On average, most people blink around 15 to 20 times each minute. That means, while you’re awake, you probably blink: 900 – 1,200 times an hour. 14,400 – 19,200 times a day.

Endorphins stimulate the brain’s pleasure center, and because they come in a quick burst, so does the pleasure. “Once a sneeze starts, you can’t stop it because it’s a reflex. So, the stimulation starts, sends a signal to the brain that there’s something irritating inside the nose,” Boyer said.

All fish, snakes, ghekos, slinks and some lizards do not blink as they do not have eyelids. Their eyes are protected by a nictitating membrane or a simple adipose eyelid.

When we blink, our eyeballs roll back in their sockets and don’t always return to the same spot when we reopen them. But this misalignment signals the brain to activate eye muscles to realign our vision.
