It is really hard to take care of your favorite multiple things at once, even more if you are a hyperactive person. You get over burden, lost and exhausted quickly achieving not even half of your scheduled tasks. Ends up feeling like a `ne’er-do-well` and highly demotivated to easily give up on your dreams and life which eventually leaves you in a dark hole of sadness of not achieving.
But hey! that’s not happening because you are a person with no skills or ability to do it, trust me on this. You have what it takes to make it through, you have the energy, ability and the spark in you to achieve anything you want. The obstacles you might be facing are probably due to your hyperactivity, just like mine. ~
What is hyperactivity?
It makes you think about everything at once hence you can not focus on the single task at a time. The most important consequence of it is that it is overwhelming! You just can’t skip it or make it go away until you control or over come it. You need to fight it through which is not really easily but achievable. It has some physical symptoms like extreme headaches, sudden feeling of sadness, tiredness and no motivation, of course. I am not trying to explain you a medical condition here but a personal experience of such a state.
It took me a while and a lot of courage to overcome it and I have not completely achieved it yet. I got off the track sometimes, but it okay since I am getting better day by day. The key to conquer is to try to stay organized as much as possible in your daily routine.
Break down your ideas, work & tasks and focus on each one by one. I have started using technology to help me staying organized. Prioritize what needs to be done first and focus on it and did not think about the next task until the first one is done. It is tough when you start but gradually it becomes a habit and you start enjoying it.
I had an iPhone earlier and recently got an android phone, so I will be sharing apps from both of my phones so everyone can find something useful from this post.
# 1 : Asana Management Tool
Well, many of you might have already used in your office. Asana is an task management tool. Since I have started working from home so I needed but eventually it became the savior of my hyper-hectic life. I use it to list each and every task, be it work, home, family or personal care. The mobile app is pretty friendly too. You can download it from below :

#4 : WordPress
This is not an uncommon app that needs introduction but I’d like to mention because it saves me a lot of efforts when it comes to writing for my blogs.
#5 : Google Photos
In a hurry, I always restored my phone and lost my precious pictures and important sms but not anymore! Thank God for that. Google photos is now there to backup your pictures ASA it comes in your gallery. Voila!
#6 : SMS BACKUP+
IT automatically backup SMS, MMS and call log entries using a separate label in Gmail / Google Calendar. It is also possible to restore SMS and call log entries back to the phone (MMS not supported yet). Isn’t great you can always track down your communication with a client or important notes? I say its amazing and comes handy. Sadly, It is only available for android.
#7 : ColorMe
Ever heard of coloring books for adults? Read it now. Coloring books are no longer just for the kids. In fact, adult coloring books are all the rage right now. According to the American Art Therapy Association, art therapy is a mental health profession in which the process of making and creating artwork is used to “explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem.” So basically, it’s similar to good old therapy (source).
