Put your Kindle on airplane mode to keep library e-books as long as you want. If it’s not connected to the internet, it can’t return them.
If you’re working on a large project, listen to the same album or short playlist on repeat. That way it’ll fade to background music as you work, but when you’re lacking the motivation to start working on it again, turning on the music will kick your brain into action and picking it back up will be easy.
If you’re going to rant about something or explain to people how to do something, make sure you’re correct. Even if you’re mostly correct and have a really good point, that one little thing you don’t have right will shoot a hole in your argument so big you’ll never be able to come back from it—especially if you’re ranting on social media, where you have the time and ability to check yourself.
Use paintbrushes instead of makeup brushes for eyeshadow. They’re cheaper and work like a charm. (more…)
Wash your hands after going to the bathroom. You’ll have more friends, and fewer strangers will judge you.
If you’re making coffee, brew a full pot. Once you’ve had your fill and the rest has cooled off, put it in a sealable and pourable container and stick it in the fridge for iced coffee. (I suggest these.) One pot will last at least three or four days.
