I’m not sure when the term “lifehack” first occurred.
I remember it starting to pop up around, I don’t know, 2013 maybe? It was a term that started getting applied to every asinine half-baked craft involving hot glue and old soda bottles that anyone could come up with.
But if you ask me, those are not the true hacks of life. The ideas in these posts? They’re the real deal. Let me show you how you can improve the following situations:
15. Being chased by an animal
Which animal doesn’t really matter, they all know the rules of the jungle.
If you're being chased by an animal, just lay on the ground for 5 seconds. The 5 second rule will prevent the animal from eating you.

14. Chip consumption
Don’t lie to yourself, you’re gonna eat them all.
Sometimes I buy two bags of lays and empty one bag into the other so no one knows I’m eating two bags worth of chips 😭

13. Drinking efficiency
Now that’s what I call a well-balanced diet.
Not eating all day so that u can get drunk off 2 beers. Its called financial health look it up idiot

12. Job hunting
Just hope your friends are good actors.
there's literally no law that says you can't put your friends down as your references and pretend they were your boss at an old job, literally there's no law that says that

9. Healthy cooking
Who on God’s earth decided we needed to start eating kale?
If you cook your kale with a little coconut oil, it makes it easier to scrape into the garbage.

They’re called universal for a reason, baby.
7. Valentine’s day
You’re never alone if you’re forever haunted by your thoughts.
6. Accidental spills
Go from trashy to cultured in no time!
5. Furniture assembly
A stand is a stand, man.
4. Landscaping and measurement
This is actually pretty clever. Take a thing of known height and compare.

You don’t wanna be caught unawares.
2. Kitchen decorating
It’s a hit at all the parties.
With those kinds of tips, you should be out hacking away at your life in no time!
