Life Hacks 1

Here are the clever life hacks I’ve picked up in the last few years of my life.

They might work for you or maybe not. But just try them anyways.
These little tips, tricks, and tweaks can save you buckets of time and hassle.

  1. Never use bleach and ammonia-based cleaning products at the same time. The mixing of these 2 things releases toxic vapors called chloramines, which can kill you if inhaled.

2. If you happen to be in a burning building and there is a lot of smoke, crawl to find the exit with your feet not your head in front of you. This way you won’t risk falling down a staircase and getting seriously injured.

3. If you are near-sighted and you lose your glasses and are in need of something on the fly, quickly try to make a tiny hole using your index finger and thumb. The image you see through that will always be sharper. You’re using your finger as if you’re using binoculars.

4. If you ever get a flat tire, take a picture of it on your phone, so for future reference, you can use it as an excuse.

5. Sometimes changing your pillowcase daily can help with acne. use a clean t-shirt over your pillow to accomplish the same thing.
Note that the perfumes in regular detergent are sometimes an irritant to the delicate skin on your face.

6. When in an argument, act as if you are being recorded. This will prevent you from saying stupid things you don’t mean.

7. Forgot someone’s name? Say “what was your name again? They’ll respond with their first name, albeit somewhat hurt that you forgot.
Then emphatically reply, “No, no… your last name”. Much relieved, they’ll happily oblige. It works.

8. Take a picture of your fridge if you sometimes forget what to buy at the grocery store.

  1. If in an emergency you need to get through a locked door, kick hard right next to the handle, near the lock, and avoid using your shoulders or back. The lock will break more easily.

10. Never make fun of someone’s laugh, someone’s smile, or how dance. Let them express happiness without trying to harsh their joy.

11. If you park in a big parking lot, take a pic of the letter/number marker so you can find it easily.

12. If you are at a hotel and run out of chargers, the TV usually has a USB plugin.

13. If you fall into cold, open water try to float first to calm yourself down and resist the urge to swim. With your breathing and body under control, you can then start swimming to safety.

14. When heating leftovers, space out a circle in the middle, it will heat up much more evenly.

15. On the rare occasion that you are under attack by a moose — those creatures are huge! — try to find an opportunity to get behind a tree.
Moose have a blind spot in their peripheral vision, they will lose you, and you can escape easier.

16. How to always know which headphone is left, even without looking.

17. Just soak a small face cloth or paper towel and apply vinegar to the burn till the skin feels cool. Apply it immediately after the burn and it will ease the pain and prevent a blister.

18. If you don’t have a dryer and need to dry your clothes quickly, here’s what you can do. Place your wet clothing on a dry towel.
Roll the towel with the garment inside. Pick it up, and twist it as tightly as possible to squeeze out the excess water.
After you’ve drained the excess water, hang your garment on a hanger to fully dry.

19. Set a timer for 10 minutes every time you walk through the front door to clean/tidy.
Stops it from building up and goes really quickly so doesn’t feel like a chore.

  1. Keep plastic wrap on the banana stems to make them stay fresh for over a week or longer. Cut bananas off as needed.

21. Always go see a movie and then get dinner so you can talk about the movie afterward. It makes you way more comfortable on dates.

22. Don’t fill in the ‘To” field in an email until you are completely done writing it. Saved me a lot of badly written or half-finished emails – and emails I never ended up sending because I had time to think better of it.

23. If you left home and forgot to brush your teeth or you ran out of toothpaste, chewing an apple can help with bad breath.

24. If you sit for several hours a day, find a simple routine to stretch out your hips and chest.”It’s an absolute game-changer for people who suffer from chronic lower back pain as a result of being hunched over a desk.”

25. If someone gets stabbed, do not remove the knife from the wound. The knife — or any other object — acts as a plug to the injury and reduces blood loss. Try to apply pressure around it with a piece of fabric and call an ambulance

26. Appear more confident. The bottom line is to be interested, not just interesting.

27. If you have a spare minute at home, always take a few seconds to just pet your dog or cat and really appreciate them. Pets are only a part of your life but you are your pet’s entire life.

  1. If you put something down temporarily, say it out loud. (“I’ve put my phone on the dresser.”).”This engages many more areas of the brain (particularly the language centers) which creates a richer memory and makes it less likely you’ll forget where you put it.
