Is your smartphone making your life easier? If not, the staff at your South Austin apartments is here to help. There are thousands of apps out there designed to help you be more productive and efficient with your time, but a lot of people don’t even know they exist. Instead of wasting time — and your phone’s battery — with games, try using some productivity apps instead!
The blog post below is filled with recommendations for apps that will help you plan your day, quiet your mind, and even use your phone less often. Apps are amazing, and it’s high time you learned how they can help your life. Now that we’ve piqued your interest in productivity apps, let’s dive right into this week’s post! When you’re done reading the blog below, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at your community of apartments on William Cannon.
It might seem a little counterintuitive to download an app that will cause you to use your phone less, but hear us out. For a lot of people, phone’s are more of a way to waste time than anything else. The longer you leave your phone facedown, but the more you can get done without interrupting your workflow to check social media.
Forest is a simple yet effective app that displays growing trees on your phone. The longer you go without using your phone, the more the trees grow. If you pick up your phone and start tapping around, the trees will wither and die. It might sound childish, but it works!
Meditation is all the rage these days, and for good reason. People are busier than ever, and meditation is kind of a mini-vacation from all the stresses of day-to-day life. We recommend meditating in the morning, while your mind is still quiet from doing nothing but sleeping all night. If you’re new to meditation — which most people are — this app can guide you through your first couple sessions.
It can be sobering to see how much time you spend on certain things throughout the day. You might be surprised to see how much time you spend on your phone, or how much time you spend on work vs. “me time.” Hours can help you track your time so you can see where it’s going, and decide if you want to make a change. The interface is super simple to use, so you don’t have to worry about wasting even more time on your smartphone messing around with this app. All you have to do is tap the clock when you start and stop a task. The app will then place your time into different category and, at the end of the day, tell you how long you spend on each thing that you did.
With that, we’ve reached the end of our list of smartphone app recommendations. Thanks for taking some time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us here on the Canvas blogs page, residents! We hope that by reading this blog, you feel inspired to download some time-saving apps and boost your productivity.
