Although every one of us is different, we all have body’s that can do tricks and weird things we have never even heard of before. You actually never know what your body can do these days. Thanks to technology and research, now we can learn new tricks our body can do from relieving aches and pains without medication to telling the future. Here are 20 tricks and weird things you didn’t know your body could do.
Say, you are at a noisy concert but you are trying to hear what your friend is saying. If you turn to listen to them with your right ear when they are talking, you will hear them better because the right ear is better at tracking active talking. However, if you are trying to figure out what song is playing, turn to the radio with your left ear toward it to be able to determine the song. This works this way because the different hemispheres of the brain work better for different things.
When your throat starts tickling, you tend to try to clear it to get rid of the tickle. This doesn’t work very well, however. All you really need to do is scratch your ear to ease that tickle in your throat. When you scratch your ear, the scratching activates the nerves in the ear which in turn creates a reflux like reaction and causes a muscle twitch. The muscle twitching in your ear eases the tickle in your throat.
If you are in a situation where you can’t use the bathroom anywhere but you really need to pee, just think about sex — it eases the discomfort of having to urinate really badly. This is because the thought of having sex occupies your mind and your body and will distract you from feeling the discomfort of having to urinate so badly.
If you need to get some kind of injection when visiting the doctor or you are in the emergency room and you don’t want to feel the small pinch from the needle, just cough a little and it will decrease even this little bit of pain. This is because coughing decreases pain signals to the brain which, in turn, causes you to feel less of it.
