Wednesday's Quick Hits

A new thread on the anonymous Whisper app has folks confessing what it’s like to work with their spouses. Although a few are positive, most people have issues working with their spouse. They include:

  • “I work with my husband. I love it until I make a mistake and it follows me home.”
  • “I work with my husband and it’s making me hate him more and more every day.”
  • “I want to call in sick to work every day, but I work with my husband and I don’t want him to have to lie to our boss.”
  •  “Working with my husband is a double-edged sword. We are always together so we don’t get any time away from each other, but with the kids at home we also don’t get any alone time together.”
  • “I love working with my husband. Seeing him all manly and in control is the most attractive thing to me.”
  • “I’m pretty sure my husband is the person stealing my food from the fridge at work.”

A bride-to-be took to the UK website Mumset to share her feelings after a longtime friend revealed that she wouldn’t be attending the woman’s wedding because she was going to see Adele.  The bride admits she felt “let down” and asked folks if she was “being unreasonable”.  For the most part commenters supported the bride, although at least one person said she’d have no problem skipping a wedding to go to a concert she really wanted to go to.

We know how important it is to eat a healthy diet full of fresh fruits and veggies and whole, unprocessed foods. But we can also fill our plates with foods that can help us avoid certain diseases, like Alzheimer’s. This form of dementia affects memory, thinking and behavior and according to the Alzheimer's Association, over five-million Americans currently have it and that number is expected to reach 16-million by 2050.  Alzheimer’s is also more common in women, two thirds of Americans with it are women. Since they still don’t know a lot about the causes of the disease, exercise and a heart-healthy diet can be helpful first steps toward prevention. Here are some foods you should add to your diet to reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s.

  • Sweet potatoes - They’re full of antioxidants, which can improve memory and help boost the brain's ability to learn.
  • Chickpeas - We need B vitamins for healthy brain development and chickpeas are high in B6, along with potassium and protein. So keep on munching on hummus - it’s practically a superfood.
  • Oysters - Vitamin B12 is also important for healthy brain development and it’s found in animal products like oysters, mussels, and clams, as well as liver and kidney meat. If you’re looking for vegetarian sources of B12, it’s in dairy products and eggs, and foods fortified with it, like some cereals and nut milks.
  • Lentils - These have lots of folate, also called vitamin B9. Folate helps with brain function and it’s linked to a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. You get 90% of your suggested daily intake of B9 in a cup of lentils.
  • Pistachios - Not only are these nuts filling and tasty, they’re also one of the foods richest in vitamin E, which is known for its brain health benefits.

So you thought you were winning the sunscreen game, applying and reapplying like mad. But somehow, when you got out of the sun you realized that those rays beat you and now you’re suffering from a nasty sunburn. We’ve all been there and it’s no fun. So this is how to treat and cover up the damage so you can get on with your life.

  • Treat the burn – Dermatologist Francesca Fusco recommends starting by popping an aspirin or Tylenol to reduce inflammation and help ease pain. Then you need a cool shower to get the grime and sunscreen residue off. And then it’s time for a cold compress soaked in a mix of milk and ice cubes to soothe your skin before it really starts to hurt.
  • Peel prevention – Now your skin needs moisture, so slather on lotions that have ceramides and antioxidants like vitamins C and E. You’ll want to soothe and soften the burn before it has a chance to peel and flake.
  • Color-correct the redness – Start with a light layer of green-tinted color-correcting primer to neutralize the redness. Just dab it in your most burned spots, and remember, sheer is the way to go so it doesn’t look caked on.
  • Conceal with care – Next, you’ll want to start applying a light layer of tinted moisturizer where your burn is most noticeable. And stick with cream-based makeup because powders could draw unwanted attention. Use concealer on the reddest parts, but get one with a yellow undertone to help it blend in better.
