4 easy ways to safely whiten your teeth at home

Your smile is worth a bunch.  Quite precious, if you ask me. Some people believe it can improve your business. Although the preceding statement is reaching, one study by Penn State University found that people who smile more appear to be more likeable, courteous, and even competent. No need to be overly academic on this, though. I think we can all agree a little smile is not bad for anyone. But, the truth is, all the exhortation in the world can’t get anyone to flash a smile if the set of teeth under those lips is nearer in colour to the earth. Yellowish teeth, caused by ageing, tobacco, drug side effects, not paying attention to your teeth, will deprive you of partaking in the countless joys of a smile.

What your body needs from your mattress

Do you wake up tired or achy? I'm willing to bet your mattress is the leading culprit. Your bed is the most important piece of furniture in your home. If you get the recommended 8 hours of sleep per night, you will spend at least 1/3rd of your life in that bed. But only a few of us think about how our bed helps to better our lives every day. What your body needs from your mattress 1: Comfort Comfort (or as you may hear it called pressure relief). If a mattress is too hard, it can cause stress to your body. This cuts off circulation and pinches nerves (the “pins and needles” feeling you sometimes get after staying in one position for a long time). If you change your sleeping position often, your sleep is fragmented, and you don’t get into the deeper stages ...
