How Laundrettes Are Making Life Easier!

How Laundrettes Are Making Life Easier!

Doing your laundry can be an absolute mission these days. Not only do you have to push bundles and bundles of dirty clothes through the washing machine, you then have to wait for them to dry (unless you are lucky enough to have a tumble dryer), and once dried the majority of items will need to be ironed. This process can take up so much time leaving you feeling unproductive and slightly exhausted, and that’s just assuming you even have a fully functional washing machine.

Washing machines and tumble dryers maybe one of the quickest solutions to sorting your laundry at home, but how many times have people had to get them fixed from them constantly breaking down? Granted this maybe down to the how certain individuals are using them, for example overloading a wash cycle just to cut down the time, putting items through with loose fastenings, and many other factors.

Once the washing machine is broken you then have to call someone out to have a look at it, which of course will involve a charge for their services. Then once they have figured out the problem, a decision will be made to whether they can fix it there and then. They might just need to purchase a new part, or they might have to take it away to dismantle it if the problem is quite severe.

Overall the maintenance side of things can work out really costly, so much so that sometimes its better if you just hand wash your items. However choosing to hand wash your dirty laundry can take up a lot of your time, and you can’t guarantee it will be it will be as effective as a machine wash when you need to get rid of stains and other marks.

Tumble dryers similarly to washing machines can be a great way to cut hours off your laundry time, and if your laundry is treated with care after the cycle there might not actually be a need to iron it at all. Again the problem here is that should your tumble dryer break down then it will cost a fortune to get it serviced. However a common problem people face when tumble drying laundry is that some clothes can shrink. To avoid this, the care label should always be checked beforehand, and the same goes for the washing process.

So what’s the best way to get laundry processed by the mass in the most time effective manner?

Well one of the best ways to do laundry is by doing it at a laundrette. The machines there are heavy duty industrialised machines that can cope with large laundry piles by the dozen on a daily basis. The laundry process can become pretty speedy, and in the meantime you can always pop down the local shop, or read a book whilst you’re waiting. Some people even consider the laundrette like a community where you can chat with the locals, make some friends and catch up over a brew and some biscuits. The only downside to a laundrette is the idea of transporting your dirty laundry from point A to point B. If you have a large load it’s impractical to carry it all by hand, but at the same time it’s a waste of money and a trip to wash a load that’s not quite big enough.

Having a car can be pretty useful in situations like this but not everyone is lucky enough to own one. Taking your laundry on public transport can be another option however it is strongly advised that you avoid rush hour like the plague, especially with a big bag of laundry as that could be chaotic.

There is one more option that can be extremely beneficial and that is to use a laundrette who will provide a collection and delivery service. Most modern laundrettes will offer this service and may even give you the option to have your laundry dry cleaned as well.

I currently live in the capital’s favourite seaside town Brighton, in which these services are trending as the population’s lifestyles are becoming busier. As London is only an hour away, most of the people who live in Brighton are commuters to the capital, meaning they have limited chances to get their laundry done. Some laundrettes in Brighton offer this flexible service which allows the collection and delivery of their laundry to fit around their lifestyles. This service alongside many others are helping life become that much easier on a daily basis moving forwards. No wonder it’s currently trending.

The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

Creating a vision for your life might seem like a frivolous, fantastical waste of time, but it’s not: creating a compelling vision of the life you want is actually one of the most effective strategies for achieving the life of your dreams. Perhaps the best way to look at the concept of a life vision is as a compass to help guide you to take the best actions and make the right choices that help propel you toward your best life.

your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have

    Why You Need a Vision

    Experts and life success stories support the idea that with a vision in mind, you are more likely to succeed far beyond what you could otherwise achieve without a clear vision. Think of crafting your life vision as mapping a path to your personal and professional dreams. Life satisfaction and personal happiness are within reach. The harsh reality is that if you don’t develop your own vision, you’ll allow other people and circumstances to direct the course of your life.

    How to Create Your Life Vision

    Don’t expect a clear and well-defined vision overnight—envisioning your life and determining the course you will follow requires time, and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective, and you also need to apply logic and planning for the practical application of your vision. Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, and aspirations. It will resonate with your values and ideals, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

    What Do You Want?

    The question sounds deceptively simple, but it’s often the most difficult to answer. Allowing yourself to explore your deepest desires can be very frightening. You may also not think you have the time to consider something as fanciful as what you want out of life, but it’s important to remind yourself that a life of fulfillment does not usually happen by chance, but by design.

    It’s helpful to ask some thought-provoking questions to help you discover the possibilities of what you want out of life. Consider every aspect of your life, personal and professional, tangible and intangible. Contemplate all the important areas, family and friends, career and success, health and quality of life, spiritual connection and personal growth, and don’t forget about fun and enjoyment.

    Some tips to guide you:

    • Remember to ask why you want certain things
    • Think about what you want, not on what you don’t want.
    • Give yourself permission to dream.
    • Be creative. Consider ideas that you never thought possible.
    • Focus on your wishes, not what others expect of you.

    Some questions to start your exploration:

    • What really matters to you in life? Not what should matter, what does matter.
    • What would you like to have more of in your life?
    • Set aside money for a moment; what do you want in your career?
    • What are your secret passions and dreams?
    • What would bring more joy and happiness into your life?
    • What do you want your relationships to be like?
    • What qualities would you like to develop?
    • What are your values? What issues do you care about?
    • What are your talents? What’s special about you?
    • What would you most like to accomplish?
    • What would legacy would you like to leave behind?

    It may be helpful to write your thoughts down in a journal or creative vision board if you’re the creative type. Add your own questions, and ask others what they want out of life. Relax and make this exercise fun. You may want to set your answers aside for a while and come back to them later to see if any have changed or if you have anything to add.

    What Would Your Best Life Look Like?

    Describe your ideal life in detail. Allow yourself to dream and imagine, and create a vivid picture. If you can’t visualize a picture, focus on how your best life would feel. If you find it difficult to envision your life 20 or 30 years from now, start with five years—even a few years into the future will give you a place to start. What you see may surprise you. Set aside preconceived notions. This is your chance to dream and fantasize.

    A few prompts to get you started:

    • What will you have accomplished already?
    • How will you feel about yourself?
    • What kind of people are in your life? How do you feel about them?
    • What does your ideal day look like?
    • Where are you? Where do you live? Think specifics, what city, state, or country, type of community, house or an apartment, style and atmosphere.
    • What would you be doing?
    • Are you with another person, a group of people, or are you by yourself?
    • How are you dressed?
    • What’s your state of mind? Happy or sad? Contented or frustrated?
    • What does your physical body look like? How do you feel about that?
    • Does your best life make you smile and make your heart sing? If it doesn’t, dig deeper, dream bigger.

    It’s important to focus on the result, or at least a way-point in your life. Don’t think about the process for getting there yet—that’s the next stepGive yourself permission to revisit this vision every day, even if only for a few minutes. Keep your vision alive and in the front of your mind.

    Plan Backwards

    It may sound counter-intuitive to plan backwards rather than forwards, but when you’re planning your life from the end result, it’s often more useful to consider the last step and work your way back to the first. This is actually a valuable and practical strategy for making your vision a reality.

    • What’s the last thing that would’ve had to happen to achieve your best life?
    • What’s the most important choice you would’ve had to make?
    • What would you have needed to learn along the way?
    • What important actions would you have had to take?
    • What beliefs would you have needed to change?
    • What habits or behaviors would you have had to cultivate?
    • What type of support would you have had to enlist?
    • How long will it have taken you to realize your best life?
    • What steps or milestones would you have needed to reach along the way?

    Now it’s time to think about your first step, and the next step after that. Ponder the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. It may seem impossible, but it’s quite achievable if you take it step-by-step.

    It’s important to revisit this vision from time to time. Don’t be surprised if your answers to the questions, your technicolor vision, and the resulting plans change. That can actually be a very good thing; as you change in unforeseeable ways, the best life you envision will change as well. For now, it’s important to use the process, create your vision, and take the first step towards making that vision a reality.
