It can be hard to be productive at work. There are so many distractions, from coworkers who want to chat to the enticing lure of social media and Netflix. But being productive doesn’t mean you have to feel like a monk. In fact, it sometimes helps if you feel like you’re having fun too! To help make your daily routine more efficient, we’ve put together this list of our favourite apps for productivity:
How to stay sane in a busy coworking space
Here are some tips for staying sane in a busy coworking space:
- Focus on your own work, and don’t get distracted by other people’s conversations. If you’re easily distracted by noise, try wearing noise-canceling headphones or earbuds.
- Keep on top of your email (and other digital notifications) so that you don’t have to keep checking them throughout the day. This will also help protect you from missing something important while focusing on a task.
- Establish personal boundaries. If there are one or two people who tend to talk loudly around you all day long, then establish personal boundaries with those individuals; let them know when they’re distracting you and ask them if they could lower their voices when talking with others around you.
Planning an event? These apps will make you look like a pro.
Planning an event? These apps will make you look like a pro.
Eventbrite is a great way to plan and manage events. It’s easy to use, has a lot of features that make planning events much easier, and it’s also free to use. If you have any experience at all with social media or event planning software it probably won’t take long for you to figure out how this app works. You can create multiple event pages from the same account, which is useful if you’re doing more than one thing at once (or if one thing overlaps into another).
You can set up ticket sales by using Eventbrite’s built-in payment features or integrate them with other services like PayPal or Square up to accept payments directly on your site without having people leave their computers behind while they’re pledging donations or buying tickets at the door.
Where can I find local meetups?
Meetup.com has the largest database of local meetups, so it’s a good place to start your search for people who are interested in what you’re working on. Look for meetups that are active and have regular attendance (ideally at least one or two events per month).
You can also find local events by searching on meetup.com itself, but if you’re interested in something specific that isn’t already listed there, try Googling “site:meetup.com” followed by the term(s) related to your interest—for example:
- site:www.meetup.com web development
- site:www.meetup.com entrepreneurship
How to be more productive in your coworking space with your phone
- Set a timer for social media.
- Use the Pomodoro technique to stay focused on a task.
- Use white noise apps and earbuds to drown out distractions.
- Download an app that helps you meditate while you work, like Headspace or Calm (they’re both free).
What are the best apps to help you save money when traveling?
There are a few apps that can help you save money on your travels.
HotelTonight is an app that allows you to book discounted hotel rooms at last-minute rates. When I was in London, this is the app I used to find a great deal on my accommodation. You can also use it if you’re looking for something more luxurious than a hostel or Airbnb accommodation would provide. Even though it’s not as cheap as other apps, the quality of the hotels on offer make it worth using this one over its competitors. Plus, there are plenty of locations where you won’t have any trouble getting an instant booking with some flexibility built into the price range!
- GasBuddy (US) / PetrolPrices (Australia) / FuelMyGadget (UK)
If you’re traveling by car or motorbike and need to fill up on fuel along your journey, these apps will show which gas stations around town have lower prices than others so that when it comes time for refills throughout your trip (which inevitably happens), then they’ll be able to help keep costs down! They all do slightly different things too so try them all out before deciding which one works best for how much money needs saved most often while driving around town too quickly 🙂
How to stay connected without being glued to your phone
- Use apps that let you make calls, send messages, and use other features without having to look at your phone or take it out of your pocket.
- If there’s an app that lets you do what you need to do without looking at a screen, use it!
- The key here is finding the right tools for staying in touch with people when they need you—and only then.
Best apps for creating and editing videos on the go
- Adobe Premiere Rush
Adobe’s latest video editor is made for mobile editing, making it easy to create professional-looking videos on the go. With a wide range of features and powerful tools, the app allows you to create compelling videos without having to pay for a subscription.
If you’re looking for an easy way to make a quick video without all the bells and whistles of other apps, this one from Apple is perfect. It lets you easily edit together clips, add text or sound effects (like music), and share your finished product with friends on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Since it’s free in the App Store, there’s no reason not to give it a try!
Here are some of our favourite productivity apps we find ourselves using again and again
We’ve gathered together a list of productivity tools, apps and services that we think are just great. Some of them are free, some cost money, but all of them can help you to be more productive when working at home or in an office.
Todoist is a super-simple task management app that helps you keep track of what’s important and what needs doing next.
Evernote is one of the most popular note-taking tools out there—and for good reason: it allows you to save notes and documents in one place so that they’re always accessible on any device (desktop or mobile). And if you have any other devices running Dropbox installed, then files saved in Evernote automatically sync across all connected devices without any extra effort required!
Dropbox gives users 2 GB for free—more than enough space to copy over large files from home onto your computer at work when needed (or vice versa), but if this isn’t enough storage space then there are paid plans available ranging from 50 GB ($9/month) up through 1 TB ($60/month).
So there you have it! Five ways to stay productive at work. We hope this post has helped give you some ideas for your own productivity journeys. If you’re looking for more tips, don’t hesitate to reach out on Twitter and tell us about your favourite apps. We love hearing from our readers!
