Good Habits

January 2nd, 2020
  • Try not to keep pools / puddles of water in the yard or inside the home. They’re breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
  • Before going to bed, put a pair socks in your sneakers. They might keep spiders and other bugs out of them.
  • It’s easy to put an item, such as a cup of coffee, a laptop, or a bag, temporally on the roof a car while getting in. However, it’s equally as easy to forget these items on the roof. Eventually, most people forget the item. The driver drives away, and the item(s) fall off the car. It’s a good habit to temporally place the item(s) on the ground.
  • Keep a daily journal.
  • Use recycled batteries. They save money, resources and trips to the store.
  • Don’t store batteries in a utility / junk draw that might have miscellaneous papers. If both the positive and negative sides touch something metal, such as a key chain, that might cause a spark and start a fire.
  • When using an extension cord, put the connections on top of something that is slightly off the ground. This way if water spills near the connection, there isn’t any chance of electrocution.
  • Measure twice, cut once.
  • As soon as the tread on a car’s tires starts getting low, purchase new tires. Tires with worn tread don’t stop well in the rain. Many people don’t realize their lack of traction and then get into an accident.
  • When saving a document to a computer, put the date at the end of the file name (filename-2019-12-07.xls). This creates a new file every time the document is saved and allows the user to see the changes they made to the document. Though, it’s very important to open the newest file each time the document is opened.
  • Let food cool off before starting to eat. Taking a bite out of a meal that’s to hot might cause a person chew faster and swallow faster, resulting in bites that are to large to swallow, causing a person to choke.
  • Check twice for motorcycles. Watch out for animals and pedestrians. When checking a cars blind spot, it’s important to keep a safe distance from any vehicle(s) a driver might be following, especially, in traffic situations and when entering a highway. If the vehicle in front stops quickly, while the drivers head is turned, there is a good chance of a fender bender.
  • Recycle and reuse anything that could possibly be recycled and reused.
  • Be wary of companies that have expensive video surveillance systems inside their business, but none in the parking lot. That might say the company could afford a surveillance system for the parking lot, but chose not to have the system installed. That also might say the company doesn’t prioritize their customers belongings and their employees safety, especially for those employees who work early and late hours.
  • It’s usually a good idea to remove a necklaces with a long thin medallion or pendant while playing sports. If the pendant part of the neckless jumbles around under a person’s shirt, enough to press the long end against their chest, and a ball hits the pendant, a serious injury could incur.
  • When leaving a house, apartment, condo, etc, it’s a good idea to lock the door from the outside with the key. If a person locks the door from the inside, via the nob, and closes it on their way out, they might forget the key. Then, they’ll get locked out.
