Life is not easy. There is no instruction manual telling us how to spend our days – we just have to guess or copy others. But as this video shows, we have a lot wrong.

Matthew Santoro made a video explaining the mistakes we do every day that might blow your mind.

  1. Holds a drink
    When we drink something in a wine glass or bottle, we tend to hold the body of the drink. But Santoro informs us that our hands conduct heat, which affects the temperature of the drink. Instead, we need to hold beer in the neck of the bottle and wine in the stem of the glass.

  1. Eating bananas
    We open the banana from the stem. But the monkeys pinch the other end of the banana, turn it in a quarter, and peel it.

It peels more evenly and makes it easier, Santoro said.

  1. Brush your teeth
    We need to brush our teeth gently for about two minutes. Despite what you’ve been told, brushing your teeth before or after a meal is a bad idea.
  2. Cool drinks
    You can simply put a bottle in the fridge or freezer to cool off on a hot day. But the best thing to do is to wrap it in tissue paper first.
  3. Wear headphones
    If your headphones keep falling out of your ears, it’s probably because you’re not wearing them properly. Try wrapping them around the top of your earlobe, for example:
  4. Microwave oven
  5. Microwave ovens are designed to heat food evenly, but cannot do so when food is piled up. Try spreading the food on the edge of the plate as follows.
  6. Cooking
  7. Did you know that the hole in the end of the frying pan lid is for holding the spoon?
  1. Sleep
    The best sleeping position is on your back, but if you sleep on your side, place a pillow between your legs to keep your back straight.
  2. Tie the knot
    Do not pinch the knot, take the end and twist it. Then push the twisted part into the knot.
  3. Fat
    Sitting on a toilet seat is “not ideal,” says Santoro, and we should lie on our laps. Place your feet on a chair in front of you (no pun, there) to get your colon in proper alignment.
