10 Ways To Personalise A Loved One’s Funeral

One thing that funeral directors are fully aware of when arranging a funeral for a family’s departed loved one is that the need to make that funeral personalised is likely to be high on the list of requests made of them. Whilst funeral directors will happily accommodate such requests, the key point is that the departed’s family and friends are more critical to any personalisation than the funeral director.

We say that for the simple reason that funeral directors, except in rare circumstances, will not have known the deceased; therefore, they will not know any specifics about them and, thus, what would make the funeral personal to them. Below, silkwoodfunerals.com.au has advised ten ways to personalise a loved one’s funeral.

Follow The Deceased’s Wishes: Many people now pre-plan their funeral or at least give their wishes for what type of funeral they want. As such, ensure that those wishes are followed and that the funeral you have for them is as close as possible to what they would have liked.

Speak To As Many People As Possible Who Knew The Deceased: For anyone who has passed, there will be family members, friends, colleagues, and others in their social circle who have stories to tell about them, hopefully positive ones. Speak to as many people as possible to bring those stories together during the funeral or life celebration.

5 Environmental Benefits of Landscaping

5 Steps To Mental Wellbeing That Landscaping Can Create

Most people’s first thought when they hear the words, ‘landscaping’ and ‘mental health’ will be that there is not much congruency between them. That is understandable as the worlds of garden landscapes and the wellbeing of our minds are two very distinctive subjects.

Most people will at least accept that a garden is a place where you can sit and relax, soak up the sunshine or play with your children, all of which are healthy pursuits and commensurate with feeling good. We could simply leave it at that as proof that a garden designed by yourself or landscape architects can have a positive impact on our mental health.

However, it goes much further than that, and if we focus on landscaping and how it can boost our mental health, there has not only been a lot written about this but there have even been studies and academic papers written on the subject too. Some of the research has found evidence that experiencing the outdoors and nature as you would when both creating and using a landscaped garden, can induce the following:

  • Improved Memory
  • Improved Attention
  • Happiness
  • Social Engagement
  • Reduced Stress
  • Improved Sleeping Patterns
  • Improved Task Management

17 Ways to Ensure Your Air Con So it is More Eco Friendly

How an air conditioning system is used contributes to whether it is eco-friendly. According to air conditioning consultants at airandwater.com.au, those interested in having a smaller carbon footprint – i.e., using less of the earth’s resources, can quickly adopt a few techniques to ensure their air conditioner runs more efficiently. Not only will they use less power, but it will also cost them less over the unit’s life, so they are saving. Often, what is good for the earth also brings financial benefits to us.

Here are 17 tips to ensure your air conditioner use is eco-friendly.

  • Make sure you close windows and doors when the air con is on.
  • Seal all those gaps around the doors and windows and anywhere else you can find them.
  • If possible, set the thermostat for between 24-26C in the summer, as a temperature below that will increase the cost of running it by 10%. This may not be possible in heatwave conditions.
  • When the outside temperature drops, turn the a/c off and open all the doors and windows. Use a fan to help circulate cool air, as fans take less power.
  • Open windows to the prevailing breeze and open another window opposite it to help the airflow through. This can often be enough without the a/c.
