As you get older or things change in your life, you’ll experience physical and mental regression. It’s just the way of the world, but that doesn’t mean you have to lie down and take it. There’s a lot you can do to maintain your mind and body with age, especially if you buy into some of the latest gadgets available.
Hair Loss Cap
Hair loss affects men and women all over the world. It’s most common in men, two-thirds of which will have experienced some level of hair loss by the time they turn 35. By the time they’re 50, 85 percent will have significantly thinning hair. A whopping 25 percent will start losing their hair before they turn 21.
Women also experience hair loss, although it’s not as common or as drastic as men. About 40 percent of women will experience some kind of hair loss in their lifetimes, although only a small percentage will experience alopecia or baldness.
One of the most inventive and effective forms of hair restoration is a hair loss laser cap from Kiierr. You simply put on this smart cap and let it work its magic while you go about your business. The best part is, it looks like a normal baseball cap, so no one will know that you’re secretly working on hair restoration!
Mental Health Wearables
There are a variety of highly beneficial wearables on the market for those who suffer from various mental health disorders. “Whether you’re trying to deal with how best to relax or rest, or if you’re suffering from anxiety in some way, an increasing number of gadgets are available to improve your mental health,” says Jennifer Allen of PasteMagazine, pointing out several useful gadgets designed for mental health, including:
Reveal is a wearable device for those on the autism spectrum that alerts parents and caregivers when something is wrong. It can help prevent meltdowns and improve social abilities.
ELF EMMIT is a virtual assistant of sorts that you wear on your head, similar to the way you’d wear headphones. It helps you focus, sleep, meditate, and learn.
Feel is a device that helps you better understand and control your emotions, including happiness, stress, anger, sadness, and satisfaction. It monitors your electrodermal activity, blood volume pulse, and skin temperature to help you get more involved in your psychological health.
If you want to leave the house looking like the best version of yourself, smart mirrors are your game. One such mirror is Simplehuman Sensor Mirror, which tells you the best makeup to apply for the light you’ll be exposed to all day.
Better yet, it gives you time to enjoy entertainment or news while you get ready for the day. You can watch television, check the weather, read news articles, and scroll through social media all while applying makeup and doing your hair.
Poor posture leads to a number of mental and physical health problems. Studies have shown that it can increase depression and anxiety slightly, but more importantly, it can cause several lasting physical health problems. Many people who remain bent over a desk day in and day out develop scoliosis, chronic headaches, back pain, neck pain, loss of muscle mass, and inflexibility.
Some amazing gadgets have emerged to fix this problem, including a new posture trainer called Upright Go. This tool is attached to your upper back over the spinal cord and alerts you with a gentle buzz when you’re hunching over.
“The purpose of the Go isn’t simply to track, but also to train,” explains Jamie Rigg of Engadget who tried the tool for a month. “When you first use the device, you plug your weight, age and height into the companion app, and it comes up with a personalized training schedule for you. Each day, you have to sit or stand with good posture for a certain amount of time to get your gold star.”
With any of these gadgets, you can start 2019 off strong for a healthier, happier you.
