Microplane

By far my favorite method to use when you want finely grated lemon zest. A Microplane is a specific kitchen tool used to remove the brightly colored pulp from citrus fruits.

Using a Microplane:

Hold the lemon in one hand and the Microplane in the other.

Move the lemon back and forth over the racks, turning as you go. Pay close attention to the location of your fingers. (A Microplane has very sharp edges and can easily cut you!)

Continue to grate the lemon until the yellow peel is removed.

Binding rings

Binding loose paper sheets with rings allows easy removal and insertion of sheets. They also open and close fairly quickly, and provide a secure bind. These are perfect for school projects and “rough-work” booklets. However, it’s best not to use binding rings for any important documents.

Weight Llifting

The best bodybuilders who ever lived were strong. They knew that more strength is more muscle. Increase your squat to 140kg / 300lb, the bench press to 100kg / 220lb, and the deadlift to 180kg / 400lb. Your overall muscle mass will increase because strength is size.

Forget about the swelling and pain. Instead, focus on adding weight to the bar. Try to lift more than last time. You will get stronger, which will increase your overall muscle mass. If you are not lifting more weight today than you did last month or year, you are not building muscle.

Save first, spend later

It is hard to save when you are not earning a lot. But it is not impossible. Save first, spend later. Whenever you get your salary, set aside a small part of it. You can invest that money in stocks or open a savings account in any good bank. You might think saving 1% of your salary on every paycheck will not take you anywhere, but in the long run, it will give huge returns.

Cucumber, Lemon, and Mint Water

If you want a low calorie and refreshing glass of water, slice cucumbers and lemons. In a bottle of water, add the sliced cucumber, lemons, and some mint leaves. Stir it and let it stay for an hour. Drink the flavored water throughout the day.

Cotton swabs

Before you try this, you should know that cotton swabs could also push the wax further into the ear canal. It’s best to use cotton swabs for cleaning the wax on the outer ear.

Dip a cotton swab in some warm water, squeeze it, and wipe your outer ear. If you feel you’re about to push the wax in deeper, withdraw the swab right away.

Stay safe

Before you focus on the photography aspect of lightning, you have to make sure you are keeping yourself safe. The first thing you have to do is find a safe spot from which you can photograph the lightning. You should not be taking pictures of lightning in an open area near trees or water. The safest place to be when taking these types of pictures is inside a building or a car. Remember, if you can see the lightning, it is close enough to strike in your vicinity.

Take cool showers

Taking hot showers, while seemingly innocuous, may be the cause behind your frizzy hair.

Frizzy hair is caused primarily by dryness, and hot water can strip hair of its natural oils, causing dryness, which then of course causes frizziness. Cool water allows hair to be cleansed without causing damage.

You don't have to take an ice cold shower every morning, but try lowering your shower's temperature to as cool as you're comfortable with. You can also try washing your hair separately from the rest of your body, using cool water only on your head.
