I have always struggeled getting down the minimum of 8 glasses of water that is recommended. So I changed some habits... I fill 4 bottles of water from my Brita the night before and keep them cold in my fridge. I take a bottle with me practically every where I go.
While driving to work, or any where, I have a bottle with me and take a drink every time I stop at a light or stop sign. I've also stopped drinking coffee during the day. Not only has this saved me money, but if I am drinking something at work, it's my water. 20 continuous weeks now!
Change your heating and cooling system's filter. If the interior glass surface of your windows gets dirty unusually fast, you may need to change the filters on your furnace or air conditioner. Modern airtight homes trap more dust, pollen, dander, & other particles inside than ever before. Furnace & air-conditioner filters help trap that dirt & also extend the life of your appliances.

Filters should be changed every month or two or anytime you canít see light through the filter when you hold it up to a light.
For air-popped popcorn, instead of salt and tons of butter, I use Mrs. Dash Table Blend and a table spoon or so of heart healthy spread, melted. Put the popcorn in a storage bag, shake in some Mrs. Dash and the "butter" and shake it until it's all blended. Yummy and still healthy!
I have used "I Can't Believe it's Not Butter Light" but other healthy spreads would probably work, or a light buttery spray, too.
