There are still many of us that haven’t experienced the joy of listening to audiobooks or podcasts. Sometimes listening to music whilst driving, commuting or cleaning the home can become very banal and trite, where we end up listening to the same track from the same artist for the hundredth time. If you’re looking to add variety to your everyday routines, why not start by listening to audiobooks and podcasts on Audible– not only are you getting your household chores done, but you’re also making the whole experience more enjoyable and most likely learning something new. Talk about killing two birds with one stone. Bonus: Audible offer you a FREE audiobook when you first sign-up!
Similar to Audible, you’ve most likely heard of Headspace by now since it has become a popular meditation and sleep app. This app is great for when you are commuting, walking, working, playing house and for falling asleep.

Duolingo is definitely hailed as one of the best apps for women by Pearls and Wine.
