Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. If a friend or a family member gets diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer, in the early stages try to find out what their favorite songs of all time are. In this way, you would be able to create a playlist for them that could be of great benefit in the later stages of the disease.
Music helps dementia patient recall memories and emotions. Especially, when specific songs are connected to previous parts of their lives.
2. Instead of taking plastic utensils to work, stop by the local thrift shop and get a few pieces of loose silverware. It’s cheaper for you, better for the planet, and nicer to eat off of.
3. If you’re ever in a car crash don’t tell anyone the accident was your fault even if you think it might be. Do not sign any document unless it’s for the police or your insurance agent.
This is why you have an insurance company. Let them handle it. The more you say at the scene, the more problems you might cause in your defense later. Be polite, but when it comes to assessing what happened its best to stay quiet. Take photos of all vehicles involved and the accident scene and help anyone who might be injured, if it is safe to do so.
You may think that the crash was 100% your fault and later learn that there were other factors that contributed to the crash that were outside of your control.
4. If you are denied boarding or if your flight is canceled or delayed for at least two hours, ask at the check-in counter or boarding gate for the text stating your rights, particularly with regard to compensation and assistance to claim proper compensation.
5. When you’re hungry at the airport but unsure of what to eat, check out which spot is favored by flight attendants and flight crew, the more crew at a specific spot the better the place usually is.
