I do a lot of things with my other hand--I'm lefthanded and growing up in a righthanded world I learned to use both hands--I often use my right hand for brushing my teeth.

Also like the idea of eating an apple before a meal--I usually eat a mid-afternoon snack, mostly fruit, and then when I get in from work I have a glass of cold milk before getting started on fixing supper. I don't eat as much for supper as I used to because I am not starving.

Speaking of music and "the beat": When I had my MRI's this past Wednesday (45 minutes in the machine with all that noise) I kept tensing up--the more I tried to relax the more tense I became. So, I decided to concentrate on the different sounds that the machine was making and listend to "the beat"--I became very relaxed--not exactly music, but it worked (lol)!

Some good ideas!

That's interesting about the beat sounds ..... I had an MRI once and they put these huge headphones on me and piped in music,,,, it was really nice,, I could still hear that thomping but it wasn't so bad..... I just now close my eyes and put myself in a zen mode and drift off ..... noise and all.... (mind above matter)

Great idea, milk before dinner,,, (I drink skim so I could do that...) thanks!

The only time I chew gum in public is when I am traveling on an airplane. Helps keep my sinuses cleared and pressure from building up in my ears. Otherwise I chew it sometimes when I'm driving--and I only chew sugar-free gum.

LOL--I hate being on the telephone with someone who is chewing gum--smacking their gum; sounds twice as loud and very annoying!

They gave me ear plugs but I don't think they really blocked out much noise--if they did I would hate to be in there without them!
