Good skin care is easy

 Soap or lotion and moisturizing are the two main ways you can improve the look of your skin. Pick a moisturizer with sun protection because sun damage is the main factor that ages skin.

Vitamin E helps to revitalize your skin. Skin products that include retinol help minimize fine lines and help prevent wrinkles to a degree.



If you feel down, sad, or hopeless for two or more weeks, or have little interest in or get little pleasure from things you once enjoyed, you may be depressed.

Don’t try to "tough it out." Untreated depression is bad for your mental and physical health.


Always eat (a little) dessert

Sweets such as biscuits and low-fat sweetened yogurts signal your brain that the meal is over. Without them, you might not feel satiated-which might prevent those midnight cravings.

If you apply yourself, you can learn the equivalent of a college bachelor’s degree in one year or less by ruthlessly studying the subject at hand on your own time. 

If you want to learn about something bad enough, you can learn it very quickly.


Tipping etiquette

According to tipping etiquette, it creates a very awkward situation to ask for change from the person you are tipping.

If for some reason you don’t have a tip ready, it’s better to skip it, particularly if you can get change from somewhere else and return with your tip at some point in the future.


Be positive

Speaking negative things may put the other person down or even generate a negative vibe. Talking about positive things will not only generate a better vibe but also help you in having better conversations.


Got thining bones?

Your healthcare provider should evaluate your risk of osteoporosis, or "thinning of the bones." (It’s not just a "woman’s disease.")

Depending on what the evaluation finds, he or she may recommend that you get a bone scan and, if necessary, take medication to strengthen your bones and lower your risk of fractures.
