How To Manage Your Time

Time management is such an important skill to have. Being able to effectively manage your time has the ability to affect your life in many positive ways, regardless of whether you are working, studying, etc.

I found that I was good at managing my time in high school when other students had to stay up late to finish their homework, but I was done before dinner and maintained good grades. Honestly, I just wanted to be able to relax for the rest of the night. Then I started working online and had to take my time management skills even further since the only thing that mattered was my productivity.

Now that you have some back-story, let’s get into it. I hope that the following tips will help you manage your time more effectively.  Continue reading

How To: Whiten Your Teeth With Activated Charcoal

Anyone who has ever touched activated charcoal knows that this stuff has a weird way of turning everything black.
