5 Lifestyle Hacks To Help You Around The City
The city is a big place and not designed to make things easy on you on your own. It’s easy to get caught up by some of the more difficult aspects of navigating your way around town. Here’s a list of lifestyle hacks to help you think outside the box to make life easier.
Use Body Language to get through crowds
Most of your time navigating through crowds is spent finding gaps between other pedestrians. There’s actually a more effective method. If you are walking towards people who are going the opposite way, don’t try to move around them. Look past the group into the distance and they’ll instinctively move out of your way.
Use public Wifi without signing up to it
Saving your data by using public wifi is great except for the hoops you have to jump through. Signing up with your email to something that will spam you when you’ve only used it once. Adding “?.jpeg” to the end of the web address of the site you’re trying to visit will bypass most free wifi logins.
Get onto the subways/trains quickly
When waiting on the platform look out for areas where the paint lines are chipped away the most. This is where the doors are most likely to come to a stop and you can beat the crowds to get on.
Use social media for cheap nights out
Every city has its share of cultural events most nights. Unfortunately, a lot of these have an entrance fee. Find bars and venues on facebook, most places will promote free events to try and drum up more people as with events like that, they’re only making money from drinks.
Get free drinks by getting involved in events
A lot of events will give a free drink to people for participating. From karaoke to stand up comedy, they don’t expect you to be good, just give it a try. If you’re willing to embarrass yourself a bit you can reap the reward and maybe find a hidden talent.
