4 Gadgets or Equipment you must have in your home or office

There are people who use to keep almost everything they need in their home. I am sure you must have known some family members or friends who have a full kit of small screws, car jacks, spare wheels and other different stores and spares.

If you want to have a handy box of all the tools and the equipment required in day to day life, here are some unusual ideas for you:

1. Inversion Table

Ever heard what an inversion table is? Well, inversion therapy is a new buzz word in the town wherein you basically are upside down or remain at an inverted angle with your legs hanging up in the air.

Inversion therapy is considered essential for spinal decomposition and is recommended to people who normally sit for longer hours. It is considered as one of the best therapies to rest your spine and relieve any back pain and improves posture.

So to do this you need an inversion table. Before you find your best inversion table, make sure you consult your doctor first. If you want to simply buy it for the general purpose of fitness, it is important to find the one which fits your height and other requirements.

2. Jump Starter

Most of us have cars – rather old cars as few of us can’t really afford to have new models every year unless we are good on credit and can get auto loans every year. With winter in full swing, batteries of the car often become the serious issue to deal with. Just imagine a scenario when you are already getting late for your work and your car refuses to start – due to a bad or died out the battery.

To avoid such episodes and to at least take your car to the mechanic, you may need jump starters. A Jump Starter is more than just a pack of batteries and can come in handy when needed. Jump starters come in two types i.e. jump boxes and plug in units. Whatever your requirements, make sure you have one in your stock just to avoid delays and trouble.

3. Smart Garage door opener

Do you find it irritating to go and find the garage door opener especially at night time? Dark streets at night make it even worse for you to open your garage door easily. Well, if you are facing such a situation then it can be solved just by installing a smart garage door opener at your garage door.

Chamberlain Comfort Door Opener is considered as an industry standard with its advanced models allowing you to open your garage door with a smartphone.

4. Solar Powered Smartphone chargers

If you or your family is planning to spend a weekend out, you will certainly require a mobile charger. Not having one can be a pain point if you are on a day trip and your battery is drained due to taking a lot of selfies and videos. In such a scenario, you may require a solar powered smartphone charger which can make life lot easier for you.

A good solar powered mobile phone charger can easily charge 2 phones at once and since it also continues to be charged on its own, it will never let you down provided you are ready to invest in a good quality solar powered mobile charger.

Every home requires various gadgets and equipment to make it easier for everyone to manage home easily. If you are someone who likes to automate things and wants to avoid embarrassment when the actual needs arrive, you may consider using any of the above-mentioned gadgets. Your choice can be different but make sure you have them handy when you need them the most.

How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

Review Your Past Flow

Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
