Easy Ways to Give Any Meal a Powerful Nutritional Boost

Train Yourself to Become a Morning Person and Test If You're a Real Lark or Night Owl About 15 years ago I suffered from a serious case of Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome, where I was most awake between 1-3 AM, and couldn't get out of bed before 9 or 10 AM. It didn't help that I had a high tech/dotcom job where I could roll in at 10:30, no problem. I fixed my sleep rhythm by doing a few things: 1 - I bought an enormous light box, and I put 2 150 watt bulbs in the lamps next to my bed, and put those lamps on a timer to go off at 6AM. At night, I came home and didn't turn on any lights in the house. Watched a little TV, and went to bed. Once the lamps came on, I sat in front of the light box on my computer for 30 minutes. I had a hard time the first week or so, then my rhythm shifted.

Plan Your Weekly Meals, Stress Free I've been planning my recipes and doing my shopping for the week ahead for years now. Awesome idea. One thing I've learned - you just cant set meals for specific days. I used to try at first, but there are just way too many things that crop up to stop you - meeting a mate for a drink after work, small (or missed) lunch so you're starving when you get home and your meal takes an hour to make, 'accidentally' snacking mid-afternoon so not hungry when you get home, delayed journeys, too tired when you get in to start faffing around with big recipes. Its a nice idea but for me, no. What works for me is just to have a list of meals, and to make sure that you have some that are quicker and/or easier than others. Even better, make sure that at least one of them is a store cupboard dinner - i.e. most of the things come out of tins or packets. By the way, let me recommend this book as the daddy of all midweek cooking books for lifehackers. []

How to Speed Up, Clean Up, and Revive Your Windows PC Or buy a better laptop next time. Descent laptop usually have easy access to the fan. Best example, is the Dell Latitude E series. 1 screw, and the entire bottom plate can be slide out like a remove cover. And you have full internal access. You can clean the fans easily, and if you want to change any hardware.. well in a few screws you can remove the entire motherboard. All screws are the same size. But of course, what you suggested, is very good. Actually, I've always wondered about the action of blowing air over the fans: Does the fan motor generate electricity when the fan is forced to spin at high speed?

Cook a Steak on Its Fat Side First (and 99 More of the Greatest Cooking Tips of All Time) most of the world doesn't refrigerate eggs. Unless the shell is compromised, then eColi isn't a significant concern... so long as you plan to cook the egg eventually anyway. The way eggs are harvested these days I would not trust it. If you are baking them, like in a cake, then the bacteria will be obliterated. I've heard the majority of contaminated egg cases happen in restaurants where they beat large batches together, dozens at a time. Salmonella is the more common contaminant of eggs, not E. For the end-user of whole raw eggs, the risk of getting Salmonella from eating raw eggs is very small, with some estimates putting the risk at 1 in 20,000, or 0.005%. In the case that you require raw eggs, whites, or yolks (hollandaise, mayo, Rocky shake, etc), you can buy pasteurized eggs.

Develop a Two-Minute Meditation Habit and Make It Stick DrugCite Tells You the Side Effects of Nearly Any Medicine and Provides Helpful, Relevant Statistics This is the first time I've ever seen a side-effect that I had when taking Adderall clearly laid out. Every time I mentioned it to my doctor he looked at me like I was crazy. I brought it up with 2 doctors, 1 nurse practitioner and 1 dentist. With 2 clicks on this site, I found it. [] - Neurological category -> Paraesthesia (Paraesthesia being defined as "abnormal skin sensations (as tingling or tickling or itching or burning) usually associated with peripheral nerve damage.") It does me no good, but it feels good to finally have my experience validated somewhere.
