Here is a roundup of some of the latest life hacking strategies we’ve been hearing about here at Lifegooroo.
Stay in the Loops Your best chance to be a vital link in any social network is keeping in touch with people who no longer talk to each other. This makes you the interconnector that both groups of people will feel know more than they do. This makes your position in each group stronger because when they want to find out what’s going on with those other guys, they’ll come to you. This works in any social group whether it is old college friends, business associates, or family members.
Life Hack a Hangover One of the easiest ways to recover from a long night out drinking is to take a nice long shower the next morning. This won’t just shock your body into waking up (especially if you take one in just cold water), it will also help wash away the residue of alcohol that your body has excreted overnight, and even start to rehydrate your body. You’ll notice how much better you feel as soon as you towel off.
Get Rid of Mosquitoes Without Chemicals There are some plants that mosquitoes can’t stand to be around. Surround your bed with these green herbs and you won’t wake up with annoying bites during the summer months. Mosquito-repelling plants include mint, peppermint, lemongrass, thyme, lavender, and basil. These all double as spices you can add to your food too.
Stop Your Shaving Cuts Without Using Toilet Paper When you have something important to do that requires you to look your best, the last thing you want is cut yourself shaving while you’re getting ready. To avoid looking like an idiot who has toilet paper all over your face use a multivitamin to seal you cuts fast. Vitamins A, D, and calcium all play a part in blood clotting. Traditionally, shaving sets came with an applicator that contained similar materials that you would use to rub on your shaving cuts. Take the vitamin, break it in half and moisten it a little bit. Rub the inside of the vitamin on your cuts. Now wait and see how quickly the bleeding stops.
Stealth Moves Save You Embarrassment If you need to pick your nose in a situation you can’t step away from, such as in a meeting or an important lecture, take a tissue and cover your nose and mouth as if you had to blow. With the tissue cupping your other hand, pick your nose. Make noises that imitate blowing your nose.
Let the Mic Drop When you are in a conversation or a negotiation, stop talking after you give your final stance or pitch. This will force the other person to come up with something to say. Psychologically, the next person to talk in this situation is the person who is going to cave on their end. Hold tight, and make sure not to speak until the person on the other end of the conversation picks up what you laid down.
