1. Make Money via Google Adsense: Google Adsense is no doubt on the top of the when it comes to earning money obnline via your blog, Google Adsense works on the basis of CPC (cost per click) ie you get a certain amount of money each time someone clicks on Google Adsense adverts displaying on your blog, though there policy is somewhat strict and difficult to get an approval but if you have followed my blog post from the previous post where i laid emphasis on how to start a blog to this very post i do not think your blog would find it difficult getting an approval, if you do not have there adverts on your blog already, you can sign up via www.google.com/adsense

3. Make Money via Affiliate Marketing: When we talk about affiliate marketing if you don't know already, it's basically telling your audience of the availability of certain product or services and when they in turn purchase via your link you get a commission. Top of the list for me are Amazon, Ebay, Shareasale and Alibaba. but there are many more which you can always google.

4. Make Money via E Books: This is basically putting some lecture on a subject matter you have knowledge on in a digital form and selling it out and making your profits.

Those are the ways through which you can start a blog and make money, Actually there are lot more but those are top on the list that many people have tested and confirmed.

4 Things Millennials Can Teach Us About Self-Care

4 Things Millennials Can Teach Us About Self-Care

We care about a lot of things in today’s modern world such as our jobs, children or environment. However, how much time do we dedicate to caring about ourselves? Maybe the more important question is how much encouragement do we get for self-care?

Millennials have brought a new set of values and expectations into both the personal and professional lives of all generations. When it comes to self-care, everyone can learn a lot from these seemingly selfie-obsessed 20-somethings. When you are feeling overwhelmed, overworked and overburdened, try a few of these timeless and timely self-care strategies.

Spend some quality time with man’s best friend
Your dog is your lifeline to positivity. Self-care is a blend of action and attitude, and playing with your dog on a regular basis can set the standard for a happier day. The joy and excitement our dogs often feel can rub off on us the more time we spend with them. They fill our lives with emotional stability, exercise, structure and unconditional love. Dogs help to take away anxiety, stress and depression.

Stay hungry for experience and adventure
This world is big and beautiful and boundless. You don’t have to leave your own city to embrace new experiences that empower you as a person. When you thirst for newness and adventure, you are giving yourself the gift of growth. Self-care is often about slowing down, but sometimes it can benefit from speeding up. Challenge yourself with new experiences. Broaden your perspectives with new adventures. For example, studies show that even just looking at photos of a vacation can cause a surge in mood. Taking vacations that excite you in the moment, will also excite you later on.

Seek balance with compassion for yourself
Self-care isn’t about being selfish; it’s about finding a balance between prioritizing yourself and prioritizing everyone else. When searching for that balance is challenging, remember to be kind to yourself. When we’re stressed, we often feel guilty, like we aren’t smart enough or talented enough to handle our own lives. In reality, it may be that the role we play in society is too inflexible or expectations are unrealistic. Self-care starts with having compassion for yourself in these moments of perceived failure. Understand that you can learn just as much from proving yourself right as proving yourself wrong.

Be flexible in mind, heart and body
Situations where we cling to expectations often lead to some level of worry, anxiety and disappointment. That’s what make flexibility such a crucial component of self-care. Being flexible with the direction life goes can help you adapt to change more smoothly. Flexibility can help you forgive others — and yourself— so you can let go of feelings of guilt, anger or shame, which severely limit your capacity for self-care. Getting good exercise and eating the right foods energizes your mind and body, helps you deflect stress and reduces the risk of injury or illness.

Read a book, take a bath, hop on a bike, take a class, practice yoga, meditate, paint your nails, get a massage, unplug your phone, play with your dog, go on a trip— these suggestions are just the tip of the self-care iceberg. It’s easy to neglect taking care of ourselves when we feel busy or overwhelmed, but, remember, self-care makes us more productive, helps us to focus and improves self-esteem. Self-care can be a hard habit to start, but it is worth it. If you can find 20 minutes in your day and work on one self-care act during that time for a month, you might see a substantial difference.

dangers of alcohol abuse

WASHINGTON - From a beer at a ballgame to a wine tasting with friends, alcohol is a regular part of life for many Americans.
However, some experts say the health risks of alcohol should not be taken lightly. A new study finds alcohol use is responsible for almost one in 10 deaths among people ages 15-49 across the globe. And it concluded the only safe level of alcohol consumption is no drinking at all.
As a treatment consultant with American Addiction Centers, Joan Burger-Holt said she's seen how alcohol abuse can damage lives, and believes it's just as serious a concern as the opiate crisis. "The opiate, it's a snap of the finger. You can overdose just like that," Burger-Holt said. "Alcohol, it's a slow-dying death. Alcohol is an equal crisis. It does not get equal attention."
According to the U.S. Surgeon General, about 88,000 deaths are attributable to an alcohol-related cause - more than twice the estimated number of opioid overdose deaths. For those age 15-49, the study found tuberculosis, road injuries and self-harm are the leading causes of alcohol-related death. For ages 50-plus, it is cancer. Although many studies have touted the health benefits of moderate alcohol use, such as drinking red wine, this study contends that research should be re-evaluated.
Unlike illegal drug use, Burger-Holt pointed out that drinking alcohol is socially acceptable. In her view, that makes it easy to disregard its dangers, even from the depths of addiction. "A lot of times I'll see clients that are in hospital, and they're physically ill, kidneys shut down, liver has shut down, they can't breathe on their own. Oftentimes they go into a coma, alcohol poisoning," she said. "But in their mind, they don't have an alcohol problem; they're still there for a medical problem." Burger-Holt said she understands there are varying perceptions of the amount of alcohol consumption considered safe. And she recommends people consider health risks that could make drinking particularly dangerous for them, such as a family history of addiction or mental illness. "A lot of times, people will self-medicate, drink, because they had a hard day at work. Well, that could be detrimental," she said. "Or people could drink to relieve their anxiety, or drink because they're depressed."
The only protective effect of alcohol the study found was a reduced risk of heart disease. But the authors concluded any small benefit did not outweigh the risks. For technical assistance: 888-320-9610, info@soundbitesource.com

Hacks to Organize Your Refrigerator

Cleaning the fridge is one of the most daunting tasks in your house cleaning regime. Especially if it’s been several months, the fridge can be a dirty place. Having a clean fridge is not only rewarding but much better for your health. Your food will be safe and you’re much less likely to experience contamination or food poisoning.

You should deep clean your fridge about once a quarter. This is about four times per year. If you keep up with it, you’re unlikely to experience too much of a dirty job. This post from Simply Self Storage about how to organize your fridge takes you through the process of cleaning out the fridge from start to finish.

Step 1: Clean out the fridge entirely. Empty it out, wipe down the surfaces and reassemble the fridge. Add a deodorizer while you’re in there!
Step 2: Take out the drawers and soak them in warm water. Give any caked on grease or grime a scrub.
Step 3: Once it’s clean, put a box of baking soda in and get to organizing!


Upper Shelf Organization Hacks

1. Eat Me First Box: Designate a box for food that’s about to expire and put it at the top of the fridge.
2. Lazy Susan: Using a lazy Susan in the fridge makes things so much easier! You’ll never lose anything back there again.

3. Hang Baskets: If you can, stick things to the side of the fridge for extra storage.
