Healthy Start - Time to Give Your Home a ReVamp
February 1st, 2010 8:22 AM

Here are a few Resolutions you can make to keep your home healthier this year:

Spring - Clean your gutters.  Backed-up gutters can wreak havoc on siding and cause flooding.  Scoop out leaves and debris with a trowel or hire professionals to do it.

Check Your Roof.  Wintry weather may have damaged the surface, and the first big rainstorm, left unchecked, could cause significant problems.  Replace shingles as needed.

Fireplace - If your fireplace got a workout during the winter months, give it a clean sweep.  Call in the experts to inspect and clean creosote buildup.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

And...Little things that can add years to your life

Eat  Chocolate - research says phenolics in chocolate may help lower the risk of heart disease.

Have a Banana - a diet rich in potassium helps prevent the risk of strokes.  Also try avocados, potatoes, tomatoes, spinach & citrus truits.

Read the Comics - laughter is a stress reduction for the whole body.

Whistle While you Work - studies show easy-listening music reduces stress levels.
