Four Important Life Facts You May Not Have Already Known

Essential Facts of Life- It can be extremely hard to keep up with all of the different information that is available these days, despite the fact that so much of it is right at our fingertips. Thankfully, the good news is that there are some things that are much more worth knowing than others, including facts that have to do with life.

Here are four of the most important life facts that you may not have already known that you should consider making note of.

*First and foremost, perhaps one of the most important life facts that you may not have already known is that faking happiness can actually cause you harm in the long run. In fact, a study published in the Academy of Management Journal back in 2011 took a look at the overall behavior of bus drivers, which is a job that involves people be required to have all sorts of friendly interactions on a daily basis, and this study discovered that these individuals actually withdraw from their work while, at the same time, putting on a smile all for show, which is a situation that could end up having serious long-term negative health effects.

*Another important and interesting fact about life that you may not have known involves craving ice. More specifically, when it comes to craving ice, this is actually considered to be a symptom of iron deficiency according to the Mayo Clinic. This is a condition that is also commonly known as pagophagia and is also a way of cooling inflammation in the mouth that is caused by an overall lack of iron. In other words, if you end up feeling like chewing ice, it may be a good idea to consider making an appointment with your doctor in order to determine that nothing may be seriously wrong.

*One other important life fact that you may not have known is that sharp knives are actually safer than knives that are dull. Due to the fact that a sharp knife is able to easily cut through food, this means that you only need to apply a slight amount of pressure whenever you use them. It also means that you will be more likely to cut whatever it is that you’re intending to cut instead of cutting your hand. When it comes to dull knives, these aren’t able to easily cut through food, and they can also often cause injuries whenever any resistance between the dull blade and food surface gives way all of a sudden, which can cause the knife to suddenly fly out of control. Due to having to use so much pressure to cut something with a dull knife, this can result in deep gouges and cuts.

*Another useful life fact that you likely may not have known involves medicine bottles. More specifically, you should always throw away the balls of cotton that always come inside these bottles. The main purpose of the cotton is to keep the pills inside safe during the shipping of the medication and is always meant to be removed once the bottle has been opened. This is because the cotton itself can end up collecting moisture due to how absorbent it is, thereby causing the pills in the bottle to quickly deteriorate.
