Hey guys! It's honestly 5 am in England and I'm trying to function properly without tea and it honestly hurts my heart to not have that milk tea every day but I'm trying to get through it. But anyway, today’s article is going to be on life tips and hacks, I know it sounds dodgy, but it will make sense when you see the first hack. But this article is just to help people live their life a bit easier using these hacks.

Side note, go listen to Eden’s new album, Vertigo. Honestly, I'm in love with it but my favourite songs from that album are: wings and take care. If you love him or love his songs come ahead and message me, we can be friends.

Okay back to the article, so here are some tips and hacks to help with life in general.

You

You are the only person that matters and if you can’t take care of yourself or love yourself then you aren’t getting the best out of this life. Even if you’re going to do a face mask once am month, GO FOR IT. That’s still taking care of yourself and I understand how people are busy therefore they won’t have time to do it more frequently but whatever time you have make sure to spend some time relaxing and taking care of yourself.

People, what’s that?

If you value other people’s opinion like I do then ask yourself, ‘are these people going to be with you in the next ten years?’ and ‘ do they know you like you know yourself, for their opinions to matter?’

Recently I had a friend who was hurt by what her family had said to her but I told her if they really knew you they wouldn’t of said those nasty things and to be honestly if those nasty comments come from family or friends, easy drop them. Family or not, if they knew you well enough they wouldn’t dare to talk shit about you. Bare in mind that I'm not telling you guys to run away or do something drastic, I'm just saying that just know that what they say doesn’t matter because they don’t know the real you.

Do what you want

In any aspect of your life, if you want to do something then do it. If its unreasonable and stupid, then make sure you do get advice from someone you trust because they would know you to know if it will work out or not. But the whole point is don’t let other people choose for you, when your heart desires something else.

Wear makeup for fun

Personally, I don’t wear makeup and I don’t think I would wear it in the future except special occasions but my sisters wear makeup all the time. My oldest sister had worn makeup to cover her ‘imperfections’ and I was quite young, and I didn’t know why she put make up when she was already pretty. But my other older sister wears makeup for fun and wont mind leaving the house without it.

But the point of makeup is to have fun and create new looks. If you want to wear makeup make sure you’re not doing it because you think you’re ugly or need to hide you’re flaws, wear it because you like it and love to create new looks.

Water

Water should honestly be your best friend, because it has so many benefits so don’t hesitate to glug down a litre or two throughout the day. It helps clear your skin and helps with losing weight, don’t think it’s too plain because there are many recipes of detox water that are beneficial and taste nice.

Learn

I hate school with a passion, period. However, when I learn something by myself that makes me feel happy. I read all the time, and lately I’ve been reading the news to be more aware of the world, and I think that’s important as it makes you more aware and make you realise that you are safe but other people around the world aren’t doing well.

I do history for my GCSEs and right now we are learning about conflict in the middle east and this topic had gotten everyone so interested and aware as that realise that it s still happening right now, and it started around the end of the first world war. What I’m trying to say is that even when you’ve finished university don’t stop learning, find ways to learn a little bit more about a specific topic or things that are happening around the world.

It gets better

This is the most important tip I can ever, don’t stay trapped in your mind thinking your life is going to carry on being horrible and there is nothing you can do about it. I am struggling right now and trying to juggle a lot of things at the same time but at one-point I was ready to give up, but I imagined the future with me in a different country with my friends and my husband and I suddenly didn’t want to give up because these 5 years have been hell. And if nothing is changing, you can make that change happen, don’t depend on some knight in shining armour to save you. You can be your own hero and find away out.
