Structural timber for building a frame house

Structural timber for the construction of a frame house is still a willingly used and popular building material. It is above all practical, and besides, cheap, light, durable and easily machined. It is used to build houses, terraces, gazebos, guest houses in the garden and all kinds of utility structures.

In addition to practical values, structural wood has a lot of aesthetic advantages, it turns a building into a rustic house or a highlander’s cottage. The wood inside and outside the house exudes natural warmth and emotional warmth.

What construction timber for frame houses?

Construction timber for frame structures must meet a number of rigorous standards. It also needs to be properly dried. There are two basic types of construction timber:

  1. construction timber glued in layers, planed four times, which is used in the first place to make the roof truss and the structure under the windows. This type of structural timber is glued together from sheets or strips of wood with waterproof glue. This methodology is characterized by high insulating properties and, which is also of great importance, it burns much slower in the event of a fire.
  2. solid wood is a material hewn from a single piece of wood, sawn twice, it is mainly used for the production of furniture.

Various grades of structural timber

Wood for frame structures is primarily ecological and energy-saving. Most often, pine is used to build houses due to its relatively light weight and physical properties. The issue of price is also significant here, pine is significantly cheaper in each version of the building material than larch or oak.

However, the tree species itself is not important in the process of choosing this natural building material. When choosing wood for the construction of a frame house, investors are guided by the consistently established class of wood, indicating its quality. The first selection group is the sorting class of the material marked as follows:

  1. KW: pick class
  2. KS: medium quality class
  3. KG: lower quality class


Most often, three types of wood are used for the construction of frame houses:

  1. Wood class C24 and C27. Both C24 and C27 structural wood are kiln dried, thanks to which they are characterized by high flexibility and durability. Grades of a lower grade should not be used for construction purposes. C24 wood is a selected material, with regulated humidity, without discoloration, cavities and defects.
  2. KVH wood is a solid wood used to construct ceilings and walls. It is made of elements that did not fit into the C24 class of wood . The building material is carefully cleaned, all cavities are leveled, and only then it is connected with wedge joints. This type of wood is as durable as C24, it is also characterized by high tightness and compatibility. However, due to its production process, it is relatively expensive.
  3. BSH is created similarly to KVH, but it is used only in important load-bearing places. This is due to the high resistance of the building material to deformation, cracks or damage.

How to join structural timber?

Joining structural timber is one of the basic construction techniques. For centuries, wooden scantlings have been joined using the tongue-and-groove or dovetail method . Some construction techniques come from the ancient Japanese carpentry school. Carpentry joints connect wooden beams permanently and reliably with the use of specially selected construction accessories.

The currently popular methods of joining construction timber are based on a pool of carpentry joints, also used in Poland. In the USA, about 80% of single-family houses are joined with carpentry joints. In our country, the proportions are slightly different, but the solutions are still effective. The most popular connectors on the Polish market include tapes, perforated plates, angle connectors, beam supports, column supports and cleats.

At the disposal of builders, there are also spiked plates (hedgehogs) used in the production of prefabricated trusses. Joints connect structural timber along the entire length of the beams and in other necessary configurations.

Construction timber price

Construction timber price list depends on its class and type. The price of C24 wood oscillates around PLN 1200-1300/m3. Relatively inexpensive components for a frame house built of this class of wood and in a raw state make it cost between PLN 150,000 and 250,000, depending on the volume. Investors more and more often decide to build a wooden house, which becomes available due to the building material and relatively short construction time. And due to its thermal insulation and energy-saving qualities, it can compete with any other material.

However, when deciding on this type of investment, it is always necessary to choose the best possible building material, even at the expense of outlays on interior equipment. The optimal use of a wooden house depends on its components. High-quality structural timber between C24 and C27 meets all technical conditions.

Frame houses – how to choose good professionals?

Frame houses – how to choose good professionals? There are many myths around the technology of building frame houses. One of the frequently repeated is the lack of skills of our native professionals. Frame houses require precision and work with other materials, therefore professionals building this type of houses must have appropriate knowledge and experience in this field. However, does this mean that no one in Poland can deal with the skeleton technology?

Problems in the construction of frame houses

At the outset, it should be noted that frame houses were developed as houses that can be built by anyone with basic building skills, the right materials and following a plan.

Frame houses do not require advanced “wet” works (except for foundations), so the only difficulty will be the correct positioning and fastening of individual construction elements. In addition, frame houses are light, so they do not require heavy equipment or specialized tools. They are also built much faster than traditional houses.

A frame house can be erected within a few weeks. In addition, any errors can be fixed much faster and easier than in the case of brick houses. It is enough to simply dismantle the troublesome element.

Assembling a frame house is a bit like laying blocks. Everything is ready, all you have to do is, following the plan, assemble the prepared elements. So where is the catch? It can be difficult to follow the plan precisely. In the case of brick houses, many elements are corrected and modified on an ongoing basis, depending on the problems encountered or changing vision, e.g. when it turns out that the connection to the sewage system must be located in a different place.

There is no such possibility in frame houses. Each change means that a given element of the structure is entirely to be thrown away. Beams are adapted to a specific layout. We can’t change it. The project must be adapted to the place where the house will stand from start to finish.

The second problem is the assembly itself. Unless it requires advanced equipment, accuracy is essential. Any gaps in the connection of boards, in insulation or other shortcomings can cause thermal bridges or expose the wood to moisture and fungus. If someone does not have a perfectionist jam, he may have a problem with the correct assembly of individual modules.

Frame houses and Polish professionals

Skeleton technology is just gaining popularity in Poland, which is why many companies still do not decide to include the possibility of assembling frame houses in their offer, because it still seems unprofitable. Other companies that build this type of houses have limited facilities, so there is not enough time to complete all orders.

Therefore, people who want to build a house in this technology may have difficulty finding the right professionals. And this may result in ordering the assembly of the house to pseudo-professionals who have no experience in building this type of house. And this is how myths about weak professionals in Poland are created.

If we plan to build a frame house, the best solution will be to choose a company that specializes in this technology, has its own architects who prepare designs or adapt the offered house plans to individual needs and cooperate with a sawmill. Thanks to this, we can order a whole frame house and not worry about materials or a plan. This is the most convenient way out, which should provide us with a professionally performed service that we will be satisfied with.

Frame houses and wood

One of the problems that contributed to the creation of a not very good opinion about frame houses in Poland were problems with obtaining the right wood.

Skeleton technology appeared in Poland in the 1990s and its beginnings were extremely difficult. First of all, there was a lack of proper wood processing and knowledge about proper thermal insulation. Therefore, many people began to believe that frame houses are uneconomical and difficult to heat.

Wood was most often imported from the Scandinavian countries, because in our domestic sawmills the method of processing for timber frame technology was not yet known. And this generated additional costs.

This has now changed. In Polish sawmills, we can order good quality wood, kiln dried and planed on four sides, which ensures the best resistance to pests and fire. At the same time, the increase in wood processing in Polish sawmills meant that in the event of a defect, we can obtain a replacement much faster.

Companies that specialize in frame technology already offer ready-made plans and materials, so we don’t have to worry about choosing a sawmill. At the same time, we now have a much larger selection of wood that will be used to build a house. At any time, we can check whether the wood has the appropriate quality certificates.

Retirement homes

Retirement homes – where to spend the end of life? In Poland, the number of elderly, sick and requiring care, usually 24 hours a day, is growing. Not everyone has family and loved ones who can provide the necessary care and companionship. Today’s youth work more than 8 hours and live in a hurry, unable to take care of their sick grandparents. Not always.

Caring for the elderly is not easy, it requires sacrifices and not everyone can afford it. Many people prefer to travel and spend time with friends rather than weak family members. In this case, a nursing home, also known as a nursing home or nursing home, is the solution. These places not only provide care for the elderly, but also accompany people of a similar age.

Nursing homes – what facilities are available for seniors?

Nursing homes vary in standards, occupancy and management styles. The two main types of care homes are state-owned and private.

State Nursing Homes – These are state-owned facilities, and their standards are often lower than those of private owners. Nursing homes are located in every city and accept people registered in the city or municipality where the nursing home is located. They recognize people who, due to their age and the lack of a close and willing family, cannot survive on their own and need constant care. Unfortunately, you have to wait months or even months to get into a state-run nursing home.

The number of applicants exceeds the centre’s capacity, so there is little immediate visibility of interested parties. The cost of accommodation in state institutions is regulated by law and is borne by him or his immediate family. The price depends on the amount of the pension and the income of family members.

The situation in state centers is completely different. Each of these centers must meet the basic needs of the residents, i.e. provide food, medical care and help in keeping clean. Seniors, depending on the resort, live in rooms for 1-4 people. Nurses and carers take care of their health, and doctors are on duty. It provides the necessary rehabilitation for the elderly, conducts group and gymnastics classes, organizes fun sessions for guests.

Private residences for seniors – such centers are sometimes very different from state institutions. They often look more like hotels than retirement homes. The downside is the high price, because you have to pay for several or even thousands of months of accommodation. Nursing homes of the highest standard offer individual rooms, well-equipped, healthy, balanced meals, constant care of doctors and nurses. As part of entertainment, seniors organize trips, concerts, fun meetings, and the center offers gyms, saunas and more.

Due to the high price, you don’t have to wait long, you usually get it a few days after choosing the center. Seniors can bring cats or dogs, which is not allowed in state resorts. There are also a few sub-standard private resorts with lower prices and good condition. Many of them are located in a quiet, green area where you can relax.

How to choose a nursing home?

Choosing a center where a loved one will spend the rest of their lives is not an easy task. It’s best to do it together, and seniors decide where to live. It is best to choose a place close to the family so that both parties can visit each other. It is important to check the conditions carefully and talk to tenants and childminders.

Sanitation is important and you should check that the facility maintains cleanliness, provides a healthy diet and medical services for the elderly. If there are any restrictions on this, is it worth visiting seniors all day long? On the Internet, you can often find reviews about a given resort, which you can read to determine the right choice. If the nursing home is private then there must be a license which is also a cause for concern.

Nursing homes – is it a good solution?

The fall of life is best spent with immediate family members who provide support, companionship and assistance in daily operations. Unfortunately, this is not always possible, in which case nursing homes are an advantageous solution.

Sometimes the old man decides to live there alone. They prefer this solution to living with families who are rarely at home. Thanks to this, they do not feel lonely, they have company and entertainment in the nursing home. Nursing homes are also a beneficial option for patients who require constant care by nurses but find it difficult to provide them with good conditions at home.

The decision to live in a care home should be made with the elderly and older people must not be sent there against their will. It is important not to forget those who live in the resort, to visit them regularly and, if possible, to invite them home for holidays or vacations.

Good gift ideas

Good gift ideas – very often, when we want to give someone a gift, be it for a birthday or other occasion, and sometimes without an occasion, we have a problem because we don’t really think about what it could be.

Then there is such a risk that we can spend money on a gift that you will not fully like, and in the worst case, will be completely missed. It is therefore good to have several options up your sleeve, which can be very flexibly adapted to almost every person.

T-shirts with print

Printed t-shirts are quite trendy these days. They can be done in almost any style. They can be more elegant, they can be funny or patriotic and the like.

People who have a hobby, and basically everyone has a hobby, very often wear T-shirts with an imprint that somehow emphasizes this interest. T-shirts can of course also be stylized differently (funny or more specific). Nevertheless, if you want to give someone a good gift, and you don’t know what exactly, then such a T-shirt with a print can be a great idea. Of course, we can choose from T-shirts that have already been designed and are available in the standard offer of various types of stores, or we can design our own T-shirt and have it made in a printing house.

There are a lot of such printing houses that provide printing services on T-shirts, in fact, it can be said that almost every printing house is able to print on textiles today. After contacting us, the printing house will certainly offer us a few variants, within which we can choose the range of services that will be provided for us.

The printing house will most often offer us several types of T-shirts, differing in material weight, color, size, as well as the printing technology. Because there are at least a few of the latter. Currently, the most popular are digital prints or offset printing. Sometimes it may happen that the printing house will agree that we provide them with a T-shirt on which the print will be made. This has the great advantage that it is very difficult to find good T-shirts on the market today. Saying good, it’s all about the quality of their workmanship.

Of course, the printing house may have good quality T-shirts, but not necessarily. That is why we should check what they actually have to offer, because it may turn out that delivering the T-shirts for printing by us personally may only be an unnecessary complication of the order.

Gift cards

Gift cards are a fairly obvious example of a gift that we can give someone if we don’t really know what to buy them. However, it is worth mentioning them, because recently there has been such a belief that it is not worth buying a gift card, because it proves that we do not necessarily know the recipient well.

Often, however, it is simply that we give a gift to someone who is actually not very well known, so logically, both for us and for the recipient, it is better to simply buy a gift card than a gift that will be poorly chosen and just unnecessary. Both we lose money and the recipient, there is no greater benefit from it.

A gift card, on the other hand, is something quite universal. We can choose from two main types of gift cards. The first one is usually a gift card intended for a specific store (stationary or online), for example a sports store or a perfume store. Of course, we can choose such a card if we know the recipient well enough to know that he is an avid amateur sportsman or, for example, is undergoing renovation and a good gift would be, for example, a gift card to a DIY store.

If we do not even have such general information about the recipient, we can simply go to the bank and get a bearer gift card, which will be topped up with any amount we choose.

Car accessories

Car accessories are certainly not the first gift idea for someone we don’t know very well, but we should think about it. The fact is that not all of us have a car and probably each of us has a greater or lesser problem with the organization of space inside the car or in its trunk.

Few people at the same time have time to plan purchases typically for the car, so organizing space takes a very long time. Therefore, a gift in the form of, for example, a trunk organizer, seat covers or a gift card for a car accessories store can be a really nice thing. Determining whether the gift will be hit can also be very simple, sometimes it is enough to look through the window into the car of a colleague from work, which is standing in the parking lot. Such a gift is both nice and practical and will probably be remembered for quite a long time by the person who received it.

Why is it worth using natural cosmetics?

Why is it worth using natural cosmetics? Skin care is especially important for every woman who would like to keep her youthful appearance for as long as possible. New products are constantly appearing on the cosmetics market, thanks to which taking care of the body becomes even easier.

Natural cosmetics are particularly popular – of course because of their unique properties. Every good cosmetics wholesaler must now have such cosmetics in its assortment. In today’s article, we explain why it is worth investing in natural cosmetics.

Natural cosmetics – what is it?

Every day, human skin is affected by a lot of harmful external factors. Of course, we have no influence on the quality of air or dust, but each of us can take care of the proper care of our own skin. Nowadays, we have so much access to various, valuable cosmetics that keeping the skin in good condition is not as difficult as it used to be. Every good cosmetics wholesaler currently offers special natural cosmetics that will not harm our skin in any way.

Products containing parabens, artificial flavors and dyes or preservatives do not have a good effect on the condition of our skin. It is much better to bet on natural cosmetics, which are produced on the basis of ingredients of mineral and plant origin. Most cosmetics wholesalers also offer natural cosmetics with essential oils, vegetable oils and extracts – all these substances occur naturally.

Sometimes natural cosmetics also contain various elements of animal origin, such as milk or beeswax. However, cosmetics wholesalers and manufacturers ensure that no animals were harmed in the process of obtaining these ingredients. Manufacturers of natural cosmetics also make every effort to ensure that the production process is always carried out in such a way that it is not harmful to the natural environment.

The vast majority of the products in question are produced using physical methods such as distillation, pressing, drying or filtration. They are included in the so-called low processing of plant material. The main goal of this method is to preserve all nutritional and care values.

Natural cosmetics – why is it worth it?

There are no artificial substances in natural cosmetics. This, in turn, means that our skin absorbs them much better than other cosmetics available on the market. At the same time, it should be noted that this is not only a matter of chemistry in classic cosmetics.

Each cosmetic product that goes to a drugstore or cosmetics wholesaler must be tested in a specialized laboratory. All cosmetics manufactured in the European Union and sold in the Member States must comply with highly stringent European standards.

A lot of research conducted by experienced scientists from around the world proves, however, that substances of natural origin are much better tolerated by the human body. Synthetic equivalents are much more likely to cause allergic reactions in the body.

People with sensitive skin and allergy sufferers are most exposed to artificial fragrances, SLS and artificial dyes. At the same time, it should be noted that natural cosmetics do not have an irritating effect, and allergy sufferers only need to pay attention to whether there are any natural allergens in natural cosmetics that can cause allergic reactions.

Who should bet on cosmetics of natural origin?

All experts and dermatologists recommend the use of natural cosmetics to all those who have sensitive skin and it is prone to irritation. Natural cosmetics are perfect for acne, oily, mixed, couperose and dry skin.

The vast majority of natural cosmetics are also fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. They should not cause any allergies, but you must remember that selected natural cosmetics contain herbs or essential oils that are allergens.

If someone has a confirmed allergy to substances contained in a given natural cosmetic, under no circumstances should they reach for it. Careful reading of the composition of the cosmetic should then be an absolute priority.

Natural cosmetics are universal

All members of our family can use natural cosmetics. There is no need to buy natural cosmetics for people with sensitive skin and other synthetic cosmetics separately.

It is also worth knowing that a lot of natural cosmetics are designed to care for all skin types, so they will work really well. In addition, natural cosmetics can also often be used to care for various parts of the body. An example of such a cosmetic is the extremely popular coconut oil.

What is reservoir geology?

What is reservoir geology? Reservoir geology belongs to the geological sciences and deals with the study of the natural accumulation of solid, liquid or gaseous raw materials (resources) in the earth’s crust that can be used for economic or industrial purposes.

The task of this field is to provide industrial structures with information about the sources of raw materials. For this reason, reservoir geology terminology is often used synonymously with economic geology. As a branch of applied geology, reservoir science is also responsible for a wide range of services during the exploitation of raw materials.

Reservoir geology as a science

The purpose of deposit geology research is to learn the origin and location of ore deposits and minerals associated with the deposits. This includes the allocation of resources, the costs and benefits of reclaiming them, and assessing the value and availability of materials. The raw materials studied include ore (rocks or minerals with economic value) as well as fossil fuels ranging from oil to coal.

Although metals, minerals and other geological resources are non-renewable, the permanent reserves of most mineral resources are enormous. An example is copper. At the current rate of depletion, this resource will be completely depleted in over 100 million years. Nevertheless, geologists continue to successfully develop and define known mineral resources.

The impression of a fixed or limited scarcity paradigm has always led to an abundance of innovation. Demand for metals and other natural resources is increasing, and in some cases demand has already exceeded supply. The discovery of new deposits or the exploitation of known lower-grade ores can offer new solutions, but their implementation is not always straightforward given political constraints and the complexity of international trade. Therefore, the efficiency of the actions taken, which results from the use of reservoir geology, is important here.

The concept of economic geology as such is relatively new, even though humans have extracted valuable metals and minerals from the earth since prehistoric times. However, for all its ability to appreciate the value of these resources, humanity in previous eras had little knowledge of the scientific theories regarding their formation or how to extract them.

Exploration and evaluation of deposits

An important field of operation of the theory of reservoir geology is the exploration of potentially mining areas as well as the development and exploration of discovered deposits. This requires careful field sampling, mainly by boreholes. The purpose of this work is to determine the exact location of the deposit, as well as to calculate the reserves. In this context, deposit science is often referred to as mining geology.

Resource classification

Often, an area is classified by the most economically significant component, such as gold or uranium deposits, from a reservoir geology point of view. On the other hand, deposit science methods go far beyond the immediate and practical needs of the resource industry and overlap with the scientific disciplines of structural geology, geochemistry, geophysics, mineralogy, petrography and, in the case of biogenic deposits, paleontology. The aim of these studies is the systematics of deposits, which is not only economically, but also scientifically justified.

Types of mining resources

Different types of economic resources require different research methods and require different management models. Therefore, mining resources are divided into three main groups:

Metallic minerals

Among the most important metal deposits are gold, platinum, iron, nickel, copper, aluminum, chromium, selenium, vanadium, lead, uranium, etc. These minerals have an intermediate value and are traded in goods, i.e. their origin does not play a dominant role.

Industrial or non-metallic minerals

These materials tend to be of low value and high volume, so they are usually mined close to or at the source of production. Within non-metallic or industrial deposits, there are mainly deposits of materials used on a daily basis in modern economy, such as: stone, carbonates (limestone, dolomite), salts, sulphides, magnesite, gypsum, talc, fluorite, asbestos, gravel and sand, marble , granite, clay, etc.

Precious and semi-precious stones

In the deposits of precious stones we find diamond, emerald, ruby ​​and sapphire. Semi-precious stones include lapis lazuli, agate, garnet (mineral), jasper, jade, zircon, opal, tourmaline, etc. The importance and value of a gem depends on the quality of the stone, its purity and origin. These types of deposits tend to be of medium size and high value, but their production depends on global economic conditions and therefore their price is volatile.

Water resources

In recent years, more attention has been paid to water as a non-renewable resource that is necessary for every aspect of human activity. The science dealing with the study of water resources is hydrogeology, but geology, and especially deposit geology, is of great importance in the study of waters present in the aquifers of a given area.

What kills ozonation?

What kills ozonation? Ozone, sometimes also called active oxygen, has become a very popular agent used to disinfect rooms nowadays. It is especially liked because when used in interiors, it makes them fresh and, above all, safe. Why is this happening? How does ozonation actually work and what does it kill?

How does ozonation work?

Ozonization of rooms consists in spraying a mist composed of very fine drops of ozone inside them. Thanks to this, the ozone floating in the air penetrates into all corners of the refreshed rooms.

The air subjected to ozonation resembles the atmosphere that we can feel right after a storm. It is ozone that is responsible for the refreshing, clean air that the lightning discharges accompanying the storm leave behind, and ozonation makes us feel it also indoors.

What kills ozonation?

Ozonation primarily kills:

  • Bacteria,
  • viruses,
  • mold and mushrooms,
  • Unpleasant smells.

In addition, it repels pests such as mice or rats, cockroaches, ants, moths and mosquitoes, so it can be used to combat the invasion of these creatures.

Above all, however, ozone removes all pathogenic bacteria from the air and surfaces. It easily deals with both Salmonella and E. Coli. Its effect of deactivating virus particles is also confirmed. It will therefore work especially well for disinfecting rooms where there are often a lot of people, and therefore there is a high risk of infection with influenza virus or coronavirus. Ozonation is also recommended for disinfection of rooms after the end of quarantine after COVID-19.

Ozonation mercilessly deals with all fungi and molds, which is why it is recommended primarily for fumigation of ventilation and air conditioning. In these systems, microorganisms that are dangerous to health accumulate and develop over time, causing recurrent diseases in people staying in rooms ventilated with their help. Ozonation removes all pathogens, making ventilation safe again.

Ozonation also breaks down airborne odors. It will easily deal not only with cigarette smoke, but also with other troublesome odors, such as the smell of solvents or paints, and even mustiness. Ozone differs from other deodorizers in that it does not mask, but permanently removes unpleasant odors.

Ozonation can be used virtually anywhere and in any place helps to restore safety and cleanliness to the rooms.

It is willingly used in hospitals and clinics, but also in hotels, offices, production halls and shopping centers, schools, nurseries and kindergartens, and even in private apartments.

Due to the fact that it kills mold, fungi and unpleasant odors, ozonation will also work great in places that for some reason have been neglected for a long time. Ozonation will help get rid of microorganisms harmful to health and restore the original freshness of the spaces.

Due to its health-promoting properties, ozonation is also a frequently chosen way to clean rooms before expanding the family with a child, as well as to refresh rooms where people who are chronically ill or suffering from ailments related to reduced immunity are staying.

Ozonation is a special ally of people struggling with asthma and allergies to dust mites or animal hair. It helps to get rid of irritating odors, microorganisms such as molds and fungi and allergens from the air, restoring breathing comfort.
Removing unpleasant odors is an action that makes ozonation a very popular way to restore freshness to rooms where there is a persistent, difficult to remove odor. It works especially well for removing odor from spaces soaked with cigarette smoke.

Outside the rooms, ozonation is also used to restore the freshness of car interiors. Due to the fact that ozone penetrates very deeply into all crevices and materials, it easily deals with odors, mites and bacteria nested in the upholstery.

Is ozonation safe?

Ozone has many advantages. However, is ozonation really safe? It turns out that yes. Ozone is very unstable and has aseptic properties, therefore, when used correctly, it does not pose a threat to humans and animals. It is biodegradable, so it breaks down to pure oxygen after the job is done.

The problem only arises when used incorrectly. As a result of exceptionally high or long exposure of the body to ozone, poisoning may occur, therefore ozonation is carried out in empty rooms.

People should not stay in the disinfected rooms during ozonation, animals should also be taken out and plants and objects that could be destroyed by excessive oxidation should be removed. For similar reasons, ozonation should not be carried out more often than once every three months.

Ozonation is therefore a very safe, environmentally friendly way to obtain fresh, fragrant rooms and free from any pathogenic microorganisms.

What you should know about the diet

What is worth knowing about diet – we are more and more aware of the importance of taking care of ourselves, diet and physical activity. We want our meals to be tailored to the needs of our body. That is why we attach great importance to what is on our plate. It’s time to go shopping and we wonder what to put in the basket.

It is always best to choose fresh, unprocessed and nutritious. It is worth considering how many vegetables and fruits we have in our diet. Thanks to them, our metabolism works properly and we are in great shape.

Balanced diet

Sometimes we don’t have time to prepare meals because we are very busy or we just don’t like spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Dietary catering is worth considering if you care about quality but don’t feel like cooking. It’s a solution that brings benefits. Thanks to this, we eat on time every day. It is delivered to our home or office at a fixed time so we can enjoy a hot meal with many nutritional benefits. It’s also a different dish every day.

When we cook at home, we fall into a routine. We often buy similar products because we are just used to certain dishes, we usually lack the creativity to invent new dishes, it’s more about shopping and it takes us a lot of time. It is worth considering what kind of life we ​​live. Sometimes it turns out that making small changes can take our lifestyle to the next level.

Make sure you drink enough fluids every day. This will affect the proper level of hydration of our body. People who drink too little may experience weakness, headaches and other ailments.

So before we start looking for what makes us feel worse, it’s worth considering how much fluid we drink. Diet is a great way to introduce positive habits into your lifestyle.


In addition to this valuable meal, it is worth remembering the importance of breakfast. Some people often eat oatmeal for breakfast, which is a regular part of carbohydrates, and some people eat eggs, which is also a good habit. However, sometimes during the day we may crave unhealthy snacks.

Maybe we lack energy and crave something sweet. A good solution is to keep dried fruit or dark chocolate in a desk drawer. It is a healthy alternative to store sweets. Another good way is to drink freshly squeezed juice. If you don’t have time to do it yourself, ask your caterer if they offer fruit juices rich in vitamins and minerals.

It is worth drinking a lot of water. It removes toxins from our body, but we must know that water does not really hydrate us like juice or soup. Water is mainly used to purify and flush out substances harmful to the body. It pays to choose dietary meals tailored to our needs. The point is that the meals we ate tasted good and were varied.

The company we choose is very important. It is worth knowing the detailed offer, and if we have any doubts, it is best to agree everything on the spot. Most often, meals will reach us at a certain time and we will be able to enjoy the deliciousness of fresh products.

Diet for weight loss – convenient and healthy

Weight loss meals are a great way to enjoy more time and a great figure. Everyone has different eating habits, which is why the psychology of eating is becoming more and more known, which means that we have strong eating habits that come from our way of thinking. They are closely related to our self-esteem.

Some people use food as a form of comfort, so when something is not going well, they reach for it immediately. The same applies to dealing with severe stress. Having healthy habits related to diet pays off, because it translates into our overall condition. Most of us understand the importance of eating less, but we all ate too much at lunchtime. During this time it was difficult to fall asleep and sleep soundly. Food in a box is a solution for many people, especially those who are so busy during the day that they forget to eat a valuable meal.

The fasting diet somehow forces you to eat food that is already prepared. Usually, these are not high costs, so it is worth choosing this convenient solution. Some claim that thanks to the box diet they managed to lose a few kilos. This is one of the smarter diets that does not exclude certain foods. Some diets are low in calories and may not be beneficial in the long run. Many slimming diets also cause the yo-yo effect.

What leads to addiction?

What leads to addiction? The center of psychotherapy and addiction treatment is a place that cannot complain about the lack of patients. No wonder, because addiction is unfortunately a very common and burdensome problem. They affect people of all ages, regardless of gender.

You can become addicted to many things, not just psychoactive substances. It is worth knowing the most common causes of addiction, because then we may be able to avoid them. In addition, it would be good to learn to recognize the symptoms of addiction. It will also be advisable to learn about addiction treatment methods. It should also be borne in mind that the sooner we start therapy, the better chance we have for its success.

Learn about the most common causes of addiction

Before we start finding out what good addiction treatment centers are, it is worth considering whether we have a problem at all. It would also be good to know the factors predisposing to the development of addiction. As we all know, it is much easier to prevent than to treat.

Of course, you have to keep in mind that every case is different. In addition, it is worth remembering that usually more than one factor affects whether someone will be addicted or not. As a rule, factors predisposing to the development of addictions are divided into: biological, social, genetic and psychological. Environmental factors also play a role. Whether or not we become addicted depends on the environment in which we grew up.

Unfortunately, a child raised in a pathological family among addicts may have a similar problem as his or her relatives. However, this is not the rule. Unhappy love, physical and mental violence, as well as lack of friends can also make us more willing to use drugs.

In addition, addiction is often determined by the desire to impress friends or acquaintances. Occasional drug use very often ends in addiction and it is worth keeping this in mind.

What are addictions and what can you become addicted to?

A closed addiction treatment center is a place where people who help addicts work. However, it would be best to avoid addiction. Keep in mind that you can become addicted to many different things.

It is also worth being aware that there is a difference between psychological and physical dependence. When it comes to psychological dependence, it consists in a mental compulsion to take certain substances or perform certain activities. When it comes to physical addiction, it consists in experiencing a series of unpleasant symptoms from the body that force us to take a certain substance.

Sometimes psychological and physical addiction overlap. What can you become addicted to? In fact, from everything, although this is a very imprecise term. The most common, however, are addictions to psychoactive substances such as marijuana, heroin, cocaine or amphetamines. It is impossible not to mention alcohol addiction.

Sex addiction is also quite common. You can also become addicted to gambling, which is very dangerous. The most important thing is to recognize the symptoms of addiction in time and start fighting it. If we spend most of our time playing games or gambling and our family relationships suffer, there is a high probability of addiction.

Addicts very often lose their wealth on drugs or games. In extreme cases, it can even lead to the loss of important relationships, both private and professional. If you lose your job, you may lose your livelihood. Then he may resort to theft or violence.

How are addictions treated?

A closed facility for addicts is not the only place where addictions are treated. However, it is a place where it is worth treating addictions that give extremely serious symptoms. So if you suffer from heroin or alcohol addiction, a closed center can be a very good choice.

It is impossible not to notice that in a closed center we will have to go through detox. It is an extremely unpleasant stage of recovery from addiction, but you have to go through it. Without this, the next stages of therapy will be impossible. It is important to choose a good rehab center. You can use both state and private centers.

The choice of a resort depends not only on our preferences. It should be borne in mind that staying in private centers usually generates quite high costs. As far as state centers are concerned, they tend to be overcrowded. So you will have to wait for a place in them. An outpatient psychotherapy center can be an alternative to inpatient treatment. However, it is not intended for everyone.

However, it is worth consulting with specialists working in such a center. If necessary, they will direct us to a closed facility. Addiction treatment requires patience and self-denial.
