Keep your book with you. Keeping our book with you allows you to remember about it. Also if you find yourself bored and not busy you can pull it out and start reading.

Take your time to understand it. If you’re reading a book you don’t understand its pointless. So make the time to read it carefully so you will understand.

Don’t peak ahead. Never peak ahead even if you already know the ending. It will ruin the suspense leading up to certain details or events.



Keep a journal. Keeping a journal can help you understand different techniques to help you write. This is also a good way to look back on your mistakes and to show your progress.

Organize your thoughts. If they are organized it s easier to understand and write stories with. If you quickly write an idea down make sure you’re going to be able to understand it later.

Learn from other writers. Writing is not a competition and you can actually learn from others. It make seem weird but ask t=other writers about certain things you want to improve or that you have questions on.

Home remedies. Home remedies can help you save money while cleaning. It might be weird to have a cleaning supply made from scratch but you can research on really good home remedies that will work better than the kind from stores.

Use gloves. Cleaning can be disgusting and it can cause you to be sick if you don’t wear the right equipment. In certain situations you need more than gloves but always at least wear gloves.

Use a lint roller. Lint rollers can be used to collect many things. Some of your tools may not be good enough to pick up small particles but a lint roller will help because of its stickiness.

Invest in proper tools. You can’t clean right without certain tools. You also don’t want to use dirty tools so wash them properly instead of spreading the dirt.

Make a schedule. Like other things making a schedule can help keep you on track of when you need to do things.



Just go. If you want to explore just go and don’t look back. Everyone needs to experience exploring at least in some way and people cant stop others from doing so.

Check in but not too often. Most likely the reason you’re exploring is to get away. But you also want to make sure your family knows you are alright so check in every once in awhile.

Pack light and simple. Packing too heavy can cause you to become tired and you want to explore as much as possible. So to avoid heavy packing pack the things you really need.

Write everything out. A good way to remember the experience is to write everything. You may look back on the papers and see how much you loved it.

Take small risks. This will help you conquer your fears a bit but don’t go too overboard. It can help you to also get more comfortable when exploring.
