Do what you love

You don't have to do a lot to reap the benefit of exercise. Just do what you love every day. Walk, dance, whatever. Just do it each day.

What's the Best Use of My Time Right Now?

Keep a list of things you need to do. As new tasks come up, add them to the list. When you finish a task, cross it off the list. Then ask yourself, "What's the best use of my time right now?" Find the task on the list that answers that question and do it next.

Keeping Salad Greens Fresh

Buy large boxes of salad greens and keep them fresh by adding a paper towel to the box and refrigerating it upside down. The paper towel will absorb excess moisture so the greens will stay fresher longer.

AAA members save big on insurance

Because people who are willing to pay to belong to an auto club are statistically more safety minded, insurance bought through AAA is less costly. The difference will more than pay for your membership. Plus you can use your membership card to get discounts at many stores, restaurants, etc.

Change what you are doing

If what you are doing isn't working for you, change what you are doing. If your exercise routine is causing pain, pick a different exercise routine. If your food choices aren't setting well with your body, change what you eat. Pay attention to what your body tells you.

Use spinach instead of lettuce on your sandwiches to boost nutrition. Also, use mashed avocado instead of cheese or mayonnaise to get those good fats.

Dealing with Cravings

When I get cravings, I like to postpone them. I tell myself that I can have it on Sunday (for instance). Then when Sunday comes, I'm usually not in the mood for that food. If that doesn't work, I brush my teeth.

Eat 30 a day

I just read that the Japanese have a saying that you should eat 30 different things every day. It helps make sure you get a wide variety of nutrients. Just make sure the portions are tiny. Think of a bento box, lots of little treats.
