    This is a meta-recommendation, but when you end up with too many menubar apps, you can stash them in Bartender
    more space for more apps!

    Keep your Mac from going to sleep

    This one is brilliant. Prevents you from digging around in the system preferences when you want to change how long until the screen goes black. Clicking it in the menu will prevent your mac from locking or going to sleep 🤘🏼

    I used to swear by Caffeine, but I like that Amphetamine is built on a modern codebase and has a ton of features (few that I use though).

    If you like Bartender 2 to keep your menu bar clean, I'd recommend HiddenMe to hide icons on your desktop.

    This CPU Monitor shows you how much you're crushing your CPU via the DOOM face. More injured = bigger CPU load. Totally pointless, therefore absolutely essential.
