Keep the stove top clean by applying a thin layer of car wax, then wipe it off. It keeps food from sticking. Anything that sticks easily wipes away with a magic eraser!
This one came from Shape Magazine- To remove stains from nails after wearing a dark polish, scrub nails with a whitening toothpaste and a nail brush.
You can only tell everybody you work with about your sleepless nights, your headache, and other self-handicapping excuses for so long, before everybody just starts putting your skills and competency at the level you’ve set with your frequent tales of woe. If you really do end up staying up all night due to the neighbors’ alarm, try to get someone else to deliver your rough condition for you—a co-worker, a spouse, anybody except you, the person who’s always got an “If I didn’t” story.

Life is a characteristic that distinguishes objects that have signaling and self-sustaining processes from those that do not, either because such functions have ceased, or else because they lack such functions and are classified as inanimate. Wikipedia

On his late-night TV show, David Letterman often presents his popular “Top Ten” lists. I find them enjoyable and entertaining. My charge is to write about health topics, and it’s not so easy to make them entertaining. I guess I can only hope to be informative and useful.
In that spirit, and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I offer my “Top 10 Tips for a Healthy Heart.”
10. Eat more fish and fiber rich foods like whole grains and legumes.
9. Eat less salt, sugar and fat.
8. Take medicine as prescribed. Keep them organized in a pillbox.
7. Get your blood pressure checked at least once a month.
6. Incorporate exercise into every day. Regular exercise will decrease your blood pressure and help you achieve or maintain a healthy weight.
5. Watch what you drink. Avoid diet sodas and caffeine. Limit daily alcohol to one drink for women, two for men. Water is still the best beverage choice.
4. Manage stress. We all have stress in our lives from one source or another, and scheduling some fun or relaxation around it will stop it from taking over.
3. Laugh a lot. According to research from the University of North Carolina, when you watch a comedy show or just laugh, your arteries expand with 22 percent more blood flow.
2. Fill half your plate with vegetables and fruits. The more colorful, the better. Visit choosemyplate.gov for more information about this recommendation.
1.Think positive. Research suggests that positive emotions such as optimism are associated with lowered production of the stress hormone cortisol, better immune function and reduced risk of chronic diseases. Make a resolution to view the cup as half full instead of half empty. This comes naturally to optimists, but it can be a learned behavior for pessimists. And the health benefits make it worth it!
