Once you add riding a bike to your daily routine, you start to realize what accessories you would benefit from. If you live out in the country with limited street lighting, then adding visibility will be your priority. If you’re in a bigger city, visibility will be equally important, but navigating your way through hoards of pedestrians will be another aspect to worry about.
When you have to walk a mile or two to get to class, a backpack with a few books in it becomes a heavy burden that digs into your shoulders after the first few minutes of your journey. When the summer sun is in full effect, you also get to experience the joys of a tremendous amount of back sweat, making your bag a soggy mess the rest of the day. You can only cut down so many layers of clothing to cool off before you might be charged with indecent exposure.
Dogs are slobbery balls of energy that are in a constant state of motion when they’re not being adorable on the couch or patiently begging for food. Sometimes though, they start being cute on the couch more than they should and pack on weight. We’re all prone to weight gain, but when it comes to your dog, it’s your responsibility to do something about it so they don’t develop health issues. It’s the same as having a kid who always wants to eat Cheetos and play video games, and making sure they don’t do that.
It’s only when you’ve been working the same job for a couple months that you start to realize what aspects you could improve on. Foot rests for under your desk and a wrist support at an office, a rechargeable thermos for those that work in tough conditions, and bike accessories for those with a commute. There’s an app or product for just about anything you can think of.
When it’s bitingly cold outside, you want to wear as many layers as possible to keep warm. The problem therein lies with having to find space to store your multitude of extra clothing when you’re at work or a gathering. We don’t always have the convenience of being able to stash our stuff away, which makes us want to wear less, but also not chance getting a cold from exposure to the freezing temperatures.
The more we learn about our own bodies, the more interesting our technology becomes. We still don’t know everything there is to know about the brain and the nervous system, but there’s plenty that we do have a pretty firm grasp of understanding on. Bone conduction has been a rising market for some time now, with headsets, earpieces, and even advertisements being played through glass on trains.
When you have to go the entire day with everything you need on your person, you know how important having a good bag is. Whether it’s a messenger bag with shoulder padding, a backpack with comfortable straps, or a purse that won’t cut into your shoulder, you’re going to use it enough to know quality when you wear it. The only problem with backpacks is that they’re meant to hold a lot, so we put a lot in them, weighing us down.
