The human body is active all the time, repairing, healing and adapting to its environment. Here are some tricks that will definitely help you to treat a variety of common ailments.
Keep One Eye Closed
If you wake up and go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, keep one eye closed because if the bright light of the bulb enters both eyes, your body will think it is time to wake up and you will have a difficult time taking your sleep again. However, if you keep one eye closed, your brain will adjust much easier to the darkness and you will be able to fall asleep faster.
Pull On Your Ear
Rubbing your temples can help to ease a headache, but pulling your ear can work better. To do this, hold the meat of your ear and gently pull out and back. This moves the temporal bone just enough to allow fresh cerebral-spinal fluid in, cleansing and nourishing the area.
Roll Your Neck
When our nerves have been compressed and are not getting enough oxygen, we will feel sleepy all of a sudden. Most of us will try to shake our arms to wake up. Instead of flailing your arm or hand around lice a crazy chicken, try to wake up those frozen limbs by rolling your head to the back of your neck. This is more helpful because the nerves in your neck go straight down your arm to your hand. It will not work for your feet though.
If you are in a situation when you should not be crying, even if you really want to, try to find a few different points in the room and stare deeply at them. Repeat the colors of these objects over and over again in your head. This will help you to control your tears to fall because it will decrease your pulse and distract you.
The Right Way To Swallow Pills
If you have troubles swallowing medications, try this: put the pill in your mouth and lean your head forward before you swallow. When leaning forward, your swallow reflex is activated and your body should swallow the pill on its own.
Don’t Be Scared Of Needles
Not only kids, but also adults are afraid of needles. Try this next time you are going to the doctor’s office: Cough lightly a few times as the needle is being placed and the procedure should ne painless. The body becomes distracted, so probably it is the reason this trick works.
Stop The Hiccups
Hiccups happen when the diaphragm spasms, the air you breath in and out is interrupted by vocal cords which creates the sound of hiccup. It can be caused by eating too quickly, swallowing too much air and sudden temperature changes in the stomach. Try opening your mouth and reflexively swallow for a few minutes. This will help you to calm the spasms in your diaphragm, making the hiccups disappear.
