The advantages of a Bluetooth smart scale is that it comes with many important features. Through an app you download on your phone, track how much weight you’ve lost, and how your health and wellness goals are going. If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, you know there are successes alongside failures. Not every day is a winner and if you’re not monitoring your food, it can be tremendously easy to overeat or eat the wrong foods. Nevertheless, even if you don’t have a specific numbered goal, a scale is a necessity to keep you on the right track.

 

Featuring bio-electrical impedance analysis technology, your Bluetooth scale is tracking up to twelve metrics all at the same time. Unlike what we used to think decades ago, being healthy is not all about getting your weight down. It’s about so much more. For this reason, in addition to weight, a smart scale works to measure your BMI, fat percentage, obesity percentage, muscle percentage, visceral fat percentage, protein, bone mass, BMR, water percentage, LBM, and body age.

 

These readings serve a huge benefit in analyzing how your overall health is coming along. Now, it’s worth keeping in mind these readings are primarily estimates – which is all you’re going to get from smart technologies like smart watches, Fitbits, and similar products.  They all provide, to varying degrees of accuracy, estimates. Notwithstanding, over time, your Bluetooth smart scale remains a way to analyze overall health and ensure you’re still on track with everything. It’s about more than weighing yourself.

 

When you’re just getting one number on your scale, it’s one number to fixate on. It doesn’t take into account the muscle you’re building, either. Muscle weighs more than fat and anyone exercising is going to build muscle. That’s going to stabilize or possibly increase weight, while simultaneously reducing their fat content.

 

In our view, the traditional single-number scale doesn’t work and is an oversimplified way of looking at health. Do your health a favor and invest in a Bluetooth scale from Living.ca! It’s the perfect companion to your weight loss journey and when paired with your app, you’ll find a range of statistics to help you make the call on whether you need to change what you’re doing.

Use a High-Tech Mirror to Reduce Blind Spot Collisions and Protect Yourself

Blind-spot collisions are common, especially driving in the city where you’re surrounded by pedestrians, cyclists, parked cars, and all sorts of activity going on. Almost every day now in Toronto, someone is struck and sometimes with fatal consequences by drivers who are not checking the roads prior to making a turn, who aren’t paying attention in general, or who can’t see their blind spots. A simple mirror strategically placed outside your vehicle however can change all that.

 

As a driver, you have two mirrors outside the vehicle – one to the left side and one on the passenger’s side. We recommend placing a third and fourth mirror, each underneath the indicated mirrors you already have. The third and fourth mirrors are small, 360-degree rotatable mirrors manufactured with the specific purpose of giving a driver view of their blind spot on both sides. They’re very easily adjusted and can help a driver figure their way in and out of tight situations.

 

From our perspective, the more visibility, the better. A mirror like this is multi-purpose. Adjust the angle as you see fit and if you’re nervous about certain areas around your vehicle, install additionals. Using a mirror like this, you can forecast your surroundings any time passing or changing lanes and ensure you remain a safe driver at every opportunity. For cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, and even RVs, these are perfect and should be on every vehicle. Today, when a driver changes lanes, they check their mirrors and do a shoulder check – at least, you’re supposed to. Some get lazy and simply check their mirrors. That’s not acceptable.

 

In Canada, it’s estimated there are roughly 84,000 blind spot related accidents every year. Automobiles manufactured today have collision-avoidance systems and blind-spot alerts however these are not included in every vehicle. In fact, in some, you only receive these as additions on upgraded vehicles. If you don’t have one of these systems in your car, we strongly recommend getting set up with a mirror that’s going to give you the same oversight. See everything surrounding your vehicle and be confident, after you do your usual checks, you’re transitioning safely into another position on the road.

 

No one wants to be the vehicle that hits another vehicle, collides with a pedestrian, cyclist, or curb. As a driver, always check prior to making any modification to your current position on the road. Visit Living.ca to see our 360-degree rotatable car mirror. It’ll help keep your vehicle safe getting in and out of parking spaces, as well as in checking your blind spots.

 

The Ultimate Guide to Using an Essential Oil Diffuser with Tips and Tricks

Natural, holistic remedies to a variety of health challenges could be a click away for you with aromatherapy essential oil diffusers.

 

Aromatherapy has been for centuries, used by cultures all over the world. What are known as ‘essential oils’ are actually compounds extracted from plant materials? They are used for everything from treating physical illness to mental illness and relaxation.

Essential oils should not be ingested but rather, applied topically or taken in through inhalation. Using an essential oil diffuser, all you need to do is apply 3-5 drops to 100 milliliters of water in a diffuser. Alternatively, you may also use 2 drops per teaspoon in a carrier oil such as almond oil. The following are some of the most popular essential oils.

 

  • Lavender: This is one of the best known essential oils and is used for relaxation, help with sleep and to reduce anxiety.
  • Tea Tree: This is commonly used topically to treat rashes, insect bites, nail fungus, and head lice.
  • Frankincense: Believers suggest frankincense to relieve chronic stress, anxiety, skin diseases, and coughs and colds.
  • Peppermint: As a mild stimulant, peppermint oil induces alertness and is used to combat a range of things, including headaches, nausea, coughs, fatigue, and travel sickness.
  • Orange: Uplifting and energizing, orange as an essential oil is anti-inflammatory and helps to relax muscle spasms.

 

Now, when you buy an essential oil diffuser from Living.ca, there are a lot of bullet points you’ll want to know. An essential oil diffuser will generally last up to 10 hours and covers spaces up to 200 square feet in size.

If you don’t want to use any of the aforementioned oils in your diffuser, you certainly don’t have to. After you have your aromatherapy diffuser, you can use any number of different oils in it. It doesn’t hurt to look into what oils might be best for you. For example, if you want to treat something like dry skin, specific essential oils you will want to use include frankincense, rose, helichrysum, lavender, and geranium. It’s all what you want to use it to treat and what the true purpose of your essential oil diffuser is.

Halloween Party Games you may want to Give a Try for your Adults-Only Affair

As adults, maybe your love of Halloween has faded a little bit. After all, we don’t get the candy we used to in our trick-or-treating years and sometimes, seeing the fun others are having on the spookiest of days, it can be a little sad. For adults, the best Halloween fun is always had with friends, family, and those we don’t know in the shadows of a Halloween party.

 

A great way to get to know others and share in the Halloween experience is to engage in some party games. Dress up in your best costume, take on a character for the night, and enjoy it with friends on a party game. Ranging from sexy to scary, there’s no shortage of possible games you could give a try if you’re attending an adults-only affair.

 

Horror Movie Trivia

 

Using classic horror movies as a basis for trivia, this can be a great chance to show off your knowledge. If you and your friends have a favourite scary TV show – a la American Horror Story, Stranger Things, or Castle Rock – this could be another source to use for trivia. Browse online for free trivia questions or come up with your own based around your favourite Halloween-friendly media.

 

Halloween Charades

 

Charades is a game that can be easily modified for the occasion and the audience. Consider finding a Halloween-friendly charades game or DIY your own. If you’re in the company of adults only, you can make your charades game as suggestive and obscene as you like.

 

Bobbing for Apples in Wine

 

Sort of like an adults-updated apple bobbing game, instead of using water, consider using an alcoholic beverage. Though something like a red wine could leave everyone looking like a vampire for the night, this is one suggestion that could be fun for some crowds. If you don’t want to use red wine though, look into other beverages that could make sense.

 

Death-Dodging ‘Bucket of Doom’

 

The Bucket of Doom Halloween party game presents different scenarios to players, encouraging them to think of how they’d escape. If you don’t want to seek out the Bucket of Doom game itself, you can always create your own with a mix of different scenarios. For example, it could be a scenario as simple as being left behind on Mars or something as obscene as being shrunk down and trapped inside an elephant’s butt. It’s all up to you how you want to build the game.

 

If you’re not already attending a Halloween party, consider throwing your own! At Living.ca, you’ll find the best deals, discounts, and exclusives on Halloween party supplies, decorations, costumes, and more. Shop Living.ca today and begin planning your next amazing Hall
