Earn with your Bucket list

Earn with your Bucket list

Researchers have listed the most frequent items on peoples’ bucket lists. The most popular are traveling in all shapes and forms, writing a book, inventing something that changes peoples’ lives, learning to play an instrument, starting and running a dream business, running a marathon and becoming a millionaire.

The study also shows that only few dreams ever are fulfilled. The main reason–people don’t have time and money. They have to spend their time in a day job to save for those few dreams that are affordable.

Becoming a millionaire is a nice dream that would allow one to fulfill all other items on Bucket list. If we skip earning million, then almost the only option to fulfill the dreams of life is to merge daily job and income stream with the dream. Here are few tips on how we can fulfill our dreams and earn income from them.

Travel

If traveling for a longer period, you can rent your apartment at home. You can do ordinary jobs while traveling. If you are creative, street art might become your source of income. Being a street musician is both a romantic and quite well-paid solution. You can teach your native language or take telecommuting jobs with you. You can write for magazines and teach anything you are good at. You can use the advantage of the season and take seasonal jobs like fruit picking, waiting and summer camps for kids. You can become a sport instructor, a translator, or become a freelance writer. You can sell travel photography. If your traveling is a long-term occupation, you can combine almost everything above mentioned and make your own travel blog and earn with it.

Write a book

Writing a book requires 2 resources–time for writing and investment for publishing. Up until now, most people were stopped by the enormous prices publishers are asking for publishing a book. Now the situation has improved. We have “publish on demand” options (which might have lower margins) that can give some valuable feedback on whether people would like to read the book. The second variable‒time‒should not be a problem if the dream is real. Publishing the book without cash investment allows you to sell it after it is finished, thus ensuring some time for writing the next book.

Invent something that changes people lives

We are facing bigger or smaller problems every day. While it is probable there is already a solution for them, but there is quite a significant possibility that nobody has solved the problem yet. It is a matter of finding out and then deciding what to do next. Most ideas don’t turn out into inventions and businesses because there is a lack of knowledge and/or resources.

Learn to play an instrument

Learning is an experience. When you learn, you go through some particular emotions, techniques, or maybe you change teachers; regardless, you find your way. This is a great resource you can explore. There are many people around you going through the same thing, and they would be glad if you shared your experience, your tests and trials. Turn learning an instrument into a blog or a book or perhaps become a mediator between teachers and students and earn with this.

Start and run a dream business

If you own an entrepreneur’s gene, you will be dreaming about your own business for your whole life. There are several reasons why people don’t start a business: it requires investment; it takes a lot of time; it is harder than one imagines; you fear to fail; there is stiff competition; you don’t have a good idea; or you are insecure or fearful of the unknown. Many businesses at their initial stage are unprofitable, and it takes a long time for them to become a secure source of income. What if we considered the dream business as a short-term project? With today’s communication possibilities, we can easy build nice pop-up businesses–cafes, restaurants, shops, galleries. You can try and test with small “model” version to find out how it works and whether you like it. If it turns out to be a great success, you can turn it into long-term business. And if not–you have fulfilled a dream and enjoyed it.

Run a marathon

Did you know that there is such a thing as GymPact? It is an application with a community behind it that both helps you to keep your promises on a gym or workout, and pays you some money if you don’t miss it. The money isn’t big, but still–it will keep you focused, will help not to skip your workout and will pay some money.

Can you think of more ways to make money by living out your bucket list? Let me us know in the comments!

Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

Are you a red wine drinker? What if I tell you sipping in a glass of wine can equate to an hour of exercise? Yup, it’s tried and tested. A new scientific study has just confirmed this wonderful news. So next time you hold a glass of Merlot, you can brag about one hour of hard workout. Rejoice, drinkers!

What the study found out

“I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Resveratrol could mimic exercise for the more improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do.”

(applauds)

I’m not saying this, but the study’s principal investigator Jason Dyck who got it published in the Journal of Physiology in May.

In a statement to ScienceDaily, Dyck pointed out that resveratrol is your magic “natural compound” which lavishes you with the same benefits as you would earn from working out in the gym.

And where do you find it? Fruits, nuts and of course, red wine!

Did I forget to mention Dyck also researched resveratrol can “enhance exercise training and performance”?

There are limits, of course

But, all is not gold as they say. If you’re a lady who likes to flaunt holding a glass of white wine in the club or simply a Chardonnay-lover,you have a bad (sad) news. The “one hour workout” formula only works with red wine, not non red wines. And don’t be mistaken and think you’ve managed 4 to 6 hours of workout sessions if you happen to gulp down a bottle of red wine.

And what can replace the golden lifetime benefits of exercise?Exercise is just as important as you age. Period! But hey, don’t be discouraged; look at the bigger picture here. A glass of red wine is not a bad deal after all!

The health benefits of red wine

But just how beneficial is the red alcoholic beverage to your body? As we all know red wine is a healthier choice youc an make when boozing.

Let’s hear it from a registered dietitian. Leah Kaufman lists red wine as the “most calorie friendly” alcoholic beverage. Sure, you won’t mind adding up to a mere 100 calories per 5-ounce glass of red wine after you realize it contains antioxidants, lowers risk of heart disease and stroke, reduces risk of diabetes-related diseases, helps avoid formation of blood clots and lowers bad cholesterol level.

Wantmore? Wine could also replace your mouthwash because the flavan-3-ols in red wines can control the “bad bacteria” in your mouth.To add to that list of benefits, moderate wine drinking may be beneficial for your eyes too – a recent study mentions.

Be aware of the risks, too

Having mentioned all the ‘goods’ about red wine, you cannot underplay the fact that it is still an alcohol, which isn’t the best stuff to pour into your body. What is excessive drinking going to do to your body? Know the risks and you should be a good drinker at the end of the day.

However, you don’t want to discard the red vino from your “right eating”regimen just because it stains your teeth blue. M-o-d-e-r-a-t-i-o-n. Did you read that? That’s the operative word when it comes to booze.

By the way, when chocolate is paired with wine, particularly red, they can bring you some exceptional benefits towards your health.But again, if you tend to go overboard and booze down bottles after bottles, you are up for the negative side of alcohol, and we all know what too much of sweetness (sugar) can do to our body (open invitation to diabetes and heart diseases if you aren’t aware).

Folks, the red grape beverage is certainly a good buy to have a good hour’s worth of cardio, provided you keep the ‘M’ word in mind. Cheers!
