13 Inventive Tips That Make Our Life Much Easier
We all try to find cooking, makeup, car, and life hacks on the internet sometimes. But there are no multipurpose hack collections to use in different spheres of our life. So if you want to know, for example, how to nap using a system that even Dali used, or how to taste food without burning your tongue, then this article is for you.
Bright Side shares some pieces of advice with everyone who's ready to improve their life.
Hold an object in your hand to use as an alarm clock.
Hold any object in your hand that produces loud noise when it falls down, so you don't oversleep when napping. Dali used this method as his wake up "signal:" he used to hold a key over a ceramic plate.
Put a spoon in the freezer so you don't burn your tongue.
This life hack is a must for those who always burn their tongue while cooking. To stop it, just put a spoon in the freezer and take it out when you're going to taste a dish. You won't need to wait until all the food in your spoon cools off.
Try to hard boil eggs in the oven.
If you want to eat some boiled eggs, don't put on a pot of water to boil. Some people say that it's better to cook the eggs in the oven. It takes more time (30 minutes intead of 10) but when baked, hard boiled eggs have a creamier texture. Also, they’re even easier to peel.
Make pizza at home with a $5 brick oven.
Pizza stones give pizzas, breads, and other things a marvelous crust. Use two layers of pizza stones, or tiles, and you can turn your oven into a brick oven. The pizza stone distributes the heat evenly in your oven, and when the pizza cooks on top of the stone it has a better crust.
Use tortillas to make taco shells.
If you want to try something new, this method is just perfect. Wrap tortillas in a barely damp cloth or paper towel and microwave them until they're steamed, for about 30 seconds. Lay them on a surface and cover both sides with cooking spray. Then carefully drape each tortilla over two bars of the oven rack. Bake until crispy for 7-10 minutes.
Pour coffee by slightly lifting the coffeepot.
You can use this tip to make your favorite drink even tastier: lift your coffeepot while pouring coffee. Even a few inches can change the situation: when coffee flows into your cup this way, it gets enriched with oxygen, and its taste gets richer.
Don't carry your wallet in the pockets of your jeans.
The habit of having a wallet in the back pocket of your jeans is a normal thing for men (and some women do it too). We all know that this makes it easy for someone to steal it. But this habit also affects your health. It's been proven that sitting on your wallet is a bad idea because wallets hurt our lower back and pelvic nerves and can even pinch the sciatic nerve.
Take a spare outfit to a party.
We all know how great parties end up. To avoid unpleasant consequences, take spare clothes with you just in case. If there was no need to change, you can always wear new clothes the next morning to go somewhere feeling fresh and clean.
Two ways to clear your stuffy nose
The 1st way is very easy: you just need to place pressure on a point above the nose bridge. The bone in this area will start swinging and it will stimulate the flow of fluid.
The 2nd way requires holding your breath: pinch your nose, hold your breath, and start nodding your head. These movements will cause carbon dioxide accumulation and your brain will flush the nose sinuses because of the lack of oxygen. Then you should be able to blow your nose.
Use a frozen sponge as a cold compress.
If you hurt yourself, it's best to apply ice or a cold compress. But unfortunately ice can sometimes be too cold, and it starts melting too fast -- it's hard to find a happy medium. To make things easier, we suggest that you freeze some sponges. Soak them in water, then put them in a bag, and put the bag into the freezer. Now you have a great cooling tool that won't melt!
2 minute rule
This rule states that you shouldn't postpone tasks that take less than 2 minutes. For example, making your bed or washing a plate are things that are very easily accomplished. Leaving things like this not only adds up, but these things could collectively contend with important tasks later.
Become "a part of the zoo."
When we go to the zoo, we always want animals to come closer. But generally, they're afraid of us. You can try to wear clothes that are the same color as the zoo workers and animals might treat you like something "familiar" and come a little closer.
Uncovered legs will help you fall asleep faster.
There are so many tips on how to fall asleep and quit suffering from insomnia. One of the methods is really simple: you just need to stick one leg out of the blanket. Low temperatures contribute to good sleep, that's why you don't even need a blanket if it's not freezing. It's even recommended to sleep with an open window to let fresh air in.
Will you take any of these tips into consideration?
