The To-Do list has become one of my Most Used Apps on a daily basis. A to-Do list is a kind of thing, where you write down your tasks that need to be done on the next day. This way, you start off your day with a proper plan. Likewise, you also save a lot of time doing tasks on time, and this also becomes a great cure for procrastination. Other To-Do List Benefits
- Tasks are done timely.
- Discipline is improved.
- Time Management.
- Gets you out of your comfort zone.
As I previously mentioned in another productive habit blog post, that waking up at 5 AM is key to success. When you Wake up at 5 AM, you are basically doing something out of your comfort zone. Likewise, habits like these help you become more disciplined. On the other hand, the app Alarmy allows you to set an alarm like any other alarm clock. However, it has some options, that are circle around waking up people.
For example, once your alarm starts, there will be some options like taking a photo, solving math problems, or scanning a QR code to get you out of the bed. There is no snooze button, and until and unless you finish the mission, the alarm is going nowhere. Personally, I have got a QR Code printed and hanged on the washroom. Therefore, when the alarm goes off I scan the QR Code and instantly wash my face with cold water.

- Helps you get on 5 AM Club Track by Robin Sharma.

Forest is a timeboxing app. If you don’t know what timeboxing is, well you can head over to my previous blog where I mentioned productive habits you can add in your daily routine. So what Forest App does is that it has a very sleek design that allows you to start various timers. The good thing about it that it does not allow you to quit your app, so you won’t be distracted by messenger or WhatsApp messages.
If you somehow did it, the timeboxing simply ends in the middle, and the tree you were planting during the process dies. It kind of hurts, so there is a bit of motivation gimmick to get you going with timeboxing. On the other hand, it also shows you how many minutes/trees you timeboxed during the day, week, and month. I’ve attached my stats below!
