Hiccups always seem to come at the most unexpected times, as well as the times you really don’t want them to pop up. As annoying, embarrassing and scary as hiccups are at times, there are a few tried and tested ways to get rid of them. Unfortunately, the methods are often as weird as the process of hiccuping itself, and, when carried out in public, can make you look insane.
Use Your Hands
Our nervous system is responsible for many things. It can give us gas, make us feel nauseous – and even give us the hiccups.
What this basically means is that you need to divert your nervous systems attention to something else whenever you’re hiccuping.
A tried and tested tip on how to get rid of hiccups is to press into the palm of your hand with your other thumb. Press deeply, press hard, and wait for the pain. This method might sound crazy and masochistic, but what you’re doing is creating a distraction which could put an end to those hiccups.
