12 Simple, Everyday Health Hacks That Will Help You Feel Better

The human body is a strange and complex organism, with hundreds of moving pieces constantly working together to keep you, well, alive. Given that it's a vessel with so much going on at any given time, it makes sense that there are so-called "body hacks" you can do to make it work even more efficiently.

11. Wearing socks can help you sleep better.



Warming your extremities widens your blood vessels, which in turn encourages your body’s sleep hormones to kick in. If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, try adding a pair of cozy socks to the mix.

12. People are more likely to listen to you if you talk into their right ear.


And not just because they hear better on that side. Apparently, the right ear has a more direct line to the left half of the brain. That part of the brain is better at processing requests. Think of that next time you want someone to buy you a drink at a crowded bar.
