As your life gets busier, it’s important to find ways to simplify your daily routines. One way to do this is by taking advantage of automated technology. It’s a tool that can help save time and energy, leaving you with more room to focus on self-care. We never blink when using a washer, dryer, dishwasher, or microwave but I encourage you to extend your automation ideas even more.
I, personally, find using a juicer to make veggie drinks to be a huge timesaver. (See pic!)
Another time-saving example is using an automated vacuum cleaner. A machine that helps to keep your home clean, even if you’re not around, is crazy cool. By investing in an automated vacuum cleaner, you can save time on chores and free up a bit of relaxing NOW time.
Automated technology can be found in many different areas of your life. From the appliances used in your home to the systems that control avenues of transportation – less for you is more. Pay attention to these advancements for home and work to make your daily routines much more manageable.
Smart thermostats can regulate the temperature in your home based on your preferences and usage patterns. Smart lighting can adjust the brightness and color of your lights based on the time of day or the activities you are doing. These technologies not only make your life easier but can also help to save energy and money over time.
Team up with others to commute to work. Ride-sharing apps have automated the process of finding a ride and paying for it. Think out of the box when making transportation plans or when tools are available to do what you don’t need to be doing in your new NOW. Taking advantage of automated technology can help to simplify your life and make room for more retreat within self-care time.
It’s worth exploring the different types of automation available to find the ones that work best for you. Whether it’s a simple automated vacuum cleaner or a complex self-driving car, automated technology can help to make your NOW easier and more enjoyable.
Self-care isn’t just about adding things to your routine, it’s also about learning to remove things that don’t serve you well. Using technology is a smart strategy and just saying no when appropriate can also help you to prioritize your own needs to create a more fulfilling life.
