Parents are unquestionably the most important persons in our lives. They give us birth, they raise us and take care of us while we are young. They educate us, take us to vacations and trips around the world. But the most significant of all, they give us their endless support. Whatever problem we might face, our parents are the first to arrive and give us a hand. In their eyes, we actually never grew up and we will always be their children. That is why we need to give them our attention as much as we can. However, we might even buy them presents occasionally, just to remind them how important they are to us. The first question that pops-up is: What should we buy as a present to our parents? Well, one needs to know his parents well in order to have an answer to this question. But, we are here to remind You that parents do not look for material things. They will be more thrilled with presents that will remind them of how great family you are or how you have spent most precious moments together as a family. That is why we present You our suggestions when it comes to unique gifts for parents.

Family Portrait

Portrait of a happy and unique family is something that will decorate any home. But what is more, Your parents will be happy to have it. And if it is a gift from their children, then it would be the best present ever. There are street artists in every place that can paint a perfect family portrait. Moreover, they are not as expensive as gallery artists. Thus a family portrait could be affordable for everyone. Family portrait can be made by simply choosing one of the family photos and by showing it to the artist. They will know how to make it look like all the family were present and posing for the portrait. Plus, such a gift will be a huge surprise for Your parents.

Family Photo Poster

If You are not able to find an artist for a family portrait or Your parents are not fans of art, then You should make a family photo poster. Namely, You need to choose dozens of family photos from all periods of Your lives, then copy them and make a wall poster that will definitely be unique and entertaining for everyone. Just by looking at it on the wall, one can remember all the beautiful moments spent together with his family: birthdays, family trips, Thanksgiving parties, New Years, Christmas and so on. Your parents will then know the true value of the moments and all their efforts they invested in You.

Children and Parents Letter Book Set

This can be a very nice present. The set contains several dozens of empty cards and envelopes that are ready to be used. All You need to do is to write letters to your parents and put them in the envelopes (You might even write the dates on the envelope so that Your parents know when to open them.) Children and Parents Letter Book Set is an excellent way for all those who live far from their parents and who do not see their parents for a long time. This way their parents are able to open the Letter Book and to take one of the letters and read them. They will remind them of how important they are in your life, even though you cannot visit them that often.

My Life Story- So Far

If you yearn for a unique present, then My Life Story-So Far is an excellent choice. Namely, this is a book that has not yet been written. It contains 9 chapters that need to be filled and they represent different time periods from a child’s life. It begins with „The Early Years“ and continues with interesting titles thus creating a kind of a journal with personal memoir that captures everything. In this journal, Your parents will be able to write about your early days, first spoken words, first friends, first days, school problems and so on. They can even glue some photos in it. This way your parents will have a feeling that they are spending time with you in moments when you are unable to visit them.

Family Pillows

Pillows with pictures of family members are a very unique present. All you have to do is to choose interesting photos of your family members and find a company that will print them on the pillows. Thus, every family member will have his own pillow in the house, but what is more the pillows will remind your parents that they have a lovely family.

There are many, many other unique presents for your parents. All one needs to do is to be creative and to give presents that will create warm feelings and that will remind parents of your love towards your family.

top-social-media-marketing

Social media are today inevitable part of marketing or running a business. One does not have to be a genius to realize that it is all about how well our product is represented on social media and how good is our marketing. Many times we have heard a saying: „It is an advertisement in first place that sells a product.“ That is why we need to be aware of the importance social media play in our business life. However, social media have their own marketing trends that change over time. Therefore we could say that every year has its own marketing trends in social media that are a kind of dominating. And so does the year 2014. For this reason we are obliged to represent top seven social media marketing trends in 2014. Let us take a brief look at them:

  • Social media are extremely important and worth the investment

Business owners are aware of the fact that their business is not going to expand with just ordinary and we might even say outdated way of advertising. It is estimated that in 2014 about 90% business owners used social media as a way for gaining influence and having improvements in their work. However, there is one problem. Namely, companies deal with the fact that their employees lack education and training in social media. This, of course, makes it more difficult when it comes to dealing with everyday social media tasks.

  • Some sites were taking the lead thus becoming major factors when it comes to marketing

In past years Facebook and Twitter were among the top social media that business owners used and invested in. However, times have changed and today we are being witnesses of a ‘site-shift’ in which Google+ took their place. More than a half of marketers in 2014 were using Google+ and their platform. Nevertheless, marketers are also concerned about problems within the company, so that the future of Google+ is still unclear. Yet, marketers do not give up on advertizing there.

  • Photo-sharing sites were witnessing great success

Most of us know about these sites which are concentrated on only sharing photos and aiming at visually appealing products. Such media are: Instagram, Pinterest or Snapchat. They are all relatively new and they cannot be a serious competition for the most famous sites like Facebook or Twitter. However, they continue to record success and that will eventually bring them closer to their goals – to become a decent competitors.

  • The use of Micro-videos records increase

The year 2014 will be remembered for short videos shared on social media. Such short videos have straight message and they are focused directly to the target audience. Sites such as Vine or Instagram are not unknown to us and for a reason we can say that they were dominating 2014 with these short videos that were carrying direct message to the audience.

  • Some sites are considered to decline sharply

Early in 2014, some of the sites were predicted to record downfalls. However, their personnel did their best and they managed to stay in life even today by developing new and improved app. Such a site is Foursquare. They managed to launch Swarm – an app which will allow users to find friends through neighbourhood sharing, and there is no need to check-in. Thus it remains to be seen whether they will continue to decline in 2015.

  • Some sites were still ‘hanging in there’

For instance, MySpace has not recorded great success in 2014, but it rather remains in the same position as in 2013. In order to stimulate their users to be more active on this site, MySpace has sent emails to their users reminding them that their photos are still on the site. We truly hope that such an effort will pay off and that MySpace will witness a significant increase in the number of their users.

  • LinkedIn witnessed a major growth

When speaking of B2B set, then we need to state that LinkedIn is a primary network for business. According to the research, this site overpasses even Facebook and Twitter for B2B marketers with 33% of marketers who decided to use it.

In the end, we must conclude that 2014 has brought some surprising data to us. There are growth in using photo-sharing sites, micro-videos or B2B sets while at the same time those sites which have not changed anything on their platforms witnessed decline. It remains to be seen how these trends will continue in 2015. We will definitely track the events that are to come.

The best thing about bodyweight training exercises would be that you can perform them anywhere. Seriously. Whether you’re on the train, at the park or in the comforts of your own room, as long as you have enough space to move around, bodyweight exercises are convenient and quite easy. How is this possible? Figuring it out from the name itself, bodyweight exercises only require people to exercise by carrying their own weight. That’s right. There’s no need for any other equipment, no need for plates, barbells, nor dumbbells.

The most common bodyweight training exercises are actually those that target the core. And in fact, there is a very few machines that can do help workout the core muscles. The 5 best bodyweight training exercises to sculpt this group of muscles would be the following: Plank, Side Plank, The Basic Push Up, Squats, and the Oblique Twist.

exercises-using-bodyweight

To do the plank, the person starts off with only his forearm and his toes touching the ground. In this position, the arms are bent at a right angle from the elbow and the toes are curled upward as if in the tiptoe position although in this case, the body is not propped vertically but propped in the prone position. The goal is to hold this position for about 30 to 60 seconds while keeping the torso straight and rigid. When done correctly, tension will be felt in the greater abdominal area.

The next core exercise, which only requires bodyweight is the side plank. In this routine, it is one arm that props up the body and one hand forms a right angle with the ground. The other arm is raised to help keep the balance and avoid falling forward or backward. Similar to the plank, the goal is also to keep the body straight (also take a look at this diet program) and rigid while holding the position for about 30 to 60 seconds. The benefit of this routine is in helping to strengthen the hips.

And there’s the basic push-up. Think of this position as a combination of the starting positions for the plank and the side plank. With the body facing the ground and the arms propping up the body with the hands on as base on the ground, the person tries to balance himself while also getting support from the toes that likewise serve as base. The goal here is to be able to lower one’s body, by bending the arms at the elbows and finishing in the position where the arms are bent 90 degrees. Depending on how many the person can do, this will be the number of repetitions that the person will try to lower himself via the described motion.

The oblique twists that require the person to assume a seated position where the body forms a letter “v”. Slightly reclining with the feet possible resting on the ground, the goal is to keep one’s balance while twisting at the torso from one side to another. This routine helps to strengthen the oblique abdominal muscles

If you’re still a beginners, please watch the tutorial video below:

Finally, there is the squat. This is actually a multi-joint movement routine that targets different muscle groups from the legs, the back and the core. The basic movement of this goal is almost similar to sitting down. Not only is this exercise convenient, but it is also efficient. By doing this routine, different muscle groups are worked out with just one routine.

And these are the 5 best bodyweight training exercises for developing the strength of the abs muscles.
