If you think 24 hours a day is too less, then remember that Einstein too had only 24 hours a day. The answer to that riddle is time management. Although it’s called time management, the absurd thing about that phrase is that you can’t actually manage time, but what you can do is manage yourself. The most effective way to manage your time better is to organise, prioritise, and schedule. Thanks to technology, this task is now easier. Here are 3 apps to help you manage time better.
1. Alarmy (Sleep if you can)- Alarm
Let’s start with waking up – it’s usually where most of us waste a lot of time. This app is as threatening as its name. To use the app, you need to first take a photograph of some place or thing which acts as trigger to turn the alarm off in the morning. For example: if your chosen photograph is of your bathroom, to turn off your alarm you need to take a photograph of your bathroom using the app. This alarm app makes sure that it gets you out of bed, although the trick is to use a photograph of some place/thing that is away from your bed. The application is available for Apple and Android users.
2. Remember the milk
Begin your day with a plan. Set aside 30 minutes each day to plan your day. Make a list of things you need to get done for that day.
