How to of the Day
How to Avoid Sore Muscles
Performing any type of physical activity, including working out, can cause delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Most bouts of soreness should only last for 24-72 hours, but there are ways to almost entirely avoid DOMS. Boost your muscle health in advance by eating a healthy diet full of antioxidant-rich foods. When you are performing a physical task, take your time and keep an eye on your posture. After the task is done, take a soothing shower and loosen any sore muscles with a foam roller.
How to Recycle Rubber
Recycling rubber is great for the environment and helps produce useful products, such as rubber mulch for playgrounds or the infill for turf fields. To recycle your rubber, you can choose to donate it to places such as your local recycling facility or a tire retailer. Repurposing your rubber is often an even better option, and it can leave you with new useful items such as a tire swing, jar openers, or planters.
How to Invest
If you have even a little money saved up, investing it can help it grow. In fact, if you invest effectively enough, you could eventually live off the earnings and interest from your investments. Start with safer investments, such as bonds, mutual funds, and retirement accounts, while you're still learning the market. When you've built up enough money, you can move on to riskier investments, such as real estate or commodities, that have higher potential returns.
