Many Uses For Those Little "Shake To Use" Winter Hand Warmers!
Members Were Sparked
Don't just throw away those little disposable winter hand warmer packets after you've come in from the cold. Most of them stay warm for hours, and you can use them for many things! Toss them in your bed to warm it up before you go to sleep. Set your mug of tea down on one to keep it from getting cold. Hold some against whatever muscle of yours is achiest from exercise. They're really like tiny heating pads!
I will confess I have some tucked in my bra right now, after a very cold walk home from the gym.

I've started keeping a bottle of lemon juice in my refrigerator and another in the fridge at work. I drink way more water that way! It's also great to have around so that I can cut up fruits and keep them from oxidizing.
It's way cheaper than using fresh lemons, especially in the winter!
I sit down in front of my computer or the TV, and I automatically want to munch! I realize it's because I'm watching something and being inactive, and I want to keep my hands busy, so I drag my nail box out, and start soaking, filing, shaping, and polishing. If you take your time, this could last an hour, and you'll have the best looking hands EVER. It's all about pampering, and spending time with yourself mindfully, and not stuffing your face mindlessly.
Even if you're not into wearing makeup or nail polish, try using a clear polish, your hands will still appreciate the attention!
