Not every job is reliant on typing and staring at a computer for hours on end. It’s strange, I know. For those of you out there working with fabrics on a regular basis, ironing and steaming are a common occurrence. It would make sense that you would have both an iron and a garment steamer, but for those who like to save space, combining the two would be an ideal setup as it would also save you the trouble of going from one device to another.
We don’t need to invest in precautionary measures, but it’s never a bad idea. Doing so normally results in making sure potentially big problems only have a chance to be little ones that are easy to manage. The more preventative measures you take, the more smoothly your day-to-day operations will remain for a longer period of time. This can be big things like changing your oil early and stocking up on toiletries to putting a drain catcher in place to prevent obstructions.
Your parents can scream at you until they’re blue in the face, but it’s not going to make you have better posture. Unless you actively want to change something, you’re not going to, which is why we carry a lot of bad habits into adulthood. Eventually we realize that the things our parents told us to do were for our benefit, and have to begrudgingly change our ways after the fact.
We love our gadgets and gizmos, but we can’t use them without charging up the battery every now and again. Since a full charge only lasts for a few hours, we’re normally stuck carrying a bunch of cables around. This on its own is no issue, but when they unravel and have a party in your bag, it’s hard to get what you need when you actually need it.
If you’ve ever visited Japan, you’ll notice lots of laundry hanging outside of apartment buildings. It’s not that anyone is trying to show off their clothes, more that having a washer and dryer in your home doesn’t happen normally. For those that live there, this is a bit of a pain when it’s humid outside or raining, as you are only adding to the moisture in the air by hanging your clothes up to dry inside.
If you are always running short on time, then house chores are the least of your worries. Things that pertain to money and our health usually have to come first, but having a clean house can factor in to good mental health. Sitting pretty on a pile of money and no personal time can afford you many things, and a clean house could be one of them.
When you live in a hot and dry area, it can be hard to feel hydrated even when you’re drinking enough water! The sun is sometimes hot enough to cook an egg on the pavement, and getting into a car that had the windows rolled up without a reflector is like voluntarily climbing into an oven. Additionally, anything that has been sitting in the car will give off an odor, whether that means snacks, gym clothes, or anything the dog might’ve left behind.
Eating is supposed to be fun, and there is a mantra going around that says “You are what you eat.” Many of us would love to be healthy, but how many of us are willing to go the extra mile in making sure that we will end up as healthy — such as exercise and eating right. How about throwing in some salads into your daily diet? Chowbotics have come up with something unique — Sally the Salad Robot, as it boasts of innovative technology that delivers fresh, healthy and hygienic food in a fun manner.
Light therapy is all over the place in beauty parlors and salons since it can help with smile lines, tighten up your skin, grow hair, reduce inflammation and much more. Normally this sort of treatment is something you would find in a salon that comes with a hefty price attached for a one-time use by a professional. Once you understand how it works though (full comprehension, not just a basic understanding), there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to buy and install a system for yourself.
Dealing with people is usually the last thing anyone wants to do. While some humans are awesome, going out in public with a whole mess of them on a train, plane, or bus is sometimes overwhelming in a bad way. We use music and social media to tune them out, but that doesn’t completely remove the potential for eye contact, or worse…conversation.
