Very few people have good posture. We sit in front of our screens worming around for hours on end, but hardly ever sit how we’re “supposed to”. We’ve all seen the pictures of how you’re supposed to sit, with your body at the optimal height so your wrists hit the keyboard at just the right angle and your feet perfectly meet the floor. In real life, that hardly happens, and very few of us have the money to sink into chairs and desks that can accommodate us perfectly.
If you have not heard of Mio Global before, perhaps now is the time for you to sit up and pay attention to what they offer. Mio Global happens to be the manufacturers of the world’s first heart rate monitors that are capable of offering continuous, performance-accurate data without the need for a chest strap, and this time around, they have announced the availability for one to place a pre-order for the Mio FUSE. The Mio FUSE happens to be one unique activity tracker unlike others that we have seen before, since it will boast the functions of a heart rate monitor, sports watch, and all-day activity tracker, rolled into one.
Around the holidays, we know that we’ll be eating more food than some will have in their lifetimes. This brings on all sorts of indigestion and gas issues that your friends, family, and yes, even you have to deal with. Everyone will be clamoring for the bathroom at some point, and sometimes no odor-fighter in the world is enough to keep those smells at bay.
Smart clothes are starting to catch on in this day and age, as the world of biometrics has advanced by leaps and bounds over the years. Having said that, we are edging closer to a future where it is possible for a shirt to be able to keep track of all your essentials whenever you sweat it out, and the Hexoskin biometric smart shirt happens to be one such shirt – allowing users to gain an in-depth insight concerning their physical training, sleep and daily activities. The latest addition would come in the form of the Arctic Smart Shirt, where it is touted to be the first cold weather Biometric Smart Shirt in the whole world. In fact, the Hexoskin shirt comes chock full of the relevant sensors, making it the perfect base layer when it comes to optimum training in cold weather that could prove to be unforgiving.
Cats are independent, stuck up, and neurotic. It makes you wonder how anyone couldn’t love them. They do have a loving side and secretly want to cuddle, but try their hardest to make you think they could care less if you existed. You are after all, their personal butler, chef, and maid. Having a pet is fun and relatively easy if you can keep up with them, but it’s hard to keep a keen eye on every little habit they have.
We sit on our buns for most of the day. While we might get up to stretch every once in a while when our legs feel restless or to go get lunch, we really don’t bother moving much. It’s hard to remind yourself how long you’ve been sitting in the same position, if your posture is correct, and when it’s time to get up for a quick walk around the room.
Let’s have a real talk about ladies and their periods. Women are on their period for the equivalent of 7 years of their lives. You essentially deal with this for a week every month, and while it may seem “gross” to some, it is also the most metal thing ever. Of course, you have to use tampons and pads (and painkillers) to carry on with normal life, but there are many, many annoyances that come with using them. They may have chemicals or fragrances that you don’t want in your system, or make their presence known in unpleasant ways.
