High school and college are periods of ever-expanding responsibility for students. When you were younger you might have had mom and dad’s help to get you up in the morning, tell you where you need to be when, check to make sure you did your homework, and help you budget your money. But now that’s all on you! Luckily, there are apps to help you get organized. You can get help making a schedule and a budget, take better notes, organize a big project, and stay safe. Check out these apps to get a head-start on being on top of your life!
App #1: SelfControl
Imagine you are studying, you sit at your desk and start to create a mind map to organize your ideas. When you’ve just created your first node on your Mind Map, you get a notification on Facebook. It’s almost impossible to ignore! So you check it out and waste another few minutes instead of studying!
To avoid distractions like this, SelfControl allows you to block certain websites for a set amount of time. This enables you to concentrate fully on your studies and avoid sporadically checking social networks or your email. Best of all is that once you put these blocks in place, it’s impossible for you to access them until the time you’ve previously specified runs out. You can’t just flick a switch and check them. Even if you get desperate and delete the application, you won’t be able to access them before the time you specified. Happy studying!
App#2: Maths Alarm Clock
Maths Alarm Clock is another tool for self-control. This time, however, for your dreams! If you are a student who suffers from continuously hitting the snooze button in the morning, then this is the app for you. Maths Alarm Clock makes you solve a simple math problem in order to turn your alarm off.
The benefits of this are twofold:
- No more snoozing and being late for class
- Having to solve a math problem in the morning gets your brain working quicker. This puts you in a better position when it comes to learning throughout the day
App #3: Sleep If U Can
If mathematical problems are not enough to get you out of bed, we bring you an even more extreme solution. With Sleep If U Can, you’ll have to get out of bed and take a picture of your sink (or any other area you define) to turn off the alarm!
