We are heavy into flu season and I can tell you one thing for sure that rings true for every single apartment resident out there…nobody wants to get sick.

How to Get Better Sleep in Your Apartment

Getting good sleep may be one of the most important factors on happiness, health, and hanging on to those youthful good looks that you have. If only if it were as easy as being a cat….

Living in an apartment gives you an opportunity to get better sleep than any other living situation. It’s warmer than a cardboard box.

It’s little known, but I am actually an expert on sleep. There are a few things out there that can help you sleep more soundly at night in your apartment.

Easy Excercise Around The Apartment To Avoid The Summer Heat

However I know that is hard for my folks in states like Texas that are really feeling the heat when they step out of their apartment. So what can you do for cardio around the apartment if it’s too hot to run or bike outside?
