This is my all time favorite <3 For centuries women in the tropics have used this precious oil to get those long shiny locks. Take 1 to 2 tablespoons (use your judgment depending on length of hair) of virgin coconut oil and massage into damp hair from roots to ends before bed and leave in over night. You may want to wrap hair in a shower cap or place a towel over your pillow to prevent staining of your sheets. In the morning wash hair as usual (I recommend an herbal shampoo) You will love how shiny and easy to manage your hair will be and the smell is amazing!
Kefir is a fermented drink. It can be made from the milk of any ruminant animal, such as a cow, goat, or sheep. It is slightly sour and carbonated due to the fermentation activity of the symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast that make up the “grains” used to culture the milk (not actual grains, but a grain-like matrix of proteins, lipids, and sugars that feed the microbes). The various types of beneficial microbiota contained in kefir make it one of the most potent probiotic foods available. Kefir contains high levels of vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, vitamin K2, biotin, folate, and enzymes. Kefir also contains a wide variety of bioactive compounds, including organic acids and peptides that contribute to its health benefits.
The Simpsons is probably the defining show of the last 30 years of TV. Although a lot of this could be clouded by nostalgia, the early seasons of the show were probably the best seasons of TV ever produced, period. But - while there are hints of the greatness to come - that first season of the Simpsons is really, really weird. The animation quality was all over the place (mostly bad), Homer's voice still had that vague Walter Matthau tone, and the writing staff hadn't quite nailed the rapid-fire jokes and huge roster of characters that would define the show later on. Instead, the episodes are hyper-grounded and most of the characters aren't all that comedic - Homer is a stern dad who's a little irresponsible, but he's nowhere near the buffoonish guy Smithers would one day make Head Bee Guy. Episode plots range from Lisa suffering from depression, Homer nearly committing suicide - only to be pulled from the brink by his sincere belief in the importance of safety (which led to Homer becoming the Nuclear Power Plant's safety inspector, something that would become a joke pretty much instantly in later seasons), Homer worrying that everyone ELSE in his family is too embarrassing, and Marge and Homer's marriage nearly falling apart TWICE (via the bowling instructor and the stripper). It's certainly not BAD, but it's pretty wildly different from what The Simpsons would be best known for, and is definitely skippable. There are a few gems in there, but generally no one ever gets excited when they're watching Simpsons reruns and it's the Babysitter Bandit episode.
The most important thing you can do is stand up every 20 minutes or so. Gretchen Reynolds, a reporter on exercise research for the New York Times, wrote a book condensing health studies down to their most essential parts. One of the key takeaways from her research was this emphasis on standing up and the golden 20-minute mark. Even if you can’t go for a walk or even take a bathroom break that often – you can make it a point to stand up every 20 minutes for about a minute, and then sit back down.
