How to organise your life and feel good?

How to juggle/manage and organise the following?:

  • work
  • develop a business in spare time
  • home/social life
  • healthy eating
  • staying fit
  • personal development
  • and so on..

Here is my take

Time management is something that doesn’t come to us all spontaneously. One of the main reason for this can be that there is so much to do and achieve in life, but we have very limited time and we find it difficult to fit all aspects of life in one time.

Therefore, we feel unfulfilled and underachieved. Does this sound familiar to you? If so, continue reading.

What is time?

In my humble opinion, time is an illusion, which we must utilise to schedule tasks and create a successful and fulfilled life. We achieve goals, shift our perspective of life from A to B, which means we learn and develop, and fulfil our destiny.

What to do with the time?

We can best optimise time by scheduling important tasks necessary to move forward in life. Tasks can be combined but not multi tasked.

I mean if tasks can be combined simultaneously. For example going for a run or a session in the gym with your partner, friend or a family member, you’ve combined staying fit and relationships together.

If you listen to an audio book or a podcast or even your favourite comedy show, you are combining personal development with relationships. But make sure these tasks are fun and enjoyable.

How to schedule life?

That is the real question; My personal experience to achieving the scheduled tasks is to get self-disciplined. Self-discipline is like a muscle, it takes time to show on the surface, but the perseverance and consistency is the key.

When you push yourself
to get a task done when you don’t feel like it, that’s the mind-set which will make you grow and become a goal achiever.

Self-discipline will help you become more driven to success by getting the tasks done and achieving goals.

This process will help you develop self-belief, confidence thus positive habits. So it’s a win win situation. Being clear on what is important for you and committing to it, is vital part of the self-discipline.

An example of this could be, is to be accountable of achieving a goal and rewarding
yourself.

You can even announce your deadline to the people in your social circle. So, they can remind you from time to time and keep you motivated of fulfilling their expectation of you. This way you will feel more accountable and get self-disciplined in no time.

Set routine and tasks

Having meaningful tasks and routine can set you to success. Break down your big goals into smaller chunks and incorporate them into your daily routine. Even if you accomplished a smaller part of your bigger task every day, you’ll have your 7 pieces of it done by the end of the week. That’s not a bad progress.

You can also have set jobs per day of the week. For example:

  • Saturday – family time/outings
  • Sunday – cooking/meal prepping cleaning, getting ready for the week
  • Monday – you can set aside an hour to plan for your side hustle e.g. if you are a blogger, then planning
    how many posts you want to do in a week. In that week plan by writing down ideas of your posts, getting the relevant materials ready images, videos, research
  • Tuesday – set aside 30 minutes to write a post and 30 minutes to edit and upload
  • Wednesday – go for a run
    or gym session with a friend and listen to the motivational podcast audio books to and back
  • Thursday – do a blog post and take as much time as you need
  • Friday – engage with your audience, reply to their comments etc

This is my typical weekly routine. I need to give up on the unnecessary distraction in my life in order to achieve my big life goals and feel good. What about you?

Another aspect to being productive whilst feeling good is to guard the time. Whether you are working for someone as a 9-5 job or working for yourself.

It’s amazing to have technology at hand these day, but try not to get tempted to check emails during out of work time.

As Mel Robbins states in her The 5 Second Rule is that we often fill up the time with whatever we need to accomplish. In other words, whether a task takes an hour or 10 minutes we are likely to use that whole chunk of time.

I would recommend setting a time of each task and getting a job done within that time. You will soon realise you will be using the mad-brain power to shrink that time container and saving yourself some ‘me’ time to take a break as a priority.

It’s important to have a cut-off time from your daily chores and to look after yourself. Remember if you don’t fill your own cup, you’ve nothing left to offer from an empty.

The jobs, the to-do lists you are trying to accomplish are always going to be there. But taking the time out to enjoy life is crucial for a balanced health and wellbeing.

I hope this post has helped you to organise your life and feel good about it.

Best Tried and Tested Remedies to Cure Stomach Problems!

My personal take: ‘when nothing works this works’!

Does food make you sick and you feel helpless as nothing works to cure your stomach problem? Then, carry on reading for a quick remedy.

Personally, anything I ate made me feel bloated, lethargic and low in mood.

After many years of this digestive problem, I’ve finally found a couple of very simple remedies that cured my sensitive/hyper stomach.

I first tried the Centaurim drops by A.Vogel when the stomach issues were unbearable.

Energised Me!

After the first usage I felt more energetic and felt the food digested better and I felt my normal self. This bitter herb is particularly effective for the acid reflux from my stomach to my throat and helped promote a good digestion.

Ginger!

Alongside the Centaurim drops by A.Vogel, I introduced the ginger remedy or shall I say I ate it accidentally and guess what, I felt fantastic! Then I tried it again, why wouldn’t I!?

It worked again and again. All I did was juiced the fresh ginger with some fresh, preferably organic carrots and voila! I had this fresh carrot/ginger juice first thing in the morning.

Ginger Contains a property called a Gingerol. This Substance has very powerful medicinal properties especially in treating inflammation, chronic indigestion, and morning sickness.

A Final Word

Personally, I would advise you give it a go to the herbal or home remedies but do your research first to make sure you’re not allergic to anything or if it is not going to interfere with any other remedies you’re taking.

I usually tend to always gravitate towards more natural/herbal remedies, which have the fewest or no side effects.

Best wishes to your poor tummy 🙂

How to Cure Stomach acidity / indigestion / IBS

Do you suffer from stomach acidity / acid reflux / gas / indigestion / IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)?

Then you have landed on the right website – because I’m going to give you a very simple and cheap solution!

Here goes my tried and tested natural home remedy to help or even cure the above mentioned issues or symptoms.

The answer is GINGER!

Ginger is a staple to Chines medicine. When consumed in small doses, it helps to alleviate acid reflux, reduce the swelling of the oesophagus, ease nausea and muscle pain. But if you use in high doses, it can make your symptoms worse. So please don’t go crazy with ginger consumption.

How I use it

Once peeled the skin, ginger can be grated, grinded, blended, shaved to add in your food. I personally tend to chop it up in small pieces and add it to my smoothies.

I hope this little post will be helping you out and get rid of your stomach acidity / acid reflux / gas / indigestion / IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

I will appreciate a comment left further below, letting me know how you got on 🙂

How to Manage My Time Well

How to overcome the overwhelming feeling – MANAGE YOUR TIME WELL!

Reduce your anxiety immediately by this simple and effective formula below.

My Own Formula

If you have a lot going on in your life and managing your chores is something that makes you anxious then here is the simple, but tried and tested idea:

  • Write down all the jobs you have to do in the day on a piece of paper.
  • Then next to each job write down roughly how long it will take you to complete the job and be realistic about it
  • Also don’t cram things in unnecessarily as this will make you even more on the edge!
  • Just prioritise the tasks based on the time you have in the day and leave the rest for the next day and so on.

Hope this helps you the way it has been helping me. Since I’ve been following these steps it has made a massive difference to my life, and now I have more time to do things I couldn’t fit in my daily routine.

I Created Our Website in 30 Seconds – How long will it take you?

Is it difficult to create a website?


You may feel daunted when it comes to creating a website. I know exactly how that feels, as I have been there myself at the beginning of our journey. Actually this was one of the reasons, or should I say the ‘main reason’ for not starting a business online many years ago, was not knowing how to create a website, even though I am a tech savvy, well kind of. I thought back then what you are thinking now! “IT MUST BE VERY DIFFICULT TO CREATE AND RUN A WEBSITE”. How wrong was I, and you will also experience this after joining and creating your own website, and say the same about yourself!

“I created our website, www.lifestyletipsandhacks.com in 30 seconds, but can you create your website in 30 seconds?”.

Learn What is Affiliate Marketing – A Beginners Guide

Affiliate Marketing, FREE for beginners


It is interesting to see how many of us have got no clue about what ‘affiliate marketing’ is, yet most of us are shopping online by clicking on affiliate links.

The most recent and interesting example happened to my very own self only a couple of days ago:

Interesting Visit


I went to see my General Practitioner (GP) for a routine check up. As recently being on a high dose of affiliate marketing, I was desperate to pour out my wisdom of affiliate marketing to anyone and everyone. I was even tempted to convert people I was meeting in the lifts, or colleagues at the reception of a health centre, with whom it would have been very strange to talk about this out of the blue, this was one of the reasons which refrained me from pouring out my excitement, as well as being labelled as ‘nerdy’ (which I think I am, but no one else needs to know that, apart from myself and yourself)!

Shocking Discovery


Anyway, I went to see my GP, who coincidentally happens to be an extremely friendly doctor, and him knowing that I also work in the same field as him, he sometimes even asks ‘ME’, what should he be recommending me in terms of medication! it was very nice and ‘friendly’ of him, but out of friendliness he, I think (in my opinion) forgets that he is the GP not me! Anyway on this occasion, you can imagine what might have happened? OK, I’ll let you visualize, while I explain….

To be honest I was more interested to share ‘our’ (he knows my hubby too) venture of online marketing than getting the routine check up done. As I was telling him, he got more and more excited (as if, it was his own business)! I told him what kind of stuff we were doing, e.g. building a website, writing contents, blogs, reviews etc. He continued listening to me, with full interest and after ten minutes of my ‘hyper active speech’ of affiliate marketing, he interrupted me with the following question…

“Is affiliate marketing something to do with mindset and motivation?” because he is very aware that I have personal interests in these areas. At this very moment I felt I must have been talking in a different language in excitement and I didn’t realise that he hasn’t understood me.

Anyway, after this experience with my GP, it helped me think and I put myself in the GPs shoes (only imagined) that how many other business terms out there do I really know about? If they don’t concern me, would I really be learning about them? My honest answer would be NO! The only time that I’ll actually be looking into something, is, if I have a personal interest or benefit.

I can honestly admit, that I never knew about affiliate marketing until my burning desire to change my lifestyle really encouraged me from within, and hit the Google search engine of “how to make money online”, the rest is history.

So Let’s get into the actual purpose of this article, which is ‘What is Affiliate Marketing’?


Affiliate Marketing is one of the major business idea of the Online World. Affiliate marketing is when you promote other peoples or companies products on your website by reviewing, testing, comparing or via personal recommendation.
Often you’ll need to write blog posts and reviews to discuss pros and cons before publishing them on your website.

“IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL YOUR REVIEW POSTS ARE HONEST AND INTERESTING”

Then the next step will be to advertise your website on other social media platforms, such as Google+, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Pinterest and even the old fashion way of word of mouth. Also, Via Google rankings to get the traffic flowing into your website.

Customer Trust


The key to building a customer trust is by giving value to the people who are looking for genuine reviews, recommendations of the products/services they are looking into buying. If you have been honest with your reviews/recommendations and people bought the product(s) via your affiliate link(s) within the review/blog, and they are happy with the product/service, they will come back again and again if they are looking for something else. This is because you have become an authority in the visitors eyes and have built a trust with them. HONESTY PAYS ALWAYS!”

In the online affiliate marketing business you’ll be acting like a ‘middle person’ of the sale and be viewed as a store front of the company’s product you’re promoting.

As part of an affiliate marketers role you’ll be required to be interactive with your visitors and customers to help them with the buying cycle (researching, reading reviews and buying).

In order to generate revenue from the affiliate links, you’ll have various posts/blogs to help and support the people with the buying cycle. You can promote anything, but it’ll be an advantage to promote products and services that you use or have used in the past. This way you’ll have enough knowledge and confidence to support people in the decision-making.

Products can be from any niche, as there are tons people looking for whatever you’re promoting.

You’ll just need to make your contents around the products interesting and interactive in order to convert the searches into sales.

The only expense you’d need to consider is buying a domain (website address) and hosting your website. However, the good news is that if you join our personal tried, tested and recommended, which is wealthy affiliate, where you’ll be able to get not only 1 but two FREE domains (website address) and hosting is also included all for FREE.

Yes, I know it sounds too good to be true – read our full review of wealthy affiliate and you’ll understand further what I mean.

Opportunities in the online world are limitless, so think how much you can do with two free websites.

Generating an income via affiliate marketing would be a dream come true even while you’re sleeping! You can work from anywhere around the world so long you have an internet connection and a technology device (laptop/PC, tablet or even a mobile phone) and you’ll be up and running.

So just to sum up:


Affiliate marketing means you’ll be promoting others products online by writing contents around them. You’ll need a website to do so as this is where you’ll publish it. A business can be setup up for free (just need your time and commitment).

Things to be grateful for in life

Are you sad and miserable in your life? Are you low in confidence and not sure how to tackle it?

If the answers are YES, then keep reading for a simple solution.

Simply Be Grateful

A simple and effective way to improve your wellbeing is to be grateful for whatever you have. Giving gratitude instantly alleviates any negative energy or low feeling.

If only you stopped and thought about everything you have in your life, that another poor soul does not have, then this will automatically make you appreciate and give gratitude.

Remember, there is always somebody out there that will always NOT have something that you are gifted with.

DON’T look up and keep blindly wishing for things you don’t have, LEARN to appreciate and give gratitude to ALL the things you HAVE in your life.

My Own Formula

My very own tried and tested and effective way of being grateful is to:

Think of 10 things you are grateful for at bedtime, just before you sleep and the first thing when you wake up.

This will allow you to leave your subconscious mind on a positive vibration, which results in manifestation of your desire. The key is that the more you are grateful, the more you will attract of that gratitude.

What are your 10 things you are grateful for before sleeping and when you wake up?

Hope this helps you the way it’s helped me. So start being grateful from now and see the difference for yourself.

Happy living 🙂

Is the Wealthy Affiliate a Scam or What? – Our personal experience

Wealthy Affiliates Review – Let’s Dive into It


There are many online Affiliate Marketing programmes and courses out there that claim to “make you big bucks” online. But to tell you the truth, not all of them are what they claim to be (so please be careful of them).

Personally, we (myself and my wife) went through a number of them (read our story here) and all of them resulted in 0% income and instead we lost a lot of our money. Then we came across Wealthy Affiliates.

We did our comprehensive research and read many reviews, but came across nothing substantially that was negative, which itself was a surprise to us. But, still we joined with caution (because of our past experiences with other scamming Affiliate Marketing programmes) and signed up to the Starter Membership, which was totally risk free as it did not cost anything (totally FREE for life). The rest is history – read our journey to Wealthy Affiliate.
