    Diet and exercise play big roles. I do crunches and some other exercises to make my abs bulk up and stand out more. I also follow a strict diet to keep my body fat low.

    Strays in the cold

    That is so sad. I hate seeing it. I always want to scoop up every stray kitty I see and take them home with me. I often put food outside for cats in locations were I see them often, such as by the dumpster.

    Dry Skin

    My skin gets very dry and chapped in the winter. I always apply moisturizer often. At night, I often apply aquaphor to my face and the driest areas because it rally helps. I don't recommend applying aquaphor during the day though, as it does look greasy and noticeable on your skin.

    Yum. That sounds like such a heavenly smell. I wish I could find something like that. It would be nice to always have your home smelling good because of a fantastic all purpose cleaner.

    Do you do anything to try to relieve stress?

    Do you exercise, do you take deep breaths, read, etc? If there are things you do to relax. what are they? I am looking for more options. Right now, I do yoga. It helps a lot, but I am looking for other ideas to add to yoga to intensify the state of relaxation that I get.
