We introduce five best apps to make the most of your time during this lockdown period and emerge a winner when the dust settles down.

Technology today has made it easier to socialize with the people we love, to learn a thing or two and to you know, work from home. But the key here is to reduce your stress and anxiety while also enabling you to have some fun. There is literally no reason for you to be bored at home when there are a plethora of things for you to choose from and stay ahead in life. To utilize your time in the most productive way possible.

Over the past few weeks, I spent a conspicuous amount of time researching on things people can do for free or without breaking the bank and here is my take on what you can do!

Blinkist (Paid but offers Free Trial)

Reading is a habit almost everyone encourages you to do but time is of the essence. Almost no one has the patience to finish a big thick book. I mean, just looking at a big book gives me anxiety. However, Blinkist is different. Think of it as a book summary service. Blinkist prepares short blinks of some of the popular books out there that you can finish in 15-20 minutes on their app. With a catchy user-interface, once you start you simply can’t stop. They have a wide variety of audiobooks you could listen to as well and a ton of original content. Though it is a premium paid service, right now they’re offering anyone a 30 days free subscription to give it a try.
