It's amazing how one change to your lifestyle can improve your daily life.

Be it starting your day with yoga, eliminating foods that don't agree with you, or simply seeing your friends more often, something we're all eager to do after months of quarantine, it's amazing how one little change can make waking up and getting through your day more bearable.

Perhaps the only frustration that comes with this change, is that you only wished you'd started doing it sooner.

Redditor kxrllkxrll was curious to hear what hobbies, rituals or lifestyle choices people wished they'd gotten a head start on, leading them to ask:

"What improved your life so much, you wished you did sooner?"


There is always fun to be had!

"I stopped living my life just waiting for the weekend."

"When you work 5 days a week and have just 2 off, it's not good to be always waiting for those 2 days."

"You can plan something meaningful or fun every day, even if it's just a small thing."- cake_or_cookies

Listening to your dentist can pay off.

"Flossing."

"Actually, I use a water pick now."

"Now my hygiene and cleaning visits are a breeze, and I haven't had a cavity in years!"- perrydolia

A change of scene was just the ticket.

"Just packed up and moved thousands of miles away."

"Left everything behind and just started over."

"Besides some debt, a suit case, and contacts for only the non-toxic people in my life, it's been an extremely liberating experience."

"And looking back, nothing was really preventing me from doing it sooner, no real reasons at least."

"I just kept coming up with excuses not to do it until one day I couldn't think of one."- SpicyRiceAndTuna

No more language barriers!

"Learned Spanish."

"Now I have a lot of amazing latino friends and I got a lot of great gigs and opportunities because of it."- kellytai1478

Can't beat the commute

"Not everyone can afford this, but moving closer to work."

"My commute went from 45 miserable minutes in traffic glaring in hatred at the tail lights in front of me to a pleasant 15 minute bike ride."

"I got an hour of free time every day and better health."- munificent

When in doubt, check with your doctor

"Got a proper diagnosis."

"I think a lot of people that for years questioned themselves 'what’s wrong with me?' when they finally got diagnosed it’s a big relief and changes a lot in a better way."- popcornostar

There's no expiration date on education

"Bachelor degree at 47 years old."

"Master degree at 50 years old."

"Doubled my salary in 4 years, from just getting by to on track for retiring at 60."- scientistzero

Get your body moving!

"Exercise every day."

"Anxiety and depression are much easier to manage, and I got some confidence I haven't had in years."- darodardar_Inc

"Low impact cardio."

"F*ck, I loved to run, but it destroyed my legs."

"I can swim my little heart out."- Hyperion0000

Stop and enjoy the beauty of the world once and a while

"When I was told that I would lose my eyesight it made me pay more attention to how beautiful the sky was."

"I can still see and I enjoy watching the clouds on a level I can't even explain."- DaniB3

It's hard not to stop and wonder if our lives would have been even better had we made these changes earlier.

But no point in stopping and looking back, when you can just appreciate how great your life is now.


People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

Let's hope we never have to find out.

People on death row get that option.

Do they deserve it?

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
