Other than ridding you of headaches and several other aches, aspirin pills can assist you in breaking down the gunk that’s plagued your whites. Add 5 pills of aspirin in water and let it dissolve. Add your not-so-white whites in the mix and let them soak for a while. Next, stick your whites into the washer.

Also, be sure to steer clear of colored variants of aspirin if you don’t want to add a pale shade of the pill's color to your whites. 


Find a Stress Relieving Object

If you have something near you that might help you calm yourself, use it. Grab a pillow and hit it. If you can find a stress ball, squeeze it. Use something that does not hurt you. 

If you can’t find anything to help you healthily release anger, go to the gym and take it all out on the barbells and dumbbells or kick and punch a punching bag.

Using a clamp

If you’re aiming for accuracy and cost-effective use of ammo, use the following system (assuming you have access to the requisite equipment and your rifle is “on paper”):

Step 1: Mount your rifle into the clamp such that it rests facing the target. Adjust the clamp to position the scope’s crosshairs precisely on the bullseye.

Step 2: Load up the chamber with one round, and fire.

Step 3: Now assuming the shot’s recoil caused the rifle to go slightly out of place – re-position the clamp or the rifle to set the crosshairs again on the bullseye, without touch the scope adjustments.

Step 4: Next, use the scope adjustments and move the crosshairs away from the bullseye and onto the bullet hole that resulted from the previous shot. If the range is too long, you may need to circle the hole with a bright, visible color so you’re able to see it through the scope. Remember that you’ll need to turn the scope adjustments towards the opposite direction (as you would when moving the point of impact towards the bullseye) since you’re moving the crosshairs to the point of impact.

Step 5: Alright now that your rifle is sighted in – let’s verify if everything went right. Repeat the 1st and 2nd step: adjust the rifle and clamp to reposition the crosshairs back on the bullseye WITHOUT touching the scope adjustments, load, and fire. You should hit the bullseye.

Wash hair less frequently

It sounds a little counterintuitive, but washing your hair less frequently can actually lead to healthier, frizz-free hair.

The detergents in shampoo are very effective at washing your hair, but they can also wash away your hair's natural oils that are necessary for healthy hair.

When you wash your hair every day, you're stripping your hair and scalp of its natural oils that keep your hair shiny. Your scalp, now dry, has to produce even more oils to maintain health. This leads to hair that is simultaneously greasy and dry - it's producing too many oils that are getting stripped away before they have the chance to do their job.

Try washing your hair every other day to slowly allow your scalp to adjust. Then try moving on to once every three days, then on to once a week.

Mix with Energy Drinks

This is a pretty cheesy way to hide your alcohol. The best part about mixing your drinks with Gatorade, Redbull, etc., is that they mask the bitter taste of hard liquor. How many adults know the taste of an energy drink? Even if someone does decide to take a chug of your 'energy drink,' there's almost no chance that they become suspicious of the contents of your bottle.

Make a To-Do List

When you have a busy day ahead and at the start of the day, you find yourself procrastinating, pull out your phone or your diary to make a to-do list. If you don’t want to write it down just sketch it in your mind. 

Think of what is the first thing you should do and what to do after that and after that. Be creative and find ways to accomplish each task faster and better. Faster does not mean poor. 

You have to give yourself enough time to do everything perfectly. If you have to cook and the food takes 30 minutes or 40 minutes, plan on doing something in the meanwhile such as making a call or organizing the kitchen shelves that you are planning to get done today. Incorporate achievable tasks in the to-do list and keep the goals realistic.

Laugh more often

If you’re laughing, you’re probably not going to be as anxious. Laughter has a bunch of benefits. It relieves your stress response and also relieves tension by relaxing the muscles. Long term benefits of laughter include an improved immune system and consistently good mood.

It’s obviously hard to laugh when you’re just sitting and staring at a wall. So try watching a comedy sitcom or hang out with your funniest friends.

Use specific hangers

This sounds like a stupid little detail, but it makes a huge difference. Using only one type of hanger helps mentally when you walk into your closet to choose your outfit. Having different colors and types of hangers can be overwhelming for your brain. It makes choosing an outfit feel frustrating. It also just looks much nicer when you use just one kind of hanger. The best hangers are the felt ones; they will keep your clothes from sliding off flimsy hangers and ending up on the floor. Use specific hangers

Discreet Flasks

Lots of companies are now selling casual daily products with hidden flasks to store alcohol. Even some phone cases these days have an 8-ounce flask hidden under the camera. They don't even look conspicuous. You just need to make sure that you don't drink it in front of anyone. Holding the phone case up to your mouth is pretty suspicious if you ask me.
