1) A very simple trick to cure nose blocks.

If your sinuses are unclear resulting in a stuffy nose, and you're out of your medicines, try this simple promising trick to make your nose breathe again. Press your tongue against the roof of your mouth and gently press the center area between your eyebrows with a finger. This leads to back and forth rocking of the nose bone and thus clears the mucus in no time.

If you are a child trapped in an adult's body and super scared of injections (just like me) there's something which can reduce the pain to a great extent. If you cough just before the shot, it blocks the pain signals traveling to the brain. Though, if you're gonna try this, try being very careful as you don't want the needle to pinch somewhere else!

All of us have placed ice bags on our cheeks during painful toothaches at some point.

Yes, indeed our nose is a time machine and there's a scientific explanation. Millions of people have claimed that a particular smile takes them back in time and reminds them of a long forgotten memory. The reason why this happens is that the part of the brain that stores aromas and smells also stores emotions and memory.

6) Your digestive system can turn you into a superhero.

6) Your digestive system can turn you into a superhero.

Yes, you read that right. In the event of danger, adrenaline is released in the body which is followed by dilation of pupils and a faster heartbeat. The digestive system also shuts down temporarily. All this happen to contract the muscles whose help you might take during an emergency. You will be surprised at your immense strength at some stages like this.

If you're put in the cold and there's a sudden big drop in your body temperature, chances are you might catch hypothermia, which is extremely dangerous. When the body temperature falls suddenly, our eyes start to constrict to save energy leading to temporary blindness. If this starts to happen to you, get back to your home and consume something warm to risen your body temperature,

Especially, when you have a crush on someone, try your best not to look into their eyes while talking. The eyes have a tendency to dilate while talking to one's love interest and that's just a dead giveaway. It gets worse when your friends are around!

This is no secret. We all love ice creams and eat them as if they're the last one on the planet. Sometimes so fast, we end up having a brain freeze. When we consume an ice cream very rapidly, the upper cells of the mouth start to freeze, resulting in the brain to overheat. A terrible headache soon follows. To get rid of a headache, push your tongue against the roof of your mouth really hard. This warms up the nerves and the brain stops to overheat.
