From looking good naked to easing up on the
wine, Kate Reardon's new book, Top Tips for
Life collates collective feminine wisdom
from around the globe.
How not to look tired: Try massaging your
ears with your thumbs and forefinger. Start at the
top and massage firmly all over your ears and ear
lobes. Do it whenever you need to perk up.
Sounds silly, but it works.
How to get food out of your teeth: On those
awful occasions when I've had food caught in my
teeth and haven't been near floss, I've used ... a
staple. Really. Punch the stapler once to release a
staple and use that.
How to be confident with your body: This is
especially important when naked in front of
someone special. Remember the rule of thumb:
look at your thumb now, and what do you see?
Just a thumb, right? Okay, so it might be a little
short, or the nail might not be filed to perfection,
but really, it's just a thumb. Now, when you are
naked in front of your boyfriend, just remember
your thumb, and remember that he's not seeing
your short bits or big bits or little bits or whatever
-- he's just praising the Lord that there is a naked
woman, no matter what she looks like, standing
in front of him.
How to improve your figure after 65: Buy a
new bra and have it fitted properly. We change.
How to ward off dowager's hump: To keep
your shoulder muscles supple and strong and
ward off dowager 's hump, do the following
Pilates exercise. Press your elbows into your waist
and hold your hands out in front of you as though
holding a tray.Then swivel your hands outwards,
keeping your elbows tight into your waist. Do six
or seven back and forth, whenever you think of it,
at least four times a day.
How to stop drinking the whole bottle of
wine: When you have had one or two glasses but
the rest of the bottle just keeps looking at you,
put the cork back in and put the bottle out of
sight, then go give your teeth a good brush. I
guarantee you won't fancy the wine then!
How to tell a gay friend that you don't like
her in that way:You could paraphrase the quote
from Jack Nicholson's character in As Good As It
Gets: "You know, if that did it for me, I'd be the
luckiest girl in the world."
What to do when friends hear you bitching
about them: Apologise. Tell them you've had a
bad day and even the people you love most are
getting on your nerves. Tell them it's about you
and not them.
How to deal with a friend who constantly
texts: Know someone who always uses her
phone in your company?"Oh, wonderful!"you say.
"You've remembered to bring your mobile! I have
some calls to make. I'm sure you won't mind."
How to help a friend who's going through
chemotherapy: Often people going through
treatment for cancer say they can't concentrate
on anything and can't read either. Story tapes or
CDs are a great gift. Your friend can listen to them
while lying down, without disturbing anyone,
and, for a while, forget about their illness.
How to make a telephone call to an ill
relative: The one thing that would mean more
than anything is to let them know how much you
love them.That's worth more than any amount of
being upbeat. You could also tell them little
amusing stories about things that happened to
you that day. Let them into your life a bit and out
of theirs, even for a few minutes.
How to extend the life of a phone battery:If
you really want to increase your time between
charges, try de-selecting things you don't need.
Bluetooth uses a lot of power, as does Wi-Fi, so if
you're not using them, switch 'em off. GPS? Kills
your battery, so don't use it if you don't need to.
