Technological advancements have really sped up in the past twenty years. It seems like there’s some amazing, new innovation every few months that completely changes the way we live our lives. In this new, faster world, it’s important to stay on top of whatever gadgets, devices, or technologies have the potential to improve your productivity.

So, here’s a list of five gadgets that’ll transform your life and ensure you’re as productive as possible.

Hydration monitors

Everyone knows they should be drinking more water, but it can be hard to remember when you get busy. Using hydration monitors can be a great way to stay reminded. Proper hydration can increase energy levels and elevate mood, ensuring that you’re always in the right zone for work. Staying properly hydrated is also beneficial to your health.

Video calling software

Programs like Skype and VOIP have made it possible to connect face-to-face without actually needing to be face-to-face. This technology is exceptionally helpful when you need to hold meetings with business partners or clients. It can be strange at first, but growing used to this technology will really free up your time.

Multiple screens

It’s a simple tool, but more and more people are getting onboard. Using multiple screens when working is a great way to monitor your various responsibilities and still stay fluid in work. It saves having to jump back and forth between tasks and disrupting your rhythm.

Sit-stand desks

Sit-stand desks are workstations that move from sitting to standing height without disrupting your work. They’re made to be quick and easy. Being too sedentary while working is a huge danger to personal health. Standing can reduce cardiovascular risks and decrease joint pain. Consider one of these desks to improve your quality of life at work and at home!

Smart boards

Here’s a handy gadget! Smart boards are whiteboards or “digital chalkboards” that record what’s written on them and share it via cloud technology, but they can also do much more than that. Most smart boards double as simplified web browsers. Combine these with video calling to make your long distance meetings really feel like the real thing.

Integrating technology in your life can not only be a time-saver, but it can reduce stress too. As work speeds up and demands become greater, it can be so easy to get frazzled. Luckily, utilizing these amazing advancements can really increase your productivity and reduce the burdens of keeping busy!
