It’s fair to say that we all get wrapped up in our day to day lives, and as a result, many of us struggle to maintain a healthy balance between our work life and personal life. More often than not, it’s the little things that can knock you down and become a nuisance. You can get so wrapped up in work that you forget to hoover your home, you don’t make time to work out, or you don’t make time for yourself to relax. So how can we combat this? Technology!
One of the newest ways people are organising their life and managing their time is through apps and subscriptions. We all have chores and tasks to do, and sometimes we would benefit from a little assistance to keep us on track. From improving your work productivity, managing your errands to developing a better sleep schedule, there are many apps and subscriptions to help you stay on track. We have created a list of apps and subscriptions we think could help you stay on track, manage projects at work, or simply help you keep your home organised.
Working from home has become the norm for many of us, and with it comes a juggling act of responsibilities and time management. If you are someone that is late to a meeting because you were making an impromptu coffee, maybe you would benefit from an app that can keep you organised and on track?
Focus is a great app to help you manage your time, as it structures your day into 25-minute segments. Allowing for tasks and regular breaks. You can also use the app to help track tasks, form housework, and much more.

We all know that a good night’s rest and a consistent sleeping routine can positively affect your health and well-being, but for many of us, this can be a struggle. If you are someone that struggles to go to bed at a decent hour and wake up at a respectable hour, then hello and welcome to the club. Thankfully, there are great apps like Sleep Cycle that can help us develop a stable sleeping routine.
Sleep Cycle is an intelligent alarm clock that can help track your sleep patterns so you can learn more about your sleeping behaviour. How does it work? It’s simple. The App analyses your patterns to detect snoring, sleeping talking, and determining when you are entering and exiting sleep phases. You can set a timeframe for when you would like to be awake, and Sleep Cycle will use its intelligent features to wake you up in your lightest sleep phases – meaning you feel more awake, peaceful and less disrupted.

Reflectly defines itself as the world’s first intelligent journal that utilises Ai to cater questions, quotes, and thought-provoking questions to you. The more you engage with the app, the better it becomes. It is a fabulous way to journal, as it grows with you and tries to provide inspiration content and challenging questions to help you with your journaling experience.

In a world where Zoom meetings are the norm and our homes have become our office (or the sofa – we aren’t judging), we have 80 million accounts and passwords to remember.
