Want To Travel? Don’t Forget To Download These Apps!

Want To Travel? Don’t Forget To Download These Apps!

It’s been less than a decade since smartphones became a really massive phenomenon, and in this short time span they managed to completely change the way we do many things, travelling among them. Myriads of diverse apps exist for the sole purpose of making your trip easier, cheaper, more interesting and relaxed. So let’s take a look at some apps you certainly should download if you are going abroad.

1. Converter Plus

If you often visit foreign countries, you are probably used to encountering different currencies and units of measurement. And while currency converters are quite a usual thing, people often don’t realize that difficulties with grasping another measurement system may be equally if not more frustrating than not getting how much something costs in money you are used to. After you’ve been using feet and pounds all your life, it is very hard to understand what meters and kilos mean on intuitive level, and let’s not even start talking about differences between Celsius and Fahrenheit. Converter Plus is a handy app that does all converting you need in a matter of seconds.

2. Filterra

We all know that nothing helps remembering all the best and most exciting moments of your trip than photos you take at the spot. And if you want to make awesome photos, you need a photo editor, preferably one that will enable you to edit pictures on the go, apply different filters, use pro-level tools to improve quality and correct little details. This way you won’t have to wait until you get home to prepare the photos and share them with all your friends – and Filterra fits the bill perfectly. You can download it from the official website or visit the photo editor’s App Store page.

    3. WeatherPro

    This powerful app provides weather reports for more than two million locations, including all the minute details: atmospheric pressure, cloud formations, humidity level, wind speed and direction and so on. In other words, if you like to know for sure what kind of weather to expect when you get off the plane, you need WeatherPro.

    4. Booking.com

    Booking.com is a well-known booking and travel search site in and of itself, but its mobile apps (available for Android and iOS) further increase its usefulness. They may help you find unexpected discounts or special promotions and, on a more prosaic note, simply helps you book everything from hotels to car rentals and look for something to do when you arrive at your destination.

    5. Packing Pro

    Ask any person, and he will probably admit to having at least once left something essential for the trip back home and discovering it only when there was no longer any way to get back for it. Packing Pro solves this problem – just tell it where you are going, for how long and with whom, and it will immediately provide you with a suggestion of what you should take along, dividing the list into categories so that it is easier to navigate.

    6. Google Field Trip

    If you have trouble finding places to visit, Google Field Trip may help you. It looks for places of interest around your current locations based on the preferences you select beforehand, and alerts you when you are near something that may pique your curiosity – either by displaying cards on your smartphone or audio signals.

      10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

      10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

      Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

      Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

      So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

      Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

      Video Summary

      1. It is easier.

      When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

      2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

      Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

      3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

      Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

      4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

        If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

        5. It could lead to better sleep.

        Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

        6. It can help your skin.

        For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

        7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

        Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

        8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

        Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

        9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

        For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

        10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

          Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

          Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

          Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

          Sleep well with your naked body!

          With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

          Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
