To help remove some of your day-to-day issues, you can find a list of essential hacks in this article, from health and beauty to cleaning and home care.
1. Hacks to Avoid Painful Electrostatic Shocks
We have all experienced static shocks from time to time, perhaps when shaking someone’s hand, or reaching for the doorknob. These shocks happen because of the clothes we wear since shocks are often created by friction between the fabric. To avoid this, you can try changing your footwear and other fabrics that create a charge throughout your day and lead to an electric shock. Also, wear fewer synthetic materials and layer up less.
2. Stick Out Your Tongue to Stop Uncontrollable Hiccups
Hiccups are annoying and embarrassing, especially if they occur at inappropriate times. They are caused by the muscle of your diaphragm contracting out of rhythm. This is responsible for controlling the rhythm of our breath. In order to stop hiccups, stick out your tongue as far as possible.
3. Repair Your Broken Nail Using a Teabag
If your nail splits or breaks, you can easily repair it at home with this DIY hack. The things you need are a paper teabag that will cover up the crack. Simply remove the polish and apply a base coat before cutting a rectangle out of the teabag and cover half of your nail. You should put a layer of base coat over the teabag and leave it to dry before filling it down to shape. Then, apply a second base coat to fully strengthen it. Apply your nail polish over the top to completely restore the nail.
4. Avoid Hair Thinning by Eating More Zinc and Iron
It’s natural for us to experience some amount of hair thinning throughout our lives. Especially when we age. To keep your hair strong and healthy and reduce thinning, your diet is important. Having more iron and zinc in your diet will nourish your hair follicles and keep your hair healthy.
Try eating more foods with high iron and zinc content, like beans, meat, whole grains, nuts, and shellfish to help nourish your hair.
5. Nuts Will Help You Sleep Better
Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to sleep at night, after a long tiring day. To help you sleep better at the end of the day, try eating more nuts. Almonds are perfect because they contain the naturally occurring chemical melatonin. It’s responsible for helping you to set your sleeping and waking body clock, something that is important for a good night’s sleep.
