5 Apps You Should Use Daily In College

Cruise through your week with these useful and simple apps.

College is all about multitasking our social, personal and work life. Maintaining a balance can be tough because some days will be successful and some the absolute worst. So, what better to help organize ourselves with some useful and handy apps? Here are the top 5 apps you need to stay planned and stress-free!

1. Pzizz-Sleep, Nap, Focus (4.7 stars)

This app is the best thing that has happened to me. Pzizz is an app which consists of music, sounds and voiceovers to help relax, sleep, and stay focused. If you want to sleep better at night or take refreshing naps during the day, then this is the app for you!

Every time you use the app, it creates a unique session for you, with multiple sound effects to choose from, which means it is easily customizable and enables a relaxing and personalized listening experience. The sounds are very comforting, and you won’t even realize how quick you will zone out! College can be stressful, however, it shouldn’t affect your good sleeping habits. So, stop stressing and start relaxing.

2. Quizlet (4.4 stars)

Quizlet is a fantastic app to help practice and learn better while you’re studying. Create our own flashcards/study sets to test your memory, writing and listening skills. You can customize them with different languages, images and play games to make studying less of a chore and more a fun activity.

Not only that, you can share your study sets with others s and find millions more created by other students. I am grateful for quizlet because it saved my high school grades. (for real though). For classes such as science/math, I used quizlet to help me memorize facts and differentiate between what I already know and what I don’t. So, you can thank me later when you're crushing those tests and exams.

3. Grammarly Keyboard (4.4 stars)

Now, if you already don’t have Grammarly, you need to download it right now. Grammarly is an app that automatically detects grammar, spelling error, word choice and style mistakes we all make when writing. Not only that, Grammarly can also detect plagiarism.

The app will ensure your writing is error-free, clear and simple. Grammarly helped me immensely in high school for my language and literature class. So, when your schedule’s tight and you don’t have time to go the writing center, Grammarly will be your best friend.

4. Rate My Professors (4.3 stars)

So, I can confirm that I live under a rock because I have never heard of this app, until a few weeks ago. It is exactly what the title says- get the classes you want with great professors. Search a professor’s name to compare their ratings, difficulty level, reviews and classroom performance so you can make the best decision for your classes.

Simply enter in your school, major or interests to find results you want. When you’re selecting classes for the new semester, you can be sure of which professor’s class you want to be in.

5. Flora-Focus, Study, Forest 2 (4.6 stars)

I think we can all relate when we need to focus but we just can’t put our phones down. I am very guilty of this because I am addicted to snapchat and watching clips of the show KUWTK on Instagram. Whenever you don’t use your phone, you can plant a seed and see it gradually grow into a tree.

However, if you can’t resist, then the tree will be killed. Due to this, Flora will motivate you to stop procrastinating, complete your goals and track your everyday progress. Hmm, need more motivation? Well, you can use money as an incentive by being willing to pay an amount to help plant a real tree on earth.

Here is Useful Info: How to Stop excessive sweating?

Userful Info About Sweating

Sweating: the basics

Sweating is one of the most common and prevalent problem that people face. There are many industries thriving on the issue of sweating.They sell deodorants, perfumes and antiperspirant to help you get rid of sweating altogether in case of antiperspirants and help you tackle your body odour with perfumes.

Two of our glands are responsible for all the sweating that we do. One gland is known as Eccrine gland and the other is Apocrine glands. The Eccrine gland is found all over our body. Whenever we do any exercise or any other form of physical activity, the brain releases a chemical known as acetylcholine. This chemical triggers our spinal cord to release the salt and water from our blood to the surface of our skin so that when the water evaporates our skin can be cooled down, and the body temperature is lowered altogether.

Our hair follicles have these Apocrine glands. These glands secrete oily liquid whenever we find ourselves in some form of stress or intensive physical activity. The body odour that we all find so annoying is due to the bacteria that is present on our skin. It combines with the oily sweat that is secreted and creates the odour. We lose around 3 litres of water in an hour on a hot day. Genetics and the climate in which live also have a role to play in our sweating.

Ways to stop sweating

There are a lot of remedies that can be employed to reduce sweating, some of them are clinical and some of them are cosmetic. But they visibly help in reducing sweating and also help in minimizing the body odour . The cosmetic methods are:

Using an antiperspirant

There are a lot of different antiperspirant deodorants that can be used to get rid of sweating and reduce the bad smell of sweating. Majority of the antiperspirant just provide fragrance, they fail to sustain the fragrant state once the sweating starts. Using proper antiperspirant that has aluminium compound between the range of 10%-20% can help. The reason Old spice has maintained a stable position in the market of sweat controller is because they have Aluminum zirconium trichlorohydrex gly with 18% concentration. This compounds stops sweating and keeps your armpits fresh for a long time. Old Spice delivers what they promise. The negative claims that the aluminum compound causes harm has never been established to date. Hence, it is the best option when you are looking for antiperspirant deodorant.

Apply Antiperspirant at the right time

This might come as a surprise, but when you are applying antiperspirant deodorant to stay fresh all day, you need to apply it at night instead of the morning. The aluminum compound requires time to create a block for the sweat glands. You need to ensure that your armpits are free of any form residue from the sweat and deodorant that you had applied the day before. Applying the deodorant at night will help in reducing the sweat by 65%!

Eat strategically!

You need to cut down on oily foods to prevent excessive sweating.

Do We Really Need A Life Plan?

I'm letting happen.

We're living in a culture that is definitely stuck in between praising the planner and cheering on the art of just letting it happen. I feel like I am constantly being told to let things happen the way that they will, and that things just effortlessly fall together, but the thing is, for me anyway, nothing just effortlessly falls together.

In fact, everything hardly just falls together. There's a lot of elbow grease and behind the scenes nonsense that goes into things effortlessly falling together. The truth is: there is no denying that planning is an essential portion of life.

It just is.

I know that I personally have an issue with letting go. And I also get that there has to be an aspect of just letting things happen, but just doing so without some force of action or some loose roadmap will not get you to any destination.

Maybe it isn't all about the destination, and maybe it is all about the journey. But how are you going to go on a journey if you don't have at least an idea of where you are going?

I may be an avid planner, but I have learned to let the reigns go a little bit, and although it has been super frustrating, it's also been rewarding. And it's gotten the job done. But I've always known where I wanted to go, and loosely how I can get there.

Nevertheless, I am open to the possibilities of rerouting. Life doesn't come with a GPS, but it does give us the geography of the rocky terrain from a birds-eye-view, and I am incredibly grateful for that. But it's what we do with what we are given that really matters.

And it's finding the happy medium between planning and letting go. It's the in-between that counts. The loose structure of the art of letting go. It's life's jazz piece that we are dying to see through. It's planning on letting go because you trust the end result will be promising --even if sometimes it isn't. So you hope for the best, but you plan for the worst.

And you learn from a healthy amount of failure. And a trivial amount of mistakes. And you let it happen --time and time again.

Sometimes we have to pump our culture full of happy mediums.

We have to find those happy mediums.

And this is one of them.
