    29 Things People Try To Warn Others About But They Don’t Listen

    People say that if there’s no risk, there’s no reward. That may be true, but there’s also a limit to that thought. There are aspects of our lives where we take more risks than we should that can be blindspots for us. When one Reddit user asked others to share which warnings they think people don’t take seriously enough, the responses became an excellent list of tips for what might not be worth risking in life.

    The responses seem to have drawn on a vast variety of different life experiences and come from different fields. We think that just about anyone will find some wisdom on this list that would be worth taking into consideration in their own lives.

    Letting the culture war distract you. The purpose of the culture war is to be a distraction. We don’t need to worry about pronouns and drag queens. We need to worry about the extremely rich taking advantage of us all.

Your judgment, self control, and emotional continence will fail with astonishing regularity. You’ll develop cognitive decline in your 50s or 60s that shouldn’t happen south of 80 or 90. It will destroy your quality of life.

    Alcohol use, though mentioned on this list, is worth expanding upon. Some studies suggest that very moderate alcohol consumption can be beneficial, but many people use a bit too much.

    Depending on the quality of care where you are, healthcare-associated infections can be a serious risk. There isn’t much that most patients can do to avoid this risk when in the care of medical professionals, but when relevant, be sure to carefully follow all hygiene and care instructions to avoid catching serious preventable illnesses.

    29 Things People Try To Warn Others About But They Don't Listen I’ve spent the last year teaching at various schools in the LA area, grades 3 up to seniors in high school. I can not emphasize enough the effect of cell phone use on young people. Many of the high schools I go to don’t even make a legitimate effort to make students put their phones down. There were theater games I’d play with seniors in high school where I would have to explain the simple rules so many times that we’d barely ever accomplish getting through the game. The 3rd graders would get it immediately and play for half an hour. Every single time I’d give the high school kids a simple direction they would look at me for a second and then say “Wait…what?” It was alarming.

    29 Things People Try To Warn Others About But They Don't Listen propaganda/advertising really bother me

    I read something recently about an area of research called “consumer neuroscience” which is basically the term they are using for a collection of research and imaging to figure out how best to exploit your psychology to make it more effective to own your attention. Research into psychology should benefit people, not the interests of whoever-the-f**k, but that’s where the money is

    The reason it bothers me is because manipulating and controlling people is morally wrong, this is obvious in relationships but not from outside. The reason nobody cares is because either they assume it is harmless or they think I am crazy for caring about something that seems so innocuous on the surface

    Having mentioned alcohol twice in this article, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention tobacco use as well. Fortunately, general trends suggest that more and more of us are becoming aware of the risks. In the US, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports: “Current smoking has declined from 20.9% (nearly 21 of every 100 adults) in 2005 to 11.5% (nearly 12 of every 100 adults) in 2021.”

According to American Addiction Centers, “Drug abuse and addiction cost American society more than $740 billion annually in lost workplace productivity, healthcare expenses, and crime-related costs.”

    29 Things People Try To Warn Others About But They Don't Listen Always use fans on your plants when you are growing them indoors!
    Especially seedlings.
    Plants hate still, stagnant air. They are able to transpire moisture more effectively when the air is moving.
    A strong breeze will also keep your seedlings from dying due to damping off.
    It also strengthens the stems so that they don’t just fall over when you move them.

    We all know we’re supposed to brush our teeth, but a proper dental hygiene habit goes beyond this basic step. Oral health is a significant issue for many and causes  both pain and suffering and unwelcome expenses! As the World Health Organization reminds us, “Most oral health conditions are largely preventable and can be treated in their early stages.” Make sure to floss and rinse!

    29 Things People Try To Warn Others About But They Don't Listen Recycling. I know many people who are proud of the fact that they litter, despite being college educated. They do not care about the effects this has upon our environment or the animals that suffer from human carelessness. I find it to be a mob mentality; “everyone else litters so why should I change?”

    29 Things People Try To Warn Others About But They Don't Listen Having enough insurance for your home and belongings. Your stuff is probably worth way more than you think, once you start adding it up, and a total loss event will flip your entire life on its end, and if there’s not enough insurance money, it can be impossible to come back from.

    We had a total loss wildfire, and were dramatically underinsured. We’re only able to rebuild because a family member could rewrite their will and give us an early inheritance and that, added to our insurance settlement, was just enough to build half the house we had before. Our home will be furnished almost exclusively with things we bought at thrift stores and estate sales, because we don’t have the money to rebuy all that we had.

    29 Things People Try To Warn Others About But They Don't Listen Workplace Safety and proper claim filing for injuries. Too many times I see workers getting hurt due to haphazard working environments, then not filing because they are ingratiated to their superiors and don’t want to rock the boat (their excuse). I put safety first people, your job won’t care if you lose a limb or a life, they just write it off and keep going. At most you or your family gets a settlement. At the least you may get a plaque or written warning or termination notice, you know just a piece of paper to cement how much they care for you not going after them or for you not being safe.
