But sometimes all it takes is a little planning to feel like you're back in control.

If your organization could use some help, keep scrolling for the best apps to help manage your life:

If you're looking for an app that brings a sense of calm to your daily schedule, ZenDay is the perfect option for you. With a unique, 3D timeline, ZenDay allows you to zero-in on tasks you need to complete, while still viewing an overall list of your daily to-dos. A task is automatically updated or rescheduled based on when you complete it, whether the deadline is approaching or whether you didn't yet have time to finish it. In addition, you can also see just how much you've done and just how much you have left to do, allowing you to plan your time accordingly.

If you love the simplicity and straightforwardness of to do lists, can help you to take those organization skills to the digital space. The app combines a calendar and a task list, so you can get a monthly and daily list of action items that need to be completed. That way, you can plan a practice for your sports team, a movie night with friends and a term paper that's due in a month, in one easy-to-access space. It provides some organization to your world without making things too complicated, allowing you to plan your life in the way that works best for you.
