TRY SOMETHING NEW

Nurture good habits this Eid

These apps will guide you every step of the way.

When one door closes, another one opens. After a long month of fasting and reflection during Ramadan, Eid is a great opportunity to begin your personal journey to an improved you.

Now’s the time to start good habits, and these apps will help you along the way.

Keep your focus

Ding! Someone liked your post. Ding! Mum sent a message. Ding!

According to a University of California Irvine study, it takes 23 minutes on average to concentrate on your task again after a small distraction. 

Try turning off your notifications temporarily with your device’s Do Not Disturb mode, then use a to-do app to list your tasks and gamify your approach to getting things done. 

A pomodoro timer will help you switch between periods of focus and short breaks – soon you’ll start to achieve more during your day in fewer hours and with less effort.

Be more selective

When it comes to overloading, nothing beats lots of extra cheese on your post-Ramadan pizza 🍕

What’s less fun, is the overload of unfiltered information on social media. The good thing is that #JOMO, the “Joy of Missing Out”, is totally in style now. 

Use these apps to slow down, be more selective about what to consume and where, and get your daily input in small bites.
