Excessive phone usage is commonly seen as a bad thing, but the use of a few good apps can help optimize your experience. Here are a few apps that can make everyday life easier and can benefit you overall!
1—Meditation. This app is so perfect for managing stress. I love to take even five minutes out of every day to participate in this guided meditation. It’s perfect for those just getting into meditation, and it will truly help you lead a more organized and productive lifestyle simply by helping you refocus on goals and de-stress.
2—MyFitnessPal. For anyone trying to eat cleaner or focus on fitness, this app is perfect. Using the barcode on just about any type of food you can quickly read about its nutrients. You can also use it to log your food intake on the daily basis. This app will give you tips on leading a healthier lifestyle and is so important for anyone trying to be more conscious of what they’re putting in their body.
3—Poshmark. This app has come in handy so many times when I was struggling with money. All my fellow college students know that if there is an app that you can help you make money then it’s a no brainer—you need to download it. Poshmark is perfect for selling all those clothes that have been sitting in the back of your closet. Even if it’s not your style anymore, there could be someone out there who would love to get their hands on it. Poshmark is also perfect for anyone looking to buy clothes and accessories at a more reasonable price. There are plenty of designer clothes on the app at as much as half off the original price!
4—News app. I truly believe that having a news app on your phone is the most important thing to have these days. Nothing is more valuable than staying informed and forming your own opinions. Whether it’s The New York Times, The Washington Post, or BBC News, make sure you turn on your notifications for any important events or situations going on in the world.
5—Airbnb. This app is so key for anyone planning on travel. Not only are prices lower than hotels and motels, the quality of the stay is much more impressive. I plan on using it religiously while traveling in Europe for my study abroad trip.
I plan on continuing to use these apps for the rest of my life—they feel like little cheats to make life easier, and they’re fun!
