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.

10. Stick to the same sleep schedule on your days off that you follow on days when you have to be somewhere at a specific time (like school or work days).

I spent my whole life sleeping until noon on weekends, thinking I was storing sleep in some imaginary sleep bank. I recently started waking up early on weekends, and now I don’t have trouble waking up when my alarm goes off during the week. Plus I have all this extra time to do stuff because I’m not sleeping all day.

11. You’re not hungry you’re thirsty! I would eat a big meal and wonder why I still felt hungry. It is because I wasn’t drinking a glass of water with my meal. Now if I notice I am hungry after eating normal portions I have a glass of water and wait 5 minutes before I continue eating.
