Bring Smartness To Your Lives With Smart Technology Solutions

The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don’t really even notice it, so it’s part of everyday life.  Bill Gates

The above quote shows us the place technology has created in our lives. Whenever there is a technology advancement, people regard it either as good or evil. But we must certainly remember that technology has no character, how do we use it matters. Smart phones, smart devices have become integral part of our lives in last 10 years. Gone are the days when you used to sit for hours together chatting without even knowing that your day has been sedentary. Today you have smart wearable fitness conscious (pun intended) devices which buzz you every hour telling that you should move and take some steps just to be active. Being active was a revolution for the last 10 years. All it took is 10000 steps a day for a person to be active and healthy, claimed WHO( The World Health Organization). All doctors recommended that every patient walks a bit, fitness experts started endorsing the importance of 10k steps a day but what will measure the exact number of steps? Well, then we had these smart solution makers coming to rescue and giving us pedometers to track our steps throughout the day. But really? Pedometer did not help. We needed something amazingly smart to count our steps. Fitbit brought in the huge revolution in the league of Smart Wearables.

Are you fit at least a bit?

To be fit is the norm today. Completing 10k steps a day is a necessity to reinforce the belief in being active throughout the day. It is fun being active. You don’t sit much, you keep moving and keep doing something or the other just to be on track. Mainly, you accomplish a lot of work throughout the day. Fitbit worked on the same concept and brought in wonderful devices and apps which could be synced together to get you the perfect data. Data analytics was easy and could be done just on the touch.

Life of 10kers and others was made amazingly easy by this device which is an extension of many people’s lives today apart from the smartphone.

There have been instances when people have lost considerable amount of weight just by completing 10k steps a day. Many of them lost inches around their abdomen area and are happy just by completing the required number of steps. Fitness was never so easy. Many other brands came forward to deliver low cost but effective solutions and there is a whole new range of smart fitness wearables available in the market. How cool is that?

Lift your wrist to take the call

One of the wonderful piece of technology is – Apple Watch. It is a maverick device which works like your watch, your smartphone, your fitness tracker, your heartbeat monitor and so forth. All in one device which helps you to quickly go through your calls, messages and social media update.

How to make 2018 a great year!

How to make 2018 a great year!

December is here and we are just nearing an year end. Many of us must have had resolutions and through the year hardly 2 of them would have been accomplished, I bet. Some of us would just have not set up any resolution just because neither of them gets fulfilled but some of us would have done what they had decided pin to point this year.

We have hardly some days left ( 17 days to be accurate) and here is a foolproof guide to make it awesome in the last month.

How would you do that? Well…read on..

Knowing what you want from yourself:

  • Divide your life into Work, Family, Personal, Social categories
  • Deduce which of the following areas you would like to improvise on
  • Say for example Family, break down the things that you miss out on the family front.
    • Family
      • Dining together
      • Spending time with each other (Going for concerts, movies, get togethers)
      • Being with children ( Helping them with their chores and studies)
      • Playing with children ( Outdoor activities like trekking, hiking etc.)
  • Once you have the above list ready you can just tick on the action item for the coming weekend. Action item is nothing but a task which can be performed immediately. 

    • Family ( Action Items as per the priority)
      • Dining together ( 1 – Can be done today )
        • Check availability of all the family members including timings
        • Plan dinner accordingly.
      • Spending Time With Each Other ( 4 – Can be done on Sunday)
        • Check the tickets for concerts,movies or check invites for the get together if any
        • Send RSVP for get togethers
        • Take consent from the family on Saturday to book tickets.
      • Being with children ( 2 – Can be done today )
        • Helping children with their chores, is best done on weekend.
        • Check whether they have any homework left or any project work to be submitted over the weekend.
        • If exams are on, you can sit with them for preparations
      • Outdoor Activities ( 3 – Can be done on Saturday )
        • These activities can be planned in advance or on the go.

This is how in the next 3 days you will accomplish something which you have been planning for a long time and have been procrastinating for the whole year.

This is just the example.

The whole point of making these 17 days amazing is avoiding procrastination. 

If you are struggling to start the workouts – you are not alone. I am there in the boat too and I desperately want to go back to my workout routine. Somehow, things are not falling into place or I am waiting for too long for them to fall in place. 😉 To start the workouts, the best way is

  • To identify which time suits you the best.
  • Start with your favourite workout
    • Walking is the best thing to do when you want to start the workout
    • Home workout videos
      • I love home workout videos, generally they are the best when you stay in a unpredictable weather
        • I already have enlisted number of home videos in my this post
    • Run
      • Participate in any of the upcoming marathons to get the workout.
      • Some people need constant motivation like some challenges or marathons to be regular with their workout
    • Hobbies
      • Is there any class that you started last year and have stopped going?
      • Zumba, Aerobics, Bharatnatyam, Kathak? Start it all over again to get in your dose of endorphins.
    • Yoga
      • If you have been practising Yoga, this is the time to start it all over again but in case you would like to start, you have some wonderful help on you tube. Will detail out in the next post.
    • Cycling
      • Cycling is my best friend. You can start weekend rides with your friends and join any facebook group for cycling. They take longer rides on weekends. Workout with fun is the new name of Cycling

Most of us, including me suffer the new age issue called “Meal Planning”. Especially after marriage my meal planning prowess has grown multifolds. After a baby it has gone to a whole new level. If you would like to be food conscious, these 17 days can make or break your new year in terms of food.

You must be knowing that it takes 21 days to make a habit, we already have 17 in our hands. Men and Women both can do meal planning and it is a super easy stuff. 

With only 17 in hands..we have a lot of accomplish without procrastination..so are you game?
