Get More from Your Workout Routine

No one starts a workout routine hoping for mediocre results. So, how can you get the
maximum benefit from every workout?
Do some heavy lifting: The easiest way to boost your metabolism
is to build muscle. Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
Dr. Jacob Wilson recommends adding resistance training to your
workout to increase your metabolic rate and burn fat more
efficiently. Don’t want to wait in line for the weight machines?
Grab some free weights or use your own body weight for resistance;
both techniques activate a wider range of muscles than
a machine.
Exercise your heart: Just because you’ve started lifting weights doesn’t
mean you can forget about cardiovascular training. Cardio burns calories,
improves heart health, and can be a great stress reliever. Adding high-intensity cardio bursts
to your resistance training can help preserve lean muscle mass and maximize fat loss.
Get into the groove: Blasting your favorite upbeat playlist is a great way to get your blood
pumping during a workout. But studies show that listening to music with a slower tempo
immediately after exercising helps your body relax and recover faster. Proper recovery is vital
to getting the most from your workouts.

Trade in Your Tech

Technology is constantly evolving, and the promise of new gadgets is always on the horizon. Here are three ways to get rid of your used, working electronics. Sell: Selling old devices directly on sites, such as eBay or Amazon, will likely get you the biggest payout, even with depreciation. But it can be a bit of a hassle; it’s up to you to create a listing, pack and ship the device, and deal with potentially flaky buyers. Trade-in: Companies like Gazelle and NextWorth let you trade your obsolete gadget for cash that you can put toward something new, and many will send you a shipping kit with a box and label. Some of these services offer only gift cards, but others pay you via check or PayPal. Donate: Want to fill your wallet with karma instead of cash? Schools, libraries, and charities are often eager to take old tech off your hands. Check with your local organizations for details. Remember

6 Easy Ways to Save Water at Home

The average American household uses more than 300 gallons of water a day, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that 40 out of 50 states will experience some form of water shortage over the next 10 years. Reduce your family’s water use by following these simple water-smart practices in your home: • Invest in water-efficient household products, such as shower heads, faucets, toilets, lawn irrigation controllers, and appliances. Look for the EPA’s WaterSense label before you buy! • Avoid flushing the toilet unnecessarily. Dispose of tissues, insects, and other such waste in the trash can. • Fix all dripping faucets; replacing the worn washers is often the quickest and cheapest remedy. • Use a timer to avoid watering your lawn and plants longer than necessary. Check your sprinklers for leaks, and redirect the spray so you’re not watering the house, driveway, or sidewalks. • Defrost food in the refrigerator overnight or in the microwave instead of running cold water over the frozen food. • Operate washing machines and dishwashers only when fully loaded.
