Ever wonder if the people on the bus are judging your grammar skills while you text your partner about how last night’s dinner has you hanging out in the bathroom for a bit longer that usual? Do you wish that you could complain about your upset bowels without worrying about the stares and sneers of strangers? These gadgets would let you overshare without having to fear that someone will overhear. Would you use them?
Sometimes it’s hard to find the time to do all the activities that can help keep anxiety under control. So combining them into one enjoyable activity (hanging out with your fuzzy little pal) could make managing those fears and worries a little easier.
Would you pop a stress-busting collar on your dog?
Does the uncertainty of the future keep you from taking steps towards achieving your dreams? What if you had a tool that told you the statistical likelihood of your dreams becoming reality and gave you tips, ideas and actions you could take to improve those odds? Would it help you get started, or could it keep you motivated during frustrating moments?
Or would knowing that the odds are against you stop you from starting, leading you to fall into a funk and give up entirely? Or, alternatively, what if your goals weren’t all that noble, would it still help you anyway?
Maybe there is something to be said for uncertainty.
You might be thinking, can’t you just turn your phone off, or put it on silent? Well that might mean missing out on the really important stuff, like an exciting conversation with a new love interest, or on a notification regarding your approaching takeaway order… Who would want to block that out?
So tell the annoying, nagging notifications from work and your health apps to STFU and let all the exciting conversations flow through!
Would you use a device that kept your electronics quiet?
Sometimes you just need a break, a few days off to reset your brain and reconnect with the things you love. But sometimes it can be hard to get that mental health break, wouldn’t it be nice to leave the negotiations to someone else?
And mental health support at the click of a button, sure beats running around doctor’s offices when you’re short of time and need some help.
How weird is it when you realise that you’ve been reading your dreams? Apparently that moment between wakefulness and sleep is called hypnagogia. Would you want to be able to hang on to those moments so that you could explore them the next day?
Maybe the reason those moments are so exciting and strange is because they are so hard to grasp!
