You’d think that with having a large family I’d be super organized. Nope! Recently, I was looking for an app to help get my life in order, and right at the top of “organization apps” suggestions was one called Fabulous. I read through the description and thought it was definitely worth a try. (There were others but this list totally applied to me).
I don’t have ADHD but I do have ADD. I’m easily overwhelmed which is why I don’t get a lot accomplished. There are many things I need to do every day and it’s overwhelming so I give up and play a game on my phone, scroll through Facebook/Instagram or take a nap. This leads to mass chaos and mess. I wanted to change.
Fabulous allows you to choose your journey- feel energized, sleep better, focus or concentrate more or lose weight and eat healthier. I chose the 1st one.
My day is divided into 3 parts- morning, afternoon and evening. I chose different “rituals” for each part of the day.
I don’t always accomplish all of my tasks but I do a pretty good job. Fabulous starts off helping you develop good habits. It takes 21 days to change your habits and the 1st one is very simple- drink a glass of water, first thing, every morning. Easy, right? I’m on Day 19 and I now usually remember before my phone makes the sound of water pouring (kind of freaked me out the 1st time I heard it). When you complete an assigned task, you receive a letter (all of which have been worth the read) and you’ve unlocked a new task.
You can add or remove rituals any time. You can also adjust the times for many of them like fitness or naps. It took me a couple of days to figure things out but I absolutely love the app and am so glad I found it.
For even more cool options, click on the rocket, click “Make Me Fabulous” then you can choose from a variety of activities. These are amazing and so useful for people like me who are easily distracted.
On September 21st, they are adding more options after working with the Center for Advanced Hindsight at Duke University. There has been a lot of scientific study done with developing and tweaking the app since its launch 2 years ago. Some of these new features will require a monthly subscription but there will still be plenty of free options for you to choose from. If you want to create some order to your life, develop some healthy habits, sleep better and more, I highly recommend giving Fabulous a try! **edite** I just found out this is available for Android only BUT they are currently working on an iPhone version and you can request to be notified when it’s finished.
I do wish I could create a separate schedule for the weekends but may that’s something they will allow in the future. As for the app itself, it’s been life changing for me and I look forward to seeing all I can change within myself!
