Your Phone Is Your Most Powerful Health Tool<em></em>
Zan Romanoff for Dyson

In the 21st century, our lives are quantified and optimized like never before. We wear step counters and heart rate monitors; we can enter every morsel of food that passes our lips into a diet tracker app and see exactly how we’re getting our calories each day. But what good is all of that information if you’re not

Design Matters: If You Don't Love The Way It Looks, You Won't Use It<em></em>
Tatum Dooley for Dyson

A side effect of living in the 21st century is the surplus of new objects that we surround ourselves with: the chargers, gadgets, cell phones, televisions, cords, and various electronics that are introduced to the market each year. My apartment is not large by any means, so with space at a premium I have to carefully

My Mom's Alexa Gets Her Groceries — And Her Music Taste
Elizabeth Kiefer for Dyson

My dad was the music man. A gifted guitarist who played in a band for longer than I’ve been alive, he would take my sister and me on Saturday afternoon trips to Best Buy, back when people still bought CDs. Together we would scour the aisles for new albums he’d read about in Rolling Stone; back in the car, he would

How to Keep Your Storage Spaces Neat and Clean

When it comes to home maintenance, no one would describe my instincts as Type-A. But I am regularly and rightly identified as someone who experiences FOMO: I have proudly slurped Crystal Pepsi, used a Thighmaster, mastered the moves to the Macarena, and got an “A” for effort in attempting the same with Gangnam Style.

You're Getting Warmer<em></em>

Once, in college, I went to visit a friend for the weekend. He generously loaned me his bed — well, not so generously, since he would be sleeping at his girlfriend’s that night — and the heat, he said, wasn’t entirely reliable in his apartment. We were in Boston, and it was the frigid end of November. He gave me every

How To Maintain Common Areas In Your Home

In the three months between first viewing my house and when I closed on it, I devoted hours to mapping and remapping my ideal interior decorating scheme for when I finally got my keys. I imagined creating a Pinterest-perfect, guest-ready home as a one-time artistic project: I would lay a foundation of tasteful color

Home life can get hectic. Whether you’re raising kids, gunning for the next rung of achievement in your career, or simply traveling the world, most people could use a hand (or two or four) making sure their home is as impressive as they are. People used to have to hire a whole staff to keep their lives running

You know what we’re talking about: Like scraping food out of the deep crevices of your stove or getting an irritating bit of gunk out of your grout, what’s your so-gross-it’s-good home maintenance task? The one that leaves you peaceful and truly satisfied when it’s done?

In Defense of the Humidifier
Katie Bloom for Dyson

When you move east from the west coast, your friends, family members, and acquaintances — varied though they may seem in their preoccupations and personalities! — will all delight in murmuring the same words in your ear: but the humidity. And frankly: yeah, damn, the humidity. Not so bad, I lied to myself, until I

Your Apartment Deserves Some Mood Lighting
Zan Romanoff for Dyson

A well lit home has plenty of advantages: It’s nice not to be fumbling around in a too-dim room, or straining your eyes trying to read a hardcover (or the directions on a package of frozen pizza — whatever, we don’t judge). Plus, if you’re reading this, you’ve probably got a pretty nicely kept place. You don’t want it

Brew in Bed: The Smartest Ways to Make Sure There's Coffee When You Wake Up<em></em>

I am not a morning person. I work best between the hours of midnight and five am. I can sleep through earthquakes, thunderstorms, and my iPhone’s “Marimba” alarm (and “By the Seaside” and “Illuminate” and Playtime”) no problem. If Guinness accepted entries in the category “most times half-consciously hitting the

How to Save Water While You Shower

When I was a child, adults were often unreachable. My mother had a phone at her office and a landline at home, but if I called during her lunch break or over the weekend (my parents were divorced) I’d get her answering machine. Even if I left a message, chances were she wouldn’t hear it for hours.

How To Actually Keep All Your Plants Alive
Zan Romanoff for Dyson

A recent viral tweet wonders: “how many innocent succulents have been brutally killed by people trying to cure their depression”? We all want to believe we’re capable of keeping something other than ourselves alive — and though plants seem like they should be the easiest way to do this, in fact, they can be more

Help Your Cat Achieve Haughty Perfection by Bestowing These Gifts Upon Them<em></em>

Like other cat owners who are in denial, I tell people that my cat has the personality of a dog. She greets me at the door, seeks attention from human beings, and is seemingly affectionate… at times. “I wonder if Ziggy understand the concept of love,” I’ve said aloud to one too many people in my life. “Does she love
