What kind of life do you lead? Are you into physical activity, working out to carve your body into the image of Adonis or of Athena? Or perhaps you actively travel in the manner of Hermes, taking in new sights, experiencing foreign cultures, and appreciating different worldviews?
Either of them is fulfilling by itself, but together, both can grant you enough happiness to last a lifetime.
Yet life is short and limited of time. Young people have their career to work on, the elders have family to watch over, and those in between may experience midlife crises before, during, and after reaching half their lives.
Thank the universe, then, for technology. Because in this age, there exist devices that make it convenient for you to chase after your dreams while maintaining the status quo at home or at work.
Many of those gadgets are a must-have. Here are some of the latest examples of those tech essentials for workout enthusiasts and globe-trotters.
Illumiseen LED Dog Leash
Domestic animals live brief lives, unlike humans, whose life span averages to a century. In animals’ eyes, humans are like elves, sage-like and near immortal.
One activity common with pet owners is to take their dogs for a walk. Some smart individuals sneak in a bit of exercise to that routine by jogging instead of walking, their furry companions happily (or reluctantly) tagging along. Others smarter still use reflective dog leashes, especially if they’re doing it in the wee hours of the morning or at night, when light is scarce.
Why do you need one? So that commuters and motorists can see you and your dog from a distance and avoid bumping or hitting either of you. In other words, safety.
Besides, should your dog somehow get loose, spot a cat, and rocket off on their own, you can easily keep track of them from the glow of their LED leashes.
TYLT Energi Backpack
Since you’re a citizen of the information age, you probably have a smartphone or use computers. How else are you reading this article? Via a friend narrating it to you? (Well, that works too.)
You should know how inconvenient it is to lose power, especially when you’re away from home, far, far, away where you have no way of recharging your mobile or portable. How then will you stay in touch with your friends and family?
You must also know, by virtue of common sense, that travellers need a bag to carry all their stuff vital for their continued sojourn and survival. Now, what if there were a backpack that can store auxiliary energy for your devices and charge them at a later time? Well, that’s exactly what an Energi backpack can do.
With one, you don’t need to buy a separate power bank, which will also fill up precious space in your pack. You can save money that way too.
With an Energi backpack, you can keep yourself on the grid no matter where your feet take you.
Anker Nebula Capsule
When hitting the gym (or doing bodyweight training in the park), you always want to maintain proper form specific to each exercise. Otherwise, you won’t gain as much muscle, or worse, you can even permanently injure yourself.
For example, when doing dead lifts, an exercise for strengthening your lower back, you must keep your spine in the neutral position all throughout your lifting motion and in every repetition. However, it may be hard to remember every exercise form amid your workout routine, particularly when you’re getting exhausted.
Even gym buffs can forget the right stance for a new exercise they’re trying out. Usually, in that situation, they look up the move again using their phone, often referring to a few video tutorials to make sure they learn the correct form.
You can do that too. But watching a video on your phone can be inconvenient. So use a mini projector instead. Anker’s latest Nebula Capsule can be a great choice.
All you’ll need is a flat, light-colored wall to project your video on, and you can follow your video tutorials as you work out.
Mini projectors are also useful when travelling. With your phone and your Nebula Capsule, you can video call your loved ones back home. You don’t need to take a bulky laptop with you.
Now you know some of the latest tools that can make it easier for you to work out or to travel. You have fewer excuses to avoid doing either or both.
Life is short. You can spend your days working for someone else’s dream, or you can achieve your own goals, your own desires.
So what kind of life do you lead?
