These days, our days are full of technology. We use it for everything we do, from work to home life. We just can’t escape it, and we don’t want to if we are honest. So instead of pretending like we are going to cut the cord, how about we embrace it and use apps that are going to make our lives easier. Here are some great apps that will help you coast through your day:
Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock: Want to wake up without the loud screeching alarm of doom? I recommend getting the Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock. It is an app that will monitor your sleep cycle and will wake you up during your lightest sleep phase. It will do this during a 30-minute window that ends at your set alarm time.
Trello or Todoist: Both of these apps are amazing for setting up personal and work tasks. You can create to do lists and add check items off as you finish them. You can also share them with others, which is great for the workplace. I use Trello for my work every day. It helps me stay on task and get the work done I need to.
Key Ring: Are your keys covered in loyalty cards? Do you hate digging through your wallet trying to find the actual card? Well, the Key Ring app is here to help. It stores all of your loyalty cards, so the only thing you have to do is open the app, click on the card, and have the retailer scan your phone. It’s that simple!
Evernote: I am a huge fan of Evernote. You can scan documents and keep notes with this app. You can also add pictures to your notes. You can also save things you see online for later. This app is a big organizational app, and I think you will just love it.
Happier: A positive morning is key to a good day, or so I think. So one app you should consider using is the Happier app. It combines a gratitude journal with social media. This means you can post positive and happy moments in your world, and see tidbits from others. It’s a good pick-me-up when you need it.
Spotify: Nothing gets you through the long afternoon like music does. I am a firm believer that music can control or enhance your mood. So when stress sets in or your energy level drains, consider turning on a Spotify playlist. You also can make your own playlists with your favorite songs. If you hate the ads, go premium. It’s a win/win all around really.
GasBuddy: We all like to save a little money, so why not save money filling up your car with gasoline too? GasBuddy is an app that lets you see what the gas prices are around you. This will help you pick what station to purchase from so that you can save the most money.
Waze: I didn’t know about Waze for a long time, and once I got it I felt like I was living under a rock. This app is the best GPS app that I have found so far. It will not only give you directions, but it will tell you where there is construction, traffic congestion, and so much more. This app is my go to for travel.
BigOven: Planning out dinner can be such a pain. You are sick of eating the same things you always eat, you want something that cooks quickly, or maybe you are just learning to cook, no matter what there is an app that can help. Try out BigOven. There are over 350,000 recipes on that app. I’m sure you will find several delicious eats.
