Life is a series of choices that we actually make. A job can be done in uncountable amount of ways as far as human skills are concerned.
Below are some tried and tested medical life hacks that can help you make your daily mandatory tasks easier. Get ready for some “Oh I didn’t know this” moments in the next 10 minutes.
If you have a bit of acid reflux, sleep on your left side. Or sleep on two pillows! Helps keep the acid down where it’s supposed to be if your neck is elevated. It’ll also help immensely if the reflux makes your voice croaky in the mornings.
Cramped foot will no longer be a problem. Grab your big toe, pull it forward and wiggle it about as fast as possible, cramp goes away. Not sure if it’s just a placebo type affect, but it works for many.
For all those who are fed up of body odour and sweat, we have a workaround. I have heard my friends complain that sometimes their BO builds up to the point where they can still smell it fresh out of the shower. Having tried tons of advices and prescriptions to fix it, they finally found vinegar to be the best.
Just spray some on the problem area, wait a few minutes, and hop in the shower. The vinegar kills the bacteria which cause the issue. It kills odor so well you’ll probably be able to get away with not using deodorant for a few days after, even.
If you mildly hurt yourself like a stubbed toe, or a paper cut, pinch yourself elsewhere and focus on that feeling. Your body assumes it’s more painful and stops feeling the pain from the other spot as much. It helps lessen the length you have to deal with the pain of the injury. Not a very risky option to try I suppose.
If you get a lot of mild headaches that feel like they might be caffeine headaches, or maybe tension headaches, try drinking more water. They could be caused by dehydration.
If you need to draw a straight line without a ruler, draw two dots, and put your pencil on one of them. Stare at the other dot and draw your line without looking anywhere else. Our brains will automatically make our hand go to where we are looking creating a straight line.
Hope that helps!
