    One of the first vids I watched this morning (on a phone, of course) was this one. Is that a gray area?
    Edit: I'd rather have interesting news early than either negative or positive (unless it was super positive, maybe).

    Add a tablespoon of white vinegar to your water when hard boiling eggs and they will peel easily, also No the eggs wont taste vinegar-y, yes the shell is porous but the egg has a membrane under the shell... thats why if you drop an egg on the counter it doesnt always crack all the way... sorry nerdy farm girl here... anyways... try the vinegar trick... at least once...

    After boiling eggs, rinse them under cold water. The shells will come off easily.
    Better yet: Do NOT eat eggs at all. Have a healthy vegan breakfast instead.

    Tip #5 is insightful and I fully agree. You willpower strength is strong in the morning and studies back this up. So cleaning the night before is a truly more effective habit to do as opposed to the misconceived cleaning in the morning

    Thank you for the useful information! I'm wondering though, why do you stretch your "frontalis" or forehead muscle while speaking? Throughout the video, I couldn't get myself to not notice that. You probably do it unconsciously, no? I was thinking that if you keep doing it, you're gonna get the forehead wrinkles earlier on.

    This is something I think you should stop doing:)
