These days, life is full of complexities. From one day to the next, you never quite know what problem is waiting around the corner – so you always need to be on your toes.
You can breathe a sigh of relief, though, as there are plenty of hacks here to help make life that extra bit easier. From health to entertainment, keep reading to learn some life hacks you’ll wish you knew sooner.
Get virtual healthcare
Healthcare is great – without it, life would be tough.
However, not many people enjoy sitting in doctors’ waiting rooms for appointments that were scheduled an hour ago. Plus, people also don’t like calling reception to make an appointment only to find out they’re placed 53rd in the waiting queue.
Thankfully, modern healthcare is evolving and leaving these frustrating moments behind. How is it doing this? Well, primarily through virtual appointments.
Now, what is a virtual appointment? Simple. It’s just a normal doctor’s appointment, only it’s conducted via video call, rather than in-person. Yes, that’s right – the dream is now a reality. Instead of having to drive 10 miles to your nearest doctor, you can now have a virtual appointment – whenever you need it – from the comfort of your home. All you need is a smartphone, laptop, or computer with working a working camera and audio. To get started, check out Reliant Urgent Care.
Listen to music for free
The music industry has changed over the past 10 years. Now, CDs are a thing of the past, as streaming has taken over.
Many people are put off by streaming because they think that it’s too expensive. If you’re one of these people, you’re in luck, as here’s a smart hack for you to try.
Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and YouTube Music all offer free trials, usually up to 3 months. You should activate a trial for one of these providers and then, once the trial has ended, start a new trial with the next provider.
This way, you’ll be able to listen to free music for over a year until you eventually run out of free trials.
Use Vaseline to improve the strength of your cologne
There’s no worse feeling than buying an expensive cologne only for it to produce the weakest, most underwhelming aroma of all time. Every guy can relate to this. Thankfully, there’s a way to stop this madness. All you need is a cheap tub of Vaseline – a product that can be used for almost anything.
Put a little bit of Vaseline on your finger and then dab it onto your wrists and the back of your neck. This will help to improve the strength of your cologne, which means you’ll get plenty more compliments at parties and other social events!
Drink from your soda can the right way
When you crack open a can of soda, the name of the little metal device you push down is the ‘tab’.
After you’ve opened your soda, turn the tab around so that the hole in the tab hovers over the opening of the can. From here, you can stick a straw through this hole. Now, your straw will never fall out, as it will be securely held in place. This is super helpful for when you’re in a movie theater or streaming Netflix at home.
Use back tap on your iPhone
This hack is for all the iPhone users out there.
Many people don’t know that iPhones come with built-in back tap compatibility. Just by tapping your finger on the back of your iPhone (roughly around the center), you can trigger certain commands, such as screenshots.
To turn on this feature, update your iPhone to the latest version of iOS. From there, go to settings, accessibility, touch, ‘Back Tap’, and then choose your preferred commands. For example, you can set two taps to trigger ‘volume up’.
