Not everyone has the fortitude to wake up each morning and make an actual breakfast for themselves. The only people who absolutely must on a daily basis are parents, as you can’t really send a little kid to school without giving them some form of nutrition before they spend hours learning. If you actually enjoy breakfast and want to make it a bit more interesting, then why not add a little flair to the morning routine?
Your bathroom is not exactly a clean place. We don’t go in there with the intent of coming out smelling of roses, but we also don’t want any aromas that are born in that room to waft into other parts of the house. While scented sprays and regular cleaning can do a great deal to improve the situation, they won’t immediately tackle anything…fresh.
We’re starting to understand how working with computers can affect our bodies more and more. It’s pretty common knowledge that you should be giving your eyes a break, getting up to stretch, and sitting properly to avoid any muscle or tendon strain. Regardless, we still maintain some pretty bad habits, and it’s hard to break them if we don’t force ourselves to.
While commercials about mornings show us beautiful people drinking a smoothie made of fresh, organic produce, we know that breakfast is hardly so glamorous. We’re lucky to cook an egg to go with our toast that is oftentimes eaten in the car on the way to work. If we’re going to be stuck with a bland breakfast, it doesn’t mean we can’t find ways to spruce up the morning.
Being a parent is a combination of keeping a child and yourself alive while pretending you don’t need much sleep. That being said, if you are lucky enough to get your child to sleep through the night, you have to be quiet as a mouse to keep them that way. Of course, stepping on a LEGO while trying to get to the bathroom at 2am will need to either be prevented entirely or emit a non-existent sound from you to keep said angel babies asleep.
We live in a day and age where work is becoming more and more important, and our social lives are starting to suffer. It’s not that we don’t want to go out with friends, but if we want to keep our heads above water and move on to a job we don’t hate, we have to work harder than ever. That being said, it can get pretty lonely when you’re working, keeping up with a home, and trying to make sure your body isn’t falling apart.
Once you’ve been on a fancy high-tech toilet, nothing in your life ever feels the same again. If you spend three nights in a hotel room with a toilet that has heated seats, bidet, and butt dryer, you will notice how unexciting a toilet-related experience is anywhere else. It also helps you to feel cleaner after a rousing round of checking social media long after the last drop.
There are some products I come across which make me question where humanity is headed. We already have convenience at our fingertips, and the sky is the limit with what we can do. Of course, making so many things easy to use and access breeds a special type of laziness. It’s not that we mean to, but it’s so simple to start taking the conveniences of every day life for granted.
When you’re looking at apartments, you want to make sure you get a place that has air conditioning. You think you can handle it with fans and wearing shorts, but there will come a breaking point, and it will be sweaty and disgusting. Window air conditioners are an option, but they’re not fun to install, decimate your ability to see out the window, and are louder than that uncle that always gets smashed at Christmas.
Do you have blinds, and keep forgetting to invest in blackout curtains so you don’t have to deal with any light in the morning? If this is you, then you have probably dealt with that delightful wakeup call of the sun rising through open blinds that you forgot to close the night before. If you know that you’re notorious for leaving the blinds open, it might be time to take action to fix it. Or you can get a robot to do it for you, either one.
