A few Android apps to keep your New Years resolutions going strong
If you’re like me, you set New Years resolutions for yourself right around this time. It might be to quit smoking, work out more, be more independent, or maybe even to sleep in more. It’s no secret that most of us can never follow through on these goals, as they fade away by the end of the new year. Well, here are five free apps that should be able to help with sticking to those resolutions.
1. Cozi Family Organizer
Cozi Family Organizer is a great calendar app for your Android device. It’s packed with great features, and helps you stay on top of your schedule. With Cozi, you’ll never forget that resolution, as long as you’ve got it in your schedule somewhere.
2. Lose It!
The name of this one more or less speaks for itself. Lose It is a tool to help you keep track of your weight loss, calorie intake, and much more. You can set a goal for yourself within the app, and design your own calorie budget so that you can lose the weight and keep it off!
RunKeeper is great for those of you aiming to get more cardio in for 2012. It uses GPS to track your runs, along with audio cues and customized interval workouts, so you never miss a beat. If your New Years resolution is to get some jogging done, RunKeeper is the app for you.
Maybe you want to save a few bucks in the new year. Enter SmartyPig. While the name is a bit misleading, SmartyPig is an app designed to help you reach that financial goal of yours. With SmartyPig, you can create individual FDIC-insured savings goals, and set aside money for each of them as you see fit. For example, you could set one specifically for a new Android phone, and by the time the next killer device is released, you’ve got money saved up to get one.
5. Quit Now!
Getting rid of that box of cigarettes is one of the most common New Years resolutions around, and Quit Now is here to help. It tracks the time between cigarettes, and helps you map out a schedule to gradually quit smoking. It even gives health stats based on your smoking history, and you can keep track of those little victories with the Achievements tab.
That should at least get you started on your New Years resolutions. What apps are you using to stick to your resolutions? Drop a comment below!
