7 Apps I use to be more productive as a graphic designerHey I’ve been using apps to boost my productivity for a while. For the past 3 years to be exact. This is the reason I’ve decided to share the ones that have broken into my daily routine and that will probably help you too. I know there are millions of apps that are supposed to increase your productivity and to be honest, I’ve tried a lot of them. After filtering if this app is useful enough, I have come to the 7 apps I cannot live without. I hope this saves you some time from researching everything! 7. Slack It’s not what you think! It’s actually not. I don’t use Slack to communicate with anyone. I am in some groups but that’s not the point. The point is that I use Slack to take quick notes. How? I make up new channels for each one of my projects and whenever I want to remember something related to a project I send it as a message. You’re probably wondering, why don’t you use some kind of fancy note-taking app, like Roam or Drafts. That’s because I find most note-taking apps cluttered, and not to the point, and others very simple for my liking. 6. Forest This one is pretty obvious. I think. Pomodoro is one of the few scientifically proven methods to be more productive. For those not familiar with Forest, it is basically a fancy timer. You can set a work timer and a break timer. I usually do 40 minutes of work with 5 minutes of break. This can help you feel like you have something to anticipate. You can say to yourself “It’s just 24 more minutes of work. That’s not that much” and continue to be productive. 5. Newsify Next on the list is Newsify. You may not know what Newsify is, so let me explain. Newsify is an RSS reader, it basically gathers all the articles and blog posts from people you follow and displays them to you. This helps me keep up with the blogs that I want to follow, without having to look up every single one. I used to use Feedly, but I prefer the interface of Newsify 100x times more. 4. Mist In short, Mist is a Chrome Extension that helps you practice mindfulness without fully detaching from your work. Every few hours, I will do a simple Body Scan Meditation, because I have found that I am more productive that way. I prefer Mist rather than all the other mindfulness apps because it is built into Google Chrome. I got access to it a couple of weeks ago because they currently have a waitlist, but it's a tool that I use every day. 3. Asana Asana is my one-stop project manager. I use it to do everything from tracking progress on projects to writing down deadlines. I discovered this software about 3 months ago and it has really changed y workflow. You can organize your projects in a calendar or tasks view, but I personally use the calendar for almost everything. It is very easy to plan out what you have to do on a day-to-day basis for every project. 2. Superhuman Superhuman is one of those apps where you don’t think it’s that useful at first, but you can’t live without it. Simply, it is a fancy email app. They claim to help you get through your emails in 2x the time, and I find that to be true. They also helped me declutter and organize my inbox which is a big thing if you take into account my 21.000 unread emails. Yes. 21.000. After all that, I am proud to announce that I’ve hit the fabled Inbox Zero. 1. Notion Have you ever googled anything related to productivity? Then you have probably come across Notion. Notion is an amazing note-taking app in which you can organize… your whole life. I use Notion to keep track of my Reading List. I write down every book I get recommended and when I have time, I listen to them on Audible. I also have my goals and weird trips I want to do in there. If I listed everything, this article would be a book, so let’s move on. You can use the app in every way you like, as it’s super customizable. Thanks for your time!

ABOUT ARETHA Aretha Brown is an Gumbaynggirr Artist, Activist and Youtuber who made headlines following her speeches at both the 2017 and 2018 Invasion Day Protests in Melbourne. In 2017 Aretha was elected the first female Prime Minister of the National Indigenous Youth Parliament. Browns first painting ”Time is on our Side, You Mob", was also in the 2019 Top Arts exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV). Her artwork and activism centres around her political status as a young Indigenous Australian, and her push for the teaching of black history to be mandatory within state schools. Aretha has since appeared in the new ABC TV documentary "Will Australia ever have a black Prime Minister?". She now operates her own independent Youtube channel - speaking about politics, culture and art in her own Australian context. This channel acknowledges and honours all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders whose land we are on. We recognise that this video is made on stolen land and that sovereignty has never been ceded. I also pay respect to my elders, past, present and future.
