New year, new you? Apps to download to kickstart your 2021

App store

It’s a new year and a new you! Or perhaps it’s the same you but with a renewed energy to work towards your goals and aspirations.   Kind of like a fresh start and who doesn’t like that? We’ve sifted through the hundreds of apps now available to pick our favorite ones that we think can help you along in kick starting 2021 on the right foot.

 

Qapital – After the holiday season perhaps the most needed app is one that helps you budget.  That’s where Qapital comes in! An app that lets you define your financial goals and automate savings to reach them.  It also has some quirky triggers that ask you to make a deposit like a shopping spree or a rainy day.

 

Headspace – You keep promising yourself this year will be the year you make more time to work on yourself and learn how to meditate which can be quite intimidating for some.  Well this app is meant to do exactly that.  Led by former Buddhist monk Andy Puddicombe, the app has curated plans to guide you through a series of mindfulness programs with the assistance of soothing voices and engaging animations.

 

Breakfree – Sometimes we need an app to protect us from all the other apps that seem to suck up endless hours of our precious time. Breakfree helps you breakfree from your phone addiction by monitoring your usage and helping you put the breaks on when necessary so you can spend more time in the real world as you promised yourself you would.

 

Pact – Ready to take your fitness resolutions to a whole new level.  Pact is sure to do that because this app makes you put your money where your mouth is.  You set your fitness/ nutrition goals and how much you will pay other Pact members if you don’t reach them.  You have the chance to make money through the app if you do and you definitely lose money if you don’t.  No excuses now!
