How to tell when meat is fully cooked

Use the thermometer at the end of the cooking time and dip it for 15 sec only at a depth of 2 inches or to the indicator mark on the thermometer.
Insert it at the center at the thickest part and not in the bone or fat.

Peel a potato in seconds

Wash the potatoes thoroughly, then put them in water and boil for a few minutes. Immediately after, dip them in ice water for 5-10 seconds. The peelings should come right off after that.

Have coffee, and then take a nap

In a Japanese study that examined how to make the most of a nap, people who took a "coffee nap"—consuming about 200 milligrams of caffeine (the amount in one to two cups of coffee) and then immediately taking a 20-minute rest—felt more alert  and performed better on computer tests than those who only took a nap.
Why does this work? A 20-minute nap ends just as the caffeine kicks in and clears the brain of a molecule called adenosine, maximizing alertness. As adenosine levels increase, we become more fatigued. Napping clears out the adenosine and, when combined with caffeine, an adenosine-blocker, further reduces its effects and amplifies the effects of the nap.

According to Alex, a coffee expert on ground coffee beans at Ground Homes, adding coffee to your routine can help improve the quality of life, stimulate your nerves and guarantee better performance at work.
