Kangaroo Care

Kangaroo care, or more commonly known as skin-to-skin contact, has amazing mental benefits for the baby. The name of the care comes from the tendency of kangaroos who hold their young immediately as they're born. Kangaroo care decreases the baby's dependency on incubators and decreases mortality rates from 70% to 30%. Furthermore, even after the baby is born, kangaroo care can be a great way to comfort the baby as they are struggling to get accustomed to the world outside the womb.

Listen to Music

Listening to music instantly makes us feel better. If you have been feeling stressed out for a while, play a song that you used to be crazy about in high-school. It will be nostalgic and stress-relieving. If you want to enjoy and get rid of the tension, dance to it or sing along. Music is considered one of the quickest therapies for stress.

Remove the outer covering through a spoon

Take an orange and cut it from the middle all around. The cut you make should not be deep and must be circular in length. Ensure that the cut did not cut the flesh. It should only affect the outer covering as that’s the main technique to peel the orange.

Insert a blunt knife. I usually insert a spoon between the outer covering and the flesh to remove. Dig in and get the flesh out properly, from top to bottom.

Silicon Lubricant

There are special silicone lubricants for sliding glass doors that you can use to make sliding easier. The silicone-based lubricants are perfect for the sliding doors because they are non-sticky and avoid building up dirt. You can find it easily at a Home Depot or order one online.

To apply the silicone lubricant, clean the track of your sliding door and wipe it with a clean cloth. Spray the lubricant on the track and wipe the sides of the floor to avoid slipping on the floor.

Essential oils

When essential oils like oregano, cinnamon, thyme, rosemary, lemon, tea tree, and clove are around – bacteria, viruses, fungi, and even mold doesn’t survive. Weber State University’s studies suggest that Thieves Oil kills almost 99.96 percent of airborne bacteria. This antiseptic blend of cinnamon, pine needle, eucalyptus, thyme, grapefruit, and lemon helps keep your home germ-free and purifies the air.

Gather your stock research material

Start by doing qualitative research and reviewing the company’s financials. Pull together a few documents that the companies are required to file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission:

Form 10-K: This is an annual report that includes financial statements that have been audited independently. From this, you can review a company’s source of income, its balance sheet, how it handles its cash, and its expenses and revenue.

Form 10-Q: This shows a quarterly update on financial and operations results.

Listen to podcast in Spanish

If you understand Spanish a little bit, you can improve it by listening to podcasts. Start with an easy book that you have already heard in English or your native language and slowly and steadily you will learn the language and its pronunciations through this.
