Get a pedometer and stick it in your pocket.  If by the end of your day the number of steps is under 10,000, walk around your house, apartment or up and down the steps until you reach that goal.  This simple challenge will significantly improve your health.  Walking strengthens your core muscles, promotes endurance and blasts fat.

Think Fitness, Healthy
Views: 881 | Average Rating:  2.3 | Rating Count: 3 | Comments: 0

Instead of being obsessed with losing those last 10 pounds, focus on regular exercise and eating right.  Being a little overweight (emphasis on "a little") may help protect the body as we age.  Women who don't sweat their curves may remain worry-free and lower stress levels and a healthy lifestyle can add up to a longer life. Focus less on getting slim and more on being strong.  And don't forget to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep nightly to help maintain immune function.

Keep a Can of Wasp and Hornet Spray Handy
Views: 9665 | Average Rating:  1 | Rating Count: 3 | Comments: 2

I recently read an article tip to keep a can of Wasp and Hornet spray by your bed or on your desk at work.  The spray will reach 20 to 30 feet, spray an intruder in the eyes, to temporarily blind the attacker and give you a chance to remove yourself from the situation and contact help . This is an inexpensive and effective defense method for someone who has concerns about safety in their life.
