Use the 10 second rule. Whenever you are in the grocery store or any store use the 10 second rule. That means if you pick something up to put in your cart look at it and think for 10 seconds and ask yourself why I am buying this? Do I need this? If you really take the time to think then you can save yourself a lot of money. This is a really good rule out there for all you impulse shoppers.
Use visual reminders. Make a giant bar that shows how much debt you have on one end and zero on the other. Then each time you pay down some of your debt fill in your chart. This allows you to keep track of your progress and manage your debt.
Eat a balanced breakfast. By eating a balanced breakfast it allows you to avoid the temptations at work the sugary doughnuts or that vending machine filled with junk food. By eating a well balanced breakfast it also stops you from overindulging at lunch.
Jazz up your leftovers. Don’t throw out leftovers because you think they are just going to be bland and no one will eat it. For example instead of throwing out your leftover chilli take that chilli and use it for spaghetti sauce or use it as a base for sloppy joes.
Brown bag it. Buying lunch at school or work can add up to a lot of money and isn’t necessarily the most healthy. Instead spend that money and buy some stuff to pack for lunches. Yogurts, fresh fruit and vegetables, sandwiches, crackers etc.
Elisha Cuthbert was born in Calgary Alberta in 1982. Her angelic looks led to modeling and it wasn’t long before she was posing for numerous advertisements. Elisha grew up in Montreal and began to take an interest in acting. She first appeared on Are You Afraid of the Dark. Her comfort in front of the camera led her to host Popular Mechanics for Kids. In 1997 she made her first movie debut in Dancing on the Moon. In 1998 she then appeared in Nico the Unicorn, and in 2001 she starred in Lucky Girl. That same year she auditioned for a role on a new TV series 24. The show was an instant success and literally transformed Elisha into a sex symbol overnight. In 2003 she appeared in Love Actually and Old School and it was obvious to everyone she was meant to be a star. In 2004 she made it big with her first starring role on a big time Hollywood motion picture The Girl Next Door. In 2004 she left 24 but still had roles in movies like House of Wax, and Captivity. Elisha is currently dating Dion Phaneuf.
What is high blood pressure?
High blood pressure is when the blood moves from your arteries at a higher pressure than normal. When high blood pressure can be linked to a certain drug or disease it is often referred to as hypertension. Your blood pressure varies throughout the day depending on certain factors, so it may be necessary to take numerous readings to learn to control your blood pressure.
Understanding the numbers.
You may have watched TV or heard your doctor say BP 120/80. What does that mean? The top number is used to measure systolic pressure which occurs when your heart is squeezing out blood. The bottom (second number) is known as diastolic pressure which is used to measure the pressure when your heart is filling with blood –relaxing between beats. A normal range for blood pressure is below 120/80. If your pressure is more then 140/90 then you have high blood pressure (this will vary if you are over the age of 65.)
How do you determine if you have high blood pressure.
When you go to visit your doctor he will place a blood pressure cuff around arm and he will listen to the flow of your blood. Your doctor will measure your pressure on more than one visit to determine if you have high blood pressure.
How often you should have your blood pressure will vary. You should get it checked once every 2 years after you turn 18. If you are on medication for a high blood pressure or have a family history of high blood pressure it will be checked at every visit to ensure your medication is working and that it is under control.
Suffering from high blood pressure can damage blood vessels in the heart early on. Which would make you more susceptible to conditions like heart disease, stroke, and kidney problems.
Typically high blood pressure doesn’t have any symptoms which is why it’s very important to get it checked regularly.
If you suffer from high blood pressure your doctor will get you to change your lifestyle. If that still doesn’t help then you may need to be placed on medication. Lifestyle changes include;
Avoiding Tobacco products
Losing weight if you have a BMI greater then 25
Regular exercise 30-60 minutes 4-7 days a week
Reduction of sodium intake
Reduction of Alcohol
Avoidance of fat and cholesterol
Increasing intake of potassium, calcium, and magnesium
If you are lucky enough the lifestyle changes alone may get rid of your high blood pressure.
