10 Important Truths Every Twenty Something Should Realize

10 Important Truths Every Twenty Something Should Realize

Your twenties are a time rich with experimentation. The transition from dependence to independence can feel like a roller coaster ride. Surely you’ll encounter some bumps over these ten years, so here are six helpful truths to keep in mind during your twenties. We have some obnoxious notions when we are going through that age but it becomes more and more irrelevant when we start becoming mature and realize that there are certain universal facts that needs to be grabbed.

Out of the myriad ‘Grand Pa’ suggestions, here are ten primary and important truths that every 20 something should realize, in order to pour the precious idealization of life.

1. You Can’t Please Everyone

Don’t get stuck in a ritual of validating other peoples’ egos. You cannot possibly please everyone around you. In fact, if you attempt to please each and every person you know, eventually you’ll lose sight of your own needs.

2. Don’t Be Too Materialistic

Do not forget that life is much more than possessions. At times, make an effort to reconnect with your friends, spend time with family, stay home and take care of your pets. Basically, spend most of your effort on making memories.

3. Focus On Building Wealth of Experience

You need money to survive, obviously. But also focus more on acquiring knowledge and become intellectually rich. Learn as much as you can. Read books, articles, magazines, meet people and establish your network.

4. Keep In Touch With Old Friends

In your twenties you will meet many temporary people who will come in and out of your life. Don’t forget about the real friends and family who stick by you. Make it a point to stay in touch with them. If they feel like you’ve taken their friendships for granted, eventually they might not bother keeping up the relationship.

5. Failures Are Okay

The ball won’t always be in your court. It is okay if your grades aren’t always perfect. What’s important is that you keep trying.

6. Your Parents Care

At times it may feel that your parents are pulling you back, or keeping you from tasting freedom. Remember, they care for you deeply, and perhaps 20 years from now you will show the same care to your own kids.

7. Solitude is Indeed Essential

It’s really not that bad when you go out alone for a walk, watch a movie alone or even go for a trip without any company. I should emphasize it’s more matured when you have such experiences as it shows you the ‘Real You’

8. Technology isn’t everything

Well, we are living in an era of mobiles, tablets and laptops where every single thing is digital and our brain follows the instructions of the machines directly or indirectly but we should always remember that it was invented just as the catalyst and not for the whole human evolution process.

9. Sleep Deprivation is Bad

While we grow up, we tend to put our efforts on our career and forget to do the very natural things. Sleep Deprivation is one of the bad things millenials fetch from the bad world’s new trendy work culture but you should always maintain the work-life balance; sleep is an important asset of life, you must know.

10. Dreaming Big can be Dangerous (Figuratively)

Yes, we wanted to be ‘Batman’ when we were 10 but then, we know it’s not real and we should be something more real. Dreaming to own ‘Microsoft’ ain’t going to make you successful but pity.

Your twenties are a thrilling time to let loose while also developing your personality and career. Try to keep a healthy perspective, and you’ll be left with amazing memories for the rest of your life. Good luck with your journey.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
