An overly full fridge can lead to warm spots and the fridge door can act in the same way. You want to avoid keeping things on the door that can spoil quickly, mainly dairy. The door is constantly opened and closed exposing it to the warm air of the room. If you're like me standing there like a zombie staring blindly for something to eat at 2 a.m those items on the door have spent too much time in the warm air. Over the course of the day, this surprisingly adds up.

We've spent a lot of time off our feet and this hasn't been the healthiest thing in the world.

It's become commonplace to now rip on the idea of setting a New Year's resolution and the fact that you have a very good chance of not sticking with it. I used to be one of those people and I do recognize the statistics that show the chances of staying with a resolution are slim. I still believe that setting them, in a specific way, though, can still be very effective.

Coke released Coca-Cola Life and Pepsi has Pepsi Next. Both products eliminate the use of high fructose corn syrup and use stevia as a sweetener instead of artificial sweeteners. There is somehow the confusion that just because something uses real sugar, or cane sugar that it automatically becomes like a health elixir. They're far from it.

You only use what you need at the time and the rest can remain frozen. If you think of how quickly produce spoils I'd be pretty sure you've thrown away your fair share of it over the years.

As much as people say our human interaction has become limited due to our use of phones the truth is when you're in an environment you can embrace, the human connection will take over. Our phones have helped bridge the gap in getting us where we want to be with the people we want to be with, whether it's concerts, restaurants, movies or sporting events. The human connection and experience is still the goal, it's just that phones help us accomplish this a little faster.
