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.
Live in the moment
Sometimes a good clear-out is really cathartic, so consider rearranging your living space and selling unwanted items through reseller apps. A clearer space goes a long way towards a clearer mind; now start thinking about leaving your worries behind and learn how to live in the moment with some of our favourite meditation apps.
Open up to new opportunities
Eid is always a good moment to rethink and reshape your approach to work. Open yourself up to new opportunities, not just in your region but across the globe. And if you’ve got any extra time, use it wisely to expand your network and sharpen your skill set.
