How Good Are Your Eyes? Cool and Quick Test
 
08:12
How good is your eyesight? Here’s a simple eyesight test that will show how sharp your eyes are. We all know that “eyes are the windows to the soul.” Do your windows need cleaning, or are they crystal clear and give a sharp picture of the world? Take this test to find it out! There will be 4 stages, and it will get harder and harder with every stage. The first one might seem like a piece of cake (and if you’re actually seeing a piece of cake we’ve got problems), but the further we go, the more concentration it will require. In fact, only 8 % of people can pass stage 4 because it is so hard. You will have the same task for every question in all the stages. The task is to pick 1 out of 10 colors which is different from the rest. To pass each of the stages, you have to find that odd one out in each task. If you fail once, you fail the entire stage. TIMESTAMPS Stage 1 Easy 1:11 Stage 2 Normal 2:23 Stage 3 Hard 3:53 Stage 4 Very Hard 5:29 Results 7:06 SUMMARY Congratulations to all superhumans out there who made it. Your eyesight is fantastic! 92% of people failed at this task, and you managed to rock it! There is a chance you are a tetrachromat. This smart word is used to define people who have more receptors in their eyes than others and can see more shades of different colors. Did you manage to make it through all 4 stages? If you failed, at what stage did it happen? Let’s discuss it in the comments section!

19 Simple Psychological Tricks That Actually Work
 
07:48
Have you ever had to use psychological tricks to get what you want? There are a lot of psychological tricks and neuro-linguistic programming tips and there are millions of books and articles written about them. Many of these tricks really help professionals manipulate people and avoid being tricked by others. But are there tips that non-professionals can use on a daily basis? Psychology is a science with certain laws one cannot ignore. Modern marketing specialists, entrepreneurs, and even swindlers realize that. Bright Side offers a few psychological tricks you can use in everyday life to make it much easier and more exciting for you to reach your goals. TIMESTAMPS: #1 0:29 #2 0:58 #3 1:18 #4 1:46 #5 2:03 #6 2:17 #7 2:40 #8 3:06 #9 3:21 #10 3:36 #11 3:55 #12 4:20 #13 4:49 #14 5:19 #15 5:51 #16 6:04 #17 6:19 #18 6:38 #19 7:04 #psychologicaltricks #psychologicaltips #changelife Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Never start your request with the words "Could you..." It can cause the other person to subconsciously assume that this is a theoretical question - If you ever want someone to feel uncomfortable, look at the middle of their forehead during the conversation. - If someone you're talking to is trying to avoid answering a question, just make a pause in the conversation while still keeping eye contact. - When asking a question that you want an affirmative answer to, try to nod subtly as you make your request. This trick is often used by restaurants employees to make guests buy more food, and it’s pretty effective! - If a person is really concentrated on a task (let's say they're in the middle of a serious phone conversation), you can extend your hand to them and get anything they’re holding at the moment. - If you want somebody to do something for you, casually say how they probably wouldn’t even be able to do it. Most people will try really hard to prove someone wrong when it comes to doubting their capabilities. - Here’s a good one for negotiations. If you like a person's offer in general but would like to get better conditions, pretend to be a little bit disappointed. - As soon as your alarm clock goes off, sit up, make two fists, and yell "Yeah!" as if you’re a soccer player who's just scored a goal. It sounds bizarre, but it really does help you easily get out of bed feeling refreshed. - If a person tries to pull you into an argument or some drama, say something nice to them. The ol’ “kill ‘em with kindness” trick really does stop them in their tracks. - If you have that one lazy person on your team that slows the whole work process down, don't give them tasks by saying "Do this." It’s better to say "Start with this." - If someone is staring at you in the subway (happens all-too often, right?), just look at their shoes. Don't give up, keep gazing! It’ll drive them crazy! - If someone has done something wrong, but you don’t wanna sound too accusing, change the way you construct your sentences. - If you didn't get a good night's sleep, tell yourself that you did. I know, it sounds like nonsense, but it does work 100% if you say it with meaning! - People are better at remembering what happened at the beginning and end of the day. As for anything that went on in between, it gets blurry.

A Japanese Technique to Overcome Laziness
 
04:25
Almost all of us periodically sets ourselves a new goal or challenge — and just as often in the end fails to achieve them. We end up telling ourselves that we’re just not ready yet, that we’ll do it next week, next month...next year. We might even pursue them with zeal at the start. But once we’ve made a small amount of effort, we’ll tell ourselves we’ve done enough, and it’s time to take this whole ‘starting a new life’ thing more slowly. Why does it always turn out like this? The answer’s fairly obvious: Because we try to achieve too much, too fast; because we get sick of the new responsibility; because it’s difficult to change old habits and try something new. Other videos you might like: 10 Quick Tips to Lose Weight If You're Lazy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvY31L_LXqA& 10 Moments All Lazy Girls Will Understand https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QTIO1lGEDE 8 Signs You're Suffering from Depression Without Knowing It https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJvehKYb8mA& TIMESTAMPS: Why do we give up so easily? 0:27 How to stop procrastinating? 0:46 How does the method work? 1:43 Why does the method work? 2:29 SUMMARY: - The technique is called Kaizen, or the one-minute principle. Kaizen originated in Japan, and it is something that anyone can attempt in any sphere of their life. - At the heart of this method is the idea that you should practice doing something for a single minute. Every day at the same time. Just for a minute, no more. - Challenging programs of self-improvement that deprive you of vast amounts of energy can end up exhausting you, and leave no tangible results. - The one-minute principle lets you see the progress you’re making. And it’s a critical part of forming new habits! It’s important to overcome that lack of confidence you might have in your abilities, as well as free yourself from guilt and helplessness. - The moment those feelings inspire you, you will gradually begin to increase the amount of time you spend on the goal that you have set yourself.

When everything is ready, start drawing different geometric shapes with both hands at once. - Try to perform mundane, everyday rituals (such as brushing your teeth or combing your hair) using your nondominant hand. - While taking a shower or performing other routine activities, do everything with your eyes closed. - Frequently change the routes you use for commuting to work, going to the shops, or reaching other regular destinations. - While watching a movie, try turning off the sound and relying on the actors’ gestures and movements to guess what they are talking about.

We’ve put together all of the possible cat behaviors to help you find a common language with your pet (well, if it allows you to). Also, we’ve prepared three essential tips that will help you communicate with cats better. HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR CAT • How to make your cat trust you Lowering your cat to the ground, make sure its paws have reached the floor. Your cat will trust you and know that it won’t tumble if you let it go. • How to stroke your cat If you sit on the floor with your legs crossed and look at your cat, it will interpret this as a friendly gesture and come up to you to let you stroke it. Also, stretch your hand out in its direction. Your middle finger should be a little lower than the others.

Have you ever noticed it? • A cat might press its ears against its head if it feels scared, worried, or wants to play. They also do this when they are sniffing something that’s interested them. • When a cat sticks its tongue out slightly and licks itself, it’s worried or anxious. CAT LANGUAGE • Cats generally greet people or announce their presence with a short sound. • Lengthy meowing indicates that your cat is very glad to see you. This occurs if you’re away from home for a long time. • A medium-length meow might be a request for water or food. • A long sound (a mix of purring and meowing) is a more insistent request or demand. • A low meow is a complaint or indication of dissatisfaction. Also, it might mean your cat is ready to fight. • A loud sound often indicates an urgent demand (for instance, you cat needs more food). • A purring or vibrating sound indicates a desire for closer contact or attention. Cats purr for various reasons, but most often they do it when they are happy. Now you know how to find a common language with any cat. By the way, are you a cat person or a dog person?

Around the world, cloves are used to flavor meats and stews, to make rich sauces like Mexican mole, to pickle vegetables, and in cheeses, breads, and warm beverages like tea. Your options are limitless! Cloves are very well-known for their medicinal properties. And that’s because they’re rich in a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Eating just two little cloves a day can relieve digestive issues, strengthen your immune system, and even help you fight off cancer! And there’s a lot more where that came from!

One way you can take advantage of this is to use cloves as a headache remedy. - Cloves have certain elements like flavonoids, manganese, and eugenol that promote bone and joint health. - A study done at the University of Buenos Aires put cloves to the test against some pretty serious bacteria, like E. Coli and Staph. The research showed that clove oil was effective at killing off these bacteria. - Clove extract helped stop growing tumors and even caused cell death in several versions of human cancer cells. They included lung, breast, and ovarian cancer, as well as other types of cancers in their early stages. - Clove is great for people with blood sugar issues, like diabetes, because it acts like insulin inside the body. It actually helps export excess sugar from the blood into the cells of the body, bringing balance back to sugar levels. - Cloves contain vitamin K, which is essential for promoting healthy blood clotting. This is especially beneficial for those who have issues with excessive bleeding due to a vitamin K deficiency.

8 Tricks to Sleep Better According to Athletes
 
08:05
Do you have any sleep troubles? World-famous athletes owe a lot of their success not only to their intense training but also to their sleep coaches! That's right, getting proper sleep is crucial for their performance, and they can certainly teach us all a thing or two about it. For example, even if you don’t consider yourself a necessarily light sleeper, experts still recommend using earplugs. It’s often unexpected minor noises that interrupt our sleep and lower its quality, so a simple pair of earplugs can really come in handy. When choosing earplugs, remember to check their noise reduction rating. If you want them to block most sounds, go for the highest rating there is, which is 39 decibels. TIMESTAMPS: Set a schedule based on sleep cycles 0:47 Try to sleep on your side or back 1:50 Set the appropriate temperature in your room 3:02 Invest in good bedding 3:36 Make your bedroom as dark as possible 4:24 Eat the right food 5:07 Use earplugs 6:11 Resolve your stress 6:51 #sleepproblems #insomnia #goodsleep Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Sleep is usually measured in 1.5-hour cycles because that’s how much time your body needs to pass through all stages of sleep and restore itself completely. The best solution for adults is to sleep for at least 5 cycles through the night, which equals 7½ hours of rest. - Sleeping on your right side is one of the best sleep positions for your heart. It improves cardiac performance, reduces shortness of breath and palpitations, and lowers your heart rate. - The National Sleep Foundation suggests keeping your bedroom temperature at about 60-67°F. That’s because our body temperature naturally decreases to initiate sleep, and this room temperature range helps boost this important process. - The National Sleep Foundation reminds us that most mattresses have a lifespan of 8 years. If yours is much older than that, you should definitely start looking for a replacement. - Turn off the lights, close your curtains, and try to cover up all illuminated displays and buttons on your electronic devices. Achieving as much darkness as possible will help you successfully go through all stages of sleep and wake up feeling fresh as a daisy! - When you consume caffeine or fatty dishes that are high in sugar, your body temperature rises since it takes a long time for your system to digest that stuff. Of course, a higher body temperature is not what you want when it comes to sleeping. - No matter how great your mattress and pillow are, if you're feeling worried or stressed, you won't be able to sleep. So the solution is simple: try to calm down and relax before going to bed. One of the best ones is meditation!

Why Cats Lie on Their Backs When They See You
 
09:28
While cats have been domesticated pets since the days of Cleopatra, there’s still a lot about them that remains a mystery. Like when they just roll over as you approach them, what’s up with that? Actually, when cats lie on their back and expose their bellies, it’s their way of saying “Hello, human!”! But it's not the only message a cat sends when it shows you its cute furry little belly. Today we're talking about cat behaviors. Why do they expose their belly? Why do they bring you dead animals? Why do they like watching from afar? There are plenty of other things they do that just have you scratching your head in confusion. Let's figure out together! Other videos you might like: 26 Facts About Cats That'll Make You Love Them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wO_EunoUSWg& HOW TO UNDERSTAND YOUR CAT BETTER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz6yBbBRr8Y 19 Awesome Cats That Cost a Fortune https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLSZmmDBM9Y& TIMESTAMPS: Showing you its belly 0:43 Rubbing its head on you 2:15 Kneading 2:49 Blinking at you slowly 3:37 Watching from afar 4:01 Scratching your furniture 4:59 Chattering its teeth 5:45 Bringing you dead animals 6:43 Sitting in the most random places 7:22 Bursting with energy in the middle of the night 8:10 #cats #catbehavior #yourpet Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Be careful not to invade your cat’s space unless you know they love belly rubs and like to be touched. Look for other clues like their ears and tail. If their tail is moving back and forth and their ears are set back, this means they’d rather be left alone. - When a cat weaves through your legs and rubs its head on you, it's called bunting, and it involves a release of pheromones from a cat’s head. Basically, it’s as if they’re leaving their scent on you to make sure other cats know that you belong to them. - Have you ever been snuggling with your kitty when they start pressing their little paws into you over and over again? When cats do this sort of bread-kneading motion, it’s actually leftover from their kitten days when they used to nurse. - Has your cat ever made prolonged eye contact with you while blinking really slowly every few seconds? It’s awkward, I know! But this is actually a way for your cat to show you affection! - If you find that your cat is watching you from afar but never wants to engage, this could be a sign that they’re anxious or even mad at you. - Similar to how a dog urinates on things to mark their territory (which cats can do too sometimes, by the way), cats like to scratch furniture to show others what’s theirs. - If your cat’s teeth are chattering really fast, it doesn’t mean they have the chills. It’s actually related to a natural instinct to hunt. - Many animal behaviorists believe that your cat shares a successful kill with you as a way of thanking you for your care. Cats also do this in hopes that you’ll see how good they are, and you’ll pay more attention to them! - Cats seem to love squeezing into small spaces, even though it often looks terribly uncomfortable. They do this because it helps them feel protected and safe. - Many house cats hold in a lot of energy during the day and since they have nocturnal instincts, they often go nuts in the middle of the night.

What's Graphene And Why It'll Soon Take Over The World
 
11:18
What is graphene? What is it used for? The most amazing thing about this semi-metal of the future is the fact that you can produce it yourself in your living room! What is graphene, and why is it so amazing? One of the things that makes graphene so cool is that it’s the thinnest material you can imagine. It's just one atom thick! This means this material is mathematically 2-dimensional. And you can still hold this single layer of atoms in your hands! Surprisingly, graphene isn't a unique or rare substance. In fact, it has the same carbon structure as the graphite you use every day when you draw or write with your pencil! But at the same time, in 0.03” of graphite, there are about 3 million graphene layers! TIMESTAMPS: Why graphene is so amazing 1:05 How graphene was discovered 1:48 How expensive graphene is 2:15 What the properties of graphene are 2:41 How graphene can be used 4:50 Can you make graphene at home? 9:59 #graphene #thinnestmaterial #graphenelayers Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Graphene isn't a unique or rare substance. In fact, it has the same carbon structure as the graphite you use every day when you draw or write with your pencil! But at the same time, in 0.03” of graphite, there are about 3 million graphene layers! - Dr. Konstantin Novoselov and Professor Andre Geim discovered the wonder-material in 2004 at the University of Manchester. They were examining how efficient graphite is as a transistor. The story goes that graphene appeared thanks to sticky tape! - Graphene used to be incredibly expensive to manufacture. It cost a whopping $1,100 to produce enough graphene to cover the head of a pin. However, by the end of 2015, you could buy 0.35 oz of graphene for $1,000. - Graphene is incredibly stretchy. It can stretch as much as 25% of its length! This material is also really stiff. Actually, it’s the hardest material people know about — even harder than diamonds, and that says a lot! - One more great thing about graphene is its relationship with electricity. This material carries electricity more quickly, more precisely, and more efficiently than any other known material. - Graphene may be the answer to the water crisis many countries are facing. If we make membranes from graphene, they would be able to let water through while filtering out salt at the same time. - One layer of graphene is impressive enough. Can you imagine what you could achieve with 2 layers of this super material? Nothing short of incredibly strong body armor. - If producers start to use graphene in gadget manufacturing, we might end up with smartphones that can be bent in any direction. One of graphene’s main properties is its flexibility. - Graphene can be used in the beauty industry as well. It will be the perfect alternative to current hair dyes, most of which are still toxic and damaging to hair. - Well, you can potentially make graphene at home, provided you have enough time and patience to do so.

HOW TO EAT RIGHT FOR YOUR BODY TYPE
 
04:08
All body types are unique and beautiful, but have you ever wondered why people store fat in certain areas of their body? Some women have a tendency to gain weight around their midsection, others around their hips and thighs. We all have our "problem areas" and weight-loss issues that are based on our body type. Today Bright Side tells you which foods work best for you so you can lose weight and stay healthy. When you start eating right for your body shape, you’ll be amazed at how quickly your body will adapt to the new diet!

Do not eat too many sweets and fast food. Also, you should avoid carbonated drinks, salted nuts, and bakery products. - If your body type is apple, you tend to gain weight in your midsection. Therefore, the perfect diet for you is eating little and often. Eat six times a day, but reduce your portions. You need foods rich in fiber, fruits, vegetables, vitamin C, and low-fat dairy. - A pear-shaped body is characterized by a much larger hip measurement than bust measurement. Go with meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, seafood, greens, and foods with high protein content. Also, add tomatoes and tomato juice to your diet to boost your metabolism naturally. - While this is the most desired body shape, hourglass-figured women tend to gain weight evenly throughout their body and lack muscle tone. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, and consume healthy fats from lean proteins.

10 FOODS TO AVOID FOR A FLAT BELLY
 
05:28
How to get a flat stomach? We all want to have it, but do you know that abdominal fat is the most difficult to deal with? You work out, you try to adopt healthy diet habits, but you don’t see visible results in the mirror. Stubborn belly fat is still there, and it seems that it doesn’t plan to go anywhere. If this sounds familiar to you, we at Bright Side want you to know more about the foods that stand in the way of the perfect belly you’ve always wanted. Other videos you might like: Only 2 Cups a Day for 1 Week for a Flat Stomach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Hcd6yCHePM& 8 Effective Exercises to Get a Flat Belly in Just 30 Days https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqHIiK9dpNs 5 Exercises to Get a Flat Belly in Just 4 Weeks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9CNusqSGDY& TIMESTAMPS: Chewing gum – 0:38 High-sodium foods 1:10 Fast food 1:41 Alcohol 2:06 Soft drinks 2:31 Mayonnaise 3:02 French fries 3:21 Ice cream 3:51 Foods that cause bloating 4:14 "Sugar-free" products 4:40 SUMMARY: - When you chew gum, your brain and stomach receive signals that prepare them for an incoming meal. Plus, gum triggers the overproduction of stomach acid, and, as a result, you feel hungry. - High-sodium foods are really harmful to your health, and they also retain fluids that prevent you from losing belly fat. Adopt a low-sodium diet, and your body will thank you for this. - It’s no secret that fast food contains too many calories that may bring various health problems from heart diseases to cancer. - Some alcoholic drinks are rich in calories, but calories are not the main factor here. Alcohol consumption increases your appetite and confuses the part of your brain that is responsible for the feeling of fullness. - Cola, soda, tonic… We hear this all the time, but it’s still so hard to give up this habit. These drinks contain carbonation, which draws gas into your stomach and intestines. - If you’re a fan of mayonnaise and mayonnaise-based salads, then you should know that this dressing contains at least 80% fat. - As much as you love this food, you should give it up as soon as possible! Fried potatoes, just like any other fried foods, work like a sponge that absorbs saturated fats. - Foods rich in sugar inevitably turn into abdominal fat, that is the most harmful fat in your body. - Foods that contain sugar substitutes such as polyalcohols, for example, are only effective for people with diabetes. These sugar-free products can still harm your body and make your stomach bigger.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, people who exercise lightly see a 49% increase in quality of sleep.

To make sure you’re bringing your knee high enough, you can bend your elbows at a 90º angle and touch your knee to your hand. To make this move harder, add a slight jump to the exercise while you bring your knees up high. - #2. If you have a hard time balancing, extend your arms as you head down, and lower them while you stand. If that’s too difficult, you can place a chair behind you to balance yourself. - #3. Avoid using momentum and letting your leg drop back down as you’ll be missing out on the workout if you do. Keep the movement controlled. - #4. For an easier approach, you can modify the exercise by letting your knees rest on the floor. - #5. This move will target your abdominals and work on your oblique muscles. It’s a great exercise to get rid of love handles. - #6. This is a killer move that will strengthen your core, and it will also tone up your arms, shoulders, glutes, and abdominals. If this is too intense, try holding an elbow plank position: hold yourself up by your forearms for as long as you can. - #7. This move involves your lower back and targets your abdominals and obliques. It will improve your flexibility and strength. - #8. Doing this cool down will ensure that your muscles are nice and loose for when you get up in the morning.

I Adopted Rich People’s Habits, See How My Life Changed
 
09:10
Learn the secrets of success from those who built their own empires from scratch. You can try adopting the habits of super rich people and see how it will help you save money. Successful people are rarely night owls; they go to bed and wake up quite early. So this was the first habit I decided to take on. By the end of the first week, I noticed that I was able to do way more before noon than I could ever do during the whole day. One more week into the experiment I started waking up completely well-rested and excited to start a new day. Self-made successes swear by exercising every day for at least 30 minutes. After just 10 days, it already became a habit. I became more concentrated and calmer. If meditating helps successful people stay on top of their game, it should help me out too. Networking is like currency for successful people. A lot of successful people (like Steve Jobs, for instance) keep a super minimalistic approach to fashion, often wearing the same outfit every day. Truly smart and successful people control their expenses and don’t spend their money on useless things.

It took me 3 days to get the schedule right. -The hardest part here wasn't even the gym itself, it was exercising after working all day. After just 10 days, it already became a habit. I started sleeping better and waking up easier. -Meditation turned out to be a really good way to get my head straight and renew my energy. -Even though I didn’t manage to tackle all my tasks, I was able to do more things in the first week than I did during the entire previous month. -I learned to find common ground with people from the get-go, met a lot of extraordinary individuals, and made some really good friends. -I carried a book with me at all times and read it on the way to work and back home or during lunch. As a result, by the end of the first month, I had finished my fourth book. -I no longer had to waste time every day choosing my outfit, deciding whether or not it matched or if it was trendy and whatnot. -I started out by making a list of everything that I bought every day so that I could see what I spent my money on. This system helped me save 40% of my salary in the first month and almost 60% in the second. -New habits really did completely change my life for the better.

If You Ever See This on the Beach, Cry for Help!

How do you recognize something that you can touch and something you have to run away from as fast as possible? Here is a list of the most dangerous sea creatures you can meet and how to recognize them! There are so many different species living in the ocean! Some of them are beautiful, some are deadly, and some are both. TIMESTAMPS Fire Coral 0:40 Flower Urchin 1:20 Cone Snail 1:50 Portuguese Man-of-War 2:32 Snea snakes 3:54 Lionfish 4:51 Chironex 5:39 Surgeonfish 6:15 Indonesian needlefish 6:59 Triggerfish 7:34 SUMMARY - Fire Coral. These small organisms can sting, and the effect can be not very serious and it can be quite bad. A stung person may have severe pains, feel nauseated and even vomit, which is not the best thing to do when you are underwater. - Flower Urchin is both very beautiful and very deadly. It contains toxins that can cause anaphylactic shock, convulsions and finally death. You can get poisoned if you step on it when you are in the sea or the ocean. - Scientists say that just one drop of the cone snail’s poison is enough to kill 20 people! Just one drop! - The most mind-blowing fact about Man-of-War is that technically we should call it Men-of-War, and refer to it not as «it», but «they», and here is why: it’s an animal that is made up of a colony of organisms cooperating together. Man-of-war has tentacles that can be 30 feet long, which it uses to paralyze and kill fish and other small creatures. - Sea snakes are much more venomous than their land-living friends. As it turns out, they have to be like that because they hunt fish, so what they need to do is immobilize their prey very quickly not to let it escape. - Many people call the lionfish the most beautiful sea creature in the world. You can find them in the Caribbean and Eastern Atlantic. Lionfishes are not deadly — they do have a venom, but it’s not lethal. However, the pain you will experience if you get stung is so severe that people say you might wish you were dead. - Chironex doesn’t have any teeth, but it’s dangerous as hell. If a person gets stung, they will have excruciating pain, red inflammation in the stung area and heart dysfunction. - Surgeonfish are easily spooked, so you should be extra careful if you see one of them. Don’t make any unexpected fast moves. The good news is, surgeonfish are not aggressive unless, of course, you provoke them. - Indonesian needlefish live in tropical and subtropical waters of the oceans. They, as the name suggests, have a very sharp, needle-like beak, and they are especially dangerous when they hurl themselves out of the water. - Triggerfish is mostly friendly, but only until you are a threat to its nest. The most dangerous are females — if you approach its nest even accidentally, it will bite you. Thankfully, the bites aren’t poisonous, but triggerfish have extremely sharp teeth, so the injuries it can cause need serious medical attention. If you know about any other sea animals that we haven’t told about, let us know in the comment section below!

A One-Day Starvation Secret Got the Nobel Prize
 
09:34
You probably know that most tissues in your body regularly replace their cells with new ones. Different organs need their own time to renew completely. And some tissues don't replace their cells at all. But have you ever wondered where the dead cells of your body end up? Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi, a Japanese cell biologist, spent years studying how human cells get rid of their waste. If this process in the body doesn't work correctly, a person can develop type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, some age-related diseases, and even cancer. And it turned out that when you fast, your cells live longer and produce more energy!

Ohsumi was awarded the Nobel prize in physiology or medicine for elucidating "autophagy," an intracellular process that degrades and recycles proteins: By Kyodo/Associated Press/East News, https://www.eastnews.ru/pictures/picture/id/52380261/i/0/t/0 Animation is created by Bright Side. Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The first person who discovered autophagy was Belgian biochemist Dr. Christian de Duve. For this discovery, he got the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1974. - Surprisingly, studies show that they still have approximately the same amount of proteins and carbohydrates in their digestive system as they would if they ate animal protein. - The body can use its own protein in the form of dead and damaged cells and bacteria which have been previously stored away. - If your natural recycling mechanism doesn't work, damaged cells and their parts start to accumulate in the body. And it ends up unable to neutralize cancer cells and cells infected by dangerous viruses and bacteria. As a result, this can lead to various serious illnesses. - Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi found out that autophagy gets more intensive when the body is undergoing some stress. Such stress can be fasting, calorie restriction, or even starvation. - In all his studies, Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi used starvation and fasting to encourage the body to break down toxic cells and get rid of all the garbage. - Intermittent fasting, which is alternating the periods of eating and fasting, can help your body to clean itself. Besides, it can help you to lose weight and speed up your metabolism. - If you're a newbie in the world of fasting and the practice looks a bit intimidating, start with skipping your meals. In general, it's enough to skip one meal a day to boost your metabolism and trigger cleansing processes in your body. Just remember that if you've skipped a meal, you shouldn't overeat at the next one. - One more interesting conclusion you can draw from this research is that, despite what some people think, vegetarians don't suffer from a lack of animal protein. They just get it in a different way.

By the way, a mole can dig a tunnel longer than 65 ft in just one day! - Deep-burrowing species of earthworms can be spotted at a depth of 10 ft. One of them, Drawida grandis, can grow up to 3.5 ft long. - You can still find the roots of tropical forest plants if you dig 23 ft down. Tropical trees need such long roots to store water during dry periods. - When we arrive at a depth of 60 ft, we can see Beijing's Underground City. That's a subterranean bomb shelter consisting of a vast network of tunnels and underground rooms. It’s situated under the capital of China. - In Cappadocia, Turkey, there's an underground complex that probably dates back to the 7th century. Its name is Derinkuyu Underground City, and it's situated almost 280 ft below Earth’s surface. - The Channel Tunnel, connecting the UK with France, is situated at a depth of 377 ft. - The deepest railway tunnel is located at a depth of 787 ft. That's the maximum depth of the Seikan Tunnel in Japan that opened in 1988. - Even if we could get down to 1,001 ft, we’d still be in the danger zone for a B82 Earth-penetrating nuclear warhead. That's its maximum destructive depth. - At a depth of 3,800 ft, there's the deepest bat colony in the world. About 1,000 brown bats spend every winter in a zinc mine in New York. - About 5,920 ft down and we arrive at the deepest part of the 227-mile-long Grand Canyon. Its average depth is 5,282 ft. - The average depth of the oceanic crust is almost 20,000 ft. This is also the depth of the deepest known microbes. They were found in rocks below China's Songliao Basin. -The winner in the category of the deepest artificial hole on Earth is Z44-Chayvo Oil and Gas Well. This shaft is drilled down to a whopping 40,604 ft! That's 15 Burj Khalifas put on top of each other. The shaft is located in the Russian Far East.

Start Eating Turmeric Every Day, The Result Will Surprise You
 
12:09
How do you feel about turmeric? Not a big fan? Well, listen up because you’ll probably change your mind after hearing about these incredible health benefits of this brightly colored spice! So, what changes can you expect in your body after a month of including turmeric in your diet? A 2013 study by researchers in the Department of Oral Pathology at India’s Punjab University proved that this spice can help whiten your teeth. Known as Curcuma longa in the scientific community, Turmeric has been used in traditional Indian medicine for centuries for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antiseptic properties. If you’re struggling with, say, skin issues, hair loss, or even extra weight, then turmeric also can be of help! TIMESTAMPS: Your teeth will get whiter 0:59 You’ll get rid of acne 2:03 Your hair will grow much faster and thicker 3:19 It’ll strengthen your immunity 4:13 It’ll cure a sore throat 5:21 You’ll say goodbye to your cold 6:00 It’ll heal broken skin and wounds 6:33 You’ll feel less joint pain 7:24 It’ll improve your mood and stimulate brain function 8:16 It’ll help prevent cancer 9:14 Your skin will look younger 10:04 You’ll lose weight 10:59 #turmeric #turmericbenefits #curcumin Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - In Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric has been used for ages to treat skin conditions, but it does have backing by modern science. - A study by the Korean BioSpectrum Life Science Institute has shown that the curcumin in turmeric can prevent hair loss by strengthening the hair follicles. - According to researchers at Ohio State University, taking turmeric with your food or in the form of supplements isn’t the best for strengthening immunity since it mostly stays in the gastrointestinal tract and metabolizes quickly. - Indian scientists in the Department of Oral Pathology at Punjab University concluded that, thanks to its antimicrobial properties, turmeric extract can stop the growth of bacteria and parasites and reduce inflammation in the throat. - Turmeric’s amazing antibiotic effects and anti-inflammatory properties also make it an excellent cure for the common cold. - In 2007, researchers at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland studied turmeric’s properties as a cure for skin conditions like scleroderma, psoriasis, and even skin cancer. - In 2016, Dr. Kok-Yong Chin headed a study in the Department of Pharmacology at Malaysia’s Kebangsaan University Medical Centre to find out the effect curcumin has on joint inflammation. Arthritic patients involved in the research took extracts of curcuminoids and enhanced curcumin. - Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles asked 40 adults aged 51-84 to take curcumin twice a day. The scientists monitored their cognition with the help of memory tests and noticed a visible improvement by the end of the trial. - While there’s no 100% effective universal cure against this deadly disease just yet, it looks like you can prevent pancreatic cancer with the help of turmeric. - In 2014, scientists in the Department of Zoology at the University of Delhi tested the anti-aging properties of turmeric. They concluded that genes regulating metabolism, DNA repair, and antioxidant systems actually control human lifespan. - Curcumin alters the composition of fat cells, turning undesirable white fat cells into the healthy brown kind.

However, you’d better not mess with a panda. If you accidentally cross its territory, a panda can seriously hurt you. - There was even a case when a man drowned because of a swan attack. A bird charged the man’s boat and capsized it, and after the man tried to swim to the shore, the swan blocked him. - Anteaters look rather scruffy and definitely harmless. However, pay attention to its claws. It mainly uses them to excavate food, but it won’t hesitate to use them to defend itself. - Tasmanian devils are nocturnal animals which means that they only hunt at night.

10 Traits of Toxic Parents Who Ruin Their Children’s Lives
 
10:22
Raising children is very difficult and no one has the right to judge someone's particular parenting style. However, some parenting mistakes are more dangerous than others and can seriously damage your child’s health. This video will help you find out what actually affects a child’s psyche and teach those who have toxic parents how they can deal with this issue. When raised by narcissistic parents, children suffer from slowed-down emotional development or none at all, will most likely suffer from depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder when they become adults and grow up into an adult that’s either a self-saboteur or a person ready to sacrifice everything to achieve high goals. Children of toxic parents live in constant fear and apprehension. They’ll grow up into teenagers forced to listen to their parents' complaints, adjust to a "complicated situation", put themselves in their parents' shoes, and help, tolerate, and console them. Toxic parents might not see anything wrong whatsoever in telling all the relatives, neighbors, and family friends that deeply sensitive information the child was pressured into disclosing. These types of parents instill an inferiority complex in their kids since they don't wanna see their child try new things and succeed. Their narcissistic self-love generates fear at the thought of their child becoming better, smarter, and more successful than they are. These parents seem to “generously” offer something that their children don’t really need, but any refusal causes resentment. A grown kid starts thinking, "My parents probably just want some company and wanna feel needed." So they accept the help, thank the parents, and offer something in return. But there's no happy ending here because the parents will always remind their children of that "favor" they did for them. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS The effect of toxic parenting on kids 0:53 Traits of toxic parents: 10. "Fear me yet love me." 2:01 9. "You need to deal with adult problems, but you still have no rights." 2:34 8. "Be the best but don't forget that you're not special." 3:14 7. "Open up to me but don't be surprised by ridicule." 3:54 6. "You're bad so don't even bother trying to become better." 4:31 5. "You can be successful but only if there’s something in it for me." 5:28 4. "Do exactly what I say, but it’s your fault if you fail." 6:15 3. "You’re such an inconvenience, but don't leave me alone." 6:38 2. "Accept our help but stop exploiting us." 7:11 1. "Trust me, but I’m still gonna go through your stuff." 7:58 How to handle a toxic parent? 8:44 SUMMARY -When raised by narcissistic parents, children don't feel loved, heard, or seen, believe that how they look is more important than who they really are as a person. They don't feel support when they try to develop their true self. -For toxic parents, an emotional attack is synonymous with love and attention. -Kids of toxic parents probably believe that it's specifically their bad behavior that makes their father abuse alcohol to calm himself down. -Even if their kid performs much better than they did once upon a time, all of the child's achievements are taken for granted. -Toxic parents force their children to be sincere and later use the same personal information against the kids. -Toxic parents eagerly discuss their child's failures and flaws. -They enjoy boasting about their kids’ success so that others envy them. Plus, a successful child is a guaranteed better life for parents. -Parents treat their child like an object: they make all the plans and expect their kids to follow along. -Toxic parents never want to let their children go. Yet they’re always pointing out that the house, the money, and the food belongs to them. -The kids turn into prisoners in either case: if they refuse their parents' help, they’re ungrateful brats. If they accept, they’ll always be made to feel indebted. -If you try to restrict access to your personal territory, your parents accuse you of distrust or even hiding something illegal or immoral. -We don’t pick our parents, and we can’t really change them. The only thing we can change is our reaction to their actions. Limit access to your personal territory. Choose your personal interests over those of your parents.

Shah Jahan started its construction in 1631 to honor the memory of his third wife, whom he loved dearly. - Besides being a monument to eternal love, the Taj Mahal is also a very mysterious place. It hides numerous sealed rooms where no one is allowed to go. - The Great Sphinx of Giza is the largest monolith statue in the world. It's 66 ft in height, 62 ft in width, and 240 ft in length. According to scientific estimates, this construction was built about 4,500 years ago! - With the help of a seismograph, researchers discovered 2 rectangular chambers at a depth of 25 ft. These rooms are situated underground, right under the Sphinx's paws. - Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple is a real pearl of the Indian state of Kerala. Underneath the temple, there are 6 vaults named A, B, C, D, E, and F. The doors leading to these chambers are massive and made of iron. - Many people believe that a fatal curse protects the door leading to this chamber. Hypothetically, this curse can be removed if a saint or sage chants a specific mantra in a proper way. - In central China, buried deep under a hill and surrounded by poisonous mercury, the First Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, has been lying undisturbed for more than 2,000 years. - Sima Qian, the Han dynasty historian, wrote in his "Records of the Grand Historian" that in Qin Shi Huang's tomb, there were scenic towers and palaces for hundreds of officials. - Streams and rivers of liquid mercury surrounded Qin Shi Huang's tomb. The biggest 2 represented the Yellow River and the Yangtze, the major rivers of China.

11 Signs Your Body Is 100% Unique
 
07:37
We’re going to tell you about exceptional physical skills and characteristics found in only a tiny percentage of people around the world (by the way, the rarest one is the first one). Each person has character traits, peculiar only to him or herself. Aspects of the psyche that are — if present in others at all — extremely rare. But did you know that our bodies can possess many unique features too?! TIMESTAMPS You have a flexible tongue 0:39 22% of people are capable of wiggling one ear 1:35 You can wiggle individual toes 2:06 Darwin’s tubercle 2:48 Diastema 3:23 You can raise one eyebrow 3:45 Dimples on the cheeks 4:16 Holes above the ears 4:54 Hitchhiker’s thumb 5:34 Missing tendon 6:05 You can touch your elbow with your tongue 6:40 SUMMARY - Researchers even went as far as to conduct a special study on the subject. 63% of the test participants managed to fold their tongue into a roll, 14% managed to bend it in half, and less than 1% were able to shape their tongue into a triple pipe. - Approximately 22% of people on the planet are capable of wiggling one ear, while no more than 18% can do it with both ears. But this was not always so: our distant ancestors used to be true virtuosos at making all sorts of movements with these body parts. - No matter how you try, you won’t be able to wiggle each of your toes in turn. That’s because only the big toe and the little toe are fitted with individual muscles, while the rest are controlled en masse by just one set of muscles. - The protruding segment on the inside or outside of the ear is called Darwin’s tubercle. The famous scientist once suggested that this feature was the consequence of the fact that early people’s ears used to be pointy. - Diastema is a gap between the front teeth, occurring in about 20% of humans. From the viewpoint of dentists, it’s an anomaly that requires medical intervention. - Scientists believe that early humans were able to wiggle their eyebrows separately — the way certain present-day species of monkeys do at the sight of danger. - Possessed by approximately 25% of the world’s population, dimples are a defect in the structure of the zygomatic muscle, which is responsible for smiling. In people with this physiological feature, a small bundle of the muscle gets attached to the bone. - Approximately 5% of people on the planet are born with a small hole above one or both ears. Interestingly, in the USA, such people constitute less than 1% of the population, while in Asia this distinction is diagnosed in approximately 10% of newborns. - Hitchhiker’s thumb is a physiological phenomenon in which the upper phalanx of the thumb can bend 90 degrees in the direction opposite to the palm. This hyperextensibility is caused by the presence of a special gene, known as the "bendy thumb gene." And such a feature is inherited and occurs in about 25% of people. - Gather all the fingers of one hand together, and tense your wrist. If the tendon on the inner side of the wrist doesn’t become visible, you must be one of the 14% of people who don’t have the long palmar muscle. - It is believed that no more than 1% of people in the world have this ability. To perform the trick, you need to have a particularly short forearm and a long tongue. #humanbody Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

10 Terrifying Places Science Still Can't Explain
 
13:01
How to Learn More about the Earth. The scientific community has made great strides in discovering a lot about the planet we call home. Yet there’s still so much we don’t know! In this video, we’ll tell you about 10 of the most mysterious and bewildering places on Earth that even scientists can’t explain! Magnetic Hill, Skeleton Lake, Boiling River and a Dancing Forest. Plus, some mysterious waters where ships disappear. TIMESTAMPS Skeleton Lake 0:56 The Hessdalen Lights 1:53 Lake Anjikuni 2:41 The Devil's Sea 3:43 The Lake Michigan Triangle 4:44 Magnetic Hill 6:11 The Devil's Kettle 6:57 The Patomskiy Crater 7:57 The Boiling River 9:55 The Dancing Forest 11:16 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -Every year when the snow and frozen water melt, Roopkund Lake in the Himalayas reveals 300 skeletons dumped in it. -The Hessdalen Lights occasionally turn yellowish or reddish, and nobody knows what makes them change color. -Canadian fur trapper Joe Labelle came to a village located on the shore of Lake Anjikuni to find it completely deserted. -Some folks call the Devil's Sea the Pacific Bermuda Triangle since ships and planes tend to disappear there with the same regularity as its North Atlantic counterpart. -The Lake Michigan Triangle has been gaining its notorious reputation since 1891 when a ship disappeared in its waters, along with its crew of seven sailors. -If you turn off the engine of your car and leave it in neutral on the Magnetic Hill, your vehicle will start climbing ahead, possibly at a speed of 12 miles per hour. -About a mile before the river empties into Lake Superior, a rocky outcrop splits it in two. And while the eastern flow drops 50 feet down and keeps flowing into the lake, the western part travels 10 feet down into a giant hole... and vanishes. -Located in Siberia, the Patomskiy Crater is described as a mound with a perfectly circular shape. It’s as big as a 25-story building, sits right in the middle of a wooded area with its top chopped off, and presents quite a sight. -The Boling River really is steaming hot. At a temperature of 187°F, it’s not exactly boiling, but it’s pretty close. -Located on the thin Curonian Spit that divides the Baltic Sea from the Curonian Lagoon is one of the strangest places on Earth. The pine trees in this forest have shockingly unusual shapes: they twist in spirals and circles along the ground.

10 Extinct Animals Scientists Are Ready to Bring Back
 
10:09
Do you know that scientists are almost ready to bring back some species that have been long gone? A T-Rex and other dangerous creatures aren't on the VIP list, so we won't see them in the not-so-distant future. But some of our most beloved characters from the Ice Age movies can be brought back to life! Instead of using the controversial term “cloning,” scientists prefer to say “make un-extinct.” To-may-to, to-mah-to, the idea is the same. An animal that died out thousands of years ago can't be brought back to life unless it's cloned. And therein lies the problem. For successful cloning, scientists need to have almost completely undamaged animal DNA. That's why some species are more likely to be resurrected than others. TIMESTAMPS: The woolly mammoth 2:01 The saber-toothed tiger 3:00 The Moa 3:48 The ground sloth 4:27 The dodo 5:19 Woolly rhinoceros 6:12 The Irish elk 6:44 The Baiji river dolphin 7:26 The Siberian unicorn 8:05 The Neanderthal 8:55 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - While most of the woolly mammoths died out about 10,000 years ago, there was a population of about 500 to 1,000 of them living on Wrangel Island as recent as 1650 B.C.E. The woolly mammoth was roughly the size of an African elephant. - The saber-toothed tiger was about the size of your typical modern-day big cats. It weighed from 200 to 600 pounds and could get up to 13 feet long. The saber-toothed tiger usually had a muscular neck, bobbed tail, powerful front legs, and dagger-like teeth that protruded from the upper jaw and could grow just under a foot long! - The moa was a huge flightless bird that looked kinda like an ostrich, minus the wings. We know of about 10 members of the moa family. Some were no bigger than a turkey while others reached a height of 10 feet, making this bird the largest that has ever inhabited our planet. - Ground sloths are likely to be successfully resurrected since they were still walking the Earth about 8,000 years ago. Even better, some samples of their DNA have already been received from undamaged hairs of this animal. - The dodo became extinct just 80 years after it had been discovered. Its only known habitat was Mauritius Island, where the dodo had been living peacefully for who knows how long until the Dutch showed up in the 1590s. - Besides the woolly mammoth, there’s one more fluffy extinct creature, the woolly rhinoceros, that scientists want to bring back. This animal still lived in the Arctic snows pretty recently, about 10,000 years ago. This furry rhino is quite famous too; it often makes an appearance in ancient cave art, like in the French Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave. - The Irish elk, also called the giant deer, was one more animal that didn't quite manage to survive the Ice Age. This creature mostly died out about 12,000 years ago. But researchers have discovered Irish elk fossils in Siberia that are only 7,000 to 8,000 years old. - The Baiji river dolphin went extinct in 2006, making it the first cetacean (that’s whales, dolphins, and porpoises) to die out directly due to the negative impact of human activity. It's obvious by now that since the extinction is quite recent, there’s a sea of DNA samples at hand that make resurrection pretty much a guaranteed success. - A Siberian unicorn skull discovered in Kazakhstan proved that the animal had actually disappeared just 29,000 years ago. That’s good news for people who wanna see a real unicorn someday! - Bringing the Neanderthal back would be the easiest task of them all. Scientists already have a map of its genome. It’s not a question of whether or not we can, but if we should… Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

11 Secrets to Memorize Things Quicker Than Others
 
10:46
We learn things throughout our entire lives, but we still don’t know everything because we forget a lot of information. Bright Side will tell you about 11 simple memorizing tips that will help you remember everything and improve your memory. TIMESTAMPS Why we forget things 1:04 How to remember everything 2:00 How to memorize something quickly 2:30 How to memorize something for a long time 3:20 Try to understand what you learn 4:17 Learn the most necessary information 5:11 Serial position effect 5:45 Interference theory 6:06 Learn opposite things 7:22 Build your own «mind palace» 7:22 Use «nail words» 8:19 Make up stories 8:40 Use a tape recorder 9:10 Visualize 9:51 Choose only the best materials 9:59 SUMMARY - Your brain is like a hard drive — the space is limited. Remember Sherlock Holmes? He couldn’t name all the planets of the Solar system — this was not because he missed school or something like that, but because he was too smart to have such irrelevant information in his memory. He deliberately erased facts he would never need. This is what your brain does: it protects you from overloading with information. That’s why all new data is stored in the short-term memory, not the long-term one. So, if you don’t repeat it or use it, you forget it very quickly. A German psychologist, Hermann Ebbinghaus researched the memory and its mechanisms. He described the Forgetting Curve which shows that just one hour after learning something new we forget more than half of the learned information. One day later we remember only about 30% percent. Well, you see where this is going. - There is a memorization technique called «Spaced repetition». To keep some information in your head for a longer time, you need to try to put it into your long-term memory. Forced memorization is not very effective in this case because your brain can’t make sense of the information quickly and form strong associations. Here it all depends on the reason why you are learning something. - To memorize something quickly, repeat the information right after learning it. The second repetition should be after 15-20 minutes. You don’t need to return to the information between repetitions — just rest and do something different. Let your brain relax. Repeat the learned material the third time after 6-8 hours. And you should have the final repetition 24 hours after the first contact with the information. Do you know any other memorizing tips? If yes, share them in the comment section below!

Scientists Finally Discovered the Truth About Easter Island
 
10:09
We all know that the easter island heads have bodies – that’s not a mystery at all. But how did the easter island population build hundreds of statues? Scientists have recently solved this mystery and discovered where these people disappeared to and why. For many decades, people's minds have been occupied with the mystery of Easter Island. A remote piece of volcanic soil, far away in the Pacific Ocean... But our planet hosts thousands of such lonely islands, what is so particular about this one? The mystery is concealed not in the island itself but giant stone statues covering it. Who created the world-famous huge stone heads? Did they serve any specific purpose? Where did their creators arrive from and where did they disappear? Well, it seems the answer is finally just around the corner! TIMESTAMPS What do we know about Easter Island? 1:05 Amazing facts about Easter Island 2:18 How have the statues been moved around the island? 5:25 How could create Easter Island monuments? 7:24 What happened to people on Easter Island? 8:09 SUMMARY - Where is Easter Island located? Rapa Nui (which is the name given to Easter Island by its first inhabitants) is the territory of Chile and is situated in the southern Pacific Ocean. And it is so, so far that you can easily consider it one of the most distant places on the world's map. It lies 1,200 miles away from Pitcairn, which is its closest neighbor. - What's the main secret of the statues? Most statues (834 out of 887) were carved from the material called tuff which is, in fact, compressed volcanic ash. Curiously, all the statues except one group face inland. It means their backs are turned to the ocean. Perhaps the reason for that was the belief that the statues were the protectors of the villagers that's why they overlooked the settlement. The only statues not fitting into this pattern can be found at Ahu Akivi, a sacred place for the people of Rapa Nui. - Theories about how the statues had been moved. One of the most popular ones among the lovers of mysteries was the belief that the statues had been created and moved by aliens. But even if you like this theory, we are sorry to debunk it. The stone the statues were built from originates from the island itself. The birthplace of most of the material was an extinct volcano situated in the north-east of Easter Island and not another planet. - A new study about the island. A new study has been conducted recently to specify the maximum number of the inhabitants in the heyday of the island's civilization. The results arrived, and they were quite unexpected. It turned out that as many as 17 and a half thousand people could comfortably live on the island. At least 19 percent of the land could be covered with the fields of sweet potatoes that used to be the main source of food for the population. What is more, the islanders consumed quite a lot of seafood and fish. - Why did people on Easter Island disappear? At first, it was believed that the reason for such a decrease of the population was an ecocide. The natives cut out large forests and palm trees making spare room for moving the statues around as well as agriculture. They thought the trees were going to grow back fast enough. It was a misleading concept. The deterioration of the environment resulted in hunger. And this, in turn, led to wars and cannibalism. Nowadays, however, such a theory has been proven wrong. First of all, Rapa Nui inhabitants seemed to be very talented agricultural engineers. They deliberately fertilized the fields with the volcanic rock. In fact, another research has shown that people had been living on the island for many centuries. And the population only started to decrease when Europeans began visiting.

If You Ever See This on Your Backyard, Ask for Help to Remove It!
 
13:27
Here is a list of 12 super dangerous fungi and plants that might grow in your backyard. Some of them look like they come straight out of hell, which makes them quite unappealing, so you will unlikely want to touch them. But some of them actually look more than normal or even adorable, and they might be even more dangerous to you and your family. Promise you will not touch any of them! There are some plants that can easily kill you. TIMESTAMPS Death Cap Conocybe filaris Destroying Angels Clathrus Archeri Devil's Claw Bloody Tooth Porcupine Tomato Fraxinella Giant Hogweed Death Camas Oleander Doll's Eye SUMMARY - Death Cap is the deadliest of them all. It does not come with a name tag and is easy to confuse with edible straw mushrooms and caesar’s mushrooms. It can be found in different parts of Europe. - Conocybe filaris might look cute and innocent but can cause death, or severe pain. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you have most likely seen it growing in the lawns. - Destroying Angels abundantly growing in North America is super toxic and not exactly edible. They belong to the genus Amanita. - Clathrus Archeri looks like it was sent from outer space to destroy the humankind, or straight out of hell to remind us to be nice people. In fact, that thing is more than real and terrestrial. - Devil’s claws come from Arizona and are even used for basket weaving by Native Americans. - Bloody Tooth likes to live in the forests and mountains of North America, Europe, Iran, and South Korea. - Porcupine Tomato comes from Madagascar but is not even remotely as cute as the lemurs we all love. It can grow 8 feet tall and 8 feet wide in no time. - Fraxinella, also known as burning bush, dittany, and gas plant thrives in the warm climate of southern Europe, North Africa and most of Asia. 16 to 39 in tall and looking sweet and innocent, it is hiding its killer nature behind the little flowers. - Giant Hogweed comes from the Caucasus Mountain region between the Black and Caspian Seas. It came to Europe in the late 19th century, and a few decades later became wide-spread in America, as well. - Death Camas might look like a great addition to a summer flower composition. However, if you see them growing in the field or your backyard, do not bring them home. - The toxins in Oleander are so powerful even honey made by bees that pollinated its flowers can kill or seriously hurt people. Its leaves and sap can irritate and damage your skin. - Doll's Eye might have a more terrestrial origin, but one thing is true for sure. The entire plant contains cardiogenic toxins. If you dare to eat them, they will immediately affect your cardiac muscle tissue and very likely kill you.

12 Signs You're Eating Too Much Sugar
 
08:22
Most people think only diabetics have high blood sugar levels. Yet this isn’t so. Any person can suffer from this and may not notice the harm being done to nerves, blood vessels, and organs. To prevent complications, you should recognize worrying symptoms in time! Pay attention to sign #3 – if you notice it, you should call a doctor immediately. Other videos you might like: What If You Stopped Eating Sugar for 1 Week https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5aYq0ASSHU& Do Not Ignore These 10 Early Symptoms of Diabetes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmnfEX5P3Vg 7 Facts About Coffee You Probably Didn’t Know https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TN0cxBYh8t8& TIMESTAMPS: Constant hunger 0:47 Increased fatigue 1:25 Frequent urination 2:06 Dry mouth, excessive thirst 2:54 Weight loss 3:34 Infectious diseases 4:20 Dry skin 5:10 Concentrating difficulties 5:45 Blurred vision 6:14 Slow healing of wounds and cuts 6:40 Impotence 7:03 Irritability 7:29 SUMMARY: - You’ve just eaten lunch and even dessert but still look for more food. It’s a sign that you probably eat too much sugar. - You haven’t woken up yet, but you already feel tired. There is a simple explanation for this. At a high blood sugar level, your body can’t store and absorb glucose properly. - If the blood sugar is too high, the kidneys cannot reabsorb fluid. - A dry mouth and thirst are responses to severe fluid loss. The hypothalamus, which causes thirst, sends a corresponding signal to the brain. - With a high glucose level, you can lose weight within a short period (even if your meals contain a lot of calories). - Urinary tract infections and yeast infections can occur in both men and women. However, more often they occur in women with high sugar levels and diabetes. - Leg skin problems are a sign of narrowing of the arteries and poor blood circulation. - High sugar levels prevent glucose from entering the brain cells, so the brain experiences difficulties obtaining energy. - Blurred vision is also the result of a dehydrating effect due to high blood sugar, and it also affects the cells of your eyes. - Do you notice your wounds and cuts heal slower than usual? That happens due to vascular damage (it’s a result of high sugar levels). - Alas, difficulties maintaining an erection can also occur because of high blood glucose. - According to research, people with high sugar are more anxious.

Why Japanese Are So Thin According to Science
 
09:37
Why are Japanese people so thin? What do people eat in Japan? While the rest of the world is seeing anywhere from 15 to over 30% of its population severely overweight, Japan has managed to keep that number at just 3.6%. When it comes to health tips, it's better to turn to the country with the longest life expectancy and one of the lowest obesity rates on the planet. If you’re ready to find out how the Japanese manage to stay so effortlessly thin, keep our new video! In Japan, they usually stick to 3 wholesome meals a day that don’t leave them hungry or dealing with sudden cravings. Those who do snack keep it in small quantities and with a lot of moderation. Also, the secret to Japan’s success begins with their diet, which is pretty carb-heavy and low in saturated fats. Their main dishes of choice include vegetables, grains, fish, and meat. Dairy products and fruits are consumed in moderation. They tend to stay away from foods with excessive amounts of salt and sugar, like burgers and soda. TIMESTAMPS: Diet 0:50 No snacking 1:39 Fast food 2:02 Eating on time 2:58 Exercise for kids 3:44 Portion sizes 4:27 A great public transportation system 5:20 Tea time 6:15 Dinnerware 7:25 Food as an experience 8:09 #japan #japanesediet #japanesefood Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The secret to Japan’s success begins with their diet, which is pretty carb-heavy and low in saturated fats. Their main dishes of choice include vegetables, grains, fish, and meat. - Just like the rest of the world, a lot of Japanese people have a hectic schedule that doesn’t leave a lot of time or opportunity to prepare a home-cooked meal. In that case, they can turn to their version of fast food, which is usually a lot healthier and resembles home-style cooking. - Most Japanese people have very regulated meal times. They eat 3 filling meals a day, with breakfast usually happening between 8 and 9am, lunch from 12 to 1pm, and dinner between 6 and 8pm. - It’s a lot more common for Japanese children to walk or cycle to school. Of course, other countries have a lot of reasons why it might not be efficient or safe for kids to hoof it to class. - Portion sizes have been on a steep rise in the last 20 years throughout the world. For example, countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, the U.S., and the U.K. have much larger fast food portions than Japan. - Separate bicycle lanes and plenty of safe areas for pedestrians are common sites in Japan. This allows the Japanese to naturally burn calories as they commute to and from work or school every day. - Tea, especially the green variety, is the number one beverage in Japan. Green tea has been praised for having a ton of major health benefits, like increasing metabolism, burning fat, fighting anxiety, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, to name a few. - The practice of using chopsticks also helps in weight management, since they make you eat more slowly and in smaller bites. This slow process of eating helps people catch when they’re feeling full and avoid eating too much. The fact that food is served on a bunch of plates also slows down the process. - The number one way that the Japanese stay thin has to do with removing distractions and being mindful about the process of food consumption. Eating in Japan is treated with respect.

15 FOODS THAT'LL NEVER MAKE YOU FAT
 
05:25
What can you eat without getting fat? Everyone’s cherished dream is to eat anything at any time and still not gain weight. Is this possible?! Actually, there are foods you can eat without limitations even if you’re crazy about keeping your figure. Sounds too good to be true! These foods are rich in fiber while being low calorie, satiating you without the risk of gaining weight. Lucky you – today, we’ve compiled a list of such foods! And forget the myth that you’ll gain weight if you eat after 6pm. It’s completely wrong! In fact, if you want to stay slim, it’s best to have dinner 3-4 hours before bed. So if you go to bed at 11 p.m., you can calmly eat at 7 p.m. It won’t hurt your figure at all! TIMESTAMPS: Popcorn 0:36 Celery 0:59 Eggplant 1:16 Oranges, grapefruits, and tangerines 1:39 Melon and watermelon 2:07 Algae 2:21 Zucchini 2:37 Cucumber 2:51 Beetroot 3:08 Eggs 3:21 Pineapple 3:35 Apples and plums 3:50 Salad 4:03 Berries: currant, cranberry, strawberry 4:10 Cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower 4:27 #weightloss #excessweight #perfectfit SUMMARY: - If you fry popcorn without butter and sugar (with a little salt, for instance), you can eat it without fear. This way, a portion (about a cup) only contains 31 kcal. - Celery stems are 95% water. They help you lose excess weight and detoxify your body thanks to their diuretic effect. A medium-sized stalk of celery contains only 6 calories! - A portion of eggplant grilled or baked without oil makes for 24 kcal, so you can enjoy this savory veggie without any limitations. - A large amount of fruit is not recommended if you want to lose weight, yet citrus fruits are an exception here. They’re rich in substances like fiber, flavonoids, and vitamin C. - Melon and watermelon are 95% water. With 60-70 kcal per slice, you can eat them day in and day out. These fruits help excrete excess liquid from your body and satiate you well. - Algae, like laminaria, are the best source of iodine. They help your thyroid function normally, keeping your hormones at normal levels and preventing you from gaining weight. - A portion of zucchini is about 42 kcal. It normalizes your salt-water ratio, improves your intestinal function, and can also be used to lower the energy output of main courses. - A cucumber is 95% water; therefore, this vegetable can quench your thirst easily. And the remaining 5% is a source of vitamins and minerals. - Beetroot is a source of nutrients, such as manganese. They help burn fat, drive your muscles, and regulate your blood sugar. An average portion is just 40 kcal! - You can eat eggs at any time of the day, even at night, without fear of gaining weight. Of course, boiled eggs are better than fried ones. One boiled egg contains about 80 kcal! - The bromelain contained within pineapples actively splits fats and helps metabolize proteins. A slice of pineapple is about 30 kcal. - One apple is only 50 kcal. It makes you feel satiated and regulates your digestion. Plums are rich in vitamin C and potassium, which maintain your heart and vessels. - Salad is a great source of folic acid, and you can eat it by the ton: one leaf of lettuce is 3 kcal! - Currants and cranberries are rich in vitamin C, and the former is also a diuretic, helping get rid of excess water. - A portion of diced cabbage is just 7 kcal. You shouldn’t, of course, only eat cabbage and cauliflower, as their nutrients rival with iodine, but you can easily include these foods a couple of times a week.

15 Accidental Inventions You Can't Imagine Your Life Without
 
11:40
Some of the greatest inventions we use every day were created by accident. From the microwave to ice-cream cones, the accidental inventions on this list completely changed our way of life. Sometimes things don’t go according to plan. But every now and then, it’s for the better! American chemist Roy J. Plunkett was doing research for the company Dupont to make fridges safer and invented a strange substance that was non-reactive, non-stick, and resistant to extreme temperatures. We all know it as Teflon. John Pemberton was a pharmacist trying to find a way to get rid of headaches. He came up with a simple recipe consisting of two ingredients: coca leaves and cola nuts combined into a syrup. It was later mixed with soda by accident and became a huge hit. Dr. Spencer Silver, a chemist for 3M Company, was trying to create a super strong adhesive but what he got instead was a “low-tack” yet high-quality adhesive only strong enough to hold up a piece of paper but durable enough to be relocated multiple times without losing its stick. We all know and love it as Post-it notes today. The first antidepressant was discovered in 1957 and was supposed to be a cure for tuberculosis. Wilhelm Roentgen unintentionally put his hand in front of an electron-beam tube back in 1895 and noticed that the radiation passed through solid objects and body parts leaving a shadow. And now we have x-ray imaging! TIMESTAMPS Matches 0:41 Teflon 1:33 Potato chips 2:25 Ice-cream cones 3:16 Coca Cola 4:03 Post-It notes 4:37 Safety glass 5:26 Vulcanized rubber 5:57 Plastic 6:50 Antidepressants 7:34 Implantable pacemaker 8:00 Antibiotics 8:28 X-rays 9:09 Superglue 9:42 Microwave oven 10:20 SUMMARY -British pharmacist John Walker noticed that one of the sticks he used to mix the chemicals had some substance on it that caught fire easily. -American chemist Roy J. Plunkett was trying to make fridges safer and accidentally created non-reactive, non-stick substance resistant to extreme temperatures. -New York chef George Crum decided to change the way he cooked potatoes to avoid customer complaints. -The ice cream booth at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis was running out of bowls and tried using waffles instead of them. -Pharmacist John Pemberton was trying to find a way to get rid of headaches and invented the syrup of coca leaves and cola nuts. -3M Company chemist failed to create a super strong adhesive but gave the world the famous sticky papers. -French chemist Édouard Bénédictus noticed that the beaker that didn’t shatter after falling off his desk had had a thin film of liquid plastic in it. -Charles Goodyear mixed rubber with sulfur and accidentally dropped it on a hot surface – that’s how vulcanized rubber was invented. -Plastic was accidentally created in search for a cheaper alternative for shellac but became something way more useful. -The first antidepressant was discovered in 1957 and was supposed to be a cure for tuberculosis. -Wilson Greatbatch added the wrong electronic component to what was supposed to be heartbeat recording gadget and created the pacemaker. -Scottish scientist Alexander Flemming noticed that mold killed the bacteria in a dish in his messy laboratory and saved a great number of lives with his invention of penicillin. -Wilhelm Roentgen unintentionally put his hand in front of an electron-beam tube back in 1895 … and invented x-ray imaging. -In 1942, Kodak researcher Harry Coover was working on transparent plastic for gun sights when he accidentally created an extremely adhesive substance that stuck to just about anything. -Navy radar specialist Percy Spencer noticed that the bar of chocolate in his pocket melted near a microwave-emitting magnetron. And this is how the microwave oven was invented in 1945!

8 Vital Body Parts You Know Nothing About
 
04:36
The human body is a whole universe with its laws and mysteries, many of which we have yet to unravel. Have you ever wondered why we'd got a groove between our nose and top lip? It’s called the philtrum, and it exists for a reason. Most specialists agree that the philtrum developed in humans in prehistoric times and played the role of smell amplifier. In addition, sometimes a wrongly shaped philtrum tells of autism or other conditions. I'm quite certain you didn't know about that. So, we at Bright Side decided to tell you about 8 vital parts of our body to which we often pay no attention. TIMESTAMPS: The anatomical snuffbox 0:31 The big toe 1:01 Glabella 1:26 Frenulum of the tongue 1:55 Tragus and antitragus 2:17 Tonsils 2:41 Nail cuticles 3:14 The philtrum 3:47 #bodyparts #nailcuticles #anatomy Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - If you stretch your thumb a bit, you’ll see a small triangular pit at its base. This is what medics call an anatomical snuffbox: in the past, people used it to snuff tobacco. - Because of the peculiar shape of the big toe, we can infinitely balance in a standing position, which is one of the main differences between humans and other mammals. - Tap your finger a few times between your eyebrows. If your reflexes are fine, you’ll feel a slight tension in your eyes and want to blink. - This little fold beneath your tongue has an important function: it fixates the tongue in the mouth and makes it less flexible. - Here’s an interesting fact: the names of these little bumps in our ears come from the Latin word tragos — "a goat." The tragus helps us hear sounds coming from behind, amplifying them and detecting their source. - The tonsils are the first barrier protecting us from bacteria and viruses by secreting lymphocytes. When they inflame and get removed, the body still has other protective mechanisms, but it’s safer with the tonsils. - The cuticles an important function: they protect our hands from harmful bacteria that are especially abundant in big cities. If bacteria get into your body through a tiny wound made by cutting the cuticle, washing your hands won’t help.

For millions of people around the world, their biological and their emotional age are two completely different things. Here is an easy but very accurate test that will determine your mental age. RULES The rules are simple: answer the question of picking the first thing that comes to your mind. Seriously, do not overthink. If you get 9 as your mental age, it does not mean your IQ is low; it only shows your perception of the world is young and bright. If you get 60 while you are 22, it’s not too bad either. It just means you are really wise. For each answer, you pick, add a certain number of points. You get 1 point for each time you choose number 1 option; you get 2 points for option 2, and so on.

A cute little child at heart. You’re energetic, interested in everything, and open-hearted. You react emotionally to every event in your life, you need people to share it all with, and a fluffy unicorn to cuddle with. • 20-29 points: 15-19 years old Hello there, teenage soul. You are seeking new emotions. You want to riot, conquer the world, and explore yourself and the people around you. This is the period when you want to find your place in the world. • 30-33 points: 20-29 years old It’s a great age when your true personality is formed. You always know what to do, but you also perfectly remember how to have fun, which is no less important, right? • 34-37 points: 29-55 years old Your mind level is middle-aged. You know that we are responsible for what we do, and you don’t allow your emotions to rule your mind. It’s a great age for intellectual activity and self-realization. Career, family life, or both – this is your time to shine! • 38-40 points: 55 and older The age of stability when you don’t have to prove anything to anyone and know how to live for yourself.

How to Meditate Correctly: 6 Easy Tips for Beginners
 
10:02
How to Meditate. Meditation not only reduces stress and improves your physical well-being, it’s also good exercise for the brain. In case you want to change your life for the better and improve your health and try meditation but don’t know what to begin with, this video is just for you. Our simple guide for beginners will teach you the basics of meditation. TIMESTAMPS How to prepare for meditation 0:48 How to master basic meditation 2:46 How to practice concentration meditation 4:14 How to practice mindfulness meditation 4:59 How to practice mantra meditation 5:29 The benefits of meditation 8:05 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -Meditation requires a certain atmosphere and a good amount of time, so make sure that you won't be interrupted or distracted by anything or anyone. Put on loose-fitting and comfortable clothes. Stretch before you start meditating to prepare your body for it. -Any kind of meditation is done sitting or lying down. Breathe naturally and focus your attention on your breath and how your body moves each time you inhale and exhale. Don't let any other thoughts distract you. Be sure to do it at the same time each day so that it becomes habitual more easily. -All you have to do is focus solely on one thing. Truly focusing your mind on one thing without letting it wander from one point to another takes time and practice. But it brings wonderful inner harmony and a new sense of calm with it. -Mindfulness meditation encourages you to closely observe all the thoughts that appear in your mind. Your task isn't to judge them, you just have to acknowledge each and every one of them and be aware of their appearance. -Mantra meditation basically involves repeating a specific sound, word, or phrase over and over again until you silence your mind and enter a deeper meditative state. “Om” is said to be the first sound heard at the creation of the universe. Om Tat Sat is yet another mantra you may want to memorize. -Meditation reduces the symptoms of anxiety disorders, such as phobias, social anxiety, and panic attacks, to name a few. Other benefits of meditation that have been confirmed by the scientific community include lower blood pressure and blood cortisol levels as well as improved blood circulation, among others.

How to Choose the Perfect Dog Breed Just for You
 
09:03
A complete guide to finding a dog to perfectly match your personality and lifestyle. With hundreds of dog breeds to choose from, which one would perfectly suit you and your needs? Dogs are the funniest, cutest and friendliest ever! They’re not called “man’s best friend” for nothing, right? But with hundreds of breeds to choose from, which one would perfectly suit your lifestyle and needs? Let's find out! But first, while you’re searching for your perfect canine companion, also keep an eye out for 3 Bright Side lightbulbs hidden throughout this video. Once you’ve found all of them, comment the time stamps down below! Good luck! Guard dogs 0:42 Family-friendly dogs 1:22 Athletic dogs 2:00 Lap dogs 2:34 Dogs for busy singles 3:06 Dogs for seniors 3:56 Dogs for an apartment 4:27 Dogs for multi-pet households 5:00 Dogs that do well in hot climates 5:36 Dogs that do well in cold climates 6:15 Hypoallergenic dogs 6:44 Dogs for a newbie 7:40 SUMMARY - If you're one of these people and you want your pooch to look after your home, you should probably consider a Rottweiler, Doberman Pinscher, or German Shepherd. - If you have a big family full of kids or just welcomed a newborn into this world, it can seem challenging to pick the perfect dog breed. But this is the territory where a Labrador or Golden Retriever would be completely unbeatable! - Consider getting a Pointer or a Setter since they’re pretty much built for running. If you want something a bit smaller, a Jack Russell Terrier can be a good choice as well. - If you’re looking for a furry cuddle buddy who will always be happy to laze around on the sofa with you, a French Bulldog or a Maltese is your perfect fit. - Some breeds deal with being home alone better than others: think about getting a Shar Pei or a Basset Hound. - If you’re retired and have decided to welcome a dog into your home, a good option for you would be a Boston Terrier, a Pug, or a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. - . If the dog is small, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll be happy living in smaller space. Consider getting a Yorkshire Terrier or a Bulldog for a small apartment. - Retrievers, Collies, and Spaniels are always happy to have company to play with, so they’ll likely make a great match with your other pets. Terriers or breeds typically used in dogfighting can sometimes be a bit complicated. - Most Terriers can take the heat, and they come in lots of sizes. At the same time, St. Bernards, Samoyeds, and Boxers won't feel good in hot weather. - Breeds that prefer a colder climate normally have a thick double coat and more body fat. So, as you can probably guess, a good choice is a St. Bernard, Malamute, Husky, or Samoyed. - German Shepherds aren't a good breed for you due to their dry skin, which results in a lot of dander built-up. The same goes for long-haired breeds as well. - Getting a dog for the first time ever is both exciting and nerve-racking. There are so many breeds to choose from, and they’re all so cute and adorable! If you’re new to the dog-owning world, then a Labrador, Border Collie, or Poodle will be perfect for you.

7 MOVES TO REDUCE YOUR SIDE FAT QUICKLY
 
03:29
How to get rid of back fat? There is nothing more frustrating than putting on your Sunday best and noticing your back and armpit fat rolls poking out. As a rule, we neglect our backs and armpits during workouts as we focus on the parts of the body we see in the mirror more often like our abs, legs, and butt. We don’t notice how we slouch, depriving the muscles of physical activity. As a result, they become slack, and annoying folds appear. Perform our simple but effective exercises regularly for 2 to 3 weeks to tone up your back muscles!

Then make short bends toward your arm with the dumbbell. Do 3 sets of 15 to 20 reps. - Push-ups are one of the best exercises to tone your back muscles. Get into a high plank position. Shift your center of gravity to your arms. Lower your body, bending your arms at the elbows. Then return to the initial position. - Bow pose. Lie on your stomach, and pull your arms forward. Bend your back, lifting your head, arms, and legs up . Then grab your ankles. Take a deep breath, and stay in this position for a few seconds. While exhaling, relax the muscles, and return to the initial position. - Superman. Lie on your stomach and stretch. Raise both legs and arms at the same time, bending your back. Stay in this position for a few seconds, then return to the initial position. - Lie on your stomach on the ball. Place your legs shoulder-width on the floor and your hands on the back of your head. Raise and lower your shoulders and upper back while keeping your neck straight. - Bridge is extremely effective exercise, but it may be dangerous to do without preparation.

11 Proven Ways Dogs Say "I Love You"
 
10:34
How to know if your dog is happy? Did you know that dogs basically have all the same brain structures for producing emotions that we have? Japanese scientists from the Department of Animal Science and Biotechnology at Azabu University along with specialists from other Japanese universities conducted a study that showed how dogs develop strong emotional connections with humans by staring into their eyes! Dogs are pack animals by nature, which makes them seek closeness with their pack — and you are naturally one of them! Specialists believe that dogs lean and touch their owners for physical and emotional support, seeing them as someone who can protect and comfort them. TIMESTAMPS: Gazing into your eyes 0:40 Bringing you their toys 1:23 Yawning when you yawn 2:10 Sleeping with you 2:55 Wagging their tail 3:43 Raising their eyebrows and showing their tongue 4:40 Cuddling with you 5:40 Leaning on you 6:27 Letting you touch their head 7:13 Calmly watching you leave 7:57 Going crazy when you come back 8:58 #dogbehavior #understanddog #doglove Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Japanese scientists conducted a study that showed how dogs develop strong emotional connections with humans by staring into their eyes. - If your dog proudly runs toward you with their favorite toy or even pushes it forward a bit to encourage you to take it, you can be sure that your pet’s love for you is strong and unconditional. - Simultaneous yawning is another sign that your pet is emotionally bonded to you. So while scientists are still trying to explain this fun phenomenon, you can do a simple test yourself to check if your dog truly loves you: yawn and see what happens! - Dogs are pretty vulnerable when they sleep. Therefore, if they choose to snooze next to you, this means that they trust you like no one else. - A wagging tail held high is a sign of enthusiasm and confidence; a lower tail indicates nervousness. - Dogs produce way more facial movements when humans are looking at them. They can raise their eyebrows to make their eyes look bigger, show their tongue, or even use their secret weapon that nobody can resist: puppy dog eyes! - There's nothing like cuddling with your dog! Scientists from Azabu University (along with other specialists) confirm that your dog enjoys the experience just as much! For them, hugs are a great stress reliever! - Specialists believe that dogs lean and touch their owners for physical and emotional support, seeing them as someone who can protect and comfort them. - Dog training experts, including Sarah Bartlett from Hound Helpers Ltd, are sure that you should never go over a dog's head and try to pet them this way since they naturally perceive it as a threatening gesture. - If your dog feels calm whenever you leave the house, it's a sign that your buddy trusts you and knows for sure that you'll come back. - When you come home, your dogs’ emotions start certain processes in their bodies, increasing the social hormone oxytocin and decreasing the stress hormone cortisol.
