Winter is for prohibited H2O bottles

That East Coast cold snap got a gears in my mind turning, and forced me to figure out how to keep my common headquarters comfortable as my mild space heater breathed a estimation of prohibited atmosphere into my bedroom. The solution? Water bottles. In particular, prohibited H2O bottles pressed underneath my bedsheets, as suggested by a proprietor health consultant Beth Skwarecki. Now, instead of cold comforters and a worried initial hitch of shivering, my bed greets me (and my feet) with a comfortable welcome each night. Pro tip: set an alarm an hour before we wish to strike a pouch to prep your H2O bottles and give a feverishness time to interfuse your bed.

Abandon clunky sleet boots

I got shorter weatherproof boots for bland use on days like currently and we feel like I’ve seen a light after years of walking around in unwieldy rainboots/snowboots when it’s customarily minimally rainy/snowy out.

Microwave your notebook

I got a Wave microwaveable cover ($25). we laughed when we initial saw these, though after cleaning out my bureau we unexpected conclude them. Notebooks are tough to chuck out, ok? You always feel like you’re going to need them someday. This one comes with a scanner app that is surefire and painless to use (unlike all other scanner apps, sorry) so when you’ve run out of pages and all is in a cloud, we only x-ray a cover to erase a ink and afterwards start over. The locate is it comes with a Pilot Frixion coop and if we remove it, we can’t only use any aged coop (the ink has to be heat-erasable, we see). So I’ve systematic additional pens, like a sucker. I’ll news behind after my initial microwaving.

…and stop facing pharmaceuticals

I did not consider I’d ever be shilling for Big Pharma on Lifehacker, though we also never suspicion I’d be a chairman who got a influenza shot and afterwards got a flu. I’d gotten conceited about how frequency we get sick, and afterwards we was felled. we was agreeably astounded on my outing to a pharmacy Cold Flu aisle to find it a undoubted cocktail bar. You can get a accurate remedy we need to provide a accurate constellation symptoms we have; no more, no less. we am here with we currently interjection to a CVS general chronicle of Mucinex Fast Max Severe Congestion Cough. we customarily drive transparent of remedy when we have a cold, meditative a side effects aren’t value it (cf. NyQuil hangover), though we have come to a end that Mucinex is indeed a really effective product. we also dabbled with OG Mucinex 12-Hour, and it available me several nights of physic sleep.

Use Twitter for good instead of evil

This week we started a viral collaborative Twitter thread, a kind where one chairman asks for everyone’s stories. You should start one too! A good thread feels like holding justice in a behind dilemma of your favorite bar. To keep a thread active, quote-tweet a best responses with a few enlivening words. One note on formatting: don’t contend ‘quote this tweet,’ only ask a question.

Add something new to your Instagram feed

I follow a smashing illustrator Mari Andrew on Instagram, and she creates my feed so most better. Her drawings uncover that all a small things—our pointless curiosities, a flitting thoughts we never tell anyone, a minute specks of fun we only occur to notice—are in fact, a large things.
