Girls, Don’t Miss This Scuba Diving for Beginners Tips!

Males account for roughly 70% of all PADI certification holders. This is precisely why we need more females in this sport.

Scuba Diving for Beginners – Getting Certified

Scuba Diving for Beginners - Getting Certified

Getting certified as a diver, on the other hand, is both harder and easier than it seems. The most-recognised scuba diving certification in the world is PADI Open Water, and more than 900,000 new divers get certified each year. Once you become certified, you will be able to explore the underwater to the fullest. You can book a boat dives, rent dive equipment, and dive on your own with a buddy. Without certification, you will always need to be accompanied by a PADI professional and cannot dive in most sites. So, definitely do your certification if you want to start being scuba diving beginners. 

How’s The Certification Look Like 

The entire course for scuba diving for beginners certification will take anywhere from 4 to 7 days, depending on how rigorous you want it to be. The exam consists of both a practical and theoretical component. Padi Open Water Certification consists of five skill practice sessions in enclosed water (or a pool), four open water dives, and theory. We highly advise you to begin learning through an eLearning platform prior to your diving trip so that you can focus solely on the practical aspects of your certifications.

Being Scuba Diving Beginners for Girls: 

It’s not easy being a woman. Especially in an industry that has been dominated by men until recently. Here’s some scuba knowledge to pass on to you!

Dealing with Your Hair

Dealing with Your Hair

Many of you who have long, luscious locks have undoubtedly had the dreadful experience of having your hair caught in your mask strap. It clings to your wetsuit’s velcro and even gets caught in the tank valve! Each is, without a doubt, an unpleasant experience. The most advantageous position is to tie it together! Either at the very top of your head or at the very bottom of your scull. This way, you can quickly remove and replace your mask strap without it getting in the way. A braid or a tight bun would do the trick.

Dealing with Your Period

The most common questions among girls in scuba diving beginners groups are “Can I still dive if I’m on my period?” you may wonder. “Am I in danger of being attacked by a shark?”

The short answer is no, you are not in danger of being attacked by a shark. But, more importantly, how do you cope with it and stay relaxed on the boat?

A menstrual cup is an excellent choice for scuba diving women (and possibly non-scuba women). It is the most “spill-free” way of stemming your flow, not just because it reduces the emissions on the planet. I’ve been using one for 5 years and swear by it. They range in price from $30 to $60 depending on the brand, and they last a long time. They’re easy to clean and so soft that you hardly notice they’re made of silicon. They’re easy to clean and so soft that you hardly notice they’re made of silicon. Using one has a small learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, it’s fantastic. Plus, you shouldn’t have to refresh it more than once a day. You will unwind before you get off the boat and into the privacy of your own bathroom.

Caring for Your Skin and Nails

When you have progressed from beginner to becoming a regular diver, you’ll note the wear and tear on your body easily. Perfect nails become a thing of the past, and the sun and salt wreak havoc on your skin. My nails break often, and my skin becomes brittle as a result of constant sunburn. Coconut oil is excellent for all of these issues, particularly dry skin and nails. Simply rub it in before and after diving to see the results. New aloe vera is the perfect remedy for sunburn.

Common Mistakes When Creating Logo For Your Brand

Logo is a powerful element for your brand and business. It can be the one your customer remember the most about your brand. It is more than just symbol and color because your logo says a lot about what you have to offer. Logo is like an identity for your brand and company. It is the direct image of your product. Hence, making logo needs careful plan. 

Best logo to make in 2021

If you are just starting your business this year and in the process of making logo, make sure to do it carefully. Here are some tips for you to make impactful logo for your brand and business in 2021:

Avoid color that are too bright and bold. These types of colors have been a hit for some brands in the previous year. What made it interesting was because of its tendency to standout compared to the muted ones. However, too bright and bold colors are not always pleasant to the eyes. They can appear too harsh and make those who see feel overwhelmed. If people fee disturbed by the colors, they will easily turn their heads away. Choose colors that won’t overtake the message of your logo. 

Choose thicker lines in your logo design. For some people, it is interesting to look at thin lines especially for those who love minimalism. However, it can be problematic for your logo because it will be difficult to scale down with the thin lines. Hence, it is more recommended to opt for the thicker lines instead. 

Too stylized typography is a no for logo making in 2021. of course, using unique, interesting font can attract people. Font can also reflect your creativity in delivering powerful statement. However, make sure to choose understandable typography. Avoid the ones with too much hoops and twists. Be careful when choosing fonts because some of the style can be bothersome to the eyes. It is safe to stick to simplistic typography that can speak for itself even without confusing curves or twists. The font style should not overtake the message anyway.

Be mindful when choosing between symmetry or asymmetry. Logos that are crooked, misaligned, or ill-balanced won’t do good for your brand. It will be harder to recognize. When the layout is asymmetrical, the higher the risk of the message to to be lost. The layout or design can distract the true message. Complicated logo seems not to be the best choice for this year so you can stick to the symmetrical layout instead. 

Another element to consider when making logo for your brand is the arc. Many logos of popular brand play with the arc. They either use arc over or under the text. This approach might be successful for particular brands such as Amazon because it goes well with the concept. However, it might not be the same when you apply it to your own brand. So it is best to not follow the trend and do things by the book to catch your potential customers’ attention.

Every player was at risk of having an impact mark, but even the body injured there was no grudge between the players.

Teamwork comes from the effort of every member in the team. If there is someone who is lagging then it can affect the overall flow in the team. Underperformance is frustrating thing in business because it can cause project to drag out well. However, it is not right to blame everything on the underperformer. The best thing to do is help your struggling workers without hurting their feelings.

If you find your employees being underperform lately, it is time for you to help them and find the best solution for all.

It is essential to find the root of the problem first thing first. There are two common factors of underperformance. They are lack of skill and lack of motivation.

They are probably currently struggling with personal struggles at the time. Or, it is also possible that they are just being unaware of your managerial expectations. Finding the root of the problems is crucial before taking any actions. 

Set clear expectation

Make sure that your expectation is clear so your team members know what the objectives they have to achieve. It is possible for your employees to have no idea of what is expected of them. This may look harmless but it can lead to misalignment. Hence, be clear with your company expectations by having an open-door policy. Set SMART goals to ensure everyone is on the same page.

Give feedback

Do not be hesitant in giving feedback when you notice one of your team members is on the verge of underperformance territory. You can collect information first about their latest tasks and what mistakes they did. If their mistakes impact the team in general, take note of it. Then, conduct a personal meeting with the struggling employee. Explain what is not working and discuss everything in calm manner and make sure you are on the same page. Then, give them specific goals to achieved with specific deadline to meet and monitor their progress. 

Give recognition to team who deserves

Do not hesitate to give recognition for a job well done and don’t be stingy with praise. Recognition and praise are form of appreciation.
