How to Make Glowing Jelly

26 Oct

Here’s a really simple and fun experiment to do at home: make glowing jelly (or jello, American friends)! The method is really easy – you’re just making jelly – but you do need some kind of UV light source to see the effects[1].

Ingredients

  3. Add 300ml of tonic water.
  4. Mix it up really well and put it in the fridge.

Quinine glows a blue-ish colour under UV light so I used green jelly to maximise the effect. I’m assuming that the jelly acts as a…

Fibronaut At Home

When I was first diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, pacing myself was one of the biggest challenges I faced.  I was used to running around from thing to thing, all day long.  I was like the Energizer Bunny on crack.  Fibro/CFS has a way of bringing you down a notch or two or ten and adjusting to that has taken me almost two years and I’m still learning my limits every day.  Today, I thought I’d share some of the strategies I’ve learned for getting things done without killing myself.

  • Give all your focus to what you’re working on.  Don’t focus on time or on other tasks.  Set an alarm for breaks and anything else you have to get done in between.
  • Listen to music while you work, it’ll make time go by faster.  Check in from time to time to make sure you’re staying on task and…
