These Apps Will Make Your Busy Life Calmer

These are all free by the way

Work, relationships and personal health (not to mention, the little errands in between) — each area of our life has its own schedule that we need to manage. And sometimes, it's just hard to keep up when life gets too busy. In hopes of helping you handle the everyday hustle and bustle, we've rounded up some apps that can make your busy life calmer. We know your time is important, so enough with the chit-chat and let's get right to it. 


Google Keep


Download the app on Google Play or iTunes.


Apple and Android both have their own default pieces of software that can serve as your reminder, note and calendar apps. But Google Keep takes it to another level by letting you merge and organize your thoughts, things to do and schedules in just one app, and in any format that you want. Don't forget that you can sync this app too with your desktop device! Wonderful, right?


Life Budget


Download the app on Google Play or iTunes.


When we're busy, we tend to neglect monitoring our expenses. This can lead us to overestimate our budget, and more often than not, we end up spending more than we intend to. Understandably, it can be quite tedious to manually write down the details of every single transaction that we have. But since we always have our phone with us, it can be easier for us to monitor our expenditure by downloading a budget app like Life Budget. It's very easy and convenient to use; you just need to tap the plus button to record your expense and see if you're still within your personal budget. You can also categorize what kind of expense you've had, so you can identify which services or items you spend the most money on.


Headspace


Download the app on Google Play or iTunes.


In the midst of the hustle, we need to take a breath and relax for a moment. But when you're already in a state of panic and anxiousness, how do you start calming down? The key is to practice meditation to help you prepare to be more mindful and calm in future situations. The Headspace app lets you start with a 10-day basic program and then you progress from there. Taking control of your emotions and impulses requires conscious effort and consistent practicing, so start today!


Period Calendar


Download the app on Google Play or iTunes.


As ladies who lead busy lives, the last thing that we'd want is to be unprepared for our period. We're all too familiar with what happens when we don't anticipate our monthly thing. We may have to stop what we're doing to frantically look for a pad or tampon, or we may have to go home to change our clothes. Aside from that, tracking your period can help you plan events accordingly, like when to schedule your beach trip. The Period Calendar is very useful in tracking your cycle, and it even stores data from up to a year ago so you could monitor any changes in the interval. This is also helpful if you're trying to conceive as it notifies you which days you're most fertile. It's like a period report card!


AlarmMon


Download the app on Google Play or iTunes.


If you're a serial snoozer, you'll find this to be app to be very helpful and fun. Unlike other alarm apps, this app can't be turned off if you haven't solved the puzzles it features. Don't worry, it's not advanced mathematics or sudoku, it's just simple games that will help your brain wake up. The alarm itself is not the boring buzz; you can choose from a variety of funky tunes or even opt to have the voice of your favourite K-pop star wake you up. Now, waking up on time and getting things done early has never been so easy.
