How to of the Day
How to Deal with Attention Seeking Adults
Frequent dramatic displays, exaggerated stories, and over-the-top conflict are often the signs of an attention seeker. If someone is bothering you with these behaviors, the best thing to do is to ignore their antics. Strong personal boundaries can help you stay calm and in control. If the attention seeker is a loved one, however, you might want to see if you can help them overcome their behaviors with the assistance of a mental health professional.
How to Get Rid of Milia
Milia are tiny white bumps that can afflict your skin at any age, though they are most common in infants. Milia pose no threat to you and are mostly a cosmetic annoyance. In most cases, they will go away on their own. If they are really bothering you, however, there are a few things you can do to encourage the process and speed it up. Try some home remedies or consult a skin-care professional to begin your journey towards brighter skin!
How to Buy a Stand Up Paddle Board
Stand up paddleboarding is currently one of the fastest growing watersports out there. There are so many ways to do it, so finding the right stand up paddleboard (SUP) can seem like a complicated task. But it doesn’t have to be! Consider what type of boarding you like to do, your size, and additional SUP features when choosing your board.
How to Teach Someone to Love Themselves
Self-love is sometimes dismissed as selfish or arrogant. However, it’s a vital and often overlooked aspect of mental health. If you want to teach someone to love themselves, help them build their self-esteem, and provide tips on keeping negative thoughts in check. In addition, explain how they can put self-love into practice by maintaining their physical and emotional well-being.
How to Recycle Cables
The rapid advancement of consumer technology makes life a little more convenient every day. Unfortunately, it also means that accessories from outdated devices have a tendency to pile up in a hurry. Companies like Best Buy and Apple will usually be happy to take unused electrical cables off your hands and ensure that they’re properly recycled. If you’d rather see them go to a cause that’s closer to home, you could also try donating them to an area STEM program, letting friends or family members pick through them, or stripping and selling the raw materials for a small profit.

Low-Cholesterol Recipes: Homemade Pickled Ginger (Gari)

4.76 / 5 Stars | 21 Reviews

by Phoena

"Pickled ginger is called gari or amazu shoga in Japanese. It's served with sushi or sashimi and eaten between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your taste buds and enhance the flavors. It's also great with Century Eggs - a Chinese delicacy. You can find prepared pickled ginger in pink or white at most Asian markets but I preferred to make my own and share with family and friends."
