How I take care of business and boost my mental health
Iam disorganized. I am lazy. I am low on energy. I am all these things; but, I am aware of these things, and unlike many with the same traits, I put effort towards battling these weaknesses.
Last month I wrote about how I combat a lack of action, and today I wanted to tackle specific tools I use to boost my work, productivity, and help me feel better about myself.
The free editor more than anything helps “dumb down” my writing. I found that some of the complex topics I was writing about on this site were at a college level, and that doesn’t lead to clicks. Hemingway helps me reach that sweet spot of writing at a 5th to 7th-grade level.
I don’t even know how to pronounce the name of this company but I love it. Cyfe helps curb all the different platforms you use for your business and helps organize your tools into a single place. This platform links together some of the most popular software on the market like PayPal, MailChimp, Basecamp, Stripe, and many other services to get a clear understanding of your work.
The Godfather of email marketing software, MailChimp is the leading email marketing platform. The main reason to me is that they provide a free plan for up to 2,000 email addresses. You can upgrade to paid subscriptions, but they have a free platform with a lot of great tools. I would argue it helps build customer relations making upgrading to the paid services easier.
RescueTime helps people track their time on sites like Facebook, Buzzfeed, and Reddit and then can block the sites for a time or gives you a friendly reminder to take a break from the website. The software has an intelligent algorithm that I guarantee will get you to be more productive.
Those are four tools I’m using daily that help me stay organized, reduces stress, and boosts my mood. I also wrote about five things I do to keep my sanity which I also highly recommend.
Any tools you use in your work? I’d love to hear from you! Please leave a response!
