We have all dealt with driving drowsy. It’s not safe, or a good idea, but sometimes you only have so much time to get from point A to B, and sleep has to go by the wayside. While it sort of goes without saying, this is super dangerous, especially if you don’t have someone else in the car with you to talk to you and keep you awake. It only takes a second to get in a serious accident or drive off the road, so if you’re driving a lot you’ll want to have some sort of precaution in place.
There are some people who actually enjoy working out. It’s normally those kids who grew up playing sports and never thought that being outside is as much of a chore as it is to everyone else. Then again, once you start getting healthy, it is pretty fun to go on a run or take a scenic bike ride. It can be a nice way to take a break from staring at screens and working every second you breathe.
When you live in a more populated area and work very long days, the hustle and bustle of everything going on around you will sometimes be more than you can handle. Honking cars, bikes, chatter, music, lights, TV, your phone buzzing constantly with conversations and email can all get to be a bit too much. If you’re living in an apartment with paper thin walls, this is amplified by 20.
When you’re traveling, you don’t really remember the helpful people unless they go far out of their way to help you. What sticks out the most are the people who act like human versions of hearing nails on chalkboard. More often than not, we also get stuck sitting next to those people on the plane, and since everything in coach relies on unspoken rules, you better hope you get to your seat first or you’re not going to have an armrest to use.
If you’ve been bitten by the Pokemon Go bug, then you know how easy it is to lose hours of your life going on a healthy walk with friends to try and catch ’em all. Of course, the problem with that app is that it drains your phone’s battery at around a percent a minute. If you haven’t already, it’s pretty much mandatory that you get yourself a backup battery tout suite.
We’re pretty spoiled when it comes to making our environment how we want it. Smart homes are amplifying this as thermostats like Nest won’t just cool you down, but will remember precisely the temperature you want to be at, and when. Being holed up in a place other than home for a week or more makes you wish you could have that level of comfort wherever you go.
When you’re traveling in a professional capacity, you have to look like you just walked off of a magazine cover. First impressions and how you maintain your presence are of utmost importance, and even though surface level looks shouldn’t factor into the business side of things, they most certainly do. Not having a pressed shirt might translate to potential business partners that you lack discipline and attention to detail.
If you have to travel a lot, then you know hard it can be hop from one plane to another. Those who want to sleep on the plane or get a reasonable amount of leg room have to pay extra, and to get that for every flight will add up fast. If all you want is a bit of shuteye, then you might be looking into a neck pillow, but even those can get uncomfortable pretty quickly.
