Life Skills: You're Probably Doing These 13 Things Wrong

November 17, 2015 3 min read

As we reach adulthood, we're pretty positive we've got the basics of life down. But, have you ever thought, "I wish there was a better way of doing this"? Well, there just might be. From how you dry your hands to how you beatbox, prepare to be amazed by these 13 truths.
You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

1. Drying off your hands

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

You don't need more than one paper towel to get the job done. Grab one, fold in half length-wise and voila. The double layers allow the water to go between the two layers instead of back onto your hands.

2. Pooping

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

While Westerners laugh at the idea of people in other parts of there country squatting into toilets, apparently it's the right way to do it, and according to many studies, our method is actually bad for the bowels. Try using a step stool to get this crouched shape.

3. Adjusting your car's rear-view mirrors

Typically, you adjust your side mirrors to show just a little bit of your car, but this is wrong. Turn your mirrors until your car JUST disappears from your view.

4. Peeling potatoes

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

Say goodbye to your potato peeler. All you have to do is boil them first, then put into super cold water for five seconds. The skins will slide right off, leaving you amazed ... and with all this free time!

5. Cracking eggs

When you crack eggs on the side of the bowl you allow for the shell to enter your soon to be scramble. Make sure to crack them on the counter or cutting board, and then use both of your hands to pull the sides apart.

6. Flushing

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

Unless you like the thought of particles and germs from your poop flying up onto your body and your surroundings (hello contaminated toothbrush), close the lid before you pull the handle.

7. Eating pizza

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

Hate when you put a piece of pizza to your mouth only to have half of the hot stuff fall off and burn your skin and end up on the floor? All you need to do is fold the pizza just enough to create a U shape.

8. Opening up stubborn plastic packaging

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

While scissors initially seem like a good solution, blister packages are stubborn and just leave you sweating with frustration. All you need to do is use a can opener.

9. Pouring liquid from a carton

That messy splash that seems inevitable when pouring from a carton can actually be avoided. All you have to do is turn the carton upside down and hold the flap down. Enjoy your smooth pour!

10. Unloading soda cans into the fridge

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

Sick of putting each soda (or beer) into the fridge one by one? You can avoid this by opening both sides, putting the box inside, and using your hand to push the cans to the back until they form into a nice, neat stack sans box in the fridge.

11. Holding a burger in your hands

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

Your pinkies are the secret weapon to ensuring none of your innards fall out. Even scientists concur that this is the best method!

12. Drying your cups and bowls

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

Putting your dishes upside down allows the water to exit the inside of the glass, but where can it go? Nowhere. The result can be an unpleasant mildewy smell. All you have to do is put cups and bowls face up. For wine glasses, lay on their sides.

13. Beatboxing

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.

Don't try to trick your mouth into becoming an instrument. Use certain words and phrases repetitively to get the job done.“Baboons and Pigs” and “Bouncing Cats” are great options.

You've probably been doing these life skills wrong.
Had you been doing any of the above wrong this entire time?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
