Quick Health Tips
Here are some quick health tips for you from various sources; including the American Medical Association.
- First, when you're looking for a doctor ask their age. Find one who's roughly your age give or take 5 years. If your doctor is facing the same health problems you are, it'll help them anticipate which tests and treatments you need. Plus, you'll feel that he understands you better.
- If you have a cast on because you broke a bone, here's how to itch that unreachable scratch. Try scratch the same place on the opposite arm or leg. This may trick your brain into thinking you're scratching the real itch.
- If you get claustrophobic in small spaces like elevators or subways, visit your local fruit stand. A whiff of green apple can help relieve that claustrophobic feeling. Another trick with green apples if you're selling your house, place a bowl of them on a table. It makes potential buyers perceive the house as larger.
- And here's one last one - How to tell if you're old. Research suggests there's a difference between how younger people and older people react when they can't find their car keys. A young person usually blames it on someone else, saying 'Who stole my car keys!?' An older person blames themselves, saying 'I'm having a senior moment. I can't find my car keys again.' To stay mentally young, never use your age as an excuse. Psychologists say it's an effective mental trick that'll help you remain younger, longer.
