Get back to normal after the summer with these 4 free planners

Summer is synonymous with the beach, terraces, traveling and, above all, resting and disconnecting from the daily routine of work and studies. It is also a time of year that some people use to try to improve their productivity at work or studies and thus reduce the number of hours they spend in front of the computer. The best way to do it is by using applications to manage day-to-day tasksboth at work, in studies and in private life.

With these applications, we can plan in advance what we should focus our attention on, whether it is finishing a project, presenting a paper, scheduling a weekend outing, helping our children before an exam, finding time to go to the gym and get back in shape, go running, play with friends, among other things. One aspect that we must take into account, in order to be able to disconnect on rest days, is to create different calendars for work, studies and family life.

The Outlook calendar, available through the Mail app, allows us to program our daily, weekly, monthly and annual tasks directly from our PC. In addition, by using the calendar of our Microsoft account, we can consult and modify the annotations from any other mobile device, since the changes will be automatically synchronized. The design isn’t the best or the most attractive, but it’s a perfect solution if you don’t want to use a calendar via the web or install third-party applications.

If the aesthetics offered by both the native Windows application, Mail and the web version, is not a solution, we can give the One Calendar application a try, an application with a very simple and visual user interface (allows us to use different topics) that allows us to quickly know all the appointments that we have in our agenda. In addition, it includes different types of view to know quickly, how busy we are for the week or the month. It is compatible with Google and Outlook calendars as well as Exchange, iCloud, Synology and others. We can download the application for free through the following link, but if we want to get the most out of it, it will be necessary to checkout.
