Sleeping on your left side.

You may not think it matters which side you lie on when you go to bed but studies have shown you're better off snoozing on your left side. This position improves blood flow to your organs, helping the spleen and intestines work more efficiently. There's also a big bonus for heartburn sufferers since several studies have found that sleeping on your left side apparently reduces heartburn. No one knows the exact reason for this, but one hypothesis holds that left-side sleeping keeps the junction between the stomach and esophagus above the level of gastric acid. It seems very odd but it's all true and the good thing is that left side sleeping is a cool and easy trick everyone can use.

Number 19

Don't brush after eating after all!

Since you were a kid, you were probably told to brush your teeth after every meal, it turns out that's not such a great idea. Acidic food or drinks, and even healthy foods like fruits and vegetables are often very acidic and can soften your tooth enamel. This raises the risk of tooth damage with brushing. A better idea is to wait 30 to 60 minutes after a meal to brush those pearly whites.

Number 18

Avoid bright lights before bed.

You may like to relax before bed by reading on your tablet, surfing the internet, or updating your calendar on your phone. Unfortunately, even if these things are relaxing, they can prevent you from sleeping soundly. It's the blue light produced by all our electronic devices, any kind of bright lights at night interferes with the production of melatonin, a hormone that helps us sleep. Several studies have linked exposure to bright light at night to increase the risk of several forms of cancer, heart disease, and obesity. Some preliminary evidence, suggests lower melatonin levels may increase the risk of cancer. If you like to read, a paper book is a better idea than an e-reader. But if you have to use something with a screen, a pair of amber-tinted glasses can reduce the blue light and help you sleep better. Now that's a bright idea!

Number 17

Sitting correctly at a computer.

Sitting at a computer can leave you with all sorts of aches and pains and pore posture is a big part of the problem, admit it, you sat up straighter just hearing that! Improving posture is a good start. But there are other changes you can make to reduce strain when sitting, raise the height of your chair, put your keyboard and mouse on your desktop surface, and move your monitor and laptop screen so it's at exactly the height of your face. That way, you won't strain your neck looking down.

Number 16

Exercising longer is not a good way to lose weight.

While experts agree exercise has many health benefits, it is not a magic bullet for weight loss. In fact, physical activity is usually only a tiny percentage of your daily calorie burn. Most of the calories you burn result from your resting metabolism, in other words, the basic functioning of your body like breathing! Additionally, many people overeat after exercise because it makes them hungry. If you do exercise, longer sessions may seem like a good idea but you'll actually get more metabolic benefits from a shorter, more intense workout, than a longer one. High-intensity interval training, or HIIT, helps you burn more calories after you finish exercising. One study found those who do a HIIT workout, burned 100 calories more in the following 24 hours than those who did a longer, lower intensity, sweat session. This can have some weight-loss benefits if you don't follow your workout with a box of donuts. Instead, pack a healthy snack to eat after you exercise as HIIT is most effective when paired with a healthy diet. I'm not saying that exercise is bad and you shouldn't do it, what I'm saying is that exercise alone is not enough or as important as most people think. Instead, put more focus on maintaining a healthy diet and the way you exercise.

Number 15

Smoothies, energy bars and even some salads are not healthy.

Now that you know diet and calories are more important than exercise when it comes to losing weight, you may think ordering a salad is the way to go. Salads certainly can be healthy vegetables like lettuce, kale, and carrots, tend to be low in calories and high in vitamins and fiber. But some restaurants add so much cheese, salad dressing, and sometimes even fried meats to their salads that they can top 1,000 calories. If you're dining out, ask for dressing on the side so you can use a small amount and limit the extra calories. You can also ask for the cheese on the side, or left off entirely. If your salad comes with meat, ask for it to be grilled instead of fried. Smoothies and energy bars often have an unhealthy amount of calories as well and it's always a good idea to check the label before buying. Or read a restaurant's nutrition info online before ordering.

Number 14

Loosen your tie to reduce your risk of glaucoma.

Wearing your tie too tight can be uncomfortable not just for you but also for your eyeballs. There's a reason some guys think of a necktie as a noose. In one study of 40 men, adjusting a tie to slightly uncomfortable for only three minutes raised intraocular pressure, a leading cause of glaucoma. So loosen up that tie, or better yet, just use a clip-on. Then you'll also save yourself the stress of having to tie it every morning.

Number 13

Easy on the positive thinking, it can make you feel more depressed.

You know the feeling, you're having a bad day and someone attempts to help by telling you to look on the bright side or have a positive attitude. If you find this annoying instead of helpful, you're not alone. Studies have shown positive thinking provides only a marginal improvement in the mood for those with high self-esteem. Those with lower self-esteem, actually felt worse. Probably because there's nothing more depressing than a fake cheer when you're having a lousy day. Many people actually felt better when making a list of negative things about themselves. This may be because once you've identified your faults, you can work to improve them.

Number 12

Beware of the new car smell and open those windows.

Many people love that new car smell, so much that it's even sold as a variety of air freshener. But getting a good whiff of the real thing could actually be bad for your health. The inside of a new car contains plastics, adhesives and fabrics and when these are concentrated in a small space, like the inside of a new vehicle, they can release harmful gasses, especially in high temperatures. As much as you might love that new car smell, it's much healthier to roll down the windows and let it escape, especially in warm weather.

Number 11

Yogic breathing improves lung function and blood flow to the brain.

Pranayama sounds like something you might order at that new Indian restaurant downtown. But it's actually a yoga breathing principle, yoga is healthy in general, but if you don't have time to bend yourself into a pretzel, you can still benefit from pranayama. This technique brings more oxygen to the blood and brain. And it can improve lung function, just don't take any deep, calming breaths in your new car.
