Why you should buy medical insurance


Medical insurance is essential and should be taken seriously, especially now that the affordability of health keeps deteriorating every year. In today’s post, we will take a look at why insurance is necessary, and why you should get covered as soon as possible.

How medical insurance works

It might come as a surprise that many people are not aware of how health cover works if you are among those that don’t know, worry not, here is an explanation.

First, you have to understand, that people don’t fall ill very often, and this is the reality that allows the medical cover to be provided in the first place. Say for instance, and insurance company covers ten thousand customers, and each of these clients pays $100 per year to be insured.

Given that we rarely fall ill, it becomes straightforward for the company to cover the bills when any of their clients fall ill, some might even not fall ill within that year. Given the dynamics of health, the company can use the funds they have to pay for an amount larger than what you used to subscribe. For $100 you might get a cover that will pay for medication that covers for up to $2000.

Why should you buy medical insurance?

To live the happiest life, then you must do all it takes to achieve your health. Apart from leading a health friendly lifestyle, you need to ensure that you get quality treatment when you fall ill. If you are insured, then you will be able to pay the medical bills and secure your health.

Setting up a home gym


Without proper fitness, then it is almost impossible to maintain health and live comfortably. To live happily, have a better social life, and foster your health, it is necessary to spend some time working out and burning some excess calories.

For convenience, it is best that you set up a minimal home gym, especially if you live far away from a gym. By establishing a home gym, it becomes possible to exercise for longer periods and at moments that are suitable. Here are some of the benefits of a home gym.

The benefits of a home gym

One time investment


Rather than pay a monthly fee to a gym, with a home gym you get to own it for as long as the equipment you buy is working. This method of one-time investment is better especially in the long run compared to making periodic payments. Instead, the periodic payments can be used to further stock your home gym.



A home gym will always be convenient to you. If you are late from work, you can still work out at night without worrying that you will be late away from home. You can also enjoy your convenience since you won’t have to share work out equipment, which helps you save some time and work out efficiently.


Unlike public gyms, a home gym provides you with privacy, something that might prove to be very important. While working out, you might want to check your progress by maybe taking off your shirt and flexing, or just boost your confidence in trying our new exercises because no one is looking. All in all, privacy will always come in handy.


With a home gym, you don’t have to follow gym rules, which sometimes can be very annoying. In some gyms, you might find some exercise is banned, or a given dress code is set for all the gym members.

Starter pack for a home gym

Here is what you need to start your home gym.

The Corner

Welcome to my corner, the section of my site dedicated to getting my voice heard.If you have made it here, I’d like to personally thank you and once again welcome you. Browse around, sign my guestbook, link back to me- make me a happy Webmistress.The idea for “Our Own Destiny” came to me when I tried to find a common denominator between my three favorite shows- “Buffy”, “Angel” and “Roswell”. All of the sudden, it came to me – Destiny. Angel, destined to be a champion, Buffy destined to be the Slayer, and Max, Isabel, Michael and Tess destined to be leaders.Yet none of these characters fully accepted their roles- they all rose above and created their own destines.Truly, the largest factor in the idea for this site was the “Roswell” episode, “End of the World” (a classic episode which all- “Roswell” fan or not- should see). When Future Max Evans told a heartbroken Liz Parker that we create our own destinies, no idea seemed more appealing.I’ve been working hard on this site for many (practically) sleepless nights and I hope you enjoy your “stay” here.In the future, this page will be used as a virtual “soapbox”. You may find episode or season reviews, on topic rants or even the occasional public service announcement.In this first week, I would simply like to use this space to thank all those who made this site possible in their own little (or not so little) ways.First of all, thanks to Rock the Rock Creations who did the HTML for the splash and index page. Tables make my head hurt, so thanks!Thank you to Prophecy who designed the main image on the index page. It’s a beaut. Thanks!Thanks to Caro and SWMF for teaching me HTML in the first place oh so many months ago. Without you guys, this site wouldn’t exist and I’d probably be getting a decent amount of sleep! (Wait a minute…)To everyone in #rileyfinn on MIRC/Squidge for putting up with my endless late night sessions and occasional Glory-morphs.And especially to my best friend Jodi– I just couldn’t do this (or anything) without you.Enjoy the site guys…and come back often!
