Here Are Some 6 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Yourself

Everyone knows themselves better to a point that they can simply define themselves, their lifestyle, the things they like and those they dislike. It would really sound crazy to hear that there are still some facts you probably didn't know yourself yet you have been you for all those years. There are some other issues that we feel are so obvious that we don't even bother asking ourselves about. Here we are going to look at these six things that have been so obvious to you that you didn't even realise they were happening to your body;

1.Every night your body size increases by around 1 to 3 inches. Every morning you are always more than an inch taller compared to the previous day. This is really facilitated by the fact that during day time, gravity is at work causing your body to shrink and it then stretches out during your sleep.

2.The tips of your fingers are extremely sensitive to a point that if they were as large as an ocean, they would still difference between a fish and a stone.

3.Your eyesight is so strong that you can be able to see a flickering candle that is more than 25 miles away from you. This is why we are able to see even the small feet of the ants.

4.Your brains work more when you are asleep compared to when you are awake. Despite the many calculations of coordinating your body movements and the many other activities you do during the day, they are more active at night than you could think. The moment you fall asleep, your brains are turned on to a super active mode.

5.Your nose has a high sensitivity level such that it can be able to recognise more than 50,000 different smells. Your nose has the capability to smell a dead animal that is more than 50 metres away and it enables your brain to locate the direction of the smell.

6.The acid in your stomach is so strong that it can be able to dissolve razor blades. This leads to the renewal of your stomach cells every 3 days. The impact of the acid can easily be felt during the times that your stomach is empty. The acids react with your stomach cells thus causing some stomach pains. It is therefore advisable to take a lot of water every day to dilute the acids and reduce the impact they cause to your stomach cells.
