October is Energy Awareness Month! That’s an awareness we can get behind! 🙂 Here is 10 easy ways to cut your energy use in half…courtesy of greenamerica.org
1. Turn off the lights! – shut off lights while not using a room.
2. Install ceiling fans! In the summer keep them rotating counter-clockwise and in the winter clockwise to circulate the warm air rising.
3. Show your fridge some love! – clean the coils every 6 months to keep it running efficiently! Take up unused space with jugs full of water, these will hold in the cold rather than your fridge cooling blank space.
4. Wash clothes in cold water & air dry! – washing in cold gets your clothes just as clean & cuts your washer’s energy use in half!
5. Upgrade appliances! – many newer appliances now are more energy efficient, especially if built after 1993. It’s worth the investment.
6. Give your water heater a blanket! – seriously! an insulated heater can reduce heat loss by 24-45%!
7. Plug air leaks! – seal air leaks around doors and windows with caulk & weatherstripping…also curtains, films, and plastic covers over windows help keep the heat in during the winter!
8.Use your programmable thermostat! – learn how to use the settings on your thermostat to maximize the efficiency of your heating & cooling systems.
9. Air dry dishes! – ignore the drying option on your dishwasher!
10. Eliminate Phantom Load! – unplug your electronics when not using them to save energy they may be still using

Before you pick up your cell phone to send your next text, read this article. Texting may be harming your health in some surprising ways. We all know that texting while driving is not safe, and may cause unnecessary accidents as drivers are completely distracted by their phones, even those who say they can still react fast enough in an emergency. But there are other ways texting is negatively effecting your health, and some of them may surprise you. If you are curious, keep reading. There are things you can do to mitigate these problems.
Many people, when texting, bring their faces down toward the device in their hands. Leaning their heads forward, they round their shoulders. This is very poor posture and may result in text neck. If you have ever had a stiff, achy neck or upper back pain after an extended text conversation, then you know the condition. The human head weighs ten to twelve pounds. When you have good posture, your spine can carry that much weight. Leaning down to look at your phone puts sixty pounds of pressure on your spine and the base of your neck. This pressure can, if it goes on long enough, lead to pinched nerves in your spine. Pinched nerves cause numbness and tingling down your arms and in your hands. To avoid this problem, bring your phone to your eyes. Be aware of your posture and sit straight, with your shoulders back.
Cell Phone Slumber
Cell phones may be causing your sleep problems. Not only do they emit radiation which may cause insomnia in some people, but they also emit blue light. This color of light tells your brain it is time to wake up. If you text in the dark, use a blue light filter on your phone. This does not interfere with your ability to see the device but it does dim the light intensity. To avoid the sleeplessness, ban your phone from the bedroom. If you have no choice and need your phone beside your bed, cut out screen time an hour before sleeping. This will allow you to sleep much better overall.
Repetitive Strain Injuries
People who spend a lot of time texting each day and looking down at their phones are prone to sprains and strains of the joints in their upper body. These repetitive motion injuries are caused by texting excessively, sometimes for hours on end and by bad posture and can be quite painful. Try to limit the amount of time you text each day. If you have to make a lot of texts at a time, make sure to keep good posture. Look up often and take breaks to move around. Also, most phones tend to have dictation services which will allow you to dictate texts to your friends and family. That way, you can still keep in touch.
Texting can be very bad for your health in surprising ways. It can cause injuries, eye strain and car accidents. But with a little prudence these dangers can be avoided and you can still keep in touch with the people you care about.
Let’s face it, life is busy. Sometimes it catches up with us, leaving us feeling stressed and overwhelmed. When this happens, you need a way to fight back.
Fortunately, even just a few minutes can be enough to help you recharge. Here are 26 ways to relax.
Take 5 deep breathes, give it your full attention, notice the pause but in and out.
Journaling about your feelings can help relieve them.
- Be grateful
Write a list of what you’re grateful for—nothing is too small.
- Make a plan
Knowing what you need to do today (and what you don’t) can help relieve the stress.
Adults can sometimes forget how to play, but anything that is purposeless and pleasurable and help us unwind.
- Use visualization
Whether you’re really standing at the ocean or just imagining it, your brain responds the same way.
- Talk to someone
One of your best tools for coping with stress are social connections.
- Go green
Immersing yourself in nature can help you unwind. Go for a walk along the river or find a good bench under a tree.
- Sleep on it
It may feel counterintuitive, but take 20 minutes and catch some zzz’s. It can refresh your mind, while the brief time frame keeps you from getting groggy.
- Change the tunes
Listening to upbeat or calming music can quickly shirt your mood.
Even a few minutes can ease anxiety, especially when practiced daily.
- Be present
Stop your thoughts and take a minute to be present in your body to be aware of it.
- Warm up
Place a warm compress over your neck and shoulders for 10 minutes, lean back, and close your eyes to relax those tense muscles in your face, neck, and back.
- Laugh out loud
Reduce your levels of stress hormone cortisol and increase feel-good endorphins with a good laugh.
- Stare at the ceiling
Tilting your head up lowers blood pressure and slows your breath. Count down slowly from 60 while doing this to help still your mind.
- Set your worries aside
Write down all of the things that are causing you stress, then put them aside to deal with tomorrow.
- Sip green tea
Green tea has L-Theanine in it, which helps relieve anger.
- Go dark
With some dark chocolate. A single square (1.4 oz) can regulate your cortisol levels.
- Chew gum
The repetitive and thoughtless nature of chewing gum can reduce anxiety within just a few minutes.
- Count down
This simple action demands enough attention to stifle the sources of your stress.
- DIY a hand massage
Hands carry a lot of tension, so stop wringing your hands and massage them instead.
- Grab a golf ball
But forget the irons. Instead, roll it against the bottom of your feet to release tension.
- Squeeze it out
On a stress ball. They didn’t become a common desk tchotchke by accident.
- Get some sun
Take a quick walk outside and soak up some rays to lift your spirits.
- Practice yoga
The smooth deliberate motion of yoga is great for calming and re-centering.
- Cuddle with a pet
A good snuggle with a furry friend is a proven way to de-stress.
