Question: What's one app you use that helps make your day-to-day less stressful?
"I like to use the Breathe app on my Apple Watch. Sometimes, a simple cure for stress is to simply breathe. Meditation has been proven to calm your mind, and this app helps you to do just that. It reminds me each day to stop, take a deep breath, close my eyes for a minute and relax. In addition to the series of breathing guides, it also gives you gentle taps to help you focus. Simple, but effective."
"I use Google Hangouts for my business and my everyday life. It helps me stay connected to everyone at all times, and I don't even have to be at the computer to do so. We have some team members in different time zones, so it especially helps move things forward when there are quick questions at odd hours of the day."
"Search engine optimization is a stressful industry to work in, and it's sometimes difficult hitting internal SEO objectives and deadlines while also maintaining a fun work environment. I pay for the premium version of Pandora and have it play in the office while we're working. It helps lighten the mood, and when we need some comic relief, I put on an obscure station like traditional Chinese or the Christmas rap station."
"Meditation has been proven to increase productivity and reduce stress. I've been using Headspace for almost a year. Many of the guests we interview on the podcast I run use it too. I swear by it so much that I bought it for family members for the holidays. Being able to take 10 minutes to focus on myself is one thing I cannot give up. That time is sacred."
"Running a business in New York City also means running around New York City. I wouldn't be able to get around town without Gett. Not only can I book my rides in advance but they also have $10 flat rides all over Manhattan. Knowing I can make it to a meeting with time to spare definitely alleviates my stress."
