Keep the Doors and Windows Shut

Keeping the doors and windows shut may not be the best way to protect your house but it is better than leaving your house open. Use long sticks on the inside of the windows to avoid burglars from breaking in by sliding them. Never leave the windows which are easily accessible by outside open even when you leave the room or go to sleep.

If you stay away from home often or are going on a long vacation, don't lock your door from the outside and leave valuables at home. A door with a huge lock draws attention. It's a sign that no one has been there for many days. Take valuable items with you or drop them at your friend's house.

Change your environment

If you're having trouble studying, it could be because you're studying in the wrong room.

Studying in your bedroom, although tempting, and very comfortable, may be hindering your school performance and information retention. Your brain associates your bedroom with relaxing, so you're likely to feel sleepy and out of focus when studying in it. If you don't have an office, just try to work anywhere but your bedroom. Try at the dining table or in the living room, whichever one has minimal distractions.

End with a quote

Ending an essay effectively will help your reader feel like your paper explored a few main points in a clear and concise way. The best way to reflect that in your closing paragraph is by using a quote that helps put your essay into perspective. It can also reaffirm the points that you made throughout your paper. The quote should come from a trusted scholarly source.

Put your electronics away

Electronic devices, such as smartphones and laptops, emit a blue light that helps us to see the screens better. This blue light mimics the natural light of the daytime, which messes with our circadian rhythm or sleep-wake cycle. Our brains register the blue light of our smartphones as daytime, so they then block production of a sleep hormone called melatonin.

Putting your electronic devices away a couple of hours before you plan on going to sleep can greatly improve your sleep quality, and help you get to sleep faster. If you're having trouble getting to sleep, instead of browsing social media, try reading a book, doing some light exercise, or meditating.

Be Ready to Change Yourself

An apology means nothing if you are not ready to mend your ways. If you are sorry about something, try not to repeat it. Change yourself for good and stop hurting the ones you love. To have a happy and healthy relationship with your loved ones, focus on changing what is causing the problem and avoid the problem from happening again.

Use an Old tooth brush and a Stain Remover

If your pet is always making your carpet dirty, keep a pet stain remover for carpets handy. When you spot any stains, spray the cleaner over the carpet for 5 minutes or as described on the bottle’s instructions.

Then use an old toothbrush to rub the stain remover into the carpet fibers. Use a clean cloth to wipe it. Wet the cloth a little if needed to clean the stain completely. For stubborn stains repeat the process 2-3 times. 

Sleeping Position

When you are cold at night, you might curl up or get in an uncomfortable position. The uncomfortable position if held for longer can give you aches on the following day.

To sleep well, prepare your bed before you get inside. Keep a warm water bottle with you, in cold weather. When the bed is warm, spread out your body, and sleep in a relaxed position. If you are a side sleeper, make sure your body is stretched and relaxed. It can help you fall asleep soon and wake up fresh and energetic.

Sleep well

For long, research has shown a close association between poor memory and lack of sleep. Sleep is critical for memory consolidation, a process whereby the brain strengthens your short-term memories to transform them into long-lasting memories.

Sleep well

An ideal sleep duration for an adult individual is about seven to nine hours every night. However, in addition to some solid sack time, you should aim for a regular sleep cycle as well (wake up and go to bed at the same time every day).
