Counting down toward another New Year, I resuscitate my abandoned list of Things to Do and run my eye over the so-called resolutions I cheerily, and – yes – resolutely, proclaim year after year. The list is in no way unique; indeed, it comprises the standard jumble of platitudes that are enumerated on anyone’s typical inventory: I resolve to follow a healthier diet, watch my weight, get enough sleep, do more good deeds, etc., etc., etc. As with the case of many such lists, mine mainly catalogues ways to rectify some bad habits. If I feel really brave, I add a few items that might, in the words of prayer, “forgive” some unintentional “trespasses.” Then I follow my usual scenario: I methodically write out my resolutions on a tidy lined index card, place it in my purse, and promptly forget I put it there. That…

Many people snore but it does not mean that this condition should be considered normal. However, it is essential to consider “bad sleep” as a natural consequence of snoring. This is because the muscles within the throat will gradually lose strength as a person ages. In some cases, the muscles become weak before their due because of the person’s unhealthy lifestyle. If the muscles within the throat are weak, these will become less resistant to vibration.
It is also extremely important to understand that being overweight can be a contributing factor to snoring. Fats may deposit within the throat making the air passageway narrower. Cigarette smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can also predispose this condition. The harmful substances contained within the cigarettes can weaken the muscles and inflame the membranes within the throat and the nasal passageway. Alcohol is a relaxant thus it can make the muscles relax and become more susceptible to vibration.
You can prevent all of this mayhem by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It is encouraged to maintain a balanced diet and exercise regularly. If your snoring is infrequent and is only caused by a relaxant, you should consider wearing a snoring mouthpiece. These devices can give instant results. However, snoring mouthpieces may not be effective for all cases of snoring.
Stop snoring mouthpieces have been proven effective for mild to moderate cases of snoring. These devices reduce snoring by increasing the size of the air passageway. But there are cases of snoring that require Stop Snoring Fast And Find Better Sleep! continued »

Here’s your seven-day planner for great awakenings:
Monday: You need rewards. How about sex? It’s the heavy artillery of morning motivators and the only trump card that beats the second-most-compelling reward for a hard-working guy: sleeping forever.
“If the biggest reward in your morning is sleeping in, you’ll do it,” says Joseph Rock, Psy. D., a Cleveland psychologist. Poor wakers need to find a reward that can compete with the thrill of the pillow. “Do whatever you like, as long as it gets you going,” Rock says. “Have a meal you like for breakfast, have ‘sex with your wife.” Have sex with your wife over breakfast if that’s what it takes. Just make sure to schedule something every day that’ll motivate you to crawl out from under the comforter. Make one breakfast a week doughnut day (just one, Homer).
That new box of Peanut Butter…

iN THE HILL COUNTRY NORTH OF SAN Antonio, where the Texas flats give way to rocky bluffs of mesquite scrub, juniper, and live oak, Marco and Pauline Waterreus found their dream house. It was a roomy, wood-beamed ranch with horse sheds in back–the ideal place to put down roots with their four freckle-faced boys and growing menagerie of goats, horses, dogs, cats, hamsters, bunnies, and fish. Now that they were settled, Marco was preparing to leave his civilian job at Kelly Air Force Base and expand his own business as an architectural landscaper. He and Pauline were in love, and life was good. That was in January 1996.
A year later, their dream was history.
One day in November while tinkering with his lawn mower, Marco had trouble loosening a bolt with his left hand. Two months later, he started to limp. Pauline, a nurse,…

Cats have quietly crept into the number one spot as America’s favorite companion animal: In the past decade, they have come to outnumber dogs 66 to 58 million, according to the ASPCA. So why, when so many of us choose these amiable creatures to be our “best friend,” do many others-perhaps as many as one in four–continue to regard the cat with suspicion?
Ailurophobia, an actual fear of cats, is caused by an early traumatic experience involving a cat and requires therapy to overcome. But that differs from the general distrust and even disdain for cats that some people harbor.
Folk beliefs about felines are centuries old, rooted in a lack of understanding of the natural universe: A cat in a room with a dying or dead person will steal that person’s soul. If a cat sits with its back to the door, it will…

When I was growing up, a half dozen farms surrounded my family’s fruit orchards. Now all of those families have ceased farming except ours and one other. The neighborhood children have grown up and dispersed; few have anything to do with agriculture. “I wanted to farm like my grandfather and dad,” one of 4 neighbor’s sons once told me, “but not at the same prices they were getting 30 years ago!”
In the middle of America’s current agricultural crisis–in which less than one percent of the population works full time to grow our corn, wheat, fruits, and vegetables–it is proving difficult for many of the nation’s family farmers to survive, at least in their traditional role as food producers. The age-old remedies for disastrous farm prices–collective price-setting associations, national fraternal organizations like the Grange, and crop-sales cooperatives-have come up short, not that they were ever…
