Intro: If you’re a business owner, student, or someone who spends a lot of time on their phone, then this blog post is for you! In this article, we’ll be exploring how to boost your productivity when using your Android Phone. Whether it’s just checking emails and social media in the morning before work or doing research for an assignment at night after work, there are plenty of ways to manage your time with these helpful tips better. So read on and explore all the ways to help you get more done in less time with your android phone!
1. Disable notifications from apps you don’t need alerts for:
Sure, we all have those specific applications on our phone that we either find to be problematic or just aren’t needed. That’s why it’s a great idea to reduce the number of alert sounds and vibrations your phone makes and only enable them for the apps you need alerts from. It will save you time and help prevent you from being distracted by apps that no longer serve a purpose.
2. Use apps to keep track of your time:
These great apps can be installed on your phone through proxy-rarbg and can be used to monitor exactly how long you spend on the tasks that are most to get done daily, which apps you use the most, how much time you spend on social media and whatnot. You can then use this information to manage your time better each day. Another useful app that is similar to “LifeSum” or “RescueTime” is called “Momentum.” It also keeps track of how long you use specific apps for/how long you are spending on them throughout the day. It’s a helpful app if you need some awareness of your smartphone usage habits.
3. Make sure your home screen isn’t cluttered with apps:
Another thing to make sure is that your home screen isn’t cluttered with apps- this ensures that it doesn’t take too long for you to find an app when using your phone. If you have a lot of apps on your phone and it takes too much time for you to find an app or switch between them, this could be affecting how productive you are while using your phone. If this sounds like you, we recommend uninstalling any unnecessary apps to clutter your phone.
4. Use the “priority” list with the “do not disturb” mode:
It is also beneficial to use the smartphone’s do-not-disturb feature. For example, with android phones, making use of ‘Priority’ lists can help ensure that notifications from essential people or tasks come through even when in do-not-disturb mode/set to priority mode. Another easy thing to do with an android phone is to set up the ‘do not disturb mode so that it automatically goes into priority/do not disturb mode in designated periods.
5. A Pro-tip:
Do only important tasks at specific times: When you are working on a project or assignment, try to plan out your day to have particular days for doing each section of your work. For example, you could set one day aside for finding sources and referencing while you could use another day for writing the actual essay/report/study guide, etc. Create a list of tasks to complete each day, such as checking email, responding to texts, or making phone calls. Then, schedule these tasks in a particular order throughout the day. For example, you could do all of your work-related tasks first and then do any personal errands or calls later.
6. Avoid using your phone for anything unimportant:
For every unanswered text message that you receive, put it towards the end of your to-do list so that you don’t spend time replying to every single one. If possible, only check texts at specific times throughout the day instead of constantly checking them as soon as they come through. This way, it will be less likely for you to give up because of boredom and impulsively send out an answer to someone’s question.
7. Reduce unnecessary browsing:
When searching for something online (i.e., the weather, a restaurant), search for it in Google Maps rather than going on safari or your browser to open up a new webpage and find what you’re looking for. Open up the map while you’re at it! You would be surprised by how many people don’t do this and end up wasting a lot of time.
8. Turn off notifications:
It might feel good when you get an alert that someone has tagged you in a photo or posted something nice about you on Face book, but that feeling will only last for so long. Turning off alerts will help reduce distractions throughout your day because more minor things can pop up on your screen after finishing what you’re currently working on.
9. Bonus tip:
Please keep track of tasks completed by creating checklists within Google Drive; it’s like a to-do list on steroids. You can create separate lists for different occasions or group them all under one list if they’re similar; it’s entirely up to you! You can take notes, add video or images to your lists, color code certain items within the list (such as ‘high priority tasks), and you can even assign due dates.
Finally, It’s easy when we’re doing something that requires concentration (such as studying or writing an essay) to keep working without taking any breaks whatsoever; however, this hinders our productivity in the long run. So, remember to take short breaks to increase your productivity.
