I’m honestly so excited to start sharing the first of many videos coming your way! I actually love shooting and editing videos, but they’re really time consuming so it took me a while to find a way where I could strategically plan and shoot out videos given the little time I have. Now, I’m delighted to share that I have shot a few videos and am in the process of editing them; from health-focused ones to travel vlogs, so click here to subscribe to my youtube channel!
Today I’ll be sharing my absolute FAVORITE productivity apps that you can download straight on your phone! When we think of productivity tools, we often jump to planners, notepads, and other analog organization techniques. Unfortunately for many of us, it is just not sustainable to keep a paper organization system, especially in such a digital world. Here, I’ve rounded up my favorite productivity apps that will help you stay organized and get MORE done using your phone – no matter where you are! Yes, you heard right, now there won’t be any need to whip out your planner when you’re on the subway!
If you’ve been around the blog, I’m sure you know how much I love singing the praises of Asana – and for good reason, of course. One of my favorite features of Asana is the simple app that integrates into the desktop version. In the (free) app, you can mark tasks as complete, create new tasks, and even have conversations with clients! Now you’ll never be without your task list! Hooray for getting more things done!
2. Inbox by Gmail
This is a fairly new app that I recently learned about from a few friends, and let me tell you… I absolutely LOVE the idea + interface! Inbox is designed to group the email that arrive in your inbox so you can focus on the important & urgent ones. For example, all emails related to “purchases” (i.e. receipts, purchase confirmations) will be automatically filed into a specific group.
The app is extremely travel-friendly and you can easily access all booking confirmations with just a click of a button! Pretty nifty, right?
Another one of my absolute favorites! Although this app isn’t free to download ($1.99) I personally believe it is completely worth it and one I highly recommend. The purpose of the app is to keep the user off his/her phone for a certain period of time. You can set times in 5 minute intervals and once the time is up, a tree will be planted in your “garden”. If you exit the app before the time is up, the tree will die.
Once you reach a certain level, you can also start using your coins to plant real trees, which in my opinion, is a wonderful goal to work towards.
4. The Happiness Planner App
Recently launched, the Happiness Planner App is an extended (digital) version to the /Happiness Planner/ a globally-popular Planner brand that aims to provide users a mind & happiness-centered approach to planning.
One of my favorite features of the Happiness Planner App is the ability to “rate” your day in the health, productivity, and happiness categories. Although this app does cost money, I think it’s an wonderful option if you’re looking for a planner app that is beautifully designed which also keeps track of mental well-being.
Have you ever had so many things on your to – do list that you don’t know how to begin? This happens to me more often than I’d like to admit, so I often try to organize my to-do lists too!
Wunderlist is one of my favorite apps for this – the app allows you to create multiple to-do lists, and you can create “nested” lists and even folders of lists, which makes organizing a breeze!
The app is super user-friendly and there is barely any learning curve, you can even choose your own backgrounds (which decides the color scheme). Wunderlist is FREE and can be used on desktop, ios, and android – with the free option of syncing your lists!
Bonus! 6. Minimalist
If you’re looking for a “no-frills” to-do list app, Minimalist is definitely the one for you. Just like it’s name, Minimalist is an app that allows you to make very minimally designed lists. The app is free to download, but if you want multiple lists, you may choose to invest in a monthly/yearly/lifetime membership (it’s super affordable). This app is perfect if you get easily distracted or overwhelmed by the options in normal to-do lists and want a more streamlined approach to list-making.
