In the past few blogs, I have discussed the benefits of how good habits can change your life. Well, how do you start you may ask? I understand sometimes it could be hard just to do it and sometimes you may need that little nip in the bud to start. Well, that’s where technology can help. Here are the top 5 productivity apps.
Do you like video games? Habitica may be the app for you if you want to bring some positivity in your life. Input your productivity goals into this app; the more you achieve, the more levels of the game you will beat. As you accomplish more of your objectives, you’ll unlock features such as armor, pets, skills and quests.
Ever been to a networking event or out for a coffee where you meet someone but you can’t remember their name?? Humin remembers all those tiny details. All you need is someone’s number, and Humin will do the rest. You’ll be able to search through your contacts using familiar phrases like “met yesterday” or “lives in Calgary.”
Spend too much time on Facebook on your phone? Workflow lets you customize your phone so that you can skip time-wasting tasks. By telling your phone what to do when it notices a particular action, you can instruct your phone to call an Uber before your next client or upload your latest photo to Instagram, and virtually any other string of actions you can think of. Workflow comes with a price of $2.99.
Has an idea ever popped up in your head in the middle of your shower or if you are driving someplace where you thought to yourself “this is a very good idea, I should remember it” and then you totally forget what the idea was? Evernote can help! Evernote is my favorite app on this list. Evernote is an online collection of everything you want to remember. It stores photos, web pages, notes, PDF files, audio clips and to-do lists. Also once you add things to your notebook, they’re completely searchable and can be accessed on your desktop, the web, or your mobile device.
I save the best for last. Trainerize is like having a personal trainer in your back pocket. Don’t have time to go to the gym or a personal training studio? Do you have gym equipment at home but still require that push that only a personal trainer can give you? Download this app and if you hire someone like me, you will get a personalized workout program directly to your phone. Trainerzie is also way more affordable than personal training, and you will see results guaranteed. If you want to know more about this our prices range anywhere from $180 per month to $240 per month. Contact us for details.
APPS WORTH MENTIONING
IRUNRUN- Enter a habit you want to start to track, start your week at 0 and work up to 100 by the end of the week. It’s like getting tested in high school all over again.
TIMEFUL- This is a calendar app mixed with a to-do list. The app’s algorithm learns how you get stuff down and smartly suggests ways to build new habits and get things taken care of, all on your terms.
