Do you have any interesting health tips that you want to share? Here are a few (since we are all different they may not work for everyone). Let me know if they work for you? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rub your ears to boost energy. Instead of reaching for another cup of coffee, give your ears a gentle self-massage. According to Chinese medicine, stimulating the pressure points in the ears increases blood circulation to all parts of the body, giving you an instant energy boost. Blow on your thumb to calm jangled nerves. The thumb has its own pulse, and blowing on the thumb will cool down the thumb and thus calm the heart rate, as cold air can slow down your pulse. This trick might also help simply because the act of blowing forces you to deepen your breathing, which calms the heart. Curl your toes to fall asleep faster. The next time you find yourself tossing and turning, try a progressive muscle relaxation technique. Begin by slowly curling and uncurling your toes. Then, work your way up the entire body, from your toes to your neck, tightening a certain muscle group before releasing it. Smile to make yourself happier. Scientists have found that the simple act of smiling can lower blood pressure and release stress, giving you an instant mood boost (yes, even forced smiles count!). Shake your head to wake up sleepy feet. It happens to all of us — you’re sitting in an awkward position when all of a sudden your foot, hand or other body part falls asleep. To quickly eliminate that uncomfortable tingling sensation, move your head side to side. The movement helps relieve nerve tension. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Picture credit: Pixabay

Eating banana can help quitting smoking and boost brain power. Mosquito bites can be reduced by banana. Banana also helps reducing depression also.

I think we don't make enough use of our minds when it comes to health. On the same order of forcing a smile to get a boost in mood, saying to yourself, "I feel good!" (Or calm or sleepy or whatever) really works. You might have to say it a few times and say it out loud, but we believe what we hear.

I had my pupils rub their ears occasionally when they were very tired. I'm not a great smiler, but my blood pressure is very good.

I've heard of a couple of these and do use the ear one. I can't add anything I'm afraid.

How come our feet don't fall asleep when we want them to so that we could see if it works?
