Staying In Shape When You Have Young Kids

Before I had my two kids, I was used to working out at the gym, playing badminton and going for a run whenever I wanted. With a toddler and baby, I found it was much more difficult to find the time to exercise and invest in my own health and well-being in the way I was used to. However, I was determined to eke out some time in my day for myself and found that if you’re willing to be flexible and take a creative approach to the way you exercise, you can stay in shape. I started this blog to share my tips with other mums and help readers create their own fitness routines that allow them to continue taking part in the sporting activities they enjoy in a way that fits in with their responsibilities as parents.

4 Reasons You Should Pick Up An Awning for Your Caravan

by Tommy Gordon

There are plenty of great accessories that you can pick up for your caravan, but few are as beneficial as an awning. Able to protect you from the weather without forcing you inside, caravan awnings will make a fantastic addition to your adventures.

Here are just four reasons you should strongly consider picking one up.

1. Versatile Configurations

When most people are asked to picture an awning, they simply think of a basic canopy. These can be great for keeping the rain and sun off, and they'll make an ideal addition to your caravan, but there are actually plenty of other types from which to choose. You could pick up a full awning, which will go all the way around your caravan like a tent, or a porch awning, which will extend from the entrance and be covered on all sides.

2. Provides Additional Space

Probably the most immediately obvious benefit of adding an awning to your caravan is being able to enjoy much more space. In fact, you can add awnings that will almost double your amount of usable space. You can use that added space to set up a table, or you can even sleep beneath it when the weather is warm enough. You'll also appreciate having more space if you have bikes, canoes or any other such items—you'll be able to store them away from prying eyes.

3. Lets You Stay Outside in All Weather

In an ideal world, weather conditions would be perfect whenever you head out in your caravan. In reality, you're likely to face some rain and cold. It can be very depressing to be locked up in your caravan during such periods, but an awning can help. You'll be able to sit under cover while it's raining, and you can roll down the sides to keep some of the heat in when it's cold. You'll also benefit from an awning while the sun is shining its hardest. To protect yourself from sunstroke and sunburn, just sit under the shelter, then roll up the sides to keep a nice breeze coming through.

4. Keeps Your Caravan Clean

Caravans present quite small spaces, and most caravanning trips will take you out into the great outdoors. The problem here is that it can be very hard to keep your caravan from getting dirty. With an awning, you'll be able to remove your shoes and dirty clothes before you get inside. The awning will provide privacy and help keep your items protected.
