5 Cheap and Useful Ways to Protect Your Home

5 Cheap and Useful Ways to Protect Your Home

Many people think that installing a security system in their home needs to be a very expensive project. Certainly, many security systems won’t fit into your budget, but the reality is that you can find many affordable and easy ways to protect your home and avoid spending lots of money on that task.

Sometimes, when people go on a vacation or simply leave their home for a couple of hours, they leave with the fear of being robbed. We know that every home can be a vulnerable place, so you should take steps to keep your property and your home safe. Following a few simple tips and installing a few gadgets will help.

Install fake surveillance cameras near your windows and doors

We know this is an old trick, but it is still useful! Fake cameras really do keep thieves away. You just need to find the most realistic-looking fake cameras and install them high up on your walls.

In addition to adding a fake security camera, you can also put warning stickers on your doors and windows with legends like “24-hour guarded property” or “Under video surveillance.” Despite the fact that the cameras are fake, thieves will not risk entering a house that seems to be guarded. If a security system is not in your budget, you can buy security signs and security decals that show the presence of a system even if you don’t actually have it.

Install a secret doorbell camera

This useful security gadget lets you watch people at your doorstep right from your smartphone, no matter where you are. Some people get nervous about answering the door without knowing who is there, and if you’re one of those people, you can avoid that problem by installing one of these gadgets at home. There are many versions on the market at different sizes and prices, but you can certainly get one for less than $50-$100.

Many secret doorbell cameras have other good features like an easy installation process, easy instructions for use, and the ability to capture live footage and even talk to the people that are outside your door.

Pretend to say “good-bye” to someone inside your home before you leave

Most of the time, people who are trying to get inside your home and steal your things are watching your moves and your daily routines. Saying goodbye to someone can make thieves think that someone is at home.

You can also leave an indoor light or the TV on to confuse thieves. If you are about to take a long vacation, instead of driving your car, contact a transportation service that can pick you up and drop you off. Some thieves think that when there are no parked cars at home, it is their time to attack.

If you need to travel and take your car with you, try to load up the car in the garage with the door closed. If you have to carry your bags to the car in public, do it as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Do NOT publish your plans, vacations or status updates when you are out

People just love sharing ALL their plans on social media, and some research has shown that one of the most common ways that thieves find targets is by scanning the victim’s social media accounts for their status updates.

Protect your outdoor belongings

You must know that leaving things (like your bicycle, scooter, or BBQ tools) lying around your backyard or in plain sight from the street can lure thieves onto your property. Someone could easily walk away with your stuff. You should lock them in a shed or in an enclosed garage area.

Another good idea is to take some pictures of your outdoor belongings or anything of value in the backyard. That way you can check whether something is missing after you come back home.

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

1. It burns more fat.

Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

3. It saves you money.

Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

4. It increases your immune system.

Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

5. It makes you face your fears head on.

People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

6. You will feel better in your clothes.

When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

7. You will embrace vulnerability.

When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

8. You will show the world the real you.

Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

9. You will have fun.

Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
