COLD NAP-CONCENTRATION PACK
As a corollary to Cool Tools page 248, "Take a Nap," use a flexible gel ice pack, cozily couched in an old sock, over your eyes. The flex allows the perfect shape easily molded with a quick squeeze. Naptime is a challenge for many because their mind will not slow down. The ice pack will focus your mind on your gently watering eyes.

SAVE YOUR HANDS IN WINTER
Soap strips the oils from your hands, causing your skin to dry, crack, peel and split, especially in winter. To cure this, avoid washing your hands with soap and water. Use Purell instead. You will be amazed at the difference.
