Often, they subscribe to blogs and medical site to know the latest in the field of medicine and to get health tips that can help them to stay fit.
But there are simple but weird health tips that can actually help you to stay healthy. If you are curious what these tips are, read on this list:
- Keep the toilet lid close
There is a reason why your partner insist that you close the toilet seat after using it. Apart from hygiene, keeping your toilet seat close will keep the water particles and air-borne bacteria inside the toilet and prevent them from spreading inside the room. This tip might be simple, but it can certainly save your life and your relationship.
- Do not brush your teeth immediately
One of the misconception of some people is that they need to brush their teeth right after every meal. But in reality, this practice might be harming your pearly whites. After a meal, your mouth and gums are still full of acid. Brushing your teeth immediately after eating will strip your mind of the acid but it can damage your teeth’s enamel. It would be best to wait for 30 minutes before you clean your teeth.
- Go for a hot tea to cool off
The usual practice that we know is, we need to have a glass of cold beverages to make our body feel cold after a long walk outside. But the true trick here is to do the opposite. Drinking a hot tea on a hot day would help you cool off more, as you will be able to sweat more and release the heat from your body.
- “Ice” cardiac patients
When a patient suffers cardiac arrest, our first instinct is to call for help. But if the help is still on their way, you can apply ice to the patient. This first aid tip might be a bit weird but it can put the body in the state of induced hypothermia, which slows down the dying process.
- Exercise to energize
After a long day at work, the last thing that you want to is run the treadmill. But if you want a boost of energy to keep you through the night, go for it. Exercising will supply oxygen to your tired cells, energizing them again.
