Setting resolutions is the easy bit, but sticking to them can be challenging.
These ten apps can help keep you on track with the changes you want to make in your life:
If you need visual motivation to stay on track, Streaks helps you to stay consistent by logging circles on your calendar when you carry out your resolution and can be set to whatever frequency you choose.
If healthier eating or weight loss is your goal, then MyPlate Calorie Counter can help you track calories, access nutritional information, follow meal plans and monitor your food intake.
Breaking an addiction is one of the toughest resolutions to persevere with. Quitzilla motivates you by telling you how much money you’re saving, logging your progress, reminding you of your inputted “reasons to quit” and setting rewards for yourself.
If saving money is your goal, Emma integrates all your bank accounts into one place and gives an insight into your spending behaviour - identifying wasteful subscriptions, breaking down your outgoings into categories and setting budgets and debt repayments.
Turn your resolution into a virtual game with Habitica, which lets you input your goals, then rewards you with prizes like gold and armour for your avatar when you complete them. Keeping on track unlocks new features and access to higher levels, while players can team up with other users for competitive accountability challenges.
For those looking to volunteer more time to help others, a volunteering app like onHand, which covers London, matches you up with tasks to help older adults living near you, like collecting their medication or dropping off some shopping.
To Do Reminder is pretty much summed up by its title - it lets you set notifications to remind you about your resolution, repeat them at whatever intervals you decide and utilises voice commands to save you typing them out.
If you’re trying a new exercise regime, a workout log like Fitnotes lets you set a schedule, review your progress using graphs, copy previous routines and track your body measurements and personal records.
If your desired life change involves looking for a change of job or career, an app like LinkedIn can alert you of suitable positions that come up depending on role, experience, location and salary.
When enthusiasm for your resolution is waning, ThinkUp can remind you why you made it through affirmations on topics including weight loss, happiness, health and success. You can read and listen to the affirmations or record them in your own voice, plus set reminders, music and backgrounds.
