Welcome to 2016, where technology is advanced, responses are immediate, information is readily available…and we are lazy. Now don’t get me wrong – I love lazy. I respect lazy. And I think lazy is highly underrated.
Thanks to current technology I can video call, text, message, call, email, snap, tag, tweet and more, all from a device that fits in my back pocket. But having so much stimulation can be a bit overwhelming, #amirite? The key is finding a balance between staying connected and still exercising the right to be lazy. Not in a “let’s all skip work and watch netflix on the couch for the week” kind of way. I’m talking about taking advantage of the applications at our disposal so we can maximize our energy, time and efforts. When exercising my right to be lazy, I go to these apps:
This one is for all of the art buffs out there. Artbit is really easy, as you all you need to do is snap a work of art within the app and it instantly identifies and provides information about that specific piece. It even gives you audio explanations. No need to research any artworks, Artbit is great for when you’re in a museum, as all of the relevant information is available at your fingertips.
Even better, they have a map that navigates you to nearby exhibits and street art. No need to plan your route – the app does it for you.
