For the past 2 days, I saw 2 incredible rooms with the most beautiful geometric rugs. It really got me thinking..do I need a geometric rug? Maybe on my stairs or in my office. YES!! I think I do. I of course went to Google for some inspiration and found some really fab options. Statement rugs are in!!! They are all the rage and I need to hop on this wagon for sure!! The David Hicks carpets are my absolute favorites. I definitely like the hexagon design but they all are beautiful!!! I have to say, as usual, I saved the best for last. The room designed by Nina Draddy stopped me in my tracks. I love love love it. That is exactly how I want my office to look….someday!!!!!
My Favorite by Nina Draddy Designs…. This is what my new home office is going to look like!!!
Calling all our guy readers…Just because you’re spending all your weekdays now working from home doesn’t mean you can’t still look sharp! Of course, as any guy knows, the trick is to look good while still feeling comfortable. Your home office probably doesn’t have the same suit-and-tie requirements that your old office did, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still look put-together every day. In fact, some studies have even shown that changing out of your pajamas and putting on a more dapper outfit can have positive psychological effects that might even boost your motivations and improve your work product. For men who want to look great but feel comfy while working from home, here are some of the top clothing tips to remember.
Do you live in an area with totally unpredictable weather patterns that seem to change every fifteen minutes? If so, dressing in layers is key, especially if you like to spend part of your workday working from your balcony, patio or backyard. If the temperatures are cool in the morning but get hot by midday, for instance, a light T-shirt topped with a suave jacket could be the answer. Check out these key pieces perfect for layering:
Just about everyone at this point has had the experience of needing to hop on a video call for work in the middle of the day, and when this happens, looking professional is essential. However, your bottom half may not matter as much since it won’t be on camera! That means that even if you’re still rocking your sweatpants, you’ll want to pull on a classy dress shirt. The trick here is choosing soft, comfy materials like cotton or polyester blends, so you won’t get that stiff, starchy, scratchy feeling that all too often comes with high-end professional shirts.
You might think that having plain versus pouch underwear might not make a big difference to your comfort levels at home, but a simple trial of comfier underwear could prove you wrong. Comfortable undergarments like boxers made from stretchy materials, for instance, can actually have a big impact on your overall level of comfort. This makes sense since it’s the most basic layer of your outfit! To be cozy overall, start at the core level with a solid pair of underpants.
On days where there are no work calls to worry about, tailored hoodies could be the way to go. Hoodies are casual enough to wear while working from the couch from 9:00 to 5:00, but if you choose one made with nice materials and get it tailored, it could look snazzier on you than you realize!
Although it’s totally fine to go barefoot all day while at home, if you get chilly indoors or live in a colder climate, part of completing your outfit and staying cozy is keeping your feet warm, too. There are plenty of options for slip-on shoes that look great but feel comfortable, too – just try a pair of leather boat-style shoes that are fleece-lined on the inside, for instance.
Maybe your commute now involves moving from the bed to the couch and your pet dog is essentially your coworker, but just because you’re working from home all day doesn’t mean you have to start dressing poorly. With the right outfit planning, it’s totally possible to dress for success while still feeling comfortable. For any men interested in keeping up dapper appearances without compromising on comfort, these five clothing tips are key.
Improving all areas of your physical health is incredibly important. From ensuring you’re consuming enough antioxidants and vitamins to help with your heart, brain and all your other major organs. You should consider certain therapies that can be offered at certain clinics, such as glutathione iv therapy. IV therapies are a great way to get nutrients into your body. Although a healthy lifestyle must work in conjunction with this.
When you want to eat healthy and adhere to a proper diet, you do not always know where to start. One reason is that the terms “healthy food” or “proper nutrition” have different meanings: one thinks it means not eating junk food, while the other thinks it means being vegan or eating only organic food.
Anyone who reads the health sections is often surprised to find that food that is considered unhealthy has suddenly become healthy following the publication of one study or another. In addition, there are several healthy dietary approaches, whose recommendations are not always compatible with each other. For example: low-carbohydrate diets that have been shown to be effective in weight loss and improving cardiovascular risk factors, compared to diets based on complex carbohydrates that have been shown to be similarly effective. So are carbs healthy or unhealthy? Coffee – to drink or not to drink? Yes, in moderation of course. Coffee is good for the brain and also for your bowels, but do not over consume.
There seems to be no single truth about proper nutrition, and as it has become clear in recent years different people are suitable for different diets. Proper and healthy nutrition consists of a set of several factors, each of which has its own unique contribution. It is impossible to change our diet overnight, changing eating habits should be slow but consistent. Each time it is worth deciding on a new change that you want to adopt and persevere with. Once the habit has become a part of life, you can move on to the next habit, and so you will continue to improve your diet until you feel that you have reached your healthy diet. Healthy eating is a very big and abstract concept, here are some ideas for turning the concept into small and practical steps. One per month in the new year.
1. Cook whole grains
Whole wheat pasta, whole rice, wild rice, whole couscous, whole bulgur, quinoa, buckwheat, millet – you should try them in different recipes and those who like to adopt instead of regular cereals.
2. Eat wholemeal bread
Whole wheat bread, rye bread, whole grain bread – plain bread or light bread. It is important to read the small print on the packaging and make sure the bread is made from 100% wholemeal flours.
3. Bake with wholemeal flour
You can choose between two options: The first is to pre-select recipes for breads, cakes, and cookies made from whole wheat flour. The second is the gradual approach, whereby you start by replacing 20 percent of the flour with wholemeal flour, and after practicing and loving move on.
