Checklist when buying your first car

Sponsored Post
When purchasing something, decisions are basically coming from our impulse feeling. Which is not the case as always especially if it’s an expensive one. Some or most of the things we wanted to buy require research, checking reviews, and most of all you have enough money for it.
Reality when we decide to buy our own car, it was a very exciting moment. Somehow think of how much will that cost us every month. But wanted to share with you some things you need to check prior owning a brand-new car.
1.       Have a budget
When you pay to the dealer, it doesn’t end up there. You have to consider after buying, you have to save for the car maintenance, gasoline, insurances and all. Make sure you have a budget that can compensate for all those after-sales expenses. The best way is to plan and set a budget for it. How much are you willing to shed monthly and make sure your everyday expenses will not be affected. Don’t spend what you cannot afford, believe me, it is not a good idea.
2.        Know which car suits your family.
Which means after you consider buying your first car, decide what type of vehicle you needed. We have   Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs), Asian Utility Vehicles (AUVs), and vans. Choose a car with the good option, is its fuel efficient? Is it light and convenient? Of course, think of your family’s safety. Check if it has Airbag system, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and cars.com can help you.
 
3.       Get the right features for the right car
If you have children or nearly planning to have one, it is a requirement to get a four doors type of car. Please always consider children opt to do the climbing in and out of the back seat. Also, consider, make sure you have a car seat with you for your child’s safety. Professional and dealer would explain much of this features when you are decided to purchase your first car.
4. Prepare for all the papers you need.
If you will be purchasing your car via loan application, dealers and bank will ask for your documents like financial documents that will support your purchase. Identification cards, employment papers.
5. Make sure you know how will you pay for it.
Are you be paying cash? Or will pay monthly. If you have decided to apply for a loan, check for the interest rates, years you will be paying for it and how much would be your downpayment. But, if you have the cash to pay for your new car it is the best option you could have, no worries on interest and no hassle paying monthly.
6. Take also the chance to canvass for dealers who offer car discounts, seen some dealers are now offering due to holiday season’s coming.
If all are prepared and ready, go ahead and have a happy hunt for your new car!

To make sure my children get the right amount of Vitamin D, I am preparing Vitamin D enrich foods like tuna, salmon and mackerel. Most dairy products like soy milk, cereals, cheese, yoghurt and even egg yolks.

Serious signs of Vitamin D deficiency are:

Nutrition Awareness For Kids

I believe nutrition awareness should start at home first and since school is the second home of our children, they should also promote and encourage healthy eating habits of their students. School programs can help children attain full educational and healthy eating habits by giving social support.

Happy nanay here kasi sa school ng kids ko no need to pay for an expensive costumes and Principal always encourage parents to be creative. Last year, we created hat out of recycled milk boxes and my husband helped sa drawing. See below photo from my instagram: Laking tipid dba? Art papers lang at glue okay na.

 

Year 2016 Nutrition Awareness

For this year, 2017 I prepared face mask, see below:

Star Apple and Pineapple Face Mask

There are ways on how we can promote healthy eating habits in school or at home.

  1. I am preparing home cooked meals for my children and to make more fun, I am creating bento for kids. 
  2. Let the children know the effects of junk food consumption.
  3. Healthy snacks or meals should be served in school.
  4. Let the children bring at least 1 fruit for each meal, cutting them into pieces will help.
  5. Follow the food pyramid, consists of Grow, Go and Glow.
  6. Be a role model to your children by drinking and eating fruits and vegetables.
  7. Do not skip breakfast.

 

Let’s promote healthy eating habits to our children.

 

10 MOTIVATION TO INCREASE YOUR VITAMIN C INTAKE

As a child, I bet your parents have always reminded you to take your vitamin C and this reminder can sometimes be annoying. This reminder should be taken seriously as taking vitamins are essential to our well-being and the lack of it can spell disaster to our day to day existence.

Our body needs these vitamins to function properly and each vitamin plays a respective role in maintaining a good health.

Let’s zero in on Vitamin C, It is a water soluble vitamin and considered one of the most effective nutrients. It is loaded with health and beauty benefits, thus, it is an imperative to fill in our body with food that are rich in Vitamin C and take Vitamin C supplements to get its optimum performance.

1. Enhances our Immune System
Change of weather and other factor can easily give a negative effect in your body especially if you have a low immune system making you susceptible to Coughs, Colds and flu. Vitamin C facilitates the absorption of iron and therefore strengthens the body’s resistance to infection.

2. Protection against Heart Diseases
Vitamin C restores and regenerate tissues to protect against heart disease as it aid in the iron absorption and decreases your bad cholesterol and triglycerides.

3. Lower your chances of Hypertension
Vitamin C lowers your blood pressure and decreases the chances of hypertension as well as serious health problems that may accompany high blood pressure.

4. Great for wound healing
People who underwent surgery or recovering from sports-related injuries are recommended to take high doses of Vitamin C to hasten wound healing. Vitamin C is essential in the formation of new connective tissue in healing wound.

5. Helps in Weight-Loss
Vitamin C can aid in losing fat and maintaining a healthy weight. There is a certain scientific evidence that shows taking Vitamin C on a regular basis helps in losing weight significantly since it lowers insulin, hence, instead of storing sugar and converting it into fats, it uses it as a fuel that leads to weight loss.

6. Stress Buster
Studies show that Vitamin C reduces the elevated levels of stress, hormones and cortisol, thus, lowering your chances of feeling stressed.

7. Essential in Fighting Cancer
Since Vitamin C is high in antioxidant properties, it protect the cells from DNA damage and mutation. It supports the body’s immune system and prevents certain cancer forming compounds from forming in the body.

8. Diabetes regulation
Vitamin C helps in regulating the sugar levels, reducing the risk of getting diabetes. Diabetic patients also acknowledges improvement of the symptoms of the existing cases. Supplementing Vitamin C influences glucose in our body cells and protects against many complications of diabetes.

9. Protects from Allergies and Asthma
Taking Vitamin C supplements helps in lowering histamine, thus, it lessen the chances of contracting asthma and lowers allergic reactions.

10. Essential beauty benefits
Vitamin C helps in production of Collagen which is an important building block of our Skin, Hair and Nails. People taking Anti-Aging supplements will get a greater result in adding Vitamin C in taking their supplements.

In Taking Vitamin C, make sure you are using its safest form. Take Bewell-C Sodium Ascorbate, a non-acidic Vitamin C and which is safe to be taken in large doses to get the full potential.

Bewell-C Sodium Ascorbate is available in all leading drugstores nationwide.
