standard June 9, 2017 Leave a response

One of the most important aspects of life is preserving yourself for the later years. Usually, this means a combination of healthy eating, exercise, and avoiding injuries and illnesses. Sadly, this isn’t always possible because we don’t live in a plastic bubble. We are all exposed to the outside world and all its harmful bacteria floating around all over the place, tripping hazards, fast cars, rollercoasters… danger everywhere, hah.

Thankfully, researchers are always looking for new ways to improve our lives, and in the past decade, we’ve seen countless new innovations that have helped us bolster our health to make us live longer, healthier and happier lives. To give you three ideas on how technology has helped us, here are a few advances that we’ve seen in recent years that can have a serious impact on your wellbeing.

7 Things To Consider When Introducing Technology To Your Home

It might sound a little odd to prepare a post about technology that isn’t describing all the new tech gadgets that you need at home. It sounds even more old-fashioned to spread the thought that technology can sometimes be bad. After all, in a world where you can pay coffee from your smartphone, the idea of showing the dark side of technology feels a little ludicrous. It’s a debate however that rages constantly, especially in the parenting world where kids know their way around a tablet better than their parents by their 3rd birthday.

So let’s discuss it! Is it the devil incarnate, that kids shouldn’t touch? Or should your entire household get on the gadgetry as soon as possible? There are pros and cons of course. It’s is about the possible life-changing consequences that the use of tech could have in the short and long terms on people, their lifestyle, and their social and mental development.

So should you be living in the tech house of the future? You should consider these points…

We’re always on the hunt for new furniture in this house – in the past month, we’ve replaced our TV stand and obtained a coffee table, which Short Rib has commandeered as his artist’s table and toy storage chest. It seems to work for everyone! Wes is now after a new TV (for the new TV stand, of course). I’m putting my foot down though, turning my attention to the smaller items of home décor.

I am big into eclectic mixes and unique items. Things I’ve never seen anywhere else, and that are all different in their own little way. When we were approached by UncommonGoods to have a look at their wares, I was genuinely in my own little piece of home furnishing heaven.

Are you really in control of your health?

I know you’re thinking “what the hell kind of question is that?” but I bet you haven’t really considered it before. I know I haven’t! Most people coast along in life without really taking control of their health matters until they’re forced to, when something goes wrong or a certain event happens that triggers it. And even then, it’s easy to lose focus and let other people control the direction your health takes. I’ve learned recently that it’s always best for you to take driving seat and make the most of your life and your health situation.

Even if you have a problem that’s getting you down, taking action and being in control can empower you. I’m suffering with pretty severe psoriasis at the minute, that is requiring very regular blood tests (and I hate needles) as well as tablets each week and consistent monitoring. There is no better feeling than being control of your own future, and this is even more important when it affects your health and wellbeing. Even though my treatment hasn’t completely kicked in yet, it feels better knowing I’m on the right track. If you’re still not quite convinced, here are some more top reasons to take control of your health.
