We all want to live a long, happy, healthy and wealthy life. Unfortunately, we can also quite often make life choices which are not conducive to that. We can take our bodies, minds and bank balances for granted. We can make poor choices in our diet, our lifestyle and our investments. We can be rash and reckless, failing to account for the ways in which the decisions that we make today can have a rippling effect that reaches way into the future.
When we’re young especially, we can take our bodies for granted, stuffing them with junk food and focusing only on the areas of exercise that will lead to an aesthetically pleasing body rather than sculpting a healthy one. If you want a body and mind that are healthy and conducive to the kind of informed yet intuitive decision making that leads to good financial health, here are some things you’ll need to do in 2019 and beyond…Read more

There is a whole host of different claims that are made every year – from slips and trips, to claims for industrial deafness and repetitive strain injury, to food poisoning and medical negligence… the list really is limitless. In this post, we will take a look at three important things you may not know about compensation claims. No matter what type of injury you have sustained, these three points apply to all…
There is a time limit on all claims
First and foremost, a lot of people do not realise there is a time limit on all personal injury cases. This limit is usually three years, meaning you have three years from the date of the accident for court proceedings to be issued. There are some exceptions, namely in regards to injuries that develop over time, such as industrial deafness. In these instances you will usually have three years from the date of your diagnosis. The situation is also different if you were a child when you were injured. If this was the case, your parents would be able to claim compensation for you. If they failed to do this, you have the opportunity to do so, with the three-year limit starting from your 18th birthday.
You won’t be able to make a successful claim if you do not visit a medical professional
A lot of people bypass a trip to the doctor when they suffer a minor injury. Yet, if you do this, it is highly unlikely that you will receive any compensation at all. In fact, you will struggle to find a personal injury lawyer willing to take on your case. You need to be professionally diagnosed with your injury so that there is proof of it.
You are not only compensated for your suffering, but you will receive special damages as well
Last but not least, did you know that you are not only compensated for your injuries but also any out of pocket expenses you incur as a result of the injury? These are known as special damages. Examples include childcare costs, medication fees, travel expenses, loss of income, accommodation costs and such like. If the expense has occurred because of the injury, you can claim for it. Nonetheless, make sure you keep your receipts and any other type of proof, as you will need it.
As you can see, there is a lot that comes together when making a personal injury case. If you are thinking about doing so, it is important to work with a top quality lawyer who can assist you. They will be able to ensure you know everything you need to know about making a claim.
You have the goals, you have the motivation, you have the workout you need to accomplish it all. When that’s the case, nothing can halt your momentum like a training injury. Yet, if you’re not ensuring the proper preparation and recovery when it comes to your exercise, it may happen more often than you would like. Let’s look at how you manage risk and recovery with your workout.
Make sure you warm up (and cool down)
When you don’t have a lot of time, you might want to skip the warm-up exercises, but the more explosive or dynamic your movements, the greater a risk this is to you. Learning a comprehensive warm-up exercise can help ensure that your body is limber and mobile so that sudden exercise doesn’t put you at greater risk of injury. Cool down (or warm down) exercises are just as important in helping your muscles ease back into a condition where they can recover more easily so that you’re not all tense and knotted.
Give your body the fuel it needs
What you eat before a workout determines not only the results you can expect to see from it but how well you can recover from it, too. Your body uses carbs for fuel, protein to repair muscle damaged by exercise, and the timing of the meal is just as important. 2-3 hours before workout is optimal.
Know the risks associated with the workout
Though it can be a disconcerting experience, it’s worth looking up the injuries and conditions most commonly associated with your chosen workout method or sport. For example, in running and athletics, foot and leg injuries, athletes foot, plantar fasciitis are common concerns, so having ready access to podiatry services can help you ensure a smoother, swifter recovery. Make sure you have access to the relevant care that can quickly give you the help you need in the event one of those risks rears its ugly head.
Do it the right way
Knowing the risks, you may also learn better ways to manage them. With athletics and aerobics, especially running, having the right running shoes is essential to ensure your feet are well-supported and protected. In strength training, perfecting your lifting form can help you avoid injuries as you deal with heavier weights.
Give yourself time to recover
If you do feel extremely sore or believe you are injured, you shouldn’t immediately get back to hitting the gym. Your body needs time to recover. However, this doesn’t mean you should give it nothing but bed rest. Too much bed rest can actually hinder your recovery and increase your chances of developing long-term chronic pain. Work with your doctor to see the right range of activity you should incorporate in your recovery to speed it along.
The most important thing of all is to do your research regarding the specific exercise you plan on taking on. Know the risks, how to best treat injuries if they do happen, and the correct form or preventative equipment you can use to make the risk of injury all the smaller.
