Fun ways to use a countdown clock.
Our tool can be very useful in many situations both at home and at work. Here are some of them for your inspiration:
- It is a crucial tool in every kitchen - Most of the activities that cooking involves are restricted within certain time frames. When you are baking a pie or brewing some tea it is advised to finish that in a certain period of time. In some cases the consequences are minor and it is not a problem when you overdo it but sometimes you need to know the exact time left. That is where the countdown clock comes in. It is the most traditional application of this tool.
- Leaving home (or the office) on time. We have all been there. You have a train to catch but you lost track of time and end up leaving far too late to catch it. To avoid that situation use our timer to point the exact moment when you really have to leave. You don't have to keep staring at the computer screen - you will now when the time is up when you hear the ring.
- Are you trying to maintain a regiment of exercising for 30 minutes each day? Be honest about it and set the timer for that amount of time. It will also help you spread the different parts of your workout the way you want it spending as much time as you need stretching and warming up. Finally, you will know how much time is left and that will usually keep you motivated to keep on going for that 5 minutes that are left.
- Staying focused. We all know how hard it is these days to avoid distractions. Facebook and Twitter are very tempting. Unfortunately, if you decide to stop working even for a minute it may not be that easy to get back on track. You can avoid it by setting a timer and making a commitment to only do stuff that matter during that time. The opposite situation is also possible. You may be working so hard that you forget to make make some breaks. In this case the gong will remind you about having some time off.
- It may be a good idea to take a quick power nap. The studies show that napping can boost your performance. The idea is to sleep only for 15 or 20 minutes so using a countdown timer is advised. You have to get up as soon as the alarm goes off. Sleeping for any longer than 20 minutes will be counterproductive and will compromise the nap. Sleeping even longer can lead to sleep inertia, making you feel even more tired than before the break. That makes the countdown timer even more needed.
These are just some very basic examples of the potential applications of a countdown timer. I am sure that you can think of many more.The possibilities are in fact endless.
