Celebrating Life with my Favourite Apps
When it comes to technology, I’m a minimalist.
The only criteria for the applications mentioned here is that they are used on an almost daily basis, and all bring a little extra beauty and ease to my life.
If you are on my mailing list you might have received a copy of Gratitude 365, late last year as a Thank-You gift.
This app is an attractive and streamlined method for keeping a gratitude journal.
It’s perfect if you looking for a gratitude practice that’s simple to implement. It also has the added bonus of being able to upload a photo for each day.
There’s no denying the benefits of staying focused on the positives in our daily lives.
Having used this consistently for around five months now, I’ve found Gratitude 365, a powerful means for cultivating feelings of abundance.
I’ve lost track of the number of friends and clients that I have hooked up to Headspace!
I should be getting some kind of commission (but alas, this is not a sponsored post).
Headspace is commonly known as the ‘meditation app for modern living’.
I’ve been meditating regularly for the past two years, so by no means an expert, but I think this app is incredibly exciting.
It not only includes daily meditations (365 if you sign up for the whole year) but some really useful motivational tools and ways for demystifying the process of meditation and mindfulness.
The best news is that if you want to try it, you can sign up for a 10 day-10 minute programme for free.
This is the App I wish I had created (did I tell you I am creating an App for personal development lovers? Well I am – watch this space!)
Bloom by Mindbloom is the most aesthetically appealing multimedia app I have ever come across.
In essence, Blooms are intentional reminders sent to you every day combining your favourite music and photos in a slideshow.
You might create a reminder to call a friend, drink some water or read your chosen quote and you can share your blooms with friends and family.
I dont really think I can do this app justice (it’s exquisite!), so if you are interested in learning more, I encourage you to read this review by Valerie Lauer
I’m a latecomer to using Satori. It’s a web based app, created by an online buddy of mine – Lachlan Cotter and at first glance, with all it’s promises – I felt a little intimidated!
I wish I had started using it earlier as it truly delivers. Satori is one of the sleekest management tools available for life coaches, healers, therapists – anyone who runs a small business with one on one clients.
It is way more than a scheduling App – it will incorporate your personal branding, set up appointments, keep client notes and contracts, schedule reminders, take payments and create invoices.
Dropbox has been around for a while. I’ve had it on my Mac for ages, but only recently downloaded it to my iPhone.
Dropbox provides a free service which you can use to store files and access anywhere you are connected to the grid.
It’s great for sharing large files such as MP3′s or PDF’s that can be accessed, even if the other person does not have their own dropbox account.
I use mine as an additional place to store photos, movies and send a weekly backup of my wordpress site and database (which I have automated with with a simple plug-in).
