Apps to Help with Those New Year Resolutions
By Robyn Wright
Did you make a New Year’s resolution? Often we fail to keep them past the first few weeks, but don’t worry, help is at hand! There are lots of apps to keep you on track and help you achieve your goals. Here are 6 examples:
Weight Loss Resolution
Calorie Counter – MyFitnessPal
This is a popular app for those looking to lose weight and eat healthier. You can track your calories using the database of over 4 million different food types and get fit by following the 350+ exercises. If you have other fitness devices, many of them will work in conjunction with the MyFitnessPal suite of apps. Available for iOS and Android.
Financial Wellness Resolution
If your resolution is to get a better handle on your money this year, then Mint is a great tool to use. It is available on iOS, Android, and Windows Phones as well as through the web. Link all your accounts, investments, and loans to get the big picture of your finances. Be reminded of when bills are due, create a budget, and even keep track of and improve your credit.
Learn To Resolution
Are you trying to improve yourself in the new year by learning something new? Udemy offers thousands of courses on-demand. You can learn about business, health, hobbies, photography, programming, and so much more. Available for iOS and Android devices.
Be Inspired Resolution
TED Talks can inspire us in both our personal and business lives. They are a series of short talks that cover all kinds of topics. Speakers give thoughtful and entertaining presentations on their chosen topic and often convey ideas in dynamic ways. The app is available for iOS and Android.
Get Organized Resolution
Chances are you have already heard someone mention Evernote. It is an incredibly popular and useful tool to keep anything and everything organized. Not only are there the original Evernote apps for iOS, Android, and Windows Phones, but there are a huge number of other apps that help with more specific tasks and work right alongside the main app. Think of it as your desk where you keep everything. It helps you work, write, collect, find and present, all in one easy-to-access place.
Travel More Resolution
If you are planning to see more of the world this year, then TripAdvisor is a great app to help you explore locations, get to your destination, and find the best places to stay. The app is available for iOS, Android, and Windows Phones.
