For many of us, life can be quite chaotic at times. Between a demanding career, quality time with your spouse and kids, and occasionally, sleep, there’s almost always some task that has to be put off until tomorrow… or the next day, or the day after that. Technology will never solve all your problems, but a stable of reliable gadgets, gizmos and apps can help to keep your family’s life in order when you’re feeling overwhelmed. Here are five easy ways technology can simplify your life.
Keep track of all activities
You should keep track of your activities and actions in a shared calendar with email alerts so everyone is reminded of what’s coming up no matter where they are. This will ensure that you do not miss any of the things on your to-do list.
Host a family or lovers movie night
With so many OnDemand options, you certainly won’t be missing out and it’s much cheaper than going to a theatre. It will definitely build and boost family bond and improve your relationship with your significant other.
Take advantage of educational channels
The internet is a cesspool of information. You can take advantage of it in so many ways. For example, Googles YouTube can serve as an educational vehicle. You can learn and relearn anything and everything. However, ensure that you are learning the right things.
Sign up for a recipe of the day
You can get recipe emails from sites like recipepuppy.com. They allow for personalization based on the ingredients and types of foods you like, making dinner one less hassle at the end of the day.
Cut the (phone) cord
Use an iPad or iPhone to FaceTime with long-distance relatives. It’s nice to see a smiling face — especially one missed from miles away.
