15 So Useful Tips And Tricks To Make Your Life A Whole Lot Easier

When breaking up with someone, make a list of the reasons that made you break up with that person. If you’re thinking of getting back together, read that list

We tend to idealize our partners after a while. We forget their defects and the reasons that made us get away in the first place. This list is really helpful in those moments when we feel lonely and tempted to call again.

When introverted and going to a party where you don’t know a lot of people, go a bit earlier. With less people you’ll be more likely to connect with some folks

Keep a regularly-updated note with your S.O.’s favourite things by category, add to it as much as possible

Any time my girlfriend mentions something that she loves or we share a new consumable she really likes, it goes into an Evernote note.

Each item in the list is grouped by type (alcohol, clothing brand+size, chocolates, etc.), and each item is a link to a Google Image Search so I can easily spot it when shopping. Let’s say I am passing by the wine store on the way home. With one search I can pull up her favourite red wine or prosecco, with a link to what the packaging looks like.

This might come off as cheating a little, but your S.O. appreciates the time and care you take to make sure you remember, not the inhuman ability remember things without electronic help.

You will never “feel like” doing something that you should do. You just have to do i

Something I’ve learned over time is that when you have something you need to do, there’s a moment where you’re like “man, I need to do that,” but think: “I’ll just do it later when I’m in the mood.” So far as I know, that mood never comes. So the moment you think “man, I need to do that,” is the moment you have to do it. It isn’t easy, but it’s the only way to get it done. Plus you’ll feel good afterwards.

Adjust your growing pets collar regularly, you should be able to fit at least two fingers underneath.

If your reading is much better than your listening comprehension in a language you’re studying, watch movies with closed captioning for the hearing impaired– you’ll start linking the sounds to the words better.

If you come across an unexpected increase in money, don’t go telling people about it

While it’s tempting to be happy and outspoken about a stroke of good fortune – whether it’s a lump sum payout, a tax break, a significant salary increase or a lottery ticket – it’s in your best interest not to blow your horn about it.

Aside from potentially making your friends needlessly envious, people will start coming out of the woodwork for financial help. You’ll be amazed and disappointed at how many people you suddenly owe favours to, how many just can’t pay the rent, or are stuck in a bind, or expect you to shell out to because you’re now “rich”. This especially includes toxic family members.

Be generous if you feel like it but keep it close to your chest.


When trying to take a picture of your dog or cat, make a long, high pitched squealing sound and they will look straight at you and pose perfectly!

Replace “but” with “however”, “although”, or even just a pause so your listener avoids negating the first part of your sentence

When people hear “but” they automatically negate the first part of your sentence. This is why many people say “I’m sorry,but…” Isn’t a real apology — because whatever the second part of the sentence is trumps the sorry.

I’ve found its especially useful when you’re trying to avoid being accusatory or when you’re trying to bring up an issue without putting the other person on the defense because the pause required to replace the “but” will also make you consider how to phrase the rest of your thought better.

Person: You handled that customer well, but you can’t be so blunt.

Other person: you handled that customer well. However, next time you can try telling them in a kinder way.


Turn your headlights on in any type of inclement weather even if you can see fine

They’re not for you to see, they’re for others to see you better in any type of weather.

If you know someone who considers themselves an aficiando of something, do not attempt to gift them that something

If someone is a fan or experienced with some type of product, they will know more about it than you. Don’t give a professional chef a knife. Whatever he/she has on their kitchen is probably much nicer and more expensive than anything a layperson of that field would buy. If you know someone who frequents wine tastings and has a collection of wine, they probably have at least one (if not several) wine membeships. The gesture to get someone something they would love is wonderful, but the actual gifts fall short.

If choosing to go this route this way, ask the gift receiver or someone close to them their preferences or do some snooping to see what they already have. There are experts out there to help find something comparable!
