11 Surprising Things To Drastically Improve Your Life

October 10, 2012

Recently I've been sharing products that have changed my life ...

Hey, it's Noah aka Chief Sumo.

While showing off my Saxx underwear during a presentation, someone asked me what other gadgets have changed my life.

I figured I'd make my list available for all of you to have more ass-kicking lives.

I didn't realize until I had them how much better many of these items made my life.

Some gadgets are obvious like iPhones, sparkling water, etc. ...

However, I wanted to combine all the recent ones that have personally improved my life. (We don't get affiliate credit for these products.)

Fitbit

Fitbit Ultra

Why I love it: This little guy motivates me to get off my ass when I'm just sitting around. Bonus points: Now our entire office competes to see who can do the most steps in a day.

Apple Time Capsule

Apple Time Capsule

Why I love it: This is an expensive "router" but it can be used as a 2 TB storage device you can access remotely for free via iCloud. A faster router makes your overall internet experience better.

Magic Bullet

Magic Bullet

Why I love it: I despise cleaning a large blender! This little guy takes 2.3 seconds to clean (I timed) and you can drink straight from the blender cup. Check out this green protein power smoothie recipe.

SAXX Underwear

Saxx Underwear

Why I love it: Game changer. Until you try something this comfortable and form fitting it's hard to appreciate. Sorry ladies. :(

Withings - Wifi Bodyscale

Withings Wifi Bodyscale

Why I love it: I've found weighing myself first thing in the morning helps me make better decisions throughout the day. Previously I was recording it in Google Spreadsheets but this scale does the recording automagically.

DreamTime Inner Peace Eye Pillow

Dreamtime Inner Peace Eye Pillow

Why I love it: At a random Chinese massage parlor in New York (not that kind) they put this over my eyes while I rested. It was magical and I use it almost nightly. The lavender smell is amazing!

Philips Sonicare Electric Toothbrush

Philips Sonicare Electric Toothbrush

Why I love it: I love brushing my teeth twice a day and this electric toothbrush tells me exactly how long to brush for.

Thermos Vacuum Hydration Bottle

Thermos Vacuum Hydration Bottle

Why I love it: My brother spends way too much time researching things. He moved to the desert of Arizona and talked for hours about how long this water bottle could keep the ice frozen inside. #true

Remote Control Power Switches

Remote Control Power Switches

Why I love it: This is a crowd pleaser anytime you bring over guests. Wow them with delight. Now you can feel like you're in a fancy hotel at a fraction of the price.

D-Link Wireless Camera

D-Link Wireless Camera

Why I love it: Let's me watch a live-stream video of my man cave while I'm traveling so I don't get home-sick. If someone enters I get an email alert.

Sriracha

Sriracha

Why I love it: Enough said.

Enjoy!

Contest: Leave your favorite non-obvious gadget in the comments below and I'll buy 1 person any item from this list. (over)

Congrats to Derek Wyatt who got himself a sexy new Fitbit.
