Looking to find your zen? There’s an app for that. Want to quit smoking? Yes, there’s an app for that. Need a plus to see your favorite band in concert? There’s an app for that, too. No matter what resolution you have for 2019, you’re almost guaranteed to find help just a click and a download away. These five new apps will help you achieve your goals:
- Resolution: More Mindfulness. App: Sway.
Sway is not your average meditation app – it is an “interactive meditation experience” that helps users practice meditation using movement. Think along the lines of Tai Chi: slow, continuous, gentle movement that calms the mind and body. You can even use this interactive meditation to practice mindfulness in noisy, active environments.
- Resolution: Stop Smoking. App: Quit Genius.
Quit Genius is an app that is scientifically-proven to help you quit smoking for good. Based on the idea that gamifying helps build (or in this base, break) habits, the app uses video clips, audio sessions, interactive exercises and mindfulness sessions to deliver behavioral therapy in a fun way that doesn’t feel like work. The app was made by doctors, and has helped over 700,000 people quit smoking.
- Resolution: Get Out More. App: WillCalled.
Think of every concert, sporting event, comedy show or movie you wanted to attend but didn’t because your friends were busy or you didn’t want to do through the hassle of finding a date. Well, WillCalled is here to change that in 2019. The app connects users who are interested in the same event, allowing them to swipe, match and chat. Once you find a connection, planning the first date is simple. It’s a win-win – meet more people, see more concerts.
- Resolution: Call Your Mom! App: SocialCall.
Life gets busy, and even though we have a smart phone in our hand at all times, we often forget to actually use the phone function. Whether you’re moving, starting a new job, or just as busy as ever in 2019, SocialCall will help you stay in touch with the people you care about by setting favorite contacts and reminding you to contact them on a regular basis. Might seem silly, but if your resolution is to call your mom more or invest more in your friendships, then this app is for you.
- Resolution: Be a Morning Person. App: WakingNews Alarm Clock.
Mornings are tough, but they don’t have to be – thanks to WakingNews Alarm Clock, your AM routine just got easier. This app will start reading the day’s top headlines as it wakes you up so you not only actually get out of bed, but also get your news fix at the same time. No more falling back asleep!
