Get Well Soon

Which is the best day of the week to exercise?

Monday. It sets a psychological tone for the rest of the week. People who work out on Monday are more likely to exercise more often throughout the week.

When is the best time to brush your teeth?

About an hour after you eat. Many foods contain acids that  soften tooth enamel. After about an hour, the acids drain away, and the enamel hardens again. If you brush while the acids are still around, the combination of brushing and acid can damage the enamel. The acids take their own sweet time to leave your teeth, so rinsing your mouth with water or mouthwash won’t help get rid of them sooner.

Which is the best day of the week to get a vasectomy?

Friday. Urologists give two reasons for this: 1) Many patients who undergo this procedure are embarrassed to talk about it, so if they have it done on a Friday, they can heal during the weekend and return to work on Monday and without anyone the wiser.  2) One of the most important things you can do after getting a vasectomy is nothing. After the surgery, you need to lie on the couch for 48 hours with an ice pack between your legs. And if you have to do that, you might as well do it on the weekend, when it’s more likely that your wife and kids will be around to bring you books and magazines and snacks.
