We’re all starting to be curious about how much activity, food, and water we take in. That’s why there’s a craze of activity trackers, health apps, and smart devices that help us know exactly what’s going into and being exhausted from our bodies. One of the more important things to keep track of is how much water we’re taking in.
Traveling for work can be fun from time to time, but the downside is that you’re always stuck on your laptop. It’s just not the same as the home setup where you have your overpowered PC, two or more monitors, and a mouse and keyboard that are comfortable to use for more than a few hours. While you can’t bring all the comforts of home with you, that doesn’t mean you can’t at least have an extra monitor or two on the road.
When you’re by yourself at night with no light to keep you company, things can get pretty scary pretty fast. Every sound and rustle of the leaves could lead to your demise, and you would never even see it coming. While a flashlight or just having enough battery in your phone can keep you going, they’re only going to last you so long.
When you’re traveling a lot, but work or game on your computer, it’s hard to adjust from your full home setup to a dinky laptop. Of course, there are ways to make your traveling workstation much more useful and homey, but it will cost some money. If you already have a desk situation, as most hotels provide something for traveling business people, then you’re only going to need to worry about the equipment you bring with you, as you don’t want to over-encumber yourself, but also want to have enough of your stuff with you.
When you try to be more conscious of your health and the environment, biking or walking to work can be ways to directly contribute to both. Not only are you getting in some exercise, but you’re not using gas which adds to pollution. Of course, if it’s a rainy day, you’re not going to be as apt to deal with the chance of getting wet.
Sometimes we buy things purely because of their function. Most often though, we sink money into something cute just because it’s cute, despite the fact that it doesn’t serve any other purpose. When you can find an equal balance of being adorable and useful, then that’s all the better, making it easier to justify parting with money.
When you hardly have any time to breathe or think about something that’s not work-related, you very likely live on caffeine. The way in which we take our fix varies from person to person. Whether it’s coffee or tea, there’s a specific way we like it, and when we’re not at home we normally just have to make due with whatever is nearby.
How many of you are carrying around a wallet that is older than dirt, filled with too many useless pieces of paper that aren’t money, and looks like it’s about dissipate into the wind? Chances are, you need to prioritize what you’re carrying around with you, clean out the trash, and then get a new wallet. If you’d like to go the minimalist but most useful route, then getting something that is small yet efficient will be the way you want to go.
Hailing from an area where there are more cows and cornfields than people, I have seen duct tape used in a variety of ways. While keeping the front bumper of your car on and fixing pipes with the silver sticky magic paper may seem uncouth to some, let me tell you that the stuff is going to outlast most of mankind. It does come with a connotation of being for rednecks that is generally unfavorable, but it is and has been a lifesaver countless times.
