Hopefully, you’re getting out there and living life, creating memories and enjoying memorable experiences. If you’re doing it right, you might even learn something along the way, about yourself, human nature, how the world works, or some hidden, heretofore unknown truth. But alas, sometimes those life lessons come far too late to act on, because, as they hindsight is 20.20. So what good is life lessons if you learn them too late? Well, you can pass them on to others, as these people on an Ask Reddit thread did, and hope that they (meaning we) heed their wise words.

Exercise. It’s way easier to stop the fat from piling on, rather than trying to lose it.
