During difficult times, innovative thinking can result in unique solutions. Individuals can uncover unconventional ideas that may seem bizarre, but can be highly effective when tried and tested. That’s how they break away from traditional methods. These fresh perspectives not only provide impressive results, but also offer a renewed sense of hope in finding a way forward. Despite their unusual nature, these outside-the-box solutions work, and there is proof! It only needed some of those who dared to embrace them. They showcase the power of creativity!
Take a look at some such bizarre tips that make life so easy.
1. A coworker told me that when someone has the hiccups, you tell them “you’re not a fish.” The amount of times this has worked has convinced me she’s a witch. I have texted her at least a half-dozen times whenever it worked. At one point, while I had the hiccups, I asked a friend to tell me I’m not a fish. Worked. Sorcery!
2. How to unclog your nose. Close your mouth and pinch your nose, so you can’t breathe. Shake your head up and down until you need to breathe. Remove your hand from your nose and breathe (through your nose, not your mouth). Been doing this for a while now, and it’s pretty effective.
3. Put a small stool under your feet when pooping, to mimic the natural squatting position. Changed my life, literally. During the first week after my discovery, I had a strong urge to tell all my family and friends about it, but had to restrain myself because of how weird that would sound.

4. Our dog was playing with, i.e. destroying, my mom’s shoes, so her sister said that she needed to yell at the shoe. Everyone laughed of course, but the next time our dog was busy with my mom’s shoes, my aunt walked up, grabbed the shoe, and yelled at it. No more shoes were destroyed or even touched by our dog.

5. I had water inside my ears after bathing. So my sister told me to tilt my head, stand on one leg, and jump. I was skeptical about it, but did it anyways. It worked. vinay_awsome24 / Reddit
6. Chewing on bread when cutting onions to stop yourself from crying. My wife told me and I can’t believe it works, but it does. hackthat / Reddit
7. From my 7-year-old daughter. I still laugh about it today. If you’re ever in an awkward situation with someone or need to just go away — you could always pretend to choke on something. I don’t know where this came from, but it’s funny, and it works. You just run away to get a glass of water. Typical-me- / Reddit
8. Blinking twice when reading info from textbooks to sort of mimic photographic memory. Works for me for some reason. fritchbi / Reddit
