ICE your phone

Put a listing into your cell phone's dialing directory that begins with three capital letters: I C E. This stands for "In Case of Emergency". Let's say you are found unconscious on the street with a broken arm and a bump on the head. Rescuers will look at your phone for the ICE directory, and might be able to notify a family member, coworker, or friend. See for more information.

If you can't fall asleep

Warm up your feet. Stand in the bathtub, use a hot water bottle wrapped in a towel, or put on thick socks, prewarmed if possible.

The RDA for Avocado is One Half

My sister and I joke that the MDA (minimum daily allotment) of avocado is one quarter of a ripe avocado (about 3 tablespoons). The RDA (recommended daily allowance) is HALF an avocado.

Vote. Exercise. Get Enough Sleep.

See? You're getting advice already.
