Life: Hacked! with Alexa’s Skills This is a sponsored post. Thank you for supporting SITC!
We all know Alexa is Amazon’s Virtual Assistant and you can utilize her mad skills through one of the amazon devices like my Amazon Echo Plus. She plays our favorite music, gives us an update on the weather each morning including the news, sets alarms and reminders and helps me with my shopping list but there are even more specific things Alexa helps with… Just say, “Alexa, make my life easier,” and she will do exactly that with ten new Life Hack apps!
Setting it up is super easy, just go to the Alexa App and add new skills you think you will need then once the apps are activated all you need to say to Alexa is, “Alexa, make my life easier” and she will access these helpful life hacks for you.
Say something to Alexa like, “Chop Chop,” and she will help you with food chopping techniques. Or say, “Start nagging me” and you can get reminders to do things in a funny way. The “Mommy-gram” sends text messages from your device. “House tracker” tracks household chores (I mean this is a game changer), “My pod” creates podcast playlists, “Budget bot” helps you with financial planning… the list goes on.
Alexa has also been helping me stay on track with work and overall life goals with Lyfe Trak. I can sometimes get stuck in deadline mode and things like pleasure reading are totally lost in the shuffle. I would love to get through a book these days but I forget to dedicate time to it. Alexa reminds me to take 30 minutes to sit and read!
Lyfe Trak also helps me stay on track toward my work goals. I can say “Alexa, tell Lyfe Trak that I have to write today for 2 hours” or “Alexa, tell Lyfe Trak that I have to do biz networking for 1 hour today” and it will track your progress and keep you on track! I can rely on Alexa to be a consistent and helpful assistant for these tasks.
