25 Hairstyling Hacks That Will Make Your Life Easier

We all have days where the last thing we want to do is spent 30 minutes messing around with our hair trying to get it to look decent. Worse still are the mornings, when we don’t have time to wash our hair but it’s looking a little greasy. Well worry no longer! Here are 25 hairstyling hacks you can use to make sure you never have to have a bad hair day ever again!

1. If You’re In A Rush Or Your Hair Takes Ages To Dry, Give It A Half Wash.

    Most of the oil that we refer to as grease in our hair is in the ends, but oils that make our hair look voluminous and lustrous is at the roots. So instead of washing all of your hair, focus on the ends to create a clean but natural looking style.

    2. Next Time You’re In The Sauna, Make Sure You Have A Hair Mask On.

                                                    How to Cultivate Continuous Learning to Stay Competitive

                                                    How to Cultivate Continuous Learning to Stay Competitive

                                                    Assuming the public school system didn’t crush your soul, learning is a great activity. It expands your viewpoint. It gives you new knowledge you can use to improve your life. It is important for your personal growth. Even if you discount the worldly benefits, the act of learning can be a source of enjoyment.

                                                    “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” — Mark Twain

                                                    But in a busy world, it can often be hard to fit in time to learn anything that isn’t essential. The only things learned are those that need to be. Everything beyond that is considered frivolous. Even those who do appreciate the practice of lifelong learning, can find it difficult to make the effort.

                                                    Here are some tips for installing the habit of continuous learning:

                                                    1. Always Have a Book

                                                    It doesn’t matter if it takes you a year or a week to read a book. Always strive to have a book that you are reading through, and take it with you so you can read it when you have time.

                                                    Just by shaving off a few minutes in-between activities in my day I can read about a book per week. That’s at least fifty each year.

                                                    2. Keep a “To-Learn” List

                                                    We all have to-do lists. These are the tasks we need to accomplish. Try to also have a “to-learn” list. On it you can write ideas for new areas of study.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    Maybe you would like to take up a new language, learn a skill or read the collective works of Shakespeare. Whatever motivates you, write it down.

                                                    3. Get More Intellectual Friends

                                                    Start spending more time with people who think. Not just people who are smart, but people who actually invest much of their time in learning new skills. Their habits will rub off on you.

                                                    Even better, they will probably share some of their knowledge with you.

                                                    4. Guided Thinking

                                                    Albert Einstein once said,

                                                    “Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.”

                                                    Simply studying the wisdom of others isn’t enough, you have to think through ideas yourself. Spend time journaling, meditating or contemplating over ideas you have learned.

                                                    5. Put it Into Practice

                                                    Skill based learning is useless if it isn’t applied. Reading a book on C++ isn’t the same thing as writing a program. Studying painting isn’t the same as picking up a brush.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    If your knowledge can be applied, put it into practice.

                                                    In this information age, we’re all exposed to a lot of information, it’s important to re-learn how to learn so as to put the knowledge into practice.

                                                    6. Teach Others

                                                    You learn what you teach. If you have an outlet of communicating ideas to others, you are more likely to solidify that learning.

                                                    Start a blog, mentor someone or even discuss ideas with a friend.

                                                    7. Clean Your Input

                                                    Some forms of learning are easy to digest, but often lack substance.

                                                    I make a point of regularly cleaning out my feed reader for blogs I subscribe to. Great blogs can be a powerful source of new ideas. But every few months, I realize I’m collecting posts from blogs that I am simply skimming.

                                                    Every few months, purify your input to save time and focus on what counts.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    8. Learn in Groups

                                                    Lifelong learning doesn’t mean condemning yourself to a stack of dusty textbooks. Join organizations that teach skills.

                                                    Workshops and group learning events can make educating yourself a fun, social experience.

                                                    9. Unlearn Assumptions

                                                    You can’t add water to a full cup. I always try to maintain a distance away from any idea. Too many convictions simply mean too few paths for new ideas.

                                                    Actively seek out information that contradicts your worldview.

                                                    Our minds can’t be trusted, but this is what we can do about it to be wiser.

                                                    10. Find Jobs that Encourage Learning

                                                    Pick a career that encourages continual learning. If you are in a job that doesn’t have much intellectual freedom, consider switching to one that does.

                                                    Don’t spend forty hours of your week in a job that doesn’t challenge you.

                                                    Set out to do something you don’t know how. Forced learning in this way can be fun and challenging.

                                                    If you don’t know anything about computers, try building one. If you consider yourself a horrible artist, try a painting.

                                                    12. Follow Your Intuition

                                                    Lifelong learning is like wandering through the wilderness. You can’t be sure what to expect and there isn’t always an end goal in mind.

                                                    Letting your intuition guide you can make self-education more enjoyable. Most of our lives have been broken down to completely logical decisions, that making choices on a whim has been stamped out.

                                                    13. The Morning Fifteen

                                                    Productive people always wake up early. Use the first fifteen minutes of your morning as a period for education.

                                                    If you find yourself too groggy, you might want to wait a short time. Just don’t put it off later in the day where urgent activities will push it out of the way.

                                                    14. Reap the Rewards

                                                    Learn information you can use. Understanding the basics of programming allows me to handle projects that other people would require outside help. Meeting a situation that makes use of your educational efforts can be a source of pride.

                                                    15. Make Learning a Priority

                                                    Few external forces are going to persuade you to learn. The desire has to come from within. Once you decide you want to make lifelong learning a habit, it is up to you to make it a priority in your life.
