THIS WEEK’S FRESH IDEAS…
It has become common to find apps that make certain tasks easier and more accessible. From apps that bring you a driver to take you to your desired location (Lyft), to apps that bring you your groceries, glam or mental peace, apps are making life a lot easier. Here are a few we have stumbled across that we love:
1. Chime Babysitting
Thanks to Chime, finding a last-minute babysitter just got a lot easier. Parents can pick and choose from a variety of babysitters available, with the confidence that all sitters have been screened and had an in-person interview with the Chime team.
2. Wag! Dog Walking
Busy dog parents can now have a piece of mind knowing their best friends can have a potty break or a nice walk with the Wag! app, which offers dog walker services so that Fido can go and take care of business while you’re busy. With certified, trained, and screened walkers you can choose for an immediate walk or book an appointment for later on. You can also track your dog and the dog walker on your smartphone.
Bizzby is an app that allows people to finally get all those chores on that to do list to be completed. No matter what you need, Bizzby will have the person to help you get it done. With on-demand access to handyman’s, plumbing, electrical, cleaning, gardening, appliances, moving, junk removal, gutters, locksmith, health & beauty, and even personal training your this is your one-stop delegation station.
4. Head Space Meditation
What better way to relax and unwind than by meditating? Thanks to HeadSpace you can have meditations at your fingertips any time, and any place of the day for a year. With different categories and time lengths you can personalize your meditation routine and start to make a habit of it.
5. Talkspace Therapy
In need of someone to talk to? Head to Talkspace, where you have access to a licensed therapist, which you’ll be able to communicate with almost 24/7. Whether it’s through texting, voice or video calls there is always a way for you to communicate with your assigned therapist.
Commonly known as the Airbnb for dogs, DogVacay is an app that allows dog owners to find a sitter near them to take care of their beloved pets. With prices around $30 per night, you can leave your dog, cat, chinchilla, ferret, or even chicken for your desired amount of days while you’re away on your vacation.
