Ok, so the app won’t actually get your tasks done for you, but this app can make it easier for you to do what you’ve wanted to do for a long time. Let’s say you have wanted to get back into your exercise routine but have not been able to commit. You might be staring at that credit card bill and thinking “I need to shop smarter.” Whatever the case, the app you need is LazyHabit.
Now, contrary to the name of the app, we are not all lazy about getting things done, it’s just that we lack motivation and sometimes there are too many things to think about before we even get to the task. That gives us even more excuses to not get things done.
LazyHabit takes all of those steps that may need to be done beforehand and provides a subtle and guided tour on the individual tasks to perform to inch your way towards completing the full item. We have all read about how we never get projects done because they become so large in our heads, we feel like we’ll never finish them, so we never start them. LazyHabit helps break down tasks into digestible steps that are easy to visualize and quick to complete. So, as you complete each step, you get a sense of accomplishment which drives further productivity.
The app comes equipped with a bunch of different types of activities or tasks most people need to get done. They range from Productivity to Health to Pre-Routine activities. Yes, there are pre-routine activities to get you pumped up or to help you get through your day. In all, these tasks are all predefined with individual steps and timed so you know how long each one takes. This helps when you are scheduling them into your busy calendar.
To start, I recommend browsing through the Explore area of the app. That’s where all the activities are listed. You can try them out from here, and if you like one, Save it. Once saved, it becomes a part of your Routines. Anything that is saved in your Routines portion of the app can then be scheduled on your calendar, which is unique to this app. Adding items to your calendar ensures you will do those activities. LazyHabit prompts you with reminders, so you won’t forget.
I really liked the Meditation and stretches, so I scheduled a few of those throughout my workday, to help keep me grounded and spread some calm across the chaos.
I think you can create your own tasks, but haven’t figured that one out, yet. I would like to see a tutorial or some instruction on how to best use the app, and hope for one soon.
Until then, I plan on leveraging LazyHabit to my advantage, not only to help me get thing done, but to also strengthen me to do more.
