3 Common Sense Things People Should Know

One would think that certain things should go without saying. For example, knowing not to shove a fork in a hot toaster is hopefully somewhat universal. However, even the most "obvious" stuff can get lost in the daily shuffle. So today, we want to reclaim a bit of that good ol' common sense and remember some simple things that can make a big difference:

  1. Sleep and Eat Your Way to Sanity: It may be a surprise to learn that energy slumps and constant grumpiness are often not traits of our personality, but rather due to potential sleep deficit and nutritional rebellion. Prioritize getting a good night’s rest rather than endless hours of scrolling through social media. Fuel your body with real food, not just caffeine, sugar, and “food-like” substances found in the snack aisle. You'll be amazed how a full night's sleep and a proper meal can turn your frown upside down (and maybe even make you less likely to shove that fork in the toaster).
  2. Master the Adulting Basics: Don't let burnt toast and maxed-out credit cards define you! Learn to cook at least a few healthy dishes. You don’t need to try and become the next Top Chef, but you can start small with a simple dish like pesto and pasta. Next, get those finances in order by budgeting like a pro. Even a small budget can work wonders with planning. Then figure out some basic car maintenance tasks, like changing a tire or checking the oil. These skills aren't just practical; they're empowering. You’ll become the ruler of the castle, not someone in distress waiting for a knight in shining tow truck.
  3. The Magic of "Thank You": It's not actual magic, but it's pretty darn close. A simple and honest "thank you" can unlock doors you didn't know existed. Gratitude shows appreciation, builds bridges, and makes the world a little brighter. And it's not just about manners; it's about recognizing the invisible threads that connect us. Saying "thank you" to the barista, the bus driver, your mom – it reminds everyone that we're all in this together, and that kindness is contagious.

So, let's dust off our common sense.. Prioritize the basics, embrace adulting (no matter how old you are), and sprinkle some "thank you" magic around. You might be surprised at how much it transforms your own life and the lives of those around you. Because sometimes, the most extraordinary things can come from the simplest reminders.
