EAR: do not put cotton swabs (e.g. Q-tips) in the ear canal

Cotton swabs stimulate wax and pack it against ear drum.  Wax is natural anti-infective.  Dab outside of ear canal with tissue then allow rest to air dry.  There is a warning on your cotton swab box telling you not to use it in the ear canal.  It may damage your ear drum and hearing and cause tinnitus or vertigo.  Don't put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear.  For more information:

SHOES: use ergonomic shoes for your daily routine

From a medical standpoint, your shoe is the most important past of your outfit and the part that most touches the earth. It is important to protect your joints and body with good cushion. However, while flip-flops are fine inside the home, outside the home they can put subtle repetitive strain on the body to keep them on your feet. For best results your usual and every day shoe should be well-cushioned and secure on your feet so you are strapped in. Invest on good shoes.
