DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that using a countdown timer helps boost one's productivity? According to Shawn Razek in his article, "Why Everyone Can Benefit from Using Countdowns", using a countdown timer helps a person focus on the important tasks to get completed before it is due. This is because countdowns let a person see the time left. Hence, allowing one to handle tasks with a sense of urgency. Razek also argues that countdown motivates a person by increasing their willingness to get something done. He explains that seeing how little the time is left to complete a task puts a person in a motivated state of mind. This suggests that a countdown timer helps a person manage their time and priorities.

Meanwhile, many things are going digital, and one of these is the countdown timer. Nowadays, anyone can have a countdown timer on their smartphone.

    "This is a free app. Unlike other apps, Cloxee actually allows you to design the countdown; you can choose a style, font, filter, colours, etc. In addition, Cloxee makes it super easy to share your countdown as a video (which looks like a real-time countdown) or photo. The cherry on the top is the Today Widget, which means you don't need to go to the app everytime you want to check your countdown."
