As we’re preparing for the New Year, we’re excited to present our free 2018 calendar to you!
What you can declutter easily
This year is almost over and many of my clients and friends are looking forward to 2018. Some are taking a few days off, spending time with the family and relaxing after a few busy weeks at work. Isn’t it amazing how we can be so focused and productive just to meet the weekly, monthly or even annual targets? Wouldn’t it be great to always be that driven?
Getting rid of unnecessary items in your home and office can give you that focus! Creating space, you see what really matters, what’s truly urgent and you can act accordingly, saving you time and energy. So what do we recommend you declutter in the final days of 2017? Here’s our list of 44 items you can easily let go:
Enjoy a stress-free pre-Christmas season
Yes, you’ve read that right! Christmas! It’s still October and I’m speaking about Christmas?! No, I haven’t lost the plot. I want you to enjoy the last 2 months of the year and not experience the mad rush like in previous years. So what am I proposing?
Get your home ready before you’ll get on that trip
Who doesn’t want to go on a long trip? The Japanese way of touring Europe within 7 days doesn’t appeal to me. I was brought up with summer holidays lasting between 3 weeks to 3 months. We loved the summers on the beach and I’d be game for a longer holiday again, right now! What about you? Have you thought of taking a sabbatical or a longer trip?
Before you can get on that plan, have your home prepared. Here’s our checklist for you:
How to quickly unpack your suitcases
Do you know this situation? You’ve spent a wonderful time while on holiday and don’t want to go back to your normal routine? And there’s the massive suitcase that you need to unpack? For me, I prefer unpacking to packing the suitcase. All the little memories are coming back… and so is the laundry. We have collected our top 5 tips for the easiest unpacking:
How to have a great holiday with your children
Many families are taking their children on a holiday this summer. Are you one of them? For many, how to keep their children going in a new environment is the biggest question. There are so many options. Here are our top 10 suggestions to having a great holiday with your children:
How will you spend this summer?
This week, temperatures have gone up to 40 C/104 F. For most places, that’s really hot. Not for us in this region. Summer is not even here yet! But has that stopped you from thinking what to do this summer? With Ramadan being early, we’ll have almost 4 months of summer! Why not start thinking about your summer plans this weekend?
How to find the right care for your pet
Spring break is almost here and many families will be using the next 2 weeks to spontaneously go away for a few days. How great would it be to spend a long weekend on the beach, playing with the kids in the pool or finally reading that book? While hotels have plenty of specials for you and your children, your furry family members will have to stay at home. But who will look after your pets?
I love this region and the sunny weather we experience 350 days per year. It seems though like climate change is also leaving its marks here. My visitors are arriving tomorrow, looking for warm sunshine which has been hiding a bit recently. Now the question is what to do when it’s not lounging at the beach weather?
Here are my top 7 tips to entertain your guests when the weather isn’t that inviting:
How to prepare for take off
When was the last time you got on a plane and flew away? Having only 2 neighbouring countries, chances are high that you took a flight just recently. Or are you like me and have your summer holiday still ahead of you? Whether you’re flying away for work or leisure, air travel including departures can be a pain. That doesn’t need to be! When working for one of the world’s best airlines, I’ve learnt a lot of making my departures as comfortable and hassle-free as possible!
Today, I want to share my top 5 tips for a smooth departure with you:
