5 Tips to Consider When Buying an Engagement Ring for Her

Having a partner who will soon will be yours forever feels wonderful. An engagement ring is the ultimate romantic symbol for love and commitment, but there are quite a number of things to put under consideration before you choose an engagement ring.

This is because there are so many types of engagement rings available, and it is up to you to make the perfect choice on what to take home to your soon-to-be lover of your life.

The following is a list of the five ultimate and most important things to consider while buying an engagement ring for your significant other.

1. Her Lifestyle

This is an engagement ring, and it will be on her hand for most of her time. This being the case, it will be a part of her from the day she gets it onward, and it must fully sync with her lifestyle. Different types of engagement rings befit different lifestyles; therefore, before you pay for that engagement ring, you need to first of all, consider whether it will fit into her lifestyle.

You do not want to make her feel punished by wearing something that feels awkward in her day-to-day life. Think about how she uses her hands. For example, if she has physical contact with people a lot of the time, like a teacher or a doctor, you may consider buying her a ring without elevated diamonds. If you want an heirloom of your family member or a dear one who has passed away to be given to her, get her a memorial diamond from Swiss company LONITÉ.

Finally, if her working environment entails getting her hands dirty, then a simple engagement ring without impressions or embossments is a perfect choice for you to make.

2. Her Personal Style

Rings, just like any other wearable, need to compliment someone’s style. You need to consider what she likes wearing, the patterns of her clothes, and her favorite colors. This is helpful as it will help you find the perfect fit for her, and you will not regret it as she will definitely like it.

3. Your Budget

This is a very important aspect worth considering as there are so many types of engagement rings out there in all different price ranges. You should therefore, be in a position to get the best of a good ring whose price range is within your budget.

As straight-forward as it may sound, most people tend to please their other halves by straining their budget just to get the most expensive engagement ring. Remember, expensive is not always good; you need to be in a position to research very well on all the ring styles available and the cheap methods through which you can buy them. This way, you will get the best product at a relatively low cost without straining your budget.

4. Protection of the Commodity

A wedding ring is a precious small gadget that is prone to theft, misplacement, or even accidental drops. It would be terrible to buy an expensive diamond ring and within just a week, you are told that it was stolen, and you cannot do anything about it.

It is good to buy an engagement ring from a trusted and reputable jeweler that offers warranty and wraps the cost of insurance into your budget. This way, you will be safe in case of theft or damage. Insurance or a warranty will ensure that you get another one, or that it will be repaired without paying anything, respectively.

5. Her Finger Size

Like wedding rings, engagement rings differ in sizes. Some rings have a maximum or minimum diameter. Before you decide on a certain ring, however beautiful it may be, you should first consider her finger size.

To actuate this, it is good to have a prior estimation of the diameter of her finger. This will ensure that you do not get embarrassed during the engagement day by giving her an oversized ring whose cost is way beyond the roof.

This is something that will be worn for a long time and signifies an important part of your life. As such, it is very important to be very careful while purchasing an engagement ring. You may even consider taking a friend with you who has a prior experience so that he or she can help you out in choosing the best ring that your significant other will like.

This Is What Happens When You Move Out Of the Comfort Zone

This Is What Happens When You Move Out Of the Comfort Zone

The pursuit of worthwhile goals is a part of what makes life enjoyable. Being able to set a goal, then see yourself progress towards achieving that goal is an amazing feeling.

But do you know the biggest obstacle for most people trying to achieve their goals, the silent dream killer that stops people before they ever even get started? That obstacle is the comfort zone, and getting stuck there is bound to derail any efforts you make towards achieving the goals you’ve set for yourself.

If you want to achieve those goals, you’ll have to break free from your comfort zone. Let’s take a look at how your life will change once you build up the courage to leave your comfort zone.

What Is the Comfort Zone?

The comfort zone is defined as “a behavioural state within which a person operates in an anxiety-neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviours to deliver a steady level of performance.”

What stands out to me the most about that definition is the last part: “using a limited set of behaviours to deliver a steady level of performance.” How many successful people do you know who deliver a steady level of performance?

The goal in life is to continually challenge yourself, and continually improve yourself. And in order to do that, you have move out of your comfort zone. But once you do, your life will start to change in ways you could never have imagined. I know because it’s happening right now in my own life.

Here’s what I’ve learned.

1. You will be scared

Leaving your comfort zone isn’t easy. In fact, in can be downright terrifying at times, and that’s okay. It’s perfectly normal to feel a little trepidation when you’re embarking on a journey that forces you to try new things.

So don’t freak out or get overwhelmed when you feel yourself getting a little scared. It’s perfectly normal and all part of the process. What’s important is that you don’t let that fear hold you back. You must continue to take action in the face of fear.

That’s what separates winners from losers.

2. You will fail

Stepping out of your comfort zone means you’re moving into uncharted territory. You’re trying things that you’ve never tried before, and learning things you’ve never learned before.

That steep learning curve means you’re not going to get everything right the first time, and you will eventually fail when you move out of your comfort zone. But as long as the failures aren’t catastrophic, it can actually be a good thing to fail because …

3. You will learn

Failure is the best teacher. I’ve learned more from each one of my failures than I have from each one of my successes. When you fail small, and fail often, you rapidly increase the rate at which you learn new insights and skills. And that new knowledge, if applied correctly, will eventually lead to your success.

4. You will see yourself in a different way

Once you move out of your comfort zone, you immediately prove to yourself that you’re capable of achieving more than you thought was possible. And that will change the way you see yourself.

Moving forward, you’ll have more confidence in yourself whenever you step out of your comfort zone, and that increased confidence will make it more likely that you continue to step outside your comfort zone. And each time you do, you’ll prove to yourself again and again what you’re really capable of.

5. Your peers will see you in a different way

Whether we want to admit or not, people judge other people. And right now, people view you in a certain way, and they have a certain idea of what you’re capable of. That’s because they’ve become accustomed to seeing you operate in your comfort zone.

But once you move out of your comfort zone, you’ll prove to other people, as well, that you’re capable of much more than you’ve shown in the past.

The increased confidence other people place in you will bring about more opportunities than ever before.

6. Your comfort zone will expand

The good thing about the comfort zone is that it’s flexible and malleable. With each action you take outside of your comfort zone, it expands. And once you master that new skill or action, it eventually becomes part of your comfort zone.

This is great news for you because it means that you can constantly increase and improve upon the behaviors that you’re comfortable with. And the more tools and skills you have at your disposal, the easier it will be to achieve your goals.

7. You will increase your concentration and focus

When you’re living inside of your comfort zone, the bulk of your actions are habitual: automatic, subconscious, and requiring limited focus.

But once you move out of your comfort zone, you no longer rely on those habitual responses. You’re forced to concentrate and focus on the new action in a way you never do in your comfort zone.

8. You will develop new skills

Moving out of your comfort zone requires that you develop new skills. One of the many benefits you’ll experience is that you’ll be stepping away from the “limited set of behaviors” and start to develop your ability and expertise in new areas.

Living inside of your comfort zone only requires a limited skill set, and those skills won’t contribute much to your success. Once you can confidently step outside of your comfort zone and learn a new skill, there’s no limit to how much you can achieve.

9. You will achieve more than before

With everything that happens once you move out of your comfort zone, you’re naturally going to achieve more than ever before.

Your increased concentration and focus will help you develop new skills. Those new skills will change the way you see yourself, encouraging you to step even further out of your comfort zone.
