To start your daily routine, you must remember to have proper breakfast,drink at least a glass of water,plan ahead for your appointments,glance through emails, check the latest news and organize yourself. This way, you can be productive and be assured to be wellness in your daily life.

This is a random thought. I saw a post on taking morning strolls in the local park. I asked myself what things can I do to start my daily routine? The time to complete these tasks needs to be an hour at most.Here is my list of probable tasks. These choices can be very helpful.You can choose any from the following list:

#1 Have breakfast: Some of you skip breakfast altogether and leave home on an empty stomach. When you do eat later, you can run into the risk of developing stomach-related problems.Cereals, oatmeal, fruit juice and a banana are good choices for breakfast. Thus, it is a good habit to adopt in your daily routine.

#2 Drink water: Drink plenty of water in your entire day. This not only quenches your thirst, but helps you to maintain a supreme body, help in good blood circulation, digestion and waste removal. I drink around 3 litres of water daily. Maintaining your body, by starting with a glass of water in early morning, should be added to everyone's routine.

#3 Make itinerary for future:It is always a good idea to plan for your future event. You can always check the route schedule ahead of a later appointment. I always do the same. You can also check out the place, ahead of your appointment. There is always traffic in early mornings. By taking this early trip, you can estimate the time for your original trip and leave ahead for an appointment. Appointments can come any days, so it is important to make this a part of your daily routine.

#4 Exercise: 30 minutes of daily exercise is recommended by healthcare professionals. This half an hour activity can include jogging,yoga and interval running. You can also include walking or tai-chi to this list. This activity is a definite must addition to your daily routine.

#5 Drink your favorite hot beverage: Tea, coffee or smoothie- whatever your favorite beverage is:make sure to serve yourself a drink. The first sip will open your senses, clear will mind and bring yourself to reality. You will feel alive and be ready for the long day. Do not forget to add this to your daily routine.

#6 Read daily newspaper: Whether you can get a copy of the weekly or daily newspaper, you should always make an attempt to keep ahead of the ongoing news. Nowadays, digital gadgets, such as cell phone and tablets, can offer this also. This activity should be a topmost priority in your daily routine.

#7 Check your email:We live in a digital world. Communication are often made by email. Once in the early morning, you should check your email. At least, skim through your emails and reply to the important ones. You should make this activity into a habit and an crucial addition to your daily routine.

#8 Organize: Being organized has its own benefit. For instance, it speeds up your work. Daily morning organization can help you tidy up your entire day and later the entire week. Adding this simple chore to your daily routine can eventually shape up your entire year.

Note that each time such a problem exist, windows automatically creates a dump file regarding the problem which might be causing the error.

This dump file can be used to debug the problems. You can locate the dump file using the in-built Event Viewer Utility or an external tool called the BlueScreenView created by NirSoft.

The known cause of the blue screen is the crashing of a low level software or probably a faulty hardware issue(s).

One of the biggest fall of most of these smartphones is the longevity of the battery lifespan. It is understandable that with the latest smartphones being upgraded to work faster and more powerful, the ability to drain battery dry is a true possibility. However, there should be a way to minimize battery drain to increase longevity..

Below are some of the tips that should help increase your android battery life span.

#1. Stop Apps that are not in use. Do you know that any apps running in the background that might  not be in use exert an extra load on the phone's CPU and memory and consequently cause the CPU  to work harder thereby consuming more of the battery power.. 

#2. Turn off your GPS radio and your Wi-Fi as well as your bluetooth when not in use. These  applications are the most hungary battery sucking hogs.  It is recommended to turn them off to save the life of your battery, unless you have a very important reason to use them.

#4 – Decrease the brightness of the screen of your android phone to make sure you save the battery lifespan. When in the dark, it is recommended you reduce the brightness manually to the extent that  you can see your screen as clear as possible. Increasing the brightness of your screen is highly  called for when you are outdoors, because the sun interferes with the brightness.

#5. Do you know how powerfully facebook and twitter apps drains the battery dry, if you are not sure, just turn of your twitter and facebook status notifications off and see how much power you might have saved. 

#6. Buy a portable power bank for your device and put your phone on charge whilst using it to browse the internet or basically playing with apps on your smartphone. 

A power bank is an external power source where power is saved basically by charging it, This saved power can be used to charge your smartphone when your battery runs down

The Image below illustrates what a power bank is used for !!

#7. Turn your Airplane Mode on when you accurately know that you are in an area where there is a poor or no signal. There constant search for signal by your phone can render your your battery dry faster than you can ever imagine.

I guess these few tips might help extend the lifespan of your battery and carry you throughout the day or travel.

I love my Samsung android phone to make a sound anytime I tap on the screen possibly when am typing (chatting). But not everybody loves it this way.

I got a question from a friend who wanted to know how he can possibly turn off the sounds that comes out of his Samsung Galaxy S4 anytime he taps on the keyboard of his smartphone.

The solution is simply, first you need to know how to navigate to the settings of your smartphone because turning off the key click of a sound produced on the Galaxy S4 is hidden under a set of menus in the settings. Here’s how to find it:

Screenshot of procedure

#1. First of all you have to Open the Settings screen, and then scroll down and select Language and Input.

#2.  Secondly, find Samsung keyboard and tap the gear-shaped icon.

#3.  Tap on the  Advanced.

Whiles here you can also turn of the key-tap vibration by simply unchecking its option just above the key-tap sound

I hope it was of help to you, if you have any other thing bothering you please get us informed.. Thank you...
