1. Stop a sneeze in its tracks by pressing down on the area right above your upper lip.



While most of the time you should just go ahead and sneeze, you can definitely use this trick when you're, like, meeting your idol or saying your wedding vows.

3. When you get a brain freeze, press and hold your tongue up to the roof of your mouth.



The roof of your mouth gets cold, which causes immediate constriction of the blood vessels. As soon as those blood vessels constrict, your body reacts by trying to dilate them very quickly in order to get more warm blood to the area and heat it up. Pain receptors in the roof of your mouth send a message up to your brain telling you you've got something bad going on in the roof of your mouth. And it causes you to experience an intense headache in your forehead.

4. Read a paragraph or so of sentences backwards, and you might be able to touch your toes.



It's not a permanent fix OR a miracle cure for chronic back pain, but hey, it's a cool trick.

5. Lie on your left side to help prevent bedtime heartburn after you eat a big meal.



Well, step one is to wait three to four hours after eating before you go to bed. Then yes, lying on your left side does help.

Several studies have found that sleeping on the right side aggravates heartburn; sleeping on the left tends to calm it.

The reason is not entirely clear. One hypothesis holds that right-side sleeping relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter, between the stomach and the esophagus. Another holds that left-side sleeping keeps the junction between stomach and esophagus above the level of gastric acid.

6. Stop a nosebleed by leaning your head forward a little, then pinching your nose in a specific spot for five minutes.



According to the Harvard Health Blog, start by lightly putting your thumb and forefinger on either side of the top of your nose, then slide them down until you feel the "drop off," and you reach the cartilage. Pinch there, so you're holding both sides of your nose against the septum in the middle, and hold for about five minutes.

7. To calm down when you're feeling extremely nervous, put your thumb in your mouth, close your lips, and try to blow out air, letting your cheeks puff up.


Don't do it too hard, or for too long, but it's a vagal maneuver that could help slow your heartbeat.
