Getting married is such an exciting time in your life. You can’t wait for your big day, when you see your future husband at the end of the aisle, waiting for you to commit himself to you forever. Both of you have been so busy choosing the perfect design for the bridesmaid dress and finding the right band to play at your reception. Most of the time it’s fun, but you’ve noticed something: both of you haven’t been as healthy as you used to be. And sure, there’s nothing wrong with clinking champagne glasses with family and friends to celebrate, but if it gets to be something you do every night, you might not fit into your wedding dress, and he might not look the best in his tux.

But health isn’t just about looking good. It’s about feeling good, too, and treating yourselves as best you can during a time that’s exciting but also stressful. So if you’re ready to get healthy, even with a crazy schedule, read on.

1. Remember to relax

These days, you can probably barely remember the last time you relaxed. Sure, you might have time for a quick twenty minutes of watching It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia at the end of the night, but is that enough? Chances are, your mind is constantly filled with wedding-related worries, from figuring out what cake you both want to agreeing on the venue. If you find yourself arguing a lot with your future hubby, then you probably both need a breather.

The American Pet Products Association (APPA) indicates that total pet industry expenditures in the United States reached $60.59 billion in 2015. Americans spent a total of $23 billion on pet food, $14 billion on supplies and over-the-counter medicine, almost $16 billion on veterinarian care, $2 billion on live animal purchases, and a little over $5 billion on pet services like grooming and boarding. Currently, 56 percent of American households have pets, with that number expected to increase. 

With an industry that appears to be recession-proof, there are many opportunities for an enterprising business person to capitalize on the willingness of individuals and families to own and care for animals.

If you are an animal lover yourself and have thought about starting your own pet business, here are some things you will want to consider.

Keep “business” in the pet business. Remember that starting a pet business is like any other business. Becoming an entrepreneur means that you will need to accomplish all the tasks required of any other business, regardless of whether it will be a traditional stone-and-mortar storefront or an ecommerce business conducted solely or primarily online. At a minimum, you will need to:

Before you even think about starting to play the guitar you need to put your hands on the actual instrument. Although you are surely tempted to believe that this is not necessary since you can always rent one or play the one of the instructor’s, having a guitar of your own will help you out so much more than what you initially think. 

Many beginners make the mistake of thinking they need the very best possible instrument, like a Collings guitar or similar. In reality, what is important is to get a guitar that will actually make it easier for you to learn. As a beginner, you are mainly interested in price, style, age, size, condition and where you buy the guitar from. 

Where Should You Buy Your Guitar From?

The beginner guitar player should always avoid the pawn shops, yard sales or flea markets, unless he/she is buying with the help of someone that does have the proper experience. If you never bought a guitar till now you surely do not actually know what the best option is. The best option you have as a beginner is to visit the local music retail shop. At the same time, online shopping is an opportunity if you are using the services of a company that is reputable. In this case it is very important that you look at the return policy though, just to be safe.

Whether you live on the coast or inland, floods are always a threat. All it takes is a prolonged downpour and a few factors to come together for the perfect storm. Knowing how to assess your cars after a flood can be helpful.

Assessing Your Vehicle

If your car has flooded, then chances are you’re dealing with other flood-related issues as well. Before doing anything else, make sure your family is safe and you’ve taken necessary steps to prevent further damage to your property. Once you’ve done this, you can turn your focus towards your car. Here are some things to evaluate and monitor:

  • Call the insurance company. One of the first things you need to do is call your insurance company. If there was widespread flooding in your area, your agent is going to be slammed with activity. The sooner you can get your claim filed, the faster it will be resolved.
  • Check depth of water. Grab a ruler or tape measure and check the depth of the water in the vehicle. This will give you an idea of how serious the damage may be. It’s possible that the water never rose to a level to harm key systems and components.
  • Calculate time of submersion. Estimate about how long the vehicle was submerged in water. The shorter the time frame, the more likely it is that you’ll be able to salvage the car. It’s also a good idea to note the type of water that flooded your car. Freshwater tends to cause less long-term damage.
  • Look at the weather. What sort of weather is approaching in the coming days? Hot temperatures could put the vehicle at risk of corroding, particularly if your car was flooded with saltwater.
