50 Pieces Of Advice That Sound Like Total Lies That Are Actually Pretty Useful

These cliche pieces of advice from Ask Reddit are more helpful than they sound.

34. Bribe yourself with fun things to do the not so fun things.

Today I was tired after work but got a little care package in the mail, so I made myself go on the 2.5 mile run I didn’t want to do before I could open the package. Now I’m refreshed and happy that I did the thing I was pseudo dreading, and I have a fun care package to open.

35. Give up caffeine to help with anxiety. I gave it up to help with my vertigo years after this was first suggested to me, but it did help. I’m still anxious as fuck but I’m not reacting to it like a hummingbird on cocaine anymore.

36. Go to the bathroom first thing after having sex.
