In recent weeks, you've likely come across a lot of lifehacks that purport that we've been doing certain things wrong all along. And of course, these tend to be embarrassingly basic things that we've been supposedly messing up without realizing it.
And sure, I have to admit that some of them do actually live up to that description. If there's a really simple way to make opening cans easier or to use a lighter without burning your thumb, who's going to turn it down?
But sometimes these lifehacks aren't so simple and they don't always produce results that we actually like.
That's not to say that it's impossible for me to understand why someone would want to follow them, but they're a little overhyped if they're supposed to be the "right" way to do things.
