This has been written by Raakhee Stratton, a UK based eco-blogger and author of Easy Peasy Greeny. Currently studying towards a BSc Environmental Science and passionate about working towards sustainable living by learning and sharing ideas. In the last few years, we have seen a sharp rise in remote working. Some companies, although not all, have adopted and offered more flexible working options for their staff. Working from home offers several benefits like greater flexibility and reducing the time you spend commuting, not to mention the cost of commuting!

The Advantages of Utilising Proper Musculoskeletal Techniques for Desk Jobs

AD | Collaborative post Skeletal muscle is a type of muscle tissue that is connected to the skeleton and is responsible for voluntary movement. It is composed of muscle fibres that are made up of multiple protein filaments, including actin and myosin. Skeletal muscle is also capable of contracting and relaxing in order to produce movement. It is the most abundant type of muscle tissue in the human body, and it is found in all limbs and the majority of the trunk. Skeletal muscles are generally classified by their shape and the direction of their

Working from home hacks you won’t want to ignore

Working from home has best been described as being very similar to that ultimate fashion piece your season won’t work without. You can pull it off, and it feels amazing. But, that doesn’t mean to say that a lot of hard work doesn’t go into it, much like the effort it takes to stay in shape and feel your best. So with more people deciding to take on the working from home dream, I thought it would be an ideal time to share with you some of the best working from home hacks that you

How To Entertain Kids While Working At Home

AD | Collaborative post Kids are often a buzz of activities, always eager to have fun and get enough playtime. While that’s usually a beautiful thing to see, there are times when you’re working at home, or you have a pile of emails to reply to. And frankly, there are no suitable jobs for moms that wouldn’t require some time away from their kids.  This doesn’t mean you have to resort to killing their fun or locking them away in a room. Creative activities require little or no parental involvement, giving you enough time to

Creating The Right Work Environment At Home

AD | Collaborative post When you are self-employed, especially if you work from home, it’s easy to get into bad habits. The sofa becomes a make shift office, you can work in your pyjamas and you can scoff a whole cake while you work if you want to. The thing is, as nice as all of this sounds, it doesn’t really make for a good or productive working environment. Now that I’ve been self-employed full time for around 3 years I have learned quite a lot about how kind of environment I need at home. Separate

Struggling With Solitude

I got my first job when I was 13. It was a paper round and it didn’t last very long but I soon got another job working in a cafe thanks to my Great Aunt. There haven’t been many times where I haven’t had a job between 13 and 33 and a lot of the times I have worked in customer service in some way. Jobs like that mean being around people all of the time and there’s generally always someone to talk to. I loved chatting to customers and I had some real favourites

Feeling Frustrated With Funded Childcare

As a self-employed blogger I find myself on the HMRC website a lot more than I would like to. I have only been self-employed since August 2016 and only full time from July 2017 which isn’t very long at all. It’s safe to say that I don’t know what I’m doing a lot of the time when it comes to self-assessment tax returns, tax and National Insurance contributions, among other things. I think sometimes it’s easy to forget that someone else dealt with all of that when I was employed and it was all just

How Winning The Lottery Would Change Our Lives

I know that people say that money can’t buy you happiness but I don’t necessarily agree with that. You see, money is a bit of a struggle for us at the moment and I know that having more of it would make us all that little bit happier. I’m a bit of a daydreamer and often find myself thinking about how having a nice sum of money would change our lives. I’m not a greedy person and I certainly don’t need to win millions but Lottoland’s Lotto Plus has prizes of different amounts and the second
