These Apps Will Actually Change Your Life


    How do you break bad habits and form good ones?

    Create small, manageable goals and track your progress.

    Pfft – so easy, right? Right??

    Kicking bad habits or establishing good new ones is no walk in the park. But, yes, you CAN do it and it can even be fun.

    According to one study, it takes 66 days to form a habit. If you can stick with actually making your bed for just over two months, it's more likely that you'll be able to stick with it . . . forever.

    These apps will remind you to actually complete your habit every day and keep you motivated!

    1. HabitBull (free, iOS and Android) is my favorite habit tracking app you don't have to pay for.

    Another feature I love is being able to set a target date for each habit.

    2. Productive (free, iOS) creates an easy-to-read daily habit schedule.

    3. Strides (free, web) is great for specific goals, like saving X amount or reading X number of books.

    Strides is ideal for money-related goals and saving habits.

    4. Streaks ($4, iOS and potentially Android) is perfect for health and fitness goals.

    5. Habitica (free, iOS, Android, web) is an app that turns goal and task management into a fun video game.

    6. (free, iOS, Android, and web) offers pre-made habit "plans" and personal coaches available for hire.

    7. Momentum (free, iOS and Mac) is a *very* minimal app that focuses on "chains" or streaks.

    8. Habit Streak (free, Android) encourages you to complete your new habits every day.

    You're already off to a great start for taking the initiative! WE BELIEVE IN YOU.
