Being productive is one of the best traits you can have, but knowing how to utilise your time effectively and efficiently is a great skill in itself. Whether you want to learn a new language, make the most of your workout, get a heads up in your career or simply travel better.
Here are a few apps to make you become a little more successful and pick up some some skills along the way…
Citymapper is one of the most user-friendly and intuitive travel apps around. It’s more than just getting from A to B, this handy app gives you options according to how you want to travel whether it be by bus, train, bicycle, walking or jetpack…
The handy receipts feature is a way to make you feel a little better about yourself, at it lets your know how many calories you burned or how many trees you saved from choosing more environmentally friendly modes of transport.
To put it simply, Wunderlist helps you plan anything and everything.
Getting that squad holiday booked or that ever mounting to-do list at work is made much simpler with Wunderlist. It allows you to set reminders and due dates making you much more organised! Now you have to do it…
Do you struggle to remember birthdays, or perhaps you and your partner’s anniversary? If you’re single you might be counting down the days until your group holiday. Perhaps you forget when payday is too… Countdown+ is one of the handiest apps around, much like Wunderlist, but works in a way that ‘counts down’ to any important events or anything you simply need reminding of that is coming up. Never forget your anniversary again!
Duolingo is the easiest and most friendly app around for approaching a new language. Best of all it’s 100% free, there are a whole range of languages available and makes learning fun. Will you be saying more than Bonjour madame when trying to navigate your round Paris with Citymapper? Next time…

Headspace is an app that provides guided meditation and mindfulness training. Simply spending 10 minutes on meditation per day could be the cure to a less stressed and much better you. I have a series on self-care which you may want to check out too. See here and here.
Need a 5 minute make up tutorial? Life advice? Exercise? Wanna follow a path to minimalism? YouTube is one of the best places to increase your productivity. There are SO many amazing vloggers and channels out there who are sharing their lives, tips and tricks for free.
Using specific hashtags or following people in a certain field/industry could be the key to a more productive you. Twitter is fantastic for online networking, building a relationship and making people aware that you are YOU.
