Here at YM we're all about those resolutions, however sticking to new year goals is no easy feat. We've come up with a list of 5 essential apps to help you stick to your resolutions and make 2017 an amazing year for a new you.
1: 5K Run - Couch to 5K
This is the app you need to work on your fitness this year. You can literally be in no fit shape to exercise and this app will help you build up endurance and stamina, both of which are essential for exercising. The app also helps you take your fitness journey at your own pace which is so important for 5K newbies.
2: Headspace - Meditation
Mental wellbeing is a huge aspect of modern life and although "mindfulness" may feel like a trend, it's definitely one we're on board with. This app teaches you all the essential tools for meditation in a clear and simple way. A lot of people find the idea of taking up meditation daunting, using Headspace will help you overcome this. By spending just 10 minutes a day on the app will help you stress less, focus more and sleep better....Sign us up!
Yes perhaps Tinder is a bit of a cliché, but let's be real, for a lot of people finding a soul mate is a very important new year goal. Perhaps Tinder isn't the exact app for you but the concept still stands, if you're looking to meet someone you have to put yourself out there. So find the perfect app to suit your needs, take a gorge selfie and get on there because it's unlikely a knight in shining armour will bump in to you on the morning bus to work.
Be prepared to shock everyone in your life when you learn a new language this year. If you're considering a cultural change for 2017 then Duolingo can help you learn French, German, Spanish and loads more. It's easy to navigate and you get a bonus for hitting daily goals, for those of us who are competitive, this is extremely important. Download it - c'est magnifique!
So if you have stuck to the above 4 apps you're going to be running, meditating and going on multiple multilingual dates. Basically you're now going to be too busy and too fabulous to do your own washing. Our fave Laundrie will pick up all your dirty clothes and bring them back to you cleaned, pressed and ready to wear. You're such an incredibly well rounded person now, you definitely deserve the treat.
Happy new year everyone and best of luck with your resolutions.
