Apps and Books That Help With Work-Life Balance

Cozi

A promising app for families that comes with a color-coded calendar, recipe box, to-do lists, shopping lists, and more. You only need one account since the Cozi Family Organizer can be shared with the entire family. It includes some fine free features such as a super easy-to-use calendar where you can edit/add appointments, share grocery lists, set reminders, share to-do lists, etc. It provides accessing all this from anywhere and of course, ease of searching (which means you don’t have to turn your fancy bag upside-down to find your grocery list and embarrass yourself at the supermarket). Yay!

 

Timetune for Android or ATracker for iOS

These brilliant apps help you convert calendar entries and track work, activities, work and more into beautiful reports in bar and pie formats. They assist you by creating different graphs for different time periods and tasks to help you understand your time-saving analysis.

Need to calm down? Use any audio exercise out of twenty-five that includes muscle relaxation, deep breathing, and more. Rate your feelings and moods during the day and also add specific notes to notice patterns that will help you improve over time.
