So kickstart the day with a happy routine – something that will make you energized and look forward to the rest of the day!

Helpful things to know about varicose veins and how to heal them

For anyone who may not know, varicose veins are a condition where veins (mostly in the leg area) become enlarged, swollen, or raised. While this may not seem like an all too serious condition, anyone who has experienced these types of symptom will understand how unpleasant it can be. Not only do many find it an extremely painful condition to experience, but people can also find themselves feeling insecure and not wanting other people to see their legs. This can become very inconvenient during the warmer months and some relationships can suffer because of the insecurities. Thankfully, there are plenty of methods out there that can reduce the severity of any related symptoms, that can reduce the appearance, and in some cases, remove the condition completely. The only issue with this is that there is so much different information out there when it comes to this topic, that people can easily become confused as to what to do in order to help themselves. Similarly, many people will research this topic and come across treatments that are invasive and that make them feel uncomfortable. This can include options such as surgically removing the issue, blasting the issue with a laser, or something else entirely. For those who want to get as much information as possible so that they can make an informed decision about what to do to help themselves or a loved one, here are some helpful things to know about varicose veins as well as how to heal them.

Varicose veins can sometimes be hereditary

It can be helpful for some people to know that they aren’t doing anything wrong to cause their symptoms because varicose veins can sometimes be hereditary. This means that one of both of their parents may have experienced something similar, as did their grandparents. While having a family member that experiences this condition will make it more likely for a person to experience it too, it doesn’t mean that preventative measures cannot be taken to reduce the chances of this occurring. For example, many people who work in jobs where they have to stand for long periods of time will often find that they can experience varicose veins. A quick and simple way to avoid this is by wearing compression stocking which will help promote healthy blood flow and healthy vessels. Another thing that people can do to avoid varicose veins is to elevate their legs above their heart level for a certain period of time at the end of every day. This again will help support blood flow and can also be a great way to unwind and relax after a busy day.

A sedentary lifestyle can make an impact

What many people out there may not know is that varicose veins can be caused by a sedentary lifestyle. As more and more people are sitting in offices for long periods of time in this day and age, more people are experiencing symptoms. Because of this, more workplaces are raising awareness and are implementing suggested activities that workers can implement. Such activities can be taking the stairs instead of an elevator, going for a walk outside at lunchtime, and working from a stand-up desk. Others will do squats or lunges every half an hour and some workplaces are even implementing free fruit bowls that workers can help themselves too. The reason for these initiatives is because more often than not, simple lifestyle changes are all that is required to reduce the severity of symptoms which can restore confidence in sufferers once more.

Financial

Let’s jump into the topic right away – if you’re a financial professional or on the way to being one, you have to watch these movies at least once in your life. The list is right here – make your pick and start away:

  1. The Wolf of Wall Street:
    This movie is must watch for every finance guy and gal out there! The career-high performances delivered by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, you definitely cannot miss this one. The Wolf of Wall Street is based on real events, making it even more interesting to watch. So take some time off this weekend and watch this one right away.
  2. Wall Street:
    Well, this and the movie above are two separate entities – no sequel, or prequel! But again Wall Street has to be on your list. The most popular phrase from this movie “Blue Horseshoe loves Anacott Steel” became such a hit, that it was repeated and used for a long time after the film was released. It’s all about insider trading – the tricks of the trade, the side effects of practicing the trade and everything else you need to know about it!wall street
  3. Rogue Trader:
    The name itself gives out the probable story – a reckless and brazen trader, who hid the losses the firm generated from the superiors, but was later exposed as a full-blown scam emerged out. A perfect movie to watch to learn the principles of risk management and financial foresight and acumen – to make sure you catch up with it right away.
  4. Barbarians at the Gates:
    Centred on the leveraged buyout of RJR Nabisco, this too is based on tur incidents. You’ll be left shell-shocked at the greed and obsessive nature of the CEO of RJR Nabisco, which reveals nothing but an impulsive and incompetent attitude, which is not at all suited for a person of his stature and position,
  5. American Psycho:
    Not directly related to finance, this movie delves deeper – into the lives of financial professionals. It shows the harsh reality of the financial world which cuts off these professionals from the realities of life. This movie is an eye-opener for those who slog by their work desks all day and don’t take time off for themselves.
  6. The Shawshank Redemption:
    My all-time favorite, the Shawshank Redemptions is a must watch for not only financial people but every person on earth! It’s a movie that showcases grit, determination, and use of intellect to get what you want in life. A must watch!

Binge watching this weekend – I hope you do!

How to save – Tips for youngsters

money

As soon as you graduate and land up in a job, the feeling of excitement and independence overpowers you. You begin spending irrationally on things not required at all too. And it’s too late before you realize that this reckless behavior doesn’t help you at all. So before this regret phase comes in, go through the tips we have for you – they’ll help you to save! And yes, thank us later!

Prepare a budget:
Well, it may sound all traditional – but this thing called ‘budget’ which you’ve heard quite often growing up from your parents is really important. Segregate your income into priorities, necessities, and luxuries. Write it down so that you can stick to the budget you have prepared.

Right away:

You have to begin saving the day you start earning. Make sure the amount of savings goes off to where it has to at the beginning of the month itself. This ensures you won’t get tempted to use this money when you run out of funds at the end of the month.fundInvest:
You don’t have to be that carefree hippie soul who isn’t bothered about the future. Imagine a rainy day where you have no umbrella and nowhere to go either – that’s what will happen when you have no money in hand when you desperately need some! The best way out is to look out for schemes and funds which suit your budget – these are specially tailor made to suit the needs of youngsters who have just started earning. Invest in these. You can always increase the amount whenever you wish to.

Me-fund:
From every salary, make sure you take out a little me-fund. This fund is to cater to all your hobbies, passions, things you love to do. Its no use working so hard and not being able to enjoy the fruit of your labor. So do it, it may not be a huge amount, just an amount enough to fund that baking class, library subscription or the fees of your guitar class. You owe it to yourself.

 

 

Cut some slack:
While you are expected to stick to the budget you have prepared so meticulously, there are months when you aren’t able to go through with your budget because of many possible reasons – emergencies, birthdays, celebrations, unexpected expenses, repairs, and the list goes on. At such times it’s impossible to stick to your budget, and it’s perfectly fine – you can cut yourself some slack!
