4 Little Known Tricks to Teach Your Body

Based on some health tricks posted on Lifehacker and Men’s Health, I’ve compiled the 4 most surprising tips and tips that I may find useful.

1. Dilate your pupils on command:

Try tensing your stomach in a variety of ways and see if it increases your pupil size. Some people can dilate their pupils in this way, although the underlying mechanism is unidentified. – via Lifehacker

2. Delay the urge to go:

If you scratch or rub the back of your calf for a few moments, really vigorously, you may interrupt the message from your bladder to your brain just long enough for you to make it to the toilet – via Lifehacker

3. Avoid a brain freeze:

Press your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth, covering as much as you can. – via Men’s Health

4. Improve hearing:

If you’re stuck chatting up a mumbler at a cocktail party, lean in with your right ear. It’s better than your left at following the rapid rhythms of speech, according to researchers at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. If, on the other hand, you’re trying to identify that song playing softly in the elevator, turn your left ear toward the sound. The left ear is better at picking up music tones. – via Men’s Health
