Work, School, Chores and Appointment: Tips, Tricks and Tech to Tame Your Morning Madness
Let’s face it. Sometimes, just getting out of the house in the morning can be a seemingly endless chore, with the kids running around and you trying to get all of your things together. It’s a necessary hassle that many people need help with.
Staying organized is a great way to make your mornings more stress free. The good news is that there are plenty of apps for your phone and other devices that can help you get on track from the moment you wake up. Here are some of the most useful apps out there.
Wake Up Refreshed
If you like the idea of being gently awoken by the aroma of a stimulating fragrance and the chance to change the mood with lighting at the same time, you might want to look at an aroma diffuser with mood lighting.
There are loads of different models and features to choose from. The Maxnic 300ML is just one example, but it highlights how you can combine the perceived benefits of aromatherapy together with light-therapy.
Look for a model that has an auto-timer feature and auto shut-off feature, so that you can drift away into a relaxing sleep, knowing that the machine will switch itself off in up to six hours’ time, allowing you to and wake up feeling refreshed.
A Weather App That Works
Knowing what the day holds in store for you can help you plan your day better, so knowing the weather forecast is a great help. This weather app from Apalon Apps for Android has everything you need to plan your day.
The app displays all of the important information you need, such as current temperature and conditions, as well as an hourly and seven-day forecast to help you plan even better. It also has wind conditions, sunrise and sunset and more to give you-up-to-the-minute updates.
Stay on Schedule
If you don’t use a scheduling calendar, then you need to start immediately, especially if you find your mornings are hectic because you can’t remember what you have to do that day.
aCalendar is a great app that lets you color-coordinate different types of scheduling on each day, giving you a bird’s-eye view of what you can expect. You can also set alarms and reminders that will keep you on track all day long.
Stay Ahead of Traffic
Are your days more stressful because you always find yourself in traffic jams? The Waze app can help you avoid traffic problems and stay on schedule.
This app uses real-time updates from other users to notify you of traffic jams, construction zones, accidents and other things that can tie up your morning commute. It can also help you find the cheapest gas on your route in order to save money. Users can even edit the maps if approved to do so, which can reflect up-to-date changes in roads in many different neighborhoods across the country.
Don’t let a hectic morning routine derail your day. Get organized and try these apps today.
