There are activities to do with family, work emails that demand attention all day long and household chores that never seem to get done. Sound familiar? If so, it’s important to make time to reduce your stress levels and nurture your mind and body.

Save Time and Effort Wherever You Can

When you are super stressed it’s important to simplify your life wherever you can. Instead of going shopping several times a week, plan one trip to one store and get everything there. Set aside a half a day on the weekend and do all the prep work for your weekly meals and evening dinners will come together with ease during the week. It makes things easier if you can take care of appointments over the internet instead of having to drive across town. If you live in Missouri and you want to get your medical marijuana card you can do everything you need to online. It’s only $139 for an evaluation and you can get the required forms and apply for your card, all from the comfort of home. If you want to book a hair appointment, do it via Facebook or give the salon a call. Saving time and effort by leveraging technology will give you back so many hours of your precious time.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
