5 Best Productivity Apps
As 2023 comes to a close, we’re thinking about all the ways we can step into 2024 as even better, more productive versions of ourselves. There’s nothing like the chaos of the holidays to remind you how valuable productivity and organization can be! Especially when you want to be spending less time working or doing chores and more quality time with your loved ones. Luckily, tech can be our best friend, especially when it comes to helping us organize our lives. Let’s take a look at some of the best apps for productivity this year.
It can be difficult to wake up in the morning. If you find yourself snoozing (or even sleeping through) your alarm, Alarmy will help you be the morning person of your dreams. You can set missions in the app to go along with your morning alarm (like a math problem or a memory game) that will get you up and alert. You can also set bedtime alarms to remind you to hit the hay at the same time every night.
If you have an endless running to-do list in your head, it can be hard to focus on anything else. And those scraps of paper you’re jotting them down on and then losing aren’t cutting it anymore. TickTick helps you organize all of your to-dos and your calendar, and lets you sync everything across all of your devices. You can set deadlines, create to-dos from emails, organize things into different folders and categories, and more.
I love writing with pen and paper, but it can make it difficult to keep your notes organized and accessible. OneNote is a great digital notebook that lets you organize, revise, and share with others. And you can add mixed media like websites or pictures.
Notion is a fantastic shared digital workspace that makes working digitally a breeze. Connecting with coworkers has never been easier, from calendars to endless room for documents, you can do mostly anything on Notion. And you can use it for your personal life, too — think of it like a digital assistant. You can create mood boards, various calendars, to-do lists, and more.
Turn your goals and habits into a fun immersive gaming experience. This habit-building app helps you track your goals while doleing out rewards for goals met, and treating any blocks like literal monsters to defeat. And you can do it with friends for an extra layer of accountability!
We’re so lucky to live in a world that values productivity while also recognizes how difficult it can be. Sometimes, a good app is all that you need to change your mindset and your habits.
