As much as people love the holidays, we all know it is one of the busiest months around. It’s even busier if you’re someone who has a lot on their plate as it is. From running a business, to hitting tight deadlines, people are always looking for ways to save time. That need is even higher around the Holidays.
Fortunately, there are many in that boat and several of them found some ways to “hack” their time around this time. It’s all thanks to specific apps that they use.
Food: DoorDash, FreshDirect
You know sometimes you need to catch up with work or you’re just so busy you can’t make it to dinner. We’ve been there before. Of course, you need to eat, but that’s where there is an app that can help you. Consider apps like Uber Eats or DoorDash. These are specifically restaurant delivery services where drivers pick up your order and drive to your location. It’s nice and convenient and you can focus right back on work.
But what about planning out that big holiday meal? If you’ve figured out what you want, you can use apps like FreshDirect or Instacart. These apps connect you with a personal shopper in a US grocery store in your area. You pick what you want from the app and the shopper will get it for you.
It’s almost Christmas, and that means finding gifts for family and friends. It’s normally an area of stress for most, but not when Gifster is on your side. Gifster is an app that’ll allow you to make detailed shopping lists. Through them, you can place all your gift ideas and even links to online stores. You can even put in prices and there is a checklist system, too. You can even share these lists with other people so others can add their gift ideas or know what you plan to get for others.
Another big theme for the holidays can be traveling. There are some great booking apps like Hopper or Kayak. However, they don’t exactly cover another big sore spot with traveling: packing. That’s where PackPoint comes in. All you have to do is tell the app where you’re going and what you plan to do there. From there, the app will automatically make a list of everything you need to pack. Going to a nice restaurant? The app will suggest a nice dress for ladies and a suit for men.
De-stress: Headspace, 8fit
Finally is a way to de-stress. While all of these apps can help you save time and relieve a lot of stress, that doesn’t mean the holidays are stress-free. You’re still going to need breaks and opportunities to relax. That’s where destress apps can come in handy. Apps like headspace or 8fit are great for that.
Headspace is a simple app that guides people through 10-minute meditations. There’s even a bedtime aspect where the app will emit bedtime sounds, inducing sleep.
For those wanting to sweat the stress away, you can find apps like 8fit which give you short 10 -minute exercises to get your heart going. You can do them at home as well.
The holidays are a stressful and time-consuming period. However, with these apps, you can add some organization to your life that can do you a lot of good.
