Rread your notes before going to sleep

According to Dr. Youn, if you’re studying for a test and can’t remember all the information you need to know, just go through your notes right before you go to sleep.

This should help you remember them in the morning.

Scratch your ear to get rid of a tickle in your throat

dr. Youn says there’s a simple solution to getting rid of a tickle in your throat — just scratching your ear.

However, it is important to note that if you have chronic itching in the throat, it could be a sign of a medical condition.

Scratch your arm to distract from the pain of an injection

Getting an injection in your arm is never pleasant, but according to the doctor from Detroit, there is a way to make it less painful – scratch the area next to the injection site.

He explains that this confuses the nerves, which should reduce the pain.

rub antiperspirant on a bite to reduce itching

Constant itching from a mosquito bite is enough to annoy anyone, but the doctor says you can suppress the feeling with a simple household item: antiperspirant.

This is reportedly due to the aluminum salts in the antiperspirant, which can help your body reabsorb moisture from the mosquito bite. This helps reduce both swelling and itching.

According to life hackerPrevious research has shown that getting a good night’s sleep shortly after college can significantly improve your ability to retain information.

In one reported study, participants memorized related word pairs (for example, circus and clown) and unrelated word pairs (for example, cactus and brick).

Some participants learned the words at 9 a.m. and some at 9 p.m., shortly before going to sleep.

The results showed that when the participants had to remember the unrelated words, those in the 9 p.m. group did much better.

However, sleep made no difference when those involved in the study were told to memorize the related words.

SCRATCH YOUR EAR TO REMOVE TICKLE IN YOUR THROAT

He then answered one of the most frustrating medical mysteries: how to banish an annoying tickle in your throat.

He explained, “Scratch your ear and that will help clear the tickle in your throat.”

Scott Schaffer, MD, president of a specialist ear, nose, and throat center in Gibbsboro, New Jersey, added that this works because the ear scratch results in muscle spasms in the throat.

He told Men’s health: ‘When the nerves in the ear are stimulated, there is a reflex in the throat that can cause a muscle spasm.

“This cramp relieves the tickling,” he explained.

SCRATCH YOUR ARM TO DIVERSE THE PAIN OF AN INJECTION

His third hack came at the right time; how to help with the pain of getting an injection in your arm.

It’s simple, according to Dr. Youn, who explained: “When you get the injection, scratch the area next to it — that will confuse your nerves and make sure it doesn’t hurt.”

Rub ANTI-PERSPIRANT ON A LITTLE TO REDUCE ITCHING

Finally, he gave helpful advice to people who suffered from mosquito bites.

“Take some antiperspirant and rub it against the mosquito bite,” he said. “That’s how you keep it from itching.”

This is reportedly due to the aluminum salts in the antiperspirant, which can help your body reabsorb moisture from the mosquito bite. This helps reduce both swelling and itching.

dr. Youn also shared the video with his 820,000 Instagram followers, many of whom were especially excited about the memory hack.

One commenter wrote: ‘I actually sleep after doing the note-taking trick and it’s really helpful.’ Another added: ‘Number one really works, have used it for years.’
