Use “Trackr” So You Will Never Waste Time On Finding Small Items Again

Use “Trackr” So You Will Never Waste Time On Finding Small Items Again

Forgetting where we put something can be frustrating. With the amount of essential items we carry around with us daily, the increase of inconveniently losing something we desperately don’t want to lose comes with it.

Losing our phone, for example, isn’t ideal but at least we can ask someone to call it and usually that’s all it takes to discover it under a pile of papers. However, our wallet, house keys or car keys are another story. If we lose these then we’re going to be spending a large amount of panicked time trying to backtrack our movements, doubting our ability to remember anything and convincing ourselves we’re going mad. Not to mention the thought of what we’re going to do if we never find them again.

Imagine it’s the middle of winter. You’re stuck outside the house fumbling for your house keys. The baby is crying and everyone is cold and getting agitated but you just can’t find the keys. Maybe you left them in the car? Maybe you left them at your friend’s house after having dinner? Maybe you dropped them somewhere outside? Whatever happened you can’t get into the house, you feel helpless and nothing feels more frustrating.

Lost That Essential Item? This is The App That You Don’t Want to Be Without

Trackr Bravo is a cool way to bring peace of mind when you realise you’ve lost those keys, your phone, your wallet, your bag or even your wandering dog. The tag easily attaches to your keys, slim enough to fit into your purse or wallet, safely into the pocket of your bag, or even on the collar of your pet.

With the help of the Trackr app on your phone, the tag will send a signal to it indicating where the item is and if it’s your phone you’ve misplaced, then simply hitting the button on the tag will cause your phone to ring and alert you to its location.

Quick Guide on How to Use the Bravo Trackr

It’s simple to use. Once you’ve purchased the Trackr, it connects up to your phone using bluetooth and can be easily attached to any item you want to track.

    If, for example, you realise you’ve misplaced your keys, the mobile app will locate the keys using the GPS locator. You then have the option to get the device (attached to your keys) to make a noise in order for you to easily locate it.

    The beauty of this option is, if you happen to lose your phone, you can use a Trackr device to allow your phone to make a noise even if it’s been switched to silent mode.

      Reassurance also comes with their Crowd GPS Network. This means if you’re having trouble locating your lost item, it can also be found if another person’s Trackr comes within 100 feet of your item. If this happens, the Trackr will instantly alert your phone to its location.

      So, if you never want to fear losing your valuable items again, purchasing this handy tracker will reassure you in finding them quickly and easily. Not only that, but you’ll be joining a growing community that works together to locate them safely, minimising inconvenience and maximising peace of mind.

      Productivity Boost: How to start your day at 5:00 AM

      Productivity Boost: How to start your day at 5:00 AM

      I have been an early-riser for over a year now. Monday through Friday I wake up at 5:00 AM without hitting the snooze button even once. I never take naps and rarely feel tired throughout the day. The following is my advice on how to start your day (everyday) at 5:00 AM.The idea of waking up early and starting the day at or before the sunrise is the desire of many people. Many highly successful people attribute their success, at least in part, to rising early. Early-risers have more productive mornings, get more done, and report less stress on average than “late-risers.” However, for the unaccustomed, the task of waking up at 5:00 AM can seem extremely daunting. This article will present five tips about how to physically wake up at 5:00 AM and how to get yourself mentally ready to have a productive day.

      Many people simply “can’t” get up early because they are stuck in a routine. Whether this is getting to bed unnecessarily late, snoozing repetitively, or waiting until the absolute last possible moment before getting out of bed, “sleeping in” can easily consume your entire morning. The following tips will let you break the “sleeping in” routine.

      Relocate your alarm clock.

      Having an alarm clock too close to your bed is the number one reason people simply cannot get up in the morning. If your alarm clock is within arms reach of your bed, or if you can turn your alarm clock off without getting out of bed, you are creating an unnecessarily difficult situation for yourself. Before I became an early-riser, there were many times that I would turn off my alarm without even waking up enough to remember turning it off. I recommend moving your alarm clock far enough away from your bed that you have to get completely out of bed to turn it off. I keep my alarm clock in the bathroom. This may not be possible for all living arrangements, however, I use my cellphone as an alarm clock and putting it in the bathroom makes perfect sense. In order to turn off my alarm I have to get completely out of bed, and since going to the restroom and taking a shower are the first two things I do everyday, keeping the alarm clock in the bathroom streamlines the start of my morning.

      Scrap the snooze.

      The snooze feature on all modern alarm clocks serves absolutely no constructive purpose. Don’t even try the “it helps me slowly wake up” lie. I recommend buying an alarm that does not have a snooze button. If you can’t find an alarm without a snooze button, never read the instructions so you will never know how long your snooze button lasts. Not knowing whether it waits 10 minutes or 60 minutes should be enough of a deterrent to get you to stop using it.

      Change up your buzzer

      If you use the same buzzer day in and day out, you begin to develop a tolerance to the sound. The alarm clock will slowly become less effective at waking you up over time. Most newer alarm clocks will let you set a different buzzer tone for the different days of the week. If you change your buzzer frequently, you will have an easier time waking up.

      Make a puzzle

      If you absolutely cannot wake up without repetitive snoozing, try making a puzzle for yourself. It doesn’t take rocket science to understand that the longer your alarm is going off, the more awake you will become. Try making your alarm very difficult to turn off by putting it under the sink, putting it under the bed, or better yet, by forcing yourself to complete a puzzle to turn it off. Try putting your alarm into a combination-locked box and make yourself put in the combination in order to turn off the alarm — it’s annoying, but extremely effective!

      Get into a routine

      Getting up at 5:00 AM is much easier if you are doing it Monday through Friday rather than sporadically during the week. I recommend setting an alarm once that repeats everyday. Also, going to bed at about the same time every night is an important factor to having a productive morning. Learn how much sleep you need to get in order to not feel exhausted the following day. Some people can get by on 4-6 hours while most need 7-8.

      Have a reason

      Make sure you have a specific reason to get up in the morning. Getting up at 5:00 AM just for the heck of it is a lot more difficult than if you are getting up early to plan your day, pay bills, go for a jog, get an early start on work, etc. I recommend finding something you want to do for yourself in the morning. It will be a lot easier to get up if you are guaranteed to do something fun for yourself — compare this to going on vacation. You probably have no problem waking up very early on vacation or during holidays. My goal every morning is to bring that excitement to the day by doing something fun for myself.

      As I previously mentioned, I have been using these tips for a very long time. Joining the world of early-risers has been a great decision. I feel less stressed, I get more done, and I feel happier than I did when I was a late-riser. If you follow these tips you can become an early-riser, too. Do you have any tips that I didn’t mention?
