We don’t think this life hack needs any explanation. “Take good care of your body, and it will take care of you, and stretch every day.” a Redditor said.

Tai Chi and Qi Gong are really good ways to meditate and stretch at the same time for any people out there with high anxiety.” another added.


2. Don’t Care What Others Think

Not caring what others think” can free you from the pressure of meeting other people’s expectations and allows you to focus on your goals, values, and priorities. It promotes self-confidence, authenticity, and happiness in your life. 

“Don’t care what people think of you. I mean, care enough to be a pleasant person, but don’t let others’ opinions of you dictate your life. Oh, and stand up for yourself!” a user said. 

“Stop the thought process that standing up for yourself makes you a bad person. It doesn’t make you a bad person; it prevents people from taking advantage of your kindness and allows you to be kind to yourself.” another added.


3. Drink Water

Drinking water promotes overall health and well-being. It is an inexpensive and easily accessible resource. Here’s what Redditors have to say on water.

 “Water is life. Drink water every day and lots of it!” said one.

“I used to have all sorts of severe stomach issues, and doctors could never find anything wrong. I started drinking 1 gallon of water a day for this workout routine I was doing, and within a month, all of my stomach issues cleared up. Water is important, and so many of us don’t drink enough of it.” said another.


4. Be Yourself

“Be yourself. No one cares that much.” a user said. 

“One of my favorite quotes is, “Be yourself; everyone else is taken.” Another added.

“Be yourself. That way, if people argue with you, they are arguing with you, not a shadow puppet repeating things their family or friends say.” a user said.


5. Don’t Waste Time

Time is a finite resource and cannot be reclaimed once it’s gone. Be intentional with it. “Time isn’t infinite, don’t waste it with people you can’t stand or don’t want to be around, no matter what.” said one.

 “Preach. Cut toxic people out; life is too short to torture yourself.” said another.


6. Stop Trying Being A Cool Kid

Trying to be a cool kid can be exhausting and often leads to a lack of authenticity. Embrace your true self, quirks, and all, and focus on building genuine connections with others.

“Spent too long trying to be like the cool kids. Now I’m older, I always tell my son. Try to be something other than the next them. Be the first you.” said one.

“I wish I had a parent tell me that when I was young! Great advice for a kid.” another added.


7. Set A Routine

Setting a routine can be incredibly beneficial for your overall well-being. It helps establish good habits, reduces decision fatigue, and increases productivity. It can also provide structure and stability, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve your overall quality of life.

“Set a routine for bedtime and get on a sleep schedule. Quality sleep makes life so much better for physical and mental health.” a user added.

“It’s said to be better for your health if you get up at the same time every day.” said another.


8. Express Love: Tell Your Loved Ones You Care

Don’t wait for a special occasion to express love. Take the time to tell your loved ones how much you care, and make sure they know how important they are to you. 

“Tell your loved ones that you love them. Say it out loud.” a user said. 

“I told my wife I loved her multiple times a day for any reason and no reason. When I lost her to cancer, I never had to regret that I didn’t say it often enough. We both knew how much we loved each other because we said it often.” said another.


9. Silence and Patience Are Helpful

“You will learn everything you need to if you just stay quiet and watch long enough. This is particularly helpful if you are trying to get someone to tell you the truth. Cops always do it, and you don’t have to be mean or anything about it. Just sit there with a calm, small smile and stare at the person. Don’t say a word. Most people will just start blabbing away to fill the quiet.” a Redditor said.


10. Learn To Apologize

Learning to apologize is an important life skill. It shows humility, empathy, and respect for others. A genuine apology can mend relationships, prevent misunderstandings, and promote personal growth. It also demonstrates emotional intelligence and can increase self-awareness and empathy.

“Learn how to sincerely apologize. Own it, and convey how you could’ve behaved/done differently. Take the time to not be defensive and actually acknowledge whatever you caused.” said one.
