5 Ways to Spend your Tax Refund

 

Tax day is coming up! Tax Day is on the 15th but this year, you have until April 18th to do your taxes since the 15th land on a weekend.

Have you done your taxes? If you haven’t… you should probably stop reading this a do it.

For those who have done their taxes and got some $$ back… here are 5 ways that you can treat yourself:

 

1) SPA DAY!

If you got a large sum back from you returns why not spend it on a day of relaxing.  We know you deserve it.

 

2) Ice Cream

You scream, I scream, we all scream for Ice Cream.  Who doesn’t love ice cream?! I can’t think of a better way to spend my tax returns… except maybe on socks.

 

3) New Socks

Who doesn’t need new socks?  They are always going missing and we are left with one of every pair.  I don’t even remember the last time I wore a pair long enough to worn them out with holes.  Shop fun socks for the whole family here.

 

4) Movies with the Family

Need a good laugh, cry, or scare? Take the family out for a movie!  What is your favorite genre of movie?

 

5) Cleaning Service

This is one of my favorites.  Treat yourself by having someone else clean the house!

5 more minutes please!

 

Who is still feeling the effects of Daylight Saving Time?  I have been channeling my K. Bell 5 More Minutes sock all week!  Apparently I did not use the suggestions provided in our Waking up with Ease- Daylight Saving Time post.

Me wanting 5 more minutes of sleep sparked my curiosity of how everyone here at K. Bell would want to spend an extra 5 more minutes.

Here is top 10 list of activities that K. Bell employees would like “5 more minutes” on a daily basis.

 

1) 5 more minutes of morning coffee!

This was the winner! Whether you eat breakfast or not, almost everyone wanted a little more time in the morning to enjoy their morning cup of coffee or tea before rushing out the door.

2) 5 more minutes of sleep

This one proved that I wasn’t the only person struggling to wake up this week.

 

3) 5 more minutes before bed

If you are like me, I love sleep, but I hate having to have to go to sleep.  It would be nice to have 5 extra minutes to read a book before bedtime.

4) 5 more minutes of lunch

How do you spend your lunch time? Some of us like to go out for a nice lunch, some like to hit the gym or stretch their legs on a walk around our building.

 

5) 5 more minutes with kids

Spending precious time with your kids on a hectic and busy day.

6) 5 more minutes without kids

Opposite of number 5.  5 more minutes to relax and enjoy you time before the Kids wake up.

7) 5 more minutes of weekend fun

If we can’t have an extra day for the weekend, can we get an extra 5 minutes?

 

8) 5 more minutes of house being clean

I definitely feel this one.  How is it that only minutes go by before a clean house turns into a dirty house?

9) 5 more minutes of family time

Everyone is constantly busy that getting everyone in the same room is almost impossible. How you do spend quality family time?

10) 5 more minutes of getting ready.

Sometimes we all need a little extra time to look our best for the day.  An extra five minutes can prevent the “oops I only put mascara on one eye” day.

 

 

Where would you like to have 5 more minutes in your daily life?

Waking Up With Ease- Daylight Saving Time

 

 

Spring forward! Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday, and that means we lose an hour of sleep!

Here are some ways to prepare you for the time change.

 

1) Wake up 10 minutes earlier everyday.

Starting today, set your alarm so that you are waking up 10 to 15 minutes earlier each day.  This gradually gets your biological clock prepared for the loss of an hour making a smoother transition.  For example, if you wake up at 7:00 AM, start waking up at 6:50 AM the next day, and then 6:40 AM the next and so on.

2) Exercise mid day on Saturday

Exercise promotes good sleep by the warming up and cooling down of the body.  Exercising in the middle of the day allows your body to have enough time to cool down into a sleepy state.

3) Wake up at your usual time on Sunday.

Whether you have or have not gotten enough sleep Saturday night, make sure you wake up at the usual time.  Sleeping in just makes adjusting harder.

 

Comment below on how you prepare for Daylight Saving Time.

 

Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday is next week! Who’s ready to party?!

Most of you know Mardi Gras as a large Carnival celebration in New Orleans, but did you know that it is celebrated all over the world? Belgium, Brazil, Germany, and Italy are a few of the countries that celebrate.  Mardi Gras was was originated in Europe and is considered a Christian holiday! It is the day before Lent, and was created for people to binge on food and fun before 40 Days of Penance from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.  You can get a little more info here.

Do you celebrate Mardis Gras?  If you do, how do you celebrate it?

Chinese New Year (AKA Lunar New Year) starts this Saturday! With it, we welcome the year of the Fire Rooster.

Did you know that not only is each year associated with an animal sign but also one of five elements: Gold, wood, water, fire or earth.

The animal zodiac cycles every 12 years, the elements cycle through every 60 years.

Find out more about your chinese zodiac sign HERE.

The New Year is a huge deal in China. Unlike the USA where it lasts one day, in China, the celebration lasts for two weeks and is filled with family, food, festivities and fireworks.
