AWESOME BODY HACKS:
✓ If you want to hold your breath underwater longer, take a series of short breaths instead of one huge inhalation. This tricks your brain into thinking it has more oxygen.
✓ Studies suggest that increasing the level of CO2 in your bloodstream is the key to ending hiccups. Therefore, breathing into a plastic bag for about 30 seconds is an almost sure cure.
✓ If you suffer from motion sickness or nausea, try pressing and holding the spot between the two tendons on the inside of your wrist.
✓ For temporary vision improvement, curl your hand into a fist and look through the tiny hole as you would a telescope. This trick temporarily increases your depth of field and focus.
✓ Everyone’s familiar with the desperation of urgently needing to pee when there’s no bathroom in sight. To suppress this urge, simply think about sex.
✓ To revive an arm that has fallen asleep, rock your head from side to side. This will reduce the tension in your neck and help to ease the pins & needles sensation in your arm.
