7 Steps To Write Your First Book

So you want to write a book? Here are 7 steps to write your first book so you can get published and become a bestselling author.

Are you a writer who has only written web content or a writer who has only written as a hobby? If you are, you may still have a dream of writing your own book, a book that will get published, and perhaps even become a bestseller.

Most writers who are learning how to publish a book may have already written a book, while you may have yet to accomplish this important task. The good news, however, is that it may work in your favour.

But before you read further, join my Facebook Group for Writers and download a free checklist of Book Writing Resources.

If you have yet to write a book, there are a number of important steps that you will first want to take. So here are 7 steps to write your first book that can improve your chances of writing a book that will get published and become a bestseller.

1. Choose a genre

One of the first things that you will want to do when looking to write a book that will get published, is to choose a genre. This involves first deciding who you want to write for. Do you want to write for children, young adults, or adults?

2. Decide what to write about

Next, decide what you want to write about. Do you want to educate your readers or give them a captivating story that they just can’t put down?

As for the topic or storyline that you choose, be sure to choose something that interests you. A writer who is passionate about what they write is more likely to see success.

3. Learn about the market

Once you have an idea of what type of book you want to write, as well as an idea on your theme, connect with a book agent or publishing company and get an idea of what types of books publishers are looking for.

For example, an agent publisher that is accepting manuscripts for science fiction novels may give you specific tips and ideas, as well as things to avoid.

Writing a book with a theme that interest you, as well as a theme that is in demand by publishers is one of the best ways to get your book published.

4. Write an outline or plot

As for writing your book, it is important to start out with a plot. If you are writing a non-fiction book, such as a how-to guide, be sure to create an outline for you to follow.

Fiction authors, however, should first outline a plot. Unfortunately, many authors, especially new writers, just start writing.

Of course, it is important to get your thoughts on paper or on your computer, but a clear and solid plot is an important component of writing a book that will get published.

Books that are just a collection of words are likely to not get published. But you can improve your writing skills with this list of the best writing classes and online writing workshops to get the writing skills training you need to become a bestselling author.

5. Edit and proofread

Once your book has been written, it is important that you do the proper amount of proofreading and editing.

Many professionals vary on the number of times that a book should be proofread, but you should read through yours no less than three times.

In addition to doing your own book editing, you may benefit from the professional knowledge and expertise of a professional editor. Many editors will charge a reasonable fee to edit your manuscript.

As previously recommended, it is a wise idea to first find out what sort of books publishers are looking for. You can do this by using the internet or printed resource guides, like the Writer’s Market.

6. Contact an agent or publisher

If you highlighted or recorded the information that you read, you may already have a list of publishers or agents you want to submit your book to.

Once your book has been proofread and edited, you are now ready to send your book to publishing companies or, along with a professional query letter.

You’ll be required to submit a synopsis of your book and a few chapters along with a query letter, so make sure you have all of this ready before you contact the agent or publisher.

7. Consider self-publishing

If you don’t manage to get a book deal with an agent or publisher, or feel it’ll not be worth it, consider self-publishing, as you can earn significantly more as an independent author than as a traditionally published author.

Book publishing coach, Derek Murphy writes, “Unless you’re getting a deal over $100K, which means they are seriously invested in your book, you’ll probably do better to self-publish.”

5 Essential Health Tips For Your Post-COVID Vacation Abroad

Dying to travel after Corona? These health tips will help you prepare for almost anything on your post-COVID vacation abroad.

Wondering when will it be safe to travel again? Have you grown tired of travel movies, virtual tours, and travel magazines being your only source of travel inspo during the pandemic and are dying to travel once again?

If you love and miss travelling to foreign lands and are fed up of only being able to take road trips of late, you’re probably just waiting for the world to open up and travel to start up again in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

But before you pack your bags, dig out your passport and get ready to head out into the blue yonder, here are some health tips to stay safe on your post-COVID vacation abroad.

Vacations are typically times of great fun and entertainment that allow us to ignore the problems of daily life and enjoy ourselves. But there’s always the possibility of something going wrong and raining on your parade.

Whenever you travel to a foreign country, especially, there are a lot of things you have to keep in mind. Health problems and injuries are some of the most common problems vacationers face.

When you’re out running around having fun, the likelihood of getting injured or catching an infection increases significantly. You don’t want to have to deal with these problems when you’re far away from home on your vacation.

There are a lot of things you need to prepare for when planning a trip and medical care should be at the top of that list. These health tips will help you prepare for almost anything on your vacation abroad:

#1. Save the emergency numbers for your area

Depending on where you travel, the numbers for police or medical care may be different than what you are used to. Make sure you verify and save the numbers are in case you run into trouble.

You should also make sure you always have a Smartphone with GPS enabled and have decent reception where you’re staying. This is most important for those vacationing far away from civilization, such as on camping trips.

#2. Don’t forget your travel insurance

When you get travel insurance, make sure it covers medical expenses in foreign countries as well. The last thing you want is a trip to the hospital, especially when you are the one footing the bill.

Nothing says ruined vacation like spending all your money on a stay in the hospital. So, buy the best travel insurance plans and make sure to get one that will cover any medical expenses you might run into.

Better to be safe than sorry, right?

#3. Get all your vaccinations

While finding the best medical facilities and the best travel insurance is important when you travel, there are also some things you can do to protect yourself and make sure you don’t need any medical aid in a foreign land.

The best way to do this is to ensure you get healthy before you even leave. It’s essential to get a checkup and take all the required vaccinations before going on a trip, especially one out of the country.

If the COVID-19 vaccine is available in your country, make sure you get the vaccine plus the booster shots well before you travel, as it takes a few weeks for your body to build immunity after vaccination.

Besides COVID-19, there may be other nasty bugs out there that your body is not used to dealing with, and these can make you really sick, too. So you want to make sure you get those shots.

#4. Stock up on immune-system supplements

You just cannot be too careful when travelling during a pandemic. The best way to avoid coming down with infections is to give your immune system a good boost.

Even if you’re not used to taking supplements, it’s a good idea to stock up on Vitamin C and carry some immune system supplements to boost immune system function.

Post-COVID Vacation

#5. Carry a first-aid kit

If you’re travelling somewhere secluded, like a camping trip, make sure to bring a first aid kit. While this may not seem as important if you’re staying at a Club Mahindra resort in Maldives, it still cannot hurt.

But if you’re far away from medical attention, you do not want to be left without any medications that you require on a regular basis, such as your asthma or diabetes medications. So make sure you carry a mini first-aid kit that has all the essentials you will possibly need.

Band-aids, disinfectant, hand sanitiser, masks and anything else you might need to kill germs or avoid catching infections should all be a part of your medical kit.

Vacations are a lot of fun and a great way to refresh your mind and spirit, but having unexpected medical emergencies crop up can ruin the whole trip for you. Using the tips above you can mitigate or even prevent this from happening.

By properly preparing for all eventualities and making sure you’re mitigating the risks of getting sick, you can better enjoy your trip without having the flu or a cold drag you down.

Check out some RCI-affiliated resorts in Maldives if you’re wondering where to travel during COVID or where to take post-COVID vacations.

Don’t forget to wear a mask and carry hand-sanitiser everywhere you go until the pandemic is over.

Providing Elderly Care? Here Are Some Self-Care Tips To Manage Stress

Providing elderly care at home for old people? Here’s how to manage stress and practise self-care while helping old people.

Many women, at some point in their lives, will end up taking care of the elderly, whether they are caring for older parents, in-laws or even an older husband.

The downside of taking care of elderly patients — even people you love — is that it can be extremely frustrating and upsetting for all parties concerned, especially for the carer, and you can never fully appreciate exactly how stressful it can be.

How to manage stress when providing old-age care at home

Caring for others can often bring out every possible negative emotion in you that you could ever think of and put you on the fast track to burnout.

It’s a full-time occupation because you’ll find that it is all you ever think about, even when you are elsewhere. Therefore, it is extremely important to learn how to recognise the signs of stress and how to cope with it early on.

Caregivers can experience extreme stress over the course of their time as a carer for an elderly relative. The most upsetting thing is perhaps getting to know a person really well and then have him or her turn around and not recognise you anymore.

It can be heartbreaking, but this may well happen to you. This is obviously an extreme example, but it can cause major stress on your part. There are other causes of stress when caring for the elderly as well.

The list can include but is not limited to, non-compliance with requests, violence, threatening or unreasonable behaviour, illness, confusion and then, of course, there is the amount of work that you will need to do in order to care for another individual on a full-time basis.

Even if you are not with that elderly person 24 hours a day, it is still hard to get away from the role. You will find that you constantly think about it and cannot switch off. It may even become the focus of your life until you learn how to deal with it.

It is important to recognise the symptoms of stress. You may find that you are unable to eat, eat too much or suffer from a lack of sleep, even when you are extremely tired. You may become depressed and moody, or find yourself bursting into tear for no apparent reason other than you feel like it.

You will almost certainly feel like you are running on empty but keep going even though you feel like you have no energy left at all. This will result in lethargy and snapping at those closest to you. Your frustrations may even be directed at the person you are caring for at the time.

You will also find that you will see less of your friends and family because you don’t have time to make the effort any more. In short, your life will revolve around the elderly person you care for but your moods will swing like a pendulum.

When you get to that stage, it is time to do something about it! As soon as you recognize that you have some of those symptoms you must start to take care of your own health because, if you are not mentally well, then you are not fully capable of looking after someone else.

How you cope with this and solve the problem is up to you because everyone has different needs and different ways of relaxing. Some carers simply take a break. They go on holiday or take some time off and arrange for someone else to be around to relieve them for a bit.

By doing this, you will not be worrying constantly and will be able to enjoy your time off. Other may seek advice from a counsellor so that they can discuss their frustrations and get them all out into the open.

The reason they choose a professional to get online therapy is that they are paid not to judge. You may also be able to get home help in so that you can have more time to yourself during the day.

There is no way of avoiding the stress that caregivers are put under, but you have to take care of yourself first. That is the golden rule. Everyone needs a break, and caregivers are no different, so make sure that you get some time off before everything becomes too much.

How to get a respite as a senior citizen carer

When you do accept the task of being the one who provides elderly nursing care for a family member who is no longer capable of taking care of themselves, the key element to remember is that you have no idea just how long that commitment will be.

It could be months, it could be years, but either way, you will be mentally exhausted and close to burnout within a few weeks of beginning your role as the primary caregiver.

The problem is that you will find it difficult to actually switch off and thus will find it essential to rest every now and again, whether that means getting away for a few days or taking a break within your own home.

Either way, just like an ordinary full-time job, you will need to practice extreme self-care and recharge your batteries because they will get very low very quickly.

Before you can think about when you will take a break, you must make arrangements to have your elderly relative taken care of in your absence. There are a few options when it comes to this element of your own personal self-care.

The first is arranging for geriatric nursing care in retirement homes for old age. Many old-age care homes actually reserve rooms solely for respite cases in order for families to have a rest from the constant demands that are placed upon them.

You can view the home for old people in question before booking a place, and all of the elderly homes that provide senior care services should be listed on the Internet, but you must also consider the old age home cost.

Another option is getting a home attendant for elderly care services for the time that you are away or taking a break. Getting a home attendant who visits for a few hours a day to wash, dress and feed your relative will allow you to provide home care for the elderly in their own homes.

However, elderly care providers may not remain with them round the clock. Another version of these is to arrange for home care services for the elderly, which means that your relative will have someone there for a longer period of time but again not at their beck and call around the clock.

If you spend a lot of time with your relative then in-home nursing care for elderly not be the best option to give you peace of mind, and of course, it all depends on how able your relative is, to begin with.

The final option is actually getting another member of your family to help out for a few days, just to relieve you of your elderly care duties for the time being. It would possibly be easier to hand over the reins because there would be less chance that they could not be brought up to speed with developments and routines.

You could also reach them at a moment’s notice and have peace of mind that your elderly relative was being cared for. This is all dependent on getting a volunteer at all, let alone one that you could trust with that task.

Of course, you could always combine two or more of these elderly care options if it was financially viable for you to do so, as long as money is often no object where the welfare of a family member is concerned.

The choice is yours, but for your own health and well-being, you must take a break as often as you possibly can in order to remain mentally functional. Burnout is no good for you or for the relative whose welfare is in your hands.

Even if you think of yourself as a strong, independent woman who doesn’t need help, as primary caregiver helping old people, you owe it to your family to take a break.

5 self-care tips when you’re taking care of the elderly

Regardless of who you providing elder care for though, it is absolutely necessary to do all you can to preserve your own mental health and that of your patient.

There are many ways and means of achieving this, and below are listed just five of the most popular self-care tips for you to try:

1. Take regular breaks

Taking a break from the elderly person or people that you are caring for can give you a chance to reduce the stress that the job inevitably puts on you. This could be a five-minute break whilst you are working or a day of doing something that you love.

Taking a breather will not only benefit you but also the person that you are caring for. It will allow you both to gather your thoughts without causing resentment on either side.

It may just be the time away you need to readjust your focus and gather your thoughts, as well as reminding yourself why you are doing that particular job! As long as you gain that perspective, you will be able to go back to caring as good as new within a short period of time.

2. Take part in activities that you both enjoy

These are commonly referred to as bonding activities because they capitalize on the common interests you share and build a strong foundation for you to coexist on.

If you are looking after a stranger then this is essential in getting to know them properly. If you are looking after a family member then you are likely to give him or her joy just by spending that relaxing time there.

3. Come to an arrangement that suits you both

It is unlikely that the elderly person you are caring for wants you in their home every hour of every day. Some will want you at their beck and call, but the majority like their own space and will only enjoy spending time with you up to a point.

Independence is very important to the majority of elderly people, especially when they may feel that it is being taken away from them.

Always respect their wishes by coming to some arrangement as to when you will drop by and what you will be doing together on a particular day. Of course, this doesn’t apply to those caring for the elderly in retirement homes.

4. Establish a routine

Establishing a routine will help you both to understand exactly where you are with each other. Some elderly people like a routine because it helps them to anticipate your activities.

Breaking from that routine may unsettle them and provoke negative feelings towards you and your role. Seniors also tend to loathe anything new and a routine is reassuring to them because it ensures that nothing new will be introduced without their consent.

A routine will help you to move through the motions when necessary but will also establish a role that you are both happy with, thus heading off any difficulties before they begin.

5. Seek professional help

If you find that caring for the elderly is getting too much for you and you are becoming depressed as a result, a professional counsellor on the Ask SHEROES free online counselling chat helpline can help you talk through your feelings.

Venting your feelings to a professional will lift the weight off your shoulders once in a while and help to enable you to continue your role as a caregiver. You can get online counselling free when you download the SHEROES app for women.

You could also practice certain energy healing techniques like Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), which is based on energy psychology and the theory that our emotions and physical symptoms are linked to the body’s energy system.

Mindfulness meditation is another technique that can help you reduce stress and has many benefits in healing your body and mind.

Of course, none of these tips comes with a guarantee because they all depend on individual circumstances. You have to find out what works for you and the elderly person you are caring for.

You Can’t Live Forever (Yet), But You Can Look 10 Years Younger Naturally

You may not be able to live forever just yet, but there are many things you can do to preserve your health and look 10 years younger naturally.

Many people are interested in staving off the effects of aging for reasons of vanity. They don’t actually want to be immortal but are just interested in looking younger for longer and perhaps having a few less aches and pains.

But there are those with greater ambitions. There are those who want to slow their aging so that they can live forever and then enjoy all of the existential changes that would come from that.

This is completely impossible, of course. Right? Well, that depends on whom you listen to. Many scientists believe that the first person to live forever has already been born.

The argument goes that someone born today who lives for 120 years will get to benefit from all the latest advances in modern medicine, life-extension and longevity.

In 30 years time, we will definitely have better medical technology and be able to cure a lot of deadly diseases. 20 years more and we might be able to extend the average life span with gene doping, perhaps by rejuvenating the telomeres.

30 years later and we may be able to perform a brain transplant… 250 years later and we might be able to upload our consciousness to the computer. If you think this all sounds rather far-fetched, so did the internet – would you be able to explain it to someone alive 100 years ago?

The Top Methods for Extending Lifespan Greatly

To demonstrate just how possible this is, let’s take a look at some of the best life-extension options we have for extending our lifespan in the near future.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

In November 2020, a new study announced that for the first time in humans, two key biological hallmarks of aging – telomere length shortening and accumulation of senescent cells – can be reversed using a specific protocol of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).

The significance of this study lay in the fact that it proved aging can, indeed, be targeted and reversed at the basic cellular-biological level.

Gene Doping

Insertional gene doping is already being used by doctors and essentially allows you to permanently alter your DNA through a single injection.

Among other things, this could someday enable us to strengthen cell walls – extending our lifespan by approximately 30% and making us less susceptible to fire or toxins.

In the distant future, we may be able to emulate the abilities of some species of jellyfish that can actually restore their entire bodies by returning to a polyp state.

Consciousness Uploading

Right now, we don’t know if it is truly possible to upload our consciousness or even if we would want to.

One speculated methodology though, involves potentially replacing each brain cell or brain structure with mechanical parts, one piece at a time.

Brain Transplants

If you think this sounds like something out of science fiction, such a procedure is actually going to be attempted in the near future.

Not ready for a head transplant just yet? Don’t worry! The best you can do is simply to live as healthily as you possibly can and you could extend your lifespan and quality of live by many years.

Top Ways to Instantly Look Younger

Unless they are still in their early twenties, everyone wants to look younger. There are very few people who think that grey hair, wrinkles or age spots make them look more attractive and the unfortunate thing is that once these things start to appear, they can be extraordinarily difficult to reverse.

Many of these things can be reversed; it’s just that it takes a long time. And you would have been much better off trying to prevent them from arising in the first place, rather than trying to turn back the clock.

What if you don’t have the time to begin an anti-aging skin routine? What if it’s too late for amino acids and antioxidants? Let’s take a look at some of the things you can do instead to look younger instantly.

Change Your Hair

One of the easiest ways to quickly look younger is to change your hairstyle. The result of this will depend very much on your face shape and your preferences.

But often choosing a shorter haircut will be the best way to look instantly younger for both men and women. This can also be slimming, as it shows off your neck – one of the thinnest parts of your body.

Exfoliate

Exfoliating is definitely one of the very best ways to make you look younger. This will remove any dead skin cells or dirt from the top layer of the skin on your face and in turn make your skin more even, making your wrinkles much more shallow.

Another benefit of exfoliating is that it reveals the much healthier and more youthful skin underneath. This has a natural glow which can make you appear healthier and younger at the same time.

Whiten Your Teeth

Another very easy way to instantly look younger is to whiten your teeth. Our teeth are one of the biggest giveaways when it comes to our true age.

So if you keep your pearly whites looking fresh, strong and white as snow, you’ll look younger and healthier by default.

Dress Correctly

Many people think that the best way to look younger is to wear younger clothes. In fact though, the opposite is normally true.

That’s because very young looking clothes risk making you look older by comparison. Dressing your age is, surprisingly, one of the best ways to appear younger in many cases.

The Best Nutrition To Prevent Aging

There are lots of things you can do to slow the sands of time and age a little slower, most of which involves adopting a healthier lifestyle.

If you can avoid the sun, get lots of exercise and learn to better handle stress; all these things will keep you looking and feeling younger. But sometimes it’s even simpler than that.

In fact, one of the very best ways to stay young is just to eat right. Eating the right foods can help you to fend off deterioration as well as fortify yourself against illness and help your body rejuvenate itself.

Here are some of the best nutritional supplements you can include in a balanced, healthy diet plan that will help you stay youthful and healthy longer.

Antioxidants

Most important of all are your antioxidants which help to combat free radicals in the body. Free radicals are compounds that that are reactive when they come into contact with the cell walls.

This is bad news, because they damage the exterior of the cells and make your skin look wrinkled and aged. Worse, they can also damage DNA and cause mutations that lead to cancer.

Eating lots of antioxidants will keep free-radical damage to a minimum, thereby reducing the negative effects they have on the body.

Vitamin C

Besides being a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin C also happens to boost the immune system, which means that it can help to fight all manner of illnesses and invading forces that can badly damage your health in older age.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega 3 fatty acids are very good for keeping your brain young and healthy in older age. That’s because it is able to improve cell membrane permeability, speeding up communication between brain cells.

Even better, omega-3 is also an antioxidant, protects joints and improves nutrient absorption and, like Vitamin C, it also slows the breakdown of muscle.

Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and they’re incredibly important for your health – especially as they age.

These molecules serve all manner of important roles in the body from forming enzymes to aid digestion to forming neurochemicals.

They also act as the raw materials that the body is made from though and that makes them crucial in restoring tissues as we get older including muscle and skin.

Superfoods

Superfoods are not only rich in antioxidants but contain many essential nutrients that modern diets don’t provide.

Superfoods like quinoa, chia, flax seeds, avocados, matcha tea, maca root, spirulina, wheatgrass, moringa, chlorella and other greens can provide many health benefits.

Regular Exercise

Exercise is also essential for life extension as it prevents menopause weight gain in women. There are many ways in which the right exercise can help you stay younger and preserve your quality of life.

Yoga and qigong are some of the best exercises for seniors to maintain flexibility, overall health and well-being and even glowing skin.
