People go on and on about how modern technology is slowly sapping the life out of our souls on an almost daily basis. In some ways, that’s true, technology can be huge time wasters and severely disrupt one’s productivity. However, the reverse is also true. Technology can also provide us with tools that can make our lives infinitely easier for us. Here are some of the best productivity tools that can help you hack your way through life.

Habitica (habitica.com)

Tired of boring old task lists and to-do apps? Then try Habitica. This app works on the premise that gamification (i.e. applying elements of video gaming such as rewards, experience points, etc., to daily activities) can make it easier for people to stay productive. Most to-do apps don’t have any incentive for people to finish their to-dos. However, Habitica rewards users with experience points to level up their characters, items to buy with virtual gold, pets, and quests. It turns the dreary grind of task lists into a fun way that keeps you entertained- and productive- for hours.

Last Pass (lastpass.com)

Having a password manager is necessary for this age of data breaches and identity theft, and Last Pass is the best of the bunch. Last Pass is a very robust password manager that can store your usernames and passwords, so you won’t have to repeat any password on any site whatsoever. You only need to remember one master password and that’s it. The best thing of all is that the app works on a variety of devices, so that data that you’ve saved on one device (like your smartphone) can be easily accessed on another (your PC or another phone).

My Fitness Pal (myfitnesspal.com)

Losing weight and staying healthy doesn’t have to be expensive. My Fitness Pal is an app that can help you take control of your weight loss and diet goals in one easy-to-use platform. Users can log their food and water intake, track their macros, log physical activities so that they have an accurate picture of where they are in their weight loss journey. The app also has a very active and helpful community that is willing to give support and share diet plans/tips and tricks with new users.

Toggl (toggl.com)

Research has shown that people who have more awareness of how they spend their time tend to be more productive than people who don’t. If you don’t know how long you’re spending on particular areas of your day, then use Toggl. It’s basically a timecard for your life. Here you can log the hours that you spend on your computer (including the specific tasks that you’re working on), as well as your leisure and non-productive times. At the end of the week, you can compile all of this data into one handy report so that you can see what you’re spending the most time on.

Evernote (evernote.com)

Evernote has been around for ages, and there’s a good reason why: It’s probably the best note-taking app out on the market today. You can take notes anywhere on any device and easily share them with friends if you want to. You can take pictures and audio files and easily integrate them with your notes. You can also save webpages, put them inside a dedicated Evernote notebook and read them later. It’s basically a notebook app on steroids.
