5 Clever Life Pro Tips

Finding the higher ground in life doesn’t always require difficult decision making, sometimes all you need are a few clever life pro tips..

If you’re like me, you enjoy finding new and creative ways to optimize your lifestyle. Anything from dental hygiene tips to financial planning advice, the more abstract (yet effective), the pro tip, the better! So I rounded up five clever life pro tips that I recently came across, to share with you. If you're looking for tips specific to iPhone, check these out. Otherwise, let's go!

1. Wash your clothes inside out

This is something I feel like we've known for a long time, but never actually did. When you reverse your clothes for washing, you guarantee a thorough cleaning of the inside, which is the most important part to clean, as it rests directly on your body. Also, this slows the wear and tear of designs and logos on the outside. Nothing worse than a graphic tee with a faded look.

2. When taking someones' photo, count past three

This is a clever tip I found on Reddit. When you're setting up to take a photo for an individual or group, count to three as usual, but then keep counting past three until they start laughing. Then take the picture. Easy way to ensure smiles!

3. Brush your teeth before dessert

Are you ambitiously trying to avoid eating sweets before bed (or just in general)? Try brushing your teeth right after you eat dinner and notice how just thinking about the taste of dessert mixed with fluoride turns you off of the idea entirely. Side effect: your dentist will start sending "I miss you" cards.

4. Mark the correct side of the USB

This is one of those simple things you’ve always been able to do, just never thought to actually do it. Use a piece of tape to mark the up-side of your USB cable or device. Now you always know which side is up and can put it in correctly on the first try.

5. Nice hotels indicate safe parts of a city

When you’re planning a trip, find the safe parts of town by locating the 5-star hotels. These areas are typically much nicer and safer. Even if you’re staying in a 2-star hotel, you’ll at least know where to spend most of your time.
