Whether your New Year’s resolution for 2020 is to get fitter, eat healthier, save money or travel more, everyone wants to try and be a better version of themselves in the year to come. While people come up with great ways to smash their goals early on, statistics show only 9.2% of people actually stick to their New Year’s resolution and kick their bad habit long term.
If you’re looking to make a change next year and stay on top of your goals for good, take a look at our list of top 5 apps for really embracing the new you.
If you’ve got a few goals you want to work towards and bad habits you want to change, the Strides app is the perfect place to keep track of everything you’re working towards in one place. Get organised and build charts to see your progress on everything in one place – you can even set reminders for extra motivation when you need a boost.
Available on iOS only, it’s completely free. Track anything you want, any way you want and stay on top of all your different goals.
If that all sounds great to you but you’ve got an Android device, the HabitBull app is available on both Android and iOS, and works on all the same principles. Keep track of your day to day habits and build healthy routines to help you stay on top of your goals.
You can quickly input data from your homescreen using Android widgets, so you’ll never end up forgetting exactly what your run time was. There’s also multi-device syncing, so if you want to switch from your phone to your laptop – no problem.
Way of Life
Changing the bad habits of a lifetime isn’t easy, but with Way of Life you can keep track of your routine and spot what helps and what doesn’t. With a colour coded system, you can easily spot positive and negative trends, and there’s a diary function too, so you can jot down what triggered a bad habit, and avoid it in future.
The app is available on both Android and iOS for free, or you can get the premium version to access even more features, like cloud backup.
If you’re looking to improve your productivity in 2020, the Toodledo app could be the perfect companion. Flexible and multi-functional, it provides you with the tools to efficiently organise your life and get the most out of everyday.
With folders, tags, contexts and more to help you get organised and make lists, you can then easily filter and sort your tasks to see what’s due when. Toodledo can also tell you what needs to be completed when, and send you alerts when things are due. It’s free, and you can download it on Android or iOS.
Learn a language, get into shape, stop snacking – it’s up to you. With Coach Me you can track your habits, and even get support, advice and tips from a huge community whenever you need a helping hand – and the basic version is free.
From £20 a week, you can also get access to over 700 coaches ready to help you whenever you need a boost through the app or through a phone consultation – it’s like having a life coach on hand whenever you need it.
