...A Pain In The Neck?...

A pain in the neck is most often caused by the way your keeping your head in a awkward position - that is, pushed forward with your ears in front of your shoulders for long stretches of time that makes your neck hurt. Yet there's hope of releif with the use of these little tips:

1. Ice your Neck - An ice pack or ice wrapped in a towel is good when stiffness is just settling in.
2. Then heat up - After ice has reduced any inflammation, heat is a wonderful soother - a heating pad or hot shower will work.
3. Then there's the modern way - Use an over the counter ointment. Just don't ever use them with a heating pad, or else you could be dealing with blisters as well.

...Stress A Catch 22?...

There has been a lot of advice on the net on how to deal with Stress. Yet is Stress really a catch - 22? I say no. It is something that you can not only beat, but use to your advantage as well. Why do I say this? Because I've done it myself...

I think the most important thing to over coming stress is your attitude toward it " the way you react to it " plays a big part on how you will deal with it. Like for example: Changing the way you think - viewing a difficult assignment at work or school as a chance to improve your skills, instead of Oh no! The sky is falling panic. This alone can change a life of stress to a life of challenge and excitement. Once you make a habit of this one thing in all parts of your life's daily grind, the rest is a cake walk.

...Athlete's Foot...

Athlete's foot is caused by an organism that lives on the skin and breeds under warm, moist conditions. Can a couch potato get athlete's feet? You can bet your remote control. This fungus is an equal opportunity affliction. Male/female, athlete or not. Worse it can take 4 to 6 weeks to get rid of it.
The best tips I can offer are:

1. Baby your feet with soaking, rubs, and rest.
2. Salt your feet by soaking them in a salty water solution. 2 teaspoons of salt per pint of warm water. Do this at least twice a day. This is very unappealing to the fungus, and will also help antifungal medications penetrate deeper and act more effectively.
3. Air them out. No not your feet, your shoes. Remove the laces and prop them open. The air and sun outside will help kill the fungus germs. This even works for sandles as well.
