17 Body Care Hacks to Improve Your Health
Here are health related body care hacks that you could easily accomplish without much effort on a daily basis. Of course, they are designed to make you feel and look your best. These body care hacks range from curing a troublesome cough to easing a stressful situation in minutes.
1. Stop Nagging Cough
One way to cure a nagging cough is with Vicks Vapor Rub. Rub the soles of your feet generously with the stuff. Slip on a pair of cotton socks afterwards. I havenít' read any scientific information about this remedy. However, I've tried this and it actually works.
2. Cure Depression
Perhaps, you are having a demanding day and are a bit depressed. Try smiling. There is a scientific study that suggests that smiling changes your mood and releases endorphins that improve your outlook.
3. Motion Sickness
Are you bothered with motion sickness in the car or during a long flight? Scientific studies revealed that ginger is a cure for motion sickness. Sip some ginger tea or take a ginger filled capsule, before your trip.
4. Cure Stuffy Nose
Sinus problems hit everyone during the colder months. You could go to the drugstore and buy a nasal spray or try the following cure. Boil a pot of water on the stove, until it is steaming. Take the boiler and set on a firm surface. Lean over the water and inhale the steam.
5. Reduce Stress
Inhaling orange aroma is actually healthy. The aroma is thought to reduce stress and improve your mood. Rub orange essential oil on your wrist several times a day or place a drop of essential oil on a handkerchief and inhale the aroma to reduce stress.
6. Another Stress Reducer
Chew Sugar Free Gum. High stress produces high levels of a stress hormone called cortisol. High levels of this stress hormone also lead to depression and mental problems. Chewing gum helps reduce the hormone and stress levels in the body.
6. Lose Weight Faster
Here is an idea worth trying. Instead of eating your meals in large plates, downsize to a smaller plate size. This forces you to consume less calories and lose weight faster. Just avoid seconds.
7. Reduce Appetite
Drink a glass of water before eating your meals. This reduces your appetite. Studies also show that the water improves your metabolism rate too. Those trying to lose weight should pay close attention to this body care hack.
8. Reduce Sick Days
Wash Hands several times a day. Studies show that frequent hand washing reduces the chances of catching a virus. Generally, this is because viruses are spread through contact with contaminated objects in the environment. Further more, you should also take a few minutes to wipe down your desk, telephone, and computer with disinfectant wipes to stop germ contamination.
9, Improve Your Memory, Mood, Energy Level
Researchers discovered that 2 to 3 cups of coffee daily improves your memory. Studies also suggest that coffee is a great mood enhancer and energy booster. Drink coffee moderately to avoid the jitters.
10. Fat Burner
Did you know that drinking a cup of coffee before a workout helps to burn more fat? It's quite true. That extra cup of coffee boosts the metabolism, which leads to mega fat burning results.
11. Cure Depression Tip Two
Cure depression by getting your life in order. Start cleaning your room or the entire house. Clean out your closet. Straighten up your desk. Organizing your environment brings about clarity and a sense of calm.
12. Healthy Skin and Hair
Studies show that a burst of cold water is good for your skin and hair. Take a cold shower to improve your skin. Rinse hair in cool water after shampooing.
13. Lower Your Cholesterol
Add a pinch of salt in lemon juice and drink it every morning to reduce your cholesterol level.
14. Increase Longevity
Here is another reason to avoid fast food. Researchers discovered that eating home cooked meals is a good thing. Those that eat an average of 5 or 6 home cooked meals a week live on the average a decade longer than those that eat fast foods daily.
15. Get Smart
Simply inhaling a peppermint scent stimulates the brain and improves brain activity.
16. Cure Migraines
Migraines are a real pain. Drink some grape juice to ease or eliminate the pain.
Feeling stressed before a meeting or big speech? Go to a quite place. Inhale air deeply through your nose for four counts, exhale for four counts through your mouth. Do this several times. You should feel calm and relaxed.
