Keeping your mind sharp

Keep doing all those crosswords, logics, other word games, being social, etc. It helps you keep your mind sharp into old age. My mother & her relatives are excellent examples of this. Of course, don't forget to eat right & exercise!

Cutting boards

My sister wanted a cutting board for Christmas. The one I bought her had a "channel" to collect meat juices on one side so they wouldn't go all over your counter. If you already have a cutting board, all you have to do is take a router and put the channel in with it and your all set! When you're done make sure you recondition the board with a little oil to keep it in good condition. emoticon emoticon

Get your family to help you

When your trying to get organized, have everybody in the family use the same system. That way you can work together and if you have to, label your cabinets to show where everything belongs. That also helps if you have guests over who want to help with the dishes. I always accept help because of the fibro. emoticon

Flu shots

If you haven't already, don't forget your flu shot! That will keep your immune system stronger, not only against the flu but other things as well. That's what my Dr. told me once.

Moving to music

I'm not a natural dancer, so I had to learn this the hard way.When moving to music, move at your waist, not your neck. It causes less pain and you will be more likely to whittle your middle. If anyone has any tips for me with dancing, contact my spark page. emoticon
