How to Drive Long Distances Alone

Posted: 16 Jan 2020 08:00 AM PST

If you're feeling anxious about taking a big trip alone, look at the drive as an opportunity to enjoy some time to yourself. As long as you plan for traveling and prepare for emergencies, you should safely manage the drive. Pack snacks, dress comfortably, and bring your favorite music. Then, relax and enjoy the solitude as you put the miles behind you.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Getting Ready for a Trip

  1. Plan your route and include stopping points. Decide which main roads you'll take to get to your destination and pick any places of interest you want to see along the way. Even if you're trying to drive straight to your destination, make notes of rest stops along the route. It's important to plan even if you'll be using your GPS since you might lose the signal or run out of battery.[1]

    • If you're driving for several days, make an itinerary for how far you want to drive each day. For example, you might want to drive 7 hours for the first day, but only drive 5 hours the next.
  2. Pack your car with everything you need for the trip. In addition to your luggage, bring a little cash along with your credit cards. Remember to have your license and proof of car insurance in your vehicle. It's also a good idea to pack physical maps even if you'll be relying on your car or phone's GPS.[2]

    • If you're crossing borders, check that your passport is still valid and pack it in a safe place in the car.
    • Don't forget your phone charger, especially if you're using the phone a lot to navigate.
  3. Schedule a car inspection before your trip. In the week before you travel, get your car looked at by a mechanic and ask them if there are any issues to fix. Getting your car in shape could prevent mechanical emergencies during your trip. You might need to get an oil change, top up the fluids, replace an air filter, or get new tires, for instance.[3]

    • Do this well before your trip so you can schedule additional maintenance as needed.
  4. Load the car with emergency car supplies. No one wants to experience a flat tire or road emergency, but it's best to be prepared. Pack a spare tire along with any other supplies you might need. For example, if you're traveling through a hot location and worry that your car might overheat, pack a jug of water or coolant. Consider traveling with:[4]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 4 Version 3.jpg
    • Jumper cables
    • Flashlights
    • First aid kit
    • Simple tool kit
    • Blanket or sleeping bag
  5. Inform family and friends about your plans. Since you'll be traveling alone, it's important to let people close to you know where you'll be. Tell them your route, let them know when you'll be passing through each destination, and tell them you'll contact them along the way.[5]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 5 Version 3.jpg
    • Email the info or write it down so your family or friends can refer back to the information.

[Edit]Making the Drive Enjoyable

  1. Wear comfortable clothes so you feel relaxed. Avoid dressing in tight, restrictive clothing since you'll be sitting for a long time. Choose light, loose fabrics that allow you to move easily. Layer your clothes so you can stay warm or cool during your drive.[6]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 6 Version 3.jpg
    • If you start driving in the morning when it's cool, you might want a fleece jacket. You can remove it later when you warm up or drive to a hotter destination.
  2. Listen to your favorite music. Load an MP3 player with a variety of your favorite music or pack plenty of CDs. Enjoying music is a great way to pass the time during a long drive.[7]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 7 Version 3.jpg
    • If you don't like listening to music in the car, find an audiobook or podcast to enjoy.
  3. Pack healthy snacks to munch on. Keep easy-to-eat snacks in the passenger seat so you can eat something when you feel hungry. Snacking on something healthy is also a good way to stay awake since it will help you focus on something. Avoid snacking on salty foods, which can dehydrate you. Good snack options include:[8]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 8 Version 3.jpg
    • Granola bars
    • Unsalted nuts
    • Rice cakes
    • Fresh fruit and vegetables
    • Crackers
  4. Bring refreshing beverages to drink so you stay hydrated. Water is one of the best drinks for a long car ride, but you could also bring coffee, tea, caffeinated drinks, or juice. Avoid drinks with a lot of added sugar, such as energy drinks, which could make you jittery.[9]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 9 Version 3.jpg
    • If you'd like the drinks to stay cool, put them into a small cooler and place it near the bottom of the passenger street so it's easy to get to.
  5. Don't look at the clock to track how far you've driven. If you're in a hurry to get to your destination, glancing at the clock every few minutes will only make you more stressed. Make a point of not looking at the clock. Instead, relax and try to enjoy the drive.[10]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 10 Version 3.jpg
    • Instead of focusing on how much longer you have in the car, think about how many miles you've put behind you.

[Edit]Staying Safe While Driving Alone

  1. Take a popular route with major roads. Stick to your travel itinerary and avoid taking shortcuts. If you do need to take a detour, follow the detour signs closely. Don't take unmarked roads or routes that you're unsure of.[11]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 11 Version 3.jpg
    • Stay on main roads so you can stop and ask for help if necessary.
    • Adjust your travel plans if the weather worsens and you don't feel comfortable driving.
  2. Follow the local traffic laws and drive below the speed limit. Always wear your seat belt and be aware of your surroundings. Avoid speeding or breaking local traffic laws. Instead, drive cautiously and safely.[12]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 12 Version 3.jpg
    • If you're driving into a foreign country, it's especially important to read about their driving laws since they might be very different than the ones you're used to.
  3. Pull off and take a short nap if you feel drowsy. Find a safe, well-lit location and park your car. Lock your doors and close your eyes for 20 to 30 minutes. It's better to take a little time to rest than risk getting into an accident by driving drowsy.[13]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 13.jpg
    • Start your journey after a good night's sleep so you're less likely to be tired on the drive.
    • Drink something caffeinated before you rest so you wake up feeling more energized.
  4. Avoid talking on the phone or texting while you drive. It's illegal to talk on a cell phone or text in many areas, so don't use your phone or you may get a ticket. Talking on the phone or texting distracts you when you should be focusing on your surroundings.[14]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 14.jpg
    • If you do need to take a call, pull off to a safe spot and have your conversation.
    • Having a hands-free phone call is just as distracting as holding the phone up to your ear, so avoid using a headset to call someone.
  5. Take rest breaks to recharge. Getting out of the car for a few minutes to stretch your legs and use the restroom is a simple way to break up the drive. You can use these short breaks to contact friends or family and tell them where you're at.[15]
    Drive Long Distances Alone Step 15.jpg
    • Stop at designated rest stops or well-lit businesses. Avoid taking a break on the side of the road or in an unsafe area.

[Edit]Tips

  • Pay attention to signs that show how far away the next service station is and don't wait until your gas tank is on empty before refueling.
  • Carry a gasoline container with a gallon of gasoline, in case your car runs out before you are able to reach a service station. Make sure you read all the instructions on the canister and store it safely.
  • Keep your mind engaged by playing the alphabet game. Repeat the alphabet by taking one letter from each sign, billboard, advertising on trucks, or license plate.

[Edit]Warnings

  • Remember that each state and country has different laws. If you're traveling across borders, do some research about the local rules of the road.
  • Don't share personal details about yourself or your travel plans to strangers.

How to Make a Fluffy 3 Egg Omelette

Posted: 16 Jan 2020 12:00 AM PST

Omelettes are a great way to make a quick filling meal, but they can seem heavy. To make a light, fluffy omelette that's still full of delicious flavor, separate 3 eggs. Beat the egg whites until you trap lots of air in them and they're stiff. Then, fold the yolks back in. When you spread this light batter in a skillet, the omelette will puff as it cooks and you'll be rewarded with the fluffiest 3-egg omelette ever!

[Edit]Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup (55 g) of shredded Gruyère or cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon (15 g) of unsalted butter
  • Minced fresh chives, optional

Makes 1 omelette

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Mixing the Eggs

  1. Separate the yolks and whites of 3 eggs between 2 bowls. Carefully crack an egg and let the egg white fall into 1 of the bowls. Place the yolk in the other bowl. Separate the 2 remaining eggs so you have the whites in 1 bowl and the yolks in the other.[1]

    Make a Fluffy 3 Egg Omelette Step 1 Version 2.jpg
    • Ensure that the bowl for the egg whites is completely clean and free from grease since you'll be beating the whites. You'll get the most volume if the bowl is spotlessly clean.
  2. Add salt and pepper to the yolks and beat them with a fork. Use a generous pinch of salt and pepper and combine the yolks until they're blended. This only takes a few seconds.[2]

    • Set the bowl of yolks aside while you beat the egg whites.
  3. Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Use a stand or hand mixer with clean whisk attachments to beat the egg whites on high speed. Beat the eggs until they stiffen and become firm and glossy.[3]

    • If you don't have a stand or hand mixer, use a clean whisk.
  4. Fold the egg yolks into the stiff egg whites. Spoon half of the seasoned egg yolks into the bowl with the whites. Use a spatula to gently lift the egg whites up and over the yolks. Then, add the rest of the yolks and keep folding them in until the mixture is a uniform color.[4]

    • It's important to fold the whites gently so you don't lose the air that you beat into them. This helps the omelette become fluffy as it cooks.

[Edit]Cooking the Omelette

  1. Melt 1 tablespoon (15 g) of butter in a nonstick skillet. Turn the burner to medium and heat the unsalted butter until it melts. Hold the handle and slowly swirl the pan a little so the melted butter coats the bottom of the skillet.[5]

    Make a Fluffy 3 Egg Omelette Step 5 Version 2.jpg
    • If you don't want to use butter, substitute olive oil, coconut oil, or ghee.
    • Use a skillet to cook the omelette.
  2. Spread the egg mixture in the skillet. Gently spoon the eggs into the skillet and use the back of a spoon or an offset spatula to spread the mixture evenly across the pan. The eggs will immediately begin to cook in the hot skillet.[6] below a hot broiler. Broil the omelette for 2 to 4 minutes before you fold it over and serve it.}}

  3. Cover the skillet and cook the omelette for 4 minutes. Turn the burner down to medium-low and let the omelette cook for 4 minutes without moving it or flipping it. If the top of the omelette looks like it's cooking too quickly, turn the burner down to medium-low or low.[7]
    Make a Fluffy 3 Egg Omelette Step 7 Version 2.jpg
    • It's important to cover the skillet so the top of the omelette cooks. If you leave the skillet uncovered, the top may be soupy or runny even though the bottom of the omelette is cooked.
  4. Scatter cheese over the omelette and cook it for 1 more minute. If you'd like to give the omelette a more savory flavor, sprinkle 1/2 cup (55 g) of shredded Gruyère or cheddar cheese over the top. Put the lid back on the skillet and let the omelette cook for 1 more minute so the cheese melts and the omelette sets.[8]

    • If you don't want to add the cheese, just cook the omelette for the extra minute.
  5. Slide the omelette onto a plate and fold it over in half. Turn off the burner and slowly slide the omelette onto the plate. Use a spatula to help the omelette if it sticks at all. Then, use the spatula to flip half of the omelette onto the other side. Scatter freshly minced chives over the omelette and serve the omelette while it's still hot and fluffy.

    • You can refrigerate leftover omelette in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Keep in mind that the omelette may lose some of its volume the longer it's stored.

[Edit]Trying Variations

  1. Substitute your favorite type of cheese for the Gruyère or cheddar. Omelettes are easy to customize, so use a different type of cheese if you like. Consider using 1/2 cup (55 g) of any of these cheeses in your fluffy omelette:[9]
    Make a Fluffy 3 Egg Omelette Step 10 Version 2.jpg
    • Emmentaler
    • Swiss
    • Goat cheese
    • Pepperjack
    • Feta
    • Smoked gouda
  2. Add a spoonful of dairy to the egg yolks for an extra creamy flavor. Give the omelette a creamy, tangy texture by adding 1 tablespoon (12 g) of sour cream, plain yogurt, or Greek yogurt. Mix the dairy into the egg yolks before you fold them into the stiff egg whites.[10]
    Make a Fluffy 3 Egg Omelette Step 11 Version 2.jpg
    • You could use reduced-fat dairy if you're looking to cut a few calories.
  3. Stir herbs into the yolks to lighten the flavor of the omelette. To give a fresh flavor to your omelette, mix 2 tablespoons (7.5 g) of freshly minced herbs into the egg yolks before you fold them into the whites. Try using basil, parsley, chives, marjoram, or a combination of these.[11]
    Make a Fluffy 3 Egg Omelette Step 12 Version 2.jpg
    • If you'd rather use dried herbs, add up to 1 tablespoon of dried herbs.
  4. Top the cooked omelette with vegetables or meat before you fold it. Although you can easily add diced, cooked vegetables and meat, such as mushrooms, ham, or peppers, wait until you're ready to fold the omelette before you scatter them. The weight of these ingredients will make the fluffy omelette fall quickly. Consider adding any of these ingredients just before serving:[12]
    Make a Fluffy 3 Egg Omelette Step 13 Version 2.jpg
    • Cooked bacon
    • Smoked salmon or trout
    • Slices of avocado
    • Fresh spinach
    • Caramelized onions

[Edit]Tips

  • You might find recipes that recommend adding baking soda to your omelette to get a fluffy rise. Unfortunately, relying on the chemical reaction can give your omelette a slightly metallic taste.

  • Mixing bowls

[Edit]Quick Summary

How to Use CBD Oil for Massage

Posted: 15 Jan 2020 04:00 PM PST

CBD oil, or cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in the hemp and marijuana plants. While the research is still in its early stages, there's promising evidence that CBD oil can help relieve pain and inflammation from conditions such as arthritis when it's applied to the skin.[1] Many people who have tried CBD oil massage also swear by it as a remedy for tense or sore muscles. If you're interested in CBD oil massage, purchase a balm, lotion, or cream from a reputable manufacturer and try it on yourself, or visit a massage therapist for a professional CBD massage. Either way, check with your doctor first to make sure CBD is safe for you.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Choosing the Right Product

  1. Choose products that are third-party verified. Since CBD products are still poorly regulated in many areas, it's important to buy from reputable companies that work with third party testing labs so you know you're getting what you pay for. Look for products that come with a certificate of analysis (COA) containing information about how the product was tested.[2]
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 1.jpg
    • The COA should include information about where the testing was performed and what was in the test results (for example, how much CBD is in the product and whether it contains any impurities or contaminants).
    • For information about accredited labs that work with CBD products in the U.S., visit the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) National Accreditation Board's search database and look for "cannabidiol" or "CBD": http://search.anab.org/.
  2. Avoid products that make unverified claims. It's against FDA regulations for a company to claim that their CBD product can treat or cure any diseases or health conditions. If the manufacturer's claims about their product seem too good to be true, they probably are. This is a red flag that these products may not be safe or reliable.[3]
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 2.jpg
    • For example, be cautious of claims that CBD oil products can treat, cure, or prevent conditions such as cancer, Alzheimer's disease, or arthritis.
  3. Check the label for ingredients that may cause irritation or allergies. CBD by itself is thought to be fairly safe when applied topically.[4] However, some topical CBD products may contain other ingredients that can cause irritation, allergic reactions, or other health issues. Check the ingredient label closely to make sure it doesn't list any ingredients you want to avoid.[5]
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 3.jpg
    • For example, if you have sensitive skin, watch out for products that contain perfumes or dyes.
    • Since topical CBD is usually dissolved in a carrier oil, check that the carrier isn't derived from a plant that you are allergic to. For instance, avoid using CBD in an almond oil carrier if you're allergic to almonds or almond oil.
    • In addition to allergens and irritants, you may also want to avoid other potentially harmful ingredients, like parabens.
  4. Select a product with more concentrated CBD for stronger relief. CBD topicals come in a variety of strengths, which are usually measured in milligrams (mg). For example, a 600 mg product will be significantly stronger than a 150 mg product. If you need more powerful relief or want to use a smaller amount of the product with each massage, go for a higher concentration of CBD.
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 4.jpg
    • Keep in mind that more concentrated products will be more expensive than those with smaller quantities of CBD in them.[6]
  5. Get full-spectrum CBD oil for more powerful results. Topical CBD treatments can also contain other cannabinoids, such as THC.[7] Since both CBD and THC have pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties, you may find a combination of the 2 even more helpful than CBD alone.[8] If they are legal in your area, look for products advertised as "full spectrum," which contain all the cannabinoids found in the hemp or marijuana plant, rather than just CBD.
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 5.jpg
    • THC is the compound in marijuana plants that causes you to feel high if you smoke or ingest marijuana. There's also a very small amount of THC in hemp.
    • You're unlikely to experience a high from using a product containing THC on your skin. You'd have to use a very concentrated oil over a very large portion of your body to feel any significant psychoactive effects.

[Edit]Self-Massaging with CBD Oil

  1. Mix CBD oil with a carrier oil to make your own massage oil. If you don't want to buy a commercially made CBD topical, you can make your own by mixing a powdered CBD isolate or a CBD extract or tincture with a carrier oil, such as coconut or olive oil. You can also combine some of the tincture or isolate with your favorite body lotion.[9]
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 6.jpg
    • For example, you could mix ½ g of a 99% CBD isolate with of the carrier oil of your choice to make a 500 mg CBD massage oil. If you like, you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil, such as lavender or chamomile.
    • You can also mix an extract (which is CBD oil already mixed with a carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil) with each of a combination of your favorite oils, such as jojoba, sweet almond, and rosehip.
    • Do a search for "CBD massage oil recipe" to find numerous recipes for balms, lotions, and salves that you can make yourself using CBD isolate or tincture.
  2. Rub the CBD ointment or balm directly on sore or tense areas. Topical CBD treatments work best when you apply them directly to the area where you want to feel relief.[10] Smooth the product into your skin directly over any tense, sore, or aching muscles or joints.
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 7.jpg
    • For example, you might massage the product into your calves and thighs if they're sore after a workout.
  3. Warm up your muscles with larger strokes to get started. Use the heels of your hands or a massage tool to make long, gliding strokes along the length of the muscle or joint you would like to massage. This will help warm up your muscles and improve circulation to the area, which will make a more targeted massage more effective.[11]
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 8.jpg
    • These gliding strokes will help work the CBD oil into your skin. Additionally, the oil will provide lubrication and make it easier for you to pass your hands or the tool over your skin.
  4. Target knots and painful areas with smaller strokes. Once you've warmed up your muscles, you can concentrate on specific areas of pain or discomfort. Use your fingers or massage tool to press or rub on pressure points or do deeper, firmer strokes along the length of a sore muscle.[12]
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 9.jpg
    • Don't worry too much about doing specific movements or targeting particular points on your body. Do whatever feels best, and stop if whatever you are doing is making your pain or discomfort worse.
  5. Use a muscle roller or other massage tool for a deeper massage. To work out deep knots and tension in your muscles while also getting the beneficial effects of a CBD oil massage, use a tool like a rolling pin, tennis ball, or muscle roller.[13]
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 10.jpg
    • You can also use massaging tools that relieve pain and tension using heat, vibration, or pressure. If you're using a tool with electronic components, check the manual to make sure it's safe to use with oils, creams, or lotions.
  6. Apply the product as often as recommended on the label. How often you should use your CBD massage product will depend on the product and your personal needs. The label on the product should give you some guidelines about how frequently you can use it for the best results.[14]
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 11.jpg
    • For example, the label may recommend applying the product every 4-6 hours.
    • You can also ask a doctor, physical therapist, or massage therapist how often to massage yourself with a CBD product.
  7. Stop using the product if you experience side effects. It's very rare for CBD to cause side effects or allergic reactions when applied to the skin. However, it's possible you could have a reaction to another ingredient in the product you're using.[15] Stop using the product if you experience symptoms such as a rash, itching, pain, or redness.
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 12.jpg
    • See your doctor if you have a severe rash or if the symptoms don't clear up on their own in a few days after you stop using the product.
    • Get emergency medical care if you experience symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, such as difficulty breathing, a rapid heartbeat, fainting, nausea and vomiting, or swelling in your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

[Edit]Getting Professional Help

  1. Talk to your doctor before using CBD oil. Although topical use of CBD oil is considered very safe, it's still a good idea to check with your doctor first. Let them know if you are using any other medications or topical treatments, since it's possible they might interact with the CBD oil.[16]
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 13.jpg
    • Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, nursing, or have any other health concerns.
    • If you have any skin conditions, such as psoriasis or eczema, ask your doctor if you can use CBD oil safely on the affected skin.
  2. Call your doctor if you have persistent muscle or joint pain. If you have muscle or joint pain that's severe or doesn't go away with home treatment or professional massage, talk to your doctor. There may be an underlying issue that needs to be treated.
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 15.jpg
    • See your doctor about muscle pain accompanied by redness, swelling, a fever, or a rash. You should also make an appointment if you think the pain is being caused by a medication you're taking.[17]
    • If you have persistent swelling, pain, and stiffness in your joints, see your doctor. These are common symptoms of arthritis.[18]
  3. Visit a massage therapist who works with CBD for a professional massage. Some massage therapists incorporate CBD products into their practice.[19] If you're interested in trying a professional CBD massage, do a search using terms like "CBD massage near me."
    Use CBD Oil for Massage Step 14.jpg
    • If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to ask your massage therapist ahead of time. For example, you could ask, "Do your products contain other cannabinoids, like THC?"
