Do you find that your house is becoming cluttered? Here is a great idea. When cleaning ask yourself if you have used it in the last year at all. If the answer is no and it is not something sentimental than gather it in a box and have yourself a yard sale.
Put memoribilia and sentimental things in a box or specific room so that it is nice and neat.

Turn off the lights and everything else that runs and runs when you don't need it. Our school district saved $250k one year by hiring an energy czar who reminded us to turn out the lights and shut down the computers!
While exercising, it's important to be present in the moment and keep full attention on what you're doing.
If you're on the treadmill and you're watching t.v., or reading while working out, your attention becomes divided and the workout won't be as intense as it could. However, choosing music that motivates you will keep you energized and moving to the beat, making the workout more fun, and all your focused attention will payoff as your fitness level improves.
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!
