9 Tips to Lose Weight No Matter However Busy You Are

9 Tips to Lose Weight No Matter However Busy You Are

If you’re looking to lose weight, having a busy schedule can make the process infinitely harder, but it still shouldn’t be used as an excuse not to lose weight. That’s why this guide on how to lose weight even if you’re really busy is so fantastically motivating. We’ve highlighted a few of the tips below, but you’ll benefit immensely by reading the full article.

1. Add strength training to your routine. Even if you focus on just one muscle group a day and do three different exercises, (three sets of 15 for that muscle group) you’ll benefit.

2. Put yourself first.  Stressful situations can take your focus away from properly caring for yourself.

3. Eat whole, fresh foods in a rainbow of colors. Generally, the fewer foods you consume that come in a box or have a label, the healthier you’re eating.

4. Eat mindfully. Don’t watch TV and eat. Pay attention to what you’re eating.

5. Have a purpose for doing all this. Give yourself a fresh start. If it helps, start with the end in mind and think about how you want to feel when this year concludes

6. Set a simple routine and stick to it. One great way to kill your confidence is to constantly start and stop your fitness regimen.

7. Set rules that work for you. Figure out how often you will work out, the bad habits you are willing to give up and the good habits you will start.

8. Be open to surprising yourself. Think about how you feel when you finish an intense workout, run a mile when you never have before, finish a new weight lifting routine, or venture to a new fitness class you haven’t tried before.

9. Don’t chase perfect, chase perfectly healthy. Chasing some idealized vision of perfect doesn’t set people up to have healthy self-images or achievable goals.

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.
