Maximize your business day
We could all use a little more maximization and automation in our daily lives to make our time and focus at work more productive. From self-brewing coffee pots to smart thermostats, there are a range of gadgets that can help make our hectic business lives just a little bit easier.
Here’s how you can optimize your daily routine to maximize your business day with these five gadgets:
Conserve Energy With the Touch of a Button
Nobody likes to do the dishes. Between the soaking and scrubbing, washing the dirty dishes is one of the most disliked household chores. Today, top-of-the-line technology is available that makes this tedious task just a little bit easier. High-tech dishwashers are made with smart sensors that use just the right amount of energy to wash a particular load, saving energy and time on this routine chore without getting your hands dirty.
Get Your Coffee Automatically
Start your mornings with a warm cup of fresh-brewed coffee, but not from the local coffee shop where the lines are too long. And don’t worry about brewing it yourself. Simply set your preferences with a programmable coffee machine and enjoy your brew the next morning, making hectic mornings a little less stressful. Gear Patrol cites the Bonavita Brewer as one of the top automatic coffee machines. This machine can brew up to eight cups of coffee in about five to six minutes, keeping it warm for hours with the help of a heated base. The drip-brewing system also takes up little counter space.
Set the Optimum Temperature at Home
Too hot? Too cold? Finding the perfect temperature balance for your business is no longer a problem with Nest. Described as a learning thermostat, Nest automatically adapts to your life and adjusts as the seasons change. This smart thermostat programs itself to your preferences in just a week. You can even check in on your thermostat while you’re away via your smartphone or device, as Nest also has a handy app. Plus, the easy-to-install thermostat is designed to save energy, which saves you money on your heating and cooling bills.
Wake up Naturally
There’s good reason to switch up your alarm clock. Sometimes alarm clocks can shock you awake, rather than wake you up gradually. Consider a light-up alarm. Similar to waking up with the sun, the Philips Wake Up Light beeps softly at the time when your alarm is set, but it also begins to simulate a natural sunrise 30 minutes before waking. This can leave you feeling more refreshed, less groggy and ready to conquer your day.
Get More Done
If you’re having trouble staying productive and getting work done while you’re at work, consider taking more breaks while on the job.
It’s true. By using the Pomodoro technique throughout your workday, you might actually get more done despite taking more breaks.
Developed in the early 1990s, the Pomodoro technique is a simple productivity measure that can be easily implemented into your daily life. Simply choose a task that you would like to complete, set your timer for 25 minutes and work on your task until the timer runs out. Following the end of the timer, take a short break and when you’re ready to get back to work start your timer over again. Every four times take a longer break. At the end of the day you might realize you’ve finished all your tasks and then some.
