10 Little Things We Had No Clue We’ve Been Doing Wrong

We've developed the habit of doing things as standard procedure or as we've seen others do them over time. We like to think we know everything, but it's never too late to pick up a new skill, especially if it's a useful life hack.

We found we'd been performing a lot of small things incorrectly. We'd want to shed some light on how to properly use various items today, so prepare to have your world flipped upside down.

Heel to toe is the right way to walk

We probably haven't given much thought to how we walk or how it impacts us. However, some people do walk toe to heel, which is a technique primarily favored by animals. However, the proper method to walk is to strike our heels first, then place our feet on the ground and push off with our toes. The heel-to-toe walk is more efficient than toe-to-toe walking since the stride requires less energy. It also minimizes the amount of force applied to the ankles.

Storing the ice cream container in a Ziploc bag before putting it in the freezer keeps the ice cream soft

We might be able to resist the urge to consume the entire ice cream container after opening it and save some for the next day. In this scenario, we immediately returned it to the freezer, making scooping the next day more difficult. Apparently, putting your ice cream in a plastic bag is the best method to keep it soft.

Moisturizer is not supposed to be rubbed, but rather, tapped onto the skin.

There are numerous laws to properly caring for your skin, and one of them is delicately tapping products on top of it. It has been proven that when you use this approach, you practically press the product into your skin, which aids in product absorption and increases blood flow. Warming the product in your palms is one thing you may do to achieve the best results.

To clean a blender, you can just add some dishwashing liquid and water and blend it.

It’s very common to put the blender inside the dishwasher to clean it, but what’s very interesting is that you can fill the blender with a little bit of hot water and dish soap and let it run for about 10 seconds. Pour out the water, rinse it, and you’re good to go

Cupcakes need to be eaten like a sandwich.

Surprisingly, we've spent our entire lives eating cupcakes the wrong way. Here's how to do it properly: Separate the cupcake from the wrapper first, then remove the bottom off and place it on top. It will resemble a sandwich, and you will be able to savor every piece of frosting.

Sleeping on your stomach needs to be avoided at all costs.

Sleeping on your stomach is extremely unhealthy for your health. It puts a strain on your back and spine, according to certain clinical study, because the weight is often concentrated in the middle of the body. Furthermore, it has the potential to develop long-term neck difficulties.

To enjoy iced coffee, you need to use coffee ice cubes.

When you put standard ice cubes in your iced coffee, the flavor of the coffee will begin to fade as the cubes melt. To keep the flavor strong, use coffee ice cubes instead. The cubes are simple to make. Simply pour your coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze it; then, whenever the mood strikes, you can add it to a cup of iced coffee.

To microwave your leftover pasta, create a hole inside the plate.

We all appreciate leftover pasta from time to time, and while the only suitable method of reheating them is by microwaving, we should know how to do it properly. It's recommended to make a hole in the middle of the pasta, making it look like a donut on the dish, to achieve evenly warm pasta.

Breathing from your abdomen is more efficient than breathing from your chest.

Unfortunately, one of the things we've probably been doing incorrectly is breathing, but it's not too late to learn how to get enough oxygen into your system. It has been proved that pulling the air down toward the belly is the most efficient technique to breathe. The belly expands as the diaphragm contracts, allowing air to enter the lungs.

Bread needs to be sliced upside down

We need to start on the rougher side of the bread to slice it neatly and keep the shape of the loaf. It's much easier to keep the bread's shape if you start at the bottom. It's also a good idea to wait until the bread has reached room temperature before slicing it.
