As March is the month to spring clean, most people will be having a spring clean of their homes. But spring is also the perfect time to clean up your life. Or at least to admit to yourself that you might want to commit once again to those New Year’s resolutions you failed halfway through January, right? After all, summer is coming…
Here at Helpling, we want to help you spring clean both your home and yourself. So we’ve found some apps to help you declutter your life and put the spring back in your step.
This virtual to-do list will help sort your life out. Wunderlist will help you plan anything. Whether it’s creating a shopping list or planning your summer holiday, this app will get you organised like you’ve never been before. You can also manage the tasks from any of your devices, so you can manage your life on-the-go. Share lists with friends, family, or colleagues so they can do their fair share of organising, too. Or so they can help keep you on track. Peer pressure at a distance.
2. My Fitness Pal
My Fitness Pal has been around for some time now. For those of you not familiar with it, it’s a handy app where you can keep track of all the calories you’re consuming and all the great exercise you’re doing to burn them off (because you are doing exercise, right?!). Nothing gets you on track for that summer body quite like seeing the number of calories in that Snickers displayed in its full glory on your phone screen. This app can actually be a lot of fun, if you have a little more self-control than I did and don’t go over your daily allowance of calories by lunch time!
Headspace wants to look after your mind’s health, and this is exactly what the app offers. Spend 10 minutes a day on it to help bring some focus and clarity back into your life. This app will help you forget about the things that are worrying you (like the number of calories in the aforementioned Snickers) and will help you stress less, sleep better, and love more.
Now that you’ve got your life spruced up and organised, it’s time to do the same for your home. After all, the place you spend so much of your time deserves a spring clean too, right? But there’s no need to invest so much of your precious time doing this – you’ve got things to organise and that Snickers to burn off! The Helpling app connects you with an insured, local cleaner to take care of the dirty work for you. So both your life and your home will be in shape in no time. Download it here for Android or iOS.
