Surprising Uses for Cotton Swabs and Making Exercise a Habit- The Morning Thing on 9/2/15

Cotton Swabs… It can be tempting to use them to clean your ears. But that’s a big no! That’s a big safety concern. So what can you do with them? Turns out there are a lot of surprising uses all around the house for them- from cleaning your laptop to getting the last drop of makeup out of the container. Today on the Morning Thing we took a look at what can be done with them, and you can find the whole list HERE.

In addition to talking about uses for cotton swabs we also took a look at exercise; specifically how to make it a habit. It is really easy to think of exercise as a chore and something that is anything but extinct- trust me, I’m right there with you. But when you dread exercise it makes it that much easier to do it at all, let alone regularly. So here are a few things that can help you get on the right exercise track.

  1. Forget the myths! Exercise can be fun (think playing catch with the kids, taking a walk through the woods, or swimming). Find something that works for you on a personal level and forget the myths.
  2. Start slowly. It can be easy to burn out and give up if you start big. It’s okay- scratch that- it’s great to start small and work your way up.
  3. Find an exercise buddy. Having a friend keep you accountable helps you from talking yourself out of it. It’s a good idea to pick one who is in the same shape as you.
  4. Pick an exercise that you like. Try it for a few weeks and if you still hate it then try something new. Remember- pick something else up, don’t give up entirely.
