10 Hacks to Save Yourself from Messed Up My Life Situations
- Stop taking so much notice of how you feel: How you feel is how you feel. It’ll pass soon. What you’re thinking is what you’re thinking. It’ll go too. Tell yourself that whatever you feel, you feel; whatever you think, you think. Since you can’t stop yourself from thinking, or prevent emotions from arising in your mind, it makes no sense to be proud or ashamed of either. You didn’t cause them. Only your actions are directly under your control. They’re the only proper cause of pleasure or shame.
- Let go of worrying. It often makes things worse: The more you think about something bad, the more likely it is to happen. When you’re hair-trigger primed to notice the first sign of trouble, you’ll surely find something close enough to convince yourself it’s coming.
- Ease up on the internal life commentary: If you want to be happy, stop telling yourself you’re miserable.1https://www.lifehack.org/articles/featured/10-simple-ways-to-save-yourself-from-messing-up-your-life.html People are always telling themselves how they feel, what they’re thinking, what others feel about them, and what this or that event really means. Most of it is imagination. The rest is equal parts lies and misunderstandings. You have only the most limited understanding of what others feel about you. Usually, they’re no better informed on the subject; and they care about it far less than you do. You have no way of knowing what this or that event really means. Whatever you tell yourself will be make-believe.
- Take no notice of your inner critic: Judging yourself is pointless. Judging others is half-witted. Whatever you achieve, someone else will always do better. However bad you are, others are worse. Since you can tell neither what’s best nor what’s worst, how can you place yourself correctly between them? Judging others is foolish since you cannot know all the facts, cannot create a reliable or objective scale, have no means of knowing whether your criteria match anyone else’s, and cannot have more than a limited and extremely partial view of the other person. Who cares about your opinion anyway?
- Give up on feeling guilty: Guilt changes nothing. It may make you feel you’re accepting responsibility, but it can’t produce anything new in your life. If you feel guilty about something you’ve done, either do something to put it right or accept you screwed up and try not to do so again. Then let it go. If you’re feeling guilty about what someone else did, see a psychiatrist. That’s insane.
- Stop being concerned about what the rest of the world says about you: Nasty people can’t make you mad. Nice people can’t make you happy. Events or people are simply events or people. They can’t make you anything. You have to do that for yourself. Whatever emotions arise in you as a result of external events, they’re powerless until you pick them up and decide to act on them. Besides, most people are far too busy thinking about themselves (and worrying about what you are thinking and saying about them) to be concerned about you.
- Stop keeping score: Numbers are just numbers. They don’t have mystical powers. Because something is expressed as a number, a ratio or any other numerical pattern doesn’t mean it’s true. Plenty of lovingly calculated business indicators are irrelevant, gibberish, nonsensical, or just plain wrong. If you don’t understand it, or it’s telling you something bizarre, ignore it. There’s nothing scientific about relying on false data. Nor is there anything useful about charting your life by numbers that were silly in the first place.
- Don’t be concerned that your life and career aren’t working out the way you planned: The closer you stick to any plan, the quicker you’ll go wrong. The world changes constantly. However carefully you analyzed the situation when you made the plan, if it’s more than a few days old, things will already be different. After a month, they’ll be very different. After a year, virtually nothing will be the same as it was when you started. Planning is only useful as a discipline to force people to think carefully about what they know and what they don’t. Once you start, throw the plan away and keep your eyes on reality.
- Don’t let others use you to avoid being responsible for their own decisions2https://www.wikihow.com/Save-Yourself: To hold yourself responsible for someone else’s success and happiness demeans them and proves you’ve lost the plot. It’s their life. They have to live it. You can’t do it for them; nor can you stop them from messing it up if they’re determined to do so. The job of a supervisor is to help and supervise. Only control-freaks and some others with a less serious mental disability fail to understand this.
- Don’t worry about your personality. You don’t really have one: Personality, like ego, is a concept invented by your mind. It doesn’t exist in the real world. Personality is a word for the general impression that you give through your words and actions. If your personality isn’t likable today, don’t worry. You can always change it, so long as you allow yourself to do so. What fixes someone’s personality in one place is a determined effort on their part—usually, through continually telling themselves they’re this or that kind of person and acting on what they say. If you don’t like the way you are, make yourself different. You’re the only person who’s standing in your way.

Worst Life Hacks You Should Never Listen To
- “If you have a bad hangover from alcohol, you should eat fast food or something really unhealthy/salty because it will help absorb the alcohol.” Somehow bad will cancel out bad. Yeah - that doesn’t work.
- Also, anyone who tells you “Don’t care what others think about you.” Don’t take that advice literally.
- People’s opinions of you will be important in a lot of situations in life. Make a good impression. And categorically, any person that has ever given that advice to me, has not gone very far in life.
- “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” Well yeah. But “shots” often require money, time, and sacrifice.

Awesome, Funny & True Life Hacks from Healthsoothe – Some Can Save Your Life or Someone’s
- At least once in your life, have a job that you don't do for the money.
- Never lie to your doctor.
- Don't be the guy who tells a kid that Santa Claus doesn't exist.
- Unless you're in the first row at a concert, don't try to record it with your phone. The video and audio would be crap and you'll never watch it again.
- If you buy a $10000 dress for $5000, you haven't saved $5000, you've spent $5000.
- Don't wait for something bad to happen for you to become a good person.
- Being in a beautiful relationship > Being single >>>> Being in a shitty relationship.
- Ladies, if you like him, tell him. He wouldn't understand subtle hints, strong hints, or obvious hints. Just tell him.
- The handsome, royal gentleman/the gorgeous, intelligent woman that you want to find so hard, probably won't be in the nightclubs.
- Take her somewhere different. Movies and dinners are played out. She wants to tell her friends great stories. (Thank you, ladies.)
- Sometimes, girls don't need advice, they just want someone to listen to them.
- Spend time with your dad and mum as often as you can. You'll miss them when you can't anymore.
- If you are on verge of getting raped, hit his testes as hard as you can and see how he will fall, and if they are in the group, don't perform this brave stunt instead tell them you have HIV.
- If you’re being tied up, puff yourself out as much as possible so it’ll be easier to wiggle out of. Tense muscles, inhale deeply and stretch out your arms and legs to make more space.
- A person who is drowning doesn't look like people drowning on TV. When someone is drowning, they rarely cry out, can't wave their arms around, and will often just bob/sink at the surface for a very little while, often gasping, before submerging. To expand, they will be vertical in the water, head back, mouth open. You have around 30 seconds to get them out before the average person goes under at this point. It is usually a silent process. If you are at a pool and it gets quiet, get alert.
- Do not pull objects (knives, glass, etc.) from a deep wound. It might cut an artery when you pull them out. Put pressure around such an object to slow bleeding till emergency responders take over.
- If you fall into water, don't panic. You don't have to be able to swim; you just have to float. Hold your breath and let yourself bob to the surface.
- If you are lost in the desert, or any deserted area, the important thing you can carry to increase your chances of being found is a small reflective mirror. Anytime a plane flies overhead you can reflect light toward them and you greatly increase your chances of being found. This seriously is more important than carrying more water with you.
- If you find yourself hurt in a public place, direct your pleas to one person, not to the crowd because everyone will think that” somebody else will help you”. The bystander effect.
- If someone is in trouble and you want to leap in to save them, make sure you have a way to get out yourself.
- When having a heart attack, you don't swallow an aspirin, you chew it. People panic most of the time and swallow it.
- It is extremely difficult to hit a moving target. If somebody is trying to shoot you, keep moving, change directions unexpectedly, roll on the ground and get up again. Keep doing this until you are out of range and/or can find safe cover.
- If you ever find yourself on a horse that is out of control - pull one rein so that its head is all the way around, touching your foot/its shoulder. A horse cannot buck, bolt, or rear in this stance - it can run madly in a tight circle but it will tire and stop eventually.
- If a girl you don't know suddenly adds you on Facebook and wants to see your dick, that's a scam. They'll blackmail you.
- If you get a tooth knocked out, don’t put it on ice to take to the hospital- put it in milk. Also, if you get a body part severed, put it in a bag and then put the bag on ice; don’t put the body part directly on the ice.
- If someone tries to kidnap you DO NOT let them transport you. Fight, scratch, die, do anything because if you don't, the place they take you will be much worse.
- Do not delay getting out of a burning building. The flames are not what will kill you. The smoke will get very thick and toxic very quickly and you will not be able to see the way out. A point suggested by Karishma Bhagat - It is better to stay close to the ground. Also, take a cloth, wet it with water or even your spit if you do not have access to water immediately, and cover your mouth with it. This greatly decreases the chance of inhaling the toxic gas.
- If someone is trying to rob you, give them everything you have. Throw your valuables away from the robber in a particular direction & run as fast as you can in the opposite direction. That shit is replaceable, you are not. Don't try to be a hero. They might be armed.
- After someone's fainted, don't immediately try to sit them up. It's a natural reaction but it can also be fatal, keeping them lying down will allow the blood to flow through their whole body and then they'll be okay.
- If you are hunting or in a forest and encounter bears; if it's black, fight back. If it's brown, lay down. If it's white, goodnight.
- Did a fly fall in your oh-so-expensive soup at a fancy restaurant that charged you exorbitantly? So now you’re going to call the waiter and ask him to give you another bowl of soup. But now, as he barges in with another bowl of that hot soup, you’re not really sure if this soup was cooked again and replaced for your safe consumption or the waiter just took that bowl of soup back to the kitchen and flinged-off that fly with a spoon and brought you back the same soup to sham-gratify your concerns? To make sure that you’ve not been mocked up by the waiter, saturate the food you’re sending back to the kitchen with table salt. That way, you’re sure that the spoiled food has really been substituted by a freshly cooked one. Bon appetit!
- You know, those times in life when you have a grand thought, a fantasy, a wild gesture, a silly prank, anything really, anything that peaks your senses and makes you feel like you are living? If so, then take advantage of such moments. When your brain is telling you to call it a night, but your heart says to keep going, listen to your heart and do something new, do something fun, do something legendary and your brain will thank you for it later.
