I recommend trying the ismart.life app. I use this application to plan my goals, tasks, projects. It is a very simple and free web application. You can see a demo and decide if it suits you or not ...
1) Thirty application for Android. These are challenges for 30 days (running on a break, taking a cold shower, going to bed on time, etc.). Every day (or you can once every few days, but at least once every 5 days), you mark the day in green (if the task is done) or red (if not done). It would seem a trifle, but when you see that you have an even strip of green dots, you don't want to spoil it with red. You can either choose ready-made tasks or create your own. In addition, there you can subscribe to other people who also set goals for themselves and fulfill them. 2) Mi fit, which works with the mi band bracelet Counts steps, calculates the number of calories burned, shows sleep phases and reports how many people you walked for that day by the number of steps. When I just bought a bracelet (half a year ago), I barely managed 8000 steps, now I manage to find an average of 11-12 thousand steps a day at work. When you know your level of activity for sure, and not "well, I seem to be tired, so I walked a lot," it is easier to increase this level. Sends data to Google fit, in which they are also analyzed and sent to the next on the list 3) MyFitnessPal Calculates the amount eaten per day (you can enter it manually or you can scan the food barcode if you eat purchased food), compares with the number of calories burned (which is taken from Google Fit, in which they appeared from Mi Fit :)) and tells how much more you can eat in order not to get fat (or lose weight, there you can choose a goal). Shows how much protein, fat and carbohydrates you ate and how much you need to reach the goal. I use it for 10 days, until I am not tired of weighing and scanning food))) 4) Water time The application helps to keep track of how much water you use. The problem "does coffee / tea / juice count as water?" there it is solved very well: if you drink coffee often, then it counts it as + (though 10 times less than if it were water), if rarely - then "-". It reminds you that you haven't drunk water for a long time (you can edit and disable it in the settings). Well, he also has a very cute label on his desk - a drop of water that smiles when you drink enough, sad when not enough, and so several different emotions. I downloaded it only because of its cute face, it turned out to be a good application)))
These applications can hardly be called "efficiency-enhancing" in a general sense, but they greatly improve efficiency in terms of health tracking)
The Moment application (iOS) helps me a lot - it records the time of smartphone use every day, and when the daily limit is exceeded (which the user sets himself), it does not allow normal use further. This is a convenient and unobtrusive safety device against sticking into the device.
Removing social media applications and disabling push notifications in instant messengers helped just as well.
In general, the smartphone and LTE have significantly increased my personal efficiency, now I can work almost anywhere in the city. It's incredibly convenient and productive, making time management much easier. The main thing is not to stick.
A very cool application "Forest", it helps not to phony and not be distracted from business on social networks, etc. The bottom line is that a timer is set, as in pomodrone, -15 minutes, half an hour, an hour, and while the clock is ticking, a tree grows on the screen. You cannot close the application, otherwise the timer will be reset and the tree will dry up :) by the end of the day, if you stick to the goal, you can grow a small forest. A funny thing, there is a kind of excitement due to this game form. Of course, you can be distracted by the computer, but this is already a question of conscience. In general, it works well and quite helps)
Today, applications are very popular that require users to act in a real offline space. The same Pokemon Go (iOS / Android) based on augmented reality has become a real revolution in the field of mobile applications precisely for the reason that to "go to the next level" you had to decently run and look for Pokemon in the parks. squares, shopping centers and offices.
Apps that help you achieve personal goals, solve problems and increase personal effectiveness are in abundance today. From endless "counting rhymes", where you can track expenses and plan purchases, to applications like Habitica (iOS / Android). Usually, the design and usability of these services are extremely simple, but it is precisely to move to a higher status that you need to perform serious actions in reality - solve problems, complete tasks, close KPIs. The form of play makes problem solving interesting and helps to increase motivation.
In the future, people will be even more dependent on applications. In my opinion, the most promising are applications that help to monitor health and physical activity. Today many people use wearable gadgets: bracelets, watches, abnytc trackers. People seriously monitor how many steps they walked during the day, how many liters of water they drank, what pulse and pressure were on one day or another. Even a fitness trainer can control your progress to a certain extent if they access the app. The most useful for me personally: WaterBalance (iOS / Android) and FatSecret (iOS / Android).
Perhaps the main drawback of all applications is that that you need to constantly enter information into them. However, if you start to monitor your health seriously and constantly see a changing weight curve on the phone monitor, the motivation to enter the info into the phone again immediately appears. In addition, in a very short time you get used to entering all the information into your mobile once a day, and in the long run you realize that you have developed a eating habit. I think this is what services are created for, in fact, because a habit appears in 21 days.
