Fellow Products Carter Everywhere Travel Mug in Use

During a global crisis like the one we’re experiencing, it’s possible you have the time to fine-tune your daily routine. Like brewing your coffee in your coffee mug, fast charging your iPad, and getting a smarter helmet for your bike rides. These parts of your day-to-day life aren’t that hard, but they aren’t going away anytime soon. And now’s the perfect time to make them a little easier with some everyday gadgets.

And, to reduce stress and anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic, HelpGuide recommends focusing on the things that we can control. Things like maintaining our hygiene, getting better sleep, and avoiding surfaces that many people touch. In other words, we can refocus our minds. This is something I suggest wholeheartedly. Worried you’re not homeschooling enough? Be sure the kids brush their teeth twice a day instead. You’ll all feel happier.

Whatever part of your daily life you decide to devote more thought to, we’ve got some cool everyday gadgets that can help. With an easier daily routine, you’ll feel calmer. Maybe you’ll even have time to play those board games for the entire family you bought last month.
