5 Things To Do Now While You Are Younger

5 Things To Do Now While You Are Younger

Since it is a new year, we have all probably realized that whatever we have done and decided on in the past year are things that we can never get back. It is the nature of time – it is fast and fleeting. And since it is a new year, we will gain another year in this thing called life. We will keep having New Years and before we know it, our years and our age will keep adding up. Here are tips on how to make the most of each year that passes you by:

1. Don’t dwell on situations

Everyday is a chance for a change. Whether you like that change or not, it is something that we may or may not be able to control. If you can’t control it and if it is not a good change, make sure that you do not dwell on it. Instead, be the type of person that can adapt to change. As Charles Darwin had said: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”

2. Don’t say no to opportunities

Remember that concert that you did not end up going to because you chose to stay inside the house? Well, that artist might never go back to your town, or the artist might not have enough hits in the future for you to see or watch their concert.

If you get the chance to work in another country for a year or a chance to make a change in your life for the better, do it. Opportunities that go by might not come back again.

3. Try new things

You only live once, and if you do not try out new things in this lifetime, when will you? Get to experience what that raw salmon dish really tastes like, or why a particular dish is a hit in India. Do try doing something that you think is beyond your comfort zone. Be bold and adventurous.

4. Learn to let go

Not everyone that we meet or that come into our lives are meant to stay for long periods in our lives. People come and go. So if you find people that cherish you, make sure that you treasure the moments that you have with them. And make plans together to add to your memory banks.

Also, people do change. If you find that someone you have known for a long time had a change in attitude or beliefs, and is not working out for you anymore, do not be afraid to let go from them. Sometimes, we have to let go of other people to be a better person.

5. Learn now or never

There are things in life that you can learn while you are young, but might be harder to learn as you get older. For exmple, learning a new language or learning how to swim. If you want to learn something, do it now and not later, because before you know it, your body might no be able to anymore. And situations do change. For example, learning something that requires a lot of effort might be a harder task when you need to balance taking care of a baby and doing a full-time job.

The things that we are able to do now may not be the things that we are willing to do or able to do so in the next year. So, do what you can do right now. Do not procrastinate because procrastinating does not work well with a fast-running time of life.

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.
