Relax and de-stress
Whether it is work, study or daily errands, our lives can get quite hectic. Stress is a major factor that negatively affects our health and is one of the main contributors to migraines, immune system deficiency, nervous breakdowns and many other unfavorable conditions. Massage is one of the most effective ways to battle stress - but, let's face it, not all of us have the opportunity to visit massage salons regularly. In this case, having an electric head massager can come in very handy. By applying pressure to various points on your head, the massager stimulates blood pressure, improves metabolism, contributes to better sleep and more.
Keep an eye on your weight
Weight is a good indicator of what's happening in your body. Losing weight can be a sign of stress, malnutrition and other serious conditions. On the other hand, a quick weight gain can mean a hormonal disbalance, fluid retention, etc. That's why having a scale at home is really essential for ensuring your well being. What's even better is having a smart scale. In addition to letting you monitor your weight changes, it will be able to give you loads of other valuable information: body fat, BMI, basal metabolic rate, muscle mass, bone mass, protein, visceral fat level, physical age, moisture mass and more.
One of the most basic everyday health keeping routines is oral hygiene. The way you brush your teeth is very important and it is generally recommended that you do it for at least two minutes. Electric toothbrushes have been known to provide efficient cleaning and stain removal as well as offering a more comfortable tooth brushing experience. Children will enjoy using the gadget while adults will appreciate several cleaning modes, customized settings and a long service time. What's more, some electric toothbrushes even come with Bluetooth connectivity and provide useful dental health facts in the dedicated app.
Monitor your pressure
Blood pressure is one of the key health indicators. Normal blood pressure reading is more than 120 over 80 and less than 140 over 90. High blood pressure is additional stress on your blood vessels and can lead to serious heart conditions while low blood pressure can indicate dehydration, low blood sugar and other conditions. Keep an eye on your blood pressure with a portable blood pressure monitor (sphygmomanometer). These days, the portable gadget can be easily purchased for home use. High accuracy and simple operation make it a handy tool for any household and any age.
