We all want to jam-pack our days with more awesome — preferably, without the aid of crystal meths. While effective, it’s not so great for your teeth or general health … or anything for that matter.
So look no further than the Internet to help you get more done while you’re working online. It’s like one of those “answer’s in the question” kind of riddles but less annoying.
Here are the seven best productivity websites tohelp you tackle a serious mound of sh* t.
This website helps you learn to speed read, which will vastly improve every aspect of your work day. Normally, we learn to read at a base rate of 200 terms per minute, which is about the velocity it takes to read something out loud.
But once you stillness that inner voice, you’ll be able to read at rates double or triple that base rate.
Through the Spreeder app, you can transcript and paste whole passages of a text to be dolled out word by word at whatever velocity you define. Now you can explosion through that heap of emails and get to the good stuff — like Kanye’s Twitter feed.
Expand your vocabulary while at the same time ensuring food for the needy. With a simple word-matching quiz, you learn new words by increasing levels of difficulty. And for each question you get right, you donate 10 grains of rice to the World Food Programme to help end global hunger.
Since the site’s inception in 2007, virtually 100 billion grains of rice have been donated.Be advised, though, once you get going, it’s hard to stop.
Sometimes workinga little meditation into your day is as easy as clicking on a connection and doing what you’re told.
For those who can’t figure out how to sit still for a massage, let alone a deep meditation sesh, this is the app for you. Whether you want to peace out for two minutes or 20, Calm provides all the tools you need to get yourself, well, calm.
Because everyone knows stress is the number one boner — I entail, productivity killer.
Say so long towasting whole mornings scrolling through unwanted emails. Unroll.Mewill sort through your inbox to find out how many newsletters you’re subscribed to, and the results are often shocking.
After revealing the sources of all your spam( like, when did I sign on for Avocados Direct ??), Unroll.Me lets you decide which ones you want to stay subscribed to. After that, you’ll only get one streamlined digest per day. Not bad!
This website works like the ultimate reality check. Install it on your computer and it’ll tell ya how much day you spend on various websites and programs, giving you insight into your most and least productive days.
If you’ve everwondered where the whole day ran, this app will tell you.
Imagine having Ernest Hemingway as your copy editor — without the belligerent drunkenness. The Hemingway app not only points out grammar mistakes, butalso helps streamline your write by flagging convoluted sentences and unnecessary adverbs.
Basically, it’ll make editing those blog posts a whole lot easier. As the famous cat collector said himself,
There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.
Does that include tweeting, too?
What is that, you ask? According to Google, it’s defined as,
The ability to control oneself, including with regard to one’s feelings and passions or the expression of them in one’s behaviour, especially in difficult situations.
The SelfControl app helps you exercise that control-whatever-thing by blocking certain websites for a very specific quantity of hour. So that , no matter how much you cry and pray, it won’t let you stalk your exes on Facebook for at least five minutes — or however long you set the timer.
Download it here and do your selfie good.
