Aculief: This Maker’s Simple, Natural, and Drug-Free Device Provides Relief for Even the Worst Headaches

Jon and His Headaches: Jon suffered from bad headaches in college. Some came on after a fun night out, while others sprang up spontaneously. But whatever the cause, Jon often found himself unable to do much when he had one. During a particularly bad headache, Jon told his friend about it, hoping for a piece of advice on how to feel better. His friend’s response changed the course of Jon’s life and the way he deals with headaches…

Acupressure Cures Headaches? Jon’s friend told him about this very specific acupressure point in his hand, located between his thumb and pointer finger, called the LI4 acupressure point. When pinched, it relieved headaches naturally and drug-free. It seemed strange to Jon, but he tried it anyway, and much to his surprise, it worked! Not one to keep the good news to himself, Jon shared this effective, all-natural relief with his friends and family. He quickly discovered, though, that many people already knew about the LI4 acupressure point as well as its two drawbacks: 1) It’s hard to apply consistent pressure to feel true relief, and 2) You have to use both of your hands, so it limits your movement. Understanding this, Jon found a better way…

Acupressure Relief = Aculief: The Aculief works by applying consistent and intense pressure on the LI4 pressure point – a spot that has been used for thousands of years to cure headaches. But what makes the Aculief special is its simplicity. With just a simple clip, you can attach it to your hand, so it applies the necessary pressure to provide relief while still being able to go about your day. All you have to do is place it on your hand and let it do its magic! It’s the simplest, safest, and most effective headache relief (that’s also drug-free!). If you suffer from headaches, the Aculief can help.

✨ Today’s Life Hack ✨

Make Over Your Washer and Dryer with Electrical Tape

We saw today’s life hack and were instantly impressed. If you’ve been staring at the same washer and dryer for years on end, you can jazz it up quickly using electrical tape for a chic upgrade that costs almost nothing! 

Electrical tape is an easy way to add high-contrast striping to your washing machine, giving it eye-catching flair without the expense of an actual designer washing machine (and without the mess of paint!) 

You can also use electrical tape, a stencil, and an xacto knife to cut out small dot decals for a dotted designer look. For the best results, try one of each! A striped washing machine and a dotted dryer complement each other for a brand new look in your laundry room. 

And you don’t have to stick with the traditional black electrical tape – it comes in almost any imaginable color, so you can mix it up for a fun, simple redesign. 

If you want to get really artsy, think of other appliances, cabinets and household items that you can easily give a “facelift” to look brand new. 

If you try it, we want to see it. Leave a comment with pictures of your DIY washer and dryer makeover!

🗣️ Maker Quote of the Day

“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other opinions drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition; they somehow already know what you truly want to become.” – Steve Jobs
