There is only one purpose why companies are working day and night to come up with new technology every now and then; improve lives. Isn’t that what we want? A higher standard of living is what we dream of every day. It doesn’t matter if it is anything as simple as a light bulb or something as complicated as mind-controlling prosthetics, all technology tries to make our lives easier. With wearable technology, we are able to keep in touch with and reap all these benefits throughout the day. Since their introduction, wearables have made a considerable difference and brought about improvements in our lives.

What are they? Let’s take a look at some of the ways wearables have enhanced our standard of living:

Wearable technology keeps us safer

These days, people are constantly connected to at least once device during the day. According to statistics, an average smartphone user checks their phone at least 40 times during the day. When people are constantly using their devices, even when they are on the go, things can become really dangerous such as when driving or walking.

But, thanks to wearable devices like Bluetooth headsets and now smartwatches, they can talk hands-free and focus on the task at hand. With smartwatches, you are able to stay connected to your email, phone and applications without taking eyes off what you are doing. Voice commands can be used instead of hands and you can still consume digital information while focusing on the road.

Wearable technology makes things interesting

Who doesn’t want some fun and excitement? That’s exactly what new gadgets can do for you. The introduction of smartwatches and even virtual reality headsets have revolutionized the wearables industry and numerous others because they have opened up new avenues to explore. Therefore, they serve as a new source of entertainment because they come loaded with a wide array of functions that we can check out and use for different applications.

Wearable technology keeps us fit

Perhaps, one of the biggest impacts of wearable gadgets has been seen in the fitness industry because some of the widely-used technologies are aimed at making us healthier in our day-to-day life. As a matter of fact, nearly 75% of the people say that using wearable technology has made great improvements in their health. There are a multitude of wearable devices that are used. Some are used for creating goals that can aid you in improving your witness. Others are for monitoring activity levels of users, their nutrient intake and sleep cycle while keeping track of their progress and how close they are to achieving their goals.

Wearable technology can save lives

It is a given that staying fit and eating right is a very important part of our health. However, there are also other wearable technologies that can be even more crucial to your health and may also help in saving your life. For instance, a number of wearable devices are designed for elderly patients with diseases like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s that monitor their heart and other vitals and also have GPS trackers to alert healthcare providers and caregivers when something is wrong or if they wander off. Likewise, you can find autism and anxiety wearables at www.thetouchpointsolution.com.au/ that can go a long way in helping monitoring and controlling stress levels of patients, which can improve their treatment and boost their health.

These are just some of the ways that wearable technology has had an impact in our personal lives. Developments are still being made and new devices are being introduced on a regular basis that will continue to lead to even further improvements.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work.

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.
