“Time isn’t the main thing. It’s the only thing.” A saying by Miles Davis expresses that time is the only thing we should worry about. In our everyday lives there is just so much to do that keeping track and staying in a routine becomes very hard.
If you focus on work then sometimes health gets compromised and if you focus too much on health and fitness you might feel left out on leisure activities. Life is quite tricky to balance and that is where you require a helper. In this article, we will introduce 10 time management apps to you which will make sure you do your work on time without compromising on a richer life.

Desk time-Time Tracking App For Businesses & Freelancers
As an employee spending a lot of time on your desk is natural but what if you could see your healthy and unhealthy browsing activities? If you can see how much time you waste online, maybe you can fix your habits.
With Desk time you basically add sites to “productive” and “unproductive” categories and then when you view them the app will add sites into the two groups accordingly. This way you and your employer can see your productivity rate and you can improve with time. E.g. if you work for a summer camp and you are focusing more on Facebook than on children’s activities then you can get into trouble.
A 2019 report by Hootsuite and We Are Social shows that an average person spends 6 hours online which is 100 days a year. Isn’t that too much? If you think you are hooked to the internet then this app can save you!!!
