What if I could tell you about 5 totally different things that’d change your perception, and help you live a better life? Well, that’s exactly what I’m gonna do! Today, we’d be treating some top classified secrets (ok, maybe classified is way too much). But these “top secrets” are guaranteed to influence the way you live your life—positively.
1. You Have a Desperate Need for Mental Engagement.
This has def happened to you: You’re starving but then you suddenly see the new trailer of a movie you’ve been expecting for months now. Before you know it, hours have passed without any sensation of hunger.
Seriously, I can’t count the number of times I was hungry (starving more like), got on the piano, and just “forgot” about any sensation of hunger. So, pick up that book you’ve been avoiding for weeks now—engage your mind!
2. Sleeping in a Cold Room Can Help You Slim Down.
For my (coughs_) slightly puffed up friends, research has finally shown that just one month of sleeping in a 66-degree room helped increase the subject’s fat-burning ability by 10%.
Anyways, you know what to do with this information. (I didn’t say to go sleep in a freezer for a month ooooooo).
3. Listening to High-Frequency Music Makes You Feel Relaxed and Happy.
Wahala for who no dey listen to Rock Music…
4. Research has found that…
…the prefrontal cortex (majorly meant for planning, reasoning, and decision-making) isn’t fully developed until age 25. Well, now we know why we try risky things without worrying whether the consequence is revealed.
5. Fake Smiles Can Hurt You.
Apparently, this researcher looked at the behaviour of bus drivers, and found that these people withdraw from their work by putting smiles for show. Evidently, this has long-term harmful health effects.
I really hope this helps, no? See you!
