UNEXPECTED YAWNS ARE LIKELY THE RESULT OF A SLIGHTLY OVERHEATED BRAIN

File credit
Last week in the middle of a lecture, I just couldn't help it. I  inhaled a giant involuntary yawn.The embarrassing thing is that the lecturer saw me and I'm pretty sure she thought I gave the impression that I was less than enthused. Was I bored with her lecture?No.
According to a 2007 Study  in the Journal of Evolutionary Psychology, yawning increases blood flow to the brain, which helps move heat away and cools the area. In essence, those unexpected yawns are likely the result of a slightly overheated brain , according to the study.

TOO MUCH AVOCADO EATING LEADS TO FLATULENCE

Don't you just love Avocados? Not only are they world's most  healthiest foods, they're also incredibly delicious and go with all sorts of foods. It’s been celebrated from time to time  for its vitamins, fiber content, and fat.However,too much avocado eating has it own effects.
Well too much  avocado eating  can  make  you fart a lot.This is  due to the fact that they are very high in fibre.According to NIH.gov, increased gas (flatulence) is a common side effect of high-fiber diets. The gas occurs because bacteria within the colon, unlike the intestine of humans, are capable of digesting fiber to a small extent. The bacteria produce gas as a by-product of their digestion of fiber.
However,you can take steps to reduce flatulence when you eat high-fiber foods >> Decreasing Gas caused by Fiber  .

How to Avoid Feeling Drowsy After Lunch
1)Avoid  low-fiber fast food meals.This is  because low fiber fast foods produce an insulin spike that leaves you tired later after eating the meal.

2)Try to have a decent sleep  the night before.

3)Sprinkle your face with cold water several times a day.

4)Take a power  nap, just 20-30 minutes, and you'll be very energetic and more efficient in your job/study in the afternoon.
 
5)A little exercise after eating a heavy meal won't hurt.Walk around,stand up.

Well,some say it works ,some say it's pure hogwash.But here is the catch.
I once  read  that if you were to chew gum all the time you are awake, that chewing gum alone would cause you to lose 0.5 of a lb in a year.Extremely small I know, but  this just shows that the more body movement, the more calories you are burning.Chew a sugar-free gum today!

KEEPING EYE STINGING VAPORS WHEN CUTTING ONIONS

Its a known fact that onions are way too smelly and often make you cry while cutting them.The real struggle is staying 'tear-free' during the process of slicing and dicing the onions.
The only technique I know of which actually works for stopping the irritation of eyes when chopping onions is the use onion  Protective goggles that feature a soft foam seal inside the frame to keep out eye-stinging vapors when chopping onions.Forget about all the other techniques like holding a wooden matchstick between your teeth,eating bread while slicing and dicing the onions.
Another method can be reducing the internal pressure of the onion cells prior to chopping them.I always put my onions in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes,followed by quickly cutting the onions by a sharp knife and it works.
My neighbor prefers using only a sharp knife because it slices cleanly, rather than crushing the onion cells that contains juice and volatile compounds( Sulfenic acid ) known to cause  irritation to one's eyes and sinuses.

 


And again,the easiest method is to just not look at the onions while chopping it. However,you have to be really sure of your knife skills
