Be Open

When you really want to give her a compliment but don’t want to be cheesy, be open about it. Say; ‘I don’t want to sound cheesy, but you really are a very good dancer’ or say ‘I’m honest, you are like a ray of positivity. Letting her know that you know a compliment sounds cheesy but you can’t help saying it. This also shows that you are honest and straight-forward. 


Retirement gives you the freedom to truly unwind in a way you could never do before. You can now put the alarm clock in the closet and wake up naturally. Take your time and linger on the newspaper a little bit longer. You don’t have to dress up and rush to the office anymore. Take your time to do what you enjoy and relax.


Make more space in your house

Take a look around your house- can you make some open space by knocking out some wall? Is there any spot in your house that you can turn into a beautiful bathroom or pantry? If yes, go for it as bigger homes are valued much more as compared to small houses.

For instance, you can go for a dirty kitchen addition. All you need is a spot in your house, a sink, a countertop, and hardwood flooring. It might not be cheap but adding value to your house will benefit you in the long-run, especially if you think of selling it.

Disinfect frequently used objects and surfaces

Viruses can survive on surfaces like clothes, kitchenware, metal, paper, plastic, etc. The duration for which they’ll survive depends on the level of temperature and humidity, but a 2016 study suggests that viruses that cause influenza can possibly survive for months.

To minimize the risk of infecting yourself, disinfect these frequently used objects with solutions that contain either alcohol or bleach. 

Time it well

If you’re hoping to persuade your parents, you’re going to have to choose a suitable time to stack the odds in your favor.

For instance, if you go hoping to persuade your parents right after they had a stressful day at work, you’re not going to get your way for sure.

Before approaching your parents, make sure that they are in a good mood. Strike a happy conversation and feel the status of their mood before making your move.

Also, make sure that your parents have enough time that you need to properly finish your conversation. If they are cooking a meal for guests, it’s best to wait until the next day when they are feeling more relaxed and have a couple of minutes.

With bananas

It may sound strange, but placing some bananas near peaches, or any fruit you'd like to ripen, can help them to soften faster.

Bananas, as they ripen, release ethylene gas. This gas breaks down the cell walls in any surrounding fruit. This leads to the breakdown of sugars in fruit, giving you soft, juicy peaches in half the time!
