• Have allergy troubles? One thing you can do is to wash your sheets in hot water. If you have restricted the temperature on your water heater for safety and economy (good for you!), turn it back up once a week to wash your bed linens. Dust mites, dander and pollen on clothing are more likely to be removed in water over 140 degrees F. There are plenty of small and big changes you can make in your home.

• Dog walking is the new fitness tip. If you and Fido have put on a few pounds during the holidays, you’ll both benefit from daily walks. Taking your pet for three 10-minute walks a day will allow your dog to exercise its tensions away, while you get in 30 minutes of aerobic activity.
