Recently, cases of COVID-19 have been described as a pandemic because the whole world is affected. Very few people will escape it and a lot of people died and will die. Naturally, you will want to ensure that your loved ones are as safe as possible. 

What will you do? It is far more cost-effective to be prepared beforehand than during any pandemic. And since it is back to school and the rainy season is approaching, your kids might need a lot of weapons to fight against diseases particularly the COVID-19. 

Here are some specific ways for healthy decisions:

1. Drink enough water -Try to drink 3-4 quarts of purified (preferably alkaline) water each day. Do it regardless of thirst. Drink more if sweating. Get it all done before supper so you don't have to race to the bathroom all night.

2. Sun -The sun is not the enemy, it is the energy that underlies all life. It has a critical impact on mood, immunity, general health, and vitality. Try to expose as much of the skin as possible to the sun every day for at least 30 minutes or so. In sunlight the skin synthesizes the most important vitamin/hormone in the body, vitamin D. Do not get burned since that can cause genetic damage to the skin. Use natural sunscreens, shade, and clothing to prevent overexposure. Use sun-mimicking, full-spectrum lighting in the home.

3. Eat more plants. 

Meals that are good for you, good for the planet… good for the kids and for everybody!

It's easier for moms like me to plan meals for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner with Purple Carrot.  We all know that kids are a picky eater. So I believe that it can help me. When you order a meal at Purple Carrot, you can customize it! Mix and match your meals to get a meal kit you’ll love. Choose from Quick & Easy, High-Protein, Gluten-Free, or Chef's Choice dinners.

Refried Butternut Tacos

with Grape Salsa & Cilantro Cabbage Slaw


Tamarind Cauliflower

with Gingered Fried Rice & Cashews


When you eat a plant-based diet good things happen:
  • Decreased chance of high blood pressure
  • Reduced risk of heart disease
  • Lower risk of diabetes


Purple Carrot makes it easy to cook new and inspiring vegan meals by bringing plant-based eating into the mainstream, ultimately improving health, the environment, and animal welfare.



4. Probiotics - Supplement the diet with probiotic cultures and eat foods such as yogurt (non-sugared) and other cultured and fermented products. These friendly bacteria fight pathogens, boost immunity, and synthesize vitamins, enzymes, and other nutritional factors.


5. Vitamins and minerals - Take full spectrum supplements every day. Modern factory farming and food processing diminish these nutrients in the food supply. The stresses of modern life also increase our needs. Larger doses than contained in the average diet have been proven to prevent and reverse a number of diseases.

6. Sleep - Getting at least seven to eight hours of sleep or closed eye rest each day is essential. If sleeplessness is a problem, get more physically active during the day. If unable to sustain sleep at night, be sure to take a nap during the day.

7. Radiation - Avoid it as much as possible. All radiation is harmful and increasing.

Take note of some of these healthy decisions to live longer. I hope I have helped you during these trying times. We are all in this together. Fighting!

How COVID-19 impacted the real estate market in the UK?

September 25, 2020 0 Comments
This COVID-19 pandemic really affects the whole world. It has rapidly spread and truly a global crisis as no country is spared. A lot of businesses have been impacted. Some responded to reducing hours of work, manpower, or closing down temporarily. Even the real estate industry is affected by this pandemic.

What is Real Estate?
When people ask "what is real estate investing" it normally has to do with you finding a good property below market value that will be generating short or long-term income. Whether it is residual income or profits from buying wholesale and selling retail. It all depends on what you have acquired the property for. Also depending on if you decide to sell or keep as a rental property, will determine what is known as return on investment. Basically, it comes down to how much money you spent versus how much money you got back in returns.
When we say real estate it always comes with a mortgage.

According to Money Advice Services in the UK,
"A mortgage is a loan taken out to buy property or land. Most run for 25 years but the term can be shorter or longer. The loan is 'secured' against the value of your home until it's paid off. If you can't keep up your repayments the lender can repossess (take back) your home and sell it so they get their money back." 
Here's Mortgage Calculator UK will help you calculate the interest rates of your loan. 


In addition to that, across the United Kingdom, around 65 thousand to 70 thousand mortgages are approved each month. This is from a low of around 30 thousand after the global financial crisis of 2008 to 2009. Prior to the recession, the monthly rate was closer to 80 thousand to 130 thousand loans completed per month. In the first quarter, this amounted to £63.3 billion in new loan originations.

The UK Government published a guide on home moving during the coronavirus outbreak.

The process of searching for and moving into a new home is different because property agents, conveyancers, and other professionals have modified how they work to reduce the risk from COVID-19. These changes could include doing more online, such as offering virtual viewings; vacating your current property during viewings; and ensuring your property is thoroughly cleaned before someone else moves in.

The Bank of England cut its interest rate to 0.1% on March 19, 2020. In spite of the BoE easing policy, many banks have tightened lending standards.

During lockdowns far fewer homes were sold across the UK, leading to record sales from pent-up demand after the lockdown ended.

According to The Guardian, UK recession expected to continue until spring amid Covid-19 surge. City says economic fightback is running out of steam as new restrictions are announced.

As a Covid-19 second wave spreads and the government launches fresh measures to restrict business and social life, City economists warned that the fightback from the deepest recession in history begun this summer was running out of steam.

Dashing hopes that the Covid recession could be among the shortest downturns in history, analysts from Bank of America said growth in gross domestic product (GDP) would probably stall in the fourth quarter and the first three months of 2021.

Robert Wood, the chief UK economist at the bank, said: “We struggle to see how the economy can grow in the fourth quarter with escalating lockdown measures, fading stimulus and Brexit risks.”

At the end of the day, everyone should stay at home, be safe and be strong. May this pandemic ends very soon. Let's all pray and have faith.

Perfect Apartment in Chicago: finding the right place to settle down

August 19, 2020 0 Comments

When you decide to settle down, retire, or just live with your family, one thing that you must consider is finding the right place that will give you peace and happy life. Just what I also want for my family, I would also love to live in a place that I will enjoy every moment.

You may consider living in Chicago. It is one of the major business centers in the Midwest. Famous for hospitality, Chicago is a city that has heart and soul, along with great food and music. Like most large cities, Chicago is the sum total of its communities that form their neighborhoods. 

In Chicago, locations with good public transportation, near your workplace, near schools, hospitals, churches, restaurants, and shopping malls can be a good place to consider.

 

When you start your journey of locating an apartment to rent because not all can buy their own house, it's a good idea to learn about the different neighborhoods to choose the one that works best for you. It will also depend on your lifestyle.

For convenience and easy to find a perfect apartment in Chicago, try an online apartment search like Zumper

Zumper is used by millions of renters to find houses, rooms, condos, or apartments for rent.  Here are the benefits of using Zumper:

Apply online
Submit digital rental applications and credit reports with Zumper's screening service, powered by TransUnion™.

Quality listings
Our inventory is updated in real-time, so you'll always see new rentals on Zumper first.

Realtime alerts
Filter by location, price range, bedroom count, pet-friendly, or amenity and set an alert to get notifications when a new listing is posted.


If you work for a company that is located in the Loop of Chicago and want to live close to this area, take a look at the South Loop. Beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the presence of several tourist attractions make apartments in this area very desirable.

If you would rather not drive, this area has good public transportation, you have your choice of five trains and several bus lines that service the Loop. There is a lot of competition for apartment rentals because of the presence of two art colleges. In the South Loop, the average studio apartment rental range from $750-$1000, rental fees for a one-bedroom apartment are $1100 to $1900 and you will find mid-sized two-bedroom apartment rents for $1500 to $4000.

Consider your lifestyle as well; what type of environment do you prefer? Chicago has waterfront communities; quiet tree-lined streets and fast-paced venues. You can live in a high-rise apartment complex or a walk-up apartment building.

In the end, it's all your choice of living. Be happy and enjoy life.

Calculating your Savings!

July 12, 2020 0 Comments
Most of the time, the hardest thing to do is to start simply about saving money. A lot of people struggle to start when to save lots of money for future goals such as vacation, emergency funds, or retirement. As for this pandemic issue, people should realize that saving money is really important so that when we face again this kind of problem, we are all ready and good to go. No need to ask for government assistance. 

I would like to share with you some ways to save money and how to calculate it.

1. Record your expenses. Keep track of all your expenses. List down your monthly bills so that you'll know how much and where your money goes. Decide which one to let go of.

2. Create a budget. Once you've got a plan of all your expenses, you'll be able to create your budget for the month and it should be served to your income. Your income must be divided into expenses, savings, and other emergency matters.

3. Plan on Saving Money. Now that you've created a budget, be determined to put away 15-20% of your income. If your expenses are too high that you can't save money, simply pick all the non-essentials. Lessen the times you spend money eating out and buying branded stuff. 

4. Choose something to save for and decide your priorities. One of the simplest ways to save lots of money is to set a goal. Maybe you want to go to Korea someday for a one week vacation or planning to buy a car, then find out how long it'd take you to save for it. If you would like help determining a timeframe, there's this site that will help you calculate your savings, it's called Pigly

This calculator makes it easy to figure out how much interest an investor will earn from a one-time deposit, a series of regular deposits, or both. This calculator does not account for inflation or income taxes. If you would like to factor those into your calculation please use this calculator.




5. Watch your savings grow.  Always check your progress each month, so that you'll be able to fix issues quickly. 

Saving money can be easier than you think. Start small and make short-term goals. And be productive and think of more ways to earn money so that you can save lots of it. Happy saving everyone!
