Tips On Buying The Right Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Tips On Buying The Right Robot Vacuum Cleaner

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that technological improvements in almost all departments have changed the way we lead our lives today. Gone are the days when we had to work hard at home to get our daily tasks done. With the advent of new-age electrical appliances, we have found significant support in our daily chores. In the recent past, this trend has also witnessed an upgrade. Electrical appliances have given way to robot-controlled devices that use Artificial Intelligence to complete our chores, as we spend our time in other productive purposes or even for relaxation.

One of the first tools that come to our mind that uses AI is a robot vacuum cleaner. These are easy to use and you can train your pets to operate them as well. They clear corners that would have never been possible with your ordinary cleaners. If you want to get the best services and benefits from their technological brilliance, you need to choose them wisely. Take note of the following points when you decide to purchase one of these robotic devices:

Features

While it is true that robot vacuum cleaners are very similar to a standard vacuum cleaner regarding its cleaning/sucking efficiency, it scores quite highly regarding its ease of operation. In the case of conventional vacuum cleaners, you have to take it around to various places in your home, under the carpets, behind cupboards, etc. to get them cleaned thoroughly. On the other hand, cleaners powered by robotic technology can be set to perform on their own, without even touching them. So, when you choose them, check for features like timer-settings, electric-charging facilities, detection of stairs and walls, the amount of noise control, and other features that will make your lives easier.

Size

If you want your robot vacuum cleaner to get under all the nooks and crannies of your home and clean the most difficult to access areas as well, you should get models that are small in size. Vacuum cleaners that are around 9.5″ in height would be ideal for you. When cleaners are this small, they will be able to crawl under beds, carpets, and cupboards to clean the tightest of areas in your home. Usually, all robotic cleaners have a small bin for collecting dirt, so this factor shouldn’t make a difference to you while choosing your robotic cleaner.

Battery Power

Select a robotic vacuum cleaner that comes with a long-lasting battery life. Lithium ion batteries are considered to be the best because they can be utilized for at least two hours at a time. Yes, these batteries are costlier than other models, but, they provide you with the full value of your money because you don’t have to change them as often as regular batteries. Also, choose robotic cleaners that get charged quickly, so that it acts as a handy appliance for you when you want to clean your homes quickly but perfectly. Some of the best models of vacuum cleaners take around five hours to get recharged fully. This is considered to be an ideal benchmark for you to compare against when you buy a new model for use in your home.

Do you know statistics show that 90% of household work are carried out by women? So, if you wish to get a man to initiate housework and the vacuuming, perhaps it might be time to introduce him to a robot vacuum cleaner. The first few times I used mine, I sat for hours watching it operate. I was utterly fascinated by how it traversed the labyrinth of my main floor living area. In fact, I was so excited, I could hardly wait for it to recharge so that I could start it up again.

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?
