Lets face it, the older you get the less interested you are in leaving your home. Every time you are asked to do something it seems more and more like a hassle. Technology has come such a long way that it is making it easier to actually enjoy things in your home that you would typically go out to enjoy. Below are a few examples.
A very popular date night and outing is to go to the movies. To go to the movies you are spending around $10 a ticket easily. On top of that you probably get snacks and drinks to enjoy during the movie. Why not skip all that and enjoy a movie from the convenience of your couch? Netlfix offers streaming services that bring many movies to your door. They even signed a deal with Disney to offer their movies as they are released on their streaming service. Another popular tool is the Amazon Fire TV Stick. People have figured out a way to hack the system that allows you to have access to all movies and TV, even ones that are in the theaters. Yes, some people enjoy the act of going to see a movie, but why not avoid the fuss and just enjoy it from home with all of the options that are now available?
Not to sound like a Debbie downer, but even the act of eating out has become a hassle. You deal with long wait times or cranky children… there has to be an easier way?!?! Now with apps such as Uber Eats and GrubHub, you can now get the meals from your favorite restaurants delivered right to your door. Skip the wait times and horribly behaved children and enjoy some peace and quiet at your own kitchen table.
There are many services available that take the hard work out of dinner. Most people resort to eating out to not have to cook but there are businesses now that offer services that do it for you! You can have food delivered pre-made or even pre-portioned with your ingredients for you to make it. It is becoming very popular.
Even if you wait until the kids go to bed you can enjoy some peace and quiet and make it a nice romantic evening by either ordering out or having a meal service.
Even Entertainment has been made easier to enjoy from your own. There are many gaming systems and online sites that don’t make it necessary to leave your home to enjoy. There are so many interactive games available on gaming systems and online as well. Many games/apps are popular and become pop culture fads like Pokemon Go. With all of this technology available who needs to leave home?
The items discussed above are all ones that are typically enjoyed outside the home as social activities. With technology and business evolving with our culture it allows them to be more convenient.
