up for the extra spending. QuickRewards offers a great option. With surveys that pay from $.50 to $10, there is something for everyone. I do want to note though, that most surveys pay $.50 to $1.00 as is common.

So you're moving to a different country? You must be overjoyed. Are you terrified? Perhaps a hybrid of the two? That's perfectly natural! You may have a group of supporters on your side, but you also have those pessimists, or at the very least sceptics, who express their envy or claim that they could "never" pick up and move across the globe like you. Put all of that out of your thoughts; you have a lot to do before you go to another country!

Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials! Your wedding is going to be one of the most beautiful days of your life, but the thing about your wedding is that it’s also likely to be pretty stressful! You have to do what you can in your planning to reduce your stress as much as possible and one of the best ways to do that is to bring on a wedding planner.

5 Health Benefits of Drinking Coffee

Disclosure: I received a product sample or a discount to use towards purchase. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


When your morning view looks like this, you know it's going to be a good day. A lot of you know I am a coffee girl through and through. It's been a favorite beverage of mine for quite a few years now. I was pretty late to the game though, on enjoying this fabulous rich roasted beauty of a drink. In fact, I didn't start drinking it until I already had kids in middle school! I remember distinctly how my appreciation of it started. The college I worked for was remodeling and we got taken out of our big, beautiful offices with a view and put into various trailers around the campus that we had to share with several other people. It was temporary, but a totally different experience for awhile, and two of the people in my area would bring in a box of coffee for everyone, every day. Let me tell you, it smelled so good (remember, it was a small space, so the whole 'office' smelled like coffee) that I ended up pouring a cup for myself, fell in love, and the rest is history. So, I knew that I loved coffee, especially an organic and succulent coffee like Nora's Naturals, but I didn't know it was good for you too (in moderation, of course)! Now I do!
