Now is probably a good time to mention that I forget to take my birth control on time -- a lot. Fortunately, it's quite possible my ovaries don't work properly, but that's a tale for yet another time/therapy session.
I used myPill to log that I took The Pill, but it's actually a great reminder app, letting you know the effectiveness window in case you forget to take it at the exact same time every day. Even though setting a notification to take your birth control is something women have been doing since the first Nokia brick phones came with alarms, I personally can never have too many reminders.
Day 3: BTW, I'm actively trying not to get pregnant
Monday means back to my regular work schedule. Instead of my usual iPhone alarm clock, I used Sleep Cycle to assess my quality of sleep, and wake me up at the perfect moment in my REM cycle.
I was skeptical of the app, since I can sleep through a nuclear war and am a monster when woken too soon, but it worked; I was gently woken up with a soothing chime sound within the 30-minute time frame I requested. I felt refreshed! And, per my Fitbit, I actually got quality sleep, something I was convinced I never get, though again, what about the quantity? Why use an app to tell me something I could tell myself?
