4 Situations Where A Towing Service Can Save You

4 Situations Where A Towing Service Can Save You

Emergencies can happen at any time; it is quite horrific how some situations can sometimes become unexpectedly life-threatening. I’m sure we have all seen small mistakes put the lives of other people in danger at some point in our lives. I’ve heard it said that speed kills, and looking at the massive number of deaths on roads every year, that notion is very clearly supported.

    Though there are emergency services like highway rescue patrol available at any time, there are still times when a little mistake becomes a major problem to overcome, and rescue is too far off. There are a large number of vehicles on roads, and, unfortunately, also lots of accidents. It is also not feasible for highway patrol to cater to every emergency situation at the same time.

    This is one of the reasons it makes sense to have – in addition to other emergency services – a towing service at your disposal, so you can rest assured that in case of an accident or a breakdown, all the available options are covered, and assistance is not far away. This knowledge is valuable, as you know you will not be left stranded to fend for yourself. Towing services can really come in handy in emergencies when options become limited, and time is of the essence.

    Here are some situations where a towing service can be a life saver.

    1. Accidents

    Reasons behind accidents are many, but the outcomes can be horrific. Accidents occur when people drive recklessly or don’t adapt their driving to the road condition. Weather conditions like rain, snow, fog, and ice make cars more prone to accidents.

    Involvement in any accident is a disorienting experience for anyone. Say you’re traveling with your family in bad weather conditions and somehow end up in an accident. But what if help is too far away and there are not many other vehicles passing by? In situations like this, a nearby towing service can come as a relief, as they are professionals used to handling roadside situations. They are also quick at responding to any emergency situation, usually within 30 minutes.

    2. Engine Breakdown

    Cars are machines, and with every mile covered your vehicle experiences some wear and tear; sometimes this wear and tear becomes so big that the vehicle comes to a complete halt. So, out of nowhere, you find yourself stuck in the middle of the road, making you prone to being hit by other vehicles. In such situations the towing service not only tows the vehicle to a safer point, but can also informs the driver of their options.

    3. Flat tire

    This is a situation that people often don’t give the required attention to. What if you are passing through a remote road and all of a sudden get a flat, but you don’t have a spare tire; or even if you do have a spare tire, you don’t have the ability to change it – then what will you do? A tire bursting while driving can also be a dangerous situation, as you could lose control of your car.

    A flat tire can put you in a situation with not many options left. In situations like this, every minute counts, especially if you are alone. This is where a towing service can bridge the gap and repair the damages within a respective timeline.

    4. Out of Gas

    Say you have take a short detour and you forget to fill up the gas tank; after covering some 30-40 miles, you find yourself on the side of the road with no gas, and no gas station nearby. The situation looks pretty bleak, but if you add bad weather, snowfall, or heavy traffic, then the situation becomes even more complicated.

    In situations like this, giving a call to the local towing service is all that you need to do. Towing services cater to almost every possible emergency situation with utmost professionalism.

    Of course, calling a towing service is not the first or only option when there is an emergency, but where options are limited and there are some risks involved, getting roadside assistance from a towing service will give you relief and peace of mind. Towing services are vital in many situations, and can save you from a lot of problems and risks. Nothing is more precious than life, and no amount of money can buy a second life for you. So make the wise decision to be a safe driver, and know all your available options.

    10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

    Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

    Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

    So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

    Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

    Video Summary

    1. It is easier.

    When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

    2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

    Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

    3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

    Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

    4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

      If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

      5. It could lead to better sleep.

      Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

      6. It can help your skin.

      For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

      7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

      Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

      8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

      Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

      9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

      For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

      10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

        Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

        Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

        Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

        Sleep well with your naked body!

        With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

        Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
