In today’s world, we can pretty much do everything from our phones shy of toasting bread or walking the dog (maybe we can do those things too, I haven’t checked!). I won’t deny – I have way too many apps on my phone and…guess what? I don’t even use half of them. Classic case of the 80/20 principle – 20% of them get 80% of my attention – that 20% being the most helpful apps.
When getting through a rough day, or just any day, I’ve really nailed it down so now I’m sharing my little secret – the most helpful apps to conquer all:
I’ve only just started using Headspace, but it’s already having a positive impact on my life. Headspace is a meditation app that takes you from newb to enlightened guru! Well maybe not that far but it’s an excellent introduction to the world of awareness and consciousness. Start your morning with just 5 or 10 minutes and see how focused, calm, and positive you’ll feel throughout the day. I like to do my Headspace right after getting up and before my morning coffee. IOS / Android
2. Way of Life
Ever heard the classic, “What gets measured, gets managed”?
Way of Life allows you to set daily goals, habits, and tasks you want to achieve and lets you to check them off every night. Sounds simple, right? Well it’s a little bit more powerful and effective than that.
WoL allows you to track both positive and negative habits such as “Read my book”, “Went for a run”, and “Ate a shit ton of chocolate”. It then gives you graphs and statistics to track your progress and obvious trends. IOS / Android
What I’m tracking:
- 2L of water per day
- Read my book
- Used Headspace
- 30 mins technology free
Fun Fact: When making dumplings the other day, I searched “Chinese Cooking Music” and boom, there it was. Pretty sure that’s why they tasted so damn delicious. ?
I’m a list master – I write everything down so I find Evernote super handy. It gets you organized for life! You can take photos, write notes, and create different folders to organise them all. The best part about it is Evernote works on your phone and computer, then wirelessly syncs everything, making it super easy to work across multiple platforms. IOS / Android
