Cold remedies

Have you ever found any cold remedies that really work? I’m asking because I need help. At least twice a year I develop what can only be described as a nasty cold, and I end up suffering with it for at least two weeks. During these two weeks not only can I not find any time to work, and my house is a mess. My husband is very understanding, but after a while he starts to get grumpy. My daughter wants me to play with her but I am always so stuffed up that I get dizzy and feel like I am about to fall over.

Surely there has to be some cold remedies out there that I have yet to try. Something has to work. I can take some medications that work for a while, but after they wear off I feel worse than before I took it. Since I cannot be on a steady diet of medicines while I am watching a young child, I have to think of other cold remedies to help ease my cold into something a little more bearable. When I take cold medications I get clumsy, and that is not a good thing when my daughter is so active and gets into so much trouble.

Back Exercises

If you have a back injury, you are going to be in a lot of pain. I once fell down the stairs at work and ended up with a back spasm that would not go away. I had no idea that something so simple could be so painful. I ignored the pain at first, but it got to be so bad that I had to finally give in and go to the doctor. He told me that I was lucky that I had come in when I did because it wasn’t the type of injury that was known to go away on its own right away. He had to do a few things to my back, and he gave me a list of back exercises to do to help strengthen the muscles.

Airbrush Tan

Check out all the leathery old folks out there! Now, how do you suppose they got this way? Could it have been caused by the powerful glow of the moon? I don’t think so. These folks are most likely sun bunnies. Those Caucasians who crave darker skin. Are you destined to be a leathery old man or woman as well? Hey, if you sun bathe on a daily basis, I’m thinking you are. It’s inevitable. The harmful UV rays from the sun will darken your skin and weather it like it’s no joke. We’ve known this for years now. That’s why new-age methods of tanning have come about. Not tanning beds! Those are worse than the real sun. I was thinking more along the lines of an airbrush tan. This is the glow of the future.
