Close One Eye When You Go to the Toilet at Night

Close One Eye When You Go to the Toilet at Night

In our everyday life, we’re usually doing
things in seemingly the easiest and most rational way, yet we face the same problems repeatedly. Because there’s no way to bounce back from
not getting enough sleep; task management doesn’t seem to work at all; and how in
the world could you make a paper cut less painful? Check this out: 1) It’s hard to fall asleep again after
going to the bathroom at night. Wanna know why? That’s because you switched on the lights
to see what you’re doing. Our brain is trained to think that the light
naturally means morning. Even though you’ve only slept for a couple
of hours, your body will think it’s time to wake up. The production of the sleep hormone, melatonin,
can actually be suppressed by exposure to light. The solution is easy – you need to close
one eye on your way to the toilet and back. This doesn’t allow as much light in, tricking
your brain into thinking it’s not that bright yet, and you can keep sleeping! Or simply have a dim night light already in
the bathroom. 2) Stumbling on things in the dark. If you decide to fix this whole ‘light means
morning’ issue radically, or there’s simply no way to conveniently turn the lights on,
you’re probably going to stumble on something. Loud noises also don’t help anyone get a
good night’s sleep, so the best you can do to save yourself is to move your eyes rapidly
in the dark. We’re naturally prone to see moving objects
clearer, so it’s much easier to see in the dark while you move your sight from one thing
to another. Of course the obvious answer would be to remove
the stuff on the floor before bedtime so you don’t trip on it later. But that might be asking too much. 3) Losing weight in your sleep. Sometimes it’s hard to make time for exercise
in a day, or you just feel too tired after a long day of studying or working to lift
weights. This isn’t that big of a problem; you have
nothing to blame yourself for. A good diet and healthy sleep will make up
for it with a little extra on top. Our metabolism keeps working when we sleep. On average, you burn around 500 calories overnight
if you get 8 hours of sleep, which is the recommended time anyways. You can boost this process by drinking a glass
of water right before going to bed – this way, you’ll also wake up feeling light and
fresh, and needing to go to the bathroom. But be careful not to oversleep, or eat before
bed. It could reverse the effect. And if that’s not enough for you, you may
want to try lowering the temperature in your bedroom or get rid of warm pajamas – we
lose more calories when we sleep in comfortably cool surroundings. 4) You can cheer yourself up at any time…
forcefully. This one may sound really strange, but have
you ever tried to force a smile for a couple of hours straight? Don’t laugh, it really helps. Try to do this on a particularly bad day,
and in the evening you’ll see that it eventually became effortless, and you’d been smiling
the rest of the day without even noticing. Your brain will naturally connect the smile
with happiness and good thoughts, and you’ll keep this attitude for the rest of the day. 5) Want to sort things out? Spend a day just making yourself attractive. I too sometimes feel like I can’t catch
up with the list of stuff I need to do in my life. These days you feel like the least important
thing in the world is how you look. But seriously, all you might be missing from
time to time is just a little bit of self-confidence and appreciation. Believe me, you can deal with everything else
if you devote just one day on taking care of your looks. Combine it with some reasonable shopping,
which is a good means of stress release. Then take a warm bath with aroma oils, get
all dressed up, and you’ll instantly feel capable of anything. 6) Forget about task management apps. They don’t work as well as you think they
do. There’s always at least one notification
that catches you off guard when you already planned to do something else with your day. The best thing to do is actually take a notebook
and pencil and write down what you’re planning to do in the next few days. The tactile sensation of writing something
down provokes you to think about it positively and creatively. Make this process comforting by writing at
the end of the day when you can relax and give your plans some thought. And if you really want to make sure it gets
done, put it in your calendar, where only the most important stuff should go. 7) Wake up and write again! No coffee, no breakfast, don’t even rush
to the bathroom. Everything else must wait. Instead, as soon as you get up, sit at your
desk and write on a blank sheet of paper. Write anything that comes to your mind. About your worries, your hopes, your dreams;
about your wishes for how good this day can be and what obstacles might come up. Then hide the note from yourself, because
it’s recommended that you not reread what you’ve written. This will help to block the part of your consciousness
that wants to criticize you. The rest of the day it’ll be much easier
to listen to your inner thoughts, and to follow your feelings about things. As it becomes your habit to write in the morning,
you’ll notice how easy it is to be yourself. 8) Argue with the textbooks and manuals you
need to study. It may seem like the best way to learn something
is to cram with your textbook until your head feels overwhelmed, but that’s not always
the case. It’s like a car that can’t catch traction
on the road – there’s nothing for your brain in the way of relating to all the information
you consume. To help, try to guess the upcoming information
beforehand. Take a topic about some law of physics, for
example: guess the explanation of this law, and then start to argue with the article in
the book that gives the correct explanation. If you guessed right, the better for you,
because learning it will fill like positive stimulation in itself. If you’re wrong, then the information will
still have much more meaning for you, and therefore will be easier to remember. 9) If you’re going to have a test tomorrow
– have a good laugh. First of all, on the most basic level, you
want to avoid stressing out and forgetting everything right as the test is handed to
you. That happened too many times in my life, and
I would’ve been happy to know that it’s just because I wasn’t laughing enough. This works similarly to the previous mind
trick – our brains need to build strong relations with what we want to remember. And nothing helps more than something that
gives them positive emotions. No matter how good a person is at holding
a grudge, it’s just in the nature of our mind that we tend to recall good things much
faster, and in better detail. It works just as well for short-term memory;
just find something to laugh about the next time you try to remember something important,
and you’ll remember it for good. 10) Don’t be afraid of being too noisy if
you want to win people over. It goes without saying – even if we find
some person a bit irritating, it’s more probable that we’ll remember them for a
longer time. And since our memory crosses out negative
emotions and keeps positive, it’s also more probable that we’ll remember something good
about this person. So the next time you think to yourself that
it’s best to behave and be humble when you’re surrounded by people, try not to miss a moment
when you can really shine bright. 11) Hot tea will help you to get through a
hot day. The same goes for an ice-cream if you feel
cold. The trick is in our body. It’ll produce much more heat if you eat
an ice-cream during a cold winter day, which will, in turn, warm you up. But don’t overuse this trick. Just one cone, once in a while, would be fine;
eat too much and the heat of your body may work against you. No one wants you to catch a cold! A cup of hot tea on a summer afternoon will
deal with thirst much better than a glass of water, and it’ll help you release heat
from your body and feel better. 12) Unexpected medicine. Flipping through a book may be dangerous,
we all know that. Some people even say that nothing hurts worse
than a paper cut. These people don’t get out much, or at least
haven’t been to a hospital. But anyway, there’s a medicine for those
paper cuts. And it’s Chapstick! Just put it over the cut and feel the pain
disappear. And it’s good for your lips too. Another sore that can catch you off guard
is a burned tongue. There’s seemingly no way to get rid of the
burning sensation. Add to that the fact that the tongue is the
most mobile part of your body and you’ll get why it can easily ruin your day. But if you burned your tongue, just put a
bit of sugar on the burn, and the pain will go away. Easy as that! How about you, kiddo? What strange tricks do you use in your everyday
life? Let me know down in the comments! If you learned something new today, then give
