5 Tech Solutions for Work-Life Balance as a Professional

2 min read

Being a professional doesn’t mean that you have to marry to your work. After all, work is only part of your life. Thanks to technology, there are apps that can help you achieve work-life balance.

Pocket Yoga

Many professionals are so busy that they don’t have time to go to the gym, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t get some exercises into your daily life. The Pocket Yoga app lets you squeeze in a yoga session wherever you are. With the Pocket Yoga app, you can practice according to the amount of time you have. The app offers voice instructions that guide you through the practice, so it’s like having your yoga instructor in your pocket. Pocket Yoga is available for Mac OS, iOS and Android. You don’t even need an internet connection to use this app.

Cozi Family Organizer

When you have a business and a family to run, sometimes it is hard to keep track of things. Cozi Family Organizer lets you create a shared calendar, a shopping list, and a to-do list that each member of your Cozi circle can access. For example, when you add your kid’s soccer practice to the app, you can designate the task to whichever family member is responsible for driving your kid to practice. Since the information is synced across all devices, everyone is on the same page. You can even sync it with Google Calendar. This app is available for iOS and Android devices.

Way of Life

One of the reasons professionals have a hard time achieving work-life balance is their habits. For example, they may focus on their work so much that they neglect the need for proper sleep. One way to develop good habits or break bad habits is to keep track of your progress. The Way of Life app allows you to set up goals and track whether you meet these goals or not. To remind you of these goals, you can set up reminders to nudge yourself throughout the day. The Way of Life app is available for both iOS and Android.

Splashtop Remote Desktop

If you feel that you’re tied to your desk, the Splashtop Remote Desktop app may just be what you need. It is available for Mac OS, Windows, iOS, and Android. With this app, you can access your computer remotely. You can run all the apps on your computer just like you’re sitting at your desk. For example, you can use your tablet to access your office computer and get some work done in the evening while you’re vacationing with your family.

Week Plan

If you can plan your time better, you’ll find it easier to achieve work-life balance. The Week Plan app lets you plan your week so that you can fit in things that matter to you. This app is available for iOS only. For example, if you plan to hit the gym before you head into the office three times a week, you can schedule your workout times in Week Plan. The app then sends you reminders to help you stick to your plan. Don’t lose yourself in your work. Let these apps help you take care of yourself physically and mentally.
