Lifehacker in this very helpful Guide For Moving To A New Place says that “moving sucks” but I want to entirely disagree!
For me, moving is almost always a very positive thing.
There is nothing more exciting than moving into a new home and then to decide about where to put your furniture, exploring your new neighborhoods or constantly being reminded that your new place is so much better and nicer than the one you had previously.
Moving really only “sucks” if you do it ill-prepared.
Even if you do the majority of moving work yourself, if you take your time and spread it out or invite some friends it can actually be an entertaining and exciting thing to do and of course it will be much less work than doing everything on your own.
My friend Jeff from my recommended removals Bristol gave me the tip to always ask the removal firms what type of packages they offer.
Ask the movers ahead whether they have an “all-in-one” package which normally includes the packing, packing materials and the actual transport and how much it will be if you do the packaging instead. Know that if you do the packing you have to add the costs for materials such as cardboard boxes and wrapping paper! Then, sit down and calculate how much you would save if you pack yourself as compared to if the firm does all this for you. The reason Jeff gave me this tip is that the price differences there can be significant. So if you research a bunch of movers several weeks ahead of your move it can be a very good idea!
Last but not least, never let a move stress you out. The better you plan and the more time you take for the move, the higher the chances everything will go smoothly!

Furniture and those smaller accessories available for our home today can provide us plenty of ways to change the entire ambiance of single rooms to giving the entire home a new flair.
For me personally, it’s often furniture from natural materials that I prefer over the more “fancy” and stylish types available today.
Here in my blog post I want to give you some ideas about how to creatively change your home with some simple yet effective furniture tips.
If you have kids I recommend you look into bunk beds.
I had several large families ask me about advice with furnishings since they constantly ran into problems with available space in their homes. The one family had four kids while the other family had three.
This is what I always tell families with space problems: Get bunk beds instead and toss out those ordinary beds.
If you have three or more children, substituting your children’s beds with bunk beds will give you a whole lot of space back that was taken up previously.
With bunk beds too you have many choices today when it comes to styles and materials. Fortunately, you can get bunk beds from natural wood. I prefer those since wood goes with almost any taste and practically never goes out of style. Cheaper beds from plastic type materials can often break or become unsightly over time, wood is simply a time-less material that keeps and sometimes even increases in value over time.
When you want to get furniture such as bunk beds, you shouldn’t make any sacrifices in terms of quality. Good furniture can be an investment that can last for decades.

The Launch Of The China Jockey Club Last Monday
The Chinese hired Peter Phillips, the Queen’s eldest grandchild to launch a horse racing industry that is supposed to rival the UK’s. Just this past week, Mr Phillips flew to Beijing for the official unveiling of the new China Jockey Club. The China Jockey Club will be the center point for China’s new and upcoming racing industry.
Many may perhaps laugh at the idea that China’s horse racing industry would be successful but those didn’t consider that it has the backing of the Chinese government.
The importance of the horse racing venture to the Chinese authorities was highlighted last Monday at a formal ceremony in the Chinese capital.
Industry insiders predict that the potential profits from the China Jockey Club could be enormous. Currently, horse racing in China is limited to a handful of meetings a year. Most of the tracks in China’s are still decrepit with only a few spectators for each race. Reason for that is the current ban of gambling by the Chinese government.
With the new China Jockey Club now backed by the Chinese government, horse racing in China may well take off and draw millions of visitors and millions in profit. You can learn more about horse racing betting at the UK’s top website for horse racing tips.

Ergonomic furniture, whether it is modern ergonomic office furniture or cozy furniture for your own home is much more than furniture that is simply more comfortable. If you look at Wikipedia, in their definition of ergonomics it says “ergonomics is the practice of designing products, systems or processes to take proper account of the interaction between them and the people that use them.”
In other words, ergonomic furniture can also help us to work easier and more efficiently but of course this is only one benefit of it.
The other major benefit of ergonomic furniture is that it can actively support our health and well-being.
Since this type of furniture such as ergonomic chairs or ergonomic office desks are designed so that we can work more comfortably with less strain on our bodies, it means that many health issues that would otherwise result from constant strain or bad posture can be avoided.
Ergonomic furniture helps to prevent common issues that people may experience including but not limited to back pains, wrist pains, eyestrain and many more such health problems.
In simple speak, ergonomic furniture is healthier! With more comfort and less bodily strains by using ergonomic and more comfortable chairs and desks comes also higher productivity and efficiency. Obviously, someone who is hurting while at work cannot be as productive and motivated as someone who doesn’t experience all those problems. A non-ergonomic workplace may make it impossible to work for extended hours, it may also be the reason for health problems such as fatigue, migraines or the inability to concentrate.
If you happen to be a business owner you should consider whether investing in modern and comfortable ergonomic chairs and desks would be worth it. This type of furniture will benefit you and your employees alike. Of course you can and should also look into whether you can replace the one or the other chair in your own home for a more comfortable one. This can be in particular important if you spend lengthy hours in front of a personal computer or TV. Sometimes it is rather simple things that can make a huge difference and available ergonomic furniture is sure among them.

The Form School is a well known school of Feng Shui. This philosophy deals with the energy in a space and how it can be improved by intentional selection and assignment of furniture.
The Form School works not only for homes but can also be applied when it comes to the design for boats and yachts.
Over at The Huffington Post I found some good Feng Shui tips for Yachts and Boats.
There you can learn anything about good Feng Shui for your boat, from proper door alignment to balancing the abundance of water energy that you will find on any boat.
You can also learn about how to design and re-design your boat with suitable accessories. Often, it’s only small things you have to do to balance the energies in your yacht such as placing Chinese coins at spiral cases or spicing things up by placing fresh, red flowers.
