“Life hack” is a relatively new term that has been circling around social media since 2004. It refers to any trick, shortcut, or novel way that makes life easier. The term itself came out of the computer industry where “hacking” often referred to a shortcut of some sort.
Essentially a “life hack” is an idea. Someone came up with a way to do something more easily or solve an everyday problem with an idea. All of us at some point have used a life hack in our car, or home, or even at work.
The cool thing now is with the internet people are sharing their life hacks so that there are now websites, Pinterest pages, Twitter accounts, etc. that are dedicated to collecting and distributing ingenious life hacks to the world. Here are a few links to such sites:
