Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that the body needs to function properly. It is required for healthy skin, teeth and bones and it is essential for the brain to produce neurotransmitters such as dopamine and adrenalin. Our immune system also needs this vitamin to stay in tip-top shape.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that has been shown to slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease and other age related memory problems, especially when used in combination with vitamin E.

Every plant and nearly every animal on the planet can produce their own vitamin C. Humans are one of the exceptions. This means that we need to get our vitamin C from food sources such as oranges or broccoli. Without vitamin C, people develop a fatal disease called scurvy. In the past, this was common among sailors because it was difficult to keep fruits and vegetables on long sea journeys.

Squeezing a stress ball is an effective way to get rid of your frustrations. Being under stress can cause extra energy to build up in the body. The repetitive exercise of squeezing a stress ball can expend some of this excess energy and make you feel calmer. As a bonus, it builds up your wrist strength.

To make your own stress ball, you will need some small balloons. Using a scissors cut the neck off of a few of the balloons. Fill up one of the balloons with uncooked rice, small beans or beads. Now, take a second balloon and wrap it around the first one to cover the opening. Wrap several more balloons around the ball to thicken the wall and adjust the firmness to your liking. Squeeze away!

Everyone has their own unique viewpoint on a problem. It is difficult to put ourselves into other people's shoes and see the problem from their perspective, but this can lead us to find better solutions to the problem.

Think of a problem that you currently have that involves at least one other person. Get out some paper and write down a description of the problem from each person's point of view. Show each description to the person it corresponds with and have them comment on your accuracy. This exercise is a good way to see a problem from different perspectives and understand where the other people are coming from.
