Android TV: Is It Worth It?

Android TV: Is It Worth It?

The big technology to look at these days is the many different kinds of TV streaming services available to you, and it can be tough to figure out which one is the best. Android TV is a popular form of getting more channels and entertainment options in your home, and there’s plenty of reasons why. I’m going to talk about what Android TV offers, as well as why you should consider making use of it. Personally, I have it in my home – I couldn’t be happier with the sheer amount of options I have when it comes to watching TV. It’s not for everybody, though! That’s why I felt it was necessary to write this piece.

What Is It?

If you have an Android phone, picture a cable box that is running on the exact same operating system. Android does a great job of providing the user with stellar performance, but that’s not all a potential consumer is looking at; the selection of movies and shows is important as well. Android TV was introduced to the world in 2014, allowing you to interact with your television in a way you never thought possible. It can be built into TV’s, but there’s also an external box format that many people use as well. An Android TV box allows you to implement the Google Play Store to download apps and other services (like Netflix or Hulu) – it even goes as far as allowing you to download games on your television.

Voice search is also implemented, allowing you to look up any sort of video you’d like without raising a finger. This is perfect for not only people who are disabled, but it’s also ideal for those that are just plain lazy (and there’s nothing wrong with that). If you love Netflix and wouldn’t mind having it seamlessly implemented into your television routine, Android TV is the best device to be using.

Is It Expensive?

This is the best part: as compared to many other cable/FiOS providers, it’s relatively cheap. Expenses can build up when you’re using a satellite or cable provider, especially when it comes to watching pay-per-views and shows of that nature. With Android TV, you can pretty much stream with ease from your phone; whether it’s YouTube or the internet, you’ll be able to watch whatever you like. When you take into account that there are so many different apps and other services to use alongside Android TV (and in many cases, free of charge), it’s a deal and a half!

I haven’t had a large cable bill to complain about in months, and I have Android TV to thank for that. If financial stability is something you’re keen on, as it should be for just about all of us, Android TV can cut your current entertainment bill right in half. I mean, that’s not a promise; but it could happen!

Joining the Movement

A lot of people have an Android TV box these days so that just goes to show how convenient it can be for everyday use. Why would so many people use it in their homes if the entertainment value wasn’t there? I was skeptical at first, much like you might be; but after using it for myself, I realized the potential was there. Ever since then, I’ve been using Android TV seamlessly. It seems like regardless of what I want to watch, I can do exactly that with this nifty little invention. Joining the movement could very well be the best thing you’ve ever done!

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!
