After the confetti has been cleared from the streets and the crystal ball stored away for another year, resolutions have been made, posted online and are in the process of fulfillment.
For many people, exercising, saving money and reducing stress are top priorities. Luckily there are a few apps that can aid in accomplishing those resolutions.
Here are a few of Experimac Midtown Atlanta’s favorites:
- Apps like 30Day Fitness Challenges are designed to ease you back in to an active life. This app focuses on one exercise that uses your own bodies weight and begins with low repetitions and gradually increases over the course of 30 days. You should have a noticeable improvement at the end of each month. The areas of focus can change and you can also change the level of intensity from beginner to intermediate and then to advanced, so you have plenty of room to develop.
- Digit is an app that helps you save money. Digit moves small amounts of money from your bank account to your digit savings account. This is done daily and the amounts are small enough where it won’t cause an overdraft in your account. The acorn app is the app that rounds up the cost of your purchases and uses the collective difference as a means to invest. So essentially whenever you purchase something the cost is rounded up to the nearest dollar and the amount that is over the actual cost of your purchase is saved and invested for you.
- The Headspace app uses conventions such as screen dimming and notification blocking as just a few of the means to help you de-stress by crafting a phone life balance. Meditation Studio is another app option to help with stress. This app provides both guided and unguided meditations that cover topics such as pep talks, slowing down, profound relaxation and more.
Happy New Year and lets us know your thoughts about these new Apps.
