Happy Monday loves! I cannot believe Thanksgiving is this week. I feel like I skipped a few weeks of the pre-holiday excitement. Life can get busy this time of the year. Last weekend, though, I took a break to go roller-skating with family, which finally turned it around for me. Happy endorphins and family time was what I needed! This week I hope to keep that positive attitude and plan working on my Christmas list and gift ideas. I found that there are quite a few apps for the holidays that can help me organize my holiday plans and gifts while keeping a happy and healthy state of mind. Two of my favorites are Santa’s Bag and Breathing app.
1. Santa’s Bag – Christmas Gift List. I consider myself very lucky that I have a long list of people I want to get gifts for: family, friends, teachers, coworkers! But staying within a budget is tough, especially since buying ‘one for her one for me’ is seriously tempting. The Santa’s Bag app is perfectly organized and allows me to sort things by stores or recipients, just the way I like it! But the best part is that it lists how much money I spent on each item and adds it up for me. A great reality check, yikes!
2. Breathe App (for iOS) / Stop Breathe & Think (for Android). Okay, don’t laugh. Even though I have always known how beneficial and calming breathing exercise can be, I always dismissed this app as silly… until I got an Apple Watch for my birthday from my awesome men. This app specifically would annoy me at first, but once I gave it a try, I loved it. I mean, being an overworked stress ball like me, this app is golden especially during such hectic holiday season.
Do you use any apps to help you get through the holidays? Please share!
