Being a mom certainly comes with its challenges. But with 60% of today’s working moms feeling tired all the time, exhaustion is clearly a major component in the lives of many modern-day moms. From the school run to spillages to finding time to get yourself ready for work, being a mom is perhaps more challenging today than ever before due to modern-day pressures and expectations.
Especially if a single parent, these challenges can sometimes become ‘too much’ and a helping hand is most certainly needed from time to time. If you’re looking for something to make life that little bit easier, below are some key apps and gadgets specifically recommended by other moms to make life more manageable.
Mornings are often a stressful time. Having to get yourself and your kids ready in a short span of time is challenging enough without having to scramble around looking for your valuable belongings. Your keys, phone, and wallet are likely essentials you carry around everywhere, and there’s nothing worse on a busy morning than being unable to find them. That’s where Tile comes in.
A handy, small device with an accompanying app that easily attaches to virtually any object, Tile will ensure you never lose anything again. If you can’t find the item your Tile is attached to, simply activate the app and it will provide a step-by-step guide to the exact location of the item. You can even make the Tile ring, allowing you to find it by sound too!
Alarm Clock for Me
Don’t be fooled by its name as the Alarm Clock for Me app is certainly more than just an alarm clock. Everyone knows the key to being productive and feeling energized is a good night’s sleep, and this app can help you achieve that if you struggle to drift off.
Offering an innovative sleep timer that plays either white noise or relaxing tunes, you’ll be gently lulled to sleep using these scientifically-proven sounds. Then, when it’s time to wake up, you can even customize the alarm feature to play your favorite song instead of the typical ‘beep’ noise of a standard alarm.
As a working mom, it’s likely you rely on your phone almost constantly to stay in touch with everyone. So, if your phone was to suddenly run out of battery, you’d be stuck without a method of contact which is extremely dangerous in an emergency situation.
The portable charger by Jackery is a true winner, providing enough battery to recharge an iPhone up to three full times! Allowing you to charge 3 devices at once, this charger also doubles as a nifty flashlight – perfect for night-time use.
Today’s technology advancements enable us to find an app for almost anything and, as a busy mom, it would be a shame to pass up on all this help. If things are getting on top of you, using just one of the above apps will make life easier and allow you to spend more quality time alone and with your kids.
