Happy 2013, everyone! Hope you all have recovered from your champagne hangovers and are now ready to get on track with those lofty resolutions for the new year. And, if you need a little help (which I’m betting you do), here are 5 resolution apps that will help you on your way to smaller dress sizes, bigger bank accounts, healthier lungs, better jobs, and exciting destinations.
1. MyQuit Coach
MyQuit Coach is the quit-smoking app that creates a personalized plan to help you evaluate your status, set goals, and adjust preferences that fit your needs. Cold turkey is not for everyone, most need some assistance to kick this highly-addictive habit. With apps like MyQuit Coach, there’s really no excuse. Oh yeah, and it’s free.
2. Pay Off Debt
Pay Off Debt is an app that I should throw into my collection. It creates a detailed profile for each type of debt you have (loans, credit cards, etc.) and helps you keep track and pay them down. It shows current balances, monthly payments and how many years it will take to pay the balance (which is the most scary part, if you ask me).
iPersonalTrainer is the app that will help you with arguably the most made resolution each year, weight loss. It has over 350 built-in exercises with workout routines that will increase strength, tone your body, and help you lose weight. This app is $1.99, which is a bargain for a hot 2013 bod.
4. What color is your parachute
So, you’re ready to ditch your job for more interesting pursuits. Excellent. What color is your parachute is the app that will help you ace your job interview and land your dream job. After all, the interview is pretty much the make or break. With this app, there’s no need for interview nerves.
5. National Geographic Travel Magazine
This is by far my favorite app. National Geographic Travel Magazine has created an amazing app to help you discover wondrous places all over the world. Hopefully one of your 2013 goals is to take a vacation, and this is the app that will certainly help you with inspiration.
New Year’s resolutions are usually fizzled out by March, but they don’t have to be. These apps are excellent helpers to make you a healthier, happier and generally better person for 2013. Definitely worth a gander. I know I’ll be gazing at the National Geographic Travel Magazine for the next few hours, plotting my next escape (living back on your parent’s couch is a great motivator for escape too).
