In a world of constant stimulation taking a step back from the chaos isn't necessarily a bad thing. Everyone needs to have a lazy day now and then, a day for you to decompress and regroup. But how much lazy does it take to be truly lazy and is that bad? Or is lazy not bad at all?

One thing is true laziness has been on the rise as demonstrated by how we now speak to one another. In place of words, we now use letters, acronyms and emojis, as if typing a word is too overwhelming to even consider. While some people blame smartphones and technology for making us lazy, the more apathetic among us would argue that laziness is a lifestyle. In its purest definition laziness means the quality of being unwilling to work or use energy or the act of being idle.

If your lifestyle is idleness why not make the most of it? Use the very technology that started this new trend of lethargy to your benefit. From answering the door to making coffee from your bed, technology has ways that can let you embrace your inner lazy.

Why clean your house if technology can do it for you? From dish washing to vacuuming you can find smart devices that keep your house clean, and all you have to do is push a button. These devices can clean your house while you spend a happy afternoon with Netflix.

There are two versions of the Ring doorbell, one connects directly into your existing doorbell wiring, and one that you just drill into your entry way that works on WiFi. Both work well, you would just have to change the batteries in the version that isn't connected via wire. Click here to buy.
