We all hear this excuse everyday… “I am so busy.” Yes! We all are, especially at a PR agency, and balancing our social and work life sometimes feels like mission impossible. When you spend eight-plus hours at work and then go home and have to cook dinner, prepare for breakfast and lunch the next day, do laundry, clean your apartment, walk your dog – life can get fairly exhausting. One solution that has helped me regain some clarity and open my days and nights is utilizing apps.
Apps have completely changed the way I operate and how my life functions while I spend my weekdays working at a lifestyle PR agency. I’m not just talking about taking a Lyft ride here and there, or ordering from DoorDash after a night out, but streamlining household work that should be completed consistently. With so many apps available, it’s fun to explore and figure out, “what is right for my lifestyle,” and “how can modern technology help me function as a working adult.”
The below are my suggestions for maximizing your time and getting through a day efficiently and effectively. By the time you have these downloaded and scheduled, you will probably be lounging with friends at some new bar downtown. You will thank me later.
