So you’re halfway into the first month of 2018. Have you kept up with your New Year’s resolution, or have your wellness goals already fallen by the wayside? Well, if you’re like most people, you’ve already found it challenging to break those bad habits and form new ones. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t. You just might need a little bit of help to achieve your goals. Luckily, there are tons of apps out there that you can download to keep you moving forward. And I’ve rounded up a few types of apps for you to check out that can help you keep those New Year’s resolutions all year round.
1.Habit tracker. In order to move forward with a new routine, you have to understand how you tick, so I suggest downloading a good habit tracking app like Habit-Bull, which tracks everything from exercise to reading and helps you to set goals and follow through with reminders.
2.Step counter. Your phone may already come with a step counter or Health app, but if your goal is to be more active, then think about getting an app like Stepz to track you when you’re walking and/or running.
3.Fitness. As working out and eating right go hand in hand when it comes to fitness, why not get an app that helps you do both? And My Fitness Pal is an app that you should definitely consider, as it lets you set goals and helps keep track of what you’re eating at home (and at restaurants) and track of your exercise efforts.
4.Sleep. For the iPhone lovers out there, you already have the Bedtime feature on your device to remind you of when to get to bed and wake up. But for those that don’t, try using SleepCycle. This handy app actually analyzes you while you sleep and picks the optimal time to wake you up.
5.Meditation. And if you’re looking to keep the positive vibes going throughout 2018, then an app like Calm can help you meditate and practice mindfulness on a daily basis.
