This is even the perfect improvement for a fitness junkie as this can help loosen muscles before big workouts. Hot tubs can be used during any time of the year even during the winter with snow on the ground. This can be a great way to feel the cool as well as be warm. Be careful when going into the hot tub when it is cold as ice can form from the water knocked out leaving a slippery ice patch.

While this isn’t a home improvement project it can actually help with your brain function. Switching up routines doesn’t allow the brain to go into autopilot when doing something which increases brain function. This does not mean to switch up the furniture on a daily basis but a few times a year can make a difference. There were times when furniture used to be quite heavy as well as awkward to move. There are now pieces of fabric that you can put under the legs of a heavy object which make it extremely easy to move. Other simples things that can increase brain function are brushing your teeth with your opposite hand as well as plenty of other routine things.
