Do you have a household or general life tip to share?
Ants hate the smell of cinnamon. If ants are invading your house, sprinkling cinnamon where they are coming in does a good job of getting them to go somewhere else and not bother you anymore.
If you have a spider or flying insect problem around your house, orange spray - or orange oil will get rid of them and keep them away. You can find orange oil at your local home improvement store.
I've added as one of my goals to walk upstairs a total of ten times a day. I never went unless I had a reason. Now I consciously count the times I go up. I don't count going down.
While cleaning up I always try and find an excerise I can do while doing chores. Washing dishes "leg lifts", Dusting, "lunges", washing clothes "running in place", hanging up clothes on the line "squats"...See how many you can come up with while cleanercising.
I do lunges and squats and walk in place while sorting, folding and doing laundry, I walk in place while doing the dishes. When I walk the dogs, we play soccer as well...Border Collies can never get enough activity! I also take the stairs twice when doing chores! It all adds up!!
I use Castile Soap (Dr. Bronner's) for cleaning up around the house. It works great, costs a lot less than all the other cleaners I used to use, and is chemical free.
Every time you grab the phone, stand up and pace around. Heavy people sit on average two and a half hours more per day than thin people, according to the Mayo Clinic.

casserole dishes, textbooks,water jugs, and many other things can replace holding weights if you don't have them.
Natural peanut butter doesn't contain added oils, but it does require regular stirring, especially when you first buy it. That can be messy and difficult. So each time I buy a new jar, I store it in my pantry upside down until I'm ready to use it. That mixes the oil better for easier stirring!
