In the wake of recent events, we’re all finding ourselves at home… well, let’s just say, a lot more than normal.
Doesn’t matter whether you’re doing it to follow guidelines for social distancing, self-isolation, or even quarantine. The fact is, spending all day long inside 4 walls—with or without kids—while trying to balance your health, your work, and your sanity is not easy.
So to help you take care of yourself—and to keep any boredom at bay (yours or the kids!)—we’ve pulled together a list of 11 incredible products that, quite simply, do both. Read on to find out what they are…
1. Feel Like You’re Outside Even When You’re Inside

Practical, modern, and attractive, these lightweight Bluetooth speakers can play your favorite music for up to 6 hours nonstop! What’s more, you can pair them up for that complete “surround sound” effect. Try playing your favorite stress-relief tracks or nature sounds on them, they’ll delight your ears (and your eyes)!

2. Have Kids? Try This For No More “Scary” Dark Bathrooms
It’s a given: most kids are scared of the dark—and would prefer not to venture out of their safe, warm beds in the middle of the night when they need to go to the bathroom. But when tensions are running high like they are these days, they can be even more nervous about leaving their room (even if they really, really need to go). That’s why smart parents are using this neat device that not only makes their kids’ fears of the dark disappear, but also prevents messy toilet misses!
Reader Tip: “My grandchildren LOVE them so much as the bathrooms are never dark anymore.” – Jerrilyn
3. Finally! It’s Now Possible To Reduce EMF Radiation In Your Home
Our homes are filled with more devices than ever before – laptops, WiFi routers, phones, game consoles – the list goes on. They’re quite useful… but sadly, they also emit heavy amounts of Electromagnetic Field (EMF) radiation, which our bodies absorb like a sponge. This can cause headaches, fatigue and more! That’s why we love smartDOTs – they reduce the EMF radiation coming from any device they’re attached to without causing any problems with the device itself. Genius!
Reader Tip: “Thank you to smartDOT for clearing my headaches and giving me more energy when working at home. I feel much better and have started putting dots on everything much to my husband’s amusement! Whenever I ask your advice or help with something, I receive a detailed reply really quickly, a great service, thank you! I thoroughly recommend these products.” – I. Watson

It’s a fact: stress and anxiety are the two major triggers of headaches and migraines.

6. Confidently Get Prescription Glasses Online By Testing Your Eyes— All By Yourself
In line with social distancing guidelines, many non-urgent health services are temporarily closing their doors… which means if your prescription glasses suddenly break or were anyway due to be replaced, getting an eye exam so you can get a new pair will be tricky, if not impossible.

Reader Tip: “Decided to try it since I needed a new eyeglasses prescription. Using it to test my eyes was really easy. I had a pair of bifocals made using the numbers given by the EyeQue test results, and they perform well.” – Reuben
