Making the most of online services to fit your life around you
It’s no secret that the internet has made our lives so much easier – but are you making the most of all the things that online services can do? If you need a bit of advice on living your best life, here it is.
You can order anything, anytime
Everyone knows about online shopping – it’s hardly a secret these days. But when it comes to delivery, gone are the days of having to wait ages for deliveries on a lot of items, because you can order next day (or even same day) delivery instead.
If you’re looking to optimize your online ordering skills, Amazon is probably the most amazing example of this. You can order anything from their Prime Now service in plenty of cities in just a two-hour window. You could barely get everything you needed that quickly by going to the store yourself!
The internet can help with your health
Nowadays the weird and wonderful ways in which you can manage your health online are endless. Need support with your digestive health? Why not try a subscription for 12 weeks’ worth of probiotics, which you can sign up to while reading expert research on gut health. Delivered to your door, this is a structured stress-free health solution.
What about your eyes? For contacts – no prescription – it’s super easy to order contact lenses online. You can cut the middle man right out and, whether you live there or you’re simply on vacation, ordering contact lenses to the US couldn’t be easier. No RX is needed and so there’s no hassle.
Transport is a million times easier
What did we do before ride-sharing services? Before the dawn of Uber and Lyft, we had to worry about finding local taxi services, even when we were unfamiliar with the area. If you really want to make the most of online services in this respect, download all the apps that you can. Compare prices across the different providers to beat any surge. Consider “pooling” services as well, in order to get the best possible price.
You never have to go hungry anymore
From recipe box services to apps for takeaway, the Internet has taken the stress out of eating. Our lives are getting busier and busier, but eating is getting easier and easier. You don’t need to have a list (or worse, a stack of flyers) from local takeaways because you can see all the ones local to you using services such as UberEats or Deliveroo. If you prefer to cook but have no time to shop, get the ingredients delivered weekly to your door!
Top tip? Download discount apps for voucher codes. That way you can benefit from promotional offers on all of your favorite foods.
You’ll always be entertained
With subscriptions to Netflix and Spotify, boredom is a thing of the past – these services are literally available at your fingertips. If you really want to make the most of the multimedia available to you, download the apps to your phone, then download the things you most want to watch or hear so you can access them on the go, even without data.
No matter which area of your life you need to simplify, the saying really is true – there’s an app (or a website) for that!
