Student Loans

Beat Those Student Loans!

 

            Even if they’re financially savvy, a lot of Americans continue to carry student loan debt with them for years after they’ve graduated from college.  Use these strategies to shake off that heavy financial burden:

 

  • Make it a priority.  Yes, you have a lot of bills to pay, but focus on paying off student loans so you can turn your attention to saving for retirement.
  • Create a repayment plan that works.  Make sure the date your student loan payment is due works with your monthly budget, and consolidate your loans so you only need to make one monthly payment.
  • Focus on variable private loans.  The interest rates on these loans can quickly change, so pay as much toward them as possible while also putting at least a minimum monthly contribution toward fixed-rate federal loans.

Sign up for auto-deductions.  If you opt for auto-deductions, you won’t accidentally miss a payment date.  Plus, all government and some private lenders charge a slightly lower interest rate if you pay this way.

Using Natural Remedies to Cure Allergies

Using Natural Remedies
To Cure Allergies

 

Does spring fever make you sneeze and the family dog make your eyes water?  You’re not alone: The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America estimates as many as 30% of adults and 40% of children suffer from allergies.  To curb the effects, though, consider reaching for one of these natural remedies if your doctor gives his okay.

 

  • Butterbur – This root extract is often used to treat coughs, asthma, hay fever, headaches, and stomach ulcers.  Though considered safe, the plant itself contains cancer-causing substances, so it’s important to make sure the specific brand you use has had those substances removed.
  • Neti Pot – Neti Pots are used to prevent and treat upper respiratory conditions, but make sure the water you use is distilled and as sterile as possible.  Tap water contains chemicals that might actually make sinus conditions worse.
  • Raw honey – Eating a tablespoon of local, raw honey every day is supposed to help the body build a tolerance to the regional pollen and allergens in the air.
Quercetin – Naturally found in wine, onions, green tea, and citrus fruit, quercetin is a cell stabilizer, blocking the release of histamine, which causes inflammation.  Some sources suggest this is a long-term remedy, and people who suffer from seasonal allergies should take quercetin in the weeks leading up to spring.

4 Ideas For Happier Holidays

4 Ideas For Happier Holidays

 

            The holidays can get stressful in a hurry.  Try these simple methods for celebrating the season – and make it easier for you and your family.

  1. Focus on the act of giving, not the presents.  Buy gifts for the kids, but get your kids involved in giving homemade gifts (cookies, picture books) to other family members. 

  1. Start a family gift exchange.  One idea: have family members put books they’d enjoy on an Amazon.com wish list.  Share those lists and choose the books you want to give them.

  1. Participate in (or donate to) a charitable activity.  Check out a site like www.volunteermatch.org, but start looking early to make sure you are matched with the organization you want.  On a smaller scale, bake something special and deliver it to a fire station or senior citizens’ home.

  1. To ease your own stress, remember to plan ahead.  Use a calendar to set aside days for exercise and rest, and learn to say no if you have too many commitments.
