Happy New Year!
Sticking to New Year’s Resolutions isn’t easy – in fact, some estimates say that 80% of people will break theirs by mid-February! However, if you have a smartphone, there are plenty of apps you can use to help keep your New Year’s Resolutions.
To find any of these apps, just search for the name in the app store on your phone or, if you’d like to research them a little bit first, search on Google.
This is a great app if your resolution is to get fit or just to be a little bit more active. Despite the name, this also tracks other activities like walking and cycling. The free version is very good, giving you insights into the distance you’ve walked/run/cycled and an approximation of the calories you’ve burned. Pay for premium if you want to see more in-depth insight into your fitness, pace, etc.
