Life can be quite challenging at times, especially when it comes to new experiences. If you like to experience new things, or at least want to try it to see how you feel about it, but need a last push to get you started, you may find Shuffle My Life for Android helpful in this regard.
The free application suggests to you tasks that you can complete on the given day. While there is no forcing you to complete a task, it may help improve life quality over all. The tasks are diverse and range from contacting your family to see what is going on over jogging where you stand for 38 seconds to going outside to take a photo of an object starting with W after you have walked a mile.
You can get started right away after you have installed the application on your Android device. Simply tap on the logo at the top of the screen to get a new task. There are no restrictions in place to prevent you from tapping on the logo multiple times and that is a good thing even though it requires self-control to actually complete one of the tasks displayed on the screen.
You can make a couple of configuration changes before you tap on the logo. A click on the menu button displays a context menu that enables you to limit tasks to indoor or outdoor activities. This can be useful if the weather conditions are not the best to complete outdoor tasks, or if you are on the go and cannot complete any indoor tasks because of it. The menu links to a tips box as well that you can use to suggest a new task that you'd like added to the application.
The application could use a couple of features that would improve its usability. An option to mark tasks done would be great, as would be an option to filter out specific types of tasks, e.g. sports. It would also be great if you could select tasks only from a particular category of tasks, e.g. social or discovery, and if there would be a group option.
Shuffle My Life can help improve your life if you are willing to give it a try. It takes self-control to do so though but even if you do not complete all tasks displayed to you, it may offer inspiration which can also be really useful to fill a boring Sunday afternoon with activities.
