trying to get to sleep

when I have trouble getting to sleep I go on the computer and do my computer work for the next day. I don't like to toss and turn so its better to get rid of e-mail or do the points for spark people for that next day. That way I sleep in later the next day and feel rested.

How do you know when you are "full"?

When you are eating and and you hear yourself saying, "I'm Full", stop eating. I noticed that I was hearing myself say those very words. In the past I would have just kept eating until I had eaten everything on my plate; today I didn't.

Listen and think

Listen to people when they speak. I found myself waiting to talk instead of really listening to what the person was saying. There is so much wisdom to be gained from the experiences of others if we just listen and apply it to our lives.

Cool Your Mouth After Spicy Food

When you eat something spicy the first impulse is to drink water. Don't. “That just spreads the heat around,” per McIlhenny Company, Tabasco Sauce maker. Instead, “eat a lot of bread or rice,” or try dairy products, like milk, sour cream, ice cream, yogurt, butter, or cheese¯the softer the better.
