Do you struggle to fall asleep, stay asleep, or are you waking up too early? Is getting deep satisfying sleep just out of the question... are you waking up tired no matter what? I do, see for most of my life, I’ve struggled with insomnia. And everyone who does knows how it can suck the life out of you. Studies show that poor sleep can have negative effects on daily physical functioning, causing chronic fatigue, exhaustion, reduced sex drive, increased pain sensitivity, and more... And if left untreated, over time chronic insomnia can increase your risk for obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other serious health problems. And while millions of people are resorting to sleeping pills every night, experts warn that’s extremely dangerous.
As a lifelong handyman, I’ve seen my fair share of “multi-tools”. Some are excellent lifelong tools… but most are gimmicky garbage. They’re either completely worthless (none of the “functionalities” work), or they fall apart after a few weeks of mild use. Bah. So, when my friend gifted me a new multi-tool called Keyzmo that claims it’s “an entire toolbox fit into a small key-sized device”, I was naturally skeptical… However, my friend insisted it could handle all of my daily tasks in a pinch. He said he picked up a pair just to test out after finding it on Facebook. First, he was going to give it to his son, but after trying it, he thought someone like me would appreciate it even more… So I attached it to my keychain - mostly to please my buddy. But after a few weeks of using it, I have to admit: He was right.
Did you know? Your toothbrush likely has 100 million nasty germs crawling all over it right now. The other day one of my close friends asked me the STRANGEST question: “When was the last time you cleaned your toothbrushes?” “WHAT?! CLEANED my toothbrushes??” I asked. “Aren’t toothbrushes self-cleaning? You just put the toothpaste on them and that cleans them, right?” Turns out, I couldn’t be more wrong. Apparently, her dentist told her that your toothbrush is often the third dirtiest thing in your house. (Just after your soaked-in-filth dish sponge.)
If you've ever had a phone or laptop die on you unexpectedly then you know the dreading feeling of losing all your photos and videos forever. Unfortunately it actually happens more often than not. Over 40% of people lose files every year, and 140,000 hard drives crash EVERY WEEK in the United States alone... not to mention accidentally dropping devices, water damage, etc. That’s millions of precious memories... lost forever. To recover them, you either have to figure it out on your own or pay a technician $300 - $500+ with no guarantees! This is exactly why you should ALWAYS be backing up your files – but hardly anyone does. And honestly, I understand why – it takes a TON of effort to back up all your most important files! The good news all that's about to change thanks to this revolutionary new device.

He said he picked up a couple to test out after discovering them on Facebook. First, he was going to give one to his son, but after trying it, he thought someone like me would appreciate it even more…
Nobody will deny that reusable shopping bags are a great idea – they’re sturdier, cheaper and better for the environment. But as I’ve learned, they’re not perfect… For starters, my collection of reusable bags is a total mess – they’re all different colors, made of different materials, and all different sizes. And speaking of sizes, most of them are far too small to carry a decent amount of groceries from our weekly family shopping trip. (Unless I use 30 of them…) And of course, my mess of reusable bags do nothing to help me stay organized while actually shopping. I end up throwing everything together in random piles – which means unpacking my cart and putting everything away at home takes ten times longer than it should. Can you relate?
My headaches started in my early 40s. Of course, I’d had headaches before – but when they began happening daily, I started to freak out. I assumed it was stress at first… but the pain simply didn’t stop. In fact, it got worse. Eventually, my headaches felt like they were in control of my entire life. My work suffered. I felt less present with my family. I was completely drained of energy all the time. After a few months of mild, but constant pain every day, I went to the doctor… who gave me drugs to ease the symptoms. I accepted this solution at first – what else was I going to do? But after a few years, I got extremely tired of taking pills every day. They made me feel groggy and weak – and with each pill I popped, it became harder and harder to imagine ever getting off of them.
Quick question: Do you like loose, wrinkled bed sheets that fall off the mattress while you sleep? Didn’t think so. For some of us, this is a minor annoyance… but for people like me, it’s actually a serious problem – all it takes is one little wrinkle in my bed sheets and my sleep is disturbed! On the other hand, there’s no better feeling than plopping down into a perfectly made hotel bed. I just LOVE that crisp, clean feeling of sleeping on perfectly tight sheets – don’t you?! I’ve always wanted to know the secret to getting them so perfect… but I tried everything, and until recently, I was still stuck struggling with wrinkled sheets that fall off in the middle of the night.
Whether I'm working at home, or binging shows in bed, one thing that always gets in my way is my phone constantly slipping and sliding off of whatever I precariously lean it on. Every time I sat down to eat, I would have to play out a balancing act of trying to get my phone to stay put on whatever was on the dinner table. Of course, it would never work, and time and time again I'd have to take a break from my messy sandwich and wobble my phone back up, all while trying not to get mustard all over my new phone screen (which never went well either). On top of that, while working at my computer desk, I would find myself reaching for my phone every two minutes just to be able to see what notifications were popping up. This all changed when I went to the Consumer Electronics Shows (CES) this past year.
Ouch! If you experience foot pain like I do, then you’re going to LOVE what just happened in San Diego… because someone finally stood up and did something about the “foot pain epidemic” that’s been crushing the sensitive bones in our feet for years. Yeah, that’s right – I’m calling it an epidemic. Why? Because even though 8 in 10 Americans experience foot pain, your only options for relieving it are either unreasonably expensive or completely ineffective...
If you get headaches and you’re tired of taking drugs or suffering through the pain… the story of Elizabeth Hayes could change your life. Elizabeth was recently struggling with a 12-hour migraine… and getting desperate. "I had a migraine start almost twelve hours ago," she says in her Facebook post. "About an hour ago it was at an unbearable limit. I had exhausted all of my drugs and tricks I usually use to ease my migraines… to no avail." That’s when she found an unusual solution that completely changed her life.
