These 6 Free Apps will Help you Maintain a Work-life Balance
We live in an era where our work takes a larger fraction of our attention. It is often difficult to track our priorities, and our desire to thrive and succeed in our career makes us forget that there’s life outside work.
There’s a need to create a work-life balance as this is the first step to being more productive, wholly, in every aspect of our lives. A life that lacks work-life balance will experience stress and constant burn-outs.
Though gadgets can be quite distracting, they can also be efficient in helping us create a well-balanced life. Thanks to technology, these free apps will make work-life balance a reality and not just something you wish to have:

This is the app that’ll help you prioritise and achieve those goals you write on paper every day, and stick to the walls only to later forget them. It will remind you, keep you on track and also monitor your progress to encourage you. You’ll see yourself smashing those goals with Strides.
