Maybe dry skin and static cling are annoying during the winter months?

Here are only a few more reasons to consider a humidifier during the cold, dry season.

Humid

Heal faster: Whether it be a cold or allergies, a humidifier keeps your nasal passages lubricated, which helps speed up the healing process when you’re under the weather. For people with bad allergies, there are humidifiers that are specially designed to purify the air as well.

Fewer nosebleeds: Another reason keeping your nasal passages moist and lubricated is helpful in preventing nosebleeds. If you’re regularly experiencing nosebleeds due to your dry climate, it’s worth a try. Many people have found that it makes a big difference.

Support beautiful skin: Soothe dry skin by sleeping with a humidifier on through the night. In the morning, you’ll not only notice that your face looks suppler, and your hands and lips won’t feel dry and dehydrated either.

*The type of humidifier you choose depends on your preferences, budget, and the extent of the area in which you want to add moisture. There are five types of humidifiers:

  • central humidifiers
  • evaporators
  • impeller humidifiers
  • steam vaporizers
  • ultrasonic humidifiers

For the best results, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends that the humidity level in your home not exceed 50 percent. (EPA)

A Random Story

November 20, 2012

In our busy lives do we tend to forget that we should slow down and remind ourselves that all people deserve to be treated with respect and kindness.

Let’s share a touching story:

In the days when an ice cream cone cost much less, an 8 year old girl entered a cafe and sat at a table.
A waitress approached and asked her what she would like. The girl asked, How much is an ice cream cone with two scoops? ”

“twenty five cents,” replied the waitress.

The little girl pulled her hand out of her pocket and counted her coins. “How much is just one scoop of ice cream?” People were waiting to be seated as the waitress was becoming noticeably impatient. “15 cents!” she said sternly. The little girl again counted the coins. “I will have one scoop please.”

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The little girl finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left.

When the waitress came back, she began clearing the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw. There, placed neatly next to the empty dish was .10 cents-her tip.

What did you get from the story?

“Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and kindness, especially those whom we perceive can bring little or no value to our lives.”
