Listen to music

We all have those kind music that gives us good moods whenever we listen to them. You feel entertained and energetic. Research showed that music reduces the level of stress hormones cortisol.

When we do not have stress, the body produces more antibodies to fight diseases.

 You can reduce pain by using binoculars

For example if you have been injured on your leg, the pain sense can be reduced if you look at the part using binocular. Binoculars make the injured part look smaller and therefore your brain automatically reduces the pain, this is according to an experiment carried out by Oxford University
