Below are some of my favorite apps that help keep me happy, healthy, and productive. Take a look and if you have any “must have” apps of your own, I would appreciate if you let me know by visiting my contact me page or adding them to the comments section.
- Flux. (free) – this free app dims the brightness of your computer monitor once the sun sets in your area. This is great because bright blue lights late at night can jeopardize a good nights sleep. The app removes this problem and helps relieve eye strain.
- Pomodoro One. (free for Mac) – this app is helps you follow the Pomodoro technique, which is a cycle of 25-minute work sessions and 5-minute breaks designed to help you get more done.
- Menubar Countdown. (free for Mac) – this is a customizable countdown timer app. Use this so your computer can alert you when you should stand up. I recommend doing that every 30-60 minutes.
- Dual-N-Back – increases IQ, memory, and REM sleep
