Use your stairs

If you've got a multi-level home, you can make great use of your stairs for your next workout! Running up and down the stairs is a great form of cardio. It gets your heart rate going and keeps it high for the entirety of the circuit. It's also a great way to include resistance through the incline. It will be much tougher than just taking a walk or going for a jog. Use your stairs

Use hair masks

Hair masks are great ways to give your hair an extra boost. These products contain oils that give your hair shine and smooth down any frizz.

Look for hair products with little to no perfumes or essential oils, as these can actually dry your hair further and do more harm than good. It's best to use products with as few ingredients as possible so you know exactly what you're putting on your head.

It's also worth noting that some oils work better than others, so here are a few oils that work the best for preventing and treating frizz:

Coconut oil - Protects against heat damage and can help to restore frizzy and dry hair. Also helps the hair to retain moisture for longer-lasting benefits. It's also incredibly potent, so make sure to use only a little bit at a time, or as directed on the label.

Jojoba Oil - Jojoba oil is great and commonly used in haircare products because it shares many characteristics with your body's natural oils. It won't mess with your body's natural chemical balance, so it is ideal for those with sensitive scalps and dandruff.

Olive Oil - Olive oil, when applied to the hair, coats the shaft, which locks in moisture and keeps it shiny and frizz-free. It is ideal for dull, dandruff-prone hair.

Sip on some green tea

The herbal tonic helps reduce the stress responses of your body, thanks to a chemical called L-Theanine. Just sipping on a mugful of the green beverage could calm you down and set a positive tone for the rest of your day. 

Set reasonable goals for yourself

Learning a language on your own can be overwhelming and rewarding all at the same time. The best way to take this huge task on is by setting small, reasonable goals for yourself each week. By setting these goals, you are keeping yourself accountable to learning the language. These goals may be things like learning vocabulary words relating to specific subjects, such as animals or things to do on the weekends. Use a numerical goal to make sure you're getting these done. For example, try learning 25 words each week.

Offer to Comfort Them

When someone is feeling sad, stressed, or is crying, ask them if they need a hug. If they are very upset, go near and extend your arms, if their body language shows they are interested to accept a hug from you, go on.

Take a deep breath and give them a warm and relaxing hug. Hold them tight but not in a discomforting manner. Keep hugging them until they are ready to let go. Hug for at least 20 seconds and rub their back or arms. Rubbing the back helps release physical stress and reduce stress.

Offer to Comfort Them

Put the Baby on the Shoulder

If you will be taking care of the baby for a while, want to burp the baby, or put the baby to sleep, the 'baby on the shoulder' is the most comfortable position. You will also be able to walk around while holding the baby.

Hold the baby in both your hands and gently put him on one of your shoulders. If you are right-handed, put the baby on the right shoulder. Keep the right hand on the baby’s hip and the left on the baby’s back, neck, or head for support. If you are not used to walking with babies, don’t hold the baby with one hand. 

Start at your toes

Lie on your back, with your arms at your sides and your legs about hip width apart, or in any position that is most comfortable for you. Focus on relaxing your body one tiny bit at a time, starting at your toes, and slowly working your way up to your ankles, then calves, then knees, and so on. This not only relaxes your body, but also prevents your mind from wandering, which plays a large part in insomnia.

It's best to go as slowly as you can, as this gives your body more time to relax and pulls you into a deeper meditative state.

Hang Frames

Hanging frames is the easiest of all the ways you can decorate your room. Find a painting that will enhance the beauty of the room. You can find so many amazing pieces of art on the internet these days. Find the right painting or picture for the room. Take into account, the size, and color of the frame. To make the painting, your room’s center of attention, choose bold colored paintings.
