6 Work-Life Balance Apps You Should Share With Your Employees

With the help of mobile technology, it’s much easier to help your team with their work/life balance. Rachel Ritlop, via Forbes, discusses some great apps that you can share and encourage!


ATracker: This app tracks how long an individual spends on each item of business. Consider implementing this at work meetings and encouraging employees to use this for personal assignments.

Pocket/Instapaper: These apps offer integrated bookmakers to save any article or video online for later viewing, and “they strip the content to text-only format.” This can help your employees when they’re researching work-related information.

Zapier: With this, connect more than 140+ apps together (i.e. Slack, MailChimp) to “automate repetitive tasks in the background.” Having your team members use this will allow them to focus their time and energy on more other important projects.


Headspace: Headspace is a wonderful mindfulness app. With meditation and wellness tools, it promotes happiness and compassion. This is especially useful for any team members who experience burnout and stress in the workplace.

General life management

Week Plan: This is a calendar and to-do list in one. Schedule tasks simply into the app (with reminders), and check off each as they are completed. Your employees can ensure they have time for activities that matter to them.

Google Calendar Goals: This new feature allows an individual to choose a goal, and the app will schedule time for that goal based on availability. And there are options to decide how long to spend on that task, which day, how often, etc. This is great for your employees who have non-work-related goals they want to accomplish in their busy schedule.
