The point of a holiday, however long, is to help you de-stress. And sometimes that means doing something instead of lounging around doing nothing. If you have a pile of personal to-dos that are weighing you down, using a leave day to get to those things you never seem to have time for can go a long way for your well-being.

Daily routines put your complex life in order. If you structure every day, though, you can't always account for things that take variable time. Leave those unstructured tasks for the weekend.
Windows/Web/iOS/Android: Microsoft has released a public preview for its new to-do app, aptly called To-Do. This is ostensibly Microsoft's version of Wunderlist, which the company acquired back in 2015.
Chrome: Trello is an incredibly powerful productivity tool, and Next Step for Trello makes it a little better. The add-on lets you add checklists and check boxes to Trello cards, check them off directly in a card and arrange them so you see just the next step or all steps.
Web/Android/iOS: Asana, the popular collaborative to-do app and project manager, now has a board system that works pretty much exactly like Trello.
iOS/Mac: There's certainly no shortage of notes app out there, but Bear's an app that manages to toe the line between a few different popular styles, and might suit you if you need more features than plain text offers, but not as much as something like Evernote.
Apple has always packed a lot of decent software into OS X, but long time users may remember when the built-in options sucked so much that you had to install basic alternatives, like a PDF reader or image viewer, just to get something that worked well. Times have changed, and if you haven't looked lately, it's time to try a few of those built-in productivity tools again.
Mac/iOS: Todoist is one of our favourite to-do apps, and today the Mac and the iPhone versions picked up big updates to make them easier to use. The updates to the Mac app make it easier to add and schedule to-dos, and the updates to the iPhone version make use of iOS 9's 3D Touch and other features.
I've tried dozens of solutions to clean up my inbox, and so far, the Sortd Chrome extension comes closest to helping me use and organise email the way I work. Sortd transforms Gmail into a drag-and-drop workspace with columns of customisable lists. It's like life-organising webapp Trello, but for email.
