While some may say technology is leading us into isolation, it can serve as a way to help us spend more time with the people we love the most.
Here are four ways technology can help balance our lives.
- It can get us there faster. With navigation or crowd-sourcing apps, we can find the fastest route without unfolding a single map. The time saved can be spent doing what we want, instead of being helplessly stuck in traffic.
- It can give us a productivity boost. When used correctly, apps and tools can be a secret weapon against inefficiency. Some apps sync all notes, to-do lists, clippings and general reminders across all of your devices, so you have everything you need no matter what equipment you’re using. Other apps create to-do lists to share with friends, family or co-workers.
- It streamlines news and information consumption. Thanks to tech, we now receive news and information faster than ever before and in a more organized, digestible way. Some video news services analyze world news and produce two- to three-minute video clips you can stream.
- It cuts normal tasks in half. Grocery shopping is easier thanks to Publix Delivery powered by Instacart, which delivers groceries when and where you want. Other options like Publix Curbside allow you to pick up your order on the way to your destination without leaving your car. Both services save you time when you’re in a pinch.
