Holidays are over. 2020 is behind us. It’s time to get ready for an organized, stylish, fun-filled, healthy, and fabulous 2021. We’ll all have to endure the barrage of gym, fitness programs, and weight loss commercials, forcing us to consider putting together a list of New Year’s Resolutions. And there’s probably an app for each one. Here are some apps to organize your life and help you achieve your goals!
(ICYMI – here’s how you can stick to your New Year’s Resolutions this year!)
Apps to organize your life
Track your spending and create a budget with the Mint app. It syncs all of your accounts, categorizes your spending, and creates a budget.
Start weekly meal plans using Paprika, which is the best meal planning app. Use it to store recipes from the internet, create a meal calendar, and create a grocery list from the ingredients.
Keep meeting notes, journal entries, goals, ideas, and master to do lists stored in Evernote, One Note, GoodNotes, or Apple Notes. All of the apps have similarities. Evernote is my favorite. I use OneNote for work and GoodNotes because you can draw in it and it’s fun.
Share grocery lists with the Apple Notes app. You’ll always know what you need from Target, the grocery store, Costco, etc. Whoever is running the errands will have an up-to-date list!
Apps that encourage healthy habits
Make healthier choices by joining Weight Watchers. The lifestyle app tracks your food, exercise and more. Be encouraged to make healthy choices that help you lose weight, if that’s your goal.
My Fitness Pal is a free app that lets you track what you’re eating and exercise.
Workout from home like you’re in the gym with Aaptiv or Apple Fitness+. Apple Fitness+ syncs directly with the Apple Watch. It features a library of video workouts from different coaches you can do at home from yoga to treadmill workouts. Aaptiv app has a huge catalog of workouts with some video and mostly audio. (Related: these apps can also help you get 30 minutes of exercise a day)
Start meditating with Headspace, Calm, or Shine. Studies show meditation has many benefits, including reducing anxiety and improving concentration.
