Check Off These Tasks Before It's Too Late*

Life moves at a rapid pace, especially as you age. You may look back one day and wonder where the time has gone. With that sentiment in mind, you must tick off some essential items on your life’s to-do list before another moment passes.

Plan Your Funeral

Planning for the final stages of life can be very difficult, and it should not have to be that way. If you have difficulty addressing the inevitability of it all, try reframing the narrative. Choose to say that you are planning for your final journey, or that you intend to make your passing as easy as possible for those you love. However you approach the conversation, what is important is that you have one.

One of the best ways to tackle the concept of death is to deal with it head-on by investing in prepaid funeral plans. By doing so you decide what you want your final send-off to look like. You can choose whether you wish to be buried or cremated, what type of officiant you want at your service, and the list goes on. 

As you plan your funeral, make a note of your favourite flower, or a specific item of clothing you wish to be buried in, and include special songs that have touched your heart over the years. This is a time to plan your service and make it the way you want. It will help put you at ease when everything is set and help the people who love you once you are gone.

Do What You Have Always Wanted To Do

Go ahead and make other plans - create a bucket list and begin checking items off. Live your life to the fullest and have fun doing it.

Make A Will

By now, you should know that you need a will. You may have heard of the latest celebrity gossip about that famous singer who left this world with millions not left to anyone. And then the news detailed the infighting and the legal wrangling for all to see.

Do not let that happen to you. Schedule an appointment with a solicitor to create a new will or update an old one. Throughout life, there will be marriages, births, and deaths. Each of these events is a reason for maintaining your will. It will be easier for everyone involved and reduce headaches by having your affairs in order before they need to be.

Create a detailed list of items you wish to bequeath to others. If reasonable, affix a label to the underside or back of the item with the intended recipient’s name. This way, there will not be any confusion or unnecessary running around trying to find the items in question when it is time to pass them on. Taking photos and a video will also be helpful for the executor of your will.

Travelling Tips For People With Anxiety

Travelling can be an exciting and enriching experience, but it can also trigger feelings of anxiety in some individuals. The thought of navigating new environments, dealing with unexpected events, and facing different cultural norms can be overwhelming, especially for those with anxiety. However, with proper planning and preparation, you can reduce stress and enjoy your trip to the fullest. Here are some practical tips for managing anxiety while travelling:

Plan ahead
Preparation is key when it comes to reducing anxiety while travelling. Plan your itinerary, research your destination, and make sure you have everything you need for a smooth trip. Having a clear plan and knowing what to expect can help you feel more in control and less overwhelmed.

Pack essentials
Make sure you bring items that will help you feel comfortable and secure, such as your medication, a favorite blanket, or a comfort toy. Additionally, pack earplugs and an eye mask to help you sleep on long flights or in unfamiliar surroundings.

Stay connected
Stay connected with friends and family back home, and ensure you have a way to communicate in an emergency. This can provide you with a sense of comfort and security, especially if you are travelling to a new place.

Stay active
Regular exercise and physical activity can help reduce anxiety and improve mood. Make time for walks, yoga, or other physical activities while on the trip.

Manage your exposure to stress
Avoid exposing yourself to situations that you know will trigger your anxiety. For example, if you have a fear of flying, try to book a direct flight and choose an aisle seat to minimize your exposure to turbulence.

Take breaks
Travelling can be tiring, especially if you are dealing with anxiety. Make sure to take regular breaks and give yourself time to relax and recharge.

Seek support
If your anxiety is severe, it may be helpful to seek support from a mental health professional before your trip. They can provide you with strategies to manage anxiety while travelling and offer support throughout your trip.

In conclusion, travelling with anxiety can be a challenge, but proper planning and preparation can reduce stress and enjoy your trip. Remember to take care of yourself, stay connected with loved ones, and seek support when needed. With these tips, you can travel with confidence and make memories that will last a lifetime.
