7 Very Good Life Hacks That Will Change Everything
You’ll wonder why you never thought of them before!
1. Dealing with shoelaces
Shoelaces may be all the rage, but it seems like all practicality is thrown right out the window for the sake of style. Sure, stumbling over your shoe strings is a small price to pay for looking sharp, but what if I told you there was a way to get rid of all the bad things about shoelaces? Using this little-known life hack, you can wear shoelaces and walk. Simultaneously! Simply take one shoelace in one hand, and the other shoe lace in another one of your hands, then begin to mash them together. With any luck, the two shoe laces will get wrapped up in each other as they are mashed together by you. The more you mash them together, the more likely the two shoelaces are to get wrapped up in each other. With enough practice, you will be able to mash your shoelaces into one another so well that they will remain wrapped up in each other for up to an hour!
2. Sitting in chairs with those handles on the side
Everyone’s favorite chairs are the chairs with those handles on the side. We can all agree that it is a good thing to have a place to put your hand while you are sitting on a chair, something to grip tightly during a particularly scary movie, or something to rub up and down when you are very lonely. But did you know that you can totally life hack some of the chairs with those handles on the side? All you have to do is grip the handle and pull it backwards towards you, almost as if it were a lever. If you pull back on the chair handle far enough, your chair will transform! The bottom of your chair will raise up to create a table that you can put your food on, and the back of the chair falls backward like a fun ride. This little secret will change the way you sit on chairs with those handles on the side forever.
3. Overcoming stage fright
Here’s one life hack that you’ve probably all heard of, but I’m here to tell you that it actually works! We’ve grown up hearing about this little trick to overcome stage fright, but how many of us thought it would really help? I’ll echo the advice of parents and drama teachers around the world: If you’re feeling nervous, imagine that everyone in the audience pees into their own mouths because they like to do that. No matter how much of a fool you make of yourself, there’s a good chance that it is not as ridiculous as peeing into your own mouth simply because you like to do that. Once you imagine that everyone in the audience pees in their own mouths for no other reason than because they like to do that, all your fears will go away. Try it!
4. Being less lonely on top of your bed
Everyone gets lonely while they lay on top of their bed and don’t leave their house for a few days sometimes. During these times, it would really help to have someone to lay on top of your bed with you and like you a lot. Sometimes it can help to imagine that that is happening, but it can be a tough thing to do, especially for people who have trouble imagining that things are happening when those things are not really happening. Here’s a life hack for that! Get a picture of the person you wish would lay on top of your bed with you and like you a lot (you can take a picture of the person yourself and develop it, or just print one from their page on the website www.facebook.com). Once you have the picture, place it on top of your own body with the picture facing down. If you look at it, you will notice that now your body is actually touching a picture of the person you wish would lay on top of your bed with you. Once you realize that your body is touching a picture of their body, it becomes much easier to convince yourself that your body is touching their actual body, and that the person is truly on top of the bed with you. From there, it’s not too much of a stretch to imagine that this person likes you a lot. They’re laying on top of your bed with you, aren’t they? Life, consider yourself hacked.
5. Making many friends
If you’re finding it difficult to make many friends, we have just the life hack for you. The first thing you need to know is that friends are people who like each other. If people like you, they are more likely to agree to being your friends. If many people like you, it’s possible that you will end up with many friends to have fun with. The best way for you to get as many people to like you as possible is actually pretty easy: tell a lot of lies about yourself. Tell a lot of lies to anyone you want about anything you want, but make sure they are things that make you sound better, so that many people like you and you end up with many happy friends to take thumbs-up pictures with. If you tell the truth about yourself even once, you will never have any friends. Not only does lying about yourself make many people like you, it also gives you confidence, creating a never-ending cycle that ends with great friendship. If you’re doing it right, you will notice that the more you lie about yourself, the more friends you will get, until at last you find yourself with many friends. It’s as simple as that!
6. Improving your self-image until it is very good
Something that’s almost as important as what people think of you is what you think of yourself. Unfortunately, feeling good about yourself is something that many people find sort of difficult! We’re here to help with our second-to-last very good life hack. It’s not easy to have a good self-image when your house is full of constant reminders of how bad you are. Fix this by finding every picture of you in the house and putting it face down. Make sure it is completely flat on the table or shelf so that the very sad reminder can’t peek out at you from underneath. Once you have done that, move on to step two – turn your mirrors backwards. If your oven has a shiny, reflective door, make an effort to not crawl around on your hands and knees while in the kitchen. The same goes for your TV and living room. Without all these pesky reminders, you will find that your self-image will improve, and it will keep improving until it is very good!
7. Re-purposed grocery bags
Grocery bags are great for putting groceries inside, and they’re great for the environment to boot. But did you know that they are also great for one other thing? Using this life hack, grocery bags can make all your pain go away. Put the bag over your head and tie it as tight as you can around your neck. Make sure no air can get through, then hold it as tight as you can for as long as you can. Do not be afraid, because soon you will never be sad again.
